I hear you on the disc drive. But I guess they need to make a profit lol. I mean, either way, I'm still getting the disc drive. I'll buy any disc drive console while they still offer it because I still like physical media. But I suspect they have it priced that way so they can migrate people to digital downloads. Digital distribution is much cheaper than having discs. They don't have to worry about manufacturing, distribution and retailers taking a cut. They throw the game on the PS Store, that's basically straight profit. Only expense really is to keep the servers running.

Either way, I'm super excited. But I'm gonna buy the console after the holidays. Apparently, Sony said they'll have more units available at launch than they did with the PS4. But sites are already crashing and it seems like more hassle than it's worth right now to have it day 1. January/February stock levels will stabilize and I can walk into any Best Buy and walk out with one :) Plus I'm still unemployed so there's that too.

Pre-orders will be available starting as early as tomorrow at select retailers, so please check with your local retailer.

We’re pleased to provide choice to gamers with two PS5 console options at launch, depending on if you want a digital-only experience or prefer disc-based gaming. Whichever PS5 you choose, you’ll enjoy the same breathtaking, next-gen gaming experiences. Both PS5 models use the same custom processor with integrated CPU and GPU for high-fidelity visuals, including 4K graphics and ray-tracing support, as well as the same ultra-high-speed SSD with integrated I/O for lightning-fast loading. PS5’s 3D audio and the DualSense Wireless Controller will also provide the same heightened sense of immersion on all PS5s.

We are proud of the breadth of games being created for PS5, and it’s our goal to continue filling our portfolio with new, rich experiences from the most talented game creators in the industry. Today we shared a sneak peek at the following new games coming to PS5:

Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition (Capcom)
Final Fantasy XVI (Square Enix) 
Five Nights at Freddy’s Security Breach (Steel Wool Studios and ScottGames)
Hogwarts Legacy (Warner Bros. Games)
New God of War title (Santa Monica Studio)
These newly revealed titles, along with the games we’ve shown previously, represent the best lineup we’ve ever seen in PlayStation history. Games like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, and Demon’s Souls will launch alongside the console. Our own Worldwide Studios titles will be priced from US$49.99 to US$69.99 (RRP) on PS5.

Additionally, we know that the PS4 community will transition to PS5 at different times, and we’re happy to announce PS4 versions of some of our exclusives. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will also launch on PS4. While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch. The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive.

For PlayStation Plus members, we’ll have a special new offering on PS5 – the PlayStation Plus Collection**. PS5 owners with PS Plus will be able to download and play a curated library of PS4 games that defined the generation, like Batman Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Fallout 4, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, Persona 5 and many more. The PS Plus Collection will be an added benefit to the existing PS4 benefits that PS Plus members receive for a single subscription price.

Also launching this November is a slate of new accessories:

DualSense™ Wireless Controller (standalone) – US$69.99/¥6,980/€69.99 (RRP)
PULSE 3D™ wireless headset – with 3D audio support and dual noise-cancelling microphones US$99.99/¥9,980/€99.99 (RRP)
HD Camera – with dual 1080p lenses for gamers to broadcast themselves along with their epic gameplay moments US$59.99/¥5,980/€59.99 (RRP)
Media Remote – to navigate movies and streaming services with ease US$29.99/¥2,980/€29.99 (RRP)
DualSense™ Charging Station – to conveniently charge two DualSense Wireless Controllers US$29.99/¥2,980/€29.99 (RRP)
This year has been unlike any other, and there have been many challenges the world has faced. Everyone at PlayStation, along with all of our partners in development, publishing, technology, and retail, have devoted a lot of effort to launch PlayStation 5 in time for the holiday season. We’re all working closely together to achieve our mission of delivering the best that gaming has to offer to our community. I truly want to thank you, the fans, for your tremendous support (and patience!), while we take this journey to PS5. We can’t wait for November to arrive – when you’ll be able to get a PS5 console in your hands to begin exploring new adventures and creating new epic memories for many years to come.

