    It's free until June 17th. After that so long as you pay for PS+ it's still free.

    hmm did not realize PS5 can out put 4k@60 with hdr in rgb mode, it reduce it self to 4:2:2 on 2.0b hdmi tv it will out put it rgb mode if hdr is disable. not that see diffrence i think most game look better with hdr on always anyway special in old game that didnt have hdr.

    I was gona get Bluetooth headphones just for my ps5 just to realize it wont connect to bluetooth less it has usb dongle, cause apparntly sony is like roku, dont support bluetooth but only for 1st party devices as far as audio goes. was gona get 3d pulse but that thing has worse battery life then my RS 175 has, then again the 3d pulse probably last longer then dual sense contoler? i get 8-9 hours out controller before it says low power? and another hour or so after that before it shuts off.

    For those that have 3d pluse headset? is it worth 100$ spent for it? most gaming is done threw RS175 headphones i have, depsite it going threw wireless and battery charges ever few days

    I'd go for the Sony Pulse headphones. Excellent audio/3D stereo.

    I didn't like 5 as much , 4 was a was basicly the final part, where 1, 2 and 3 were intwined to the whole story. It had crazy epic moments, which i have never ever seen in any other game so far.

    MGS5 was ok, like most MGS i beat and enver touched it again, but 5 i actual kept playing long after i finished it mostly cause online part was not fan of them changing snake voice but it made sense to point after seeing the story, and back story on oclot was pretty good still was clust frack to keep track of all "snakes" "big boss" and what have never mind other parts story.

    Still play from time to time

    True. But it's still a very cool project.
    And the results with temperatures are very impressive.

    So I got myself a PS5 last week, the disc version. Walked into my local Game store (UK high street retailer) and picked one up, they had loads in stock, all kinds of bundles for both the disc and digital versions of the console.

    I went with the base, no game bundle disc version at £449, knowing that the new PS Plus is coming. I also bought a 1TB WD SN850 NVME stick to expand the storage because the stock PS5 storage is laughable. Got a decent deal on this at £124 off of Amazon, possibly the cheapest NVME stick with a heatsink on the market right now, reported 6600mb/s read after formatting on the PS5.

    Have to say, I'm f*cking impressed with this thing. I now have around 25 games installed and I didn't buy any of them (all through PS Plus / EA Play which I got for £19.99 for a year because I was gagging to play NHL seeing as they've been missing on PC for like 10 years now).

    The games I have installed and tested, just to name a few

    1. God of War
    2. Spider-Man Remastered
    3. Miles Morales
    4. Assassin's Creed Valhalla
    5. Assetto Corsa Competizione
    6. Death Stranding
    7. Fall Guys
    8. Red Dead Redemption 2
    9. World Tour Tennis 2
    10. Returnal
    11. Hollow Knight
    12. FIFA 22 (will be uninstalling, was a curiosity install, the game sucks)
    13. NBA 2K22
    14. Demon's Souls
    15. Trials Rising
    16. Bloodborne
    17. NHL 22
    18. inFAMOUS Second Son (my BiS PS4 game)
    19. Ghost of Tsushima
    20. South Park The Fractured But Whole
    21. Shadow of the Colossus
    22. Dead Cells
    23. Steep
    24. Guardians of the Galaxy
    25. Detroit Become Human

    Honestly, while PS Plus has a long way to go, that's not too bad for a tenner a month. Some of the games look absolutely amazing on the LG OLED, namely Demon's Souls and Spider-Man. Also God of War, Returnal and many others, to be fair. Some of these I've played on the PC on the Samsung Odyssey G9 but seeing these games on the OLED TV is something completely different. Stunning.

    I'm quite happy with the games available on the PS5, just need to get Gran Turismo 7 and Ratchet & Clank and I'm pretty much all set. I'll be sifting through Facebook marketplace, should be able to get both of these for around £50. Oh, maybe Elder Ring, but that's on a back burner. I hope PS Plus keeps improving, I hope we see more games, I hope we see all the PS3 games being downloadable. Also, major in house releases will hopefully be a day one on PS Plus, like they tend to be on GamePass.

    So, plenty of games to play, fresh experience, enjoying it, really. Spider-Man is a great game but kinda in two ways about it so far, the story seems a bit on the weak side and there's a lot of fluff dotted around the city but that's ok in a game like this, I guess, the combat and web slinging are spot on though, they make the game so fun.

    One thing I struggle to understand though is how come Game have all these consoles just sitting in their stores, ready to be bought, when the rest of the country has no stock. Crazy.
