Title: Sony Console Chat

For all things PS, PS2, PS3, Vita, PSP and PS4 (did I get them all?)

PS3/PSN question. I am think about replacing my dodgy PS3 with a new one (not the new extra slim), what's the go with activated PS3s?

my account says there is 5, and I can only think it was back when I played blops and shared a map pack with homer Missy, Kayls and someone else. What happens if I deactivate those other PS3s?
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Pat on January 02, 2013, 06:18:42 PM
They will lose access to the map pack, if you upgrade you will not get an option though as it won't let you activate any more than two now even though old shares can still be shared five times, you will need to de-activate them to activate your new one.

The PS3 that I used when we shared Sgt is gone. So no issues from my end.

Hmm, pretty sure no one plays blops1 any more.

thanks homer. I think CAD might have been the other person.

Kayls..do you still play blops1? if not, are you happy for me to deactivate your PS3?

Just noticed the 12GB on my new super slim is almost gone.  Guess it is off to JB to buy a drive cradle ($12) and then decide what to put into it.

can the new slim still have the 12gb storage and then another hdd added for extra storage on top of 12gb?

Sarge is correct. When you add a new HDD the 12gb vanishes. It'a a mystery! From what I noticed the 12gb drive is no faster so I don't see the point of it.

Ahh yes but the console is almost unusable with just the 4gb drive. If you want HD graphics on BF3 for example the 4gb drive won't allow it. PS3 will but doesn't need to because of the blu-ray.  8)

Are we going to need a Sony XBox trolling thread?  I am still coming to grips with what XBox Live gives you other than paying to play online and crippling some of the functionality of the XBox without it (sucks), but I have to say they do some stuff well as well.  And yeah 4GB is just so you can spread the payments across system and hard drive... dont see the point in it myself.

12GB is not much better on the PS3 though.  I have almost nothing installed, one downloaded game and the damn thing has 1.2GB free.  Think I will grab a 120GB SSD next time I see one at a reasonable price and chuck that in (or buy a 240GB for this system and swap).
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat

This doesn't worry me too much as I'm buying more and more content from the PSN as I go and I don't trade games.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: spazmanaught on January 04, 2013, 08:18:14 AM
mmmm this is a curious one? Unless Sony make it clear you never own the product I don't know how they can do this? It's like saying you are renting the product from them and can never on sell it. Not sure how each countries consumer laws will deal with it but it will be interesting.

I'm the same as Aro. I've traded about 3 games over PS1, 2 and 3 so I couldn't care. Although I sometimes buy pre-owned games which are hard to find.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: SgtEeyore on January 04, 2013, 08:31:53 AM
surely they'll add something to download from PSN like the online pass to make the game transferrable (but they'll make it more expensive so they get a bigger cut, since that's what it's all about)
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Pat on January 04, 2013, 09:41:03 AM
I think the same thing Sarge, I like the comments on the article...... so many saying they'll jump ship to MS and Nintendo but they don't realise that all of the companies will have similar deals.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Ant on January 04, 2013, 09:45:40 AM
This sort of thing has been around in software for a while and is one of the reasons why most software has a license agreement.  Technically you don't purchase the software, you purchase a licence to use the software and often that licence is not transferable.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Pat on January 04, 2013, 09:49:47 AM
And it probably does already say that in Sony's T&C if any of us bothered to read it.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: spazmanaught on January 04, 2013, 09:56:29 AM
The only game from memory that has any T&C's I can recall is BF3 for Origin on PS3. If anyone is near a game case can they have a quick look and see what the fine print says. I'd be surprised if it said anything more than don't copy it. Saying you don't own it or are licensing it may be in the super fine invisible ink  :P
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Pat on January 04, 2013, 10:15:04 AM
I mean the T&C's that we get with every PSN update, I have never read them.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Ant on January 04, 2013, 10:17:21 AM
I imagine they would have to be with each individual title so, as spaz said, I can't recall much there.  Let's see if that changes as well.

So is JB and EB breaking the law by trading in these? And I'm unsure how law works but if I buy a car then re-sell it Holden don't get anything? Apple lost the digital distribution case recently as well which is similar to this. I will be intrigued how this plays out  :)   Good thread this one!

I have some fuzzy memory about someone trying to enforce those licenses long ago.  It is more about how a person can't be held to a contract they may not have read and, in softwares case, was inside the box anyway.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Pat on January 04, 2013, 06:05:45 PM
JB and EB might have originally received permission for PS3 games Spaz, when the PS4 is released I think there will be an outcry for about five minutes then everyone will settle down and buy PS4 games the same as they buy PS3 games now :)

It is a top loader now, with a sliding cover.  More of a dust trap than the old one.  I have heard people say it is noisy, but mine runs quieter than my old phat PS3.  Other than that, nothing really seems any different.  Top loader does mean it is harder to put on a shelf in a tv cabinet.

I doubt it.  Check who provides the warranty.  Sony or DSE or a third party although none of them will probably honour it in another country.

Its a 3rd party that DSE use, i will call them on Monday and find out. My assumption DSE in NZ and AU operate under the same banner thus same warranty but will find out on Monday.

the fact that people are still buying tech from 12 years ago and they are still making games for it is quite amazing.
And the games are still fun.
My brother still runs a ps2 with his son and they always buy games for it, cause they are only 50c.

I reckon if they announce at E3, or earlier than it would have to be a 2013 release.  They probably have about 12 months from announcement (I am being generous) for anything innovative in the new system to be cool and funky and unique.

I have seen this mentioned before re the possible PS4:

Quote
Sources close to the hardware have revealed to us that PS4 will ship with a redesigned controller which is the same size as an existing DualShock but features a small touchpad in place of the existing Select, Start and PS buttons. The tech is based on Vita’s rear touchpad, and is similarly responsive in use.

But not this

Quote
A new Share button on the controller will, when pressed, launch a new feature that will allow screenshots and video to be distributed online. The PS4 hardware will continually record the most recent 15 minutes of onscreen action (with no processing penalty, claims our source), which users will then be able to edit and broadcast via the Internet.

sharing idea seems cool. but to do that without penalty would mean they limit the game to the a certain number of cores in the physical CPU. either way, i like it.

Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: StoneColdHomer on February 07, 2013, 02:10:48 PM
I would say about $500.

If you compare the current models out in the US and Oz, and compare the price differences, it's about 22%.

So a $400USD machine should, in theory, cost us $488.

They would be crazy to price it much higher as the uptake would be slower (just like the PS3 when it first came out), and they really need to kick this things off with a bang to get the jump over Microsoft. Loss lead on the hardware and make the $$ on the software.

I know, I know,  gamers will be gamers, and where there is a will there is a way.  ;D, but mum's and dad's at Xmas might be hesitant if the price is too high given the current position of a lot of people financially.

My first PS3 was the MG4 version bundle. Had $600 in westfield vouchers and traded the PS2 and about 10 games. Paid $0 for it in the end. I think it was $699??

I bought a ps2 at launch and that ran me up to about 900 with a few games and mem card ( btw the dvd drive is borked on that now), I also bought my PS3 right after MGS4 came out ( there was no way i was paying 1k for it). I went around to heaps of stores and everyone was completely sold out of MGS4 bundles and even standard ps3 sku's were sold out at the time. I can't remember what i paid but it was around the 600-700 mark with a remote and blu rays thrown in the deal. I gave that PS3 to my sis and it's still works fine.

I will probably buy the new PS4 day one, My guess on price is at least $600 for a no frills standard SKU
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat

I think backwards compatibility is all but gone if they are designing the PS4 games PC based. I doubt they will waste resources on a cell type emulator to make them work. Especially since the PS2 only recently stop being built. I'm sure the PS3 will have a similar life.

I'm not sure it will be unless it's coming out in the middle of the year. If they announce it for Nov for example won't that hurt PS3 units and games sales until then? But maybe they have wind of M$ new Xbox and have to get the market first?

Don't think it will Spaz.

If you use the PS3 and PS2 as a base, the PS2 sales increased after the PS3 was announced and released. This would mainly be due the the size of the game library. Hell, PS2 even outsold the PS3 for years after release.

The only thing I can think of that would cause a slowdown in the PS3 sales would be backwards compatibility and a really cheap price on the PS4 - but that isn't going to happen.

I had this exact same question yesterday. Was playing Blops 2 alot with WP but most of WpR plays PC lately, so not much to join in on.

yeah, i just dont like getting into a game as well that was launched a couple of months ago as i feel i need a lot of catching up to do and i dont have too much time to do that so ill feel disadvantaged.

also i hate all this cod elite and bf premium stuff.

ill wait and see what is coming this 21st from sonys event, i might just play some SP and bring down my shelf of shame before the new console is out.. save me some cash to put towards the new console.

got a couple of pc games that iwll keep me busy too and i have starcraft 2 expansion 1 preordered for next month.

As Pat said in the rcb, bring on the PS4. Had Black Ops 2 freeze on me today, it seems to happen when just loading up the game, real frustrating. Once PS4 arrives, I sure hope developers take more interest in the console and optimise it properly.

BF3 premium and COD   Elite are just expansion packs that you have the option of paying for up front to get a discount. You can get them separately.

