    I was expecting a redesigned console instead of a simply smaller one, so i´ll also stick to my Normal PS5.

    But the build quality of my PS5 is leaving me with a bad taste, i already replaced a controller, due to ghost drift, and now the console is having problems recognizing the discs inserted...

    And to think i used and abused my PS4 during 6/8 without any issues like this...

    I think system quality is much better then the ps4/pro the minimized coil whine great.

    the controller on the other hand shitty quality imo, been threw 3 so far. and i treat my ps5 controller better then my ps4/ps3/ps2, etc controller that original controllers still, it reason why i did not buy the edge controller, other the fact i not pay 200$ for controller with non hallsticks

    Funny that when i did have the phat ps5 i switched off the haptic feedback after about 30 mins because i was 100% sure i was going to break it, as it just did not feel sturdy enough to be fighting against my fingers.

    Never used PS Comunities and never had a Twitter account, but I'm sure some will be devastated.

    i haptic triggers is disable from day one the sliding grind i heard when it was active was enough to make me turn it off, it also made me think something was broke or would break, first controller trigger(r) broke within a months 2nd two had drifting with in 3 months,

    consider cost of controllers now that stuff should not be happen, let alone in less then year or 3 months for that matter right my current controller is fine and is going on a year *knock on wood*

    I can't believe they are charging 30€ for that silly plastic stand. Especially now that all consoles seem to be primarily designed to be standing vertically. But perhaps stand is no longer required and is more optional? My OG PS5 Digital clearly said in the manual stand is required for stability and cooling, so not sure how it is with this new revision.

    My Controller is now “blocked” to left side all the time- meaning that when I’m playing my character goes to the left all the time, is this what is called “drifting” ? Now sure it can be fixed, so will have to buy a new one. So poor quality in these PS5 controllers! I still have my ps4 and ps3 ones and they still work.

    EDIT: what is the best PS5 controller out atm? currently researching...

    I thought the standard build quality of Sony controller is very good. But I never used mine much.

    Scuf makes a Pro PS5 controller that looks rather nice, although I cannot speak for it's build quality as I have not used it myself.

    There are replacement analogues on eBay but it requires resoldering.
