    Who’s going to buy the $500 one? I just can’t see any possible reason I wouldn’t buy the digital only

    Digital only. I am concerned about my XSeries S decision since there is actually a gap in performance between it and the XSX, but these are the same hardware -optical, correct?

    happily surprised to see this is coming in 2021. I expected a 2022 date with the COVID delays

    Missed the showcase....is Playstation + collection a new, separate thing I have to pay for, or something I get with my current PS+ subscription when I get the PS5?

    I buy a lot of games second hand, probably have to go with the $499 model

    it's part of your PS + subscription, all those games free and ready for DL on launch day according to Sony.
    presumably they get performance tweeks on the new console but I don't think those details are out yet

    Feels like the Xbox digital version is the way to go for me, since Gamepass has a huge library of games.

    PS5 disc-version might be the way to go there, since many of its best games won't be part of a subscription model, meaning using the old "buy used and sell" model.

    I wish you all the best getting a pre-order. With the big games coming to PS4 for a bit I’ll chill with that until GoW.

    What did you guys think of the game pricing. Figured we’d start seeing $70 games.

    You could be the guy that grabs a disc version and then a digital version then cancel the disc version.

    Sony announced a list to be notified of preorders going live and the person that broke preorders going live tomorrow was a journalist, not Sony. That is pretty fucked up.

    The digital sales both Sony and Microsoft do regularly allow you to buy most games at the same discounts you can get them from at a retailer and it’s a thousand times more convenient never having to look for a disc. I don’t think I’ve bought a physical game since the Xbox one launch

    yeah outside of being able to save $5 a week after launch its a far better option
