  1. Latest firmware update released today reports to fix the controller USB charging bug. I'll try it later and see for myself. This system software update improves system performance. An issue where installed disc versions of games were sometimes deleted was resolved. An issue that prevented the PS5 wireless controller from being charged while in rest mode when connected to the PS5's front side USB Type-A port using the USB cable included with some PS5 consoles was resolved. https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/hardware/ps5/system-software/
  2. I still need to buy Hitman 2 and complete the first game, although I am probably better off rolling ownership of both into III and enjoying the visual and a.i enhancements they will receive. They say in this video that native 4k, 60fps, lighting and npc a.i will be patched in to cover the entire trilogy.
  3. It's possible third party devs had a lot less time than first to get to grips with the Dualsense (no pun intended). I think if anything will really show what it can do for racing games it will probably be Gran Turismo. We'll have to wait and see. Dit 5 is tumbling down in price quite quickly. It's already £35 here via a lot of retailers (I'm still having to prioritise Sackboy and Demon's Souls as my next purchases however).
  4. Paramount will release Mousehunt on Blu-ray on 2nd of February. This makes me ludicrously happy. They'll also be releasing Small Soldiers.
  5. Also, the loss of data I had when one of the crashes caused a cloud sync error with my save was likely my fault. When I got the notification about the cloud sync error I continued playing, assuming it was a server bug and something that would fix itself in time. I realised at a later point that I could in fact click the error notification and re-sync, only I think I automatically assumed it would sync from my local save to the cloud, but it seemed to do the reverse and replace my local save with the cloud save prior to the crash that caused error, which was of course a couple of hours behind i
  6. Two out of the six or so crashes I had caused this continued high pitched wince inducing "bbzzzzzzzzttttttttttt" from the audio when it froze and then crashed the system. Those were the most unnerving. I must have played for a good 5hrs straight on Sunday in New Game Plus without a hitch though. The crashes in the game are so random and I wonder if that's what's taking Insomniac so long to figure out the root cause because I found that they always occurred at different times, with no discernible link between what was happening in game (whether it was a cut scene, whether I was swinging, fighti
  7. I noticed something interesting. The few PS4 games I had bought via a secondary US PSN account years ago (Star Wars Battlefront amongst them), and shared to my UK account at the time, can seemingly now be downloaded from the UK store despite having not even set up my US account on my PS5 yet. I always recall my understanding of having multiple-region accounts being that you'd set one region as a kind of parent account, and buy/download what you want, then log into any other regional accounts on the same system and what you downloaded on the parent account would be there to play universally. I
  8. It's 100% on the cards for purchase in late December for me.
  9. I played through MM's game 'Art's Dream,' which is basically the closest thing Dreams has to a story mode with everything having been created entirely with the Dreams toolset and it's simply mind boggling what can be done. It deliberately mixes up genres from platforming, r-type shooters, rhythm action and even point and click adventure. The create tools are definitely going to take some time to get acquainted with.
  10. I was watching various Dreams related videos over lunch and I just have to play with it so I bought it at the current sale price (£17.49 in the UK). I shall now spend the next three years trawling through tutorials and might have an animation cycle up and running by the time the PS6 launches. I'll see how I get on sculpting with the Dualsense. If I really feel I need the Move controllers then I'll consider them next year (I forgot that I'd also have to get the camera as well for those as an added expense).
  11. Good interview with the Apple team on the development of their own chips: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/11/we-are-giddy-interviewing-apple-about-its-mac-silicon-revolution/
  12. 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).
  13. Yeah I haven't put the console into rest mode once due to some of the scare stories, but Miles still crashed plenty of times. It's good that they have patched Spiderman Remastered but I haven't had any notification of a patch for Miles.
  14. On the home stretch. Just the New Game Plus trophies to acquire now. One thing I haven't mentioned is how often this game has crashed my PS5. It's been a good 5-6 times now, never in the same place. Two of those occasions forced the system to have to rebuild itself. Google suggests quite a number of people are encountering it with Miles but nothing else so it seems to be game related rather than hardware.
  15. Just to go back to this. That is indeed how it works. You can just use the app to trigger local crime scenes. I got the trophy. Now to get that damn combo trophy. 🤬
  16. I forgot to give mention to the game's excellent use of music earlier. There's a particularly ingenious music related thing you can do in Miles' apartment which put a big smile on my face. John Paesano delivered a terrific score too: I also loved hearing Christmas music at street level in various parts of the city. It's just another element that helps the game's version of New York feel even richer and vibrant than it did in the previous game. It's so dense with traffic and people, with an endless draw distance and some beautiful lighting at times (especially after
  17. I hadn't thought about doing it on the Combat Training! Excellent idea. I'll try that in the morning. I don't actually know if you can force them to respawn, but you can get a display of current crimes in a single area via the app yes.
  18. I have to say, the time trial/training missions are a certainly more enjoyable this time around than they were in the first game. I didn't have any trouble getting the trophies for those in the end. Also the final training mission that unlocks after you complete the initial ones is very amusing. So I think I just have x24 ceiling takedowns, x100 combo and New Game Plus to achieve to reach Platinum. I was struggling to work out the Crime Master trophy all evening and then after shutting down the PS5 it dawned on me that those missions are all in the phone app, so I'll do those befo
  19. Thanks to Romier for showing me how voice chat and share play worked this evening. It's a bit of a fiddle getting to where you need to get to for accessing those features and Sony definitely need to work on making things clearer and quicker in that respect, but the features themselves are remarkably seamless once up and running. I had his live play of Sackboy pinned to to my screen as I played Miles Morales, and he had my live play pinned as he played Sackboy. I even switched to view his feed in full screen a couple of times. It's really quite brilliant and a great application for
  20. Encountered a cloud sync error and lost a good chunk of my final progress and... I'm not even mad. 😄 Any other game and I might be really annoyed, but just getting to replay that ending again was a treat. From both a gameplay and emotional level it's remarkably satisfying. I did have to redo a few collectible and app missions though, but that left me wondering. Does anyone know if the ending is slightly different depending on your progress with side quests up to a certain point?
  21. I may try that tomorrow. it completed it's charge via my iPhone adapter, so at least I know I can charge it fully.
