Actually bit the massive bullet (slightly smaller in the US tho) and bought a PS5 for my birthday today. And while some games may be neat, God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, etc…
Been looking for Gears of War, even Judgement at the worst and I am displeased to say I can’t find them anywhere on the PS store, it just keeps trying to get me to buy God of War 3. Worst console I own, for sure after this.
Reminds me of when I hear people say “yeah they showed some GoW at the gameshow today” and my mind actually believes its our GoW for a split second, only to be immediately reminded of that melon headed cornball.
At one point in 2012 I was playing Gears 3 Beast mode with a friend. An hour or so later we switched to Black Ops. Another hour or so I asked him “Gow?” (because we didn’t use party chat) and I got the message back,
“Sorry, I don’t have PS.”
“Playstation, I don’t have God of War.”
“No, Gears of war dude.”
So at least in 2012 even after just playing Gears 3 my buddy assumed GOW meant God of War, which just sorta cemented Gears as the more niche title in my mind.
PlayStation literally the vastly superior console unless you happen to like Halo/GoW. Even multiplatform titles like CoD/Fifa/ESO (prior to PS/Xbox being able to play together) where it shouldn’t matter, PS has vastly more players to play against which improves your experience in various ways.
