Here's a bit of a strange bug both this scribe and Push Square editor Sammy Barker have encountered: Gone Home is stuck at the top of our PlayStation 5 profiles for seemingly no real reason. The walking simulator from 2016 hasn't been played by either one of us since its PlayStation 4 launch and we haven't tested it via backwards compatibility, but the icon refuses to budge. As the image above explains, it even places itself above PS5 titles Demon's Souls and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales. What's causing this, you ask? We have absolutely no idea.
The glitch doesn't seem to be affecting many next-gen gamers, with Google searches bringing up just a few mentions that this is also happening with Rebel Galaxy. We'll have to download Gone Home and take it for a very quick spin to see if that gives it a budge. Has this odd bug happened to you too? Let us know in the comments below.
Glad to see this affects others as well. For my game thats stuck at the top, its the Dead Island Definitive Edition, and it doesnt show my total playtime on it either...
No, I've got Fat Princess Adventures, Galak-Z, and Shutshimi stuck there. I assume you can get "rid" of them by loading the game up.
No, cause I don't own the game
But I realized that some games are listed more than once like Miles Morales, FF15 or FF7R. At first I thought that maybe one is the PS4 version of MM and the other one the PS5 version or the DLCs for FF15, but both of that wouldn't make sense for FF7R, which don't has DLC or a PS5 version
No, I only play good games.
HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH!
@mariomaster96 did you play the ff7r demo?
Cracking advertising from fullbright. Wonder how much that cost 😉
So long as the mayo game doesn't get stuck to the top of mine; ill be happy!!
@phil_j yeah, but still doesn't make sense for games like FF15, cause one lists the correct playtime of around 140h whereas the other lists a playtime of less than one hour and I don't know what that could supposed to be cause I played the DLCs definitely more than one hour and also the Episode Duscue demo I've played more than one hour
I have Pang Adventures at the top of my games list
I have the exact same bug. It's so bizarre.
For some reason Downwell is stuck at the top of mine.
Haha that’s great. If I had that glitch I wouldn’t fight it.
I don’t think I’ve ever encountered so many bugs on any launch day console. I’ve heard of people getting lots, but I’ve always avoided them. I seem to have hit bug after bug with the PS5.
Still love it though. Haha.
@SoulChimera Remember when Xbox 360s just broke? These are all very minor software niggles.
@get2sammyb Yeah, I wasn’t suggesting it’s anything major. Just saying at every launch, you hear about all these issues people have. Me personally, I’ve always managed to avoid them. This time, I’ve hit them all. Haha.
Even my launch day 360 survived.
I’ve been gaming for almost 40 years. I guess the odds finally stacked up against me.
Yup! Except for me it's Dark Cloud 2, a game I haven't played in many years. I started a thread on the PS5 subreddit last week and got one response who had the same problem but with the Nathan Drake Collection. So I imagine the problem has less to do with specific games and more with the games list to begin with.
Hoping it can get patched. Thanks for making a news story to bring some attention to this
I can now confirm that playing the game stuck at the top of your PS5 profile will allow it to drop down the list once you play something else. Sorted!
No I have Hawken at the top and idk why lol
@SoulChimera The only other two consoles I got at launch were the Gamecube and the 360. The only problem I had initially with the 360 was that a lot of the text was aimed at a HD display but I still had SD so you couldn't read it - Dead Rising comes to mind. Though in both cases, the bigger problem was that I ran out of things to play really quite quickly so ended up trading them both in and re-buying them a while later when there was more to play on them. Doesn't seem like I'll have that problem with PS5, but we'll see.
But looking back, I have no idea how I got almost every console each gen from the PS1 onwards yet only got 2 at launch. How did I have the patience?
@get2sammyb - Really? Somebody calls out the PS5 for being legitimately bug ridden and the best you have is but 360's died. YLOD was a thing too and that, like RROD, has nothing to do with PS5 releasing in a near beta state.
@Shigurui These things are not the same. That's my point.
I got worms battlegrounds instead to remind me of how god-awful it was. ;-;
Noticed all my play times for PS4 titles are double what they should be 🤔
There's a profile? Never bothered lol
I'm still trying to get rid of Disney+ from the left hand side of my TV section on the PS4
I haven't encountered this bug myself, but I feel like if I did it would probably be peach beach splash. It was one of the last ps4 games I played (although I only have Astro's, MM, and bugsnax for the ps5 currently).
@get2sammyb - Nobody else compared them, you did. It was pointed out that PS5 is a bit of a buggy mess and you came in with but 360's broke. You didn't acknowledge that PS5 is indeed buggy. You knee jerked the 360 into the conversation instead.
Hardware rivals for me lol
