I finally set up the PS5 I bought in September! It’s very striking in person, and not quite as big as I thought, thankfully. It leaves a very strong impression the moment you set it up. Reminds me of the impression the Wii left me with a decade ago... There must be something to white consoles with a blue glow, I guess. To celebrate opening it, I turned on the original PS1 behind me and listened to that classic startup experience while I unboxed it.

Now all I have to do is get games to actually play. Some enhanced PS4 games like Intergrade might be a good start. Otherwise, I’m eyeing Demon Souls.

Or get the dbrand darkplates 2.0 which has venting for your fans which Sony's do not and are high quality. I managed to get the 1.0 when they came out before Sony sued them because they got annoyed that dbrand beat them to it by an entire year. As for the controller, I have a dark blue and black matte that I customized on colorware and has plenty of options. Since Sony pretends capitalism supposedly breeds innovation buy from these or other places instead.

Now that is interesting. Well, to be clear, I'm not really liking this attitude to the game industry where companies are trying to consolidate as many third parties as possible to give them an advantage. But it does seem like this is a direct blow to Microsoft - what kind of message does it send for them to buy the studio responsible for their biggest icon?

It's been a bunch of Halos (Microsoft IP) since Bungie stopped making them and most of staff moved into 343i under Microsoft to continue making those.

This is just Sony trying to tap into the power of multiplatform online gaming.
