You're right. Good catch!
Thanks for posting the link.

I have a PS5 coming on Thursday......it’s actually a Christmas present for my eldest so won’t be getting used properly ’til then (I’ll have to test it out real quick of course), but it’s good to know how to avoid bricking it. I’d expect it to be patched by then however. :)

It's so much faster to patch things. It did a system update (~800mb) and an update to Astro and they were done in no time.

That’s good to hear......maybe I’ll be able to update and get a few games of Astro in before I have to box it back up. :)

I’m’ getting nervous, it’s Wednesday morning here, release is tomorrow and I haven’t received a tracking number yet... Really getting scared I’m going to get an email stating that they didn’t get enough consoles and that the website was spammed and blah blah: you’re not getting one.

Check Popfindr (dot)com for available stock at local target/Walmart/GameStop. Target had available stock, but only in store purchase. I walked out twice today with two ps5 disc versions.

There were a ton of people (myself included) that had similar experiences with Walmart and Target. It wasn't until launch day (Nov 12) that I got one email saying that it had shipped and another email that it was delivered. I wonder why?

Some people are saying it's caused by putting the system in rest mode while playing Miles Morales.


I have heard a lot of different stories some saying its Miles Morales, others Demon Souls, Spider Man Remastered etc. So far my system hasn't had any issues, so I am one of the lucky ones.

I think I’ll just set the kids’ console to power off every time...unless they release a patch before Christmas which specifically contains a fix for this.

Turned on the PS5 yesterday and had to wait for a game patch (and system update) to download. Turned on the PS5 today and it tells me a different game had been updated already. I was hoping this would have been different with PS5.

Playing with the game switcher today and realized it doesn't ask you "are you really sure you want to start another game? your current game will be closed!!!!" It just starts loading the other game. Much nicer!

Does anyone else find it odd that the media remote is out of stock everywhere?
A lot of YouTube streamers recommended their viewers to purchase small ticket items (especially) on the Sony/PlayStation website, in order to save their payment information once the PS5 purchase option went live.

I finally got one off the Sony Website a month ago, but the one I pre ordered from Target on 9/17 is still back ordered. I kept the order because when it does arrive, I will get it to my wifes nephew who also got a PS5
It took me days of trying but I found one and it arrives in a few hours!

Did anyone notice the PS Plus Collection game look any different?

I downloaded a few. I already basically maxed out my SSD

Games download and install insanely quickly on the PS4

I played Fallout 4 on the XBOX X and looks incredible. Haven't tried it yet because I don't have space on my SSD to download it. It is on my PS4 Pro
