Officially taking a break from achievements. PEACE!
PS4 Spider-Man can be upgraded to PS5, but doesn't come with Spider-Man Remastered; that costs an extra $20.

Also, PS4 save files don't transfer to the PS5. Bonus points: The remaster is not sold as a standalone.
At least ps5 has games to launch with
Like 2 games.
Wait, Sony hasn't even got so far as to offer cloud storage for save files yet?
Well, you do get some cloud storage w/PS+, but how that translates to PS4->PS5 transfers, I have no clue.
How much is Sony paying for the shill? ;^)
That's to be expected wit the stupid naming scheme. Retailers will have to deal with a lot of returns and pissed off customers, due to no fault of their own.

Lots of open-box XB1X will start popping up everywhere too.
its expected with the naming scheme but also the fact that it was up at least 45-60min after the preorders started amazon had NOTHING Series X related up on the site
I'm sorry, but that's kind of funny.
To be fair, the naming scheme is really confusing. Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series S...
See? I can't even get it right. Xbox Series X.
Hahahaha caveat emptor
Nothing wrong with getting an extra Xbox one at the home :)
The sales had too have been due to people buying gifts... I can't imagine too many buying for themselves being so dumb that they couldn't see the difference in the images
IMO it's click baitey...the percentage is only the sales POSITION not actual sales and the X has been discontinued for like 2 months so they weren't exactly selling many
Plus if it was that bad why haven't we seen the same spike in One S sales? Just the media being biased against anything Xbox does 🤷♂️
And PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 is so much easier to differentiate 🙈
Good point, Chunkeh. Could be legit people picking up an X1 while everyone else goes next-gen.
One X and Series S probably quite similar for non gamers
Yeah had the same issue with target. Luckily started on microsoft store. Ended up going through.
Sasha pm me about me giving you one POTENTIALLY

PS5 fiasco redux. Other retailers are selling out. I did see Series X available on Best Buy, but rather get it from MS Store for rewards.
Amazon went live and crashed in 30 seconds. Pretty crazy that it failed so fast.
Most people I've spoken to had the best joy through MS Store. GAME in the UK was also pretty decent. Sorry to hear, buddy.
GAME was weird I got past it's queue thing at around 7:30 and then it was pretty painless. But guy at work tried same thing like 2 mins later and never got past the queue
Game didn’t work for me, sat in a 90 minute queue to be sent to a site in work page
AO and Argos did the job tho
MS store I had buckets of errors both through Xbox and computer, worked for an S in the end. Some websites seemed to bury their links as well. Amazons was instantly sold
Out for me by the time it appeared
Yeah Argos seemed to be the most stable and solid out of all the UK retailers from what I saw.
Eh. I'm in no rush to pre-order. As long as I'm able to snag a console around the time Hitman 3 comes out, I'm good.
I would bet money that you will be able to walk into a store and buy it on launch day.
Certainly this year.
More of less the same thoughts. As long as its there for Cyberpunk, I'm ok.
Don't see any point of preordering when both consoles are offering so little. I can wait.
Well since everything is cross platform it’s more boxes to boost with :) Launch line up is pretty weak tho
I had the same issue at Target, but then 10 minutes later got an email thanking me for my order. Saw the charge authorization on PayPal so I think it went through.
^had the same thing happen with target. Never saw a confirmation through the fiasco. Got an email and it’s been charged.
I would have preferred Target. I get a 5% discount, and if I'm able to get into All Access between now and November, I can return this one (or sell it).
(Yeah, I'd probably sell it.)
Less hands in the pot to leak out, same thing happened with the other purchases Microsoft did. They were not leaked either.
It is usually never the people at the top who leak things to the gaming media but usually developers

I agree. For the Bethesda thing only the top executives, negotiators and a bunch of lawyers knew. For the S you have a ton of people in R&D, manufacturing, marketing...et
Based on some of the Marketing teams tweets the leak was far from intentional. They were devastated.
Remember that leaks almost always have a negative impact on many persons in the process especially marketing. But it only takes one person
I'm in love with Microsoft.
A graw leaderboard reset maybe?

Fuck it, go all in: Patching all unobtainable/discontinued achievements, making every Xbox game ever BC and adding achievements to original Xbox games
Re-list all delisted content!
Stunner: Microsoft pulls a hostile takeover of Sony.
I just want the damn Rogue Warrior servers back on
Oh, wow. Can I find this easily under subscriptions?
No, it's purchasing an Xbox Series X ($35/month) or Series S ($25/month), but it builds in the Game Pass price. It works with preorders in most countries.
Heck yeah! I'm digging that, but it also explains why I couldn't see this rate with my current setup, haha.

There is a couple of new annoucements coming this week, unless they decide to save them for the release window of next gen
What's next? EA? Can you imagine Sony having to develop everything in-house? What would they have left?
This is great for next year, but short-term I don't think it it will affect console sales since most people won't be aware of this or understand it.
They will when they want to buy Elder Scrolls and realize that they can't, or can get it with Game Pass for free.
I'm going to need a minute...
What would Sony have left? Just all the sequels to multiple huge exclusive games they put out this gen. But Microsoft will definitely do great when Elder Scrolls 6
comes out in 2027 for the Xbox Series Q.
Hopefully they will get Bethesda to use a decent game engine like Unreal 4 instead of the jankfest that is Creation now.
Need to finish my trip to Sag A so I can get to work on these! 200 more jumps or so, then I'll probably just self destruct to get back to the bubble lol
SO HAPPY that this popped.

