I need to get back into Dicso Elysium. I bought it when it first came out but a couple of things irked me, so I out it down until they patched it some. Like when highlighting things with the right stick, I would have thought press X several times it seemed to get the character to interact. That and the rumors of the game locking you out of quests and such.

They patched everything expect for one quest issue that I am aware of. However they might have released more patches since I stopped paying attention a couple months ago. It was in a good state when I stopped playing. Other than the one quest you had to do a specific way or it locked you out of it.

You can use a USB to transfer the saves. It looks like there is an in game option to upload the save to use on ps5 so you'll also likely need to have the PS4 version installed somewhere. I don't think you'll have to actually xfer your save physically since it's likely a square side cloud save.

I'll probably pick Disco up, but I just got The Last of Us Part II from the library and need to start and finish it in 7 days.

very easy to do if you rush it as well as use a lot of the accessibility options that make it easier.

I thought Disco would be longer but I cleared it in about 3 days playing about 5-7 hours a day on average and I did most of the tasks/quests that I could find. It was a great experience. Very dark, but very deep.

Yeah, i thought it was just like the Spiderman save, where you go to the menu of the game and you have the option to upload save, and then you can download it from ps5 version of the games menu when it's out next week. i didn't realize you need ps+ for it. i have ps+, just didn't realize that.

I have always heard that between the PS4 PRO and XB1X, games perform better on the XB1X. It was something about the PS4 PRO not having real 4k. So how does the PS5 (playing PS4 games) compare to the XB1X? Is it the same performance/quality or is the PS5 better?

I don't have the ps4 anymore is the thing. It's no big deal unless I need a save to access intermission but I'm guessing that will be playable from the menu so it's unlikely

I dont have an 1X and never had a 4k console before this. From what Ive seen so far, it really depends on the game and developers if they patched the game or not for new consoles. It seems the PS5 can do the same resolution (or better) of the PRO with stable 60fps. Maybe its better on XBOX series because they had originally more wiggle room to work with which would mean there might not be any patching needed.

In terms of 4k, there is a lot of stuff I dont understand and am not interested in understanding really. From what Ive seen, most games have a max of 1800c/p @60fps which is "almost" 4k. I dont really care that much, as I probably wont notice the difference between 1800 and 2160. So far Ive only cared for having solid 60fps. I have a 65" TV if that helps.

Check how the games perform here:

They run smoother it's not huge. You only really get a bigger difference when there is a patch that unlocks fps, or a patch that adds 4k support.. it typically does not do it natively. I am still shocked to this day that Ghosts is a last gen game. I never played it on ps4... Only only on the PS5 and it's just wow.

It is the most impressive game Ive played so far. Looks up to par if not better than any PS5 game.

I was very impressed with Shadow of the Colossus too. Its not patched though, Im sure it could run at Quality mode and 60fps on the PS5. Im hoping for a patch on that one and Last Guardian.

Just a heads up: I e-mailed Spiders awhile back about whether Greedfall was getting a free upgrade to PS5 alongside the physical release of the gold edition. Jehanne Rousseau replied today to say that they were awaiting final confirmation from the publisher (Focus Home), but that, as far as she knew, there would be a free PS5 upgrade if you have the PS4 version. (The expansion coming with the gold edition will be available as paid, separate DLC).

Wonder if the free PS+ version would qualify. I dropped it waiting for the PS5 version hoping for 60 FPS

Not sure about the PS+ version. Also, I just realized that Jehanne Rousseau is the Spiders CEO. That's crazy that she actually responded to my e-mail personally. Also, she just sent another e-mail saying that they're working on making it so that PS4 saves will work in the PS5 version too.

Doesn't release till tomorrow and you need to have the disc version or bought it digitally. The free PS+ version doesn't qualify. So just wait till tomorrow.

Did u buy your ff7 remake, or was it from the free ps+ game? If u got it from ps+, you don't get a free upgrade. But either way, you will have this wait til tomorrow to do anything

I'm currently playing The Last of Us Part II with the 60fps 4K patch that I borrowed from the local library. Just made it through the "first half" of the game. This one seems way more violent than the original which I played on PS3. I am enjoying how they flash back between the past and present to setup the narrative. Game seems much easier than the first one, but perhaps I just got better at stealth gameplay and stealth kills.

