I have my PS5 stood up and have found that turning it side on (so the disc drive is facing left or right) makes the light output less distracting in a darkened room.

Phoe do you upload videos directly into Twitter? I don’t have any choice when I hit share button just YouTube is showing. Is it only available on mediashare app?

Played another few hours of Miles Morales tonight followed mopping up a few more collectibles in Astrobot, this is probably my most favourite console launch since GameCube.


You can switch it off. Just see the "three buttons symbols" next to it, press the option button to open a small menu. You'll see there is follow or unfollow option which will stop giving you some games come up that you don't own. Just select unfollow.

I switched them all off in my library games.

Twitter option will appear when the clip is short enough.

No they mean with games they own. Like I bought Last Of Us Remastered and God Of War digitally before they were added to PlayStation Hits but when I’ve downloaded them they have the PS Hits red banner across them. Like the old PlayStation Platinum days but digital :slol:

Wait, has Photek got a PS5?!

If so, with gamerforever getting a Xbox, this is some true parallel universe gooseberry fool

I think it might be dependant on what the res is. I have two copes of a 2min 18s clip. 1 saved as 1080p in Share Factory, the other is the original 4K manual recording. 1080p has Twitter upload option. 4K one does not.

EDIT: YUP! You cannot upload even a 0-1s 4K clip to Twitter. So! If you have a 4K clip you want to upload, edit it in Share Factory and I think it'll save it as 1080p and then you can upload that.

EDIT2: NOPE! The 1080p clip encountered an error on being uploaded.

Same. I liked the sense of community it engendered.

There is one way to check how many people play X game, but it's not a live number. Scroll over to the game > Click on 3 dots next to Play > View product > The box on the right tells you how many friends who play it. And obviously Game Base shows who's playing what in the moment. But yeah, I hope they bring the Activity Feed back.

Got the platinum trophy for Astro's Playroom last night. What an absolute pleasure that was. I love the rare occasions where I get 100% without looking at a single part of a guide. (I did have to reveal a few of the hidden trophies that I hadn't found by accident)

Doubt I'll ever get the bonus speedrun trophy though.

It is pure joy, my wife is taking the piss out of me for grinning like a loon and pointing out all the references like an excited 8 year old. It's looks pretty spectacular in spots too. So happy the sickness has passed.

That was the great thing about the feed – you got a sense of community but at a distance; you had the option to participate if you wanted (be it giving someone a thumbs up, or actually writing a message), or just lurk (which it what I mostly did), or choose to ignore it completely.

Nah, I'm sure he had to justify getting an Xbox Series S for his daughter with the price of buying 2 consoles so I think if a PS5 was bought then it would be some mid-life crisis gooseberry fool :lol:

I like the activity thread on my PS4; I enjoy seeing what games others are playing and how they're getting on. It feels good to give a "thumbs up", too; just a wee acknowledgement.

The communities aspect always seemed very half-hearted to me, though. After experiencing Miiverse I fear that most console community things will come as across as poor imitations.

I've got a real bee in my bonnet as game time checking is only available on the PS5... even for PS4 games :o :fp: . I really want to check my PS4 game times on my PS4!

I completed Astro's Playroom! A bit short but so lovely made special by all the little touches. The trance-like pop music is so perfect and it just lifts you when playing the game. I also love the two catchy tunes GPU but am not sure of the appropriateness of STD in a family game.

He's on my PS friends list, I was worried as he hadn't been online for a while but he's got a PS5 and was online yesterday.

There is 1 or 2 games I don't recognise, here's what I've found so far..
