    @RyanDS Apologies that was a bit vague. Sony have taken a minority stake in Discord with the aim of deeper integration into PlayStation and ‘more news to follow’…

    MS wanted to out right buy them but Discord decided against it late on.
    Nintendo could really do with Discord on switch

    With Nintendo I doubt there is a technical reason why their communication options are so shite, it comes across as a choice not a necessity.

    Something Sunset Overdrive coming?

    https://www.tmdn.org/tmview/#/tmview/detail/US500000085983126

    Might just be renewing the IP for name reasons like companies often do but it would be a shame if they don't make another game.

    I didn't like SO nearly as much as I hoped, for a game that was obviously inspired by JSR, traversal was simply no fun and the shooting was too erratic.

    Might do with a remaster that streamlined those things a bit though.

    Think I'd play it for more than a couple of hours if it got a 60fps mode and Res bump, through a Series X patch or just the FPS boost hack

    Hang on…..is Wreckfest on PS+ for PS5 only or is it on PS4 too?

    @richardiox could it even get FPS Boost now that Insomniac is a Sony dev?

    That said, I'm not really clear on the rights situation for the game. They said Insomniac owns the IP, but does MS hold the rights to the Xbox version in particular, since they published it? If so, maybe it could happen.

    Wreckfest is on PS+ for PS5 only.

    That might explain why the PS version got a specific paid upgrade. If they had just patched the enhancements in the PS4 version like they did on Xbox, they would have no way of excluding PS4 owners from the giveaway

    Aren't FPS Boosts and X Enhanced patches done without any direct input from the developer though? MS might ask permission, and I can't see Insomniac saying no as they'd want their game to run the best it can. Perhaps a fullblowk remaster on the Series consoles is out of the question, though.

    I just did my dust traps

    Really easy, Little build up on plates and on the body. Could not vacuum the dust off my fan on one side bit discovered gently blowing on it sent the dust out of one of the two dust extraction widgets. Neat system.

    Rhyming with dust, is anyone keen on Rust for the PS5? Me and a friend love these types of survival games but is it worth £40 on the PS5? Can’t be doing 30fps either.

    @mothercruncher seem to remember someone posting a link here with a guide/video on cleaning. It's not something I've even thought about doing yet for fear of breaking something knowing my luck.

    Got one of my controllers playing up. The x button works okay, but feels wrong. Sometimes just seems to press with no click and feels wrong, then occasionally has a loud click with heavy resistance. Mechanically is fine but something wrong tactile.

    Send for repair as fucked or a simple fix?

    @spookyxelectric maybe auto HDR is just not that important, but I'm assuming that MS needs to ask for permission before doing anything like FPS Boost to a game, just in case a publisher might want to release a paid upgrade or even a full remaster.

    Stranded deep is a bit shite. Didn't expect it to be so slow.

    Even if they did, it would likely arrive by the time the PS6 is out.

    Actually some elements of wreckfest i loved, others were meh. I enjoyed the actual demolition derbies great fun. Some of the track racing is an exercise in frustration though.
    Yep, think I'm here with it. Seems a bit floaty to me, still early days.

    @RyanDS the new controllers are more complicated than any previous gen ones, but I've taken mine apart without too much fuss (following an unfortunate incident with my youngest and a glass of orange juice).

    From the sound of things, there's something caught in the button mechanism, but you will need to remove quite a few components before you can get to that and fix things.

    Ed: I used the following link to guide me: https://youtu.be/viqj_MWjb4I

    @Nitrous Very, very easy. Both panels slide off in the same way and it’s obvious because, looking at them, you can only slide them in one direction. Just need to gently lift the corner opposite to the way they’ll move to release them and then get busy with the vac.

    Amazon are doing a Dualsense and copy of MK11 bundle for £69 if anyone's interested.

    Ordered the official DualSense Charging Station and it just arrived. I have to admit, I'm disappointed that it runs off the mains power. I just assumed it would connect the USB port on the back and charge the controllers while the console is in standby.

    A Colleague at work has just managed to snag a PS5 from Game. Proper rush of excitement!!

    Even more amazingly they got a bundle with a spare controller and didn’t have to buy any of Ashley’s t-shirts with it!!

    Good luck to anyone shopping this morning!
