lmao @ PS2 having one of the best launch lineups.

I think I've seen it all now. :rofl:

I never said launch homie. I said first year Q4 2000-Q4 2001…and yeah that one year had way more hits than 2020-2021 (or really any period I can think of). Probably the best 12 month period in gaming history.

Well, when you been releasing hits after hits for the past 3 years, that will really help you drive sales for your next generation console. It's the games thats been driving the sales. Also for the last time, the first year of the PS5 games is not over yet and the games that came out so far are way better than the first year PS2 games. If this generation will be defined 2-3 years from now, then why are you making comparison when the console hasn't even reach the 1 year mark?

I also have no clue, why you are so worried about the PS5 being successful in number of units sold.

I’m not worried at about console sales numbers. Just saying I don’t get the hype is all. People act like these systems poop $100 bills lol. The same goes for the series x/s atm.

Picked up the Xbox version as I hear it’s the best one to buy. Will not play it till it gets the next gen update. Into the backlog it goes lol.

Returnal is great but damn I suck. Still stuck in the first biome.

Lol exactly why I don’t want to pay full price. I get frustrated as all hell at overly difficult games.

Returnal is 60gb, so it takes 8.99% of the ssd. 60/667 Returnal looks like a fun PS5 exclusive! I will play it this week. I am looking fwd to playing Ratchet this summer and HZD2 later this year!

I hear it’s a love it or hate it game. Waiting for it to be in psn….it seems like one of those games.

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.

Seems like Microsoft will do more m&as of major studios. I can see gamepass being a bigger deal in 5-10 yrs. I can also see the price jumping up too in that timeframe. Wouldn’t shock me if m$ made some big moves soon.

5.5.GB/s. the custom speed of the custom NVME ssd of the PS5. It honestly fails to impress on games. SpidermanMilesMorales, Sackboy Big Adventure, Godfall, Astrobot; Destruction All Stars; fortnite. I played every one of these titles. NVME ssd is a hugely overrated tech feature of both new consoles.

That’s odd man. The lack of load times/minimal load times is my favorite thing about current gen.

So my PS5 showed up this morning from the Walmart drop. Walmart still says preparing order and has not charged me for it with the option to cancel.

Best Buy did that to me with instore pickup. Eventually they charged me like a week later. Walmart is a shit show so who knows what they’ll do.

Agreed. Scalpers are lame...but a $100 to $150 cushion post tax is reasonable considering the shortages. You’d easily waste that in time value of money.

Yeah my whole point is your time is money as well. That amount of effort starts compounding. Sooner or later someone will take the 700-750 offer. Honestly think these are harder to buy now than they were over Christmas but the markup is smaller.

For anyone who has a PS5 currently, is it true about the joystick drift similar to the joycon drift on the switch?

Even with the switch I never had it. Some people (kids in particular) can be overly rough with controllers. Adults move with more precision as our motor skills are refined.

Same here. Need a digital for the TV in the bedroom. Let’s go Target.

If you already own a ps5 and a ps4 you can remote play to your ps4 and it’s like having two ps5s in one. I’m doing that with my living room and bedroom. Or if you have an avr with multiple rooms setup you can run one ps5 to two TVs.

I'm still amazed that it makes the Series X look small.

The series x is actually pretty small/normal sized IMO. The ps5 is a large commanding beast of a machine. Practically a pc tower.

Antonline has series S bundle for $440.
Extra controller 3 months gpu and forza horizon 4 digital code.

Lol why would you need the horizon 4 code if you have gpu? Weird bundle. Also this system isn’t that hard to find to justify a bundle.

My bet is that the major titles end up becoming like 6-month timed exclusives, or something of that nature. I don't think MS will want to lock out PS players, but they'll definitely want to exploit their ownership to gain some advantage. Of course they can also release on Game Pass to promote the service.

I personally think maybe a few titles at first will be time exclusives but after a few years they’ll be Xbox, game pass, and pc only outings. Personally I don’t care. I own the series x and ps5 for this reason. If theirs an exclusive I want, then I’m always covered.

Advice needed: I have a room with a 48” TV that’s not 4k/HDR.

Would a Series X be overkill? Or should I just get a series S for that room since I have 2 more years of game pass ultimate. I’m kinda anti- digital only but seeing as the tv isn’t great I don’t want to spend another +$200 if it’s overkill.

Finally I would try to sell my one S plus some games for around $200 to offset the upgrade.

No I use mine and my ps5 on a 47 inch 1080p screen. Looks great and you’re future proofing.
