Yea, I have a lot of physical games, like 20-30 so it doesn't make much sense getting digital for me since it apparently will have ps4 compatibility.

Be interesting to see what they do. Microsoft have a really good pay monthly strategy that's very tempting but if Sony put their digital version right in the middle I don't see them losing any existing customers. Some of Microsoft's might be annoyed that the cheaper XBOX is pretty gimped as well. Sony might do well to do the subscription thing and undercut the high tier.

Even then Microsoft won't totally lose out as Sony are using their cloud iirc

Yea, hands down the Game Pass on Xbox shits all over Playstation Now and I have Playstation Now... I think Sony could definitely invest more into Playstation Now to bring it up to the same standard as Game Pass.

Not convinced, £70 controllers, £70 games. I'm on PS4 right now and XBOX is starting to feel like the better option.

Third party developers are trying to push £70 price increase as well, it's not just a Sony thing. 2K Games is the main culprit, they were the ones that first came out with it awhile back.

As for the controllers, its not such a stretch, the ps4 controllers were £50 at one point and the PS5 ones have additional features.

It's an artificial inflation though, a game is either fun or it's not. People are just being conned that "lulz, more $$$ for sup3r h1gh f1delity pl0x" makes sense. Plus everything now is rammed with micro-transactions.

Controllers are just the latests money spinner for console manufacturers to balance out subsidising the price of the consoles imho. The controllers are no better now than they were with the PS3. It's stupid because people do still play games together.

think i'll leave it until after xmas, I was going to buy one at launch but the launch titles don't seem that amazing (apart from Demon's Souls), if FF16 was a launch title i'd have bought it straight away.

My son is nagging me relentlessly now about getting a PS5 for Xmas.

/edit: And surely that will mean upgrading his telly/monitor to a 4k one. Twat.

Kids make friendship groups based on that. I've always been PS so Matthew has a PS4. Hence his new best mate is one of the only kids who is also a PS4er. I think I've narrowed his social circle and he will probably end up being a serial killer.

Look on the bright side, at least he was a Sony fanboy :p

I saw a thing where a bloke was so bitter he didn't get one, he made a bot that created ebay accounts and maxed out the bids with the intent of not actually paying for it.

Not all heroes wear capes.

Aye he did, it wasn't over PS5's though it was over the new RTX 3000 series graphics cards :p his bot puts fake bids in up to $50,000 then never pays them ultimately stopping scalpers from reselling the cards on eBay.
