Buy a PC and then when Sony isn't making money on consoles, they'll bring all the exclusives to PC

Yes, buy a 60k pc to play those titles in glorious 4k goodness, who needs a 10k console pfft...
Yes this was sarcasm... I forget to add the /s to about 70% of my posts

The hardware in the new consoles make the manufacturer price tags rather cheap. the 50% additional pricing on them in SA though is a bitter pill to swallow admittedly. Is what it is - needs must when the devil drives

gamepass >>> exclusives
Exactly, for like R70 a month we get access to just about every single MS game (that is on xbone), but also from November, EA Play (formerly EA Access) will be included in that same R70 price tag so we will be getting those games too

It's R49 on PC. But that price tag is no more after the end of Sep, it becomes R99 which is still good value.

On the Xbox site it's R11,999
The big boy Xbox version is actually quite nice, I'd totally recommend it if you don't have a l33t gamzor PC.

I like the backwards compatibility stuff with Xbox, real nice, especially with the enhancement they do for older titles.

A simple picture can say so much.

How trumpish of you spreading misinformation. Facts beat bullshit every time.


Notice pricing of the X series version and PS5 is the same.

You seem quite butthurt about pricing - my advice to you - clearly you can't afford it, so ... don't buy it. Simple as.
Is what it is - if you can't change it what's the point fighting it?

Calm your tits - the world isn't ending - it's just getting marginally better :)

People who want to buy a 2nd hand console game for R600 instead of R1399.

Discs arent relevant on PC since the 2nd hand game market has been dead for over a decade.
At that point we are also talking about people who either still cling to their PS3/XBox 360 or commit piracy

Is this local market really ready for discless consoles? I know almost everyone here probably has uncapped, but little Timmy on the street probably doesn't.

Who in their right mind gives a fuck about Australia bra?
What are you on about bra?
Just get to the point already bra!
Why do they pay so much? Those prices are nuts!

I hope this is an Aussie only thing, Jirre I wouldn't be able to afford this hobby if we get shafted like that...

Are you the little Timmy on the street in this scenario?
The local market is indeed ready for diskless consoles - little Timmy on the street isn't though. For little Timmy, much like yourself, purchasing the new gen consoles will always remain a pipe dream it seems. Only difference is little Timmy doesn't feel the need to rant and rave about it on online forums.
