That was my first thought as well. They can't really re-promote 2 to tie in with the show because reasons...

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Is there a way to use my Apple Air pod Max headphones with the PS5?

I hope the Last of Us is a reimagining with different maps, etc. than just a straight up remake.

It looks like there are a couple of ways to do it: either using a Bluetooth adapter to connect wirelessly, or using a Lightning->3.5mm adapter to physically connect to the controller. And it looks like the Max has everything you need, if you're okay connecting to the controller.

PS5 April Update brings new storage options and social features – PlayStation.Blog

First major PS5 console update (rolls out 04/14) lets you store PS5 games on USB extended storage, share gameplay across PS5 and PS4 consoles, and more.

Store but not play? Or can you actually play from extended storage?

I still haven't even connected to external storage because of all the problems they had at launch, have those cleared up?

You can't play PS5 games from the USB storage, it needs the speed of the SSD.

They are still working on the internal M2 storage.

I have not had any issues with keeping my USB drive attached, just won't use rest mode until I know that is fixed.

You can store PS5 games on extended an external drive, but you can't play them from there.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

The reason I'm confused is because I thought you could already store but not play PS5 games on extended storage (maybe I was mistaken, I've never tried). Is this talking about support for internal extended storage or something (which I don't think they've even said which drives are usable)?

You haven't been able to store PS5 games on USB storage, this update changes that.

For people like me who have a hard data cap monthly, that is good news. Games such as MK11 and Borderlands 3 are close to 100 GB downloads or almost 10% of my monthly cap. I am loathe to delete them currently because it's such a chunk of data to re-download.

You can store games but not play? That's dumb as shit. What purpose could that possibly serve?

Oh. Got it. Guess that makes sense.

In addition, it's a whole lot quicker to move 100 GB than to re-download 100 GB files. When you can only keep 700-800 GB on the SSD, it's nice to be able to move big files back and forth as needed.

Can't wait to move a few games. This will make some breathing room. Also, I noticed that the PS5 likes to save a lot of videos and pics on the hard drive. There is something like 18 gigs of both on my ssd and none of it was at my asking.

The April update will also deal with how Trophies video and pics are taken as the user will have the ability to enable it to just Gold trophies for example. This should save a lot of space in your hard drive.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Just to clarify there was already an option in settings to just take a picture when getting a trophy instead of a video and that will save you a bunch of space.

I did not know that, but I'm glad I do now--thanks. I hate all those videos, esp. in a machine with such limited storage capacity.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I didn't know that either.
I just bought a second designated PS5 storage HDD, silver color, 2 GB, $60 @ Amazon, that I will just plug in to move PS5 games to and from, and keep the 1 GB external HDD that I currently have for PS4 games plugged in the rest of the time.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I'm pretty sure someone posted that info here a few months ago. As someone who has gotten a ton of trophies on my ps5 that cut like 40gb of videos.

Can I set it to just not take any pictures or videos?

Ha, I didn't want to sound like an old fogey but that's exactly what I was going to ask.

All adding a share/photo button on modern consoles did was ensure that I accidentally use up a lot of space. Do people really go back and look at these videos of their achievements?

Yes you can. It's just the pictures take up barely any space compared to the videos.

Dbrand sent email that "wasn't extortion" that they would ship your dark plate sooner if you gave them money. I sent them a dollar. Hopefully speeds up mine to ship immediately.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Well shit. I tried to move five games off my PS5 onto my new external HDD tonight. I picked five big files. I didnít think it would take too long. Over an hour later it was only half done and I was getting ready for bed. I didnít want my TV on all night so I turned it off thinking that the PS5 would finish itís transfer and eventually just power off. Well the moment I turned off the TV the PS5 shut down. I havenít turned it back on but I am worried everything got corrupted and/or messed up. Why does the PS5 turn itself off when the TV is turned off? The PS4 never did that.

You need to adjust the HDMI link setting on the PS5.
