PS5 or Xbox Series X?
    #26949758 - 09/22/20 06:58 PM (3 months, 26 days ago)



Both drop in like the second week of November. Both are $500.

Anybody here getting one as soon as they come out?

I really had no plans of getting one for a while, but I was looking for a 4K blu-ray player since I just purchased an OLED TV and the 4K blu-ray players by themselves aren't exactly cheap either so I thought to myself I may as well just buy one of these consoles...because they're both 4K blu-ray capable and on top of that I'll already have one of these consoles and won't have to get one later. Two birds, one stone I guess.

So which one is the better purchase?

Dam with a baller Oled tv, both I imagine either or would be epically wild. I cant invest in that for a few years just cuz I got a tv not too long ago.

But to answer the question, obviously the ps5 is better just because :smile:

I've been eyeing one for a while since I was mesmerized by one at the store that was on display. Those deep, rich & vivid colors...just blew my mind. And I figure I watch my fair share of shows & movies, and I put a premium on picture quality so I may as well treat myself. Took me a couple years to finally pull the trigger but I finally did it :cool:

I literally just made the purchase yesterday and it doesn't arrive until Thursday

I saw a headline where a ton of Xbox preorders were taken today and supposedly a bunch of "mistakes" were made...whatever that means exactly

Fortunately they still got 6 weeks to correct whatever mistakes these were

PlayStation always. They have great PlayStation Plus perks for good free games. Really it comes down to exclusivity of games. PS has God of war, spider man, bloodbourne,uncharted, the last f us, horizon zero dawn and more. There was recently a big deal where Microsoft got Bethesda and zenimax. However due to what would be the public outrage and losses sales they explicitly said that most games will be cross platform. Past that the biggest Xbox exclusives are gears of war and Halo both of which have tapered off in recent years

I did a little research tonight and supposedly the edge goes to the Xbox. On paper anyway.

Yeah the Xbox one has a slight edge on paperwork they first came out and it turned out to be negligible at best

On paper yes the xbox is slightly better overall. But Id rather have great gameplay over 5% better graphics.

Both are large and the ps5 is pretty huge particularly. Means nothing to me. But heres reference compared to a 32".

Playstation exclusives are night and day better than xbox and the vast majority of xbox games can be played on the PC.

I'll be playing demon souls on the Ps5 on release

I’ve always gone with Xbox and I am likely to again. I feel more open minded to switching this time though. But I need to know what games are likely going to be on it. I want the battlefield 3 revision and battlefield 6 when it comes out. Those may be on PlayStation so I’d consider switching. Went to game stop today to preorder, but they were out of preorders by 9 am. They were allocated only ten.

Show me a $400 computer that can run games as good as a PS5 and I'll believe it. They are losing money on the consoles.

PC outperforms consoles if you pay way more, sure. But really, if it's so cheap to get a solid PC, by all means, link me a $400 PC because I need a new one.

My gf will be getting a ps5, which is cool for me.
I personally, probably wouldn’t even have access to a gaming console if it weren’t for her, I usually just prefer computers

I do like having the ps4 and from what I hear the ps5 is supposed to be wizard
To me, Xbox has always seemed a bit off

ps5 going to be backwards compatible w ps4 games which is a win

Well my main motivation for buying one of these consoles, as crazy as it sounds, is because they're 4K blu-ray capable. I need one for my new TV. The fact that they're next gen consoles is just the icing on the cake. I'm a very casual gamer at best these days. But even the cheap stand-alone 4K blu-ray players start at like $250, with the higher level models approaching the cost of a PS5 or the new Xbox. So I may as well just get one of the consoles then and that gives me my 4K blu-ray player and I'll have a sweet ass PS5 or Xbox Series X at my disposal to boot.

build it like I did mine and you will pay a quarter or even less

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-gaming-desktop-intel-i3-9100f-8gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1650-4gb-240gb-ssd-1tb-hdd/6428887.p?skuId=6428887
$599 but it will last a lot longer
you can do anything on it and run any game available.
you get STEAM. easily worth it for that alone.
become a part of the pc master race(if you build)

yes. they can go for a few grand if you buy them prebuilt and the top of the line, which you don't need for 99% of video games.

The PC you linked is more expensive and less powerful than the Ps5 and only has a quarter of the SSD size. It's also 250 bucks more.

I mean common dude.... really? I thought you were a smart PC guy.

I'm not arguing that consoles are superior but like I said I'm not a big gamer to begin with and a gaming PC is not going to help me with my need for a 4K blu-ray player for my OLED that I just bought

For my personal situation the PS5 or the Xbox Series X is my best option(s)

A high end graphics card costs hundreds of dollars, the latest cards can be upwards of $1500.

