Streaming superstar Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has explained why he is “concerned” about the PS5 – noting that it might have problems with its specs given the size of the console. 

With the next generation of consoles on the horizon, Sony finally followed in Microsoft’s footsteps and revealed the first look at the PS5 during an over hour-long event on June 11.

Alongside the console reveal, excited fans also got to see plenty of new games that will be hitting the next-gen either upon launch and in the not too distant future. In the aftermath of Sony’s event, the hype for the new console has skyrocketed, but Shroud has revealed that he harbors a few concerns.

Sony revealed the striking design of the PlayStation 5 on June 11.

During his stream following the PS5 showcase, the former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro had been discussing the show with a few of his pals. While revealing his excitement for both Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet and Clank, however, he noted that he thought the event was actually “average.”

Shroud also played into the jokes around the PS5 appearance, also adding that he had some worries for the console off the bat. “It looks ok, but I’m just concerned because it looks pretty small,” the Mixer star said. “So, I don’t think it’s going to be that good of a console specs-wise if it’s that tiny.”

Up to now, all signs about the PS5 have been that it will be a pretty powerful console – clocking in with 10.28 teraflops in GPU power and a custom 825gb SSD. Sony themselves have claimed it will be “100 times faster than the PS4.” Though, Shroud isn’t quite sure that it’ll live up to the hype. 

The streamer further added that he believes the Xbox Series X is going to be the better console, but he is unsure how much better it will be than its PS5 counterpart. As the next-gen console wars continue to rage on, we’ll just have to wait and see as to which one comes out on top.


Bryce Hall puts Quen Blackwell on blast after Griffin Johnson TikTok drama

Following on from Quen Blackwell and Griffin Johnson’s social media clash, Bryce Hall has now jumped into the mix and lashed back at the original post that kickstarted the feud.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest TikTok kerfuffle, don’t stress. Here’s a quick refresher. Two days ago social media celeb Quen Blackwell reacted to a TikTok post featuring Bryce Hall and Addison Rae.

Their relationship has been hot and cold throughout most of the year. Blackwell took the opportunity to joke about the on-again, off-again couple, yelling “no” at the top of lungs in her own post. While Johnson was the first to take issue with her comedic reaction, Hall has now fired back as well.

Rather than calling her out on social media, however, Hall allegedly got in touch and hashed it out directly. It’s clear that things didn’t go down all too well between the pair as he’s since gone on to expose their private conversation.

“So I confronted her and talked about it,” he said. As it turns out, Blackwell was forthcoming with her intentions. “I only do this for likes and being relatable,” she explained, according to Hall.

“I get it, you’re just doing it for numbers. It had like 1.5 million likes, I get it,” Hall assured. As social media personalities, both have their own audiences and both create content to generate engagement. While that TikTok may have struck a nerve at first, it seemed as though they were able to get on the same page in their chat.

That mutual respect didn’t stand for all too long though. Blackwell claimed she wouldn’t do it again, though that wasn’t the case as she touched on the subject 24 hours later before deleting her videos. “It’s so fake,” Hall said in response.

“Now that she’s deleted the videos, we’re friends again. We’re gonna be like the rest of these social media people and just act as though nothing happens behind the scenes.”

Clearly not too pleased with how the drama unfolded, Hall can at least respect that Blackwell deleted her latest videos. At the time of writing, this seems to be the end of the controversy. Though it could all kick off once more if Blackwell goes back on her word yet again.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated if the latest TikTok drama continues to explode across social media.
