Pretty much what everyone predicted

Yeah. This is least surprising info in the history of gaming leaks.

Still took them like over 6 months to confirm

The monthly payment route is going to help a lot of people in the long run. Though that will add up fast with Gamepass and all the other services they want to push with it. Either way it'll lighten up the burden on some peoples wallets and could be attractive for many people. The Series S design is just..... bad. Wow... and only ONE USB port? What? They really were serious about "cutting costs" with this design. I hope we get pictures of the back because this thing looks.... just not good. The thing does have the advantage of being small, easy to pick up and take any where I suppose. The $299 and $499 price points are damn good for the next gen launch. Sony is going to be pressured to match that.

420 a year is a hell of a money sink though. If people weren't in so much of a hurry to buy everything at launch, and just wait for a decent sale and finish their current backlog, then they'd easily save from spending 420 a year.

25 per month or 300 (1 year, 600 years) for console and Game Pass is very good.

MS gone fishing perhaps? Will Sony take the bait?


SanAndreasX (on 08 September 2020)

The Series X looks like an old mono radio.


LivncA_Dis3 (on 07 September 2020)

hahahaha def looks like a subwoofa!


DonFerrari (on 08 September 2020)

So 25*24 (2 years payments) = 600 or a console plus 5 full priced games... very reasonable with a library of 100 games at the start... 35*24 = 840 or the console plus a little over 5 full priced games. Those would be very good financing plans and in Brazil would make big success... perhaps they will need 5 year payment plan since they won't release for such low prices over here.


siebensus4 (on 08 September 2020)

If Series S is a rebranded One X then the price is pretty good. But it's still a compromise since you get a cheaper PS5 model with the same specs as the high end model.


Azzanation (on 08 September 2020)

Considering how expensive those RTX30 series will be, these consoles shouldn't be too expensive.


Chazore (on 08 September 2020)

What's the 30 series got to do with the consoles though?. It's like a totally different market.

Azzanation (on 08 September 2020)

Because for $500 you can buy a 30TF GPU.. meaning these new systems pushing only 10+TF shouldnt be too expensive since they are not pumping out anywhere near the power level of a 3070.

I still don't see what a PC GPU has to do specifically with a complete console unit, let alone the price.

Plenty of people were summing up the prices for the new consoles at around the 500-600 dollar range anyway, but they also didn't include Nvidia GPU prices when making those bets either, which is why I'm wondering why you're making that kind of comment, because to me it doesn't relate....unless it's a price debate (Colteastwood loves to bring that up).

Consoles use PC tech and if that PC tech is inferior it also means cheaper.

Chazore (on 08 September 2020)

So the new cards are somehow "inferior" now, and thus must be made worth pennies?.

I'm still not sure just exactly what you're trying to get at here. The consoles are still using AMD's custom GPU's inside, not an actual like-for-like desktop GPU with the exact same specs here.

Azzanation (on 09 September 2020)

I understand that, however considering the power output on these AMD chips, technically they shouldn't be too expensive. Not when Nvidia have tech that blows these cards out of the water. The only expensive thing in these consoles should be the SSD. But will wait and see.

Chazore (on 09 September 2020)

Don't forget that AMD made a deal with two of the big 3, which would naturally make them a better deal for both parties, while Nvidia only has a deal with Nintendo for a totally different kind of chip and not with the desktop GPU's.

We've even yet to see what Big Navi is going to be like (though I'm not expecting a better push over Nvidia, barring power saving and a slightly cheaper price tag).

Find it amusing that people call this design "ugly". It is literally just a box... while the PS5 is trying to mimic the female private parts... PS5 is the ugliest design I've ever seen for an electronic device.

Must be because some people think it is ugly.

Series S is so ugly that it makes the ps5 beautiful when close to it.


VAMatt (on 08 September 2020)

I can't agree with that. The PS5 looks weird. The Series S isn't going to win any beauty contests. But, when sitting under your TV, it's going to look like a video game system (that black circle will be facing up, in actual use). The PS5, like many Sony consoles, looks....different.
