I'm really excited for the new Xbox and PS5, can't wait to buy them in 2022!
In the meantime I'll be busy playing all the five-dollar-a-pop games from the (now still) current gen.
@fribbledom they're coming out in 22?
No, they're coming out in a few weeks. I'm just not going to buy them until the first or second price drop.
@fribbledom ahhh that makes sense
@fribbledom The used X360 market used to be a treasure trove for me. Every Christmas my other half would just buy me a load because they were so cheap.
Same! X360 is easily my most favorite console to collect games for.
@fribbledom I'm hoping that a lot of my games will be backwards compatible with the new X too.
There are so many games I've been meaning to re-visit and actually finish.
I still have the X360. It's just sat gathering dust since I got a PS4, so I could just plug it back in...
Hmm, I have a feeling this weekend is going to be incredibly unproductive.
@fribbledom i used to buy consoles when they first came out. this generation i waited until the mid generation revised model. next generation i might not buy it until it's fully been superseded.
@fribbledom I feel like 90% of new games will probably actually be just great on my work PC (as long as I put a GPU inside a bit higher spec than my work actually requires). Game Pass, uPlay+, EA Play etc making some new AAA games cheap digital rentals all exist on PC so it's really only PS5 exclusives (& Sony games aren't fast to arrive on PS Now rental) that'll eventually tempt me.
@fribbledom The PS5 is attractive, but I can't think of a game that's a system-seller for me. Back in the Xbox days, it was Halo. With the PS4, it was Dark Souls III and Bloodborne combined. I'll have to look at the upcoming games again, but I've looked at it before and I don't remember any, so they must not have been that compelling.
As a Linux PC gamer, sometimes I get the PS4 version of a game (DSIII) for compatibility.
@fribbledom "That's my secret, Captain, I'm *always* playing 3-10 years old games for cheap."
In my case, I've bought some games on GOG which I didn't find time to play when they came out...
Even though I avoid Steam because I hate DRM and monopolies, thanks to GOG I have the same issue of having bought more games than I can possibly play through, for at least a few more years. Thanks to GOG, I've also found and bought some indie titles which I now prefer over a lot of AAA fare.
@fribbledom I'm still hoovering up £3 DS games from the generation-before-last!
