Well, that PS5 event just made me jizz.
£449 for the good one with a disc drive is pretty good. I remember paying £500 for the PS3 at launch.

I watched it, and the one thing that struck me was that the games all looked very similar. They were either dark and gritty, or bright and colourful. Spider-Man 1.5 looked chaotic, as did Deathloop. Nothing much to excite there at all, but that equally went for the recent Xbox event (although there seemed to be a fraction more variation in graphics).

I’m struggling to reconcile my excitement for a new console and desperately wanting to place my order on Tuesday, with my head telling me there’s zero point as there’s nothing worth playing. I dunno now, I really don’t.

I'm getting it for Horizon Forbidden West, Farcry 6 and Hitman 3.
Also the possibility of PSVR 2 and Blood and Truth and Astrobot Rescue sequels for it.
Jizz is still coming out.

I’ve ordered an RTX3080 today, and I’ve decided that I’ll pass on the XSX until it gets some solid games. Most of the stuff I want I can get on the PC now, including MS first party titles.

Plus I want 4K/60, not 4K/30.

MS buying Zenimax, fuck me never saw that coming. Perfect timing the day before XBX/S pré orders open, just imagine a world where TES, Fallout, Doom etc are Xbox exclusives...

The monthly pricing for xbox console + game pass + ea pass is amazing. If it plays 4k 60 or higher then it's a hell of a lot better value than a 3080

I just wish I could get either XBox X or PS5. No stock anywhere. I swear they do it on purpose. Cunts.

It really is, I’m totally keeping my XBGPU sub going permanently now. Best bargain in gaming, and if I did get an XSX it would be under the monthly pricing thing as well. Pisses all over everything else.

Had a Series X delivered yesterday but, it's for my kid's Christmas so haven't had a go at it.

Still want a 3080 or a 6800X for myself though but I wouldn't say no a Xbox Series X.

I’d have had that bad boy out of the box for ‘testing purposes’ already :lol:

I’ve still got at least a couple of weeks until my 3080 gets delivered I reckon. Scan send me weekly updates, gone from 168 to 86 in the backlog queue.

I still can't find a PS5 anywhere. I got sad and bought a new rifle instead, then we got locked down and I can't even play with that.

Shoot people breaking lockdown rules. That'll help with your practice. 8)

There's plenty of them near me, my neighbours are having a party as we speak.
Sadly I don't think I'd do well in prison, even with Ekona looking out for me.

I just had to Google mackerel because I thought it was some filthy euphamism. I've learned something.
