On PC, the XBox Gamepass is damn good value. There's this game on my wishlist called The Ascent, and word is it will also launch free on Gamepass. And previously alot of AAA games launched on Gamepass.

I'm surprised to see yakuza series on gamepass. If they get their hands on more third party games, it make ps5 look redundant with so many remasters/director's cut/ps4 to ps5 upgrade and only 2 exclusives. Right now my ps5 is a trophy stacking machine and ps4 elite for a few games which devlopers bothered to patch in some upgrades for free. If majority were to sell next gen upgrade, more of a reason not to get a ps5. I use ps4 pro more than ps5 :lol: Ang moh like to compare psnow and gamepass. But they seem to forget psnow is not available to every region. Gamepass is available in more countries than psnow.

AVICII Invector on sale psn store $8+ base version. Surprisingly nice selection of tracks. A pey kee rhythm game with single player story mode and up to 4p multiplayer. I never pay attention to his music but I did listened to 1 or 2 tracks before on spotify. Also didn't know that he passed away. Legend says that 75% perfect trophy is the roadblock to platinum. I thought so at first on easy and medium difficulty. But it is so much easier on hard difficulty first track, due to more notes and well tuned to the beat. Got it on my 3rd attempt, 25 non perfect notes, around 89% perfect notes. Most crucial thing is to find your latency settings. The L1 gates, dpad switch lane and face buttons notes have different perfect timing. Sadly, the calibration tool seems way off. I've tried latency 66, 55, 51, 50, 45, 40, 34, 33, 31, 28, 26, 17 and 13. 33 and 13 are the best for me. Got used to 13 and stick with that. Still not perfect but I get better scores with it. Nice game but notes sync to beat can be improved. My young nephew also like this game other than minecraft dungeons and sackboy a big adventure.

After watching PS5 DS let's plays I want to play DS but dun have PS5 :lol: the best thing about XBox Gamepass is playing new games cheaply on my PC, and the XBGPPC releases are greatly superior to PSNow's (from PC vs PS4 pov not XBox vs PS4).

If Demon's Souls has a PC remaster version by Bluepoint I would buy it now, but if I finally manage to get a PS5 the first game I'd buy is definitely DS.

3 games, damn pathetic. Guess I'm getting more mileage from my PC then.

Yup, maybe 4 if you count Nioh 1 remastered since it has exclusive 120fps 1080p. There will always be fans defending with free ps5 enhancements, backwards compatibility as if ps4 pro does not exist at all when you mentioned the lack of ps5 games. Don't know what they will say next if future ps5 upgrades require a fee. The upcoming internal storage expansion also not cheap. I already started moving a few completed ps5 games to my t5 1tb. I guess I'll just use that and keep ps4 games on both my ps4 pro.

The PS4 console generation domination may have made Sony complacent, or have their eyes focused on the console sales, but not realising that MS is playing a different game.

Do you know that the previous platinum wireless headset has better drivers than the new pulse elite? I was surprised after googling info on it. I assumed newer is better :lol:

Trade in value also damn low for a $97 ps5 game, around $40 to $50. Nintendo carts worth more than that or same range and cost less.

This is the 2nd time ps5 digital games go on sale. I guess $97.90 not selling as much as they have expected?

$100 for a single game. PC side I hesitate when it's above S$20!

Don't think any current ps5 exclusives are worth full price.

Even with GP, I still buy titles on xbox during sales,esp for those that i enjoyed, like ace combat, witcher 3. I just like owning games instead of "renting" then i guess.

I also like xbox gold free weekends... was able to play tokyo olympics 2020 via that route on us store, scored some easy achievement points for free!

You should check out Ascent, free on day 1 on XBGP across PC and XBox consoles.
