co-worker came in today and told me she got the PS4 with BF4 and AC4 and spent this weekend playing it. i felt ashamed of myself

Interesting - basically Share Play is the old network tunneling / Hamachi / LAN simulation to allow local multiplayer-only over the internet.

Actually, even better - only one person has to actually own the game. They're probably using the Gaikai/PSNow tech.

didn't this thing sell like 7 million units? And none to ILXors apparently?

There are a couple of ilxors - myself included - think it's that neither PS4 or XboxOne has reached critical mass enough (nor has enough exclusives), so the only chatter seems to be on 'The upcoming console generation' thread.

I bought one. It's currently languishing in the guest bedroom until a game comes out for it that I want to play.

I like the interface more than the PS3 interface and things are definitely pretty on it, it's just that there are very few games out for it that I want to play

might try to squeeze in some Injustice time before my MIL shows up and takes over that room

polyphonic, Friday, 12 September 2014 21:19 (four years ago) Permalink

I decided to take the plunge on one of these things; the lack of backwards compatability REALLY blows since I have a ton of old games that I still want to play, but between the good games that are out for it now, all the PS4 games I've already banked using PS+, and the fact that my old PS3 was getting too loud to use as a blu-ray player any more I said fuck it.

I can't quite dive into it full-on just yet since I'm going to swap out the stock HD for a 2 TB drive tonight and I didn't want to install everything twice (Destiny took HOURS to install last night ffs), but the little bit of tooling around that I've done with it so far has been really impressive. the new Dualshocks in particular are just a treat to use, although I had to get 2 just because the charge drains so fast (still better than the Wii U Gamepad, though). the Gold headset is p slick too - it's obviously the least of all the sets of headphones I own, but it's comfortable enough for me to wear it down until the battery dies, sounds good enough that I can turn off my speakers during gametime, and includes a built-in mic for chat & voice commands (which would be a lot cooler if I hadn't seen how much slicker the Xbone's voice stuff is).

anyway feel free to add my PSN ID (trdn89) if you need folks with whom to play.

the charge on the pads drains so quickly you need more than one pad? how quickly are we talking here, like minutes?

♛ LIL UNIT ♛ (thomp), Thursday, 25 September 2014 23:20 (four years ago) Permalink

I think I typically get a few hours, but the cable provided is like 30cm, so you can't charge-while-you-play unless you're parked in front of the TV. Also, what typically happens to me is that I've charged it, played for a couple of hours, watched some Netflix. Next day I go to play and after 5mins it says it's dead.

CraigG, Friday, 26 September 2014 14:28 (four years ago) Permalink

Yeah, the battery life on the DS4 is terrible. If you've got an outlet near where you play, though, you can plug a microUSB cable into any USB charger and play and charge at the same time.

the better part of twenty years they've been making these controllers and they keep finding ways to make them more expensive and worse

Shoot. I was hoping for this next year. Have they confirmed it'll be a PS4 exclusive? Would hope, like most of the other games in the series, it'd come out on the 360/xbone, too.

Speaking of SH, this SH book looks pretty good. Can anyone confirm?

the DS4 is way better than 3 in every way except for battery life which is bad enough to cancel out all the improvements

fucking hell, it took me 2 hours to load and it was like a bad channel 5 late night movie or something. Lousy gameplay, hmm let's follow a horse for nearly 10 minutes with some tedious expository "world building" dialogue. not for me.

RDR2 has a really slow intro, and if you didn't like the story during that part you're not going to like where it goes from there, most likely. i found it to be really fun once it opened up to an actual open world game, but it takes several hours of gameplay before you're past the tutorial missions and you can finally get a decent setup with most of core game mechanics unlocked. by the time you get that far, you'll have watched the guy ride his horse and have really dumb conversations for a really long time, though

To play devil's advocate against my own feelings on this subject: PERSONA 5 has a painfully slow and protracted tutorial dungeon, but it ended up loving the game.

I was going to curse the PS4 Media player but it is actually very good. It wasn't initially working because it doesn't recognise any files unless you put them in a folder. Not tried its subtitles capabilities yet though.
