    Bloody old tech holding new tech back. And to think it's still about the most faff-less VR around.

    I got the V2 headset and my TV does support 120fps but not at 4k, so I'm good. Still haven't used VR with PS5 yet though. I really should but there's too much new shiny.

    As long as the new one doesn't have that break out box, I'll be happy. I packed away my PS4Pro, tidied everything then set up the PS5 a few days later my son turns round and says "Can I play VR?"

    Now I have to get the bloody breakout box for it.

    /shit on it

    They've already confirmed that it only uses a single cable, which would suggest it just plugs directly into the PS5. Also, before PS5 launched they had boasted it's "VR Ready" suggesting that no extra box would be required.

    Surely it'll just use the front USB-C port?

    I donít understand why they bunged those in the very middle of the console. I guess itís so you can plug the vr umbilical cord in the middle, matrix style.

    @ChiefGB You clearly do understand why. 😁

    The current article on their website says youíre supposed to use the usb-c port on the front for the external hdd. I ignored that, didnít want to have a stupid cable sticking out of it from the get go and my hdd works fine plugged in the back. But itís perfectly positioned for VR.

    Chill out, surely you're gonna put your VR headset away at times so plugging in the front is easy and quick?

    Tomorrow's Show should hopefully confirm the release date of Kena: Bridge of Spirits.

    Game looked incredible last year in the 'not E3' event.

    Hopefully it plays as well as it looks!

    So, I'm in Rest mode. Bought a game at work and triggered the download, it's stuck on Waiting. Is this the "Rebuild Database" fix?

    The app is never 100% accurate from my experience. I've had it read as 'waiting' even when it's definitely downloading. It also takes forever to update, so if you're sat waiting for it to change I'd come back and have a look in a while.

    Yeah checked the website as well, same message. I tried it yesterday with another game, it only started when I switched on the PS5, it was in Rest mode. Which points towards some setting perhaps? Or the rebuild chuff.

    I think there may be a setting on the PS5 to allow downloads in rest mode/remote downloads.

    What are the big, visually impressive games that playing on PS5 will get the absolute most out of? I have no interest in Darksouls.

    I've mostly been playing The Banner Saga trilogy and Dishonored recently, which while lovely looking don't exactly have that new console feel (although the noticeably shorter loading times are really cool).

    Is that Sackboy game any good? Does it use the dualsense as well as the Astrobot game?

    Is there much of a difference between the PS5 version of Spider-Man, and the PS4 version played on a PS5? If not, i might just do a new game+. I have the PS5 version of Miles Morales, but played it on PS4 over Christmas so it's a bit soon to go back to.

    Maybe i'll wait to see if we get anything for the PS5 on PS+ next week.

    Sackboy and Miles Morales (more so than the main Spidey game I believe) probably at the top of the list yeah.

    Sackboy's great, but nothing uses the Dualsense as much or as well as Astro yet.

    Then you've got the newly 60-fps-ed up PS4 games like Ghost of Tsushima, God of War and Days Gone. All play and look great on PS5.

    Miles Morales is probably the go to, especially with Performance RT available now.

    Elsewhere, Destiny 2 is looking fantastic with the PS5 update and is F2P. Sackboy is a brilliant game and looks very, very nice but I wouldn't say it's the absolute best representation of what the PS5 can do.

    Godfall's also worth a look but I could only advise it if it lands somewhere in the £20-30 range at this point.

    Yeah I was going to say Ghost of Tsushima, God of War, Days Gone and Destiny 2. Now it's had it's patch, Division 2 looks and plays fantastic as well mind you.

    If we're talking about pushing the hardware on the visuals front, presumably Watch Dogs: Legion should be in the mix? It has a "proper" PS5 version.

    Fwiw Creed Valhalla is the most visually impressive new release I have played on PS5, though itís a bit inconsistent. Certain parts of England look amazing.
