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

I'm not flaming anybody. I am just taking the position that suggesting (regardless of method) that the Xbox isn't a nex generation console is silly at best. Especially when the ps5 is missing some key attributes. And I say this as somebody who has owned every Sony home console and plans on getting a ps5 over a Xbox.

As for the innocent act.  Your poll allows users to vote the ps5 being the only next generation console and the other option is for users to vote the ps5 is the only next generation console...  right...  

You claimed the OP was suggesting it, while that was what the reviewers were saying so basically missed target.

On the poll I thought it was very obvious it is was a joke. "Yes but in CAPS" should have ticked the box.

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.

May I ask what it is that Sony would have to do for you to ever comment positively about PlayStation?

You realize his response is targeted to the OP's ridiculous claim right? It has nothing to do with hating Sony. You feel like this is an attack on Sony, yet you're totally cool with what the threads about. A little hypocritically don't you think? 

And what the thread is about?

Really, you're the grammar police now? Now that's ironic. 

What did I say have anything to do with grammar police?

No, you may not. Since I know you love conflict. You like to ignore when I have said a few times PS4 is one of my fave systems oh and yes look how much I dislike PlayStation. Gosh darn I dislike them so much that I could...

Criticizing is not the same as bashing. Said multiple times I am getting a PS5 down the road but it has plenty to criticize.

I have an Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Does that mean that I'm allowed to ruthlessly critize Xbox? I mean, I thought so, but evidently not. Regardless of whether or not you have sony consoles, you're still being hilariously biased in your critique, and you seem to nitpick Sony a whole lot more. Or you're just a troll trying to get under people's skin. Either way, if I'm banned from criticizing Xbox, you should be banned from criticizing Sony; after all, I have all the Xbox machines, so our sides are equal. 

I think Leynos case is more that he is very critical of current gaming landscape. He seems to prefer more how games were until gen 7 or so.

I know he was a fan of Sega consoles. Same as me. The Dreamcast being one of my favourite consoles of all time.

Still, there’s no need to complain about Sony every chance he gets. It got redundant a while ago, and only instills negativity, and one has to wonder what it is he wants to achieve by repeating his dislikes like this. Would help he he balanced it all with something positive, because as it is, people are never surprised to see him in a PS thread and commenting negatively.

Critics were wrong about The Last of Us Part II, so they may very well be wrong here too.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

You did suggest it, those were your words that are typed in the OP, not everything was a quote.  You cherry picked reviews, made a thread suggesting the Xbox wasn't next generation (only the ps5 was) and did so to stir the pot. 

If I create a thread asking who makes the best software, cite Breath of the Wild reviews (just a few select ones), and the poll has "Nintendo" or "NINTENDO" as the only options.... 

I think you get my point, or maybe not.  Who knows.  But for the record, the folks around here are not as stupid as you apparently think they are.  Everybody knows exactly what the goal of this thread was.

Nope. I put the source and there they had the quotes, I choose 2. The title of the thread is the subtitle of the article.

I commented on the quotes.

I don't assume people are stupid, but thanks for the suggestion.

Dude, if ps5 is the only true next gen console, then generations don't really matter, and are truly dead and buried. Good riddance I say. Games like Breath of the Wild, Hades, and countless Indies have long since proven that you don't need vastly improved hardware to freshen up stale genres.Also, quick resume is a flat out better feature than PS5's card system, yet "cards" are one of the big next-gen differentiators?

Cards are great, so yes, they are a big deal. I like my Switch games.

Thread seems entirely designed to bait people, which it does. Saying "the critics have spoken" based on two critics (only one of which says anything that could even vaguely be said to support PS5 being the "only" next gen console) is baiting. The poll that doesn't present an actual option is clear trolling. No way this was going to lead to productive conversation which, unsurprisingly, it did not.Locking.
