Clearly loads of talent going there. Have to see if it actually materializes though.

The consensus seems to be a third-person Perfect Dark?

Yeah, according to Jeff Grubb it’s perfect dark.

Obviously it won’t have any of the shit storm that pony had with last of us 2 because Xbox fans aren’t as toxic when it comes to female leads. The ponies are a weird and vile bunch.

He doesn't game himself he just likes claiming other consoles don't have games.

Xbox would be perfect for him to be honest.
I'm playing NieR at the moment, really enjoyable so far and it has the best soundtrack I've heard in a long time. Then I'll probably just wait for the PS5 and start either Spiderman/MM or Demon's Souls, still undecided.

"the initiative" is a feckin terrible name, sounds like some kind of weird cult full of absolute basket cases.

I hope they update the avatar system soon, or just scrap it. Trying to make it not look like the smarmiest or campest fecker in the world is impossible. It’s also pointless and a somewhat neglected feature.

I appreciate that the Series X is getting all the attention for obvious reasons, but it would be nice to see more coverage of the Series S. Of the four upcoming consoles it's the one that appeals to me most and yet it seems to have been forgotten about in recent weeks.

The BBC video did say they'll be releasing a review about it soon. Lets hope so!

I was trolling you but since you asked (should be in the other thread really)
And what makes it next gen Vs a Spiderman MM or Gears 5?

Or just that Sony hasn't chosen to develop a PS4 version alongside it (even though it totally could have done)

So like Medium for Xbox?

Xbox and PC. Xbox doesn't have any exclusives.

Next gen is something new that could not have been done before. So yes, Medium looks next gen in its gameplay mechanic. Gears 5 looks same old but shinier, as does MM. Spiderman was a fecking great game though so....

All really poor examples when you have games like Half Life Alyx on the market.

There has been nothing "next gen" shown on either console tbh.

And do you actually think that Ratchet and Clank couldn't have been made (with some graphical compromises) on PS4?

Yeah 100% but VR doesn't really exist here (on Redcafe). Can't wait to check out HLA :drool:

Fam... This isn't the wind up thread are you seriously trying to tell me the warping and density made possible by the SSD is possible on PS4 Pro let alone PS4 from 2013? Gtfoh...

You guys have to drop this outdated idea of 'generations'. Consoles are basically PCs now, meaning slight improvements with each new upgrade.

Drop it like a diplodocus drops a dodo feasting on a McRib.

It's why Xbox is winning with service additions like Gamepass. Truly innovative ideas that will push us to the technology singularity.
