So, bringing this over from the What’s New thread, I have managed to aquire a PS5 today. Just finished setting the thing up. I must admit, there is a childlike part of setting a console up, and I guess even the people at Playstation know that with the fancy UI and music that plays while you do all the setup stuff.
Bought a few games on Amazon that’ll arrive tomorrow, Gran Turismo Sport, Wipeout: Omega Edition, and Persona 5 Royal. I never owned a PS4, so really alot of the appeal for the PS5 is to be able to play the PS4’s back catalog. I have subscribed for Playstation Plus for a month, made sure to claim this month’s games, have Wreckfest on download right now. Kindof wonder if it might be a good idea to invest in a PS5 external harddrive, I’m guessing the PS5’s less than 1TB isn’t going to stretch too far.
Started playing Astro’s Playroom. I do enjoy a good playformer, and honestly, while I’m sure this is basically a free tech demo, it has so much character put into it, it’s not too short, I think I’ve only done a quarter of it and that took over an hour. Really just shows off how impressive the DualSense controller. I don’t know how much of this is carried over from the DualShock 4 but wow, pretty big step up. Kindof wonder how many games will actually bother to use this tech though, aside from the Playstation exclusives I assume.
So yeah, feeling pretty happy. Will be nice to slowly build up my game collection overtime. Will pick up Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart on release. Cool stuff.
