I've been trying to stay positive and hope that they have a solution for storage this generation, but I'm becoming a little more worried as we get closer to release.

Some install sizes have been revealed, and it's looking like we're getting 50GB-ish plus for a AAA game. The 825GB SSD will get chewed up pretty quickly at that rate! (Rest In Peace COD players)

My solution to that for the PS4 was a relatively cheap 4TB HDD, but that is of course not an option here as a HDD won't be fast enough to run games, and a 4TB external SSD would cost about as much as the system.

I'm still looking forward to the new system but not looking forward to the potential game juggling.

Part of the hopes of the SSD being mandatory is that games can cut down on all the unecessary data duplication they do in order to be fast on platter discs 0 like uncompressed audio (which also might be changed by the new audio processor).

I hope this is the case.

This came up in the Xbox thread and its a pretty interesting look at how Back Compatibility is looking on the two consoles.

I am guessing the PS5 is more of a change to the PS4 than the xbox lot.
Unless, did PS3 saves work on the PS4 between the crossbuy titles?

Cross buy and cross save were two independent features. Some games did support both.

It must be like the change to the PS3>PS4 and there must be more going on within the games coding then if some saves are incompatible.

Polygon is biased towards the Xbox but that is because they were given a $750,000 cash injection by Microsoft. Hence why the Xbox one got 8/10 and the PS4 got 7.5/10 back when they reviewed them.

The DF video was interesting and cool. I think as they made this after their Xbox one there was more to compare because they were able to see both and that is why there was a little more Xbox stuff in there.

I wonder if our save games on ps5 become activity cards so we can load right into them.

That would be as good, if not better than a quick resume feature since it could be every save file on the console that you could jump to in magic ssd load time

Maybe that is why some of the saves could not cross from ps4 > ps5? New save files for activity based loading?

I really like the look of the PS5 because it is different. I am bored of so many electronics looking samey. I remember when I got my first weird PC case. I did not want a beige box so I found a weird metal curved rhombus type thing. It was funky and interesting. All my pcs since have been in customisable/weird looking setups.

I like interesting things and the PS5 looks interesting. If we can have custom covers then excellent! I put different covers on my 3DS. I would have used them if I could on any of my other consoles.

You can also get a PS3 purely for Demon's Souls. Either way you're getting a quality console with great games.

I do have a PS3 with Demons Souls on it thanks to PSPlus, but the DS3 is a controller I cannot get along with. So the Dualsense 5 and the PS5 is where I will have to soul my demons

I can in a way. I can put the money aside and save it for when discless versions come in stock If not months, that is fine. I still have my Switch, PS4 and PC with plenty of games to tide me over until Demon Souls. I am not missing out.

Heck I waited a year for outer wilds, outer worlds and borderlands 3 to appear on steam. I can wait for the PS5 too if needs be

I know that while SONY and MS use similar chips in their machines, and do overlap on a lot of the same games, it would not be wise to think they will do the same things software wise.

I would not for a second think that anything MS have that you like would automatically be on the PS5 becuase I am sure SONY has tons of user information about games played and how from the millions of consoles they sold.

Quick resume could be useful I agree. I play tons of games and instant switching would help my inabilty (often) to remain attentive in a particular game, but with loading times being so incredibly fast and especially so if an actual game with Next Gen in mind (Miles Morales 20 odd seconds) it not being here at launch (if it does indeed get added) is not really a big a deal as not having any next gen games for your games console.

Well it's a fine place for a chair during a party

Ah parties - I did not think about that, I just kept imagining how tough it would be to sit there and twist and turn to look at the tv screen, or repetitive to keep moving it around the room whenever anyone wanted to sit on it and watch the telly.

Or how it would distract me if it were just me watching the TV and could see an empty chair right next to the screen.

Yodel is the worst delivery company in the UK. I had constant problems with them that if I found out they were delivering something then I would cancel it.
Once I was sat by the door to catch them out and they walked up to my letter box, pushed the "We missed you" letter through the door and walked away. I opened the door and asked what he was doing and he said he had missed me.

I stood there for a moment because it was just such a bizarre moment. Turns out my package was actually buried underneath a ton of others and he did not want to find it.
