Hope I cab hold out for a revision... Scraped together cheap gift cards to eventually get an XBox for like 350 instead of 500 and hope it and my PS4 will carry me until a slim version arrives... Honestly don’t expect anything from Nintendo anymore...

No reason why it shouldn’t I think. Game lineup is still pretty slim right now but nice to have it and it’ll probably be the push I needed to get into gaming again.

You just have to get rid of girlfriends, other hobbies and too much of a career that are slowing you down

Haha last one's the problem right now, it affects the other two as much as gaming. :lol:

State of play...

Very disappointing...

From the looks of it, there‘s no reason to get a PS5 before 2022 unless you really want an upgrade and/or have a great TV...

Haven’t watched it but checked twitter after your post. FF7R Yuffie DLC sounds fun though annoying that they’re focusing on that rather than releasing the next episode.

Free Oddworld in April also sounds great.

Any news on Horizon? It’s practically the only reason I’m delighted I have my console ready.

Nope nothing... God of War neither - but I‘d bet a million dollars by now it won’t release in 2021... HFW likely too IMHO...

Still need to play GoW anyway... I got it for free as part of the PS+ Collection on PS5 so I’ll probably get round to it soon enough.

Yeah, pretty disappointing. I'm still planning on upgrading at some point (I hear that PS4 games on PS5 is niiiiice), but so far there hasn't really been any one thing that makes it feel like a must-upgrade at the moment (not that I could find one, anyways...)

Thing is, there have been a few rendered trailers for HFW and a logo for GoW... NO GAMEPLAY... It HAD to be foreseeable a year ago they could never release in 2021... I think that‘s deception of potential customers... Also, I don‘t get how EVERY TIME a new cycle starts, there are so few real reasons to buy a console... MS is even more pathetic (still don’t see the reason for the gamepass...) - it should be a little easier to release 2-3 good games for a new console... Gosh...
All the more reason to wait for a cheaper revision... Smaller games like Oddworld are still a good fit for my PS4 and I expect a revision around 2023...

If you have the right tv/monitor. I haven’t noticed much difference between the PS5 version of AC Valhalla and any other PS4 game I played, but my tv is old. Luckily I’m going to change it soon.

By old I mean some 15 years. I think it’s time for an upgrade haha.

Probably at the time it cost more than a pretty good tv today too. They’ve become quite cheaper these days.
