Rethinking the controller? 

 

Oh god..... I hope this doesn't mean Xbox Stick Layout like all the officially licensed 3rd Party PS4 "Pro" Controllers 

i read in this topic that it looks similar to the PS4 controller, they should stick with their design. I am not a fan of the flipped analogs myself. Hopefully they will chill out on the censorship too.

If they rethink the controller, please make the options button larger or do something else for that menu!

 

Any ideas on what the cost will be ?  $499?  $599? (US)

I knew it, it couldn't be 2019 as many thought a couple of years ago.

Tlou2 remastered on release, calling it now, no matter ps5 being retrocompatible with ps4.

Exciting news. I'm leaning towards getting it launch day. Can't wait to see the games.

I'm guessing it'll be at least $500

There's no way they could be packing all that power into something that costs anything less.

Seriously considering making this my first ever Day One console buy. That and maybe even the Scarlett so long as Microsoft don't fook it up in the run up like they did the Xbox One

I’m thinking of selling my ps4 pro when it comes out and maybe the store will also have some kind of exchange deal

Trump just made a trade deal with Japan and it's not a tax, it's a tariff

I wished they went to hybrid drives instead of SSD.  Maybe do a PS5 with hybrid and PS5 Pro with SSD.  Lowers the cost and keeps the consumers happy.  

 

For me it will come down to launch titles.

99% sure it'll be USD $499. Considering the specs, $399 is too cheap. Unlike Nintendo, Sony can't afford selling consoles at a loss or minimal profit because they can't depend on the sales of first party games like Nintendo. Also, there's no way they're making the $599 mistake again.

Unless there's a few day 1 titles that blew my mind I'll get it during summer or fall 2021. 500 bucks or more will be launch price.

I imagine there will be multiple price points.  I bought the PS3 at launch for $499 I believe as I knew I would be replacing the HD at some point anyway and much prefer wired (faster, more dependable) to wireless.

 

Were there multiple models for PS4 at launch?  I bought a year into it and don’t recall.

Yes they can, that's what they did with the ps3 and with the ps4, they made a profit due to royalties and ps plus

Ofcourse I am excited for it but I really want to see the launch line up. With TLOU Part 2 and Ghost of Tushima  confirmed for PS4, I am really curious to what surprises they might be holding out on.

A red flag for me so far is the fact that they say this will ship with an SSD. I get it, ssds boot faster and all but they lack space unless you're willing to pay tons of money. So this combined with the fact that games are now taking 100s of GB of space, seems to me like they're continuing the shitty practice of not giving you enough space and making you buy external hdds (or maybe they will include both an ssd and an hdd, highly doubtful though)

 

Seems like yesterday they were making games that were 40 - 50 GBs in space. Now these games are taking over 100 GBs. Assassins Creed Odyssey from what I hear is in that neighborhood.

 

Completely fucking ridiculous.

Guarantee there will be less people buying TLOU2 remastered than those who bought the first one for PS4

I'll be an optimist and hope they start adding an additional 02 games for PS+ monthly games, by then.

My price estimate is around 700 for a base model and 1,000 for a pro model considering its including an SSD and graphics processing with ray tracing

There was only one model at the PS4's launch that came with a 500 GB hard drive. The single price point worked much better than the multiple price points of the PS3 - it allowed them to announce definitively the launch price with no confusion. My guess is they'll launch with one price point again for the PS5.
