Sounds really good. Nice additions and I hope they keep them coming.

Has anyone tested the tv audio? That’s actually cool

Dang, no VRR or 1440p toggle.

We dont know for sure.... it would be smart but I dont want to get my hopes up.

Still waiting for Sony to enable VRR from last years TV too.

CaptainHenry91661d ago

If it's already over a year I don't think that's going to happen. I'll be surprised if it does happen

It was an advertised feature they said would be added via a firmware update, so if they don't do it they're risking a class action lawsuit.

Neonridr60d ago

isn't VRR just enabled or not? Does it matter if your TV is from this year or last? Sorry, just not following here.

dumahim60d ago


The TV has to support it as well. For the Sony x900h they said 120 Hz and VRR would be added later via a firmware update. They added 120 Hz, but not VRR yet. Looks like it has been just over a year now and they haven't added it yet.

Can I has ability to do custom Platinum acreenshots?:(

Applejack61d ago

He’s referring to the PS5 being able to take screenshots when you earn trophies.

dumahim60d ago

I'd be happy with just them removing that horrible black part that covers up a large part of the screenshot.

Man. Just going to wait and see who else has some drives out and I’m going with 1TB or better.


I really don’t mind using an external to migrate ps5 game files. It takes 5 minutes to install a game on the SSD once a copy is made on the external.
