It you weren't lying so much about this and that and your knowledge which is fabricated, 1 you'd been very good with M&KB in FPS now. 2 you'd know that all modern FPS games on PC work with controllers natively.

Since you missed the announcement that Microsoft have deliberately waited until AFTER the PS5 to do the latest Xbox reveal. So no, you nor any member of public has not yet seen the new Xbox. Cos it hasn't been revealed yet.

Anonymous, 13 Jun 2020when is Xbox event scheduled for? It has been aired long ago and it was pretty bad and terrible compared to PS5. There is so many cool games I'm kinda tempted to grab PS5. My last PS was PS2 and I basically bought it for Gran Turismo 4 and Burnout trilogy (Takedown, Revenge and Domination). I also got Black and Killzone, but I couldn't ever get the hang of clumsy aiming with gamepad. Been playing FPS games for 25 years with keyboard+mouse and it just doesn't work for me. I wish there were more racing games on PS like it was back when I bought PS2. Now it's just Gran Turismo and that weird arena racing thing. Only game on Xbox that really excited me was Scorn. That Alien-esque theme with grotesque world and you're a weird skinless creature really got my attention. It'll be on PC too so there's one more reason I'm not gonna buy Xbox unfortunately.

GTA 5 being rereleased? Duh...
GTA 6 is still far away. Bully 2 has been cancelled a long time ago unfortunately.

only game i'm looking forward to is gran turismo 7

Kind of weak launch lineup for both next Gen consoles. At least past 2 generation consoles got better launch games... But let's see if there are some surprises.

Was disappointed in the event until I saw Demon’s Souls Remake!

  • PSX

Wow, I'm amazed. For the first time these ps5 games are like Nintendo games but for babies!!
(Hello Mario Odyssey Baby Brother "Astros Playroom")!! Lots of unique games that looks like we're designed to be played on a smartphone. Where is Uncharted? God of War? Metal Gear Solid? Killzone 5? Final Fantasy 16 with it's crazy graphics?

But hey we got Rachet and Clank which btw was awesome on my PS3 but it looks like they are more focused on making this game more world shifting demo to show off it's ultra fast SSD rather than quality gameplay.
And that fast SSD will barely be noticed in third party games but the difference in TFLOPS that XSX has will.
PS3 had the best futuristic hardware, best hardcore games and PS4 had some good ones as well but only during the whole lifespan.

With that said PS5 all the way since when PS5 Pro comes out in 2022 it will have better GPU performance than XSX (the only main advantage of Xbox), Sony is only one that's interested in VR which is the whole new level of gaming and PS5 controllers offer alot more functions like motion sensing, 3D audio, speakers, etc..

Rachet And Clank also. Day 1 for me

If this is all the next-gen of consoles are bringing graphically to the future of gaming, our gaming rig -- 2x (Sli) RTX 2080 Ti / 3950X /32GB RAM is good for a while.

I still love last-gen PS4 exclusives, though. But, this gen exclusives looks meh (except Miles's Spiderman) so far, not a system seller.
