We finally got that 1 reason to own the ps5 or what do you guys think? Just keep waiting or was demon souls your game to get one?

The game looks like 3rd person sci fi diablo 2

everything is randomly generated and you got like great graphics environments and cool enemies there random this thing epic right and its like dead cells you die you lose some gear but keep lots of doors and bosses unlocked.

Another Returnal thread? Can you at least post your question in one of the existing ones?

Eh. Interesting little game, but not for me.

Then again, I find it extremely difficult to buy new hardware for just a single game anyway.

This is huge deal when a AAAE comes out like this its needs respect as it could be a killer app and im just wondering if this a reason to get the ps5 or not itt has nothing to do with the reviews or anything is this game killing the switch and pc or not? Is this thing big enough to get a 500 dollar console for is the question here.

This game could make a killing if they add multiplayer.

they should focus on adding that if they can.

We already had plenty of other reasons to own a PS5. So no, this is not the "first" reason, it's yet another reason.

I would probably get it if it weren't $70.

That's insane

Will get the PC version when it releases, I just started Ghosts of Tsushima anyway.

Not for me, no. But the difficulty of the game has me intrigued. I had no idea it was designed to be so punishing.

Not really for me personally. I’d say that the first big PS5 game for me was Demon’s Souls.

Looks like a cool game. Would never dream of buying a PS5 though. Pretty sure I can't even if I wanted to.

Good game, but would argue that neither this or demons soul is true system seller as they are simply to niche! Of course with the ps5 continuing to be sold out everywhere, one could argue it doesn’t really need a system seller atm!

Honestly I just want a PS5 to run my PS4 games at 60fps.

I bought a PS4 pro to run games at 60fps too, and there were like two that did.

Sorry but I agree with @Chutebox (for once) that Demon Souls Remake is the logical choice picking up PS5. Returnal isn't even close at all. Maybe Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart but still, it's Demon Souls Remake.

@sts106mat said:

What a stupid question.

Not really and we do get these kinds of questions whenever next-gen consoles are still new. I do buy next-gen consoles just to play 1 game. It's interesting to see if Returnal does convince anyone to purchasing PS5...if you can find the damn console of course.

Yes. Returnal is the first reason I see that someone might start to think they need a start thinking about getting into the next gen. Until now it has been remakes more or less. Ratchet & Clank is the reason I'm getting a Ps5 (sucks cause once I'm done with that I will likely never play Ps5 again as Sony rarely puts out anything I'm interested in)

On the bright side, gifting my nieces a Ps5 post Ratchet and Clank, sounds like a fine gift! :)

Everything is randomly generated = bland, featureless, soulless level design because the devs couldn't be bothered to put in the effort to create something, but rather have an algorithm do it for them.

Lmao, I guess if you can't play the game, might as well convince yourself it's bad.

I usually have a 3 game rule before I buy hardware. It has to have at least 1 game I HAVE to play, and 2 I want to play. This falls into the "want to play" category, so I still need more content and that "must play" game that makes me bite.

If I had a PS5 I would get this game .. not at launch but when it drops to around $50. It looks fun but having to play it through in one sitting is a huge pain in the butt. Yes I know you can pause the game and come back to it, but what if I want to play something else and then come back to it

There's already several great PS5 games (last gen ports/cross-gen games aside), but Returnal could be the tipping point for some, sure.

Means it's good doesn't it?

But most use the 7-10 part of the scale.

7 - not too good

8 - good

9 - very good

10 - excellent

Bro not many games get above 87 on metacritic unless its a really old game with barely any reviews or a nintendo flagship they barely any 90's anymore these days this is huge for sony and for gamers.

@ProtossRushX: Probably. At least, the first real reason to get a PS5.

I am loving Outriders, but it is available on PS4 and Xbox One.

60fps standard is, in my opinion. Great games being released this early in the generation is a great bonus, though!

I'm really hoping it comes out for PC. A single game isn't going to tempt me to buy a console...
