What a mission and still not 100% sure my preorder is good. Got in queue for Sony direct, purchased and boop, BoA transaction needs to be confirmed if its fraud or not! Wth! Typically that forces you to redo the transaction since it declines the first. Then again, it's just a hold on Playstations part and don't charge till shipping.

Order still shows at Playstation and received an email. I think I got it? :messenger_grinning_sweat:

Enough with the fake tweet drop and runs, or your time in this thread (or site) will be up.

Gaslighting the already petty and juvenile wars- my patience is wearing thin.

Those who are being duped, proofread before you post. You only have yourselves to blame in the end.
Are the admins considering locking this thread now that almost everything has been revealed?

It has to be a pain for you and your fellow mods to constantly watch this thread.

What does any of this mean
It looks to me to be the Chinese regulatory acceptance of the wifi frequencies for the PS5, similar to what the FCC does in the US.

Every electronics component released that transmits/receives radio waves has to be tested to make sure it does not interfere with other devices, and that they operate within the proper bands for those standards (wifi, bluetooth, etc).

Hmmm...but I thought the Project Awakening trailer had said something about being done by one person or a very small team. Also didn't have those tattoos on faces. Looked more like a Dark Souls or Monster Hunter type of game to me.

I have an 8K TV and there is literally zero content out there for it. Good for upscaling though and being future-proofed but that’s about it.
Hey I was willing to get one of those would you mind telling me how good it is? (I presume it's the samsung one)
It's upscalling and reactivity for example.

Thought about making a thread, and putting all the screenshots there, organized.

Yeah, I have the Samsung 65" QLED Q900R. (8K)

I hadn’t gotten a Samsung before was previously sticking to Panasonics and I am extremely happy with it.

I only pay for 1080P Netflix but the images upscale extremely well to the point I don’t think I’d get anything out of going beyond it.

It’s also very snappy to use the menu system and I can pull up an app in seconds.

Well one take away is Wi-Fi 6 is supported in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Nice. The initial Wi-Fi 6 routers from ubiquiti only support Wi-Fi 6 in the 5GHz band even though the spec allows for use in both 2.4/5GHz.
Yeah, I'm actually very excited for the wifi-6 support. The PS4 and even my PS4Pro is pretty slow online. The Pro was a HUGE jump over the "regular" PS4 but still nothing near the throughput I get on other devices. So I'm very hopeful that online speeds were a bottleneck that Sony paid attention to. We will see!

Wifi is for cellphones, not gaming. Please don't do this to yourself.
Even a powerlink is better than anything wifi.

It seems to be cheaper to buy the PS4 version of Spider Man Miles Morales, and play it on the PS5 with the PS5 upgrade, rather than buy the more expensive PS5 version..... Or am I missing something?

Project Awakening is being made by CY Games. Nothing on their website even suggests the 2 are related.

WI-Fi 6 is unlikely to fix that for you. The PS4 only supported 2.4GHz and Wi-Fi 4. The Pro supports 2.4/5GHz with Wi-Fi 5 and providing you set up your pro to only connect on the 5GHz connection, you should see a big improvement over the base PS4.

Wi-Fi 6 can improve latency and speed, but you'll need all your devices, and your neighbors devices that are using the same channel to be on Wi-Fi 6 to really see a massive improvement. It's important it's there in terms of future proofing. You'll still be using this console in 6-7 years and you don't want that holding you back.

If I’m right and the price increase is because of the new 100GB discs then digital PS5 games should be cheaper than disc based ones.

Ok thanks. To clarify, I meant the disc versions. There is roughly a £5 difference between the PS4 and PS5 versions of Miles Morales. I'm double-checking I can buy the PS4 version, use it with my PS5 and receive a PS5 upgrade - presumably downloaded in a patch.

Dolby vision, hdr10+ etc ...Those are basically the same.
Not the same, HDR10+ is still very good, but Dolby Vision is masters HDR frame by frame (dynamic). Anyway, games will probably continue to be HDR10, and XSX Dolby Vision is great mostly for watching movies and series with Dolby Vision support. So overall, I think it's not something to worry about for game, but we'll wait for further confirmation.

Well, not everyone has a cable modem in range of their setup. In my house the cable modem, etc. is UPSTAIRS and not in the downstairs living room. Works fine, but yeah it IS odd and I would rather be hooked up via ethernet. So bottom line, that change will still likely benefit me and people in similar situations.

Please give this device a chance. There are other models and brands, they work a LOT better than whatever your wifi solution is.
