PlayStation 5

Interesting. I’ll look into that and an extra SSD.

I was in the first five minutes. Which is weird for a guy who said he probably wouldn’t buy it. ;) I’m weak.

And I can pick it up today. That’s kind of ridiculous. As it needed signature and I’m not home I had it held. Nutty. It shipped from in state.

It’s been more than two months since our last State of Play – who’s ready for a new one? Tune in live next Thursday, June 2 for nearly 30 minutes of announcements and updates from the world of PlayStation.

We’ll have some exciting reveals from our third-party partners, plus a sneak peek at several games in development for PlayStation VR2. Watch over at Twitch or on YouTube starting 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern / 12:00am CET.

I didn’t know about the PS subscription changes. In two weeks I can access most the the major exclusive games through the subscription. Sweet timing. So I’ll see you in two weeks Demon Souls

I’ve given up entirely on a PS5. Maybe I’ll get one someday, who knows. I’ve kinda just stopped even thinking about it if I’m honest.

So my almost 2 year later five minutes impression. This feels more like a next gen console than the Xbox. The Xbox just feels like a badass computer crammed into a mini fridge. Which is awesome in it’s own right so not a complaint.

The controller is really neat but not nearly as comfortable for me as the Xbox. (Freak hands). But the haptic triggers are sweet…

Only really played two things Ghost of Tsushima, holy shit I’m glad I waited to play the directors cut. Amazing. And FIFA 22 as it was free. Holy shit who did the menus for that game? It may be one of the worst I’ve ever seen.

I may pickup the uncharted remaster and then hold tight for June 13th when the pass dumps everything on me.

Good to hear on Ghost director’s cut. I haven even fired that one up yet. I’m splitting time between Spiderman and Last of Us remasters. Both amazing. Daughter played Detroit more human last night and it is gorgeous. Perfect game for her as she struggles a bit with anxiety and has a hard time making decisions at times. That game gives her 4 with a timer that forces her not to overthink it and then to just live withe consequences. Of course she became a lying murderous android in the first sequence when she panicked and kept the gun and then lied about it. By the third sequence she was calm, cool and collected making decisions she really wanted with zero angst. It was a joy watching her play.

I really liked my Xbone 1x thing, especially before I got a new gaming PC but this thing feels more like a console and less like a gateway to an ecosystem. I don’t know just has something “special” about it I cant put my finger on. I think I love it and have zero regrets paying over MSRP.

Lastly, still haven’t told the wife but she came in the game room last night while we were playing it and just cocked her head sideways and said “hmm”. She just left and said nothing about it since then. I suspect some new furniture to be ordered this weekend to even it out :)

Ghost is a perfect game to showcase the console as it uses all the features. 3d sound, haptic feedback etc. I may just play that for the next two weeks. So much fun.

I hadn’t played the last Uncharted. Holy f is it fun. Looks amazing as well. I forgot how good the sony exclusive games were.

Astro’s Playroom is highly recommended to see what the PS5 controller can do. Don’t sleep on that.

Better be some rocking furniture :)

Memorial day sales help but good furniture is way expensive… She got some cloud top sectional thingie that looks like it will swallow us for movie nights and a new kitchen table set.

We are cleared for OLED! ;)

Already blasted through Uncharted over the holiday weekend. 14 hours… That seemed like the perfect length for a game like that. Some of the fights towards the end we’re a bit too much, but it’s very forgiving on the restart spots so eh. Now I’m playing the shorter expansion. I certainly have enough to keep me busy for 2 weeks when they change the pass structure on the 13th. I so badly want to play Demon Souls.

Uncharted Lost Legacy is a bunch of fun, too, if you haven’t played it.

I loaded up the intro to that before I went to bed. I figured I might as well close it out now or I may never go back. That one is only like 7-8 hours so I should be able to bang that out this week.

Sony’s State of Play thingie starts in a few minutes.

RE4 again.

I’m in for No Man Sky and Horizon Zero Dawn VR.
