    Personally i'm liking the PS5 look...
    The XBSX looks rather bland...
    But that's just looks...

    XBX is a must for me simply because i take my entire xbox account and games library with me, as should be the norm these days, PS5 i am only interested in for PSVR2 which hopefully will have vr controllers with thumbsticks this time round. lol ;)

    I'm a Sony guy going back to the PS1, so PS5 is a definite buy for me. I am a little nervous about the fact that it appears to only be able to stand up right. I just hope it's very stable and can handle being whacked by a dog tail, being bumped into, or having the TV stand bumped.

    First photo is of it on its side.

    As far as I go, I'll wait and see. I really love my Xbox One and hardly use my PS4.

    Sony are selling horizontal and vertical stands for the console, but to design it so that it requires a stand no matter what seems daft to be honest.

    This console war is being touted as the router vs. the fridge.

    Agreed. The fact that they have to sell a horizontal stand seems like a design flaw. Practicality loses out on coolness.

    The PS5 looks like an anime character showing the audience he's cool with a white trenchcoat.

    Assuming all the JRPG developers still go with PS5 though, of course I'll get it, when there's more games out that aren't just remakes and remasters.

    Most of the big Western games go to both and PC, Japanese games go with PS4 or Switch, so no reason to have an XBox when I have a PS4/5 and a PC.

    I've found the Playstations to have a wider variety of exclusives. I've never found myself tempted to get an XBox as the major slate of exclusives don't appeal to me, and seem to cater too much towards a certain demographic of FPS shooters.

    So last week Microsoft announced the prices for the 2 XBox', Wednesday Sony might do announce the prices for the PS5s...

    iJustine got 2 mockups from Microsoft and compared them to older Xbox'...

    I still can't understand why the X Box X needs to look so fat.

    The S is a good price no doubt though the HDD size is useless so your going to spend money to increase it and if you want a SSD then your going to spend more. PS5 still has the game advantage until Microsoft actually produces some half decent titles (especially fresh IP's).

    I think the Blu-Ray PS5 will match the XBox X $499 price but the digital console will be priced $350 & not $300.

    Considering the price of a rtx 3070 is coming in at £499 here in the UK, the XSX at the same price is a steal, 4k, 60 fps, ray tracing, hdr, back compat, plus i already have the XBX so i should get a nice chunk of change from trading it in to put towards the XSX. :)

    Personally i don't care much about the design of a console, it's the power of it that's important but i have to give it to Sony for at least making a design thats interesting. That black XBox block is just unappealing.

    If, and that's a big if, i would buy one it would be the PS5. I made the switch from XBox to PS4 back in the last generation when Microsoft screwed up the release of the 360 and it soured me on the Xbox.

    However if i decide to buy it certainly won't be this Christmas but sometime in 2021 to see how it performs with customers and if any problems arise.

    So, is that Hogwarts game an MMO or single-player game? I'm not clear on that from watching the trailer, but it does look pretty cool.
