Not to throw shade at Xbox but honestly their output this generation has been poor in terms of exclusives. Its kind of telling when your top games are a metroidvania indie like game like Ori and Forza's. The rest of their new IP's can go from good to pretty bad.

And some people think that PS is so popular due to mind-share or Sony land territories like the EU but honestly, its all about the games. Always has been.

Yeah, I wasn't TRYING to throw shade at anyone, I was just collecting data to see just how many PS4 'exclusives' there really were. The number didn't surprise me, but a 4:1 ratio between the HD giants (Nintendo is doing its own thing and is only halfway through its generation, so I think it's fair to give them time) is hilarious. and when 13/24 of your exclusives are from the 'holy trinity' of Halo, Gears, and Forza...well, there's a VERY good reason that narrative exists. it's kind of a shame, too, becaue like, Sony managed to kickstart new franchises and new IP this generation while also reinventing old ones or rebooting them and continuing old games. 

Mostly I'm surprised at how many games are on PS4 that I'd never heard of. Like what the heck is 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim? Whatever it is, it's a PS4 exclusive that got pretty great reviews (I think 86) and a lot of them, too. It wasn't some cheap little indie game, it's a full blown anime game and I'd never even heard of it before doing all this. So yeah, Sony wins because Diversity and quality. Nintendo wins because of quality and portability/gimmicks. all in all, I am confident in saying that anyone with a PS4/5 and a Switch will enjoy like 99% of the best that gaming has to offer. 

I do worry that stuff like Doom, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Wolfenstein, and Dishonoured are gonna be lost to the X-abyss (Seriously, after this generation Xbox is going to have to do more than buy Bethesda to get me back), but I have a PC. I'll just play Elder Scrolls VI on PC on its lowest settings.

I meant on my part lol. But yeah statistically, PS4 has a higher quality output compared to other platforms. This hasn't changed since their Sony's inception into the industry. A 4-1 ratio vs Xbox is pretty insane gulf mind. The thing is, historically Microsoft has never really supports their consoles for that long; with first party titles - especially in the latter years of a consoles life. About the holy trinity thing, idd.. unless you're really into those games there's not many other big exclusives from the green camp.

I definitely do see a shift in priorities with the Xbox division this generation though. They have already spent a huge amount of funds in buying studios and setting up this gen with a truckload of new IP's from Zenimax.

Tbh I haven't been too keen on Bethesda games this gen. I have to say, Elderscrolls is a big get for Xbox and potentially Starfield. I just hope they will let them do their own thing instead of making certain devs factories for IP's. They haven't had the best track record for acquisitions :P

And you're probably best off playing TES 6 on PC. Bethesda games are usually quite buggy at launch and mods are usually there to come save the day.

As someone who didn't play GoT on PS4, this Legends update combined with the 60fps boost, make this game a no-brainer on PS5.



Black DualSense controller? Leaked on Twitter.



Might be a dev kit one so it might look a bit plain, I think I actually prefer the OG white one.

I prefer the original as well. Hopefully, they'll stick with the two tones design. Having a small variation in color could make black work.

Can't wait to see future variations.



That mock up blue one looks nice! And yeah, the two tone colour scheme has grown on me. If they should ever launch a PS1 classic grey like the 20th anniversary DS4 controller (love mine), I would buy in an instant. Also some custom grey side panels to match lol.

That's definitely better than all monotone black. I'd really prefer colored buttons though.

Apparently, all of the 4,000 PS4 games will be playable on PS5 through BC except for the 10 below (link).
Full BC with all PS generations would've been neat but at least PS4 BC is near perfect.

DWVR
Afro Samurai 2 Revenge of Kuma Volume One
TT Isle of Man - Ride on the Edge 2
Just Deal With It!
Shadow Complex Remastered
Robinson: The Journey
We Sing
Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
Shadwen
Joe's Diner

Those who bought just deal with it will have to, how do I put it...



The list is actually down to 8 games that are not playable on PS5. The devs of DWVR and TT isle of man said a few days ago they are working on a patch to make it 100% PS5 compatible.
