Forums - Sony Discussion - Why you should buy PS5 on launch date explained.

Hmm, I still not seeing any reason to buy one



Around the Network

Why are none of your points arguments to buy the console at launch? One of them is even an argument to get it later.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

The amount of cringe in the OP actually makes me want to get an XSX instead.

I wont buy one at launch because I'm actually working on my backlog PS4 games, like legit and it feels great lol, And also probably by the time I finish my backlog I'm sure the PS5 slim would come out and I wouldn't mind waiting for that. (plus im sure the slim will also look good in my living room too lol)

Currently playing Megadimension Neptunia V II. Love it, but it's gonna be my whole summer. Games like this really hammer home that I will never finish my backlog.

@OP. It IS a lovely looking console.

A PS5 will look good right next to my XSX.



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

The main reason is because it's a playstation. You can't go wrong with a playstation no matter the number.

PS: Unless it's like $700



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

Well I`m also planning to buy on the first opportunity.
It is funny to see so many people complaining that the dual shock never changes, and when it changes and with that you can`t use the older one on the new system it become an issue (even if for all the previous generation that wasn`t ever a problem).

I was definitely not one of these people :D I stated here that I find the original DualShock form-factor more comfortable than the DualShock 4's (I can't speak to how the DualSense will rest in my hands, but it looks like the answer is 'less well').

On topic: I'll pass on the launch PS5, but I'm glad that you're this excited about it. As for me:

1) If I get a PS5, regardless of the when, this number can only stay the same or grow larger. Games won't disappear after the launch window (physical copies will probably be harder to track down). Besides, if they're good enough, there will likely be a GOTY, Complete Edition, or Remaster at some point anyway. In the interim, my backlog knows no shortage.

2) Also not applicable for me.

3) The price (whatever it ends up being) will (most likely) only go down with time. Moreover, I have no doubt that Sony will release a PS5 Pro at some point. If I get anything, it will likely be this (unless I have reason to believe Sony will release a PS5 Pro Ultimate!).

4) The above reply to DonFerrari addresses point 4 for me in terms of any desire to move on from the original DualShock

5) As a hardware enthusiast, I'm always a fan of software being specifically optimized to push singular, customized tech. It seems to me that 3rd party games tend to shy away from doing this, however. If you have a link you could post of which 3rd parties have made this commitment, I'd love to check it out.

I was very fine with original DS as well, but DS4 made me even happier, when I pick up an older DS it feel a little strange. But yes I didn`t need changes on it, waiting to see how dual sense will feel out, I guess it will be an improvement.

Nah i need to buy a third Switch just to have it

Why would you buy a Switch, when you can get a brand new PS5 and finally enjoy third party support without being salty about 5 gens of Nintendo 3rd party drought.

For the same reason someone might buy a PS5, and then be salty that Nintendo is not a multiplat 3rd party company.
