Thread New PS5 Firmware releases tomorrow (SSD storage, 3D audio through TV speakers, trophy tracking)
I feel this is a glitch? I think all the icons reverted to their pre update icons, because the icons Miles and Sackboy are using are now what they had before installing updates.

Thread Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice |OT2| Domo Arigato, Mr. ROBERTOOOOO!!!
I have 39 prayer beads and can’t figure out for the life of me which one I’m missing! I’m looking through the list and I remember getting pretty much all of them except for two, but those two I got from the offering box anyway! Is there any straight up missable prayer beads?

Thread Elden Ring - Official Trailer | Summer Game Fest (Releasing January 21, 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC)
Honestly I agree. I think inherently being a new IP gives it a stronger chance to win that iterative sequels to BOTW or GOW, no matter how excellent those turn out. And I’m sure all three will be phenomenal. But Elden Ring will be the most “fresh” of those.

I think both Scarlet Nexus box arts are bad. The US Tales one is a massive downgrade though.

Thread People Upset about $70 Games are not Trolling Sony we are Poor and Can't Afford to Keep up with the Way the Industry is trending.
$70 price tag is not going to stop micro transactions lmao. Literally the first game to announce the price hike was NBA 2K which is MTX hell. Again, literally every publisher is seeing record profits. Stop acting like this increase was in any way needed.

Thread People Upset about $70 Games are not Trolling Sony we are Poor and Can't Afford to Keep up with the Way the Industry is trending.
Any hypothetical involving inflation or developer salaries or whatever is ignoring the fact that literally every major publisher saw record profits over the course of the generation thanks to the advent of digital, micro transactions, and AAA games in general selling better than they ever did before. There isn’t actually any justification for the bump to $70. Well I suppose the justification is reaching even higher record profits to show shareholders. But no major publisher is in dire straights that would necessitate a price hike.

Thread For The People Voting Rights Act Dies In Senate As Joe Manchin Declares His Support For Republican Voter Suppression Efforts
I sincerely do not understand the rationale of blaming "us" for not voting in more Democrats when its Democrats fault for not appealing more broadly? Stop blaming common people for the fuckery that is our "democracy." I vote blue in every election I can but I'm not gonna blame apathy towards Dems on normal people.

Thread Outside of Dallas, every NBA franchise that has won a championship since 1983 has been eliminated from contention already.
Essentially every championship winning team in the last 4 decades being eliminated by the first round is certainly not a normal thing.

Thread Rumour: WindowsCentral - Xbox E3 2021 - What could be there and what not
Forza Horizon has consistently released every two years since the first game came out in 2012, so technically this one is a year late! Of course FH4 has seen substantial post launch support and COVID happened, so it’s understandable.

Thread Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir / The Girl Who Stands Behind |OT| From the Makers of Metroid
Yes! Though they play nothing alike, both games were originally made by Nintendo R&D1, and these games were written by Metroid series producer Yoshio Sakamoto.

Thread Movies that you were shocked to learn were directed by the same person
Lord and Miller qualify I'd say. Going from an R rated raunchy buddy cop movie to a fucking kids movie about legos is pretty funny. And both were well received! They did Into the Spiderverse too.

Even if we get Prime Trilogy, I am entirely sure they are developing Prime 4 knowing most of the audience has never touched a Metroid game before.

Thread Bloodborne fans, which 'remake' option would you prefer?
Because I find the idea of a PS4 game, which is more than good enough from a fidelity standpoint, getting a remake to be laughable. Remakes just for higher fidelity are incredibly boring, especially when the base material already looks great. Hell even when the original game has aged visually, I still feel this way. Demon's Souls remake is the exact same game but shinier.

Thread Bloodborne fans, which 'remake' option would you prefer?
I literally just want it at 60fps. It could look exactly the same, IDGAF. Just need it at a higher and more consistent framerate! To answer the OP's question, I suppose a PS5 remake in 5 years because it is the soonest option. But again, don't even need that shit. It doesn't even need a remaster lol. Just patch the PS4 version to take advantage of the PS5's power.

