PSU Writes: We dive into the history of limited edition bundles, slim and pro version consoles of the PS4 and speculate when Sony will do the same with the PS5.
It will take time. They are having supply problems. So maybe by 2023. I think 2022 will be another year still with many problems...
if they release a limited edition with Astrobot/ASOBI theme coloration ...i will literally buy 2 (no matter if i already have one) lol
Astrobot is very cool game and even more for all gamers that played all PS consoles. I try to collect all the stuff.
They could just release themed plates.
Really the system is not even a year old with severely shortage and this entitled writer want a slim or special edition 🤦🏿
Sony has been releasing a limited edition ps5 since launch! What is this author whining about?!
I work in the semiconductor industry. You're going to be waiting a good while before supply meets demand. And that's just in the personal electronics area.
Semiconductors for toasters?
@agent Mainly for vehicles but .... ok?
Technically... Every PS5 is limited edition at the moment. 😃
GoW pro is one of my favorites. If they made a themed ps5, fully customized with etched side plates, yeah Id buy that. The ragnarok logo fully cut out so when the system is on, the lighting shines through (even in standby) would be sweet.
Why not just release themed plates?
I think this will probably be the "new limited edition consoles" form for PS5. Maybe we will still get "normal" limited edition, but my guess is that the removable plates were specifically created for this.
I can see them maybe releasing limited edition plates rather than consoles and release a limited edition controllers as well.
Let’s just have the current model meet demand first before we start talking about this. Also I kind of like having something that looks straight out of Star Trek Next Gen in my house :D
Jesus you can not get one yet as it is lol lol not for at least year maybe 2 I say
Oh shut up, it's far too early to start talking about this. Let's get the chip shortages out of the way first.
The next-gen consoles haven't even been out a year and we're still in a pandemic & chip shortage. Even in 'normal times' talking about this so soon would be too early.
I for one hope they don't do a pro version again. It's a bit silly and useless. I played all of last gens games pretty much on the standard PS4...it's perfectly fine. The Xbox needed a pro console because their box could barely do 1080p...and even then they went all in on a powerful console only to make it pointless a few years later with the series s.
I didn’t like the idea of a pro console at first, but once I upgraded to an OLED and got a Pro version it was hard for me to want to go back to the base version. There was a significant difference between the consoles and I really enjoyed the extra horsepower. Nevertheless, if you are not a fan, I wouldn’t worry about Pro versions anytime soon. The most obvious reason is the semiconductor shortage and the other being that Sony wouldn’t be able to construct one at this moment at a price even remotely palatable to the consumer without taking a considerable loss on each unit. With more contagious variants of the virus making for a highly fluid situation who knows when supply issues will clear up.
The system has only been out for nearly 9 months & they can't meet supply & demand. Limited editions & Pro models are a ways off,something Sony doesn't really need to worry about at this very point in time.
considering it hasn't even been a year yet, lets slow our roll. don't even know if we'll have mid cycle refreshes for starters and the slim editions won't come until after the hardware inside has had several revs and can be made cheaper and smaller. in other words... you've got a couple years at least.
The power of the 5 doesn't need a pro
Limited editions likely within a year, the PS5 silm and possible PS5 Pro (if they keep that business model) at least 3 years. The only thing they need to do now is keep supply up, there are other minor improvements that could be made though minor revisions without an entire redesign cough *coil whine* cough, but right now people just want to be able to buy one
As if it’s never going to happen. Such a pointless article.
Maybe we'll see a different version when there isn't a microprocessor / GPU shortage? https://lmgtfy.app/?q=micro...
2022 for collector's edition of GoW. 2204 for slim. 2025 if they do a pro.
I mean....isn't it already limited?
