It's official. The PS5 is launching on 11/12 for $499 for the standard PS5 and $399 for digital version. I think those are the prices everyone was expecting and hoping for. $399 for the digital version is a pretty good deal.

Sony released a FAQ for PS5 backward compatibility and it's better than I expected: https://support.playstation.com/s/article/backward-compatibility?language=en_US&lan=

Good for me as I have missed out on a bunch of PS4 games since not having a PS4 for a few years. If I end up with one it is nice to know almost all PS4 games will be available.

Jason

I've been starting to get interested in the PS5, but not for the new games. Now that they've worked out a lot of the compatibility issues, I'm looking forward to playing my PS4 games in a higher resolution with improved frame rates. PS4 games like Days Gone, Ghost Tsushima and MLB The Show 20 are like completely new games on the PS5. Having said that, I still don't see myself buying one before the fall...assuming I could even find one.

Therein lies the rub. They are almost impossible to find and will be for months to come. I won't pay over face value for one, and will only buy from a reputable retailer. If that opportunity arises, I will jump on it.

Same here. I read stories about people buying from scalpers and cringe. I'm so picky about who I buy from online when it's not an expensive item. I've never even bought or sold an item on Ebay.

Scalpers are bad enough. People scalping consoles and only sending you the box are just evil.  Ebay just as bad because they are just now trying to put a halt to "box selling."

That's some shady shit there. That kind of stuff has been going on for a long time on Ebay, but I think there's more protections against those types of scams now. My wife wonders why I hate most people.

Jason

It's about time they released different color controllers. Now if they could only produce more consoles.

Amazon had the digital in stock this morning but every time I tried adding it to my cart it would say my cart is empty.
