Re Pure Pool. I love it too. Im level 47 now, but I turned pro at 45 and STILL havent got the pro trophy, in spite of the patch saying the trophies are fixed. They are not. But the other improvements are good tho :-)

I have the same issue. Ive had my ps4 since day1 and it NEVER patches or updates when on standby. My ps3 does tho, so I know its not my setup (router etc). And yes yes YES the settings are right ;-)

I agree. I don't read anywhere that gamers are dissatisfied with being re-sold the same games but just a bit shinier. Is it just me?? But you're right, this need to stop. They are not enough to justify the leap to ps4.

What a croc. A year ago Sony assured us that the ps4 was for the gamers. It seems their agenda was the same as microsofts afterall - a network machine. What a joke, when the ps3 STILL has more functions than the ps4! I am TODAY more disapointed with Sony than ever. Watch Dogs has proven yet again that the long wait for a true next-gen game experience is still way off. I have had my ps4 since day one, but am beginning to regret my purchase. It feels like Ive been duped into buying what I thought was the next generation of gaming, when the last 6 months and today especially (watch dogs just looks like a downgraded "Arcade Conversion" of the demo displayed 2 years ago!) it seems all I have bought is a PS3Turbo. It gives the exact same experience, just a little smoother. Reminds me of upgrading my spectrum48k to the Spectrum128.

It makes me laugh that my ps plus Instant Game Collection on my ps4 only ever has one or two games in it at any one time. At present the whole collection on offer is... dead nation. haha

I will cherish that feeling I remember when I got my jap ps1 and turned it on for the first time. I was hoping to recapture that, but realistically I doubt I'll feel the same awe cos I'm older and wiser, and there's not really a killer app like tekken or ridge racer. I may be wrong tho, I'm still stoked for next Friday :-)

3d is great but only if implemented well. super stardust and wipeout were fantastic in 3d. I can't help feeling disappointed at the lack of support on ps4.. after all most big action films have 3d versions these days. shame the games industry has given up too early

I, I, I... That's all I'm reading. just because the lack of these fundamentally used features are or aren't used by you, does not take away the principle here. The ps4 is the next gen games machine from Sony. just like the iphone14e will one day be the next gen phone from apple. what if apple just decide not to support features like games in that version? There would be hell to pay. Many people have done or will sell their ps3 in order to afford the next gen. They should have known long before now that they were actually losing some cool features. thats the point here, not "I'm alright jack"

Oh for gods sake.. Tesco.com said "In stock" so I log in, go to chckout n get this.. "Sorry, we don't have enough Sony PSVita 3G and WiFi Console items in stock right now. This item (s) has been added to your save for later basket. You can try to purchase this item again by reducing its quantity."

I give up. A wasted afternoon cos I read this article.

I am considering reporting Argos to Trading Standards. Upon further research, I have found it is impossible to buy a vita from ANY store in the UK OR online. As it is only until 22nd October (Tues) that status is unlikely to change, making the ad PURE bs. 2 games and a memory card free? Might as well promise a Rolls effing Royce with it too!!

Sucks sweaty arses :( I actually fell for the bs marketing tool of advertising something really cheap knowing they wont have to sell it cos they have no stock. Cant believe I fell for it again. And pushsquare - you should check your story out before publishing

rykkchii commented on Talking Point: How Have This Week's Delays Aff...:

Sony are very very cute yknow. they've buried m$ in this contest so far.. which leads me to think cynically that this was all part of the plan. release a bunch of games all on one day or stagger them over a couple of financial quarters. they already have a good idea how many consoles they're going to sell. the pre order marketing won't be affected, BUT NOW those millions of ps4 owners playing their (fewer) launch titles have something to buy in a month or two AS WELL AS what they will play on launch day. after all, you can only play one game at a time! Reflecting on the fact that I changed my pre order from watch dogs bundle to killzone bundle, I'll probably have both in a few months, when I might have overlooked killzone and been content with watch dogs. Clever Sony.. been doing this a long time yknow (marketing that is). Mr gates was listening to his sony walkman long before he was a billionaire...

rykkchii commented on UK Retailer GAME Announces PS4 Hands-On Tour S...:

I agree that the lineup they are showcasing is poor. they should want to amaze people with visually stunning stuff for an event like this. I would have taken the 60 mile round trip to my nearest show if ac4, killzone, resogun, drive club lol, or even NFS rivals were on show.. but marmite-like (love or loathe them) indie games don't show enough of the next gen leap in my opinion.

Its still worth the effort tho. In the short time I was on I got to level 6, got a nice car and bought a swish apartment. Its only day 1 so I really didnt get mad once server troubles stopped me. Ive never lost my character yet tho!

I had bought a jap import in April may time (for £450 with Tekken). it came with hard wired rgb to scart lead, so when I first booted tekken running full screen and speed I was blown away. I only had 2 games for ages. but tekken and ridge racer kept me very busy. remember the free games of Galaga and galaxians u got as these loaded? It was an amazing inclusion.
I was excited for the UK release tho cos of the launch titles wipeout and destruction derby.
happy birthday EU ps1.. they were fantastic gaming days :-)
