Definitely one of the first things I’m trying. I read somewhere 99% of PS4 games are compatible with PS5.

It would be nice for sure. I've only played the games on Wii/Wii U, so I'd definitely pick up the PS4 versions for higher quality

I am looking forward to see the games on XSX as they will run native and most with improvements.
Sony did not mention yet how good the games will work... maybe they just run but with bugs, let's see.
"Unfortunately" I already have all 4 for PS4 and X1 on 100% and am working now on PS3 and X360 to get them to 100%, but they will not run on next gen....

I just bought the Imaginators starter set for 5.50 for ps4 and I don't even have a ps4. I do have a PS5 preorder coming so I think I am safe on this buy.

Sony doesn't share a lot of information at the moment so I don't trust them, seems they have something to hide...
I have a preorder on both consoles and will compare the Skylander games on them and maybe share the outcome here.
But of course you should not decide which console to buy because of old Skylanders games smilie

i remember that the xbox portals couldnt be used on anything but a xbox, it will be interesting to see if microsoft still have that lock in place or not.

yes that is stupid...
X360 had even another portal than X1... hope XSX can use X1 (what I expect) or even better the regular one

Yeah, Microsoft is super against unlicensed devices so they require some additional tech to allow devices to work.

I remember trading in a 360 portal to GameStop for a free Skylanders (Punch Pop Fizz?), and telling the team member it’s a 360 portal. He tried telling me all portals are universal and doesn’t matter what system it’s for.

Good news, Sony released a short list of games that will only work on PS4 and none of them were TTL games.

they also said "some PS4 games may exhibit errors or unexpected behavior when played on PS5 consoles" and "try to boot and play your PS4 games on your PS5 console to see if you are happy with the play experience"
and that's what I already wrote in comment #3... we will only see in Nov so don't be to excited yet, Skylanders is not a major game series they will take care of if it doesn't run smoothly

My plan is to get a Xbox series X.
I hope (and assume) all my Xbox one games and portals will work on it.

I don't see why they wouldn't work honestly. I do hope that they give the games a slight bump on XBSX. Not that they didn't look good already.

What I really wished, is that Activision would release games 1-5 on Switch. For those who didn't amass a collection like most of us have, they could sell the characters in packs based on element for certain price points. For those of us who do have collections, they could do things like they did with Imaginators, which is allow us to scan in our characters for on the go action.

Another thing I wish to see is Microsoft add backward compatibility support for Spyro's Adventure and Giants on XBSX. Would be nice to see those get bumps in framerate and auto HDR.

Last of all, I wish Activision would pull their heads out of their butts, or TFB, and give us a new Skylanders game. Heck, if they don't want to take a risk releasing toys, just make all of the characters in each game unlockable, or bought as DLC.
