Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Ok I have both (xbox series x and ps5), and although the two are great machines, my lean is more towards the XBox despite its HDMI bug issue. I think old games being upscaled looks better, the interface is a bit better, and the unit itself looks much more pleasing and can actually fit in my stereo stand. Plus can't ever go wrong with an xbox controller.
Just my two cents

...and the Dolby Atmos, which I really miss when I play my PS4. What's the HDMI bug issue? I've had 2 Xbox One X's crap out on the video feed. Is that what you're talking about? Please tell me that's not the case with the Series X because I can't take that happening again. A royal PITA.

Google Xbox Series X HDMI BUG. Its something to do with the uncompressed format vs PS5 which is compressed. It only is an issue if using an AV receiver, some sort of Panasonic chip bug, that isnt fixable.

As someone that has worked on both the XBox looks good on paper but the early results that multi-platform titles perform better on PS5 is no surprise. I don't see any reason Sony dominance to change.

actually that pS5 controller is amazing, I just did that Astro demo, wow.. the possibilities are endless.

So reviewers were right, the hard drive on the ps5 wont store many games.
It wouldn't bother me if the games were just installed from the disk but so far all of them take 6 hours of download, and having to prepare ahead of time for what game you're gonna want to play isn't viable.

It's quite annoying actually I do miss the good old days of simply starting a game with the push of a button.

You will be able to fit every game available at launch about 390GB and still have 280GB available. You can easily fit 6 landmark blockbuster 100GB titles on the drive at once. Games like that only come out every few months and how many games do you play at the same time. If you want to install games from disk get the version with the optical drive. The Xbox you can use an external drive for temporary storage, but still need to copy it over to play the game. Sony just doesn't want to take the piracy risk.

I use large external HDs with PS4 and XB1, so I can have all the games I own instantly available. Will external HDs be possible with the new consoles?

I have the version with the drive, there hasn't been one game so far that hasn't required a 100gb download.

External drives are already available, as of now you can not store PS5 games externally, Sony is just being cautious. As more games are available, the space is required and the security tested they will probably allow you to store the latest games externally. Right now there is not enough games release to fill the internal drive so there is no reason to store them on an external drive. You can store all your PS4 games on an external drive on PS5 just not the latest PS5 specific stuff. It's just gaming media headlines.

It's launch and things are always rushed and crazy at launch, things will settle down as they always do. At launch there was only two game that are over 100GB, the ultimate edition of Spiderman (Standard Edition is only 50GB) and COD. So I'm guess those two games happen to be all the games so far you have had to install.

Is there any evidence of PS4 hacking due to the external HD option? With these enormous 50-100GB games, together with the relatively small capacity of SSDs, I'd say the ability to add an external USB drive to PS5 is essential. It also means you don't need to wait an hour to be able to play a game, which makes the fast speed of SSD marketing spin seem rather ridiculous.

Damn these things are hard to find. The online retailers have been such a cluster .

Also for those with hard drive concerns just wait a bit. From videos I have seen there is an extra slot for another hard drive. Trust me, this is NOTHING special, and people will be cranking these out in high capacity soon driving the cost down. You will be able to double, or potentially triple your space soon enough and wont lose any performance.

Also if anyone has tips in finding one of these things around Cincinnati let me know. Found an xbox, but really want a ps.

Trying to get a ps5 has been such a frustrating process that I think I'm just going to wait until there's a ps5 slim in a few years and let my ps plus account lapse. I rarely use it and I'll let withholding my $60 a year subscription fee be my protest.

I got one day 1 but truth is I haven't played it much because there isn't much to play. So I don't think it's worth rushing until the second wave of games comes out

Just wait until after Santa comes and goes. There should be plenty to buy then. I'm getting both consoles, but in the meantime, just collecting the games while I wait. And there really is only the new AC and Spiderman as far as launch titles go, IMO. So I don't feel like I'm missing anything right now.

Luckily I got my ps5 from eBay and not from a con artist , yes it cost me 200.00 more then retail but that price was worth it to me for the hassle of finding one and no way I’m camping in some stupid line , rather work and make money then sit around idle

I hate supporting scalpers, but you probably did the right thing for your own sanity. They dont make this thing fun to purchase.

I have a gamestop bundle coming in tomorrow, I got pretty lucky and grabbed one as soon as it dropped online. Been playing watchdogs on ps4 and absolutely loving it. I cannot wait to see it on PS5 for comparison.
