I seems insane to me that some people expect it, or will be disappointed if you can't pop a PS2 disk into the PS5 and play. It would definitely be a neat feature but it's so far out of the realm of things I'd expect from a new console.
@sombre: Aw man, I loved VGCW too. I'd always order a pizza and chill for a couple hours of silliness. The best had to be watching Scorpion ascend from the midkard to becoming the most dominant champion in history. That and the PRATS. And Illidan. And Gaben. And pretty much everything.
@cikame: I'm with you, I love She-Hulk, though honestly a lot of that is because of the comics. (Her's was one of the first I ever remember buying as a kid. Spider-Man on the cover, a giant green lady, five year old me knew this must be awesome.) She was Deadpool before Deadpool! Plus I always loved the dichotomy of her being a super-strong ass-kicker along with being a lawyer. If there was a way to combine the two in a game, like a third-person action game with Phoenix Wright courtroom battles sprinkled in, that would be perfect.
Most of my other choices would be more obscure, not because I'm too cool for school but because most of the big name superheroes already have multiple games devoted to them. Starman, Deadman, Doom Patrol, Adam Strange. But I would really love to see a solid Fantastic Four game too, they've never gotten much of the spotlight outside of a terrible PS1 game.
I agree $30 is too high but the LOTR comparison doesn't really work, those movies are old and have been available in other ways, including broadcast. While Mulan is a brand new never-before-seen film (well, a remake, but you know what I mean).
Most of the VOD stuff I've seen has been $20, and that's a fair price to me. Bill & Ted 3 is that price and I plan on getting that day one. One bonus of Disney's plan is that you do get to keep Mulan, it's not a rental, but even then $30 is a bit steep. (Plus you still have to keep your D+ subscription to watch it, which is a little scummy.)
