    No web browser is a big bummer. I used it a lot on the PS4.

    Didn't know there was a law but that makes sense. I wish their store was global

    Thank God the era of region-locked video games is over...






    ...unless? (streaming and digital stores idling in the distance)

    Depends on brands and all. Budget options are still vastly cheaper in the long run - I've got my 1080p by Olto for $100 or so.

    Was it faster than Xbox one? Xbox’s web browser was so slow!

    No, sega wants us to completely forget that game exists because why improve on the past when you could act like it isn’t there

    Yes it is much better than Xbox Edge. Tho i suspect Edge might be seeing an overhaul soon since the Xbox Store got updated recently and is much better now. That and based on the icon it seems to be the old Edge browser, not the new Chromium based one.

    There is no law as such, but contractually there would be issues for sony if they made it region free bluray/dvd.

    It's unlikely the ps5 will be software hacked if there is no browser (current ps3 & ps4 exploits rely on browser) & tx may have put off any commercial hardware hacks.

    I hate to say this, being a loyal Nintendo fan and all, but this actually looks pretty good. PS5 may be their best console yet... if they don't do something stupid like cause the system to fail after warranty.

    I had a quick looksee at how Sony engineered the adaptive triggers, the one interesting and game-changing feature of the new controller. I like it - it looks very big-brained and robust. I see a servo and a pot to measure not just the trigger press resistance, but also the physical resistance. They kept it simple while making it highly repairable - the module can be opened and is easily replaceable. Very cool, thanks TronixFix.

    I’m just hoping I’ll get one in time for Christmas, ideally. But if I have to wait longer, then so be it, I’ll get one sooner or later.

    In my country since the fake pandemic, consoles went way up in price. Even a PS3 in good condition is expensive! I cannot even imagine how expensive the PS5 will be here!

    Thankfully, there is 0 games that I could be excited about this new gen. More excited about all the SNES games I haven't played.

    There is always at least one game, one must buy game that makes you get a console, this is just not happening for me this gen at all. On the PS4 it was the Last Guardian for me, wasn't so great in the end, but it made me get a PS4. What do we have now? Anybody knows of a game coming out that is a must buy?

    FFS, I can't believe all of these retailers still make it so easy for scalpers with bots to buy up their whole stock. Just do a captcha test after clicking "add to cart," this isn't that hard.

    Of course the chips will *eventually* fail, I'm simply saying that concern is rather distant. NAND chip replacement is a routine procedure right now, even on consoles like the Switch where people have modded the console's storage modules to contain more than the standard 32GB of storage. I think that any critical, console-specific data would be stored elsewhere simply to lock out a possible exploit window - you don't want keys and such to be in accessible space, even if encrypted. I suppose time will tell.
