    Are we heading a future where PlayStation and Xbox merge? How dystopian!

    This is shitty for game collectors. If your hardware dies, you lose your games if and when the console is considered "dead and unsupported" by their respective companies.

    Isnt it already happening with a lot of switch games being sold digitaly only? Or the physical ones that have half the game in the cartridge and you have to download the rest of it?

    Sorry guys the days of collecting are done everything will become digital which is scary look at 4k movies you can get them for digital much cheaper than disc even Blu Ray's I paid 12.99 for arrows version of deep red on Google play and the disc cost over 25 dollars on Amazon if video games follow that strategy people will buy digital because it will be cheaper

    Makes sense, Microsoft is a major player in Cloud tech.

    You want your minds blown further, chances are many Sony studios use Microsoft products (Office, Windows, Visual Studio, etc.). And I bet somebody at Microsoft used a Sony branded product. Truly, this means Halo on PS5 and Uncharted on Xbox.

    With Xbox being essentially a stripped down PC at this point, which isn't to diss the impressive specs of an Xbox One X in anyway, but when you already have a beast of a system like yours truly, it makes getting an Xbox kind of pointless especially when a lot of their games are coming to Steam of all places! And they said Microsoft was going to turn Windows into a MS Monopoly (not that they couldn't in the future, tbf).

    Still, talk about Top 10 Worst Anime Crossovers, as it's using a feature I can't ever see myself using, as dropped inputs and frames as a fighting game buff (not pro, that's for sure) drive me crazy like you wouldn't believe, as if I fuck up, I want it to be my fault as a player, and if I make progress, I want it to be my effort!

    It would kill the point of getting a console for each of the respective companies to allow players to play Halo on PS5 or Yakuza/God of War on Xbox. At that point, it'd become a question of what controller do you like better or which system has the better specs if they aren't aiming for parity for all practical intents and purposes like the launch versions of the PS4/XB1?

    On your lap.
    Some only do that for the international release. Final Fantasy X+X2 for example uses a larger cartridge with both games on cart for the Japanese and Asia release which include an english option.
    Megaman X Anniversary Collection 2 got a physical release in Japan, but only if you buy separately, not the bundle.

    Wait where did it say that they're abandoning physical games? If the rumors are true that ps5 will be backwards compatible then surely it means the ps5 will have a bluray disc to play ps4 games and most likely ps5 games would also be on discs.

    Bet microsoft will still want to recycle its failed groove.exe from the 90s which they made into onedrive and is why it sucks arse.

    They should give customers the option to use their own cloud account to sync game saves etc

    All streaming means you literally own nothing.

    Exactly my first thought.
    Except that it will all be compatible with Stadia, they just don't want to make it obvious right now. In the future that the powers that be want no one owns anything (except them of course). And this does not end with digital media it extends to property ownership. If you think this is conspiracy think again. Individuals cannot privately own land in China but may obtain transferrable land-use rights for a number of years for a fee. Currently, the maximum term for urban land-use rights granted for residential purposes is seventy years. ... Both urban land-use rights and home ownership are subject to registration.Mar 1, 2015. This means you cannot own land and thus you cannot leave it to your children. Wake up Neo.
     
  20. Maybe for you but mine is perfect
