Well, see you next year, A Plague Tale: Requiem. Couldn't be coming out at a much worse time than that. As long as games don't get delayed, there will be several games coming out between September and the end of the year. As much as I enjoyed most of the original, I already have my final quarter of the year pretty well laid out. Oh well. It'll give me something good to play at some point next year when things probably die down again.

My new and improved eFootball team. It’s shaping up quite nicely now even if I mostly just play against the AI. Feels a bit like Master League that way. Plus Salah in a Celtic strip which just looks wrong!

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Lately, I've been getting the urge to buy a new system and PS5 is honestly looking very compelling. It's been such a long time since I experienced the sensation of playing on a new console and I've missed that. It also helps that I've gotten a job now so I can actually afford a PS5, even if it costs €800 here. That's still a lot of money though, and there's still not enough reasons to buy a PS5 now. Games are still being released on PS4 as well and most of them run well even on base PS4. There aren't that many PS5 exclusives but 2023 is looking to be a year when we'll start to get compelling exclusives worth buying a new system for, such as Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. Not to mention other current-gen exclusives, like Resident Evil 4 Remake and Dead Space Remake. At the same time though, the PS5 will be three years old next year and it's been rumoured that a PS5 Pro will be released soon. So I can't help but feel that I'd rather wait another year and see what the situation will be like then.

What I'm sure of right now is that I'm leaning more towards getting a PS5 as my first current-gen system. 2022 will be an absolutely abysmal year for Xbox considering so many games have been delayed and they're taking way too long to come out with new games. While I was very hyped for Xbox's future a couple of years ago, all that hype has now evaporated due to Microsoft's incompetence of managing their studios. Game Pass and all the acquisitions were exciting, but if there aren't any first-party titles coming anytime soon then there's no point in being excited. Furthermore, thanks to Cloud Gaming, I don't even need to own a Series X/S to play next-gen titles. I can just play them on my Xbox One and they run well.

And with the revamped PS+ service, there are actually more affordable options for gaming on PS5 now.

So yeah, PS5 is definitely looking more compelling right now but I still don't feel an urgency in buying a current-gen system in general because there are very few reasons to get one as of this moment. But who knows, maybe I'll cave in and get one soon if I'm feeling impatient.

@LtSarge
Me and the rest of the current generation will be here to greet you with a warm welcome whenever you arrive.

@LtSarge The new PS+ tiers also make it a reasonable decision to keep waiting as some of the exclusives are already on there.

Despite the lack of exclusives, I’m really glad I upgraded from my base PS4 as it’s so much quieter and quicker if nothing else.

@LtSarge Maybe it's a good thing you still can't walk in and buy a PS5 anytime you want. You'd probably be in the store a good hour or two wavering back and forth and then ultimately walking out with nothing. Rinse and repeat a couple more times until you'd actually walk out with one.

@LtSarge I wouldn’t give up on Xbox and Gamepass just yet bud, yeah it’s been a tough year as far as big exclusive games but with the moves that they’ve made over the last 5 years it has to happen for them eventually.

@LtSarge It is a good time to get PS5 with like you said the revamped PS+ and games like Returnal, Demon’s Souls, Death Stranding, Ghosts of Tsushima, Assassin's Creed Valhalla and the Spider-Man games on the service.

Sony has a fair few games in the works also, most we have not heard about either, so next year is gonna be stacked for both consoles.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@Thrillho That's a good point. I've mentioned this before but I'm not quite convinced if I'm going to like Returnal or not. So the fact that I can try that game out, among others, through PS+ Extra is really nice.

Out of curiosity, since your previous PS console was a base PS4, do you have a 4K TV or just a regular HD TV? Because I still use an HD TV and I was wondering if you still can have great gaming experiences on PS5 despite having an outdated TV.

@KilloWertz Haha, that's a good point. I'm actually doing that right now but with online stores. Constantly visiting the same website over and over but never buying the system.