It is easier. After you beat it you can unlock some cheat code stuff too that's pretty cool and makes replaying easier. infinite ammo/resources

There were some set pieces in TLoU 2 that felt overwhelming on higher difficulties. It gave me a sense that I wouldn't be able to pull it off. I never felt that way with part 1- except maybe the end game area tunnel- that was rough. They did a job on the clicker placing - AI that made it much more difficult to play like I did for 1.

Some of the very open areas in 2 were similar but designed as maze like so you'd need to try many times to run the right way if you chose that route. Then you run right into one of those roided up axe / board dudes. Like an inside joke almost.

Sony is doing the Microsoft thing with the console OS. Where you can sign up for beta builds and help them test it. And get to see the new OS features early. I did this with XB1 and hated it. So I wont be doing it with PS5. There were a couple of times I had to factory reset the console to fix issues with the OS from that beta program. But if anyone is interesting in doing it with their PS5 you can sign up here: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/ps5/ps5-beta-pro...

Just finished up the demo for Team Ninja's Final Fantasy: Chaos Edition and I really enjoyed it. It's a ton of fun! I went in ready to hate it so I skipped all the tutorials at the beginning so I got my ass handed to me for the first 15 or so minutes, but I got to grips with the combat (it's a very cool and unique blend of the Final Fantasy job system and a Nioh-like battle system) and ended up enjoying my time with it. I played as a Mage, but you can switch back and forth between 2 jobs which should add some nice variety. It was weird to see classic Final Fantasy enemies and Final Fantasy spells in this sort of game, but it works! I played on Normal and it offers a nice challenge. The final boss took me a dozen tries (really awesome boss fight!) and the game, on the whole, is nicely balanced already.

The game obviously still needs quite a bit of polish (lock-on is a little wonky, the camera isn't the best, some framerate issues), but I'm sure the final version of the game will have those issues ironed out. As @kevolones mentioned, the AI companions are useless. I'm not sure what purpose they serve. And the elemental wheel needs to be made more intuitive. Not a fan of the current design. My biggest issues from the initial reveal are still there: I don't like the art design, I don't like the characters, and I hate the lighting because it makes everything look dull and old. Doesn't feel like I'm playing a next-gen game at all, but the foundation Team Ninja has built is very solid and I'm completely sold on the gameplay.

Honestly pretty shocked that I enjoyed it as much as I did. Definitely worth downloading the demo if you're even a little curious about it.

has anyone had any luck on good release date information for the new dualsense controller colors? From what I understood, PS Direct buyers were getting them a week in advance (on the 11th), Best Buy had today as their release date, Gamestop has no release date on the site and the store has no information (they changed from the 7th, to the 11th, to the 18th, to now nothing), and Target has the 25th as their release date. Is there any accurate info out there by chance?

edited to add as i discovered new news & possibly help anyone else with my same question: shipments for the controllers were delayed and they are supposed to be out, but now expecting to have them on the 22nd

Caved and bought Rift Apart at full price. Really digging it so far. Although it feels a bit clunky in some sections, which is probably due to the rumble/feedback stuff. I'm over that gimmick already. It was cool in a couple games. But I'm not a fan anymore. Camera also seems to default to a very low position after cinematic reset and doesn't seem to want to come out of it right away.

I kinda feel the same about the feedback. It's cool and all, but not as revolutionary as some are making it out to be.

I think it's all about the implementation. I would consider what they did for Astro's Playroom to be revolutionary. It's been more hit and miss with the other games I've played. I thought the way the feel differs by weapon on Godfall was kinda neat as well.

I wouldnt say revolutionary, but I agree that it is impressive in Astros. I havent played any other game to use the dualsense like that yet.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOVED Rift Apart. It really got me excited for this gen. I view it as sort of the welcome wagon for next gen. It felt like the truly first "next gen" game. I was impressed with the dualsense with astro's play room. But it's like a one trick pony. I'm already used to it. I did like the sensation when Ratchet way typing. I think it was some combo of really light haptic + the speaker. It really felt like little "types".

Overall I like the duelsense feedback, including the triggers. Some games make very good use of the triggers. Like Borderlands 3, which has a crazy amount of guns, and they all feel different.

I think the thing is Astro's just used it SO well, that Ratchet pales in comparison. Wasn't there a tweet from the game dev hinting they might be making a full blown astro's platformer?

