    To be fair, there are very few PS5 games that have been designed purely for PS5 only. Off the top of my head, I can only think of R&C, Returnal and that DualSense Astro thingy.

    There are plenty of PS5 games in general though, more than A Plague Tale and whatever that Star War game was. For example, Metro Exodus has some fairly long load times (albeit improved over the excruciating load times of the PS4 version), that would've been an interesting test.

    Why would the paper bin be smelly.

    This is similar to what happened to me launch day with amazon. I tracked the van approaching, and opened my door and stood outside. The van paused and then drove off with the driver marking the package as delivered! B'stard driver stole my ps5! Fortunately amazon delivered a replacement the next day.

    Just replayed/finished until dawn. Still amazing 6 years later. :)

    I mean, I appreciate it was very much a minority of PS5's that were stolen on release day - but still amazes me people were willing to lose a job and potentially get a criminal record over a games console.
    There is no way Amazon (and the other retailers who had this issue) weren't able to track these "undelivered" deliveries to an exact driver.

    Has it had any enhancements on the PS5?

    It runs at a solid 60fps. If that counts I guess :p still looks good though !

    Wow @ the prices of the m2 ssds. I was looking to definitely increase the storage on my ps5 but those prices seem insane. I've never really looked at m2 ssds before so maybe they've always been that pricey but guess I'll be waiting a while longer.

    Prices have come down a lot but these are basically the fastest consumer-grade SSDs on the market beyond the really niche stuff, so there's always going to be a price premium involved. Goes without saying, don't buy one until you really need one.

    Thanks.

    No alerts came through on Telegram via stock informer.

    Mad that these are not simply on shelves yet.

    I'm playing Spiderman at the moment, got it on launch with the console but never got round to playing it. What a game! Loving it and very nice visuals as well.

    Although not a PS5 exclusive i'm enjoying TLOU2 on the PS5 with the increased framerate. my first play through also :eek:

    Thinking of picking up Returnal, looks a good looter / shooter with some challenging game play.

    Returnal is brilliant if you like roguelikes. Hard as nails at first but once you start upgrading things do get easier. I loved everything about it.

    Finally got a PS5 - non digital - (without a bundle) first thing this morning from Argos, but doesnt get to the store until Thursday, and just ordered R&C, Demon Souls and Sackboy for a little bit of variety. When Ive paid that lot off will get WRC9 and hopefully GoT.

    I hadnt realised how absurd some of the pricing is on games - and I dont mean the rrp which is bad enough, but some places (like Game) just adding £10 onto the std version of a game (and "cart" tricks - why dont we add an extra controller and charging station to your cart when you add the game.....just for your convenience of course)

    This is like the 5th PS5 I could have had over the past three weeks - had I been the scalping kind, that could easily have been £750 profit (or more importantly, my PS5 for free!).
    I tell ya - if you're in the UK and still saying "scalpers are getting them all" or "I just can't get one" - you aren't trying.
