I hope they actually release the entire game on day 1. We have to wait way to long as it is. Lol.

Was that the same Steph from Before the Storm? I wonder how she fits into both stories? Maybe school is over and this is where she is from?

They said it's not episodic. And yes it's Steph.

I don't know if this is the case for all PS4 games or it's an isolated game but if you put Dragon Age Inquisition into sleep mode and don't close the game, it still records play time while in sleep mode.

All games running in sleep mode keep tracking play time. If the game is running, playing time is moving.

EDIT, I should say for PS4 games only.

Weird. I don't think that was a thing on PS4. I always close games out on PS5 though.

It did it on PS4 as well. I had many games on the PS4 itself keep tracking play time while suspended. So a lot of my PS4 game play times are like 200+ hours, when in reality I only played it for like 40-60 hours. If the game had an in game running time tracker, and it wasn't coded to pause on suspend (most of them were not) it would just keep running. Happens to most PS4 games on PS4 or PS5. On the PS5 though for PS5 games, since it is also controlled at the OS level it is paused when a PS5 game is put in the suspended state. But I don't think that can over ride the in game counter in the game for PS4 games that will just keep tracking running time. The OS time for a PS4 game on PS5 should show you the correct play time. But the in game tracking will be wrong. Unless that is some how fixed on PS5 by the OS controller. I could be wrong and it is fixed on PS5. But you just had it happen, so I am assuming it is not.

Weird. I never noticed it on PS4 and I put games to sleep a lot. But I usually went to the PlayStation Menu screen when I did it, not in game and then put to sleep.

Im excited

If this means more PS2 games on the PS5 I'm all for it. I'd love to replay a lot of older PS2 games, but don't want to pay some of the crazy prices to get a physical copy. This would be amazing if they had plans to add most of the PS2 catalog digitally to PS5 via emulation. But, that is probably just wishful thinking on my part. Sony files a lot of patents that never come to anything.

I don't really care for video game movies. I'm ok keeping my games and movies separate. Some times movies can make good games. Like Mad Max. Hyped for that Hogwarts Legacy game. Usually not the other way around.

That newer Mortal Kombat movie looks like it might be ok.

A question for those of you using an external USB drive set up as "Extended Storage" to install PS4 games. Can you also copy your screenshots/videos to the USB HD? Every time it try to copy even a single screenshot it says USB Drive not connected. However it sees the drive just fine and I can install/play PS4 games. If I format to exFat I can copy the screenshots, but not install PS4 games. Is this really how this is supposed to work? Half my PS5 internal drive is full of screenshots/videos now.

I actually just did that. But can you transfer those items when using it as extended storage? I'm trying to determine if the drive is faulty while I can still return it.

No idea. Maybe try transferring a PS4 save file, and if that works its possible those clips are somehow only movable to PS5 only storage devices.

I've had my eye out on this but from what I can tell it's only digital, and I don't think I'd enjoy it enough to own it for $30. If it goes on sale for half that I'll bite, but these guys put out The Medium too so that soured my overall excitement for Observer.

That would be great. Its driving me crazy not knowing if my drive is faulty or the error message is just misleading. It literally says USB drive not connected, yet I'm playing games installed on the "not connected" drive.

Well I went ahead and bought it for full price. When I dive into it, I will let you know my thoughts on it. I read a ton of reviews about it and most people say that it's a masterpiece, and that they did a lot of work in this redux. Like add ray tracing, new story missions, touched up the stealth parts, etc.
I read several people say that it's this dev teams best work. I guess I will find out
