- Contains super SSD with "a raw bandwidth higher than any SSD available for PCs"
So that's code for either a Proprietary, or non user replaceable storage solution for the PS5 right? Awesome!

I assume it stands for "Solid State Drive", referring to a very expensive form of harddrive you can buy right now that is incredibly fast. You could put one in your PS4 right now if you wanted & dramatically cut down on your load times. Of course, you're also going to be paying dearly for it, which makes me wonder how goddamn EXPENSIVE the PS5 will be. -_-

The wording seems to imply that they're using some kind of proprietary variant of an SSD. Not that Sony would ever use proprietary memory on their devices. ;)

SSDs are fast. They're even faster if you design a game around how fast they are.

But SSDs are rapidly dropping in cost as well. You can get one for 2TB that has the top of the line specs for less than $200, so I would imagine they are using something like that and HOPEFULLY is drops in cost by the time PS5 releases in a year or so.

Sony saw how successful the PS4 was and they also  witnesses Microsoft  get away with the Xbox ONE X and decided the PS5 will most likely be $499.99 with no cheaper alternative.

I think, if anything, they'll probably keep an eye on Nintendo.  Sony put out a revision with a 'pro' version of the PS4 together, and Nintendo is rumored to be doing something similar for Switch.  MS put out an 's' model and then put out the 'X' over a full year later.  So getting one model out there and then doing the "cheaper" and "pro" version together seems to be the way to go.

It took me way too long to accept that it isn't just a mock up of some kind.

I don’t love the design, but I don’t hate it either. The Digital Edition looks better due to being symmetrical. That’s also the one I would get as I’m already all-digital on PS4. I don’t know why Sony loves designs that are more difficult to clean. Look at all those places dust can get into. Boo/hiss.

I’ll see where I am in 2025.

Also, Sony is still fucking with USB Type-A. Boo/hiss again.

Eh, we're still kind of in a transition period for USB standards.

No, you’re still holding on. Let go. It’s going to stay that way unless you let the past die. Kill it if you have to.

Pokepal still uses a Blackberry, he's not the kind of person to ever let outdated tech go.

Apparently Naughty Dog is exempt from Sony's recent stand against sexual content in games because there's a full blown sex scene in TLOU2.

Sony was THIIIISSS close to repeating their whole "FIVE HUNDRED NINETY NINE US DOLLARS" fiasco. I think they were pulled back from that precipice by Microsoft pricing so aggressively.
Carmine Red, Associate Editor

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.
