Would you not run out of space on the digital one after a while and need to delete games though?

This will be an issue especially with the size of some of the new games. Biggest factor is you can only purchase the game from 1 place e.g. PlayStation store, they will know this so prices will most likely stay high for popular games. Also anyone that has stacks of ps4 games on disk won't be able to play them on the ps5

 At least with the disk console you have the chance to pick up preowned games for cheaper

Ultimately having the digital console will probably cost you more in the long run between games and possibly having to purchase external memory for it

Yeah exactly. Good to have the option I suppose but really if you can stretch to pay the extra 100 it will work out a lot better in the long run.

digital edition for me, can’t remember the last time I bought a disc game and I’d prob get around 10 new games a year, always good deals on the store but with the new games they will be full price, but find that they are almost everywhere when they’re first out. You can buy a 1TB external hard drive for the PS4 for under €100 and presume the ps5 will also support this.

Personally I think the digital version is a rip off. £110 extra than the Xbox counterpart and the games on the PS store are typically priced at £59.99, it adds up quick.

People in the UK can get around having to own games by subscribing to Boomerang which is effectively an Online Blockbusters but with no disc tray it becomes a non-option also

The processor etc in ps5 digital edition is a lot better than its xbox counterpart. Really the ps5 digital console is the exact same thing as the ps5 just without the disk tray

Had to put my nerd hat on for this to see where the true value actually lies

Series X is actually 0.1 GHz faster but Series S is 0.1 GHz slower.

Graphics is also the same but PS5 is running at 2.2 GHz, Series X at 1.8GHz with S at 1.5 GHz.
Only difference in memory speed is the S is running 10gb where the 2 superior models are running 16gb

So to summarise it all 3 models are using the exact same parts but at different speeds

I still think the Xbox Series S is absolutely insane value for money, a PC desktop equivalent will cost you around £700 and don't forget Microsoft have exclusivity on EA access.

That Series X is roughly 4 times less powerful then the main xbox and PS5. it doesn't do 4k and is only 4TF. It's harddrive is only a paltry 500gb and at least 100GB of that will be reserved for the OS.

You can check out game price histories on PSprices.Com and while games launch at full price they are reduced very fast particularly by Sony. God of war was just €20 6 months after launch for example. There are regular sales on the store making digital a good option.

If you've not pre ordered by now in most countries you probably won't get one before Christmas.

I'm gonna assume you meant the S series so I've edited that bit for ya 

But it has a 1TB SSD slot in the back, which will only cost you around €70. Thumbs Up

Let's be honest here, looking at my comparison if you want the absolute best available you're gonna buy a PS5, if you just want to buy a console to play some EA titles or some other fashionable title, you're mugging yourself not buying an S.

The X series sits in somewhere of the mindset of I'm religiously an Xbox fan and I'm gonna buy all the top AAA titles.

PS Store isn't the only place you can buy games for the digital edition. You can buy codes from other retailers online and them redeem the code in the PS store to download the game.

Disk space will be a massive issue on all three, latest COD was close to 150GB and needed additional capacity for installing patches when they were released, we'll all end up buying the expansion cards or external hdd's.

Series S is good value for what you get but to suggest it's anything near the power of PS5 or Series X purely based on CPU clock speed or installed RAM is incorrect. If you have to do a comparison it's the GPU which sets the Series X and PS5 apart from the Series S and even then there's far more to it.

Will you be able to play PS4 games on it? That's a definite improvement

Some serious underestimating how powerful the S series is, it'd outperform a PC desktop equivalent worth about £900, for only £250. That's crazy no matter how it's spun.

It's like comparing a Ferrari (PS5) to a McClaren (X series) to an Aston Martin (S series) and then you have the Mazda, which is the PC gamers, it's good, it looks great but it's nowhere near the other 3

I then saw an argument where the S series runs upto only 4k resolution whereas the other 2 can run upto 8k resolution..  Well 8k resolution television's currently cost £3000 so that argument isn't going to be relevant anytime soon is it
