      I have no real attachment to sony, I just liked that it was the primary weeb machine but now that they kicked most japanese games to the curb, there's nothing to justify me wanting one.

        They gave most of their consoles to China and their in-house developers.
        The Genshit Devs were even given PS5s, free of charge because their gachashit got Sony 12 million within a week.

    No games, subpar UHD player. At least the PS3 was a great blu-ray player during the period it had nogames. I've had to set up a regular UHD player next to the unused PS5 so it never even gets switched on now.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out China has been intentionally fucking them over with misinformation and scalpers to buy out the whole company. Just keep buying their consoles, so Sony can't get their money back from game and service sales, and flood the internet with misinformation that no one should react to what is being done to them. PS5 increasing it's price to combat the lost software sales at least stops the CCP's plans to dry them out with scalping, but the damage has already been done to the developer scene. No reason to make games for a console that no one makes games for.

    Cause it had no fucking games, no availability, and a serious amount of good will for Sony had been smashed upon the rocks for both audience and developers.

    Why buy a game that's censored when you can buy it on steam cheaper, without a fucking console, and it's uncensored? There's not even a new Souls game on there to boost the sales. It's Sony's true value, dogshit now.

    Production problems during COVID, mixed with whatever shit is going on now, means that supply is nil

    Meanwhile, those of us who have it don't have anything to be excited about. I actually thought launch was okay for Sony, who's usually shit at launches, but there have been no exciting exclusives, and they shuttered all their Japan devs because it's all about PRESTIGE GAMING now, presumably to synergize with Sony pictures.

    Also their subscription service is needlessly complicated while Game Pass is cleaning house.

    I know the Switch only had Kirby and Splatoon this year but I'm not sure PS5 had any exclusives. Really excited for that remaster of a PS4 remaster of a PS3 zombie game!!!

    Sony consoles have been my primarily console and I've stuck around sonce the ps2 era but even i find this shit irredeemable. the ps5 gen somehow managed to fuck up even harder that the ps3. Even the normies I know who have an irrational fear of building PCs would prefer to just buy an xbox or give up on the hobby all together because they believe the entry fee for it is way too steep these days

    Lack of consoles due to parts shortage leading to a lack of adoption causing a lack of players meaning less money to be made from exclusives causing all third party and even most first party games to be cross-gen and everyone already owns a PS4 so why the fuck would they buy the new console when it's got the exact same games?

    It's the PS4, but now the competition hasn't crippled itself so without 'default gamebox' perks the 'only release AAA' strategy shows it's weakness, mainly long ass gaps in releases.

    Because there is little to no incentive to buy one. They had two years to come up with announcements at the very least to justify purchasing their hardware as oppose to literally the rest of the gaming market and the only real thing going for it is DeS Remake. It might have worked for PS4's Bloodborne (also because it has more games) but for PS5? The only reason people are buying it is because they are sold the idea of a status symbol.
    Just like others have said the coof, shortages, selling at breakpoint or even losing money only for the product to be "held hostage" by scalpers really diminished the need for one.

    I'll give you one better, the PS5 didn't fail, after all it got released, the problem is why did Sony fail the PS5 and the PS playerbase? Why should I, as a PS4 / 3 player buy the PS5?

    Console exclusives should unironically get outlawed. There isn't a single reason to not use a PC for gaming since it can do everything while still being cheaper.
