Forums - Sony Discussion - Critics agree that Sony's PS5 transcends on-paper comparisons to Xbox, and is the only new console that "feels" next-gen from the first moment

 

Is PS5 the only gen 9 system?

yes 10 38.46%
 
YES, but in CAPS. 16 61.54%
 
Total:26

The critics have spoken, PS5 is the only true gen 9 console.

"In his review, GameSpot's Mat Paget revealed that he completed all of stealth challenges in Insomniac's Spider-Man: Miles Morales through Activities cards in the PS5 Control Center -- no need to navigate through the game's menus or even traverse its open world to the mission marker. This is made possible, he said, by the PS5's consistently fast load times for all games." - This for me is something fantastic and great QoL. Hope a lot of devs use it.

"This may be the most crucial difference between PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S at the dawn of this new generation. We cannot simply ignore the fact that Microsoft has made a conscious choice to move away from vast leaps between consoles, and toward the kind of consistency the Game Pass ecosystem demands. But we also can't ignore that Microsoft's choice inherently reduces opportunities to exploit the excitement of the new -- which is what hardware reviewers look for when arriving at their conclusions." - They seem to think this thinking held Xbox back (similar to our Goochs thinking).

Not to forget several reviewers basically claimed that Dual Sense makes it feel a next-gen much more than RT, SSD and the TFlops. Including Digital Foundry if I'm not wrong.

And Yoshi agrees with them.

Not that hard to transcend the Series X, when it's only around 17% more powerful than you are. For comparison's sake the PS4 was 40% more powerful than the launch model XB1, for $100 less.

The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

 

I honestly can’t tell if this is a joke thread or not. But props to Sony for bringing something new.



Considering there won't be a big difference between XSX and PS5 when it comes to performance on multiplats, adaptive triggers and haptic feedback are going to definitely put the ball in Sony's court this coming gen. Something tells me MS might come out with a new controller in 1-2 years.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I don't think there is a drinking problem on VGChartz based on that thread lol



 

 

Can't back up your saves via USB on PS5. Giant Bomb UI walkthrough shows it's missing a lot of basic features PS4 has. BC is confusing. The system can't even lay on its side without attachments and a screw that everyone will lose. PS5 seems rushed esp in UI.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Apparently you can't stream or record 4K video from PS5 without an external capture device:

But you can on Xbox Series X, which supports up to 4K 60 FPS captures and streams through the system software. PS5 is so next-gen xD (jk).

The drunk people obviously were too drunk to hit the right button. The drinking problem of VGC users is very evident from that thread.
