Here’s Why HDMI 2.1 Makes Gaming Better
Metroid Dread is the sort of game worth the decade-plus it took to arrive. And it's a timely reminder of just what makes this series one of the very best.

The idea of a killer app in the modern era almost seems silly. Spending upwards of $700 dollarydoos for just one experience because it's exclusive could be considered -- for those on the outside looking in -- like a huge waste of money.

Those people haven't played God of War. And certainly won't understand the IMMEDIATE need for a PS5 upon first watch of the God of War Ragnarök trailer.

Those people are silly. Not the God of War killer app.

Seriously. These are almost wasted words. You've probably seen the trailer a handful of times now. You've maybe watched reaction videos, or trailer deep-dives that pick apart every little thing. Maybe you noticed that Svartalfheim is now accessible and that the reason for its being locked by Odin was because that's where Tyr is hidden. Maybe you know he's hidden there so Fenrir can't sever his arm, which is one of the fates set to come to pass as Ragnarök descends upon the nine realms. You could be questioning why Freya is attacking Kratos in what is definitely the beginning of the game. You probably gasped at the sight of Thor's hammer, Mjölnir (as we did) and at the promise of his inclusion in this sequel. You might, at this point, just be out of breath at all of the possibilities, hidden teases embedded within the trailer and at the thought of waiting any longer for this next Kratos adventure.

Here's more from Santa Monica Studios themselves:
Fans who played the last game know they were able to visit six of the Nine Realms during their journey. In God of War Ragnarök, you will be able to visit all nine!

God of War Ragnarök will take you to the previously unreachable Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, and Asgard – as well as to new areas from locations featured in the last game. Exploring the realms will take you everywhere from verdant, otherworldly jungles to intricate subterranean mining networks.

This next installment in the series will bring you a more diverse, beautiful, and mysterious variety of locations than in any other God of War game.
At any rate, none of this is even close to playable in 2021, which is a shame, because we really need it. But at least we have more than just putting 2021 behind us to look forward to now. Watch the full debut trailer embedded below.

Something is happen for heading what now

Unfortunately I don't have enough lazy cash to add a PS5 to my collection, I still haven't been able to find a Series X or 30-series gfx card for anything near RRP, and a 1080p/4k Switch release is looming sometime in the next few years (imo).

Sony's console is way down the list atm.
