Now we all know the official prices of PS5 and Xbox. Xbox Series X is priced at $499.99 and Xbox Series S is priced at $299.99. Playstation 5 is priced at $499.99 matching Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 Digital edition is priced at $399.99. A lot of my friends said that Microsoft won the console war already and the reason is Xbox Series S price and Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Series S is surprisingly inexpensive and a lot of people can afford it. Some people will see that it is $100 cheaper than Playstation 5 Digital edition, so it is easier for them to make a decision. Xbox Game Pass is becoming really impressive, something that Sony Playstation Now wasn’t successful with. I am a subscriber of Playstation Now and I can’t play games via streaming. I have to download the game in order to play, and most games I can’t even download. The library isn’t that great as well, it is very limited. Playstation should consolidate Playstation Plus and Playstation Now and make them one platform. If Xbox Game Pass get more subscribers, they will be the Netflix of gaming, which is the thing that no one was able to achieve so far.
When I bought Red Dead Redemption 2, I really couldn’t go beyond Chapter 1 because of my PS4 Pro fan noise. The fan noise was so high that I can’t focus at all even with the volume being high. When I searched online, most of the solutions were about cleaning the PS4 Pro by using a compressed air can and removing the dust. I went and tried that solution and it never worked. The issue was more complexed than that, so when I asked around. I was told that the first model of PS4 Pro has this common problem of fan noise. The reason is because the thermal paste dries up fast with the first model. The fix is simply removing and cleaning the dried thermal paste, and apply new one. The noise dropped by 60% and since then I started playing on my PS4 Pro. There are tons of guides that shows you how to replace the thermal paste on PS4 Pro. Check them out and try this solution if cleaning out doesn’t fix the issue.
I have been playing video games since the early 90’s and I played lots of video games. From all the games I played, 5 I considered the best video games of all time and that completely changed my life. I remember I was so in love with each of these games, and it was a total different experience back then. Since I played The Last of Us, I didn’t get that same feeling again. Even The Last of Us, that feeling was much less than the other four games in the list. I can’t wait for the next game that will give me the same exact feeling where it is a complete game changer.
1- Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time (N64): This is my favorite game of all time and Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time was the perfect game of all time. The story, gameplay, music, and bosses were so perfect. I enjoyed going back and forth as a kid and adult in the game. Also the mini games were so amazing using the sling shot and shooting arrows to have more capacity. I completed Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time more than 7 times.
2- Phantasy Star Online (Sega Dreamcast): PSO was the first online game I played back in 2001. I used to play with my brother and friends and I made lots of friends online. The best part of the game when I get a rare weapon and go check it out.
3- Pokemon Red & Blue (Nintendo Game Boy): Pokemon Blue was of the best games ever, especially when I figured out that I can catch Pokemons using a Pokeball. I enjoyed the experience so much that we used to trade Pokemons with friends. The best part was catching the legendary birds and Mew Two.
4- Metal Gear Solid (PS1): Kojima delivered a total new experience with Metal Gear Solid and I still think that it was the best Metal Gear ever. I really wish they do a remake for PS4 or PS5. I will buy it again for sure. Back then it was something totally new when you sneak and hide from enemies.
5- The Last of Us (PS3): I played The Last of Us when it was first released, and mainly the story telling and way of fighting was so impressive. I pre ordered The Last of Us 2 a long time ago, and have been waiting to play it since they announced the game.
These are the 5 main video games that changed my life, so share yours with me in the comment section.
Phantasy Star Online (PSO) was of very few games that completely changed my life back when it was released. The first time I played PSO was on Sega Dreamcast back in 2001. It completely changed my life and it was my favorite game for few years since I played it. I remember I used to play with my brother and friends. We used to connect online via dial up and the internet used to disconnect a lot. I still miss those days a lot, and now it is time to play Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2) on PC. Sadly I no longer have an Xbox One, because I sold it. Now I only have Nintendo Switch and PS4. Since there is no release date for the PS4 version, I will be playing on PC. I will move my Mac Mini from my office to the living room and I will connect it via Xbox One Controller for PC. My Mac Mini has a Windows 10 via Bootcamp, so I will play the PC version until the release of PS4 version. Hopefully Sega don’t take a long time to release the PS4 version or even a PS5 version.
This is one of the rarest Playstation editions to ever be made. Few years ago, I thought that the 20th anniversary will be the rarest Playstation ever, but that wasn’t the case. The 20th anniversary was limited to 12,300 units worldwide, but the new 500 million edition is limited to 50,000 units. I waited for many hours to get it, and I saw the pre-order button on Amazon. I clicked it after refreshing the page constantly, and boom it was sold out. I don’t know what people do to buy such rare items in split of a second. This PS4 is a master piece, so check the video of the unboxing.
