PlayStation 5 - Next gen is here!

I think the intention is for you to use Search to get to things quickly. From the home screen you can press Triangle, Cross, Cross to start searching in about a second and results are snappy. (I'd also recommend typing using the motion sensor, as it's great once you're used to it.)

 

Oddly they don't seem to have voice navigation in yet on PS5, which would be a sensible option given the microphone in the controller. Not that I'd use it personally, as I find talking to technology off-putting.

You can search using voice though, even quicker than motion sensor typing!

I also really dislike the obnoxious beep the thing makes when you switch it on. Same with PS4.

Such a premium machine, and the went for the cheapest speaker possible for the power on beep... PS3 was the same as well. My 360 slim is fantastic in that regard as I have the Halo Reach SE and I get all the Halo sound effect when I turn it on... Much better imo. They could have sold us custom sound packs to offset the cost of a better speaker/audio hardware...

Gone again already. Bloody hell. 

 

:lol:

 

I've been dipping in and out of PS5 news for a few weeks, seems pandemic or not this new console is impossible to obtain. If this website's little pull down option to display "See when shops last had stock" then no UK retailer has anything since 3/4th December.

Not in the US of course, just last week

 

Brexit?

Didn’t the government negotiate a deal with Japan quite early on?

 

Where was the flippin’ PS5 clause? Idiots. :quote:


It was a pretty shit deal, worse than the one we had through the EU, apart from they have now agreed to import a tiny amount of Stilton, which I presume they will put straight in the bin.

For as long as CEX are offering £625 cash for a ps5, there's going to be scalpers descending on any stock like the plague of locusts they are. 

True. But as long as people are willing to pay silly money for a PS5 CEX will keep offering the cash.

 

Supply will catch up with demand eventually. Just might take a bit of time.

Might be true if you kept your console out of the way in the kitchen and it wasn't sat directly under your TV staring at you every evening.

I'm building up a pile of PS4 games I'm holding off playing till I get a PS5 but every time I go to check stock, I see a picture of the thing and decide to wait for a redesign or at least an all black console. It's so damn ugleh.

 

It is the most hideous looking consumer electronics I have ever bought and still annoys me every time I see it which is all the time I am looking at the TV given that it's enormous white bendiness draws the eye so much. Black replacement plates cannot come soon enough.

 

Still, some fine games so far and that's the important thing I guess..

I quite like the PS5, but if the look of a console is putting you off it, you’re playing wrong.

I do not have a washing machine sitting in my eyeline in the living room.

I can see Sony holding back stock for a bigger drop at the end of the month for when folk get paid. Hopefully increasing the chances of non-scalpers getting one.


trickle some now. Let the scalpers stock up. Then BOOM! flood  the market with product.

 

Hilarity ensues...

Its far more likely Sony are selling to the scalpers direct cutting out the middleman, as if Sony gives a shit about its customers :lol:

My days, the last 1hr of MM is pretty awesome. Felt more connected to the characters than I have felt before. Great end game so much of the pretties too, RT60 all the way. That's going to be a hard act to follow. Lol post credits scene...

 

Nice

A brilliant game to play, especially on a PS5 at Christmas, the new abilities worked well and RT 60 was perfect. A very small criticism is that they cut back on the crimes just had a little too much as I found myself repeating them, all in all a much better paced game though.

 

I’ll come back to it in a few months to NG+/Platinum it.
