PS5 thread 2.0

Hi folks, just to tidy things up and since the other thread is heading towards 10,000 posts, please use to discuss the PS5 if you’re lucky enough to have gotten one.

Please keep posts about orders or stock to the other relevant threads. Thanks!

My friends PlayStation crashed a lot however he wasn't using the provided hdmi cable nor did he wait for Astro to update. So may be worth checking them for the poster having trouble.

New shiny console for new shiny thread! Huge thanks once again to Wing for posting the Smyths link when they did. Seeing the madness of the other stock thread, Argos not getting any, Gamestop.... being Gamestop. Thank You!!

Best of luck to everyone still in their search of one. As for me, I'm one happy, happy man.

To Future Zero reading this while waiting for your PS6 to arrive, I hope your year is going better than the absolute ****show that is 2020.

She's a beast, added the Jameson for size comparison

20 minutes into owning it and I'm in safe mode now as the firmware update didn't go well.

I downloaded it off the site while I was waiting for the courier, and updating normally now seems to have worked.

Updating controller now.

Initial thoughts : very quiet, quick, dualsense is fantastic, Astrobot is lovely. Got the update and transfer from ps4 done pretty quick. The console is big. Cant quite find a satisfying place to put it but whatever!

Now it's time for demons souls!

Never really had issue with the PS4 downloads, just tended to let the machine handle it in rest mode.....probably not as quick as the Xboxes, but nothing major, but I did like utilising the app to kick off the downloads this morning (hadn't tried it out with the PS4 previous to this).
Quick, responsive, download queues seem fine (heard some US users concern with this) and fast

Don't overlook Astro's Playroom just because it's preinstalled and free. It's fantastic. I've just finished the SSD level which was brilliant.

Serious heart in mouth stuff earlier as I saw the DPD van go by and checked the tracking only to see, to my horror, it was marked delivered 5 minutes later. Luckily enough I was able to get through to the depot who put me onto the driver and explained he'd delivered it to a neighbour by mistake.

I've never moved with as much haste and determination in my life. Neighbours must surley have mistaken me for Indiana Jones after the Ark of the Covenant. Anyway, I rescued it in the end without any hassle and have it setting up at home now!

With a bit of luck now that'll be the end of my stress over this fecking console!
