Only my 3rd, a very good fun game
Congrats! Yea its a shockingly fun game, I thought it would be tech demo that I would mess around in for 10 mins. But im still playing it instead of Spiderman!


10th Platinum overall and my first on PS5. Enjoyed that. Really easy to 100%
Congrats!


Astro is my first plat ever. I have never even tried to get one before, but I just found the entire game a delight and wanted to finish it 100%. The trigger for the final achivment crashed my game and I didn't get a screenshot or video :(

Ghost of Tsushima on sale in the black Friday deals on PS store.

£39.05 I think. Also doom eternal for £18.

Must resist spending more money on games I'll not get time to play

I wouldn't say it's being overlooked as such, but isn't it a full paid game? Astro comes free so everyone gets to experience it. Think sackboy will get more love Inna few months when it gets a price drop.
Obviously everyone can play Astro so understandably everyone is talking about it. I'm not taking about the Caf either. I get people have priorised other games at launch. I'm taking more about your IGN, Gamespot etc. They haven't even given it a video review.

I said the same thing to my brother last night. If it was called Mario's Big Adventure, everyone would be talking about it.

It's a shame it is seemingly being overlooked at launch because it truly is excellent, I hope if it has received poor sales that doesn't impact any future Sackboy games in this vein.

Also everyone needs to play it just to experience the soundtrack and the levels curated to an individual song and way it's all coordinated.

Its very expensive for a platformer. Crash 4 had similar issues after launching at a much higher price than the N.Sane trilogy

Don’t know who he is, but apparently famous. Maybe @horsechoker might know as he watches a lot of TV.

I’ve already sold my PS4 :lol: as I say it’s no major issue as I have no rush to play them, but just a tad annoying.

Not had any issues with rest mode, but I’m tending to just turn it off completely as it’s so quick to power up and boot a game up.

Few teething problems as you say which is annoying but hopefully Sony patch these up soon.
Aaah I was so close to beating your astro time just over 47.

Anyone got demon's souls and can help me out with something? I need to turn world 3 tendency to pure white and I need someone to invade me a few times and let me kill them there.

Holy shit that's fast, I thought this video was fake but the world leader is on something like 18 seconds. I've never done any speed run in less than 41 seconds




If anyone wants to add me on PSN it's Tiber-UK

I would rather not admit how many attempts this took, but proud of this score



By far the hardest of the suits

Platinumed Astro. Great game. Even got 100% on the extras with under 7 mins on the time trials.

Wasn’t there talk of Sony adding the ability to make groups so you can share videos, etc into groups/parties? Maybe we can make a cafe one once that is available/if it is?

This console is insane, has a notification about Astro bot, from a cold menu i pressed the play button to play the speed challenge, within about 8 seconds the game was counting down for me to start my speed run to reclaim top spot.

Just changed to bugsnax and about 10 seconds later I’m in the game.

I am loving the PS5 app, by the way. I set the PS5 to rest mode and had to go out the house for a couple of hours. I went onto the app and hit download on Persona 5. Within 15 mins my phone popped up a message reading, "Persona 5 is now ready to play".

That's some serious s**t.

For anyone interested:

The Last of Us Remastered has been patched for PS5 and has a 1800p/targeted 60fps mode that's smooth as hell and looks fantastic. Just saying.

Nice!!! I wonder if anybody still plays the multiplayer.

Whats the plan for TLOU2?

And the other games on the PS Collection? Should I wait in hope for a God of War patch incase one comes?

Didn't GoW get a 60fps patch already? I think it's 60fps at 1080p, though. There's a 4k/30, which looks stunning.

That was for the Pro right? I'm sure they could get it to hit 4k/60 or at least dynamic 1440p+

Finished Uncharted 4 in just over two days. Time for god of war! Switching from Xbox means I am loving the ps plus collection.

Surely a 4k patch at some point

So @Alock1 @Bojan11 @Redlambs and any others who have both consoles what do you make of them both and which one do you prefer?
I’ve only got the PS5 but my brother has both consoles and so far he prefers the PS5 over the XSX but it’s early days as the PS5 has only been out for 3 days and after a week or even a month he might change his mind and say the XSX is what he prefers.

People still looking for consoles should try Shpock, use PayPal to be covered under the consumer protection stuff. Seen a few sold for only £50 over RRP so 500.
