Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

oh man. Ratchet & Clank: A Rift Apart is glorious. Put it on for a bit, killed my first mini-boss. looks and feels so good. this is a great platformer or whatever you want to call it. i always thought these jump around to different structures was a platformer. but, this was so much fun of what i've played thus far. looked simply divine. Crisp and colorful and lush with activity. between this and GoW has already made this purchase worth it!

Here's the answer :
Mafia there has just been pulled. It shows as in my Collection but locked. So no, if a game is about to go away and you grab it before it does, then you still can't play it once it leaves the service.
What do you mean "purchase"?

Are you spending money to own it?

Or just downloading it to play it as part of PS Plus? (You don't own any of those games)

Do these games usually leave the service? Like the ones I downloaded for free, I won’t need to purchase them in future, will I? Some games don’t even give me option to buy, which is odd. I know with MS, even if free via GamePass, can still buy.

The PlayStation Plus Collection games and the three free PlayStation Plus Essential games should be yours to keep as long as you subscribe to PlayStation Plus. The games that you download from PlayStation Extra/Premium are not and are subject to removal like any shows that leave Netflix/Hulu/HBO Max, etc.

You get three free PS4/PS5 games ever month with PlayStation Plus. You have to add them to your library before the end of the month or you lose them.

Nioh 2, Lego Harry Potter and Heavenly Bodies. You have to go through PlayStation store and add them manually. They will not show up in your library until you add them. You don't have to download them, just add them to your library. If you don't add them by the end of the month, you lose them.

Just claiming them, the same way you do for free PS Plus games. You get an email ďThank You For Your PurchaseĒ, but no, you arenít spending any money, just claiming them.

lots of replies since this, so maybe answered. But will be fine for 1080p. But once you get into 4k & HDR you may get a different story. Its always a struggle getting 4K/HDR to work when setting something new up. TVs & Receiver ports don't all support 4k, plus got to deal with Cables & splitters/extenders like that. and it can be hard to troubleshoot.

I've never used the voice commands but I can understand why you wouldn't want the PS5, when in rest mode, constantly listening to whether or not you want to turn it on by voice.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Well, wouldn't it be using the mic on the controller for this?

If so, then when the controller is off, the mic is off and you simply turn the system on by hitting the PS button on the controller.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I ended up buying 2 more games:
Sonic Frontiers PS5 for $35
Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart PS5 (due to Decker’s peer pressure) $29.99

I’m probably done buying games until next Black Friday unless some Switch or Indie games go on sale at low prices.

Haha, yeah, I find R&C pretty boring but Rift Apart was excellent.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I’ll tell ya. This was pretty easy to put on and doesn’t look too bad imo. But, it does make a huge, better difference. Feels so good…

I do like the look of the contrasting purples.

that’s exactly what I noticed first. And, it does still let the galactic purple to shine through. Apparently there are some that wrap the whole controller. That would be a waste of a gorgeous controller color.

So CD Keys is having their Black Friday sale, but PlayStation Plus is $50.79. It's cheaper to buy it on the PlayStation store. I guess I'll get it there for $45.

? Plus is basically the Essential tier, but he even said that route is paying more than just getting it in the current PSN deal so don't even bother.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

If you bought anything from the Black Friday PlayStation Direct Sale, check your packaging. There is a 15% off coupon code for accessories and games (no consoles) on PlayStation Direct and a 10% off code for PlayStation Gear. The bad news is that you can only use the codes between 12/19/2022 and 2/28/2023. So we can't use them for extra savings on the Black Friday Sale.
