Ya I remember that outrage over the Cyberpunk review and in the end, she was being pretty kind about it.. The attitude towards female critics in general is still pretty off.

Fair enough I was being a bit hyperbolic - But still, if there was hypothetically a Journalist who committed this great offense then who would miss their departure?!

Wow - That's a very certain, authoritative, definite, dismissive and sweeping assertion you couldn't possibly have reliably determined - Thankfully you were in the area to try and help out though - Much appreciated

Alright before this turns into yet another Days Gone thread (there's about 3 or 4 threads going that has been hijacked by that game), I'm hesitant to download the update. My PS5 runs so well, as did my PS4 at the start of that gen cycle before all the updates. The thing is when they make these things they don't seem to factor in updates and so it makes the system slower and slower as it goes along.

Well... yeah. I mean I do tend to be pretty dismissive of serious allegations of professional malpractice made without any evidence or examples being provided

Do anyone actually sit down and fully read a game review before buying a game anymore?

Was just watching a digital foundry video on the new system update,transfer speeds not amazing between internal and external drives. It's functional but still tiem consuming.

They came up with a solution to double the storage though,bought a digital edition on top of the disc edition

Was the PS5 in rest mode?

Have noticed that but only if it was left on the hdmi input the PS5 is on.

Same as if it was in rest mode and I selected the PS5 input it automatically comes on.

Ah ok, I'm fairly certain it was powered off but very well could have been in rest mode. Will have to test that later.

The new software update has enabled a setting called HDMI device link and this is causing the PS5 to boot up when TV is powered on. Can be disabled in settings menu.

As above. Will turn it on even if powered off!

Think I'll leave the setting on for now.

Jesus turning that off straight away. My 3 year old doesn't even know my PS5 exists and i want to keep it that way for a while. Was a close one when she heard the beep coming from the tv unit "WHAT'S THAAAAAT!?" You Bollox Sony. Handy function though if you're not trying to hide your console.

Weirdly this happened/worked for my TV before the update, and now it doesn't.

Don’t know if the right place for this question, but said I’d ask as I’m getting an info dump when I Google it.

I want to stream a few games of NBA2K21 from the PS5 to Twitch, it’s just a bit of laugh between work mates viewing two of us battling it out.

I’ve managed to get the voice / chat audio onto the stream, but the game audio is still missing from it.

Note I’m using the Pulse headset so don’t know if this has an effect?

Anyone a solution to getting both voice and game audio into the stream?

Thanks
