    See I can never be bothered to get the wheel out these days. It's stuck in the cupboard, then I need to get a chair out too. Haptics for the easy life win.

    @Abarth_71 quick question on the sound quality of the 7P headset? They good enough to recommend and can you see/hear the difference in the tempest 3 audio. Seriously considering buying them but havenít seen any info on how they play with the PS5.

    Haptics in NBA 2K21 are fantastic as well, for those wanting games to demo features. Looks fantastic too. I can finally be LeJohn Brames.

    I have the standard 7, which is exactly the same but with a different dongle. They sound terrific and the tempest sound works really well. Iíd recommend them easily over even the platinum headset.

    Mine came in a few hours ago!
    It's a chonky boi, isn't it?

    Was having the database is corrupt issue while trying to redeem the PS Plus Collection titles while installing Miles Morales off disc. Happened about three or four times before I decided to just stop redeeming them.

    Played a bit of Astro's Playroom, which is just lovely.

    After that, went back and redeemed the rest of the Plus Collection, and all proceeded without issue, so I've decided to try not to make the PS5 do multiple things at once.

    Now currently installing Valhalla off disc, then will give Miles a go once that's completed.

    Oh yeah, the controller? Fantastic. Rumble is great, triggers feel nice, and the controller just feels good in the hand.

    So first PS5 impressions overall are excellent.

    Got into the second hub world on Sackboy. This is very very good, isnít it? I reckon if this was a Nintendo title everyone would be raving about this. Gotta be one of the best platformers of the last ten years.

    Seems like Miles Morales is responsible for a lot of woes, I don't have it and not had a single issue so far (Jinx), and that's with a bunch of PS4 games installed on extended storage as well.

    C'mon Joey, my wallet is already weeping :)

    I have been playing Miles since thursday with no issues at all. Sometimes it is the luck of the draw. I can put my ps5 into standby with Miles on pause with no issues. Same as Demon's souls,no issues but DS is hard but gorgeous like the wife lol.

    @TommyUnderwear Still waiting for my PS5 to be delivered. They'll work with Tempest but I'm impressed with them so far on the PS4.

    Only thing that's stopping me is that I'd still want to use the wheel. I've been very close to getting it though. I take it it's 60fps?
    60fps yeah. I wouldn't put it down as much of a looker (still better than PS4 stuff mind), Dirt 5 is the prettier game but WRC's haptics/triggers are something else and the game itself is really good.

    WRC is really tempting at price, seems to be getting good word of mouth. Think I will buy it next week on payday for sure (and you know if the consoles ever turns up)

    Evening. Is Spiderman Remastered PS5 worth a purchase if you've played it on PS4 (Pro) - tempted by it but concerned 8m not going to see much of a difference.....

    It's the same game you already played with marginally improved visuals. Only you know if ray tracing/60fps is enough to keep you going.

    The original already looked great and played great on ps4 I personally would not imagine its worth double dipping.

    People who have the Pulse, it seems like the sound mixing is heavily favoured towards game chat initially. I've just used the rocker to move the sound all the way across to game audio (it's not just an either/or setting which I misunderstood. It's completely changed it again for me. Playing Demon's Souls and it's absolutely overwhelming to me on full volume.

    Random one for anyone on WRC (might be worth making a separate thread) but Iím currently sat at 27th in the world for time on: Neste Rally Finland (Ouninpohja Reverse).

    I impulse bought WRC9 this fine evening, as that price was too tempting. I'm not a massive rally game fan in general, but I'm really enjoying it so far. They really put some effort into making the Career Mode more than just a string of races (though there is a mode that does that if you prefer) that I can see me sticking with. I suck at it, but the difficulty settings are broad enough to suit even my terrible driving skills.

    The handling is great too and the DualSense stuff is lovely. Nothing revolutionary or anything, but it's nice enough that I already can't imagine it not being there.

    Damn, Iíve gone from cancelling my order to wanting it again LOL. When you say overwhelming do you mean in a good way? I had high hopes for these headphones, sold my PS4 ones.

    I'm just a few levels behind you (but am getting all of the collectables on a level before moving on) - it is lovely; very imaginative with lots of variation between levels and looks brilliant.

    Personally I don't rate it quite as highly as something like Mario Odyssey, but its head and shoulders above the previous Sackboy games

    Wrc9 is ace for the money and a very enjoyable racer, great use of feedback on the controller

    Honestly, I had to turn it down. It was making my heart go ten to the dozen hearing a dragon swooshing around above me raining flames down on the ground. The level of direction and impact coming through the speakers felt almost physical.

    Got an alert saying someone had beaten my time on an Astro Bot time trial. I clicked the button and five secons later it was counting me down to start - that's the kind of thing they need to be pushing. The only other game I can think of that loads that fast into an actual game is the PC version of Tales of Cold Steel when they added the command line option to load the last save and skip all the menus etc.
