I never really thought the PS1 or PS2 were that great looking either.
So in that sense, its not bad. Hell even the base PS4 wasnt that looking too good, until the slim came out.

I'm only giving it a sideways (Flat) score since that's the only way I'll be having it...
4/5
I'd give it a 5/5 since I personally love the design, but daaaaamn it's so big! Then again I guess that's a good thing, should be quieter with less chance of it overheating, right? :o

Seems to be designed to have the best flow of heat while the console stands up looking at how it is curved,not that it will matter that much and i'm always putting them flat myself.

I mean technically I could have it stood up beside my tele, although it'd mean my tele would be off center on the stand... I also have two cats that love running around and knocking things over, I'd rather not see it be pushed off either lol. Shame too since I know standing it upright would be the optimal situation. Oh well, I've had every other PlayStation flat and can't sat I've ever had problems other than my PS4 Pro going into overdrive during very unexpecting games... it was pretty whisper quiet while playing Horizon, yet playing Ni no Kuni 2 it sounded like a jet engine, lol.

Whether I get a discless version depends on the price as well as how they handle backwards compatibility.  Can I get a digital version of my disc-based PS4 games somehow?  Great, I'm 100% on board with discless.  No?  Then I'm not so sure.

I doubt you'll get that option. Play Asia just had a listing of 700$... ouch. Not for me if that's true, even if they eat 80 off the cost to manufacture it'd be 600 for the discless. I hope this listing is just a troll and not Sony instructing to leak to test the water. This thing needs to be 499 max, disced and 449 digital. It's suicide if they go higher than that and it'll cause a stunned launch like with the ps3. 

Only thing that gives me hope is that Microsoft essentially does it with all its backwards compatible games.  But you do need to insert the disc the first time. Still, there are other ways to register your game online if Sony wanted to allow it.

Also, there is no way in hell Sony will charge 700 or even 600 for a discless console.  I'd say best case scenario is 500 for disc based and 400 for discless.  More likely though is 500 and 450.  But if Sony wants to succeed, they will not charge 700. Play Asia has no inside info.

First bold:Yeah same here,especially the malecat faceplants into objects when he is lazy and miscalculates his jumps.

Sec bold: Yes my PS4 also made the sound of disappointment when i played that game :P (forever bitter about it)

”Surprisingly”, most PS fans like the look of the PS5 or are okay with it, while most Nintendo and X-Box fans crap on it.

People are allowed to have opinions that differ than yours without being accused of bias.  Enough of this already.

A simple observation which, unsurprisingly, you don’t like.

Fingers crossed.

Yep!  And really, if it comes down to 50 dollars to ensure I will get backwards compatibility, then I'm paying the 50 dollars.



Honestly when it was reveal, my thought was " it's weird ". But then a few hours later after that i said "it's OK" and next day i am realize it actually like " spaceship ", Alien building, and then suddenly it become clear they trying to aiming futuristic design and bold design.

It remind me a lot like Alienware product which i like it. Probably i will give 5 . Now it's growing on me.

Hey I was just joking =p

My bad!  It's hard to decipher joking/sarcasm in written text, and I took you too literally.

Don't mind, that happens to all of us. And since I'm a fierce PS defender I can understand it could be seem I was pissed =p

Now on a little more serious note I don't like the 5 star rating because it lose to much gradient (not on this voting because it is good to have fewer options, but on game review the 4 to 5 is to big of a difference when on metacritic 70 is average and 90 is greatest).

Don't you need to insert the disc every time you play the game to verify you still own it? What would be stopping people from passing the disc around to get free games? For a disc less console you would somehow need to send in the disc to switch to a digital license.

And yup, depending on how much Sony likes the digital margins, the could easily drop the disc less version down $100. New games are the same price on PSN as in stores, sometimes still even cheaper in stores. That's a lot of extra cash for first party games. (Dunno how it works with 3rd party but I guess Sony charges some money for hosting it on the psn store as well)
