  1. People on Resetera seem to be going nuts for this one: https://www.staples.com/Staples-Hyken-Technical-Mesh-Task-Chair-Black/product_990119 Anyone tried one, it doesn't look as comfy as the ones in this thread, but it's less than half the price. Can't see that exact model on the UK Staples site though.
  2. Give up alcohol and mend broken bridges with Grant. Sorry, didn’t like the question so chose a different Phil.
  3. The Devil and the Dark Water by Stuart Turton. The author's previous novel, The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, a kind of mashup of Agatha Christie, Groundhog Day, with a dash of Quantumn Leap, was good fun and so is this. I won't give much away as the twists and turns are half the fun, but the basic premise is that Not-Sherlock Holmes is being transported across the ocean to be executed for an undisclosed crime in solitary confinement, so it's up to Not-Dr Watson to try and get to the bottom of things when the ship is beset by all sorts of demonic happenings.
  4. Fair enough. I was put that as an option so we’d then be able to see the forum numbers on those options, just of the people who were having crashes to see if there were any obvious themes. But the non-crashers ignored the option anyway so I goofed.
  5. So what watchlists are y'all using? There's so many out there.
  6. Yes, yes, I know, yet another PS5 thread! But thought it would be worth having one as a lot of us are running into a lot of crashes and to see if there's any common themes to help us avoid problems. This is supposed to be a thread for troubleshooting for console owners, so if you're currently mounting your mighty steed ready to ride to the defence of the console, or to attack because you pledged your fealty to another plastic box, please just take it to the Console Warz thread. Useful if you could give a brief description, including game, as well as answering the poll.
  7. Fun Fact: Beverly Crusher was the choreographer on The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth and The Muppets Take Manhattan.
  8. Also stickers guys was doing it no matter what from the moment he powered the thing on, when I think most of us notice a difference between dash and game.
  9. Looking at Activision's website, it seems only the big standard version is available physically. If you want the 'cross gen bundle' you have to buy it digitally or pay an upgrade fee if you already have it on disc. When I bought it digitally it downloaded both versions - PS4 and PS5. Thanks for making me download an unneeded 100gb Activision!
  10. I for one am, shocked, shocked I tells ya, that out of everybody on this forum Gooner just happened to be the one to tell us he managed to snag a PS5 that's even quieter than an XBX.
  11. No, unless it says it's the more expensive cross-gen bundle version then you'll be buying the last gen version. It'll work via backwards compatibility but won't have ray tracing and whatnot. It's the same on Xbox because Activision are money grubbing bastards and didn't sign up to smart delivery.
  12. Can only speak to my personal experience, my XBX is silent over the TV unless you go right up to it, my PS5 is fine on the dash, but the second you start a game you can hear the fan/coil (not expert enough to know which it is) over the TV, although it is quieter than the Pro (though that's a pretty low bar). A lot will depend on how sensitive your ears are to this type of sound.
  13. Mine is disappointingly noisy as well. Unsure if it’s the dreaded coil whine or the fan. Think it’s the latter as it’s more like a whirring buzzy noise than anything else. It,s quieter than my PS4 Pro was, but can still hear it during quieter scenes if using the TV speakers instead of headphones. Disappointing after hyperbolic tech 'journalists' going on about it being silent. You think I'd learn as I remember them saying just how quiet the Pro was prior to release and I bet you can dig up previews of the Xbox 360 calling it 'whisper quiet'. There's so many people reporting similar that I thin
  14. It feels a bit like a switcheroo of the PS3/360 launch era. The more powerful console is running worse than you'd expect while the other console is running better but the hardware is also buggy as fuck. For the PS3 is was because of Krazy Ken's bonkers architecture, one of the strangths of the XBX was supposed to be how conventional it was for ease of development. John Linneman seems fairly confident that MS can solve this with better development tools.
