I do play games that are digital only. Has to be really good, and cheap though.

I'm glad they still make discs but digital is definitely a legit way to play. Whatever makes you happy. I'm still holding on to old nostalgia so I'm looking forward to my physical ratchet & clank disc to get here from best buy.com.

Yeah, i totally get why some prefer discs, i just prefer digital. i don't collect newer gen games and play in short bursts. i find having to get up every time i want to switch games a little annoying lol so for me to save a hundred and use that for another controller or put it towards another drive is a win.

Digital is great until they delist games. Rarely happens, but having physical means you could still play it.

Can someone plz help me? I just got a PS5 and I am having problems playing my owned digital games from an external hdd that I had used with my old ps4.
Some of the games it will let me play, but others just take me to the store page and try to get me to buy said game again.
I tried to do a restore licenses but it keeps saying there is a problem and gives me an error code. So as of right now I can't play many of my digital ps4 games

not sure, but maybe you have to deactivate your profile on your PS4. But don't do this unless you've transferred everything over.

@SilverOwl I ran into this a couple times among other odd behavior. Are these games on your main account or on a share? If they are on your main account make sure it is logged in and set to allow gameplay on this PS5. The other thing to try is to fully delete the game from your ps4 drive. Then go and see if the store lets you download it again.

If these games are on a share that's set to allow gameplay on your PS5 you will want to delete the game from the drive, log in as your share account and re-download the game from your share account. Then switch to your main and try to play it. For shares it has problems as well if you try to play from your library unless you delete and re-download.

They are all games on my main account. I ended up being able to play the witcher 3 complete edition, but it still has a lock symbol on the game icon.
And @Kommie I no longer have my ps4, and I have already deactivated it.
What I don't understand is where I can download my save file at.
And for the topic, demon's souls is still as awesome as I remember it from the ps3. I haven't died except for the very beginning and have made it to the first major boss. It's all starting to come back to me. I also got spiderman and AC valhalla.
I got a bundle that came with the ps5 camera, and it won't use it, so if anyone wants to trade it for a ps5 game, lmk

Thank god Sony let us use our external drives so we don't have to buy their really expensive drives. i was going to buy an SSD, but heard it has to be a certain type of SSD that Sony approves. I'll probably just use my external drive as a back up and just copy my games instead of downloading them. Glad i bought a 8 TB drive last year lol

Saves should be in the cloud if you have PS+

All of the newest consoles need super expensive SSDs, that's just how much it costs right now to get the required speed. Sony currently hasn't approved any but that's coming. Expect prices similar to the XBSX expansion drive though. With Sony allowing 3rd parties that price should go down but don't expect it any time soon. Save files were stored on the system drive. If you didn't push to the cloud (it's not always automatic) you may have to start over. I've had some save not work even though I did have them on the cloud. Had to replay Concrete Genie because the save wouldn't work.

The new Crash got a PS5 upgrade, I was not expecting this.. would kinda hope for a CTR patch, but that's wishful thinking.

No. I have used my external drives almost exclusively though. Because I dont really have PS5 games.

There are lots of weird issues caused by an external drive and I have run into multiple. Always make sure to turn the drive off or disconnect it properly. I would also avoid sleep mode. Not everyone gets the problems and they seem somewhat random. I had a bunch at first and lately everything has been smooth sailing up to about a week ago. My system refuses to recover from sleep mode anymore and that always results in external drive issues. Constantly rebuilding the databases or trying to recover from errors is what seems to potentially cause bricked consoles but that is very rare.

No but I had a weird occurrence last night when first diving into my PS5. The internet kept dropping at random saying my wifi was fine but could not connect to the internet. I rebooted my router and it seems fine for now but I'll continue to monitor it.

I had some issues early on with downloads not continuing to download when the system was put in "sleep" mode, meaning I had to keep the system on and active (white light instead of yellow), but haven't had those same issues recently.

That's on Wi-Fi.

I remember buying that game but I cannot remember if I played it or not. It is sad how many PS3 games I owned and never played.

It's a neat feature to record how you obtained a trophy to perhaps share and help friends show how to unlock trophies they're stuck on in short clips, but yeah I agree, it siphons your limited SSD space rapidly. I shut it off immediately.

I just straight up tell YouTube to never recommend the channel again every time one pops up in my feed.

Lol. Killed the Tower Knight in Demon's Souls not realizing there's a trophy for doing it without killing any archers.