The online store I visit gets a new shipment of PS5s once a month, so I'm constantly reminded by it. The price point is what's stopped me every time though. If a PS5 ever costs €500 or under, I'd probably buy one instantly. My PS4 is nearing 10 years and at this point a new PS system would be appropriate.

@colonelkilgore I haven't given up on them but it's really sour being an Xbox fan right now as you have very little to look forward to. Once the first-party titles arrive, I'll start using my Xbox more but right now it's been collecting dust for months as my PS4 has been receiving much more attention.

There's a lot of good stuff on the horizon for Xbox but ultimately we are going to have to wait for quite some time for that to arrive.

@JohnnyShoulder I actually have most of those games on PS4 already. I think it's nice that you can upgrade them to the PS5 versions for free, so I might save them for when I inevitably get a PS5 and play them there. But it's still nice that there are so many games like that on PS+. I'll have to give it a try for myself soon and see what it's like.

Yep, definitely looking forward to 2023 a lot right now. I feel like 2022 is going to be the PS4's "last" year and after that we'll start seeing more current-gen exclusives, which would be a good time for a transition. So I think next year is definitely going to be the tipping point for me in terms of deciding whether to get a PS5.

@LtSarge I have an eight year old Sony Bravia HDTV. Even if I had a 4K one, I think I’d still choose the frame rate option for games as 60fps feels so much better to play with.

Thrillho

KilloWertz

@LtSarge Seriously, buy one whenever you feel it's the right time. If it ends up being an impulse buy, then I guess that was the right time.

Like @Thrillho said, even without 4K, it's worth it for 60 FPS alone. While it would be nice if more games didn't sacrifice as much resolution for the 60 FPS (like Guardians of the Galaxy), that would obviously be irrelevant for you right now.

I've also soured on Xbox for the time being. We obviously got into a heated argument last year about the future of Xbox and all that, but I'll admit I was wrong for the most part. Obviously the future is still bright, but I know I'm tired of waiting. The lack of more of their AAA exclusives like Hellblade 2, Avowed, or even announcing Gears 6 at their showcase was pretty much the last straw for me. Those games shouldn't be as far out as they likely still are. Technically I want to just be a one console gamer for the most part this gen anyways, but based on recent showcases and the immediate future, that will definitely be the PS5 and not the Series X.

@LtSarge Ultimately if you want to continue playing modern games you’re going to have to upgrade to the new generation of consoles in the next couple of years.

In terms of a pro it’s just going to be a graphical upgrade and almost certainly a less significant one than the difference between PS4 pro and PS5. If you’re having difficulty justifying the PS5 on the upgrade for cross gen games then the PS5 pro almost certainly isn’t for you.

Ryall

LtSarge

@Thrillho @KilloWertz Sounds good to me, I look forward to experiencing better performance on PS5.

@KilloWertz Yeah I also wanted to go with one console this generation but I don't think that will happen. Xbox is just making too many shock waves across the industry to ignore them. So even though I'll most likely get a PS5 first, I'll probably get a Series X in the future as well. But that's when Xbox actually puts out compelling first-party content.

@Ryall Well, I'll just have to see if the PS5 Pro is for me or not when it actually gets announced.

Ryall

@LtSarge It’s always hard to say with unannounced products that may or may not come out. What are your expectations for the PS5 pro?

I booted my PS5 up this morning, started playing Horizon, and about 15 minutes in, the console makes a brief high pitched scream, the screen turns blue, then black, then fades out, and the orange light on the console slowly fades off. It wouldn't turn back on. Went through self help online, then called tech support. Apparently a rare, but known issue, and I could send it away to get fixed with no timetable on the return.

But, I only bought it ten days ago, so I checked with my local Target and luckily they had three in stock. So, I bought another one, and returned the first one, and I'm now setting up PS5 #2. Hopefully my luck is better with this one! I feel both cursed and blessed at the same time.

I do think that I'm going to be very cautious with rest mode now, after reading that it can be a factor.

@Unlucky13 oh wow you really are unlucky. At first it took you ages to get one and then you have this bad luck. Happy for you you get a replacement so fast then. Let's hope you get more lucky with nr 2
