@NEStalgia I still remember when I suggested that they should cut down the roster to about 30, and focus on new characters instead of the same old ones... *shivers...

@EvilLucario I think at the least Sony realizes that's why PS4 did so well....which is why this time they feel the need to control content. That combined with their hubris in hardware and their inexplicable fixation on competing against streaming may come back to bite them.

I bought a launch day PS4. I didn't actually USE the console after "new toy month" for at least 2-3 years. It's got more use in the past year than in all the years before it! No way I'd buy a launch PS5. Switch on the other hand was day 1.

After MS's implosion at launch I was all aboard the Sony hype train and mocking MS. But I have to say starting with 1S and Phil's rise they've turned the ship around, and Spencer has brought a really chill vibe to gaming that's been missing. It's very laid back, "whatever", Banjo in Smash, Sure! Want Minecraft? How about Lucky. We'll just show other consoles at our show...no biggie... they just have this easy going foil against Sony's corporate "objective driven market exploitation" strategy they wear on their sleeve. If they both play their roles into the next launch I can see a mass exodus back to 360 era. Then MS will get arrogant again and Sony will claw back fans. (And steal credit cards again....)

The thing about Smash is that you can only play the "EVERYONE IS HERE!!!" card once. Nintendo doubled down on the scope creep with Ultimate, and it worked beautifully, but where do you go from there?

Personally, all I want from Smash Ultimate now besides more substantive gameplay modes like Smash Run is a full-on encyclopedia that chronicles every single video game character and reference in the game.

@Ralizah I'd be interested in Detroit: Become Human if I...hadn't already watched the entire thing on Youtube one day. Also if it didn't come with Heavy Rain. That's like getting a Mercedes sedan that comes with a free skunk.

@CanisWolfred Hey, skunks make for good pets!

@Octane Pokemon's in the same position that you suggested for Smash, plenty of people's favourite Pokemon will end up being the next pre-Ultimate Pichu (get cut for a few games).

I do wonder, with Sony's current approach to being the place for AAA titles and potentially having a $600 PS5...

Do you reckon they will continue to market PS4 as a budget platform for a long as possible, treating PS5 as a high-end alternative for enthusiasts?

We already had a lag this gen where PS3 and 360 were still being supported well into the next generation. With ever diminishing returns on new hardware, it seems the urge to upgrade can only get smaller. Maybe Sony knows something we don't, and expects PS4 to remain dominant over PS5 for a good while, with the latter only getting the most technically ambitious titles?

@Buizel I don't think so, but they will definitely push $150-200 PS4 bundles during next year's holiday.

$600 is way too much for the PS5 though. I reckon it's going to be $399, or $499 at most.

Ralizah

$399 is way too cheap for the rumored tech, and $599... well, I guess we'll see how arrogant Sony really is.

My money is still on $499.

$599 would just lead to a repeat of E3 2006.

This. And that's why it won't happen.

My bet is $€500 for both Scarlett and PS5 like Xbox One X.

NEStalgia

$500 is more sane, but I'm still unconvinced that's a viable price point to move a mass market console unless they do as @Buizel says and really make it a premium outlier with PS4 still running full speed.

@CanisWolfred I dunno, over in the Pokemon thread people seem eager for extra animals included just for the sake of it. That may help sell the Mercedes there.

@redd214 But what if Nintendo releases an 8K 120fps Switch Pro with 5 TB SD card included first, huh? HUH?

If anyone is in the market for one, the Playstation Classic is down to $25 just about everywhere (US). Still haven't even opened mine lol.

Oh my, it's been over a week since the last post here (Looks like Thanos has successfully made Xbox the "other" console of choice for NL readers, as it's threads have been much more active as of late, lol).

Anyhow I finished up Knack the other day (put my full impressions in the "Games You Recently Beat?" thread), which was pretty pedestrian, but not the trainwreck I was almost expecting it to be based on it's reputation. I'd be interested in trying out the sequel in the future.

I just started up Batman: Return to Arkham Asylum tonight (got the Return to Arkham collection & Gravity Rush Remastered for under $18 in the current "Retro Sale"). Never played any of the Batman games before, but Asylum is off to a good start. The Metroid influence is obvious in terms of map design, and the combat is similar enough to Spider-Man that I've picked it right up.

I mean, I've still been playing games on the PS4 regularly...I really outta play Arkham Assylum again, I remember having a great time with that. City was already out by then, so I think I got distracted by the shiny new thing at the time.

I'm juggling God of War 2018 and Dark Souls II right now. Playing GoW 2018 on Give Me A Challenge and Dark Souls II with Company of Champions (which is hard mode).

They're both ok. Dark Souls II has a ton of problems but I'm still enjoying it. GoW is decent but combat doesn't feel as good as Dark Souls 1 or Bloodborne imo. Will need to play more of it though.
