Two giant balls and nothing to show for between them, he should be.
Anyway though, I'm on board with the early post there about it being a wasted moment and amount of resources. The problem between the PS3 and PS4 was that they got marginally prettier, but more could be done because of the better hardware. Now it's like they want prettier but with marginally better under the hood stuff game function which is the opposite. Style over substance sells to suckers and stooges who are fools and technophiles, but if the system just looks nicer but can't go a heap more than what PS4 does, then why the hell even bother? At $500 you could take that investment into a damn fine starter computer rig, and then as time chips away you could throw that better video card, or another 16GB of RAM at it and blow that stupid thing out of the water. Couple that with the total lack of DRM on various releases or GoG, let alone just what Steam gets anyway (most 3rd party games) in finer form no less on top of their weekly sales and crazy quarterlies, and it's like why bother? I don't regret selling the PS4 because of this as my 4 year old gaming laptop can kick the PS4's ass and match up nicely to the Pro. I'd rather buy another computer that'll last into the PS6 era.
I just spent over $400 upgrading my PC to a Ryzen 5 2600 + 16MB + SSD, that means new Mobo, new RAM. It does not include a new video card. It also does not include the cost of things I already own (Case, PSU, Windows license, KB/Mouse/Optical Drive/Game controller.
The PS5 looks like it's going to have a better Ryzen than that, better SSD than my new PC, and a better GPU than the ones I'm currently pricing out.
Point is, you simply can't build a PC with better specs than this for the same price if you are doing an honest apples-to-apples comparison
And the Steam/GoG sales are no better than the sales on PSN. They are about equal. The regular prices tend to be the same on both, and the sale prices tend to be the same as well. I keep an eye on both and try to get the best deal.
