I'll probably get the Digital Edition which doesn't have a disc drive. If they can get Spiderman MM out together with the launch it'll be a system seller.

The PS5 looks beautiful to me, but the look of the console doesn't really concern me since the box is hidden from my view.


I am leaning towards the Digital edition too, while my interest in the xbox series X is growing (both for the more powerful processor and the optical drive for my OG xbox, xbox360 titles). I also like the xbox game pass (suaku, have not been following xbox game eco-system for years).

Probably the best part about the XBox Game Pass is that you can get the PC version (or Ultimate if u have both platforms).

The SSD is custom, each piece of storage memory is soldered onto the PCB, and is powered by a custom controller. Based on the stats of 5.5GB/s, it's super high end PCIE4.0 NVME, that will cost hundreds of dollars if you bought a normal PCIE4.0 NVME at 825GB. Super high end NVME now that does 5GB/s and at 1TB costs US$200+ eg Sabrent Rocket 1TB. There is a slot for a 3rd party NVME to be installed, but this custom NVME cannot be removed so if spoilt the console is dead, that particular PCB platter needs to be replaced, and IIRC that pcb platter is the same one as the CPU and GPU and 16GB GDDR6 RAM.

The thing that impressed me the most was the stand and all the design thinking that went into the whole thing from the screw compartment to the hook.

There's alot of space left on the PCB but I suspect there is a heat issue so a larger footprint, that massive fan and heatsink, and the liquid metal, are all necessary to maintain a cooler console.

I almost squeezed the trigger yesterday to preorder a XSX while wife was shopping. I done the measurements, it fits nicely lying on its side and with some leeway for the green vent to vent its hot air. in my tv console. However, wife came back just in time to slap me back to my senses. LOL

I like the dust trap for the PS5, but in reality, I am not going to open up the flaps and suck the dust out, haha.

That is what bothers me the most. Constant deleting of games because 825gb only, makes me wonder how long can the nvme last? If system os can install on expansion slot then it is fine.

825GB is enough for me though, across the lifespan of all my console drives be it 512GB or 1TB, I've never been able to fill up 512GB.

Considering that the onboard NVME is 5.5GB/s PCIE4 and the expansion slot is also PCIE4, it shouldn't be a major issue to expand buying a 3rd party NVME and imho entry level 1.5-2GB/s PCIE3 NVME is already damn fast or even too fast, and they are very affordable today. I paid the same for a Crucial P1 1TB NVME as a Seagate Firecuda 1TB SSHD several years ago for my PS4 Pro.

Sony will certify whatever ssd that's compatible. Compatible meaning can meet performance standard for running ps5 games.

Yeah hopefully the os can run from expandable ssd and not the whole console die just cause of the onboard ssd being dead.

PS5 will likely have the "restore partition" thing as a small piece of NVRAM, same as the previous PS consoles.

Did they talk about the region lock thing if upgrade a game from ps4 to ps5? If R2 disc, digital upgrade only from uk psn store? I'm thinking of getting Control ultimate edition R2 and it is cheaper by 12sgd.

Dun think region control has been touched on, but I suspect region control will be retained.
