Thanks. That's what I ended up finding out. Seems silly. There's a large amount of unused real estate on the main screen, what with only 8-ish small game icons and then not much else.

I agree. Comment goes for Switch too. I really dislike the horizontal list of games that auto sort by date played.

LOL, so my ISP has a usage cap, but it's so high (1.25TB a month), I've never even come close to going over, so I've completely forgot that we even had a cap.

Enter the PS5, along with me downloading old games, new games, free game - like a fucking kid in a candy store (not to mention my wife being home with baby, working online and streaming her shows), and with 5 days left in the month, we've almost reached our monthly cap!

Luckily, I have Spectrum and don't have a data cap, but I'm sure I would have gone over in January when I got my PS5.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Well finally got around to playing through Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5. Was better than my initial impressions a year or so ago (on PC).

Highly recommend it, especially if you find a $10 PS4 copy somewhere.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Same boat here, Slop. I started with the free PS4 to PS5 upgrades, and got a notice that I used 75% of my data for the month. I'll start March out with some of the PS+ Collection that I haven't played yet.

So, is Ghost of Tsushima: Legends included in this month's Plus lineup supposed to just show up as a Trial? I know it's just DLC, but there's no trophy list or anything?

So are PS5's still next to impossible to find? I don't think I've seen Wario tweet about any new shipments lately.

I had to put Wario on mute because now all his posts are about whether titles are Steam Deck compatible which is of zero interest to me.

They popped up at Target, Amazon, and Walmart over the past two weeks. I still have not been able to get one at retail.

Omg yes! I hate to sound ungrateful but I follow him for deals, not for him to send a tweet for every fucking game in existence verifying if it runs on steam deck.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I've had my PS5 for a little over a month now and I still love it.

As silly as it sounds, it has helped to remind myself to make time for gaming, either through Solo Campaigns or Online with friends.

Last year, I noticed I had only played my PS4 for 61-hours for the entire year. One month with my PS5 and I've already surpassed that.

Definitely worth the extra money I paid for it.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Getting rid of pesky hurdles like load times helped a lot to remind me what I used to love about gaming.

The next State of Play is on Wednesday! The emphasis will be on releases from Japanese publishers.

You can pre-purchase and pre-load GTA V Online (PS5) for free now on your PS5 (with PS Plus). Canít find a website link but itís there on the store on the console.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I’ve been doing some searching online but can’t seem to find a solution to this party chat problem I’ve been having.
My OG headset recently broke and I picked up a piece of garbage from Walmart for around $15. Problem is, it only covers one ear instead of two. I ordered a different set on Amazon for $30 I think. I’ve been using it for a week and people have been complaining about an echo in their headsets of their own voice so I assumed there’s no way it was me. Finally we figured out it was in fact on my end. So I fucked with a bunch of settings (mic volume, etc.) and it didn’t help. Finally I threw it across the room
and plugged in the piece of shit from Walmart and the echo was gone.
The pickle I’m in now is I want to get a new headset, but don’t want to run into the same problem. This happen to anyone else?

That game has got to be compatible with PS VR2, right?

Looks like official system covers are here. Red or black. $55 from Playstation Direct.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I initially thought the overt whiteness would be a distraction with the rest of the home theater gear. Fortunately, it's not terribly obvious where I ended up placing it, so I can save the $55.

"Red"

I will wait until the Galactic Purple one comes out that will match my controller.

I'm still not fond of the white. But for 55 bucks I can live with it.

I couldn't remember what the official name is.

The white grew on me, but I have the matching controller to the one in your picture, and now I kind of want the system to match

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

The white looks better than I thought it would, especially on our TV cabinet, better than all black would, so I'm sticking with white.
But I am getting a black controller though (over time, you can see skin/filth pile up on a white controller).
