    The Hacking Scene on PS5 will start by reverse-engineering how to crack this obnoxious box open. 😛

    Pragmata looks pretty interesting even though it was just a trailer with no gameplay.

    I am so excited. Gran turismo, horizon zero dawn 2, and demon souls?????!?!?!?!?!

    Looks awesome, the day they release only a digital version and no disks, is the day I stop buying new consoles. Old school gamer and I like having my media on cartridges or disk. Even if the resale value was 1 cent. that’s still better than no resale value for digital games.

      Well I bought games to play and keep. Not for reselling and I only bought games I truly ike so even if I can resell my digital library for the same value as I bought, I won’t sell it because these are the games I love but not the trading material.

        Exactly that’s my problem with digital-only. You design a product to require a server as a middleman. In 20 or so years from release, your console might become a glorified paper weight if it hasn’t been hacked to allow backups as servers shut down, where with tangible media this isn’t bound to happen (unless there’s some kind of always-online DRM).

        “I only bought games I truly like”
        You telling me you’ve never bought a game and it turned out to be a ***? That’s not possible, especially for an old school gamer.

        Or do you buy digital then go physical for keepsakes?

      Your dammmm right

    Ummm “bye-bye" piracy? Can we “celebrate" it by getting latest CFW for PS4 so we dirty pirates can finally indulge in all that Sony has to offer for us on PS4!?

    It had a nice variety. Could have done without nba 2k21. Really missed having a Final Fantasy or Octopath Traveler/Bravely Default/Lost Odyssey style RPG.

    What an ugly console.

    • BlumCoLe

      Yepp, definitely ugly, same like the Xbox X Series NAS-Design …and the controller is something between XboX One & PS4 Controller wearing a tank top.

  8. StCarlTheSith

    Not worth getting the ps5 with how sony backstabbed its weeb fans by censoring anime games

  9. yoshi314

    considering the sizes ps5 games will come out at, at potential pricing of extra storage that can house them and provide required bandwidth, i am afraid the digital console may fail.

    unless there will be plenty of small sized games for it.

  10. enderzombie

    it looks like a router

    interesting, a bit ugly that wants to look very cyber-modern-something. I hope they will not require always-on network connection for singleplayer games as well. Also for old-school physical media lovers: if it can be cracked (and everything can be given enough interest) then you can collect your games on a 10tb usb drive for eternity…

  12. MDashK

    Simply not worth it… And I “speak” being one of those that literally has EVERY SINGLE console released TO DATE.

  13. padla

    THE PS5 HAS NO GAMES 😀
    Never buy diz shi*

    So…. Piracy is gonna be harder for them now. You’ll either be swapping games out or buying more external memory.

    I say “memory” Because that SSD is a 2 in 1. with the controller helping ofc.

  15. John

    It looks great but I like my console placed horizontally

  16. floxi

    Digital only with an SSD that has only 825 GB – I don’t think that’s a great idea.
