Jesus. I didn't realize it was that much of a jump. No clue what the conversion is between USD and CAD, but still seems like a lot.

We get fucked on the conversion when it comes to games. Its never straight up. The console should cost just over 600 but its rounded up I guess. New games here cost 90 bucks. It hurts.

Well you were right, it was too expensive. I didnt notice but Walmart automatically added a 130 dollar PS5 headset into the cart as well. Will now try and return that shit

EDIT: What a series of events to lead to this. I bought through my brother in law who lives with us and works at Walmart so got a discount but used his card. He's not gonna want to go to Walmart and insist they take the headset back as a return. Will have to go through the 3rd party seller because apparently Walmart wont takes returns on those. I'll likely be shit out of luck but Ill try anyway

Damn that sucks. Yeah, it seemed a little steep, even for the conversion. Time to get that PC up and going, brother! I'm pretty sure Steam does regional pricing for their games too. You'd probably save heaps of money.

I'd play with you, Broth!

Also, we totally need to do a FTS Among Us night. It's basically just mafia, which a ton of us have played.

3 out of at least 5 needed. 10 is preferred, but not required. WHO ELSE?!

PS5 arrived. Astro's Playroom was awesome. This new controller is really fucking impressive. A number of games to look forward to later this year but I'm really looking forward to when games are developed just for the PS5, no backwards compatibility, because thats when the system will really get to shine.

Yeah, the controller is great. I thought it sounded gimmicky till I actually used it. Not all games take advantage of what it can do but Astro's Playroom and Returnal made me a believer.

Returnal is not normally the kind of game I'd sink a bunch of hours into but it does look fun, hard but fun, so will probably just wait for a price drop.

Control was free a few months back so I might play the PS5 version of that. I also might replay Last of Us 2 since it's been patched to support 60 fps and looks even better now.

If Control has raytacing enabled it's a must

Also it's just a very interesting game with challenging bosses

Astros playroom is such a perfect little game to bundle in. It's fun and is a perfect tech demo to show off everything the controller can do. It's Nintendo like. It's also such a treat to go down memory lane with the little PlayStation hardware rewards. It just struck a perfect balance of everything for me.

I highly recommend getting the Pulse headset before getting Returnal. The 3D audio is top notch and the combo of the sound and controller together is fantastic.
