What the hell happened to the UK Store, half of the genres are missing? Mainly Action, Shooter and RPG

Was playing on my dad's PS4 this weekend and for the first time I really struggled. The games I played felt a but blurry and sluggish. Maybe it because it was the first time I played the same games on both consoles at similar times, but when I was back on my PS5 the games felt so much better.

@JohnnyShoulder I’m actually surprised at how quickly I’ve become spoiled by my PS5. I honestly thought I’d still use my PS4, but I also can see the difference, even in the PS4 menu where the lack of visual sharpness is actually noticeable.

I should have known that I would do this since I completely sidelined by PS3 within 6 months of getting my PS4, and that wasn’t even backward compatible.

Bentleyma-

I went back to my PS4 Slim after selling my PS5 and I don’t miss it. Yeah 4K, better framerate and faster load times were nice, but I guess I’m not overly bothered about those things. I’ve been playing my PS3 a lot recently and even 720p and sub 30 FPS on a lot of games doesn’t bother me.

Life is like a box of chocolates... I don't have a box of chocolates either.

@Bentleyma- yeah, I’ve had a PS5 since launch and only played Bugsnax and Spider-Man Remastered on it so far (oh and Assassin’s Creed Unity, as I didn’t want to delete anything off my PS4 in order to install it on that). I’m acquiring a nice little PS5 backlog though and looking forward to delving into it... just need to get the PS3 backlog sewn up first (& whittle down the PS4 one a little too).

@Bentleyma- yeah, I have a lot of games progress saved on PS4 games and heard of issues with downloading that save data to the PS5’s ssd... it’s fine 95% of the time but I don’t wanna give the possibility a chance of ****ing up my PS5. As a result, the only time I’ll use my PS5 is for PS5 games... or PS4 games I’m yet to start.

@colonelkilgore I'm pretty sure that was fixed not long after launch. There are games which don't allow progress to carry over from the PS4 version to the PS5 version, but that is different from playing the PS4 version on your PS5. As long as you have the saves backed up to the cloud, you should be fine.

@Bentleyma- I never used to be bothered about 4K and all that, but now having experienced it first hand for a period of time, I can definitely notice it more. Everyone is different though, and some have a more severe reaction to game being at a lower frame rate for instance.

@JohnnyShoulder I’m sure it probably would be fine but I have no need to risk it even if the probability is infinitesimal... I got my PS3, PS4 and PS5 all hooked up, so I’ll just play anything that I’ve already started on the 4 to avoid the element of doubt.

It also negates unneeded hours of use on the 5 which ‘could’ prolong its life cycle. I didn’t even unbox my 4 for almost a year, even though I bought it at launch and it still works fine today, while a few of my friends who also bought at launch had to renew over the last 18 months or so.

In all probability I am WAAAAAYYY over-cautious but it’s never steered my wrong.

@colonelkilgore Yeah buying a console at launch only not to unbox it for that long is maybe being a tad over cautious. I probably wouldn't have bought one in the first place until I knew I was ready to use it.

@JohnnyShoulder nah I just didn't unbox the 4 as I was planning on moving house and there wasn't anything in particular I fancied playing on it. Just felt it was a pointless exercise to go through unboxing and hooking it up when I'd be reboxing it less than 12 months down the road.

I wanted it just incase a game so good released that I wouldnt be able to resist the urge to play it... one didn't.

I'm not someone who gets overly excited about tech and has to fiddle with it without necessity. When I got into uni on a film-making course, that summer I bought a £3500 camera... didn't unbox it until the morning of the video production class when we'd first be using the camera 3 or 4 months later.

@colonelkilgore So why did you even buy the console in the first place?

@JohnnyShoulder as I said, in case anything released that I really wanted to play. You seem to have a problem with me buying things 🤣...

JohnnyShoulder

@colonelkilgore Just curious that's all, as doing something like that is pretty alien to me. A substantial purchase like that I would only ever buy it if I was gonna use it pretty much straight away and do a bit of research on it beforehand to see what was available and coming soon. I've never had a lot of money to play around so always been a bit more careful about what I buy.

@JohnnyShoulder I knew I'd want both a PS4 and a PS5 well before they launched having had each playstation before... and also was well aware of a lean first year for most consoles too. It worked out in both cases too... in the case of the PS4 I had the world's coolest bedside table for the period leading up to my house move. And as for pre-ordering my PS5, I've avoided any wasted time and subsequent anxiety I may have felt at trying and failing to purchase one like most people have done since launch.

@JohnnyShoulder remove 'brush holder' and we might be getting somewhere.

Only for old sh** though, it can't deal with new sh** 😜.

Bentleyma-

@colonelkilgore I wouldn’t leave a console for a year without using it, but I have bought loads of games I haven’t played yet. I bought games like Immortals Fenyx Rising and Yakuza: Like A Dragon and I’ve not got around to them yet.
