    Cool. This might be one of the shortest threads ever. Time to lock it up?

    I think some PS5 reveal must happen before GDC 16-20 March. During that conference it is difficult to control the unwanted leaks

    Turning point in Roman history? Liquidation of Julius Caesar?

    Seriously, I’ve now started to hold off playing some games like Doom Eternal cause it looks like by October/November I might be able to play them on new hardware. Where. Is. It.

    But if Sony puts up a youtube and other video site links after state of play has run, it will get seen by tons of people. It's not like every press outlet, wont get an email with a press release and then go and link to those videos. Write articles etc etc.
    I bet that there will be links on here to and you will most likely see the "reveal" in less than 24h after state of play. And it will have a 7 page discussion on here about how good/bad it is.

    Word is they’re waiting for MS to reveal their price, so they can adjust. Bit silly if I’m honest.

    Aside: I mean, it's not the best news one could be looking for. I would be hoping that Sony would be leading, not waiting to see what their competitors do - without getting into 4D chess talk that is.

    Being the leaders that they are, they should be designing their next product for their customer base. I'm going to have to look at this type of response with less confidence that they have in their product.

    If they were at E3 this year then they could could announce it there...but they're not...so I'm not sure what they will do.

    If nobody can buy it until november, the details are not that important right now. Seriously it's 10 months away and having an unveiling in feb, march, april, may, makes little difference to gamers.

    It's a business decision. They need at least a few months to create buzz, they also need actual gameplay to show, new games to announce, and they need to express a value proposition which requires a price. They have some advantages in announcing later but they shouldn't push their luck.

    Microsoft should just announce the XBSX price equals the PS5 minus $1.

    Damage Control? They reworded the phrase as it initially said "it will take some time".

    This does not bode well at all...
