Doesn't look like there's a discussion thread for PS4, unless I'm blind. Let's discuss PS4, then, in this thread.

Recent news: according to Kotaku, Gamestop is no longer taking preorders for the system. Hope you got your preorder in!

I have sent in a console to get repaired twice, my Gamecube (got via trade here and was oow) and my PS2. Nintendo had lax warranty and was able to get it repaired for free, Sony was going to charge $120 to replace the drive HOWEVER, the guy I talked to was really cool and I don't remember exactly what he did but I ended up getting it fixed for free.

Anyway, it was $120 back then, I am not sure if it's changed because it's been 16 years since my last issue. I would just go get a new system. You should still be able to do data transfer pretty easily (assuming your stuff is not on an external). When I upgraded from my Slim to the Pro all I did was take a network cable plugged it directly into both and BAM. Of course having everything on an external is even easier raspberry

Everyone's adopting the Apple method, since they get away with it with multi-thousand dollar devices. "Oy vey, this repair will cost as much as the hardware! You sure you don't want to just buy new hardware?"

Just beat Spider-Man and got the plat in one play-through. Insomniac really knocked it out of the park. I beat God of War before this and that was also a fantastic game. Now I can either start Red Dead II or Detroit.

Should be an easy fix if you find a drive for cheap.

Ive had my PS4 almost since release and the drive hasnt failed me with the exception of the ocasional spitting out the discs on its own (i know how to fix it tho). The Power Supply died once though (due to a thunder storm), easy fix and only $25.

How hard was the Spider-man plat? I have it and want to play that also but I probably should finish RDR2 seeing as how I am only 2% in and have not played since early November frown I am looking for a good deal on Detroit, I can't believe with all these sales for the last month or more that it never popped up at all.

It's not hard, it just takes time. By the time you finish the game you've probably either unlocked everything or are about to unlock everything required for the off-spots and it's down to 100% each city area, which requires you to do all the crimes (and arenas and challenges); the crimes usually come last and pop up sporadically over time. It's just a time sink. Turn off the in-game music and fire up Spotify, it'll take a few hours.

Think I cleared the game in like, a bit more than 12 or so hours; finishing all the crimes took another day for me, so like six to eight hours on top. Not difficult, just have to clear a crime and wait for the next one to pop up until you "finish", then move to the next section.

Yeah just swing around to different areas of the district and crimes should pop up. Takes a lot for me to go out of my way to plat a game but I enjoyed just traversing the city so it wasn't too hard for me.

Traversal was probably my favorite thing about Spider-Man. I didn't think a Spider-Man game would nail that feeling of being Spider-Man as well as Spider-Man 2 on the PS2 did, but the folks at Insomniac managed to pull it off. Such a great game. I need to play through the rest of the DLC at some point.

Just stumbled on this really cool video series on Days Gone. I think the game might be winning me over. I really like what I'm seeing with the world design and the game's systems. Bike customization looks really cool as well. I hope they release something that highlights the story in a meaningful way because that may just put me over the edge.

I wasn't even interested in the game until I watched that video. It always seemed kinda shallow to me like most zombie games do, but seeing stuff about the world and the game's systems gives me a bit of hope that it's more than just a generic open-world zombie game. Maybe it's the way the video is cut that makes it seem interesting, but I am definitely a LOT more interested than I was before.

Bend Studios did all the Syphon Filter games, Resistance Retribution on PSP and Uncharted Golden Abyss on Vita, I'm a fan of those games I've beaten all of them except Resistance and Syphon Filter Omega Strain. So unless it gets trash reviews I'll probably get Days Gone.

How's the Spider-Man DLC? Finished the game last night, now I'm just polishing up my 100% in each district. Really liked the game, but I keep reading mixed things on the DLC. I think I'm going to buy it just because I want to play more of the game, but just curious if anyone had any opinions on it.

Assuming you're asking if it's worth playing, I think it totally is. If all you cared about in the game is watching the story, then youtube it and stick to animations from now on haha. The DLC mechanically as fun as the main game, there's just nothing particularly new introduced and it's short. But, that tends to be the case with DLC no matter what. Tbh Spider-man at least paaacks the "same old" in there, so there is a lot more to do than most DLCs even if you've seen it all in the main game.

I didnt get that email. Whats really impressive to me is that you played 14 hours straight (?). Were you streaming?


Edit: yeah I guess gaming streak doesnt mean consecutive hours. It says I spent 11, Ive never played that much..

Yeah, I don't know what the streak thing is. I for sure didn't play 14 hours in a row. The most I ever play at once is 5-6 hours on a Sunday. And that is with breaks. So I have no idea what the streak thing is. Maybe it counted leaving a game suspended or something?

