I mean its some sort of mental sickness, i have seen people calling out id software guys saying these guys don't know what they are talking about.
You got that That fucking fool Eastwood arguing with people on twitter again, ok he is 100% shill and is probably getting paid or is getting a free xbox for all his videos but jeez, have some self-respect.

As for TheGreatWhiteShark TheGreatWhiteShark , the proof will be in the pudding on Wens night, is he still going to be completely in denial or will he finally join in and praise the ps5 and what he sees, we know it's going to be big.

I think he is still going to find a way to try and throw shade at the show, but maybe he might see sense, don't bank on it though. I do live in hope.

After seeing the new horizon dawn two trailer or God of war trailer he will be like "BUT BUT GAMEPASS DUDES" LOL
I tried to think of a better reply... But still couldn't get passed the part where they were all arguing with actual devs that voiced concern about the XSS. That's a "step the fuck away" red flag if there ever was one.

And I mean game pass is good. It's a service that I see no value from personally. Plenty of people want to play older games. No issue with that. Issue is that I'm what they don't want... Someone that doesn't ever play old games. So I and others like me have no value to them because it's going to have to take some extensive mental bios upgrade for them to accept a lot of people just prefer the newer shinier 'in' thing and not something from years ago.

Do you think it matters what happens to xbox one and ps4 once the new consoles launch? surely a sale of a ps4 is still making sure a customer doesnt get into the xbox ecosystem? Could sony or microsoft orice the ps4 or xbox one so low as to ensure people get them instead? Like 149.99 or somerhing like that?
Maybe we'll see 7nm super slim $199 PS4 with free games.

No cornholio, that sony video other than pure trollish was also DAMAGING. to YOUR interests!
I've written about this again, let me do a recap:

Microsoft planned to go digital, and they were offering a very sweet deal compared to existing digital policies (ie PC)
ONE license could be shared among 10 friends. their "friends and family" list.
Now, within the same generation that launched with sony officials fuckin' trolling blatantly microsoft's offering,
we have digital adoption that is very close to 50% and climbing mighty fast.
What's the difference? ONE license is good for ONE person. that's 10X damage for the consumer.
Microsoft was even talking about how you could even transfer (sell) your license digitally to your gamestops and what not, if you wanted to.

Now, I understand that 99% of the people in this thread are not clear-headed enough to understand. That's ok. I'm writing this for the 1%
Think about it..




sorry but you don't have a clue
So what stops Microsoft to have these 10 in 1 deals for digital games? Sony ninjas gonna stab em with playstation brand katanas?

Im sure that multi billion dollar company should be able to deal with these things

Hmmm. Who to believe... Random dude on internet who has been proved to get stuff wrong....... or Bloomberg.



EDIT: it takes literally five seconds to find that Bloomberg report. The guy is trying to say he knows better than fucking Bloomberg. These people are insane.
I also believe that Zhuge said the XSXs BOM was slightly higher. So I would definitely put more faith in what those two said than Dusk Golem in my opinion.

I mean it doesn't hurt Sony when bogus insiders together with xbox fans say that it takes $600 to produce one unit of PS5. They could be right, that ultra-fast SSD might be costing them a lot.

But really it only helps the PS5 to look like a steal at $499 and $399. I personally think it's costing Sony about a little more than $500 in total to ship a unit of PS5. Sony is definitely taking a loss in my opinion.

They might manufacture more blu-ray editions than digital editions initially in order to reduce the impact of financial loss.

Prim units and rasterisers are built into each shader array, of which there are two per shader engine.
As it has half as many shader engines, it has half as many prim units and rasterisers. Therefore half as many triangles per clock.
Add in 15% lower clockspeed and you end up with roughly 42.5% of the Series X's geometry throughput.
As i suspected then. Thanks for the explanation. 👍

Dusk to the rescue to balance things out

Fact is Bloomberg is way more reliable than Dusk.
Fact is Sony double the production of PS5 to 10 mil. till end of March 2021.
Fact is RAM prices went down.

How PS5 can cost above 500 when production is doubled and BOM is below XSXs BOM up to 70$

The majority of gamers want new games, it's a fact. It's nothing to do with money, as said before, give me all the games since Atari 2600 for free and I won't even start one. I like new games, and I'm always looking for new innovations.

9-10/10 games don't hurt either.
Just to know the effort and quality put into everything.
5-7 just says "That'll do."

I want to see the boot speed but if not definitely the UI into game and show a couple of titles loading in 2 seconds or less. 2 should be the max really it depends if said games use oodle texture or other ways in which it loads in a second. Just throw us a few good examples. A few quick BC games examples too.