High end PC gaming is expensive and anyone who think it's "cheaper than console" is fooling themselves.

Is it superior? Sure, but you pay for the quality. There's no doubt about that.

xbox has seemless transitioning from games to streaming to web browsing to you name it. playstation does not. you have a lot of dumb menus to navigate and it has considerable amounts of loading time when switching between entertainment.

xbox is king

Neither. Best way to go is to get a gaming PC and a Switch. Or better yet get a Switch Pro when they come out next year.

Consoles are a waste of money, they break after a couple of years, and they can't be upgraded. There is almost no advantage to getting a console except for the Switch.

For 4K video you can just download can't you? Physical discs are a thing of the past. Digital is where it's at! For games I buy the physical game on Switch for resale value. For 4K I download.

My favorite 4K videos are of people walking around with a 4K camera strapped to them. It sounds dumb and boring, but is actually pretty interesting. It's like visiting another country without leaving your house. I like the ones where they walk in the rain for falling asleep.

FUCK SONY and especially XBOX!!!!

Yes, I am right. Of course not 100% of them break, but most do. Especially the newer ones. I think I went through 3 PS3's and didn't even play them that much. And NES barely even worked when it first came out. You had to blow the games, push it in and out, and keep resetting to maybe get it working. There is a reason why you don't see a bunch of consoles in everyone's houses.

PC is the superior gaming machine. Only people without PC's would say otherwise.

I didn't say you said that.

The truth is that consoles do break a lot. I'm glad you have had good luck, but if you look up "Fix Playstation" or "Fix Xbox" on youtube then you get 100's of videos. Not everyone has the same luck as you. I had a PS4 and that broke also. That is when I went to PC and never looked back, except for Nintendo because I needed Zelda and Mario!


I was never an Xbox fan and would never buy one. Would only buy PS's in the past, but if they really aren't getting Bethesda games then I would never buy a PS. GTA6 and Cyberpunk will be great. No Bethesda = No Playstaion.

Mine also broke except I had an Xbox that gave me the "red ring of death". After that point I switched to a $300 laptop and with just that it was enough to convince me to never switch back to consoles.

Buy both, easy solution.  Deal some shrooms or something to cover the cost.  Also, I dont want to burst your bubble, OLED do have amazing pictures, incredible fast refresh rates, perfect blacks.  It's worth paying the 250 to have it professionally calibrated for the room its in. Unfortunately, they suck for consoles... burn in, its an issue with all the OLED panels currently being made, stick to movies, and buy at least a dame nice sound bar to go with it.  Sound is half, sometimes 2/3rds of a movie, a good sound bar is a better investment than a new tv IMO.

you can do anything on it and run any game available.
you get STEAM. easily worth it for that alone.
become a part of the pc master race(if you build)



Yo I'm a PC builder/game as well - but I hate to say this isn't exactly selling it so well :lol: - that's not a very powerful computer or particularly economic build in the longterm... my 4-5 year old rig has 5x the storage, 24gb more ram, a way better graphics card, and a cpu that puts that i3 to shame - liquid cooled - and cost like 1200$~

If I spent about 1400~ right now I could make a computer 10-15x more powerful than my current one and 20-30x more powerful than that wimpy best buy shit

A powerful ryzen cpu, and a soon to be released nvidia 3080 will run about 1200~ combined but will already blow the new consoles out of the water and be equvilant to about 20 best buy computers lol.

I've been eyeing both, not sure of availability here in Australia recently all preorders got filled by bots. Guess that means a forced wait and plenty of time to decide between the two.

Slightly leaning towards the Xbox because the exclusives are more FPS style, which I prefer as a way to just play an hour or two to relax.

Am I right in thinking PS5 gets more of the racing / sports / rpg type exclusives? At least thats what I saw looking at some lists.

Oh no worries, I didn't buy the TV for gaming. It's specifically for viewing.

I have another 4K (not an OLED and a lower end model 4K) in another room that I can game with. I would use the PS5 (or Xbox) for 4K blu-ray viewing, however. I do have a couple of sound bars but they're old and since I shelled out big for the TV, maybe I should add a premium sound bar to compliment it.

Ugh I've spent a lot in the past few days. I bought a new laptop (nothing special but it was still $600), the OLED, and now I'm wanting a PS5 or the Xbox Series X. And possibly a new sound bar. God I would love a Bose or something.

