Forums - Sony Discussion - Official PS5 Reveal Leaks Topic

Its a placeholder price. In any case £600 would be pretty reasonable for 2tb model, considering the quantity and speed of the SSD. Its pretty much cutting edge right now.

I have my doubts that they will launch with 2 SKU's and they'll just have one with 825gb base. In any case if Sony does launch with a 2TB SKU I will opt for that.

100-150 difference from 825Gb to 1,75 Tb could be reasonable and make a lot of people choose the more expensive. Since I don't want to have an extra SSD I would make the calculation on the cost per Gb and if the 2Tb did see good value I would go for it as well.

Yeah I mean 825gb is quite small and I would have no trouble filling that up in a years time. £100 extra for 1.15tb is really good especially since we won't have to wait for a compatible 7GB/s NVMe drive, that will be more expensive coming from retail vendors.

Assuming there is a 2tb SKU. I would like to see a £499 base model and £599 2tb model. Of course the lower the better but yeah I don't think these consoles will come cheap.

I doubt there is a 2TB model.
Cerny specifically said that 825 was the ideal storage solution. So the next would be 1650.



So, it's almost time. 9 hours until we ars getting ready with our feet up and nervously tapping away on out phones looking at a countdown timer. Is this the thread fo release our thoughts or is this still a leaks thread? If this isn't the thread can someone direct me to the one I need to tag?

That was in reguards to cost of drives, and it effecting the price of the PS5.
Ei. It was a sweetspot between whats needed by avg consumer vs "bang for buck" with SSD prices, and effect of a bigger drives on total system costs.

They balanced these 3 things, and went with 825GB.

All the old PS4 games can be run off a external normal HDD.
I wouldn't be surprised if most indie games can as well, and some few PS5 games from 3rd party that also release on PS4s.

So basically that 825 gb is just for the PS5 games that need it.
Its probably still recammended to get a external drive, if your a person that likes to have alot of games installed.
(and install everything that doesnt need the SSD, on the external drive)



I went to bed last night and the last thing I saw was a still from some alleged Batman game (WB Montreal). Looked shady as hell, but did anything come out of it??

Rumors of HZD2 with a 2021 release date and FF16 moneyhatted like FF7. Also GT7 with no release date. You can guess some of the games by the publisher. For example I’m guessing the Konami placeholder is Silent Hill. Rockstar, maybe GTAVI? The Agent returns? 2k sports titles, surely NBA and maybe WWE.

That makes no sense. Why moneyhat a PS6 game this far in advance?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

That's not quite the case.  

Cerny said "that for 12 channels, 825 GB is the most natural choice." 

He said that before going into the discussion about the sweet spot.  

The reason why is because chips are made in multiples of 2: 2 GiB, 4 GiB, etc.  The PS5 is using 12 64GiB modules.  The next step up is that 12 128 GiB modules.  

Note that 12*64GiB = 768 GiB = 824.6 GB.
