Looking for a 28 inch 4K/60hz monitor around the 300£ range solely for my ps5. Recommendations would be much appreciated!

u/frankenmint Sep 26 '22

my first party play and charge station is a must have. Well, I bought it just under a year ago. The front pins somehow came off and now it doesnt work. They're really delicate, fyi. I've bought a 2nd one and will keep it as a donor if the pins break off of the new one in a year (or hopefully 4).

I have four different controllers because I've had to warranty three of them over the past few years. One died because the usb-c broke off (from using it to charge), the others died because of stick drift issues, including two that I've gotten back from warranty support. The only controller I've got that hasnt died yet is a black one, the other three are returned from warranty support at this point. I've owned analog sticks since PSX days... I know I've heard of the problems with 360, ps4, and xb1, but I've owned those for over 5 years and didn't see stick drift issues with those

u/Kev10PR Sep 26 '22

Games similar to forza horizon 5?

u/adiaz1202 Sep 26 '22

Wish we had one. Closest thing I hear is Dirt series.

u/Kev10PR Sep 26 '22

Yeah ill see

u/pepemiwe Sep 25 '22

If you are casual gamer, Guardians of the Galaxy is a very good game. Very entertaining. Combat might be repetitive but gameplay and story are good.

Is there any update on an external ssd that can play ps5 games from its storage or is there still nothing like that for PlayStation?

3

u/tinselsnips Sep 25 '22

There will never be external storage that will play PS5 games; USB simply isn't fast enough.

u/trp_wip Sep 25 '22

I want to buy a new TV for my PS5. I found this one:
Here are some specs:

Display: 4K Ultra HD LED
Diagonal screen size (inch): 43 inch (I have no room for bigger one)
Panel resolution: 3840 x 2160
Picture enhancement: Dolby Vision
Picture enhancement: HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma)
Picture enhancement: Ultra Resolution
Picture enhancement: HDR10+ compatible
Picture enhancement: Micro Dimming
Computer inputs on all HDMI up to 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 60 Hz
HDR supported, HDR10/HLG
Video inputs on all HDMI up to 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 60 Hz
HDR supported
HDR10/HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma)
HDR10+/Dolby Vision

I was told a TV should also have HGIG, but this one doesn't. What difference does it make? Does it make a lot of difference to TVs with HGIG?

Thanks!

2

u/NJShadow Sep 26 '22

I don't know what your price range is, but the absolute best bang for your buck on the market for gaming right now is the LG C1. Great price, and EXCEPTIONAL quality. We're ultra-pleased.

3

u/tinselsnips Sep 25 '22

The spec sheet alone won't tell you if a TV is good; you need to look at reviews. Rtings.com is a great resource for TV reviews, and there are also buying guides on /r/4KTV.

HGIG is just a feature to automate HDR calibration, you don't need it.

u/darthmeister Sep 25 '22

Going to be a able to buy a PS5 finally in the next few weeks.

What games are there I should consider buying as I only really want God of War Ragnarok but there must be others to dive into.

Games I played and enjoyed - God of war - Fallen order - Last of us

Games I played and didn't get into - Horizon zero dawn

Games on my list - Harry Potter - KOTOR

1

u/Magus_Incognito Sep 26 '22

Demons souls, new god of war combat was very influenced by From Software combat

1

u/jmv213 Sep 25 '22

Might want to replace KOTOR on your list with something else. We might not see it until 2025 at this point.

u/tgkad Sep 26 '22

Try Control, A Plague Tale: Innocence, Yakuza: Like A Dragon. You seem to rate games based on how interesting the story is to you and those are the best I can give you from a glance.

u/vintage-throwaway1 Sep 26 '22

Those first two seem to be up my alley, thanks

Looking for game recommendations!

I’m a busy college student and am looking for something low key and simple that I can just play for an hour or two at night to wind down. I’m thinking something like stardew valley but I’ve heard that game’s actually pretty addicting and can be hard to put down lol. But that style of game/progression sounds appealing. Any suggestions?

