Sony has started to send PS5 consoles to the press for preview and review purposes. Images show the content of the boxes and more.
Send it to me already so I can start reading for myself
Not long now... but at the same time, too flipping long!
I've already cleared some space on either side of my tv for both of these power houses.
Yeah, it's not a lot of time left, but it's going to feel like it's dragging on just because of the anticipation. @darth - I still need to do some measurements for my PS5. I *think* there's enough room, but it might be a little tight.
Me too, please.
I won’t read a thing ! I’ll set up whatever it requires then my internet and log in to PSN skip all tutorials and put Demons Souls in right away and play ASAP!
Lol... If you want to play demon souls so bad just boot up your ps3 dude!
I hope the embargo lift isn't too far off
nice that I can plug in my PS5, hook it up to the same network and then transfer it that way.
Good. I still need to beat every PS4 game I own 🤣😅 Very excited to jump into next gen
Question to my tech guys or girls...To transfer over Wifi, would that use any data? I am capped at 100gigs a month, and definitely cannot transfer my PS4 stuff to my PS5 if that would use my network data. I don't see how it could have anything to do with my internet provider but I am not positive. I know I can use an external drive but I am just wondering in case I have to steer clear of the 1st option for sure. Thanks! Also, when it comes to running PS4 games off of the external HD, is there a certain minimum speed I need to make sure I get to successfully run the games off the external HD? I will be ordering one soon and want to make sure I get a good one for this purpose... (Also brand to aim for?) Many thanks in advance. You rock whoever you are.
I mean it technically wouldn't have to if it was done properly.
If you're transferring data from the PS4 directly to the PS5 on the same network you shouldn't be using any data of your ISP. Unless the PS5 downloads some trophy information or save games from the cloud you should be ok. And to be safe you can always unplug the ethernet cable from your wireless router.
Storm23 - Just use the cable supplied to transfer data, external drives can be any speed - they didn't say otherwise. Only PS4 games can be ran off external, PS5 games can be stored and transferred over. I'd stay away from Seagate, I've only ever had trouble with them. Best bet would be a Western Digital Black. Good luck.
Cool. Will go with WD. Thanks
I use 4tb seagate game drives on both the ps4 and xbo and never had a problem. I've even replaced the internal stock seagate 1tb in my pro with a 2tb firecuda and never had a problem. Not to say there cant be problems as Ive had plenty with WD over the years but to each their own.
Thanks guys. Really appreciate it. Great idea on unplugging the ethernet when transferring to make sure. And I checked into the speeds of the HD in the PS4 and PS4 Pro and it seems like it will be no problem getting drives faster than that. (I was just thinking that playing PS4 games off the drive it should be at least as fast. Glad pretty much all drives now are faster than those. And yeah, PS5 games will be on the SSD or just stored on the external. All good there). Happy gaming everyone.
Your cap is safe. It's going through local network.
Cool. What I thought but I am technically challenged...
I would think it's the same as when you cast a video from your phone to the tv on the same wifi network....no data used
Is the HDMI cable contained within the box 2.1? Also, has there been any confirmation from Sony to confirm that the hdmi port is 2.1? I don't see them mentioning this on their branding.
Pretty sure it's a HDMI 2.1 port, but I'm also wondering about the cable. I think I'm just going to buy a few anyway, just to be safe.
I have my PS5 ordered, by I just find it curious that there is no mention of HDMI 2.1 on the box, plus on the official breakdown video of the PS5, there was only mention of HDMI but not 2.1. The development team at Dirt 5 have mentioned that the PS5 version is capable of 120 fps, which would lead you to believe it's 2.1 capable. Which is why I find it very odd, that with only a matter of weeks to go, this has still not been officially confirmed.
It is, it was shown in the teardown video. Edit: Correction, it was specified on the interview with Mr. Otori, its at the bottom of the HDMI port picture (i knew i had seem somewhere) https://translate.google.co...
Brilliant stuff & many thanks Titanium. That's great news.
The console does 4k @120fps with vrr so I'm pretty sure it's 2.1.
The fact that they've even mentioned that it supports 8K means that it supports HDMI 2.1. The port itself would need to be if it were to output that even for something like Netflix or whatever.
It's great news & a relief to find out that it indeed has an HDMI 2.1 port. (see titaniums link above). I'm not the most technically minded when it comes to these things, & as I had not yet found confirmation, I was getting worried that perhaps HDMI 2.1 would be a feature that Sony would release in a later firmware update. My TV can breathe a sigh of relief. Many thanks to you nice, kind folks for answering my questions.
I was hoping the PS4 camera adapter was included. Anyone know how to get it?
I think Sony has to send it to you once PSVR ownership has been confirmed. Not sure on how they're going to do that.
Maybe I have to call customer service at that point.
Still hanging for information on how I can claim my VR adaptor since I'll be trading my pro in for a 5 and I've been actively playing squadrons with friends in VR I hope it's not a big wait
Curious of the WiFi transfer let’s you choose which content to transfer because my PS4 has a 2TB and the PS5 will have less than 800GB of storage.
Id say the best course of action is to use an external hdd and just play those ps4 games off that and save the internal storage on the ps5 for ps5 games. That way you dont have to decide what to sacrifice when transferring. I too have a 2tb in my pro but I have all my games installed to a 4tb gamedrive so it should be pretty much plug and play.
I have an 8TB external that I will use as storage for both PS4/PS5 titles. I'll just transfer the games I want to play at that time to the internal SSD. I might eventually have to have a separate drive for PS4, and a separate one for PS5 or add another internal SSD once they become affordable.
Upload games saves to plus, download game saves on PS5 would be logical
Cloud saves should already be a free part of PSN by now I have all my saves on a thumb drive, but I’m not going to have that on me everytime I got to a friend’s house. Having additional free cloud saves would be a godsend
I wonder would the ps5 come with some free goodies like 10$ psn store credit or one month ps plus like the ps4 did.
Why isn’t Sony selling a PS5 with more/double storage for $50/$100 more
Because it wouldn't be 50$ or 100$ more. It would be 200$.
I think $100 more would fit the bill
Not with this tech.
I’m going to start loading the games I want on ps5 to the external and the PS4 ones to the local.
i will transfer PT :)
Konami already said it's not compatible
.... well f**k, I was planning to do the same thing.
how come? i have not seen such info no where
Gonna wait for there to be something to play on it before jumping in, but thanks to all the beta testers for priming it up!
Such a generic looking box imo..
niiice one, thanks:)
well some of us did a backup to usb and sold the old one.
