    Fwiw I've started adding them all even if I'm not interested, incase I change my kind or the kids want to try it at a later date.

    I'm away in tenerife at the minute but only have a few days holiday left. I know I've got about 30% of deathloop left when I get back and can't decide what to play next. I fancy far cry 6 but will wait for the inevitable price drop. I did pre order monkeyball but that will be a game I dip in and out of as its more arcade based. I may go back to the Division 2 as I picked it up for less than a fiver some time ago and was enjoying it but got distracted by other games.

    Ninja edit... I just remembered I bought curse of the dead gods to play after hades when it was on sale and its still in my backlog of shame, so that is me sorted for a month or so.

    I don't work for the store, I'm here to ensure you follow the rules that you agreed to when you signed up. Simple.

    My apologies, I should have checked to see if OCUK sold the same drive, though does it really count as a competitor if you're pricing it 46% higher :p?

    Thanks (also thanks @Raymond Lin ).
    Just bought 12 mth sub for £43 from cd keys which equates to £3.58 per mth, half of the £6.99 I signed up at.

    Any word on 1440p support for the PS5 ?

    I think if it was coming it would be in the current beta. Sony sell 4k tv's they will want the chance to sell some of those to people with 1440p screens.

    Anyone having a issue with display connection dropping out? Happened a few times in about 2 hours of use after the latest FW (just at 1080)

    1440 would be nice

    Can anyone recall if Sony do Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals for PS Now and PS Plus? I'm thinking of subbing to PS Now again but would be nice to get it cheaper, of course. :p

    They do yes. Typically though it just brings it down to about the same price you can get it through cards anyway.

    Yeah the lack of 1440p is the only thing that would drive me to Xbox. It’s pretty poor tbh, needs sorting.

    Finally managed to bag some stock and my PS5 disk version + spiderman MM + controller bundle arrived from Game yesterday.

    First impressions are pretty good, controller is far, far, better than the PS4 and moving saves and games from PS4 was a breeze.

    Spiderman played and looked great, also paid the £5 for death stranding upgrade which seems a great deal. Keen to get back to that as I felt sometimes the PS4 struggled. Need a 4k hdr TV upgrade now though

    Probably due to not enough demand ?

    How bad is it just having 500gb on these consoles. I don't get much gaming time so I usually play one or two games at a time, will that be fine or do I seriously need to look into investing into more storage?

    It's 600+ though can't remember the exact amount. Not a problem for me as I never need more than 3 at a time generally.

    Exactly this - it's a really low percentage of people who need this resolution. Sony's development time/money is better spent on features that a significant percentage of people would benefit from.
