Same price point as the Series X. Some great looking games on show there Deathloop looks absolutely amazing!

Bit underwhelmed if I`m honest.

Was on the pre order notification but I`m going to wait for the launch games to be announced.

Yep Deathloop looked pretty good once I realised what you needed to do.

Probably wait to see what they do with GoW, RE8 and the Hogwarts game (which actually looked pretty good)

I think there might be only so far they can go with graphical improvements. I see the new final fantasy is an exclusive, which probably means they'll be hoovering up all the decent games again.

I think Apple glass will be big pretty quickly and others will follow the hardware . With augmented reality the possibilities are huge .

I think it's getting to a point where games can't catch up with the graphics capabilities of new devices. I imagine most of these new consoles will be future proof and the current and new release games will only be the tip of the iceberg.

I thought the difference between Ps4 and Ps3 was far more noticeable. Due to the fact the current consoles are pretty good.

Does the PS5 come with 4k blue Ray ability? Just that I was thinking of buying one and they are still pricy. Seems daft if the PS5 can play them.

I would prefer them in all black. The new colour and design really doesn't suit my TV cabinet as everything in it is black (sky box / ps4 / Internet router) 😂

I will hold off until the initial rush. My mate has pre ordered 2. He said he doubled his money on ebay when PS4s came out as you couldn't get them anywhere. A scumbags trick but I'm sure people could be buying multiple ones with an eye on Xmas😕

Will definitely be money to be made on preorders, I wouldn’t be touching eBay though. All it takes is someone to buy it and open / return it and you’re screwed, plus 13% taken in fees. Far easier to shift on fb marketplace

I’m a big ps4 fan but it was a while before titles found their feet with that so I’ve decided to switch back to pc initially so playing the 3080 lottery today

Well the games I was looking to purchase the PS5 for are now launching on the PS4 with free upgrades to PS5. So I guess I`m not now in a rush to purchase a PS5.

Also looks like Xbox will have more next gen release games than Sony, which after all the talk from Sony on how next gen is a priority for them seems like they have shot themselves in the foot here.

Yeah the PlayStation stuff was weird, I'm a PC gamer but if I had a PS4 I wouldn't be in any rush at all to get a PS5. Also worth noting that if you go for the digital only console to save money the games are extortionate, Demon Souls is 80 euros on launch, not sure what it is in £.

I’ll pick one up in 6 months time. Had a PS4 but other than finishing god of war I didn’t really play it much. More interested in the Xbox but even that I will wait for. I use my Xbox more for streaming than playing games on.

one thing to watch for on xbox is the game pass ultimate subscription. going to be available in the UK. so you pay per month and get your console and game pass ultimate which includes EA play when that launches and also xcloud. over a 24 month period it works out cheaper than buying the console and the game pass on top of that. 0% finance.

I never buy new tech as they are always riddled with bugs when they are first released so I tend to wait a year while they iron out the bugs and usually cheaper to buy as well.

Playstation 5 games to start off with won’t be mind blowing

but if you look at ps4, towards the end of the generation the graphic became mind blowing. God of war, tlou2

I’ll be getting it, sick of feeling like an apache helicopter is lifting off

When you buy a PlayStation when their first launch it’s usually for its best hardware. Later their end up reducing certain parts to make it cheaper .
I sold my ps2 the same price as a new ps2 was because you could play copied games on it

Not necessarily look at the ps pro rip off after everyone had the PS4 and then there was he ps4 2tb version.

Technology outside the PlayStation has allowed that to happen . HD has come on a bit since PS4 was originally launched . Originally a PlayStation had a 10 yr shelf life now that could well be getting shorter .
I recon Apple glass will influence Sony’s next VR
