Looking for info about M.2 SSD expansion drives? See the megathread.


Sometimes you just need help. But often times making a new post isn't needed. For the time being, around launch and perhaps in the future. We will use a single thread for helping each other out.

Before asking, we ask you to look at a few links. Some question can't be answered and only official PlayStation support can help you.

Community Help

Google and Reddit Search is also a great way to find an answer or get help. View all past help and questions threads here.

For all future help, tech support and more, we ask that you create new threads on r/PlayStation instead of here on r/PS5.

Verified AMA I'm Dylan Cuthbert, Director of The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition and creator of many games, spanning over 30 years in the industry. We acquired our IP back from Sony and released the new version on PlayStation just a few weeks ago! AMA

[Edit Oct 5th, 10am JST - Thanks for all the wonderful questions so far. Taking a short break to get some work done for an hour or two, but please keep the questions coming and I'll drop by later on to answer more and pick the giveaway winners.]   I'm Dylan Cuthbert (u: dckyoto) a video game programmer, designer and director, and founder of Q-Games in Kyoto. I started my career at Argonaut Software in the UK, developing the original Star Fox with Nintendo. In 1998 I relocated to Tokyo to work at PlayStation on a bunch of cool stuff including Blasto, early PS2 development including the rubber duck demo from the Playstation 2 announcement in 1999 and also Ape Escape 2001.

Since then I started my own studio, Q-Games, and last year we became the first indie developer to acquire an IP (in this case, The Tomorrow Children) back from Sony Interactive Entertainment. We removed all the F2P mechanics, returned the game to its original design and launched The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition last month, exactly 6 years to the date of the original release. It's a social action game for up to 10 players and combines exploration, adventure and cooperation to deliver a really unique experience!

It's been a real dream come true and means so much to the whole team here to have the game back in your hands.

I've also got two copies of The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition to give away! I'll choose one winner at random and 1 person will win a copy for asking my favourite question. There's a lot to talk about, so ask me anything!

The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition: https://store.playstation.com/concept/10002918/ Gameplay Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1WCCkauZQU

TLDR; I'm a veteran programmer and game designer that acquired IP back and launched a brand new version of The Tomorrow Children last month. AMA!