How is this any different to your Starcraft 2 expansion you have pre ordered Jon?

yeah saw that this morning too. i dont know if its just me but looks like a ps4 might likely be revealed this coming week.

oh also looks like an audio port at the bottom of the controller.. doesnt look too bad from this angle as well.

not so much different but i guess it also makes me not wanting to jump in because i havent been there since launch and i have a lot of catching up to do. plus this fps games get old very quick and a new version is out sooner or later.. i wont be coming back to it a year or two later or even 5 years later to play as there are newer and better cod games out.

starcraft on the other hand will just have the 3 games 1 storyline for each race and also new multiplayer units and content on each release. basically a full new game with a few more tweaks/features/content for sp and mp.

is the elite/premium stuff just new maps, weapons and vehicles? is there any new single player content and other new features added that wasnt out on release? honest question not trolling as i havent looked into this elite/premium stuff in depth.

There is a well documented fault where it bombs out at 70% of rebuilding the hard disk (after format and copy).  After trying about three times I figured I would do a web search.  The fix is pretty simple, go into safe mode (which isn't that simple ;)) and change storage from flash to hard drive.  Probably why it wasn't an issue for you as you don't have flash storage.  It now recognises the drive and seems to work ok.

Ok so I agree with all of you, ps4 is going to be announced and makes me very excited!! do you guys think that's the reason why GTAV has been delayed? maybe a last minute agreement with SONY? ( altho it has always been more on the Microsoft side) also I have the feeling that's the reason why battlefield 4 has been a bit dead these days, I would have expected a teaser by now and I think they are all holding their games for the ps4 to be announced so they can add the new flashy logo on their trailers and merchandise.

Specs and dev kits for new consoles are out and about well in advance, to give devs the chance to develop and ports games over to them (development cycles are years....)
Generally the dev kits obviously change as the release gets closer and hardware is finalised, but devs have an idea of what specs to develop for.
The good thing about console games is, given the equivalent PC hardware, the console game would run better (if the devs do a good job) since they know exactly what they are developing for

yeah im expecting that too. i so hope all the flaws in this gen are fixed for next gen. sony seriously will need to have that party chat nailed or ill be disappointed.

im looking forward to what type of social features the new consoles will have.. i hope its just not some crappy twitter, facebook blah blah integration but something fresh or even how steam has "platform groups" so we can create our own WpR clan/group where we can have announcements and such posted there for everyone to see and also have some mobile companion apps.

Good idea there Jon, pass it onto Sony.
I reckon Party Chat would have been the top priority for a while for the next console, PSN Chat rooms work perfect and can't wait to use that cross-game.

Hopefully a similar XMB style too, I hope they don't go for the PS Vita look. Yes, something different from the current one but not Vita style.

since there has been steam integration on ps3, would love to even just have that integrated a little more with ps4 so we can utilise some of steams community features.

With valve bringing the steam box and some ps and steam games able to play together, this would be great.

Hate to say but I agree with stavros! Sarge is normally correct so I agree as well. I'll get a PS4 if it's like the Xbox in that you can play without the sub but if it's a all in deal then my last PS console has been purchased. Mind you I sub now with Plus?

I think that this will just be an extension of PS+.

I won't replace Bluray disc's, but an add on service with the possible ability to play PS3 games on the new gen console, and also exclusives that won't be done via retail shops.

They may turn online gameplay into a pay per service model, like xbox, but I guess we will have to wait 24hrs to find out.

Quote
ate last week the Wall Street Journal reported that the PlayStation 4 will stream PS3 games. And while I’m sure that selling it as “backwards compatible” is partly the intent, it’s not really thinking big picture. Despite the fact that PS3 emulation on the rumored PS4 provides its own set of challenges due to the change in architecture, streaming over the web is likely in the favor of consumers: keeping hardware costs down since Sony won’t have to cram PS3 hardware into the PS4 — like they (initially) did with its predecessor. At the same time, it opens up PlayStation to a whole different idea since this “instant on” gaming works, for the most part, on the back end. Essentially, most consumer electronics with a screen that also happen to be connected to the internet could potentially become a PS3, PS2, and PS One. A ‘PlayStation’, that doesn’t need an actual PlayStation.

According to Michael Pachter, an industry analyst at Wedbush Securities, the PlayStation 3 could get a major price cut as early as this week. In an email interview with GamesIndustry International, Pachter indicated that the PS3 would drop to $199 by "February 21st." Even though Pachter's analysis may seem a little rash, it would be nice to see Sony's console fly off the shelves in its final days.

I think it's more important to see what they didn't announce. You know the bad things that they slip in when no-one is watching. Pay to play, used games, cloud costs, upgrade-ability  and most of importance is price. I'm tipping $599 US.

No chance. The current Xbox live system is a fail so unless they reduce the costs no way. The few things that people like ( which I don't care about anyway ) are about to become the norm. Sony has way too many exclusives to make me buy into the M$ world.

Quote
DUALSHOCK®4 features a light bar on the top with three color LEDs that illuminate
in various colors.   The light bar illuminates to match the color of characters in a game to offer
a simpler, more friendly way to identify players, even when playing side by side. The light bar
also changes patterns during gameplay to provide useful information to gamers, such as when
a character is critically low on health or has taken major damage.

I think the PS4 will do current PC quality eg particle effects and liquid movement etc but I agree with Raz the 30FPS is a little low. Mind you there is a reason for Vsync in PC gaming and that's to keep the quality at a good level. Perhaps this is there way of thinking?

According to Jack Tretton, the president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, in an interview with AllThingsD - the final design of the console is not complete.

I call B.S.

Quote
Why didn’t we see the new console today?
I guess when I think about the console, you open it up, you look at it, you certainly look at it when you insert a disc, but for most people, it’s behind a cabinet or on a shelf somewhere and you spend all your time looking at the screen. And we wanted to show people the screen. There will be multiple opportunities to share the look of the console between now and the launch. We just didn’t choose this first event as the time to show it.

But is it ready?
I mean, we’re certainly capable of showing playable game content, but we don’t have a mass-production box that we can bring out and pull out. That’s still in development in terms of final specs and design.

Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: spazmanaught on February 22, 2013, 10:35:43 AM
I think the specs was to get M$ to release there's and hopefully the look of the failbox. Remember how bad the white release failbox looked compared to the fatty PS3. Took M$ a little while to make the failbox look like the PS3 and even copy the touch button approach which Sony went away from.

O.T I still remember a mate of mine who only has M$ consoles telling me how good his ' new ' replacement RROD Xbox is because the buttons aren't buttons you just go over them ........ he didn't believe me when I said PS3 has had that since day 1 and it's not a big deal.

i just love the design the of new controller.. looks slick.. great that i wont need to buy some cheap triggers that break easily and it looks like the long parts of the controller where you hold your grip has some extra rubber looking grip. If its all over the back, its probably because they will make you hold the controller in an awkward way to for the touch areas as it even wraps around the top part of the controller.

I wonder if the touch area is like a clickable trackpad with a left and right click which can probably even be start and select.

aww thats a pity. on the options button but hey i didnt use those buttons too often anyway so its alright.

i guess making it click could be a problem, you dont need to have it actually click to work and multitouch and tap gestures should be fine.

My guess is they haven't done the final design for the case.  Hell they could still be finalising components which will help determine the shape/size/heat requirements etc.  The rig they used for the demoes was probably a bunch of boards strung together in an open chassis of some sort  (maybe they had to hide the ROG motherboard that was holding it all :P).

If they get the price point right this will sell.  For all the non-pc gamers (how many of us were in that space?), it will give them mid to high range level pc graphics in a box that you can buy off the shelf and plug into the tv.  I will probably end up buying one and then second guessing myself about whether I should have done that or just built a PC for the lounge room.

I am hoping that KZ4 has MP as good as KZ2 and we can finally get the clan playing together again as we seem to have become very fragmented in our game play since BC2 days!

The thing that will bug me about that is when they start releasing PS3 games I own on the PSN PS4 store but remastered etc. Pay again for what you own.

I will only get the ones that are offered free with Plus.

I wished they didn't muk about with the controller. I don't use additional flippers as it makes the controller too big for me :(

I bought those add on flippers for the ps3 and thought the same....they really were not comfortable for me.

The new flippers only look a tad longert and flatten out and than the old L2,R2 buttons. They do not appear to have that raised/elevated look to them that the addons had ....they should be fine imo...

"In addition to the PlayStation 4 explanation, Taylor hinted at big news on the horizon for gamers with AMD hardware. Could the company possibly be retaliating against Nvidia's Project Shield? We'll find out next month when AMD reveals its big surprise at the Game Developers Conference."

!?!?!?

Still dont get why it is needed.

I personally dont want to be hearing people in other games I am not playing MP etc in. Do any of you mumble users actually go into the same room if you are playing different games? I would find it distracting.

Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Ant on February 26, 2013, 11:05:38 AM
What it does mean is that you can setup a discussion and be chatting while you get into the game, find servers, find matches etc.  So not necessarily "cross game" but "pre/post-game"

yeah i think it is needed, even for the purposes of setting up a game.

i hate how we have had clan nights in the past and havent been able to talk to each other, but have had to use the stupid chat console thingy.

plus when playing battlefield, and only have squads of 4, its still god to be able to talk to the whole group.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: kunfushun on February 26, 2013, 11:20:47 AM
there are some benefits of its use, i wasnt eager about it too but for things like mention 4 player locked squads, you can have squad leaders in a room so they can communicate with each other.

and people can cheat by having spectators telling the ingame people where people are lol. they need to somehow block this from happening. since they are adding spectating in ps4.

