  1. I noticed randomly my acitivies and trophies had changed when I press the PS button. Hadn't noticed the splash screen page changing though

    Stock response today to my proof. Complete and utter arseholes. They even say as part of the DD guarantee I will be informed. I challenged this in my email before because there was no notification. They can't even be arsed to check the records for the actual letter they sent which said it was due to payment errors. I'm not angry at the price increase, I've been paying it for the best part of ten years (introductory offer seems a bit rich mind) but it's the lack of honest Comms.

    Magazines Direct really do suck. They are arguing with me that I've been charged £11.25 a quarter for a year but I've just provided a screenshot of evidence that it began in July and that follows a letter to tell me there was an issue taking some DDs and I was being billed slightly extra. Lets see how they respond to this!
  4. It is too saturated now with games so those friendships can't be striked up. You'd often bump into the same people on PGR2 from time to time and hence make friendships with them. Remember the random Cat and Mouse games when there was no playlist for it. Try organising that now in an open match.

    The Christmas issue is now always £1 more than the standard ones. It seemed to be a new Future policy applied some years ago to all of its titles; to do a 'premium' edition with some freebie or special edition. I guess they choose Christmas because they can flog a calendar each year and more sales as stocking fillers maybe. It is a weird thing though to have pricing different on one issue a year.

    Has anyone else who subscribes had a price increase to your quarterly DD without being advised? I had a letter in the post earlier in the Summer explaining there was a problem with the one DD payment which was as a result of a system error and therefore to cover a slightly extended period the charge would be £11.25 as a one-off. Anyway it turns out I've had two £11.25 payments taken and upon contacting the customers services, they've told me I'd been advised that my price was increasing from £8.99 to £11.25. They never mentioned this was permanent in the letter sent and they say my offer has now finished and I'm on a higher priced DD now. Well erm thanks for checking with me and blaming a technical problem with the system for this. Annoying because yes I've had that offer for the best part of a decade, so I get prices will go up but don't lie about it and blame a technical error collecting a DD!
  7. After such a long wait (made even longer by me ignoring this until I recently purchased it for £3.49 in the sale), I started it and I'm really underwhelmed by it. To the point I'm literally thinking of skipping it. The first two games were some of my favourites but perhaps I have rose-tinted glasses. The combat in this feels awful; the movement in general is slow and menus are clunky. The whole energy and food consumption, I just CBA with. I didn't want a super-modern Shenmue but I did want one to reflect changes in controllers now. After a few hours in, I just can't see it getting much better...I'd rather go and play a Yakuza game.
  8. Little Nightmares was on PS Now I think. Great to have Tony Hawk, that is two months on the trot with Crash 4 and TH that I've been wanting to purchase both when they get to a decent price.
  9. I was surprised to hear the word bastard during a cut scene therefore I guess that is why!
  10. I cannot get any of the DLC working with the original game, it always stays greyed out even when downloaded. Given up now. Going back to 30fps though from Miles Morales is a shock to the system.
  11. Edit - PS Now customers will go onto the top tier, makes more sense! Wonder how the conversion for those subscribing to Now and PS Plus will work? Or will you just get put onto the Extra tier automatically which is stingy since we've paid out more than the new service for both. I'm curious if this means the end of the monthly updates and going into a Gamespass style drip feed through the month?
  12. It seems since things were moved across to this new company that the service has got worse. Added to that the Royal Mail issues too.
  13. I only had issue 365 last week, but I also appreciate there are severe postal delays in my area and we only get posted letters approx once a week.
  14. This is my most played game too
  15. Is the HDMI cable 2.1? It doesn't seem to have any label to suggest so?
