Considering today is the 25th Birthday of PlayStation, I reckon its time we launch a PS thread to discuss all things PlayStation and gaming. in terms of ground rules, make sure you dont discriminate (although banter about xbox and master race is allowed :lol: )

anyone want to hazard a guess how much the PS5 will cost. microsoft has announced that the series X will be £449 (or £28.99 a month with xbox all access membership) and the series S will be £249 (or £20.99 a month with all access). Both xboxes are due to be released 10th november with pre-orders going live on 22nd september.

With this in mind, how much are you willing to spend on a PS5 and how much do you reckon the PS5s will cost?

Now that MSoft have pulled the trigger, I'd wager them matching the $499/£449 for the main unit and go $/£50 cheaper on the digital edition. With that said, with the Series X being so cheap I wouldn't be surprised to go aggressive on the diskless model.

thing is with the series S, it is capped at 1440p (2k), whereas the X is 4k. both ps5 models are 4k, so i reckon the the discless would be more than the s but not more than the X.

Oh yeah there's no way in hell they can go as cheap as the Series S (I covered everything on that in another thread) even with the loss-leader model consoles have historically adopted, but they could try and push the price into the £350 range.

noticed odd numbered ps' tend to be in the £400+ range when new whereas 2 was ~£300 and ps4 was £349 iirc. i would expect the diskless version to be no more than £425, although if they were aggressive, it would be £350 and disk version slightly less than series x (say £400-£425).

shame sony isnt announcing ps5 related stuff today as its playstations 25th anniversary today

I wouldn't read too far into pricing history with a sample size of five and about 6 years between each release. It's not like phones, processors etc with a regular "tick-tock" release cycle, they're going to evaluate each release based on the market at the time.

amazon japan has listed all the official accessories for the ps5 will be out in japan on November 20th. Does that indicate a November 20th release date globally I wonder?

Asian markets have historically had a different release date (although Msoft are doing a same day launch worldwide this year), so assuming that's the correct launch date in Japan and not just a placeholder, it could potentially be up to a week either side of that date. I can't imagine it would be later though.

I preferred spyro to crash (although cortex was best badguy ps1 gen). Mgs1 and gran turismo were other ps1 greats as well

As you maybe know I did not own a PS console, just played the games when I was invited by a good friend of mine. And as he was a great ego shooter fan, I have almost played games connected to this genre. :rolleyes:

Should I buy a PS4 just to play a Crash game? that is it not worth.

So is Gran Turismo a good racing game to invest the money?
