I'm pretty sure GTAV will return to the top of the UK charts when it releases on next gen.

@JaxonH Nothing to apologize for. I've been asking why Nintendo doesn't want more of my money for years now. I'm that one weirdo who, among a sea of piracy devices and access to literally any rom I could want - am still asking Nintendo to let me buy retro content on an official platform...

That's the thing, there are a lot of things Nintendo really could do that seem at least on the surface to be easy things to make more money, things that people want to spend money on, and Nintendo just... doesn't.

@AndyD That's the first I've heard of it too.

@rallydefault I love horror movies, but cant play many horror games, outside of re.. mostly because I like having a weapon to defend myself. This one looks cool though as I'm a huge fan of original monster movies

I actually thought it was a pretty great show myself. Not so much for the console because we’ve just reached such advanced graphics at this point that it’s like, normal and not much difference. I mean, you can tell there’s a difference, but not all that much. I don’t think I’m going to be excited for a graphical leap again until hybrid gaming makes the jump to roughly PS4-level graphics. That’s going to be really exciting just because most games will run properly and look good at that point. And I think pretty much any video game going forward could be made to run on hardware of that power.

What was exciting was Horizon 2. And I am not really a fan of the first game (though I will be giving it another shot on Steam where I can play with Gyro) but the new one definitely looked really cool. At least, graphically, anyways. Very beautiful looking game. I’ve always loved the premise and setting, even of the first one. But it kills my excitement thinking I would have to play it without gyro after playing the first one with it... and therein lies my problem with the console in general. If they really want to take steps forward they need to do more than just add power. The SSD is good (frankly I’d be concerned if they didn’t switch to SSD’s by this point given the fact they’ve been around for 10 years now), and credit where credit is due because that was definitely a huge stride, but they gotta embrace a better control scheme beyond the same dual analog we’ve been using since the turn of the millennium. Having a console that doesn’t utilize it just feels too regressive, no matter how photorealistic the graphics look.

Aside from that, the Spider-Man looked good. Ratchet and Clank looked good- and that’s saying something because I thought the last one looked good and then didn’t really enjoy playing it all that much. But even despite that I still think this one looks interesting. So they had to of done something right. And Demons Souls, even though I know I’ll probably never play it, looks solid. I know my brother loves his Souls games so at least he’ll be happy.

The Resident Evil looked like a return to form (for me at least) but that’s gonna be a Steam purchase with gyro aiming. All the big third party games too much for Switch to handle will be. Don’t care if they buy out their timed exclusivity- I’ll wait . I’m never falling for that again. Speaking of which, Little devil inside was a game I backed on Kickstarter for Wii U, and have waited 5 years for it, And now I see Sony paid them for timed exclusivity... as per usual. Screwing the backers in the process. Not that the devs aren’t to blame too, but Sony is no better than Epic Games nowadays. This has been their thing for years, and I have no love for them because of it.

@JaxonH Honestly, I'd be more excited if it wasn't for the fact that half the titles were multiplatform, and the rest don't even have a release YEAR yet. Like, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet and Clank (which looks like a return to form) are aaaalmost enough to convince me. But not quite. And then there's no sign of any more exclusives til probably holiday 2021 at the earliest if they aren't announcing 2021 release years. I probably won't get it til the inevitable mid-console life revision which will be around when they'll start releasing games en mass again.

But I will say, it was a super fun presentation to watch at least.

Same. Mid gen refresh is where I jump in. Grab the 3-4 actual permanent exclusive titles I feel are must haves and they’ll be $20 by then (and hopefully the console doesn’t look like a Gordita Crunch by that point too... jus sayin, every time I look at it I see a Beef Surpreme Chalupa). Xbox... unless they change their PC cross release policy, will be a skip.

I think the jump in graphics has typically been what excites people with new generations (that and the occasional revolution in design like Switch). And that jump has just diminished so much. It’s not that the games don’t look dropdead gorgeous, it’s just that they already looked dropdead gorgeous. So it doesn’t feel exciting from a hardware perspective. Only exciting from a “new games” perspective.

