Great deal. Limit 2. Guess I am gonna buy a bunch of legacy tables for Pinball FX after all.

Officially "Maybe"

Pinball FX makers answer blowback to new DLC scheme

New virtual currency, they say, will let players own tables across platforms

Decker, youíve got me looking into Pinnsll FX. Surprised that since itís free, it wasnít more prominent on PSN. That Addams family one is tempting.

It's a great table. I bought it nearly a decade ago when it was a Kickstarter for Pinball Arcade. They lost the rights to the Williams tables a few years ago to Zen, who make Pinball FX. I haven't bought that table yet for Pinball FX because it's full price at the moment bit I will eventually.

Pinball FX is like a shell where the individual tables are all DLC, but they do give you their original Wild West table.
They have two way to play the other tables : Buy them individually or in table packs, or buy a Pinball Pass, which is like an all-access rental. I don't rent DLC. With the discount you can get two packs of nine tables for $16 each (really $13 with Costco discount) for both the Star Wars and Williams packs. Getting 18 Williams tables for essentially $26 is a very worthwhile purchase. You can demo any table for 2 minutes if you want before purchasing. And I think they also give a free one-day Pinball pass to try them all out.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Speaking (as we recently were) of Costco deals, I went to the store today and see they have a bundle in stock. It's a Disc PS5, the God of War Ragnarok digital game code, a second PS5 controller (Starlight Blue), and a fast charging station. It's normally $599.99 but it's on sale for $549.99 through 4/14. That is a very good deal.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

What’s the next big exclusives coming only to PS5?

I have credit I’m itching to use. Almost impulsed Forspoken. Played the demo a teeny bit. It wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t sure. Like someone mentioned in that thread, when it comes way down in price.

Final Fantasy XVI in June.

Since no one really seems to announce release dates meaningfully far in advance anymore, the calendar across the industry is pretty barren from July and on. So itís anyoneís guess after that, but the rumor is that the next Spider-Man game is coming in/around September, per Venomís voice actor.

Do you own Spider-man or are you playing it on Plus? It's leaving on May 15th, so if you don't want to buy it, you should try to finish it.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

If you have both consoles, does it really matter if a game is an exclusive?

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Yeah, I suppose, but multi-console I stick to Xbox. I can’t even buy SM: Miles Morales. Not sure why that would be.

If you claim a game through PS Plus it shows like you own it and they often won't let you buy it while your account is active. You can probably buy Miles Morales Ultimate Edition which is now on sale for $39.99 and includes both games.

You can also just hang onto your credit as Spider-Man 2 almost certainly comes out in September (but you can't pre-order it yet)

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I think there’s just something weird about Miles Morales. When I was playing Spider-Man, half the time MM was unpurchaseable for some reason.

Yeah, the Miles Morales ultimate or any edition doesn’t seem purchasable on PS site.

Hey heads up for all PS Plus members: When you grab the free monthly game Sackboy's Big Adventure off the PS5, be sure to scroll over to the right where it says ADD-ONS. Click on that box and you can grab 43 free Sackboy DLC costumes, including PS characters like Kratos & Atreus, Drake & Chloe, Ratchet & Clank, Ellie & Abby, Ally & Sylens ( Lance Reddick). You do have to claim each one separately, which is time consuming and will fill up your email box like this :

You know what? You're right. I hadn't claimed the PS Plus version of Miles Morales because I own it on disc. I just did an experiment and grabbed it and now the Deluxe Edition with Spider-Man is unavailable for me (though I do already own Spider-Man Remastered digitally because I bought a disc version of Ultimate Edition which came with it).
