Its a fancy accessory (that is priced reasonably fair) if you don't want to use the TV as the screen. You still need to be near at the PS5 though, and the battery life...
I definitely will get one because a device like this is perfect for me, but just cannot justify the cost. I'll either wait a few months to buy one used on eBay, or if I am lucky then the official retailers will sell them open-box at a discounted rate too.Anyone getting/got it yet? Just want to see what people think.
It's definitely a very niche accessory, that's for sure. And on top of that, the lack of cloud streaming, bluetooth, and other features make it very overpriced in my opinion. Hell, it's half the price of the original entry level Ps5.It's another hard pass for me. Seems pointless.
Yeah those for sure had something to do with it. But I also think there was a small production volume of it too.Sold out in 2 days because of scalpers
No you don't. Remote play works anywhere as long as the location you're in has wifi, and your Ps5 is on rest mode.You still need to be near at the PS5 though,
What is the general battery life btw? I missed that part in the reviews.and the battery life...
yes, but you can take it to places that have wifi. maybe you can't use when you're in transit but once you've reached your destination, you can remote play as long as the internet is stable. do you know what the general battery life is btw?You can't take this outside of your house and inside your car, unless you have an electric socket/electricity with you. And who really is going to a plug a PS5 inside a car.
Not too bad, though. It's about the same as a Dualsense.
If you're asking if the Dualshock 4 and Dualsense have the same battery life length, I think they are comparable on that aspect. I'm not saying the Portal has good battery life. I'm saying it's bad, but not that bad. I'm fine with 6-8 hours personally, that's more than enough time for me.Isn't that just the same as the PS4 controller? The battery life for DualSense isn't an improvement. Charging the controller actually annoys me, thats why I brought up battery life.
If they're the same Dualshock 4s that you've had since launch then maybe the battery has just degraded overtime. The Ps4 is 10 years old, after all.I don't play that much, but the annoying part is, it seems like I always have to charge the controller. I use my ps4 for streaming music/shows and films. And i always a get reminder that I need to charge the controller.
yeah, 6 years is still a long time and if the standard battery life for a Dualshock 4 is up to 8 hours then it makes sense that after more than half a decade that they won't last as long.I just got mine in 2017, I have a spare controller but I haven't really used it. Maybe the battery did indeed degrade since its been more than siX years.
as they say, "you reap what you sow." karma's a bxxxx, Sony. you had it coming.Sony must face a mass lawsuit worth up to 6.3 billion pounds ($7.9 billion) over claims the PlayStation maker abused its dominant position leading to unfair prices for customers, a London tribunal ruled on Tuesday.www.reuters.com
I don't think people mind being in a walled garden when prices are long term competitive. Ask pc gamers how much the Steam monopoly has ruined gaming for them, and why they don't even bother downloading the same games for free from other providers. I ran out of space years ago so I wanted to go digital, but prices of old games on console stay so far above the physical versions that it feels dumb to pay up.Well, that's one problem of a closed ecosystem/walled garden. However, MS and Nintendo do allow third parties to sell digital codes (e.g. Humble Bundle for Switch games).
I will always champion for corporations losing money against "the little guy" but I reckon this lawsuit won't go anywhere.
