    64gb is £349

     

     

    Son of a bitch, I'm in!

     

    Seriously, that's ridiculous value when you compare it with the Switch.

  2. I don’t really give a crap about method acting. All I know is that There Will Be Blood is my favourite film of all time, and that Daniel Day-Lewis put on an absolute acting masterclass in that role.

    That’s ridiculous. Just insane value for money there. You could quite easily not spend another penny on that console until 2024.

     

    Mad. 


    I honestly don’t think I will now.

     

    It’s 100% a Gamepass machine for me.

  4. Bought this on day 1, but only just had the chance to start it today.

     

    Good lord, these are probably the cleanest and most crisp visuals that I’ve ever seen in any game, ever. Absolutely gorgeous! 
     

    It’s definitely the first game I’ve played that feels a true generational leap forwards in every aspect. 
     

    I’m playing in performance + ray tracing mode at 120fps and it’s glorious!

    I don't understand what this means - how do you do it and what does it cost?


    You purchase 3 years worth of Xbox Live Gold. 12 month membership is available at CD Keys for £40, so I bought 3 of those and redeemed the codes on the Xbox Store. Total cost £120
     

    https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/memberships/12-month-xbox-live-gold-membership-xbox-one-360-eu-cd-key

     

    Then you follow the following link and convert your Xbox Live membership into Gamepass Ultimate for £1.

    That’s all there is to it. 3 years of Gamepass Ultimate for £121.

    Absolutely.

    Only reason I got 1 year is that it just sounded too good to be true. Got to wait until it's expired now before I do it again.

    Try Ori and the Will of the Wisps out if you haven't already, one of the best looking games I've ever played.


    Will do. I played Ori and the Blind Forest on Switch and really enjoyed it. 
     

    First 2 games I’ve downloaded are Octopath Traveller and Forza Horizon 4.

    Not sure if it still works, but I bought a year of gold and converted it to game pass for £1. Can stack up to 3 years.


    Just done this now. Bought 3 years of Xbox Live Gold for £120 from CD Keys, and converted it to Gamepass Ultimate for £1. 
     

    3 years of exclusive games, day 1, in addition to the rest of the back catalogue… for the price of 2 retail games. It beggars belief how they can afford to do this, but I ain’t complaining. 
     

    Just a shame that you can only stack 3 years because I would happily have stacked 10 if I could.

    Housemarque have just been signed to Sony. Makers of returnal which is meant to be a very good. Be nice to see what comes from them with Sony's money and management backing them now. 

     


    Housemarque and also Bluepoint. Two very good acquisitions for Sony, and makes sense since they’ve been working together exclusively for years.

     

    I really want to play Returnal, but put off by the £70 price. I’ll wait for a sale or it to hit PS+ or PS Now.

    Not sure if it helps mate, but a couple of months back I bought 1 month GamePass Ultimate off CDkeys for £12. I found that if I logged into my Xbox account on my PC redeemed the code on the web browser, by turning on auto-renew it turned the 1 month into 2 months for free. 
     

    Not sure if that’s still working, but might be a good deal while you look for a better one. 
     

     

    Obviously I turned off auto-renew ten seconds later lol 


    Have you got the Series X mate? 
     

    Mine has just been dispatched now from Amazon. Wasn’t expecting it for another 10 days. 

  9. Just ordered a Series X for myself on Amazon. 
     

    Not being delivered until 9th June though. 
     

    I have both a PS5 and Switch that get almost zero use because I don’t have any free time to play them, so this is a completely pointless purchase for me lol

     

    But bugger it. All three consoles for the win! 

  10. It’s a great game to watch on YouTube from people who know what they’re doing. Especially on their ridiculous PC rigs with max settings. 
     

    Not sure it’s ever something that I would ‘play’ myself. But great to watch and I certainly appreciate that it’s a technical marvel.

    Actually reviewing slightly lower than I expected from what I’ve seen of the game. I was kind of expecting 10/10 from all over. 
     

    Not moaning. Still incredible scores and looks hands down the best PS5 exclusive so far. 


    It’s about what I was expecting to be honest. 
     

    This genre of game generally seems to have a limit of around 90 as far as Metacritic goes, unless it’s a new mainline 3D Mario game which is the exception. 
     

    Still, 89 from 97 (currently) reviews is outstanding for any game. 
     

    I have watched a few reviews and the Digital Foundry tech analysis, and I’m completely sold that it’s going to be an awesome game, and a real showcase for the PS5.

  12. This looks absolutely staggeringly good in my opinion. Everything about it. The gameplay, the graphics, the environments, the animation, the voice acting, the colours, how seamless and instant the transitions are between areas. 
     

    Honestly, one of the most impressive looking games I’ve ever seen. 
     

    Day 1. Can’t friggin wait!

    Sweet! 

    Some cracking ps games lately


    Yeah, they have really stepped up the quality recently. I’m going to subscribe again I think after a couple of years hiatus.

    Yeah I remember it from the PS5 reveal and it caught my attention, I'll probably pick it up on sale if I get it though.

     

    It's up for pre-order for £32.99, which I think is an excellent price point to be fair for how it looks.

     

    Presumably it will be an 8-10 hour game at most for that price, but that's not a bad thing in my opinion.

    Man, this game just looks fantastic! Absolutely gorgeous! 
     

    I was hoping it would be out in March, so a bit disappointed it’s now August. 100% day one purchase for me though.

    Why don’t they simply put it behind one of those CAPTCHA things at checkout, where you have to pick all the squares with a traffic light or motorbike etc? 
     

    Isn’t the whole point of them to stop this sort of thing?
