Forums - Sony Discussion - Finally Got a PS5!

Congrats man. I understand your frustration with PS+ it's very confusing on PS with the way it's setup in the UI. I don't think it's much worse than GP honestly as I've had both and it's hard for me to find games on either that I want to play. I either already played it, don't want to play it, kind of wanted to play it but didn't like it, and then the rare game that I wanted to play and I end up beating. Going to finish the Judgement series and play Disco and probably let my sub run out in March.

Honestly I waste more time just browsing the service looking for something I can play to justify the cost. Thinking it's better to just let it cancel and spend that time browsing the PS store and buying a game. I also notice I put in more effort into a game I purchased vs a game I just downloaded off PS+.



Around the Network

Congrats :D
I also got a PS5 the same time as you. I got it in the Black Friday sales. They started a week early than the actual Black Friday. I got it £100 cheaper (or roughly £150 cheaper if you count the 'free' game I got with it). It was £390 with FF16.
I got a bunch of other games quite cheap, so I think I saved roughly £200 all together... Although I spent about £1,070 overall lol. I also got the PSVR 2 for it too :D I love it a lot. 
I got Resident Evil 8: Village, Resident Evil 4 remake, Final Fantasy 16, Horizon: Call of the Mountain, Kayak VR Mirage & Song in the Smoke.
I've only played Kayak VR Mirage & Resident Evil 8: Village so far. I really love Resi 8, the VR mode is amazing. It's got me hooked just like Resi 7 for PSVR1 did last gen. The graphics is a huge improvement from the first PSVR headset. The sense controllers are a massive improvement from the move controllers too.

Make sure to play Astro's Playroom, legit one of my favorite experiences on the system

It honestly surprised me that neither the 2 Playroom titles (original and VR) and tthe first Astro Bot don't have PS5 ports yet. The opportunity to push the Astro brand just a little bit more is right there.
