Why are these guys talking about software issues when the main issue is no one can purchase it?

Dumb talk saying supply doesnt meet demand....
supply would meet demand if greedy selfish a**holes werent using bots to buy everything up and sell for greedy profits before anyone can get either console just like with new pc tech its ridiculous, greedy and selfish.. that kind of greed and selfishness ammasses most of whats wrong with the human race

I get the same audio issue with the series X, I constantly have to go into the settings after I use a headset. Once I want to switch from headset to my sound bar, I have to go into settings and manually do it. Not a big deal but it’s annoying.

If mine bricks I'm suing for sure, I've read the terms and agreements and it isnt fair that people who've spent 500+ dollars are dealing with a broken console when they're suppose to be working. So far I havent had any issues but no one deserves to deal with this because it's a waste of money and it feels like everyone is being robbed. I understand uts a first launch and normally that have a few bugs but a bricked console? They're basically running our pockets because they know the hype is huge so they're taking advantage if that and still taking our money.

It boggles my mind why folks are willing to drop 4-500 bucks on a console at launch. Have we learned nothing from just about every other console launch? I get being excited about a new console, I do. But if I'm expected to front that much coin on something that will literally become a central unit to my entertainment, I'm gonna make damn sure that most of the bugs are dealt with. I'll see you guys in May. Lol

I think a lot of the PS5 launch hardware issues, like video corruption etc, must be down to the extremely poor cooling on the memory.
Some of those memory modules have only partial contact into a flimsy steel plate, with no contact to an actual heatsink. GN clocked some of the memory modules approaching a scorching 94'C 🔥 🔥

I think that Microsoft should let Bethesda do their thing. It will make the most money being available to ALL platforms. That's what I would do. Cause I think Microsoft would be limiting their selves by making the big games xbox/pc exclusives. The ps market is Purdy big.

I found a way to fix it I haven’t tried yet but I’m on my way home in a few, u must get a flash drive that can fit up to 800 MPs I believe or whatever it’s called then hold down the button for your ps5 and reinstall your system which would take everything away basically like starting all over again then you put your information in or just put the flash drive in saving everything

That issue with the sound happened to me !!! I had to change the sound input on options. From HDMI Linear PCM to anything Bitstream, Dolby or DTS. And that did it to me. It also happen when I put a 4K Ultra HD bluray, but there it has its own options for sound, that I also had to change from linear pcm to bitstream.

Guys what about problem with Arctis 9x on Xbox series X? 
1._ When a game is playing, the sound, after 10 or 15 seconds without using the controller, starts to have very fast and annoying micro-cuts, as if they were interference that make it impossible to hear anything, when you press a button or move a joystick you hear again well, but if you stop using the remote after 10 or 15 seconds they return the microcuts.

Solution for ps5 and xbsx preorders and preventing scalper bots
Retailers commence a "ticket system" like when your at the butcher or deli. You would need to go into a retailer with proof of identity (drivers license, passport etc). The retailer then issues you a numbered card (perhaps with qr codes) once the retailer gets in more stock they announce that the next block of numbers are available for preorders. If your card falls with in the announced number bracket you go into the retailer that you recieved the card from and place your preorder. This system could also extend to online preorders. The presentation of ID would hopefully prevent scalpers from getting too many preorder cards, as well if everyone who gets a preorder card is guaranteed a console it might make the scalpers irrelevant.
In short with this solution everyone who goes into a retailer is guaranteed a console it would just be a matter of when, and when retailers get them in stock. It would also give Sony and Microsoft an idea of how many consoles need to be manufactured and how quickly.

Here's a legit point. PS5 can't run 4k120hz with full 4:4:4 chroma only 4:2:2. (Xbox can run full 4:4:4). This means sony lacks colour depth and has more compression. Go see HDTVTEST most recent videos about it.

Can we talk about how 120hz is only workin on some gaming monitors and not others. This has nothing to do with hdmi 2.1 vs 2.0 for people that thinks thats why it isnt working. Sony isnt addressing it and its a huge problem

Microsoft and Sony don't have "supply issues". The issue is their supply is being hoarded by bots who are then reselling them on Ebay for 3 times their value. But IGN, Microsoft, nor Sony would never outright say that or even address it.
