So i was speaking about this.
Having a random game could be problem but if one can pick from like 10 or 20 or so 1-2 which gets completely for free it could be great.

2 games for free are cool as long as is not a random games.
Because you know when i get a game i dont want to play then its burden for me.
But i understands some people or kids can be happy.
But in this case the GOG site is absolutely gorgeous. Old or Older games cost just a penny and even a new games can get incredible discounts.
Having Witcher 3 with all add-ons for 10 euros is just one example.

Of course if you don't want to pay at all for anything then stick with PC and torrents.
The beauty of the console is that the software is designed specifically for this particular hardware and it always works flawlessly. No change in graphics quality is needed, no endless loading just because the laptop (?) cooler is overloaded. It's dedicated hardware for gaming and you are guaranteed that for quite a few years you will be able to play all available games (and not think how to get new videocard, RAM or whatever).
It doesn't look like an Xbox control, Sony have adopted the black and white colour scheme they used on the PsVR headset that's all.
Still wouldnt and never ever would swap my laptop for a gaming console.
Steam and GoG have innteresting discounts same goes for many else.
Also torrent offers plenty of ways to get games for free.
With console nothong like this is possible.
Slymod, 08 Apr 2020Why change playstation culture sony? Seems like sony is battling too hard with microsoft that... moreI hope you're joking. Playstation culture? Then maybe Sony is appropriating XBox culture with the shape? They're gaming consoles not a people. The design should be functional, aesthetic is secondary as it has to look like something.
Tony Lord, 09 Apr 2020How on earth does the DualSense look like an Xbox controller??!!That's not really that it look like an Xbox controller, but that it look closer to an Xbox controller than it its previous PS4 controller, that's a slight but still important nuance.
The generous and rounded shapes of course remind the Xbox controller, but this is only because both got on the same direction, an ergonomic design that fit well into the hand, not to say the PS controller have bad handling, but the Xbox controller is popular for its high appreciated shape making it seat well in the hand.
Sony probably didn't even thought about Microsoft while making their PS5 controller, but rather took some time to rethink the ergonomic.
At least, that's what I think happened.

Or be ... moreThat what I thought while writing that comment, based on how cheap RGB LED are today compared to static ones, and considering the success of RGB light, it would have been a poor choice to use a single fixed color.
But I guess the blue is the default color, and a blue light, IMO, mix really well with black and white.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2020The boomerang? Not even remotely, to me.Did you acknowledged of that time earlier concept of controller? You should search on Google
Perfect design, cool functions, not a practical color but I'm sure they're going to be more color options!

I actually like it. Better than ps4 controller, and more comfy to hold (from the look of it).
The one issue i have is the inbuilt mic, if there is no potion to turn it off i will have to tweezer the mic to kill it.
Peachy001, 08 Apr 2020Funnily enough, I was gonna mention the mic. If MS had done that when launching the Xbox One, ... moreThe issue is that, while more and more concerning with more and more reports and news articles about privacy intrusion and violation, peoples also are more and more accepting toward privacy intrusive tech, simply because they slowly come more and more but at a slow enough pace.
Take most tech from 2019/2010 and try to sell them in 2010, a lot of peoples who nowadays blindly accept things such as remote control with build in microphone, TV with build in microphone, home assistant, all of which being connected to internet and having been caught stealing private personal data the user didn't consent to give (even on the small lines of the contract they are supposed to read), a lot of those 2010 peoples, for those who won't simply buy because the technology is impressive, would clearly refuse the idea of such private life invasion.
That's how, in the 2000, when anything opened even a single internet page, it was considered a malware, nowaday it is a norm for software to open webpages when install/uninstall is completed or while clicking on a button with no warning what so ever that it will open a web page...
Same with how a single element poping up on a web page was considered intrusive and annoying, but nowaday it is totally normal to have the EU cookie hell + "subscribe to our newsletter to get more news" + "Ah, you are using an add blocking thing to prevent us from flooding the content with annoying ads everywhere" + "Subscribe to get more features on our websites" + "We also have IOS, Android and Windows applications" + "Follow us on our social medias".
Okay this is probably the max you can get and that much at once is rare, but still, having 3 of those is a reality in many websites...
This mean, simply because it came slowly enough, peoples got accustom and while it may bother them, they don't complain as they think it is normal...
That exactly where the boiling from fable/metaphor can be used.
Why change playstation culture sony?
Seems like sony is battling too hard with microsoft that they made the ps5 controller look like an xbox controller shape wise. The iconic colour ps buttons are now monochromatic! I hope sony does not have this as the final version. It's a poor design overall.

If MS had done that when launching the Xbox One, it would have been hammered for it. Be interesting to see if many others raise the issue.