Which, at least, leads to a consistent chat experience across all titles and you know that chat will be available.  Depending on the programming hooks available you should still be able to setup squad, team and proximity type chats but don't have to worry about the underlying mechanics of supporting VoIP.  If Sony do this well I can only see it being a positive thing.

Coming from PC gaming which had cross game chat via Teamspeak/Ventrillo I found it handy...especially when you weren't sure what game to play and there are a few clan members online playing different games...You could chat with your clan mates without firing up the game and get an idea of how the gaming was on that particular night and decide which game to play from chatting...

The way we had it set up though was one game per channel...Not everyone in the one channel playing different games..Hope it's like this on PS4 where you can select a channel and a bunch of your friends could join that channel..

After using it with Callfire on the xbox to set up games I can vouch that cross game chat is excellent, I would never use it for chatting when in different games but when in the same game it is good, remember the VoIP in the MoH lobby and in Borderlands? This is a really positive thing.

What's the minimum HDD space do you think they'll offer? I reckon 250gig as a minimum.

Hopefully they allow us to swap them out as easily just like the ps3. I see 1tb drives are only 90ish bucks and that'll do nicely in a new machine ;)

i reckon they'll still do a 120, with 250 and 500 as options. I'd like to think that when you login to PSN, they actually detect the HDD size, then they could go a global mean value from there and offer some usable space. I dont think they'll offer 1TB.

with USB3 coming, I hope they support games on external drives.

PS+ failed one night because it filled up the "drive" when it only had the 12GB in it.  I think it had one downloaded game on it.

The silly thing is that the muppets that it is targeted at (cheap, entry level console) are probably not going to have the skills necessary to upgrade the drive themselves and will end up paying stupid money to get someone to do it for them.

250GB isn't going to be big enough if the games are all 1080p, I nearly filled my 320 and the others have filled much bigger than that and the games only run at 720p, and you can pay me to do the upgrade for you Muppet :D

Yep, they relaxed it in Nov / Dec last year.

Previously the PS3 was banned because they were deemed Super Computers by the government (which the general public are banned from owning)

This ban has been the excuse for the black market / pirated games industry in China (or so they say)

Still an expensive component, even if you allow for a LOT of markup!

For us Neville's. I'm sure when Sony go and ask for 1 million up front then 2 million ( or 16 ) per year the price drops pretty quick. I'm thinking a 60gb flash drive for system and stuff etc and a 500 or 1tb storage drive might be the way they go.

Yeah, but they are also always looking for the cheapest acceptable components and most console owners will tolerate load speeds from a HDD so why spend the extra?  Even a few cents saving can equate to millions over a products lifetime.

That is crap - not everyone has internet on all the time or can keep a stable connection.

I mean you can only share once anyway! It just means you only buy one and wait for one to finish the game.

The things that would really shit me with this are:
  • Only play on one activated PS3 in a 24 hour period.  I often start a game in the lounge room and then, when Wendy wants the TV, chuck the save on a USB and change rooms;
  • Only one account on the PS3.  David does not have a PSN account (well he does have a sub account) and all our titles are bought through my account.

ditto - we have three PS3.

Foxtel is on my tele which means I can't then jump on Spaz's PS3 or the one upstairs if he wants to watch Foxtel.

Physx is easy to run on AMD slayer. Unless it's hardware dependent you can run anything on either. I think Barnz got the AMD exclusive tessla to work fine on his 670. Physx and tessla are the novelty things these companies do to sell gpu's.

One of the most requested features for PlayStation owners who use the SEN web store has been the ability to have content purchased via the webstore be automatically downloaded on their PlayStation 3. We now have a date for when this feature is going live thanks to firmware 4.40 patch notes.

Starting this May in Europe purchases from the webstore will be automatically downloaded to your PS3 if it is connected to the internet.

Maybe they are saying that the moment you purchase on the webstore, you would have the option to start the download straight away (if the PS3 is connected to the net), or have it scheduled (like the PS+ feature). This would be good if you bought a game during the day at work ( ::)), set it to download  and it will be ready to go when you arrive home.

Guess we will find out in May.

Pretty sure that is true as i recall reading about it a little while ago. That news story (or at least its title) is a bit meh though.

Basically what it was actually about is Sony saying they were happy to distribute Alpha and Beta versions of games (similar to how Steam does it).

I for one am happy about this. I dont care about Alpha/Beta , but Sony is bending over backwards to be good to developers after the past 8 years of having a 'hard to develop for' console. And, with all the news stories i've been reading, the developer feedback on Sony/PS4 has been great.

Im looking forward to a well supported console

Interesting.  Definitely not the same render though, really obvious with the mountains at the end.  You would need to know what settings they were both on for it to be any sort of real comparison.  Having said that, the PS4 stuff does look good...

lol looks to me like the PC was on low settings with no anti-Aliasing. While the PS4 looks good until we see actual game footage I don't really care about CGI renders.

That isnt a CGI render. It is a real time tech demo of their engine
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: spazmanaught on April 03, 2013, 04:02:41 PM
Real time? Are they recording it somewhere live? Looks like your standard benchmarking clip ( which I call CGI ) to test performance.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: raz81 on April 03, 2013, 04:05:29 PM
I think you have your definitions confused :p

CGI = prerendered. ie, cant be altered or changed....it's a movie

real time = in game. while these demos are "on rails" they are rendered in real time by the hardware/software. if you took over the mouse, you could fly around in that world.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: Ant on April 03, 2013, 04:33:22 PM
CGI = Computer Generated Imagery... so technically, it is all CGI!!

With that image, you can't tell if you are in an open world or not, so you may not be able to "fly around in the world".  There are lots of tricks you could use to make it look better.  Limit draw depth, pre-render textures, modified lighting etc.  There were definitely some issues with the PC side of that render which looked like it was done at rather low settings.

I am sure the graphics are going to be fantastic on the PS4, and may even be (b)leading edge... for about a week until PC's take over again.  Looking good is important (I prefer BF3 on PC over BF3 on PS3) but gameplay is just as important.  It sounds like they are doing some pretty cool stuff to make the controllers more responsive which is good and the eye stuff looks cool but I wont be selling my PC just yet. 

I have bought more PC titles this year purely because they are more affordable.  The bonus is that, most of them, look better on PC as well.  I can't see this changing for the foreseeable future unless Sony open up the marketplace and allow competition at the download level.

Get ready for next-gen, as it’s coming later this year: the Sony PlayStation 4 is set to drop in October and according to a new report, it looks like you can snap one up for £300. How’s that sound for a slice of gaming goodness?
300.00 GBP   =   434.345 AUD

that's the app itself on a fresh install. but when you start creating playlists it takes up space in game data and looks to save the clip to the PS3??? i added 4 videos and it used 128MB.

I went back to XMB with mine.

I also left the download go (not paused) and turned the PS3 off for the night. When it did the Auto sync thing with PS+, the PS3 stayed on and completed the download during offpeak times (for me anyway).

Like Raz said - total win. All I would like to see now is the option to remote turn the PS3 on and download while I'm at work.

I agree with what he said, if the nbn is throttled the ones without it will suffer.

We pay $90 for 200 now fox, if I was only paying $50 I would probably baulk as well.

There was an update to the original source  that sounds reasonably concrete

Quote
UPDATE: Sony has confirmed our exclusive report about Vita Remote Play and PlayStation 4 games.

"Yes, it's true unless the game requires specific hardware like the camera," Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida wrote on Twitter in response to a question from a follower. "It will be great to play PS4 games on PS Vita."

I shat myself when I first saw your quote Jon. I read that as meaning all PS4 players had to also have a vita.  :o

But it mandatory for the DEVELOPERS to have the vita remote play support in the games.

Killzone merc is what im excited about later this year.

She handheld is great and from news i read, it seems to br picking up more devs now and not just indy devs.

For portable gaming, the nds just dominates this plus the cadual cheap games you get on yhe mobile market, its pretty hard to become big but i think its doing well and with the ps4 coming out, it might pick up some more as it seems to have already since the ps4 announcement.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat

That's why I am looking forward to the long awaited remote play, the Vita was a drunken purchase but I don't regret it and it does get limited use.

EDIT: And I take your comment as bagging the buyers Spaz, I knew it was a Spazism :)

I had one for about 12 months and then it was never used. I have even less time now - between work and kids. It's a wonder sometimes that the PS3 even gets turned on.

Hell, I don't even have time to play Angry Birds on my phone  ;D

Not really actually. The Xbox version is a load of updates behind the PC version. PC has a huge update (1.6) coming within the next month or so which gives a bunch of new features which I don't see PS getting if it is ported over. Mind you the Xbox version had to start from scratch and it's not a pretty sight.

That's my thought :)

So, just to be clear. I am not purposfully trolling xbox and then painting ps4 in some golden light. I cant help it that over the past few days / weeks, the general gaming websites i frequent just have non gaming related stories for the xbox, while the ps4 is plugging along at a steady pace talking about games and only games.