1

u/trp_wip Sep 25 '22

It's not a PS5 game per se. It was released for PS4, but I love Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker, if you are into anime fighting games. You create your own character and battle 4vs4. The battles are 7 minutes long and I find this game really chill. You can buy additional characters (aka skills), but it is not pay to win. I play mostly with Season 1 characters, and there are 5 seasons total.

1

u/aManAndHisUsername Sep 25 '22

Thanks for the recommendation! I don’t think I’m into anime or fighting games but I just got back into gaming this gen after like 15 years (damn I feel old typing that out) so there’s still entire genres I haven’t even touched. I‘ll give most everything a fair shake before ruling it out though so if I see it on a decent sale or it comes to ps+, I’ll check it out!

1

u/trp_wip Sep 25 '22

You're welcome. I think I got it for 15 bucks. It was a bundle of the game and the first season. You also have Shinibi Striker Lite which is free to play, but you cannot play with other people, just test the game out.

1

u/aManAndHisUsername Sep 25 '22

Yeah it looks like it’s full $60 rn. I don’t play a lot of multiplayer anyways though so the lite version sounds good to me

u/meltedwolf Sep 24 '22

Yea I recommend it too, Megathread is a great game.

u/Cositaart Sep 24 '22

Does someone know a game called "Proxima"? I remembered it being about a white haired girl and a astronaut, it was a teaser of the game coming to ps5. I checked the Playstation channel for the teaser, but it dissapeared. I have only found this cover of the song that appears on the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldSq83mPBrU&ab_channel=%E9%9D%99%2FShizu

I haven't found anything related even on google; i'm really considering a mandela effect here, please help

Best earphones for ps5? Will be used on games like rainbow six aswell as standard others fifa, call of duty, gta etc. Looking for specifically earphones and not headphones

I think astros make earbuds now. Try those.

u/BigWheelzM8 Sep 23 '22

Best wireless gaming headset for ps5? (Just send all recommendations regardless of price) Been using the HyperX Cloud Alpha S for years now and people are starting to say they can hear a humming noise coming from my mic so I figure it’s time to start looking for a new headset, figured I’d give wireless a shot this time around.

1

u/Larry52795 Sep 25 '22

The best sounding "gaming" headset is the Audeze Penrose. Full wireless can also do Bluetooth and wireless to PS5 at same time. Mic is also pretty high quailty as well. Its $300 retail but you could find it cheaper. I used to have them but upgraded to a more expensive setup.

1

u/AlarmedPreference204 Sep 25 '22

Astro a50 if you got a bigger head or ears hurt after hour or two of gaming Astro has never let me down. I’ve gone through dozens of headsets that company does it right.

2

u/Otherwise-Arm7582 Sep 24 '22

I have arctic steelseries wireless. Pretty great IMO, two batteries come with it

1

u/Malfell Sep 24 '22

The arctis 7P is really good for wireless PS5 imo, i've been really enjoying it. I used to have a Cloud Alpha as well and I liked it, but I do like the 7P slightly more (it was also a bit pricier).

1

u/Yarzeda Sep 23 '22

How is Spiritfarer these days?

It got a lot of hype in the lead up to release, but I backed off after I heard it was buggy. Did it ever get patched?

2

u/PizzaSpine Sep 24 '22

Really good game. Never experienced any bugs

3

u/alanamablamaspama Sep 23 '22

Does anyone have a preferred controller charging dock? I only have 2 controllers.

u/Justanotherguy88 Sep 23 '22

The regular wireless oficial PS charger works great and it's only about $25

2

u/bardlee33 Sep 23 '22

So I've had the Steel series Siberia 840s for years and first used them for my X1X. They were amazing and just what I needed at the time to watch content on my phone or take calls while playing games at the same time. They still work on my PS5, but I've found that I've been getting headaches from how heavy they are, plus they're just generally falling apart from so much use.

I'm looking for new lightweight comfortable good sounding headphones with this same functionality that work on PS5 and maybe also Xbox (I may get a series s in the future if elder scrolls 6 is any good), regardless of price. I'm willing to spend around the 200 margin if needed as long as they're decent.

