Salalah, Oman
haven't you reserved the gold ps5 already? :lollipop_beaming_smiling:

I'm still waiting for a more affordable OLED 4k tv. i may get one in a couple years when God of War Ragnarok hits.
No preorders here yet, probably by next week. Keep an eye for Xiaomi OLED, or try to find an LG C9/B9 now before they're all gone.

Did anyone actually see an expansion port on the PS5?
I believe it's behind one of those plates, if they're removable (more likely they are).

Burce Lee kinda cheated here.

a) the first karateka comically throws a punch bare foot (no grip at all)
b) Bruce Lee wears shoes, has much better grip and essentially just pushes the guy back, by attacking him from below>up in motion, by putting his upperbody, and front right leg (grip) behind it.

He even is aided by his legs, right before the pushback you can see how Lee "dips" and then lands the "punch", sort of a upper-cut-push-back. Rest is inertia, a guy wearing leather shoes on a slippery surface losing grip, tumbling backwards. You can even notice how Lee leans towards, puts his upper body behind the "push".

I would have crushed him!
You all know that!
He cheated by using a superior technique?

That's like saying, Sony cheats by putting out superior 1st party games.

I think it's worth it. Consoles launch in less than 2 months and we still don't know some of the details of SONY's internal hardware. Same questions asked by fans and experts alike are unanswered as everyone picks through Cernys'vid from months ago for reference.

Same energy towards MS for not showing much software actually running on the world's most powerful console
First man see the sources of the tweet.

Second you are not a game dev or something similar so more technical details are not for you.

Third see the person who made the tweet.

Fourth is necessary any person who is agree with this kind of "polemic" to have a green avatar, at least Bo_Hazem Bo_Hazem never hide
its excessive favoritism in favor of Sony.

I got a launch model PS4 and still works. Loud as fuck though, unlike my Pro.

So, apparently PS5's are serious business over in Ireland.
And the source is rando dude on facebook. Gotcha.

Edit: and about this, most game related stores were not accepting pre-orders, they were accepting reservations for potential stock. Only Smyths and a couple more had actual pre-orders. Argos doesn't even have the PS5 listed.

So I keep hearing MS has money hatted a big 3rd party for Gamepass but havent heard who for sure.

Watching the Cyberpunk show kind of hoping it says day one on Gamepass, is that too much to ask?

3rd Party game, or a overarching deal with a 3rd party? Also, is this related to the rumor of MS raising money for something that's not an acquisition or its own thing?

My friend's ass twitches at the thought of SEGA going exclusive to XB. I'm over the idea tbh. I tend to think if it was going to happen then it would have already. The only thing that gives me pause is XB finally got PSO2 over to the west recently...

I hope this isn't a global issue and Sony let retailers take preorders for systems they can't fulfill.. i mean Brad Sams did tweet something about Playstation availability and then we saw the complete miss-handling of the preorders. I mean why would Sony have set up that lottery system in the first place if availability wasn't going to be an issue? Sony has shown some good looking games but also lied about stuff at the same time. I do hope everyone that was able to place an order gets one on launch date.

I think it's a matter of luck. I was unlucky with the ps3 but I still own a functional ps2 ( the original one ) and a launch day ps4 so 🤷‍♂️

Could be, good point. It will be interesting to see. Sony did choose to show us that part intentionally, so I assumed it was the expansion bay door. I'm just guessing though.
im guessing too.

I also thought it might be something to do with the stand, but as it’s the bottom that’s also where the sticker would go.

So i watched this and here are my thought:

Ryan: "Microsoft are honest"

We're talking about same guys that tweet MGSV: TPP is Xbox One Exclusive, K

Ryan: "Sony are getting exclusive from 3rd, for MS it's not their philosophy"

No mate, they don't do it because they can't do it. They were doing it in PS3/Xbox360 era, but budget even for Microsoft isn't unlimited, you have to stop spending money at some point if it's not getting the money back.

Ryan starts to talk about play everywhere thing

Me: Heck, why do i need to play a videogame when i'm out? at work? or doing Sport? or going out with friends? or in the beach? The only time i play some mobile game is when i'm waiting for something, like last time i go clean my car, was playing MK mobile while it's washing, but that's not serious gaming lol (even the game itself is pure trash tbh *like pretty much all mobile games*, MK11 is the real deal), just pass time (and i don't always play mobile in this cases). Unless you're into mobile games which is fine but for me this is not real gaming.

Gaming is console at home after taking a nice shower.

(or if we talk outside gaming there's Arcade in back the days, but even Arcades aren't a thing anymore, expect a bit in some regions in Asia)
Seems like he really have the mind erased with Tomb Raider, Titanfall, etc etc etc even more recently Cuphead.

yeah I think this is it. Looks like that rectangular cover will pop off and the drive will go in.

edit -Or as SaucyJack SaucyJack has pointed out, that might not be it. idk.

I am almost wondering if that spot is actually for the serial number sticker? I have a feeling the top cover slides off and you install it like that, hopefully it will allow a drive with a heat sink!

Not sure why but I'm seeing a bunch of people saying that the internal SSD is replaceable?

It's almost certainly soldered to the board right? and Sony clearly said you ADD m.2 storage.
The original Eurogamer article is confusing... it says that the internal storage is replaceable plus you have another place for a expansible SSD.
