Any genuine news on when PS5 will be released?
Not yet but if it is to release in late 2019 then between March (GDC) and June (E3) is when we'll get the first legit leaks/articles. Jason Schreier (Kotaku journo) has a prediction that we'll get the first leaks this year and I don't think he would say this unless sure/in the know.Any genuine news on when PS5 will be released?
Thanks CriggyNot yet but if it is to release in late 2019 then between March (GDC) and June (E3) is when we'll get the first legit leaks/articles. Jason Schreier (Kotaku journo) has a prediction that we'll get the first leaks this year and I don't think he would say this unless sure/in the know.
Otherwise late 2020 will mean ~March-June next year before any leaks but I still favour late 2019 as I think it is PlayStation's 25th anniversary and doubt Sony would want to miss that opportunity!
I think the mining stuff will have little to no influence I should think (hope). I do think >£400 is a very real possibility this time round and not just because of inflation. Microsoft especially seem comfortable with a £430 and now £450 price but Sony stuck with £350 for both.Do you think the e-coin mining shenanigans will affect console prices going forward? PC gaming has always been more expensive at HW level, but now GPU prices are being massively inflated due to farmers buying them up and memory has been getting more expensive too. Are we looking at £450+ PS5?
XBX has managed to come out at a good price for the spec, so hopefully consoles are immune, however, £450 is deemed the xbox premium product at double the price of the baseline. Releasing an expensive baseline new gen console historically shows slow console growth until the cheaper SKU becomes available.
Of course e-mining could be a bubble and things go back to normality in a year or two, but I think any new console with bigger specs than the XBX is going to be a high price in this current climate. Compared to a PC they will still be extremely competitive, but I'm not sure a PS5 can be released around the £350 mark like the original PS4, which certainly helped it get a big user base quickly back in 2013..
Only those games that always/require 60fps like COD and racers will do 60fps. Most other devs will always choose better graphics at 30fps even if they've got a petaflop of GPU power!Loving the thread.
Personally hoping that it will be able to run 4K 60fps native!!
Never tried to play a CD in the PS4 before. Just assumed it was a given as practically anything with a disc tray has in the past could at the very least play a CD...until nowHow long have you had your PS4 for, mate? To be honest, i'm surprised you just found this out..
Yeah, very disappointing and doesn't really make sense. There are far more features not the PS3 than on the PS4. You can't even play WAV music off a USB on the PS4, which is ridiculous.Never tried to play a CD in the PS4 before.

Phillips AND Sony co-developed CDsPhillips came up with CDs. They still have this:
Or maybe Sony just can't be arsed.
I can't remember the last time I actually played a CD and no one buys a console to play CDs.
I buy CDs, they just go in my laptop and get ripped to MP3 and FLAC then the CD goes under the stairs.
