PS5 Official Hardware Details


Recommended Posts

I'll be getting the disc version assuming the backwards compatibility applies to PS4 discs, most of my games are physical copies. I haven't watched the showcase yet but God of War: Ragnarok, AC: Valhalla, Far Cry 6, Cyberpunk 2077, Horizon Forbidden West and Hogwarts Legacy I am beyond excited 😄

Anyone else seen the tech demo for Unreal Engine 5 running on a PS5?  It looks incredible.  

That's the funny thing about specs, they don't always perform as great as they sound. We have zero gameplay to watch right now so it's all just hype. Either way you slice it, on paper they are bo

Pre orders were a huge mess last night. They weren’t supposed to start until today but GameStop started early and once others found out the greed machine took over and everyone joined. Most didn’t even have their websites updated to even take the orders so they rushed it. Chaos ensued and lots of websites crashed. At one point the GameStop site activated its DDOS protection, lol.

Has R* already explained how GTA Online will work once PS5 is out?

I'm assuming that until they release a PS5 specific super duper enhanced & expanded version, we'll all still be in theory on the same platform? Those on PS5 just using the backwards compatability but still playing a PS4 version of the game?

If so, I'm in no rush. When are they supposed to release the new expanded GTA Online for PS5?

2nd half of 2012, but this is R*, delays are possible.

Not sure if we can play PS4 GTA on PS5, f*cking hope so!

You should be able too, unless you own the disc version of the game and buy a digital console.  Then you’ll need to rebuy it.  If you have GTA digitally you should be able to download it from the store.

Still waiting for the official prices here but looks good so far. Pleasantly surprised. 

Gonna go with the digital version since technology has made me so lazy that switching discs is too much of a hassle anyway.

It's actually not a bad bunch of launch titles but other than Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is not even a full game, there's not really much tempting me. So I'll most likely wait for Sony to fix the usually issues or God of War: Ragnarok. Whichever comes first.

At 9PM ET, WALMART put more systems online and they sold out in less than a minute.

The new NVIDIA card released today and sold out in minutes as well.

It's very hard to out buy a bot. The cards are popping up all over eBay for insane markups.

Until something comes along that I particularly want to play I'll be holding back.

After a number of years of being a hold out on discs I have changed opinion slightly with having the the PS4 and it feels like a chore to have to switch a disc, which is odd considering when I first started gaming I had to sit and wait up to 30 minutes for something to load from tape!

But the main thing that pisses me off with the digital is that the prices on PS Store are always more than the disc version. 

As quite a lot of games are basically just a database update, I'm looking at you Mr EA Sports Franchise, or very minimally changed from game to game I like the option of being able to pick up a second hand or discounted copy of something when it's a few years old.

I really like the Assassin's Creed games for instance, I know they are essentially the same game in a new world but I find them quite relaxing sometimes to just wander around collecting things in and to switch off. But they definitely aren't worth £65 as a new release for digital. Currently running about 3 games behind on them and just pick them up for £10 to £15 when they come out.

With a $10k - 70k profit margin, well depending on the price you set or the bidding minimum, I'd have the bots working too if I were in the States. Thats a potential life changer for little work. AMD Rizen3 is next month so it will be the same and on a yearly basis opt in.

Didn't know digital was more expensive than disc. I thought it was the other way around. Definitely getting the disc version then, even if digital is prettier without that big bulge for the disc reader.

Yeah they were lame for not securing the launch from Order Bots. I hate that people do that. I mean, what if we worked hard all summer so we could buy a PS5 and on launch day they are all bought and we can get one but now have to pay $1,500 for it. I really hate the people on this planet.

I wonder if they will do an optional external disc add on in the future for those who want to use discs but originally went for the digital version. I can definitely see Xbox doing this.

@Con Yeah! They want you to fight it out on Any Given Black Friday, they won't fix money being thrown at them tbh.

I believe they will through the usb type c or usb 3.0 port. 

Expecting a cheap streaming device with or with out a controller for Xbox Xcloud specific gaming to grow their subscription base.
