@WebHead seriously lol, not every post has to be an essay!

Power does matter a little but I've never purchased a console based in power. It's safe to assume either the ps5 or Xbox 2 will be more slightly more powerful than the other but at the end of the day it's more about games than being able to say "I own the most powerful console ever" imo.

@KidBoruto yeah I get some people are just wordy, but brevity is a good thing. No need to use 1000 words when you can get the message across in 100, especially every post lol. Ah well to each their own

People are different. Some write long posts, some write short posts. Some are funny, some are serious. Some like Knack, some do not. I think that's a good thing, and no one needs to change.

@BAMozzy keep being you!

Disagree!!!! If someone doesnt like Knack they ABSOLUTELY need to change. Their life is completely out of balance if they can't appreciate that masterpiece,!! If Knack 3 isn't a launch title I'm not getting a PS5 at all!

@KidBoruto You are correct, this is just who I am. Written words are also open to more interpretation, misreading something because their is no accents or stress on certain words that the spoken word can utilise to change the whole context of a single sentence. Its much easier, for example, to denote whether a person is being sarcastic especially if you can also see their body language too. When written though, its impossible to denote the intention of writer.

@Kidfried Thank-you - I wouldn't change, don't think I could if I tried LOL

If there is a 'word/character' limit, I haven't yet reached that on this forum. I have on others though and had to try and find a way to edit them down, or 'if necessary', have to copy the later part and paste into the next box - spread it out over 2 blocks...

As far as I am concerned, People have the option to read, assuming people still have that talent of being able to read, even just skim through - although they may take something out of context because they didn't read it properly or just use the various methods to skip the text altogether. It takes me fractions of a second to go from the top of a page to the bottom - something you may need to do with some articles having over 200 comments. I also wonder if these people that complain, actually read lengthy reviews or just skip to the 'in conclusion' bit at the bottom??

Anyway, that's off topic

The point I was making is that Power does matter. I doubt people would buy a PS5 that's barely more powerful than the Pro with maybe a better CPU, a console that is targetting 1080/60 as a minimum but not as powerful as the X. People would be disappointed, worried if it will be up to the task in a few years down the line. People were complaining about the Switch power and the fact it was no where near the base XB1 but the amount of power became no issue because its good enough to run a lot of games portably.

The minor details of 'power' probably don't matter too much - as long as the games look and run well enough within a 'range' of specs - like between 900-1080p 30fps min and certain games 60fps - what they don't want is too little power that a game runs at 15-20fps.

I am sure that people don't care too much if the PS5 has 12Tflops or 14Tflops - not that they really know what that could translate to. Couldn't care too much if the CPU runs at 3Ghz or 3.2Ghz, won't care too much if its multi-threaded or single thread only. As long as the games look and run well enough, the power doesn't matter too much.

If the Xbox is 20% better, that may not matter to a PS fan who is going to buy a PS5, get to play PS exclusives and not overly bothered that multi-platform games look and run better on Xbox - at least they look and run good enough, better than the PS4/Pro offered too. That's fair enough, that's their decision and not a wrong decision either.

For some, those that care more about having the best looking, best performing multi-platform games, especially if 90%+ of their games are multi-platform releases. If that is Xbox, so be it - maybe a few years down the line, pick up a cheaper PS5 for the few exclusives they missed. For example, over the 5yrs+ of this generation, I have bought less than 3 exclusive games a year on either console. I don't own 15 exclusives on either Platform - not that I have purchased. Regardless which is 'best' I will end up with both because I don't want to miss out on those 2-3games a year that I need a specific console for.

Power doesn't matter too much to me in the fact I will buy both, both will be better than the existing consoles, both will be an upgrade etc As someone who has an interest in technology and specs, I will be interested in the more minor details - minor for some because they don't care as long as their games run.

In general though, its the 'power' and the way its built that will determine how well those games run and the way they look too. Some won't notice that the floor a few metres in front of their character drops to a low res texture version just as long as the game runs without drastically dropping frames or struggling with poor frame pacing - something power can solve - at least if you want to keep the game looking as sharp as it does. I do agree that Games matter more as without games at all, its just a lump of plastic with electronic bits underneath. Power matters more to the games and the developers who has to build and optimise down to the specs, whether the tech can actually realise their vision, stuck with the problem of balancing their vision, all the effort they put into the visual design etc with making the game run at an acceptable frame rate. Cut back on one and get the backlash of downgrading visuals or being too 'soft' and blurry or get the backlash that the game doesn't run smoothly, feels bad to play.

The PS5/XB2 will be looking to keep pace with PC's and the ability to offer a 'platform' to play the latest, greatest, biggest, most technically demanding titles at a 'reasonable' level both visually and frame rates in the 4k era, offer the full range of multi-media apps - inc 4k, HDR and maybe even 8k it seems - makes sense as every manufacturer of displays is certainly offering 8k so best to support that. Also must have some 'ray tracing' compatibility too because that's 'next gen'. Sony or MS won't want to release a device that's not 'powerful' enough so that they cannot offer some games that only work on PC's or worst, on the other console. I don't know how those hardcore Sony fans would feel if a developer comes out and says their game is coming to Xbox and PC because the PS5 isn't capable of running it, lacks the power to run it as the developer wants it to run? Not that I see that happening as I doubt Sony's PS5 will be lacking but that's why we have 'new' generations because the old generations lack the power to do the games justice - hence power matters...

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

Same!
I'm sure you were trying to help but they don't get it.
OT these rumours are silly because we all know there s a long time before launch and say there's 16gb memory, I'm hoping Sony up it for competition sake while keeping the price in check. We know what happened for ps4.

Ive said before and I'll say it again and no one can change my mind otherwise: I trust both sony and microsoft to deliver consoles that deliver beautiful games. I do not give a rat's butt about what the on paper specs are. I'm here for the games.

Don't trust anyone. Amy Henning is already talking about re focusing on non gamers content because of cloud gaming. That's what I was afraid cloud gaming and going for more casual audience would do.

Xbox Lockhart it’s going to be Microsoft next baseline console and I seriously doubt it’s going to be any more powerful than the PlayStation 5. Xbox Anaconda might be the connoisseurs choice but without exclusive games the won’t be situations where Xbox can do what PlayStation can’t.

Personally I would never buy the inferior version of a console but we can tell from PS4 slim outselling PS4 pro By 4 to 1 that the mass-market often goes the budget option rather than the best.

@Kidfried You realise I get notified every time you mention Knack, right?

No ps5 within the next 12 months according to Sony. Points to a fall/winter launch as expected

@redd214 that is disappointing. Was really hoping for March. :/

@WebHead as exciting as a new gen of consoles is I'm ok with another 18 months of the ps4 so not too disappointed personally. Will be right around 7 years at that point so seems like good timing.

@redd214 yep me too, don't understand what the rush is.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@WebHead It will be annoying that games like TLOU2 and Death Stranding will probably release cross platform. And seeing as I'll be buying a PS5 anyway, I might as well wait until then.

I'll probably hold off of buying new games from this fall until the PS5 drops.

Luckily for me I still have to play Persona 5, God of War, Niet and Sekiro.
