    I wasn’t overly interested but this and the DS5 features make me want to give it a go!

    I looked at this on my phone yesterday and there I can’t really spot resolution differences (not really easy with YouTube compression) but it looked the same. However the PS5 version has smoke from the gun when shooting that the Series X lacks. I would normally consider this just a shipping bug or one version being slightly behind, but the frame drops happen during explosions with lots of smoke and the Series X drops a ~5 frames more than the PS5 in those instances.

    That again would suggest that right now with the current state of affairs the PS5 has some kind of really minor bandwidth advantage.

    Apparently those that play competitively do care and I was under the impression that's why the XBSX was supposed to be prime to take advantage in the competitive scene due to it's TF count. However it doesn't seem like it now.

    I'm planning on getting one of these for my boys' room:

    LG 49NANO866NA

    120hz and VRR. It's only £579. Bit of a bargain.

    Well the benefits are real especially if you do have a TV that can show the benefit. Of the casual any TV can do but for a competitive player it's huge.

    Arwin's post shows it best.

    yes, i did not mean it's useless, but it won't benefit many gamers sadly.
    But seeing good graphics at 120fps gives me high hopes for VR games on PS5

    Interesting. I'm starting to wonder about those tweets that were tweeted right after Cerny's The Road to PS5 conference. But I'll wait for a few more game comparisons before opening up that/those can(s) of worms.

    Just wish the game was reviewing a bit better - the curse of digital only begins!

    Is the game getting panned because of Digital Only, or Buggy and Requires Patches, or because of Huge Downloads?

    I Hate You...

    What's the majority of the complaints? Are all 3 hated on equally?

    I just meant that you pay top dollar and can’t sell on if I don’t like it. At least with a disk I can try and sell in...I mean, I’d want it for story and Zombies- there’s only one map so that’s £90!

    Just ask for a refund. Granted you'd need to make up your mind fairly early on in the game if you're doing that. I think the usual auto-approved refund on Xbox is 2 hours of gameplay. But I haven't followed along with that to see what the limitations are today.

    ElAnalistaDeBits compare. The PS5 seems to drop quite a few more frames at the section being compared around the 10:30 and on mark (first Series X then PS5). Faster loading is significant on PS5 this time unlike some of what I've seen so far.

    PS5 as I wanted to try out the DS5 with this game.

    Guess I’ll wait for a sale.

    I need a bit of help. I am installing the new COD from disc but it's saying the campaign is not installed and I can't seem to find a way to install it. Am I missing something or is the campaign not on the disc?

    Game crashes on both PS5 and XBSX/XBSS. He mentions that it has a lot of problems and downloading is one. Mentions Xbox Series has more problems than the PS5.

    Loves the RT shadows and materials.
