Yeah, problem is it's expensive. I told my wife that I wanna marry the whole world if I can, but I'll save that to the heavens if I manage to.:lollipop_tears_of_joy: With all the xbox fanboys committing seppuku because of my memes, I might get fucked by Lucifer in hell instead. :lollipop_crying:
Not a chance you're getting off that easy. You'll be forced to play the Halo Infinite demo for all eternity.

I too would like to join the Holy Cult of FUD!
There is an admission fee of $900 (no, I might need a couple extra controllers) $1,200, I collect these directly instead of the famous members you are familiar with. BTC only.

For this low one-time fee you'll have the privilege to view amazing theories like GPU in Power Brick , PS5 is a Powerful Console, and Kinect is the Future of Gaming at no additional fee.

Rumor: PS5 Will Switch To Your Second Controller When Your Battery Is Low

Sony Interactive Entertainment has filed a brand new patent for a “low battery switch over” system. PS5 has a rechargeable battery which, of course, drains over time. However, rather than waiting for it to charge or connecting a USB cable to play, you can immediately switch to your second controller.
The console will send a low battery warning to the player, also presenting the option to switch to the second controller, creating a smooth transition.

Hey guys, I can shed some light on the mediamarkt preorder thing.

I live in the NL and actually made a preorder on the PS5, the deal is that if you pay 50 euros you get first inline for your preorder to be processed when Sony will announce them.

It still has a placeholder price (9999 euros) and I just checked now and the last time they updated the product page was on the 13th of August.

I guess they just made this promotion with preorder more visible now

I must apologize since I misunderstood the video that I put a few messages back.

Thank god it is not a sad day for the gamer. I withdraw what I said since I misunderstood what the video meant. I got confused and thought that Series S was the one that took 53 seconds which caused me a bit of shock and sadness about how I was going to stop the games.

However, finally, the one that took 53 seconds was the One X and Series S charged in 12 seconds.

Someone told me to rewatch the video. And at that moment I made the mistake again in my head.

Sorry for the FUD for my misunderstanding of the video.

A greeting.

The metadata for the page shows a different update date.

Welp...

Xbox Series S Won’t Apply Xbox One X Enhancements, Microsoft Confirms

“Xbox Series S was designed to be the most affordable next generation console and play next generation games at 1440P at 60fps. To deliver the highest quality backwards compatible experience consistent with the developer’s original intent, the Xbox Series S runs the Xbox One S version of backward compatible games while applying improved texture filtering, higher and more consistent frame rates, faster load times and Auto HDR.”

A smaller GPU doesn't just mean you can turn down the resolution and you're good to go. A smaller GPU has lower geometry throughput, lower texture throughput. Depending on the render back end it could have a lower raster throughput.
Certainly, the reduced pixel pushing power can be compensated for by lowering the resolution, but you also need to reduce geometric complexity, lower quality textures etc.
It is a compromise, no two ways about it.

Bring on the leaks. Serves Sony right for leaving it late, even though I’m a massive Sony fan.

I am just a new tech junkie and that £450 Series X looks good for multi plats. But the main reason I prefer Sony is the 1st party titles, I hope they give us a date before the 22nd otherwise this could be the first generation I do multi systems. Decisions decisions.

What's a good rig? Cause you'll need a 3070 to beat the consoles. Or more. $1000s on total build.

Most PC gamers don't have that.
$1000? Are you joking? $2000 if you cheap out on nearly everything, yet you need a threadripper with codes giving it something similar to PS5's i/o that matches 11-12x ZEN2 cores. PC gamers should only be focusing at beating XSX for now, and pay at least 4x the price.
