I wouldn't trust it even if it did a proper version (it has switcher or something, but never tried it). I still don't trust putting it into standby thanks to some of the more troublesome bugs.
I don't trust my PS5 to not feck up with one game at a time tbh.

I could take or leave dual sense tbh, its great in astro and Returnal but sometimes it you just get shit sounds coming out of a birthday card speaker that really take you out of the game. I don't like it in demons souls and hate it in wreckfest.

The whole pc/xbox argument is pointless considering MS's strategy with gamepass and crossplay. If you have a PC that is more powerful than an xbox then great and well done on having lots of money but then the Xbox probably isn't for you.
Can't you just switch off the controller speaker if it bothers you that much? I'm pretty sure you can on PS4, haven't got a PS5 yet but I'd expect the same functionality.

It's the triggers on wreckfest as well, which I can also turn off but then I just see a future of mostly disappointing implementations. Not sure I've noticed it on Demon's souls. Apparently it's nothing to write home about on Ratchet and Clank. It's amazing on Astrobot but that's because it's a tech demo for the controller.

It's a great controller but overhyped and the battery life is shocking which means I would probably need 4 controllers if I want to have a long co-op sesh with a mate, whereas with the xbox I just swap the batteries out with the ones I had charging. The main benefit I've found from having 2 dual sense controllers so far is that I can charge one and use the other which shouldn't really need to be a benefit.

This is the dumbest argument though because both consoles are really amazing. I reckon 2022 could be a vintage year for gaming.

What, games from Xbox studios that have a XSX version and aren't on Playstation?

Ori and the Will of the Wisps - 92
Forza Horizon 4 - 92
Halo MCC - 88
Wasteland 3 - 85
Gears 4 - 84
Gears Tactics - 82

In the next few weeks you can add Flight Simulator - 92 aswel.

According to Lambo the best of them all is Sea of Thieves but the metacritic for that is 69 so...
Who ever listens to critics? If I want to know if a game is something I'd want to play I'll watch a playthrough and see if the game is something I'd be willing to spend my money on.

Who uses TrueTrophies? PSNProfiles is where it's at. way more gamers tracked and trophies earned

4.95m gamers tracked
3.606bn trophies earned (more than TrueTrophies and TrueAchievements added together)
I'm fairly sure the numbers for the 'True' websites are registered users, might be wrong.

Ah okay - cheers didn't spot that. Looks like the Xbox one is 700k registered.

Sorry, my sarcasm seems to have been missed, this point was actually a joke. They are the same thing...

Yeah, the Xbox stats don't surprise me as far as I've known, TrueAchievements is the main site Xbox trophy hunters use and PSNProfiles/PlayStation Trophies are the main sites PS trophy hunters use.

I agree mate but you don't understand the likes of elvis and afro

They don't play games, they just want to know they have a good metacritic score and that'll do em

I'd actually agree trophies are better than achievements for what they do. Gamerscore/Achievements were ace during 2005-2009 360 days. Used to get gamerpics etc from them. Now they don't even separate DLC achievements like PlayStation. Been left to rot. Also something sweet about the platinum, 1000g doesn't work the same as games have varying amounts now with DLC. Shame really.

How does broken sword compare to the first three? I loved those, and have 5 sitting in my steam library.

I'm proud of you. Think how much you would have saved if PS had a gamepass of their own.

I preferred the earlier ones but it’s still a fun game to play through. Think 1 still remains my favourite - love the whole storyline with the Templars.

Christ you lot are struggling today. Some of us don't have time to play everything under the sun just to find out whether we'd like it or not. So I use consensus to trim the fat and narrow it down. I know what games I like, and if its got high scores then I pay more attention, low scores get less attention.

I asked you a while back to recommend some b tier games. That's when you show me what I've been missing all this time I've been doing it wrong.

The recommendations were slightly underwhelming....

They were just games I had played recently that were on gamepass if you look back.

Which of those PS5 exclusives have you (properly) played then..?
