Holy fuck there's a discless version!?! Heehee.
How the hell do you justify a digital addition when the Blu-ray drive only accounts for a small fraction of the cost of the entire console I don't get it. Are they going to have one that's $499 and another one that's $475? I think there's more to that all digital edition than they have revealed at this point. I wonder if it's not a lesser powered console just like Lockhart is rumored to be.

Might be one of the worst looking consoles ever. Or at least in modern times. No wonder they took forever to show it.

Best of show:
- HZD 2
- R&C
- Ghost Wire
- Deathloop
- Optional digital only system

The rest are totally forgettable.

I hat thing looks like it’s ready to push the fan to max speed as soon as I start a game.

So, on the plus side, the console looks nice (to my tastes) and Ratchet and Clank looked wonderful. There was a moment during the gameplay where I thought 'wow, this really does look like a generational leap'.

The rest of the show was painfully fucking average. We all lay into Nintendo and MS, but fuck me that was just as rubbish.

And thankfully this can put to bed the 'even PCs can't run PS5 games' bullshit.

It looked like exactly what your money would get you now. Something between a 2070 and a 2080, with some cute graphical features that the SSD must help with.

Disappointing, but only because I fell for the hype. Again.

I think the console design is pretty dope but would much prefer an all black version.

Overall, a pretty underwhelming event.

Didn’t look pretty but it’s not like people won’t buy it because it looks ugly.

although to go all white during these trying times. The nerve!!

Yeah, that was pretty disappointing for me overall.

Oh well, at least the console is out there and we have confirmation for Demon's Souls, GT7, RE8, and Horizon Zero Dawn sequel.

Just way too much indie filler/3rd party multiplat stuff.

Maybe shave $50 and get more profit from digital storefront.

5/10 R&C, Demon Souls and Horizon look great, but very underwhelming.. I was really excited to see SOCOM and Silent Hills, but welp so much for that dream.
