@Th3solution @colonelkilgore I've certainly save scummed before and will do so again if it means saving myself a ton of time. I still don't understand why they've not kept the ability to copy to USB for PS5 games though, it's just weird. Unless they use some magical multi-dimensional storage format that can't be represented on the same drive as PS4 saves then there's surely no reason to omit it. The cynical view is that they want to push people to use PS Plus, which really is entirely plausible.

@Th3solution yeah, it’s nice to have a fresh start. If it’s possible, everything does seem to be running a little faster and snappier. The matter of re-installing everything is a bit of a pain but it’s allowed me to clean up some games that I really wasn’t getting anyways.

@render But then you couldn't have PS4 and PS5 game saves on your internal SSD, which is the case now. It's more likely what you said last about pushing people to PS Plus. It's not a big deal to me as I would be subscribed to it anyways for the free games.

@KilloWertz Which is why it seems all the stranger. I’ve not got a problem with cloud saves requiring PS+ generally but I think if they are tied to that there should be a free alternative, and there just isn’t.

Somebody posted some leaked images from a new Silent Hill game on Twitter and they were DMCA'd swiftly... which kinda proves they're legit?

Got an email about the alpha for that weird MultiVersus game. It’s gonna be awful but I thought I might as well sign up for it. I’m sure it’ll be an experience.

@nessisonett It could be one of those things where it is so bad it is good? Did you ever play PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (man, that title hasn't aged well lol) on ps3? I never had a ps3 so did not experience it. But it comes up occasionally on podcasts and stuff for titles Sony should bring back.

@JohnnyShoulder I have the Vita version and I really don’t get the love. The fundamental gameplay just isn’t fun. Something like Smash Bros has a great gameplay base, whereas PSASBR just doesn’t.

The clearly fake rumours about a Bloober Team remake of Silent Hill 2 are still somewhat horrifying. I quite liked Layers of Fear but The Medium proved that they should not be given Silent Hill, especially not a remake of such an important game. Hit me right in the same place as ‘Quantic Dream Star Wars’.

@nessisonett i was also confused about them making a star wars game but apparently it will be a typical quantic dream style game and i think that can actually work well for star wars.

if it ever comes out that is.

@jdv95 Well according to David Cage, all the women in his games are ‘wh*res’ and ‘at Quantic Dream, we do not make games for f*gs’. So rather different reasons that I would rather they didn’t touch Star Wars but the same energy!

@nessisonett yeah i heard about that to. it's part of the reason sony did not buy them.

i think quantic dream ones pitched a star wars game to sony but they said no.

@nessisonett It's a shame that he has to be a total *****, but at the same time if they continue to make games I love, I will continue to play them. I obviously don't agree with him and what has likely happened at his company, but I loved Heavy Rain when I played it back on the PS3 and Detroit: Become Human was one of my favorite gaming experiences I've had in a while when I finally played that late last year. Say what you will, but games matter more to me than what goes on with the company and it's founder.

That is a lot of demand...

OK this is getting sort of strange and kind of ridiculous. For some time now I can find PS5 consoles in major retailers here but only in 700 euro bundles with games I already have!!!!! Apparently they also sell them. Some of them have warnings that you this is a bundle and you cannot return part of it in the store. The most common one is PS5 Disk Edition + Gran Turismo 7 + Horizon FW + second controller for 700 euros.

I have all those games already. It is still "hard" to "just" buy a 400 euro digital edition or a 500 disk one. I know you could sell the games somewhere else but still you loose money and time. You also have to spend out the 700 euros though.

@belmont Yeah, the bundles can be good for new adopters to the ecosystem, but overall I find them annoying.

And if my math is correct, buying that bundle actually only saves 10 euros. Furthermore, if you consider that HFW is only 60 euros for the PS4 disk with a free upgrade to PS5, then it’s the same price as buying each component separately. Not to mention that DualSense are currently on sale right now during State of Play for €60 so it’s actually more expensive to buy all the stuff through the bundle than buying them separately — and you’d get to choose your DualSense color if you bought it yourself! 😄

But if that’s the only way you’re going to get a PS5, I guess it’s better than no PS5 at all.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@belmont I managed to grab a PS5 yesterday and I had to get a bundle with Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7. I already own Horizon Forbidden West and I’m not really a fan of racing games, so I was a bit hesitant to buy the bundle, but decided to in the end.

@KidBoruto I’ve owned a PS5 before, but sold it due to issues with my internet. I already own games like Demon Souls and Returnal. I’ll be buying Ghostwire: Tokyo this weekend though.

@Bentleyma Ghostwire: Tokyo honestly has some of the best graphics I’ve experienced on PS5. Everything is ridiculously detailed. It’s a real showcase. I settled on the ‘high frame rate quality with v-sync enabled’ mode.
