↑In the picture above, the storage size of the PS5 Digital Edition is TBA. It turned out it has the same SSD to the normal edition.

 

When it comes to game console release announcements, I always remember ↑this video, lol

 

 


I checked the PS5 current reserving price on the US amazon, Canadian amazon, and the Japanese amazon. The US and Canadian amazons were just unavailable since it’s already sold out, but on the Japanese amazon, you can resell PS5! The price is now around 35万円 (3345 usd).
※UPDATE: The price went over 5000 usd in the end, and the Japanese amazon finally removed all the resellers, lol.

 

 


A Japanese consumer electronics manufacturer has apologized for selling a shredder with a name and design similar to the PS5, which will cut off any PS5 discs you put in it. P(aper)S(hredder)(ver)5

 
 
Actually, there seems to be various memes for both next-gen consoles! ^^;

In the next-gen, PS5 and XSX both can load really fast!
