PS5 firmware is out, 900 meg download haven't seen anyone report serious issues. just did mine, no issues had to plug in a cable to also update the controller after system update (optional). Some new menu options like check sync status, hide games in library, move PS5 games from SSD to usb cold storage.

Nier Replicant is out in a week although no ps5 patch and also on pc/xbox, but Returnal launches in 2 weeks and looks cool although at $70 msrp i'm not gonna be dipping my toes in until reviews come out and sales happen. feels like a game that even might go on PS+ in a year. No real interest in playing a dumpy middle aged Brienne of Tarth although that probably doesn't matter much if she's in her space suit all the time.

after that Mass Effect Remastered in mid May and Ratchet and Clank in June

Forgot about Returnal, looks pretty, but $70 pretty, debatable? I agree spronk spronk that it will be a PS plus game in a couple months when the bigger blockbusters start to finally come out.

I snagged from PS Direct but rushed through the order and likely had default Standard shipping so I expect it will arrive Monday at the earliest.

Yes, the “nightmare” of having to move games that you never actually play to storage.

The first thing I did on my PS5 was add my games. I got cockblocked after five games.

So yeah, it’s pretty retarded. I’ll accept nightmare for effect.

It’s a minor inconvenience. Only soyboy gaming journalists would call something like that a nightmare.

I disagree. Having to go spend another $300 on an external drive just to access diff games I’ll play w diff people is a terrible user experience.

It feels cheap. Especially after spending $500 on a next-Gen console.

It makes it clear that they don’t really have a novel solution in place for data management.

I already had an NVME external enclosure for faster loads on the PS4 anyways so will literally just swap where it plugs into. I also picked up a SATA enclosure for $20 when I cloned and upgraded an old laptop SSD; the USB connection speed wasn't terrible. Buy larger drives when they go on sale and keep cycling what you have as the hardware gets replaced.

yeah in the reseller discords im in its hilarious reading their stories of how every time a stimulus check goes out they get flooded with the exact amounts of the stimulus. "bro, let me buy a ps5 for $600... i'll throw in some weed" lol

meanwhile Sony has backed off its decision to delist ps3/vita store and will graciously let you buy games from them once more
