PS5 Showcase: Prices/Dates Revealed + God of War 2 Teaser

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Sony just revealed the prices and dates for the digital and Disk versions for the PS5. The console will first launch in the U.S, Japan, Canada Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea on the 12th of November. The rest of the world will be able to obtain the PS5 on the 19th of November

My thoughts

I am actually a bit surprised by the pricing. The SSD performance coupled with Zen 2RDNA 2 and Sony's PS5 software should make for a very compelling piece of hardware, at least when compared against the XBOX Series X at the revealed price points. What do you guys think?

The digital edition is definitely a nice price, for the same system. I'll be honest, I never bought anything but digital on the One X, and don't see myself doing so ever again anyways.

I'm surprised the digital PS5 is $399, it will probably sell really well, just not this holiday season when most people will probably go for the Series S (and ultimately be disappointed they got a last gen console in a cute box /s).

 

Demon's Souls looked so good and, of course, #GoWHype.

100€ for the ps5 with disc reader? seems a bit too much, in the store where I live the prices are too damn high, full price almost always while on a physical store the same game can get down to -20% even at launch

Makes sense from their point of view. They want to lock people into their digital store and $450 would be be too tempting for a lot of people.

This showcase was a big let down. I was excited going into it, but coming out I feel let down about everything I was excited for.

 

Definitely not going to be picking up a console this time.


Just remember: Random people on the internet ALWAYS know more than professionals, when someone's lying, AND can predict the future.

Wait if FromSoftware is considered to be a first party sony studio now does that mean pc is not getting any more games from FromSoftware Inc unless sony decides to port them to pc? I really hate sony making exclusive as i'm part of the Souls cult so it pains me to not be able to play bloodborne on the ps4 and now demon souls on the ps5 because exclusives.

This is going to hurt businesses like Gamestop even more now that discless consoles will be mainstream. Even fewer people will be buying physical games now.

I preordered the full spec version, i'll always go for having my own hardware and discs, Sony has said that they're making a lot more of the full version than they are of the digital version so i think we're a long way from being forced into an all digital future.

FromSoftware aren't owned by Sony. If they made an exclusive or timed-exclusive deal with Sony for Demon's Souls, it could have been for that particular game and not their entire future catalogue.

 

Sony says they're planning to bring more first-party titles to PC, too.

It appears that Demon's Souls is releasing on PC. See this message at the end of this trailer.

Searching it up says that Sony said it was "human error" but there is always a chance

Great to see a $100 difference between the disc and disc-less consoles.

 

I hope game sizes are reduced due to the storage technologies in these new consoles, otherwise the 1TB drive is going to fill up real quick. Gonna suck big time on the disc-less, maybe less so on the disc version...

 

Personally I'm not buying either console this year. There's zero games I want to play except Demon Souls, but the announcement/denial above about a PC release just says to me that they plan on releasing it in the future.

400 dollars for a full performance PS5 (unlike the Xbox Series S) seems really good.

 

 

Xbox Series S to PS5 (digital) is a 33.3% increase in price but over 150% increase in performance.

PS5 (digital) to Xbox Series X is a 25% increase in price but at best an 18% increase in performance (in compute on the GPU cores, the PS5 has much faster storage and much faster GPU memory so the difference is even less).

 

 

Seems like both consoles will actually be really, REALLY good not just in price:performance but also in just raw performance. Will probably be a pain in the ass for developers to have to implement what are essentially PC-like graphics settings.

 

Now the question becomes, will the Xbox or PS5 win this console generation? I think the PS5 seems like the best buy, but the Xbox will probably be very appealing with its payment plan as well as the Series S. Developers will be forced to optimize their games for the lower-specced Series S anyway, and when a parent sees a 200 dollar price difference for a console that plays the same games they won't go "but this will have better image quality and frame times". They will see a way to save 200 bucks while still making their kids happy to have the newest console on the market.

 

 

I wonder how discs will be handled this generation. Used games is such a wonderful way of getting games for dirt cheap and it feels like both Sony and Microsoft want to kill that in favor of "games as a service", which I hate with a passion.

Hard to say since the consoles aren't out, but most likely waaaay more.

CPU - Somewhere between an AMD 3600 and 3700X (so something like 230 dollars)

Motherboard - Like 80 dollars

RAM - Maybe 70 dollars?

Storage - It has a really fast and quite large SSD, so maybe like 150-200 dollars

Case - Some cheap one for 50 dollars.

PSU - Again, some cheap one for like 50 dollars.

 

Even without the GPU, which is probably the most expensive part, we are at around 650 dollars. If we assume that the GPU will be around the same as a 300 dollar GPU (RTX 3060 or whatever AMD releases) then we are close to 1000 dollars for roughly (very roughly) the same performance as the 400 dollar PS5.

It is insanely good value for money.

More than $499. Not that that's a surprise - it's always been this way at the launch of a new console generation.

It'll be at least a couple years before you can get something comparable for the same price.
