Bethesda accidentally posted a trailer announcing Hi-Fi Rush for the PS5. Coming March 18th. More at Gematsu!

That lame trailer where the main character negotiates getting a coffee mug? If so, it didn't do anything to get me interested in the game. I know it is apparently beloved, but given it was an Xbox exclusive and I only have a PS5, I had never looked its way. So for me, the PS5 announcement is my first real introduction to that IP.

Itís really fun and one of the most stylish, most unique games Iíve played in a long time. I canít say I consistently nailed the rhythm timing, but it doesnít really matter that much.

(Not trying to brag, but) it seems like Sony is (on a roll) ok with (Exclusives) some games being PC Ported and doing well on Steam, the (unbelievable) ok semi success of Helldivers II and seems this winning streak might continue.....a good video Pre-Review on "The Rise of Ronin" from Gaming Bolt, another Playstation Exclusive. Might tie us over till guess what, Ghost of Tsushima 2.

Updated Version....it seems like Sony is doing ok with some games being PC Ported and doing average on Steam, the ok semi success of Helldivers II and seems this might continue. A so-so video Pre-Review on "The Rise of Ronin" from Gaming Bolt. Might tie us over till guess what, that lackluster game, Ghost of Tsushima 2.

You know you are not Sony, right?

Not sure what you have to try not to brag about.

It's perfectly fine to be enthusiastic about a platform and a run of good news, but when you take it to this sort of cheerleading -- because, yes, you are absolutely trying to brag -- that veers into the sort of console warring we discourage on this forum.

Iím sorry if I already asked this, but do PS4 games play better/faster load times if stored on SSD vs. external hard drive?

K&AJones, your tongue in cheek edit of your post needs to be called out. Stop it. Just stop it.

Adam Tynerís response was not an invitation to push the envelop but a warning to evade any talk of ďconsole warringĒ and with your ďeditĒ that was a shot across the bow.

As Adam saidÖ

I know it's faster to google the answer yourself rather than post questions like this on a passive forum.

From what I understand, every game benefits somehow.

If the game has been patched for PS5 it should have a better boost.

Iíve only ever had the PS5ís internal drive and the SSD that I installed in it last fall. When I download games, I only get the PS5 version and plop it on the SSD, so I donít have the expert knowledge to say ďyeaĒ or ďnayĒ either way.

Yep. Bloodborne definitely benefitted. A lot in spots, less in others.

What would you compare it to, assuming it's not too niche a title? Is it like a rhythm-based take on the Devil May Cry action formula?

It's definitely in that vein; character action game-y, emphasis on combos, unlockable abilities, scored encounters, level design that encourages exploration, a good bit of platforming, and all that. FF16 is a good point of reference too, mostly in the way you're managing a lot of special ability cooldowns as time goes on. You're rewarded for attacking on-beat but not meaningfully penalized if you're not. (More accurately, you're always attacking on beat, but off-beat button presses don't do anything but break combos and slow down your progression a tiny bit.)

I love the visual style, the way music is woven into the gameplay is top notch ("Whirring" by The Joy Formidable is a longtime favorite, and the way it's incorporated into a climactic part of the game is especially brilliant), there's some really cleverly written dialogue, and I wound up becoming really attached to the characters and the relationships that form along the way. I was late to the party (didn't start playing it until just a couple months ago), but Hi-Fi Rush is one of the most memorable gaming experiences for me of the past few years.

Okay, now I'm interested. Especially with how you compare the combat to that of FFXVI. Hopefully they have a demo on the PlayStation store soon, so I can confirm if it's for me.

Thanks for the reply.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Sony's laying off around 900 employees from PlayStation/Sony Interactive Entertainment: ~8% of the workforce. London Studio is being shuttered. Layoffs are hitting Insomniac, Naughty Dog, Guerilla, and Firesprite, among others. Every region is impacted. Some projects have been cancelled. (Hopefully not the next Ratchet and Clank game!) Jason Schreier reports that Firesprite's Twisted Metal live-service game has been axed.

Bleak, bleak news. The only real glimmer of light is that, at least for the moment, Media Molecule lives to fight another day, although I'm kind of bracing myself for the news that Sony is killing them too.

As long as this doesnít stall the next installations of the Horizon game, Spider-Man game, and The Wolverine game, I think Iíll be OK.

Ooh, Sifu. Been wanting to play that one.

How does D2 work? Would this give you the full game up to Witch Queen content and only exclude you from whatever the newest expansion is?