Here is a dev interview about drive club. I havent listened to it, but i have skipped through to view the actual gameplay bits. it looks great.

Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: raz81 on June 11, 2013, 02:46:20 PM
I thought the camera was bundled in since the controllers all (can) take advantage of it.

At least this means that every game isnt going to have shit features for it.

Also means that PS4 is probably the same price as the Xbone if you want the 'full experience'

PS4 peripherals include the stand-alone Wireless Controller for PlayStation®4

ill pass on the the shield.

pc games i play on the pc i dont need to have it on a portable device.

the vita i dont mind as it has some native games that are decent and that i can play on the train or something.

are there any decent android games that will play on the shield well? the only worth while games are the ones you are stream off the pc which right now because of our data, speeds and limited quota fails.

Granted, the Vita has more "blockbuster" titles, but the Shield will have a tonne of games

Yeah the indy games from steam would be great on a portable but i think the vita are getting a heap pf them now. And since im with plus, there has been a few on there.

I have limbo on steam but never touched it. Now i do on my vita.

With their free self publish thingo for devs i think the vira or psn in general will be getting a heap of them. Not to mention xbone failure it looks like ps is the console everyone wants atm.

Luckily it is actually more broad then that. But it does seem to only apply to F2P games

Quote
Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida stated that, while most online games will require a PS Plus subscription, F2P games will not, and the decision will be up to each game’s publisher:

“As far as free-to-play games are concerned, it’s the publisher’s decision whether they put it inside or outside of PS Plus.”

I think its great that there will be a handful of games that basically dont cost anything, and allow multi.

What I like about it is they will be able to make say BF4 free to play when BF5 comes out for example in a year or so. Puts MP play in the reach of everyone. Another tick for Sony.

Yeah I have Barnz. $180 left to pay off.

It seems Sony (going by IGN video) are looking to charge between Free-To-Play, 99c up to $60 which usually is $100 in Australia.

Call of Duty and Destiny have their official prices for $98 though.

I've pre-ordered the console @ EB Games a while ago as I think there will be a shortage on release thanks to Microsoft  ;D. No games ordered as of yet. Will wait until closer to the release date and wait to see what the consensus of others here will be. And like Spaz, I may trade in a heap of my PS3 games at the time of pick up (but probably won't  ::)).

Probably was but I find sometimes when I get a trophy the game can freeze for a few seconds. So for me its a good thing. Used to laugh when it happened and I was hosting COD games. All the 12yr olds would cry thinking the host was about to migrate .......... then I'd pull the Ethernet about 5 mins later  ...... booyah boi!

I think I paid $60 for a 16GB card back in January, I have 7 games installed with 4.5GB free so if you are going to install lots of games you will need the 32 as a minimum.

Yeah definitely need 32gb as minimum. Dick Smith has 32gb cards for $99 so I priced matched at JB. When getting a Vita bundle with game and memory card ($258 + $99) it compares ok against an iPad mini 32gb which retails around $500. Having the free games via PS+ also helps with swallowing such a bitter pill.

Overall I'm really happy with my Vita purchase and can't wait for PS4 integration.

I bought at launch. Should have waited but the money I spent would of disappeared on othe crap. Still happy with it esp psplus stuff and that it looks like its doing ok now and more devs joining the vita fun since the ps4 announcement.

This. It specifically says you need to sign in to your account to play it. But basically, it means that whatever game you buy (digital or disk) can be taken to a friends place to play on their ps4

I get the feeling they are doing away with the game sharing. I think with digital DL's on PS3 only recently becoming more popular they can see the money they will lose. They could put in place a game share if the original acc isn't playing or something but it does seem like they are very quiet on it. I remember the E3 announcement saying ' disc based games ' can be shared/sold/lent as you wish. Nothing regarding digital.

Item #3, you can play any of your digital games on any PS4 system as long as you are signed in, which sounds like the end of game sharing but you can nominate a "Home" system in which all of your games are playable to anyone with a profile. This makes game sharing a little bit more annoying but you will be able to do it the same as you currently can on the Xbox360, for example Lara and I will need a profile on each others machines (as we do now) then I make her PS4 my home machine and she does the same with mine, all of my games should be playable by Lara on her machine as long as there is not a time limit between two profiles playing the one game.

i couldnt get private network working so ill need to look into why that wasnt working but the remote play via internet wasnt that bad, some delays but most of the time i was on it, it was working smooth without much delay at all when i push any of the buttons on my vita.

on another note.. ps store does not work on remote play! dammit! this use to work before the store was updated wasnt it?

Apparently this rumour came from the first dev kits which were only 4GB which is why Shadowfall was made using only 4GB but it now has 8GB, not sure how much the system will use though.

I've only got BF4 on order, that should keep me occupied for a while. I might end up getting KZ4, and I am definitely interested in The Division.

Not happy about the restrictions on recording via other recording devices. :(

This. Most places have finished Pre-orders for now (the first tranche of the release anyway).

I have pre-ordered KZ4 and BF4, along with a second controller.

I'll also be very surprised if they do any bundles since it appears that Sony has stopped pre-orders, if they do they will be snapped up as soon as they are announced.

Yeah but friends in electronics-retail means no need to pre-order thankfully. I might miss the first batch but the second should be sweet. I might even import it. Also since I don't want to trawl through pages on here - is it true that you need Playstation Plus to use Multiplayer online, like the stupid shit xBox users have to do?

I doubt it will go down.

Anyway, even if it if $100, it is still good value. All the games I have gotten off it this year alone has more than paid for the subscription price.

But remember they have specials on it occasionally, and on top of that, if you get the cheap PSN cards when they are on sale, that's an added bonus.

I think my last renewal was around $50 because of the above.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat

Fair enough, it's under $70 I think now right? Maybe I should just buy it..

Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: SgtEeyore on August 07, 2013, 04:53:27 PM
yep, i buy a $50 renewal every time they come out. a few of us a subbed to September 2014.

but like homer said, i'd pay $10/month and be happy with it considering the free games, even if they are 1-2 years old, i dont buy much, so it's all winning for me :)

psplus is renewed all the time with discounted vouchers. (thank you spaz).

all good on the by end of year. since its christmas and all, i might even get one early jan. i just hope i dont lose out on the hype of games that come out at launch as it seems to die down after a month or so till we wait for another new game.

Gamescom Details From Sony

On Tuesday 20th August – the evening before the doors open – we’ll be holding our regular Gamescom press conference, where we’ll be showcasing the future of all things PlayStation. The show will be packed with news on both announced and unannounced titles – suffice to say, you won’t want to miss it.

You’ll be able to watch the conference in full right here on PlayStation Blog, on our dedicated Gamescom page, or in PlayStation Home from 3.00am Wednesday 21st August AEST.

Shortly after the press conference, we’ll be holding a live panel discussion hosted by journalist and broadcaster Dan Maher, where some of the biggest names in PlayStation gaming, including Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida, Beyond: Two Souls director David Cage and Assassin’s Creed writer Darby McDevitt will be sitting down to discuss the role of narrative and storytelling in games.

There will be a replay of the press conference on YouTube asap after the stream closes.

RE controllers...i hope they are built a bit better. I have 3 busted controllers and they all have the same problem....R2 button is borked. I was really annoyed when it happened to the six axis controller as i prefer it over the ds3 and they are probably impossible to buy new these days.

I'll let you know about the online world after I download Killzone Mercenary but as far as the Vita goes I'm enjoying it, I have never been a big fan of hand held gaming but the games I have I do enjoy, Uncharted is good (and you know I don't say that lightly) and I'm looking forward to KZ, Uncharted and KZ....... do I really need to say more? :) I ordered KZ last night and it is the first game I have actually paid for as the rest have been free on Plus. At $199 it is one of the cheaper bits of tech we will buy.

pat, will and i will do some MP killzone merc runs when we get a chance. this game has gotten great reviews all round and now borderlands 2 is coming as well!

i would have preferred to pay the price it is now but i dont mind as i have had some fun playing with it on my train rides to work and i love that i can play these indy games as i have them on steam but i dont touch them. more likely i will pick up a portble to play these games. i am very excited that fez is coming to the vita as well! i was so sad that it was on the xbox only when it was released.

i hope the indy scene keeps going on the vita as ill be buying up a lot of indy games for this device. i know its cheaper on mobile devices but i am just not a phone/tablet gamer. i have never liked playing much games on there other than chess or suduku or what ever games similar.

MP on the go i guess is fine if you are at one place and not moving on a train or something as obviously youll get connection drops etc.

with remote play and ps4 finally working, i think ill be on my vita a lot, i hope that ill be able to play my ps3 psplus freebies one day through remote play, i just cbf sitting in one room playing on the console these days.

i think it is a good time to pick one up especially with the ps4 around the corner but if you think you wont play it too much until then, then it might be a good idea to hold out just a little longer and see if they do release anymore bundles and wait till the memory cards officially drop. 32GB me thinks is a must. i hope they release larger sizes as i want to put video on there too some time to time.

It's a great little device, and the amount of vita games on ps+ is what really wins it for me. But it really comes down to what you like to do in your downtime. I don't commute via train and I'm currently reading the Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones books) so my spare time hasn't been put towards the vita as much lately.

