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!

Sooo... Skyrim didn't age well.

Actually it's just the opening sequence. After that it's fine.

i envy the time to replay a game the size and scope of the elder scrolls or the witcher... things i want to do one day with diffrent builds and choices.. but so long. my kids are about to enter the busiest part of their childhoods (the teen years) so i'll likely have less time to game over the next few years and then have a huge backlog when they're out of high school.

Yeah I probably should have picked something else. Because I did end up getting entirely way too into it. I stayed up way too late. I've never played a ES game in 3rd person, so decided to do that. Never played a purely magic caster, so did that. Never played as a lizard person (forgot name right now), so did that. And never played on the hardest difficulty, so did that. And never played with any mods, so did that. And before I knew it 3 hours had passed and I didn't want to stop. lol

Sign ups are open for the Code Vein beta test set for later this month. You'll be able to create a character, play through the opening area, and play through an online co-op dungeon. I'm really looking forward to checking it out.

Thanks, I just signed up! I heard Code Vein is supposed to be just as tough as Dark Souls. Good thing it's co-op!

And I found this article interesting in regards to load times being near obsolete on PS5.

6pm EST isn't a horrible time. The US isn't their only market. Have it on any later and it's the middle of the night in Europe.

That's a decent amount for the allotted time. Still don't really understand why they chose to do a 10 min thing, but that's neither here nor there. Anything catch your eye? Was FF7 gameplay or was it just CG stuff?

Riverbond looks pretty mildly interesting. FF7 had some cut-scene stuff and some battle footage. Battle looks like a mix of turn based and FF15 active combat, maybe. It was quick flashes, hard to tell exactly what it was. But it looked way too teen angst-y bullcrap-y to me overall (this is probably not the correct way to describe it). Kind of hard to explain. Just gave me a bad vibe. I need to see much more to make a proper opinion though. They said more will be shown in June.

Aside from that, none of the other stuff interested me.

Will have to watch FF7 when I get home

FF7 Remake I'm excited for although I wish they would have left the battle system alone. I hope it has some kinda turn based mechanic. The new gameplay trailer looked legit, but I hope they show more than 60 seconds at E3 and give us a friggin' release date or window.

Trying to unlock all the suits in Spider-man PS4. I need to complete the Silver Lining DLC for the suit I'm working on now and am only missing ONE side mission. Wikis and guides tell me this is either "Snipe Hunt" or "The Network is Down". I think it's Snipe Hunt but I can't really remember which ones I've done so far. Anyhow, NEITHER mission is showing up for me. I've beat the main story, and all the DLC stories, but for some reason this one side mission isn't showing up for me and it's the only thing I need to complete for this DLC pack.

Anyone hear anything about this? Did I miss the side mission? It's really frustrating that I'm going to the spots I'm supposed to visit only to find absolutely nothing there.

That gameplay footage looks amazing for FF7.

FF15 was the best battle system I've ever played. This looks like some kind of mix, man cannot fudging wait for this game.

FF7 looks awesome. Hopefully we get an extended look at the battle system during E3. It definitely gives me FF15 vibes which I don't mind too much either since I ended up really digging that battle system.

I'm with talon on that one, wish they'd left the atb, which I always do on wait to make it more turn based..but if it's clean I'll come closer to accepting it. It would be easy to say I trust squeenix after dq11 but that's the enix / dq team..might as well be a different company. If it ends up like I'm playing Advent children this could be pretty amazing.

My biggest hope is it's no longer episodic but I'm sure they want to start monetizing as much as possible...RPGs in episdoes rather than "sequels" I can see as something they will want to do in the future...and it's gross.

I also just figured out what is that is off to me about the FFVII footage. The characters look too real. FF characters shouldn't look so real. Even FFVX's characters looked anime and not real. But what they show looks life like. And its unsettling for some reason to me.

I thought Noctis looked pretty real.

They show you the nice smooth animations but when more footage is released they'll get scorched for reducing graphics or whatever same as Spiderman

I'm not entirely sure why I decided to start Days Gone when I'm still fudging playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Rage 2 comes out Tuesday. I'm loving Days Gone of course, but now I'm playing two long games when I know I will stop playing both of them (at least briefly) to see how Rage 2 fares. I don't know.

I'm the opposite, I see no reason to own an xbox since I have a PC that's better than the xbox one x anyway Haha. Ps4 has too many good games, but if you've already played them all, then not sure what to suggest.

Ugh if it's still episodic I'm passing as well. I thought Square would have learned to stop that episodic crap with the first Hitman game but nope. History repeats itself. Just give me a damn finished game already and stop flirting with this half-ass unfinished nonsense.

Umm...maybe check out some exclusives you haven't played yet? There are tons of them so there's bound to be a couple you haven't checked out yet. If you have played them all then I can't think of a reason to turn it back on at the moment if you've got a PC and an Xbox One X. The Show and Days Gone are the only exclusives I can think of that have come out so far this year and there's nothing else until Judgement which comes out next month. Everything else I can think of is multi plat and the only reason you'd opt to play a multi plat on a PS4 over a high end PC or an Xbox One X is if it's a multiplayer game and your friends are playing on PS4 or if you care about trophies and just want to keep stuff on one ecosystem.

On Crash...it's coming to the Xbox and Switch as well, not just the PS4. Oddly, there's no PC release. At least not yet.
