Free Games this week on EGS: Dungeons 3

Our YouTube Channel: https://youtube.com/c/BadFodderFigures

Intro: 

NEWS:
Why so many missteps by Sony so close to launch?

 - 825GB console, only 667 GBs available
 - No SSD expansion at launch
 - Can’t use an external to cold store PS5 games
 - Can’t save PS5 games to USB drive, can only upload to cloud, which requires PS Plus
 - No folders, like on PS4
 - Missing VRR, where is 8k support, says it on the box?

Good News from PS5 review :

 - DualSense is a home run
 - HDMI cable is HDMI 2.1
 - UI looks incredible, super smooth and in HDR
 - Tons of audio options - adjust config of speakers
 - Press PlayStation button at home screen, customizable menu pops up
 - Download times greatly reduced (mileage will vary on internet)
 - Backwards compatibility works great - just like Series X, BC games running on systems full power, “games feel like a remaster”
 - Presets for difficulty, performance, subtitles, etc
 - Total PlayTime listed under Profile
 - All past tweets, listed under Shared in Profile
 - Added “busy” as a online status
 - Game Library organized better
