Wow that price is steep. Are they gonna announce the price today too?
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2020Just the difference is price. Your calls and data will cost you maybe max 20 euros.
But it's ... moreSo phone is 800 dollars and 20 per month so 240. Thats 1040. Plus the argument was a new phone every 2 years . So in 6 years that becomes 3120.
PS5 is 600 dollars and 50 dollars for ps plus for 6 years is 300 dollars so thats 900. That means 2240 left for games.
Still cheaper ;)

That's steep considering that it's supposed to play (Audio and Visual) Real Time Raytracing games at 60fps. It would've been worth it if Sony includes PS1 to PS3 backwards compatibility by adding certain microprocessors in the new console's motherboard.
I'm okay with using PC because these exclusives mean nothing to me anyway; I can live without it.
And on top of that always calculate an external ssd.. that built in drive will be filled almost immediately.

Good tr... moreJust the difference is price. Your calls and data will cost you maybe max 20 euros.
But it's hard to compare - if you like to play games then playstation is for you. And you will still need phone for communications!

Why is everyone comparing the price to a phone... Totally different market, like complaining Bananas are more expensive than apples.
Consoles are sold with lower profit margin and made back with long term commitment of the games and subscriptions.

Good try though
yes!, 11 Jun 2020Take my money, this is imo 10x the worth of a phone and phones are twice, i cant wait for ps5 Phone is portable device and that's why the proce is like that. You cannot compare gaming device with phone if you just want to play games.
Kriegsherr, 11 Jun 2020why would the price if same as XSx be a shame? XSx is slightly ahead in terms of raw graphics ... moreThe xbox is far ahead in terms of performance not just slightly. The ps5 can't hold the cpu and gpu at max frequencies at the same time and that's before even thermal throttle kicks in. So the number you see on TF on the ps5 is not a real world one.
The ssd is faster but xbox used a better compression algorithm which bridges the gap call bcpack. In terms of audio, xbox also has its own sound engine and they are working with some companies to make audio devices specifically for it.

As long as that remains the "goal" developers aim for, I rather play games on my PC with a 144 Hz panel. Not sure if I buy one of these new consoles (PS5 or Xbox) when GTA 6 is released. I'm quite certain that a console would collect dust again most of the time, just like with PS3 and after completing GTA V.
No it wasnt where did you get that from. PS4 could match Xbox's resolution and sometimes surpass it. Some games on Xbox ran at 720p or 900p and Sony PS4 ran at same or higher resolutions.
Here is a list
Assassins Creed Black Flag was 900p on Xbox but full 1080p on PS4. There's many more in that link.
And if you do a quick google search you find this
"The PS3 went on to sell 86.90 million units worldwide between 11 November 2006 and 29 May 2017, just edging out Microsoft's Xbox 360 in terms of consoles sold."
So yeah PS3 was more powerful sold better
PS4 was more powerful sold better
