@nessisonett Yeah, I’ve felt the back of the console and been pleased how cool it feels even after a couple hours. Do you have your vertical or horizontal?

@Th3solution Vertical but I have been hearing strange creaking noises from it occasionally so I think I might need to take a look at the stand.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

@nessisonett You mean like creaking noises after you turn it off? I think that's normal, it's just the plastic parts "settling" due to temperature change. It seems to have mostly gone away after a few weeks of regular use for me.

@redd214 Thanks, man! I appreciate all your advice and support over the last 5 months!

@Th3solution Really pleased you were able to get one finally! Hopefully it starts becoming an essential purchase sooner rather than later.

@Arugula I mentioned it in the other thread, but I’m looking at Returnal as the possible tipping point for when it feel like my PS4 has been made expendable.

I've had my PS5 for like two weeks now and I really like it. What's weird is that the things that I've seen people complaining about most (the UI in general, cards, etc.) are things I've really liked and the things I've seen people celebrating (particularly the haptic feedback) I'm just not sold on at all.

@Voltan Sometimes when the console’s on too. It’s a bit odd but I just assumed I either have the stand on too tight or not enough.

@Thrillho I find them a little redundant so far but I'm sure they'll become a lot more useful in time.

@Th3solution I expect my tipping point to be Gran Turismo. My PS4 is semi-retired to the bedroom but I'm not doing anything on the PS5 I couldn't do on the 4.

@johncalmc Yeah same here! I think the UI is a bit different to the PS4 one and there are few things in different places, so people may be finding it a bit difficult to get used to.

@Th3solution Congrats! In regards to the disk drive, I can hear it kick into action when I first turn it on or insert a new disk, but I wouldn't say it is excessively loud or anything. But I wouldn't say what you are experiencing is not normal either as others have mentioned the same thing.

And yes you can charge the controller with your phone charger. I've been doing that since I first got my PS4 and not noticed any negative effects.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@kyleforrester87 Funny you should say that as it gets used primarily for television now which is puts me straight to sleep.

I'm 2 Anchors of Fog away from getting the platinum in God of War, beat Sigrun last night, one hell of a battle and playing on PS5 is great with quicker loading times 60fps and most importantly the console is super quiet and cool. I was always terrified my pro would explode into flames whilst playing games that really pushed it.

@Th3solution Buddy, awesome news! You were a day away from getting tagged with a "hope everything's going okay" message someplace, as I'd noticed your absence this past week and knew you'd mentioned the possibility of getting a PS5. I was worried that you'd failed and, as such, couldn't face returning here to wade through paragraphs of people happily enjoying their upgrades.

As for your thoughts and questions, I have my PS5 horizontal and had similar misgivings about potential stand misalignment. Usually I'm pretty good at eyeballing such things, and I think I've gotten it as level as it's ever gonna be, but can also report that my PS5 is far from silent... and not just with discs, either. As others have reported, my disc drive greets new inhabitants with a friendly whir, but I also noticed a brief bit of aggressive spinning midway through a Hitman session, when loading a new location. It faded after ten seconds or so. Barely anything to write home about.

But during Spider-Man Remastered, which is a digital download, I've also noticed a small selection of various whines. It's worst when pausing for Photo Mode and quickly swapping out various filters, although the game is obviously muted during this process, meaning any ambient noise is gonna be more obvious to the ear. Sometimes changing light levels or swapping between Spidey's suits can cause fluctuations in the whine's pitch. This kinda makes sense to me, though, because these are exactly the same taxing tasks, in exactly the same game, which used to make my PS4 Pro howl at the moon.

And, considering that I haven't experienced a single crash or technical problem yet (outside of a few minor bugs inherent to Hitman III itself), these are all noises I'm beyond happy to live with.

@Thrillho @JohnnyShoulder @RogerRoger Thanks for the warm welcome to the company of the elite! Feels good to be able to actually relate to the tales and experiences of a current gen adopter.

I just played the first level of Oddworld, it’s really pretty good. I’m digging the cut scenes and the ambient music is all pretty cool.