Ive never needed to buy a 2nd.

You've never worn out a controller?

Clearly not gaming enough. What do you do when it runs out of juice? Stop gaming?

Plug the cable in and keep on playing.


+1

I just bought a new cable actually, I think it's about 10 metres, arrived from China today. It frustrates me when the controller starts to flat while I'm playing FIFA in bed. It's like the PS3 is calling bed time, and I don't do well when others tell me what to do haha  :D

10m cable?  Too lazy to do the maths but I wonder what the voltage drop is over that.  It may not be healthy for your battery.

Hmm I didn't think there would be an issue, it's just a charging cable? Can you elaborate? Don't want to use it if it's detrimental to my controller's battery life.

Best reference I can find at the moment: http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1204825

It is a factor of the diameter of the wire and the distance.  I would say you are pushing it at 10m unless it is a very thick cable!

I learnt a lot about this stuff running christmas lights around the outside of the house as you end up having to do power injection at various stages along the light.  It is the reason I am debating between 5V and 12V lights for this year.

Nah, I just searched more. The USB Cable charging is a Micro USB (The one on the back) and the Dock Charger uses the peripheral slot to charge (The one on the front).

So really, the slot the Dock Charger uses is no problem.

5m should be fine.  It is the Mac in the usb spec but that involves data loss.

anyhoo one of the manual resets stuffed up the ps3's file system and it cannot be restored so i had to format and lost everything  :ninja:

I had to double check to make sure my monitor has HDCP ( for $700 i would hope so!!)

Turns out it does and i pulled out my amp and ripped out one of the older hdmi cables i have and tried that....worked straight away  :up:

The new hdmi i bought that wont work on the monitor works fine with the amp so yeah....weird!!!

When you buy an item on your smartphone/PC, your PS4 will wake up, download it and go back to sleep. Confirmed via twitter.

PS4 NEWS UPDATE: Your PlayStation 4 can be turned on while away from the console in order to download new content.

Responding to Twitter question about purchasing PS4 games from a smartphone, the loveable Shuhei Yoshida responded with, "When you buy a PS4 game on smartphone, it will wake your PS4 up to start downloading the game. PS4 goes back to sleep after that."

there are some decent games out now and kz merc this week but if you want to use it for ps4 stuff then might as well wait if you arnt in any rush.

I asked them to put aside the 32gb mem card (it is available for click and collect on their web site from this store) but they reckon they dont have any.

Apparently the PS4 controller works as a native USB controller on PC.

Quote
Not sure if news, but was confirmed to me by the Galak-Z dev on the show floor at PAX. The PS4 controller will work on PC natively via USB. It was not confirmed if it works via bluetooth, and the laptop it was running on had Windows 7. It was also not confirmed that the touchpad worked natively.
If the the touchpad could mapped to mouse movement on PC, this would be the ultimate gaming PC controller.
EDIT: Some clarification on how this was asked; Per this same dev, Galak-Z currently is not stable on the PS4. Thus they had PCs with DS4s on the show floor running the game. I asked if this implied the PS4 controller works on PC, which he said 'yes it works as a regular USB controller'.

http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/1lqo5z/the_ps4_controller_works_on_pc/

I think it would need to be confirmed after release but it would be good.

I really hope that new DS4 controller's touchpad could function as a mouse on PC's. It would make the lounge room gaming much easier not having to bring a KB/mouse along.

Also should have my Vita on Monday. I've gotta say i really like the fact you can que up downloads via the web store ( fwiw i have over 600 items listed). It's much quick going through my download list there finding all the Vita stuff than on the PS3. I assume you install the games to the ps3 and transfer them to the vita via usb?





Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: raz81 on September 07, 2013, 11:31:05 AM
You can queue them from your pc straight to the vita, avoiding the ps3 altogether.

Speaking of which, anyone know if the stuff I have installed on the vita mem card will work on another vita? Or do I need to re download? I'm going to dick smith later today to have a fight and hopefully get a replacement vita

Yeah, I was hoping I could do it from the sony website to a specific PS3 but no luck... so I just cancelled the downloads on one of them and let the other one do it.

Post by: kunfushun on September 09, 2013, 04:41:18 PM
other than better battery life (1hr extra) and the microUSB port for charging now and that my vita has 1 slight scratch at the back touchpad and also a slight chip near the top bottons becuase i keep taking my grip on and off then yeah. im still happy with mine :D

OLED, and more sleeker me thinks.

but dammit! yellow!!!

im seeing hearing different things, i think the 1gb is just a memory card and not built in.

also there is no yellow.. its lime green! lol fail me. so nothing too exciting then other than a 64gb memory card that i might consider later.

anyhoo first impressions on my Vita is the display is top quality, Memory card is effing tiny, starter kit came with 5-6 manuals lol....Screen protector has a couple of tiny bubbles and thats a bit annoying...looks like i'll have to try and reapply it.

I've updated killzone and will test that later. Now currently transferring all the vita downloads from the ps3 to the vita which btw the application that does this needed a 500mb update ( LOL ) Should take 1 hour to transfer about 15 games.

Almost ditto, except I have had several network dropouts upgrading KZ.  I think my router really needs replacing come payday this month.

I have only downloaded LBP, Uncharted Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush so far to the PS3.  Will transfer them after this update finally finishes.

Haha barnz I got a massive lol from the starter kit too. The manual for the screen protector was thicker then for the vita itself. Then there was another one for the wrist strap. And the pouch. And the case. And the screen wiper. Lolol

I applied 2 screen protectors and failed both tries. Bubbles shat me so i dont use it. Dont need it if its in a case.

Japan gets it later because the launch titles are very westernised and jap titles wont be realy till sometime feb. thats the reason they said at the jap conference earlier today.

so its time for bed since my vita died from my kz merc session but one great thing i totally forgot it does is if your vita dies while your gaming, you hook it up to the charger and then when theres enough charge it will turn itself back on and you'll be back right where your game was when the vita ran out of juice.

great little feature :D

Yamaha, denon, onkyo are all brandsI have had and been happy with.  If you need speakers as well then check out some of the packages available.  Costco had an onkyo setup at a stupidly cheap price a little while ago.

Your amp doesn't have optical in i assume? if so it's probably time for an upgrade.

It's a bit of a pain for me but i really only use my reciever for video throughput and leave the volume on zero  as i use the wireless headset most of the time. Unless i'm watching a blu ray or using vidzone etc will i change my settings back to 7.1 via hdmi.


Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: SgtEeyore on September 11, 2013, 10:41:57 PM
thanks for the ideas guys. i'll check JB and costco (i think my sister has membership)

no barnz, my current Sony AV is really old. It was actually the first thing i bought with my first job at Woolies in 1993. lol. So 20 years out of a $300 AV is definately great. It's not top quality, but for a games room it has been great.

I have an Onkyo in the lounge room, which is bloody awesome (and was fairly expensive), but i probably wouldnt spend that kind of money for the games room.

Costco were doing the model up from my Onkyo receiver (well the next years version) with speakers for $700 at one stage which is less than I paid for just my receiver.  Oh, I think it was 5.1 not 7.1 which didn't faze me.  It even had an ethernet port for audio streaming.

It has happened with other consoles, I think the PS2 got very rare for a while after launch.  It also depends how they service the global market as they will pull stock destined  for Australia to support other countries.

If this is true M$ will have a problem in a couple years. The devs won't start pushing the consoles probably for 2 years and it sounds like the PS4 will do it but the Xbone might struggle to keep up.

I reckon you should be able to find a ps4 somewhere in Sydney on release day without pre ordering. If JB, EB sell out you can bet on BigW, Harvey Norman having a few i reckon and what about places like Bing Lee or Good Guys....do they sell consoles cause i'm not sure but might be the last resort lol.

I fired up sine mora(?) which I downloaded not having the slightest clue what it was. I like it! But I'm stuck on lvl3 where I get insta killed in a tunnel :( can't figure it out

Limbo is cool too, but I am also stuck towards the beginning if the game where there is a crate floating in water. I have drowned so many times.

All in all...massive raz fail

1. kz (physical disc) + ps4
2. watch dogs (physical disc) + ps4
3. ps4 + camera + controller


** Gaikai ps3 streaming launching next year. ps4, vita and vita tv (nice) will eventually get it too. USA launch at the moment no news on EU just yet.

** ps3 to ps4 upgrade program detailed

http://www.thesixthaxis.com/2013/09/19/ps3-to-ps4-game-upgrade-program-detailed-in-full/

example:
So, when you buy a disc or digital copy of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, NBA 2K14 or Watch Dogs, you’ll be able to spend £9.99 (or £11.99 in the case of NBA) to receive a download copy of the title on PS4.

Sounds good to me but Im probably holding off on buying anymore ps3 games..

A) it's coincidence
B) if its not, maybe Sony will take the feature away?

1. The secondary chip for ultra-low power operation will mostly activate at night from 1 to 4 AM and download any required update automatically. It will also activate when software is purchased through external means like the PlayStation App.

2. Since the Blu-Ray player is 6x instead of 2x in speed (like the one on the PS3 was) the initial spinning noise is actually louder, but that will be countered by caching to the hard disk drive.

