    I must admit I did not break my back to get one but fell lucky enough to get one the other day from Argos. I disagree that you are not missing anything.

    As an early adopter of the PS4 (I got it about one month after launch) I was way more underwhelmed than I am with the PS5.

    I had to regularly dust off my PS3 due to lack of titles.

    To me the PS5 is both a huge step up graphically and interactively, trying out Astro's Lounge the reflective lighting across the landscape is incredible and this time round the dualsense controller is revolutionary.

    The seamless transition between PS4 and PS5 as well means that not only can I get some value selling my PS4 towards my expensive purchase, I can continue playing PS4 titles with improved frame rates/graphics. Perhaps if I was an existing PS4 Pro owner I may have lesser impressions I am not sure.

    The PS4 came with nothing outside of any bundles. Knack should have been included as standard and never sold at full price, and as a tech demo has nothing on the provided Astro's Lounge which is a delight to play, and a perfect love letter of a game to the history of Playstation...I have had a rollercoaster ride of a weekend platinum trophying it.

    Top that off with the PS Plus provided list of PS4 titles also means you are not watching tumbleweeds whilst waiting for PS5 exclusives. It is a console with value applied, and for that I think Sony this time around have put way more thought into it. Just wished they would have put more thought into the design of it, as with marmite I don't like it.

    I did not find Astro's Playroom that short an experience, certainly not in completing it. It took me about 10 hours...not bad for a freebie. I doubt that the dualsense's features will be dropped somehow, the adaptive triggers and haptic feedback I definitely can see being used in many titles. Those PS4 games for free may not be an incentive for yourself, I am looking at it from the perspective differently as said with value applied, a couple of the titles I own physically and can bundle with my PS4 sale.

    More on the PS Plus side, tomorrow's 'Hell Let Loose' is the biggest title since 'Oddworld Soulstorm' and is meant to offer decent haptic feedback.

    I don't think any console particularly is great on the gaming front for the first 1-2 years, the only reason I went for the PS5 now was due to the fact that it was available and whilst I still have decent resale value in the PS4 with forward compatibility and added value in enhancements. But I still disagree with your comment that the only difference between the PS4 and PS5 is loading times.

    You cannot appease everyone...what about those that don't have a PS5? If I didn't now own a PS5 I would have been quite happy in having it on my PS4.

    For me, it was worth picking up due to what I have already said in the value applied, it is a way cheaper upgrade than it was from moving from the PS3 to PS4. So my opinion differs. Guess I am more a glass half full type of guy.

    I would suggest you flog your PS5 currently at a profit, go back to the PS4 and wait if you are not happy.

    So game don't look better? So you aren't getting way more fps? If you only think loading times are the difference you're mad (edited)

    Does the code work for the Xbox X as well? I'm on the site but I'm without a code. If anyone has an Xbox X code I'm your man, gotta play that halo.

    On a different note has anyone that did get one had problems with the L1 &2 or R1&2 buttons? We've had to send our controller away as the spring snapped apparently it is a common problem

    I agree that it's not worth any struggles to get one at RRP or for that matter paying over the odds for one right now, but I for one definitely do not go for 'novelty' I was underwhelmed at the outset by the PS4.

    Had to send two back to Sony for my daughters PS5 , one was the R2 button/spring the other was for stick drift on the L3. 1st issue was after a month second one was around the 5 month mark. Sony replaced them both without any hassle but it did take about 4 weeks for the new ones to arrive. I have had no issues with my PS5 controllers but I don’t play as much.

    Having already owned the PS4 near launch I am used to the fact owning a new console comes with little in the way of new releases....this is another reason as I have said why I am liking the PS5 more, I can sell the PS4 knowing seamlessly I can still play PS4 titles, many of which with better framerates. It's a win-win for me....I don't need to wait two years, sell my PS4 whilst it still has some value left in it rather than wait for a price drop of the PS5 in two years time when the PS4 has little resale value.
