    Consoles since the PlayStation days worked via PowerPC architecture and these new ones are now x86. That's why I was comparing them to PCs because in that sense the new consoles are just souped-up versions of their previous counterparts which explains why cross-compatibility is so universal...

    As close to PCs as these consoles are... imagine telling PC gamers they don't want games to work on older hardware because it's somehow "holding" back the new games. It's complete BS.

    I have a really big problem with PlayStation and more specifically Sony with how they're handling the cross-platforming between the previous generation and the current. First let me say that I love my PS5, but the way that Sony is handling the game situation I feel is REALLY rubbing me the wrong...

    Apple recalls M1 due to screens cracking

    This is what happens when you become a lifestyle-brand tech company. You start creating products for form over function. Apple for years now has been in a race with itself to make the thinnest everything for absolutely no reason. They just don't know what else to advertise in their products...

    Returnal (PS5)

    Can someone help me understand what "Roguelike" is, and to what respects Returnal is "Roguelike?" The only thing I've found online about what a "Roguelike" is is that there are procedural generated.... things. However I am not sure that has anything to do with Returnal itself. I have the game...

    I signed up at least 2 weeks ago I would say. But it says that there is no guarantee you get an invite by signing up. Also rumor has it that the official firmware update that includes the SSD upgrade option will be rolling out anyway later this month... But who know really other than Sony and...

    The Xbox One and Series X if in Instant On mode would update the games when the Xbox is not even on. I had the Xbox One X and play the Series X frequently since launch and i've never once ran into a issue where I turn a game on and can't play it because there is an update. In fact, with the...

    Yeah so the Xbox lets you preload literally any game... so if you say preordered a physical game on Amazon and they are shipping it soon you can download it before you get the disc and once you get the disc you're good to go... especially in the case of GameFly and upcoming Game Pass titles it's...

    Well with the purchase of Bethesda and the existing/upcoming 1st party exclusives coming to Xbox the "no games" argument is going to be moot... Starfield, Halo Infinite, Horizon 5, Hellblade 2, Stalker 2, Psychonauts 2, and a lot of others... I just got my PS5 last week, and between the...

    So am I missing something? Why is it that if you only have a PS4 at the moment, and REALLY want a PS5 but just can't find one... why can't you start buying PS5 games now and play them on your PS4 until you can find a PS5? Like Horizon Forbidden West is an example. If you buy the $70 PS5 version...

    Sony actually achieved Nintendo-quality platforming with Astro's Playroom. As someone who has owned every Xbox, Nintendo, and Sony console ever released I can not express the sheer joy I had while playing Astro's Playroom. It was akin to when I played the last couple Mario games, and...

    Well that really sucks. Luckily I don' t really have any games on PS5 I want to play at the moment. First will likely be the PS5 version of Death Stranding at the end of next month. I am sure we will see updates and UI improvements over the coming months and years, but I really hope they get...

    Hey guys so I have a couple questions regarding the PS5 which just confuse me... 1. Is there seriously no way to organize the home page? The PS4's UI allowed me to create folders and alphabetize games in said folder. Here all I am seeing is a long list of games. 2. Are the games that are on the...

    I'm in no hurry to get one for sure. There are no games I want to play on PS5 at the moment, but I have $300 in Amazon credit sitting in my account that I got through a special program I am in through my employer. I was going to wait to look for one to buy once I get $500 in Amazon credit, but I...

    Suggest a linear-ish FPS/3rd-person game with campaign?

    So I finished Doom Eternal recently and loved it. I started playing Rage 2 and while the shooting feels great I don't have it in me to play a open-world game, and just feel like a lot of companies are making "open-world" games to artificially pad a game with extra "play time." I am playing Gears...

    Crysis Remastered Trilogy

    Crysis 3 to this day still looks incredible, but fuck me is it boring. I tried playing it again recently and I just couldn't stick with it. Honestly I just couldn't get into any Crysis game after the first one for some reason.

    DOOM Eternal - Official

    So I finished Doom Eternal completely including the DLCs... and ooooh man. This very well could be the greatest shooter I've ever played. And it's odd I am saying that because I hated Doom Eternal the first two times I tried to start to play it. I didn't like being forced to play the game the...

    Skyblivion: Official Thread

    Modding has always been a staple of Elder Scrolls games, so if the call does come that Skyblivion has been shut down we'll know it was from Microsoft. However I think Microsoft has earned a lot of respect from gamers ever since Phil Spencer took over with their gamer-first mentality. But we will...

    NEW CPU Benchmark for Gamers and Overclockers 3-D Mark

    Same here. My last PC was the first and last PC of mine I would ever overclock.

    Tom Clancy's X-Defiant

    Siege 1 is still making them too much money to invest in a follow-up. Is it like 7 or 8 years old now? Feels like Siege has been out for forever.
