    Playstation Now

    And I've just realised that dropping my PS+ means I vcant play BloodBorne: Game of the year edition. I COULD use my physical disc version of the normal game but game saves aren't compatible across the two game versions. Sigh.

    Yeah agreed. The £1 convert all your xbox live gold to Game Pass Ultimate puts you on the highest subscription tier. £11 a month when that kicks in eventually (after 3 years). I'd expect Sony might try doing the same and doing a £70 a year all you can eat version.

    So becuuse of the above game save moving bullshit I'm going to just let my PS+ expire and not bother with PSNow either. Got plenty of digital games I've bought that will keep me happy till PS5 launches and I'll see what the situation is like then. I guess I'll just use a usb stick to move from one device to another. What a bunch of bellends.

    Having a unified cloud save backend would be nice. The game saves themselves are compatible. They just need to convince themselves that it's a worthwhile investment in dev time to writing something in the back end to just keep them all in sync. I can't think of any reason why a gamer would want games saves out of sync across devices or across PS+ and PSNow? Am I missing something?

    ffs Sony. https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/get-help/help-library/services/playstation-now/how-to-transfer-game-progress-between-playstation-now-and-playst/ So. Different systems depending on whether you're playing with PS+, PSNow Streaming or PSNow locally downloaded. STEP 1: Upload save data to PS Plus online storage Streamed PS Now game: start streaming the game > press the PS Button > [Application Saved Data Management] > [Saved Data on PS Now] > [Copy to Online Storage]. Downloaded PS Now game: highlight the application in [Library] > press the Options button > [Upload/Download Saved Data] > [Upload]. STEP 2: Download save from PS Plus online storage Once the PS Now save file is in online storage, you can simply download it from the cloud on another device to carry on playing: Streamed PS Now game: Start streaming the game > press the PS Button > [Application Saved Data Management] > [Saved Data in Online Storage] > [Copy to PS Now]. Downloaded PS Now game: highlight the application in [Library] > press the Options button > [Upload/Download Saved Data] > [Download]. For more information, please visit the PS Plus online storage guide. This is the Xbox steps Step 1: Play Game On Device. System syncs everything to cloud in the background ready to play onany other device seamlessly. The end.

    Wait what? No cloud saves with PS Now even though it streams the games from the cloud? That'd be a deal breaker for me. I am NOT paying for both. I have PS+ for another month or so, so not an immediate problem but that sounds so fucking daft to not have cloud saves with PSNow.

    Xbox Game Pass

    In fact I've just done this for a nephew who now has 33 months of GPU. He's also a big PC player so I'm sure it'll be used well. Since my kids and I are on Game Pass and so are most of my nephews and nieces (we all play each other lots) I think MS has our business locked down for the foreseable. That's pretty much what they're after rather than consoles sales. Out of all of us I'll likely also get a PS5 but the rest are now in the MS Ecosystem till 2023 with a huge amount of momentum needed to get them to leave.

    Are we expecting a drop in price for the next Sale?

    Xbox Game Pass

    If you use a VPN to apply credit to your account you can buy a brazillian 12 month gold subscription for £24 from CDkeys (sometimes they're even cheaper). That converts to 4months of Game Pas Ultimate. £6 a month for GPU? Yeah sure why not. If you haven't done the GPU £1 conversion trick then that means you could get 3 years gold and then convert it all to GPU for £73. About £2 a month equivelant. You'd be mad not to.

    Xbox Game Pass

    My kids and I have been playing a fair bit of World War Z. Basically Left 4 Dead but with a shit load more zombies. Excellent co-op game I thought. Probably gets samey after a week. Play Outer Wilds. I loved it. Puzzle solving through a solar system. Each planet has a story and puzzles to unravel. I'm also now playing through The Outer Wolds. Was getting a bit tired of it and then I found some weapons at level 400 which made things easir. Then I found a level 1000 light machine gun. Feels good to mow down the larger enemies I sneaked around previously. Story is really good.
  11. Yeah but that's just hassle with sorting out sales of consoles and re-doing wires. Buy all of them early-ish in the lifecycle and then pick and choose what you want from each. Big up front costs of course but that's it for that gen. You're sorted. Might be a problem this gen ifthe consoles end up being 500-600 each.
  12. WhEre'S tHe GaMePlay?
  13. Yup. Your primary xbox doesn't need to be actively signed in to let other play your games on it. Any other xbox needs your profile actively signed in to play your games. That's why you're getting signed out when your daughter has to sign you in on her xbox to play your games. The way I worked it out in the end was to game share the two kids together since I don't personally by THAT many games and my tastes are different to theirs. Then GamePass came along so I have a gamepass subscription and so does one of my kids. That's covers the 3 xboxes. Occasionally an EA access subscription gets thrown into the mix too depending on whats' on there. If you think that's fun, we also share 3 PS4's between us too. So sometimes you end up buying games a few times. I'd probably save more money by just offering to subsidise the next gen console purchase for their friends to ensure everyone is on the same console. Right now half their friends are on Ps4, half on Xbox One. All my nephews and nieces are on Xbox One. So either convince family to go Ps5 next gen (hard since we're all subbed to Game Pass) and see if their mates also jump across or persuade those Ps4 owning friends to come across to Xbox (they don't play 1st party Sony stuff).
  14. you can only gameshare with one of them I.e. you can only have one primary Xbox that allows anyone on that Xbox to play your games. I’m in the same situation.
  15. Exactly. Looking forward to devs doing some funky shit with all that power.
