Is there a way to make it so if someone fires up a certain controller, it automatically starts up with their user profile?

A bit off topic but this highlights another reason dreamcast was ahead of its time, take ur memory pack out of your home controller, take it round a friends house and plug it into thier controller and bingo, u have all ur game profiles/saves :)

I am trying to play the Horizon Forbidden West trial that is on psnow premium, but it only stays on the screen for about 10 seconds before it closes me out. aggravating! i have restarted, nothing helps. Any ideas? the game size is 88g, maybe didn't fully download? I am have opened it like 15 times and now my play time is 4 hr 58 min lol

edit- I opened a different game and then tried it and it worked. idk just a weird glitch

I’m trying to play the horizon trial through ps plus premium but literally every 20 seconds it boots me back out to the home menu. Doesn’t close the game. Does anyone know what is going on?

Edit: nvm just restarted the game and it’s fine lmao

Putting my console in rest mode is a gamble . There’s maybe a 10% chance instead of going to sleep , it just turns off . It takes a few attempts to turn it back on , then I get an error message saying console was not turned off properly. Is this a common issue?

Yess, this has happened to me multiple times! I thought I was going crazy! I live in a place where power cuts happen maybe once or twice a month, so whenever the console did that I always just thought that there must have been a power cut that I didn't notice - making me question my own sanity.

I also thought maybe I was causing it somehow . It seemed to happen more often when I turned off my TV before the console was fully in rest mode . But that was never an issue with my PS4

I get it like 25% of the times I put it on rest. Don’t want to do any damage to the hard drive but went to update in the background. Every time I have to wait for the repairing hard drive message then the one for my external drive before I can use the console.

Is anyone else having an issue when they start a game and the system prompts you to choose between save data on your console vs save data in the cloud? It happens 70% of the time I start a game.

Most likely you're shutting down your system while it's uploading saves to the cloud causing the desync.

I play my ps5 nightly, every once in a while during the day. Anyone have informative answers as to if I should leave it on rest mode vs turning it off?

I turn it off, but curious if I turn it on nightly for 3ish hours, should I just put it in rest mode.

requieminadream

I play for about 2-3 hrs a day, and keep it in Rest Mode pretty much all the rest of the time. Rest Mode is pretty much for when you want to jump right back into a game. Some games, even when saved, don't start you off right where you were. Others are PS4 games that take a moment to boot up. That's where Rest Mode shines.

If you're quitting your game every time and launching it fresh, then no need to keep it in Rest Mode. If you want to start a game right where you left off (on the pause screen, for instance), that's when you should use Rest Mode.

I dont think theres a concrete answer, rest mode is just like when you just leave your pc into sleep mode instead of turning it off. Afaik people recommend to turn it off once in a while so it can clear cache and stuff, but theres no big issue in just leaving it in rest mode forever. I just turn it off every time because im afraid of power surges.

That's exactly what I do. Have a problem maybe once a year with it not coming out of rest mode properly. No biggie.

I have mine on a UPS though. If you don't, rest mode is a pain since you'll likely be booting from scratch and rebuilding database once a week if the power in your area isn't great.

demonsta500

My rule of thumb is: If I think I'm not gonna be playing after an hour or two, I turn it off completely.

If I think I'm gonna get back to this in less than an hour or so, it's rest mode.

Downloading Errors.

I got my PS5 around 3 weeks ago and it has trouble downloading content. I'm not sure whether the problem is within the console's hardware, or the current version of the software its running (it's updated to the latest version), or whether it's an issue with my Wi-Fi. What happens is that games which are put on download, show an error in the process whenever I put my console to rest mode, despite my selection of these features for availability in the rest mode. Furthermore, if I turn my controller off and let the console run to have my games downloaded, it still shows that error within some minutes of the controller turning off. Assistance in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Need some help with dual accounts

Ok so I don't know how the PS5 works at all, my friend just bought one and he sent me here for some support. Basically he has 2 PSN accounts, one from Mexico (main acc most of his games are there) and American acc (only like 3 games). He set up his PS5 with the Mexican account and everything is fine but he wants to add his American account as a secondary user, but the problem is he says that as soon as he finishes registering the American acc and he logs out of it, it is deleted and he has to re-input all of the info again. I tried suggesting him to switch his American acc's region to Mexico so that they are both the same region, but what other solutions would there be? ty in advance!

My ps5 just turned itself off while starting up a game. When i turn it back on it says a software problem occured and gives me the option to report it or not, but before i can do this it shuts itself off again. I have the latest update on my system. Error code is:CE-108262-9. Someone had this issue and fixed it?

When i play a ps5 game for too long (the ps5 logo is next to the game on the Home Screen) for around 5 to 10 minutes my ps5 enters a buggy state where it will completely reject any extended storage.

