Only 1TB?
You can get 4TB SSDs with heat-sinks for less than 4x that price.

Look at the date of that review and then see that he says only 1 and 2 TB were available and 2TB were very expensive.

Cool! I told them to send it to me with other items tomorrow instead of rush delivery today. It's going to take at least a day to move everything off my current 1TB M2 SSD.

I went ahead and ordered it too, I was going to live with the internal memory, but buckled at this price. Said it wouldn't get delivered until Friday, so I went ahead and slow shipped it to get the $1 credit

Oh darn. Go figure. I buy the 2TB Samsung SSD only a few weeks ago from Best Buy for $139 and it gets discounted to $99 for Prime Day.

Yeah, and if it didn't have a serial number, I'd say buy the Amazon one and return it to Best Buy.

I finally got around to playing Axiom Verge 2 today and one of the very first abilities you get in the game like 30 minutes in is the ability to hack enemies and the trophy for hacking an enemy has only been got by 17% of people who played the game. Looks like people lost interest in this real quick.

I'm playing The Quarry right now, and I was surprised to see that only 57% people who started the game (at least on the XSS/XSX) finished the first chapter. 29% didn't even finish the prologue!

It's not, but it is clunky and kind of boring early on.

It does have a heat-sink, and it's actually $178 if you have Prime.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

The "PC version" has a larger heatsink and seems to be the preferred on, that one is 209 (though you can certainly try the cheaper laptop one).

Xbox really screwed up here, their drives are still like more than 2x the price

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Tom Henderson on "Trinity", the supposedly impending PS5 Pro targeting a November 2024 release:

according to my own sources, who asked to remain anonymous because they were unauthorized to speak on such details, a PlayStation 5 Pro is in development and it's codenamed 'Trinity'.

If you think the codename has some form of familiarity, you're right. Sony has used The Matrix codenames in the past, with the PlayStation 4 Pro under the codename 'Neo' and PlayStation VR under 'Morpheus'.

It's understood that Trinity has been in development since early 2022, with sources citing that although the rumours of a canceled PlayStation 5 Pro project are always "fun to read", Trinity has been the only project in the works for the Pro model. Despite dates being tentative, it's understood that demo events for the PS5 Pro are already ongoing, with the majority of studios receiving development kits by late November 2023.
Although the Pro's specs were difficult to pin down, admittingly due to my lack of technological prowess, sources have stated that Trinity with have 30 WGP and 18000mts memory.

As for the consoles performance targets and as to be expected, the PlayStation 5 Pro will be targeting improved and consistent FPS at 4K resolution, a new 'performance mode' for 8K resolution, and accelerated ray tracing.

Whether or not a PlayStation 5 Pro console is desired enough in the current market remains to be seen, but as of writing, the PlayStation 5 Pro is in development and is targeting a November 2024 release date.

I think this is ugly as sin and can't imagine anyone actually wanting one, but hey, it's a nice endorsement opportunity.
