Ended on a high, not played the first one but it did look amazing so no doubt this one will be as good if not better. Prices are good, wonder how much Microsoft pricing the X at £450 made Sony price the disc version at the same? Likewise with the S pushing the digital version down a little more.
Still, nothing that’s going to sway me from a Series X and long term I still think that’s the best choice for me alongside my trusty Switch of course.
All those PS4 games being available for Plus subscribers to play on PS5 is a nice bonus, but is that covering for something else (such as limited BC with PS4 games? Limited PS5 launch games?) and do they have any additions when played on PS5?
Also surprising is that Europe is getting it later. Compared to how long we had to wait in previous generations that’s still night and day, but interesting that they can’t get it out worldwide sooner. Gives Microsoft a headset in Europe of over a week.
That was rather disappointing. Nothing particularly stood out as must have. The exclusives have done nothing for me either, maybe Spiderman, but depends on the length of the game. Have to say I've been disappointed in a lot of the PS4 exclusives I've played, gave up on God of War, Days Gone and Horizon, so sequels to two of those games do nothing for me. Also the prices for the disc and non-disc editions are too much for the lack of a must have game at launch.
Microsoft haven't impressed me either, though the Game Pass is probably their biggest selling point and gives it the edge over the PS5 at the moment. Think I'll be holding fire for a year and shall see what else comes out.
