They are (eventually) getting my money. It's very fortunate there is a way around this super bullshit price gouge for a disc drive. Money is just money. But hey, they want to overcharge for a disc drive?

I mean the other way to look at it is that they priced the PS5 the same as the Xbox, and gave a far more than justified 100 dollar discount for removing the disk drive, eating way into their profit (loss) margin on the console.

That's not how it FEELS. It feels like they are charging 100 bucks for an optical drive.
