    Also does PSVR2 look to be a decent deal or should I stick with another VR headset? I don’t own a good PC.

      PC VR is a waste of time doesn't even have re7

      PSVR2 if it works on PC well would be the best choice period. (and it may make valve make a newer VR headset, probably one powered by steamOS)
      though idk the game choice it will have on PS5.

      For the same money as a PS5 you can only get a shit PC that is nowhere close to a PS5. PC also has a compatibility problem where nothing runs consistently and is buggy and you have to spend hours looking for some Reddit post about how to change some value in a text file somewhere just to make the game playable.

      the cost of a console and PC is not really apples to apples.
      a PC for 500 can play still online games, pirate, mod, and emulate.
      spending 500 on a PS5, you get none of these things. (though you would need to spend more for equivalent power)

      >used 3070
      Graphics cards are notorious for breaking after use. Never buy a used one. You never know if it was worn down on shitcoin mining or Stable Diffusion pedo image generation.

      it can happen, but from what ive seen, most look fine.

        And that's exactly my point. You'd need to spend 5-10 times as much on a PC for comparable power to a PS5. You will never get a better deal for gaming than a console.

        A 500 PC won't run Ghost of Tsushima and Stellar Blade as well as a PS5 if/when those are ported. The most active online games on PC are FTP games, and a fact that PCfags on Ganker love to hide is that FTP games and FFXIV don't require PS+.
        >piracy
        This one is overblown. There's only one group that cracks Denuvo games. And Empress is mentally insane. Look at this shit. "uh i have le cult." This is the type of person who would kill himself before Denuvo is "defeated." Piracy isn't as viable as before when less and less Denuvo games are being cracked especially when Denuvo itself hires people who were involved in the scene. Eventually, the only means for getting games on PC will be to buy them off Steam or EGS. And these digital games are more expensive than physical games.
        >emulate
        Unless you want to play Switch and PS3 games, any phone can emulate. Hell, phones have better PS2 emulation than PC.

            Just like the twitter puritans who get mad at the sight of an attractive woman in a video game. This is such a non-issue. Women have been showing off their bodies since the start of human civilization. Sculptures and art have been made to honor the female form. Most people in any point in time loves hot girls, and there is nothing wrong with that.

        could be good, though if you're anal about wanting it to be equivalent to a PC port, you will be disappointed and id say just to wait for a PC port (or emulator in the case of say bloodborne)

                a 5700g can do switch emulation well as far as im aware, though CEMU is better for BOTW. (from one video, you can do about 60fps at 720p and 40 at 1080p, which is still alot nicer)

                still a paywall, and the point was not that a 500$ PC will run those games better, its that a PC has a different feature set.

                aetherSX2 is on PC actually (though the biggest issues with PCSX2 are fixed by moving to the nightly builds, the official ones are nightmarishly outdated), you also lose things like primehack and the like, which are much better ways to play certain games.

                though i will say denuvo has gotten harder to crack, its still the case that most games have one.

                >what if i wanted to say, mod a game?
                I don't give a fuck if you want to mod a game. What if OP wanted to play the games he listed at a reasonable price? This isn't about your tastes. It's about OP.

                you kinda miss the point, its that PC does alot of things that a console cannot, making it not a very 1:1 comparison.

              PC gaming is a full time hobby because of all the time you need to spend on Reddit to find out which text file you need to edit to get a game to even be playable on your PC. You don't really have time for a job. Literally every PC gamer I know still lives with their parents who pay for everything.

    PS5 is fantastic. The games run well and it's a much nicer machine than the PS4.

    I sold my PS5. Because while PS5 games run well, PS4 games run like utter shit on it. They run well, for PS4 games, which means 1080p/30 most of the time. It's a pretty bad experience given the PS5 seems to have less than 100 'PS5 optimised' titles. Peripherals are also a fucking nightmare. Trying to find a VRR compatible display for it is a pain. It's really fussy about keyboards and mice. It's a nuisance, and it plays a majority of its library worse than its competition.

    Rift Apart was cool, Ghost of Toshiba was cool, but I couldn't deal with shit like Shadow Warrior 2 running at 30 fps when the PS5 is clearly capable of more.

              Most PS4 games already have the PS4 Pro patch and all those run much better on PS5 than PS4 Pro (rock solid 1440p60 upscaled to 4K60). Sure it's not native 4K but still very nice and OP was specifically asking how PS4 games will play.

                Fallout 4. Red Dead Redemption 2. Shadow Warrior 2. I got bored of them running at 30fps. Some will run at a higher resolution if you're lucky, but still don't lift the framerate. Not to mention they artificially limit the load speeds of PS4 games on PS5 to 600MBps to 'avoid breaking them by loading too fast'.

                The PS5 is good tech kneecapped by shitty software.
