That's a plus... I guess.
Quick, to the shops!
lol, I lay my computer Flat to prevent this, does anyone else do this?
haha yeah, once... never again!
recently saw more tests and numbers of this card and damn!! very very bad option for upgrading imo.
Never have I seen an entire generation of GPUs, from both manufacturers, get mauled like this. You have to hope that after the media beating, the poor consumer sentiment, and rock-bottom demand, next gen cards are released at actually viable price points. And hopefully they can get the launch dates pulled up a bit; really don't want to wait 2 years for the next launch. I'm on a 3060Ti, and I was willing to upgrade this gen, but nothing is exactly the product I want at the price I'm willing to pay. Funny how both companies seemed to think we were "normalized" to high GPU prices after what many paid during the crypto boom. Being willing to pay a lot - in that context - is MUCH different than what we're looking at now.
3000 series (at normal retail pricing) was mostly decent, you could argue the 3080 was slightly gimped because of the 10gb but overall it was much better than this 4000 series. 4090 is a good jump but the pricing is too high for most, I could buy one but these days I barely touch a game. I'm on a 3060Ti myself at the moment and It's fine if you're reasonable with the settings depending on the game. I'd wait and see if they do some kind of Super refresh, or just hold on to your 3060 Ti until the 5000 series.
They suggested a potentially different path to Sony, and poorer game preservation as a result.
Honestly, I don't mind a digital-only device - I do play mostly on PC after all. I just think that one paired with Microsoft's way of handling expandable storage is a bad idea. Like, just imagine how expensive that would get with 1TB costing around 150 USD and the current sizes for AAA titles.
According to a recent hands-on by CNET, the PlayStation Portal battery life is expected to last between seven to nine hours.
7 to 9 hours is solid! :)
That's really good actually, better than my phone and my 10' tablet just watching YouTube or Twitch.
oh wow, i expected it to be way less. nice, cant wait :)
Given this is just a streaming device, that's pretty low compared to my cell. But I guess most gaming sessions are shorter than that.
Try streaming games to your mobile phone for that long and see how it goes I think you'll find with a decent screen brightness most phones would only get 3 to 6 hours max. My fold 3 would only go about 3 hours tbh
Most.phones wouldn't even do 3 hours imo, I used 12% in about 20mins using remote play while letting my nephew and niece play "Peppa pig and paw patrol. I imagine it's even less playing a more gfx intensive game.
A mobile last about 2 hours when playing a console game, plus it feels like it's gonna melt in you're hand.
Pretty similar to the Abxylute, but far lower than the Logitech G-Cloud battery life. But given Sony's recent track record, it's really good and depending on how the battery is accommodated inside of it we might have another Wii U Gamepad situation where a newer, larger battery can be used.
Kinda feels like the best case scenario tbh. Everyone should be pretty happy with that.
7-9 is great...but i bet that means its really 3-4 with the brightness up and headphones connected...
When I watch shows on my phone in bed I turn the brightness down all the way and that’s where I’ll probably play this the most. On the couch it will probably be on medium settings. The only time I use any device on max brightness is outside but I don’t use devices outside very often besides making phone calls so I don’t think max brightness should be an issue.
This article is based on the reveal coverage on 8/23/23 and should not be taken as new information. CNET stated back then that no definitive battery life was given but Sony is targeting something similar to the DualSense controller's, which is typically around seven to nine hours.
It's streaming so it isn't using high-powered hardware. 7-9 hours is probably fine for most people, though I do wonder how the battery holds up with the brightness and stuff cranked up.
Looking really good, just wish it had an OLED though
Thinking about getting one for work, lots of downtime for me. Nice it lasts about 8 hours, or a day of work too 😂
Why do I have a feeling this shit is gonna sell really really well.. for all the bad mouthing and bad press it got I can see everyone having it just lying around somewhere
Just like when people said Dualsense Edge was too expensive, yet it’s selling well. You can never 100% always listen to what the Internet says. Sometimes what people say on the Internet is different from what people in the real word think.
Sony knows this stuff is niche and set targets that align like psvr Sony knew they would only sell maybe 4m units and they were not disappointed