its very good to hear the digital version of ps5 is $399.99, but i thought the ps5 with uhd blu ray drive cost $100 more is kind of a big rip off.  the 4k uhd blu ray drive shouldn't cost them more than like $30 to make.  So in my opinion, the ps5 with 4k uhd blu-ray should cost $449.99 instead of the $499.99.  besides, the ps5 isn't as powerful as xbox series x to cost the same as series x.  sure, ps5 has like 2x faster loading ssd but if they could sell the disc-less version at $399.99, then they should have no problems selling the disc support version at $449.99.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S Release Date and Price Revealed
« Last post by Titan on September 11, 2020, 07:50:25 AM »
Oh. And the other concern I have regarding the Series S and why I think it may flop is just the value of it. It comes with 512 GB of storage. That's not a lot even by this generations standards. And with games next gen expecting to have some pretty hefty install sizes (hell, Last of Us 2 was over 100 GBs in itself!), 512 won't get you that far. Neither will the 1TB in the Series X and PS5. But here's the kicker. On Microsoft's consoles, you can expand the storage. However, you have to use a proprietary expansion SSD made by Seagate. 1TB Xbox expansion costs over 200 dollars! And you have to use it! You can't use an external except for storage apparently. You can't run the games off of off the shelf externals. As far as I know, you can expand the PS5's storage with off the shelf M.2 SSDs, following the cadence of past generations (my PS3 and PS4 have been upgraded. And it took me about 5 minutes to do on each. Super simple); and apparently it has an expansion bay. So that 299 Xbox Series S that people save money on buying will likely cost them over 500 dollars to make it usable. I'd imagine most people who buy one will be out of space within a year. At that point, if they buy the expansion memory, they're already over the cost of the Series X and PS5. I dunno. I think a lot of people are gonna be pissed about their Series S long term because they aren't thinking about this kind of stuff.

Don't get me wrong. I love Microsoft's consoles. I adore my Xbox and Xbox 360. In fact, I think the Xbox was the better console of that generation, now that I own one and experience it. I love how the Xbox does 480p right out of the gate as opposed to PS2's 480i natively and 480p game specific. My Xbox looks amazing on my HDTV. My PS2? If a game doesn't do 480p, it looks like a pile of shit. But I've always hated how Microsoft doesn't allow for upgradability. The Xbox, if your hard drive goes, you have to hack the console just to get a new hard drive to work. And the hard drives in there are just ATA hard drives. The 360? Not all of them had drives. But if you had an Elite or newer consoles that had a bay, upgrading is not as simple as far as I know. On my Elite, it's a module you have to buy as a unit; granted it is easily opened and you can put in as big of a drive as you want. Granted, on the 360, I believe you can use an external to run games off of, it looks sloppy in a setup IMO.

It looks like a speaker. Hot plate if it's flat lol. Some have said it looks like a drive thru ordering speaker. Honestly, I think it looks dumb but whatever. As long as it doesn't overheat, who cares. I also am wondering how good it will do. It does 4 terraflops instead of 12 and is stripped down compared to the X. I've also read it's closer in specs to current gen than next gen. So do developers have to make a game for both systems? Will they get to a point where they say fuck it, it's not worth it and only develop for Series X or go to Sony because they have a synergized offering? I dunno. Price to value, it doesn't seem worth it. If I'm spending cash on a next gen console, I'm spending the extra for the full experience. I'm very confused by this direction. But I guess they're market for this is just the casual gamers who play shit like Minecraft and Xbox Arcade games I guess. Any core gamer wants the full shebang and 4K 60FPS glory.
Gaming Discussion / Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S Release Date and Price Revealed
« Last post by Paul2 on September 10, 2020, 03:31:04 AM »
The entry-level next-generation console from Microsoft, the Xbox Series S, was leaked earlier with the design and the estimated launch price of $299 by BWW Media Group Brad Sams and was confirmed by Senior video game analyst at Niko Partners Daniel Ahmad.

More information on the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X has been leaked via sources who spoke with Windows Central.

The Xbox Series S will be priced at $299 at retail, while the Xbox Series X will launch at $499. The two consoles will have a monthly financial plan called Xbox All Access as well that will be pushed by retailers worldwide. The Xbox Series S will be $25 per month via Xbox All Access and the Xbox Series X will be $35 per month.

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will both launch on November 10, 2020, according to the sources.


That is cool that the xbox series X cost $499.99.  $100 cheaper than what ign predicted would cost like about half a year ago.

the newly announced series S is even cheaper at only $299.99.  very nice.  funny that some commentators in that link said that "The Series X looks like an old mono radio." lol :laughing:

he/she probably meant the Series S looks like an mono radio.  Another commentator said it looks like a subwoofer.  lol too. :laughing:
