Still not buying this shit... hope everyone else has a good time with their backlog though.
Edit - For seething Fanboys getting salty at not wanting something:
- This fat fuck console is ugly as sin, I'd rather wait for the revision as it is giving people hardware issues... instead I bought my LG CX and am waiting for the 3080Ti price reveal.
- I will not pay $60 for a DLC of Spiderman
- I have an extensive backlog of PS Exclusives
- I do not buy games at launch when they will be discounted significantly later since I have patience
- Imagine shaming someone for not buying this shit, people really have become stupid
Perfectly fine to disagree. But why the hype?
- PS5 has a cross-gen Spider-Man.
- Demon's Souls is a Remake.
- Everything else is 3rd Party or Backlog
Seems like herd mentality at this point.
Not liking PS5 is fine, but this is bordering into “you must be crazy/sheeple for liking it, allow me to wake you up” as if there were something to do about it (the other console? Not as much... *tumbleweeds*). It reads more like hand waving this away in a dismissive manner.
As much as cross generation games do held things back, MM and Spider-man remastered look a lot better on the PS5 and if you have yet to play either or both there are enough advantages (quality or framerate wise) plus Dual Sense integration that tip the scales for the PS5 version.
You can keep shouting “Demon’s Souls is a remake, wake up it is just a remake”... but I am not sure you are doing it justice at all. This is not a quick port, many have yet to play the original and the game has been remade from the ground up: we are going from an unstable sub 30 FPS experience to a pretty much locked 60 FPS experience at a much higher fidelity and resolution on a game where reaction time matters. Dying a lot and restarting is also a lot easier on players from a QoL point of view thanks to much improved loading times and both graphics and sound have received a lot of work and it shows (all the reviewers picked up on both)... and again quite well realised Dual Sense integration.
Same can be said for the performance and quality of other titles like Sackboy: A Big Adventure (quite a step up in the PS5 version), ... let alone true PS5 exclusives upcoming little gems like Ratchet & Clank that are coming shortly on a known in advance in-demand console sold. Backlog titles rolleyes and 3rd parties (that perform much better on PS5 than PS4 and do even have pros against the XSX version)... yeah so? Is it so strange that a very popular console like PS4 well supported with great games throughout its lifetime has generated a lot of interest for what looks like a very well designed successor?
PS4 titles vs PS5 ones brings integration of Dual Sense’s haptics, fast loading times, better PS4 titles BC performance on PS5 (patched and unpatched alike; especially so if you never updated to a pro version), and UHD Blu-Ray playback finally. All of this also helps tip the scales for the latter.
