Definitely intrigued: only caught the last 45 minutes or so, but I liked what I saw overall. Console's design made me think of Alienware PCs for some reason. As long as the backwards compatibility to PS2 is still in play, and the price is less than $500, count me the flux capacitor in for the standard version. Y'all can keep the digital editions. :D

Has any other game ever been on 3 generations of consoles before? GTA V - PS3, PS4, now PS5.


I’m sure there are others but RE4 comes to mind.

The Todd Howard Video Game experience is in PS3,4,VR, and I bet it will be in 5 too

No price reveal for either edition is incredibly disappointing for their “E3” presentation. Guess I will just wait for more information like everyone is. I hope there is nice difference in price between digital and disc based console. I may consider the digital only version. Some nice first party game reveals though.

 

At least $50 I would think.

I'm watching on the Twitch app on my Xbox (lol) and it's totally fine. A tad blurry compared to what I'd expect for 1080p but I think that's compressed footage, when real people are on the screen it looks fine-to-great.

Yeah, I tried Twitch instead and it was better.

Wish they would have clarified their stance on BC.

My gut tells me they don't have much to announce or they are still working on what they can and can't do. If they were fully BC or at least with PS3, I am sure they would have stated something by now. It's a big bullet point. The lack of info about it means it's not likely IMO. PS4 games will work on it so that's something and a form of BC.

Didn't you watch the beginning?  They showed him......I know what you mean though.

The PS5 disc version makes it look like Sony was going all digital and then lost their nerve and decided last minute to include the option for a disc based system. just looks awkward to me.

While I may not like the wait for more information, I understand Sony keeping their cards close to their chest.  Remember when Sega announced the Saturn for $400 and said it was literally available for purchase the moment it was announced? Then Sony stepped out to the stage, said "$299", and won the generation with just one word.  Or when Microsoft went through a lot of BS about sharing games and then Sony made a simple video showing how easy it was to share them?  Then they won that generation.

 

We may not like that we're not getting the information we want now, but Sony is playing it smart.  All they have to do is wait for Microsoft to announce a price and release date. If Sony then announces the PS5 at a lower price and an earlier date, especially with legacy BC support, then they will win the generation before it even starts.

Games were definitely a mixed bag.
Spoiler

Aside from some of the games and the console reveal, I was very disappointed they were not clear about which games are multiplats or timed exclusives, and not a single peep about backwards compatibility or price.

I get that they're worried about undercutting but PS4 has such a huge advantage when it comes to marketshare over the Xbone that it just seems overly cowardly. The Saturn was coming off the Genesis and Sony was a brand new competitor. Completely different dynamic.

No way would they do that after last gen and what Xbox went through.  The console with a drive is probably going to be around $500 so removing that probably gets them a sku at the $400 desirable price point.  Similar to the 360 when it had a core and pro sku or the PS3 when it had a 20 or 60gb sku.

Not a chance. $50 difference, tops.
See: Xbone S (which also has a Blu-ray UHD player) vs. SAD.

Or else they're the same price and the SAD playstation is the rumored 2tb sku.

I’m not convinced that we see a different price point between the two SKUs. An all digital system would hopefully have more storage, which could even the price out. Sony also hasn’t said anything about expandable storage.

^ That's also believable.
Makes it hard to decide which to get given that the discs need storage to install regardless..

That seems like it would be terrible especially for marketing.  I see a larger drive version coming out down the line, but not making people choose a physical drive or bigger hard drive at the same price.

Ratchet was really the only game they showed that couldn't be done on PS4 with each world loading instantly from the SSD. Looks a bit too crazy though.

It's still possible that a number of these will be cross-gen, so it might be by design.

FYI console can be placed horizontal or vertical per Sony:

Ratchet & Clank if available on launch is good enough for me. Looks like some decent looking games for sure. I really liked the particle effects in Ratchet & Clank. For prices I'm guessing $500-600 honestly with if the digital has the same space it being a cheaper version. Likely will have better HD and the same price. I'm guessing $600.

Sony clearly stated the system will be compatible with certain off-the-shelf SSDs. They will be certifying them on an individual basis to ensure they meet the speed level of the included one.

Glad to be wrong.
Looks much better horizontally as well, but still has issues.

It's what you don't see that's important - cracks in walls that you slowly crawl through or doors you slowly open while the next area loads.  GOW 2018 looked incredible but I won't miss loading screens at all.
