Cheaper or not, I greatly prefer downloading games. Saves space and reduces clutter. I don't need 200 game cases laying around. Only place I am physical is the Switch, since Nintendo's digital game sharing is antiquated. I have two Switch units due to kids, had to go physical because of the limitations.

A job well done by Nintendo. If you had been left to your own choice, you'd have made the wrong one.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Most people feel that way, and perhaps in their situation it makes sense.  But with kids at home, I love being digital on the ps4.  My kids can switch between games without having to get disks out.  Kids in particular are always changing up what they play.  I typically pick a game and stick with it, over the summer my kids will play 10 different games in a day.  Plus the wife is happy that the room is clean.  I am fine being 95% digital.  I haven't had any issues.

Switch is the only one of the three consoles where I'd consider going digital. After the $100 game vouchers, 5% back in gold coins, and "tax free" because you "live in Washington state" Nintendo games are a great price digitally. They are something like $45 with no tax. That's a pretty fair price for launch day of a game IMO.

I agree, it's so nice having games all on the system straight up. I still try to buy all physical where I can, because I get em for 48 new, 20% off still. For me, a console benefits less due to it being under the tv. A portable benefits nicely by having digital. I'm hoping for a 512 GB chip this holiday, my 400 is packed. Oh, and I'm in California, and dont pay tax on my digital purchases either, it was very surprising.

Yeah, their lack of real game sharing is a hard pill to swallow.... I picked up a pokemon lite for my girl and got irritated when I was faced with that reality. I've picked up almost all the big games on cart, luckily, so she can play around 50 of my games, only mario odyssey is digital and three houses. Come on Nintendo... atleast let your audience share the damn games with their immediate family. Unfortunately, they day they do that will be the same day they bring voice chat to the system.

Price will be 500-600$ for the PS5, probably coming in two versions depending on the internal SSD size

Stadio pro also gets you free games

The internal SSD won't be 2 TB for the base PS5

Who has an empty 2 TB HDD just around?

If Sony allows free 1080p PS5 game streaming to PS4/PC, it will be a very competitive offering

a) we don't know the price, actually i would not mind an increase to the 600 tag for a premium sku, but i'm in the minority

b) cool, so you should add that cost to your comparison

c) we don't know, that spec has not been announced, but 1TB m2 drive would be fantastic, why would we need 2TB right now? Buy one in a few years when it's cheaper

d) i do, literally just around doing absolutely nothing right now. the question is, why the hell would i need it in connection to the ps5? hdds are slow as shit.

e) it's called PS Now, and it's around for a few years. you can stream or download current gen games to PS4 and PC (download obviously only on the PS4). btw it costs $60 per year and the games are free

All that niggling is useless. Focus on the important things: Stadia works on a technical level and it will get better. Nextgen will cost a premium and a lot of casuals will look for alternatives.
