The bounce back recoil on the rifle was awesome.

I wonder what the battery life is on the PS5 controller? It's never been that great on the PS4. At least not on mine. Maybe 3-4 hours it seems. I pretty much have to charge it every time I play. Probably doesn't help that you can't turn off the giant fucking spot light on the top of the controller.

as you know, I've had really "mixed" results with PS 4 controllers. I've since discovered that trying to charge them directly with a simple Micro USB cord, from a USB port or wall wart seems to cause these issues. I got an actual Charging Stand (which really shouldn't be any different ? ) has seemed to make ALL the difference. Un-scientific and apocryphal, but that has been my experience.

which time zone ? that might be the most important question.

ETA: never mind, I actually followed the link. 3:00 PM EST.
that gives roughly 20 hours to figure out how to d/l bot software and figure out how to use it to secure multiple ps5 :)

good luck

Wait, so you got better battery life with a charging stand? I've only ever charged it with the cable plugged into the console

I only ever used the charging stand that powers two controllers. I use one for a few days until it dies then i put it on the stand and use the other one and just rotate the two controllers

I don't think I've ever gotten more than one session on a charge. I'm no marathon gamer either. 2-3 hours at most. Usually down to 1 bar by then

I charge off my PS4 and get great battery life. Easily can game 2-3 hours without even worrying about losing more than 1 bar.

This controller sat unused for maybe 18 months and has been in use for the last 6

Maybe I just have a bad battery. Like I said this is an original launch PS4 so it's been used quite a bit

I have this. Never had a controller die. I've had some long sessions too. My PS4 is new, so it's probably not the best gauge.
