which means disc-less version will be cheaper and will sell better and will “confirm” people aren’t interested in physical media anymore (under the guise of having a choice)
Holding out for the all black version. I personally think the white is a little over the topThat's the ugliest exterior to a piece of electronics that I've ever seen.
That said, if there's plenty of people that feel like Sam does, I suppose Sony did right. But as someone that started out in videogaming with the Atari 2600, it looks like some strange contraption from an alien world to me rather than a videogame console. It looks like they hired a Formula One aerodynamicist to design it.
I'm too much of a traditionalist to ever find this styling pleasing (Or Microsoft's cheap looking trash bin look), but what matters of course is what's inside these systems. And there, I'm confident both will have gotten things right. What the box looks like from the outside really holds little importance to me.
I haven't watched all the game trailers yet, but nothing too terribly exciting in the preview today for me personally. But I'm sure I'll dive into Gran Turismo 7 and Hitman 3 someday. And if by some miracle this new GTA V port has substantial additions to the single player content of the game, I surprisingly loved that enough on the PS4 where I'd buy it again and replay it.
I'd actually be tempted by just a prettier and smoother GTA V if it just would return to including a custom radio station like the early 3D GTA's did on the original Xbox. The classic country & western station (Rebel Radio) was wearing thin after 60 or 70 hours on the PS4 and none of the other radio stations held any appeal.
If I could seamlessly play my own mp3 library when behind the wheel on the PS5, that could make it fun to do all over again.
