    Fair point. Although I'm 99% sure R&C is. I guess it's more "first wave" than "launch".

    Yo the ratchet and clank remake on the PS4 was one of the most fun games I played this generation. Graphics were outstanding and the game was fun as hell. But this new one looks like a legit movie. What the f--k. I can’t wait to play it.

    Definitely hope it's first wave but sony has lied before when promoting a new console. Remember launch game driveclub for the ps4... Didn't even hit 2nd wave

    Yeah that was messed up. Sony (playstation division) are good at learning from their mistakes though.

    Hope so. I'm always rooting for them. Been a Sony guy since PS1 so I've seen the downs (literally) . But depending on what Xbox does next week I might get myself both consoles in the end. My money's good this year despite Corona.

    I just want the cloud project on both xbox and Ps5. The ability to play a game instantly, like Netflix but video games.

    So what's everyone's thoughts on price?

    I think it'll be disk version @ 499 and digital version @ 449. I'd go with the disk version because it's always good to pick some cheap stuff from Amazon every now and again but tend to live 90% digital. I'd consider going digital only if it was 100 cheaper.

    Definitely feel like they got to go cheaper with the digital version to have people consider picking one up. 399 is probably the sweet spot.

    I just can't imagine a console with this much power selling for 399 at launch. If there's 100 gap then I'm sure the disk version will be pushed up. Maybe 449 and 549. But I'm still going with my original prediction.

    You're probably right. Just talking about public perception whom are not so knowledgeable about the hardware inside. Especially with Xbox looking for a way to undercut the price with their own digital version

    I'll prob skip buying for 6 months tbh. Bought PS3 on launch night and was thoroughly disappointed. Waited 6 months for PS4 and never looked back.

    Although if I was to buy at launch and these are actually released at launch I'll prob jump into R&C and GT7.

    Nice! Yea it’s a really fun game. I never played an R&C game so when they remade this one for the PS4 I grabbed not knowing what to expect. I loved every second of it. It’s no a hard game at all and while my preference is to play challenging games, this one was such a joy to play. I’m pumped for the next one.

    Agreed. It's the only "childish" game I play. Word of warning though, if you skip the PS3 games and dive straight into Rift Apart there's a very strong chance you won't have a clue what the hell is going on!