:judyfacepalm:

Oh and I just bought a new coffee table too

A 3080 is 700 bucks
Will blow both consoles out of the water.
I have a 1660 ti which at least gets me sixty frames on any game i throw at it, jus waiting for a mobo.

I could spend another two years on last gen, theres really no reason for me to start any new games right now.

I'm gonna pass on both and get a ps4 when the price drops or buy used soon. I'm not very interested in 4k gaming just yet. I might pick up a 4k tele next year. My current TV still has some life left in it but its definitely reaching its end. That would be more for movies vs gaming anyways.

I don't really mind spending whatever I need to on this stuff cause I look at them like investments into my mental health and leisure time. I haven't really been out much this year and the way things are going that's not going to change. I rarely upgrade anything unless I need to. I dealt with a crappy mouse for forever until it finally died on me and I had no choice but to buy a new one. I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to upgrading anything as long as its working. I'm also super frugal so there's always wiggle room if I want to splurge or not. But with all the advancements happening atm its kind of hard not to want to. Like VR looks so fun but I can't justify a purchase like that yet :uhoh:

I've always been a Nintendo guy. MS and Sony always seem to be doing pretty much the same thing, consoles similar to each other that target a similar market. And none of the exclusives either has are anything I'm too familiar with for the most part. I'll check them out when they're old and the games are cheap. The newest systems I own of either are a 360 and a PS2, wouldn't have bought them as priced at launch. The PS2 I have was one someone was throwing out. They also had a PSX and a Sega Genesis. I don't have any cords or games for the Genesis though.

Yeah same here. Before I upgraded my last two TVs (one in each room) I had a couple of plasma TVs (which have been discontinued) and both were dying. And I still rode them out for like 2 years. One had a vertical pink line that was the length of the entire screen and the other had suffered burn-in.

My sound bars are also nearing ten years old but they still seem to be doing okay so for now I'm still sticking with them.

And I also really wanted to buy the PlayStation VR but when I started looking a couple years ago that shit was like $700 bucks

Actually you can do it for under 700 nowadays. You just have to cheap out on certain parts, go with stock cooler/fans. Easy and affordable upgrades to make whenever. Budget processors have become pretty powerful, as well as gpus. You'd be able to play anything on medium settings at the very least (generally is what consoles play at) and high in some @ 1080p/60fps.

I put this together pretty fast as an example. This could be even cheaper but I went with reputable brands.

I want the HTC Vive Pro Eye system...its 1200 I think :lol: It should come down in price eventually. I'll probs skip on VR too. The longer I wait the better it'll be. Skyrim VR looks so fun though!

I too need a new speaker setup but I'm getting new headphones first which I desperately need for my music creation cause the ones I've had forever actually just broke down recently..I lose my hearing in an ear for weeks, it finally comes back and headphones go kaput, like why..

I also had a plasma do that too! Many lines and burn in but it was a champ :sadyes:

And yeah Cosmic, those plasmas looked great at first -- the picture quality was very deep and vivid, almost like a poor man's OLED at the time but little did we know that they were rampant with burn-in. In fact I think that was one of the primary reasons they discontinued them.

I was going to pre-order the PS5.  But after remembering how underwhelming the PS4 release was I'm going to wait.  I still have a bunch of games I need to play on PS4 & Nintendo Switch.  Just my two cents.

Nah. My first PC I bought was a $700 prebuilt Alienware, I bought it with my saved up paper route money at the time.
You can buy cheap computer that have one or two good parts in them and then just upgrade later on! You can still play any game that consoles have plus download steam and have literal thousands of free games that you can download and have forever! Most are not worth playing because they are free but there are some really good ones like cs:go, dota, league of legends, smite, any indie game.

Another pro to PC gaming is that customization. You can customize your graphics settings in all PC games to match your computer specs.
Trust me guys, it's worth it to get a computer instead of a console. I guarantee that you will thank me later. Consoles are the past and cost to much money, like who tf still uses physical CD discs now adays?! Uninformed console players that's who. They literally make you PAY MORE MONEY just to use your own internet connection that you are already paying for so you can play multiplayer.... scummy. Spend more for prebuilt or build your own *very easily* for much much cheaper. Youtube tutorials, read websites, ask the community. I built my pc and build and resell computers for a living, if you need any help with it I'd be glad to help with what I can.

If you decide to join the PC Master Race then please remember to pray to your holy savior Gaben.

If I and a PC player were both dying and you could only choose one to live admit it you would save the PC player without even thinking twice

You think we are inferior beings

Also if you could have slaves you would have a console player as a slave

That's quite the collection of words to put in my mouth. I don't think console players are "inferior" to pc players. We use the term "console peasant" and "pc master race" because that is what it's called, it's slang, it's a joke. You'd understand if you were a pc guy.