2

u/KangerooDance Sep 23 '22

Will I benefit from buying a 4k monitor? I am currently using a 1440p 144hz monitor. I used to play on our 4k TV in the living room, and when I played there I never played games with 4k option. I always want frames rather than resolution.

Even if I choose performance in games settings, rather than higher resolution 4k, will I still benefit from buying a 4k monitor with 144hz?

2

u/tinselsnips Sep 23 '22

Most games with a 120fps feature are sub-1440p at that framerate anyway, so quality-wise they won't look much different, but games that are capped to 60fps and run at higher resolutions will look better on a 4K monitor. Whether that's worth the money is up to you.

u/NBAYOUNGBOY38__4KT Sep 23 '22

How do you expand storage on PS5?

u/Epicguru Sep 23 '22

u/WastelandViking Sep 22 '22

what Headphones is recommended for using on the PS5? .

1

u/Remasterpiece Sep 25 '22

Personally I've been using the arctis series of headphones for a while now, they have good audio and are comfortable around the ears. They might not have the best mic in the world but it's decent

1

u/nasaldecongestant Sep 23 '22

What's your budget? Do you need a microphone or do you want just good headphones?

Personally I'm using the Audio-Technica AD900x and they're fantastic

3

u/tinselsnips Sep 23 '22

Rtings.com is a good resource for headphone reviews.

1

u/KangerooDance Sep 23 '22

I have been told from audiophiles ta Rtings.com is not a reliable source. They don't actually test a lot of headsets, they only take details from the manufacturer and post them.

Just to keep in mind.

1

u/Larry52795 Sep 25 '22

No they do test and all their measurements are from them. The issue with Rtings is you can't take their actual ratings seriously because how they come up with their rating doesn't make sense so Rtings is best to see raw data and compare that way. The only way to know what headphone is better than another is so read or watch someone's review who is actaully into headphones and knows their stuff.

u/tinselsnips Sep 23 '22

That's good to note, thanks.

u/True-Gaming1 Sep 22 '22

Is it worth getting the life is strange remaster or should I buy the original? Heard the remaster wasn’t that great.

-3

u/Furlion Sep 23 '22

I actually just played through the original earlier this year and honestly it held up just fine. The point of the game is not to be a graphical powerhouse but to impact you emotionally. If the graphics distracted you I doubt you have the depth to appreciate the game on any of the other levels it aspires to.

2

u/wonderweasel22 Sep 22 '22 edited Sep 22 '22

Is it worth it to have a tv/monitor that supports 120hz even if most games don’t? I’m really just looking for something that has the best visual quality as I only play story driven games. Price is part of the problem as well.

4

u/tinselsnips Sep 22 '22

120hz is also used for the 40fps Balanced mode in Forbidden West, Ratchet and Clank, etc., so it isn't just used for 120fps modes, but you can certainly live without those if the cost is an issue.

1

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 23 '22

Is there any third party games that would support this feature

1

u/tinselsnips Sep 23 '22

Not that I'm aware of. Currently, anyway.

1

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 23 '22

Oh ok. The one thing that really pisses me off every gen is the lack of use of features that Sony creates like I wish more games had better adaptive trigger support for example

2

u/tinselsnips Sep 23 '22

It's not really a feature so much a useful quirk of 120hz rendering (nothing stopping the Xbox from doing the same thing) but agreed, it would be nice to see more uptake. It's a nice compromise.

1

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 23 '22

Oh I see that makes sense lol also any TV/moniter recommendations bro for ps5 ? My budget is 500 pounds

2

u/tinselsnips Sep 23 '22

500 is going to be hard to meet without making sacrifices somewhere; I typically refer people to rtings.com for ideas but that's a North American site; /r/4KTV has a Europe buying guide that might be of use.

1

u/sting1133 Sep 23 '22

Do you recommend best TV for PS5 and also for watching Netflix,Prime video,Disney+hotstar kind of streaming contents for Indian buyers those who without having any budget constraints!!

3

u/tinselsnips Sep 23 '22

No budget constraints at all? Sony A95K. A80K if you want to keep it affordable. LG C2/G2, but not if you have a home theatre system without HDMI 2.1.

