    SONY and Microsoft are real cheapskates. Neither comes close to even having 1TB usable, they're both around 800GB.

    Given how big games are nowadays, 2TB should have been included.

    @Boesy
    I was just talking to my friend the other day about this. Idk about the Series-X but the PS5 will only have 667 free space once you get everything up in running. For $500 the standard should be 2TB HD space and 2 controllers with a "Wired" gaming headset for that it would be a very justifiable price. But for 1TB and 1 controller and they expect you to shell out $70 an an additional controller it's pretty outrageous. I mean considering the PS5/Series-X are selling like hot cakes the general public doesn't seem to be concerned about the price. It's funny how they push online and multiplayer in your face for most games but they still give you 1 controller.

    over the years there have been less and less exciting releases for me. all the assassin's creed and FPS are basically the same to me and most TPS (like Control) look incredibly generic and boring. The visuals are cool to look at but most of the time there's barely any substance beyond them.

    I'm not really impressed either, but at this point would probably still buy a PS5 once supply catches up with demand just to sustain the playability of the thousands of dollars worth of PS4 games I bought over the past few years. My original PS4 is getting a bit ragged and would likely have to eventually be replaced anyway. I had to open it up and disable the eject touch sensor after the damn thing started randomly spitting out discs.

    I get why people are excited for PS5 and Xbox Series X, it's new consoles but for me I just don't see it.

    You know what would make me excited in terms of gaming? New old stock of Dreamcast, Nintendo and PlayStation games. I've come across that's closed now and it's FULL of sealed games of those consoles, the owner is a retired salesman whom told me he has someone taking care of the financial problems it gave him (no one bought because it was basically in a dead mall).

    Man, if I get all of that.. holy shit it'll blow my mind. Just even seeing it made me almost have a heart attack. lol

    I feel the same way. I've owned four TVs over the past several years, and not one of them has been able to display anything more than 1080p. It might be pointless to buy a new console now.

    I haven't been impressed with console releases for a while now. I had bought an Xbox One on release day and hardly touched it so I ended up selling it a few months later. Got a PS4 the end of last year and I basically only use it to play Persona because none of the exclusives really interested me. The latest generation is the nail in the coffin for me when it comes to owning a console for a few reasons. The latest Xbox no longer has much reason to exist because of Microsoft making their games playable on PC and the PS5 just looks like a PS4 with prettier graphics. Nintendo is the only company that I will still buy consoles from because they're different and actually care about the gameplay of their games and consoles instead of pretty graphics. I honestly think the Switch is way better than the current generation consoles simply because it's more fun. Graphics don't equal fun.

    The graphics had a huge jump from SD to HD, now it's just slightly better, imo.

    SEGA Rally 95 to this day still looks amazing to me, and it's so much fun!



    I've yet to finish every state before the time runs out.

    I rarely play non-Nintendo games these days. I was a late adopter of the PS4 (bought it two years ago) and mostly bought one to replace my slow af Blu-Ray Player. Might as well buy one that plays video games while I'm at it.

    In fact, that's the only reason I'm even considering buying a PS5, to use as an UHD 4K Blu-Ray Player. That and for when Persona 6 inevitably comes out on the platform.

    Now that I've seen just how quality the Xbox Series X is, the way you can just use gamepass, and that you can run dev mode on it easily, no, I've gone from totally disappointed to actually pretty impressed.

    Huh?
    I guess you're the only one that was amazed by that.
    If that's how you felt, then you just grew up and your interests are elsewhere.

    I belive huge changes between generations stopped with the PS1->PS2 / N64->Gamecube.
    Since then it's been mostly bigger resolution, better graphics... that's it.

    Well, the Wii is an exception.

    The glaring lack of compelling exclusives, the artificial scarcity, and the anticlimactic "jump" in visual fidelity all turn me off from jumping to next gen.

    Dreamcast still feels next-gen to me, why do I need a PS5 or XSX?

    The generational differences in visuals are not a large enough jump between the generations to really feel justified for me, even going from the base PS4 and base X-Bone to PS5 and Xbox SeX. Besides the upgrades to PCIe SSDs, it still feels like a small mid-generational upgrade, rather than next-gen. The jump between PS3 and PS4 was HUGE.

    IDK know if I'd call the jump from PS3 to PS4 huge. Does it generally look better? Sure. But that comes at a cost: the games made for the consoles usually are playing at 30fps, whereas the slew of remasters made for the PS4 and XBOne seem to usually target 60FPS because the hardware can play those games at those resolutions.

    Honestly, the big differences between this generation and the last comes down to the lighting in games not being "gray and green to pursue realism," and everything being open world even if it has no right to be or would benefit from a tighter structure.

    I went from PS1 => PS2 => XBOX 360 => PS3 => PS4 and I totally agree with you. The jump from PS3 to PS4 is just prettier graphics. I still remembered when I discussed it with my friends when PS3 and XBOX 360 came out. We were like, did u see the clothes and hair swinging realistically? Also GTA SA to GTA IV.
    PS4 just makes those more realistic like PS5 did to PS4.

    PS2 to PS3 is like 3DS to Switch IMO. PS3 to PS4 or PS4 to PS5 is just like upgrading from GTX 1080 to RTX 2080.
