    MastaRedSnappa got a reaction from Starhawk in The PlayStation 5 (PS5) Thread — Launching November 12, 2020 | $499 Regular, $399 Digital   
    My wife gave me a PS5, Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition, Sack Boy, and a 2nd controller for our anniversary so I'm now part of the next generation like all the cool kids. I had been only playing my Switch and using my PS4 to play Beat Saber so it's been fun getting back into Playstation gaming again. It was also a pleasant surprise to see the Playstation Plus Collection included. I didn't realize that was even a thing. The PS5 is so much quieter than my PS4 too. If it wasn't for the glowing lights, I wouldn't even know the PS5 was on.

    I ended up buying this iovroigo halo strap on Amazon (it's $36.99 + a 5% off coupon):

    Compared to the Elite strap, the build quality isn't up to par. It just feels a little cheaper. However, the halo strap design does alleviate all the pressure of the headset on your face. It does a good job of approximating what the PSVR feels like. If I had to do it again, I would buy this over the Elite strap.
     
    I also bought AMVR lens protectors so that my glasses can't come in to contact with the Quest 2's lenses. They work well (I bought a different brand that was cheaper and the lens protectors didn't even protrude past the center of the lenses that stick out so they provided no protection). I can now get rid of the glasses spacer that comes with the Quest 2.

    Some quick Oculus Quest 2 accessories reviews:
     
    Elite Head Strap - It is a huge improvement on the comfort and ease of getting it to fit your head correctly. Should've been included with the Oculus Quest 2.
     
    VR Cover silicone face cover - It is much more comfortable than the foam face cover. Even though it is just made out of silicone, it feels like it adds more padding. Easy to put on and take off to clean (or you can just wipe it down without taking it off). One negative is that it makes the fit for my glasses a lot tighter.

    Received my Quest 2 last night. The included head strap and foam face thingy are pretty whack compared to the PSVR. The tracking and being completely wireless is so much better though. I like the convenience of the built-in speakers too. I ordered a VR Cover silicone cover for the foam face thingy and I picked up the Elite strap today.
     
    I haven't set up multiple user accounts yet. Does Beat Saber support app sharing between multiple user accounts?

    Congrats on the new headset 😊 Not sure on Q2 about sharing games between accounts but, this did not work on PC Oculus for me.

    I love how fast paced and chaotic the games get. I just got my first victory after 20 games (~45 min of playtime). It's a really great addition to NSO. It's a shame they took Mario 35 away because these exclusive battle royale remixes of classic games are a big part of NSO's appeal to me since Nintendo is so lax about adding more NES/SNES games to NSO.

    Pac-Man 99, a battle royale re-working of the original Pac-Man, released today on the eShop. It's free with NSO subscription like Tetris 99.
     
    [Edit] It is available to download but as of now, it cannot be played yet.

    Google Stadia is officially available on iOS via Safari:

    Also, xCloud is coming to iOS in Spring 2021 via Safari:
    xCloud Is Finally Coming to iOS and PC in Spring 2021 – TouchArcade
     
    My main interest in these cloud game streaming services is not having to download and install games that can go as high as 100GB. I tried Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on my Xbox One and I liked it but my 500GB hard drive quickly filled up with just a handful of games. Also waiting to download 50-100GB games just to try them (and also making room for them) to see if I like them is such a hassle. Being able to try games in the cloud in a matter of seconds has a lot of synergy with a subscription gaming service.

    I tried it out. The best things I can say is that it works and it's not terrible.  In the age of bluetooth and airplay, it seems a little... antiquated.

    I haven't seen Jack either. I still play it every day. One of my co-workers got it about a month ago so I play it more now. We can compare turnip prices and buy/sell on whichever person's island has the best prices. ACNH couldn't have come out at a better time than in 2020. It's relaxing gameplay is a great salve for all the craziness the world is going through.

    I've been wanting to move my ACNH island from my regular Switch to my Switch Lite since I never really play ACNH on my TV and I prefer the Lite for handheld play. So today, I bit the bullet and called Nintendo to transfer my island. Even though it says on their website that they'll only do it if your Switch with your island on it is lost or broken, I just told them that I wanted to transfer my island and they never asked me for a reason. The customer rep was nice and walked me through the steps and now it's done. So if you are thinking of moving your island too, it's a very easy process. I'm still not sure why Nintendo doesn't just allow you to do it without their intervention (like with the Pokemon Sword/Shield save).
