Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Don't most SE consoles come from games that are either published by Sony/exclusive to the system or at the very least have some kind of exclusive content (I didn't look it up or anything but the last few I remember are Spider man, GOW, Destiny 2, maybe a COD)? Does RDRII have PS only content?

I don't think SW Battlefront II had any exclusive PS4 content.

Probably no added value to the package because Rockstar wants you to buy their crap instead.

It sounds like they have some timed exclusive stuff, which is typical marketing agreement crap.

Good for them. It's about time that they listened to people screaming about this. I wouldn't be surprised if they already lost some people switching to the other platforms.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

The next PlayStation is already in the works, says Sony's new president.

Five years ago, in 2013, the PlayStation 4 launched. If history is any indication, we're due for a new PlayStation in the next five years or so.

Sony apparently agrees: "At this point, what I can say is it's necessary to have a next-generation hardware," new Sony president Kenichiro Yoshida told the Financial Times in a recent interview.

Yoshida stopped short of calling the console "PlayStation 5," but it's widely expected to be the name for Sony's next PlayStation console.

Most interesting is the fact that Yoshida referred to the new console as "next-generation hardware."

Rather than focusing on streaming games over the internet — a la Netflix — Sony is apparently working on a more powerful box for running prettier games.

It's the traditional format for the video game business: Produce a new, more powerful game console every 5 to 10 years that's distinct from previous hardware generations.

The PlayStation was succeeded by the PlayStation 2; the PlayStation 2 was succeeded by the PlayStation 3; and the PlayStation 3 was succeeded by the PlayStation 4. Each was its own hardware "generation," more capable than the previous generation.

Both Sony and Microsoft altered that cycle this generation by releasing half-step upgrades in the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, respectively. Neither outright replaced the base console — instead, they offered better graphics and performance for the same games.

Sources speaking with the Financial Times said that the next PlayStation console, "might not represent a major departure from the PS4." That's not such a surprise: More than ever, players are demanding that their digital game libraries carry forward.

It wouldn't be a huge shock to hear that the PlayStation 5 could play all PlayStation 4 games — especially those purchased digitally. But don't expect the PlayStation 5 any time soon.

"We will use the next three years to prepare the next step," PlayStation head John Kodera said back in May, according to The Wall Street Journal, in a reference to the PlayStation 4's successor. That puts Sony's next console on track for launch somewhere in the vicinity of 2021.

Given that the PlayStation 4 continues to sell tremendously well, it's no surprise that Sony would want to hold off for as long as possible. Microsoft's Xbox One is in a distant second place, and Nintendo's Switch is in a league of its own.

There's at least one other good reason that Sony isn't moving on from the PlayStation 4 just yet — the PlayStation 4 Pro exists.

Less than two years ago, Sony launched the PlayStation 4 Pro: A more powerful update to the PlayStation 4. It plays the same games, but makes them look prettier and load more quickly.

It's a half step up, in terms of horsepower, from the PlayStation 4, but it's a meaningful mid-point between the PlayStation 4 that went on sale in 2013 and the PlayStation 5 that's expected around 2021.

I'd be astonished if this gen lasts 8 years. I really don't think 2021 is likely.

I dunno, the PS4 has remained pretty active with exclusives and multi-console is still going strong and sales don't appear to be slowing. 2021 will be here in no time, and hopefully they'll have the whole "Are devs going to move toward raytracing" shite will be figured out by then. ... though I just want a game console with a 1080 gtx innit.

They're probably setting an outer bound, but 2019 doesn't seem likely either; we'd have heard more rumors about it by now. 2020 is a possibility, but don't think Sony wants to commit to a date this far out.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Just to clarify that Kingdom Hearts package package is just a re-release of the two existing Kingdom Hearts bundles in to 1 package and both of them have been regularly on sale for $20. It also doesn't contain 9 games. It contains 6 games and just the cinematics/cut scenes for the other 3.

PSN Name Change coming

https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018...-program-soon/

We’re happy to announce that we will soon begin testing the long-awaited feature that will allow users to change their PlayStation Network Online ID from their PlayStation 4 system. The PSN Online ID Change feature beta will be a part of the PlayStation Preview Program, and will become available to select users that have pre-registered as testers for previous PS4 system software betas.

During the preview program, you will be able to change your online ID as many times as you want. The first change is free, and changes after that will cost $9.99 USD / CAD. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost $4.99 USD/ CAD after the first change. Changes to online ID can be made through the Settings menu or via the Profile page of your PS4.

Hopefully the store will be more functional; quicker and straightforward, instead of the laggy shitshow they've had for so long.

2021 would be great for me. I just bought a PS4 Pro last year. I'm not ready to move on to the next one just yet. Give me three more years with the Pro and I will be happy.

^^ This confirms my desire to get a Pro now instead of holding off. I'm thinking Black Friday could be a good time.

I agree. I also think they need to take their time and offer a true upgrade to this gen.
