It could go either side but I'm predicting
$499.

I'd actually be happier with it been more expensive if it reflects the specs.

I'm not going to be tight over a machine that has given me hours of entertainment every day for the last 7 years :D

That was the most expected month for that.
I think it is the better one too because it give time to 3rd-parties organize what to show at E3 without need to be keep secret.
No mosyly 3rd parties know about it much earlier. Maybe not exact date but. Preparing a trailer takes months mostly

Unless MS' console is weaker, in which case they might be better off not releasing the specs. Who releases specs or not can be telling.
Right now, MS is the one who is pushing the "power narrative". We don't know how Sony will work their PR.

Honestly this cat and mouse game is tiresome every year. I'm going to be buying both consoles, but I also realize that isn't the case for a majority of people. Even if the Xbox is weaker, I will be buying that console first on launch day with the PS5 at its first or second price cut (as I usually do).

I get why MS is focused on power, because they need every advantage this next gen to not be left in the dust...can you blame them? They got washed, rinsed, and dried, and then folded. They HAVE to be the most powerful console because right now they don't have "enough" proven first party studios making exclusives to bang with Sony on that battlefield. So hopefully Sony will just drop their specs so MS can drop theirs and we can argue over who has better games like we usually do.

I'll go as far as saying the PS5 will be officially revealed and will end the Xbox's life.
nah.. xbox doesnt even compete with PS5. PS5 is like a traditional, old-fashioned console. xbox is competing with the new way of gaming.
I'm genuinely hyped for this event more than anything, even my birthday on the very same month!
haha so much hype for this crap: https://www.neogaf.com/threads/sony-site-confirms-experience-playstation-event-in-jan-14-to-feb-16.1520046/#post-256536747

We don't know absolutely anything conrete about it - will it be full BC or just first party games will be supported, how it'll work, do we have to download anything from PSN or the games will work of of PS4 discs and only updates needs to be downloaded (if there is any) and full game if you so choose.
I don’t have a PS4 so I don’t care about backwards compatibility at all. I just know it’s the new PlayStation and that’s enough for me!

None of us know anything. This is crazy if no info gets leaked between today and the first week of Feb.

If they didn't manage to end Xbox's life during the last few years, for sure they won't be able to in the future now that Xbox is in its strongest position it has ever been in. It rather looks like Sony will become dependent on Microsoft though, if they base their future streaming solution on Azure.



In your dreams.
SONY dependent on Microsoft?

Alright... so that was essentially a troll reply.

You've given your post a ton of thought? The key to SONY's consoles are getting through generations with AAA production, Microsoft can go months without putting out a Halo, Forza or Gears. It's the console war theory.

So reveal in Feb and full show case probably August. October launch would be sweet.

I think if they were going to do it in Feb they would have mentioned it today when they announced they wouldn’t be at E3. I‘d say that Feb dream is almost all but dead.

You wish. They're gonna destroy their competitions and beat the living shit out of them during the Mark Cerny Reveal event :messenger_smiling_horns: :messenger_bicep: :messenger_rocket:
I did say almost, but you’d really think that if they were having a Feb event they would have used it today to soften the blow.

Like “We won’t be at E3, but stay tuned, next month we will have some very exciting stuff to show you” or something similar.

Instead of the vague 100s of events coming up for you to look forward to. 😉

Sony's giving everyone the silent treatment and everyone's acting like the obsessive girlfriend that can't handle it :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Sony's marketing team is on another level.

I hope so. Most usually don't find silence to be particularly inspiring or reassuring.

Normally I would agree but the silence is accompanied by a slew of positive rumors on top of the exciting information we already know from the wired article. They've smartly handled distribution of information so far and built up a great deal of anticipation for this upcoming reveal.

Microsoft is also doing a great job of capitalizing on the silence by being vocal during all these events. It almost seems like a win win situation between the two with one side building anticipation and another hogging the spotlight lol.
