I may have posted this before but as someone who had to write streaming installers for open world games this harddrive tech is so amazing for me. It would have made something that took me months to do

Ugly as fuck. Deffo not gonna get one  Like seriously, anyone on here who thinks that LOOKS GOOD needs their eyes examined and their IQ tested.

Good, don't need to get the console then, just be patient for couple years :)

I think this is where the future of gaming is going, tbh.


If Xbox's plan is any indication of where it's all going, tbh everyone wins. If you already have a beefy PC you dumped $2000+ in, you're not left out anymore.

Pleasantly surprised by the pricing, was expecting to be slightly more expensive than the Xbox. I wonder if they had to re-adjust their strategy.
Digital Edition in particular doesn't look half bad at all, not that I will go and buy anything for christmas since I got a used PS4 last year, but the pricing makes it really enticing, the Xbox S was making me look at it just because with that price it demanded attention 😅

Anyway I wouldn't buy a next gen console until I also buy a 4K HDR TV, don't see the point otherwise. It will be a long while before this happens.

I know very little about console hardware, but this feels like a ton of plastic around an average amount of internals. They could have made it much smaller, right?

Yeah, I wonder if is an engineering need or if it marketing strategy.

I'm referring to cooling problems and the inevitable "slim" version they release through the cycle: can they not cool it so they make it bigger, then they find solutions, or they purposedly make them bigger so they have the excuse for a refresh to sell later?

But like I said since the announcement, if I was to get a PS5 before a slim version is released, I would definitely do it if I can find a way to make it smaller/source a modded version. This is not just big, but also really ugly.

I'm pretty sure heat is the main reason why they've made it so large. Air needs room to flow through that big heat sink.

PS4 Pro screams so loud that you need to crank up the volume or use headphones... That's what they try to avoid with this design.

If size is the answer to low noise, be it... sometimes the PS4-pro sounds like it's going to take off.
