I'm around, never left...…..I was on the job yesterday, so only this morning I had time to sit properly through Cerny's talk.....I also watched DF's take....I've given a breakdown in the next gen tech thread recently......I think PS5 is a very well designed piece of kit....I love the custom engineering, it's extremely impressive.......What do you think?

How did I know you'd say something like that?

What do I think? I think Cerny is no genius, but he most definitely is an even better bullshit artist than Greenberg..

So you think PS5 will be a massive failure and won't be as impressive with it's games....?

Ya sure you were.

Your posting history says you posted a a handful of times yesterday afternoon commenting after the reveal, and then bolted for the rest of the day/night.

Yeah I browsed through some reactions, said a few things, but I also missed the first portion of the Cerny video because I was engaged at work.....Saw all the failing blown up trains, don't worry....I still think the proof will be in the pudding though.....

Of course not, it has a cult-like following that rivals Apple, the zealots would buy it even if they just repackaged the PS4 and called it PS5.

BUT it's going to be a LOT closer this gen. I suspect a lot of Xbox 360 owners that jumped to PS4 this gen will come back to the superior machine. I'm even seeing Sony fans talking about making the switch to the superior XsX.

So your only interest is seeing that PS4 owners go to the superior XSX, so what if they don't, what if what the custom silicon PS5 brings to the table negates the 17% deficit in raw TF count?

Stop thinking only consolewarzy……...Look at what's infront of you...….PS5 has lots of custom silicon that removes bottlenecks that are on MS's system and the custom SSD is orders of magnitudes faster too, you think in realtime, this will not show any appreciable results? Even BC titles should see more appreciable results on PS5 vs Series X...based on the design and speed...

We haven't seen the price yet... let's not get ahead of ourselves..
GAF is a very small portion of the 108 million.

I don't give a shit what PS4 owners do. I'm just pointing out that many that want the most powerful console and outstanding Back Compat have seen the light and aren't buying Greenb ........ er Cerny's bullshit.

As for your 2nd paragraph, you're either delirious or on drugs.

" Even BC titles should see more appreciable results on PS5 vs Series X...based on the design and speed..."
Yeah all 100 PS4 games they think will be available at launch as opposed to Xbox, Xbox 360 games that are BC on the One and ALL Xbox One games natively and with XsX upgrades, You're hilarious.

No need for personals, you should be happy that you have the higher TF by a whopping 17%, lets obsfucate the increased custom silicon on the PS5 and the insanely faster SSD and and better sound chip and technology...…..

I await to see what first parties lead the charge in graphics and level design.....I would also love to see which console loads BC games faster and thrid party games too......No need to get feisty catty, you should be elated today...….Now you have the specs and think Cerny is a dolt, we can just wait on the tangibles, the games....

Dissapointed by Sony. We haven't seen the console yet and I am convinced that it will not be released in 2020. No way they will be able to release it this year. Microsoft on the other hand, has a better more powerful console. After owning all Sony's consoles. this will be the one that I will pass. In today's market you loose this generation Sony, and it will be harder to recover. Sony is not Microsoft in terms of capital, and can't allow themself to be behind Microsoft.

You know what, I'm not going to continue to browbeat you. You are one of the most hardcore Sony fanboys here, but I've never seen you attack or harass any Xbox fans unlike the worst Sony fanboys and the reality is I honestly feel bad for you and the all the decent people that just happen to prefer PlayStation.

I kind of know how a lot of you feel today, probably a lot like I felt after the 2013 Xbox E3 conference. Here's the thing, all you PS guys have enjoyed the hell out of your PS4s and you've had and are still getting the games you love this gen and plenty more next gen. The PS5 is a really big step up from the PS4 Pro and a massive step up from the base PS4. Think of how awesome Sony games will be on the PS5.

Trust me the PS4 being far more powerful than the One didn't take away from how much I enjoyed all my games on the One and the power of the XsX won't have any effect whatsoever on your enjoyment of your games on the PS5.

Cheers and happy gaming!

Btw, no hard feelings and there's no need to feel sorry for me, I'm calm and not really disappointed tbh......Yes I was on the higher TF train, but I must say, I do prefer the design Cerny brings here...….You take your time and watch it and go into it without any pre-conceived ideas and biases and you will see there is an actual vision behind the PS5 silicon.....They went balls-deep into eliminating bottlenecks, so it's not a pure TF battle anymore......It's like the big giant in TROY vs the speed of Achilles.....PS5 will be insanely fast with the custom silicon and SSD....

