They've been trying for a while now to extricate themselves from the TF narrative. Go figure, how all changes...
The thing that slightly irks me is the fact Microsoft (and DF!) have banged on about how transparent they are compared to Sony being so secretive (they had a point). Yet all those specs and no TF figure for XSS even though we here already know it.
The main reasons for the existence of the Digital Edition areNo my theory is that the blu-ray has only 825GB of SSD while the DE has double that.
Upscaling tech likely to be using up CUs/TF anyways though.. so far no indication of any separate hardware for that like the tensor cores on the nVidia side.If XSX is doing ~4K at 12TF, I can't see XSS doing 1440p very often at 4TF, I expect most games will be somewhere in between 1440p and 1080p. Saying that, upscaling tech could mitigate it.
It will be a great console to play gamepass games for a low price. People can have now a PS5 and spend less money in a XSS to use GP and play MS exclusives.Good news
I like xss design better than xsx.
Xsx looks boring but xss looks nice to me
I don't think 349 is logical . That would mean for 50$ more than xss u gonna getIm firmly in the the 399 camp for the PS5 Digital only (anything over that would be a very bad look). With that said a 349.99 and 449.99 Digital and regular PS5 i think would make the 299 pricepoint sort of irrelevant. Thatd be too good to be true though.
Unless Microsoft is not losing money and is actually making money.I don't think 349 is logical . That would mean for 50$ more than xss u gonna get
more powerful gpu by 250% ,
more ram by 60%
better io by 250%
That doesn't sound realistic
$599 in 2006 is almost $799 today, so $599 for PS5 in 2020 is not as overpriced.I'm shocked some guys here seriously considering PS5 to cost anything more than 499. Like really, you don't know history at all and what happened last time they released overpriced console? It will be 399 DE and 499 max for Standard edition.
I dont give a dime about "insiders", but DF actually had an in-depth article 6 months ago showing how a supossed hartlock at 1440p would be very competitive with a supposed ps5 at 4k, and outperform it when in lower than 1440p hartlock scenariosWe heard the opposite from others insiders and DF.
Pretty sure it comes down to what gamers think that super fast SSD costs. None of us know, but surely can't be cheap.I'm shocked some guys here seriously considering PS5 to cost anything more than 499. Like really, you don't know history at all and what happened last time they released overpriced console? It will be 399 DE and 499 max for Standard edition. It can't be more obvious.
