It's an option. You don't have to use it. If it is streamlined, I would much rather prefer it to be part of the UI that trying to find it in a long YouTube video or hidden in some ad-filled online guide.
I feel like crap everytime I cheat. I need more barriers, not less.

It depends on the game, but I've never felt guilty about looking up where to find collectibles. I'm not 14 anymore. I don't have an infinite amount of time to play my favorite games.

I'm not thinking about collectibles. More like Souls games and how to beat a boss or where to go next. Getting 100% with collectibles and what not is going to be less impressive now.

Did you ever beat Sekiro that second time? I think about that game quite a bit.

I think about that game daily. I did beat it a second time. I look forward to improved frame rates (hopefully) on the 5 for a third go around.

Read the new xbox makes no sound.

If it makes no sound, does it exist?

:haha: This is me 100%

Nice to have the option though

Getting pumped!

I watched the UI preview half asleep, but appears there's not going to be any option to have a Theme on the home screen (or something similar to what we're used to now for PS4)? Not a big deal, just wondering if I missed something about that option being offered

Lot of unknowns right now. Part of me hopes they go radio silent for the last 2-3 weeks to leave some mystery/surprises.

I trust it's going to have everything the people want and didn't know they wanted. If not, there will be plenty of updates.

Yeah I'd rather have a few surprises saved for game day, particularly the performance of PS4 games on PS5. Since most of the PS4 to PS5 updates appear to be free, I think I'll hold out on watching any PS5 gameplay of PS4 games until I have the system in my hands/on my bit ass 4K TV.

I suspect the visuals will blow me away, literally off the couch and out the door, into the lake, because I haven't even seen PS4 Pro in person.

It is sort of entertaining to hear all of the gaming hour journalists and influencers complain about not having the console yet.

I do hope there is some kind of customization option for the UI. Not a deal breaker by any means, but it's always kind of irked me that you have to have your games mixed in with all the other apps/links. The PS5 UI, while pretty, appears to be even more unorganized than the PS4's. Again not a huge deal but would be pretty cool to have the option to organize however we choose.

Also this (PS5 accessories could start shipping by 30 Oct): https://www.ign.com/articles/ps5-access ... aunch-date

It does appear that media related apps have an entirely different "tab" on the main screen. That should solve the cluttering issue.

Yeah I take that back, having watched the end of the video more closely. On the new home screen I like the way games and media are portioned out. Wasn't a huge fan of all the 'activity cards' or whatever they're called for the first half of the video, but the home screen does look nice and modernized compared to the dated PS4 look now. The speed/responsiveness of everything look f'ing amazing too. This further motivation for me to finally get a hard wire/ethernet cable connection direct to my PS instead of relying on wifi
