    Is that you Paul Nuttall?

    India is a huge potential growth market. It makes sense to get a foothold into that market.

    Also why do you consider Indians to be less worthy of PS5s than you?

    Nice bit of casual racism there.

    :) everyone taking the post like it was serious. But seriously it would be lovely if they could get stock sometime soon. Looking forward to getting my hands on one.

    Edit. Plus selectively quoting the first post when the second post makes it even more obvious it wasn't serious.

    Why don't you go over there and take them all back like your ancestors?

    Er, people quoted the entire post. Thatís not selectively quoting. If you want to do ironic racism on the internet and have people be able to tell it apart from the real stuff, youíll need to finesse it a little more. And then be prepared that people still wonít get it.

    Historically speaking for PS5 stock, that will be a 5 minute window somewhere between 00:01 tonight and 31st July 2021.

    You weren't pressing F5.5? That explains it.

    I do the same.

    Iím assuming Sony are holding off until they can deliver millions of units all at once rather than drip feeding stock that would just vanish to scalpers immediately
    I'm really hoping this is the case. It does make perfect sense to negate the scalpers, and effectively make the stock that they hold worth less than retail value (why buy from them at even retail when you can buy with confidence elsewhere).

    Otherwise - it will be down to /good timing/luck/fastest reflexes/most reliable internet connection first.

    Anyone else with one not massively impressed with it?
    The controller is nice but the System OS still feels like itís in beta, Iíve only switched it on 4/5 times since launch

    The fact they have reshuffled their resources so early into the PS5's life probably suggests they are still struggling behind the scenes to produce them fast enough. Timing has just been unfortunate really, if it had come out the year before it probably would have been way smoother.

    I wonder when the next firmware update is going to land.

    I love a good firmware update I does.

    I love it. But the day they nuke that god-awful store from orbit should be considered for a national holiday or something.

    Only reason Iíve kept it is Iíve still got my PSVR and sold my pro to fund the 5, Iíve yet to even hook the VR up to it though

    PS5 is clearly a step up from my launch PS4 but it is not exactly a revelation, more of a refinement.
    (Although the dodgy rest mode is a big worry).

    yeah, games crashing and sending off error reports when you boot back up is a pain in the hole. How many reports do they need? Good thing loading back into games is quick.

    What's the dodgy rest mode? I use it all the time and haven't noticed any problems.

    Bit of drama this morning - my son left the USB dongle for his PS5 Pulse headset next to his PS5 and our dog decided to grab it and chew it up (she seems to have a predilection for USB sticks - she's chewed two cheap memory sticks in the past!).

    No biggie we thought - just ring PlayStation UK and to purchase a replacement dongle expecting it to be in the £20 range only to find out they don't sell them and have no way of supplying a replacement.

    In fact, the customer rep just put the phone down on us.

    So that's a £90 headset down the drain? Are there compatible adaptors out there that would work?

    Times like this you wish Major Nelson worked for Sony - is there an equivalent for PlayStation that would take a look at this?

    Mine seems to crash if left in rest mode for more than 24 hours.

    My Sky Q box seems to crash alongside it most times too. So think it might be caused by a supply power fluctuation.

    @mwd2000 Suspect you're out of luck. Nintendo got away with worse for years on Wii-U gamepads. You could check eBay and the like to see if anybody's selling a dongle on its own, I guess? Always possible somebody had the headset break while their dongle was just fine.

    Ps5 is a lovely machine, have used it loads so far. 20ish hrs on myles morales, 4 on Astros playroom, 6/7 on demon souls, 27hrs on fenyx rising.

    Short load times, greatvgraphics capability on those that take advantage of it.

    Just need more games, seems like there is to be a dearth of software for it for a good while longer. 1 new game every 2 or 3 months is fairly meh, but is usually the case for a new gene first year.

    @DakeyrasUK Yeah, a new console and a global pandemic doesn't make for a fast release cycle. But this is where back compatibility and the PS+ collection come into their own.

    I'm seriously impressed with mine. Ghosts of Tsushima and Fallen Order next gen updates have been incredible. Maybe if you play every game that comes out then it doesn't seem as special? I've still got Control Ultimate to look forward to when the next gen update is up and Cyberpunk.

    @Roguewon thanks - yeah, I'll setup an Ebay alert.

    Could also sell his current dongle-less headset on Ebay (obviously advertised as such) and buy him a new one.

    Just crazy that you can't buy or order a replacement - dongles are so easily lost/broken.
