the PS5 looks set to be rather large as compared to the previous versions and against its competitor, the xbox series x.

are we seeing a return to a superior console or atleast somewhat close to pc performance? i know the specs have been released but some times the specs alone aren't enough. i'm guessing the size is also due to the cooling needed for the high end parts. would like to hear some opinions!

Maybe. But don't expect it to last long lol. PC's are always upgrading, optimising and setting new records.

You may need to look on youtube at some of the enthusaist builds, they are comparable to super computers some of them lol.

sure PCs are better but games like fifa are far superior on console. anyway were talking about the ps5 here, as its common knowledge pcs are superior when u combine with high end components.

havent found much time to be on my pc lately but i'm going to have to build a new one soon. mines already 6 years old haha.

Actually there may be a complete change to online PC gaming in the next few years, as there are some services that will allow you to play high end games on low end PC's. Services such as 'Nvidia GeForce Now' and 'Google Stadia' are growing their list of available games and the technology is improving monthly.

This will negate the need to buy an expensive hardware just to play the latest games. Could be interesting, especially if it's made available to console too.

i think were far away from that though. at least at a global scale. those that u mentioned haven't really had a successful launch and imo it only suits couch gaming.

any other game (especially online) that even remotely leads to latency issues, will not be a good option to play on stadia. that will be its downfall until the world is equipped with good internet. i'm from Malaysia, with 300mbps internet (pretty decent for home use where i'm from) but also consider that most games don't run their server where i am. itll probably be singapore/hong kong and that affects us alot.

'share screening' as from stadia would multiply the input delays. good idea, but maybe the world is not ready for it yet.

{Ed001's Note - even with good internet there will always be a delay, so they will only ever be any good for casual gamers. Hardcore competitive gamers will always need their own rig to run. The issue with the PS5 will be the price I expect.}

agreed Tris, i think that's why they went with an additional option without the blue ray player. it is absolutely to make bank on the psstore.

i suspect they would rather take a loss on the console to sell higher volume, as those who purchase the cheaper model, will be spending their money on the psstore to get games. brilliant decision if u ask me, console lasts for years and they'll make more money that way in the long run.

{Ed001's Note - I have never understood why they never went down that route a long time ago.}
