    From that blurb, the NVME manufacturers say compatibility testing program hasn't started. I'm still not sure if Sony is going to have one [an official whitelist of drives].

    Glad to see I can just move/copy most of my PS4 games to my 4Tb SSD and just plug it into the PS5. Simples. :yep2:

    So the 0.5w standby mod is more or less complete powered down mode.

    Edit: with memory powered up I guess.

    In at least the US, aftermarket parts is an absolutely acceptable market, especially in the automotive market. It's even acceptable and backed by law that aftermarket manufacturers can use OEM trademarks for the expressed purpose of distinguishing compatibility.

    Anyone remember Destruction Derby? That was suppose to be a demonstration of the power of the PS1 at the time.

    That and Wipeout were both quite spectacular I thought.

    Both of these games came out on Saturn also, even though Psygnosis was owned by Sony at the time. Wipeout had a 64 port as well, but I think Destruction Derby 64 was really DD2. The Saturn port of Wipeout is passable, but not as good as PS1. DD is pretty bad, though, and I don't know if it got any releases in the west.

    Memory and SSD. It says it downloads updates but doesn't install them. It'll be interesting to see what the Custom power profile permits.

    I only ever want to download updates and not auto-install then because this loses the suspend state of any game you were playing when you put the console into rest mode.

    It actually says:"They'll download and install when console is on."

    Does anyone in the UK want my Pulse 3D headphones pre-order at cost before I cancel it? I ended up getting the Arctis 7x and forgot I had these on pre-order - got a reminder email from Amazon so offering here as I know there's no stock.

    Are you sure the 7x works on the PS5? I thought the 7p was the headset for the Sony console..

    Yes (and thanks for asking!), the weird thing is that the 7P doesn't work on Xbox but the 7X works on everything including PS5! They are the exact same bar the design and the dongle which the 7X has a little switch for when using with Xbox.