3. The theme of the PS4 is “Personalization”, meaning that it will offer an experience tailored to each individual.

Hi Aro.gantz,

Thanks for contacting us.

At this stage our buying team have not received any confirmation in regards to whether this bundle will be available here in Australia.

Generally if a new product is announced then you will need to place a new preorder for this item.

Best to keep an eye out on our website www.ebgames.com.au for any further updates to this.

Thanks again for your enquiry; we hope to see you back online again soon.

Regards,


Tells me they haven't got a clue :D

Interesting article, he sounded like he begrudgingly decided the PS4 has a better lineup.  But with an opening comment like "Once again, cash-strapped gamers will be forced to choose a side — do you jump on the hype wagon and embrace the PS4 or ignore the naysayers and put faith in Xbox One? This is where exclusive launch titles can make all the difference." it was never going to be unbiased.

That's a win for Sony , I'm surprised MS didn't try to stop it somehow hehe

PS4 is region free, just like to PS3, but there is no mention of DLC's that I can see.

For the PS3 it was up to the game developers whether to put region locking on the games.

probably be dlc locked as always then since the vita as well is region free but dlc is locked to the origin of where the game was purchased.

so that long winded explanation = ps3 headsets will not work for chat at launch.

If it uses usb, then it'll work next year (good for my trittons)

but i agree with him, the consoles are rushing out to get sales for XMAS 2013. so much stuff isnt working at launch

isnt their going to be an in-ear style chat headset in the box for launch? if so, loud stereo + in-ear headset = working.

Post by: kunfushun on October 11, 2013, 11:17:05 AM
im not sure? i thought there is a built in mic on the controller and you can hook up your your own headset?

looks like its just somehting like that sgt.. a mono phone.

hmmm not happy at all with that, and the missus will be even more upset if I have to start playing with the stereo again (Can't help myself I have to have it loud). PS3 worked with my PX5s so it should work with the PS4 straight out of the box.
I'm no programmer but things wouldn't have changed that much in coding for them not to work, unless it was done on purpose.
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: spazmanaught on October 11, 2013, 01:34:37 PM
I agree Major. It's pretty poor form. Perhaps someone with the relevant skills could explain why they just can't transfer the config for headsets straight from the PS3? Surely the programing is able to do that?

After watching the vid, I reckon the only chat they have done at the moment is via the controller with their headset.  Somebody forgot people use external devices for chat as well.

Yeah exactly.

Until Sony comes out and says bluetooth isnt supported out of the box i won't take any advice from some Astro rep.

Obviously as someone with a bluetooth headset i'd be annoyed but i fully expect this to work day one even if that meant a day one patch.

If it doesn't well they well and truly flapped up.

http://au.playstation.com/ps3/support/games/detail/linked648169/item649074/PlayStation-3-to-PlayStation-4-Digital-Upgrade-Programme-Full-Instructions/

in summary, you get activation code, you activate on your psn account (can be on ps3) then you download on ps4 using the account you activated the code with. then you will need the ps3 disc in the ps4 to play the game.

Target Not Honouring PS4 Preorders
http://aussie-gamer.com/news/target-australia-will-honor-playstation-4-pre-orders/

Rumour has it at the moment that CoD Ghosts on the Xbox One runs at 720p whilst the PS4 version runs at 1080p.

Also, Developer team, People Can Fly has apparently also confirmed the PS4 is 50% more powerful. Time will soon tell if all this is true.

SONY working on a Grand FAQ that will answer all remaining questions. Set to be posted in the next week or two.

Can I listen to audio CDs using PS4?
No, PS4 does not support audio CDs.

While not a big deal I put most of my music on an external connected to my PS3 from the CD. I guess I'll just do it via USB and PC. Adds a step but it better be able to play music normally or that's a fail!

Quote
Does PS4 include a music visualizer feature?
No.
Will I be able to play MP3s on PS4?
No.

Well they are blocking music on the system unless you use music unlimited or Curiosity? Am I reading this part right?

Quote
Will PS4 support custom Dynamic Themes, as currently available on the PS3 system?
No, PS4 will not support Dynamic Themes as they currently exist on the PS3 system.

WTF??? A more powerful machine can't do this? Am I missing something?

Quote
Will PS4 support media servers or DLNA support in order to stream videos or movies from a home PC?
The PS4 system does not support client functionality for media servers.

OK this is officially the biggest fail in consoles. The PS4 is a gaming and blu-ray player only. Xbone ( if it does work as a media centre ) just went a long way forward!

Quote
* After the update, most commercially available USB headsets will be compatible.

I wonder if my PX41's will work? PX5's just got boned!

Quote
Can users copy the recorded gameplay video from PS4 to other devices, such as PC?
PS4 users will not be able to directly copy recorded gameplay video files from PS4 to other devices, though they will be able to use the DUALSHOCK 4 controller’s Share button to upload videos to Facebook for distribution. This function will be supported by a future system update.

Can I share my game videos on YouTube?
No. At launch, PS4 users will be able to use the Share button on the DUALSHOCK 4 controller to upload gameplay videos to their Facebook account, or to stream live gameplay to Ustream or Twitch. PS4 owners can follow PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation.com for further news on other services to come after launch.

Does PS4 support external HDMI-based game capture devices?
PS4 will allow the use of external HDMI-based capture devices following an upcoming system software update — please follow PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation.com for news following the launch of PS4.

Looks like they will allow some type of capture but later and the limitations on upload is annoying. Facebook isn't the place I go to watch Zam's hatchet kills or Major's knifing exploits. Fail = PS4

What type of hard drive does PS4 use?
PS4 is equipped with a 5400 RPM SATA II hard drive. Users can choose to install a new hard drive so long as it complies with these standards, is no thicker than 9.5mm, and is larger than 160GB

I was hoping for a faster drive.

Quote
What impact will the DUALSHOCK 4 controller’s integrated speaker have on gameplay?
DUALSHOCK 4′s integrated speaker lets inventive game developers immerse players more fully in the game world. In the example of Killzone: Shadow Fall, audio diaries collected in the campaign mode will be broadcast though DUALSHOCK 4 integrated speaker. We anticipate that developers will devise other interesting ways to use this feature.

Not sure on this, especially if they get the headsets working (you won't hear it)

Yes, this is possible.

When playing disc-based games on PS4, do I need to install data to the hard drive?

Yes, all PS4 Blu-ray Disc games must be cached to the hard drive to ensure a smooth gaming experience. However, certain titles may not require you to wait for the game data to be fully cached before starting gameplay. In order to start playing disc-based games, users will need to insert the game disc into PS4 just like on the PS3 system.
This is an odd choice, mandatory installs for all games but a 5400rpm sata II hard drive. You'd think if they were going down this path top notch storage would be a must.

I'm 100% with you.

All the "Other" features the PS3 has I rarely use, and when I do it reminded my as to why I rarely use them.

Did anyone with a Vita pick up on this in the FAQ

Can Remote Play work outside the user’s home network?

We strongly recommend that Remote Play be used within the same WiFi network where PS4 is connected. Remote Play may or may not work over a wide area network. For Remote Play to function over a wide area network, a robust and stable WiFi connection and broadband Internet connection is required, and the local area network where PS4 is connected must be configured to permit the PS Vita system to access PS4.

PS Vita Firmware 3.00 Brings PS4 Link, Automatic Updates And WiFi Content Manager

http://www.thesixthaxis.com/2013/11/05/ps-vita-firmware-3-00-brings-ps4-link-automatic-updates-and-wifi-content-manager/
http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/11/05/ps-vita-3-00-system-update-available-today/

Firstly, PS4 Link will now appear on your handheld’s home screen. Essentially, this allows for control of the PS4 through your Vita, Remote Play of PS4 games on the system and second screen features, much like various game companion apps offer.

Parental Controls now has its own application too, and although that might seem like a bit too much clutter for your home screen, the ability to manage the duration of gameplay and block specific games and videos, as well as controlling access to specific applications and location data seems quite useful for parents.

And panoramic photos are a thing now! I’m not sure why – does anyone really use their PS Vita as a dedicated camera? Still, a neat feature to have. Also, if you use the system for emails then you’re able to sync contacts from Gmail or Yahoo.

Friends has also had a layout update. Don’t worry, I’m not talking about the popular sitcom so Joey and Chandler are still where you want them to be, but the Friends list on the system now has four tabs: Find Player, Friends, Friend Requests and Players Blocked.

Along with that, the Messages app – previously Group Messaging – has an improved layout, and you can send messages to PS4 or users on the PlayStation App. Likewise, the Party Chat app’s icon is different and you can chat with players on PS4, and Trophies will now show PS4 silverware in there too.

Content Manager now works over WiFi, so you don’t have to grumble and groan about taking the Vita’s wall charger apart in order to transfer content from PS3. It needs to be the same network that you’re on, and the PS3 must have firmware 4.50 but that’s about it.

Remote Play is now PS3 Remote Play, so you won’t be confused, and future software updates can be downloaded automatically so this will likely be the last one you manually download.

It’s also worth mentioning that the PX4 (http://www.turtlebeach.com/px4) is 1 of the only 4 wireless headsets that will work out of box on day 1. Wondering what the other 3 headsets are? Turtle Beach’s Ear Force Phantom, Ear Force PX51 (http://www.turtlebeach.com/px51) and Ear Force XP510 (http://www.turtlebeach.com/xp510)! We got you covered!!!

