    Yeah probably. I just was hoping for something to sell the system since nothing seemed interesting.
    Here's hoping for Metroid 4 and GOW 2021!

    TBF, I don't think Sony is dumb enough to lock BC away behind PS+, I'm 100% expecting this is just trying to be a competitor to Xbox Gamepass and not like..."Want BC? HAHA PS+ ONLY!"

    Definitely expect an "Update" statement within the next day or two where they'll clarify that.

    What's the price in Canada? Are US and Canada prices usually the same?

    A shame that they ruined the balancing in Demon's Souls, every tutorial enemy dies in one hit, the first boss as a much more predictable moveset and can even be blocked.
    The arena is also way too dark.
    The character can also fast roll, they probably took DS3 as inspiration, horrible idea to retrofit that approach.
    Flamelurker still has the generic design, but at least the game has nice particle effects, good job.
    And if Final Fantasy 16 arrives unfinished like the previous game it will be nothing out of the ordinary, the battle system doesn't look as sluggish, maybe it's even well done this time.

    Pretty good pricing on Sony's part. Surprised that the diskless version is a full $100 less but i guess anything less wouldn't sway many people to get an inferior version. I think the xbox will definitely sell more during the Christmas season than ps5 because of the S but lifetime sales may be different like the ps3.

    To be honest, if anyone was trying to get into gaming, I would recommend the PS5 first but then the Series S as a second if they want something cheaper. PC gaming might actually be a tough choice for the next couple years tbh

    Actually no.. Canada is more expensive.

    https://mobilesyrup.com/2020/09/16/playstation-5-price-launch-date-canada/

    Look:

    During its PlayStation 5 Showcase, the company confirmed that the standard disc drive-equipped console will cost $499 USD (about $650 CAD), while the all-digital model will be priced at $399 USD (roughly $525 CAD).

    I could potentially see them locking BC to the disc model only, and requiring PS+ on the digital edition to play PS4 titles, seems like a fairly Sony thing to do. "$100 extra now or pay it over the long term for the privilege of playing the games you've already bought."

    In any case, the prices are reasonable, and Sony doesn't have much reason to undercut Microsoft early on, given how the dynamic between the two has unfolded this gen.

    The U.K. PlayStation Store can be rather expensive, so while £359 is a good price, think of how much the games will be.

    You can always use other PS Stores, but would you actually want to have 4-5 different logins like some do to save money on digital games?

    PlayStation should become like Xbox and use one login for all.

    Yeah, and next thing will be a Pro Controller with analog triggers.

    4K Nintendo Switch... They haven't even reached 1080p.

    From the prices I expect this console gen to be very similar to the last in terms of buyers on each console. The only thing I can see changing things is the 25/35$ Xbox payment plan with the included Knuckles, though this depends on how informed consumers will be. I don't see many people want to buy that if they're giving it as a gift, though I have literally no clue if xboxes are usually targeted towards the gift-receiving demographic, rather than the buy-it-themselves adults.

    This will be the most interesting thing to watch come the releases this November. The exclusives situation between the consoles seems to be stuck at the same that it has almost always been.

    Not that it means much, because it's still expensive.

    I personally don't like to pay for digital games 'cause they always feel like rentals to me.

    Has GOW been delayed before?

    I guess for the people that just plan to hack the consoles as fast as possible, would just get the disc-less ones and maybe keep the disc one as their main console in the future.
    I mean, I could be wrong, but I feel like they did that because they didn't want to take up much time.
