PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

Since all videos are being taken down, the controller has slightly revised greys and you can see a part of the light bar through the touch pad, which is pretty cool because it means you can actually see your own colour.... Wonder if it has a better battery life and more durable analogue sticks.

There seems to still be a video still live embedded in this article...

...Until it's probably taken down as well. :indeed:

 

On closer inspection it doesn't look too bad, I still prefer the original, no light bar on the console in this revision - it's underneath the moved power button instead - though the extended light bar in the controller is a nice touch. :)

I thought they removed the slant for the slim but its there! Couldn't tell with the usual bad quality leak pictures. Its 2016 how hard is it?

It looks quite nice, i'm keen to see what they price it at though.

 

What I don't understand is how it made its way outside of Sony and onto Gumtree for someone to buy. I could understand if a factory worker leaked pictures but for someone to have a full retail ready console before it's even announced is crazy.

Apparently it's been in retail chains for weeks now. It looks as though it will be announced officially at the PlayStation meeting and then made available straight after.

Ugh. Fuck that lightbar. I play in dark rooms, and on the lowest setting its still blindingly bright.

Yours must be very bright because I barely notice the light on my DS4...it doesn't even reach a wall that is more than 50cm away.

PS Now announced for PC. Also a wireless dongle for PC and Mac users to use the Dualshock wirelessly .

Btw if you're looking at this right now and thinking "perfect, I've always wanted a DS4 wireless dongle, how soon can I depart with my $25?", then you should know that a <£1 bluetooth dongle does the job fine with some free third party software.

It's not that crazy really. Even before Sega went officially multiplatform they had PC games. Remember PC is not a "platform", the way it is with a console, you don't need to adhere to someone else's license requirements (except the usual engines/APIs etc but that's not going in the pockets of competitors) to release your PC applications.

Pretty surreal to think that there's now an official way to play Playstation games on PC! How long until we get Playstation Now on Xbox One/NX? ;)

 

Just before Nintendo go third party ;)

Got an email the other day, PSplus is raising its price $60/year $25/ 3 months. I haven't looked exactly, but I haven't really seen this mentioned elsewhere.

I was watching random video game videos on YouTube yesterday and came across a guy's channel that has some great content on it. He recently posted a video showcasing what games are coming to the PS4 between now and the start of next year.

 

 

Crazy amount of games, with a nice variety on genres going on, as well.

Overwatch are doing a free weekend for PS4 players from Sept 9-12 (will start at 7pm BST). I encourage everyone to check it out! It's a lot of fun and, at least while competitive mode is active, there'll nearly always be a few of us on there.

 

Details

The "What's New" section on my PS4 hasn't updated since July 1st. I remember someone else having this problem. Was it you @Hero\-of\-Time? Did you manage to fix it?

Yeah, it was me. Sadly I can't offer any advice as mine just randomly fixed itself not long after I complained about it on here. Maybe yours will be fixed now that you've done the same. :D

@Dr\. bob even with the Beta Firmware update the What's New section is buggy as hell.

It updates whenever it feels like it. The last time it updated for me was yesterday and now it shows me stuff from very early August (5th of August)...

 

I think Sony has gotten a lot of messages about how shitty it is :D Hopefully they're working on it.
