I think I'm done with gaming subscriptions once my PS Plus expires next month. I've bought MLB The Show the past two years on Xbox, so I'll wait for it to drop to $20 on PS5 and buy it there this year. I just find it strange that it's currently on sale for both consoles, yet the Xbox version is $20 while the PS5 version is $40.

It's free on Gamepass. If you can stand being a year behind, every EA Spurts game is free, too.

By the end of the weekend, the feeling will pass.

Played a little bit today and enjoyed it. The running game seems better than it's been in a while and it seems like they slowed the game down a little so all the animations play out a little bit better now. I'll play a few more games over the weekend and may actually buy a Madden game for the first time since '21 when it goes on sale.

I finally got around to downloading and playing the 2-hour MLB The Show 23 Trial on the PS5 and I'm impressed with it. This was the first time in a long time that I could see an upgrade in the graphics from the previous year. I haven't seen any frame rate issues either, but I've played the previous two versions ('22 and '21) on Xbox. Apparently, the game runs better on the Playstation hardware.

The one upgrade that may convince me to buy it once it's $20 on PS5 (currently $20 on Xbox) is the improved player movement and fielding. I went into '22 and did fielding practice for 20 minutes and then switched over to '23 and did the same, and the improvement was very noticeable.

I'm tempted to buy it on Xbox, since it's currently on sale, but I already have all my settings saved for the PS5 version and I'm sure it will drop to $20 on there soon too.

I know, it's crazy how trashed things are and it's why I take reviews of gaming accessories with a huge grain of salt. It seems every headset and controller except mine completely break apart in 6 months.

I can't argue with that. I don't understand how people can spend so much money on things and then treat them like shit. Every game, console and controller I've owned is still in mint condition, including my NES and Genesis.

My younger son takes after me. He uses isopropyl rubbing alcohol with Q-tips and compressed air to clean his controllers every few weeks.

My son and I watch a YouTube channel called TronixFix, where he buys broken consoles and accessories to fix them. There were PS5 consoles that were in such bad shape only a few months after it was released. What do these people do to get scratches all over their consoles?

I'd have no problem paying the money for an Elite controller since I really like the way they look, but I've heard they have quality-control issues and are also prone to stick drift.

Maybe they'll add Hall Effect sensors to the Elite 3.0, which would make it a must buy.
