At least no questions on it. I'm sure preorders will also begin very soon.

Right where it was to be expected. Will probably pre-order. Need something to look forward to after the election.

I really don't see how Xbox can compete with these prices. In the UK, Xbox Series S - a downgraded model - is going to be £299, while PS5 Digital Edition is going to be £359. Even in the middle of a pandemic, I don't think that price is inaccessible for the vast majority of gamers. And based on specs alone, I think the winner is pretty clear.

 

If I recall correctly, PS4 launched at £349, seven years ago. It's a hell of a thing for Sony to launch the successor for just a tenner more. It takes care of existing PS4 owners, and it's also a great entry point.

 

Well played, Sony.

The Digital Edition is cheaper than I was expecting! It’s pretty tempting.

$500 is legit not bad.

 

But I still plan on waiting to get one until 2021 minimum. 😅

Yeah same. So now I'm preordering one LOL.

The harry potter and GOW games made it a rather easy decision though lol. 

Probably will grab ratchet to hold me over til 2021.

Spot on what I expected for the price, I'm ready for it and I honestly got goosebumps at GoW xD. All the industry bullshit aside, it feels like a great time to be a gamer.

Very good competitive price tbh, and I think that PS5 is going to start with the right foot. As lunching console, I think is super nice versus what Microsoft is expecting.

 

On the other side, could be that a potential enhanced/black versions will feature online digital versions? There aren't many countries where internet can be good to allow just downloading games rather than physical, but considering the throttle of that, I hope they have already fixed it for this gen.

Just be careful with PS5 game upgrades for PS4 games

 

I had to read it twice as it didnt make sense first, probably wont be for all games, but for some Sony exclusives coming to both, take note of this;

 

-- DIGITAL PS4 exclusives, will upgrade to both DIGITAL/PHYSICAL PS5. 

-- But some PHYSICAL PS4 exclusives will ONLY upgrade on PHYSICAL PS5! 

 

Sure they will mention this more, just atm its kinda lost. Just be careful you dont plan for some upgrades and then realise you cant xD

 

Really, atm, PHYSICAL PS5 can get all game upgrades, and DIGITAL PS5 will be limited!

Holy fucking shit.

I called it at $499/$399 and I'm exceptionally happy with that.

 

Playstation Plus collection is great for those that never bought into plus and those looking to jump ship from Xbox too.

Shoot, making me decide quick on if I want to pre-order or not.

 

I probably will if a retailer near me is one with open preorders and they don't sell out too quick.  I'll likely double dip on a "slim" halfway through the gen again, so no reason to wait too long getting my first one.

1 EUR = 1 USD. Never change, Sony. Can't wait to pay 600 dollars for the standard edition in Europe.

This makes sense to me. How can you get physical PS4 disc into digital PS5 console which has no disc drive?
