Hoo boy indeed.
Even averaging by 365 days that's still 6 hours per day.
A Platinum every 3 and a half days.

I don't know whether to be impressed, sorry for you or call the FBI to report the weirdest sweat shop ever.


Hm if it was 10 or more hours per day then yeah but I’d say that’s not bad

I believe these totals include time spent in rest mode as well.

And Netflix Hulu Disney plus and stuff as well. I think they may also add up total saves on occasion.

I dont think so. I had mine in rest mode most of the time I'm not playing and had 600 hours. That feels pretty accurate. I can't attest to the streaming though. I use a fire stick for that.

There's no way, because mine's pretty much on rest mode all the time.

if you didn't agree to the sharing of data with sony and partners it won't work for you.

Same for me. It worked every year they have done this except this year.

It's annoying but I can view my stats on other sites were things work properly.

Same here, and I just wasted time going through TWENTY "which mouse can't reach the cheese" captcha things just to get that stupid vague error message. I swear, everything internet related these days just feels like digitally swatting flies, smh.

If it makes you do 20 of the maze mice captchas, just back out or close the tab and open a new one to try to sign in again. That refreshed it for me and then it only made me do 3 of them.

The hours sound about right as I had more time to play last year.  Working from home means less time driving back and forth to work, more time on the console.  Six hours every weeknight after work and much more on the weekends could be fine.
 
What doesn't add up (other than 549 days played in one year,) is that it says I played 77 games but earned 100 platinums.  That doesn't seem possible.  I don't know exactly what days they're counting between, but according to my completed games list for 2021, I only earned 76 platinums in 2021, so that seems more inline with their 77 games played count.

Yeah, if rest mode counted, then mine would be much higher as I keep mine in all the time when I'm not playing.

inb4 they'll continue to argue that it's something on your end and not sony's fault because heaven forbid companies make mistakes instead of being infallible.

Freeze Time? Did you change screen names? ;)

Nice. That's going to look real nice. I'm tempted by the purple, but the black is probably safer.

I finally put the black case on this morning. Before when it was white I would walk in my room and the huge white PS5 was a giant eye sore. First thing you would see. Now with the black covers it is almost invisible on its shelf. Exactly what I wanted. I do not regret paying $60 for it.

 

Also if anyone plans to buy that or something else off of Playstation Direct, shoot me a PM and I will give you the $5 off code that came with my covers.

Nice. Going for the all black set up. Is it your bedroom or man cave? The entertainment center for my modern set up in my game room is already has a few standout colored consoles on it. My silver Reach 360, grey Retron 5, black & red Monster Hunter PS4 pro & white PS5. So I picked up the red covers last night. It pops & adds to the colors of that room.

It is my man cave. I have my black Series X, black external HD for XBox, black Switch, black Logitech hub, black AV receiver, black center speaker all in the TV stand. Now I have a black PS5. The stand itself is also black so it all blends in well.

Sounds slick. I have two set ups in my man cave modern & retro. The modern set up is black 3 tiered stand with the PS5, PS4, PS3, Retron 5, Switch, Series X, 360 & Wii U. The retro set up is a grey two tiered shelf & Grey CRT with the NES, Genesis, PS1, N64, Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube & Wii. I didn't go for a uniform color scheme. There are so many colors everywhere. It's fun though. Lol!

I realize you have a Retron in the modern setup, but no SNES in that retro set up?

Yeah i don't. I never grew up with the SNES. All of my retro consoles are the same ones I've had for decades. My parents got me a Genesis during that era. I do have a small collection of SNES games (less than 10) that I play on my retron. I just started collecting for it last year. There are a lot of great games on it so the plan is to pickup a OEM console at a convention/swap meet this year. It has to be a good deal though. I also want to get another OG Xbox. My original died a few years ago.

Gotcha, yeah the SNES has a ton of great games so definitely worth getting a collection for, especially if you missed some back in the day!