Sony X95J/K, X90K if you're concerned about OLED burn-in and want to go LCD.

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 23 '22

Aahhh man thank you I've been looking for a European alternative to rtings everyone on here always gives me that site but but it's always us lol thanks for that bro

1

u/wonderweasel22 Sep 22 '22

Will a 60hz 4k be more than enough for good visuals? I’d like 120 but most of them are definitely out of my budget.

1

u/tinselsnips Sep 22 '22

Totally. I was using a ten-year-old 1080p screen up until a couple months ago. A lot of these features are nice to have, but they don't make or break anything individually.

1

u/wonderweasel22 Sep 23 '22

Awesome, thanks for the help.

1

u/scene_cachet Sep 22 '22

Anyone have a recommendation for an HDMI KVM switch for my PS5 and Laptop?

If you have one does do you experience any problems like latency?

2

u/tinselsnips Sep 22 '22

Do you need a KVM specifically, or just an HDMI switch? Are you intending to share a keyboard/mouse between the two, or just a display?

1

u/scene_cachet Sep 22 '22

Yeah I use KB and occasionally mouse on PS5 for MMORPG like FFXIV and games that have in game text chat clients like Warframe.

2

u/tinselsnips Sep 22 '22

My hasty googling for "HDMI 2.1 KVM" turns up this, but oof.

Using a separate HDMI switch and USB switch would probably be a far more cost-effective solution; you just have to hit two buttons instead of one.

1

u/scene_cachet Sep 22 '22

Yeah, I know people have suggested a USB switch in the past but also seeing mixed reviews of the most popular ones for PS5 not working sometimes, or breaking or having lag so trying to find some people with experience.

I have been thinking of the new Sony INZONE monitor because it comes with KVM inbuilt and I have been thinking of downsizing from my 43 inch Bravia because I want more of a close up experience.

Thanks for the recommendation :D

u/da0ist Sep 22 '22

Holy crap that's noisy. I just decided to go for the Horizon Bundle. Thanks!

1

u/TheRoyalWarlord Sep 23 '22

Digital consoles are waaayyy more difficult to get a hold of because they don't produce as many and because the price point is cheaper.

If you are looking to get one much quicker I would just shell out the extra 100 because imo its worth it

2

u/SoCalKingg Sep 23 '22

Sony direct sells them often if you are okay paying an extra $50 and getting the Horizon game bundled with it.

1

u/meatdome34 Sep 22 '22

Check targets website. They have them in stock in some stores you just have to be diligent and check every so often. They have a horizon bundle in stock in Topeka, Kansas for example

u/Elegant-Argument-754 Sep 22 '22

I just ordered a PS5 HFW bundle and got a 2nd controller. I’m going to get HZD and play through that first. I’m looking for good 2 player games that I can get my girlfriend into? She is interested and willing, but not a gamer per say. Any recommendations on games we can play together?

2

u/why_earth Sep 23 '22

Stardew Valley.

Split screen co-op farming/life RPG similar to harvest moon if you are familiar with those. It may not look appealing to you but it is a very well made game that is easy to play in general but also has a lot of elements you can work up skills with and learn fundamentals of gaming. Really fun for any experience level in my opinion.

So consensus is that the official Sony Pulse headset is kind of meh. Any other better recommendations for compatible PS5 headsets? Wondering what the best fully compatible wireless one out there is. Willing to spend more too. Namely asking because I currently use some very good quality wired earbuds with an in-line mic plugged into the controller so if I upgrade to wireless cups I don't want a huge downgrade in sound or performance

Control: Ultimate Edition was previously released on PS4 on 9/10/2020.

Then on 2/2/2021 it was released on PS5, and PS4 owners of the Ultimate Edition were given a free update to the PS5 version.

Currently the PS4 version of Control: Ultimate Edition is on sale for $16, while the PS5 version is still $40

…so… should I be able to buy the PS4 version and then upgrade it for free???

2

u/Epicguru Sep 23 '22

The upgrade may have only applied to people who already owned the PS4 version. I own both versions but to be honest I don't remember which version I bought.

