Found the old hype train from March. Look how young we were.
So many hopes and rumors, so many bans and trolls, and thousands of pages of arguing.
Rest In Peace, those who have fallen along the way.
Today we shall finally have our day of joyous celebrations.





Full speed ahead!

Damn...it's been a long journey. Fun for the most part, though! I just hope we REALLY get to step off the hype train today and start getting settled in!

i am close to 50 and i don't really go crazy for to much of the harder stuff, in fact, i have strayed into the classical music setting, thanks to my mum (god rest her soul) in many ways as strange as it sounds i find the two of them similar in many aspects. Sounds really crazy when i read that out loud but yer it is what it is. I am very keen on Vivaldi, Mozart and a few others.

I think my love for classical music and metal began because of old Fortuna , by carl orff, i remember it from an old spice advert when i was a kid lol. Strange how that made me love that kind of music, you probably recall this.


These days some of my old favorites still hold firm, lighter bands like Alice Cooper, ugly kid joe, wasp, the crimson idol, probably imo the greatest album ever written.

The crazy thing now in my ripe old age i love music from all walks of life or fields ok maybe not fucking Aqua like @geordiemp does.

I spend so much time listening to Simon and Garfunkle, Fleetwood mac, Enya, beach boys, dire straits, the list goes on and on.
Pushing 50, eh? You're well beyond you oceanic years fish.

tripto-whatever posted here in pride that his video of ratchet that he made for me, was posted on b3d.
It was posted, and immediately refuted as proof for the loading times he claims he "frame-counted".
This on itself is an autonomous and self-proven subject, whether you are able to understand it, or not.
As I said, only a developer that has developed a game can give you a "thorough explanation of the loading mechanisms" he used. In ratchet' case, that would be insomniac.
On b3d, various examples of masked loading are given from other, existing games, as if needed to convince some thickheads.
At some point, one of you guys should just tweet at Insomniac for an answer. It doesn't hurt to try.

I don't know why you're guys so hyped, the whole event will last 40 minutes and will mainly show some UI, the price, release date and maybe there will be 20 minutes left for games, with probably mainly gameplays from already announced like Horizon Forbidden West or Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
1. It can easily be 37 mins of games
2. I doubt we see UI
3. Price and release date only take 1 min at the end

Yep, but the gray market hasn't been kind on us. Switch is going to be launched here in about 2 days and it cost less to buy officially than through import. Crazy times, specially when it's a Nintendo console.
What if you happen to travel abroad on your vacations and buy it abroad at normal prices. Sure beats waiting a couple years and you get some vacation time too :D

Because we're video games fans on a video game forum, and this is the biggest announcement of the year?

Why is Twitch so fucking shit at letting you access upcoming streams? I'm on the Ps4 app, and can't see it for looking, even on Playstation's profile.

Isn’t it interesting that all this hype is setting people’s expectations of Price, UI reveal, pre-order date and anything else left to come out....
Sony did NOT say anything in there blog release about them talking about it, sure it could happen, but all the did was not put in the statement they have before. They said they are talking about games, they just left out where they typically say “that it’s only about games, so temper expectations”.

is it possible that this is the event where we get moe info? Yes, but crazy to think it’s because Sony DIDN’T say something.

"Do you think people want fresh new games for the next gen?"

"Nah. Probably just want the same shit at higher res with some bells and whistles slung in."

"Good. Because that sounds a lot easier."
It looks better than Halo Infinite though, so probably there are people who would find this shit good.

So you think this would be a good time to tear down my shrine?!
I mean there are people who still playing counter-strike and other ancient games...

Well, the clearest indicator to me that we're getting price and release date is that Amazon have removed their landing pages for all Ps5 products. This means that they are preparing to go live with something else. Something substantially different from the initial landing pages, which indicates that they are putting the ordering mechanisms in place. They also take pages down to perform server and site stress tests. I'd imagine they're probably thinking the Ps5 might be quite popular.

I'd be very surprised if we don't get price and release date tonight.
