  1. Got a pair of Turtle Beach Stealth 700 gen 2 for my PS5 for Christmas. After a couple of weeks of using them I'm still weirded out by them. At times they seem brilliant, but at others (for instance idling on the PS5 menu) they seem a bit crackly/distorted. Anyone else got this model of headset?
  2. Mine's silent on start-up, unless there's a disc in the drive, in which case it spins it so loudly for about 15 seconds that it reminds me of my old PS4 pro fan noise. Once that's done, though, it's back to near-silent. I've certainly never heard its fans 'kick in' in any game at all. Any noise from the console is either inaudible over the sound of the game, or inaudible when i've got my headphones on. This is a stark contrast to the Pro where i could hear the machine even when i had my headphones on and the audio turned up loud The ony 'disappointment' i have sound-wise right
  3. As someone who did succesfully get a PS5 at launch, alongside my series S, i'd suggest you stick with your original plan. They complement each other superbly and it's the perfect way to have one foot in each system. I'm using the S for gamepass and catching up on old xbone games, which is superb, whilst enjoying Miles Morales, etc on the PS5. I wouldn't want to swap the access to the PS exclusives for an xbox that runs the stuff on gamepass at higher res/fps than the series S does right now. I reckon it could be a good 2 years before theres's anything that's xbox only where the series x is
  4. Yes, it's actually a Toshiba one not Samsung, which in terms of hard drives i'd maybe expect to be better. What I have done today is change it to the other rear USB port and tested it connected to that one, and it's not errored through a couple of cycles of turning on and going to rest mode. Meanwhile the port it was plugged into has worked fine for charging a controller (had problems using the front for that) suggesting the port itself isn't a problem. All very strange but will see how it goes.
  5. It's an older Samsung 1TB USB3.0 drive. I've got it plugged into a rear USB for the same reasons you've mentioned, plus the aesthetics. It must be something to do with the drive then. I've had it quite a long time so in some regards i was surprised the PS5 was happy to use it, and like i say it works perfectly while the console's on. My guess is that it's something to do with how the drive goes to sleep - the PS5 obviously thinks it's been unplugged when it hasn't. Thanks for reassuring me the console itself isn't doing this on a widespread basis. Will invest in a new drive
  6. Hooked up a USB external drive yesterday to get a load of PS4 stuff downloaded, and it works fine (brilliantly, in fact) until I close the console down. The next time it starts up it thinks the USB's not connected, so i reconnect it and then it does the 'you didn't unplug it properly' routine, checks for errors, and goes back to working. Anyone else getting this with external drives? Wondering if it's because of the specific drive I'm using, or a common problem across all makes/models?
  7. Lego games are the perfect entry in my opinion - totally safe, wholesome and always a good co-op experience. Whilst the most recent ones are undoubtedly the best games, for a 5 year old you might want to ease him in with the original lego star wars (via ps now, xbox backwards compatability, or on ipad/tablets) or lego batman & lego batman 2. The mechanics on those ones are more straightforward making it easier to learn the basics of controls, buttons, etc. My eldest is 6 and it's only in the last month that my Mrs gave me the go ahead to introduce him to playing on the playst
  8. Frustrating thing came to light about the Series S yesterday for me - plugged it into a 1080p display which supports HDR10, only to found that HDR functionality is locked to only work on 4K displays - the console appears to need to detect 4K compatability before it will allow HDR to be turned on. Bit daft if you ask me.
  9. Are you plugging the controller in before engaging rest mode? Mine works fine so long as it was plugged in before closing down, but doesn't work if you plug in the controller when the machine is already resting. This is the same as it was with my PS4 & Pro.
  10. I'm now the proud owner of a Miles Morales disc and a Dualsense. Come on Amazon, don't let me down on Thursday
  11. bounced off it on PS4 when it came out. Gamepassing it on the new series S sounds like a good plan if the load times have improved.
  12. Very impressed with mine. Lovely and small. Silent at all times, so far. Gives off warmth from the ‘speaker’, but that’s the idea of it. The ps5 will be my main like you, where I’ll play all the Sony exclusives and big AAAs. Given I’ve got the S on a 1080p monitor (the 5 will go on the UHD TV) it feels like the perfect & affordable way to access gamepass and catch up on old Xbox games (not had one since 360) whilst also knowing I won’t miss the new ones from this gen. Only dived into a couple of games so far but they’ve looked and ran lovely. For me the PS5 and seri
  13. Setup of my S was superb. Set a few downloads going of gamepass games, and fully expect I'll fill the drive before they're all done
  14. and just like that, things change. I updated the delivery address with Argos a week ago so it'd come to home instead of work (due to lockdown) but just had a call from DHL as he was outside my closed office. Absolute shambles, and glad I've got the Amazon backup now, not going through the hassle and delay of rearranging delivery with DHL.
  15. DHL are 8 stops away with my argos order. Amazon yet to deliver to my collection hub. Looks like Argos are going to win the race and I'll keep theirs and cancel the Amazon one. Amazon have, in the last 24 hours, sent me codes for £10 off a controller, and 40% off 3 months of Gamepass ultimate. Already used the controller code and can't see they'll cancel the gamepass code if i cancel the xbox order, so thanks Jeff