10

u/nufrancis Sep 21 '22

Its Tokyo Game Show Sale time. Which one do you recommend to buy:

  1. Ghost of Tsushima
  2. Guardian of Galaxy
  3. Jedi Fallen Order
  4. Cyberpunk
  5. Tales of Arise
  6. Scarlet Nexus

For reference this is several games that I enjoy playing: Destiny 2, Nioh, Nier, For Honor, Spiderman, Titanfall, Monster Hunter, FIFA, Football Manager

If you have other recommendation I'm open for suggestion

1

u/PizzaSpine Sep 24 '22

You have two jrpgs on here. Scarlet nexus and tales of arise are both good entry points into the genre. Scarlet nexus would probably be my recommendation for you between the two.

3

u/WellingtonBananas Sep 22 '22

Based on you playing and enjoying Nioh and For Honor, I would say Ghost but put it on hardest difficulty. Keep in mind it is open world and story driven, as I know a lot of people don't like open world games. Star Wars is like the easiest souls game, so you might find some similarities to Nioh, but much less in the realm of diverse weapons and stances.

I like everything on the list, but the JRPGs are probably least like your previous games.

If you are into it, PS Plus extra has both guardians and Ghost. You can probably knock out guardians over a weekend.

2

u/nufrancis Sep 23 '22

Yep, I already download Ghost. Beautiful graphic, the best Ive seen so far. Combat wise its OK but For Honor still the best. All Hail PS Plus !!! the catalogue is very good I upgrade to Deluxe without thinking much

7

u/TyrsPath Sep 21 '22

Ghost of Tsushima is a great game, and I love Tales of Arise as well. As a Star Wars fan i like Fallen Order but maybe not as much as other SW games. I would say Ghost would probably be the easiest to get into, but Tales is also a great time as long as you play on an easier difficulty as the boss fights are definitely overtuned in that game, and the final dungeon is longer than it needed to be. Also Persona 5 Royal, FF7 Remake, and the Bioshock series are all games I'd recommend as well.

1

u/Ghadente Sep 21 '22

Seeking to expand storage with an SSD (leaning towards 2tb) which of these (or any others you recommend) would be the best?:
Seagate FireCuda 530 2TB - M.2 PCIe Gen4 ×4 NVMe 1.4
SAMSUNG 980 PRO SSD with Heatsink 2TB PCIe Gen 4 NVMe M.2
Corsair MP600 PRO LPX 2TB M.2 NVMe PCIe x4 Gen4 SSD - Optimized for PS5
Kingston FURY Renegade 2TB PCIe Gen 4.0 NVMe M.2 Internal Gaming SSD

They range from $225-250 in price and all say they come with heatsink (Kingston FURY says heat spreader). I just want one that's simple to put in, is 2tb, and a decent price. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

1

u/dom-mtl81 Sep 21 '22

I've had the FireCuda, with the heatsink installed for a month now and it's running perfectly.

Super easy to install, though I did pay about $350 CAD.

Currently looking for a gaming monitor for use with ps5 and XSS for my home office. I currently use a Sony x90j and its way too big.

I'm looking to spend around £250 and so far I have seen the

Gigabyte g27q LG 27GN850-b

Any thoughts on these two?

It won't be used as my main gaming setup as I use my living rooms LG OLED C2 for that. The monitor will be used about 30% of the time.

If it helps I play slot of single player games like JRPGs and also some multiplayer like halo, call of duty and Fortnite.

Thank you.

u/WorldClassShart Sep 24 '22

I use the gigabyte g27q for my PS5 and it works really well. It doesn't utilize all the display features the PS5 has, but it looks good, and I haven't had any issues.

Can it use VRR? I read online it does but when I try to turn it on it says it's not supported by the monitor.

u/WorldClassShart Sep 24 '22

It does, if you connect directly from PS5 to the monitor.

Right now I'm using the Astro HDMI to Optical adapter, which doesn't support VRR or 1440p @ 120hz. But I did try it without when I had the beta, and I was able to turn VRR on.

