    They are offering 550 for the xbox series X. Easy profit. I could easily dig out an old console like @dbhoy72 and take the 650 from CEX, it is tempting. Make even more on ebay. I can't believe people pay they mark ups.

    Fifa next gen upgrade is available now instead of 2moro, looks so much better and the new camera angle is cracking.

    Is a pretty big *, lol.

    I'll get a mix of PS4/5 games.

    Got PES 21 in the end, Marvels Avengers, Valhalla (for Xmas), going to get Spiderman, NFL 21.

    Still got Broken Sword 5 to play and to get into Nhl 20.

    Was going to go for Watchdog Legions which is £30 at Tesco, but looked at the back of it and saw someone flying on a disc and thought nah I'll skip.

    Not sure if what the pros /cons are between PS Now and Plus.

    I Don't do online multiplayer, although maybe the odd game might be a tad fun, but think Now would offer more games? Although not sure if plus offers the better free titles?

    PS Now is a subscription service to an online catalogue of PS games - mostly older titles. PS plus lets you play online with some pre selected free games monthly.

    Playing Marvels Avengers on this, it's obviously a PS4 game, but confirms one thing.

    There is no difference in graphics unless your a geek.

    Loading times, aye, I'll give you that.

    Thinking of the games I recently played on PS4, they are no worse, not even sure how they could be better.

    I played Spiderman for PS5 and I honestly feel Avengers are just as good graphics wise.

    Just the age old tactic, tell them it's better and they'll believe.

    That goes for you PC geeks too.

    I'm sure we were warned early doors that there wouldn't be a huge graphics jump this time around. The differences were going to be in the tech or 8k gaming, 4k@120hrz, vastly reduced loading times, haptic feedback etc etc

    Will a big part be that games currently on the ps5 are mostly available for PS4 so that's really what they are, 4k PS4 games. I think the original PS4 games were jazzed up ps3 games. Maybe it will get better, a guy at work keeps saying it is all about the texture mapping but * knows.

    Haptic feedback is an interesting subject, maybe could be right, maybe I was wrong.

    Wait.......* does Haptic mean?

    Haha sound.

    Say you're playing an FSP shooter, right? If someone's shooting you from the left then the left hand side of the duelsense will rumble. If someone's shooting you from the right hand side then only the right hand side will rumble.

    The rumble will also vary depending on the different types of terrain you're crossing.

    Then there's the adaptive triggers too... The new control pad is just a very next gen. Arguably more so than the console
