    Disk version for me.

    UHD 4K drive, plus far cheaper in the long run.

    Physical disk games are cheaper, and you can sell/trade them too

    I'm done with disc games as much as I love physical media...it's time now, that and i'm done with "insert disk" then "downloading 95gb update file" just...nah, done. CD keys are always cheaper than disks, with internet getting faster, 4k streaming getting better and higher quality, access getting faster and easy even for global releases absolutely digital version for me. The whole trade/sell thing is moot as well because with account sharing and access anyone can play anything anywhere, especially with regards to how powerful streaming is going to get, Xcloud is incredible even on 4G speeds, hoping Sony consider something similar soon. Just my two cents but wow £349 for 4k/8k content at silly frame rates with bundles of horsepower...fantastic. What a world we live in.

    Digital one for me. Thats a great price point and I intend to keep my Xbox One X so I'm good for 4k UHD.

    @AudiMan2011 just to mention one of the UK prices is wrong in your article - it should say £359, not £349 :tup:

    And after all the guessing about prices beforehand, the leaks were basically spot on (other than the rather odd £10 difference) and the price difference is also the bigger amount of $100/€100 (but £90 not £100 harumph)

    Apparently the AUX port used for the VR camera is gone—I saw one USB-C, three USB-A, a LAN and an HDMI port.

    £360? I could trade my PS4 in for it.

    Good news! I was wrong! :lol:

    $400 is a steal, gotta be a loss leader for sure, right?

    At £360 you’d be crazy not to. It’s a ridiculously good price considering what you get

    So does this mean GT7 late 2021/2022? Unless I missed it, I didn't even see a shot of the game in the montage.

    This is likely what I'll end up doing, I just got a 4k TV so the timing couldn't be better. Then I'll get a Series X on All Access to give me a 4K disc drive and Game Pass Ultimate which I can also use on my PC. It's a great time for gaming!

    $557 Australia dollars for the Digital version is not bad.

    Soo tempted but I'll wait for a GT7 bundle.

    Won't be able to borrow / trade any games or play my physical PS4 ones.

    What happened to announcing a black console, like they teased for today’s online event?

    $700-ish for the disc model for folks who have over priced internet from a mobile device and $100 a game. Shouldn't be a problem when I get my cult up and running.

    So my local gamestops have already sold out of pre-orders within 1 hour.
    Best buy has an option but will have to move fast to get it.

    Talk about not even getting any notice it just opened up.

    PLAYSTATION BABY!!!!!

    I think for what you get the price is a steal. If you make a PC with PS5 specs it’s probably double the price. 825GB SSD is a bit of a shame as most game are going to be 150 GB plus. Getting those SSD memories are gonna be expensive I think. The price for the headset and DS5 I think are a good price. I’m very excited!

    No mention of GT7 nor any subsequent trailer from the event. Should place my hope on TGS next week

    Definitely disc version, but I'll wait till GT7 comes out. My PS4 Pro is still working.
    Yet another problem (only for me) is that I have no idea if the mainland China version will support accounts of other locations (i.e. HK, JP, DE, etc.), neither do I know when it will come out, as we're not part of "rest of the world", if you read the release date very carefully.

    Got mine. Went for disc version since it was the only one remaining at The Source in our area otherwise it'd have been Digital. 625$ here in Canada for disc version.

    I’ll be getting the Physical disk version. Might even wait for a GT7 bundle too.

    I hope so! I got my PS5 pre-ordered so that'd be neat!

    I like your avatar! Good old memories.

    They announced before that VR owners can get a free adapter for the camera. No details on how that's gonna work yet.
