Can't wait only a few more weeks ladies and gentlemen! :D
@BigBoss Same here amigo!
I'm always checking my order list on EB Games website since I am from Australia to make sure that my order didn't get cancelled or delayed xD
Damm that thing is huge!....seriously not liking the bulky design but fortunately all that really matters is the games.
That's not called regular USB it's called USB type-A.. Why am I seeing unprofessional people everywhere nowadays?
Wish I also had gotten one. Next April for me for ps5 for now il be happy with the series s
I figured you would be PS5 first
@S2kill Had massive expenditure Sep Oct with spending on birthdays etc so to pop out another £359 for a ps5 digi plus another £70(cod) was too much of a stretch managed to grab a series S so il buy cod for that Should be able to nab a ps5 April approx
Father - Couldn't you have put down a deposit? I'm guessing that's what 99% of people did. And I think SONY will be working extra hard to get more units ready before Christmas. There's not a huge price difference between series x and PS5, and PS5 has a HUGE power advantage over series s.
Exact same thing for me. PS5 as main console but couldn't get one and have managed to pre order a Series S as the 2nd console. If Microsoft come good with the games I may consider upgrading to the X in s couple of years.
Seems the pad is very close to being a game changer for most who got their hands on it
Seriously, everyone's raving about it. i just watched ACG. He usually has a (albeit slight) preference for the feel of the xbox controllers, but he's gushing about DualSense, saying it's the most comfortable, well made controller. He genuinely was almost lost for words lol
I can't wait until we get some more video breakdowns of how it actually works in game. I am really hoping it works the way i think its going to. The triggers for me are what i am most intrigued with. I am really hoping the trigger tension changing depending on weapon actually works in practice.
I said months ago people were sleeping on it and it was going to be the true difference maker on how games feel. Not a couple Tflops or a faster SSD.
@Sully, I watched Karek this morning as well. Very good things to say about the DS. Can't wait to hold it myself. @nick... watch these guys: https://youtu.be/i_wePORr_R... they show a good demo with a zipper in the astro playroom and how it reflects on the controller.
Darth. . That's one of the first ones I watched funnily enough
@darthv72, yup, Karek was also loving the headphones, but I honestly think he might have peed a little thanks to the DualSense controller lol
@BigBosss I checked mine this morning as well, I preordered it from Best Buy. So far it’s still active, hopefully it stays that way.
Pre ordered mine back in june from a company that started pre orders without knowing how many units they would be sent. I was an idiot who trusted that they knew what they were doing but I recently got e-mailed a apology with a message that read: 'expected delivery date: 21th may 2021'... I really hope Sony steps up production quick!
For those who pre-ordered on time. 😢
Here's the CNET one: https://youtu.be/la0ZDBklLs... Dwarfs the XSX.
Console is huge!
I get paid over $90 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing, HERE► https://is.gd/jobs46
It's 5% larger in cubic inches.
i'm 90% sure it's only got something like 5% more volume than XBSX. Ps5 is much taller, but XBSX is fatty.
That's right. What's more, if you look at the volume of PS5 disc and digital, it's actually smaller volume than the Series X. A convoluted approach to make a point, sure, but they're essentially the same size lol PS5 is taller and slimmer, Series X is shorter and fatter.
are those 5% with the stand?
Reviews of the controller seems very very very positive. Exciting!! Check out the giant bomb quick look for astros. Lot of cool nostalgia from the ps history and the controller seems to be doing some fascinating stuff. https://youtu.be/VablLL0jMG...
Oh man that’s a beautiful piece of tech right there. Can’t flipping wait! We’re almost there!
goes into detail on every item apart from if the HDMI cable is 2.1
She also missed the fact that the controllers back side is the PS buttons as texture.
Love that design detail.
We all already knew that.
IGN confirmed 2.1 cable in their unboxing.
A beauty!! 16 more days to go!!
Can't wait to see final reviews with actual impressions. Any idea when the NDAs run out?
This thing is huge af, damn. Gonna wait for a MK2 I think.
It's definitely tall, but it's volume is only 5% bigger than series x, we now know.
True, but still, I already don't like the 'futuristic' design and the PS5 being this tall doesn't make it any better
^ lol fair enough, wouldn't do for us all to like the same things.
@redrum More room for air flow, larger board makes for better heat distribution, more room for larger heat sink, only needs one board. It's not just large for the sake of being large.
