When I can play Insomniac, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica and Sucker Punch games on Game Pass I'll take a look at it.  Gamepass is in itself an amazing deal, but Microsoft hasn't released many quality games since the 360.  I suspect 2 or 3 years from now some of these 1st party investments Microsoft has made will start releasing great games, until that time comes Microsoft is behind both Sony and Nintendo when it comes to games I enjoy. 

Yep, and I've never cared about any MS first-party games either. The studios you listed off are one-trick ponies now under Sony's guidance; being forced to regurgitate the same games over and over as they're only interested in blockbusters now.

 

Sony has a new real threat: management.

Meanwhile, Nintendo is selling $50 WiiU games for $60 and laughing.

Huh?  First party WiiU games were almost always $60, and Nintendo held their prices up except for the odd sale until when and if they joined the budget line years after release.  And Nintendo has done a pretty good job of adding significant content to their WiiU to Switch upgrades, like Bowser's Fury wasn't some tiny throwaway piece.

I get they could charge less, but it isn't a really good choice of example.

It was kind of a mixed bag if I remember correctly. Donkey Kong TF and Wind Waker HD were $50. But I think Mario 3d world was $60. Breathe of the wild was probably $60 too.

Nice, I am surprised that it is still instock.

Hoping for a different colored dual shock controller sometime soon. I need a second one and don't want another white one.

I'll grab a blue one when the day comes but I'm fine with two white ones for now.

Why not get a plate that replaces the black part on the controller for $10? Unless you want a full paint job.

Yeah, I was waiting for the colors as well, so I went for the plates that swap out the black part of the DualSense.  Made one controller red, the other blue.  They work great and look really good.  I like different colors so I can keep track of which is which.

I didn't know it was that simple. Thank you for the heads up.

Amazon is dropping Xbox Series S/X right now. Could be a PS5 drop soon

$10 savings on the PS5 camera and controller from B&H. They don't normally have a lot of stock so order quickly or price match at BestBuy.

Every Target store claimed to have them this morning within driving distance from me. I try to buy one, says not available at each of the stores I tried. It's so ridiculous.

Same thing happened to me. It did that until it was OOS everywhere. I'm tapping out. Maybe by next year they will be readily available.

for me it was going to go though but the card company though it was going to be a fraud purchase so instead target said can't process payment method, choose a different one

I keep telling myself that, but always try to get one when I see it. I'd rather have an all black model if they ever make one in the future anyway.

I'm sure they will as well as a slim model. Good luck finding one!

Don't sweat it, you aren't missing out on much. There are no exclusive games, mine really has been collecting dust besides playing Astrobot and trophy hunting on some old games to compare the graphics/speed.

 

As far as new color, the plastic panels slide right off and are easily replaceable.

Wow man people are still having a hard time securing a ps5 after all this time that sucks. Might as well wait for a special/limited edition ps5 bundle after E3. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’ll be a ratchet n clank bundle or some other ps exclusive

They literally cannot get them on the shelves. There isn’t going to be any kind of bundle or deal until someone can buy one off the shelf.

Makes sense but damn it’s been like half a year now and Sony knows people want a different color other than white

Most consoles, when they release in special colors or editions, do so to juice sales. Sony doesn't have that need right now.

I don't understand why they don't bring back preordering...  yes, I know it's already released, but I think it would be  a better method of trying to get the consoles in the right hands.  Hell, they have been using PSN to help secure console supposedly, to an extent, or at least they did at first.  My friend got a free controller just for being a long time member, but I know I have also had a PSN account since the beginning in the PS3 days (hell I was a PlayStation Underground member in the PS1 days).  Anyway, what I am saying is...  why the hell can't they just send purchase link invites to PSN users that have had an account for many years?