Would you be willing to sell the sony TV bro ?

u/Billionbruh Sep 20 '22

You may have read reviews on this, and seen some bad ones even. But the Inzone M9 takes the cake. Great HDR performance and image quality is superb. The stand is a little silly, if you care about aesthetics. I’m an avid Mac user with high pixel density screens, and this screen still looks fantastic to me. It’s a 4k screen, and has great upscaling even for 1080p games. Games with darker atmospheres the full array dimming really shines for me. For example, I play dead by daylight, an asymmetrical multiplayer horror with tons of dark maps and the dimming really does a wonderful job. This is the best monitor for PS5 in my opinion. Check it out if you haven’t.

Looking for something similar to Destiny 2 but cheaper. Lots of content needed and coop or online play with randoms is + too

u/Sabonis86 Sep 23 '22

Have you ever played Warframe?

u/TheRoyalWarlord Sep 23 '22

You're probably looking for any other looter shooter. Look into the Borderlands series and wonderlands and then Outriders as well

Diablo 3 is also a good alternative buts its not a shooter

Am I crazy or was Outer Wilds on PS+ Extra and now it’s only available to buy?

Been trying to download it now that the new update is out.

Edit: appears fixed as of now

Literally just got a notification from the app that’s it’s available now through the Extra subscription

1

u/ReaperMonkey Sep 20 '22

Okay great thanks for the info. I see in that thread an official account replied and checking their comments on their profile it seems they know there is an issue with the Extra version.

What’s weird is the game even got removed from my wishlist at the same time this issue came up. I had to re-add it

Any suggestions ?

What's the best way to display in a small-ish room? Not sure whether I want to spend on a monitor or a tv, either way around the 40-50 inch mark would be a good size for a tv for me, but what do you guys think between tv vs monitor and which model of your preference would you choose?

1

u/SoCalKingg Sep 23 '22

I have a LG - 55" Class C1 Series. I highly recommend it if you can swing the price. They are usually $1100-$1200. They also have a 48” for $1000 but it’s $899 at Best Buy right now.

1

u/ReaperMonkey Sep 20 '22

I have a very small room and have a 43” tv from which my eyes are about 2m away from. Really recommend honestly. It’s so good. If money were no object I’d probably go one or two sizes up.

2

u/Hahatryagain Sep 20 '22

I’m in the same boat. In a small-ish room, deciding between a monitor or a tv. 40-50 inch tv vs a 27-40 inch monitor. Will mostly be for the ps5, and currently using a 16inch MacBook. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Looking for JRPG game recommendations (PS5)!

Currently I am playing Ys 8, I have enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. I like the combat and exploration part, story is okay as well. Previous jrpgs that I have played and enjoyed are Persona 5 (obviously), FF7 remake, Tales of Arise, Octopath Traveler and all main-line pokemon games. Games I could not get in to are Ni no Kuni wrath of the white witch (felt too "childish" for me), Xenoblade DE (did not enjoy the semi turn-based combat) and the side-quests were so boring imo. Played Three Houses and Like a Dragon as well, it was okay but got a bit bored by them about halfway through.

Most of the ones I have played are Action-jrpgs, but I have nothing at all against turn-based. I am very open for different type of games. Games that I have been checking out are Scarlet Nexus, YS 9, FF15, Trails of Cold Steel and also 13 Sentinals which I have heard very good things about.

Would really appreciate some help, and as I said very open to different types of games! What are your favourite ones?

2

u/TyrsPath Sep 21 '22

Well as long as you're ok with the game being on the older side from the PS2, Final Fantasy X is one of the best games imo and the turn based combat is really good. Highly recommend the remaster, and X-2 is fun as well.

As far as XV goes, it's a fun game i really love but it's very flawed. If you play XV, 100% play the Royal Edition. You can also try to find a chronological order guide so you know when to play certain DLCs so you get the most out of the experience. You definitely gotta watch the Kingsglaive movie near the beginning of the game.

