Sony is focusing on Hard-Core Gamers for PS5

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony is focusing on Hard-Core Gamers for PS5

You guys are simply wrong, hardcore means PS5 will be catter for elites like PC master race or PS fans loyalis , the console will be premium like Xbox One X or slightly even more expensives. Also hardcore means, there will have less garbage shovelware games on the library (more quality control) . Also will focus on triple A and more exclusives . The article doesn't said there will be no more indies or double AA. I believes 1000% it will be there but it will be have more quality control (like Nintendo did with ( Snes ). . And focus on traditional offline platform (PS Now library will have just old games like PS4 and PS3 games) .

No surprise here, business is business and if one company doesn't do this, their competitors will.

Don't hate the player, hate the game. (Where our game is their game, but their game is business lol)

Exactly.

Looking at your avatar, it's expected that the post I'd agree with most in this thread would be this one :D

Well it's true that great minds think alike :P

Sounds like timed/exclusive content to me. No big deal. SIE is already vastly superior to MS first party and may surpass Nintendo's first party next generation.

IMO it's already surpassed Nintendo first party. I like Nintendo's exclusives but they don't deliver rich story telling the way Sony does and that's what I prefer.

Early indirect subliminal next gen marketing? Get it in gamers heads that if you want to be considered hardcore, the PS5 is the console to choose?

A business publication is being used for marketing gamers?

It's being talked about here isn't it?



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

I meant to say Sony may pass Nintendo first party commercially. 

But yeah I agree, SIE has taken story telling to another level this generation, with TLOU:PT.II yet to come!

Once you hit 1GB of used capacity on each chip, then you can only start filling up the 2GB chips...

And this is when you switch from clamshell mode to non-clamshell mode on the 2GByte chips on both channels, putting the 1GByte chips onto high impedance.

As you say, it is really very complicated implementing such shenanigans and I doubt they are going to implement this. 

I see either 16Gbyte on a 256bit bus or 24Gbyte on a 384bit bus, leaning towards the 16GByte solution which is obviously much cheaper. Also with the "superfast ssd" solution combined with improved memory compression technology leads me to think 16GByte will be enough memory for a console.

Microsoft's E3 trailer shows us that Scarlett is possibly using a mix of 1GB and 2GB chips.
Digital Foundry mentions it here even: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2019-project-scarlett-spec-analysis

Whether they employ a 256bit or 384bit bus remains to be seen... And again, I am not asserting anything as fact, just hypothesizing on possibilities.

As for the SSD... That isn't a replacement for Ram.

Ah ok. Yea Sony is on another level this gen. In the middle of god of war and I swear one part almost made my eyes water I couldn't believe it. I'm glad Sony (and Nintendo) are still providing quality single player experiences. For a while there it seemed like that sort of gaming experience might be pushed into more of a niche type product.



It worked with PS4...



I believe Sony will sell the PS5 with loss, at minimum a 100 bucks loss. It will take at least 2 years after PS5 launch for it to have a production cost lower than the sell price.
