    I think the financial collapse statement is the only one which genuinely applies here. They were recently quoted stating the system won't be cheap, but will be "good value". They don't want to have to address this now, so looks as though they are taking some time out, to prepare a better strategy.

    They likely don't want to be forced to commit to any pricing or models until they are closer to launch, as the market can swing in a very different direction before then. If they confirm the system is $449 and $499 - $599, then a re forced to discount, they will view this as damaging to their brand. I expect closer to launch they will have an event (I know I'm not physic, and this is obvious haha) and will contain pricing gauged on markets and what people are prepared to pay.

    I hope it doesn't go the way of the PS3, where they had such an expensive console, they had to bundle games, but Sony being Sony, it actually cost more - "buh is g00d va1u3".

    Problem is only that PCI 4.0 SSDs with at least 5000 MB/s are required. Such a SSD with 2TB (which should be standard in the year 2021 for consoles) currently costs around 500€. Almost the price of the console itself^^

    it'll be interesting to see what's up with the nvme. We are talking about 4k assets for games that were around 50-100GB at 1080p. I wonder how they'll manage it. Or if they won't, how much it's going to cost for that much space.

    Glad they're putting it off. You shouldn't want to compete with a renewed civil rights movement.

    I have a ps4 pro at 5.05 and i'm still waiting for something more interesting to happen.

    It does seem exclusive to empathyzing towards people residing above the Tropic of Cancer though, excluding Australia and vicinities.
    The same level of commotion never applies to whatever happens on poorer countries.

    Did they even give a reason for the delay? Especially since they didn't give an amended date?

    This is definitely going to anger people...

    I see that amateur sleuths are on the case. Don't worry, *actual* law enforcement is already on it, they don't need your help. I'd appreciate it if you guys didn't badmouth the dead, the body's not even cold yet. You can discuss the cancellation of the event to your heart's content, but leave both the racism and the anarchism at the door. Rioting is wrong, police brutality is also wrong - it's almost as if violence is not the answer.

    In any case, I'll be combing through the thread plucking out any off-topic nonsense - if any of you aren't mature enough to discuss the subject in a respectful manner, perhaps you should step away from the keyboard for a while instead.

    M.2 and NVMe drives really are amazing. I remember being astonished at just how big of a difference swapping to a 2.5" SATA SSD made in everyday productivity, and now modern drives with built-in caching are leaps and bounds ahead. I'm glad that Sony went with this form factor for storage expansion, even though I do see the benefits of Microsoft's custom solution in the XB Series X. This is definitely more user-friendly, just as it was the case with the easily swappable drives on previous PlayStations.

    too bad m.2 drives are still crazy expansive a lot of people won't be able to take advantage of that extra storage option

    They're really not. You can get cheap off-brands online for prices competitive with their hard drive equivalents. They're made with the same components and often offer comparable performance with the budget options from big name brands. All you have to do is look up some reviews and benchmarks. Make sure that the drive isn't cobbled together with garbage parts and you have yourself a deal - you'd be surprised by what you can find on AliExpress these days. Just the other day I read a review of a Chinese SSD which was, in effect, a Crucial drive with a different sticker - same FLASH, same controller, different name.

    I get the modding for talking about insensitive subjects -- I don't understand not letting us talk about the politicization. Sony's decided put itself squarely in the political arena. And it's very interesting to see how a Japanese company which would battle for professionalism over political pandering just got its head caved in by politics.

    I make a big deal about this because it flies in the face of the chief architect who is very serious about gaming as an artform.

    Art and Politics have long been intertwined. They're sure as shit not mutually exclusive. I think you just don't agree with these particular politics based on your shitty jokes about KFC and asserting that protesters are all "looters" and "thugs".

    Want to release a game on our platform that's a little bit edgy? You'd better think again.
