    Apologies if this has been mentioned already. Has anyone sussed out how the 'Other' storage works? The UI description is vague to say the least. My understanding is it's not the OS, so currently unsure how I'm currently sitting with 86GB used. It does appear to go up of you transfer PS4 games to the console. I only have PS5 games installed on the SSD. Either way Sony need to be transparent about how it works as it's a shitload of space to lose given how little space is already available.

    @POPTONES

    If installing from disc, never click 'copy', just put the disc in and leave it and it will sort itself out. Personally I avoid rest mode, and always shut down any game / app on exit. That sounds annoying but they load so quick it doesn't really matter.

    Miles Morales seems to perhaps have more than its fair share of issues? Seem people have had issues with external storage.

    All I can think of.

    @cambison If you have transfers underway from your old PS4, that will go in "other" until the transfer is completed or cancelled. Now that all of my transfers are done, I'm down at around 27GB of "other", which is still a lot, but much less bad than it looked for a while

    Thanks both. Would rather do small unintuitive things like close apps avoid rest mode everytime than have it brick on me! Guessing it'll be hard to get a replacement so will just be safe and wait for updates.

    Is there currently a PS5 version of FIFA? I quite the occasional kick around.

    @Rogueywon thanks for the reply. I don't have any transfers on the go. I wonder if it's related to the fact I manually transferred my saves from PS4 via USB. The fact you can't view the contents of the folder is part of the problem.

    @POPTONES As far as I'm aware, the only bricking issues have been from some rare cases involving rest mode and external storage. Everything else can usually be sorted with a restart and/or safe mode.

    But yeah, not much stock around for replacements, so better safe than sorry for the time being.

    Edit: And to keep things in perspective, this is all absolutely peachy compared to the 360 launch, when there was also no stock for replacements and a massive RROD problem.

    @neems yeah I was thinking the same. Plus I have a mate who loves a bit of co-op.

    I just think it works on PS5 but not aware of any upgrade. Gunna have a look now. £32 though, nice.

    Fired up my Last of Us 2 save last night for the first time on PS5. Jeez, coming from two weeks with the Series X and a few days of PS5, playing a 30fps game was incredibly jarring.

    Took my eyes and brain a couple of minutes to readjust but when they did, god this game is stunning.

    Really wish ND would be transparent about their PS5 plans for the game. Kind of ridiculous that something like Borderlands 3 gets a big PS5 patch for launch, Destiny next month, Witcher 3 announced for next year....

    ...but absolute zero / radio silence from Sony's biggest first party developer for a PS4 game that may as well have been cross platforms considering when it launched.

    @POPTONES Steer clear of rest mode. Close down games when you've finished playing them, for now. Fortunately, load times are short enough that this isn't much of a sacrifice. If you get the download queue bug, there's a fix involving safe mode linked from the EG frontpage. Most other problems can be sorted with a restart.

    For now, probably best to charge controller(s) from the rear USB ports - the front port is a bit temperamental.
    Hmmm I've only used rest mode , always have a game open and charge from front usb. So far so good, must be very intermittent issues or only affecting certain ps5s?

    Yeah, I've moved on to TLOU2 now after clearing Spidey and Astro. Was planning on waiting for news of a patch, but the radio silence doesn't fill me with hope.

    Nor does the Naughty Dog prior form of charging full price for a resolution / FPS bump version of a game you've already paid them for. Ideally I'd want a free patch (next week please) but if not I'd pay a tenner upgrade. They can get fucked if they wait a year and try to charge me full price again.

    CeX are buying it for 40.

    I'm quite enjoying it for the grafix. It's shallow as fuck compared to WRC, but it's accessible enough that I've been able to get the Mrs involved for pretty much the first time ever. Runs at 60fps in split screen too which is ace.

    Days Gone plays very well now in backwards compatibility. I'd like that to be the standard performance for Sony's Ps4 games. Tlou2 ran better on my base ps4 than DG did, so hopefully Naughty Dog will patch that kind of performance.

    Any other standout backwards compat games? How is red dead?

    God of War and Ghost of Tsushima both run like a dream on PS5. GoW can be grabbed in the PS+ collection too.

    I had problems with connection/lag during every mp game I tried to play. Turns out if you are using WiFi it can pick up 2.4ghz as a default. You can change the band to 5ghz in Network>Setup internet connection>registered networks select the WiFi network and hit 'start' this brings up the option to select 5ghz. This resolved my connection issues.

    They absolutely will be doing something. I'm expecting a Spider-Man type paid for update though.

    Tbf that's only one game and it was a previous generation game, it wasn't a simple port seeing as the there's a big difference between ps3 and PS4.

    They still have to release factions for TLoU2, so whatever package they have in store for PS5 will include that.

    Yeah I have read good things about ghost, but does god of war actually hit 60 at 4k?

    Cash. You can do drop and go at the moment, which I did with my PS4 yesterday or they can email you a prepaid postage label so you can send it off.

    @Derblington

    I've just double checked and the mute button on controller definitely does not work with the official pulse headset. "the mute button on the controller won't work while using the current device" message pop up.
