It's possible that's just one of the colour options and the default one's a solid black, but I like the black and white so I'm hoping they do go that way. Hopefully we'll get to see it pretty soon now they've started showing bits off

Problem with changing the PS control is that it's a design classic and over years of playing with it the feeling in our hands is just natural. One of the reasons I've never got on with the Xbox is the controller feels too clunky.

From the other shots of it this new one looks very similar to the DS4 shapewise, the front profile seems to make it look more clunky. Need to see it properly but I hope the size is the same

There's a digital version without a disc drive that I assume will be a fair bit cheaper, but at the moment download games seem to be more expensive than physical so I'm staying in the 20th century there.

Yes not sure what’s the benefit as you can’t buy games 2nd hand and all downloads are well expensive until they are a year old at least

If this is accurate, bloody hell. The original PS3 was a tank and now they're doing a bigger and more awkwardly shaped one

The weird plinth that it looks to use to stand horizontally should help with cooling, I just hope it's quiet with it. The fat PS3 was like a plane taking off whereas my PS4 has been like a monk in a library since I bought it on release

My launch PS4 sound like.. well a shuttle Launch. It also has coil whine which is so annoying. Have to totally unplug it when not in use.

I saw an article that said the Ps5 has a well thought out cooling system specifically to combat the loud fan issues

£359 digital version, £449 with disc drive, released November 19
Great price but not massively buzzing for any games yet. £449 for the premium one is really decent. Deffo forced their hand to undercut MS last week

Same for me with the games, a lot of fantasy genre stuff that does show off the lighting effects really well but does little for me personally

Yeah I'm the same. Don't really touch any of the demons souls type stuff. Was hoping for a glimpse of GTA 6 over the ps5 preview window, looks to be a good way off though. Price point is decent. Think I'll happily go digital only next gen

Think I might wait a while let the hype fade a bit. Not a lot to play there with my kids.. Would have liked a new a ratchet and Clank game always been a traditional launch game.

I'm gonna go disc, want the option of trading in stuff I don't get on with. I'll buy my sports games and generic stuff digitally but like the weirder/rarer stuff on disc.

Also side note I found a few boxes of my old consols in the loft during a recent move. Spent a few fun weekends with my kids showing them all the old games

Some of rhe old Dreamcast games I found are now worth stupid money. One is selling for £120 on ebay or £112 trade-in in CEX.

I loved the boxing game on the Dreamcast.

I'd definitely want a disk drive, buy all my games 2nd hand on eBay and sell them on when I'm done, sometimes for a small profit. Would be tempted for digital if PS Now was improved.

I probably won't bother for a year or so though.

You're in luck, that was one they had in the previous roundup, think it's a launch game or at least soon after

I'm definitely going disc, the price difference will be covered fairly quickly by trade-ins and it takes me an age to download PS4 games, never mind much bigger titles
