      PS5 SWITCHES MIC ON BY DEFAULT

      Your PS5 now has an embedded mic in the controller that is active by default.

      Players could find this creepy, but also annoying for others if you don’t know that you’re broadcasting.

      Change the default settings by going to Settings > Sound > Microphone > Microphone Status When Logged In > Mute.

      Unmute manually by hitting a button on your controller when you do want to use a mic going forward.

      The mute light will show up on your controller when on.

      NINTENDO SWITCH OUTSELLS PS5 BY 4-1 IN RUN UP TO CHRISTMAS

      The Nintendo Switch outsold the PS5 by four to run in the run up to Christmas, HEXUS reports.

      Nintendo's current console became highly sought afterduring lockdowns this year, and the console easily outpaced newcomers like the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles in the pre-Xmas sales period.

      According to VGCharts, Nintendo Switch sold over 1.3million consoles between December 6 and 12, while the PS5 sold 365,048.

      This may, of course, be due to a lack of PS5 consoles across the globe after the device sold out in late November.

      GET MORE STORAGE SPACE ON YOUR PS5

      PS5 has a lightning-fast solid state drive (SSD) for storage.

      The segmentation of games also means that game downloads should be smaller – but you may still fill up the available 667 gigs quite quickly if you play a lot of different games.

      Sony has promised to activate the internal slot that allows you to add an approved SSD card in the near future.

      But for now, you can plug an external SSD or HDD that supports USB 3.0 or higher, into a USB port on your PS5 to help improve storage – but you can only play PS4 games stored on that external drive.

      THE KFCONSOLE: WHEN YOU CAN'T FIND A PS5 BUT WANT WARM CHICKEN

      Fast food titan KFC has launched a video game console featuring a special draw to keep your chicken wings warm.

      On December 22 KFC unveiled an official trailer for the machine, featuring what appears to be a prototype model.

      KFC promised that its contraption would bring an end to the “console wars” that have raged for years between Microsoft's Xbox and Sony's PlayStation.

      Official press releases from KFC and Cooler Master – a US PC specialist that designed on the machine – appear to confirm the KFConsole is indeed real.

      Sadly, no price or release date has been given for the KFConsole but it's likely it will get a limited release with only a handful of consoles made available to consumers.

      NOW YOU CAN GET YOUR PS5 DIPPED IN GOLD

      If being one of the lucky gamers who nabbed a PS5 isn't enough for you, you can now get your coveted console dipped in gold.

      Luxury company Caviar has launched their latest Golden Rock project which uses roughly 20kg of gold sheets to add elaborate golden plating to your shiny new PS5.

      At around 39 x 10.4 x 26cm (H x W x D) the PS5 is already a chunky console, but if you have the means and inclination for it to be wrapped in gold then Caviar will give your console the Midas touch.  

      Controllers can also be enveloped in crocodile leather with gold inserts to match the console's ornate design.

      Caviar hasn't released details about how much the Golden Rock PS5 will cost but you can express your interest on its glitzy website.

      Next year promises to be a massive one for Sony, with a slew of big-budget games that could make (or break) its next-generation console.

      Gamers also have Far Cry 6, Gran Turismo 7 and a new Resident Evil to look forward to – though their release dates are a little more tentative.

      Check out the list here, first reported by PushSquare, for the PS5's full line up for 2021!

      PS5 DUALSENSE CONTROLLERS REPORTEDLY BREAKING

      Gamers are reportedly highlighting problems with the PS5 DualSense controllers.

      According to Hot Hardware some adaptive triggers have stopped offering resistence making them feel like the old controllers.

      “A few days ago, I was swinging around in Miles Morales when I felt the R2 snap and immediately become looser,” wrote EeK9X.

      “It was as if whatever was causing the trigger to 'resist' broke, causing it to go back to being a regular, non-adaptive trigger.”

      BLOKE BRANDS NAN AN 'A**HOLE' AFTER SHE PLAYS HILARIOUS PS5 CHRISTMAS PRANK

      A bloke branded his nan an ‘a**hole’ after thinking she bought him a PlayStation 5 – only to unwrap a candle instead.

      The man had hoped to be opening the latest games console, but his gran played a hilarious prank on him instead for Christmas.

      A video has gone viral on TikTok showing a man opening a gift from his relative, which he says he hopes “isn’t coal”. 

      But it was almost as bad, as instead of the gadget his nan had bought him a ‘PS5’ candle, which said: “Smells like you’re not getting one”. 

      He captioned the clip, which has been viewed nearly three million times: “And the tradition of his Nanny being an a**hole continues…”

      PS5 GLITCH

      You may be playing second-rate versions of games on your new PlayStation 5 without even realising it.

      A bizarre bug means Sony's next-gen console doesn't make it clear whether you're playing the PS4 or PS5 variants of some of your favourite titles.

      The high-powered machine, which has already hit shelves in the US and is out in the UK on Thursday, can play games from both consoles.

      However, for games available on both PS4 and PS5, it can be tricky to figure out whether you're playing the old or next gen version.

      To ensure you're playing the right version, hit the three dots icon next to the play button. Change your selection to the PS5 version.

      PS5 fans took to Twitter to express their frustration at the constant PS5 waiting game – with some declaring they would no longer stay awake around the clock for a fabled restock.

      One dejected gamer wrote: “I swear it’s gonna be months before I get a ps5 .

      “I’m done staying up all night for drops that don’t happen and when they do, I can’t even get it in my cart or checkout. Just gonna wait till they hit the shelves.”

      Taking to Facebook she wrote: “So I’ve decided to have a little fun with it taking photos of it doing things and where possible with him in the background. 

      Single mum Helen shared comical pictures of the console being placed in the same room as Nate without his knowledge.

      CROOKS SWITCH PS5 FOR HOME GRILLS IN DELIVERY SCAM

      Crooks are switching PlayStation 5s for home grills in two shock delivery scams.

      The items’ similar weight mean they fool scanners checking boxes at warehouses.

      One con sees criminals, feared to be parcel couriers, substitute a £42 George Foreman Large Fit Grill for the £449 console which is kept and sold at vast profit.

      Hundreds of gamers have reported opening parcels to find a grill.

      It is just 2lbs lighter than the PS5.