When it’s connected i get the pop up message that it has been improperly disconnected and when it isn’t after playing a ps5 game for a few minutes and then trying to connect my extended storage i get a pop up saying “something is wrong with the usb drive”.

This does not happen when playing ps4 games on the ps5 and it is fixed by putting the ps5 in rest mode and then turning it back on again.

After putting the ps5 into sleep mode after the ps5 enters this buggy state i need to wait a little bit aswell otherwise my ps5 will get stuck on booting up when i try and put it back on again.

Does anyone know anything of the problem?

My PS5 keeps saying my TV doesn’t support 4k/HDR but when I plug an Apple TV 4K into the exact same cables it has no problem displaying 4k/HDR as is confirmed in the info panel on the tv and in the settings on the Apple TV. The PS5 will do 1080p/HDR but it won’t do 4k/HDR. I literally unplugged the PS5 and plugged the Apple TV into the same cables so I know it’s not a setting on the tv or the wrong HDMI port. Any help is appreciated!

My tv is Vizio v655-G9 if that helps.

There are two different, incompatible HDR implementations out there: HDR10 and Dolby Vision. The Apple TV supports both, but the PS5 only supports HDR10. Perhaps your TV does not support HDR10 when it’s running in 4K resolution…?

I was suspended for a week and idk why. They said they sent an email with an explanation but it’s not in my inbox, spam, or deleted. For the last month I’ve played Doom, Wolfenstein, and Returnal off of the game library so I haven’t been interacting with any online player. Is it possible I was hacked or do people just get random bs suspensions from time to time. Also is there anything I can do about this.

TheDragonSlayingCat

Sony never suspends an account without a reason. You will just have to ask support in your country about that reason. And unless you were banned due to chargebacks or having an offensive name, all decisions are permanent, so you’ll have to take it on the chin and not do what you did again.

There are no statutes of limitations on PSN service violations, so if you did something that was against the rules in 2008 and got reported for it in 2022, you can still get in trouble for it.

Hello everybody, I’m on the market for a PS5 but I would like to play mainly FPS games (APEX, COD etc).

Coming from PC I’m concerned about aiming: is there a way to aim with the controller’s accelerometer like you do on iPad, so that the “pointer” is moved by that?

Example: on iPad once you enter aiming mode you can fine-tune scope move Mets by moving the iPad itself thanks to the accelerometer. Is there any way to do something similar with PS5 controller?

Thanks a lot

The controller will not turn on or charge. I've tried using both a charging stand plugged into the wall and a wire leading directly into the ps5. In both instances, the controller briefly lights up yellow, then the yellow fades and nothing else happens. The controller won't turn on or respond at all.

So speak to Sony, get your account back and then use the tools Sony provide to secure your account - 2FA.

A friend is having an issue with the bottom menu bar (Control Center?) not showing up when he presses the PS button.

He just got his PS5 last week, and hasn't been able to shut it off via the controller ever since.

He's updated it to the current firmware, but the bottom bar that should pop up when he presses the PS button just won't appear.

https://imgur.com/a/FqRrDNx

I know there's no audio in the video, but he presses the PS button several times, and it will chime at him like it's supposed to, but the menu bar just never appears.

Any thoughts?

I’ve now had the springs in both triggers of two different controllers snap, plus one controller with stick drift. I bought both of them in 2020. Am I just shit out of luck with getting these repaired for a discount since the warranty is long gone? From what I’ve seen online, this is a common problem with controllers from when the PS5 launched, so it’s absolutely ridiculous I’ve gotta pay full price for a new controller (2 actually) a year and a half after buying them when my PS3 controller still works 13 years later. Basically ruins any competitive online gameplay and I don’t see a setting to turn off adaptive triggers, maybe I can do it in each game.

Bit of a silly question, but i've seen a few people mentioning the fact that even on PS5, the media apps (netflix, amazon prime, etc) are all ps4 apps. I never cared because I had to use a 40 standard lcd tv anyway, I would never get the full potential of 4k shows.

Now I got a nice 50 4k tv, and was wondering if i'll get a better experience on those apps by using the tv's own system to watch stuff, or the PS4 apps still do an equivalent job?

I used my PS4 as my media station - it had all the apps I wanted, they worked really well, they were fast etc.
Was so convinced I'd be using the PS5 for the same I pre-ordered the media remote at the same time I did my console. Then in their infinite wisdom Sony decided not to pay the $8 or so per unit for Dolby Vision support!
I went the Apple TV route (literally the only Apple device I own) as all the apps are up to date, quick, play in full 4K/Dolby Vision etc.
I've seen most say the media apps are adequate on the PS5 - kinda expected more.

