    I'd like it if animals could talk. What would they say though?

    What would be a great announcement would be that the Series X would be VIVE comparable and they were releasing a number of games such as the new Half Life.

    That would be pretty damn cool.
    I have not got my hopes up. Fairly bizarre by MS. Unless they add USB C or a Display Port, I think they can't connect either. So I think the Quest might be only potential route which can run of USB A.

    Nothing really to see here if you have followed the previous leaks / rumours.

    But this seems to be something more concrete confirming there is a Series S coming.

    I hope they are not going to decrease the amount of available memory and CPU speed. That would make development for both models a lot harder.

    @Malek86 based on the DF article back in March itís suggested that the GPU would be scaled down, along with a reduction in RAM (16GB to 12GB) but the CPU would remain the same. This would make sense if theyíre targeting same game performance as on the X but at 1080p resolution.

    They need to turn some heads with that show. Literally everyone I know that has a passing interest in games have all said they're going for the station so far.

    They really do. I'll be getting xbox first as that's where my friends are but I'd really like some good 1st party games that aren't Gears, Halo and Forza.

    It still feels kind of weird that I know I'm going to be able to play any of the stuff they do show on my PC. It feels weirdly like the PS5 doesn't have a rival though I know it's a different story if you don't have a PC.

    I don't think there's much they can do about that and do MS even care about numbers sold anymore, they want gamers playing MS games anywhere and everywhere.

    I'm looking forward to seeing some new games, new IPs hopefully. I gave up on Halo long ago but could be tempted back in if it looks epic!

    Assume they won't mention the pricing yet?

    Yeah, this. I'm actually quite interested in some of their games - anything Forza-related for sure - but if it's all on PC, I just don't see myself picking up their hardware.

    I prefer the Xbox environment, but I have a One X, and they've said there will be no first party games exclusive to Series X for the time being. So I'm not seeing much reason to go with Series X over PS5.

    Won't Sony do the same though? Isn't this just standard practise for launch games to appear on the new and old console? MS are just trying to sell it as a positive in their press releases.

    Sony havenít previously, and theyíve been saying over and over that they favour proper generational splits. So no.

    Yeah, pretty much there isn't going to be true platform exclusives for like two years max on a grand scale. Cross gen is always the norm for a bit. Not everyone can afford to jump in straight away. I assume we might see the Lockheart console, now that could be interesting if it's aggressively priced.

    Iíd be really interested in a list of those first party cross-gen titles that are the norm.

    They've made a point of saying they is going to be games only available on PS5 from the off.

    So the xbox to 360 and 360 to to xbox one didn't have any cross gen titles for a bit? And I'm specifically talking about 3rd party not 1st.

    Maybe for third parties but I don't think any MS Xbox One launch titles were also on 360? Dead Rising 3, Forza 5 and Ryse definitely weren't. I don't think any Sony titles were either come to think of it. What did they have, Killzone, Knack, Infamous SS? All exclusive to PS4.

    No I was discussing 3rd party, of course 1st party is rarely cross gen. I'm not disputing that.

    @JamboWayOh it was me discussing first party, I must have been getting them mixed up with third party games.

    I'm still not convinced it's a deal breaker though, most first party games aren't great for a year or 2 anyway, and third party games are rarely revolutionary on a new console generation either.

    I might be talking rubbish though, I'm sure someone will point out a really obvious example of a brilliant launch game. The only relarively recent one I can think of was Breath of the Wild.
