You’d be missing out. Ted Lasso is absolutely fantastic, The Morning Show is great, and I really enjoyed Mythic Quest. There are plenty of other recs in the thread. I don’t think I would necessarily have paid for it monthly, but for free there’s some really good stuff there. 

 

I really liked Servant. The first season, especially.

Downloading Demon’s Souls now, I think I’ll probably grab returnal when I get paid tomorrow.

 

How does the free upgrade for FFVII Remake Intergrade work? Is the DLC even out yet?

If you bought the remake on PS4 digital then you get a free upgrade and the content will be 15 quid ish

Bricked PS5?

 

I’m stuck on power up with no display and a thin white light, and a small white lights on both of my controllers.

 

I can’t even get the Mr Resetti error thing if I reboot it.
 

Help!


Have you tried switching TV on and off, sounds as though PS5 is on? Could it just be an HDMI handshaking thing?

And that was it!  Thank you.  Normally I would have automatically tried that, but I didn't think while acting in such a blind panic.

Would there be any benefit to one with a heatsink in PS5 or is the cooling fan designed to negate that?

 

 

The ones that have heat sinks need heat sinks to not break, usually because they’re particularly high performance and generate a lot of heat. You wouldn’t want to make a purchasing decision based on whether one has a heat sink or not.

So about £100 for 500GB/ £180 for 1TB, sameish as the XBox?

 

XE has it more like 200 so with brexit tax prolly £220 albeit Aus tech is usually dearer so yeah, £180 - £250 range ;)

There is no active cooling in the PS5, the lad that tested it was surprised - Sony will have to specify what ones work due to space and thermal factors so you will know what one to buy when they tell us!

Seems like the instructions are up, which means their spec is also up: https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/hardware/ps5-install-m2-ssd/

 

Quote
  • Interface: PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 NVMe SSD
  • Capacity: 250GB – 4TB

Cooling structure: Using an M.2 SSD with your PS5 console requires effective heat dissipation with a cooling structure, such as a heatsink. You can attach one to your M.2 SSD yourself, either in a single-sided format, or double-sided format. There are also M.2 SSDs that have cooling structures (such as heatsinks) built in.

  • Sequential read speed: 5,500MB/s or faster is recommended 
  • Module width: 22mm width (25mm width is not supported)
  • Form Factor: M.2 type 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280 and 22110.

These numbers can be found on retail listings for M.2 SSD devices. The first two digits refer to the width, the remaining digits to the length.

Socket type: Socket 3 (Key M) 

 

Total size including cooling structure:
In millimeters: smaller than 110mm (L) x 25mm (W) x 11.25mm (H).
In inches: smaller than 4.33in (L) x 0.984 in (W) x 0.442in (H).

See below for full requirements.

Length

The following M.2 SSD lengths are compatible with PS5 consoles:
30mm, 42mm, 60mm, 80mm, 110mm (corresponding to the form factor type, per above).

Width
A 22mm-wide M.2 SSD module is required.
The total structure (including an added cooling structure) cannot exceed 25mm (0.984in).

Height
The total height of the M.2 SSD and its cooling structure (such as a heatsink) – whether built-in or separate – must be less than 11.25mm (0.442in).
The height must also be in the right place, in relation to the M.2 SSD’s circuit board: 

The size below the board must be less than 2.45mm (0.096in). 

 

The total size above the board must be less than 8mm (0.314in). 

(Note: millimeter measurements are the technical standard and are more precise than inches. We recommend double-checking that the total dimensions of M.2 SSD and heatsink products you’re considering meet the millimeter requirements before purchasing)

Both single-sided and double-sided M.2 SSD devices are supported.

 

M.2 SATA SSDs aren’t supported.

 

You should carefully review drive specifications prior to purchase and contact the vendor or manufacturer if you need further information. SIE cannot guarantee that all M.2 SSD devices meeting the described specifications will work with your console and assumes no responsibility for the selection, performance or use of third-party products.

 

Not all games are necessarily playable with the exact same performance provided by the PS5 console’s internal Ultra-High Speed SSD, even where the M.2 SSD device’s sequential read speed is faster than 5500MB/s.

 

The majority of M.2 SSD devices with the above type numbers (M Key Type 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280 and 22110) and without a built-in cooling structure will fit the PS5 console’s SSD slot. However, sizes for cooling structures (like heatsinks) vary greatly. If you are not sure an M.2 SSD or cooling structure (such as a heatsink) you’re considering meets the size requirements outlined here, we recommend looking for another product option or contacting the vendor or manufacturer for more information.

If the Samsung 980 Pro fits (which it should), I'd buy that and a third party heatsink. Amazon have the 1TB version for under £180, and I paid just under £300 for the 2TB version last month.
