At least it auto-saves frequently.
i had my first Miles freeze-up last night. it was near the end of a very long & hard mission, so I was worried all my progress would be lost when I Hard-closed it. but it saved up to the recent checkpoint.

Just finished Sackboy: A Big Adventure and you can definitely tell players have not been playing this very much because I unlocked trophies just through my normal playthrough that like 0.2 percentage of players have gotten.

It's a cute game. Admittedly I haven't played much of it. But maybe I should since it doesn't crash my system.

Does Sackboy still control like he does in the first couple games? The "floaty" controls turned me off to the series.

Does anyone else's controller have a short battery life? After about three or four hours and it needs charging again. I might have to break down and buy the charging station.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Haven’t timed it or anything, but mine seems to be about on par with the ds4.

Yeah, it's supposed to be about 150% of the DS4 battery life, but my results are about the same as the DS4. Not terrible but clearly in last place compared to the XBox one and something like the WiiU classic controller. (no idea on the Switch classic controller equivalent battery life).

It'll probably be Christmas before I get a chance to play this myself, but from what I've read, the controls are a lot tighter.

Same here. It might be a bit longer, but it does feel like if I put in a bunch of time gaming in a day, I'll have to charge it, and I don't have to do that with the Nintendo or Xbox equivalents.

No he's much less floaty in this game. No longer walking on the moon.

Does it still have physics based stuff falling down, levers, things like that? And the grabbing mechanic?

No it's a standard platformer by a different developer just using the character and world. It has nothing to do with the Little Big Planet games as far as mechanics. There is no creating and physics stuff from the Little Big Planet titles.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

On another note my daughter and I started Bugsnax last night (the wife and other daughter watched). It's.... different. Kinda cute in a weird way. The characters are ugly as can be but the actual bug characters are pretty cute. Anyway, it took us far longer than I want to admit to catch a Bunger. It took so long we heard "Bunger, Bunger, Bunger" over and over again. So now it's a 'thing' in our house. So at random anyone will blurt out "Bunger!" Kinda funny.

*edit - oh, and way too much talking in this game.

Your controller battery life will also be affected by what game your playing and the amount of haptics the game uses. Playing something like Astro's Playground will obviously use up the battery faster.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I managed to sell off my PS4 500 Million Limited Edition for $450 so not bad to only pay $50 to upgrade to the PS5.

The collectables in Astroís Playroom are reminding me that I have spent a shit-ton on Sony hardware and accessories over the years. I bet there were less than 10 of those things that I never bought.

I got the Sony one & love it. The one I had for my PS4 was finicky, had to get them in there just so; this one you just set them on there & youíre good to go.

Double post here but :
Thanks to a weird quirk, the PS5-only disc version of Watch Dogs Legions is on sale for $29.99 AND also comes with a $10 Rewards Certificate because technically itís a pre-order that comes out next week.

No reason to need to have played WD 1 and 2, right?

None. Completely different story, set in a different city (and country). But the main character from 1 will appear in upcoming DLC.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I donít know if everything in the PS Collection has been upgraded but my son wanted to try inFamous Second Son tonight. It looks AMAZING. Canít believe itís a six year old game. Very nice lighting and reflections and cool visual effects like heat distortion. That stuff has to be some sort of an update for the PS5.

Edit : Not everything in the PS+ Collection is upgraded for the PS5 but Second Son definitely is
