Well for now ratchet, gt7, god of war are still exclusive. Apparently demon souls is also confirmed to be exclusive though I do expect it to release on pc eventually. The information provided on the ad was incorrect https://kotaku.com/demons-souls-remake-also-coming-to-pc-timed-exclusive-1845082896/amp?__twitter_impression=true

Lets see.
The PS plus collection is not even 1% the same as game pass.
Game pass is a service, that cost an extra amount that gives you a lot of games. In which you have "Access" to them until they rotate out.
PS collection is free (as far as additional costs). It is few games. And they are attached to your account forever.

Kotaku is already correcting Demon souls as a PS5 exclusive. Along with most likely many other games.

"I don't think the PS Plus stuff comes remotely close to GamePass," that's because it's not. It isn't. That fact you know this makes the comparison all the more strange. As you knew how poor it is - but desperately needed something to add to this strange fairy tails as yours.

Right now I'm just hoping Sony made a mistake in their blog post regarding cross generation HFW. It has happened before with BC lol.



PS5 is launching with 2 next gen exclusives and has Ratchet, GOW and more scheduled for next year.

The primary fault of MS wasn't that they had cross gen games in the pipeline, it was their communicating that they were committed to cross gen for the next 2 years. Obviously a dumb PR move, but it would have been quickly forgotten if they actually showed next gen games that impressed. Instead we got that Halo Infinite gameplay demo and a bunch of CGI trailers.

Funny thing is that in the end MS crossgen AAA titles will be only Halo Infinite? So are you going to say MS didn`t really helped gamers not need to upgrade?

Uh, isn't Gears Tactics launching this year on Xbox? And there is still an Xbox version of Flight Sim planned AFAIK. They also have money hat deals with games that are coming to Xbone and Series X/S.

What an amazing picture.

No, Microsoft still has Papa Phil and Major Nelson, so their next PR blunder is only days away at most.

I don't care for the Papa Phil slander but I gotta + any post that shits on Major Nelson.

Uh, what? 

What exactly is why Sony has done whatever with whatever?

Sony created a product (PlayStation) that appeals to the core first and the masses second which translates to success.  But like any product, one product will not appeal to everyone such as yourself with the PlayStation.  This in itself is fine.  But, yes, Sony had a VERY solid showing of doing what they've been doing which is looking that they will provide gamers with quality, variety and quantity of choices.  You prefer Xbox.  That's fine, but there is no need to self-compartmentalize your reasoning such as the false "Japanese stuff" narrative.  PlayStation WILL do well, and it's NOT just because of the "Japanese stuff".  But if that's your justification, then keep a closed mind.  That's why you keep scratching your head otherwise known as denial.  Again, you prefer Xbox, and that's totally cool.  What's not cool is your constant loathing biased against PlayStation.  Yeah, I called it out.  But keep justifying to yourself because that's all you're gonna do.

Wow, cool story bro. This is the problem when you cut off 2/3 of a post and make silly remarks out of context. I understand Sony appeals to many people and will do well. My post even says if you're a fan of the stuff I am not, it could have been a great show for you. The head scratching stuff was about what followed, the stuff from my post that you cut out for whatever reason. Also gotta say it's kind of weird that you on one hand say it's "fine" and "totally cool" to prefer something else but on the other it's "self-compartmentalizing" to point out something that doesn't appeal to me. Maybe you're using a term you don't understand? Not going to bother with the console warrior stuff towards the end, in the future try to reply to a whole post and not cut stuff out to go on some silly tangent. Hope that helps.

They certainly haven't done themselves any favors with some of the stuff they've shown. Also Halo 5 already came out, but I forgive that mistake as it was a very forgettable game.

Yeah I agree and said as such in the OP, surely it's a marketing/PR mistake.
