Yeah man. Mostly the cmos batt will survive longer than the rest of the other components.

Don't buy digital Edition lah. Don't deprive yourself of having the extra options. Now that PlayStation finally has a UHD Blu-ray drive, I wonder if I should start collecting some uhd bd movies.

Collect just your fave ones? I sold most of mine. My uhd fever subsided last year :lol: Now the digital copies that comes with the discs not so easy to redeem liao. Moviesanywhere with google play or itunes most straightfoward. Vpn is not required to access your digital library. You just need a friend in US or a vpn trial to redeem it once. If fandango, vudu, lionsgate all that need vpn to redeem and access.

My physical edition should be here by 30th Apr. I can only think of a few games to plat, the free astro & control, my atelier ryza 2, borderlands 3 & nioh 2. Sucks nioh 1 did not get a free ps5 upgrade. I'm not paying full price for that. Sold avengers and miles morales long ago. Pretty sure those will end up on psplus. I'm not interested in RE8. I bought RE7 gold edition so long ago still have not started playing. Only 2 games I'm looking forward to atm, ghostwire and hzd2.

Yeah I think so. That means you have a dedicated uhd player? Which one is it?

U preordered from Sony as well? Looks like more stocks are available. Can see the flippers all lowering their prices.

Yup, samsung m9500 their last uhd player before they quit making them. That time bought together with oled b8.

Pre-ordered from sony online store, the 2 controller disc edition. One afternoon 2pm+, I just checked the online store and to my surprise it was in stock, lucky. I noticed that a few online stores I used to buy games from also scalping :lol: Not sure if I would shop there again.

Think now is Returnal. No interest in it though.

Seen alot of ps5 owners change the faceplates to black for 60+usd. I think swapping colors doesn't make it look any better :lol: Instead I ordered a $20 vertical dust cover (sold out as of may 1st) that stays on while playing, just need to unzip the part near vents so I don't have to look at that weird form. I have always dislike the texture of controller sleeves. But no choice now, white will yellow. All these unnecessary expenditure because one smartass thinks white is the best choice for all consumers.

My controller already a bit yellow from the sweat. Think they trying to follow the apple aesthetic?

Before ps5, the only white launch console they released I think it's that PSX which can play ps1, ps2 games with controller ports on the rear, dvd and burn dvd. Wah so fast yellow? My $20 2 x sleeves still in china, ps5 received liao. I thought you will buy demon souls :lol:

Astro bot playroom reminds me of why I like LBP then gradually lose interest in the sequels because it got too chim and requires 3p, 4p to 100% the levels. Maybe I should get that sackboy game.

No lah. Already day 100 still need to pay day 1 price for the game. I'm expecting it to be cheaper. That's why I doubt I'll ever own a Nintendo cos their games don't ever drop price. Lol

I find it very meaningful to collect collectibles in astro.

Yeah. Both my ps3 still alive and kicking.

Switch games resell value won't drop as much as ps4. Most first party titles can get $50 back. But also alot more lowballers than ps4.
Go get a controller sleeve. I see mostly positive reviews for this brand 良值 on taobao, not too thick and the new version will fit charging dock. If you don't intend to use dock, the red and blue spiderman theme looks good. I went with the new version black and white because eventually I will buy the charging dock. Another color is lakers purple and yellow. Only the above 2 colors available for new version. 2 pieces including shipping fee about $20, $21 and free analog sticks thumb grip. Buy other brands locally will cost $19.90 per piece :lol:

Coupons might help a bit or just wait for sale and don't blame them for no sequel :lol: I don't intend to buy day one anymore because looking back at ps4 era ps games prices drop damn fast unlike switch games. Look at the situation now, gamepass massive library at an affordable sub fee, hzd complete ed free and you don't even need to be a psplus member and the ps5 plus collection has 13 games which I paid full price for on day one. I'm one of the day 1 Days Gone adopter and everytime I see that game, I get reminded of that moron :lol: $10 might not be much but enough to make one reconsider since we have so many options in gaming now. I don't like how last stand media talk about pple being whiny over $10. That $10 is srp and might cost even more depending on retailers. Prices pretty much goes back to ps2 days. I was desperate to play ffx back then and paid $93 for it.

Quite a number of ps5 games autopop the platinum with save transfer. But $90 for a plat, I won't do it :lol: Miles Morales (free upgrade), Spiderman Remastered(paid), Nioh 1(paid) & 2(free upgrade), Marvel's Avengers(free upgrade). From what I have read, Nioh 1 remastered upgrade is underwhelming so $95 for that collection is not worth it if you already own the ps4 version of nioh 2 special edition which is eligible for free ps5 upgrade. Judge's Eyes although ps5 version is cheap but it does not come with the $19.99 dlc. Only ang moh version Judgment includes dlcs. Also from what I read, not really worth full price if you already own the ps4 version, what you get is slightly sharper details and 60fps. Imo I think it is not a good idea to autopop especially when you have to rebuy the game at full price, even more expensive than ps4 version. Imo it should have been an upgrade path small payment if there are no new content in the remastered edition.
