Not DF, Alex specifically but let's remember that videos, screenshots and the devs confirming it isn't enough to convince him about ps5 RT....Because he can watch beyond the screen, beyond the games.Alex doesn't wtach a video he analyses electrical impulse and changing crystals to see his ultimate goal .... LIGHT.
But you have to understand, Alex owns a PC. He even has a Steam account.

It doesn't matter what the developers say. Fact is only he knows the truth (with fuck all talent/experience.)

You are right I usually try not to argue with people on here about stuff but it was good reading materials.

Well, what that article described is exactly what's happening. BOM on that same article was never disputed by anyone also, instead only quoted as source.
And talking about good reading materials, I do remember a few days ago where you told me that DF had "a video where namely John from DF was talking about what Devs were telling him behind the scenes and they did not want this machine", regarding the xbox S.
I spend a good three hours searching that day, only to find out that it was completely irrelevant.

Will there be prices and pre-orders in the show? Surely there'll be?
I honestly dont know.

I would think I mean it has to happen very soon, right?

And seriously not going to argue with you on forums over silly stuff. You keep quoting stuff thats 6+ months old and I will do my thing and we can agree to disagree.

In the end who cares?

Next gen is coming and we all win.

Looks a lot more polished and the stable 60 framerate really improves the gameplay (although I noticed one frame drop at some point).
Yeah I thought everything about it was great except the few framedrops.
Hoping they get ironed out because otherwise it looks pristine.
All those particles holy shit.

Eric Lempel (head of PS marketing) said the first time he saw the PS5, he had to go to a floor in Sony HQ he'd never been to before and it was all guarded inside a locked room. They apparently did not even tell him he was going to see it when they summoned him to the room.

It seems Sony doesn't really fuck around with leaks. They like their secrets. Must be the culture there.
Given how its gone so far it seems like...

Sony with the PS5...







Microsoft with the Series S

It might be six months old, but its 100% solid and what actually happened in the end.
while I was telling this to people when microsoft was on radio silence, I was getting every kind of flak.
so it is only reasonable for me to point this out now, when the pieces have fallen.

also, another truth is that all ps exclusive guys owe a thank you to microsoft, because by a) pricing X so reasonable and b) offering the S at 299,
they sure as hell made sony climb down on their pricing by at least a hundred bucks

I'm still on the fence on whether I should get the Disk PS5 or the DE. I have a good internet connection so going to digital won't bother me since I'm used to steam.
Me too but I'm leaning towards the disc one if it's not too expensive. Reason being for this gen, I've spent a lot on digital PS4 games that I ended up rebuying on Steam when I got a PC. I really should just buy the Blu-rays next-gen and sell them on and then pick up the PC versions when they get cheap.

Well in my case I don't ever sell my games. I like collecting them but then again digital is very convenient.

Xbox boss says the idea of cross-gen games being held back "a meme".


Imagine being this stupid yet be in leaadership.
I see where you're comming from and I too think it will hold back 3rd party next-gen games, but maybe not to the extend that som gaffers think.
He's not stupid though, just convinced. If it's the right conviction though, that's the million $ question wich can only by answered by all the wallets around the world.

so you are saying its easier to design and fabricate an entire new APU, than swap an ssd drive for a faster one IF needed?
I think it is the opposite :]



Yeah, I look around and I see people that get off by photoshopping craig's head on god of war's spear, paint depictions of crucifixion as craig on cross-shaped xboxes, cursing, making statements that do not relate at all to reality and downplaying everything xbox.
Genuine HEALTH, fish-mate :messenger_beaming:
add more cu is an unfathomable mystery .... what I mean is that sony does not have a ballast called S, so it is better placed facing a more than possible update, since its "S" will have 10tf and not 4, and its pro the best performance of i / o system
... of the s series, it won't take us many years to read articles about why it was a mistake ...

more than 50mil xbones have been sold before last year's Christmas holidays
It wasn't. Switch was below Xbone and durint that holiday and NSW surpassed 50 mil. and outsold Xbone

that site is only doing approximations, and at least in the past they used to go back and retro-correct their numbers. it seems they are bored of correcting anymore.
there were some investor calls October-November '19 talking about 50m sales, then you got Niko Partners early 2020 estimating over 50m shipped
Under Niko partnes you mean Zhuge. He said during March this year that Xbone is 50+ million

right now I'm thinking that sony WISH they had a twin solution like microsoft's.
if you can't see it yet, what microsoft did is going to cost sony some money.
imo they will have to model the price of at least one console between the two xboxes.
in that same business article it was described that there are two opposing forces inside sony: those who want to sell many pieces, and those who want to sell for a profit...

Depends on the cross gen game.




Some developers do cross gen better than others. But it is true that current gen systems can hold next gen systems back with their vastly inferior CPUs and I/Os. That goes for Kena as well but thankfully it looks fine for a cross gen title.

Microsoft could have been in another position if they would have shown a decent version of Halo Infinte... seriously, No next gen, just a pretty looking game by the standards of this end of generation...

But now it’s time to watch the people that never let you down.

Common SONY !

I want to see the UI, PS4 to PS5 backwards compatible and enhanced games, new exclusives and price/launch date reveal.
And whatever the fuck is Naughty Dog cooking up: TLoU2 PS5, TLoU Factions, new IP, new game... WHATEVER, just show me.
If I don't see a Santa Monica Studio and Naughty Dog logo on this thing I'm gonna do nothing.

Don't expect Naughty Dog at the event. Mayyybe TLOU2 multiplayer if anything.
