Excited for Horizon 2 and Miles, I hope Mikes will release on PS4 too. But nothing so far makes me wanna get a PS5 at launch. I still have a few more PS4 exclusives I want to buy that’s on sale now like Concrete Genie, Everybody’s Golf & Death Stranding. I just hope these PS4 games will be playable on PS5. PlayStation will remain exclusively for exclusives and Xbox for everything else main console.

Digital only edition, can’t hand that disc to your buddy this time if you get that one.

Probably also lacks any true form of backwards compatibility. Since it can't read old game discs.

I'm getting the vibe that that will be the $499 PS5 so they can come in under the wire in some form or another.  Only reason I can think of they would do this out of the gate is that they need some kind of more reasonable model to avoid sticker shock.  That's practically admitting you know your console is going to be costly.  Digital consoles have typically been trying to pick up some late adopters because they tend to piss off retailers that cannot make add on sales to justify low hardware margins (as easily).  I know digital is more of a thing now, but still ...

1. Ugly console (if it was in black it would be way less ugly)

2. Spiderman launch title not enough to get me to be a day one purchaser.

3. Lots of cool game trailers, most of them likely won't be out till late 2021 or even later.

 

No price announcement? This is getting pretty stupid with MS and Sony waiting till the last second to get a $$ on this new gen.

I don't care what a console looks like, as long as the games are fun to play.

Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros 1-3 have appeared on pretty much every Nintendo console, and Mario Bros was on consoles before Nintendo started making them.

Can’t ignore the facts tho...

Not sure what's so funny when you can get 40 hours out of a good pair of rechargeable batteries vs 2-4 hours from a PS4 controller...

I'm personally excited; I probably won't be able to swing first month purchase (I've bought a year or two after release, which definitely paid off CAG-style), but with Horizon West, Miles, R&C and an actual media remote again, I'm in.

 

On another note, is buying Death Stranding Deluxe for $31 on the PStore a good deal?

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.

EXACTLY. Let the other guy make the first move, and undercut him WITH an additional accessory to boot.

Let your enemy come to you; never rush in headlong. Stand fast, learn--and exploit-- their weakness.

Enemy? It's Sony and Microsoft not USA vs North Korea lmao.

 

Also, MS is likely waiting for Sony to announce price and Sony is waiting for MS to announce so it's a stalemate at this point.

The Pathless (Abzu dev's new game) is also coming to PS5 alongside the PS4 version that was announced a while back.

Interesting. Whatever money is saved with the all-digital version, I assume will be spent on extra storage. Games are only going to get bigger, and the proprietary SSD means not all externals will perform the same or you'll need to buy licensed external storage. 

yeah the only way I could make sense of that is if they either a allow for use of any memory cards and externals or B make it 50-100$ because it's not worth any more than that when you are gonna have to spend money on proprietary crap. Which sony is well known for being terrible and over priced with.

You'll be able to put in an additional SSD for extra storage or use an external HDD for storage of games when you're not playing them.

I'm actually considering the digital version. I've gotten by with a 240gb SSD in my PS4 for a couple years. Since getting a gaming PC an Xbox really doesn't appeal to me this time around since Gamepass is a thing. If they somehow get it priced around $400 I'll possibly preorder.

Final Fantasy X/X-2- Ps2,Ps3, and Ps4. You could add a few other FF titles to that list.

It's super easy to put rechargeable batteries in an xbox controller and you can keep the controller when you get new batteries.  You just sound spammy.

 

I may jump on Spider-man early if there is a CE, but will wait on the console. All of my friends are on xbox, so it makes little sense for me to change over.

This looks like a Lost Legacy/First Light type expansion versus a full blown sequel.  I'm wondering if they'll add some sort of gimmick to take advantage of the fast SSD.

We can add Dragon's Lair and Doom to that list.  Heck, Doom was ported to a freakin' car.

Correct. Spiderman 2 this ain't.

 

Which is sad, there really isn't anything that warrants a day one purchase, and even though I knew that would be the case, I was hoping sony would prove me wrong.
