Wouldn't more than 8 be mayhem?!

I remember it being quite chaotic with 6 people doing Destiny raids. Having 16 would just be constant noise!

What would be nice (though i'd probably regret it with all the sour & negative idiots out there), is a feature to toggle in-game chat to be heard from within party chat - not have to pick 1 or the other.
So if you're in party chat, but the random in your squad wants some heals... he's requesting over mic in-game but you can't hear it.
Not saying you need to be able to speak back to them...

New 7.00 update allows system-level HDR calibration in the Sound & Screen settings. Probably best to set it up properly. Red Dead 2's HDR looks better to me since doing it but could be placebo.

Very happy with the HDR setup.

I also thought bl3 colours looked better after doing it , wasn't sure if placebo or not. But I have played bl3 Ankit and know the colour of my shoes when sliding ! They are much nicer now lol

Interesting info about the new HDR setup and how its part of a wider price of work to standardise and improve. Really awesome actually since same games are rubbish or had rubbish / no configuration.

But it turns out that our current perceived improvements mighht be placebo afterall

Festive emails from Sony going around with a free theme and a bonus (random) discount code. I scored 10% off.

But.... some useful info shared on Whirlpool says
If you download the email to file (.eml) and open that in Chrome (doesn't seem to work in Firefox) you can see the 10, 20 and 30% discount codes and they all work & on already discount items too!!!

Tested... time to fill that digital stocking.

No email here - but they did something similar last year and I didn't get one then. Had to "borrow" one from Mix  :o

Yeah I never get the discount codes. I wonder if they only send it to low spenders on the PSN Store?

Yeah this is the first time i've gotten a discount code also.

I always thought they gave it to the people who didn't spend to entice them, but I've spent a reasonable amount over the past year (not a lot, but still enough to not be seen as a scrooge on the store)

Any who, i'll use the most valuable code from my email. After that, any lesser value code will be up for grabs if they still work. Will post back.

Yeah, you'll need to be signed up to their marketing emails.

Spaz thinks this will be something integrated in the DS5 and they are getting this out now so DS4's aren't obsolete on launch.

Said I'd post them but totally forgot.
Here are my discount codes from Sony's festive email.

Single use I guess... don't know if they are account specific (if Sony does that)
Email says expires 20th (though a 2nd email said 19th) so  \_(ツ)_/

10%  DDTGG3RJDP
20%  GEPGCJ5N56

Quick review of the DS4 Back Button Attachment - buy it. It's only $50 and pretty awesome.


After hammering it in battlefield all night I think I'm getting used to it. Basically had to reprogram 7 years of DS4 usage in my brain - I also have to hold it slightly differently so I don't accidentally press the buttons.

Being able to heal and reload without taking my thumbs off the sticks is a game changer. In fact, I now want 4 buttons please PS5...

The build quality feels good. It fits perfectly on the DS4. Doesn't add much weight. Can program any button to it and save 3 different configurations. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy to slide on and off the DS4, meaning if you swap between 2 controllers regularly you will get away with just 1 attachment (it gets its power from the DS4 not its own battery).

I really can't fault it, especially at this price point.

Nice.....I am on the fence - buy or just wait for ps5

I play finger gymnastics on ds4 to move character at the same time as using d-pad.

Yep I know what that's like...move right hand, stretch right thumb to left joystick, push up and use left thumb on dpad.  This doesn't solve all problems (hence why I hope PS5 has 4 back buttons) but it certainly helps a lot.

Word in the street is DS4 will be compatible with PS5 , hence why they released this so late in the lifecycle, so it might not be a total waste

Absolutely agree 100%.

Feels natural to me after years of using my razer raiju controller which is now on its way out, for $49, a fifth of the price of most "pro" controllers, this thing is great

I'm not even trolling when I say that CoD Warzone just broke my PS4. Hard crash , had to unplug power, and then no more PS4. Not even safe mode.
Have confirmed the hdd for fried because I found an old 500gb one that I can boot into safe mode with.

So my actual question is, recommendations for stores to buy a new HDD from? My go-to (umart) has fuck all, and so do most of the other places I have checked. Getting a bit desperate...need a new one asap

2tb is a must
