What's a console?   O:-)

You have to pay to play MP?? I would pay not to!

Yep, I have zero desire to play MP...I stick to single player.

That is crazy talk. Talking about consoles really brings me back though...I loved the original Colony Wars, Legacy of Cain and Civ II.

I am getting a PS5 from my wife for my special birthday, so yes, one it pre-ordered.  :bd:

I am not bothered by the ‘pay to play online’ thing as it also includes new free games every month for you to download and keep as long as your sub runs.
While the offerings were mostly small indie titles when the scheme first launched, these days they offer solid games frequently.
As long as you don’t buy every new game when it gets released you’re bound to offset the costs for the MP with getting a few great games.

{glances at totally uninstalled PS4 lying over in a corner with some games-of-the-year}

...so far I have resisted this temptation.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

You bring up a good point Ysk and a friend I was talking to brought up the same argument with me as well. 

I agree, that when you look at the long term you do recoup the money for the subscription in free games.  My question, to myself that is, is will I really have the time to enjoy a bunch of games I got for free when I'm barely keeping up with games I've purchased?

I think I'll wait 6 to 8 months post launch to see how things develop and to allow for the PS5 library to build up a bit before I buy.

well, as suspected i ended up cancelling my pre order.  going through the list of games planned for the next year either didnt interest me or they will have pc versions that i would prefer.  i am sure some day i might reconsider.

My PS5 was delivered yesterday!  :peace:

Its a big machine, but purs silently like a little kitten, even when under load.
The new UI is an improvement and its lag free and super quick.

The DualSense controller is the most comfortable Sony controller ever and the haptics are definitely next gen: feeling ‘mass’ and detailed feedback like rain ticking on your controller is absolutely something I’ve never experienced before.

Big thumbs up from me so far!

Wow I didn't know they were shipping preorders already.  Got any games for it?  Is it backwards compatible with PS4?
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

I'm pretty sure it is backwards compatible.

Nice. Sounds great. I'll probably go ahead and pick one up after the New Year. There is talk that they may be working on SOCOM 5 for the new console. Assuming its similar to the original titles in the series that would make the console a must buy for me.

Not *all* PS4 games can be played on PS5, but I haven’t come across any I own that won’t play, so I reckon its probably either some small indie games or games from the earlier days of PS4.
Most are definitely compatible.

Your social space is also compatible, meaning that not only your friendslist ports over, but you can even play with them without issue between consoles (say my mate plays Destiny on PS4, I can still join his party and fireteam on my PS5).

The game that comes pre-installed on PS5; Astro’s Playroom is a must play! Not only is it gorgeous and demo’s all the new capabilities of the controller, its also a fun game in its own right which oozes with charm and fan service. Don’t ignore it!

A new SOCOM would be so awesome! And if they use the haptics like CoD Cold War its going to be a truely amazing game!