This coming from Turtle Beach.
But the PX51s are just a upgraded version of the PX5s just with lithium battery and Dual band on the wireless.
So why nothing about the PX5s  >:(

Email from EB today

PlayStation 4 launch day will be a super busy, with thousands of people wanting to grab their shiny new gear as fast as possible to get their game on. With that in mind we've come up with some ways to make your PlayStation 4 pickup experience less stressful.

Firstly, what if we told you that you could get your PlayStation 4 for less?

Get more towards your PlayStation 4 during VIP Trade Week:

Simply trade your old Xbox 360 and PS3 hardware towards your PlayStation 4 and you’ll get a huge 50% Bonus Trade Credit! It gets even better, with DOUBLE your EB World Bonus Trade Credit for any games you trade! Make the most of this great deal at your local EB Games store from this Saturday 9th November to next Saturday 16th November, and get your PlayStation 4 for less!

With your gaming dollar taking you further, let us save you some time as well. With our FastPass express pickup queue you'll spend less time waiting and more time gaming.

Getting your FastPass is super simple:

Preorder all your PlayStation 4 games and accessories
Pay off in full all preorders you’ll be collecting on launch day
Get your FastPass coupon and receipt -- keep these together!
On PlayStation 4 launch day line up in the FastPass queue
Head home with your new PlayStation 4 console, games and accessories sooner!
Important info about using your FastPass:

Keep your FastPass coupon and fully paid receipt in a safe and secure place!
The FastPass queue will be for PlayStation 4 preorder pickups only, so make sure to get all your preorders and trades done early – like during VIP Trade Week!
You can get a FastPass up until 5pm on Thursday 28th November.
Must-read info about your Next Gen preorder:

PlayStation 4 launch day is 29th November, check HERE for midnight openings near you.
All PlayStation 4 console preorders need to be picked up within 72 hours of launch, by COB Sunday 1st December. EB World Level 4 members have 7 days -- until COB Friday 6th December-- to pick up their PlayStation 4 console preorders.
Due to high demand we cannot offer layby's for PlayStation 4 consoles and accessories.
PlayStation 4 requires an online membership, PSN+, in order to play online multiplayer games, and to access certain functionality and content. Online memberships are sold separately.
You may be required to activate your PlayStation 4 console online and/or download a software update in order to use the console, or to enable certain functionality. An internet connection and sufficient download limit is required.

Just received that myself, might head over on Sunday and pick up my FastPass and confirm if my PS4 is day one!

I'm not buying any Turtle Beach headsets ever again. Terrible brand IMO. I'll just stick to the mono earpiece until they add support for their own headsets.

I went to the TB website and checked out the PX4's, and they have the cable between the DS4 and the headset, similar to the photo I posted on G+.

I don't see why the PX5's won't work the same way.

Time will tell I guess

I'm amazed that they can put memory chips on both sides of the motherboard!

The design is also quite nice, masterful engineering by the Japanese. It's such a contrast to the innards of the Xbox One. I also find it cute that Microsoft, a software company, is so proud of their hardware design being the first to show off fancy videos and teardowns of their console.

Making Sense of no MP3 or DLNA Support on PlayStation 4

Quote
Like the PS3 helped to propel Sony’s Blu-Ray format to the forefront seven years ago, I think the PS4 will serve as a catalyst for Sony’s content and services to shine as it goes up against Netlix, Amazon, and (in the case of music) even Spotify and Rdio. Unfortunately, DLNA functionality (or the lack thereof) is simply a casualty of the content war.

i think it will be added later. most entertainment companies have made it pretty clear that their day1 devices and products are BETA releases and features are added over time. i'd hazard a guess that Sony didnt give these features day1 to ensure that testing is focussed in the right area, that gaming works as intended on day1, then over the coming year they'll add all these other features (including support for our 5.1 headsets)

morelikely connected to the home network, down the street would need the actual internet to work.

Post-launch PS4 update to add MP3, DLNA support, confirms Yoshida

Quote
"The biggest surprise for us all internally at Sony was; there were so many people who passionately reacted to our announcement that there's no MP3 support and DLNA support on day one," said Yoshida.

Quote
"We didn't really think about MP3 or DLNA. We always thought that we're going to do that eventually - we've been doing it with all the [PlayStation] products. So it caught us off guard. People don't really talk about these features but when we say we don't have it some people get really mad and [say], 'I cancelled the pre-order'."

Yoshida went on to confirm, "So as we speak, the teams in Japan and US - the systems guys - are discussing how and when we can put these features on PS4."

Those Hitachi's you linked to have had some bad experiences - about a 7% failure rate within the 1st 12mths.

I have 4 of a previous model in my NAS and they are noisy as anything.

Black are meant to be the top of the line, high performance, lots of cache. 5year warranty (all others are 2or 3)
Blue are everyday drives. different cache sizes available.
Green are low power for storage only.
Red are built for RAID/NAS usage. ie: designed to be running all the time

For a PS3/4, blue will be fine.

42sec to instal BF4  :o

Quote
Here are the install times I got for the update and each game:

1.06 System update: 6:15

57 seconds to copy the update from the disc
10 seconds to scroll through the EULA
4:10 to prepare, reboot and install
Remaining time is other menus and loading
Knack: 32 seconds
Killzone: Shadow Fall: 0:38
Battlefield 4: 0:42
Injustice: Gods Among Us: 0:28
Just Dance 2014: 0:24
Madden 25: 0:23
Assassin’s Creed 4: 0:13

In total, from turning on the system, it took 14 minutes and 30 seconds to do a system update and install seven games. Not too shabby.

Thanks for the link M-Man. I'm undecided about the SSD for this. I want at least 500gb but can't justify $300. Maybe @ Xmas when we get our KZ bundles I'll use the funds for selling one of the PS4's to get a bigger SSD.

I've been thinking about this recently.......and considering most new games can be installed and started up within less then 45 seconds, is a ssd really worth it?

I know ingame loading between levels may be a bit quicker......but hmm.....not sure if it will be worth it (note i havent watched the above vid yet)
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: spazmanaught on November 15, 2013, 10:25:26 AM
The vid just showed that regun game Raz being about 15 seconds faster to start. I'm more interested in the big titles and any benefit. Also they didn't mention the SSD size?
Title: Re: Sony Console Chat
Post by: SgtEeyore on November 15, 2013, 10:40:47 AM
size doesnt affect performance, so i'm not sure it's relevant in the discussion. And as I've mentioned before, Sony have said that PS does not support TRIM, so whilst it is fast today, in a year from now, an SSD will not be as fast (sure, still faster than a HDD).

personally i dont see the point in an SSD. For MP and CO-OP, you'll need to wait for HDD people to join, and for SP....is a few seconds loading time really worth the price of an SSD?

Where did you see that?

There are two patches available to everyone- a 300mb one to update the existing HDD and a 900mb one for new HDD's.

Everything i have seen says the US one the same as everywhere else - 300mb.

I have downloaded both for Day1, just in case I decide on the new HDD

For those with PX5's, here is how to set them up with the PS4

You will need one of these

2.5mm male to 3.5mm male cable

I actually think this is a cop out and to make it worse it is just stealing the MS tech from 8 years ago, make out headsets work the way they are meant to and let us configure the speakers so we do not need to use the one in the DS4. I went wireless for a reason.

Quote
"All our USB headsets should receive both game and chat audio once Sony pushes an update to the PS4, which it says will be available on day one," Turtle Beach said. SteelSeries' director of audio, Dan Radin, nodded: "This is the situation for all USB headsets, not only SteelSeries'."

He then teased: "We're going to be introducing something very exciting, very soon - especially for console players - that will enable cable-less PS4 chat once Sony issues its USB headset update."

I reckon this might be a bit out. It might cost $381 for what they see but my guess Sony's massive buying power lowers that substantially. Then when things improve it gets cheaper. They learnt from the PS3 and had this planned a while ago.

30% failure rate would be big news mainstream. Also more than likely cause a regulator to step in and instruct Sony on the ramifications. So far the winging has died down. My guess it's under the acceptable 3% limit.

Im summary, he says the PS4 is the better Next Gen console. It is fantastic for gaming, and does the other media stuff quite good.
The xbox does gaming ok, and fantastic for the media stuff.
If its a choice between one or the other, it depends on what you want it for, but for the hardcore gamers he recommends the ps4.

Not sure about OS but in Aus you have to have a ' reasonable ' amount of replacement or similar devices available for customers. Not a well known rule but it's to stop HN/JB etc over selling stock they don't have but can also cover warranty issues etc.

So on Gaf there are reports that EU consoles are made in Japan where as the USA ones were all made in China.

Someone also took pics of a EU model and it shows it was made in Japan.

Wonder if this will have an effect on the failure rate at all? I mean, I still expect there to be consoles that fail, it is a launch after all.

Yes bb it will connect to US servers, no Aus servers until next week. I would say they will be the same as they are for PS3 where some will have Aus ones.

It did have some charge in it Homer but you do have to plug it in to connect anyway and I let it charge while I was setting it up and working outside.

