Collecting dust/10

Really not anyone's fault but my own. I really didn't have anything I wanted to play on it, I just bought it because I got an invite and it didn't seem like prices were going down any time soon or anything. I played Astro Bot on it which was a cute tech demo and a bit of Miles Morales, but that's about it. And, I have tons of titles on my Switch and a few on Gamepass that I need to get through, and less time for gaming than I have in the past.

I'll probably be happy I got it once Spider-man 2 comes out, and FF7 Rewhatevs pt 2, and RE4make maybe.

I don't know if it's because I'm from an older generation or what, but this is the first time I haven't bought a new Sony console at, or near launch. I still don't own a PS5 or an Xbox 4, and I don't feel the need for one either, because it never felt like the PS4 and Xbox 3 needed to be replaced. It was just like, here are our two new consoles that make games look a little better and run the games a little better than our last consoles. Please buy them and continue to enjoy the same games you're currently playing in slighter better ways. With PS2/Xbox/PS3/Xbox 2, that wasn't the case. The whole industry shifted. There was a massive jump forward and brand new franchises like GTA3 (the jump to 3D made it feel like a new franchise), Halo, Uncharted and Gears of War that sprung up and couldn't have been played before. You needed the new console, and if you didn't get it, you were left out in the cold while this exciting new revolution was taking place. I didn't feel that at all with the PS5/Xbox 4, so I still don't have either... and it's a real shame. Especially for me. 

I hope PS6/Xbox 5 don't repeat the same approach, and they go back to the old way of doing things. 

No please... It's better that way, much more democratic. Most people just cannot afford to buy hardware every couple of years, why should we remove them the right of playing games that could be perfectly playable on their machines only to give the satisfaction of richer people to have their "exclusivity"?

Like, I've played Horizon Forbidden West and it's for sure run much better on my PS4 than it runs on my 11 years cousin PS4, but the still can play it. Would my experience with Horizon became any better if Horizon was absent from PS4? Not, doubt it. But this kid would probably be much less happy knowing he would have to wait for maybe 4 years to play Horizon again.
