PlayStation 5 Showcase (full event): https://www.youtube.com/embed/tjji8NEW9lo (open in new tab/window, embed doesn't work with JS popup)

...and the only segment that matters to 99.99% of you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdCqTIujeoc

November 12th, $499/$399, as expected.

Oh and (God of War) Ragnarök in 2021 (I assume that means Christmas).

Edit: um, Sony took down their DS trailer for some reason, replaced with GameSpot version

Edit 2: The “also available on PC” fine print is apparently “a mistake” so Sony took down their version. A “mistake” as in it does run on the PC but it’ll be a PS5 exclusive until Sony says otherwise.

825GB SSD on that thing seems a bit light. There's a few PS4 games over the 100GB mark, with most around 60GB.

I can't believe I'm actually thinking of waiting until next year.

There’s an empty internal slot for an NVMe drive.

Chances are good that I won't bite the bullet on the PS5 until next year no matter what because I won't want to drop that much money at once when there aren't a lot of games out and because it'll be next to impossible to get if past releases are any indication. They had supply issues with the PS3 and PS4 the Christmas those got released and we weren't in the middle of a pandemic then. When Demon's Souls get released and/or a Persona/SMT game comes out, then it will be time.

Wut.

And here I was thinking that I didn't need to jump on a PS5 in the early days.  I still probably won't, but this makes it much harder.

will probably do what I always do:  Wait for the first Hardware Revision, then snap one up on a bundle deal somewhere.

Sony advertised the preorders as starting at retailers on the 17th, then Best Buy, Walmart, and Target all did their preorders on the 16th instead. Amazon at least waited until midnight on the east coast I think. Best Buy's site was fucked essentially offering Schrodinger's pre-order, neither purchasable nor sold out for several hours. You could put it in your cart. You could sometimes get to the checkout but for hours this went on with most people being unable to complete the transaction. Walmart canceled some pre-orders. Gamestop of course sold everything in bundles with shit nobody actually wanted like Destruction All Stars (which with increase next-gen prices is $70). Some people who signed up for the Sony direct pre-orders got their email notices throughout the night.

I half-heartedly attempted various methods of getting it despite the fact that the only announced game I'm really excited for is a PS3 remake of a game I've beaten a half dozen times. As I noted on Discord the pre-orders were originally scheduled to start tomorrow which is the same day the Nvidia 3080s are supposed to be available. I'm almost tempted to just invest in one of those now instead.

I predict the only place to get a PS5 on Nov. 12th if you haven't already pre-ordered will be Ebay.

Microsoft bought Bethesda's parent company. So, yah, that's a thing.

Yeah, it’s an interesting attempt by Microsoft to try and keep the Xbox relevant still. Too bad they did it after Todd Howard turned Bethesda into a joke.

How did Todd Howard ruin Bethesda other than FO76? I'm just as excited for TES 6 as I was for Skyrim and will probably play their space game too if that ever comes out.

Well, if you like playing Skyrim on your fridge, he's been a boon. Personally, I got sick of Skyrim early in Obama's second term.

Skyrim's in my top 5 games of all time, so I can't really be mad about that. It'd be cool if we got TES 6 sooner, but I'm not going to hate on a studio for not rushing out mediocrity.

Does it mean Xbox exclusivity for Bethesda titles?  If so, then that is the end of good Bethesda game as far as I am concerned.  If not, then who gives a fuck.

Xbox and PC exclusives, presumably.

I don't see them taking it off Windows, but it may be a timed exclusive or something. Don't worry, you'll have 20 years to try new versions (I'm also a bit over the time spent porting it to refrigerators). The way they've been milking Skyrim, we may only see a single release from the company in the next ten years, so who cares.

I'd say beyond the weird obsession with releasing new versions of Skyrim, trying to grow beyond working on a single rpg at a time was what impacted Bethsoft the hardest. Growing the company to be more than a simple development house, making a launcher and supporting a ton of teams...just not the kind of thing I'm too keen on.

You'd think that whomever owns the IP, they'd learn that putting the time in to making a genuine open-world RPG like Skyrim pays off.

They've already said that games which were showcased in the PS5 presentation are still in development (Ghost something and something else). I just imagine there may be timed exclusivity on XBox Game Pass or early releases and such.
