    Fuck yes. This was needed, I don't need 4K but I do want the bells and whistles. Hopefully they do that with Spider-Man Remastered as well.

    It was such a bummer seeing the RT in one mode... Just to crawl back to 60fps with no RT. What an update.

    Grr so pissed off trying to locate a PS5 - how hard can it be to work out demand for these things and fulfill them? We're on a bit of a deadline as I gave our bluray player to my sister last summer and can't get it back for obvious reasons (shes' in London were in Wales), the diskdrive on the PS4 became fucked sometime after out of the blue and the PS3 disk drive is now a bit erratic too - my eldest will be so upset if he can't watch his blurays! Its not even about gaming

    After a decade and a half, I have finally jumped ship from team Xbox. Was able to score a PS5 through Dell the other day and it should be here tomorrow. Hyped as hell to play Spider-Man.

    So that Dell drop was legit? Very nice

    Am I crazy or were there WAY MORE games for PS3 than there were for the PS4? It's either that or my gaming habits have slowed down immensely.

    I have close to 80 physical + digital or maybe more than that for PS3 and only like 20-25 physical + digital for PS4. The vast difference of library just kinda knocked me back a bit and made me think about what's changed in the last while, perhaps I've been buying up more of the cross platform titles for PC instead of my PS4, that could be one reason but still. Hm.

    Has anyone thought about system library comparisons like this and been kinda puzzled as to the how and the why of it all?

    The PS4 has a larger library I believe. PS3 (Including Japanese titles) is around 2,100 and PS4 around 3,000.

    My gaming habits are still pretty much the same, aside from the time I have available to play now. I was about 19 when PS3 came out, so I had much more on my hands to play and also due to the fact that it was a decent jump performance wise from PS2 so the itch was even bigger for me at the time. There are also a few more hundred exclusive titles for the PS3 I believe than the PS4 so not sure if that has anything to do with it. I do notice I'm a bit more selective with my games now, instead of buying every title I think might be good lol.

    Those are all pretty bad, outside MK vs DC, which I thought was an ok game. The combo system in it was torture though.

    I’ve decided to bite the bullet and bought a disk version PS5 from an eBay reseller. It was only 200 over the price! But it’s worth it as the Blu-ray player has now failed on both my ps3 and PS4 and my autistic son is OBSESSED with watching dvds and Blu-ray because he can play them fast and that’s his thing, he’s just coping with only watching dvds for 2 days while it’s shipped!

    im just really annoyed with Sony for fucking it up

    So Trump is actually indirectly responsible for the PS5 woes. I’m glad I bit the bullet and bought it now as it looks like it will be a while yet for normal sales

    Yeaa they are projecting past the fall there will be shortages... It's costing them more to make them at the moment than selling them due to what you said. I need a new PC right now and everything is just inflated to ridiculous prices.

    Anybody get hit with the stick drift shit on your DualSense controllers? Both of mine have it on the right stick and it's pretty fucking annoying. I haven't tried all of the troubleshooting things yet, disconnecting/reconnecting to blutooth fixed one for a few days but it was back to drifting last night. That one drifts vertically but is at least usable, the other one drifts so bad horizontally that I can't even use it to game with, it just spins in circles.

    That suckkkksss. I notice a drift the second day I was playing Astros Playroom in the left stick, but it magically disappeared; guess I got lucky? Doesn't help with the fact that they use the SAME exact pieces for the analog sticks that they used for the PS4. Was hoping to find a better solution when I opened mine up.

    And, from what I understand, the same company made the DualSense that made the Switch controllers that also have drift. Maybe use a different company?

    I never had any drift issues with any of my PS4 controllers but this is nuts. I guess I'll try resetting the one that is unusable, after that don't really have any choice but to send it to Sony to fix.

    Got our new PS5 today, it’s looking good. Although since I bought it specifically for my son playing Blu-rays, nearly had a panic attack when it didn’t seem to recognise any disk, turns out I think I set it up upside down and you have to put them in upside down with the labels facing downwards. The disk opening is at the top

    I've had drift on my PS4 controller for a long time now, but since i last cleaned it (i don't recommend doing it unless you are very patient and good with fiddly wires) the drift only happens on FPS games and actual move my cross hair up towards the head so it's helping in Warzone

    Exactly lol... I didn't have problems with my sticks until YEARS of heavy use... Not two months. Also noticed playing 2D platformers, I love to use the classic X for jump, Square to attack combo and the X button is now sinking further into the controller than the others. Its not like I'm smashing the damn thing...

    I ran across a youtube video showing how to address the stick drift issue. You have to take the controller apart but it doesn't look like a very technical mod... you're not going to need an engineering degree to pull it off.

    Hope I don't run into this issue. I constantly ran into a problem with the PS4/3 controllers R2 trigger breaking. Maybe I just push that button too hard (or maybe it's because it seems every game requires you to hold it down all the time)

    At this point, outside of exclusives the Series X is simply a better console. All the little gimmicks, changes, and the drift and stuff add up to make ps5 just a worse value proposition. Meanwhile basically any check mark in the gimmick or inconvenience department is undone on xbox. All the next gen transitions are smooth. The form factor is simple and sensible, accessories from last gen still work. It's more powerful. I'm a ps fanboy for sure, but I have both consolessand I'm just simply not using ps5 unless I basically have to.

    so, the new CEO of Sony is officially a complete idiot.

    They're dismantling Japan Studio, and many of the team (including producers who worked on Bloodborne and Demons Souls and the Demons Souls remake) are now free agents looking for work elsewhere.
    Why did they do this? Because I guess titles like Bloodborne weren't generating enough revenue when compared to titles like Spider-Man, and that's the sort of thing he wants to focus Sony's first party exclusive efforts on.

    So, this guy can go to hell.

    Facts. This is also the same guy that pretty much made the decision for millions of people that have been asking for BC for over 15 years now. "Why would anyone play this?" BRUH, HAVE YOU WATCHED ANY TWITCH STREAMS?

    I could care less about BC, but it should still be an option and losing this studio just stings and a lot of people are finally starting to realize why.

    Lance McDonald had to make a 60fps patch himself for Bloodborne which has been neglected and forgotten about (Obviously) having to mod your PS4 to make it work.

    ... Why the fans have to keep picking up the ball is beyond me.

    the PS5 store completely sucks.
    Is there any way to just see "what are the newest titles available, by release date?" It's like they took that option away in order to give precedence to whatever shit it is they want to advertise to you. This is going to kill visibility for indie devs.

    It is extremely bare bones atm (You cannot even access Youtube TV yet or NBA app) I have to keep switching to my PS4 to use certain apps, but there is filter option when you enter it. At the top will be tabs, go to browse/little arrow and burger on left-hand side/Scroll down to "Release Date" and check in "Just Released".