Thread Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is a PS5 exclusive for "at least sixth months"
Sony's exclusivity deals with Square really irritate me. At least their other stuff like Ghostwire and Deathloop are day 1 PC. Hell, even Forspoken is PC. Yet they keep FF only on PlayStation. I get keeping it off their direct competitor, but why not PC? It feels like Square's strategy revolves entirely on moneyhats now lol. Let Sony pay for timed exclusivity, then have Epic pay for EGS exclusivity on PC, then have MS pay to stick it on Game Pass.

Thread Nintendo First Party Thread |OT3| Internal x External x Publishing - What's cooking?
I’ve said it before but people have over corrected with the whole “TPC is separate from Nintendo!!!” thing. Yes, they are separate entities but Nintendo still owns 1/3 of them / the franchise, own all the relevant trademarks, etc. They are heavily involvrd with the operations of TPC, there is a lot of coordination that goes on even in games that you think are wholly separate from Nintendo. The Pokémon Company’s primary reason to exist is to make money for its three shareholders, Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures.

Thread The PC Builders Thread ("I Need a New PC") v3
Should I buy Sabrent SSDs now on this DOTD, or wait for Black Friday? Not building a PC until I get my hands on a 3080 + a Zen 3 CPU, which I’m thinking may not be until like November at the rate they are selling. Thinking of buying a NVMe 4.0 1TB 5000MB/s ($160): Or a NVMe 3.0 2TB 3400MB/s ($230): Also is there any drawback to having two M.2 NVMe SSDs? The mobo I was looking at was the ASUS ROG Strix B550-F.

Thread PlayStation 5 shipments reach 7.8 Million units as of March 31st, fastest selling console launch aligned Worldwide (PS4 was 7.6M at the same time)
PS4’s peak year was 20M exactly, and didn’t happen till 2016. I wouldn’t say it’s a shoe in to surpass that. Shipping 20M in one FY is a big ask. But if they can get Horizon and GOW out by the end of the fiscal year (and they can manufacture enough lol) it’s certainly feasible. PS4 shipments by year for comparison: FY3/14 - 7.5M / 7.5M FY3/15 - 14.8M / 22.3M FY3/16 - 17.7M / 40.0M FY3/17 - 20.0M / 60.0M FY3/18 - 19.0M / 79.0M FY3/19 - 17.8M / 96.8My FY3/20 - 13.6M / 110.4M

Thread PlayStation 5 shipments reach 7.8 Million units as of March 31st, fastest selling console launch aligned Worldwide (PS4 was 7.6M at the same time)
Yep. The comparison to PS4 is a little wonky though, because it launched in March, so it has 4 less months comparatively. NSW: FY 3/17 - 2.74M / 2.74M FY 3/18 - 15.05M / 17.79M FY 3/19 - 16.95M / 34.74M FY 3/20 - 21.03M / 55.77M FY 3/21 is going to be ridiculous though lol. They’re already at 24.1M units this fiscal year (LTD 79.87M) before even accounting for their last quarter. Even a bare minimum of them hitting their projections of another 2.4M to get to their 26.5M would be way ahead of any singular year the Switch and PS4 have ever had, and they’re pretty likely to smash that forecast.

Thread You're in Charge With The 1st Wave of Nintendo Selects...
For Wave 1 of Selects I’d focus on 2017-2018 games that appeal to family audiences. I imagine folks who picked up a Switch for Pokémon or Animal Crossing missed out on these games. ARMS, Kirby Star Allies, Mario Tennis Aces, and DKC Tropical Freeze make the most sense to me. As for the bonus game, BOTW getting a $60 SKU that included the expansion pass would be a great way to keep up interest in the game at full price even when the sequel hits.

Thread Are Rift Apart and Returnal poised to set records for their Developers?
Rift Apart is being positioned as a marquee PS5 game and will do big numbers. R&C 2016 had a bigger install base to work with but Rift Apart feels like a much bigger deal, plus it’ll probably continue to sell well throughout the lifespan of PS5. Returnal... I’m rooting for it but nobody’s buying that for $70. Maybe when it’s deeply discounted.

Mellow Mode gives Yoshi a pair of wings to fly around freely, and can be toggled on/off at any time in the menu. In multiplayer, one Yoshi can hop on the other to throw eggs with ease!While the actual platforming may be a breeze for veteran players, the real difficulty comes in acquiring all the collectables!Yoshi can wear certain items as armor to protect his health.
