thread guidelines

This thread is pretty open-ended and doesn't have much in the way of a set of rules, numerous derails are not only allowed but are actually pretty commonplace. That said, the PS community is large and diverse and you may run into any number of gaming opinions that you disagree with, or long running inside jokes you don't understand.

If someone insults a game you like please remember that is not an insult to your person and should not be treated as such. Per Veegy:

VG posted:


...

It is tough to repeatedly see people disparaging things you like over and over. However this is why I put a reminder in the rules that an attack on a game or console you like is not an attack on you as a person. What you enjoy does not define you as a person.

...

Just know that if someone attacks someone outright for liking something, then they will get the mod action. I like people to be honest about what they like and dislike but attacking someone for liking something with malice is not anything I can get behind.

VG posted:

You do not have to like every poster, you just have to post alongside them. You do not have to reply to every poster. You do not have to reply to anyone. If you wanted to just post into a void and never respond to anyone and just keep doing your thing here then do it. Just be funny and/or interesting.[/i]

VG posted:

If you do not like a game that has secrets and stuff then adhering to spoilers still is the decent thing to do. Someone who is excited for others to experience something makes sense. I love the reactions of people who do not know something about a favourite game of mine and I cannot imagine ruining it for others just because.

VG posted:

Just getting it out there now: the kind of posting that has been getting me down from the previous thread is not going to fly.

Be kinder to each other.

This does not mean forced positivity, just rethink how you are posting against each others points. :hai:

What is it?

the PlayStation 5 or 'PS5' or 'piss5' or 'thiccstation' is Sony's 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, originally released in autumn 2020 during the 25th anniversary of the brand.





...

What does it look like?








PS5 hardware teardowns

OG
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaAY-jAjm0w

slim
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cO9-5DFAmE

...

How much is it?

:siren: :lol: PRICE INCREASE :lol: :siren: (as of late 2023 these models will be discontinued and sold thru, the new 'slim' PS5s will merge via a redesign) Prices for these original models are now rather fluid.

The original 2020 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.

-

The late 2023 PS5 redesign also has 2 SKUs, the eponymous feature-complete standard version, and a slightly sheaper (and much slimmer) Digital version sans optical drive...hardware which can be added via a later purchase.

Expected prices for the new models

U.S.
PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – 499.99 USD
PS5 Digital Edition – 449.99 USD
Europe
PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – 549.99 EUR
PS5 Digital Edition – 449.99 EUR
U.K.
PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – 479.99 GBP
PS5 Digital Edition – 389.99 GBP
Japan
PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive – 66,980 JPY (includes tax)
PS5 Digital Edition – 59,980 JPY (includes tax)

...

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, 3D audio Tempest Engine™, Adventures In Raytracing!, sensuous haptic feedback, and more!

What's under the hood?

univbee posted:

So here's a breakdown for those unaware regarding the PS1-PSP-PS2 titles:

All games are in their "native" versions with no meaningful game enhancements/rebuilding, so expect weird controls, lack of analog stick support and stuff like that.

Each PS1 game has two empty memory cards that are unique for that game, one in each memory card slot. You can't manage their contents directly but can do whatever the in-game system allows you to do.

PS1 and PSP games have separate PS4 and PS5 versions, which have separate saves and trophies (which can't be transferred between versions) but are otherwise indistinguishable from each-other. None of these games can be streamed from the cloud, they are download only.

I believe Worms World Party and Worms Armageddon are their PAL versions but this isn't really noticeable. Note that the game's do support 16x9 screens in their options so go and change this and then activate "Wide Zoom" in the emulator's settings.

I believe all other PS1 games are their US NTSC versions.

Here's a full list of the classic PS1 games:

Ape Escape (US NTSC)
Hot Shots Golf (US NTSC)
I.Q. Intelligence Qube (US NTSC)
Jumping Flash! (US NTSC)
Mr. Driller (US NTSC) (subscription only)
Resident Evil Director's Cut (US NTSC) (subscription only)
Syphon Filter (US NTSC)
Tekken 2 (US NTSC) (subscription only)
Wild Arms (US NTSC)
Worms Armageddon (PAL version?, supports 16x9)
Worms World Party (PAL version?, supports 16x9)

"subscription only" games are only playable if you have the PS+ Premium (highest tier) subscription, you can't buy them a-la-carte or free upgrade with owning them on PS3/PSP/Vita, but you can do this with the other titles (I can mostly confirm for free upgrades, and all other titles have a "just buy them" price).

At the moment the only PSP game is echochrome.

For PS2 they are all technically PS4 games. All are purchaseable a-la-carte, but don't free upgrade from the PS3 digital versions. A few games are buggy on a PS5 with glitchy graphics, but you can bypass this by streaming these games from the cloud instead. Here's the full list:

Ape Escape 2 (buggy on PS5)
Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits
Dark Cloud
Dark Cloud 2
FantaVision
Hot Shots Tennis
Jak 3 (Download only)
Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (Download only)
Jak II (Download only)
Jak X: Combat Racing (Download only)
Kinetica
Okage Shadow King (buggy on PS5)
Primal (buggy on PS5)
Red Faction
Red Faction II
Rise of the Kasai (Download only)
Rogue Galaxy
Siren
Star Wars Bounty Hunter
Star Wars Jedi Starfighter
Star Wars Racer: Revenge
The Mark of Kri (Download only)
War of the Monsters (Download only)
Wild Arms 3

"Download only" games don't have an option to stream from the PS Cloud, but the other titles do.

univbee posted:

Did some more investigating. There is probably still work that will be done, because the PC app still lists a ton of games that are mis-tagged as "PS3" titles and aren't actually streamable currently. Whether that's enabling streaming or removing the titles from being visible in the PC app is still to be determined.

https://pastebin.com/bhVAPRjw

Here's the most complete list I could put together with everything that's available, including which games aren't streamable, although this might not be comprehensive so it's entirely possible I missed some games that aren't streamable.

univbee posted:

PS+ Premium news

Continuing the tradition of "doing unpaid work for Sony", here are some updates regarding PS+ Premium I was able to dig up.