I wish you guys would not take this so personally though, it should be a time of celebration, lets discuss civilly.... I think most of you are just focused on the revenge totem pole, but it may come back to bite when Series X proves to be slower in many areas, we already know the divide is not as big as PS4-XBONES or XBONEX to PRO.....It's only 17% on TF and PS's design has so much silicon to mitigate that.....So the differences you are anticipating might not be forthcoming…...However what I cannot do is to deflate what you think you are gonna get....I get that you like XBOX and are stoked....I wish you the best.....I hope MS brings the games this gen......I'll be playing them if they do, you can count on that, most probably on PC, but it's never really about the hardware, always about the games right?

Also I meant to quote you on the prior post, I guess I type so fast didn't realize...

At the end of the day, the game comparisons from DF and NXGamer etc will show the differences. Its just a shame we will have to wait so long to see them.

I agree, no hard feelings, but just so you know I am still going to continue to harass you, just not today :messenger_winking:

AND I most certainly am going to continue to gloat for at least a few days. Us Xbots have taken 7 years of shit, we're entitled to a little celebrating.

It's interesting how differently people perceived the presentation. I have studied computer hardware engineering and I was hugely impressed by everything Cerny said.

The custom silicon and all the solutions to remove bottlenecks.. Just wow! To me it was mind-blowing, though entirely theoretical. Real-life performance is yet to be seen obviously. But it sounded incredible from an engineering point of view with a lot of smart choices that make sense.

My friend however who also watched it live, was extremely bored and disappointed. I guess it would have been more impressive to just present "big TF number" for most people.

I can't wait to see the design and hear if the cooling is enough, etc. Lot of people right now who seem to think next generation is "lost" for Sony.

Time will tell, but I can't imagine that the PS5 will be a failure in any way. At least not because it has a couple of terraflops less raw computing power than the XSX.

Well, the truth is people were lapping all this time for specs, but now they have it, it's a long waiting game......At least in the meantime PS4 fans have many GOTY level games to play till November...

ps4 vs one = Then ps4 were superior in almost every aspect.

Now you cant say that xsex is "superior", it is faster but not superior in every aspect.

PS5 have superior SSD to begin with.

I would also argue that digital game library + BC will be more important now, than from ps3/360 gen to ps4/one, so "real gamers" probably buy the brand they now have, to be able to play next gen + current gen library. Unless they keep old system and dont want to get to the next gen sequels.

If you want to talk about cult-like following, then you must look at Nintendo, not Sony. Nintendo sells shitty hardware with premium price, sells shitty boring games (like mario) and followers praise how good they are.

Sony is and have always been about the games and gaming experience, and if / when PS5 will continue to give that = few Teraflops aint nothing.

Also casuals have no fucking clue about specs, they just buy the shit that gets popular, like wii did. They dont buy the shit they dont understand, like wii u did.

The big picture matters and it is still long time to the launch, after both systems, controllers and GAMES are shown, then we see the amount of hype they generate.

It is just too early to claim that either side will beat the other into a pulp.

It's foolish to think one will over the other honestly.

The difference will come with games, like it always does.

Haha. Of course you try to put on a brave face for PS5. Admit it. The presentation was a flop.

As for talking civally, you're the last person who should bring this up. On this board you are among the worst often times trying to derail threads into sales wars and gamepass, like many of the hardcore other Sony fans do.

So after Sony shows a weak PS5, now everyone should act like brothers?

I'd bet any money if PS5 was 12-13tf (or more), you'd be here all day and yestertay posting. Cerny does a drab stage show and you bolted for virtually the whole day and some of the others did too.

I think MS fans had their fun already, and we can be more civil going forward, but if you are going to promote brotherhood, then knock it off with all your fanboy sales wars and exclusive SP narrative game lists.

It really was interesting, but it was the worst communication for people who don't care about what is happening inside a console when they play or inside the head of a dev when he build the game for them to play.

Yeah, agreed. I realize this really, really wasn't aimed at casual gamers, or even gamers in general. They should have saved this presentation for later and presented the design, some games and the price first.

The XsX is superior in every aspect except SSD*. Go look at the spec comparison chart
Faster CPU
Better and faster GPU
Faster Ram
12.15TF vs 9.2 - 10.28TF (with boost mode)
*Bigger SSD - 1T vs 825G

And why are you attacking Nintendo & Nintendo fans? I know you're disappointed by what does Nintendo have to do with anything????

Sony fanboy: Can the XSX play Horizon? God of War? Bloodborne? No? PS5 wins this gen.
MS fanboy: Can the PS5 play Gears of War? Forza? State of Decay 2? No? XSX wins this gen.

That's what this will come down to, and it's all personal preference.
