Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS5 or RTX 3080 (Lol update)

What would be wisest?

PS5 54 44.26%
 
RTX 3080 49 40.16%
 
Neither, you don't need a... 19 15.57%
 
Total:122

If I were to get a graphics card, I'd get it ASAP. Prices can rise, and the earlier you buy, the longer the time you'll have with the card before it becomes dated. 3080 will be better than the PS5, but you wont have any exclusives. If exclusives don't matter to you, then there's no reason to consider a PS5. I've been burned out on PS exclusives for years, as they're all just single player story based corridors of fighting enemy hordes. It gets old after doing it in the uncharted games, tomb raider, batman, etc. I just don't enjoy it, or paying for PS+, I wasn't able to finish any PS4 game this gen outside of Detroit: Become Human. The other 3 games I finished this gen were either on PS3, or PC, and that's when I beat it.

But, Windows 10 comes with xbox live, and you wont have to pay a subscription to use it on PC.

However... Seeing that you have a 2070 Super...  I don't see why you wouldn't want to at least wait until next year, and get a 4080.  There wont be a big enough improvement to justify, unless you coming from a 1000 series or older.

Sony will be putting more and more of their stuff on PC. Makes the choice easy if you are into PC gaming.



I'd take the card in a heartbeat, no console is worth much in its first year, perhaps even the first two. Technical issues, poor library, a high price on both hardware and software etc. I've never bought a console before at least one year passed, and I likely never will. I'm actually considering the brute myself (3090), that way I can max things for years to come. I'm waiting to see confirmed prices, as I'd need more RAM and a bigger PSU as well.



considering the grafics card that you have, I dont see the point



If I've taken what you have said correctly, then you plan on doing both.

Without re-iterating all the reasoning,that leaves you with two options. For the sake of this, lets say you purchase a PS5 at holiday season 2021.

So at Holiday 2021:

A. You will then have a card that's a year old, purchased at a higher price, and a PS5.

OR:

B. You will already have a PS5, and be now looking to upgrade your card at a cheaper price, or get a better card.

The only variable I can see is the re-sale value of your current card, how much it depreciates in the extra year vs the discount of the card you are looking at. Or will there be a better card by then? Will you have saved any extra money?

I don't see there being a pricecut for the PS5 within the first year, and unless there's a repeat of the 7th gen, I'm happy enough to dive in early with either Sony or MS hardware.



A thing of beauty, strength, and grace lies behind that whiskered face.

Getting a Ps5 will allow you to have access to more games since you can play exclusives where as a 3080 will significantly enhance your existing games and upcoming multi-platform games.

Personally speaking though, as my main interest is in Ratchet and Clank, I would delay my purchase for the ps5 until then if I had to choose.

I play third party games on PC, I literally only will use the PS5 for exclusives and ps plus games, like I have been doing my PS4 for a while now. 

Ratchet and Clank looks fantastic and I've loved those games but even if I delay purchase 6 months to a year or so then we'll see, but I feel if I don't buy one at launch I probably wont get one for over a year and let the library start to mature. I mean we all remember 2014 right??? *shudders*

I don't see why anyone would get a PS5 (or any console) at launch if this is how then intend to use it. Come back in a year or 2 when there is a backlog of quality exclusives to play. For me, PS4 didn't reach that point until late 2016.



A lot of responses to apply to all I'll reply to the main points here:

1. I do still plan on getting a PS5, getting a 3080 will mean that I'm making the upgrade to playing the majority of non competitive games in 4k.

2. I'm going to wait to see normal ras comparisons in reviews first to see exactly how these cards compare, but from what I've seen on DF it's huge.

3. PS5 Will be purchased when the exclusive library is built up a bit which means probably mid 2022.

There's only 2 races: White and 'Political Agenda'
2 Genders: Male and 'Political Agenda'

Then it's a no brainer, get the card.

Let PS5 building up its first party and 3rd party exclusives first and if you're lucky those games might be ported to PC later on.

Get RTX3080 asap as DLLS 2.0 is a future proof.



Well, your 2070 Super is basically on the level of a PS5. I'd probably go with the 3080 and get a PS5 later.

Edit:

Since it seems you'll mainly be playing on PC, then yeah a 3080 for sure makes the most sense. PS5 exclusives won't be in large supply for a couple of years.
