When it’s laying down, it looks like an old smartphone that has its battery expanding.

Please let it look like that.

If the real one doesn’t look like that I’ll be severely disappointed and refuse to buy one!
What happened to the design that looked like a router, a Star Wars set and a CD RACK...

BRING THAT ONE BACK, this new one looks shit, and I am refusing to buy one!

So I watched the launch video.
Then turned off in disgust about 3 minutes in.

GTA 5 is the opener for the next generation of console gaming?

2 gens was a good thing, 3 in a row is just a little overkill.
And it’s not even a launch title?
They’ve had 7 years to make gta 5, and even half assing it onto a 3rd gen, it’s not even ready at launch :rofl2:

So what I get from that presentation is that the PS5 is equal to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

If that announcement was for a new gta game, they would have my money the second I saw it.

They probably want people to buy the new systems before releasing it.

My biggest gripe are those tiny little air vents that will get clogged with dust

But what’s its size compared to an original Xbox?

The original Xbox is the yardstick for oversized consoles.

Also.
Why is the discless one called a digital edition?

As a co developer of optical discs, I am sure Sony knows that CDs, DVDs and Blu Rays are all digital media...

If it had a cassette tape I wouldn’t call it the digital edition, but it doesn’t.

Both are digital.

That is a misleading graphic. Look at the size of the Xbox controller. It looks way smaller than the PS5 controller, and it’s sitting in front of the console, which means it should look slightly bigger than the PS5 controller that’s sitting to the side. Not to mention this graphic assumes that all slot loading openings are the exact same size, which isn’t the case.

Because despite how nitpicky you are about semantics, most people universally accept that DVD’s and Blu-Ray’s are referred to as ‘physical’ and downloads as ‘digital’. But you already knew that, despite your disdain for it.
