When I'm allowed by she who must be obeyed, I'll get a custom dualsense in black.

Wife beating may be socially acceptable in Sheffield, but it is a different matter in Cheltenham

@hypnotoad I almost ordered one of those from USA a couple of months back, but decided against it as I'd never heard of the company, so did not wanna risk it.

@JohnnyShoulder I saw one bought by a reputable youtuber (can't recall his name, I'll look it up) and it looks decent mate.

@hypnotoad I've just done a quick Google and there are a few UK sites that have popped up. When I was playing around with the colours before, black and a bit of red looked quite cool.

Bentleyma-

This is pretty impressive. Looks like it’ll make it easier for developers to make games that rival the graphics of games like Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part II.

@Kidfried I wouldn’t want to live in a world where The Sims games look that realistic!

Just saw the 4K footage of the Ratchet and Clank State of Play (I never watch them live as I like to watch them in 4K when they go up afterwards), and holy moly that is one good looking game! Not sure how anyone can say that is not an upgrade from the PS4 game?!

I only saw it at 1080p myself @JohnnyShoulder and the amount of detail in Nefarious City with the sheer density of flying vehicles is insane, yet alone the actual detail of the city and actually having a number of people walking around...

It's a real step up from the 2016 reboot and Kerwan's metropolis which is actually pretty sparse beyond the enemies and some flying cars and buildings in the distance

I'm currently rather busy with work so apologies in advance if I don't reply to your post til a few days later or seem a little less talkative the usual!

I do appreciate it though! :D

@JohnnyShoulder It's literally the best looking game I've seen. Sure, it was just a preview but on the other hand it's compressed video. Can't wait to play it.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy @Voltan It has certainly been bumped up my list, will get it after Returnal which I will be getting pretty soon. Hopefully it should be fully patched up by then.

The interwebz seem quite convinced that Ratchet & Clank preview impressions will start surfacing tomorrow.

Had my first catastrophic PS5 crash today. Turned itself off instead of going into rest mode. Wouldn’t turn back on, after holding the power button removing the power etc, it came back on. Straight into Safe mode at the selection screen, would only let me choose option 7 (complete reset of the console) but both of my PS5 controllers wouldn’t work to so I couldn’t even press to select it.

Managed to get through using a PS4 controller. Wiped everything from the console after a few restarts.

Spent another hour trying to reset the controllers. Turned out, all I needed to do was hold the PS button for 20 seconds and they both worked fine.

Annoying that need to download everything again, but most annoying is the loss of all my photos from photo modes. Spent hours and hours in some games like Ghost of Tsushima in photo mode. Lost them all. Gutted.

Think I’ll be backing that stuff up from now on. Yeah

@SoulChimera I’m beginning to think that the system software itself is the problem. So many people now have reported these sorts of crashes and having to reset their consoles. And then Miles Morales was bricking consoles, Disco Elysium had save data and crashing issues same as Returnal. I also had save data and trophy issues with Tony Hawk, as well as trophy issues with Returnal. Could it be possible that it’s Sony themselves that are the problem, rather than these individual developers?

@nessisonett I think the people that having these issues are in the minority though, if you think about how many consoles are out there.

@JohnnyShoulder I understand that but think about how many people were making sure not to use extended storage and such out of fear for their consoles. It might be a minority as it always is but it’s definitely a worry.

@nessisonett There are nearly always problems with new tech, hardware and software. There are problems with the Xbox series consoles too, so I don't there is a massive issue with just PS5 consoles. It's unfortunate but I think it is just one of those things and unlucky if happens to you.

Forgot to mention, I had to download the reinstallation software to a USB from Playstation.com. Absolute nightmare.

Gutted about my photos.

@SoulChimera I'm so very sorry to see that you lost all those screenshots. Not to belittle any other frustrations connected with your PS5's crash, but that's the bit which hits the hardest. I really hope you're able to recreate some of them somewhere down the line, or that your console stays stable long enough for you to enjoy capturing new ones.

Yeah, to be fair, it was a bit of a nightmare getting the PS5 to come back on, for a few minutes I thought it was bricked. But redownloading the games isn't really a problem. Just a few hours and it's back to normal.

But yeah, I've spent hours upon hours in photo modes. All lost. Oh well, lesson has been learnt, back them up!
