  1. I'm sure I'll be about for some games at some point. Gamertag is KilledSwine.
  2. Don't know if this solved it for you, but I'm still finding the controller will now work on certain menus, but other menus will still default to expecting a mouse input even with the mouse USB receiver unplugged... Ignore this... Just figured out that I had to delete the controller profile binding for it to finally work!
  3. Started up Snowrunner on Tuesday night, and played through to building the first bridge. I can see where some of the frustrations can come from, although some of mine were self inflicted! A detour sign that I probably should have listened to as managed to get stuck in the mud, I then proceeded to pull down about 15 trees before I finally winched myself out. I imagine it could be good fun in the multiplayer side, so if anyone fancies seeing what that is like, add my gamertag (in sig)!
  4. I'm glad I'm not the only person who found the gymkhana stages bad! I went through trying to be a perfectionist until I reached the first one, and then as you say just trying to scrape through!
  5. That sums up my experience today. As you say, the relief on beating Phrike was huge! There's been a few times where I've been tempted to throw the towel in and sell it, but happy I've persevered!
  6. Thought I'd resurrect this thread rather than start a new one. Did anything ever take off with this? I vaguely remember adding a few people onto my friends list but didn't really check in again. Went back to multiplayer on the PS5 recently, and remembered why I normally avoid public lobbies!
  7. Edit - Managed to get them refitted by removing a couple of the rubber plugs and refitting that way! Nightmare! Wondering if anyone might be able to give any advice. Managed to pick up a kit today, but the chap I brought it off only managed to fit one silencer on the drums. Following a guide online, I've got the other pads off, but finding that they don't seem to want to clip back in. The 'rubber feet' are still in the bottom, but the pad doesn't seem to want to clip in fully. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers.
  8. I see that Satisfye are finally selling the grips through Amazon in the UK. Pricing is £29 for the Switch Lite version and £31 for the Switch version. Although expensive, I'm guessing this is the cheapest option to get one in the UK at the moment?
  9. Just a quick update on this. I managed to be lucky and grab a new unit from Argos when they had stock. Unfortunately the exact same noise as the original console for me. It definitely seems luck of the draw to whether the fan runs 'whisper quiet' or audible. It does mean that I'm going to have a spare console if any rllmuker wants it before I send it back to Amazon? Obviously disclaimer that it's not a whisper quiet unit, but may help someone before Xmas. Would be collection only from near Oxford.
  10. I am loving it so far, but I think this clip from the Sweden rally shows that I need to focus a bit on the finish...
  11. Anyone who purchased WRC9 in the PS store sale, what's your impressions of it so far? Worth a go for the price?
  12. I did manage to get a call back, but have found a place behind my entertainment unit where the noise is dampened a little so I'm the same as you. Will wait for Amazon to get hopefully get some stock in the New Year and organise a swap over.
  13. Only just logged back in... That escalated quickly
  14. Someone on Resetera appears to have solved the fan noise issue with o rings on the small knobs around the casing of the fan. Along with alot of tweaking of the tightness of the screws. Might give it a try when I get back later. It's worth a try!
  15. @Spacehost No success with some tinkering around the fan casing etc. Spoke to another chap at support who I had a bit more luck with, and like you am now waiting for a call back from a supervisor/manager to potentially organise a repair!
  16. Seems you may have had more success than me! I'll keep you posted if I have any success reducing any of the fan noise
  17. Fortunately you can get to the fan without removing any of the warranty stickers. Am just going to try adding something to try and combat the vibrations from the fan.
  18. I'm now tempted to grab a few bits today and see if I can find anyway to reduce the noise myself. The chap I spoke to just explained it was coil whine. I was like no, if I remove the fan from the casing, it's silent. His reply was "We won't take it in for repair as it's not a fault. If you don't like it, return it to your retailer". Cheers then.
  19. @Spacehost Just spoke to Sony after being on hold for nearly 2 hours. They've refused to take it in for repair. Advised me to return it to the retailer for a refund. When I pushed for a repair, he basically told me they'd receive it in and just post it back out to me. Amazing customer service
  20. I opened mine up yesterday and done the same. There was a video on YouTube of someone who had put some pads or putty of some sort to raise the casing around the fan when it was screwed in. Video before: Video after: May be worth a shot for anyone not wanting to send it back into Sony.
  21. This mirrors my experience with them. Have been using the PS5 since Thursday, and just stuck the SX on now and the difference (at least in my case) seems fairly significant! It does seem luck of the draw on the PS5 front, and appears to be a mixture of some people having coil whine, some fan noise and some both together!
  22. Well being that I sold both the PS4 and Xbox One a few weeks ago, then yeah it's handy to have the Series X there.
  23. Ordered through Amazon. They're happy to refund, so will see what I get back from Sony. Half tempted to return to Amazon for a refund, and wait until stock levels sort themselves out. Still got the Series X to keep me entertained!
