Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the best looking games ever made and it runs great on the regular ps4

We don't need a ps5 for a while

........that and several other games look...and play just fine. I think the next "Horizon Dawn" game to produce a wow factor is going to be Hellblade. And we have plenty coming fall and into next year...Star Wars Battlefront 2 will blow people away...you can take that to the bank.

I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see new systems until like 2020.

Has Forbes ever had good information regarding video games?

We also don't NEED new iphones every year but yet they pump them out. If the new Xbox X is a huge enough step up in power and performance, it wouldn't surprise me to see Sony throw a counter punch.

Yeah. I can't imagine the next gen starting any earlier than 2019 or any later than 2020.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

How much of a leap can we expect in the next gen from the coming Xbox? I'm guessing it to be not much.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Yeah, still feels way too soon for another console as it seems that they can still squeeze some juice out of the PS4, at least console-exclusives still can.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

CPU performance is pretty weak with this current generation of consoles, which is why a lot of people were disappointed that the Xbox One X didn't move to AMD's Zen architecture. But I've always been in the boat of diminishing returns this generation, and things like the resolution bump to 4K aren't exactly mind blowing upgrades.

But yeah, can't imagine Sony is thinking of a PS5 already next year. I'd actually think the PS4 being such a huge success means they would want to ride this generation as much as possible and probably start pushing the PS4 Pro more in the upcoming year with a price drop and more advertising.

I bet that Destiny 2 white bundle is going to move some units.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Okay I been reading these rumors that the upcoming update 5.0 I believe it called would make it that PS4 backwards compatibility with PS1 games. Think it all bullshit but I see it when it come out.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

I just assumed PS4 was already BC with PS1 games since PS3 is.

Wasn't that just the first batch of PS3's though (the fat 40GB & 60GB versions)? Because after that, they dropped PS2 support, which I assumed meant PS1 support as well.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

PS2 support was done with HW using the same graphics chip, whereas the PS1 support was always software. That's my memory anyway, so all PS3s have PS1 support, but once the HW was removed to save money, the later PS3s no longer play PS2 games.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Yeah, just the first batch of PS3s, and the MGS bundles were full BC with PS2 games. But ALL PS3s, including the later Slims were BC with PS1 games.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Having some problems with wifi on my launch system. Several weeks ago I noticed wifi was not connected, and it needed a system update. I connected with an ethernet cable, got the system update (which required going into Safe Mode) Took several attempts to connect to wifi again, and everything seemed OK.

Yesterday I see wifi is off again. It downloaded a system update on Wednesday over wifi, but now will not connect again. It gives the usual error codes of time out, password incorrect, etc. I will have to try again to update in Safe Mode later.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Has anyone had any experience with a broken HDMI cord on their PS4? My cord got pulled hard from my PS4 by accident and I think the interal wires are screwed and busted. I'm way out of warranty too.

Do you mean the HDMI port on the PS4?

eBay has a guide, it requires soldering.

Amazon has some replacement ports for sale:
https://www.amazon.com/Interface-Con.../dp/B00Z4ZXSGO

I found this discussion thread about fixing the port:
https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/...oken+HDMI+Port


Also found a service for sending it in to get fixed:

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Well the wifi on my launch still works when it wants to, which is not often. We are in the process of painting the house, so it will be unplugged for a few days, but it looks like Sony wants be to upgrade to a slim or pro

If that is the only issue, why not use a PowerLine and just plug an ethernet cable into it instead?
