Next generation console confusion

Source: The Verge

This post highlights some of the confusion that I’m feeling about the next generation of consoles. I was already set (and had preordered) the PS5 but have since cancelled in light of my work situation but regardless I’m struggling to understand what will work and what won’t.

My current PS4 Pro will play one of my most anticipated games in Spider-man Miles Morales but the upgrade path to what will work on PS5 if purchased on PS4 is mind boggling. I’ve worked in IT for over 20 years and can’t get my head around it all!

I am now looking at the XBOX Series X for my next generation choice (given game passed choice of games and saving I can make) and I still can’t completely figure out if the Halo series will play on the Series X if I got one.

Anyone else holding off to see how it pans out?
