As soon as something like Persona 6, or Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part ? come out for it.
A good fighting game, or a new Monster Hunter would also be compelling.

I don't necessarily need a large number of good games to be out beforehand, because with any Playstation you already know what kind of games it will get.

Maybe I'll wait for the PS5 Pro. More realistically, I'll wait until there's a game I really really want that's exclusive to the PS5.



Signature goes here!

Probably I'll preorder one as soon as possible regardless of the games.
If I don't want it at launch, I can still cancel the preorder or sell it with a slight profit.

Worked for me, when the PS4 launched and most of the games I wanted were delayed:

In November 2013 I got the preordered PS4 for €399 and sold it through for €565 (minus €51 eBay and shipping costs).
In February 2014 my preordered Killzone-PS4-bundle arrived for €504 (including KZ: Shadowfall, a second DualShock4 and the PS-camera) and sold that extra stuff for a total of €145 (minus €12 eBay and shipping costs); of course I played through the game first.

Normally I would have canceled the preorder of the first PS4, but that would also have canceled my preorder of DriveClub for €20.

So eventually I got my PS4 in February 2014 for €256 and DriveClub at its release for €20:
399 + 504 + 51 + 12 - 565 - 145 = 256



Gunna preorder and stand in line

Wait seriously? You can play PS4 with Xbox 360 controller? Or GameCube? Or Switch Pro?

That would be a game changer for me if true.

Company named Brook makes some adapters to use 360/XBO controllers on PS4 but they're quite expensive, £30-£40. link

There are also many officially licensed controllers:

Oh my goodness I love that top one! I had no idea!



I usually wait around a year after launch before buying a new console, but I might wait less for the PS5, since it will be completely BC with the PS4, which means that I can keep playing the games in my backlog while I wait for the exclusives to drop, with enhanced performance to boot.



I'll probably get one at some point but to be honest I rarely play my PS4 so I'm in no hurry to upgrade. I spend my time on the Switch these days, just for the convenience factor of it.

That's what I've been thinking. I don't always care about buying it day-one, however with PS4 BC, I may pre-order it this time round.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