Initial impressions:

I think they have done a top job on the xmb, it is a lot faster and the design just works, will be interesting to see how it evolves with a lot of games but for now it is a winner.

The DS4 feels familiar, it wasn't until I stopped playing and really just felt the controller until I realised it does in fact feel nicer than the DS3, the L2/R2 shape and response leave the DS3s version well behind, the size and the shape of the thumbsticks makes them more comfortable and with more resistance than the DS3 they just feel much nicer.

I only got to try two games, Blacklight Retribution and Warframe, I can see many clan nights of mayhem in BR and Warframe will be some good co-op fun similar to Defiance, and both are free games.

Now I just need some locals to play with.

It appears that even though the systems are not region locked for games they could be for BD, I just received an incorrect region warning when I tried to play a disc that did play in the PS3, it could also be that the update hasn't fixed the BD issue yet.

PlayStation 4 games may be region free, but Blu-Rays are region locked. President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida responded to a question on twitter and confirmed that the PlayStation 4 Blu-Ray player will indeed be region locked.

http://www.playstationgang.com/playstation-4s-blu-ray-player-is-region-locked/#sthash.VusyT6IZ.dpuf

The update was just to enable playback, not do away with region locking of BD's

Quote
Yes, you will need to download and install PS4’s day-one system software update 1.50, and then activate your Blu-ray Disc video capability with a one-time activation through the internet in order to play Blu-ray Disc films and DVD video content.

I have worked out the sharing method and it is designed for one household with two machines but it could still be done in separate households.

The key to sharing is the primary console, it gives you the option to make any console the primary console when you set up your account on it, as an example anyone with an account on my primary console can play my games but only I can play them if it is not my primary because I need to be logged in, for Lara and I to share digital her machine will be my primary and mine will be hers so she will be able to play the games I bought and since I will be logged into the other machine I will also be able to play them and they can be played at the same time, to share when you are not in the same household you would need to trust each other enough to allow this method, I am sure this is not how Sony or the devs planned to be used but as far as I can see it is also not breaching any T&C's, it doesn't say your primary console must be in your house.

xbox chat cable with my px5s is the 2.5mm both ends.
Thanks Homer for finding this, I'm making sure I have it all setup beforehand.

Also from Jaycar
http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=WA7004

Major, I think these cables won't work.

I have doing a bit more reading and it looks like the 3.5mm end of the cable needs to have 3 rings. (2 for audio and 1 for mic) and the Jaycar one only has 2

Edit: CRAP - looks like I'm right

Have a look at the TB site image of the cable

There was talk somewhere here of the games being cheaper via the store for digital content - it's not what I see at all:

CoD Ghosts: $104.95
FIFA 14: $104.95
BF4: $104.95

Post by: Pat on November 27, 2013, 05:29:52 PM
There was talk somewhere here of the games being cheaper via the store for digital content - it's not what I see at all:

CoD Ghosts: $104.95
FIFA 14: $104.95
BF4: $104.95

the only cheaper game is Killzone - and probably because it won't be as popular as the other titles such as those above?

I would say the real reason is the publisher is not EA or Activision.

yeah this amazes me. If it's being sold for $79 in JB for pretty much every title on PS4, it should therefore be around $60 for the digital copy right? Anyway due to my download restrictions at home I'm going to put FIFA, CoD and AC: Black Flag on eBay tonight, recoup nearly all of what I paid judging by what 2nd hand Aus copies are selling for, and buy them all plus BF4 for PS4 from JB.

Handles, the talk might of been how much cheaper games are in the US psn store.
COD $59, BF4 $59, not sure on fifa but im sure about the same.

If the AUS psn store had these prices, it would be a viable option, since its not I stick to hard copies for my local games.

Can you backup separate installed games to a external drive instead of doing a full system backup? Also saw a few reports of the left analog stick rubber cracking and falling off on the ds4. Seems like a annoying problem to have i'd say.

AroGantz, how does the BF4 ps3 - ps4 upgrade work with your stats? They merge over to the ps4 as a new soldier, But if you play on the ps3 again, does it also update for the ps4 soldier?
Are they linked because of origin, or are they independent soldiers?

I believe they are linked via origin mate, there are no Australian servers for PS4  yet and I won't play on EU servers so I'll let you know for sure on Friday.

Yeah I tried my earforce foxtrots and they work out of the box. Not going to use them though. The entire cable set-up is bullshit. Also the plug into the controller is crap. It just gets in the way. That's something the didn't need to copy from M$. My PX5's work for sound now so I'll stick with that.

But being serious for a minute the PS4 OS is no way what they intended to release. The mish mash way it is thrown together and lack of customizations makes it seem maybe 50% complete. You only have to look at the notifications section. DL and uploads are there ..... WTF?? Yes they should be there when complete to notify you they are done but while working?? Then the single section chat and trophies just seems odd. And to top it off the settings menu has everything else just jumbled in together. Stuff that is settings and then other random stuff ( PSN etc ). I'm glad Sony spent the time to make sure the gaming stuff worked ( quick load ups etc ) but surely the OS could have been made to be a bit more functional. I imagine this os will be fully replaced within a year. With Sony copying M$ so much if they went the way of the Xbone it would be an improvement on what they currently have.

Yes, new xmb looks more like the demo version but its OK at the moment, later when they add new features and the library grows, then it will be messy. Not sure if you guys talked about this before but I found very handy the option to activate/deactivate primary ps4, sometimes is a bit tiring playing upstairs so Lyn and I constantly swap so it will be great for digital copies as we won't need to stick to a console to make it work, buti have the feeling They will limit the times that you can do this at some stage.

Meanwhile in the US, early signs are that the Xbox One may be building an early lead in the next-gen war, as unofficial figures claimed it performed far better in the traditional Black Friday sales.

Perhaps the fact you can't get a PS4 and the Xbones are being given away might have something to do with those figures.

that's terrible...it's was a selling point. The PS4 is seriously a massive waste of money at the moment

I dunno, I am enjoying mine!

Same.

This is not the reason i bought the system

not the reason i bought it, but just another feature that doesnt work properly.

With our internet in this country it was always going to be a fail anyway, I'm enjoying Killzone, War Thunder and Resogun enough to make it worth the money.

They never said it would be available Day1 - so I don't rate it as a fail at all.

"Doesn't work properly" indicates that it is available and working - just not correctly. It's just not there and is a future feature of the system.

I will get upset if they don't sort out DLNA and 3D playback in the next couple of months though.  I use both of these.  DLNA I can live without but I now don't have any other 3D bluray device connected to my TB

I am able to get the TB cables from the US currently. I have 2, 1 for me and Major got in first for the other. Who else would want one if I can get them? Cost is $10. Doesn't cost me that but if you suckers want to play then that's the deal  :P

Looks like Tuact (developer of third part mouse Aimon for ps3) has admitted Sony's blocking of third party devices really works. The PS4 will only allow communication to the controller via Bluetooth, making devices like the third party mouse which use usb to a bluetooth dongle not compatible. I guess it also means people with Steering wheel setups wont work either?
Tuact says they should be able to make the mouse work with Xbox One.

Sony will only allow their own products to work.

Does anyone know if Sony plans to release a patch to allow usb connection for controls?

I think they will have too. Third party products/company's produce a lot of stuff Sony don't.

This is a feature i really want as i plan to shelve the PS3 and use the ps4 when i buy one for all my streaming needs. I do not want to have both the ps3/4 connected at the same time or buy a seperate media streamer....in short...hurry up Sony!!!!!

I've checked on WP and it seems i maybe won't be able to snag a PS4 till next year and this really doesn't worry me.

edit- I don't have a major issue with Sony blocking third party controllers. If you want to use a mouse get a PC without the auto aim  :o Best part about console fps is everyone is on the same playing field imho.

Sorry I dont agree with you. I am self employed and using my home pc is part of my daily business. I cant afford to have it not running. Last time my home pc kept having blue screen issues I couldnt find any fixes after weeks, I just bought a new one from Office works and didnt make any upgrades (other than power supply).
When I was PC gaming I would constantly have to spend money making sure the specs where up to scratch, constantly be troubleshooting freezing, blue screens, driver incompatability and I would spend just as much time getting the pc working than playing games. Also my study is upstairs which gets really hot, having overheating issues in summer, my pc screen is 24" and the seat is ok for a little. I game on console for the easy of setup and use. I normally only enjoy one fps at a time, it was mw2, then mw3, now its bf4. The rest of the games I use a controller.

Now days most of the games I play are rpg or action so the playstation is a better option. I play downstairs in my home theatre room which has acoustic sound proofing in the walls, sound treating within the room via bulkheads, raised floor, curtains, 7.1 surround system and 110" 1080P projector. I get to sit on my couch with my feet up, pump the volume up and enjoy  :up:

Sorry for the rant but you will not convince me to get back into PC gaming  :troll: , worst case I will try use the analog sticks again on a fps on ps4, or just keep playing bf4 on ps3.

Also I will also get upset about the DLNA, I use my ps3 to stream from my NAS daily. At the moment it looks like I will still use my ps3 more than ps4 until the ps4 gets up to scratch.

Great set-up and exactly how I feel about the PS4's lack of workings. If it is just a games console with Blu-Ray it should be $199. It's just a newer PS3 with less features.
