    PS5 compared to a PS4
    My Brain: The PS5 is bigger.

    PS5 compared to a cat
    Wow, the PS5 seems pretty big. Cute cat.

    PS5 compared to a banana
    Heh, odd comparison. Still not exactly sure how big the PS5 is.

    PS5 compared to a cat in a box
    The PS5 is 15" x 10" x 4" (or 6" in a stand).

    As for the PS5 retail box ... it doesn't seem to have "1TB!!!!!" in big letters anywhere.

    Here's a gallery: https://www.ign.com/articles/check-o...n-5-retail-box

    If you click through to photo 12, you'll see the back ...

    ... which clearly says "825GB."
    Ah well I'm completely wrong then. Don't mind me

    And yes, the system is HUGE

    The difference is you're not buying the Lays bag as a bag. You're buying what's inside.

    Hard drives are empty containers. They are sold and marketed like empty containers, sorta the way other empty containers are sold and marketed: trash bags, drinking glasses, luggage, cardboard boxes, etc.

    When you go to the grocery store and see 10 gallon Hefty bags for sale, you don't think, "What bullshit! it's not 10 gallons after I stuff it with garbage!"
    You seem to underestimate how much bodily fluid I can fit into a Hefty bag.

    At the risk of setting the conversation back to square one, the PS5 does not have a 1 TB hard drive; the advertised 825 GB is in fact the actual size, and as per meg's concerns the total usage space (not advertised) is 667.2 GB. Sony chose an atypical hard drive size because of the custom SSD solution for the console; in order to maximize efficiency and achieve the console's groundbreaking speeds, they chose a size that would perfectly match the design specs of their 12-channel, 512 GiB NAND flash interface (512 x 12 = 6,144 Gib = 768 GiB = 824.633720832‬ GB).

    Honestly it seems like Series X is really the better of the two consoles.

    I chose PS5 because it had something to play at launch. But I will definitely be getting a Series X at some point point thr road, and I expect it will get a lot more play time.

    The director of 2013's Frankenstein's Army is pretty miffed at Resident Evil 8, saying it blatantly copied an original monster design from his movie.

    And looking at the comparison...I gotta say I agree with him. I'd be pissed too.

    Image in spoiler tags, just in case...

    That's a replica for sure. Can you copyright character designs though?

    Not sure. But I don't think he's pursuing legal action. Just peeved.

    I'm not. Still hoping to get one by fall 2021. Returnal, Demons Souls, Cyberpunk, probably something else I'm forgetting...

    That'd be cool, but the game is so damned big you risk becoming a Skyrim streamer.

    OTOH, it would be nice to watch someone play who doesn't suck. (Most of the YouTubers I've watched are surprisingly bad at the game).

    Can't say I'd be any good since I've never played any Elder Scrolls game before, except a tad of ESOnline. Unless it plays like Fallout?

    But yeh, it's such a big undertaking I might need to have a special night for Skyrim.
