    Seriously though, I never got an Xbone, and my last PlayStation was the ps2 (which I got pretty much exclusively for the Armored Core games...)


    I mean, I get the draw to consoles in a way. They tend to be cheaper than a good PC. But they always go obsolete after like 5~ years whereas a good pc can last 10~ years depending on specs and hardware advances.

    But honestly even the 'cheaper than a pc' thing is arguable now since you usually end up having the subscription shit and needing to download games and stuff.

    Games and exclusives are king. The primary determined of a console is what games it has. Sony won that fight last gen and I see no reason to expect this generation to be different.

    It looks like the $300 xbox is basically everything the 500 one is, but 1440p, 500gb ssd and no disk drive...

    That's a pretty good fucking deal. Especially if you don't have a massive 4k tv.

    Again, too bad there's no reason to own one.

    On the plus side, I always hope this pushes Sony to be more consumer friendly. Microsoft's primary purpose in the space imo /shrug

    I don't think the mid-tier consoles are going to sell anywhere near as well as Sony and Microsoft are hoping. After all, we're coming straight off the final disc-based generation, so no disk drive is going to be a non-starter for most people who are looking for backwards compatibility.

    Sony's not offering that option AFAWK.

    The digital console is the exact same as the disk one in every way bar the disk drive.

    If there's a significant price difference, I'll be getting digital. I bought one physical PS4 game over the entire generation, so not bothered.

    PS5 Showcase in roughly 12 hours from now.

    'Our next digital showcase will weigh in at around 40 minutes, and feature updates on the latest titles from Worldwide Studios and our world-class development partners.'

    Personally, unless we're getting insane shadow drops for the release window, I'd rather they just spent 40 minutes on the UI and features...

    Due to some hastily deleted tweets that were super innocuous and didn't actually need deleting, the rumor is that we're getting big FF news, be it a full trailer for FF7R.2 or an FF16 tease.

    Not a huge stretch, given that Squenix always has major FF announcements for every console launch.

    Remake 2 would certainly sell consoles...

    Btw, I'm hearing they've had to cut on production of millions of consoles due to manufacturing problems. Be prepared for wide shortages if you don't get one early - if you even care to.

    Ff16 console exclusive, wow...

    Harry Potter thing is annoying. I wish it was further back in time or not in the past. 'Shaping the legacy' of Hogwarts feels a bit meaningless to me in 1800, when others are not too far from entering the scene and having a bigger impact...

    There we go, a proper trailer.

    Going by the logos on the official website, this is a multiplatform game, coming out for Playstation, Xbox and PC - no indication if it's EGS, Steam or any kind of digital storefront exclusive.

    GOD OF WAR 2021 LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Honestly, being able to play every PS4 console exclusive + a few more on day 1 on PS5 for 'free' with PS+ is petty smart and great for onboarding.

    Still like everything about it except the stupid ancient power gimmick. Game devs seemed to have forgotten that characters don't need a unique power to be special.

    EUR is 1,2 USD at the moment. About 17% difference between prices in Europe and America and it probably will be even more.

    As for HP, it can be good, but since it's not happening anywhere close to the canon, the new characters really need to win the fans.

    Pre ordered. Bought the digital one, it's $150 Aud cheaper at 599 (normal is 750AUD)

    Edit:

    (Demons Souls)

    With this in mind, we fine-tuned the title to ensure the game remains fresh and appeals to new users accustomed to modern controls and experiences...

    ...Following the PS5 event, a representative for Sony confirmed that the text indicating Demon's Souls would be coming to PC and other consoles in addition to PS5 was "included in error." As of now, the game is only slated for a PS5 launch.

    Wasn't super impressed by anything in the FF16 reveal. Looks like they're developing solely with Unreal 4, and instead of being innovative with the setting, they've reverted back to a standard knights and crystals schtick from the pre FF5 era. This one is going to sink or swim on story and characters.

    Miles Morales setpiece was sexy as fuck.

    Hogwarts Legacy could end up being great, or could end up being a travesty. Time will tell.

    Oddworld is going to be a real trip.

    Demon's Souls remake looked.... I dunno... clunky?

    The Playstation Plus collection (assuming the games are fully free with PS+) is a huge win for Sony.


    God of War 2021 has me fully erect and they didn't even show any fucking footage.

    They're 'free' (with PS+)