I agree -- I wish they weren't coming out until like late 2021 or even 2022.

I wouldn't even be getting one right now though, but I just happened to be looking for a 4K blu-ray player and then realized that both of these offer that luxury in addition to of course the games themselves.

Ok so for the record I have NEVER had any Playstation of any kind fail on me in my 20 year PS career. Even ones Ive kept for many years. Most of my friends had red ring of death at some point, even multiple times. Jus sayin.

Imo if you go pc, you have to shell out $1200-$1500 for a real one. I mean why get a pc if you cheap out on parts as it runs the same as a 3rd or 4th gen consule. Dont get me wrong pc is far superior and worth the money, but for most casual gamers in 2020, a $500 more popular console is the better choice. If I were a big time gamer I would  almost definantly go pc, with a ps4 controller..

And dont say pc's never break. Based on exp, pc's break too. A $300+ graphics cards seem to have a lifespan of only 2-3 years. Fans burn out. Systems crash etc. Thats not even what the thread is about!

Yep. If I was a serious gamer I'd definitely consider a PC instead.

But I'm not. Nowadays I'm a casual gamer at best, so a PC is not really an option for me.

LOL, what kind of self-respecting gamer would spend $500 on a PC?

I'd spend that on a graphics card alone, were I still into building them.

PC is definitely an option. You can't even play Rimworld on PS5. These people saying you need $1200+ for a PC are completely wrong. If you shop bargains you can build a great PC for $400. For $600 you can build something as good as the PS5 or better. I built mine for $600 couple years ago and it is still amazing, plus I could upgrade parts if I wanted the newest bestest specs.

Exactly. A 1-time purchase (most likely)or a console that gets upgrades often that require xbox live or psn. Along with that ur buyin new games every new console and if ur a controller abuser like me u gotta buy new controllers often haha

That's entry level, sans monitor or input devices. Hardly 'great'.

I don't know about the graphics card lifespan estimate - I've been running my 1070 through for about 4~ years...still going very strong, just keep it clean- but otherwise, I agree!

Yeah, that's not including monitor because I figured you would hook it to a TV. When I say bargains I mean like waiting for Black Friday deals and/or buying some used parts.

I paid $500 to $600 a couple years ago and I haven't found a game that I can't handle and they all look beautiful. That is without bargain shopping too. You can build a nice rig for that price. Not top of the line, but still very nice and comparable to Xboxes.

    #26952281 - 09/24/20 09:29 AM (3 months, 25 days ago)

Until a few months ago I was planing to get the series X but after buying a $2500 (au) pc in march of this year thanks to government payments I've kinda gone off my current Xbox One X console.  Not because its now crap and definitely not because of PC gaming being better, it's just because I like first person shooter and a keyboard and mouse offers better control then a console controller ever could.  I also like command and conquer games too and a mouse and keyboard is best for those types of games too.

Still. I've got 40 plus xbox one games and I've only played about 3 of them in depth (Witcher 3 is one of them).  So instead of getting the new xbox, im just gonna keep playing with my current console along side of pc gaming.  Then when the next consoles come out (could be up to 10 years away) I'll get one of them.  That's the plan.  Basically in my opinion, the best gaming experience is having both, the console connected to the 60 plus inch 4k tv in the living room and the pc with a good 40 inch 4k gaming monitor in the bedroom or wherever you have it set up.  But if i had to pick one?, i wouldn't.  I want the left AND right tit :thumbup:

Niffla, concerning getting a new console to play movies on, I suggest getting one of those proper remotes that have come out for recent consoles that looks and feels like a normal dvd/blu ray player remote (I assume they'll be bringing them out for these new consoles).  I've found that using a standard controller is not that good for controlling the player side of things. It can be done but not as good as a remote imo.

I thought a real pc worth having for gaming was at least 1200$. But both consules are almost as good as a pc. 120fps right?



Actually you can do it for under 700 nowadays. You just have to cheap out on certain parts, go with stock cooler/fans. Easy and affordable upgrades to make whenever. Budget processors have become pretty powerful, as well as gpus. You'd be able to play anything on medium settings at the very least (generally is what consoles play at) and high in some @ 1080p/60fps.

