You do know PC's can be hooked up to a TV and used just like consoles right?. And i dont mean this in a smart way but with the size of the PS5 the is not really much excuse for "PC towers are too big" even more so when the is smaller towers then the PS5.

JuliusHackebeil bartkuz (on 17 January 2023)

It is definitely weaker than last year with Horizon, Gran Turismo and God of War. Not every year can have so many bangers directly from sony. But hey, good games nontheless. And who knows for what surprises we are in. And there is quite some stuff going on with playstation in general, considering that they will launch psvr in a month or so.

Is it weak if I only have a PS5?

zero129 Pinkie_pie (on 17 January 2023)

No. In fact i wouldnt say it was weak even if a user owned both a PC and a Ps5. Maybe for that user but it still cant ignore the fact that not everyone owns both making it not weak.
For instance i own a PC but im not going to call this showcase weak as its pretty strong for the users who own a PS5.
