  1. I mean I totally agree after horror stories i've heard over the years but guess where my X is coming from They were the only place I tried on preorder day not to suffer from downtime from too much traffic. Also you have to think of your chances better as they must surely get masses of allocation compared to others too.
  2. Seems most likely to be fake or misunderstood. People getting emails about games and accessories shipping on the 12th when they were expecting them to come on the 19th along with the console. This possibly jumping to conclusion the console is coming on the 12th too.
  3. Do a kickflip on 20th Nov. Tony Hawks? Am I asking for too much?
  4. Fingers crossed this happens accross Europe.
  5. Did they have information on bundles yet? Anything of note?
  6. PS5 - 17 days to go, DualSense officially endorsed by The Beach Boys
  7. I guess that does answer it, it seems you may be happier to be a PC gamer and thats not exactly a bad thing. I do like my PC and when things work right it's amazing. It also begs the question do you prefer KB & M or controller? This has been a bit of an issue for me, I do like and appreciate there is a vastly greater skill ceiling with KB&M but i'm not patient enough to keep at it. It also cramps up my left hand and feels like a RSI won't be far off. If I have anything to say on it from my opinion/perspective, using a keyboard sucks, mouse is awesome. I've been a pad player since SNES and it just feels right. Lastly, i'm absolutely fed up with hackers/cheaters when playing Destiny 2 on PC.
  8. Just had a google and I think you got this at the right time, performance update in regards to CPU usage and some people are claiming to have seen double the FPS performance. I am truly hoping this means it will be coming to console sooner than later, although i'm taking into account what @footle mentioned above just to crush my hopes a little.
  9. If you had this running at 1080p 60 on medium and at 4k, I think your PC has all the secret sauce. If it's had a performance update i'll need to try it again. My i5 9400 and RTX2070 super couldn't get 1080p 60 at launch.
  10. I wasn't aware, it looked to me like you were interested in the jump from current gen to next gen not PC and console. (missed the part you talked about gamepass for PC and steam). Also just to ask a question on the section I've highlighted in bold - what were you expecting to be different? For me it's not just about it being shinier, the game could potentially look the same cross gen but perform significantly better on next gen. What then would you choose?
  11. I know it is your opinion and all but this is so far from the truth it is actually staggering. The new consoles are extremely advanced compared to the outgoing systems (and I am talking about the mid system refresh One X or PS4 Pro) in terms of sheer CPU and GPU power and performance. Extremely fast SSD as standard which drastically reduces loading times and sometimes eliminates them entirely. To then read you are happy to settle for the Series S is baffling after your previous statement. (this is not an attack on XSS as I believe it will also be a welcome upgrade to current gen at it's price point). I think where most people are struggling to justify new systems is looking at the games, whether it be new next gen games or a comparison last gen vs next gen enhanced version of the same titles. Next gen games won't look like a PS1 - PS2 - PS3 jump in visuals at first glance. New games will predominantly use the same game engines which means what you will get is the same game with shinies turned up to 10, better framerate, faster loads. I believe games will look similar (again at first glance) across generations for some time if on the older hardware they can match or get near the same resolutions, 1080p, 1440p, 4k. What takes a game into next gen territory will sometimes be developer budgets rather than a new game release in itself. I'll give one basic example I am familiar with, Destiny 2, this game can visually look the same on Xbox One X/PS4 Pro as it does on PC's but play it on a PC that is capable of higher frame rate and quicker loading times and it becomes almost impossible to ever go back and play (suffer) the console version again. So they look the same but feel completely different.
  12. I have a very capable PC, and I struggled to get this game running. There is a lot of poeple who have issues getting this game to install and to boot properly. It's also a game that made me further realise console gaming is easy and PC gaming can be really temperamental. Hoping Flight Sim makes it to XSX. Even games like GTA IV, I had trouble getting it to boot because it required a dead service for it to work, there was a workaround - got it to boot somewhat, had some other issues, gave up. This is why i'm excited for the new consoles, all the benefits I wanted from PC gaming (ssd speeds and framerates) with the ease of console gaming.
  13. Thats 7PM our time right? I really hope I'm not still waiting on "Stan" who is "8 stops away" at that time.
  14. I had the T300RS thrustmaster wheel. Was fantastic and the brushless motors with the force feedback was something else. You could definitely feel surfaces through the wheel. Tarmac surface you could tell the tyres were gripping and when they were letting go. Gravel surface the wheel would feel rather loose and you could tell there was no grip on the tyres but you would feel jittering in the force feedback. Icy surface it would be loose and no feedback. It also wasnt just on or off it was really clever with increasing intensity to make it feel very realistic. In terms of feeling what was happening in the pedals, no. I did buy the pedals with clutch only because you got better pedals and it had a rubber cone behind the brake pedal which gave you a progressive feel. This is the part I think the Dualsense will offer that pedals can't (the pedals I had anyway, i would bet there are pedals that can do this). Being able to feel ABS etc but it can't really offer FFB on the steering. I fully believe it is the same type of technology being used in the Dualsense and thats just incredible. You won't beat a proper wheel setup for a gaming driving experience but this new technology will bridge that gap and maybe even offer something the other doesn't have. The other crazy thing is that the controller is packed in with the console, its not an additional spend.
  15. Single fucking digits!!!! Hurry up @Darren with todays countdown hype
  16. I luckily have a V1 Elite still going strong, no issues at all. I don't know why there is so many quality issues with them. I really would not say they have used cheap parts but certainly seem to have a wide range of issues. I'll say one thing though if Sony made a Dual Sense "Elite" i'd be all fucking over it. I play mostly FPS games and back buttons are essential once you have used them. Had a Scuf controller on the PS4 and it was unreliable and the paddles broke often and the sticks wore out so quickly, talk about cheap parts. If you compare the quality of the Elite pads to a Scuf it's night and day.
  17. Ahhh, yes i've had it on PC before.
  18. Just tried to do the £121 xbox live gold trick. Got the £1 upgrade option after redeeming all my live codes. Clicked it. It wanted to send me a text to confirm it's me. Done. £1 offer disappeared, showed as £10.99. Thought I was totally fucked and that i would still have to pay the £10.99 per month but I just paid the £10.99 once and it upgraded the full 3 years. Bit worse than others but still a good saving none the less.
