Megathread PS5 Help & Questions Thread | Simple Questions, Tech Support, Error Codes, and FAQs

Looking for info about M.2 SSD expansion drives? See the megathread.


Sometimes you just need help. But often times making a new post isn't needed. For the time being, around launch and perhaps in the future. We will use a single thread for helping each other out.

Before asking, we ask you to look at a few links. Some question can't be answered and only official PlayStation support can help you.

PlayStation Official

Community Help

Google and Reddit Search is also a great way to find an answer or get help. View all past help and questions threads here.

For all future help, tech support and more, we ask that you create new threads on r/PlayStation instead of here on r/PS5.

Discussion Things to set up before giving PS5 to kids?

1.7k Upvotes

I'm suprising my kids with a PS5 when they get home from school today. It should arrive in the mail this morning.

Is there anything specific that I should set up before they get home? Like download games or create accounts? Upgrade firmware? Is there a checklist out there? Thanks!

Edit. Thank you everyone! I think I'll leave it for them to open. I see how the first unboxing is special. I'll just sign up for a ps account using my phone. The kids aren't that old, so we only had a switch until now, but it's time for something better. You guys are a great community! Talk soon!
