  1. Very positive hands on article…. https://mixed-news.com/en/playstation-vr-2-hands-on/
  2. Not so sure, I have the elite pad series 1 and 2 and tried the 4 paddles and just found it clunky. Jump, crouch/slide, reload and sprint I’m imagining would be the 4 functions that would be handy on them. I generally only use for Jump and Crouch/Slide on paddles. Sprint I’ve always been ok with L3. Reload I can see an argument for which can be swapped to a bumper button if you really don’t want to let go of the right stick ever. Going flawless in Destiny and Destiny 2 many many times with just the standard Dualshock 4 or Dualsense I would say shows that the paddles aren’t 100% necessary but absolutely convenient when you have them. How did your PS4 pads fall apart? Only issues I had was initially analogue stick wear and then reduced battery life but nothing else. Also when it comes to the digital triggers you can usually swap the bumper button inputs with the trigger inputs then reverse them in game and it gives you instant trigger pulls. The bump stop on the Dualsense edge can then give you short press. I done this on the PS4 for Destiny but to be honest I wouldn't say it was necessary either.
  3. I though it was always only a guaranteed launch week delivery and not launch day? The Dualsense Edge was “guaranteed launch day delivery” yet most people got them the day after. Hopefully they get the VR shipment out in time.
  4. I would have to strongly disagree, especially that Sony hasn’t designed this for FPS games, yes they would also consider functionality for other games but they would absolutely know their target audience and the reason for this type of controller (mainly anyway). Other games can utilise this type of controller too, racing games for shifting gears and I use it on Rocket League too. My PS4 scuf was made of cheese. Analogue sticks wearing out, paddles cracking and eventually snapping. The screws for the paddles were tiny allen key screws that rounded the first time you tried to remove. The hair triggers on mine the little dials were loose and span round and popped out. I still have the controller but it doesn’t work properly, none of the face buttons work just the analogue sticks. All for only £160 (may have been 170). The button mapping with the magnet worked ok but the software integration of the new pad is very welcome. If you have saw the level of customisation it puts the scuf to shame. being able to control the deadzone of the sticks and control the speed of the stick reaching full range of motion. Profile mapping, party audio control (although not with the pulse wireless headset 😵‍💫) Not sure what the new scuf’s have so can only speak from my experience. Also saw the scuf FPS PS5 controller is £250 😮
  5. I don't think they can, from what I understand the games would need work to translate over to PSVR2. That really comes down to the developer for each game. There are some devs doing this like Owlchemy Labs - offering updated versions for free.
  6. I'd argue that yes Xbox have done well with XB1 - XBSX with smart delivery but original Xbox and 360 BC is slim on titles a lot of which don't interest me. One thing they have excelled at is upres and increasing framerates for the older titles. PSVR1 relying on different tracking hardware is really the issue. I'm sure most of the games will be ported for PSVR2 but they will most likely be asking for ££ to upgrade.
  7. Resident Evil Village is £17.49 on the PS Store for anyone that was waiting on a sale. Just waiting on a No Mans Sky sale now, hopefully happens before launch.
  8. Got mine also, first impressions. Nice build, doesn't feel as well crafted as the Elite series 2 pad. The face buttons are much shorter travelled and a bit clicky/crunchy in comparison to the regular pad. D-Pad feels the same Analogue sticks make a loud clicking noise when moving from centre. Grips on triggers are nice, never had an issue with grip on regular ones but these feel good. Nice tactile feel. Touchpad is an improvement, I use it in GT7 to show or hide my ghost mid race as an example and the button press feels and works better. The convex/dome analogue sticks feel great with GT7, can be more precise with control. Menus and customisation are easy to follow and plentiful.
  9. I'm not sure if anyone has made a claim against this as I was surprised also but if you have a look on their website it states 180 day warranty in the UK - IIRC it was only 90 days when I got mine for the PS4 back in 2015 ish. Just as a cost comparison also I'm sure I paid £160 - whatever that is adjusted for inflation the Edge isn't too bad as it will definitely be better quality and has much more features.
  10. There is a lot being said regarding the ability to replace the analogue sticks. Mainly criticism. One point i’d make, if you have ever had a scuf controller or even the Xbox Elite pads. They haven't been reliable. But worst of all they all shipped with a 90 or 180 day warranty. Yes not even 1 year warranty. (Microsoft has now put a 1 year on the series 2 pad) My scuf analogue sticks wore down so fast, the paddles constantly breaking and had to be replaced. All out of my own pocket. My Elite pads have been good except my series 2 the rubber cover on the trigger adjustment has came off leaving a really sharp plastic nub. It is now outwith warranty. In 366 days (if Sony offers one year warranty) you could be out of pocket another £210 or have a paperweight if you get stick drift. I feel like the ability to replace is great but only after the warranty period. None of which justifies the cost of entry mind you. The core Xbox Elite Series 2 is an absolute bargain in comparison.
