    Am I correct in finding the ďhold the PS button for a second to bring up the Rest Mode optionĒ functionality isnít in there?
    Itís a bit odd to have to press it, move down and then all the way across for such a main function but maybe Iím being a twonk.

    @mothercruncher Yeah, that's the main thing I miss from the PS3/PS4 UI.

    I'd find it a lot better if I could swap the short and long press functionality.

    Prefer the PS4 button, the PS5 one feels rubbery and weird to touch.

    Once you're used to it, it makes more sense for the quick menu to be under a quick press.

    I agree with both points that making the Rest / Shutdown options harder to reach is annoying and that the PS5 button just doesn't feel right

    Im not a fan of the way short/long press works either.

    Personal preference after using for a while would be quick press brings up quick menu but instead of first card being highlighted, default to home.

    Then a long press should be power, close app, profile options.

    Actually, do away with the damn cards altogether 🤣🤣

    I don't mind the long/short press flip, I'm already used to the new way. What I don't like is how much harder it is to find the PS button on the Dualsense. I still have to actually look at it quite often, which is controller fail in my eyes.

    Yeah, I've used them in Astro, Sackboy and Spider-man, though Astro has the best implementation of them and I didn't get the same thing I was looking for from the other 2.
    But I don't feel like they're in my way. If I don't want to use them they haven't interfered or anything.

    How about the console!? :).

    First thing I'll be listening out for is this coil whine that seems pretty common. I wonder if any of the slight hardware issues have been fixed for the next batch.

    I cannot hear my PS5 at all. (Although I am often deaf to high pitch sounds, so I might just not be able to hear it).

    As I mentioned before Rest mode on mine is flaky and often crashes so tend to just switch it off now. (Which has the secondary issue of the controller not charging and as the front USB doesn't work the cable is too short to charge whilst playing when using the back USB. And yes I have selected the charge option in the menu).

    Controller is lovely but the white colour and rough texture collects and shows up dirt on the underside. (And yes I know what this dirt actually is).

    I'm confused by all the people saying rest mode takes longer, you know the quick menu loops around if you go the opposite way? Go left on the quick menu instead of right.

    It remembers where you were last though, which might be somewhere in the middle. It's definitely not quite as quick, but it's fine for me.

    I think I've probably wasted about 17 seconds of my life so far due to the change. It's not really acceptable imo.

    It's a real shame $ony didn't install something into the console that makes games load way quicker and almost completely reduce idle time to make that massive time deficit you mentioned more acceptable.

    Got an email from Smyths to say my charging station is ready for despatch and to click the link for tracking info. I click it and the fucking Yodel page opens :(

    Glad itĎs not just me! I keep unmuting the mic instead. The PS button is in an awkward position and too flimsy. Itís the only dual sense complaint I have, though.

    @Slurmseh It was just that... rumours.
    I'm hoping that the theory holds true, that Sony are waiting until they have enough stock that they can release a batch that won't be snapped up in seconds.

    Iíve been getting the warble sound these past couple of days after it spins the drive up. Not every time, but twice now. It seems disc dependent and for me itís the Judgment disc. Itís a horrible sound. Have to put the console to sleep, ejecting the disc predictably closes the game.

    No problems with sleep at all, luckily, or any other issues people have been talking about.

    I've had that horrible sound from one or two digital PSN games. Not the coil whine, sounds like something else entirely, it's like a cat in season. There's definitely something funny going on under the hood for a very small fraction of games.

    So far mine's been sound.

    It sits inside my TV unit with the door closed, so I never hear (even when I've put my ear to the console) or see it. A couple of games have crashed but that's nothing out of the ordinary, though I did have a controller turn off and not reconnect immediately once.

    I use the controller charge station so no idea if I have USB charging issues on the console.

    Took me about a week to get used to the new UI interactions and I've not really thought about them since. Constantly got around 10 games installed with a small amount of space remaining.

    It's all just working.
