    $10 to Microsoft/Sony.
    The retail store also gets a cut.
    Then the publisher.
    Then the developer's CEO.
    Then the workers get laid off.

    As if, it's the same download shit on console, except you're also fucked if your disc becomes lost/damaged.

    You can play console games without the patches and since both PS4 & Xbox One use Blu Ray, the only way your disc will be damaged is intentional.

    Sure, the opportunity to play a broken and bugged beyond immagination game is a great deal. Plus, games on console do cost more than the pc counterparts. On d1 there's a difference between 10 to 40 euros/dollars, and in the long term the sales are extremely cheaper on pc.
    And JC, I use GOG the most, but you can play Steam games offline too. If you live in a cave without internet to download games and patches buy a Nintendo console, not that shitstation.
    You can stop them, on GOG you can reroll to the version you prefer. What are talking about?

    no you cannot stop them anymore on steam, they disabled this option.

    Nice strawman argument bringing up GOG to the discusion which mainly has old games which we were not talking about

    I associate the Xbox brand with pure cancer. everything was fine in both the console and PC gaming world until M$ switched sides and stuck their grubby hands in. Good to see it getting slaughtered by the PS4 in sales, exclusives etc, and I hope the gap further widens.

    Sony is already preparing to showcase Playstation 5 during the E3 2017 event that will be held in June 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

    According to them, the PlayStation 4 successor will come with some impressive specifications and features.


    First of all, some rumors are suggesting that the GTA 6 will be actually one of the first games that will be released for the PlayStation 5. The GTA 6 is expected to be released sometime in 2020, which means that the PlayStation 5 could hit the stores sometime in 2019.


    According to reports, the PlayStation 5 will also come with a VR headset, as the PlayStation 4 had a real success in delivering VR experiences. In fact, there will be two variants of the PlayStation 5, each of them having a bit different specifications (not major ones).

    But why would I want to have photorealism in my games?

    I prefer good art direction over bland boring photorealism.

    PS5? FFS, they've only just started making decent games for the PS4. Still, at least PS4 game prices will drop.

    There probably never will be a PS5, but more iterative PS4's to come. Same with Xbox.

    hmm ps4 was announced in 2013.

    I think 2018 will be date of announcement. Unless they plan to build next console like a phone where PS5 will be fully backward compat with whole catalog (because consoles will be based now on API not on hardware). Then 2017 seems reasonable to announce. 2018 whole details and few games showcase with 2018 winter release date which makes console essentially 2019 about 6 years after ps4 which is pretty normal for console cycle.

    Though for hardware it will be pretty lucklustre upgrade. HBM2 stack of 32GB, Ryzen+8core, and about 10Tflop.

    I'd prefer them to make better games than shoving down incremental hardware upgrades.

    Yet we'll get nor photorealism nor good art direction, nor complex layouts of levels, nor smarter AI etc...
