So we have to wait 7 years for a next gen game now? :smirk:
Well no, from first party developers; Naughty Dog also released Uncharted 4 and the Lost Legacy, Guerilla Games released Kilzone Shadow Falla and HZD, Santa Monica Studio releases GOW and Sucker Punch productions released an Infamous Game, and Ghost of Tsushima.

That's not including first party published; Spider-Man PS4, Ratchet and Clank PS4, Bloodbourne, Iron-Man VR, The Order 1886

That's also not including Driveclub which I won't include as Sony shut that studio down.

PS4 has arguably been the best ever console for first party games. Maybe Vs the Wii?

But anyway,

Xbox is definitely the better machine at this stage.

120 fps on Enhanced Xbox One titles.
Variable refresh rate.
Store Series S|X games on a hard drive.
No constant crashes.
Just more horsepower on CPU and GPU
Expandable storage
Just a shame it doesnt have any games
The footage I’ve seen most multi plat games like Ass Creed are running better on PS5 and the new PS games put it about 10 years ahead of the Xbox already.

Xbox have done well in upgrading older games but up against what Sony are offering? nowhere near for me.

I tried it for an hour and it was exactly the same.

Played quite a bit of Spiderman. Done all the towers and backpacks.

There's a lot of rumour that rest mode, external HDDs and network transfers played a part so I've avoided all and not really had crash problems. Maybe coincidence.
Maybe, but it's entirely possible. MM crashed quite regularly and the remaster has crashed twice on her today. I think it's highly likely to be teething issues related to the power options/standby.

As for your noise, that is very likely a lot to do with location. Not just the air flow, but also echoing around that wood and vibrating on the shelf will all amplify the noise. Have you tried it outside and upright to see if it's the same?

I was only joking.

PS4 was killer for exclusives for sure. It's that backwards compat combined with PS+ that is really compelling draw for those who missed them by being on Xbox.

But the Series X was stood upright in the same location, and the One S and PS4 were both played in the same compartment that the PS5 is in now (towards the end I had both in there together which obviously wasn't ideal)

This PS5 is louder than both those old consoles playing things like Warzone which push them hard, even when the PS5 is in rest mode.

The Series X in the same position is genuinely inaudible it's incredible.

Think I've just been unlucky with the specific console I got to be honest. Will see about getting a repair/replacement in a few months when things settle down.

Yeah mate, might have lost the build quality lottery on that one. It happens.

Once again I'll say it though, the X is far better designed for airflow. Genuinely impressed with it so far.

Hard to complain when I have another next gen console and plenty are struggling to get 1 aswel! Just one of those things

It plays games and plays them well so it's grand for now, just a tad annoying

Did you check the fix linked in this thread? Apparently it could be a loose sticker near a fan inside or something :lol:

10 years :lol:

And by most multiplat games you mean that single one, which is due to optimisation. What about WZ being in 120 on the X but 60 max on the PS5?

:lol: does your Mrs do all the DIY in your house?

I wouldn't be 100% opening up a new console tbh, would have to watch 50 videos of people opening them first just to be sure!

Having to open up your brand new PS5 just so it doesn’t make a racket :lol:

Can’t believe they still think they have a leg to stand on.

They’re not even ‘A list‘ exclusives and are still better than anything Xbox will put out for the next 12 months. In the coming months we get Ratchet and Clank and Gran Turismo that will be about 6-7 solid exclusives within the first few months......how long will it take Microsoft to release 6-7 solid exclusives?

One thing that Microsoft has over Sony at the moment is their support of 1440p, pissing me off not being able to play on my monitor.

Nah, taking these things apart isn't tough. Just takes a little care is all. But I wouldn't do it on a new machine anyway, not until it gets worse that it.

That's a hard YES! :lol:

I'm bored of the fanboy shite now :lol: was funny for about a week.

Now it's just a yawnfest.

Just give us actual news and gameplay footage and stuff.

All you going through 20 articles to find one bad article about something to do with the console you're not in love with.

Yes or her Dad. I can set up any electronics obviously but that's about it.

Every time her Dad is round doing something I stand by awkwardly offering help. I'm just getting in the way and slowing him down and we both know it, but I feel like a dick sat somewhere else whilst he does work on my house.

There was that time she asked him to come round to put a clock up though, which was obviously the worst moment of my life.

I remember when @esmufc07 and @Pexbo mocked me when I said the series x was designed better. You both should apologise.
I’ve always maintained that I don’t know shite about the internal stuff and fanboy jokes and banter aside I’m primarily focused on games and that’s why I’ve always prefer PS.

:lol: poor bloke must shake his head everytime he sees you and wonder how his daughter ended up with such a poor specimen of a man!

I get it though, I used to be shite at DIY, still am tbh, but I just give it a go nowadays, enough videos on YouTube to get you through just about anything. Best in your own house too because you can take your time over the littlest of tasks.

Maybe not the right place to ask this but reckon someone here will know the answer.

I'm going to have both Xbox and ps5, and have a projector and a TV, however I want a hdmi switch so I can switch between screens for each console, so would need 2 in ports I think? And 2 out ports? Preferably a one with a remote too.

Also, I'd want to be able to use both at the same time, one on proj and one on tv. Is there a switch which makes this possible?
