ITS FINALLY HAPPENING!!!!



https://hard-drive.net/sony-releases...he-disc-drive/
TOKYO — Sony announced this morning that they have developed a PlayStation 5 that’s just the disc drive.

“We did the PS5 that had a console and a disc drive. Then we did a PS5 that had a console and no disc drive. Well I think our fans would be pretty disappointed if we didn’t complete the trifecta and release a PS5 that was no console and just a disc drive,” said a statement from Sony today on social media. “Well that’s exactly what we have done. Introducing: the Disc Drive PS5.”

Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan released a quick video after the announcement to explain the specs of the new console.

“We are incredibly excited for fans to get their hands on the Disc Drive PS5, which is, of course, just a disc drive, and not attached to any console at all,” Ryan explained. “Fans will be able to insert any physical copy of a PlayStation 5 game into their disc drive, and watch it spin around. They will not be able to play any games on the PS5, or connect to a TV or monitor, but they can watch the disc spin around in that drive all they want. The launch price for the new console will be $499.”

It's NOT OK to joke about sony products.

Reflect on your behavior and then commit Sudoku, it is the only way to right your mistakes.

Sad thing is, if they came out with an external disc drive for the digital edition, it would sell.

I would buy actualy heh. I wanted disc edition, but they were selling it only with a 2nd pad (I have 5 ps4 ones already that I can use for now) and 2 games at over 300$ equivalent more. The surely inflated price of a separate drive, I'd save much more in just few months as there are great deals on used disc versions.

Garth Merenghi quotes
Most of you will probably know me already from my extensive canon of chillers including "Afterbirth" in which a mutated placenta attacks Bristol.

Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.

Btw I'm really happy with the console, it's silent loads quick etc. But, I'm really dissapointed in how Sony handles its exclusives. How is Bloodborne still 1080p 30? It even drops, if that's not something else, and has no antialiasing whatsoever. Killzone 1080p 30, multiplayer half res (horizontal or vertical, not sure), Order 1866 1080p 30, Driveclub same etc etc. God of War, checkerboard 4k, Horizon as well I think, Uncharted 2560. It's lazy and stupid on Sony's part.

There really shooting themselves in the foot doing this, I think they're resting on they're laurels as there selling twice as many PS5's then Microsoft with its series X.
https://www.givemesport.com/1695254-...ble-in-q1-2021

They seem to think its ok to not bother too much with optimizing there existing PS4 library or finding a way to allow you to play your PS1-PS3 games on it, whereas Series X can play nearly every old game and a lot of them are much improved with 60fps and higher resolution on some games.

Also the other thing for me is I could put Retroarch on an Xbox and play some of my older games and a whole lot of the older Sony machines on it too.

This. In many ways, MS is firing on all cylinders right now, while Sony is very much resting on their laurels.

I think it's largely because MS had a more comprehensive strategy for both backwards and forwards compatibility, established very early on, and structured their whole platform architecture around it. Sony "still believes in console generations", and everything else is very much an afterthought.

At this moment, MS seems to have better predicted how this console transition would play out, planning for a more gradual easing-in of the new consoles, without relying on alot of big exclusives to kick off the generation.

That being said, Sony is still winning the generation... although at this moment it seems to be more about supply than demand.

The whole 3D audio with headphones works precisely because the sound is right next to your ears from both sides, with minimal delay.

So they can use complex algorithms to create delay/volume change in either side of the ear sound to mimick how your ear would hear sound too. (the reason you can hear 3D sound but with only 2 years).

If you did that with speakers or tv speakers it's impossible. 1. Because the sound is coming from the front of you, thus making any sort of 3D sound not going to work.

Hence why you have to get complex speaker systems to achieve "surround sound" but not to the level you can get with Headphones and complex Codecs.

My dbrand plates came in. The matte black looks fantastic. Sony should have released the console in black from the beginning; looks much more sleek.

Got mine last night, and you're right Nunz. Looking at it I just don't understand why Sony chose only white. Matte black is so much better looking.

Sony direct ssems to be the best chance for folks I know. Just keep logging in a few times a day and trying. You'll land one eventually.

Sales on Sony Direct are few and far between. I missed by 4 minutes last one. It’s still next to impossible if you don’t have someone that can monitor the restocks full time. Not sure when it improves. Why are the exclusives taking so long too? I get the overall chip shortage problem on HW. But, why so long on games? Luck for us that can’t get one though. It would be super frustrating if great exclusives were coming out while we are stuck hitting refresh in our browser

It sounds like they've slowed down a bit. All I can say is hopefully it changes soon...

The games are a whole other problem..I'm glad I'm enjoying what I bought, but I would really like to see more available.

Crazy times to be a gamer.

That's crazy. A year ago I was seeing tons of xbones for under a hundred bucks, and PS4s for not much more. The whole world is whacked out right now.
