Moment of truth coming up, time to see if the PS5 has VRS, mesh shaders, or quick resume.

If Sony would let me use two externals at once on PS4 I’d transfer all my games from my 2TB to my 4TB to be ready but Sony for some reason doesn’t let you do thst
You can make a clone from one external to another... needs to use a clone software and not just copy/paste from windows.

It could work... so give it a try.

How does a 3.8k subscriber channel get the ps5 before linus and DF? :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Edit* Scrolled through his videos and the most views received is slightly over 1k. Is this what fear looks like?
Linus won’t receive one I believe.

DF will next week with all EU outlets.

DF = Britain
Linus = Canada

I don't think so. DF and Linus garner millions of views give or take per video. The above chanel averages below 100 views per video. I think its apparent that it has to do with the fact that both chanels acctually have an XSX on hand.

DF already said EU will receive the kits next week.

Linus looks blacklisted.

What about IGN?


They have over 14 million subscribers. Linus has 12 million and Digital Foundry only has 1 million for comparison.

Linus looks blacklisted.

I wouldn't be surprised after his SSD incident.

Linus did screw up and apologized for it.


It wasn't just banter mind you. He was actually spreading FUD much like what Dealer and the blue guy did. He had to correct himself.

Wouldn't it be a great PR move to actually have Linus see this revolutionary SSD in action?

any software your recommend? We have macrium reflect at work, but it essentially clones the drive to a volume of equivalent size on another drive. IE: a 2TB to a 4TB would result in a 2TB partition on the new drive

I never did myself but people seems to use MiniTool ShadowMaker... it allow you to clone to different partition sizes.

BTW after cloning you can change the partition size too.

Maybe they also have a very popular website, Twitch channel, extra YouTube channel, podcast or printed magazine, or Instagram account. In any case, all the media and influencers who received it are from NA. DF is European, and nobody from Europe received it. I assume they'll receive it at the same time than the European media and influencers.

You Xbox fans with your concern and fud


Y’all been making yourselves look completely stupid since PS5 was announced. You never learn. Nothing you discord groupies have said about the PS5 has been correct. You spew garbage then a few months later it turns out the PS5 has what you say it doesn’t have, or it doesn’t have a certain issue you say it has. Give it up already.


Can’t wait to see how stock standard the SX SSD is compared to PS5. SX loading hasn’t been anything special.

Loading and asset streaming will be more noticeable than any graphical differences you concerned army are expecting.

Yo you have 10 posts and all of them are insane console warring. You’ve been posted about a 30% power gap which has already been discussed to death in many threads. You make a brand new account just to war and nothing else?

Linus? Are you kidding? I love watching a lot of his videos and technews, but the guy is a total PC Master Race guy, he'd trash the system just because it isn't a PC. There's also the incident where he was (unintentionally) spreading FUD and calling Tim Sweeney a shill and the PS5's SSD solution something akin to total marketing BS, so, I guess he can't expect preferential treatment.

“I suddenly realised that my biased, fanboy bullshit could hurt my bottom line, so here’s an apology video I probably don’t actually mean most of, but had better say anyway, otherwise people might unsubscribe and I’ll lose money.”

This ain’t no different from Logan Paul ‘apologising’ for whatever dumb, self serving shit he did too.

Actions have consequences, and I hope Sony doesn’t accommodate him as a valuable lesson to those fucking idiots with large audiences who spout bullshit without thinking about it.

Yeah he went a bit far with that video. But the damage was already done. The last thing Sony needs is someone like him spreading FUD around.

Have we seen an unboxing yet? I know the reviewers were sent one through proper channels and have to wait. What about someone who snuck a console? I’m kind of surprised