What I’m excited for is that PC Gaming show on Saturday. This will be my first real showcase as a serious PC gamer where I’m actually engaged and care enough to follow what’s coming.

@JaxonH For me backwards compatibility is the big thing. My XB1 has survived 5 years so far so it's due an upgrade soon (I saw something about hard drives generally lasting around 5 years). If Series X has full backwards compatibility with my library I'll upgrade to that but if not I'll wait until my XB1 dies (unlike Switch, all you lose by not replacing XB1 in time is the time spent redownloading games and DLC).

So just found out about Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX, which is coming to Switch. Surprised NL hasn't covered it yet. Same with Demon Turf which looks utterly bizarre but kinda fun. Spellbreak... I dunno about. Could be fun but...

XIII is looking good, though it's hard to say how much it's changed. Samurai Jack looks far better than it's debut, with plenty of gameplay variety. Platforming, sidescrolling, beat em up, a bunch of weapon types, varied environments... definitely looking like a winner.

All I have to say is i forgot how great sunset riders is. I only played the snes version as a kid but the arcade version seems pretty close. Anyone else grab it?

@Grumblevolcano
If I had a large library invested I’d probably feel Series X is a necessity. But since I never owned an Xbox before until the X1X, I really don’t have anything to carry forward. And most of those games are on other platforms now anyways, especially PC. I’m not sure there’s many OG Xbox games I feel are critical, but many are on GC and ergo, Dolphin. There’s a ton of 360 games I’m interested in but, most of the good ones got remastered by now and are on PC or Switch or both. There’s some Halo/Gears games not on Steam like Halo 5 and Gears Ultimate and Gears 4, but I can’t go back to playing those without Gyro now anyways, so it feels like a moot point.

Not really sure what you mean when you say “unlike Switch, all you lose”. Since you can re-download your games there as well. Not sure I get the contrast you’re making between the two.

@JaxonH If your Switch breaks you also lose some save data like Splatoon 2, Pokemon, Animal Crossing (the games that don't support cloud saves) while you lose no save data if a XB1 breaks.

@JaxonH I can't wait to see the difference once PSVR2 is out; I think that one is going to be very noticeable.

@JaxonH
Yea, the graphics "upgrade" was... minimal, at best. You could kind of see some of the lighting/shadows ray tracing stuff in a few of the cinematics. But we also have to remember we were watching a stream/video, so you can't really get the full graphical fidelity you'll see what playing natively.

Horizon 2 will definitely be a purchase if I get a PS5, and probably the Ratchet game. Nothing else really grabbed me. I'm not a racing game fan or a horror fan. That stray cat game looked kind of interesting, I guess. I've already done everything I want to do in GTA5, so not a huge deal there. Spider Man 2 is fine, but I'm just so burnt out on the open-world stuff.

SSD in these new consoles is gonna be so nice. For console players it'll be a world of difference to finally have that tech.

But honestly the whole show didn't do anything. I'm just right back to waiting for Nintendo games lol

About that ......
"Marvel's Spider-man: Miles Morales was taken by many to be a full sequel to Insomniac's first Spider-man game, but it is in fact "an expansion and an enhancement to the previous game."
Speaking to The Telegraph (and spotted by VGC), Sony's VP head of European Business, Simon Rutter explained: "I guess you could call it an expansion and an enhancement to the previous game. There’s a substantial Miles Morales component – which is the expansion element – but also within the game as well there’s been major enhancements to the game and the game engine, obviously deploying some of the major PlayStation 5 technology and features.”

@BruceCM That is also good to hear! I doubt that they will cover the after credits scenes of the first game in "Miles Morales". That should be left for Spider-Man 2

@BruceCM
That's good to know. So it's really just an expansion? Is it going to be a stand-alone release or just an add-on download?

rallydefault

link3710

@rallydefault It'll almost certainly be standalone, like Infamous First Light or Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, since they're changing the underlying engine to take advantage of PS5 power.

@DarthNocturnal Whoops!

BruceCM

I expect all the details will be covered before release, @rallydefault ..... If I see more about it, I'll share it here EDIT: they've shared a Tweet in the PS Fan thread that says it is a standalone game
