@BAMozzy That is just the dev kit for the ps5. They have not revealed the final design for the ps5 yet. The name and look of a console may not matter to the likes of us but it will to the general consumer. These are the people that will make up the bulk of console sales.

The ps4 pro is ugly, but it is a niche product. Not the the main console of the next generation from one of the main console manufactures. But i think that is an awful name and design

It matters not to me personally as I will be getting a ps5 unless Sony does something disastrous. Like having the console designed like a portable air conditioning unit. 😂

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

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@redd214 I got this from another site.

"It’s also now confirmed that Halo Infinite will be a cross-gen release, so it’ll be out on both Xbox One X and Xbox Series X. Which are two completely different formats from different generations of hardware. Do you see how silly and confusing that looks when you write it out like that, Microsoft? Do you see?!"

And I see the design is being poked fun at across the internet. Not a good look. It will look good as a table stand to put my PS5 on.

@JohnnyShoulder I would say writing it out like that actually is less confusing lol. The fact that people on the internet are making fun of something registers so low on my "do I care" meter it's barely worth talking about. I won't be getting one regardless so if people are poking fun at it well then more power to them

Hopefully the ps5 is such a striking design that people assume it was hand crafted by Michaelangelo himself and the gawk, mouths wide open at its stunning beauty /s

Whatever floats people's boats but imo it's as silly as my wife getting upset that our washing machine is a shade darker gray than the dryer lol.

@JohnnyShoulder I know its just a Dev Kit but that's still UGLY. We don't know IF any design elements will be carried through to the final product either. The PS4 Pro is ugly but so is the PS4 Slim which cannot be described as 'Niche' like the Pro. The Slim replaced the original design and has been in production now longer than the first PS4. The first PS4 wasn't great either with its ridiculous angles but regardless of whether you (or I) think they are aesthetically displeasing, we bought the console more because of the games that this plastic box of hardware enabled us to play.

The Monolith (for want of a better description) is completely inoffensive and, as many have said, resembles other products people are more than happy to have in their home - speakers, Alexa etc and it can also be placed horizontally. As I said, I couldn't really care less as long as it fits on my shelf, doesn't look out of place and plays the games I want to play. It won't be the first console with a name that doesn't make sense or be predictably boring but whether its the last, we will have to see.

I know some people are completely stupid but I doubt the 'general consumer' will be the ones looking to buy in the first 6months or so. They are the ones more likely to stick with what they have and by which time, will have some idea of what console they wish to buy. If the games and service they want happens to be MS's I can't see them refusing to buy the Xbox 'Series X' just because it looks like something they already have in their house or because the name doesn't follow a conventional 1, 2, 3, 4...

What matters most is the controller and the games. People bought the Wii (stupid Name) because of the games and its innovative motion controllers. People have bought the PS4 Slim/Pro despite its ugly design because of the games those consoles enabled them to play.

Even if PS5 looks like the Dev Kit or worse, people will buy it regardless because of the games from Sony Studio's. Whether they are 'stupid' or not, the general consumer will still buy a PS5 if it offers the games they want to play because that is far more important than the look of the console. No doubt, anyone who doesn't like the design(s) of the next gen machines will whinge about it on the internet but I doubt it will stop them buying IF the console has the games they want to play!!!

January's 2020 Games with Gold lineup for Xbox One includes: Styx: Shards of Darkness and Batman: The Telltale Series. For Xbox 360 owners (and through Xbox One backward compatibility), January kicks off with Tekken 6, followed by LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy.

Could be worse....

....Could be a LOT better too!!!

@BAMozzy I might be mistaken but didn't they give out Lego Stars the Complete Series, which is Lego Star Wars 1 and 2 in one game with some extras for free a few years ago? If so it makes Lego Star Wars II kind of redundant.

I have Styx on PS4 which is ok if you like stealth games and I have Batman on PS4 as well which I beat awhile ago. Tekken 6 is ok and actually the only Tekken game I don't own having traded in a few years ago. But yeah could have been better but could have been worst.

Xbox Series X will be using a NVMe SSD. Which is the fastest technology currently in the PC space.

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-xbox-s...

Hopefully it’s an indication that the next generation consoles will use generic technology that is easily upgradable. Rather than forcing us to rely on the initial capacity or proprietary memory cards.

@Tasuki I am sure they gave Lego Star Wars - the Complete series (obviously excludes episodes 7-9) but eventually, they will run out of options as there is only a relatively small pool of games to offer that are also Backwards Compatible. It is a 'new' game - in that it hasn't been offered before - even if it does have some of the content of the other title offered.

I have never liked the TellTale games and don't like Fighting games either so not really a great month for me at all. I have yet to play a Styx game too....

So I decided to play some Rainbow Six Vegas 2 on my Xbox 360 today and I noticed that my right control stick for controlling the camera has become unresponsive. Whenever I want to look up or down, or diagonally, the camera moves incredibly slow or very jaggedly. Have you guys encountered any issues like this with your 360 controller or perhaps other controllers in general and know of any solutions on how to fix this or at least make it better?

KratosMD

BAMozzy

@KratosMD I had some issues with the left thumbsticks but never the right - mostly from pressing down to sprint and moving in directions. I would try try blowing air through it or maybe spray some deoxit into it but you may want to open it up if spraying 'liquid contact cleaner' into the controller.

Its probably a mix of dust (inc plastic from the wear and tear on the thumbsticks for example) and skin/grease as well some oxidation etc of the metals inside. Blowing air - you can buy a spray can of compressed air to blow in - don't blow in your breath as that has moisture in it - may help blow the dust out if its not 'stuck'. If you do open it up, you may find other causes and potentially easier to 'fix' as well.

@BAMozzy I'd rather not open up my controller as I've had extremely bad luck in the past, with some buttons stop working altogether, so I'd rather avoid that. However, I'll definitely go out and buy a spray can of compressed air and at least try and see if I can fix this issue that way.

I did realise now that I pretty much have all my controllers out in the open and a lot of them don't get used for a long time, which leads to a lot of dust gathering up on them. I should probably start putting most of them away in order to prevent dust from reaching them.

Thanks for the help!

KratosMD

BAMozzy

@KratosMD No probs and good luck...

Its not just the dust from air though as you will also get plastic dust from wear and grease/skin from you using it. You also get some oxidation and combined with dust and grease, it can affect the switches inside and the contact. If you can't get it working with a blast of air, then really you may need to take it apart or look to replace. Deoxit spray is also very good as it dissolves oxidation, improves the contact and lubricates/adds a protective film - but you also need to ensure it can 'flush' out too.

@KratosMD A can of WD-40 usually sorts anything out.

Joke, please don’t use WD-40 lol seriously though I’m the same with it comes to dismantling the controller, I did it once with one of my kid’s when the left trigger was playing up, dismantled it and I just made it worse as it stopped working all together.

I’d take BAMozzy‘s suggestions but even they fail then try dismantling as a last resort before buying a new controller.

@BAMozzy @MaccaMUFC So I got a spray can of compressed air (never used one of these before) and used it on the control stick and it works much better now! In fact, it actually responds faster than ever with no jaggedness, it's absolutely incredible! Thanks a lot for the help you guys. Been playing a lot more on my 360 lately thanks to this fix.
