It seems the big difference is first party day one and forever on the x side, but Sony could do that too if they wanted with the snap of their fingers and voila GamePass is over.
Yes, Sony could do that. The thing is Microsoft offerings aren't that great. Their game studios aren't worth paying 120-180 dollars a year for yet or for quite a while.

I don't get this. I expect some #firstpost slack but I've been quietly reading this forum since the PS4 launch build-up, on a daily basis getting my info and reading all the drama that happens when leakers share things or people get annoyed.

Gradually it has moved from interesting to pulp fiction. I'm not even going to get started on the fakers that were vetted as leakers just for giggles, that just boggles my mind..But what I genuinely don't get is that seemingly nice guys, like Heisenberg post a lot of good stuff here and share interesting leaks, get attacked once some people feel there is not enough news or that they don't get their daily dose of rumors.

I'm probably a 41-year-old boomer that is annoyed by everyone being so entitled, offended, and conspiracy theorist but let's all calm the F down and enjoy talking actual console competition and embrace the tidbits of information we sometimes get from good people around here.
I’m not attacking anyone. He is yet to post any substantial “leaks” that I’ve personally seen. It’s always like I think this and it could be that, based on what I’ve heard this. But it’s all very generic and not detailed. I’ve already said he seems like a nice guy.

Indeed. And it’s not like PlayStation exclusives don’t get there at some point. It looks like pretty much all of the last gen exclusives are there permanently and current gen stuff has definitely cycled through. Adding the older current gen exclusives wouldn’t be that big a deal as they’ve been given away with Plus anyway.

I would not be at all surprised to see Now getting enhanced and combined with Plus for next gen, or at least an option to combine.

Would love to see a Smart TV streaming option for Plus again.

It isn't about substantial leaks. If you have followed Heisenberg at all you'll know how his little birdie system works. It isn't rocket science!

Only that he posted that PS5 is 10 TF in december before anyone. Give me a break.
When he have sure leaks, he's posting them as something set in stone.
And now he is guessing like all of us and waiting for some rumors from his friends. Thats all.

There was a number of rumours about the PS5 being 10tf or more around December. Let’s not pretend he was the only one or the first one to say it. Also I’m not saying he doesn’t have contacts. He has said nothing of use this past month. Yet everyone is hanging on for his next word.

I wouldn’t blame Heisenberg for that, he tells us what he’s heard, but never passes it off as the absolute truth and never claims that the information is 100% accurate. I appreciate his humbleness. However Gaf clinging onto his tweets and replies is their problem, I’m guilty of this as well. Truth is the thread has been starved of new information for a few weeks now about the consoles so we’re just hungry for any sort of news/leaks/information. Desperate I know. 😅

I will try explain it to you.
He had his previous leaks from his friend with who he play games with.
Last month he had death in his family, so probably not so much time or mood for playing.
In past his best leaks were one day before official announcement because thats probably when his friend had confirmed date.

So past month there were no events, Sony probably probably didnt confirm any date internally for next event and you expect him to provide some " leaks" ?

Grow the fuck up. Its not rocket science and he isnt some dr strange traveling through time.

I’m just going to laugh at you and move on. It’s especially funny where you tell me to grow up yet you defend a man you’ve never met because he might give you some information on next gen consoles. Good day to you!

I’m with you man. I’m also desperate. I also appreciate the post without the need to insult me. Thank you.

This could be nothing, but my hunch is that we could see a gameplay demo reveal for Demon Soul's from Geoff Keighly and maybe even an interview with the studio.

Considering Spiderman MM got rated recently along with Demon souls. I expect demon souls to be a launch game.

how good is demon souls? I heard it was the hardest souls game to play? I’ve platinumed BB and Sekiro. Played DS3but I couldn’t commit to getting all the miracles, rings and sorceries etc. I just hope Demon souls is fast paced like DS3, BB and sekiro.

Imo Sekiro is the hardest Soul. But as all Souls game it's super hard at first (especially when the mechanics are super new to the player), but once you get used to it it's not that hard, it's just that FS games require high focus and patience, at least more than +99% of other games.

lol hold your ground king. Not sure why grown men are defending random strangers. Remind me again who is this Heisenberg fella and why people think he’s credible?

i think we’re all just frustrated of the lack of news and info a couple weeks prior to launch lol

Both companies trying to get one up on each other have really dropped the ball. Series S gets leaked by people buying a new controller and now this teardown for the ps5 is leaked. So stupid by both.

I doubt that this teardown is what actually the insides of the PS5 look like.

Its more an exercise of imagination from the magazine that posted it.

It's not a real teardown. They're just guessing how the PS5 is built.
Why would some random magazine get the teardown first?

I think i saw something similar to not long time ago. Maybe is this one. Is there something similar or this is the only one?

No game will reach 10.23 TFlops. That's the theoretical max of the system and is only obtainable in the most ideal if circumstances. Depending on how efficient the PS5 is it can get pretty close. Same thing for the XSX because saturating all the CUs perfectly to reach 12Tflops is impossible to do in real life. Just a theoretical max.

Yeah, both are theoretical. But PS5 with it's variable frequencies trying to squeeze much more of it.

The thread slowed to a crawl hahah as expected. People on social media are frustrated and confused. Honestly both marketing heads should be fired for the way they handled the launch of those products so far and we are not even done.

The point is if you are saying that Sony had the edge due to software then it's not impossible for Microsoft to just use better, cheaper software.

Personally I think there are probably cool customizations to the PS5 RT hardware but i'm addressing the claim that it's software that's going to make PS5 do better.

It's patented, it's not like they can. They need to invent their own solution, years of studies and R&D. Sony is licensing it, probably exclusivity deal as well in the console field. It'll be available on PC, smartphones as well.
