I'm seeing $550 & $599.

Guess the discount is over as the promo code DaysofPlay23 shows invalid.

Discount on GT7. No discount on PSVR2, sadly

Same here. Q: If I swap out a 1TB for a 2TB, do I have to delete everything off the old one and then re-downloaded on to the new, or is there a better way?

Moving all the content to an external hard drive, then moving it back would take longer initially, but would be better especially if you have a data cap. Maybe move everything before bed, leaving your PS5 on and disabling auto-shutoff, and then move it back to the new SSD in the morning.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Iíll tell you what, if I donít have to pay an arm and leg at traffic court tomorrow for a speeding ticket I got no joke almost 2 years ago. I thought they just forgot. Iím going to plead statute of limitations. 😜
But, if I donít get killed, Iím getting the 4TB, but I dread the transfer process. I know I can redownload, but Iíd lose my saves on games Iíve played, correct?

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

How do FPS games play on the PS5 vs XBSX? Any radical differences? I’ve yet to play one, but I’m eagerly anticipating. I would have done Immortals Aveum or wherever, but I only have EA on Xbox and 7.00 difference. We’ll see, but I know I love playing FPS on Xbox.

Pretty much the same unless they take advantage of the Dual Sense controller.

You can try Doom Eternal (or Doom) or play Deathloop. Those are top notch FPS for the PS5, and use Dual Sense force feedback, that are free with PS Plus Extra tier.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I did download Eternal, but I think I played and finished twice on Xbox and Deathloop I nearly got to the end, but fell short and have no desire to return. It was fun until I got to the final loop.

If you can find Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War (or whatever itís called) for cheap, I was impressed by its use of the DualSense, and the campaign was up my alley.

Your saves should be in the cloud; just make sure beforehand.
I just pulled the trigger on the 2TB. Checked & only have 300GB left so why not. That price is pretty dang good.
Good luck in traffic court.

Do you subscribe to PS+ (any level)? If so, you should be covered.

All of the saves are on the hard drive that came with the console anyway, aren't they?

You can check your cloud saves under the Saved Data setting. But yeah you shouldn't lose any saves. I didn't when I installed the 1TB and it worked pretty seamlessly.

His point was, regardless of where the game data is stored, all game saves are stored on the main internal hard drive.
