NGL it’s crazy how long it taking them to get this on the PC.

Is all the cloud backend hardware still based on Xbox One/X tech? If so I could see waiting until thatís been upgraded to Series S/X hardware before you make a big push on PC streaming.

Iíve played all the way through gta 5 (first time I ever finished it), and Iím deep into gta4 now too on my sx. Both games play so much better with a smooth frame rate, I was always struggling to drive with the erratic FPS previously. The main benefit is the quick resume and the zero loading times though. I could never stand how long those rockstar games take to load at the start. Moving onto RDR2 once gta4 is completed.

Iím starting to realise how impatient I am and how much that affected me not playing games because of loading times/lack of quick resume in the past. Iím a new and improved gamer now.

Anyone played Outriders? Might get it off gamepass if itís good.

Outriders is very good but I also don't have very high standards and don't traditionally play looter shooters.

As someone that has played a bunch of looter shooters, Outriders is mediocre at best, but thereís some enjoyment to be had.

People seem to be excited for it but it looks like Cowboy destiny? Or maybe cowboy borderlands is a better comparison. Not really the kind of game I play and if I was going to I'd probably do one of the popular ones

GTA4 plays great now with 60fps. I'm enjoying it more than GTA5, the driving is great.

Does GTA5 have 60fps these days?

I think 60fps is coming later this year to current gen consoles.

I remember playing through GTA4 again recently, and then 5 right after that, and the difference in driving was kind of a shock. It definitely took a bit to get used to 5's driving.

Weird, I had the same thing happen a couple of times in the last few days. Maybe it's something with the latest OS version.

For future reference you can hold down the power button for about 5 seconds and it will hard power off.

Kojima is in talks with Microsoft about publishing his next game, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Phil hinted at it with his shelf a month ago, so uh, place your bets, death stranding sigma, not PHills, something else entirely?

Only to find out that now that I have a device that supports it, that my TV can't forward a Dolby Atmos signal through ARC to my soundbar.

So next on the list is a TV upgrade or a sound bar that doesn't introduce horrible input lag.

I have been a Playstation+Nintendo person for a long, long time - from PS1-4 (And at various points got more or less into PC gaming, right now I'm not in the mood to spend $3000 for a decent setup) but holy poo poo Xbox is really killing it this gen lol

The stuff that kept me on the Japanese consoles was largely Japanese games, I'm really into JRPGs, recently I've spent all of my gaming time on Monster Hunter Rise, I prefer Japanese action games like Devil May Cry over the western stuff/shooters. I bought Death Stranding day 1 because I really love the MGS series and will follow Kojima to whatever he does next. I feel like the Sony exclusives really got good during the PS4 era with Spiderman and Uncharted but they're not really system sellers to me, my favorite exclusives on the thing were Final Fantasy games and Persona.

My plan this gen was to just get a PS5+Series S, but if this keeps up when it comes to mid-generation refreshes I'm gonna be upgrading the S to a X+ or whatever the gently caress. Hell I already played Yakuza Like a Dragon on the S because it came out there first and that is the most Japanese game in existence

If it's any consolation, most of the best news won't actually come to fruition for some time yet. Stuff like FPS boost and the backwards compatibility functionality are really good right now but it'll be the next 2 to 3 years I think things will really be looking impressive.

Yeah as is there's plenty of rad stuff but tbh there's a few things I'm keeping on the back burner hoping for an fps boost enabling patch or an x/s upgrade.

I was trying to play Pillars of Eternity 2 on my One X and the 30-40 second load times had me uninstalling pretty quickly. Accelerated load time is the feature thatís causing my normal patience in upgrading to be in danger.

Oh yeah lol, we kept our one x for upstairs and I hardly even turn the drat thing on because the series x has spoiled me so bad for load times. Its practically back to the 16 bit console era, you just turn on a game and it goes.

Fun Shoe

Load times and multiple quick resumes for me have been way more impactful than graphics upgrades or the other usual new console stuff. Being able to sit on your couch and being able to start your console and resume where your save point is in wherever game in like 5 seconds makes me play games so much more often. It rules. You really begin to feel how much time you were wasting in the past looking at loading screens

I never liked intro movies, warning messages, or logo screens, but they super duper suck when you know the game loads in a fraction of the time it takes those things to fade in and out.
