If you have PS4, it make bo sense to get PS5 now unless you die die want lasted tech.

I have no PS4 but will wait for market to stabilize, and for console promotion or discount, it will be at least 6 months to a year, waiting to get PS5 with disk drive and purchase those cheap $20+ interesting games!
So it's best to wait up for 6 months to have many good games + ps5 price lower. For 400 or 500 like ps4 Pro.?

Those scalpers are selling the PS5 on Carousell at ~$1200.

The retail price is $729 for the disc version, and $599 for the digital version.

As much as I want (yolo) one, it is stupid to let those scalpers have their profit.

I bet some pissed off buyers are spamming chats and nonsense replies at those scalpers.

I'll wait for when I can get one in store.

Not many games available. Rather wait for the slim version next year.

If it's a base PS4, I think it's okay to upgrade. Alot of newer AAA games dont run very well on PS4. If you have PS4 Pro then maybe abit less reason to upgrade.

Choosing to wait for discount is a very personal decision. Some will feel it's worth it but others will feel getting to play for 6mths-1yr is worth more than the discount.

PS5 Slim won't be out in 2021. Since when did Sony release a slim version a year after the original launch? That never happen before. Look back at history & you'll see a similar pattern across their entire library of home consoles (Excluding handheld/portable systems like PSP & PS Vita).

These are the US release dates:

PlayStation = 5 years
PlayStation (1995), PS One Slim (2000).

PlayStation 2 = 4 years
PS2 (2000), PS2 Slim (2004).

PlayStation 3 = 3 years (6 years for Super Slim)
PS3 (2006), PS3 Slim (2009), PS3 Super Slim (2012).

PlayStation 4 = 3 years
PS4 (2013), PS4 Slim/PS4 Pro (2016).

Conclusion; it takes at least 3 years minimum for a slim version to release. Not 1 year.

i am a current ps4 owner so i am not urgently looking for ps5.

Since ps5 is backwards compatible, u got a big library of games to play on ps5 at launch.


So far, there is no ps5 exclusive game that is really attractive to me yet.

Why you wanna store your game for so long?

You can delete and re-download its a nvme ssd....

Have PS4 Pro now so in no hurry to upgrade to PS5. Everyone should just ignore those scalpers and let them get burnt.
