    An interesting feature is that potentially you can install just the parts of a game you actually need, as someone who plays a story mode and doesn't touch online multiplayer I like the sound of that.

    Price will be interesting, they need to compete with Xbox, but they will have several editions I imagine...

    It'll definitely be GTA6 I reckon. Bully will come out on PS4, then a re-release for PS5, like they did with GTA5.

    Just did a quick search, 2021 minimum for Gta6, so definitely PS5 I imagine.

    Not sure I think that just leads to having to buy games in instalments, just a new way of fleecing you

    That already happens with episodic games and DLC really, the way I understand it this is more a technological difference where instead of the current method of inserting the disc and it just copying the lot it can be split to save time and disk space. It's not a big feature but a really handy one the way a drive fills up in no time now

    Just hope it doesn’t get abused to cash in. FF7 remake is half a game!

    Yep very late change of stance wasn’t it. I actually ordered an Xbox 1 on pre order, moved house but was told I had to cancel the order and start again but was sold out! Fuming so switched back to PlayStation but haven’t regretted it

    Glad it's still a year away to be honest, plenty of life left in ps4 I recon. Mate has a high end PC and yeah it better but not enough of a leap for me to get too excited.

    I'd much rather they concentrated more on making the thing super slick. Minimised loading time make sure the fucker doesn't sound like a shuttle launch when on that sort of thing.

    Another thing I Wish they would guarantee the current controllers will work as backups. Such a jip having to fork out £50+ on extra controllers for the odd multilayer game. Ps3 nobody used 6axis Ps4 nobody used the touch pad. It's just a gimmick. These adaptive triggers seem ripe for breaking and being a pain to replace.

    Agree, not sure many games have pushed the boundaries of the PS4. In defense of the controllers I have only used one from the first day release and still use it, the thumb pad has worn away but still works fine. PS5 needs a large HDD also as I hate the external one!

    Yeah agreed build quality isn't the issue currently but I am worried adding a motorised element that changes the resistance is going to be a weak point.

    My fhumb sticks wore away but I found replacements for a couple of quid on ebay and a really easy to follow tutorial on youtube. I would avoid the off brand rubberized ones as they went all sticky and gross within a month.

    I have stuck some aluminium ones on and the are lovely