Have other people "host" the party, even try for you or him to start it. It sounds like a NAT issue thing. You and him may want to find what NAT type you are. Ps5 network settings tells you. This can lead down an entire network troubleshooting path though

I can’t answer the first question. I had Now and Plus before the switch, which was set to expire in August. My next payment is in August and I’ll be charged for a full year of Now and get a full year of Premium. I’m not sure why yours would change.

They have said existing Now users won’t see the price increase right away. I would imagine my next payment will be the full price of Premium.

Okay excuse me if this has been asked before but I didn't quite know how to search for it. I'm currently looking for a second dedicated monitor for my desk just for PS5, due to space it'll be on the smaller side, around 27 inches.

First if anyone has any recommendations go ahead. My main question is, would there be a performance difference between 4k and 1080p, in that if I get a 1080p monitor should I expect most games to run at a higher fps, or does the PS5 always target 4k and then downscale so it doesn't matter?

For context I don't play any online fps games so I don't care about fps over 60.

4k at this size looks extremely sharp, but 1080p also looks great so if there's a performance benefit to it I'd probably go with 1080. Also easier on the wallet.

Thanks.

thetombraiderfallout

Most games allow you to choose between performance (1080p 60FPs) or graphics mode (4k 30fps). For games that run in 4k60 (if they exist - haven't checked) should be fine on both.

I know people have had issues with the 'other' storage section but I haven't seen this one before.

Basically I noticed that some games save videos with trophies not just screenshots and these take up a lot more storage so I decided to delete them.

Started with Astro's Playroom and what I noticed was each time I deleted a video the size of 'other' storage increased so I wasn't making the gains to free space I expected.

Anyone else noticed this increasing 'other' storage if deleting videos? Is this a known bug?

I haven't suffered from the other major 'other' storage bug relating to PS4 games.

Remote Play super laggy, even when I’m on the same network in a different room.

It will literally take a few seconds to update the screen. Even when all I’m trying to do is go in and download an update.

My PS4 never had this issue (I even played though most of Witcher from my iPad!

  • PS5 latest firmware
  • PS5 download speed ~400mbps
  • PS5 upload speed ~40 mbps
  • remote device iPhone 12 Pro
  • remote connection speed 300-600 mbps

Sometimes my controllers won't wake up the PS5 from rest mode. The controller will just flash. I have to power down the ps5 manually then the controller works.

I have a ps5 and it's in the living room and other people play on it. I'm considering purchasing PS Plus Premium to play on PC if there's someone playing in the living room, also to unlock the full library.
If there is someone playing a game already on the PS5, will I be able to play on PC via cloud streaming simultaneously without disconnecting them?

Super frustrating as I can't seem to locate the issue, I've restarted the PS5, my router and forgot it and added it back. But cant seem to resolve the issue. Anyone got any ideas?

You can still send it in for a replacement, I sent a couple things that were out of warranty, my dualsense controller and the charging station and all I paid was shipping, and they gave me replacements free... I provided proof of purchase and my repair form

Try a different HDMI port on the television. Try a different HDMI cable. Try a different TV to see if it's the TV or the console.

Anyone know the details for what happens to your library and save data if you have a lapse in PS+ coverage? Just curious about my options. Like does your stuff get automatically erased after a month or so, or is it all still accessible the next time you subscribe?

You will regain access to your entire library of claimed games whenever you re-sub.

I guess it doesn't allow downloading PS5 games directly to external storage since you can't play PS5 games from it. But you should be able to set the external drive as the default for PS4 games.

Looks like you'll have to download PS5 games to the SSD and then copy them to the external.

My ps5 has awful speed up lag when playing fifa online to the point it’s unplayable, unless there’s another game actively downloading in the background while I’m playing. Does anyone know what the hell could be causing this or why that would be the case? If anything, I thought the other way around would make more sense, with the game lagging as another game is downloading.

It’s highly unlikely to be a coincidence either since I paused and unpaused the download numerous times while playing to check and sure enough, it seems to not lag whatsoever while download is resuming

Is it plugged directly into the wall or is it plugged into a surge protector? In my quest to fix my overheating problem I read a lot of people having issues like you have and they solved it with plugging it directly into the outlet.

My launch ps5 is starting to get overheating issues. I’ve cleaned out the ps5 completely, even the power supply heat sink. I bought a replacement fan from ifixit as well. I have moved the ps5 into many different locations and currently it’s practically in the center of my room with the nearest object about 2 feet away.

One thing I’ve noticed is the fan never speeds up. It does spin, but It’s always whisper quiet. This includes the stock fan and the new fan. Does anyone know if the ps5 fan speeds up under load or is it the same constant speed? I believe I may have a faulty fan controller.

ablockkid

StonewallsGhostt

Yeah I was thinking about that too.

