I think folders would be your only option.

Engadget didn't like the Portal much at all and the reviewer had connectivity issues with it.

I have made folders for different genres, but that doesnít clear off the top. It annoys the fuck out of me. That and you canít do anything when a game is moving from one storage device to another. Xbox might be the inferior box, but they make the home page much more user friendly.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Who cares if there are a few tiles for the most recent or most recently updated games? If you don't like it, just launch the games you want to see and they will be there instead.

Obviously it matters to him and others.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Well my solution (launching your preferred games, no matter how briefly) would work for those who don't like the currently displayed titles, right?

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I wish they had dynamic themes like the PS4 did because those were awesome and much more visually appealing than what we get with the PS5 (the XSX has started with baby steps in that area now at least), but I do kind of like the Most Recent tile thing because you can bounce between your most recently played games (usually) and it's just a bit more convenient if you're frequently playing a few games at once.

Three new colors just came out. They are deeply rich in color(compared to the previous colors) have a metallic look to them. It's a nice subtle metallic and not overbearing. I already have the Cobalt and it's damn sexy. I also have a Volcanic Red arriving tomorrow. Cosmic Red was a disappointment so I'm looking forward to this one.

They are $50 on Amazon, Target, BB, etc. right now (along with all the other colors).

Do you have Amazon link? I can’t find them anywhere on the site. I’m looking for the metallic grey one.

I think that's the "Sterling Silver" one. That one is $74.99 at Amazon/Target/BB (not on sale like the other 2) and shows as a pre-order for January.

Egads, that’s quite a price difference. I mean I bought, but still…

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

It's cool, but to buy a $75 controller when literally every other color is $50 takes stones.

Keeping me from buying another controller : I still haven't even opened my God of War Ragnarok Limited Edition one yet.

And especially when this stunner of a controller was just available for the low, low price of $39.99!

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I seriously have a hard time believing that there were people who thought it was worth $10 to get that controller rather than one in a color they actually liked. That thing looks like the walls of a sketchy subway station.

That one should be 20. People bought that mainly as a collector's item and not because they actual think it looks cool, right?

Do the newer controllers have better battery life or are improved in any way from the original? (I bought a purple controller last year that I haven't opened yet and am eager to justify buying another because I like the color)

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Still no shipping on my Portal but it also still says release day delivery. I guess Sony is sending out orders overnight?

No changes to the controllers since launch. Only the color is different.

I think the best you can get is to pin the games you want to the home screen. When you have a game you want to be always on the home screen, hit the option button, and at the bottom there is a toggle for "keep on home screen" or some such thing.

I guess there were tiny changes in the springs and stuff. Someone here was posting that only the 3rd variation has the ability to add a back button or something.

No, all versions of the Dualsense can add back buttons, it just depends which version you have to determine which kit you should buy. I got my PS5 Slim and added the back buttons to my controller. It came with the newest version:

Wow, does that look cheap compared to the Dual Sense.

If I have 2 versions of a game, PS4 and PS5, I can delete the PS4 one right?

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Looks like I'll be getting my Portal today. Sony did ship overnight for release day. The timing isn't great though since I'll be using Switch as of Friday when Mario RPG Remake launches.