  11. The game is pretty much dead to me now mind you. Charging a controller is actually something i am more used to since i enjoy long gaming sessions.
  12. Is that at the point you get the notification to charge, where the empty battery symbol is flashing? Mines seems to last another 90mins when this happens. I really believe they could adjust the point it tells you to charge, it feels like it kicks in when the controller still has 30-40% charge but the graphic says its empty. My Edge also hasn't arrived, shipped but DPD haven’t received it. Like many others.
  13. This was a decent hands on video with good (and slightly bad) feedback...
  14. Let’s hope it was already agreed before the Microsoft buyout as I’ve never played it but always thought it looked decent. I’ve bought Skyrim 3 different times (360, Switch, PC) a 4th in VR would be my last time surely?
  15. That's exactly what it is for but it is designed for the US plug and not the UK plug.
  16. Your parcel should be delivered by robert between 16:51 and 17:51. So near yet so far 😭
  17. I may have cancelled in favour of a Deck only but my 512 is Q2 2022 so kept my preorder. Looking forward to Metroid and the Pokemon remasters in Nov in OLED and in handheld so why not. Also if the rumours are true Windwaker HD at somepoint.
  18. It just doesn't work at all for me. On the first one after I have done everything it stops giving me any instructions after telling me to play about with the camera again. Then on the basic flight controls one it asks me to pitch using the left analogue stick to lift the plane and it refuses to recognise that I am doing it even though on screen and in game I am actually doing it. So confusing.
  19. Anybody tried the flight training on Xbox? It seems all kinds of broken for me. Doing what it tells me and it just ignoring that i've done it.
  20. Paranoid? It's in black and white. Edited to include an article from today, nice to see it being called out by the press. https://www.scotsman.com/news/opinion/columnists/does-the-snp-have-a-rangers-problem-murdo-fraser-3333330
  21. Firstly let me offer up my opinion on the events, the fighting and trouble was disgusting and it shouldn't happen. The whole "trash the place", there was litter on the ground after it, just like any other mass gathering whether organised or not. It barely makes the front page if it's anybody else. There was other mass gatherings on the lead up to and even the very day after the Rangers fans gathered but nothing was mentioned about it. It's far from the finished article. There are many layers of predetermined behaviour that was ready to be deployed for the day Rangers lifted the trophy. The entire argument that it was a sectarion, anti-irish, anti-catholic march is disgusting. Theres no evidence of this, no proof, no arrests for it and yet it has been portrayed as fact by the government and the media. Rangers FC were criticised wrongly for not contributing enough to the events that unfolded. When in fact they had opened up a dialog with the police and the SNP administration leading up to the 15th May. They offered to allow 10k fans into the ground to take them off of the streets as a solution. It was rubbished and ignored as a solution because of COVID when literally days later there was fan zones set up for the euros. Even things like the (ex) Justice Minister himself and an elected official stirring up the same sectarian rhetoric about a fake tiktok video. The JM actually said the players should be removed from the club. Really? This was headline news. The police confirmed there was no criminality found after investigation but no no no, not good enough they had to confirm it was fake which they did because an SNP elected official actually submitted a freedom of information act request. Hilarious. Even the Scottish Conservatives had something to say on the matter afterwards. I'm going to just leave it here as I don't see anyone caring and to be honest I didn't really want to get into it all on here but I could see some prejudices in the responses when I mentioned Rangers in here. I was just wanting to see if anybody had saw the Rangers - Real Madrid game.
  22. In my defence I did say there was many layers to it.
  23. These headlines are 17 days apart. Sturgeon or her administration did not condemn the behaviour of the Scotland fans or raise any issues of sectarian behaviour of the Scotland fans during their travels despite many pro-IRA and anti-English chants being well documented. Some examples.... And lets not forget there was no immediate COVID spikes because of the Rangers fans gathering but lets look at the euros.... The FM decided to speak out about it all after she and her government were accused of hypocrisy...https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/7328227/nicola-sturgeon-tartan-army-rangers-anti-catholic/ She said the issue with Rangers gatherings were to do with the damage caused (again ignoring the damage caused by the Tartan Army) and also Anti-Catholic abuse.... Well now here is two separate FOI requests made to police Scotland which completely contradict the vile rhetoric she spews... Nicola Sturgeon also never misses an opportunity to promote anything positive about Scotland, how about the 2021 worlds strongest man being Scottish and a proud one at that? Well she has never once mentioned it, unfortunately for Tom Stoltman he wears the wrong jersey... And that's where I will leave it for now. Next up i'll dive deeper into the SNP's demand for sectarianism outstripping the supply as the are desperate to drive division within Scotland.