Shadow Warrior 3 it seems is pretty certainly leaving the service today (in about an hour in North America).
Also leaving this month is the PS3 game Syberia, leaving July 19th.

The PC app for streaming appears to have been fixed, and now no longer shows games which aren't actually available for streaming. The retro header still says "PS1, PSP and PS2 games" despite only having PS2 games but whatever.

I have two lists of titles for North America:

Here's the list of all games on the service and I tagged the ones that aren't streamable (I think it's complete but I may have missed some) https://pastebin.com/bhVAPRjw

Here's the streaming-only game list https://pastebin.com/mADbm7pL

I'm having trouble using my DualShock 4 and/or DualSense with my PC

acksplode posted:

We're going to make this work. You can play wireless with ds4windows. It's typically used for tricking Windows into thinking a dualshock/sense is an Xbox controller, but it can also emulate a DS4 for times where that's convenient. The nice thing is that it still works over bluetooth. You can play PS5 games, and the touchpad works, but there's no rumble at all and none of the unique dualsense features work. Tested by playing Returnal for a bit.

Install the latest release at https://github.com/Ryochan7/DS4Windows/releases

Connect your dualsense to windows and then get ds4windows to recognize it. Guides can be found on google

Create a controller profile that has emulated controller (under the other tab) set to DS4 and then apply that profile to your controller. You might also need to check touchpad output to make sure it's pass thru instead of controlling the mouse.

Fire up remote play. It should recognize your emulated DS4 and just work.

Pee ahead of time, it's gonna be tempting to let er rip instead of getting out

bop bop perano posted:

I've found that the most reliable way to use a PS5 (and PS4) controller with Windows was to use one of these https://www.amazon.com/8Bitdo-Raspb...337897247&psc=1

Using the Dualsense with Steam wired works fine like every time, but I've always had terrible luck getting it to work with like Xbox Gamepass games, or some Epic Games Store games, but using that bluetooth dongle has worked literally every time I've tried it. And for all I know it doesn't even have to be that specific Bluetooth dongle, I just initially bought that one so I could use my dualshock with my switch and then found that it was particularly useful for getting playstation controllers to work with finnicky PC games.

edit: oh and I can confirm it works with Remote Play on PC, I somehow skipped over that when reading your post.

I'm having issues with slow download speeds, even though it's on wi-fi shouldn't things be way faster?

If you are using wifi go to your registered network and hit the options button. Set wifi frequency bands to 5ghz instead of automatic. That made everything download way faster for me.

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.

"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 successfully hook up to the PS5 will utilize the Tempest Engine to some degree, through the DualSense!

"anything else??????"

Don't skip Astro Bot! :blastu:

Just getting it out there now: the kind of posting that has been getting me down from the previous thread is not going to fly.

Be kinder to each other.

This does not mean forced positivity, just rethink how you are posting against each others points. :hai:

How about those 2 (TWO!) exclusive games revealed last night! That is a 200% increase!

Shiny new thread!

I think I forgot to mention this but I got the Inzone H7 and it's a quality headset. I think in terms of comfort and sound quality it's 9.5/10, just a hair below the Steelseries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless (10/10), while having the added benefit of doing the smooth transition that the Pulse 3D does, so if you turn it on and off it will automatically shift where audio is coming from on your PS5, whereas with the Steelseries the sound will always default to sending to the headphone receiver (it can't tell if the headset is on or not) and you have to manually shift to TV output in software.

Yeah what's up with that name now - I thought LAD would be for turn-based stuff.

its the translation of the japanese name for the series (and studio), they called it yakuza when it came over for western marketing but now how the series has gone and everything else with ishin, no real need to call it yakuza and they treated 7 as a reboot kind of thing.

8 is still turn based
gaiden and ishin are action based like the rest.

im betting 8's western name will be "like a dragon: subtitle" no number or anything

I have not watched the new Yakuza trailers, but is that an older Kiryu in the picture for 8? and is that him again in the Gaiden one?

I really do need to finish 2,3,4,5,6 and 7....

I wasn't too interested in Yakuza Ishin, but adding Kuze, Awano and Shibusawa has possibly swayed me...

Also, disappointed that Sony didn't announce a new Everybody's Golf game, since the online servers are shutting down next week

Rise of the Ronin sounds like Way of the Samurai and it's like they made a game just for me. I can hardly wait to see more details.

Yes! I need to add both Judgements to the list. I actually own, and have installed on my PS5, Y2-7. For the eventual playthroughs. 0 and K1 were so much wonderful fun.

I finished God of War 3.

Mixed feelings. It felt great to actually play; all the weapons feel good and the combat is way less mindless than I remember (after playing the first two on release). And I am down for a narrative where the protagonist is just an awful piece of poo poo who fails to learn or change. But midway through the game shifts to have Kratos be sorta protecting this little girl? and being powered by hope? and then in the end he sacrifices himself to release hope to the few humans left alive? And none of it works, none of it flows or feels convincing or earned, it's like one of those parts in the bible where scholars think this one paragraph was added a thousand years later.

Looked really good for a 2010 game. I mean I was playing the remaster, but the art direction was ace.