@ZeroBlue2 - "More room for air flow, larger board makes for better heat distribution, more room for larger heat sink, only needs one board." Of course, I get that that's the reasoning behind it, but design-wise I think they could've managed to make it less obtrusive than it is now. That's where Microsoft has done a much better job with the Series X's blocky design imo, even if it's volume is just 5% less bigger as stated above.
Enjoy the wait
We know its big already how long are you people gonna say it.
I don’t get the appeal of unboxing videos. Like I was watching the IGN one and the dude is just reading the back of the controller box. He then unboxed the charging station and literally says, “it just kind of sits there.” I want to see the UI, demo the game, and explain the haptics and show it best as you can. I couldn’t care less what they printed on the box, how you cut through the tape, how it’s packaged and what cables you pull out of the box.
6th of November.
I don't either. I think it is mainly just another piece of content to consume while you're hyped for it, but there isn't much to be gained. Sometimes you can get a better sense of a product when in a persons hands, and the occasional good unboxer can give some useful insights you might not get from a product sheet. But the IGN unboxer sounds like they are crap at their job, so makes it that much less useful and interesting.
She missed the fact that the controllers back side is the PS buttons as texture.
Going to be awesome to have this bad boi with my other playstation systems. Playstation going to be dominating my living room again.
Ooop, thin box packaging....Deal breaker...Cancelling Pre-Order... ;) Its a joke all, so pumped for this just about two weeks away now!
Now all I need is to know how to get the psvr adapter and I'm fully set for launch
I wish you would tell us how long before you test it, hopefully very soon 😁
Gotta keep us wanting more. Gonna be a long two weeks. I have a feeling everyone was told to stretch out their previews as much as possible leading to launch. Which imo smart way to go marketing wise
No no no enough with the spoilers...I want to keep the unboxing for me....
I am just praying to God to help me get a PS5. I haven't been able to pre order yet.
Looking forward to my console arriving in a couple weeks. I will be keeping it vertical this time off to the side of my tv stand. I’m excited!
That’s big b**ch! Behemoth! It looks atrocious horizontal lol. Vertical for me!
Lol, next Gen was meant to be vertical. I don't sit my consoles vertical but next Gen is so ugly horizontal.
Def wasn’t supposed to be horizontal. That stand looks like a last minute add on because people were bitching that it wouldn’t fit on the shelf lol. I will make room for vertical. Xbox I might do horizontal, it’s just a black rectangle.
Just to keep in mind on horizontal vs vertical on the XSX. The XSX has the base on it for vertical orientation that you can't take off, so it'll just be hanging off the side if you lay it horizontal. If you have it vertical, there are apparently rubber feet on the right side for when it is laid horizontally. So it seems either way you have it, some part of a stand for the alternate orientation will be visible, which I find a puzzling decision from MS. But I don't see the feet quite as much in the promotional material, so I'm guessing vertical will be the most aesthetically pleasing for the X as well.
The only thing aesthetically pleasing about Xbox is the green thing at the top lol. No matter which side it’s on it’s a block box. The ps5 looks pretty cool vertically imo. A god of war faceplate will be bought. Horizontally it looks like something was melted under a heat lamp and it’s upside down with the disc on the bottom.
They should never have her do an unboxing again lol. Rips the box, loses parts, missed details smh.
cant believe Next Gen is only a few weeks away.
I watched the unboxing of both new consoles and was interested to see how Sony would package the PS5. While I don’t think Xbox has much to offer yet and will be getting a PS5 in a couple weeks, goodness that Xbox packaging felt premium, especially compared to the bland business like packaging of the PS5. The closest thing I could give to a compliment is to say maybe they were going for a utilitarian packaging scheme, but that doesn’t feel right given the more radical design of the console than we are used to seeing out of Sony. It’s really not even an important thing to care about, just thought the two different approaches was interesting.
All xbox packaging has been premium even back in xbox og. Solid packaging and decent compartments for the gear. Playstation on the other hand have always been minimal for some reason. Nintendo is the same premium feeling packaging look how the wii was done with nifty cardboard drawers etx
to think a good chunk of us will be doing this in just a few weeks. It's always an exciting time :D
....so how long is the HDMI and DualSense charge cables?? That’s all I watched it for, I’ve seen the console and the controller a hundred times before!