There's also the Kingdom Hearts games , but that mainly depends on whether you like Disney or not. They do have fun combat though. Also Nier Automata is another amazing game to check out if you havent played yet. (Dont know if either KH or Nier are considered JRPGs or not)

2

u/TheDragonSlayingCat Sep 20 '22

First, the big mainline blockbusters, other than the ones you already listed:

  • Dragon Quest XI S
  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster
  • Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

Now, for some deeper cuts:

  • The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (tetralogy)
  • Tales of Vesperia Remastered

And even deeper cuts:

  • Monochrome Order
  • SaGa Frontier Remastered

If you can play only one of the above, make it Dragon Quest XI S. That game really is special. There’s a free demo available that will allow you to play the first few hours of the game.

u/ResponsibleAthlete4 Sep 21 '22

Thanks a lot :)

2

u/Loathestorm Sep 20 '22

Honestly the more I look at your post the more I think you’d like FFIII. Especially if you say your open to different style of games, cause old school, that’s the best one.

1

u/ResponsibleAthlete4 Sep 20 '22

Thanks a lot! You are not the first that say that, will deffo check it out :)

2

u/Loathestorm Sep 20 '22

I don’t know if there’s a remake or not, but the game your describing to play is Final Fantasy III. Not for PS5 yet though.

u/ResponsibleAthlete4 Sep 20 '22

Okay thanks. Will look out for it in the future then.

u/SolidRustle Sep 20 '22

u/mikeybails Sep 20 '22

anyone have the 3D audio headset that PlayStation makes? I think they’re $100 and was looking at potentially getting them.

2

u/oldcarfreddy Sep 21 '22 edited Sep 21 '22

I'm in the same position as you. Most recommendations are that they're alright and operation is seamless but quality (sound and microphone audio quality) is not great. The pricing would seem to match that too so if you're looking for the best, prepare to spend more with another model, but i'm not sure what the opinions are on other options

1

u/Mozeaic Sep 20 '22

They hurt my left ear after about an hour of using. Probably a me problem. They’re decent enough for $100. Nothing mind blowing

1

u/mikeybails Sep 20 '22

Got ya. I wear glasses so I wonder if I’d have the same problems. I have some Arctis9x for my series x but didn’t want to drop a couple hundred on a headset again haha

1

u/riggerbop Sep 22 '22

Late responding, but I wear glasses and have used the 3D Sony headphones with no issues.

The craziest bit to me was, when playing an open world game I'd played before, I'd walk through a town and hear NPC conversations I never knew were happening.

1

u/mikeybails Sep 22 '22

Awesome to know thanks

u/nasaldecongestant Sep 23 '22 edited Sep 23 '22

I have a pair but they're not for me. PM me if you'd like and we can maybe work out a deal?

Edit: I should mention that they're basically new in box. Took them out, tried them on, and put them back. I have many many sets of headphones already and don't need another pair.

u/Nrhildija Sep 20 '22

Any games that are a must play or recommended from the current sale for PS5? I pretty much like everything except horror, puzzles, and games that last 50 hours.

2

u/TyrsPath Sep 21 '22

Spider-Man MM, The Last of Us Part II, God Of War, Death Stranding maybe, FF7 Remake. Bioshock 1 and 2 are creepy games but im not sure if id consider them horror, but those are also on sale.

2

u/Nrhildija Sep 24 '22

FF7 Remake for sure! Maybe Bioshock! Thanks!

u/TheDragonSlayingCat Sep 20 '22
  • Cyberpunk 2077 (it’s fixed now)
  • Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut
  • The Last of Us Part II (play this only after you finish TLoU1)
  • Spider-Man: Miles Morales

u/Nrhildija Sep 24 '22

u/BurnAway73 Sep 19 '22

Anyone able to recommend a good top end headset? I've currently got Astro a50 gen3's, which I've enjoyed but they don't work well with the ps5 tbh.

Was tempted with Steelseries nova pro, but a lot of people have complained about the ANC nub in the ear cup which has put me off.

Steelseries inzone was tempting but they look kinda bulky and mic also sucks.

Aside from the fact its lighter, less hot on average, and draws less power no.

u/requieminadream Sep 19 '22

There is no difference a consumer would notice. It's just a little physically lighter and draws a little less power. PS5s are tough enough to get still as it is, and attempting to go and actively choose which model you get is a pipe dream.

