    yeah, if you're thinking about holding off, probably best to instead of trying to scramble and find a card during this initial launch. i imagine they're gonna sell quickly and who knows how restocking is gonna be right now.

    $500 is reasonable for a nice new piece of kit like this.

    I'll never understand this new idea of selling the gimped version of a console, without the disc drive, for $100 cheaper. Go big, buy the real deal, or wait for a price drop.

    I've got a good deal of Playstation 4 games - God Of War 2018, Spider-Man, and Horizon in my backlog as far as games I still need to give some time to. Also, Ghosts of Sushi Mom, The Last Of Joel 2, and Doom Eternal (among others) I'm holding off on picking up.

    I find Harry Potter about as exciting as watching paint dry, so Hogwarts doesn't do anything for me. That, and JK Transphobe is a cunt, so I'm not about to start supporting anything Harry Potter anyway.

    Spider-Morales-Man looks like a decent "expand-alone". If that's a launch game, its a good one. And God Of War 2 should be good. But that's like a year off.

    Honestly, even with the excitement of buying a new system, I'm just glad I saved a few of the last-gen standouts to play on it. Because it seems like launch releases are thin on the ground, because of Covid-19 shit.

    PS5's not really that gimped though. Compared to the Xbox cheaper version that is actually lower specs. The PS5 is the same specs just with no disc drive. I haven't bought a PS4 disc game since the Persona 5 Collector's Edition in 2016. I just don't see a game that for me is must have and I play games on my phone or switch more than I touch my PS4 as it is.

    so apparently that bit about demon's souls being on pc was a mistake and it's actually a ps5 exclusive for the foreseeable future. they also confirmed it's a launch title.

    I think it was a "mistake" the same way Death Stranding being announces for PC the first time was. It most likely comes to PC, just not right now. I suck at souls games though so it doesn't really concern me.

    Ah yeah, The Dark Souls games. The video game equivalent of nailing your balls to a chair. For fun.

    Not my style to play. But they're a ton of fun to watch.

    Got my preorder, If I hadn't sold my ps4 because there are no exclusives that are coming out after I finished Tshushima I would have waited a while

    The new ps plus feature will be a nice placeholder to keep me going until the games start flowing.

    Luckily my brother is getting an xbox so I can rent Halo/Fable/Forza when they release and Gears if they do another?

    On another note, You lovely nerds who seem to know about tech and specs etc I would like to shoot a question about my tv if anyone also knows about that area, let me know and I'll send a pm, cheers.

    It sucks because I can't see them giving long term support to Deathloop because it's a PS5 exclusive (which they've said they'll still honour)

    Ah yes you're right, it is just a timed exclusive.

    Also I'm not sure how exclusive they're going to be especially since they're basically releasing every xbox game on PC. They just see this as a way to not have to solely rely on hardware (for their games business)

    Have they set the release games for each console? I have only seen theoretical articles so far.

    Spider Man -- Miles Morales is a Playstation 5 launch game, isn't it?

    Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition is a day and date digital edition. Available at console launch.

    Not sure what's in for X-Box SX.

    Overcooked 2's recently been added to Xbox Games for PC.

    If we've got another 3 people here who use the service, fancy some cooking mayhem?

    Cyberpunk is running so bad on consoles that Sony REMOVED it from the store and is offering full refunds to anyone who bought it.

    That is gigantic.

    I don't have quite the PC for Cyberpunk but my internet is good enough I can stream it over the internet with GeForce Now. The future is crazy, running a PC game on high settings with nothing saved, over the internet.

    The only bugs I've encountered are the usual open world kind, nothing game breaking.

    That's the future of gaming, the removal of need for hardware.

    I don't think so although I see why its being pushed as such. I think its difficult to imagine a lack of latency making it ultimately appealing enough to justify people not buying what are, lets be honest, really cheap machines (consoles). I think there will always be some form of dedicated gaming hardware out there.

    It is great for certain games though. I get quite a lot of use out of PS Now.

    I don't think entertainment hubs will disappear, just that they won't be a necessity to play the latest games.
