Also don't forget Last Of Us. They just released a remake of Part 1. One of the best games. Part 2 is great as well

I'm not in the market for an external drive but this GOW branded one is damn sexy. $109 at BB.

I think I played the first when my tv was able to play PlayStation games. I remember all stealth and very hard. It was not my ideal horror game.

Wait for a sale. It's overpriced at $70 and will almost certainly be on sale Black Friday or New Years

As Decker said, wait till sale which Sony has a pretty good one around Black Friday.....I'm sort of surprised they haven't had a LoU 1 & 2 Set offer...like you see with Assassin Creed Games. There will be a lot of good offers and deals in the next week or two so hang on....

You get the PS4 version for free as part of the PlayStation Plus collection if you want to try it out before buying the new PS5 version.

TBH there is zero reason to buy the remaster. The PS4 version looks very good and you don't even have a 4k TV.

On your PS5 there's a tab for PS Plus. It's a section under there. You can't grab it from a website. Has to be on the PS5

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Are those console covers worth it to change color from white?

I ask bc all my components are matte black. I’m not sure if I care that this will stick out or they should all be same color.

They have on Amazon for like $35.

Anyone get one of these covers just to change color or am I being insane?

And yes, I do have self-diagnosed OCD.

I can just imagine what Ragnarok looks like compared to this. I’m pretty sure GoW (2018) is going to be my first played. Pretty sure. Now, I have GoW on both systems.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Can I install SSD prior to even turning on PS5 for first time? I thought I could but I heard something about must have software update. Will it not work if I pre-install?

I wouldn't. I would set it up and install all the latest updates before.

Yeah, I would 100% make sure that your PS5 works before I stuck a second SSD in there.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

It took me three consoles before I got a PS5 that worked well.

thanks to all for depleting my bank account. 😜

but seriously, made the decision very easy and I appreciate, truly, all the posts.

Really looking forward to these exclusives, which to me, seems much more abundant on PS5 than XBOX. And what comes from XBOX isnít nearly as highly rated as most of PS5 exclusive franchises.

so, I have Rift Apart to start I think or maybe 2018 GoW, but already building a nice library. Rift Apart, Spider-Man and Miles Morales. Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy, both Horizons, and Detroit: Become Human, which I just remember that I thought it looked cool if Iím remembering correctly.

Any other exclusives in the above vein I should look out for? I know many like Ghosts of Tushima sp? but Iím not into the soulsbourne games.
Nathan Drake Collection is early games and Legacy of Thieves is later ones. You really want to play those in order.

Iíve played both Spider-Mans, all the Uncharteds, both Horizons, and Detroit, and enjoyed them all.

Ghost of Tsushima is also great. I havenít played the soulsborne stuff, but as mentioned in the other thread, itís pretty much an Assassinís Creed game.

For the record, I havenít needed any supplemental storage yet, and Iím not aggressive about deleting games. But I tend to play only the big ones so I donít have a ton of stuff hanging around on my hard drive,

I don't think anyone else had the same issues.

Due to a light year on games, I played through Last of Us and Uncharted 4 (PS4 versions) for the first time on the PS5. They both still look amazing.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Should be getting this tomorrow. Nice turnaround time considering I ordered late Friday.

Iím starting to get excited and tense. The hdmi switchís micro usb is too short as is the hdmi cable it comes with. But, I rectified that right quick by getting longer cables. Didnít realize the cables were so cheap. Glad though as wallet is in intensive care after the weekend it had.

Still, should be fun to play those exclusives. They all seem really amazing in so many varied and creative ways. And they are so highly rated. Xbox definitely doesnít have the exclusives Sony has. But, I do like the features of the new Xbox and easy interface.

Howís PlayStationís interface? Easy to follow?

Most people seem to not like the interface. I think it's fine. Be prepared to charge your controller every 5-8 hours.