I put this together pretty fast as an example. This could be even cheaper but I went with reputable brands.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Xwpmdm




That list you have there has a poor gpu. With only 4 gigs of vram It would struggle to play new AAA titles at decent settings, and if you have to turn down the settings comparable to a console (closer to a PS3/4) then what's the point of that pc? These new console would be better visually then that build hands down.  And because most people already have a tv in the living room they don't need to buy a dedicated screen like a pc needs, unless you use a monitor you already had from you last pc. but it still cost you money.  Point I'm making is that most people have tv's regardless of a console, so when a console is bought, 8 times out of 10 there's no additional cost whatsoever.



Now may i please get something off my chest please (not aimed at you Cosmic_Flame)

I personally think that anyone who considers them self to be part of the pc master race to actually be a master joke.

Pc's are the best??? really.  Look at the joke that is the new nvida card release.  No one can get one because your main gpu provider doesn't know how to launch a product very well.  Then there's the Tech Youtubers..... While hardly anyone can buy a new card the gpu makers are sending them like up to 3 or 4 new gpus per popular youtubers just so that people can see what they can't buy anytime soon.  Worst still 90% of tech youtubers, are rubbing it in people's faces that they got another new 3080 (pc centric... I'm looking at you)

THEN for one of the world's first 3090 test, nvida gets/sponsors that mega tech YT guy Linus to play on a massive super expensive 8k screen that most people can't ever afford which btw, im sure everyone was wanting to see the 3090 tested that way!!!  Most people can't afford the cost of the 3090 itself.  And if they can afford one?, there's no stock anyway!!!!  You call this kind of BS as being part of the best???? lol :rofl2:

I know that the argument is more about which has better graphics, but those of you who praise the mighty PC need to remember, that these things (3000 series issues) are part of your pc discipleship-ness.  And it also includes that many people get ripped off when they go to a computer shop for their first shiny pc.  Not everyone has the confidence to build their own and not everyone knows someone that can help too.  My point is PC gaming has it's own issues and their not all small ones.


So, if this is what the best is, all you master race guys and girls are just plan stupid and so full of yourselves that you've lost touch with reality  :mindblown:


You know people are starving right now don't you!!?!!  Get over yourself  :billythumbdown:

If you've read my entire post then thank you and sorry (just blowing off some steam). I want to play pc games at 4k max settings and to do that i need to spend another thousand or two thousand dollars ON TOP OF WHAT I'VE ALREADY SPENT just to get what I want :thumbdown:.

So this means the cost to me for better then new console graphics are/is;

PC - $2500 australian dollars

I7 9700 cpu
asrock z390 motherboard
32 gigs of ram @ 2666MHz (cpu limited)
500 gig ssd & 1.8 tb hard drive
1660 super 6g gpu

plus

$800 au for a 43 inch 4k samsung tv (similar gaming monitors cost $2000 - $3000)

and then i need a new gpu

2080 ti - $2500, 1st gen raytracing not the best and from memory not every game can play at 4k max settings at 60fps so this card won't do

3080 will cost around $1500 au bucks but currently only comes with 10gigs of vram so will start to struggle in next few years, not good enough sorry..... next!!!!

and that leaves the 3090, around $2500 or more au bucks

so

$2500 plus $800 plus $1500 or $2500 depending on gpu so lets go $2000 for the gpu

that comes to $5300 australian bucks ($3721 us) just so I can play games at 4k max settings at a steady 60 frames per second.

Cheap my arse!!!!!!!!

I could buy a console and hire 3 hookers (im ugly) for half a day to come over and play some games at my house and then i could play with their x-boxes for a while too.

Sounds better to me :wooawesome:






Sorry.... what was the question?

I just read an article saying how all the preorders are maxed out and everyone else might not be able to get their hands on one until at the earliest 2021

I don't get it...how can these dweebs at mega corporations like Sony and Microsoft not capable of being able to produce enough of these units to meet demand

:dork:

Maybe these master race PC supremacists are onto something...

My brother in law gave me his old gaming rig, I think the GPU is a 970. Probably not great for the latest games but it works alright for Deep Dream type stuff with Tensor Flow.

Ps5. Got me an oled as well so it should be pretty dope.

But... I'm not too happy with the game selection. Hopefully they up the library...

Walmart better come through with my pre order.

Also, I dont want to burst your bubble, OLED do have amazing pictures, incredible fast refresh rates, perfect blacks.  It's worth paying the 250 to have it professionally calibrated for the room its in. Unfortunately, they suck for consoles... burn in, its an issue with all the OLED panels currently being made, stick to movies




Oh no worries, I didn't buy the TV for gaming. It's specifically for viewing.

I have another 4K (not an OLED and a lower end model 4K) in another room that I can game with. I would use the PS5 (or Xbox) for 4K blu-ray viewing, however. I do have a couple of sound bars but they're old and since I shelled out big for the TV, maybe I should add a premium sound bar to compliment it.

