I’ve fitted the rise 4.0 to one of my controllers

 

makes a big difference

 

I'd be keen but I reckon I'd make a hash of it. I had enough trouble replacing the bumpers on my xbox elite v 1. I hope Sony bring out an official attachment like the DS4 one.

Oh yeah I have used it - I take it you have to use it with the PS5, if you want wireless audio I mean? 

 

Yep.

 

I didn't know you could use it on other devices though, thanks @Sarlaccfood

 

I also have the official charging dual sense, like Mike says it's nothing special but I think it looks pretty good. The only caveat is it needs a wall plug for power thanks to UK/EU voltage requirements even though you could get enough power from a single USB socket.

Trust me it’s so simple to do. A couple of cables to replace and that’s it

 

No need to have the l3 r3 or touchpad as mappable buttons so that means no soldering is needed

 

takes about 30 minutes taking your time

 

only negative is the pad doesn’t fit on the charging dock anymore

 

tempted to do my other pad too

That's a deal breaker. I guess if Sony intro an official one you would be able to remove it at will.

Summat or nowt?

 

I hope it's summat, but it's fairly flimsy evidence. Sony making a minor mistake on the PS Store wouldn't be a major surprise.

 

I'd be happy if PS2 compatibility came too.

What if there’s no plan to introduce true backwards compatibility, but to keep the existing PS Now streaming functionality and using it to sell access to individual game licenses instead of subscriptions to a library?

 

I know Sony have all the internal specs etc but I still can’t see them releasing a bullet proof PS3 emulator for PS5 and making releasing old games nice and easy.

 

I am happy to be proven wrong though.

My PS5 has got stuck in black mode after a few hours of playing. Went into Rest mode last night and now i've booted up it gets to the logo and turns off.

 

Tried putting turning off for 15 seconds and reboot does the same (after a software repair).

changed hmdi 

disconnected power for 5 minutes and it just does the same. Repair software the logo then that fades and nothing. Machine just pulses blue. Which is great an all but i didn't spend over 600 quid for a shit disco light!

 

Fucking hell.

Do you have an external HDD connected, might be worth disconnecting that if so?

 

I’ve also seen mention of clearing the cache in safe mode mentioned online, although not sure what that does.

No. An internal 2TB Samsung NVME. It was all working last night. Clearing the cache will mean a reinstall of all the games. And the loss of some save games.

 

*edit*

meh. Nothing worked but was able to fix it with option 6 (reset to default state)

- rather then a factory reset, although its effectively the same thing but it removes NVME format and user data. But anyhoo....

 

Oh and CSR Elite works too which is a result. Never worked before as the RJ12 cable failed. I forgot i needed one tbh. 

 

Been a long time since i played GT and it feels amazing now.

Top game played a PS4 game! :D To be fair did get the PS5 in summer and I was mostly busy doing other stuff and on the PC too... Never really got into Returnal at all.. so should stick that on again at some point and give it another try...  Be interesting to see how much time I've clocked up on the PC - Steam/GamePass probably soaked up a lot of my gaming time last year.

 

Does make me wonder though if I should just stick with the PC as it seems to be where I spend most of my gaming time. Clearly 4K visuals etc doesn't seem to be luring me to the PS5 to play although it's probably the fact I have more options on the PC and a GP sub I make use off 🤔

I used my PS4 pretty much exclusively for Battlefield to the detriment of everything else and then had a fallow year where, after deciding BFV was rubbish, I played barely nothing at all. Then, on a whim, I had a go on A Short Hike on PC last spring and the gaming itch returned. I bought my PS5 back last summer mainly in preparation for BF2042, but that's rubbish too, so I now have pretty much the whole of the last gen's finest Playstation games to pick my way through as well as any new stuff.

 

GoW probably has a quite a few more hours on it as it rolled over into 2022.

If you set your privacy settings to anything other than the default "Sony can track EVERYTHING", this won't work for you.

 

BTW if you check your profile and games played on the PS5, you can see the amount of hours you've played displayed next to each title. Shouldn't be hard to compile your own list with the amount of titles released. :P

Anyway, yeah Returnal, Sekiro boom.
