          Regardless, Sony still has the costs to manufacture and sell that system, someone has to pay for it. They sell consoles at a loss at the start with a hope to recoup the costs through software sales. Same for each console generation, though Nintendo sell hardware at a profit. So we are probably paying a fair price for the hardware.

          And what about being cheap than a standalone graphic card? What is your argument?

          •  

            @Dienk: Video rendering, AI, etc.

            and you get synergy, instead of getting a console, and spent less on a pc, you can build a beast pc for the same cost that fits both purposes

          Given you would spend that much on a graphics card alone, if you were into playing games, it would be cheaper to get the PS4 and a cheap PC

          Yeah, but I've pumped big dollars into building gaming PCs. This is excellent value if that's your primary use.

          If all you want is a word processor/internet browser then there's a whole market of $400 laptops.

          Very often.

            @Mistredo: well then, should've bought a console instead

            •  

              @ln28909: It's not that simple. A lot of games are not even available on consoles. E.g., strategy games are non-existent. Also, a high-end gaming computer will give you much better graphics and performance than a console. E.g., Playstation 5 has 10.28 TFLOPS. NVIDIA 3080 got 29.7 TFLOPS, and if you got a lot of money, you could get 3090 with 35.6 TFLOPS.

              Playing on a console is like buying Toyota Corolla. It is cheap and good. Building a high-end PC for gaming is like buying Porsche.

              •  

                @Mistredo: Okay interesting, yeah personally I don't think I would buy a console ever

              •  

                @Mistredo: Except without console, you wouldn't have the AAA games we have today. PC Market can not float the cost of game development alone. They wouldn't and that's fact! This is why majority of games are developed and optimised for console first, because that's where the money is. CDPR even stated without console they would never of been able to afford to develop Witcher 3 and continue.

                Also piracy is still huge and very much alive in the PC Gaming world. Everything has it's place so I wouldn't be shitting on consoles. They are the only reason why your getting advanced graphics cards to run the games that you would not have had otherwise.

                •  

                  @Justin9mm: That's hard to say. If we players didn't play on consoles, they would play on something else, so it is true most money for AAA titles come from consoles, it does not mean we wouldn't have AAA titles without consoles.

                  Nevertheless, my original argument was a high-end gaming PC offers better graphics and performance than a console. I was never disputing the importance of consoles.

      Trade in old PS4 pro, and after cashback and voucher it will cost like $300.

      Nah, before Xbox Series X pricing was revealed people were assuming an Aussie RRP of $899 or $999 based upon the rumoured USD 599 launch price.

      AUD was at over 90c USD when the PS4 was released so it's naturally going to seem like a bit of a jump in comparison.

    • -1 vote

      The cost is $499 USD converted plus a little extra for Australian Government taxes etc. Sony at $499 USD are already selling it at virtually cost price. Do you have any idea in what's involved in a business or manufacture?

      There is no way you could get anything close to this tech for this cost if you tried to do it yourself. The price is actually very good. Everyone wants something for nothing. How do you expect companies to advance and thrive if they sold you something for less than what it costs them? You need a reality check.

          Yep, i've pre ordered already and nothing has been taken out yet

          •  

            @Raceking23: Ok thanks

            So when it gets released that’s when you weekly payments start?

            •  

              @Twisty: ZipPay or ZipMoney? The former is every 2 or 4 weeks.

  •  

    With the $50 cashback is that $50 off the price of the PS5 or $50 to spend on other stuff via Zip?

    • +1 vote

      I think it’s $50 back on your zip pay account. So you pay amazon the full amount and then zip pay credit $50 on your account

      Correct me if I’m wrong anyone

    •  

      After two clicks:

      Shop for your PlayStation 5 console on amazon.com.au or the Amazon mobile app (AU marketplace) using your Zip (Zip Pay or Zip Money) account (“Zip Account”) to get $50 AUD credit back to your Zip Account (“Offer”).

            @OfTheOverflow: whas more for Bonbi :) I thought the fact of paying with ZIP (if you dont fail the payments) will improve your credit report

        •  

          It does to some degree. Lots of credit checks in a short span of time will demolish your rating (think 5 checks in 3 months). One check a year is negligible and may not even influence your rating.

        • +2 votes

          It does if you intend to apply for a loan or home loan or similar, I had a nightmare earlier this year convincing banks I had closed my zip pay account (letters, statements, transactions etc.), and I hardly even used the zip account to start with.

          • +1 vote

            @noeljp: This is sad, I do not have credit cards, and apparently that was bad, as i did not had credit history. So open Zip to have some history, not because i really like it. Will go for a loan in a year or so, so will keep this in mind.

            Btw, the check is when the account is created (source: https://www.finder.com.au/afterpay-credit-score)

    • +2 votes

      Yes it will be an enquiry on your credit file, some banks consider ZIP PAY as payday lending and is a big red flag

        Thanks for the advice, think I'll just play it safe.

    I pre-ordered with JB but I'm worried about how they're handling the deposit stuff and not guaranteeing one at release. I got an extra order in with Amazon just in case; no commitment and easy to cancel whenever I like.

    • +1 vote

      The question you should be asking is how you would be able to split a payment with Zip pay?

    •  

      do you mean claimed against a zippay discount? if so no

    •  

      I was curious about this too. Has anyone had any experience with price protection with BNPL?

      I know with afterpay, you can pay the full amount early. But even if this happens, you're technically paying "zippay" on the cc statement, whereas the item was purchased from "amazon". I don't think they will honor that (they'll find any reason to not honor… Like a different colour…) so I'm considering foregoing the $50 discount in hopes for a larger discount later next year.

      • +1 vote

        I think it's a non issue as you can't fund your afterpay or Zippay repayments from a credit card, only a debit card.

        •  

          Oh. Had no idea. Simple choice then. I'm going to pay with my 28 degrees and hope there's a price drop of at least $50 in the next year. Thanks for the info.

    • +30 votes

      You've gotta be mad to buy the digital version - once you've bought 6 or 7 games at the inflated price on the Playstation Store you'll have already nullified the discount on the console.

      • +1 vote

        My quick mafs has the disc version paying for itself after three games, factoring in reduced price for physical games bought on launch day via Amazon, and traded in within a year.

        •  

          I haven't paid close attention to what retailers have been putting on games prices - but is there seriously a $50 difference? $150 between the consoles…

          •  

            @Hinee: I was guestimating a $30 difference in price between physical and digital, and $30 trade in value for a AAA game traded in within 12 months of launch.

            As I said… "quick mafs".

          • +1 vote

            @Hinee: Yup, in my experience retailers usually sell cheaper than digital.

            And If you have a price protection on your credit card, you could end up profiting from new games. Eg: I bought the God of War game for around $55 when it was quite new, sold it for $40 when I was done, and claimed $40ish price protection when its retails price reached under $15. So (-55+40+40) = $25 profit

              @0FoxGiven: Omg of course, I completely forgot about price protection!

              I think NFS: Heat ended up costing me $9 after trade in and multiple PP claims.

        Everyone's allowed their own preferences. I don't buy discs, I'm saving $150. That's $150 I'll never get back.

    Amazon can be a bit risky if you are wanting a day of release delivery. I have now had 3 preordered games not turn up on release date.
