I've started saving money last year, but €499 (which is ~ 42K RUB - including all taxes) is just way too high for a gaming console imho. I think I can manage to save ~42K RUB over the year to buy PS5 at launch but I hope they'll go for €399-449 instead.
Everything up to 499,00 is a no brainer. A device you use for 6-7 years and countless hours of entertainment. Bought the Xbox One day one and I used it till 2019. Upgraded to an X last year. In a time where you pay more than double for a smart phone, if you buy an apple or so, the price of the hardware is cheap.
Definitely, together with a LG CX this year. Not sure which console yet, will be decided based on their presentations and launch games. I find it weird that you would already know which console you want to buy if you don't know anything about any of them.
Absolutely not. Why would i pay full price to play the handful of games that will be available at launch? I'm going to wait for the inevitable redesign. By then, there should be enough exclusives to justify getting one and most of the launch titles will be cheaper
Day 1? Not a chance. I wanna know what problems and issues the console may have before I buy it. Had I known about the Pro being the living-room equivalent of a booster rocket I would never have bought it. Piece of shit hardware! Good games, though. Unfortunately.
Since im still refusing to upgrade my private PC rig I will probably buy both consoles at launch. You will get a decent performance for a decent price. You cant say this atm if you look at PC hardware. A rtx 2080super costs 700 € here. If any of those leaks we got have some truth in it getting a 10TF console for 499€ is just a steal.
My Xbox One and PS4 are for playing a few select exclusives and I really don't touch them much, I'm just more of a PC gamer as it fits my lifestyle much more and I like having my entire backlog in one place no matter how many generations pass by. The Xbox One S was my first purchase last gen as I wanted an 4K Bluray player and it was cheaper than any on the market. I got the PS4 Slim two years ago on black friday and replaced it with a pro this year on black friday (I don't DO black friday but I do browse amazon and got lucky both times). I'll give this gen a year or two for revisions to hit and prices to drop a bit and then I'll decide which to get based on what games I want to play. I'm leaning Xbox just because I'm digging the gamepass and I adore Forza but when it comes to single player action adventures which I tend to prefer Sony usually has the best so who knows.
It mostly takes 1 year to get a price reduction. Let's say they launch at $499, maybe on Black Friday 2021 they will be $399, or $449 with an extra controller and game. I definitely get $100 worth of gaming time out of the console in 1 year.
Why all these questions every week?
Everyone know that game forum posters would pay, but that doesn't mean there is enough to sustain a game platform. If it was true then Neo Geo would still be in business. It was one of the best hardware available of its day, and with literal arcade quality. But Neo Geo console died for a reason.
Yeah, it's crazy to think how much people are willing to pay for a phone (12 million iPhone 11 sold in like a month), yet a game console, that's supposed to last way more is a no go for more than $399. But it makes sense when you realize that out of 100 million PS4s Bloodborne has 3 million sales. I wonder if most people even use it outside of Netflix.
Obviously someone who plays videogames daily and has a decent income won't see a problem in paying $499 or $599, but it would be harder for a kid to convince his parents to get it for that price, or for someone who barely plays games to be willing to pay that much. I have a cousin who got an Xbone because it was cheaper and only played a couple of AC games and RDR2, you can't convince someone like him to spend $599.
