Yes, PS5 is backwards compatible with the overwhelming majority of PS4 games. This means that most - if not all - of your existing PS4 games collection will play just as well - or better - on PS5 as they do on PS4.
As a general rule you don't need an online connection to play games on PS5. However, some games - particularly dedicated online multiplayer titles - do require an internet connection to function properly.
Microsoft and NVIDIA will begin work immediately to integrate Xbox PC games into GeForce NOW, so that GeForce NOW members can stream PC games they buy in the Windows Store, including third-party partner titles where the publisher has granted streaming rights to NVIDIA.

This article examines recent combat veterans' experiences of "first-person shooter" (FPS) gaming and its relationship to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Current PTSD treatment approaches increasingly use virtual reality (VR) technologies, which have many similarities with FPS games. To explore these similarities, this article presents six case studies from recently separated veterans in New York City who reported both current PTSD symptoms and regular use of combat-themed FPS games. In open-ended interviews, participants discussed a range of benefits as well as the importance of regulating use and avoiding particular contextual dimensions of gaming to maintain healthy gaming habits. Findings demonstrate the need for more comprehensive study and dissemination of best-practices information about FPS gaming in the context of combat-related PTSD symptomatology.
Call of Duty (often acronymized to CoD) is a first-person shooter video game franchise published by Activision. Starting out in 2003, it first focused on games set in World War II. Over time, the series has seen games set in the midst of the Cold War, futuristic worlds, and the modern day. The games were first developed by Infinity Ward, then also by Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games. Several spin-off and handheld games were made by other developers. The most recent title, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, was released on October 28, 2022.
The series originally focused on the World War II setting, with Infinity Ward developing the first (2003) and second (2005) titles in the series and Treyarch developing the third (2006). Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007) introduced a new, modern setting, and proved to be the breakthrough title for the series, creating the Modern Warfare sub-series. The game's legacy also influenced the creation of a remastered version, released in 2016. Two other entries, Modern Warfare 2 (2009) and Modern Warfare 3 (2011), were made. The sub-series received a reboot with Modern Warfare in 2019, with a sequel released in 2022. Infinity Ward have also developed two games outside of the Modern Warfare sub-series, Ghosts (2013) and Infinite Warfare (2016). Treyarch made one last World War II-based game, World at War (2008), before releasing Black Ops (2010) and subsequently creating the Black Ops sub-series. Four other entries, Black Ops II (2012), III (2015), 4 (2018), and Cold War (2020) were made, the latter in conjunction with Raven Software. Sledgehammer Games, who were co-developers for Modern Warfare 3, have also developed three titles, Advanced Warfare (2014), WWII (2017), and Vanguard (2021).
As of April 2021[update], the series has sold over 400 million copies. Meanwhile, the games in the series have consistently released annually to blockbuster-level sales, the series is verified by the Guinness World Records as the best-selling first-person shooter game series. It is also the most successful video game franchise created in the United States and the fourth best-selling video game franchise of all time. Other products in the franchise include a line of action figures designed by Plan B Toys, a card game created by Upper Deck Company, Mega Bloks sets by Mega Brands, and a comic book miniseries published by WildStorm Productions.

The game was officially revealed on May 30, 2019, and released on October 25, 2019.

AM General, the manufacturer of the Humvee, sued Activision in 2017 for using the Humvee in multiple Call of Duty games. A federal district judge gave Activision a summary motion in its favor to dismiss the case in April 2020, stating that the purpose of the use of the Humvee in the games, to provide military realism, was quite different from the trademark purpose that AM General had established, for selling to the military.
The Bears have won their last four Thursday games, two in prime time and two on Thanksgiving. They defeated the Lions 24-20 on Thanksgiving 2019 in Detroit, the Cowboys 31-24 on Thursday Night Football Dec. 5, 2019, at Soldier Field, the Buccaneers 20-19 on Thursday Night Football at Soldier Field and the Lions 16-14 on Thanksgiving 2021. Overall, the Bears are 6-8 on Thursday Night Football, 3-2 at home and 3-6 on the road.
Senior writer Larry Mayer discusses which former Bears players are with the Falcons, if a quarterback has ever rushed for 100 yards in three straight games and who previously held the Bears record for longest TD run by a quarterback.
The PlayStation 5 launched in November 2020, and most retailers have been consistently sold out of both the $500 PS5 and the $400 PS5 Digital Edition ever since. With the PlayStation and Xbox platforms offering similar graphics capabilities (at least on paper) at similar prices, the reasons to choose a PlayStation over an Xbox revolve mostly around which games you want to play and how you want to play them.
MLB officials say the pitch clock can help reduce the length of games, which have averaged more than three hours long in recent years. But the new rule has drawn some criticism, and over the weekend it caused bewilderment on the diamond.
Dallas has scored a power play goal in three of the past four games. That's on the heels of a six-game drought and a couple of months where it was hitting at 9.6 percent. In this current stretch they are still only 3-for-15 (20 percent), so there is room for improvement. But at least the man advantage is moving in the right direction.
That's huge for a Stars team who has struggled to score goals. In recent games, those three power play goals helped the Stars score 12 overall. It's a major boost from the 2.5 they were averaging for most of January and February.
Stars forward Tyler Seguin unleashed a one-timer on Wednesday and tallied a huge power play goal. It's the kind of shot that Seguin used to make on a regular basis in the past, but it has been rare in recent seasons. This could be a sign that good things are coming for him.
The Stars were clicking around 30 percent for the first 35 games this season, and that might be too lofty a pace to expect. But if the power play can be around 25 percent, the team's scoring woes could be a thing of the past.
"We've got to go on the road and have a better start. We've got to stop putting ourselves in a hole early in games. That's the big thing for me. There was a lot of good hockey played, we carried the play for long stretches after that, but you can't put yourself in those holes in this league."
