Yes they can, as well as any non-free games purchased and downloaded on that system. And they can play games online. But the other accounts won’t have their game saves backed up to the Cloud.

Thanks Decker. That sounds reasonable. Trying to figure out how best to add my 7 year old to the system without too much hassle/confusion.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

lately or once-in-awhile...I'll get one of these messages...."Are you 18, want to share a Hot Game together"...or something like that. Is there a way to block or even report these?

Well, do you? Sounds like a hot offer.

I say you take one for the team and investigate. Report your findings when you're done.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

I forgot how slow the Playstation 3 is at downloading/installing games. Last night I bought 7 Ratchet & Clank games and left it on overnight to download. 10 hours later it was still downloading the last one and most of these have less than a GB file size. You then have to manually click on each one to install and that has been taking 30 minutes to an hour each.

My PS4 downloads modern games with giant file sizes in less than an hour.

The PS3 is painful to use even for media purposes. Everything is much faster these days. I did like putting my music files on my PS3 back then and using it as a jukebox of sorts.

I actually did find two article, one being from 2018 though and probably has been patched/fixed.

The first one is on how to just Block and/or Un-Block Someone....https://www.playstation.com/en-nz/ge...-playstation-/

The second is actually from a story where people were getting messages that could Brick The PS4...from October 2018....apparently the PS4 couldn't read the message and would lock up. This just shows how to restrict your incoming messages....

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Why did you need to find articles? Just change your privacy settings so you only get messages from friends.

For someone that loves the PS4 so much, you don't seem to know a lot about it... or are you just not tech savvy at all?

I've never had these ...weird messages....before till recently. mainly left it open due to some games we play.....like Warframe....you get a message from someone not on friends list that was in a squad/group recently asking about your setup, helping them open up areas, what do you think of this and that weapon, character, etc......95%-98% of the messages are legit and have no problem with. Be a shame and a bit extreme to shut all those down over 2%-4% as*holes.....

I read that the wishlists are going away on the Playstation store. I'm not happy about that.

Me either. Wishlist seems like such a simple function to implement.

Sure people can use it to price watch and wait for sales, but on the flip side if I don't wishlist a game to buy later, I'll forget about it altogether and never spend the money at all.

https://www.cdkeys.com/playstation-n...a-digital-code

CD Keys has a 1 year membership to Playstation Plus for $29.99

https://www.cdkeys.com/playstation-n...a-digital-code

That's 1/2 regular price.

I let my last membership lapse probably in early 2020. So once I saw this price, I snagged it. It's worth it for this price.

I just noticed the store changes and was coming here to vent. Corvin, agree 100% I used wishlist for all of these things too. Now it is out of sight, out of mind.

I figured it would include MLB The Show 20, since I just bought it.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

So since PS5 has a "time played" feature you can check out your time played on PS4 games as well which is kinda fun to see. I've apparently spent 53 hours playing Resogun.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

We have 4 Dualshock 4 controllers paired to our PS4. One is lost. I bought 2 replacements. Neither will pair. I'm stumped.

I've tried 2 new controllers with 2 different USB cables in 2 different USB slots and tried the reset button under L2 on both. Nothing.

Last thing I can think of, can I not pair more than 4 controllers, or something? Because the lost one is lost. It's likely around here somewhere and it worked well. Should I connect the other three, "forget" this lost one, and try the others? I see 6 places for controllers, 4 occupied and 2 empty. I don't know if this move makes things worse. Edit: tried that, nothing happened.

We want to do 4-player Sonic Racing as a family and I'm stumped.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Is there a way to unpair devices in the settings?

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Yeah, I did a "forget device" on the missing controller to see if that frees up a slot, or something, but that didn't change anything.

Have you tried leaving your 2 new controllers plugged in for an hour or so to charge? It could be there is some sort of power threshold where it is not letting them be paired for the first time if they are almost dead?
