I wasn't sure what to title this, but I wanted to complain about the PS5

Yeah, wasn't sure what to title this.

So the PS5 launches in a week or two, but honestly, I just have zero interest in it. I think the pricing is ridiculous. Yeah I get better parts, means higher price, but for the same price as a PS5 I could just get a better graphics card. I'm incredibly doubtfull of the whole 60fps at 4k (I don't think anyone's actually claimed that yet, but my point still stands) especially considering how they can barely hit 60fps at 1080p now.
There are no games on it at launch that are worth getting, that can't be gotten on PS4, or evn PC
CoD Cold War? PS4/PC
Spider-Man miles morales? PS4
Okay, wow, there are even less games available that I'm actually interested in than I thought.
The only two games that are exclusive to it, god of war ragnarok and Ratchet & Clank rift apart, don't have dates yet and until they do, I have no reason to buy it.
I guess that's why they made it "backwards compatible" so it's atleast got something for people to play, but why would I use waste hdd space for PS4 games that'll barely look any different? Seriously, you'll burn through hdd space with how annoyingly large PS4 games are, and I can't imagine PS5 games will be smaller.

I'm not too excited about it either. The only game I was looking at was the Demon's Soul remake. Having just played through the original last year I wasn't even interested in picking it up but checking out how they updated it. Turns out it won't have ray tracing, way to go next gen.

I still have to hear the fan noise and see if the hardware improves the performance of ps4 titles to consider it for a buy. So far I'm not sold nor really wish to be which sucks for me since If I don't pick it up at release then I won't be picking it up at all when they eventually change the hardware.

Then I have to consider paying for yearly psn network access and I nope out hard. I've seen the deals where it goes down to $30 for a year but I'd rather not subscribe to such services.

That didn't take long

Also looks like psvr is probably going to be abandoned before this gen is over. Shame since it was one of the more affordable entry points for vr.

Yeah, I'll be curious to see how loud it is this time.
How come you won't pick it up if they change the hardware?

This was also a big mistake. I remember they said something about it "being up to the developers" but everything that has an online mode needs it, which means that I can't even play destiny (among others) now since I stopped bothering with it. They really should just axe that and make the benefit of being subbed more worthwhile.

The past has made me leary that I'll be getting an inferior model.
Not like they inform the consumer that there was a change.


Having never looked before I'm glad to see the ps4 doesn't have a similar chart of cut features going on
It even got an upgraded wifi card after a bit


Regardless, it either has to be the release model or nothing for me
Paranoia in short