Ugh I've spent a lot in the past few days. I bought a new laptop (nothing special but it was still $600), the OLED, and now I'm wanting a PS5 or the Xbox Series X. And possibly a new sound bar. God I would love a Bose or something.

:judyfacepalm:

Oh and I just bought a new coffee table too

:baseballfuck:




Get a dolby atmos soundbar, I have the sonos ARC and it is fucking amazing, surround sound from a sound bar, totally woth the premium price tag if you can affor, and it ties into all the other sonos stuff, so I have rear sonos1 speakers as well that the atmos matched perfectly into the mix.

I mean if you MUST, Ps5. But at the prices they are trying to charge for either system you should just move to PC. You can play any game and be able to play better (when you get used to mouse and keyboard.) But I mean I have also preordered the ps5 haha but I do most of my gaming on PC. Im just getting the ps5 for quality time for me my little bro and cousins.

I have a high end comp, game pass gets me all my microsoft goodness.  PS5 has exclusives that are worth it to me. Just a demon's Souls remake in my mind justifies dropping 500.  Everything else is just icing on the cake.

I do not want to spend 1500+ on a pc. Simple. The new consoles that are coming out look amazing and can be purchased for a low low price of 500 shmackaroos.

I can say this. 70.00 for a game is trash. 50.00 to 60.00 and now 70.00.

Here's my thoughts. I think Sony had to sell the PS5 at such a low cost in order for the masses to afford them. It has also come out that sony won't be making much per console so... They had to find a way to make up for the lost coin. How? Well, they upped the charge when it comes to making games.

I think.

Let's say I sell an oz of the marijuanas for 100.00, but I wanted to take my grow to the next level and purchased better quality equipment. In order to make up the cost of the equipment I now have to sell ozs of the marijuanas for 150.00.

The only Microsoft game that is on my PS4 is Minecraft, and several times I've had to completely uninstall and reinstall it after it gets an update, it's like Windoze. There's no reason for me to buy a whole console full of that shit. Hell no.

Either way I'll be waiting at least a year or so, for all the initial production series bugs to be discovered and addressed.

Yeah I'm with you. If I was a serious gamer, then I'd probably go the PC route. I'm not. These days I'm barely a casual gamer. And I want the added ability of a 4K blu-ray player that both consoles bring to the table.

Hello split how art thou

No I haven't. Since it appears the preorders are selling out immediately whenever they release a new batch (btw I've seen PS5 and Series X consoles selling for over a thousand dollars on ebay lol), I'm just gonna sit back until after the official releases and wait until sales stabilize to a point where they'll be available to the rest of the buying market.

I've always gotten Playstations (I bought each one over the years...I did have one of the Xbox consoles briefly once though) so part of me wants to get the Series X just to change things up. But then the other part of me wants to get the PS5 just out of familiarity...ugh. Idk lol. May just flip a coin when it's all said and done :lol:

I swear I picture all the hardcore gamer nerds just sitting at home unemployed constantly hitting their refresh buttons on their online shopping carts while they pee in empty bottles of mountain dew and defecate in their adult diapers as they fiendishly try to secure their new console. Because apparently as soon as Best Buy or Target or who the hell ever puts a new batch of preorders out they are gone nationwide within seconds

Thats what happens every new generation and at this point its basically a manufactured demand. I mean let's remember this current console release is what should have been released originally but theyre making u buy multiple Xbox after they learned you idiots would eat it up when they pulled the Xbox 360 elite horseshit. I mean why do people let them pull this shit.

sup sup niffty, have you made a decision between the xbox vs. ps5?




Hello split how art thou




im doing well, thanks. on my first break at work having a bite to eat.

Quote:

No I haven't. Since it appears the preorders are selling out immediately whenever they release a new batch (btw I've seen PS5 and Series X consoles selling for over a thousand dollars on ebay lol), I'm just gonna sit back until after the official releases and wait until sales stabilize to a point where they'll be available to the rest of the buying market.




this is smart and probably what ill do.

Quote:

I've always gotten Playstations (I bought each one over the years...I did have one of the Xbox consoles briefly once though) so part of me wants to get the Series X just to change things up. But then the other part of me wants to get the PS5 just out of familiarity...ugh. Idk lol. May just flip a coin when it's all said and done :lol:




personally I like xbox 1 more than ps4, but as a kid growing up all i ever owned and played was playstation.

