I personally can’t go back to my PS4 only thing the ps4 has goin for it is the storage. Having limited storage is finally making me finish my ps4 games on it. Better performance, graphics, loading times, it just works -Todd Howard

Oh and wifi 6
Oh and quieter. Screw the jet engine

I'd keep the Pro. I'm using mine for PS4 games that are in my backlog and have no business being on a PS5. Plus my Pro has a 2TB HD while the PS5 only has 600GB.

Or you can put your PS4 games on the 2TB external HDD and hook it up to the PS5. I have 4TB full of PS4 games on the external HDD setup as an extended storage. PS4 games being play with bad loading times only get move to the PS5 SSD.

Scored one from Amazon. Now to sell my PS4 Pro...

edit...was sitting on almost $500+ credit for Amazon too. So it's almost "free". Merry frakkin Xmas to me, you filthy animals.


Now is the time to sell your PS4 Pro. I just sold mine locally for $365. $135 to upgrade to a PS5 which plays PS4 games better, new warranty, plays 4k Blu-ray, is a no brainer. If you can get anywhere close to that, sell that sucker and never look back.

Haven’t considered that though is need to buy an external adaptor or a new external HD. My Pro is the god of war limited edition, which made it easy for me to decide to keep it. I did sell my original PS4 to a friend when I got GoW Pro.

I made the mistake of hanging onto my 60gb original fat PS3 when I got my ps4 pro. Not going to do that again.

Gamestop is allegedly offering 325 tic. I'll go that route today since I hate selling things online.

Also..wtf but it took almost 3 hours for the reset/wipe last night. I had no idea...

No you can't. Unfortunately it doesn't work like Xbox credit.


Ah, too bad. Thanks for the info. Now I'm bummed I didn't pull the trigger on the PS5 I had in my cart on Amazon yesterday.

Same. If there's no major upgrade, it stays on the PS4.


5 second load times are major enough of an upgrade for me.

It's ok, you made a reseller very happy.

I used offerup because I did not want to ship and wanted to get cash so no one can pull anything. You can at least be a little picky and work with people who have feedback and not a brand new account. Very easy and just met at a police station. YMMV, but I've seen people here terrified of meeting a stranger. Just use common sense, go to a police station, and go during the day. Good luck!

I kept my PS4 when the wife kicks me out of the room for taking too much I can use remote play from the living room and access the PS5 from there, pretty cool feature. Also when I have friends over I have like 400 games in PS4 so yeah. PS5 is only for me :)

PS4 until the PS5 Slim comes out. By then PS5 will actually have games on it that aren't PS4 enhancements. Other than 4K, faster load times and 60fps (all which I don't care about) What's the difference between PS4 and PS5? Graphics look the same.

I personally like the dual sense rumble features they’ve added in, especially the resistive triggers but I get what you mean, if you don’t care for any of those other features there’s no point

This is just how video games will be now. Graphical improvements will be minimal from now on. Also, many gamers would prefer a solid 60fps and fast load times over better graphics. The difference for many, between 30 and 60 fps, is huge.

That being said, show me a game on the graphical level of Demon’s Souls on PS4…?

I really wanted to love the PS5 but there wasn’t anything pulling me in. As an adult, I don’t need that much to play at once and the amount of games that almost require daily logins means even less time for variety.

I am waiting on Gran Turismo 7 though and will probably buy it back then. I am kinda shocked that a used PS5 still fetched $800. At this point, selling off the PS4 Pro is tempting too, with those approaching $350-400.

I really wish Sony would do something like Gamepass, or bring some old IPs forward soon.

If you have a decent PC, I'd highly recommend a month of Game Pass for Forza Horizon 5. I played GT back when it was a brand new franchise and I can see serious shades of that game in FH5 when it comes to tuning and realism for cars. It might win you over, if you've not already tried/played it.

Oh I’m well into the Forza universe on my XSX. That was what I was alluding to as keeping me occupied. Don’t think I can top anything that console can do with a 1080ti though haha.

Still eager for GT7.

Ugh went to Amazon book store today and saw they have PS5 on display. Rushed to check out and saw the person in front of me had just bought the last PS5…it was painful to watch..

Sometimes Amazon makes 0 sense. But I'm patiently waiting on the PS5 delivery.

Walmart is pretty reliable.  I don't know of anyone who had their order canceled.

I had the same issue on my PC (using chrome). Timer said 15 minutes originally, got down to 1 minute, then jumped to 10 minutes and never moved again.

Oddly enough, on my phone I then pulled up the Walmart app and went to the PS5 product page, and it gave me a wait time of 25 minutes. Once I hit 10 minutes, it then changed status and said it was my turn to buy. I'm not sure if the app recognized that I was already in line or whether it just put me in line again, but I managed to get one through the app.

If others are looking to get in on the next restock, maybe try the app? I've tried getting one through the web site a few times now, and my wait timer always got stuck. Maybe just luck, but my first attempt using the app worked.

I was worried about that too. Especially when the FedEX driver pulled up outside and sat in my driveway shuffling around in the back of the truck for a suspiciously long period of time. I got worried and went out to ask what was going on. When I was told that they lost one of my packages, I got really concerned. Turns out the lost package was something my wife had ordered. My PS5 was safe and sound. Big scare though.

Actually, same for me. The app worked for me.
