SCART leads were the one output method that gave you a green screen. At a time when Dixon’s etc. were touting the benefits of SCART alongside the DVD boom, it was a bit of a fuck-up, albeit only for Europe.

This really irritated me at the time. I used to wiggle the Scart plug out slightly so I’d get the equivalent of a fuzzy RF connection through it - but at least it was in colour. I had an Xbox as well - and for that you had to buy an overpriced crap remote control to watch DVDs.

Didn't know it is not released yet as I heard about it for 3 months. Thought it is done by now. 

 

 

The beta is still going on. If they are going to mention anything, I think your best bet will be the upcoming PS Showcase this Thursday. That or a very obvious blogpost. No way Sony would finally open up that feature to consumers without some form of marketing.

 

Oh and yes, you'll need to remove that SSD before you can update.

For those wondering, the system transfer at initial setup moved all mine and my wife's data without any problems, apart from randomly failing to copy some DLC for some reason.

 

I did think I had a dud disc drive for a minute or two though until I realised the discs have to be inserted the opposite way round to the PS4 😅.

 

What else? Persona 5 looked horrible until we switched the HDR to "On When Supported", in case anyone is finding PS4 games look washed out.

Resistance 3 is 10 years old?!

 

If only there was some sort of PS Showcase this week where Sony could unveil a remastered trilogy compilation for PS5.

 

Imagine...😮

 

Given they were terrible on launch with mechanics years behind the decent fps games of the day (or decade before) you have to say they are a nailed on for a remake trilogy @ £70 🤨

Resistance 3 was pretty great. I loved the first Resistance at the time as well. Still have fond memories of sniping people from the top of Manchester cathedral. The weapon secondary functions were fun and I’m pretty sure Vanquish nicked the design of the first boss.

 

Not really interested in playing them again, but then that goes for 99% of all the remasters we’re getting.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a new game to revitalize the series, that or killzone maybe, with fps games being so big at the moment do Sony have one of their own?

Off to pick my PS5 and second Dualsense up from my mother's soon. It was delivered there on Monday due to me not going to be at my own address that day. Could have went and collected it later that evening but decided I'd be better collecting it today as I'll be down that way on another matter.

 

Just thought I'd search for the one game I'm really looking forward to, the one game I'll be 100% purchasing today to play on my new machine, Demon's Souls.

 

"Oh nice, it's on offer on PSN for £48, I'm having that". Log in to my PSN to make the purchase and it immediatly changes to £69.99. Fucking offer ran until bloody Monday. Should have got off my fat arse and went and collected it the day it arrived. I could buy a pre owned disc but I'll most likely buckle and pay the £70.

 

Bastard.

It's like £20 on disc at the moment.

That is madness.  A disc these days is just a glorified license key with the game running from the SSD, so get it at the cheapest price you can find.

I'm not paying £70 for any disc version. The whole point of me buckling is so I can play it this evening, ergo digital. I'll be buying PSN credit like I've done with all my past PS4 digital purchases, cdkeys, shopto etc. I said £70 because it's £70 on the PSN store but had been £49 ending on Monday, I'll be paying less, as I always do, as I'd have done even when at £49 on PSN.

 

Setting the machine up now then off to find the best PSN top-up deal, I've been all digital for years.

Same reason I dont own a PS5 game outside of Astro at the moment, £70 is vile and £48 is still a lot - coming from PS4 where I was 100% digital and always managed to get games well under £50 on launch its a bit of a shock and preventing me from just trying a few games at ‘worth a punt’ price even if they aren’t games I’m totally sold on the genre (Miles, Demon, Ratchet)

Phoned up PlayStation "Support" on Monday about my controller. Waited 25 minutes in a queue. Spoke to someone who didn't really know what I was talking about, but they created a case reference for me and emailed it to me, they didn't hang on the phone for me, they requested I gave them the serial number of the Controller via email reply. The serial number is on the back of the controller and starts with G and its really small to see, not even with glasses on and then a magnifying glass could I see it. The only way to read it is to photograph it and zoom in. Ridiculous 

 

Emailed them back Monday morning - then nothing for two days. Then chased today, another 20 minute phone call. Good news is they pay the returns label (48Hour Royal Mail), the bad news is the link they sent me to track my return is an insure HTTPS link that Chrome and Edge block - (Starts with https://hardware.support.eu.playstation.com/ )

 

Shambolic.

Oh no! I have the dreaded copperless CFI-1116A model. Massive /s 

 

I have a Series S and a pretty hefty PC with lots of Nvme whoop. Both connected to nice TVs, but this PS5, this feels like my first taste of next gen. No disrespect or any childish war bollocks here btw. Just a really nice first impression, love my PC and Series S too. 

 

All connected up super smooth, even logged in with Sony's weaker side of things, software. Used their app and a QR code. Nice.

 

But it's Astro Bot that's given me the power of hyperbole. What a lovely introduction into the new system/controller. And those are some deep blacks for my nice new TV at the start. Demon's is coming down the pipe.

 

So yeah, loving my new PS5 at the minute, looks like there's enough software to keep the honeymoon going for at least a month.

 

"YOU DIED"

 

Excited as fuck to see that screen.

Have you been using your PS4 upside down?

but its also a route to more affordable gaming as you can sell it on and recoup something for it….
