It's like assuming there will be shortage of controller at launch, if you actually need a 2nd one.
There might be, I remember Switch accessories being hard to find at launch

I thought about ordering a PS5 and then I saw there are zero exclusive games to get excited about. At this point I'll just wait until there is something worth playing.

I wonder if this will be similar to the switch. Not too many people were able to get playstation 5s. Plus only 6 games at launch.

That being said, I managed to get my order in with an extra controller. Planning on playing Demon Souls and Sackboy. Those two games alone could last me months.

newb q's for you or anyone deep into this stuff:

will PS5 w. a disc plater be able to "upscale" PS4 game discs somehow?
will there be PS5 disc versions of PS4 releases?
will PSVR & its accessories be compatible w. PS5?
any word on an updated PSVR?

I have an unused, boxed, unopened PS4 Pro. If I were to sell it (and an unused PSVR + accessories), would I get bottom-dollar for it now? Am thinking of waiting a year to get into it all. I'm busy.
is ebay best for selling it, or is Gazelle and similar sites better bets?

ty
1. Yes, PS5 will play PS4 games at least at PS4 Pro settings, and take advantage of the higher system specs. Many will be updated specifically for higher frame rates/resolution. Some will get better textures and specific support for the new hardware features (sound, haptics, NVME storage).
2. Yes. See above.
3. Yes, but see #4 if you haven't bought in yet.
4. Yes, but not at launch. My guess is a year out.

I missed the PS5 by seconds at Best Buy... So guess I will just pick up the $35/month Xbox series X Tuesday.

Dude, I have a 2070 I got last summer. Are you seriously saying my PC is last gen already or do we have to keep buying top of the line GPUs to remain current gen? Or should I get a 3080 and then have people call me last gen in 5 years, which is what PC people do to console users after their platform has been out for a while.

Wow... $70 for a controller now huh? Guess games and all the other accessories will go up in price too eh? Starting price $69 for a game on PS5? Sheesh. Thats why I wait until the next model/version/revision comes out before I move to the next gen console. Get the improvements, a lower price and hopefully dont have to deal with issues/problems on the first release. To me its just a waste of money jumping onboard early.

Why are you shocked about a $70 controller. Joycons were more expensive at $79 a pair.

I feel your pain, they botched this.
Yeah, I don't get this entire holiday launch season. By far Sony screwed this the biggest, with the lackluster announcement to just a blood bath of pre-orders. And I think the only mitigation was the few folks invited through a PSN account to have special pre-order day/time.

Similar with the RTX 3080 launch here too. That was at least a bit better, but the fact crap is sold out in minutes and stores got you know, 5 items is a joke. They all swear it wasn't a paper launch, but the fact is either bots were VERY good or they didn't have enough on hand. A hot item like this and a story doesn't even get double digits of the item?

They should have ramped up production and I won't buy the BS argument if they make too much it'll just sit unused and they will be in financial ruin. The RTX 20XX series had an odd demand at the end of its life due to the pandemic. The Switch should show console demand is surging. You can't find an affordable power supply for a computer anywhere.

They have had, I'll say even a SHORT time-frame, 3 months to know about this. Nvidia and Sony should be ready. If it's TRULY a lack of labor/parts from the pandemic then be honest. Tell us where you're at making product. Release the actual numbers, restore some consumer confidence.

I'll say this, I haven't bought ANY Sony products since a PS2 because I don't want to play this hunt and find. By the time it's stable, I've had logic kick in and don't waste my money. Same with graphics cards, the last time I got a new one at/near launch was in 2008.

Sorry for the rant, just during covid we're all stuck inside and they know this and gaming has soared during this time. Take advantage of the hype and don't continue to sour the relationship.

Nintendo are the only one with exclusives. Xbox already shares its library with PC. Sony has already started releasing their exclusives on PC and have stated that they hope to bring their first party titles to other platforms. Cross platform and cross generation is the death of exclusives. Sony will be releasing games on Xbox and Microsoft will be releasing games on PlayStation. Not to mention that Microsoft and Sony actually partnered up this gen but people seem to forget that.

Controllers tend to be hard to come by on release day when a new console releases. I'm surprised that they have been so easy to come by for pre order so not sure maybe Sony learned from previous launches

Which Sony games are coming to Xbox?

From the PS5 gameplay showcase the other day, Sony still has console exclusives -- notably the next Final Fantasy - Final Fantasy XVI.

Console exclusives is what garners the marketshare and builds the ecosystem.

Muwahahaha!!! PEASANTS!!! I am one of the chosen who has been granted the privilege of preordering the PS5 tomorrow at 10am.
It feels SO good not having to refresh the page every minute just hoping for a sudden CHANCE to preorder the PS5.
All I have to do is click my one-of-a-kind url given specifically to me so I can preorder it.
-sigh- I really hope karma realizes I am joking and doesn't take my PS5 away.
It already stole a genuine sense of humor from you.

not likely.

people that couldn't preorder a console wouldn't have a reason to preorder a controller.

and most wouldn't need more than one controller that comes with the console.
