Do you guys think there will be any Black Friday deals (ex: extra controller or bonus game) with the PS5 given that it is only 2 weeks after launch?

Charge $130 for a bluray player? More like discouraging people to buy physical copy and resell them, so that they can sell more digital copies which cannot be re-sold

just saw the image of the new thing... can't understand why in this day and age why this is so big... can it just be like a Mac Mini or Nintendo Switch size? Guess not...

As someone who has owned an xbox one from day one... enjoy playing old games. What's the point of having all this processing power if backwards compatibility is your main selling point?

Thanks OP! I'm getting the disk version because I tend to sell single-player games after finishing it.

Completely skipped out on this last generation and got a whole bunch of PS4 games I've been meaning to play (Spiderman, LOU2, RDR2)

Would the discless version allow me to download them or am I missing out on buying used games off Kijiji?

Got Blu Ray one to run movies / games and resell them once it's done. Also play some of my PS4 games. I'll probably sell my PS4.

you still get xbox live gold, you get 2 free games per months xbox, plus discount on digital games, you will need to pay for that extra on the ps5.

Part of me wants to buy this "just because".

The other part of me is saying "You have a PS4 with 10+ games still in the wrapping including God of War, FFVII Remake, GTA V, LIttle Big Planet 2, Battlefield V, etc....and due to having two kids you can't find time to play".

Then, again YOLO!
