Turns out I did get the GOAT game when it was free. Bugsnax, that is.

Do games ask if you want 60FPS mode/Ray Tracing mode preference?

I think it varies. On Spider-Man, I toggled between settings in the menu and for sure 60 fps is a must.

Ive only "played" 2 PS5 games (Spiderman, Control) and they did let you choose between 4k, FrameRate and Ray Tracing.

so far I've only done Astro's Playroom and Bugsnax. Neither asked anything. Have Demon's Souls coming in from someone here as a "real" PS5 game.

Those probably run at max res and 60fps already. Probably no Ray Tracing. Normally the trade-off is 4k for Ray Tracing.

Yeah, I assumed they're already 60FPS. Kinda don't care about ray tracing, my TV is 4K but I doubt it's RT. Would rather have 60 FPS anyway.

After playing games like Black Ops Cold War and Dirt 5 at120fps, it's really hard for me to care about an extra shadow or reflection on a surface. Gimme all da frames!

Do you mean HDR? I believe RT is not really related to your TV. Just more realistic reflections and lighting which I guess requires a lot of processing power. I dont think its that big of a deal really. It is impressive in the Spiderman games though...mostly because there's so many windows and buildings. I went with Performance RT because it has a little bit of everything and whatever res it ended up in was good enough for me.

For HDR you need an HDR compatible TV, I think PS only uses the HDR10 format which should be the most compatible. I seriously cannot notice the difference between HDR formats or even non HDR. Im pretty sure I could live without it.

Going back to 30fps is rough though...specially when you've played a game at 60fps and have gotten used to it.

PS5 popped a Trophy playing Astro's, the Trophy stayed in the top right corner. Eventually the PS5 turned off. My save file somehow didn't save and everything I did in Astro's is "gone". I beat it, but probably won't go back to get all the Trophy's at this point.

You have one already

And you also refuse to play digital only games, so we don't agree on principles.

I was under the impression that the Steel Series X headset wouldn't work with the PS5 but it does.

I would love to find a decent headset compatible with both Series X and PS5. Would save me the hassle, space, and money on acquiring two separate headsets.

There's some 3D sound or something that seems to be the issue. I've no idea but that's what I've seen advertised.

I've not been able to notice a difference unless I immediately go from one set to another. They all sound pretty good to me, just volume is limited.

The 7X is marketed for the Series X, but it fully works with PS5 3-D audio (as well as with PC, Switch, etc.). The 3-D audio on PS5 is hardware-driven and will work with any headset.

Good to know. It would be nice if they'd market those things more clearly.

Anyone do the Speed Run stuff for Astros? Despite being annoyed at my system crashing and the save messing up I went back and got the Platinum. not sure if I wanna do the DLC though.

Yeah. I platinumed Astro's. The speed runs were pretty fun. Going quickly on some stages was a little tricky, but the trophy is pretty reasonable since you just need a certain time overall across the stages. You can go extra quickly on stages you're better on to allow more time on the ones that are harder.

I don't normally like to shill, but the site I make content for is giving away a PS5 if anyone is interested. https://twitter.com/PS3Imports/status/137033161050...

Speaking of shilling, the resident Xbox Shill is gone.

It's really noticeable, too. I don't have an Xbox One or Series S/X but I actually like reading the posts in those threads now to see what's going on with them and not have to get through the blatant fanboy posts in between (it'd trickle into the Switch thread too but was much worse in the Xbox ones). What caused him to leave anyway?

It seemed to start after early November. Not sure if it's a correlation, but never posted after November 3rd.

Sometimes they are a scam but I know the people running this one. It will be awarded.

Best Buy?
Honestly paying the extra $100 and buying used games would save you more money in the long run. That's just my opinion though.

The fact that it takes PS4 disks made that a no brainer for me. Backlogs for decades.

Yeah. I have 8+ disks still, although I just found out The Last Guardian is in the PS+ Collection.

Not digital. Those are even harder to get it seems since they make less of them. I like disk games but unlike you I don't refuse to play something unless it's physical.

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