    My friend, who doesn't go to any forums, less of a geek than me, managed to get a PS5 last weekend from Very. It can't be that difficult now. I mean using this thread when someone mentioned Amazon I managed to add one to cart, go all the way to the last step in the checkout without it crashing one me like it used to. I think the demands has dropped judging from the site not dying anymore.

    I lost a couple of saves, I got rid of my PS4 pro before the ps5 arrived. The auto upload to the cloud on the PS4Pro/PsPlus didn’t work even though I asked it to do it automatically.

    I moved mine via usb stick, later I did check my cloud saves out of curiosity and noticed they were not up to date and like you it was enabled for auto sync. Not good sign moving forward given on ps5 saves usb is now not an option.

    Same with mine (digital model) I got through the MM. Effectively silent in normal operation but side by side it is louder than the X (although you need to be pretty close to hear either in a normal gaming environment). I was genuinely surprised by how big it is though (something something, that’s what she said) and I really want to switch out the side plates for black ones.

    All of that said really enjoying SOTR and Astro boy atm. Got GoW and uncharted on the lost next. :)

    Really enjoyed GoW and Horizon, GoW looks and plays great with its 60fps update and I wanted to wait for Horizon to get the same treatment but got bored waiting.

    I finally managed to grab a ps5 from the BT shop. I signed up and they sent me a code.

    The only annoying bit so far is transfering data from my ps4 pro. I could do it via wifi but I'm thinking thats going to take a while so I ordered a new ethernet cable.

    The menus are going to take some getting used to. They are different but familiar.

    Still available if anyone wants the code. I'll donate it to twitter in a few hours if no one wants it here

    You'd need to check with the manufacturer. I've had two NVMe SSDs and never needed firmware updates for either of them so it's probably not something you need to worry about.

    Didn't think NVMEs needed firmware updates.

    They do. Had Samsung's in the past that needed flashing, they still retained all data.

    I too have two SSDs. No, wait three! And I've updated firmware on all them - 1x Toshiba, 2x Samsung. So it is a thing.

    If the SSD performs to spec, exceeds the performance of the internal Sony SSD then I would be inclined to leave it as is. If it aren't broke and all that.

    I put my SN850 in my PC to update the firmware ready for when I can finally install it in my PS5.
