Notes:

  • PlayStation 4 controllers do not work with the PlayStation 5.
  • The PS5 can play Blu-ray movies (HD, 3D, and 4K UHD), but is region locked.

Common problems/faults with the console:

  • Controllers Drift: Sometimes out of the box, because the gamepads use ageing off-the-shelf joystick modules with a short life expectancy (2 to 7 months). It was a cost saving move by Sony that makes the joysticks extremely difficult to repair without soldering gear. There are four main causes of stick drift: sensor wear, spring fatigue, material stretching, and dust/moisture build up.
  • C-Bomb: When the cmos battery dies (average lifespan 10 years, ERROR CE 34878-0 or 30392-7) or is replaced, the system will need to check in with the PSN to confirm the correct time. The PS5 runs the check for digital games only.
    • When the PSN servers go down in the future it will render digital games unplayable.
    • Sony could prevent this by changing how PS5 handles validating trophies in a firmware update, and failing that, a jailbroken console may avoid the problem.