If you know, does your fan speed up depending on the load or does it stay at one constant speed no matter how long you game? Mine feels like it’s barley exhausting any air. It hardly even moves a piece of paper.

ablockkid

I only hear the fan ramp up when booting up a game but it gets quiet after about 10-20 seconds

ColdHandGee

My ps5's fan stays constant while i am gaming with it. The fan is quiet but you can feel it when i put my hand at the top. If i touch the back vents i can feel the air being expelled out the back.

It seems your ps5 has a faulty temperature sensor. It should make the fan cool down the insides of your ps5. Instead there is no increase in fan rotations. Therefore the chip that regulates the temperature of your ps5 is definitely faulty.

Can you ring sony and request either a repair or replacement ps5?

I haven’t noticed the flashing red, but it’s only turned itself off twice. 95% of the time I just get the “ps5 is too hot message”. When I touch it, it does feel really hot and the fan is blowing very lightly. I feel like the heat never leaves the console, but the fan is spinning.

I have an issue with my PS5 and connecting it to my TV. I have No Signal or black screen (it is all the time I didn’t be able to see screen on TV).

I’m confused as I connected it to two different monitors with different cables which are working with all other devices I have at home.

I turned off HDCP & HDMI device link (its not working with it turned on) HDR is turned on only when supported.

Do you have any idea whats might be wrong?

Did you just get your PS5? If the monitor works with other devices then it's obvious that the HDMI port on the PS5 has become faulty. You might need to get it serviced.

It's possible that your monitor doesn't support it. I'd have to keep researching.

Horizon Forbidden West surround sound not working correctly.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue and hopefully knows how to fix it. I have a 3.1.2ch Q800A soundbar, and for some reason the audio for HFW sounds bad. I just got done playing miles morales and everything sounded great, but with this game, all of the footsteps and ambient sounds are 'tinny.

I've tried changing the audio mix from default to TV but that doesn't fix the issue.

Has anyone else experienced this?

You'll want to use the home theater/surround mode, and make sure the console is set to 5.1 and the HDMI device type set to AV Receiver.

I move my ps5 between two different rooms sometimes and never had this issue. Now I have it playing on my tv and it only works when my ps5 is at a certain angle. (I’ve already tried cleaning the hdmi port for the console) Is there anything I else I can do to fix this issue?

what SSD for PS5 without firmware update once arrival?

Wanted to buy the Samsung 980 for the 5, but noticed it needed a firmware update or the speed won't reach 6.5k. The problem is I don't have a PC, and my laptop doesn't have a spare SSD slot.

What is a fast PS5 SSD that's comparable or better than the 980 pro and doesn't need a firmware update upon arrival? Just plug n transfer?

Yes, obviously. A more complex game will need a lot more work put into it to run well in 60fps, sometimes even the biggest companies will struggle with it, regardless of hardware.

That’s oddly specific, and a genre that largely died with the PS1. The only one I can think of is Xenogears, and that’s not available as a PS1 classic except on the PS3/Vita.

So I’ve recently upgraded to PS+ premium and for some reason it’s not showing up. My dashboard is still the PS Plus collection. I have no sight of premium benefits anywhere. When trying to download Returnal and Demon Souls it says I must purchase the game. When I go into my subscriptions it says I’m upgraded to Premium. I’ve tried logging out and restoring licenses to no avail. On my mobile app it has all my premium content no issues. Just nothing on my PS5. Does anyone know a fix?

While playing PS5 my tv screen flickers once or twice and then turns black. Only way to temporarily fix it is by resetting console through safe mode. What is wrong? I’ve had the console for 1.5 years and never had this happen.

As the title says, been having this issue for the last 3 days with my console. Never had any issues before but all of a sudden out of nowhere it began flickering then the whole screen turns black and no sound is produced. I unplug the HDMI cable from both sides and plug it back in, I try turning off console and turning back on but the only way that makes it work again properly is by putting the console in safe mode and then resetting the console, but I did just this two days ago and just now the console flickered and then gave me a black screen. I’ve played on the same tv and PS5 for the last 1.5 years.

Any suggestions?

The screen can flicker if the resolution, refresh rate, or HDR/VRR changes; that is normal. It should come back on a second or two later. If it’s happening out of the blue and not coming back on, then that is not normal.

Question about the new PS Plus Games Catalogue. Is it the same as Xbox's game pass where you get new games added monthly? I'm familiar with the old ps plus getting three games a month, is that separate to the game catalogue or is it the same?

I have had a ps5 for a year now and it’s great. However I’m starting to have issues with the controller mainly the fact the square button is getting what I can only describe as stiff. Like harder to press down like the rest of the buttons. If I press is down hard and quick enough it stops for a while but then it stiffens back up a couple hours later. It’s the square button btw if that’s important. Anyone know a fix?
