Digital Edition is the same as the regular PS5, but without a disc drive and at a considerably lower price point, but you are then locked into digital purchases only.

Will it be backwards compatible with PS4 games?

If not; digital seems the best option.

The "overwhelming majority" of PS4 game discs will work on PS5.

They're also rolling out a "PlayStation Plus Collection", which is essentially a best of the PS4 library, it's presuming this will be included in your standard PS Plus subscription. Having this will grant digital access to:
  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Battlefield 1
  • Bloodborne
  • Days Gone
  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Fallout 4
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • God of War
  • Infamous Second Son
  • Monster Hunter World
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Persona 5
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
  • The Last Guardian
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
  • Until Dawn
Sony are now pursuing a £70 RRP though, so expect to pay a high price for digital games direct from them.

I have too many ps4 discs to go digital, which is a shame because in the last 2 years all my purchases but RDR2 have been digital in Playstation sales, so I expect I'd mainly do the same for PS5, because f*** paying $70 for a game.

Forgot about the pre-orders so missed that.

Logged into John Lewis this morning about 8:02 and was behind about 100,000+ in the queue.
Refreshed the Currys page and was in a pretty similar position.

12pm and I refreshed the Amazon listing for the PS5. It showed me a picture of a lovely dog instead. Refresh after refresh - dog after dog.
