What does everyone think of the announcement of the PS5?
It's coming next Christmas which means we have just over a year to wait! I'm fairly hyped about this and I think I will be buying it on release day.
They've released a few details just to whet our whistles as fans and it already sounds like an extremely powerful machine. Here are some of the points I grabbed from the Wired article.
4k blu-ray player
Physical games will use 100Gb optical disks
Rumour has it that loading times will be really fast (It cut loading times from Spider-Man almost completely) and although there's no hard and fast news on backward compatibility at the moment, apparently we'll be able to play our PS4 library and potentially our PS3 library. Exciting stuff!
What is everyone else looking forward to? Will you be buying it or will you be waiting for the Xbox )currently nicknamed Project Scarlett) to arrive?
I am currently waiting on the release of it. I will be pre-ordering it as soon as it's released to the public to buy. I really can't wait!

From what I’ve read the SSD will only be small, if this is the case then it’ll only be able to have the OS on it unless you install a larger SSD or use an external drive. Backwards compatibility with PS4 games only is most likely but full BC I doubt.
Will I purchase on release? No, unless there’s full BC or there’s a game I wish to purchase.
This is a great move by putting a NVMe SSD slot in it, as these are very rapid in speed.
When i got my PS4Pro, I took out the 1TB HDD and put in a 500GB SSD, never looked back.

I have ane Xbox One X and a PS4 Pro so I do don't have that problem and if Sony had put a 4k blue ray drive in the PS4 Pro ( I'm wondering what company has already done that with their console) then they wouldn't need to play catch up on that part.
