The PlayStation 5 is awesome: the DualSense controller is next-level, the launch titles are compelling, and it's got a built in UHD Blu-ray player ....but that doesn't mean it's perfect.

    • What PlayStation did right was make a new and fast way to transfer info to the GPU; this balance in what we will see in PC soon. The ps5 is a perfect balance in cost and power. Now just imagine the PC having a balance like this with the 3090 on PC it would perform far better than it is. You are lacking in knowledge again XSX has no advantage yes a good console but 0 advantage. XSX running ps1,2 games are a mod and not legal for XSS to make available or make money from. And I'd rather a remaster the originals play like trash. Watch your mouth calling me a sucker for paying people for actual work how about you give us your cash then moron. Well you don't agree with people getting cash for work yeah.

  • I'll wait until Sony actually supports their bloody hardware properly on this new generation. I'm talking specifically about PSVR. So with the PS5 we have superior hardware to run our PSVR's on. But without the SuperSampling options that could take advantage of the extra Processing and Graphics power and breath some new life into the hardware, its a pointless upgrade. Yeah we get improved loading and the odd optimization, big deal. Steam VR can manage global SuperSampling.. and Oculus tray tool a 3rd party app for Rift/Quest and do the same. Sony's PSVR support for PS5 is shite So Sony how about smashing your woeful hardware support record and release an actual move 2 with a thumbstick. Offer SuperSampling options that can globally be applied to every game and some performance modes that will utilize that power. Till then I'll stick to the PRO and my PC.

  • 9:00 I watched a test video showing that The Last of Us Part II loaded about three times faster on the PS5 than on the PS4. In half a minute rather than a minute and a half. Maybe it depends on the level. For me that’s a big improvement and was actually the main reason I decided not to buy the TLOU2 Limited edition PS4 Pro.

  • Backwards Compatibility is not that much of an advantage tho, one generation BC is more than enough.

    Dhiren TevatiaDhiren TevatiaAcum 13 Zile
  • Considering how many good emulators exist Sony could have paid the creators to put the emulator on internal storage that's no bigger than a thumb stick, or bake it into the console naturally. Then charge two to five bucks per desired game from the store and download them so they run off of the emulation software so it doesn't fuck with the main software. They could have charged eight hundred for such an edition and it would sell like god damn hotcakes. They're really shooting themselves in the foot by neglecting to do backwards compatibility. Either people get it for free through emulation or they buy games on second hand markets. It'd be easy money. The games are already complete. Zero work involved outside of whatever solution they did to make that generation run on the console.

  • The fact they showcased Rogue Galaxy was nice to me, even if Linus might not know what it is, but I'm guessing someone on his team does, or was a fan of the game. SUPER UNDERRATED JRPG, and I bought it on my PS4. I've probably beaten it at least 2-3 times, and I always enjoy going back and replaying it.

  • Where did Linus learn to do math ? He said you can buy a Xbox Series X for the price of 4 digital PS5 games. I thought the games were going to be $60 or $70 depending on the studio and their is no price difference between games on any of the new consoles. Linus shilled for Xbox. That’s what I got from this video. Only watched 7 minutes and 20 seconds of it

  • You know why psnow is actually better than gamespass? Bloodborne. There isn’t a single game on gamespass that can compete with bloodborne. I don’t like Sony very much, but I’ve played so many more games in depth on psnow or gamespass on pc which are on psnow anyway (monster hunter etc) I don’t even turn on the Xbox. Which sucks, but releasing demons souls( and not buying Bethesda ffs) as a ps5 launch title kinda cemented the reason of why I bought one in the first place, and why I am going to wait on the Xbox. They actually release awesome games that you can’t get on pc. When Microsoft releases a good game, it’s on pc as a better version. I just don’t see how an Xbox fits in. You get shit like bloodborne and demons souls on ps5. You get sheer quantity and higher quality on pc. Nintendo has a portable indie gaming machine plus Zelda and monster hunter. Xbox series s looks awesome by the way and I don’t hate them by any means, I just don’t see the point of buying one over the the other 3 options. PSA for idiots like the guy below: You can download all ps4 games. Making it objectively fucking better than games pass. Also I own a subscription to both, gears 5 and sunset overdrive are the only two amazing games on it that you can’t get anywhere else( besides pc??) and they aren’t even that good... like I said pc is the best, and if you own a pc, it makes more sense to invest in a PlayStation so you can play shit like bloodborne. Or a Nintendo. What doesn’t make sense is buying into Xbox for any thing other than emulation. Unless you like it and then I could care less.

  • Well i couldn't get the appeal of the consoles until 2 days ago when the son of a friend of mine got his PS5 present. I asked him why he prefers the PS5 to the PC and he simply replied "i don't have to do anything, Sony does everything for me". Those words just hit the nail. Consoles are the Apple and Tesla of the gaming world. They are for the people who want the end result w/o any objection on the quality unless it's a really big fault. Idk if this way of thinking and problem solving is a skill you get at birth or is taught to you as a kid, i just know i would never be able to do that - blindly follow a company just to avoid a slight inconvenience.

    • There are many reasons: 1. Cheaper than building. You are not going to get a better deal with the same or better parts when building a PC compared to buying a console. 2. Exclusives. This is mainly for the PlayStation because exclusives on Xbox can be played on PC but PlayStation exclusives which are known to be good and are well exclusive to the console. 3. Friends. A lot of people get consoles because their friends have it and they can play together. 4. Quality of life. Not everyone is a gaming nerd lots of people just enjoy turning it on and hopping on the game and that’s all it just works. As long as they can play they don’t care about specs. Consoles are especially convenient to play in bed or a distance away. 5. Media box. Consoles can act as a media device as well for streaming or watching on the big screen. 6. TV. Lot’s of people like playing games on a big screen tv and most people have their pc’s hooked up on a desk to a monitor. 7. Discs. Yes lot’s of people still like buying games on disk. Easy returns and lots of times discounted compared to digital versions. 8. Lifespan. Most people don’t need the highest most advance technology every year. They buy a console that will last for years, upgrade when one comes out and resell their old one or keep it and still use it years to come. It will still work years later. No need for ram upgrades, ssd upgrades (which you can do on console), gpu upgrades etc it will still just work. 9. Family and kids. Family’s love to play together whether it be split screen or party games it’s always more convenient on console. And kids, you don’t want them messing things up on your pc? Get a console. Easy and no risk gaming experience. 10. The separation between PC and Console. There’s people that may want to separate gaming and computer. There’s people that don’t want to put tons of money into a PC or worry if the PC can run the game. There’s people who don’t want games taking up space on the PC as they have their stuff such as work to do on it. 11. No need to fix experience. Consoles just work. They are made to play games and the developers fix any issue through updates same with games. When something goes wrong on PC you have to do it yourself. A PC is a huge file system and huge operating system good luck if the situation is bad. 12. Portability. You can bring your console anywhere and plug it in to any place with a tv such as a hotel or family member’s house. Got multiple rooms in your house as well? Easy switching from one room to another, tv to tv etc. In conclusion owning a PC has many benefits and is better but there are many reasons to own a console as well.

    • What would be a point in that? There are tons of gaming computers that outspec the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The difference that makes consoles good is that consoles are cheaper than building a pc with the same specs or better. For example if you were to build a PC with the specs on par with the PS5 those components rack more than $2,000.
