PlayStation 5 - Next gen is expensive

Sony needs to implement some sort of automated filter options so I do not have to squint my eyes to notice quality games through all this Coffee Run, Oktober Fest Run, Jumping Taco, Jumping Donut Turbo trash. Right now there's SIX carbon copy Flappy Bird games, each one the exact same game but with a different color scheme.

They’ve tacitly acknowledged it by changing the default new games filter from ‘release date’ to ‘best selling’ but that’s a band-aid at best. Feels like the worst company this could’ve happened to as Sony are so bloody sluggish when it comes to implementing software/UI solutions.

I'd love if all of the various storefronts had a simple "never show me this again" option so the stores were easier to navigate.

Steam has an ignore option. Which it sort of needs so you can try to get rid of the porn that has infected that store*

 

But the best thing about their ignore feature is it also has a "played on another platform". This is genius because I want to stop seeing the same things I already own but I also want Steam to know I play this stuff and it should influence my recommendations.

 

* Whilst you can choose to hide the adult content entirely with some options it's not clear to me that this cannot end up hiding some non-porn games too.

Playstation Store has a new 'blockbuster sale' on with some of the bigger titles having decent discounts until the end of September.

Gran Turismo 7 is £52.49, and - with a CD Keys top-up - got it for a total of £46.48. Way cheaper than I've seen it previously. 👍

Can anyone please confirm if the Horizon: Forbidden West codes that CD Keys are selling for £27 get you the full PS5 version of the game? They say PS4 / PS5 but I'm not sure if that just means it's the PS4 version that'll work on PS5 and I've completely lost track of how Sony are handling upgrades to digital games.

The version I bought is called HORIZON FORBIDDEN WEST PS4/PS5 (EU & UK), which, when claimed, let me download either the PS4 or 5 version. But I paid £29.99.

I wonder will it play Blu-Ray video or if it'll be limited to just game discs. Everything plays off the SSD anyway so its not like they'll need some super high speed connection between the drive and the console.

Isn’t that basically just the PS5 Digital version, what am I missing here? 

The articles suggesting that every PS5 will be a Digital Edition model so there will only be one model being manufactured after this update gets introduced.

This reminds me of that guy who sold quite a few people on here - myself included - a 360 HD DVD drive and then skipped out with the money.

 

Anything else remember that? Circa 2006/2007 I think.

Easier to manufacture just one model of PS5 and box a separate drive in for the old school?

Bill Gates? 


Lols. No it was a guy in the trading folder who scammed quite a few people on here. I think he sent me a message along the lines of “haha nothing you can do about it pal”

The rumour is that this is a new PS5 design coming out tale end of next year. 

If it's true, it's like the slim model, and to get it all small and slim they'll be removing the disc drive and offering it as an extra.