Anyone check out the Anthem "demo"?

I remembered today that at some point last year I setup an EU PSN account. I logged into it and had 38 euros in the account. I ended up buying Elex for 15 (never seen it this cheap on our store) and a game called The Hong Kong Massacre for 12. Its like an even harder version of Hotline Miami, and with cops vs triad story line. Doesn't appear to be headed to our store. Its pretty fun, but insanely hard. I've died over a 100 times before the first boss. It comes out here on the 31st.

I wish we had the sales they get in Europe. They get 70-80% of sales. We are lucky if we ever see a 60%. Its usually just 40% for a couple games and one game at 60% that no one wants. But their store has actually good games at 70% off. Might have to start buying more EU cards and waiting for sales on their store.

Hitman season 1 is a short but sweet ride. Gotta say that list is a bit lackluster for me when stacking it up against what XB1 GWG has coming for next month. Star Wars Jedi Academy alone is worth extending my gold another month to indulge in.

GameTZ Subscriber Quadruple Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally Canada

I was a little underwhelmed with the GwG offering myself. Jedi Academy looks good but I find that I should leave these games in the past. I go and try to revisit them and and up ruining it a bit. I loved Crimson Skies but I find that the game itself does not typically hold up well.. I had more fun with back in the day, it does not carry the same WOW it once did and KoTOR I could not get into again at all, the controls were horrible.

I want modern remasters of these games! Of course new games also but these games don't hold up as well as there 2d counter parts IMO....


Anyway how is For Honor? I am glad I did not pull the trigger over the holiday's now that I can get it with PS+.



*edit *

Gamepass looks good... kinda want to play skyrim again... I had it on PC but I don't have one that could run it right now.

For Honor is pretty intense. Played it at launch with a couple of buddies and the one on one duels are so much fun! Only played it that one time because fighting games aren't really my thing. And I second @TalonJedi87 on Hitman. Short but sweet and well worth checking out. I've got to jump on season 2 at some point...maybe once I finish with Kingdom Hearts III.

Nothing for me personally this month, but I think it's a good month. It's also nice to see the PS3 getting a nice sendoff. Metal Gear Solid 4 isn't really my favorite game in the series, but it's still a damn fine game!

hitman is something i'll def play sometime, so that's a nice addition, I think gwg had it recently as well? I haven't kept up real well with adding the free games to collection list the last few months so I need to do that at some point so I don't double up on anything. maybe it was in a humble, but im thinking I have it for some reason already.

jedi academy is a game im very glad to see as I was going to pick it up at some point. I have new remaster of rogue but that's an alright one for people who didn't have it.

Ya I meant GwG for Feb will likely benefit people who haven't experienced those games yet. If you have it's kind of lackluster. With the exception of Jedi Academy. A long lost relic, that is.

And even Hitman 2 is short and sweet. No way worth full MSRP $60 at all in any way shape or form. Both games I value at $30 or less as they can both be toppled in a couple of days each.

im expecting ps4 only as well, but its a start if they will do it going forward from there. id love to be able to use my psn library on one machine though, they can do it its just will they. if they do it and its built in with emu's for ps1-3 lets hope its better than the playstation crapsic, I mean playstation classic.

It wouldn't need to be for PS4, because they actually moved to a standard architecture for PS4. So it was always going to be backwards compatible going forward (as in the PS5/6/7 would all be able to play anything back to the PS4). This would be for the PS5 to play PS1/2/3 games.

This is like the third or fourth backwards compatibility patent I've seen. It'll be interesting to see if/how they've solved the issue of making PS3 games backwards compatible because that console's infrastructure is pretty insane. I hope this isn't taking resources away from funding new games. I'm not interested in them wasting money on BC if it takes away from the real reason I'll be buying a PS5: to play new games. As long as it's not, I'm all for it.

RPCS3 is making real progress, so if a group of fans can build a PS3 emulator surely sonys architects can. Even if the ps5 plays 1-3 through a software emulator they could do it fine if they just take more than a week to build it. Ps1 and 2 already have great emulators.. they could even put upscaling options in.

Guys, do not sleep on Dreams. I have a friend who played the beta and couldn't stop raving about it. I even more confident now that Media Molecule will be able to pull it off. Some of the things I've seen and some of the impressions I've read are just what I hoped this game could deliver. I think this could end up being the best exclusive on the console which is saying something.

That sounds like a message on my Yogi tea bags haha "Do not sleep on dreams."

And in regards to the patent, it will be interesting to see if PS1/2/3 games come into the fold on PS5 because honestly I'm not sure how many people actually will continue to benefit from the rather pricey PS Now service.
