I was there day 1 for PS5....and it was absolutely worth it. For the next-gen upgrades of current-gen games (Well, Ps4 upgrades) as well as Demon's Souls remastered, absolutely worth it. Astro's Playroom, though rudimentary, was quite the experience as well.
I don't see how anyone can be like 'I don't see the point'. Just like any console, it's an investment. Sony and Microsoft both have been on pretty predictable trajectories, so if you like what they've been doing all last gen you'll know whether or not you'll like what they're doing this gen. and honestly, of every generational transition, this one has by far been the best. With both XSX and PS5 doing almost perfect backwards compatibility to the last generation, as well as a bunch of games getting free PS5/XSX upgrades as well as old games running better and smoother on the new hardware, I have to say I'm genuinely impressed and happy. I think this gen, when coupled with the Switch, is off to the best start of any generation.
I already own like 15 PS5 games. sure, most of those are just free upgrades to existing games, but it's not even a year in and I've already got that much (with Horizon and Returnal and Back 4 Blood all on my must-have list, as well as FFXVI and a handful of others I want). IT's a great start to the generation and I wouldn't have it any other way. Bring it on!
