Do you think the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett would share their major games with the PS4 and Xbox One?

Remember when the PS4 and Xbox One came out in 2013? Most of the major games that were coming out for them also had versions that came out on the PS3 and Xbox 360, including Grand Theft Auto V, Destiny, Alien: Isolation, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Advanced Warfare, & Black Ops III, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes & The Phantom Pain, Tomb Raider, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Battlefield 4, and Rayman Legends, among others. Game developers started canceling PS3 & Xbox 360 versions of their major games beginning in 2015; Call of Duty: Black Ops III is the last one I can recall.

Do you think this will also happen when the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett come out in 2020? Will we still be lucky enough to get PS4 and Xbox One versions of major games for 2 years after the next generation has started? If so, would you actually be happy about that; why or why not? If not, what made that work before, and why won't it happen again this time around?

I don't think so I think 360/PS3 held up this current gen slightly. I think both will move on quicker probably Xbox more than ps4 as they want to move on from this disastrous generation.

Maybe within the first year. Something like GTA V would definitely be available on the PS5 and Scarlett I'd imagine. Last of Us Part II as well.

For the first year or 2 yeah, especially with the 3rd party multiplats. There is usually a transition period like that between gens.

More than likely. Kinda depends on the situation though and what developers want to make though. If you can make a game for the PS5 / Xbox Scarlet, but it can easily be played on the stock PS4 / Xbox One with only minor graphical adjustments, then why not? You've just opened up yourself to the 15-35 million people who opted not to upgrade.

Publishers have realized that people will double and even triple dip when popular games are re-released (see GTAV, RDR2, TLoU), so I would not be shocked if the trend of cross-gen games increases instead of decreasing.

Not for the PS4 if Sony really wants everyone to jump to the PS5.

Xbox yeah for the first couple of years like everyone else has said.
