Demon's Souls Player Discovers PS5 Trophy Videos Record Mic Audio, Too

The PlayStation 5 creates videos when you earn trophies--and they might just capture your celebrations.


Defeating an enemy in a Souls game can be extremely satisfying, and with the Demon's Souls remake debuting as a PlayStation 5 launch title, many early adopters are discovering the joys of slaying its titular demons. The PS5 records a video when you earn a trophy, and one player made a fun discovery as he defeated the Tower Knight--that video can include your mic audio.

Reddit user helloiamjack posted a video of his successful defeat of the Demon's Souls boss to the PS5 subreddit, and amusingly, it features some audio of his victory celebration. He's a "first time" Souls player, and he's understandably excited about defeating the giant enemy.

You can watch the video below--just make sure you turn your volume up for the best results.

The PS5 DualSense mic turns on by default in multiplayer, so remember to switch it off if you don't want people to hear you.

Demon's Souls is one of the highlights of the PS5 launch, and earned a 9/10 in GameSpot's review. "Bluepoint has taken From Software's original game and expressed it in a richer and fuller way, and in doing so given me something I thought was impossible: the opportunity to relive the experience of falling in love with Souls games for the first time," wrote critic Tamoor Hussain.

The PS5 is still very difficult to buy. Keep an eye on our PS5 buyer's guide for stock as it appears in stores.
