Not bad for a console released during a pandemic. Probably won’t stop some people still having a strop about how Sony clearly have fucked up because they can’t meet demand though. 


Not bad for the most disastrous console launch in history.

I've had an email from Sony with my "Playstation Plus Summary" but it's nonsense.

 

It says I got 17 trophies last month, which is possible. It also says my most played game is FF7, which is true as I played it for about 6 hours.

It then says I've played 351 hours online in the last month. I rarely play online games, and have probably played a total of 20-30 hours in the last month.

 

Any ideas why Sony thinks I've played online 12 hours a day for a month? I've got 2FA turned on so don't think anyone is using my account.

Just competed Marquette, great game but some of the puzzles were so obtuse. I'm not ashamed to say the built in hints system was put to some use to get me through it, especially towards the end with miss leading key holes!

 

I also wonder how reliant the game is on colour for giving you hints... Being colour blind could have put me at a disadvantage.

I tried fortnite last night just to see what 120fps look like.

Its a bit weird setting it up having to change the preference to performance in the ps5 menu and then start the game.

I hate fortnite, I don’t play it and probably never will again.

I wasn’t overly impressed with 120fps. I could tell the difference between 120 and 60.

 

Thats that scratch itched.

So I’m still getting the issue where One-Touch Play works both ways which is annoying as it’s great to turn on the TV automatically when turning on the PS5 but bloody stupid to do it the other way around. 
 

Am I missing something?

Does your TV have settings for it? Mine is set to one-way in the options and it works for on and not for off.

same here. I’ve tried every combination of settings and it doesn’t work. I recommend turning it all off and saving your sanity.

Can’t immediately see any settings on the TV for it sadly.

Yup. I think this is the way forward for now.

I've got the same thing on my C9. It doesn't completely solve all the issues, but you can avoid the TV turning on the PS5 if you turn it on via one of the streaming buttons on the remote rather than the power button,.

Mine turns on the tv when I turn the

playstation on, puts the console in rest if I turn the tv off, switches back to TV when I turn off the console.

Is this the desired outcome?

 

Mine also switches on the PS5 when I turn on the tele. This is less than desirable.

Same here for me - no issues, rear port, 4TB WD.

Quick question regarding save files, which I can't seem to find a clear answer for online.

So I purchased the physical version of Horizon Zero Dawn when it launched on PS4 (didn't get the additional DLC).

I now have a PS5 and downloaded my save file via the PS+ cloud.

Now that Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition is coming out as part of Play at Home next week digitally, I can't see if my old PS4 save will work. From what I can see physical to digital saves do work but they need to be the same region and version. It will be the same region but as this Play at Home version is the Complete Edition of the game (which includes all the DLC), I can't work out if the save will be compatible.

 

Anyone know if the save will work at all? Or had any experience with this type of scenario with other games?

For me it didn't when I got the digital CE last year. I have no idea any more which physical version I had though.
