A quickie which I hope one of you regular's in the PS4 topic can answer but I believe my PS3 may be on it's last legs and I may

have to move on and start using the PSNow Subscription service.

 

If I do go down that route I presume game saves are made on the PS4 if I start playing something like Yakuza 4 or 5?

 

Does the PS4 record video of the PS3 game using the share function?

 

If anyone can answer these two questions would be grateful!

 

I can answer your first question - no, the saves are on the PS3 that you are connected to.  I'm have no details of the infrastructure (I have no interest either), but you're clearly connecting to a remote (probably virtual) PS3 and your game saves are there.

 

I never actually tried recording video, so I can't answer your next question.  Anything I say on that point would be a pure guess.

 

I will say one thing though, and that's that with a decent internet connection the service does work remarkably well.  I'm very cynical about anything remote that needs to be responsive (I'm even fussy about wireless controller latency), but the quality of this service made me eat a lot of my words.  However, the game selection is sh*t.  They are regularly increasing it but it had almost nothing in there that I wanted to play.

 

Just make sure that you're happy with the content before you sign up for it, or give it a month and see if you go "meh" like I did.  Hopefully not - I hope you find it awesome and it gives you everything you're looking for :)

 

 

Thank you for your detailed answer.

 

I have already checked the list of games available for PSNow and it already includes the main games that I would still want to play on my PS3 which are almost

all the Sonic games released on PS3 and two Yakuza games, Yakuza 4 and Yakuza 5 so it's all good.

 

I actually need the space as the Ps3 is on my second TV in the living room and I recently won an Xbox One X console with McDonald's Monopoly, still having to

pinch myself about that since it's the first time I've ever won anything like that so it seems a good but sad time to retire the PS3, that said I will probably get some

money back from selling the games or exchanging them for something else I want.

Beyond: Two Souls and Rayman Legends are the free games of May.

 

I always wanted to play Beyond but never got around to it, so this is pretty handy for me.

I don't say this lightly.  It's one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had.

 

I'm thrilled it's free because I'm sure there are a lot of fans out there that just don't know it yet.

Speaking of Beyond, anyone played the Detroit demo yet? I thought it was really well done, but I reached my desired outcome with ease. The final scene was great but.. it was predictable. I knew exactly what to do to reach my desired ending.

Haven't played the demo but might have to download it soon. Detroit will be a buy at some point.

 

Much prefer Heavy Rain over Beyond. I keep meaning to clear up 3 or 4 more trophies I have left for the latter.

God of War spoiler:

I felt as if I had a line of cocaine once I turned off my console.

I just finished the game, also triggered the hidden final cutscene. What a phenomenal journey. Now I want to finish everything I have left to do but I have no idea where to start.

So after searching and searching, I finally found this thing in stock (and in normal price). It apparently has becoming very rare in my place and I was very lucky to be able to find one.

Spoiler


This is called Hori Wired Controller Light. It turned out that the one I bought was a Japanese imported product as can be seen from the packaging design and manual sheet.

Spoiler


This is the definitive shaved-up PS4 controller; it's wired, no light bar, no touch pad (replaced with touch pad simulation), no extension port, no earphone jack, no speaker, no gyro sensor, and no vibration. The result is very light-weight.

The body is matte in the front and glossy in the back (at least from this white version), the right and shoulder buttons are glossy, the D-pad is textured, concave, and all directions are connected into one chunk, the analogs are also concaved, textured plastic, and the rest (Options, Share, fake touch pad, touch pad sim) are rubber.

This controller introduces a touch pad simulation just in case. You need to press the 'TP' button just under in-between the analog sticks to activate the Touch Pad system and simulate the touch with the analog sticks.

Spoiler


This controller is lacking the pressure-sensitive L2-R2. So this can affect your driving performance in games. You still can 'airy' press them, but the result will be unstable because the button is meant to be fully pressed.

The so-called fake Touch Pad button is present to serve as an additional control button. Although it only work as a single button. The original Dualshock 4 Touch Pad serves as 2 buttons. So unless I'm missing something, I think this controller is crippled if the game has left, right Touch Pad, and Options buttons assigned into 3 different commands.

The S/T/O/X buttons are larger than Vita's while the D-pad is somewhat the same size.

Spoiler


This is an official PlayStation licensed product and that means plugging it to PC and Microsoft will still be cheeky enough to switch the analog direction upside-down. So yeah, sadly you will still need third party DS4 controller app when you wanna use it properly on PC.

That's all. I believe the price originally is around USD30. It's cute, it's light-weight and sturdy. It excludes almost every single DS4 bloatwares and I'm quite sure it's well compatible with recent games that pretty much only use the essential buttons (which is I also think why Hori decided to drop everything else). I think it's just crazy how the Dualshock 4 can be reduced into this size and price. I tested this with Far Cry 5, Ghost Recon Wildlands, and Driveclub for a bit and apart from still being unfamiliar with the sizing, everything works just right.

I think Sony should follow Hori's example and make Dualshock 4 Slim that keeps the size, but remove the cost-bloating hardware.

I'm two trophies away from platinuming GoW. I need to find the remaining treasure spots and round up Niflheim. I admit, Niflheim is a massive grind so I switched to easy mode. I absolutely loved Muspelheim though and collecting all of the collectibles.

I'm not sure if I should play my next playthrough on Give me God of War or play it on normal/hard.

Just how hard is the hardest difficulty? I want to wait for photomode and have a good time taking pics too. If it's just one big frustration, I think I'll play on something easier.

I've heard that the GoW difficulty is pretty rough. Not my played it my self, but I've seen it likened to a new game plus mode but without the benefit of starting with good gear and skills. There's people who've soldiered through it though so it's not impossible or anything.

Yeah, also the thing that scares me a little is how you can't switch back to an easier difficulty later on. I think I'll leave it for the 3rd playthrough.

I want to replay the game mainly for the story and photomode once it's there, then give it a long break and replay it for the challenge.

There's a mindblowing, strongly hinted theory that

and I want to take one more look at those hints myself. Plus, it's simply an amazing story and an amazing game and I simply want to replay it right away once I 100%ed it.

There's some great story theories floating about yea, really looking forward to how they play those out. 

 

Spoiler

 

I need to get round to finishing of the last Valkyrie at some point as well, I might do Nilfheim but yea, it is pretty grindy. Really hoping they do some DLC for it, even if it's like Horizon and it's one expansion and done, they could base it on exploring one of the other realms or something like that.

Frustrated Amazon customers can't buy certain video games — and nobody knows why

 

  • Games published by Sony Interactive Entertainment are no longer available for preorder on Amazon. That includes many anticipated exclusives for Playstation 4.
  • Customers noticed the change in April, around the time that "God of War" was released.
  • Amazon usually courts gamers with perks like 20% off preorder titles for Prime members.
  • Nobody — not even Amazon customer service — seems to know what's going on.

GameInformer sat down with some Sony Bend devs and played through the first hour of (pre-beta) Days Gone: http://www.gameinfor...-days-gone.aspx

 

Haven't been particularly blown away by anything I've seen of this game so far but it still looks like it could be a decent bit of fun. 

 

Also, the fact they're having such a big blowout for the game a month before E3 makes me think it's not gonna be a big focus for them at their E3 conference? Ghost of Tsushima to close the show maybe?
