@Xirious - all the PS5 registered clients that opted to stay on the list will have an option to confirm their order for allocation. We have been told its a larger allocation as well so we expect to fill all remaining registrations (that received that SMS) in allocation 2
Any news on round 2 of the PS5 preorder?
I got the sms telling me I've been assigned as part of the second round, I replied YES and no response since. Also the SMS isn't clear if I'd be offered a chance to preorder separately or it would just be a mad dash with everyone at the same time to get a preorder in.
@phreak - I think you're not the only one with!-If the news coming from Aus/NZ and Europe is true - lot's of people are going for the more expensive Series X or PS5 blu-ray first which surprised me. I started shifting to digital at the beginning of this gen so when I can get a PS5, it'll be the all-digital one for sure.
This is the big issue, you can,t use the HDMI and A/V connection together.. When you plug the A/V cable in, it covers the HDMI port. If was able to use both, the HDMI for the image and the A/V for audio, problem solved…
I had a mate who stripped the outer cover of an HDMI cable and just left the metal frame and contacts to plug it in at the same time. My set is busted now, but I had a pair of third-party audio splitters that look just like the VGA+audio splitter but with only the audio cables, and they fitted and worked fine with visuals over HDMI.
Anybody currently rocking an M.2 drive in their pc?
I'm currently on a 500gig SSD and I'm thinking of taking the plunge to a 1tb M.2 drive. Are the benefits massive or just kinda ok? The drive will host my OS and a few games
Depends on what type of M.2. If your mobo doesn't support nvme which uses PCI-E then you will get no benefit. If it does you will see an improvement in the boot and transfer speeds, but whether it is enough to justify the cost is a different story.
Check your board specs first and then see if it is worth the cleaner look (no cables) or not. The only reason I use a nvme as ay boot drive was simply because I got a great deal on the drive.
@Tebulot if you watched or read anything about the 3000 series cards I would wait on that nvme upgrade. With support for PCI-E Gen 4 the cards will take advantage of the PCI-E Gen 4 drives that came out with Ryzen 3 and work in a similar fashion to the PS5 SSD in that data from the SSD will be decompressed and processed directly by the GPU and GPU memory instead of going through the CPU and system RAM first. That's going to make faster nvme drives worthwhile.
@Teb - Been a while since we got out since having a child but our last beach holiday was with a group of friends north of Durban in a place called "Tinley Manor". Lot's of places where you can rent a house right on/near a quiet, clean beach, with a river estuary, and fishing spots. It's a family/pet friendly spot but one that only makes sense of you're sharing costs with several people.
