my tv was off when i booted it so i totally missed this

Just factory reset your ps5.

ID: ho8wozc

Why do that when you can just buy a new one?

ID: ho9lg3b

i legit considered it then my cousin was like are ya serious and i just awkwardly laughed

ID: ho8abdk

My HDMI wasn't connected so I thought I missed it, turns out, it must have detected no HDMI so when I connected and turned it on again I got the startup.

I very nearly ruined launch day for myself.

ID: ho9ldp4

Happened to me. I had my HDMI compatibility issues so by the time I corrected that it was already into the controller connect screen.

ID: ho8tsts

Same. First time seeing that.

I’d love that, honestly.

A year later, I still love the novelty of Astro’s Playroom, or even seeing games in the home menu with their own mini-theme and background music.

Unlike any other console I’ve had, the PS5 has somehow maintained its intrigue for so long. Within days of using just about any console I can think of, within a day I felt as if I had been using it for months, yet after almost a full year of using the PS5, it is so novel. Between seeing the giant tower next to my TV or feeling the weight of the DualSense, it’s somehow still new.

Astro's Playroom was a wonderful surprise, I just never expected to fall in love with a game like that. I assume many people feel the same.

ID: ho8epsf

It’s ruined other ps5 games for me, I’ve not played anything that gave me any similar amount of joy.

ID: ho9dsfp

Astro took me back to being a kid again honestly, it was a joy to do from start to finish.

ID: ho8ov76

Same. It was my first ever Platinum! 😀

ID: ho8rgvq

It's still the most played game by my kids. My youngest has played through the water themed levels dozens of time now.

ID: ho8de9f

100%! I have played it so many times. It was one of those games I thought “alright I’ll just give it a go while I wait for my other game to install” meanwhile I play it for the rest of the day haha

ID: ho8j6ij

Why isn’t there a full length Astro game?

It could honestly compete with Mario if they didn’t limit Astro to short games and VR.

ID: ho8ljlv

They're probably going for it after the success of VR and Playroom. They said Asobi was expanding.

ID: ho8tx7a

A coworker recommended me play through Astros playground or I may not have done it. It is actually a really fun platform and better that a lot of games that cost money

There should be an option to turn the beep off.

ID: ho886c3

Yes! The only time I get to play these days is after 11pm after everyone's gone to bed. We don't all live in mansions, the PlayStation is close to the sleepers, it's so loud at night.

ID: ho8u4m3

Same, or super early in the morning. A 5am loud beep doesn't help lol.

ID: ho84nam

I get that options are great BUT the beep (and the light) is used for troubleshooting errors and entering safe mode.

ID: ho8hah5

Then only beep when there's issues. Desktop PCs figured this out years ago, not sure why it's unreasonable for a console.

ID: ho8gs7x

Ok so then why can’t it only beep when there are errors? And not every time I power off and on.

ID: ho8v9j1

But there should a way to make it less loud or just entirely disable when it is only turning it on

The LED lights tell you enough, they are just harder for troubleshooting, but that’s why it would be an option

ID: ho8950l

Sure I know, yet there are bilion of devices that do not need to beep in order to notify you of troubles or go to safe modes. Blinking leads would be enough. Or maybe at least let's meet midway and allow volume setting for that beep.

ID: ho828a0

It wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t sound like a floor fan power beep or something.

Xbox has a little nice three note jingle at least that is more pleasant and tone-setting.

ID: ho83bsb

Funny you mention that- the PlayStation beep sounds exactly like the beep my tower fan makes when it turns on. Sometimes I’ll hear my girlfriend turn the fan on when I’m in another room and wonder why my PlayStation was powering on

ID: ho8o9ih

And the Xbox has options to entirely turn off the beep or only beep in certain circumstances. Start with controller - no beep, or start with console power button - no beep.

ID: ho8b07q

I have at least 3 devices in my house that make the exact same beep. Two of them are Xiaomi products, one is the PS5

ID: ho8mx13

and you can turn off the Xbox power chime. You can also dim the LED or turn it off if you want to.

ID: ho8bjw2

fuck that beep, all my homeys hate the beep

ID: ho8bkof


this has been an accessibility service from your friendly neighborhood bot

ID: ho93s22

If you use the remote play option on another device first (eg Phone, Desktop) it will boot without the beep.

I’m the same that after 11 I’ll do remote play from my laptop and while the fan still is loud it doesn’t have the beep. Right after the system starts up you can disconnect remote play and then play as normal with the controller.

That shit was orgasmic when I first saw it, but it definitely would’ve lost its magic on the third time seeing it

ID: ho8uy3k

Just ask the guy with 5 PS5s if it loses its magic on the third one

6 : Anonymous2021/12/12 10:05 ID: ho8c847

Yeah I was somewhat disappointed I had my screen off when I first booted it up just to find out I missed out.

7 : Anonymous2021/12/12 11:48 ID: ho8jibm

They should just bring back themes

ID: ho9r2rl

Agreed! This is my biggest complaint with the PS5. I loved themes and I miss them.

ID: ho9srgw

But won’t anyone think of the lost ad revenue?

I like the bigger game screens vs the PS4 icons but I do miss the themes and not landing on an ad page every time I start it up.

ID: ho9sxmt

I just want my firewatch theme back

8 : Anonymous2021/12/12 11:57 ID: ho8k5ii

I'd much prefer the ability to organize my library into folders like you can on a PS4, but do you

9 : Anonymous2021/12/12 08:40 ID: ho86647

They need to let us change the startup color first. Honestly all I want is the PS1 startup as an option for every PlayStation, that original startup is unbeatable.

I missed this animation. My tv turned on after animation is complete..

11 : Anonymous2021/12/12 13:18 ID: ho8r8ds

Thank you for sharing this. When my husband gave me my PS5 on Valentine's Day and turned it on while I was upstairs, I didn't know I missed this. I had thought about yelling at him for turning it on first since he doesn't even care about playing it but I love him, it's whatever. He put in a lot of work to get it for me so I let him have that.

12 : Anonymous2021/12/12 09:40 ID: ho8agu1

It is cool but honestly I don't need the extra start up time

ID: ho8j3cs

Mayba that's why the title says we should have the OPTION to do it, so those who don't care about 10 seconds less can toggle it on.

13 : Anonymous2021/12/12 07:35 ID: ho81bzf

I personally don't want it. But options for those that do wouldn't hurt and I doubt it'd be all to hard to implement

14 : Anonymous2021/12/12 12:57 ID: ho8p2zw

Or an an option to pick any Playstation start sequence

15 : Anonymous2021/12/12 13:08 ID: ho8q3t6

Same! Just sped up and without the controller prompt and should look great

16 : Anonymous2021/12/12 17:41 ID: ho9rjr1

I legit got all tingly and got goose bumps when this hit my screen. Def thought it would happen every time.
