Can't wait as well. Hope it cost less as its a weaker console. Pricing the same price with a competitot that has a stronger hardware won't go well

What do you think will happen if it's priced the same?



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

I figured that’s just the corporate culture. In terms of communicating to the community, Xbox is at the top. Perhaps they are a little TOO talkative lol. Sony is in the middle. Long periods of silence but they eventually comment on pressing concerns sooner or later. Then you have Nintendo which doesn’t care about the community concerns...they literally say something when they deem necessary. 

Just the cards we dealt with when we pick sides (shrugs) 

Not really, Sony communicates about their plans and games, MS try to rob the spotlight from other companies, if you like it good for you. Their corporate culture is of mudding the water

Sony was largely silent from Dec-June while Xbox was (at the time) giving a steady stream of positive PR and game announcements and console reveals. May showing being their first mistep. That was a dry spell for you guys and I’ll remind you and anyone who decides to forget that in the coming months.

That said, Sony’s strategy is more tactful, I’ll give them that. Silence but followed by strategic PR that hits harder as opposed to Xbox PR which is constant but can be more fluff then necessary. I stand by my “tier list” of PR with fans. 



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Someone’s gotta tell the public what games are multiplat and timed. It certainly won’t be Sony lol. 

Thinking of Xbox showcases where they say off the bat “World Premiere” = multiplat or games that are timed. Very clear messaging. Sony just shows trailers without context of availability, and making people guess or assume they are exclusive when they are not is a little shady.

In this regard what Phil says after their conferences is a blessing. He is simply clearing up FUD but yes it also serves to take away some of the spotlight which I understand your frustration. 

Please. E3 2017 MS introduced cuts of "Launch Exclusive" and "Xbox One Exclusive" at the start of each trailer, with an overhead voice booming 'Exclusive' every time. They also had 'World Preimere' just to muddy the waters even more. Far, far from clear. Media picked up on it as well.

Phil even had to clarify what was meant by the term.

Seems clear to me. Launch exclusive = timed. Xbox Exclusive = Xbox and PC. World Premiere = Multiplat but first time you hear about this game.

Yes Sony didn`t made comments on MS constant PR and hyping.

Talking only about their own console and on very few occasions. Even like that MS and Phil couldn`t allow Sony to have that moment of talking for themselves, they needed to go there and try to get some exposition as well.

For this reason we mock the reveal of XSX getting a small fraction of reactions than the simple showing of PS5 logo. I bet Phil gets very frustrated with it.

There's a lot more to performance than Strength. for example, an iPhone is nowhere near as 'powerful' as a Samsung Galaxy phone, yet it performs at neatly identical levels due to optimization and good programming on apple's part. 

I hate iPhone, this is just the facts. 

The way they're explaining the PS5 is that, while it lacks the raw processing power of the Xbone, it performs on par or better due to the SSD. Plus the brand recognition matters. I could see Sony being more expensive than Microsoft this gen but getting away with it.

In his defense, PS guys go to his Xbox threads all the time and harass him. It got so bad the mods here needed to implement new rules about being harsh to Xbox people and protecting the Xbox community because they were ostracized for being like Sales2099 or whatever his name is. So yeah, I don't begrudge him. He's not bad people, he's just very, VERY preferential towards his preferred brand. 

No idea why we can't use the term 'fanboy' around here. It's an apt description. like 80% of the users on this forum are fanboys or fangirls in some way. it's not a derogatory term. Everyone has a preferred console just like some people have preferred fake gods or preferred sports teams. That's just my take, though. 



Yeah I get it. People have their preferred system to play their stuff on. I just don't get the constant need to defend and attack other brands at the detriment to others *shrug*

But anywho just a day to go hyyyppe!!

You've already confused the meaning of the term 'world premiere' in this very thread.

I couldn't possibly prove my point more clearly.
