You're the biggest fanboy in here :D.

 

Some of the games looked great the other night to add onto the already impressive list so Sony still miles ahead. I do think it's ridiculous that they banged on about the need for console generations and that you needed a PS5 to deliver those new experiences, then they go and say that Horizon and Miles Morales aren't PS5 exclusives anymore when they said they would be. Imagine if Microsoft did that lol.

 

Apparently Amazon is emailing people telling that they may not be able to deliver on launch day which must be gutting if you've pre-ordered from there.

 

Yes, announcing the PS4 version for Horizon was an arrogant move by Sony imo, but they know they can do what they like.  Also, I'm expecting an outstanding sequel, but will it be as outstanding as it could be now it's being developed on PS4 and not solely PS5?  We'll probably end up with an upscaled pro version.

 

SimplyGames have guaranteed delivery on release day, so we shall see.  Decent company to deal with, as are ShopTo.

From a commercial point of view it makes sense for those 2 games. When you've got such popular franchises you want to sell them on consoles with a massive install base and particularly when you're in the first year of a console where that install base will be small. Don't agree with Microsoft's decision to develop games on both gens for 2 years as it will definitely hold games back so I'd imagine that will happen here. Sure it will still be great (not that I've played the first one as I've got open world fatigue and will be trading in my PS4 soon)

 

I got my Xbox One from Shopto on release day but I had some big issue with them recently so I wouldn't want to get anything from there again. Just seen that Argos, Very and John Lewis are cancelling pre orders so I guess the production issues with PS5 were true.

 

And that's why I'm glad the Series X will be by primary console as it'll be nowhere near popular enough to sell out :D. Not that there's much point in getting it but my XB1 is on its last legs. Probably look at a PS5 next year, particularly when God of War 2 is out.

I'll be very surprised if God Of War gets released next year. Spring 2021 at the earliest I'd have thought. 

 

lol

 

2021 is next year!

 

Currently debating whether or not to pre-order AC Valhalla on PS5.  Can't imagine there will be too much of a rush on the games, there should be plenty of stock available.  Extremely pricey as always at launch, Demon Souls is £70 :blink:

I'm assuming it's got a free upgrade to PS5 so might as well get it on PS4 if it's cheaper.

 

Yeah the £70 is a lot. Think some are up to $70 dollars for this gen but will be stupid if that translates to pound sterling as standard. Actually saw that some of the first party games are €80 which is ridiculous.

Does anyone on here have any experience running a PS4 off a gaming monitor?  Looking at switching to a monitor for PS5 since a TV upgrade will cost over £1200 for something too big.  I'm looking at anything up to £400 and around 28".

£70 for a game? Jesus Christ, I'd forgotten how expensive they are when a new console is released.

Still not as expensive as some SNES games were back in the day, people are quick to forget how expensive games have been in the past and how much they've actually come down in price since the early 90's

I've still got a Sega magazine from about 1994 knocking around somewhere with a Special Reserve advert in it, and I swear Street Fighter 2 Turbo for the SNES was £59.99, which adjusted for inflation is just over £120 in today money

 

Factor in that games used to be developed much quicker, with much smaller teams, and didn't have to bother with any form of bug fixes, patching, DLC, server support etc. Gaming is far better value these days, as long as you're not a moron who plays pay-to-win or spends £700 a year on Fortnite costumes or FUT packs

So I'm looking at 144hz monitors around 27".  Curved screen is what I'm angling towards.  1080p would appear to be a better option than 4k.  1440p is not out of the question either, the PS5 can do 1440p.  

 

Looks as though prices range from 240 ish to about 450.

I don't believe this has been confirmed yet? Be wary, the PS4 Pro doesn't support 1440p, it looks like total shit on my 1440p monitor. It just downscales to 1080 and it does not look good.

Can you game share on PS like you can on Xbox? Atm my and my brother only have to buy the digital game on my account and we can both play it (even at the same time) on both our Xbox One consoles.

EDIT: Found what I meant.

 

Hopefully it's available on PS5 consoles.
