  1. I've been meaning to do this for a while, but now that the rack is made over with the new consoles, I figured it was as good a time as any. My setup is in a two-room cottage behind my house; its bones are actually a cinder-block workshop that a previous owner used as a clock factory for a family business. The back room is used as an office; the larger front room, with vaulted ceilings, is a media room and entertaining space with a kitchenette. There's a full bath as well. Here's the view from behind the back row. I'm using Polk Signature series speakers for the 7.1 base

  2. Good news! Amazon somehow found my PS5 and delivered it this afternoon. Bad news! It doesn't fit in my current TV cabinet. I knew this was going to happen so I ordered a new one a month ago and it was supposed to be delivered last Friday...I still don't have it.

  3. Arrived, unboxed and plugged in but not yet switched on or set up. I'll save that for after lunch. It's every bit as ludicrous as I had hoped though.

  6. I played the Walmart game all day today. Then at 9pm I gave it one last go with my wife on two devices, me on two devices. At 9:06 my phone said "checkout" and then my heart started racing. Got to the next page. And the next page. And then bam, "Thank you for your order." I have very little faith that I'm actually going to get this thing. I'm expected some cancellation email or something heart wrenching soon. But if not , woo hoo!

  11. My PS5 delivery is delayed until tomorrow. 😔 So to placate my retail desires, I ordered an upgrade to my projector screen 😀. Going from 80" to 100" - and this one will be a 'real' screen. Not a super high-end one, but better than what I've been using for over a decade now.

  12. Figured it out. And I feel like a dunce. As it turns out, although you might think that the modular cables on a power supply would be interchangeable, they are not. Different manufacturers apparently wire them differently at the PSU end. Once I switched all the cables to the ones on my (latest) PSU, the machine booted. Thankfully — and fingers crossed — no fatal harm appears to have been done. I was able to go into the BIOS and see that every component was recognized and working (so far,) and it even booted to an old install of Windows — although I will need to do a fre

  20. And that's a Platinum. Interestingly that was the longest straight session I went without a crash. My profile says that took me 19hrs of play (no idea if that includes the cloud sync bug making me re-do 2hrs or so yesterday).

  21. Ok, now we’re getting somewhere! I made it back to the bridge, retrieved my souls, and beat the Phalanx (although I did die on the first attempt).

  22. I had a double dose of next gen gaming arrive at my doorstep this afternoon. Thankfully, everything fits in the entertainment center without issue. I spent the rest of the afternoon getting everything hooked up, updated, and downloaded. I then went and picked up my boys from daycare and school, and surprised them with the two boxes sitting on the table. My 8 year-old is now playing on the PS5 as I type this, playing Farming Simulator 19. He is very impressed with the faster load times. 🤓 I’ll get into both machines after they go to

  25. Some good news for PSVR owners. It seems like patches to take some advantage of PS5 hardware will be happening. It seems like it will not be a PS5 native game though, just boosting the PS4 game. This is acceptable.

  28. Pretty much why I’ll never pay Comcast a dime if I don’t have to. Verizon isn’t exactly customer friendly but data caps aren’t a thing with Fios so they get my money by default.

  29. They emailed me this afternoon to confirm launch day delivery. I just want that charge to come through and I'll breathe one last happy sigh (well, penultimate happy sigh at least. The last can be reserved for taking delivery, hooking it up and finding it all in working order).

  30. I haven’t spent much more than an hour with the system, but aside from getting used to all the menus and such, I really like it. The DualSense is epic and minor tweaks I’d make aside, it’s a perfect evolution of the DualShocks. One thing I forgot in all the hype is that I’ve been using a PS4 the whole time and not a Pro, so there’s a level of fidelity here that for me is light years beyond what I’m used to. And, really, the little improvements like how fast the cursor moves when you’re typing out a password are almost worth the price. QoL shit like that is m

  31. LOL, and just as re-adjust to reality (which, aside from the revelation of my own stupidity, wasn't a big deal), I literally just got a shipment notification for the PS5. It's coming from Oregon and has a delivery date of tomorrow.

  33. Just read this article on ArsTechnica about the experience of using PSVR on the PS5. There are some downsides to consider. Performance wise, it seems to be similar to the general backward compatibility story. Games that had performance issues (which were very rare IME) no longer have them: So really the dongle is a life-preserver for the current set of PSVR games. Not hugely surprising, after the information we've gotten already. I do really hope PSVR2 is on the way in a couple of years, I imagine it could be really great.

  35. I do think the 2.1 spec has too many optional branches. This was already a problem in previous versions but 2.1 kicks it up quite a notch. That leads to the consumer having to make a matrix of features to check box to see if a use case will be supported between Source, switcher and destination. That for sure weakens the interop story. Which leads to the receiver/Panasonic fiasco. It’s not that it’s a bug per say- it seems it is a case of not supporting an optional feature. For higher resolutions/frame rates like 4k@120Hz an hdmi adopter can decide to support link comp