Like, when Ratchet is in the rain, it doesn't even have haptic feedback for that. So they did some "ok" things with the guns and the typing, and the light pitter patter in the snow, but that's about it.

There was a PS Blog post when Astro's came out, where at the end they said "Astro will have more news to share soon". There may have also been a tweet, I don't remember.

I have a hard time calling this a gimmick ... I am so used to it that when I play a game on the Series X, I feel like I am missing something. IMO, that is the biggest difference this gen the controller and everything about it is just so much better on the PS5. The Series X does not have a bad controller, but it does not feel as good as the Dualsense.

I'm playing 2016 Ratchet after I beat Rift in Time. Love the weapon leveling up system. Encourages you to keep switching.

Crack in Time? That's still my favorite R&C game. I remember thinking at the time that it would be the last R&C game, but I'm so thankful that Insomniac and Sony didn't give up on the franchise. So nice to see people jumping into the series for the first time.

I think Crack in Time was the first one that got me into Ratchet. I remember seeing it on a small TV at fry's electronics and thinking the graphics looked great! Back in the PS3 days, personally I thought those 720p games looked better if you could play on a smaller HD TV. But yeah since then I've been a huge Ratchet fan. Would love a Crack in Time HD port. I Just need more Ratchet in my life!

What exactly does leveling up the weapon do? I'm loving the game so far as well but very early. Just noticed that leveling up my character eventually gave me more HP

@Shane12m Leveling your weapons allows you to further upgrade them using Raritanium. Also when you reach Level 5, it becomes a different gun and does something extra

Ah so the tree expands? So when I level up I'll see more options? That all sounds awesome

When you level the gun up (not the character), yes it will fill in and give you more upgrades. To level up the guns you just have to use them. And then when you finish the game and start Challenge Move (NG+) each gun then levels up to 10 and unlocks a new final form.

indeed it is awesome. Not sure about rift in time but each level means 20% or more damage per shot. And you unlock rare versions of the weapons which encourages a SECOND playthrough! I mean if you start loving the game trust me you'll be ready to play again.

Sounds like EA might be bringing Dead Space back. They will be announcing a new game in an existing IP at the next EA Play, next month. They didn't say which IP the game was in. But everyone seems to think its Dead Space. A new Dead Space trilogy would be cool.

I just beat Dead Space last week, and immediately started DS2. They still hold up pretty well and I've constantly been thinking it would be amazing if the series came back and looked something like RE2 Remake.

As long as it's more along the lines of the original Dead Space, I'm down! I think EA learned with Jedi Fallen Order that you can still make a lot of money if you release a great single player game. Hopefully they don't try to tack on multiplayer and focus on action over horror like they did with Dead Space 3.

Watch it be a Jedi Fallen Order 2 announcement, which is fine by me and all, but like...Dead Space man. Come on!

That would be a welcome announcement as well. But this was said to be "a revival of an established IP". So it wouldn't be to anything recent. It could actually be from a wide list of franchises under their umbrella. I would also take another Skate game.

Looks like Sony is sending out emails for direct PS5 orders again. I just got one, even thought I already bought one from them. Wed the 23rd is when the email is for. So keep a look out in your inbox if you still need one. I'd give the link to someone, but its tied to PSN profile.

Sony suspended my account because it got hacked last month and bank investigated / reversed charges. They're holding my account hostage until I pay for the 3 games hacker bought. I turned off text / 2 step authentication for about 48 hours to figure out how to set it up on my vita and someone got in that fast. Make sure y'all have 2 step on and leave it on. It's amazing what you CANNOT use if you're not signed in. Basically vanilla pure physical discs / no DLC is all I'm able to use. Not even streaming services.

Skate was one of the first things I thought of, but I Googled it and one was already announced last year.

Even though there is probably less than 1% chance of it happening, the other day I was thinking about the old "Strike" series of games from the 16-bit era and kinda wishing we could get a new one of those. They haven't made one since the N64.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strike_(video_game_series)

I'd even gladly welcome a new Command & Conquer

I just did 2FA. it's going to be a pain in the ass for me though, as I mostly play via Remote Play which means even more 2FA steps.

If the new Amazon listing is to be believed, this PS5 version drops on the 30th.
