Did you use the direct link? No idea what exactly it's called, it let's you connect the Vita directly (duh) to your PS4 via WiFi without using the router. This made remote play lag-free for me. : peace:

 

That reminds me, i need to try this as i tried it via my router (and got the lag).

why does deleteing an app take so long on the ps4? I downloaded tower fall as it was on psplus and hated it, so now its been telling me please wait after selecting delete about 5min ago....

 

It's just punishing you for being awful ;)

I think you need some mates to really enjoy tower fall.

 

I have no mates :(

 

 

Seriously though maybe I was too harsh

 

 

Eitherway tried it more today and it's much better, kill zone is alright but it's not as good as I'd hoped it would be.

 

I tried P.T.

 

I can't take that game! I actually passed the pad to my girlfriend to explore the bathroom.....then took it back shortly after while listening to the radio......no idea when the end of the demo is, I switched it off

 

No no no nightmare fuel

 

Game wise it looked amazing!

My niece came over and had her first go on the PS4 (it was also her first playstation experience at all). First thing she said was that the controller felt and looked great.

 

Then we had a four hour marathon on Diablo 3. She bloody loved it.

If you bought Hotline Miami previously on PS3 or got it when it was free with PS+ it should now also be free for you to download on PS4.

 

I think I might have to give it a try as ive never played it with a controller before. I cant see it being better than the speed you get from using a mouse though.

Hmm has anyone had the following error happen to them?

 

Error CE-34878-0

 

Mine happened while playing The Last of Us there was no disc eject though or anything like that, incidentally it's the first time I've saved video's on the PS4 so could be related?

 

Just curious anyway as my PS4 has been fine up until now.

I think it will work better with a controller if anything because with the mouse the aiming gets borked if you want to look ahead (by pressing ctrl I believe), whereas if you're using the stick it won't do that.

 

The stick points to where you're aiming all the time independently of movement, but the mouse pointer has to move around the character, which affects movement and aiming. If that makes any sense whatsoever.

Nah I played it last night and I pretty much hate playing it with the controller. I need the speed and precision of the mouse aiming.

I had no choice but to play through most of Hotline Miami with a controller, as some weird glitch prevented me from being able to go back to keyboard & mouse. :blank:

 

It still plays pretty well with a controller though, increases the challenge slightly too. Not that the game needs it. :heh:

Its probably one of those things where I would have been fine with the controller if thats what I had used first but as I said, the speed and precision is just too much to give up.

I thought it played quite well on the Vita. But yeah, I can imagine coming off mouse and keyboard it might feel a bit sluggish.

 

Has this got cross-save?

I heard the transition to PS4 has made the controlls a little awkward and horrible, have to check it out myself to be sure. Vita controls are fine.

:o how so?

 

I played the game on PC with a PS3 controller and thought it was awesome. Can't imagine how the transition to PS4 made it horrible? :wtf:

Or is it the transition to controllers in general and not the PS4 in particular?

I cant see what they would have done between PS3 and 4 that would have changed the controls up all that much. The only difference would be the touchpad and thats just used for auto-targeting along with a couple of other buttons depending on your preference.

I think it's in transition to PS4, i'm not sure where i read it. i think it was on the Gaf or something.

Looking forward to messing around with the level editor. :hehe:

Just preordered FIFA 15, Destiny and Assassins Creed: Unity from Amazon for £40.00 a piece. They seemed to have dropped a bunch of games preorders by £5.00 so figured I would get them preordered now incase they jack the price back up.

 

I'll be keeping an eye on Shopto to see if they match the price, as I would prefer to get the games from them.

I cancelled my £44.99 pre-order with Amazon and got their £40 pre-order.

 

Amazing they don't automatically price-check themselves straight away.

I think amazon have started taking popular codes into their price matching. Tesco has a £5 off £30 spend so you can get Destiny there for £40 right now (with a t-shirt and headset, if that's your kind of thing)

 

Also ASDA are doing the Destiny/PS4 bundle for £329 with a code so guess what... amazon are now doing it for £329 too.

I've been set on a ps4 for a while now - just slowly saving away, but just seen there is a white model available for preorder and I'm really tempted. The new list of games coming to the system as well as the ones already there I haven't played yet like The Last Of Us, InFamous, Watch Dogs, Tomb a Raider etc etc is making me really tempted to just dive in now. Urgh. Damn white sexiness teasing me. Should I?
