I suppose this is the sequel to a thread I made back in the Summer about the PS5. Now we are closer to the next gen consoles launching, and have definite prices and release dates for PS5 and Xbox, I am seeing hype go through the roof and I just dont understand it. Both consoles have almost no games to make them stand out from their immediate predecessors, and in fact many games that are being touted as system sellers for their respective platforms are coming to PS4/Xbox One, making it almost pointless to buy a new console to play those games unless you have a fetish for wasting money. I suppose PS5 fares slightly better than Xbox in this regard because it does have at least some exclusive games, but the fact the main exclusive launch title is a remake of a niche PS3 game is quite damming to me. PS5 games will cost $10/£10 more, neither console has nearly enough storage space to store many games at once, which will mean shelling out for potentially expensive external storage solutions, and both consoles are very expensive, more expensive than PS4/Xbone at launch. All these things are further nails in the coffin for these systems, at least for the first year or so. I just do not see the logic in buying either of these glorified doorstops beyond simply being suckered in by cheap marketing hype. Agree? Disagree? I would love to hear your thoughts.
