    Welcome to the party, grab the controller, press the on button, play the game......and as a added bonus you did not need to go through the divorce courts because you bought a new family holiday priced nvidia graphics card. Lol

    I've had more problems with my console than I've had with PC gaming.

    I know this is a PS5 thread but I'll have a moan anyway. Basically the Series S updates the firmware probably once a week. What it's downloading I have no clue. It freezes on the boot up screen sometimes too. Trying to manually install the firmware again via USB gives an install error every time. This is normal according to the MS knowledge base.

    What are your issues? My console experience has been very smooth. For both PS5 and Series X. Although I will admit the Series X hasn't had a lot of usage lately so if there's a recent bug out there, I'm not aware of it.

    My series X doesn`t seem to exhibit that kind of behavior.



    My console has an hard time reading some game disks and i have no idea if the problem is of the console or if it`s because the disks are the issue.

    It`s the first time something like this has ever happened despite all the consoles i already bought before...

    Got it off eBay, so probably cursed. There is something loose inside, but it works as expected.

    Just spent a few hours on the free PS5 Fallout 4 upgrade, and it is stunning, i am running at 1440p 60fps and it is as smooth as silk, and everything is do sharp and vibrant, and it all just pops out at you, a very nice and welcome free upgrade for F4 owners..........so happy i just started a new game as it also give you PS5 trophies to unlock.

    Will try the Series console versions tomorrow, but after seeing what Bethesday did here, i have no worries. :)

    I've another issue that I've passed on to MS. This involves the firmware updating of the controller. Opening the app shows no updates available but if I press on that box it bring up a screen that allows me to update regardless, I can do this as many time as I want and nothing seems to change with the firmware number. Kind of lazy.

    DF has a new video where they claim these are the specs for the Pro. A bit different from what MLID claimed.

    1. 30 WGPs = 60 Active CUs
    2. Configuration: 2 SEs/ 4 SAs (8-7 8-7)
    2. 2.35 Ghz Max Boost Clock
    3. GL2 Cache =4MB (Same as PS5)
    4. GL1 Cache =256kb (PS5 =128kb)
    5. GL0V Cache = 32kb (PS5 = 16kb) "Sony Specifically says this increase is to allow for better RT performance"
    6. Extra VRS features above DX12 = Subpixel rasterization offset MSAA
    7. PS5 Pro devkit looks identical to PS5 devkit

    (CPU?) clock speed is way too low for 4K 120FPS.

    Thats the gpu clock, its basically a lower clocked 7800XT

    CPU clock is 3.85ghz

    Should be fine for 4K 60 with low ray tracing

    Bloody hell! The PS5 outsold the Series consoles 5:1 in the last quarter.
