PS5

I have the exact problem, it was a bold move from Sony to go for white.

Lots of home cinema set ups are usually dark tones!

I guess they saw it as a profit opportunity. Release faceplates or a new console at a later date. I don’t think they anticipated other company’s manufacturing plates legally.

The fact that they’re so easy to remove makes me think they’ll be releasing different colour plates in the future.

They knew people would flock to buy the PS5 even if it was pink and shaped like a unicorn lol. They were right.

Funnily enough I do actually have a white PS4... but it's hidden in a drawer anyway so doesn't really matter.

i saw a video yesterday, the are redoing The Last of Us for the PS5. How many versions do they need like. the original, remastered, digital edtion and this new one for the PS5. I wonder if it'll be a free download, fingers crossed it is, if it's not i'll wait. Been keeping an eye out on the TLOU part 2 as it's on offer on the PSN store but at £40 for the digital i'll still wait till it come down a bit more

Storage Expansion and Management

  • Store PS5 Games on Compatible External USB Drives.* With this feature, you can now transfer your PS5 games to USB extended storage from your console’s internal storage. It’s a great way to extend the storage capabilities of your PS5 console, and you can seamlessly copy your PS5 games back to the console’s internal storage when you’re ready to play. It is faster to reinstall PS5 games from USB extended storage than to re-download or copy them from a disc.
Eng-Move-to-USB-Extended-Storage.jpg

  • Because PS5 games are designed to take advantage of the console’s ultra high-speed SSD, PS5 titles can’t be played from USB extended storage. PS5 titles also cannot be directly downloaded to USB extended storage. However, games that you transfer or copy back to internal storage will automatically update when applicable. In addition, you can select which game modes you want to install (such as campaign or multiplayer) for select titles that support the option.
  • For tips on using USB extended storage on PS5, including storage device requirements, please visit: https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/hardware/ps5-extended-storage/.
As previously announced, the PS5 console will support storage expansion via M.2 drives in the future. We’re currently working on this feature and will keep you posted with any updates on PlayStation Blog.

New Social Features for PS4 and PS5 Consoles

  • Cross-generation Share Play. PS4 and PS5 players can now Share Play together while chatting in parties. This means PS5 console users can let their friends on PS4 consoles view their game screen, or even try out the PS5 games through Share Play, and vice versa. Options include the ability to share your screen with a friend, pass your controller virtually to a friend, or pass a second controller virtually to play co-op games together.

  • Request to Join Game Session. A selection of your friends’ joinable game sessions will now appear on both PS5 and PS4 consoles, allowing for more gameplay opportunities together. The “Request to Join” option also serves as a shortcut to sending a game invite, reducing the time it takes for you to get into games with friends. Through the Privacy Settings menu, you can modify who can interact with you through parties, games and messages.

Enhanced Control and Personalization Options for PS5 Consoles

  • Improved Game Base. The Game Base menu has been improved for quicker access to important content and features. You can now easily switch between Parties and Friends to start chatting with your existing parties or see what each of your online friends is up to. In addition, you can turn notifications on or off for each of the parties you’re in.

  • Disable Game Chat or Adjust Players’ Volume. You can now quickly disable in-game chat, which turns off your mic audio and the voice audio of other players. Additionally, you can easily adjust the individual voice chat volume of other players in the same chat so you don’t have to ask your friends to lower or increase their mic volume each time.
  • Game Update Pre-download. Once it’s enabled by developers, title updates for games will pre-download to your console if the “automatic updates” setting is enabled and your console is on or in rest mode. This will let you start playing the latest version of a game immediately after the update’s release.
  • Customize Game Library. With the ability to search your library or hide games from view, it’s now easier to find content and personalize your view of your game library.
  • Screen Zoom. You can now adjust the magnification of the screen to suit your preference from the Settings menu.
  • New Trophy Settings and Stats Screen. The level of trophies that results in automatic capture of a screenshot or video clip can now be customized — so you can now choose to only capture and save images/videos of moments when you earn higher-grade trophies, like Gold or Platinum. We’re also introducing a new player Trophy Stats screen, where you can check out the summary of your trophy level and status at a glance.

New Features for PlayStation App

We’re also introducing a myriad of new features for PlayStation App to make it easier than ever to connect with your console experience remotely. Recently, we introduced the ability to save products in a wishlist, get notifications when your friends are online, and change your console online status. In the coming weeks, we’ll be rolling out even more, including the ability to join a multiplayer session on PS5 from the app, manage your PS5 console storage, compare trophy collections with friends, and sort and filter products shown in the PlayStation Store. You can download PlayStation App for free from Google Play and the App Store.

We’re only scratching the surface of the many updates and improvements we’ve made across PS5, PS4, and PS App, so check them out and let us know what you think!

Sad face still for the M.2 SSd slot not being activated yet. There are a few options now that will match the internal SSD speeds.

I had this on day 1 and 2 after launch. Only happened a couple of times. I just figured they'd sorted it through a firmware update.

Your pad will be flat - it happened to me. I then realised i always had the pad unplugged when i had the PS5 on,so it never really charged.

My controller faulty after just under 2 months. Getting joystick drift when trying to aim down the sites playing warzone.

Pretty bad!

Horizon Zero Dawn will be available Free from the 20th April to do with Stay At Home. I've never played it before and will look forward to play it.

I've took the plunge and ordered the Samsung T7 1TB External SSD 3.2 Gen 2 1050 mbps from Amazon, arriving tomorrow. That will do me for the time being.

Yep there's nothing worth having one for at the moment. Horizon Forbidden West may change that for me, or as my TV is old as f**k maybe I'll just buy the ps4 version and save many £££'s😂.

Started on one of these drop announcement accounts on Twitter the other day. I won a code to buy one, but they're all f**king massive bundles I don't want. I was never bothered about getting one, but now I've got the new TV etc. I am ready. Beginning to annoy me a bit!

Game have a bunch of bundle deals and console pre-orders all for next week, I assume they've secured a big shipment of consoles to cover all the products and orders?

Been in the Game queue so many times... get to the end, sold out. I once got in so quick after a drop I only had to wait one minute.

Yeah game are weird. I managed to get in the queue before Twitter blew up. Took 4 mins. Got a bundle in my cart and tried to proceed to payment and the session crashed. Fast forward a day and when using my mac I noticed the safari session was still open and on the crash notification. Just by chance I refreshed and boom, straight to the payment prompt. What I don’t get is they’d sold out a day earlier yet I was still able to buy and receive within 4 working days…Does that mean a console is secured against your session if you manage to add one to cart even if you don’t pay?

This was back in March.

Earlier in the week I woke up about 03:30 needing a piss and as I got back into the bedroom saw the phone light up. Tapped it and it said PS5 in stock at Argos! Thought yes this is the one! Who else is awake at this time... however straight away out of stock. Refreshed 10 times and never came into stock. Couldn't be bothered wasting my time carrying on forever so went back to sleep.

Woke in the morning and looked at the Twitter comments, from about 30 people. It would seem about 50% of those did get hold of one in the end. Oh well; bring on 2022 🤯

Managed to get a PS5 off Amazon this week. Not played it yet but took it out the box; actually not as horrendously big or ugly as I thought to be honest.

Definitely Rachet & Crank interests me the most; I'm bored of big serious games and just killing people all the time.

Realistically probably won't be playing it for a month or two yet. Anything good in the pipeline? Not really been following the PS5 stuff since I thought it'd be impossible to get one!
