Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

I finally figured this out today. I got tired of the kids not having controllers charged, which is why I got the new pair to begin with a few months back. I found a blog with a solution I hadn't heard of before and followed their steps. I held down the PS4 power button for ten seconds to power it off. After the lights stopped, I unplugged it for three minutes. Then, I replugged it in, plugged in the USB cable, plugged in the controller, turned on the PS4, and was able to sync both of the new controllers, plus the one that got unpaired and the lost controlled showed up so I paired that, too. Now we have 6 all paired and ready to go.

RIP to the PS4 games in 2025?

Full Article

https://www.ign.com/articles/sony-ex...xduV-h_nMNt4kQ


At the latest Sony investor presentation, Sony revealed that it plans to be done with PS4 games by 2025. Additionally, the company also explored the growth they’ve had in the PC and mobile realms, and used numbers to examine the past and predict the future of releases.



In the 2019 fiscal year, almost all Sony's releases were on PS4. But the estimated spread for 2022’s fiscal year accounts for Sony’s recent success on PC, and includes their foray into mobile as well. For 2025? There is nary a mention of the PS4. Instead, half the graph broadcasts releases for the PS5. Sony expects that PC should account for around 30% and mobile 20% for the rest of that fiscal year’s releases.

That's just for first-party titles though, right? Third party studios may opt to release a PS4 version for longer.

Also, that's still almost 2 1/2 years away, and will be a little over 4 years after the release of the PS5, and 11 years after the PS4 launched. That'd be like Nintendo still making games for the NES in 1996.

Since we're talking about financial years where Sony is concerned, "2025" starts on April 1st, 2024. Not that it makes a huge difference, but still...!

Yeah, no different than any other gen. Most companies move on but you'll still see your Maddens, FIFAs, CoDs (normally anyway).

Hell I want to say they were still releasing Just Dance games for the Wii almost up until the Switch came out.

Longer than that, even! The last Just Dance game on the Wii came out in November 2019 ó 13 years after the console launched.

​​​​​Two years AFTER the Switch launched. That's pretty wild. Made it through the entire WiiU lifespan and into the Switch generation.
