I’m psyched for tomorrow, hoping we get the full launch lineup and preorders go live in the next day or two.

Hopefully tomorrow we at least get a price, if not the ability to start preordering.

It's their last chance to announce Demon's Souls as a launch title or else I'm OUT.

 

I have plenty to get through on game pass and neither system has sold me on a reason to own them yet.

I'm willing to bet that Sony has ordered more digital PS5s then the demand will call for because they know people will buy whatever they can find during the holiday. Of course the latest "what are you getting?" poll from IGN showed that 4 times as many people wanted a disc version over digital.

I’ve had the same thought. It brings back memories of the 360 launch. Every store got about 3x as many core units as deluxe (I think those were the names?). All of them sold out instantly despite nobody wanting the core model with no hard drive.

New rumor. $499 for disc, $399 for digital. I guess that we will find out for sure in 14 hours.

I was originally going to get a PS4 Pro during the holiday sales, since I generally ignore new consoles for a few years. At this point, should I get a PS5? My understanding is that it will do the "boost" mode for PS4 games that the Pro would, but might be even better, making the comparison closer to deciding between two graphics card upgrades rather than distinct console gens.

Also, has anyone seen a clear source on whether it will support Vita Remote Play? I found some articles from 2019 and earlier this year, but the wording seemed speculative.

I bought a launch PS4 Pro and my console sounds like a jet engine. Not even kidding. It's the loudest console I've ever heard in my life. Newer revisions are supposed to be quieter so if you buy one make sure you buy it from somewhere where you can return it in case you're not happy.

 

A quick search shows the PS4 Pro is currently selling for $399. For that price I would 100% buy a PS5. Even if you have to pay $100-$200 more it's worth it to get a next gen console, and yes all PS4 games will run better on the PS5. Of course I would wait for reviews on the PS5 before buying the console and it's possible they might be hard to find this holiday. Good luck!

Apparently preorders for the PS5 are rumored to open after the presentation is over tonight. So, we are most definitely getting the prices today.

I can't shake the feeling that it's incredibly fucked up that they keep actively trying to sell Persona 5 Ultimate edition after Royal released.

They actually discounted MK11 Aftermath + Kombat pack this time.

I may pick up Everybody's Golf this time.

Happy to be wrong. Final Fantasy 16 looks cool so far! Went back to a few basics it seems, story wise.

I used to love the Hot Shots Golf games, and you can't really beat that price.

It looks pretty good, even though I'm not the biggest Harry Potter fan, I am a sucker for games with character customization.

Is this that spy game that was supposed to originally come out on PS3? Wasn't it called "The Agency" or something? Oh wait. It's that one where you keep dying.

Looks a lot like Dishonored 60s/70s edition ... might buy it, might wait for reviews.
