Hogwarts Legacy

Jr.Jr. Registered User regular
I want to play Hogwarts Legacy but I do not have the new Playstation or Xbox and they did not make it for Mac yet. Is it worth getting a PS5 for it or should I just wait until the Xbox One version comes out? I kind of want a PS5 for Ratchet and Clank Rift game they made too because I like the Ratchet and Clank games but I'm not sure if it is worth buying a PS5 yet due to the high price it's $500 but they will probably lower it this year

    I don't think there's any reason for us to believe there's a price drop looming for the PS5 as they have been selling out pretty consistently since release. I don't think 1 game is worth buying a console for but if you have a large list of must have games and the cash to spend then I say go for it.

    Early price drops are generally for underperforming games. This one checks a lot of boxes and is outpacing last year's big darling open world game even in the face of serious controversy. The soonest it'll get a discount is the next big seasonal sale and it'll probably sit out the first one at that.

    My general rule: if you're going to spend $x on a console, you should reasonably known going in that you'll spend a similar amount on games (not necessarily all at once). And after only 2 of my 6 originally planned Wii games actually came out I've amended that rule to only cover *existing* games.

    By my rule that would be 8-10 games that I can't play but can if I get a PS5, and 7-9 aren't going to be brand new hotcakes AAA titles so I have cheaper games that I could play in the mean time.

    XBone and PS4 versions are scheduled for April 4. Optimization issues might be fun though.

    Shut up, Mr. Burton! You were not brought upon this world to get it!

    It's a good game but nothing revolutionary enough to buy a console for imho.

    While racing light mechs, your Urbanmech comes in second place, but only because it ran out of ammo.

    Sony increased the price of PS5 last year, so I wouldn't hold my breath on it going down any time soon.

    I'm personally waiting for the PS4 version, it looks like it could easily run fine on that.

    Unless you've got the spare scratch lying around and were just looking for a reason to get a PS5, there's no reason to not just wait until the "old gen" versions come out. Like, there's nothing in that game that is a system seller. At all.

    . . . fun game though. Just not "500 dollar entry fee" fun.

    Ps5 is good and has lots of good games especially with the ps+ stuff. There's also the discless version but I've gotten a lot of use out of playing games and then ebaying them to recoup the cost myself so ymmv with that.

    From my understanding the Harry Potter game is about putting down a slave rebellion on top of giving money and cultural support to a terf so, probably don't worry about buying that one.

    i would spoil a game if it was funny and if it had a chance of ruining the experience of someone psyched to hand over money to a dangerous bigot. primarily the first thing

    it feels like you could probably petition the mods to just ban threads on HWL?

    Spoiling games is mean spirited and has no place on a game forum I would not spoil any game someone was looking forward to playing

    Okay but hear me out

    Now you don't have to play it and waste your time and give money to the dangerous bigot.
    Win win!

    Get a ps5 though they're good. Cyberpunk supposedly got fixed but id probably play that on pc with the option to do so for mods and such.

    It is kind of odd you're ignoring the rampant transphobia part of the meme to be mad about the spoilers, which is exactly what the meme is saying. It is fascinating.

    Honest question: why are you trying to engage the user in a conversation they (clearly) don't want to have? I mean this is an odd thread in general (not the least of which the fact that the thread seems to be a black hole where time stopped on the 20th) but as far as I know there's no rule against people discussing their intentions or desire to play the game which makes outright spoiling a game for another forum user a "goosey" thing to do (given the forums policy; if there has been one stated I haven't seen it).

    . . .also mildly humorous the thumbs-up given to CP77.
