Anyway, I have to head out. It's an interesting market right now. Everything MS has done since Phil Spencer took over has been solid. Sony was already solid. I may or may not get a PS5, but right now I think I'll let the early buyers and software sort themselves out beforehand.
You are getting wise, Mr. Maritime Canine :mrgreen:

Sort of? Playstations GNM has seemed like it was why the PS4 Pro was made the way it was. I don't know if they're supporting Vulkan or not, but last I heard that was a no.
Yep no Vulkan (no need, it's more PC/mobile centric tbh), Gnm is low-level anyway:

Gnm is just really an evolution to LibGCM on the PS3, which in turn evolved from PSGL on the PS2 (though the PS2 was mainly bare-metal native like the PS1).
I still find the PS2 to be fascinating in terms of it's performance, it could really punch above it's weight. 8)

That's cool. Admittedly I know little about GNM. We'll see how everything goes, I was obviously not impressed with the PS4P. Some good games to play, then I sold it off.

I'm already likely permanently on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate anyway, so don't want to add PS+ or Nintendos whatever subscription either.
This planet ain't big enough for the both of us!
