    At this point, with how 2020 is going, both systems should just delay their launches to 2021, or 2022 if they want to be ABSOLUTELY SURE that nothing else will go wrong.

    I have never seen everything in the world go to shit harder than it has in these past four months. I worked at a Walmart for four years up until early last month. I never came down with the coronavirus, and I've been just fine. Who knows, maybe I'm asymptomatic.

    But everyone rioting, looting, and everything in between at this rate? This is like, the 5-7 times just in the last decade that shit like this happens. No one normal gives a shit about your skin color, and we couldn't give a rat's ass about "unconscious -ism" this or that.

    You guys want affirmative action to get dismantled? Keep rioting and keep ruining people's lives who are just trying to make an honest living. I'm talking about your local barber shop, local grocery store, your local comic shop, whatever. Even the people working at Walmart, Best Buy, Target or other targets the "HURR DURR BIG CORPORATION BAD, FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GOOD" crowd like to attack don't deserve to get shit thrown at them while the police go and start joining the protestors in the streets like what happened up in Minneapolis.

    No, I'm not minimizing the past, or any other fucking arguments you guys are going to try and twist my motherfucking words into. All life is inherently valuable by itself. But that doesn't excuse people's responsibility to do the right godforsaken thing. People. Notice I didn't say anything about someone's race, sex, gender, genetics, skin color, orientation, lifestyle, or whatever other category people on both sides of the aisle like to use to classify people.

    If you still want to call me whatever after this, I don't care anymore. I'm not going to censor myself when it's become abundantly clear that a sizable segment of society is willing to destroy property to get the things that they want for nothing. I've always believed in a fair trade between two parties without any other interference from some bureaucrat who understands nothing of us regular people just trying to live our life.

    Give me liberty or give me death!

    I don't even care about the specs or details, there is little that they could reveal that would change my mind about buying it. Every release had been a huge upgrade from it's predecessor, I trust Sony. Just go ahead and open up pre-orders.

    To be honest with you I wouldn't expect too much there was maybe a 25% increase from PS3-PS4 it wasn't the 90% increase from PS2-PS3. PS5/Seriex X talk about load time this and load time that but what about the games ? Sony is going to feel the pressure more because honestly there wasn't really that much diversity of gaming since PS2. PS3 - PS4 had some games but we had more games in PS2... we had (3) GTA games on PS2 and techncially (2) on the PS3- and (1() on the PS4. The more "pretty graphics" we get the longer it's going to take to make a game... and honestly some of the best games ever came from PS2 not to mention we wasn't swarmed in DLC and addons evreything was on this disk like it was supposed to be. Needed a new character you had to unlock him not buy them (unless you had a codebreaker) . Next Gen is like a cell phone it is nice to have but you don't really need it yet. But then again this is just my opion some people don't mind swapping consoles evrey 5 years. I thought they said the human eye cant see past 4K we are going to get to a point in life where home consoles are going to be a thing in the past.

    We had more features on PS3 than PS4 :wacko:

    I feel like, between Nintendo's strict reliance upon gimmicks and first party games which sometimes feels like them throwing ideas to the wall and seeing what sticks and Xbox's focus on services and, let's be real here, prominently featuring shooter games and maybe the one game that made you wish you owned the system before said game came to Steam (*Killer Cuts OST here*), Sony realizes you have to have a good balance of both to rise up to the top. Hence why they were able to barely pull a last stand and actually outsell the 360 by the end of its life with the PS3 if you can believe it and managed to use that goodwill in addition to Microsoft eating out its own ass with Don Mattrick, Adam Orth, the Kinect on both the 360 and the One initially, and trying to promote the fact that you can watch TV on the system.

    If people wanted DVRs, they'd buy DVRs back in 2013, and I can tell you from my 3 months or so in electronics at Walmart before being offered full time to move to stocking and unloading trucks for the past four years until my current job, more people want those DVD/Blu-ray players and other random shit than you'd think, and they aren't all that bright when it comes to setting up phones, much to my facepalm!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Yeah, this is my thoughts as well. As much as I hate the form factor and how LOUD the damn thing is, the George Foreman grill PS3s at least have all of the modern touches of a system (wireless controllers, support for external devices) with all of the native BC for both systems, and considering how many games are still coming out on the system (I think even the latest update to Under Night In-Birth abbreviated as UNICLR came to it, for example, in addition to Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2), it's honestly kind of impressive how much power is apparently on the damn thing, and when you add in all of the emulation capabilities it has (RetroArch got its start on the PS3, did it not?), you have one HELL of a device that isn't as capable as a modern PC, let's not fool ourselves here, but considering all I was able to do with it (including my teenage self being able to hide the fact that I could browse the Internet on the device, which meant I could get past my mom's fear of yours truly looking at rule 34 stuff... :rofl2:) I could see it being on my entertainment center for a very long time.

    Just wish there was a way to make the entire thing smaller and fit into a more compact case that also cools it better!

    Hardware and OS wise the WIIU is a disaster but it did have some good games and some really good modding capabilities

    The ps3 is one of the best multimedia devices of all time, especially with homebrew. blu ray and dvd players, ps1-ps3 games all on 1 system, the start of retroarch, (though unfortunately it doesnt get as much attention as the pc version nowadays) like there's really nothing to hate about it
    PS3 was what the xbox one wanted to be
    plus it had a good library of games... besides the 600 dollar price point its sad that the ps3 did so poorly. though, that's what happens when you succeed on the last 2 gens, and seeing as how the ps4 was a moderate success by sony standards, it seems like another ps3 might be happening soon with the ps5

    I certainly hope they don't have a repeat of this:



    A lot of the sales were because of the better library of exclusives compared to the 360 which, around the time the PS3 Slim came out in 2010/2011-ish, was when the 360 became more about Kinecting than it was about gaming!

    I also imagine not having to pay to play online helped matters as well.

    500GB is a joke! I hope they don’t even release that amount of storage. Currently on my PS4 500GB I have to delete every time I want to install something a game just in order to have enough space.

    today every game needs 80 GB of storage; 500 GB IS a joke.

    I almost prefer that the SSD is small. I can just replace it with another NVMe and it'll be cheaper.
