I didn’t see that about Demons Souls having two modes, but I’m not all that surprised. As consoles move closer to PC like set ups I don’t see anything wrong with giving people choices between framerate and FPS. Sure the majority you’ll want to hit 60fps, but some slower paced games locked at 30 hitting more fidelity (resolution, shadows, lod distance etc) can be a worthy trade off.The digital edition design is starting to grow on me (though I still think it will be a dust/fingerprint magnet) and it looks so much better than the drive-based PS5. I'm surprised they didn't just include a USB-based external Blu-ray drive as an add-on and keep the slim aesthetic default. All in all, I do prefer the stout cube design of the XSX.
The game reveal themselves - nothing that will make me buy day one. Sorta surprised that the Demon's Souls remaster will have a 'quality' and 'performance' mode setting. Figured that was a stop gap solution for the mid-cycle consoles (PS4 Pro and Xbox One X) until the next gen came in with everything running 60fps @ high IQ. I see that the 'cartoon-y aesthetic' is here to stay for this generation, not that I mind, I think the Nintendo-ish looking art-styles look great.
I wouldn't put any faith into those prices. I doubt anyone outside Sony knows what the price is. Hell Sony themselves probably don't even know what they will price it at this MS releases theirs.Price for the PS5 has leaked on Amazon France, 499€ for the one with optical drive and 399 € for the digital only https://www.nieuwsblad.be/cnt/dmf20200617_04993502
Waiting on scalpers to promise their preorder on eBay for anyone who pays them $1,500.There have been a few placeholder prices that have popped up on various Amazon websites. They've ranged from $499-$699 so far.
I find the pricing silence between Sony and MS to be pretty amusing. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this before and it's not like pre-orders for both systems won't sell out immediately anyway.
Cool. Now give us a price. And a release date. These things are four months away, and we still know very little about them.
My strategy will be to just pre-order both on Amazon the moment they go live.Give me a price and a way to lock it down so I'm not having to do dumb things to get one on/around launch day. That's all I want.
I have zero interest in MS's system, but I definitely want a PS5. Preferably the disk one (I want a movie player), but I'll take either.My strategy will be to just pre-order both on Amazon the moment they go live.
I haven't decided yet if I even want either of the consoles.... but given that Amazon doesn't charge before shipping, there is no harm in pre-ordering and then using the time leading up to launch to make my decision.
At the moment, I'm the opposite. I'm much more interested in Microsoft's offering, purely for their touted 4K upscaling and HDR being applied to all BC titles. That's a massive draw for me. Their first party offerings I can get on PC, but there is a wealth of older titles that I can't magically make HDR on PC. If this works, and works well, i'm sold. As for PS5, my only interest is in first party titles (again, anything I can get on PC, I will). The stuff they showed off already doesn't really interest me, so again we're back to how their BC looks. If I can play my existing PS4 library AND get a better experience on PS5, i'd buy one at launch. If the titles aren't improved, then i'll just hold onto my PS4 until Sony pushes out some titles that interest me.I have zero interest in MS's system, but I definitely want a PS5.

The knock on Amazon pre-ordering is actually that policy. Loads of people essentially lock them down but end up not getting them. Don't hate the player, hate the game...I know.
I'd actually rather people have to have some skin in the game so they can't do that.
Ugh, so "playstation now" again.Sony patent hints at cloud-based emulation of previous consoles.
