Seriously considering the black Friday PS4 bundle for $199. Comes with 3 solid games. I haven't had a Sony console since the original in the 90's.

@linq do it! You're getting 3 masterpieces as well! I'm not personally a fan of the Last of Us but it's very highly regarded. The other 2 are great as well, God of War is the game of the generation in my opinion. You won't be disappointed!!

Yeah, the exclusives on the PS4 look amazing. I also want to get all of the soulsborne games. I think Bestbuy advertised Bloodborne for $10. I'm pretty sure that one will never get ported to other systems.

@linq yeah I believe all the big exclusives will be 10 bucks. Also most of the big guys (Target, Bestbuy, Walmart etc) are starting their sales tomorrow if you want to avoid the rush on Friday.

Also for you or anyone else looking to plan out your shopping, he's a hand spreadsheet from cheapassgamer

If you haven't jumped in yet, now looks to be the time to get into PSVR.

There are two bundles releasing this Black Friday week, and I believe they're both $199.

The first comes with Blood & Truth (a highly reviewed exclusive FPS), Everybody's Golf VR (exclusive golf game that I believe scored well too), and a pair of Move controllers.

The second comes with Astro Bot: Rescue Mission (highly reviewed exclusive platformer, which I can confirm is fantastic), Resident Evil VII (it's fully VR compatible), Skyrim VR, Everybody's Golf VR, and Playstation VR Worlds (exclusive minigame compilation).

It's also been confirmed that the headset will be compatible with PS5.

Don't forget the next gen consoles are gonna be backwards compatible. Maybe just save the money and get a PS5.

@Dezzy
I was considering this as well but the PS5 is going to be 2.5X the price (if the price leak is accurate). And the PS4 is completely new to me so it's like a brand new console with a library of games that are ready to go. To be honest, I mainly wanted to have a way to play all the Soulsborne games. I might pick up a PS5 after the price comes down. $500 is a lot for a console. You can build a decent PC for that. Whereas $200 for a console and 3 epic games is just too good to pass up. But I am stoked that the PS5 will be backwards compatible so that these PS4 games will not be obsolete if and when I do move to the next gen.

I went ahead and ordered the PS4 bundle ($199) and Bloodborne ($10) this morning. The total was less than I paid for the Switch Lite + 1 game. Not a bad deal for a console + 4 games!

@redd214 Thanks for that link. I will definitely be checking that out before doing any more shopping.

@linq you're welcome! Most sales are live now so get to shopping! I've been on it all morning scooping up deals

Great stuff. Have you not played any of the soulsborne games then?

@Dezzy Only Dark Souls: Remastered on Switch. Didn't expect that game to hook me like it did. I'm kicking myself for selling my Xbox 360 back in the day when I could've been playing these games when they came out.

There are at least a dozen other games on PS4 like God of War that I'm pretty sure I will like too. The backlog just grew tremendously.

@linq

Nice, you're in for an absolute treat then. Make sure you get the DLC for Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 before you start. They contain some of the best moments in each game (there are GOTY retail versions that contain the DLC on disc)

And you can play them all in any order because they're all completely unrelated, but if I were you I'd do Bloodborne or Sekiro first, because they both focus on different battle mechanics than the Dark Souls games do, so it's good to do them earlier because if you Dark Souls 2 and 3 first, you'll get so used to that battle style that it'll be harder to switch to something different.

Definitely do Dark Souls 2 last though, pretty much everyone agrees it's the worst. I'd go Bloodborne->Dark Souls 3->Sekiro->Dark Souls 2

@Dezzy Awesome advice, thank you. Looks like the PlayStation Hits version of Bloodborne I got doesn’t include the DLC. I’ll have to get that online then before I start.

The Souls Trilogy set looks like it has all the DLC and they also have The Fire Fades edition and Scholar of the First Sin which are complete. Seems like the complete version of Bloodborne is a little harder to find.

I just bought Far Cry 5 from the PSN Black Friday sale. Ooh my god, I regret it so much. The perk system, awful writing, generic cultists and those forced "cull the herd" story missions have made me regret this purchase. To be perfectly honest I should've played 4 again.

I don't enjoy suffering alone. However, I don't mind making others suffer alone.

I'm reading PTSD Radio and In/Spectre.

I am playing through Sniper Elite 3(DLC as well) and Dishonored 2.

@linq

The DLC in Bloodborne fits in towards the end of the game, so you can always start the game as soon as you get it, and then wait and see if the DLC ends up being in one of the Christmas sales.

@linq I agree PS5 sounds too expensive but " You can build a decent PC for that.".....a good video card alone is going to run $300 minimum and that's at the low-mid-end range.

@NEStalgia Your definition of "decent PC" is different than mine, I guess. This rig will run anything I'm interested in playing at 1080p https://youtu.be/p9daTy901MA

I'm still excited about the power of the PS5 and the potential there. But I am more interested in quality games than super duper 4K graphics. I grew up with the NES and don't mind seeing a few pixels or rough edges as long as the gameplay is good.

A PC built for $500 is almost definitely going to be less powerful than the PS5, I would guess.

More powerful but a PC can do much more than play games. But yeah $500 is better than $1500 for a high end gaming PC.

For me, games sell consoles. I didn't get a Switch just to have something more powerful than the 3DS. I got it because of all the great exclusives and ports. Same with the PS4. In a couple years the PS5 will have a price drop and there will be a larger selection of games by then.

@linq

Sure, but that's partly a power issue.

Breath of the Wild wouldn't run on a 3DS. So you needed a more powerful console to play such an advanced game.
