Contrary to common opinion, there aren’t a million PlayStation 5 consoles sitting in scalpers’ warehouses: the system is outperforming the PS4 when launch aligned despite unprecedented demand leading to stock shortages.
Of course they are. The PS5 launch was much better then the PS4, of course there de Pandemic, but with games like Demons Souls, astrobot, Miles morales, Sackboy even bugnsax or Godfall. After those you got destruction allstars, oddworld and Returnal. Ratchet is coming in one month! There something for everybody. beside the fact that you dont lose the games you got from the last gen. Outperforming the PS4 is something hard to believe in the pandemic!
Yeah. Even though the PS5 library is slim, just playing PS4 games on it is lovely because of framerate and resolution improvements, and shorter load times. If you missed out on PS4 Pro, the PS5 is awesome.
Absolutely, with Ratchet releasing soon the PS5 and their event during the summer showing off GoW, Forbidden West in will release this year, the console will be even hotter, it's already a must buy I don't know how they can top themselves to be honest.
With bc this would be a disaster.
Just got to the 5th biome in Returnal. Then got my ass kicked.
Just got to the fourth biome last night, killed the flying eyeball thingy and it left a triple red ring martyrdom. I was like “greeeeeat” lol i love it
I know exactly what you are talking, mainly being ass kicked in Returnal, but i keep coming back for more.
5th Biome is tough. But it’s imperative you use both it and the third to build your character up. I l lived of the rifle that shot the Red bolts because it continues to apply damage when stuck in the enemy. I beat it last night. My second attempt at the boss and I did way better this time. I found it rather easy too. Use the grapple to move then recollect yourself and shoot em up. And Max out your Ether collection. You can hold up to 30. It will be helpful with at least two artifacts when you have them.
its the hardest biome of all of them for me. good luck!
Wait till you get to the 6th biome
I've been digging Pathless these past few days also. It's not very long, but the game is stunning and fun to play non the less.
I didnt get my PS4 until 3 years after it released, so by that time there were a bunch of titles I got with it. Killzone, infamous, driveclub, the order... etc. With the PS5, I got it fairly recently and it came with Miles and CoD and I have not gotten another game (except for oddworld via ps+). I did buy R&C, so my newest game will be next month. I have been playing more PS4 games on it than I did on my Pro. this is because of the improved performance the 5 offers. Im not into rogue games but I do like shooters and HM has made some of the funnest shooters with dead nation, resogun and stardust so i am torn with getting returnal because I like their shooter games but Im just not sold on rogue games.
To be honest I'm glad I get my Ps5, I'm enjoying Demon Souls, Returnal, Resident 8 and Persona 5 Royal at the fullest and I want to finish them before Ratchet comes and I don't want to name June.... FF7 Remake Intergrade, Guilty Gear Strive and KoF 15 in the horizon... The poor console it's crying of how much I keep using it hahaha
Just keep going buying games. Games ownership >>>> renting games
Option for both>>>>
I'm playing Wreckfest on ps+ . Then oddworldnsoulstorm when I fancy it in a few weeks. Still playing modernware multiplayer. ( Not cold war ) Just waiting on the behemoth's... Ratchet & clank Granturismo 7 And we're set.
How is it hard to believe? Digital sales surpassed physical and for over a year now ppl have been stuck at home. Add amazon to the equation where a couple of clicks will have anything delivered to your door. I agree with your entire comment minus the last sentence
They have way too much free time...
Or the nextgen games are jaw dropping and games coming out every month for the console
Oh, just like you with all your silly comments you post on here lol.
Look who's talking! * facepalm *
@lelo Wow! Comeback of the century! 🤡
@StoneyYoshi Well, I though it was a good Comeback!... but if you didn't like it, then tough luck.
Don't worry, you'll find one eventually. In the meantime don't let FOMO make you lash out, that's not nice.
Unfortunately, wasn't born with money. Have to work for a living. Don't have that much time to play games...
@lelo Find a different career path perhaps? Thats what I did so I can afford to have my hobbies and a family.
@lelo2play: Sucks you can't afford one and don't have as much time, but don't act like most people aren't working for a living here just like you. Instead of being spiteful about the amount of free time others have in comparison to you, how about you be happy that not everyone has to live your life. The goal in life shouldn't that everyone should be as miserable as you but that everyone should work so that you're as happy as they are. I didn't sit in my 20s and early 30s complaining that I had to work 80+ work weeks and everyone else should as well. I worked to get out of that and hope everyone else can do it as well. We should want better for others, and ourselves, not complain that they aren't experiencing the issues we are experiencing.
Who are they? Gamers? Are we saying PS gamers are bad because they play games more? Is this the new thing? You're a bad gamer if you play more than other gamers on other platforms? I'm confused by your comment.
Are you seriously taking a shot at gamers for gaming too much?
@lelo Yes...we literally do have way too much free time during these pandemic lockdowns... Games kinda help me forgot about all that bullsh1t.
Of course they are, half the world is still in lockdowns.
So according to your excuse, then why Xbox is not having the same success?
