who didn't get in a ps5 preorder?

Recommended Posts

this guy. bestbuy.com fought me for two hours before pulling the plug while i was on the final order processing page. walmart sold out before could get one in the cart (did get a 2nd controller ordered though). target? nope. gamestop's entire site went down for a bit, and it came back up and sold out while i was fighting bestbuy. so that was a fun evening.

I didn't get a Ps4 til like 4 years or so after it launched, the likelihood of me getting a Ps5 in the coming years is very unlikely. Depending on what games I might consider it eventually, but considering both Sony and MS are releasing 1st party games of theirs onto PC I have no incentive to get a console.

I plan on waiting until the inevitable redesign before I buy one, so no FOMO here.

Yeah, this gen launch seems like it’s based on FOMO and nothing else.

 

Except maybe Demon Souls...

I’d rather wait til they have more of a solid lineup of games about a year or so from now.

Gran Turismo 7 and FFXVI are going to take a while along with any prospective fighting games so I’m not in much of a hurry to get it ASAP.

there's a few decent ps4 games that i never played, coming in for free on launch day with ps+, so i'll have plenty of grinding to do. wife is pretty pumped for resident evil 8, dmc5, and god of war. i don't really have anything particular that i'm looking forward to, but i've never picked up a console on launch day before so why not. also an excuse to finally upgrade to a 4k tv lol.

and demon souls looks like fun so ...

I just saw the new trailer for REVIII and that one also shot up high on my priority list. 

I heard that PS4 games can run on the system but I’m hoping that the digital PS4 games can transfer over so I don’t have to repurchase some of my digital games like the FFVII remake and DBFZ.

The PS4 was a letdown in those regards because there were a ton of digital PS1 games I bought on the PS3 but considered Sound Shapes as the only game they wanted to port over from my old console.

we've only bought digital games on the ps4 (outside of the ps4 system bundle and psvr packs that came with discs) so hopefully all those purchases transfer over to the ps5. i still picked up the disc version of the 5 though...you never know when it might come in handy for some old-school action.

i think psvr is supposed to be compatible with the 5 at launch, but even if it's not, we can still use it on the 4. the only ps we don't have is the ps2, and that's because the wife gave hers to a friend when she got the 3. still have all my old ps1 games from the 90's too. i wonder if they'd still work in any of the consoles...

After seeing this thread, I decided to test it out.... and I accidentally ordered a PS5.

I'm definitely not fighting for one. I didn't get my ps4 on launch either, and I didn't really care enough to get one until something happened to my ps3 and I needed another playstation.

They do not. PS4 doesn't even run CD-ROM, does it?

Kinda sucks. Only just bought myself a PS4. Kinda vaguely knew there were rumbles about next gen coming. And now we're back on the backwards-compatible train? Damn. But, oh well. Will probably be a few years before there's anything enticing for me anyway.
