@LtSarge Absolutely. Whilst I enjoyed those PS4 games, I can happily wait a few years for a price drop on the PS5 (and games!) before playing them.

Since I got my Series X, I've never felt like I had nothing to play. I'm catching up on all the Xbox One games I missed out on last gen and really enjoying some early access games like Grounded and Second Extinction. It's really awesome to be part of this ecosystem.

@IndoorHero I've never felt like I was hurting for something to play either. I had both consoles last generation, so that put me behind. I'm playing catch-up as well along with playing some current gen games (cross-gen, but close enough). Finally playing Gears 5 and that's great on the Series X (along with Forza Horizon 4 before they broke the game this week).

I'm not sure I'm going to bother getting another PS5 even down the road. I sold my first PS5. I kept the charging station and a few games just in case, but right now I'd say I'm sticking with one console this time around for the first time since before the PS2/Xbox generation like I've been wanting to do for a while.

I'm also more interested in what Xbox has on the horizon too. I'm sure at least some of them will be great, but a big reason why I switched was I was getting tired of playing what felt like the same games, and obviously that won't change much (at least not for a while) since a lot of their upcoming exclusives are sequels (or the usual 3rd person action/adventure game). In a couple of years at most, things should be really interesting on Xbox.

Off topic, but while I don't play multiplayer games much anymore, I'll add you on Xbox Live when I'm on tomorrow, as long as I don't forget. Unless you beat me to it of course.

I started playing Injustice 2 randomly, had it installed from a previous weekly quest and heard it was good. And let me tell you....it is. The game looks fantastic and the story is a kick ass superhero movie basically. Netherlem makes great games. It's not too long a campaign, I'm halfway done and I'm around 3 hours in? Definitely would recommend giving it a go.

@KilloWertz Yeah, there's a lot to catch up on isn't there! As I skipped the One entirely, I still have Gears 4 and 5, Halo 5, Quantum Break and the Forza Horizon games to try out! So far, I've only really got stuck into State of Decay 2 which I'm loving!

That's interesting, how come you sold your PS5? Did you swap it out for an XsX? I came so close to picking up a One S as there were so many games I wanted to try and I was feeling very nostalgic about my Xbox 360 days but in the end I decided to just wait for the Series X. I'll always have an affinity towards my PS4 and played some truly great games but like you said, for this gen I'm more excited for what Xbox has in store.

Yes, do it! I won't be on until later. I'm always on the lookout for people to try Second Extinction with!

I got the One roughly midway into the generation, but with the PS4 (and the Pro) being my main console that generation, I didn't really play a whole lot of Xbox until I got the One X. I haven't played any of the State of Decay games, but I played Gears 4 last gen and am finally playing 5 now like I already said. Quantum Break is on the list to play eventually since I loved Control and want to play more Remedy games.

I was disappointed in several things, like how the UI (in my opinion) is a huge step back from the PS4's except that it looks prettier. I was one of the people who loved the PS4's UI and didn't really think it needed a drastic overhaul, but it's missing features that made it the best UI around in my opinion like being able to see what your friends have been up to with What's New. Also, the way the trophies were presented was so nice and clean, but now they have them going horizontal once you try to look at each game's list since it seems like Sony is in love with their card system. Also, while the DualSense is solid, it's special features (haptics and adaptive triggers never really grabbed me like most outside of when I played Astro's Playroom. Another big problem was playing Miles Morales made me realize something. While it's a great game, and so are a lot of their exclusives, I felt deja vu while playing it. Too many of their exclusives are very similar now, especially since a lot are either sequels and/or 3rd person action/adventure games. No matter how good they are, it can still get somewhat boring, and I wanted something different.

I don't actually have that installed right now, but I'm still always up to add more people to my friends list anyways. Never hurts to have more people you "know" even if though I don't play multiplayer games much.

@Krzzystuff Yeah, the first one was pretty good, especially the story. It's rare to get a fighting game that has a great campaign story. Injustice 2 is on the still too long list of games I still have to play from last generation, but I will.

@KilloWertz the story of the game continues from the first i believe and it sure sounds like it was a great story.

@Krzzystuff I don't remember the ending of the first, but I'm assuming there's a "refresher" at the beginning of 2 then. That'll be good, and it was a great story. Quite possibly the best for any fighting game ever, regardless of where the bar has been set with the genre (low obviously).

@KilloWertz yeah it's like a proper movie script. They did a great job with it. I liked the MK story mode always but this is by far miles ahead of those.

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...

@Senua Twitter is just an awful place to be honest. Attacking THQ Nordic and the developers because they are unable to enjoy the console they have if their 'side' isn't 'winning' is just pathetic.

This sort of stuff makes me want to support this game even more now

Just copying and pasting what I posted on Push Square, but it still applies...

Situations like this are why people make the comments about the PlayStation fanbase being toxic. It is ridiculous that the developer is taking so much heat for this from the fanbase given that it's not totally their fault. Xbox has the superior overall handling of backwards compatibility, so situations like this aren't totally surprising, but it's the company's fault. Very sad that THQ Nordic had to issue a statement on Twitter defending the developers last night.

Social Media is like 1% useful and 99% negative. We should go back in time and prevent it from ever becoming a thing. That said I'm glad that THQ did state it's a hardware issue and put more pressure on Sony to not suck so much big floppy donky D. The PS5 semi pro will be out shortly and should bridge the gap a bit. They clearly got arrogant and got caught by surprise this gen.

Just enjoy your games folks. My enjoyment of a game isn't affected by the fact that someone has a better TV and can use 120 fps. Don't compare yourself to others so much. Too many fake folks out in the world.

Also eat your veggies.

@KilloWertz if people just ate enough carrots then 1080P would look amazing...or would it look worse? Say hi to your mom son... err...I mean complete stranger!

An interesting vid about Series X drm from MVG

I watched that video this morning, and while internet connection is very much used for DRM, I do believe that safeguarding a platform from piracy can be a priority. It's not just Microsoft protecting their investment, but of those selling under their platform.

For backwards compat titles that use the disc as a licence, is a no brainer in making sure a game is not spread in an "install and pass along" swap meet ecosystem.

Likewise with more recent physical titles, players are buying into the licence, rather than a fully patched experience, which further incentivises digital.

With internet being such a large part of gaming, it would be safe to adjust expectations along with the technology.

While GoG is a very nice exception (not the rule), they are a niche market that leans on being free from DRM.

In short, if someone is concerned with online DRM, or they have sub-par connections, they have options. If they are wanting an option without the internet, will be very limited.
