    This is less of a problem than its being made out to be.

    1. The battery is replaceable, easily enough.
    2. PSN itself does not have a hosted time server, they are using generic POST http for time data and they've used the same dns and query since ps3 days @ scei-0.auth.np.ac.playstation.net using a hardcoded login for the query.

    the query itself is device agnostic.

    To solve my issue I just bought 2nd controller with 3 year protection plan so I will have 2 controllers and replace one currently I have issue with under that in few months time ( sony say dual sense have 90 day warranty but site B&H said it year warranty), if I did not manage to fix issue with popping the R1 button out and apply a dab of machine oil used for electric shavers blades on spring I saw on R2 button, since I did that it been working correctly, I will use protection plan on controllers just bought to replace said controller.

    In the end I can use 2nd dual sense for my PC or I can my DS4 contolers for my PC, Just gona have to get Bluetooth adaptor for my that is 1.0 at some point.

    I personally use it every day and don't really have any problems with it. I've also had situations where I've been away from a game that the PS5 sets itself in Rest mode with the game running and I've not had issues starting the console and instantly getting back to the game.

    Yeah, I've had rest mode going since my last post and it seems to be going fine. I did read on a YouTube channel's comments that doing a database rebuild while having an external storage could corrupt the external storage. I'm wondering if after the system update this month a database rebuild was carried out and that's how I lost my PS4 games. Apparently from what they say (if game is showing as installed but will not start) disconnecting the external storage, start downloading the game again and pause at 1%, connect external storage back up and it will tell you you have two versions of the game prompting you to delete one, that being the one at 1%. This from what I understand will correct the broken game link on the external storage back to the PS5. I didn't get a chance to try this unfortunately but was just wondering as this would save loads of time.

    There is Database rebuild with ever System update. and I have had my External T5 attach threw 2 of them at this point no issues.

    People been saying have External Drive connected during Update will cause issue since Ps4, Update at this point on (ps5) say if there disc or external drive connected, Do not remove it during the updates

    I got a system update today but the patch notes are vague, only says "improves system performance".

    Inspiration from their passed game Resogun. I played that game for many hours.

    4K 60FPS. ;)

    Resogun was amazing I threw many hours at that too.

    I am amazing that Returnal is 4k60 and RT though, I do love concept of make your death part of story though.

    If they throw an demo out for I will download to see if i can get past shooter gameplay.

    I ignored ME series cause it was that type of game "even" if it had RPG "elements" I got 1 and 2 and played them both but could never get past gameplay

    Impressive not so much with the 1080p upscaling being done 4k with certain stuff, impressed none the less.

    It also getting praise from some one the plays everything on the PC and avoids consoles

    Nah, the first game that would make PS5 purchase justifiable is this one:

    did DF say it was justifiable ps5 purchase? dont remember.

    Honestly neither are my cup of tea, Graphics dont sell game to , RT is and will be GREAT when it hit on performance becomes negligible, but hit isnt worth. I RT is one reason why game "assets" size were to reduce and and such reduce game sizes?

    Honesly most game size are ballooning still

    What has DF, game size or RT to do with anything of what I wrote? I don't get it. Insomniacs do very well polished AAA games with fun gameplay. The fact that their games are very well made from technological side is only a nice icing on the cake. And honestly, DF is full of crap. Half of things they say is pure guessing and assumption based on their limited experiences.

    My point was Graphics are not selling point to me. And Niether are my type of game and this RT stuff also means nothing to me.

    People swear by the Uncharted games which also arnt cup of tea so there tech feats and grahics and other wise dont mean anything to me either Never like Ratchet and clank.. it all in the eye of beholder.
