You know what? It's Friday. It's evening. And I've started drinking. Let's get this show on the road!

Well, what a week, and we still have a ways to go. It's Friday, and I want to get to drinking, so what do you say we just get started with this, hmm? Sound good?



Okay, then! Coastel, jayu26, hanmik. Please step forward. For the crimes of picking the wrong reveal date for the PlayStation 5, I hereby sentence you to public avatar shaming.

Coastel, you should really take care of yourself. Have a nice ergonomic chair to help with that!



jayu26, always remember to keep one foot in front of the other!



hanmik, keep that inner child alive by representing some kid's artwork!



That's it for tonight, everyone! Come back tomorrow for more fun!

Do you think my actions are going too far, Nick?



Well that's good. Let's go drink.

I was watching this Squadron 42 cinematic trailer and I was thinking that the level of real-time graphics I expect from next-gen is like the scene from 1:52 to 2:03. If we get the higher specs from the rumours, unfounded as they may be, certain aspects may even be better, others worse like image quality in general, but should be doable.

Am I asking for too much? Or too little perhaps?

Asking too little. The only thing that game has got going for it now is its scale and the quality afforded to that scale. I would still take TLOU2 over it. I expect next-gen to be much better looking than both.

I was watching this Squadron 42 cinematic trailer and I was thinking that the level of real-time graphics I expect from next-gen is like the scene from 1:52 to 2:03. If we get the higher specs from the rumours, unfounded as they may be, certain aspects may even be better, others worse like image quality in general, but should be doable.

Am I asking for too much? Or too little perhaps?

Doesn't Hellblade 2 look better than that already? In any case, I'm expecting that level of graphics to be surpassed by holiday 2021 at the latest, even as amazing as that would be for real-time graphics. I'm expecting to be absolulely blown away by graphics beyond that time frame.
Slow down!

my Pro is way too loud.. but Im way too scared to pop it open and clean/apply new thermal paste. Scared some tiny finicky thing will break and it wont work at all again.
As loud as it is though, it's not as loud as my launch Xbox 360 Premium.. the same one that even cracked atleast 3-4 games before RROD'd.

Edit: Does anyone have a link to a Noob friendly guide to opening up the PS4 Pro and applying thermal paste? I mean.. one thats not going throw any curve balls after Im in the guts of the beast..
This is the guide I followed, was very clear (and includes putting it back together!)


I would watch as many as you can though, and it's worth a read through this Era thread with many tips:

Have you guys seen the Xbox one X being priced at 300 with a game recently. This was a day after the PS4 Pro was cut to 300 on amazon. I think With that action Microsoft will be willing to take loss to price match the PS5

tell me if I’m wrong but Microsoft is taking a lost with the Xbox One x at 300
It doesn't have to do with the PS4 Pro, since Amazon always undercuts MSRP. The Xbox One X no longer has a market purpose when the Series X is coming out, probably replacing the One X's $499.

It was $349 for a month already, now it'll be $299 for 2 weeks. That seems like a stock clearing move since it's in the middle of tax return season, and this is the period where the most consoles are moved in the US until the holidays. Move most of the One X stock now, as sales will collapse in April.

Yikes, Coastel got the short end of the stick on the avatar updates tonight. Something about a squishy seat that just makes me feel unsettled. Almost as bad as the greasy controller.

‘kinda feel like doing this, or just fuck it and trade my Launch pro in for a new one. (Is transferring games/saves much faster with both consoles together? I have 200mb broadband so downloads of my immediate games wouldn’t be that slow)

YES SUCK IT PRE-MARCHERS
I mean please give us something soon Sony


Also, fun little article from IGN on the XSeX here.

Taking production economics into account, we can speculate (wildly) that the CPU might cost around $100, the GPU around $300, and the SSD around $50. That’s $450 for the core components alone. When you take into account that Microsoft is almost certainly going to keep the Xbox One X (or rebrand it as something like the Xbox Series S) on the market as a lower-tier variant, my guess is the top-end Series X could cost as much as $600, possibly without a controller included.
Wild speculation indeed. With a $400 APU that's gonna be a tf printing machine. Not to mention they were on the no controller bandwagon first.
