    I oh i know people will still buy them. Most if not ALL my games are DISC and will be to the the day they do away with it. I currently only have Control, FF7R and Nioh2 installed on PS5 which take up less then 1 COD game, rest are all on my external drive.

    I like that we can store game on External drives now, but that just mean I need to get another external drive seeing current one for my ps4 collection, Transferring from external to internal and back is royal pain though

    I really hope prices of NVMe drive drop dramaticly as prices are rediulous and i just cant wait till the next set PC game start have a NMVe drive requirment

    Prices will drop because there will be demand, once Sony starts producing the PS5 in larger numbers. WD did branded PS4 SATA drives, so we will probably see something like that again.

    Microsoft took the easy route by only allowing Seagate NVME's to be compatable with the Series X. Sony has to test various models, speeds, and configurations.

    Wouldn't it be recommended to remove the sticker first on the M2 before attaching the thermal pad? I'd be surprised if the pre attached heatsinks still had the sticker on them. Personally that's what I'd do for maximum contact.

    Not sure when this system software came out as not had the machine on for a couple of days due to work:


    Beta 3.0-04.00.00.36-00.00.03.1.1

    Beta 2.0-04.00.00.31-00.00.02.1.1 (Previous)

    Installed fine but not noticed what the changes are yet as the link I have on the PS5 still takes me to the Beta 2 release notes. Needing to head out so will look more later.

    A small beta system update for anyone who is interested :

    Beta 3.1-04.00.01.36-00.00.03.1.1

    Beta 3.0-04.00.00.36-00.00.03.1.1

    Beta 2.0-04.00.00.31-00.00.02.1.1

    Since the Nvidia Geforce drivers I've always wondered what the numbers represent to changes, would be interesting.

    I'm about to try this now. I know it still will not compare to pc but it will be fun to do an image check.

    ^^Well two things, i can now play this without it sounding like i am sitting in a wind tunnel with my Pro, which really put me off the game itt was so loud you could swear the fan was going to crack and break, but now i am on the PS5 that issue is gone at last, it is now nice to sit playing PS games without that WHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!..... secondly, loading times are way better.

    ^^^So basically while sitting not really doing anything it produces more heat, so what kind of heat will it produce pushing a RT game or 4k and 60fps?

    I’d wait for some real testing with thermocouples attached to key components before drawing any conclusions.

    You can’t just point thermal cameras at things and claim it’s worse without knowing the actual temperatures of components.

    Is this increased heat for the Digital version or the disc one?

    ^^^^I would assume all models produced now will have this configuration be it digital or disc.

    It's only for the digital version.
