Dude, that's saying that being gay is a bad thing. You're being homophobic right there.

You are all supportive of homophobic behaviour. Not cool.


And you using the word "Dunce" in your forum title is using a slur for someone with a mental disability who is slow to understand,.

That's supportive of ableism and oppresses people with a mental disability to appear funny on a forum...

Seems a rather silly argument. Informal settlement residents are hardly the demographic for these consoles. So your colleague is forced to buy the 12k console then? What's a 2k difference in context though anyway. If his only data option is mobile data I'm sure the PS5 is not exactly high up on his priority list of things to absolutely have surely?
Possibly not the main demographic but you'll be surprised at the positive money situations in a seemingly unlikely place... the reason some people still live in Alex is because of families owning the houses there (not the shacks) and are tied to family and therefore the houses that they own.

Okay.
I'm not going to lie - I couldn't care less about your colleagues predicament and I'm almost sure neither could Sony. The minuscule amount of sales from that demographic isn't even a blip on the radar. If he/she has a "positive money situation", and if buying a new gen console is a must have, then it's an easily solved 'non issue'.

If they didn't care then why is there a configuration option with a disc drive? Maybe to reach people that don't have the means to download 100gb games... How is the non issue easily solved? Oh right, ask Vuma to install fibre to my house and job done.

So you’re saying “what about...”?

I was given that title by a forum admin because I never learn.

Don't spend R10 000 on a 800 GB Diskless console, is jy jags? Get a grip.

Thank you.
Quite a good point because at the rate that today's games are going at we will see multiple 100GB+ games come out a year. This will mean you will be very limited in the number of games that you can have 'ready to play'. Although the disc versions of games nowadays also have huge updates. External SSD's might be the only option is about 2-3 years

It's not to reach people that don't have a means to download. Most games on disk still require oodles of data to update anyways so that doesn't stick.

It's for people that want to collect disc's, games etc. It's also a way of testing the waters and seeing what the sales will actually look like in comparison. People like nostalgia so might just want the disc for that, discless is for those who never buy physical and have everything online.

Don't be a doos. How about, hear me out, letting people do with their money as they wish?

Just cause 10k is a lot of money to you, does not mean others can afford to spend their money on a 10k console. 🤷‍♀️

Also, I came for only fans and found sony fans.

Is this local market really ready for discless consoles? I know almost everyone here probably has uncapped, but little Timmy on the street probably doesn't.
I don't think you have the required experience nor the capacity to concern yourself with the local market.

Why is everyone these days so offended about things, and things that don't even apply to them. *insert image oh-my-god-who-the-hell-cares-meme.jpg*

It's a 'creative outlet' for the cave dwellers and trolls. Let them vent. 🐔

The little Timmy should be conscious of his purchase and make a decision whether it would be wise to have it.

You cant limit the local industry based on little Timmy.
That's like saying lets remove all sports cars from showrooms, all mansions and heck even the 3090 because this is not in little Timmy's budget.

See the difference between this and Phony Gheystation is that I know Panda's comments on the forum and he's cool. He's also being ironic in many ways (I love irony).

Phony Gheystation is just a lazy insult of a console that really isn't imaginative, has been used before and is just a negative association of being gay.

I'm not a snowflake. I'm just a flake.

I'm not sure if you have been following the internet lately but in a nutshell. It is now trendy to be a victim..

I don't think the residents of ZApacman's street are concerned with anything showroom related, mansions or current gen GPUs. Little Timmy probably still rocking a PS3 and a Vita. :ROFLMAO:

I just love how people get upset about something they have no apparent interest in. Yet they know more about the machine than majority of potential buyers.

Phony Gheystation also expired in 2000. Time for the haters to get something new.

The best is when some okes put their PC on their desk with all the colours on full tilt. It makes their dildo collection on the opposite wall look so colourful.
I know right... Especially my glass collection, the light just shines so beautifully through them.
It's absolutely amazing
