There’s an appearance of Joel and Ellie. Took me a while that the mushroom on the “enemy” represent the fungi that you find on the clickers.

You can upload 4K clips and it’s a lot faster than the PS4!

I don't suppose it lets you record in 60fps?


I think it does. Will check later.

Wife's just started Bugsnax and it actually looks really fun and intriguing. I want to play it myself now, kind of worried I'm going to see spoilers :lol:

I’m fairly sure I found and identified every game reference that uses a cameraman. Only one I was reasonably unsure about was a guy in a long grey coat shooting an energy gun but I think it’s the Order 1886

Astro’s Playroom. It’s been great and have played through a couple of levels again but haven’t quite finished it because I keep dying at the boss. Yes, I’ve got no skills!

I was about 2 minutes through the closing credits when I realised that if you spin the gold portion of the names it’ll give you an abundance of gold credits every time.

A lot of Nintendo-esque flourishes throughout.

Yeah I think it is Order 1886.

Found one I think may be FFX. But not sure.

I got my first PS5 issue: Demon's Souls wouldn't load after selecting it. It just stayed on that initial still frame title screen. I bricked it but the solution was a simple and easy one: a proper shutdown. I'd come out of a lengthy rest mode so I wonder if that did it, though it wasn't my first time using rest mode on this console.

They're over there, by their theremin.

I'm not sure, but I do know that I can't seem to find any support phone numbers or live chats for Playstation!

Amazon request you contact sony on this number for support 442078590000

Weird, my controller charges fine in rest mode.

Yeah it's not universal but from Google it does seem to be a fairly common problem. Hopefully it can get patched soon. I've had my controller plugged in for ages while playing and it's still saying the controller is only at 2 bars so I'm not sure if that's linked to it or a separate problem.

I didn't have a clue what that one was but have never played Order 1886 so that would explain it.

There were a couple I wasn't sure on so I'd like to look at a list online to see what all the games are.

I'm assuming there's a Metal Gear Solid one but I must have missed it somehow, where is it?

I’ll give that a try, thanks Orbital. I waited on hold for 45 minutes earlier today to the PlayStation support line before giving up! I’ll see if this one is any better!

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

I kinda miss the activity feed on the home screen, and I don't think it shows you if other people are playing a game when you highlight it like on PS4.

It’s in Cooling Springs. At the spawn for frigid floes if you want to jump straight to it

Be sure to give him a punch

Little thing that bugs me, the game icons for some games come up with the ‘PlayStation hits’ banner even though I don’t own that version. Guess that’s the one that downloads when you put the disc in tho.

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.

Long Live Switch Squad!

It’s the same file but yeah I agree. That banner need to strawberry float off completely.

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?
