Hopefully the gameplay will be as good as the new graphics engine! I do like at the beginning how the section is moving up through the forest, NVGs on trying to be quiet and tactic, just for some bloke with an awesome tash to be standing there finishing a cigar. -banghead-

Thought I'd bump this thread once again, anyone going to be getting the PS5 or Xbox Series X?
I'm currently playing ps4 so more than likely get ps5, but all depends on what my mates get aswell.

Not bothering with the 5 until Warzone etc are truly dead on the 4. Despite COD becoming my main pastime when not doing phys or working since covid all kicked off, I'm not a devoted-enough gamer to spend hundreds on it just yet. Rather stick the £400 into a Stocks and Shares ISA or something and be a little more financially savvy down the line!

However I will painfully watch £70 or so go down the drain when the new Black Ops is released. Apparently it's already set to be disappointing and a step back in the COD-sphere but I'd be lying if I said there wasn't some nostalgia kicking in from being a teenager playing the original one in 2009 or whenever it came out, and looking forward to reviving the characters etc.

I haven’t even looked into the PS5, I was saying to some mates why bother with making a new console why not just improve and upgrade the current consoles, because the only games available on launch for the next console will be games on the current consoles.

Massively looking forward to AC Valhalla though, shame it’s released on a Tuesday of all days, not even halfway through the week!

What games do you play?, I've got cravings to play some of the Farcry series for some reason, even though they're pretty much copy and paste.
The last farcry I played was number 4, I dont even know how any have been out since then ha. I play bits of modern warfare here and there but to be honest I dont have time these days. Working 12 hour shift and training after work etc and having a child gets in the way massively. But il still get one just because I like knowing ive got the latest tech haha

You've got quite a few now but they're pretty much copy and paste I think, 5 is set in the US and involves a cult so looks quite interesting.

Yeah I totally understand that, it's tempting because it's backwards compatible.
Id really like a good game to get into though but its just finding one that can keep me interested. Il have a look at that new far cry and see what its like.

Going off what I've seen, I'm kind of leaning more towards the ps5 but if more friends got the xbox then i reckon id get that

I prefer the PS UI over the Xbox, originally I had an Xbox One and it's crashed loads plus they updated the UI every week which I found annoying.

Always the way though, pointless having one if you don't have mates on the same platform as you.
Yeah im with you on that one mate, ps4 is alot better to navigate etc.
You play cod at all

This is a great thread haha! I’d imagine most guys on here have a gaming bone in their body....

Hopefully with ROP around the corner I won’t be buying the new Cold War..... but we’ll see. If this lockdown postponed things post Christmas then I will. In regards to getting a new PS or Xbox.... it would have to be something special and worth the money. There’s nothing I can’t do on my PS4 so I’ll stick to that for now. The cod cross platform makes it a damn sight better to connect with others though which is great!

Used to in year 12 but my computer takes about 50 minutes to load into a server so can't anymore.

Honestly think it's worth more investing in some vr stuff than ps5 etc as seeing the way vr is going is insane

Other than Half Life Alyx, there is no other main title coming out on VR, after more years when the technical issues are overcome such as weight of headsets and nausea from movement are solved everyone will go "ready player one." Imagine what that's going to be like for porn! So many guys are going to wear out VR Groin Attachments. :cool:

PS5 chat now the system is awesome and has improved load times on my 4 titles. I pre-orders so managed to dissapoint many children as I walked by on my way out of bestbuy.

Its interesting to see the uses for VR in otherplaces other than gaming (something I'd never eally thought about"
"I spent a year researching the use of VR in training for the fire service. As well as training pilots for Wessex helos, I also visited a SF regt in Dorset, who were using for training and familiarisation on vessels without even visiting the ship. Everything was accurate, down to the patterns on the carpets and the clocks on the bulkheads." From good ol facebook so might not be too accurate but interesting none the less

COD?

I refuse to pay for it. They ruined warzone with the latest season. They had such a good platform and basis to work with and since the black ops/Cold War rubbish, it’s just turd now.

I’ve not enjoyed call of duty since the first few Black ops that were brought out and since they cross platform now similar to “fortnite” just full of hackers and cheats which has came out in the open recently.
I ended up jumping ship and going battlefield route now that’s a game where realism is next to none!

Yep! Sadly because it is free it’s hammered with hackers although they seem to have got a handle of it.
But a way to just have console players would be nice.
They really did have a good idea with warzone but the black ops inclusion just ruined it.
The black ops weapons are just the same as what there already was, but just over powered and with terrible graphics.
Warzone should be the new shiny thing, yea have small throw backs or skins to relate to black ops but don’t just undermine the whole game.
There’s constantly basic stuff going wrong too, but they are more obsessed with changing the layout so it’s less user friendly, and adding stupid over the top crap. If I want gold masks and fortnite sh!te then i would play fortnite!

I barely play it anymore much better game for your time in Multiplayer.
