Randomly checked local target and they had two, fumbled around with debit card info and signing up to their site... still had two sitting there.

Snagged one, and when I went to checkout two hours later, the other ps5 was still there.

PS5 Shortage ending ??

Anyway, Been enjoying it... actually surpassed my expectations. I hope I can find a Series X before Christmas season.

Installing the new SSD was pretty painless. The hardest part was getting the cover the off. Nice to have more space now.

Hi all.

Can someone with Extra/Premium please confirm something for me?

Is Uncharted: The Lost Legacy on the service the standalone PS4 download with its own standalone trophy list (and it’s own Platinum), or the Legacy of Thieves version with the conjoined Trophy list?
Anyone able to help please?

The Legacy of Thieves version is PS5 only and is available as a 2 hour trial for PS Premium people. The two games on PS+ Extra are the PS4 original standalone versions.
Just to be explicitly clear then, if I have Extra I can download the standalone LL on my PS5, with its own individual trophy list?

Yes, I just downloaded it myself to double check for you.
I could kiss you, thank you bro.

Reason for the request was that I didn’t back up my U4 save file and I couldn’t be arsed Platting the game again in the Legacy of Thieves collection 👍 will sub and download today 🙌

Meh, have to wait 2 weeks for my WD Black SN850 from Amazon. Considering my gaming habits, the 2TB (plus internal) should last me the entire gen though without wanting to upgrade. Got it for a kool $200.01.

PS5 is really a powerhouse system, which is crazy considering that it's only $500. I've been playing Miles Morales in Fidelity Mode and I'm just blown away by how good it looks.

I don't think the actual system looks very appealing, and it's shockingly large. Going to order some black replacement plates when I have some more money to dump. In white it looks like a giant seashell sitting on the TV stand.

Since getting a PC last year, I'm noticing more and more that the end-to-end latency on the PS5 is actually very bad. Some games have so much input delay it's embarrassing and switching back and forth between PS5 and PC has become frustrating. If I play on PS5 exclusively for a few days I seem to not notice it as much, but playing more on PC lately it's become clear there's a massive problem with the system latency.

Folks, I’m thinking about trading my ps5 (digital) for a series x. It’s not that I don’t love the ps5 (i do) but I’m wondering if I should give the Xbox a go. I already have a series s that my kids use mostly and I have game pass ultimate on that, it’s fun.

I’m kind of asking someone to talk me out of this with listing reasons over the next two years to play. Right now, my reasons right now are psvr2 and I have another year of plus under my belt. Not these reasons but decent.

Help?

In the end, it is up to you.

I have no Series X, but I play Microsoft games on PC

I have a PS5/Switch/PC, and I can play Microsoft stuff just fine.

I would hold off for a little while longer, for when more of their announced games release, if you're going to swap systems.

Don’t do it.

I’ve owned both an Xbox and PS since the 360/PS3 era. Most Xbox exclusives continue to miss the mark quality wise. Ori and Forza are very good, but 343i have really cocked up Halo. PS have more quality third party games like Kena too and they’ll continue to attract this type of game.

They have severe pacing issues and have for years, going from last year (5 or 6 good releases) to this year (no releases at all).

If you must get something just grab another Series S in addition to your PS. I’m playing a waiting game now for Starfield and to see if Fable and Avowed hit the right mark.
 
Appreciate the feedback folks. I’m just trying to think of what games are worth waiting for.

For spoken looks meh now, ff16 too. Hogwarts looks fantastic, ragnarok looks good too but is there really anything else big coming? I looked online and only the exclusives seems pretty lacking

Are you guys happy with your Series S? Then, maybe buy the Series X.

What I would ask myself is what's currently on Xbox, and do I want to play it? If yes, then get it, if no, just wait a bit more.

On the other hand, you could probably get a decent amount of money if you sell the PS5, before more stock is available.

If you can, just buy a Series X and keep the PS5. I have both and enjoy the benefits of both.