How is it an excuse? All gaming companies have done great during COVID lockdowns as people have been stuck indoors bored out of their minds, its not like I was saying anything negative towards Sony jeez Louise. Oh wait, sorry I forgot this in an echo chamber. "Oh Wow Sony, only you could have done this and only because of the power of Sony, look at this, the second coming of Christ in console form" Is that better?
Xbox is having great success as well. It's sold out just like PS5. Both consoles are doing well...
Xbox is sold out while selling half of Ps5. Lol
Xbox is having success with GamePass and people playing games, just not manufacturing as many consoles and selling them. We don't have enough data to compare who has the higher MAU figures.
Because its Xbox. The most people prefer Sonys consoles for many good reasons.
There is that, but then there is the fantastic library of PS4 games and exclusives , and the PS5 games and exclusives itself which are taking all of my time personally.
I work in a hospital as a PCA so not much has actually changed for me. I'm still gaming on a Switch, PS3 and base PS4.
I mean look at the PS5 Exclusive games , those are damn impressive visually and gameplay wise and ahead of everything in the gaming market!, is almost 99% your money spend will be well spend, unlike other games that are priced at 60 dlls that can turn into a annoyance to play and a complete disappointment, this one is 70 dlls but yet again I think you are getting your money's worth, next stop is Rachet and Clank! :D
That's right, give me a PS5 and a Super Switch and watch me go. I'm just gonna add Nintendo and Sony to my bank account so they don't have to ask me to take my money.
Super switch ! Lmao all for that name
If Nintendo Calls the "Switch Pro" Super Switch... It's gonna sell a lot of units hahaha
Oh, I am definitely playing my PS5 more than I did at PS4 launch, but that's because I have a huge back log of unfinished PS4 exclusives, many I have not finished, so yeah, I am playing more PS4 games on my PS5. I assume many are doing the same.
Im in the same boat but I havent had a chance to play my backlog because Demons Souls and now Returnal are taking all of my time.
Demon Souls, I am rotating with other games, but I had to move Returnal to the will play later, much later list, and moved on the RE7 and RE8, and with Ratchet coming next month, probably not coming back to Returnal until there is a save or checkpoint system feature added. I am approaching 150 hours into TLOUS2 multiple playthroughs. Love that game.
I’ve man honestly going back and Fourth on PS4 and PS5 games. Ghost of Tsushima, then Miles Morales, Nier Automata, Returnal. I think I’ll play the 2016 Ratchet before the new one comes out since it didn’t beat it and it got the 60 FPS patch. After Miles I did touch AC: Valhalla and my initial first 30 minutes to an hour i was not impressed mostly by the combat.
Absolutely, I went from my launch PS4 to a sadly not launch PS5. The transition has been so smooth, I have been playing PS5 games and games from my PS4 backlog intermixed with PS4 games with upgrades and playing the Sony exclusives again with Pro upgrades. I've been nothing but happy with the PS5 so far.
Demons Souls & Spider-Man > Infamous 3 & Killzone 4
BC is probably a factor
I'm definitely playing my PS5 almost every day.
I'm definitely finishing more games. I attribute a lot of it to the fast loading. Being able to put you instantly back into the game after dying really makes a difference in keeping you engaged in the game.
“owners have logged an outrageous 81 per cent more playtime on the next-gen console than was achieved on PS4 during the same post-launch period.” That is way more than I had anticipated
Paying more too 😂 Ba dum tshhhhh!!
It is kind of funny that no one batted an eye that the standard PS5 is $100 more expensive than the launch PS4, but everyone is losing their minds that some games are starting at $10 more.
That's cute attempt. How when Ps5 has been receiving free games constantly, while also having PSNow, discount sales on over 4000 bc games and being the cheapest next gen system.
Oi, nerd nobody here is sticking up for billion dollar companies. No one cares that you’re holding a little shield in front of Sony and whatever other video game companies you like.
Okay Mr fart. Im simply stating facts to prove your ignorance. Is not my problem that you hate a company for making hardware and software that people want.
A good rule of thumb is that anyone who says "no one cares" about something you said actually cares about that thing a great deal.
Go figure. Some gamers actually support what they like and buy games. Weird right? /s Nah what's weird is some folks are not willing to pay a few bucks and support the devs and what they themselves as gamers love. Personally been loving my PS5 and all the games. Especially the ones given with plus, what a bonus and a surprise. Can't wait for Ratchet and those new controllers to drop in June.
That’s describing what normal gamers do. Fanboys aren’t normal gamers, hence the name “fanboys.” They’re people who Stan game companies instead of people because they’re lonely.
Yeah 80€ a game is gonna stay...
I hear crocheting is an affordable hobby.
That industry isn’t inundated with former 2008 Wall Street execs, so yeah, it probably would be affordable
Ps5 in the first 6 months has managed to have better exclusives than some consoles have had all gen.
Like what? Sega Saturn? Dreamcast?
People wouldn't buy the games at $80 unless they were good, and fortunately every Sony exclusive has been high quality so far.
Guilty as charged! 🤣. Best generation yet! Dare I say perfect!?
