I finally joined the ps4 club. PSN: Wolfyne

 

I've been enjoying Destiny recently, but the war is mine has also caught my attention. That game is rough!

Sooooo it seems like a good PS4 week sales wise.

 

 

http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/horizon-zero-dawn-beats-zelda-to-no-1/0179703

 

Instead, it’s Sony’s PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn that grabs the crown, beating Nintendo’s adventure title by a comfortable margin and becoming PS4’s biggest ever new IP launch in the process.

 

Seems stock limited too in various places. Such a good game. :)

 

Props to Zelda too. WiiU numbers a let down.

 

Ghost Recon this week should outsell both combined.

Bah. And she's making you use the old TV. No wonder you attempted to sell her.

 

But the new tv was a gift for my birthday. And it is plugged into my PS4. :(

 

As a trade off, @Fierce_LiNk gets to use the lounge side of our new sofa so he can stretch his legs, while I have to use the normal part of the sofa like a peasant. :P

The new update that features boost mode finally gets released for the masses tomorrow.

 

Improved 2D Images on PS VR

If you’re playing a game in PS VR and you return to the PS4 home screen, you may notice that the resolution looks lower than normal on the TV Social Screen. Following this update, you’ll find that the resolution of the system screen displayed on your TV is significantly better when you’re out of VR mode.

 

Voice Chat for Remote Play

We’re adding voice chat when using Remote Play on Windows PC, Mac or an Xperia device. This is especially useful if you’ve got a gaming session planned with your friends, but you’re away from your system. You can switch your mic on and off via the microphone icon on the Tool Bar of the Remote Play app.

 

Off Console Availability

We have a variety of off-console apps and features that make communication with other gamers easier, like the PlayStation App and PS Messages. We’re adding an icon, shaped like a smartphone, which indicates a player is logged into PSN but away from their system.

 

Boost Mode (for PlayStation 4 Pro only)

PS4 Pro gets a new feature in this update called Boost Mode. This feature has been designed to provide better performance for select legacy titles that have not been patched to take advantage of the PS4 Pro’s faster CPU and its faster and double-sized GPU.

 

PS Messages and Communities app Updates

We’re also updating the PS Messages (Android/iOS) and PS Communities (Android/iOS) apps tomorrow with a few handy features.

 

Also, LocoRoco and PaRappa The Rapper release dates and prices have been revealed.

 

Stolen from GAF.

That party chat option in the quickmenu is such a great QoL improvement for people who play with friends regularly. I've been using it a lot during the beta. :)

Is this the firmware upgrade that allows you to use external HDD?

Maybe I'm hallucinating but I think I've seen you post that initialism a couple of times now. Do you mean Quality of Life? If so, please dig yourself a grave.

Okay, am I doing it wrong? Do you just not like it? I don't understand.

I don't like it which means you should stop it immediately. *reverts back to 99% lurking mode*

Ok, if it bothers you I'll stop. It should be a QoL improvement for you.

So, how's Horizon? Finished Zelda now and Horizon looks good!

 

16 hours in and it's amazing.

 

Great story (so far), combat is absolutely incredible, it has the usual open-world tropes but they complement the main path nicely and from a technical standpoint it is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Been playing God of War III Remastered a little more and I can't believe how well it holds up, both graphically and from a gameplay standpoint. The latter is debatable since there hasn't been any shakeup in the formula, yet, but after a 4-year break from the series I find the the gameplay to be fun :D

I was scrolling through the digital sale list on the ps store when I found this little gem, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher. I decided on the pre order after about five second of viewing a gameplay video on Gamespot. Looks like a cute version of Harvest Moon/Animal Crossing/Oceanhorn. Described as open world RPG. Thought I'd mention it if anyone else is interested in this type of game. Out July 18th.

Urgh, the character design is really not my thing...

 

Other than that it looks kinda cool. Future PS+ title maybe. I'll wait.
