I canít wait though but now thatís itís set up, I can fucking breathe. Phew!
You should play a little bit of Astro's Playroom to get acclimated to the controller.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Oh yeah. Forgot about that. Ok. But does it really take a lot? I was using it just fine, almost like Xbox controller just before. Didn’t seem too different, but there is a difference. I’ll play a little Astro and then have GoW kick my lily white ass.

Astro's Playroom is just a good introduction to the PS5 system and controller.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Is it like a series of mini games? Or like a training type game, kinda like Sports Kinect for the One with Kinect?

It's a cute fun platformer. Short but sweet.

Sounds good. I’ll play a bit as I’m dying to play God of War. Heard so many great things.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Damn, had no idea this has built in voice command. That’s awesome. I was able to use Alexa with Xbox to turn on, off, play a game, but it wouldn’t recognize PS5. Friend told supposed to not work but I read online it does work. I dunno, but the fact I can turn on and off with voice is awesome. Xbox can’t do that.

edit…I guess you can’t turn on. But everything else. I thought since I’m in rest mode I could turn on using voice. Bummer.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Any other PS exclusives I should look into? In the vein of all the ones already mentioned.

You should be good for awhile if you play both God of Wars, Spiderman and Miles Morales, both Horizons, four Uncharted games both Ratchet and Clank games, and Ghosts of Tsushima. I really liked Days Gone and highly recommend it. It's free on the PlayStation Plus collection. Also Shadow of the Colossus and Until Dawn.

Oldboy, get the Demon Souls remake. You will love it and breeze through it.
Ha. I know you're joking but can you imagine how quickly the Demon Souls thread would shoot up in the recent posts list? And you'd better be there to answer all the questions, T-bone22...

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

So PS4 games work better/faster when on the SSD vs. the HDD, is that correct?

They load faster. I don't know if they "work better".

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I guess work better wss poor choice of words. I just meant load times are quicker vs on HDD. Glad I got the extra 1TB. I only have 200GB left on console. 😂

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I could move them to HDD until I play, but that’s a pain. And do you really have to keep PS5 on when moving a game? I know I can do remote downloads when it’s not on, but why does it say when I moved a game, don’t unplug hard drive or turn off PS5? Xbox let you turn off when doing anything with storage.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

You need the whole system on and can't do anything else with the console when moving content back and forth. It sucks.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Really? You can’t even play a game? That’s fucking stupid. Can you not play a game if you’re currently downloading a game?

it's no different than on PC when say DL an update, file, some system or Windows software...if you shutdown in the middle it can corrupt and make the software or even hardware in-operable.

As to moving games, it's not really that bad and goes pretty fast...just keep in mind; PS5 Games are made with the system and hardware in mind to take full advantage of the load times so they have to "Be Played On SSD"...but can be stored on External Drive. Whereas PS4 Games can be played on SSD or External.. the bottleneck is the USB data flow which is way slower than the SSD so it would be like Super Lag Central .You'll get faster load times, cut-scenes and such...the PS5 Hardware will enhance the game and several PS4 games do look darn good but still not like the PS5 Versions that's made with PS5 Hardware in mind.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I gotcha. That’s similar to Xbox, but that not shutting off while game moving or not being able to play a game was something I guess I took for granted with Xbox.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Is there a way to organize or put in order my downloaded games on the Home Screen?
