"Upcoming Next Gen Systems"


  

          

This post isn't about M$ft vs Sony but more in the lines of are you going to dive into the next gen systems or not.

Personally I'm on the fence, if I do this is probably the last console I'll buy for myself (Murtaugh).

Games are still my stress reliever but I can get that right now on the current gen shit. I wasn't planning on being an early adopter for either one but like I said on the fence about getting one down the line.

every generation since PS2, i get the current gen machines like 6 months to a year after they drop. Probably the same for this crop of machines.

I have a ton of games for the current gen to keep me sated for years honestly, so backwards compat will be a big factor for me as well.

I'm always late on TVs. I rocked a Philips CRT until about a year before the PS4 and only lucked into it because my dad upgraded. My current LG is stuck at 720p so I don't totally see the point in a new system right away. Hoping somebody like Best Buy (or Sony themselves) will put together some kind of console/TV/soundbar combo desperate for sales due to COVID (I have no idea how retail is doing though).

is so fucking incredible compared to what was a midrange or high-end tv just a few years ago

the like, second tier TCL / Vizio / Hisense sets are incredible, I have a TCL 6 series now, although you may want to wait for the 2020 joints to really hit to get one with HDMI 2.1

Since there's essentially no chance of getting a new MGS, this might be the time I finally jump off the current-gen train for good. I have an insane backlog of games dating back to the 8-bit era, so I'll be fine.

not completely at least, but I might have to this time because I probably shouldn't be jumping in right away, I don't really play the games to justify it.

The one game that a new console release could probably suck me in with is whenever the next Elder Scrolls hits, and not the online thing.

I never upgraded my base XBone and I feel like it’s not performing well anymore. I’m playing AC Origins and it looks like claymation compared to me just finishing Odyssey on PS4.

Buying a PS5 is gonna be solely based on when Spider-Man is dropping. If the first one wasn’t exclusive, I never would’ve gotten a PS4.

I'll likely get a Series X, but I don't know when yet.

Probably not at launch, but probably not years down the line either. If they announce something dope it'll be sooner than later.

Last time around I got a PS4 out the gate and an Xbox One a month before Titanfall dropped.

I've always found GTA to be a great showcase of what that current generation can do.
The 360 console came out in 2005. GTA V came out fall of 2013, and looked amazing for the times.

This gen taught me just get them all and you never miss anything. Sony and Nintendo are my exclusives machines and Xbox my third party and Game Pass joint. I super want one of the LG OLED's for Next Gen though.

I copped PS1 and PS2 first day (pre order was the way to go). By PS3 I had kids and a wife, so it had to wait. Plus the launch titles didn't really move me, so I was content to wait until the next Gran Turismo release. Similar deal with the PS4. Waited for bonus time then copped the system, 2nd DS4, charger, and SSDH drive.

Unless there's some serious must have games, confirmed BC and I have some extra spending money I may wait again to cop the PS5. Waiting for the announcement program

there have been a few Sony exclusives that I wish I could play, but I'm not really a gamer like that anymore and there is always a backlog of good stuff to get to. most AAA releases are either multi-platform or ported to PC later.

I'm actually closer to getting a Switch due to the portability (quick gaming around the house) and fact that current Nintendo games will never reach PC.

Otherwise I’ll wait for the eventual price drop and let everyone else beta test it. I never got a PS4 this gen (has 1,2 & 3) but wouldn’t mind the new one after a price drop.

Maybe later for any kind of hint of a price drop.
History has shown videogame companies wait about two years before
any sort of discount on the consoles.
The xbox one is probably the anomoly.

https://vgsales.fandom.com/wiki/Price_cuts

PS4
2013 - $399 (launch)
2015 - $350

XBOX ONE
2013 - $499
2014 - $399 (kinect free)
2012 - $349

XBOX 360
2005 - $299/$399 (launch)
2007 - $279 on Core, $349 on 20GB, $449 on 120GB

PS3
2006 - $499 20GB model (launch price), $599 60GB model
2008 - $399 on 80GB model



I definitely understand this sentiment though.

That was a fun couple years.
We could probably finish an entire season in a week now.
And with Twitch, we could have streamed the games online.
I probably had more fun watching the live ticker in the playoffs than
playing the actual game.

If the Series X and PS5 are both $400, I'll get the PS5.

If Series X is $400 and PS5 is $500 or more, I'll get the Series X.

If they're both more, I'll keep playing my PS4 (and Switch, and One S) for a while.

I'm not interested in Lockhart or whatever the 4TF MS console ends up being called. I'd only be interested in a disc-less PS5 if it was like $300 or something.

I think the UHD drive only adds like $20 on Sony's end, but the drive is more than a $20 value for people with 4k blurays and trade games.

I'm thinking the base price is $500 and the digital edition tries to hit that $400 mark. Or at least that's what I'm hoping. If it's $600 and $500, it's another PS3 fiasco.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

They might be thinking that, long term, a discless system means everybody is buying from the PS Store for the most part. With that, the ~$80 hit in price diff is offset after a person buys X many games where Sony doesn’t have to pay for manufacturing and shipping discs.

We’ll see. I’ve seen rumors now that even Lockhart won’t be that cheap so who knows.
