Astro's Playroom, NBA2K21, Deathloop, Kena: Bridge of the Spirits, Bugsnax, Godfall, and Jett: The Far Shore are all coming out before the end of the year, just like Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Hitman III shouldn't be too far behind, with a January '21 release.

..Yep...but Cerny and Sony are counting on and expecting...that the NVMe SSD's will be up to that speed and specification by year's end which at the pace Computer Tech goes he's probably right. I don't think or see players trying to get an additional NVMe SSD right away as the 850gb will be fine for awhile along with some wanting to play PS4 Games which between now and then are some solid choices. I just want to see how this actually works...adding another SSD and all while having a external USB and the main drive. If that's the case, I'd do the same thing as I do our Gaming PC; have a drive for the OS and put everything else on another drive to keep everything nice and tidy.. Will it be as simple as just switching between the SSD's which would give us even more choices.

Rumored price, $700. It's likely wrong. I know this price would not sit well for gamers.




This was taken from a pre-order listing. So it's probably not accurate.

My guess is $500. Maybe $600 and $500 for the no disc-drive model.

re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I'm still a firm believer that neither Series X or PS5 goes above $500. It's suicide. That's probably just a placeholder price.

Also, it never dawned on me that we never got a *new* Ratchet and Clank game this gen, just the 2016 remake (which was technically new to me since I never played the original).

re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Before the digital only system reveal I figured 500 was the price point. Now Iím leaning to the disc based version being 549-599 and the digital priced at that 500 price. I canít see Sony pricing either version lower than 499 so the disc version will have to be 50-100 dollars more.

After the presentations Iíve started talking myself in to no day one purchase this generation and waiting for that first price drop. I think initial pricing is going to be an important factor for a lot of people.

I'll say $400/$500 for digital/disc. I don't think $50 is enough incentive for people to jump to all digital.

That $50 was the difference in cost for the Xbox S All Digital. But you may be right. I think they discontinued it.

My backlog of games goes back to the 360/PS3 so I'm going to wait this one out this time. Feels like I just bought my One X and PS4 Pro.

Possible, but we won't know about it for sometime. People are going to preorder whatever is available as soon as those links go up, either for themselves, Christmas presents, or Ebay.

Iím with you one that. I might have finished the backlog by the time of the first price cut or if not the first revision.

As much as I'm impressed with the PS5....I'm still not in that Must Have, Get Day One Camp....I still have some concerns with the manufacturing and will it meet demand without sacrificing quality with this China Virus still in effect. As it stands now over 108 Million PS4's have been sold...the PS5 Streaming Event was the most watched Gaming Event on YouTube ever with nearly 10 Million.. I saw a article the other day they are just starting on the Software Side....

Right now there's still a lot and plenty on the PS4 side...we have The Last of Us Pt 2, Ghost of Tsushima, AC; Vahalla coming up and a lot of older games with life in them. I still have stuff in Warframe, Fallout 76, Elder Scrolls Online, finish AC: Odyssey, have yet started COD: WWII.....

I'll probably try and get it but won't go ballistic and have a meltdown if I don't which everyone knows full well any and all stock will be gone in the 1st hour....actually a lot gone before even going on sale thru backroom and employee deals if you know what I mean. I just don't see how Sony can meet the obvious demand when this becomes available. It was something like 10 million PS4's sold August 2014 and now it's 108 million. I don't see how with current situation especially in Asia Region where the bulk of manufacturing is they can have even 10 million ready.

For those thinking about getting the PS5 yet want a PC...you can actually get both and have a matching set.... https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/202...-think-so-too/

I have to say a big no to the digital only model. Downloading 100 gig games is a cap and bandwidth killer. A 50 or 100 dollar discount isn't enough for me to go without a drive. A drive that I can also use to play movies, which should have been a part of the Pro in the first place. Discount digital copies by 10 bucks and you get closer to making it worthwhile.
Totally agree. I put a 2TB drive in my PS4 and I still feel cramped for space sometimes. Sure would've like more space in the 5 (without adding on).

It reminded me initially of those MSI Prestige PCs but yeah that's much closer.

I have my thousand dollar gaming PC sitting on the floor next to my TV stand (that I also use for video editing)

I'm the same way, I keep tons of games on my system at once. If moving between "normal" external HDD and the onboard one isn't pretty quick (since that's the only way you can play PS5 games), that'll probably curtail my buying of games a bit.

As to those worrying about the size of the Special SSD NVMe....from what I know, we get an additional SSD Slot...basically no different than PC's having a extra slot to put a drive in. Still no details as to how and where but this is a huge plus. We'll be able to keep the OEM Drive with OS and whatever, add another be it 250gb or 1TB while having an outboard USB Drive to play PS4 Games and store any PS5 Games. I don't think we'll be hurting for storage that bad.

re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I think I will focus more on completing 4 or so titles at a time than having so many titles at once. I have greatly curtailed my game purchases, my last one was Animal Crossing in March and the free Lego Ninjago on PS4. The next is Last of Us 2. I am going to try my best to continue reducing the number of purchases so close together. I still think that 80-100 gb games will be the norm moving forward and this will quickly eat into our storage space like a gold digger depletes a bank account.

At least they changed the update process so that you don't need double the space just to update a game. That was beyond ridiculous.

re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

So rumors floating around on pricing (got these from my daily update via Google so take with a grain of salt). Nothing seems ridiculous or odd but the headset is intriguing.

PS5 - $499 for regular version, $399 digital
Vertical Stand - $25
Remote - $30
PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless headset (VR??) - $160
HD Camera - $60
Controller - $60
Controller Charging Station - $30

When they talk about a 3D headset, they mean 3D sound, like the Platinum headset, can make directional sound not only 360 direction but up and down as well.
