    I think this is actually unlikely. The input lag will always make streaming inferior, and supposedly makes VR impossible.

    Unless the future is slow/turn based and non-vr, there will be plenty of market left for physical PC and consoles.

    Sitting away a couple of meters from a TV makes the distinction from 4K to FullHD hard. But I see why hardware vendors gotta keep making money.

    Technicaly they are right, you will buy a ps5 for 500$ and for next 7 years you don't have to upgrade, now build a PC in 2020 with PS5 specs and you will go way over 500$

    No. They are wrong.

    You will buy a PS5 for 500 $
    For the next 7 years, if you want to be able to play online, you will pay a subscription fee. I'll generously say it's 60 $ per year. It is an incredibly basic feature that should be free anywhere, but is not on consoles.
    In the end you have spent, 950 $ on a piece of equipment that is outdated. Without counting the games.

    And THEN there is the price of the games, which is around 80€ in France for a new game, and only 10 less online. That is ridiculous. In the meantime, the various competing stores on PC, Humble Bundle, and let's not even mention piracy if you are fucking broke drove the PC games prices very low. And let's not even talk about the retrocompatibility or superior catalogue.

    Console gaming is expensive as fuck.

    I bought a Devil May Cry 5 Steam key on release for 35€. On console, it's 60€.

    Some people have been saying consoles are doomed for 10 years, just like others have said PC gaming is doomed. People love being chicken little and warning you massive change is coming soon, but change is a slow motherfucker that takes a lot of time. I'd guess Stadia and shit like it will take over eventually, but it's gonna take a while for a variety of reasons.

    I'm also waiting for Alien. I was surprised to see it selling for so little. 20 dollars for a 4K disc isn't much, though. I think the 5 dollar bargain bins at Wallmart and Best Buy have skewed people's perceptions of how much a movie must cost.

    European prices. Games are $60 in America here. Physical media might be dead on pc but still exists on console. A quick Google search shows you how low you can buy games on consoles.

    I'll believe the specs people are assuming when I see them. No way they launch over $500, and no way the sky-high shit people are thinking comes in under that.

    And games will still be scaled for the lower option so it won't matter.

    Yea on consoles you actualy own the game, because you plop in the disc and play, something which does not exist on PC anymore.

    And every game comes with day 1 patch and million DLCs that won't be on disc.

    Unfortunately this is mostly irrelevant, due to not only the patch and DLC thing mentioned above, but also the fact the discs are coded to only work on certain hardware. At the end of the day every PC game ever made is out there "DRM free" as well, if needed, and doesn't require ancient hardware to function.

    Hopefully said developers will give Sony a wide berth from now on, and move on to platforms that welcome them with open arms; so basically all of them except Playstation.
    PS4 has only had one worthwhile exclusive for its entire lifespan, here's hoping that will be a nice, round zero in PS5's case.

    :notsureifserious:

    Bloodborne, Horizon, God of War, Uncharted, Spiderman...possibly Days Gone soon.

    Maybe not perfect games or for everyone but all at least "worthwhile".

    They're worthwhile in the sense that they attract consumers yes. How much they matter will depend on the person though. Only Bloodborne really makes me wish for a PC version honestly.

    All PS exclusives are one step above in quality compared to multiplatform games in general in one aspect or another.
    There never was a 'crap' PS exclusive per se.

    1) There are also digital stores on consoles with sales
    2) you forgot to mention that those online subscriptions come with free games to play.
    3) people who dont play extensively will maybe play 3-4 games a year, which means they still spend less money than on a gaming pc.
    5) 80 bucks is only for absolute fringe cases. I bought Red Dead Redemption 2 on release day for 51€

    I personally prefer pc simply because the console provides too little variety and lacks the games i enjoy the most, but neglecting the appeal of consoles by exaggerating cost points always seemed a bit dishonest to me.