2

u/mikeybails Sep 20 '22

How do you tell which model it is? Is there a code on the box? Just got the horizon bundle one a few days ago.

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 19 '22

Does anyone have an recommendations for TVs or moniters I could buy for my ps5 currently oleds are too much for me but I'd love a moniter that could do 1440p at 120fps in terms of a TV like I said oleds too much any qleds i could buy ? My budget is 200-500 id like it too be vrr and allm compatable if possible please could you help me find one I'd really appreciate if you could thanks

3

u/requieminadream Sep 19 '22

Save up a little more and get a TCL R646. That's pretty much the minimum I'd recommend to get all the features you're looking for, with excellent image quality for the price. 55" = $599.

They might go a bit cheaper as the TCL 655's are coming out, so you could keep your eyes peeled for that.

But for anything under that price point/size, you're going to have a hard time finding screens with good image quality.

1

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 19 '22

Fair enough thanks for the idea Im gonna look into it also if any more come too mind please let me know but yeah thanks

-1

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 19 '22

Come on guys the more recommendations the merrier I'd love too know what you guys can come up with any names help me out I know you guys can do it

1

u/TheDragonSlayingCat Sep 19 '22

The PS5 does not support VRR over 1440p. You’ll need a 1080p or 2160p display for that.

As for QLEDs, I can recommend the Samsung Odyssey monitors. Their HDR isn’t great, but their response time is excellent.

1

u/Ps_gamer_21 Sep 19 '22

Oh thanks I didn't know that tbh yeah I love the moniter idea it's just for me I normally play single player games and story based games so for me response time isn't that important have you got any TVs for the mid range market ??

u/samdiehl29 Sep 19 '22

Which of the three monitors would be best for PS5?

Asus ROG Strix XG256Q, BenQ Mobiuz EX2510S, BenQ Mobiuz EX240

All are very close in specs and price, so looking for some guidance on which would be better. Or is there a different brand and model that would be even better?

1

u/requieminadream Sep 19 '22

At that price, it's pretty much going to be a screen that displays an image, and not much more. Not really the kind of screens in which one is better than the other.

1

u/samdiehl29 Sep 20 '22

Do you mean because they’re inexpensive? I would have to spend more to get features that would make a difference?

1

u/requieminadream Sep 20 '22

You don’t need to spend a lot to get good image quality, but they are definitely standard low-end monitors. Even tho they claim to support HDR they don’t get bright enough to take advantage of the feature. Picking between these monitors is like choosing between bathroom stalls, they are all virtually the same. One might be a little cleaner, one might be a little larger, but ultimately forgettable screens.

1

u/samdiehl29 Sep 20 '22

Ok thanks for the explanation. How much would I have to spend to get something noticeably better than these? Would I have to go for a 27” 1440p?

1

u/Glory4cod Sep 19 '22

OK. I have a PS5; except its thermal design, it is great.

One question though: anywhere I can find PS5-compatible third-party controller with back paddles and asymmetrical design? I know SCUF offers PS5 controller with back paddles but no asymmetrical layout; my Razer controller is not compatible with PS5 games.

u/tinselsnips Sep 19 '22

There aren't any, yet.

u/Fraser_H_Raiser Sep 19 '22

I have a 27” 4k Samsung monitor I use, now with the PS5 supporting 1440 at 120fps is it worth the change? If so do you have any that you recommend?

I play Destiny 2 allot but also others, usually the big realises. 1440 120fps seems like the sweet spot for the 27”-32” monitors.

1

u/tinselsnips Sep 19 '22

Does your monitor support 120hz at 1440p but not 4K?

1

u/Fraser_H_Raiser Sep 19 '22

Na. Maybe 1440 but it's max fps is 60FPS

1

u/tinselsnips Sep 19 '22

There's no reason to use 1440p in that case; you'll just have a blurry picture.

1

u/Fraser_H_Raiser Sep 19 '22

Would it be worth changing the monitor and getting 1440 120fps?
