The current console experience

The PS5 price comes in at $499 ( £449 / AU $749.95 ) When someone just spent the big bucks ($299.00) for a PS4 it is probably not in their budget to drop $500 on a newer model.
I remember my parents crying and moaning every time Xbox came out with a newer version and my brothers demanded it for Christmas…lol.

Perhaps this game shouldn’t have made to the consoles…

That’s alot less than what I paid for my GPU to get a better framerate. So I’m not suggesting anything I haven’t done myself :grin:

Same here (RTX 3090 lol)

My experience on ps4 pro was great, as was my friends on the ps4. Xbox I believe still has issues.

You’ll need a next gen console to load in faster since Sony and Microsoft waited til now to use SSD’s and more processing power.

You can swap in an ssd on ps4 easily.

On Xbox you have to buy an external but processing speed is still an issue.

The point remains that the “console experience” depends on the console. Xbox has many issues at present that are being actively worked.

My wife and I are playing on our year and a half old ps4 not really having any console problems we play pve on official and private server. She experiences more loading problems than I do and with more than one game. Also her tv doesn’t stream Netflix well I probably should dig into it. Might be related.

Well my dear JJ the problem is bigger than 500 Euro . I Believe that giving this amount every 7 to 10 years for a new console is not a great expense . People give 1.000 Euro every year for a new selfphone ,so I don’t think 500 is a problem :wink: . The greatest issue is that they don’t exist in the market . The greatest Electronic stores didn’t even deliver the pre orders of September 2020 . If we had consoles available we wouldn’t stay this way , believe me we would have the consoles already . Our friend @Lionsraws is not lying , PS4 Conan becomes every day harder and harder . My only disagreement is that I don’t blame funcom for Sonys faults . All this time they send less than 1.000 pieces in my country … really ??? They cannot produce consoles ? In Japan people suicide because they don’t have jobs and they cannot hire more personel … really ???
I play on this console since 1996 , I support Sony 25 years now and at this time I feel betrayed from this company , this is my point of view .
My PS4 console is almost broken , it sounds like a helicopter in my living room and the last days it gets overheated all the time . I am desperated , I can’t play without log in and out 20 times per day .Why should I go and pay 400 Euro for PS4 pro for three or four months ?
I know that I can always download the game on my laptop , still … I love
my couch girl and my 50inch flat screen , I am a man of bad habits after all :wink: .

There may be dust and such on inside that the fan may be clogged up with and you need to use (I use my air compressor at distance to not destroy hardware) air can after you take it apart ( look for a video on YouTube) as the console will over heat and damage it over time or start a fire (when it keeps freezing up on game you will enjoy the burn for a few seconds them panic when on fire)

Thank you m8 , I will try it today ,thanks a lot :+1: .

You do realize that most modern TVs have DVI and HDMI connections, yes? Before I left college I was using an older model flat screen as my monitor with my PC. It worked great.

Exactly why I would recommend just buying a gaming PC. Sony and Microsoft are in the console market because its cheap and they will never put any serious electronic thru-put into these small boxes.
I actually had to upgrade my old PC to play in ultra, but it was worth the 2k I spent.

Wow 25 years with Sony and you’re just now feeling betrayed ? I jumped ship after the 2010 hacking of the whole Sony network that caused congress to get involved.

The idea people will need to buy ps5/Xbox next generation to play a game sold as a ps4/Xbox 1 seems kind of sheisty.

Well you dont have to. It plays on ps4 just fine and xbox has an intense focus at Funcom until its back in shape, as mentioned before.

I know, but some are suggesting that as the fix. But that should not be the fix at all.

that’s how backwards compatibility looks like in practice, helluva headache for something completely not worth it