Quote:

I swear I picture all the hardcore gamer nerds just sitting at home unemployed constantly hitting their refresh buttons on their online shopping carts while they pee in empty bottles of mountain dew and defecate in their adult diapers as they fiendishly try to secure their new console. Because apparently as soon as Best Buy or Target or who the hell ever puts a new batch of preorders out they are gone nationwide within seconds

I've always been a xbox guy, but the ps5 controller sounds so cool i might be getting it instead. Haptic feedback sounds fire AF.

I pre ordered from Walmart on Sept 17th. I also received a 10% discount which works out to 50.00 because I was promised a console on the release date. The lady also said I should demand more once I get it. Haha. I probably won't though. 485.00 sits right with me. That extra 50.00 can go towards a game.

My friend has the new xbox.

He is afraid to play any new games on it.  He booted up Forza and the xbox crashed.

Now he is afraid to buy Black Ops and crash his xbox.  I keep telling him to just do it since its in the return period still.  He doesn't seem to get it.  He would rather not risk fucking it up than deal with a return period and wait for them to be back in stock.

The whole launch has marked what has came to a head in 2020 online retail arbitrage and the employed advantage of purchasing bots. The big box stores have been well aware of buybots prevalence in 2020 alikened to a surging sports card market, the companys have an obligation to fight unfair consumer practices albeit spending money on antibot software, it's owed to the customers. The ps5 is the better of the two machines IMO and many other tech savy people. But at this point I refuse to feed into the level of hype the event is drawing and will literary wait for the "Dopestation 5" model to hit the street corner before I pay out the current hype machine.

The entire launch of new GPU's and CPU's for PC has been ruined by bots.

The last blast of GPU's from nvidia was absolutely comical. GPU's going for twice retail because they were all bought up instantaneously.

The solution is just for people to have a little patience. After all a newest release of any electronics device is bound to be buggy and clunky for a while, not to mention it's hard to claim a warranty on a 2nd hand item.

Two full months since the release and these things are still unavailable to 98% of the general public :mad2:

Every retailer remains sold out. There are small "restocks" happening but the restocks disappear almost the second they go on the sales floor (or are made available online).

There is a pretty credible rumor though that Sony is sooner rather than later going to be bringing a "substantial" restock everywhere, and that they would do this in regular waves until they're finally available to virtually anyone who wants one. Not sure about the Series X, but my guess is they would have something similar in the works.

Can't buy either.  What good is money when you can't buy things with it?  Maybe in Spring?:shrug:

:beer: will help speed along the waiting process.  I might buy both actually if that extra 1,400 comes into my account as the Dems have control over it.

Patience.  God, Corona Extra is a really good beer, didn't think it would be.  Like to drop a k-pin it and see chemistry at work.  Plus got some really good news today!  Life is good, despite covid year.  When anyone gets negative, just say, covid year.  On with life.

I want a ps5 incredibly bad but haven't mentioned it to anyone irl because its just not viable for me. I take care of my dad full time and can't work because of injuries and bad immune system/ lung problems. But God I'd love one. The haptic feedback sand controller sound really awesome. I love PlayStation and have since PlayStation 3 and the reason being is because I had at the time 3 Xbox 360 s that got red rings of death and PlayStation was always solid. Then I fell in love with games like God of War, Spider-Man, Uncharted and so many more plus new projects. Since PlayStation 4 I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that both systems are pretty much identical but this time around I would prefer Playstation again.  I'd love it but at this point I really just hope they keep making games for PlayStation 4

One thing to keep in mind ST, after reading numerous articles/reviews on these latest next gen consoles, is that quite a few people I saw were saying how they weren't exactly blown away like they thought they would be. As far as the graphics anyway. Yes they said there are definitely subtle differences that reveal both console's step up in that department, but it's nothing that would leave your jaw on the floor. However other areas are where there are very noticeable differences, such as the loading times now (they're a fraction of what they once were).

They're also saying that in order to maximize both console's powers, one would need a 120 frames per second capable television, and those aren't cheap. Pretty much all of the "budget" 4K televisions (most under a thousand bucks I'd say) are only 60 frames per second. The gaming experts say that one would be missing out on a lot and not fully realizing their console's capability with a lesser TV set.

Again these are just things I read so I can't confirm or deny any of this.

Demon's was frustrating on ps3 when I played it.  Go to the fourth Archstone and grind there for a while.  If you are putting anything into intelligence then build a Crescent Uchi.  Changed the difficulty level for me haha

You want frustration?  Try this.  I have broke a controller from a console before.  But some people just smash it, but I get it.  Dark Souls, I have no clue about Demon Souls but guess it is a rip off of it.

