What is it?

the Playstation 5 or 'PS5' or 'piss5' is Sony's new flagship home console offering for the 9th generation of videogame consoles. It is the standard-bearer for the megacorp's futuristic vision of interactive entertainment, set to release this autumn during the 25th anniversary of the brand.





...

What does it look like?

...

How much is it?

The PS5 has 2 SKUs to choose from, a Base Edition with a 4KUHD Blu-ray drive, and a somewhat less expensive Digital Edition with no Blu-ray drive. Aside from the Blu-ray drive they are the same machine with slightly different shapes.



(canadian is something like 499 and 629 RRP )

...

Why is it?

The PS5 represents Sony's first foray into console architecture designed entirely around maximizing the bandwidth potential of SSD technology and minimizing bottlenecks and seek time. Other features include a focus on 4KHDR quality graphics, boost mode for nearly complete backwards compatibility with the Playstation 4 library, HRTF 3D audio Tempest Engine, Adventures In Raytracing!, newly redesigned haptic feedback (rumble), and more!

...

What kind of HDMI cable do I need for the optimum 4K experience?

Vietnom nom nom posted:

Warning to anyone looking at that cable, that's just an HDMI 2.0 cable NOT HDMI 2.1

If you want 4k/120hz (like if you just bought a new LG CX TV or something), you'll need an HDMI 2.1 cable like the following:
https://www.amazon.com/48Gbps-Compatible-Netflix-Playstation-Samsung/dp/B07S1CGQ9Z/

Those are rated for 48 Gbps and are HDMI 2.1 certified.

The monoprice equivalent would be this:
https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=31229

The cable with the PS5 of course works as well, these are just if you want another for whatever reason.

univbee posted:

Quality of HDMI cables is starting to matter now with 4K HDR and especially with 120 Hz and VRR.

Any HDMI cable can do 1080p60 SDR unless it's totally hosed. (HDMI 1.4)
You need somewhat recent, good quality cables for 4K, especially with HDR. (HDMI 2.0)
You need new and excellent quality cables for 8K, or 4K with 120 Hz or VRR support. (HDMI 2.1)

The cable included with all PS5s is HDMI 2.1 compliant.

For other loose cables there's no way to tell without plugging it in and seeing. The only proper "tester" for this that anyone might have access to is if they have one of the higher-end Denon receivers from 2020 (the ones that are over $1000 and I think claim to support 8K).

If your cable isn't up to snuff you will have issues like video going black for a few seconds or flickering randomly, stuff like that.

(PS+ game collection can only be redeemed on a PS5, but once it is redeemed for a specific PS+ account all the included games are also available for use on PS4. This means that if you have a friend who owns a PS5 and you are able to log into your PSN account on their machine somehow then you can redeem the PS+ collection even if you don't own a PS5 yourself. Just don't catch COVID doing it )

UX/User Interface troubleshooting

univbee posted:

Time to report on a few common issues I've been seeing.

First is the whole PS4/PS5 multiple versions thing. Bizarrely, this issue cropped up for me when I downloaded Fortnite, despite the PS4 version being explicitly incompatible on PS5.

What you have to do when hovering over a game's launch icon is to press the button formerly known as Options and select "Game Version". This will break down into whatever's related to the game in question (I think it will also list base/GOTY versions where those are separate SKUs). So make sure you're on the correct (PS5) version.



Second is managing DLC at least for PS4 titles.

Same idea, you just go to "Manage Game Content" from the "Options" menu on the game icon.



Then anything you don't have installed that's a separate download will be listed here with "not installed" next to it.



Just go down the list and hit X to add the items to your download queue.






The PS5 DLC menu goes a step beyond and lets you uninstall components. It seems to have support for CJing language packs too, but I don't know if any games properly leverage this feature yet.

other Q&A

"How do I buy Spiderman Remastered?"

You are able to buy Spider-Man Remastered as a $20 PSN purchase with any version of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, including the PS4 version by using the free PS5 upgrade first. It's also an auto pack-in with the MM Ultimate Edition.

details

https://blog.playstation.com/2020/09/30/marvels-spider-man-remastered-detailed/

"Do I have to buy Sony's Pulse 3D headset to experience 3D audio?"

Nope! Any stereo headphones with an analogue 3.5mm jack can take advantage of the new HRTF 3D audio, that means headset you can get to successfuly hook up to the PS5 will utilize the Tempest Engine to some degree, not sure about through the DualSense controller port.

"I plugged my controller into the console and even enabled the options to charge it in Rest Mode but it's not charging!"

As of this time the front USB port does not charge during Rest Mode, try plugging your controller's usb cable into one of the rear ports. Check your settings, or try one of the rear ports, or get the controller charging dock which is a nice quality device for $30.

"Any other weird rear end launch bug issues?"

Yes. External storage is a bit buggy right now. Predominantly, most serious issues people are having with their launch consoles involve some kind of sketchy interaction between playing PS4 games off of external storage and using Rest Mode. Take that for what it is.

"anything else??????"

Don't skip Astro Bot!

the repair/return experience

univbee posted:

My big beautiful box arrived from Sony with no PS5 inside











Oh wait, that was the point, it's a box for me to send my PS5 to them (I have that RT issue). Here's info on it, for the curious.



Big chunky box containing absolutely everything you need to send your PS5 back, including a prepaid shipping label and even strips of tape to seal the box with.

The foam that supports the PS5 is precisely molded to perfectly hold the console.



And here's the instructions you get for sending it back, it's pretty much identical to the PS4 Pro I sent in. You have to remove the stand. Also, as usual, dead bugs in console = voided warranty and they won't repair it even if you pay them.



My plan is to ship it back first thing on Monday and hope I get it back for Friday (might not be likely but definitely possible).

I love Doom as much as the next guy, I actually figured the next id game would be a different ip. Possibly even a new one. They've been working on Doom exclusively as their main project since Rage back in 2011. (Rage 2, Quake Champs, and Wolfenstein being by other devs.)

Even though I'm still not a big fan of the aesthetic of the DeS remaster, I thought it was really awesome to see how quickly Bluepoint responded to criticism. Within a few months, while they were still in active development, they fixed a couple of things that really peeved off fans, like Flamelurker having a regular jaw with a beard instead of an unhinged jaw melded to his chest.

Or maybe he changes appearance partway into the fight, who knows! Either way, I'm happy loosejaw Flamelurker is here to stay.
