I know better now to say that I’m not going to get new consoles when they release. I said I wouldn’t for the Switch and then was there day one. I said I wouldn’t for the two new systems, and yet they were both hooked up to the TV right after Thanksgiving. Don’t tempt the hype, or you’ll hype yourself into buying these things.
The “new and shiny” disease is a real thing.
The one thing that still eludes me so far is a new graphics card for my PC. People can say what they want about how hard it is to get the new game consoles, but it’s nothing compared to the new video cards for the PC. These have been released since September and it is STILL insanely difficult to grab one. Eventually, and I don’t know when this will be, they’ll be easier to come by, but I’ve never seen it this bad this far into the release. And it isn’t just the one card I want – there’s a whole family line of these things in different versions made by different brands and NONE of them can stay in stock.
Guess I’ll be playing Cyberpunk on one of my new systems or not as pretty as I’d like on my PC.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, it’s been 2,665 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
