I donít know about PS5 in Japan, but if youíre going to Tokyo, try to visit Super Potato in Akihabara. Itís great, three floors of retro games.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Does any body know if every new system (specifically the new Slims) will come with a Gen 3 controller, or are there any Gen 2s still floating around? I just bought a back button attachment kit in prep for when I get a Slim.

I didn't even know there were Gen 2 PS5 controllers, let alone Gen 3. What are the differences?

It's just small improvements in the parts/materials used as far as I know. Certain add-ons only work with certain revisions though.

My console controller is gen 1 apparently. My purple controller is gen 2.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

So, all of a sudden, when I turn my PS5 on the machine makes this very quick, but very noticeable rumble noise. It just happens when first turned on and never any time else. It’s whisper quiet thereafter.

Anyone experience this and know what it is and what to do? Thanks.

Probably just the fan spinning up.

It’s just weird that it would start all of a sudden.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I would say maybe the fan needs cleaning, but didn't you just open it up recently to put in an NVMe drive?

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I did a bit ago, but with me, I’m not sure lightning will strike twice. I’ll do it if it really gets bad. Right now, it’s just a peculiar annoyance.
Thanks.

So, it seems to make same noise whenever I remote download a game. Just this 1/2 sec rumble. But, now the strange part is, I’m not sure it’s coming from machine. I think it might be a storage device in back. I dunno.

So, is the best thing just take cover off and use canned air on the fan?

Huzzah!

Newest update, they finally added the ability for you to update any game in your library, not just one of the few on your home-page.

Took them long enough!

Do you have an external HDD connected? If so, it's probably just that drive spinning up to speed. No applicable if it's a SSD.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Yes, I do have an HDD hooked up as well. I thought it might not be coming from machine bc I couldn’t trace it back, but the HDD is right behind it and I had my suspicions. Thanks!!
Is there anything I can do to make it stop? Because it didn’t always do this.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Put it on something that will absorb the vibration so you don't hear it. Or check to see if one side of it already has rubber feet. Could just be you have it sitting on a side without them.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

So, bit of a situation. For some reason, I have 2 PS accounts. One I didn’t even know about, but must have signed up accidentally with one email. Now, this secondary account is active and I accidentally purchased a game on wrong account. I called PS customer service who was helpful and told me about account sharing, so now new game is with my correct account using this account sharing option.

My question is: how do I get rid of second account so I only have the one and still retain the game in my main account? If that’s even possible.

Sorry if I was confusing, but this whole thing talking to PS rep and stuff was confusing.

I think you were on the phone with the best person to answer that question.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

They aren't going to transfer your game from one account to another so game sharing is all there is. Why do you need to get rid of the second account, you're not going to make the same mistake again, right?

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I have two accounts, but for a different reason.
But yeah, just leave the account as-is on the PS5, and just use your primary account to play everything, including the one game you purchased on the other account.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Ok. Figured it would be something like that. The PS CS didn’t know much but he said I couldn’t merge accounts and if I deleted bad account I lose game. That’s why I asked here. You guys know way more than some CS rep overseas. I’ll just be careful when I purchase next time. Don’t even know how I got 2 accounts. At least I know now. And, knowing is half the battle.

Just play the game on the old account and then switch back to your "good" account. Problem solved. You wont' show the trophies but that's the worst case scenario, right?

He shouldn't even have to do that. He only has to use the other account to download the game. He can play everything on his main account and earn trophies on it (if he cares about that kind of thing).

yes, playing on the other account was an option, but it would have been very cumbersome to keep switching between accounts each time i wanted to play a particular game. but all good now. the account sharing thing worked and no need to keep logging in to other (bad) account.
