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!

If you haven't played since it updated, just delete the game data and re-install/download. Sony pulled update so it wont download again. I'm probably going to do that tonight myself.

Funny thing is too, its only affect Pro's. Tons of people on base model are saying they aren't having the issue with the patch installed.

I'm on 1.06 and played an hour and a half today with no issues. I will be annoyed if it fudges up my save though

I took the risk and tested before doing so, and I haven't had any issues with the patch. 90 minutes of play time and not one issue.

Same. Put in 3 hours today on a pro, and no issues on my end with the 1.06 patch. Must be other factors besides just the patch - maybe how far they're in, etc.

Yeah, not sure. I put in about 2.5 hours total myself tonight and not one issue. I didn't even have any frame rate issues when coming up on one of the big hordes either.

@gypsy Yakuza 6 spoilers...


So Haruto really is Haruka's kid and Yuta of all people is the father??? Sigh. I was so sure the kid was just someone Haruka rescued and trying to protect. I'm pretty bummed now. I was hoping we'd get some sort of flashback and we'd find out Haruka was doing something cool like training to be a bad ass like Uncle Kaz and just got herself caught up in something crazy. Instead she just getting knocked up by some random dude. I just had to pause the game to get that all out lol. Just left Onomichi on a boat.

Looks like a new Days Gone patch it out, I am guessing to fix the crashing stuff

I just found this article about a new Days Gone patch gone live to address audio issues.

https://comicbook.com/gaming/2019/05/01/new-days-g...

They also notated this:

"Known Issues

The crash on startup and other issues in this scope are being investigated. As of now, if you haven't downloaded Patch 1.06 and start up Days Gone, you will remain with Patch 1.05 active. Updates to come."

There's a 1.07 patch that went live this morning.

How can a game go "gold" if it needs constant patches? Do they really test games on the actual console or just test on PCs and "assume" it's all good?

This wasn't made for PC so I assume they test it on actual PS4s. Every single PS4 and X1 game I have ever played had update patches. I think when you have 80+ GB games with millions of downloads across 3 different system types (fat, slim, Pro) with different build types within those 3 you're going to get these types of things.

The game has only been out since last Friday and they're already patching buds which is a good thing in my opinion. We're never going to see a prefect working product for everyone on launch day on ANY game considering how big and variable these are. especially when you have to account for 4K on some machines, 1080p on others etc.

Some users experiences zero issues with this game, which shows you how varied a response you can get.

Patches are going to be part of life forever now. Games have so many features and they are so big and have so much going on.

I guess it's really a rhetorical question. Sometimes a game comes out that doesn't need a ton of updates to make it more playable.

Yoshi Crafted World has been out for over a month, plays flawlessly and has not had 1 patch since launch. God bless the Nintendo. Their QA team is on point.

Borderlands 3 gameplay showing right now live. Looks awesome. Sliding and mantle pull up abilities now. Secondary firing modes on guns.

Ask EA

Ask Anthem. They can make a Games as a Service title and not know what it even was going to be 6 out of the 7 years of development.

It did have a minor patch actually, about a week ago raspberry

Since the Switch era began it's not uncommon for Nintendo developed games to have day one patches (Yoshi didn't have one and that surprised me, but then again the game was finished and available to pre-purchase on the eShop 3 months ahead of release). But most of their post-launch patches are usually so small that if you have auto updates enabled it's possible to not even notice that they had downloaded in the background. It's way different than the mess of a day one update Wii U had at launch.

Was Borderlands the first "looter shooter"? I'm sure it probably wasn't, but probably the first "big" one.

Yeah don't remind me. I'll never buy another GaaS game again. Dragon Age 4 will be GaaS apparently. Granted, I never liked that series but after Anthem I'd never buy anything by Bioware again.

It wasn't the first, but it was the first that wasn't a top down looter shooter. There were many diablo style loot games that were top down in that style where you shot guns. But Borderlands popularized the term, and brought it forward out of that old style of game. And it blew up from there.

And I have to say, much respect to Gearbox for not turning 3 into an online gaas style game with micro-transactions, and for sticking to their original formula.

No more "sharing" guns you find. Pick up a purple, there is still that purple there for the co-op partner, each getting it scaled to their level.

In this demo, a level 5 playing with a level 25. The level 5 sees level 5 enemies and does that level damage. They are all scaled to the other level for the other player.

Wonder how it'll work split screen. They didn't cover that.

I'm sure it's all fun and games in BL3 until they start incorporating microtransactions and loot boxes to get the really "good" gear and guns. I want to be excited for it, I truly do. I'm a big BL2 nut, but it's being published by 2K Games, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive and last time I checked Strauss Zelnick did not stop liking money.

PlayStation Plus - May 2019
- What Remains of Edith Finch
- Overcooked

They could have at least made it Overcooked 2, the original has been borderline free many times. I still think the service is well worth the cost but this is a very weak month for me.

It really is. I have been wanting to try WREF, but it's not a high want at all. Maybe not even a moderate want...

Well it'll be free and from what I hear really short. Can't be worse than Anthem.

Weak month. They raise the price, take away PS3 and Vita games, and then give out two indie games that have been on sale for like $5 a piece in the past. Unbelievable!

That said, Edith Finch is a dope game. Well worth checking out if you are into this type of game.

I'm 100% sure Edith Finch was already free. Because I own it. And I never bought it.

No, no lootboxes. There is a "loot box", the golden chest. But they give away the golden keys for free on the regular. No way to buy them.
