Man, I loved San Andreas. Also, I can't believe V came out seven years ago.

Spiderman Miles Morales looks cool.
Yeah it does. Sony always seems to have the better exclusives. No way I can convince the fiancé to let me buy two $500+ consoles. But I'm very much open to suggestions on how I can make that happen.
I'd imagine you do have a wedding registry...

The PS5 Slim is going to be a huge seller in 2022.

So it's basically just a mid-90's computer tower?

Yep. Not sure how the hardware is getting that much larger that quicker with today's technology, but here we are.

So that's why they're selling it potentially at $699? lol because it is a computer tower? Which doesn't make sense, because technology has gotten cheaper over time.

According to Matt MacLaurin, the vice president of UX Design at PlayStation, the PS5 packs a lot more heat than the PS4 could even dream of.

"Thermals. This gen is little supercomputers. While the 7nm process delivers amazing heat performance for the power, the power is very extreme. This tech is still so fresh it throws a lot of heat so we need room to dissipate."

I wonder if it's going to be loud as ****.

If the $700 price tag is legit, that's going to be a hard sell for a lot of families. Xbox could come in at $500 and win the early release sales just based off of price.

Supposedly the digital edition will come in around $500, but won't have an optical drive. Which boxes those buyers into becoming digital only purchasers which is a content creators wet dream.

I prefer an optical drive, but with my PS4 Pro the only disc that is ever in there is the GT:S disc tifosi gave me. But with the PS5 supposedly being backwards compatible I'm going to need that drive.

My PS4 already sounds like a jet, can't imagine what this one will sound like.

Digital is great for convenience. I still don't understand why it's the same price as a physical copy, though. I also understand that you don't really "own" it the same way you do a physical copy. Will I still be able to access those games in 10-15 years the same way I can pop in Goldeneye or Contra? Probably not.

I hate to admit it but I've been mostly digital this gen, out of pure laziness.

This is the boat I'm in. I only switched to digital after getting the boot from PS; all of my game purchases prior to that (including all my discounted buy) were discs.

I likely won't be getting a 5 until the first price reduction, whatever the launch price might be. So by then, they may have several of my favorite games remastered for the new box, so it could be a moot concern. (I'm okay dropping a few dollars on remastered legacy titles vs playing them upscaled on the old media)

The last time I worked in the music business was 2002. Boilerplate artist agreement language still charged a 'packaging deduction' to the royalty account for every download.

It also paid a reduced royalty for CD sales because they were a 'new technology'.

I'll likely stay with my PS4 Pro until Rocket League matchmaking becomes untenable. Or if my various GT:S groups move on to GT:7.

Do you have one of those aftermarket fan/base things?

I use that stand from Kootek with my 4Pro, and it really helps.

I have a PS3 and Xbox One X, and while I won't be buying a PS5, I hope they changed the ergonomics of the controller. The Xbox controller is superior, IMO.

There are Xbox style PS controllers (and vice-versa). I believe they're all third party, though, so buyer beware.

I'm going with the Series X. I prefer Xbox and all of my friends still play on Xbox. I would love to be able to afford both, though, for Spider-Man alone.

PC is such a pain in the ass with managing the components. But console is starting to get that way, so have at it.