Just 24 more to go! - Wishing you luck on getting them all
Thanks. Got #2 this week as well, so down to 23!
Oh my goodness, Community Goals are back?!
My favorite improvement on consoles is moving to an internal power supply. I hated the bricks that came with the 360 and the original Xbox One.
Oh goodness yes. The biggest problem with carrying my One around in the GAEMS case was the brick. I love my S and X.
Enjoyed this DLC less than the first 2 - Last one's really short by comparison
Yeah, this one was just okay. I really liked Tentacles, but I haven't played the last one.
I just wish they hadn't borrowed Wastelands 3 character designs for this DLC. Custer luck is absolutely great though
Everything borrows. Borderlands and Fallout borrow from Wasteland, which borrowed from Terminator and Mad Max.
Those were inspired by others going back to A Canticle For Leibowitz and further.
Sucks for them lol

Could probably say the same about series x. Anything exclusively coming out on that?
Why is everyone hating Sony for this? Does Xbox Series X have a single exclusive?
Lol JumboWario came with the shots
Yeah and I’m not salty at all! Wasn’t Forza Motorsport 5 like the only exclusive for box one?
@JumboWario Mostly because Sony and it's fanboys gave xbox a ton of shit for keeping most of it's games cross-gen and now they're doing the same.
Well ya it would be stupid to alienate such a large audience. There are so many PS4s out there you wouldnt want to drop support for them right away
Come on, the XSX has...*checks notes*.. Observer: System Redux as a launch title. Smell the GTA-like sales that'll spawn!
"Old games don't play on PS5" Huh? PS5 is BC with PS4. But yes this basically gives me no reason to buy PS5 until a real next gen game ships.
Both MS and Sony have failed hard going into next gen. But hey, they're saving me money so I guess I should thank them.
My thoughts exactly. But when I said this to some of my friends I was criticised. When I asked them why they would pre order, they said ‘to have the latest tech 🤷♂️‘
I think that’s a fair reason for some. It’s the same reason millions of people buy a new phone every year.
I just know I will pick up a digital edition at some point. It looks better and is cheaper.
Anti social yutes
During the first year at least, more people will own the previous gen than the new one. It's stupid to forego potential sales to millions of customers just to have....
An exclusive for the new gen to push some hardware sales. This is actually smart.
Exactly. ALL of their games shouldnt support last gen but spiderman has a super wide appeal and was a great game. Horizon as well. If they just did those 2 it'd be smart
Especially that there will likely be a limited number of new consoles at launch, especially around the holiday season.
The difference is that Xbox hasn't been touting exclusives like Sony has. PS is doing it because without new games, the PS5 is essentially useless.
Jim Ryan been lying his ass off these last few weeks. Nice to see people finally see Sony have gotten complacent
Nothing wrong with having games cross gen. It make business sense as they will sell more...but why say you aren't doing cross gen?
Still getting high PS and Xbox next gen consoles it's just nice to see Sony finally getting negative press for their BS
I haven't bought Sony since 1) my PS3 hard drive bricked and lost all of my save files, and 2) my Vaio had a power issue where it just turned off in the middle of work.
As in, off. Not save, not shut down, off. Consistently. On top of that, yes, Sony has gotten extremely complacent.
It's not stupid to push new hardware sales, otherwise why make a new console at all? Next gen exclusives exist for a reason. You gotta make people jump ship eventually.
I personally don’t really enjoy playing on PlayStation, but I do enjoy a lot of the exclusives. If I can play it on Xbox, I do.
Xbox hasn't been touting exclusives because is has almost none of any value, not because they did it voluntarily. It's a strategy born our of being last place.
You make them jump ship when you have enough consoles to meet demand and enough buyers to offset the cost of a game being exclusive.
It all comes down to money and in the first year, especially with the current economy, you can't bank on early adopters.
Tons of consoles have launched with major next gen exclusives. Xbox One did. PS4 did.
I'm pretty sure companies like Microsoft and Sony can offset the costs to have their first party studios make a true next gen exclusive.
There's the other side. Besides Naughty Dog, what serious studios does Sony have in-house? Then compare that with the Xbox acquisitions over the past few years...
??? Guerrilla, Insomniac, Santa Monica Studios, Sucker Punch, Media Molecule? The studios that made smash hits during this gen? MS has paled in comparison. Them making
acquisitions is merely playing catch up.
If you liked Slayaway Camp, you'll like this. Same game, with the same stupid grind at the end.
But does anyone have a guide for it yet?
Nice game!!! check here for a walkthrough https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywJ4uTy22UI&t=3082s
It's a pretty straightforward game you don't need much of a guide for. I think I made solutions for anything that isn't intuitive
You can ask for the solution on every level of the game without penalty.
I’m a lazy boy. I love having a guide I can just watch and then go at my leisure without watching the solution in game and stuff. Just me though.
Soon as I saw this I had to have it. Slayaway Camp was a ton of fun.
Take a shot everytime She Mugs For The Camera
That's the same number of active neurons I have, what a coincidence
Damn, I was afraid something had happened once I realized he hadn't been online for a few weeks.
Yeah. It's a shock.
