I only buy slim Playstations.

I might hold out long enough for the PS5 Slim. But who knows. I just know I'm not getting a PS5 at the end of this year. It'll be a shock if I get one in 2021. It's looking like 2022-2023.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

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.

because Nintendo is like a deity and their consoles are like prophets need to be worshipped

Doesn't matter how long it takes. Waiting for a slim has multiple advantages. The console isn't bulky and huge. It might even be more power and/or heat efficient. Possible technical issues that may arise within the first few years will be ironed out. The library will have bigger selection. A lot of games will be cheaper. There might even be bundles.



The PS5 is so large it will fit on my livingroom? Crazy. This certainly will be the most revolutionary system ever created. You will literally be in the game when you play. Can't wait. Believe!

Due to backlash against the PS5's aesthetics, Sony redesigned the system entirely. I actually have an exclusive photo that I smuggled out of Sony HQ...

Spoiler!

That is Next Gen defined!  Poor mom doesn't have any more room for her couch and has to read standing up.  She doesn't seem very happy about it either. This is exactly what a game system should provide for the family.

As we all know, long-awaited Play Station 5 is launching this holiday season. Rumoured date is 20th of November and price is 399/499 based on leaks. In this thread, i argue why you should buy PS5 on launch date:

1. The game library will have at least 30 games upon launch, including exclusives

2. The design is the best made for a videogame console and it will look amazing on your living room

3. The price is reasonable and the fast memory will have greater results than the competition

4. The new controller, replacing the long standing black Dual Shock controller and introducing the futuristic dual sense with adaptive controls

5. 3rd Party commitment to make Play Station 5 their main point of development interest.

No. Stop making PS5 topics FFS

Look, consumers have asked for new ways to interface with a console, new forms of activities. This redesign has not only made all of the connections more manual, but it also encourages more physical activity. What you see on display here is Sony's answer to Ring Fit: "Read Standing"!

1. I think the current version looks ugly, especially thanks to the white. I will most likely either wait on an all black model of fat PS5 or a PS5 Slim or PS5 Pro.

2. Only launch exclusive that interests me is Kena, and I can play it on my PS4 Pro.

3. Pricing is not confirmed yet, and the site that leaked the pricing had very questionable pricing listed for the accessories ($50 for extra controllers, even though the MSRP on PS4 controllers is $65 and the PS5 controller has more expensive tech than PS4 controllers, $50 for a 3D audio headset even though the official PS4 headset is $90 and doesn't have 3D audio, etc.)

4. While I do like the new controller features, I think it's super lame that they won't let people use the PS4 controllers

I will almost certainly get Series X first. More launch window and first year exclusives that interest me so far. I love Gamepass from a value perspective. I like that MS is letting us keep using our old controllers so that I don't need to buy a second controller for boosting co-op achievements and such. I think XSX looks better than PS5.

It will ultimately depend on if Gamestop is open and giving a good trade in value for the PS4 pro. Right now I'm leaning on waiting until next year when a few more games get released, but I may change my mind on a whim as we get closer to the launch.