Then games games games and maybe end with a brief system fly through revealing a few more features and surprises that were rumoured and then end with price.

I think this show is going to put to bed a few more doubts, just like previously, where people thought PS5 cant do this or that and ends up doing 4k60 just like XSX.

A lot of L's have been taken already by those doubters from the Xbox side, another will be if some features turn our correct and for eg Horizon forbidden west was indeed gameplay in some parts.

Cant wait.
Wild theory time: Warframe is implementing compression via Oodle Textures. Since Destiny 2 signed the marketing with Microsoft and Game Pass, Sony needs a big F2P game to show off. So they’ll probably show next-gen Warframe with some crazy things... I mean, even Rebecca from Digital Extremes was on that “Welcome to PS5” video.

Chances of that happening: 0%. I just like to run wild theories.

Didn't he say he knew the prices? And how does he know the BOM? That's a 150$ more than what Bloomberg said.
Even Bloomberg is just guessing based on publicly known bulk prices ( most of the time higher than actual in the world of bulk sales and large scale projects). This really depends on how much Sony is expected to sell and how that can influence the negotiations.

Also the price of the console is not based on the cost of the first year units but rather on the cost forcast in the longer term and how much is the profit forecast in that same time frame.

Also if sony sees high demand on their console then they may not worry much about launch year price😂 they can keep it as high as they can and reduce it in a 2nd year. PS3 was able to sell 88 million despite a first year of 599. The market is much bigger now and Phil Spencer's Xbox is not Peter Moore' s Xbox.

Aaron Greenberg didn't make this video. He just laughed with it and was genuine enough not to hide it.
Now tell me, how many hours of laughter -hidden behind your eyes- do you think Shu and blondie had before they managed to film these 20seconds without bursting to laughs?
And mind you, this is an official SONY production

I find your double standards amazing
Lol dude just let it go already. You sound like Sony murdered your parents and raped your dog when you were young. That video was legit funny, didn't actually refer the Xbox in any way, and it was thanks to it that your dear brand started shifting their course.

So if you're happy where things landed on the Xbox side, just remember to thank Shu and Adam there :messenger_tears_of_joy:

the short-sighted and gullible console crowd was thriving with that ps4 share video, and took that digital policy and shoved it deep into microsoft's ass.
not only ms had to run and revert everything, but it also cost them 50% of their place in the market and a tremendous amount of bad publicity.

why should they bring it back now, when digital absorption is the rule and not something as ground-breaking as they were trying to introduce back then?
and why would they even take that risk of having some corporate trolls causing them even more damage?

my 2c's is that next time the console crowds receive an offer for something groundbreaking, it would be wise if they use their brains for a change.

Personally, I'm more shocked at the gap between standard PS5 and digital edition PS5. By how some people talk (both in and outside of here), you'd think physical media gamers were approaching white rhino levels of near-extinction.
I'm full digital since late 2014, but I'll buy the standard version just in case.

Dusk may get a couple things right(Shenmue anime, etc.) but there's no way Sony comes in at $549. What Sony pays for components is anyone's real guess, honestly.

You can't assert your position positively as market leader and take the wind out of the competition by coming out with a price that high.

Moreover, you would have a more difficult time ensuring the "quick transition" that Sony has said they've wanted to try and make happen.

Again, you can't speak to what loss they are willing to take. We know Microsoft is taking a loss on both X and S(with loss on S being probably higher).

It is vexing to me how Sony, somehow, is incapable of taking a loss in the minds of some like Dusk. It's just such a reach..but for Microsoft its no big deal. Sony isn't some dirt poor company.

Let’s wait Odium make a tweet explaining how PS5 is expensive now.

The truth PS5 is cheaper to produce the Series X...

- APU is cheaper
- PCB/Motherboard are cheaper
- Bus and ram layout are cheaper

What is out in question if it is expensive the SSD or cooling but there is no way the difference offsets the APU difference for example... imagine the rest.

The video is funny, you can't deny that. It isn't particularly toxic either unless you melt super easy.
Yeah that's exactly how MS employees should act, their true colours, fanning the fanboy console wars :messenger_beaming: As long as they don't claim to be against it later, it's fine and I would expect nothing less from Greenberg anyway.

Oh jeez when did you get that tag?

I have no ideia I have a tag... maybe when I was calling out the FUD and lies in that Nikana thread.

You know these that receive more reports are tagged I guess.

BTW I don’t think Phil talk talk is pretty in any way... there are pretty of mans way handsome than him.

I don't think Phil or his family look pretty either. I mean look at what the Xbox Modern Family looks like.
