Makes me think though, is there a thread on here for the best looking consoles?
No need.

Gamecube.

Then Dreamcast.

Yo, my mate wants a word with you all.

Digital Foundry put out a good video this week, looking at the logical price expectations and various other sensible factors that would affect the PS5's price, as well as any potential price reduction on the discless version.

TLDR: Anything more than £50 would be a sizeable hit for Sony.

Well worth a look if you think it's going to be £300.

I must say, that is mildly arousing.

Yeah it's a great piece this (as always from DF). I've always had £50 in my head as the likely difference. Anything less feels pointless and anything more feels unrealistic. Unless Sony have done some modelling that they're confident tells them how much more they're going to make from a digital-only customer over the ownership life-cycle, and they're willing to gamble on it.

Richard Leadbetter really does hammer home a lot of times how big he thinks the console is as well doesn't he! "A towering colossus of a unit" was a good one!

It looks like a prop from a 90's sci-fi movie, and I love it :D

It does look like something you'd expect to find a Blade Runner deluxe edition in, doesn't it :lol:

If anyone is still interested, July 2020 PS+ games are:

NBA 2K20 (has been £2-3 on every format for the last month!)
Rise Of The Tomb Raider

And then as an added thank you to subscribers for a decade of PS+, Erica.

Honestly though, I think PS Now is the much better deal at the moment if you're only subscribing to one of the Sony services. Last month we had Metro Exodus, Dishonoured 2 and we've had Spider-Man, Horizon ZD, Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy, God Of War and GTA 5 in the last few months, as well as the 100s of other games on the service. Hard to recommend PS+ for the free games alone these days (which is all I had it for), especially since PS Now games can be played online without a Plus subscription.

I’ve enjoyed playing CoD and Star Wars this month, and I’ll definitely play Rise of the Tomb Raider. I’ve also got a backlog of PS+ games I want to play that I feel I’ve already paid for, which is the main reason I’m hanging on to it for now. I’d definitely go for PS Now if I was starting from scratch. That said, I’m paying for Game Pass for my son’s Xbox and that’s becoming an increasingly attractive all in one prospect!

Interesting move from Sony, what do you think their thinking is behind this investment?

That is interesting, such a tiny share too. I'd only guess but maybe it's literally just an investment to make money back from down the line.
