PlayStation 5

I think it looks pretty cool in the vertical orientation. I quite like having it glowing and peeking out from behind the TV.

The second SSD is worth it. I put one in awhile back. Been really happy with that, both increasing available space and having performance being identical.

It downloads games so fast that I haven’t really felt the need for more space myself. I have like 5-6 AAA games installed. I hate the design myself. The Xbox blends in wayyyyyy better.

Add me to the “it’s horizontal on my entertainment center” group. There’s like a random ottoman in front of it so I can’t even see it.

2nd SSD is a must for me. I got gaming ADD and need a nice selection ready to go. Plus my daughter likes different games so more space required. I already added a external 3 gb but more PS5 games or PS5 versions of games than I expected getting installed. Lastly, wifi is a little slow up on the 5th floor (split level house)so downloads not quite as fast as I like presently even at “gig” speeds. I’m honestly considering a 2 gb one because more future proof.

What’s the link to get in on that lottery? Is it easily findable via search?

Pretty sure it’s this one:

This has been in stock for the last 20 minutes.

It’s a bundle with Horizon New West, $549. Free express shipping.

Here’s a question: let’s say that I don’t need to worry about saved games or anything. Any reason to keep a PS4 if I have a PS5? Thinking about giving my old PS4 to a friend.

Not really, unless you got the digital only PS5 and want the PS4 for Blu-rays. Maybe for remote playing PS5 games on a second TV?

I gifted my PS4 Pro to my nieces/nephews. Since you can have both a primary PS4 and PS5 they have access to my entire digital library, too.

It’s a small one, but if you have multiple TVs in your house, you can remote play your PS5 to your PS4 in another room, I think.

There’s a small percentage of PS4 games that won’t play on a PS5, most of them are PSVR titles. Not really much more than a handful, but scrolling through my games list on the PS5 had a number of “not installable” titles. If you can live with that, go for it.

Cool. It looks like there’s only a handful of games that aren’t cross-compatible, and I don’t own any of them and none of 'em rang my bell either when I read the titles. One less thing to have to move. :)

I’ve not had a reason to plug my PS4 Pro in in the 16 months since I got my PS5.

The Sony official queue has been going up almost daily now, about this time every afternoon. And they’ve apparently been filling a decent number of people in line.

Good luck! I hope you score one.



Not super pumped about having to buy a bundle, but I guess Horizon Forbidden west isn’t a bad game so w/e


I was able to log in right now on my Sony account and buy that bundle without needing to wait. (I didn’t, but I was at the last step on payment; just wanted to see.)

Did you get disc or discless? They’re the same size, right, pretty much–is the storage space the same?

(Hmm, maybe my question is answered by the price shown. Still, that seems steep for the disc PS5 + one game. Maybe there’s an extra controller thrown in?)

Derp. I guess no free shipping.

I was successful in ordering! (Allegedly)
