Who do I need to speak to, to have my PSN ID shared on the first page? I don't have many buddies at the moment (just @syrian_scholes ) so it would be ace to have a few more!

Amazon stock at the moment mate and expected for Argos etc this week too.
Thank, yeah I got the disk version and just want to grab a digital one too.

I’m not keeping them though, one for my nephew and bredrin. I’ll wait until Uncharted or God of War comes out.

Enjoying the Switch with my Mrs too much right now

Has anyone experienced anything resembling this issue ? I think the new dual sense is very good but personally I do feel that with time the durability of the controller will give in compared to the more robust DS4.

There's something about the feel of the controller that it's not entirely a quality product.

I think the complete opposite. It feels like a solid, heavy, premium product.

OG DS4 were terrible. Later ones are good.

No clue about Dual Sense but they're complicated controllers

Anyone know the last time the Official DS charging station was in stock somewhere in the UK?

Are you looking for one as well?
Aye! Not an urgent purchase though, the battery life seems to last long enough on the Dualsense and I just leave it charging overnight via usb with the PS5 in rest mode.

They've been occasionally dropping but selling out within the hour, just like the PS5 itself, not sure why demand is so crazy for them...

In the end, I got fed up of having to plug charge my controller every 3-4 days (PS5 is about 3 metres away, and I don't keep it in rest mode), so I bought one sealed and new on eBay for £30, which is near enough the same price to have one delivered from Argos etc.

Anyone played Tekken 7? It's on the store for 3.99 at the moment. Not normally not a fighting game fan, but at that price, it's probably worth a go.


In regards to the Dual Sense, thankfully I haven't had any trouble so far. I do wonder how long it's going to last though with all the stuff they have going on inside it. Not sure it's going to be as durable as the DualShock 4. I do disagree with the one poster in here though, as I feel like the controller is very premium. Feels great in the hand and has a good heft to it which is something the DualShock didn't have, and that one DID feel a little cheap.

I agree with this actually, it's an improvement on the DS4 in every way.

That being said I did have one break and still haven't had a fix or replacement sent, indicates they are getting a fair few back.

@BusbyMalone if you're into competitive play it's amazing. I've since quite due to, erm, being a bad loser, but it's a fantastic game.

Not worth it for single player though. The story is absolute rubbish even by Tekken's low standards.
Ahh, that's a shame. Probably be the only reason why It bought it, to be honest. I'm rubbish at them so going online would be a waste of time for me.

Well for 4 quid even the offline is worth it perhaps. Just most of the games' nuance is lost when fighting ai. It's not that hard to become sort of proficient though, just takes a bit of practice :)

Yeah for 3.99 I guess it's worth giving it a go. I have played some fighting games online. I played Dragon Ball Fighterz and Mortal Kombat 11 a little bit. What I always find with them though, is that I start off ok, I pick things up quickly and think I'm doing good, and then I rank up and that's it. You come up against people who are on another level and there's just no in-between. I'm just getting absolutely ruined :lol:

So I just stop playing at that point.

I wonder how it runs on the Xbox Series X oh wait no exclusives can't run it what a shame
Spanner, I have already given you a warning, so now read this rule very carefully.

This thread is to discuss the PlayStation 5 and its games only. Go to the Xbox Series X thread if you wish to discuss that console, and if you wish to compare the two/console war, go to the PS5 vs Xbox Series X thread.
Don’t make me tag Raoul in here. He’s already given a dressing down to @horsechoker and @esmufc07 because they were stealing my posts. He will have no problem doing the same to you because we are tennis buddies. You wouldn’t understand that because you’d never seen a tennis court in your life. So consider this your last warning. Thank you very much.

I was in the queue for an hour on Game and when I went to pay, my bundle had sold out.

Fortunately I found a link to jump the queue to a disc version with Spider Man MM Ultimate for £512 so I snapped that up. Never had much interest in Spiderman. Worth playing or will I get a decent price flogging it?

Yeah, and I will call Gaelic football shit, but it's still irrelevant to this thread. I don't make the thread rules.
But it's your job...
I presumed everyone who wanted one has got one by now.

Both are very good games, so play them.

What about PlayStation games on PC? A whole slate of them is on the way starting with Days Gone this spring. And as for Sony’s publishing timetable for the year? Well, Covid has been up to no good again and booted Gran Turismo 7back to 2022. Don’t worry, plans for the Uncharted movie and Last Of Us TV series are very much on track.

Unlucky @esmufc07 you about to lose a whole slate of exclusives.