Nintendo Switch Pro is coming soon! You guys would probably have more fun with that than a PS5. The switch is the top selling every year and the PRO will be even more funner!

Also Pokemon Snap, Mario 3D, Zelda 2, Mario Kart 9, and Metroid!!!!


I need more time. I just got some PC games and haven't even had time to turn them on. No time to even jerk off.

And possibly the most frustrating.


Also, Barnaby, Dark Souls 3 was a cakewalk compared to the previous Souls games imo.  Still very fun though.  That video you posted looks like a n00b playing:  they are greedy and not taking advantage of the enemies' attacks in the deaths I was looking at.  Jeebus, they had a shield equipped for the few I watched :picard:

Precisely, pretty sure you find Uchi somewhere in there.  I typically do quality builds with supplementation of magic.  You can definitely grind there before you stack intelligence though, the enemies aren't nearly as difficult as their amount of souls would suggest.

The only truly hard part in DS3 is the bonfire locations and the bosses. Even then some of them are stupid easy. Like deacons or that dumbass tree. Fuck dancer tho

I don't think I'm playing DS correctly.. Im running a royalty character and build on strength endurance dexterity and others of the like. I'm also sticking with the same weapons and just upgrade those. It's more of a hack and slash while blocking kinda game for me.

I feel like I'm missing out on something now.. I'm currently on 3-1 and have beat 1-1 and 2-1. Can't beat that big ball of zombie guys..

I've only played 3 but Dex and str are two different weapon class requirements for damage. Dark Souls is a game where you want to min-max. Keep everything as low as possible that isn't necessary so you can dump everything into meeting requirements and then maximizing damage or whatever else is going to get you through each challenge.

I always pump endurance first for more stamina, then I split points between str and dex.  I don't touch vitality much, and then I pump intelligence a little after i start dealing decent physical damage.  Pumping endurance/stamina/equip load first allows me to progress faster, it may work for you as well.

Putting points into both dex and str is the quality build to which I referred earlier.

I never got into the online play.. I did beat the game though.. it was so much fun. I've sorta kinda been wanting to try it out on my ps5.

Also. Fuck the Tower Knight! Fuck him to hell! He's easy, they say. Go for the ankles.. fuck you. Eat my ass.

One thing to keep in mind ST, after reading numerous articles/reviews on these latest next gen consoles, is that quite a few people I saw were saying how they weren't exactly blown away like they thought they would be. As far as the graphics anyway. Yes they said there are definitely subtle differences that reveal both console's step up in that department, but it's nothing that would leave your jaw on the floor. However other areas are where there are very noticeable differences, such as the loading times now (they're a fraction of what they once were).

They're also saying that in order to maximize both console's powers, one would need a 120 frames per second capable television, and those aren't cheap. Pretty much all of the "budget" 4K televisions (most under a thousand bucks I'd say) are only 60 frames per second. The gaming experts say that one would be missing out on a lot and not fully realizing their console's capability with a lesser TV set.

Again these are just things I read so I can't confirm or deny any of this.



I think Sony & Microsoft shouldn't have bothered with 120 fps.  I game at 60 fps on my PC and it's more then enough.  Not saying that 120 wouldn't look smooth, but from what I understand about these new consoles is that in order to get 120 fps the graphics quality/resolution has to go down :thumbdown:, stuff that, I'd rather 60 rock solid frames per second with the best quality graphics at 4k native resolution.

Maybe it was a done to inspire people to buy new expensive TV's?


Niffla

Have you considered forgetting the new consoles & getting yourself a Xbox One X?  The reason why I say that is because it comes with a 4k bluray player & as someone who owns one, the games & graphics are still damn fine if you ask me.

Also in the next few years as many people move to the newer systems, the second hand game market for the Xbox One X will only increase in size and also start going down in price :wooawesome:.

I felt the same as Nif at first. I was disappointed. The games were eeak and the graphics weren't amazing. But hey, fast loading times, right..

I even thought about selling it for 2x-3x the amount I spent. Got tons of offers too.

Of course I decided against it and stuck with it, but I also started thinking back. The ps4 launch sucked too. The games and the graphics "leap" but, look at how far along the ps4 has come.

My honest opinion... I think buying the ps5 first was dumb.. I think all the game developers waited because of covid and they weren't sure how sales were going to be. I can tell you this... These developers are scrambling around with their heads off now and there will be some awesome games coming out.

I also think it will take some time for these developers to truly harness and utilize the ps5s full power. Give it a year..

My plan.. rock the ps5 until a "pro" comes out, sell the ps5, and brag about said "pro"

Give it all time.. this is only the tip of the iceberg.
