@Kidfried Yeah I was thinking the same thing, might as well play those games all ps5'd up.

@WebHead I'm not ashamed to admit I'm already saving up for a 5.

@Kidfried as am I. Figure we're probably 18 months or so out from launch. Saving just 50 bucks a month you'll have $900. Enough for a (probably) $500 console, a few games, a couple controllers/peripherals, and a new plus sub. Add in since it'll be BC could trade in a ps4 to get even more stuff. Plenty of time to be there at launch with proper planning.

@redd214 Unless circumstances change, I will probs have enough disposable income from a couple of months to get a PS5 if it costs around the 500 quid mark. I usually get a bonus from work around about the time it will launch too so that will go towards it. I will most likely have a tonn of games to play from my PS4, so unless there is something jaw dropping I might not even need to buy any new games. Peripheral wise I will most likely only need a headset, if my PS4 ones don't work with the PS5. Everything else I can sort out a bit later.

I remember when my PS4 came out some crossgen games were more expensive on the PS4 than on the PS3. Even when they both released simultaneously. Hopefully backwards compatibility will put a stop to that.

@JohnnyShoulder yeah hopefully this will be a very smooth generation shift. Plenty of time to save up for it too!

@Ryall really? That definitely wasn't the case in the US. All the launch games I got were and price as ps3

Persona five with the most recent example it’s recommended retail price was £50 on PS4 and £40 on PS3 although of course Shops discount at launch but the PS3 version was still about £10 cheaper. Call of duty ghosts actually allowed you to pay the extra £10 to use the PS3 disk as proof of purchase on the PS4 @redd214

@Ryall I recall it happening later on in the gen but not at launch. I remember I bought 4 Ps3 games that had ps4 versions coming out at launch and I exchanged them after it released and they were all same price.

I think it’s a case of different publishers making different decisions. When I got my copy of Legend of Zelda : breath of the wild day 1 I noticed that for Wii U version was £10 cheaper than the switch version. @redd214

Tbh I would be interested in a $50 cheaper PS5 All Digital Edition.

@WebHead
I don't see the point tbh
It's cool if they build a different console, smaller and more convenient so that gives a choice for people who want that. But then that would cost for a different design, manufacture wouldn't it?
If it's exactly the same console as the one with a disc but with a useless empty space in it then it's just lacking the option with a sort of unfinished console.

It may make sense if they do like next gen Xbox with two different consoles though? One of them being less powerful but more affordable?

@JJ2 Yeah I don't see Sony releasing a disc less console straight away or a smaller console either. That usually comes later in the generation when the parts and stuff are cheaper, and technology has advanced a bit.

I think the reason that MS can and want to do a 'discless' Xbox is more to do with their Game Pass programme. Between that and EA Access, and of course Games with Gold, for a 'small' fee every month, you never need buy another game ever - of course you could through there MS store and thus ensuring they have you locked into their 'ecosystem'. Regardless of how they 'dress' it up, all the 'digital' content, whether its games, movies or TV box sets, you have to buy through MS. If not, you have to subscribe to MS for access to games and subscribe to play games online. Of course you can subscribe to Netflix for movies/TV but most TV's will also give you access to Netflix via smart apps so no need to use your console.

Point is, a discless box may seem like a 'good' idea, but it also locks you in to that ecosystem. If you are happy to do that, then fine - but you can't take advantage of Game, Amazon etc sales and any used games. Talking of used games, anything you do buy is absolutely worthless - not to you but to anyone else so your 100's (if not 1000's) spent on games is worthless - plus the fact that the console will be worthless too if/when its turned off from accessing online - no value to retro gaming to someone else. At least with a disc and physical games, especially if you had updated them, you can play the best and patched versions. The only person who can play on a discless console would be the person who's account is linked to it and who knows if you can once online is turned off.

At the very least, my XB1X can be used as a 4k HDR Bluray player and play ALL my disc games which will ALL have value to anyone else as they can use the console as a 4K Bluray Player and play ALL my Disc based games too - whether the console is online or not.

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

@WebHead That I could see, but not for a couple of years after it is launched.

@WebHead @JohnnyShoulder I think we are likely to see a super slim PS4 without a disk drive before that kind of revision is introduced into the PS5. The disk drive is a far more significant part of the cost of the cheapest console.

Ryall

JohnnyShoulder

@Ryall Or a ps4 pro slim?

@JohnnyShoulder I’d rather see them widen the division put a Ultra HD Blu-ray drive in the pro slim and take the drive out of the base super slim entirely. That way you’d have both the cheapest possible product and a more premium product.
