I'd imagine someone who used the service and had the expansion pre-ordered, played the game and saw that the extra content was unlocked. Then the internet took over.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Concord (Firewalk) - Guardians of Crater City. Green dude is ehhhh but the other characters seemÖ fine. 5 vs 5 FPS. Live service multiplayer.

God of War: Ragnarok PC (Santa Monica) - I donít have this on console so Iíll pick this up on PC if I ever finish the first gameÖ on console.

Dynasty Warriors Origins (Omega Force) - samurai! Horses! Explosions! I dig it.

Infinity Nikki (Infold?) - cats and cute girls and photos. Neat. Didnít SWERY already make that kind of game?

Ballad of Antara (TipsWorks?) - Soulslike? I dunno.

Slydanceís Behemoth (skydance) - oh hey, PSVR2. FPS. The real heros are the monsters we met along the way.

Alien Rogue Incursion (Survios) - oh hey, PSVR2. ALIEN!! Eeeeek!

Marvel Rivals (NetEase/marvel) - PVP shooter. Super not into this at all.

Where Winds Meet (everstone) - giant enemy fishes?? Iím in.

Until Dawn remaster (Ballistic Moon) - great game. Hopefully the improvements are worth it, but seems kind of unnecessary. Not the original devs.

Path of Exile (grinding gear games) - this path is Not For Me(tm). Pretty graphics though.

Silent Hill 2 remaster (Konami/bloober) - yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Looks ok graphically I guess.

Monster Hunter Wilds (capcom) - not the hunter I wanted. Slay them beasts.

Astro Bot (team asobi) - fuck yes! More of the same gameplay but with expanded characters and such, in all the right ways. I want this now.

That Behemoth VR game looked cool, no way I could handle it though.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I need Astro Bot now but other than that pretty lackluster. The only other two games I'm interested in are Silent Hill 2 (which we've known about for years) and Infinity Nikki.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Iím super-excited the rumors were true about Astro Bot; probably the game Iím more excited about than any other on the 2024 calendar so far. And Iím okay that it doesnít look to support VR. Maybe itíll be a hit and inspire a remaster of the PSVR game, which Iíve never had an opportunity to play.

But that was the only knockout for me. Iíll probably pick up the Until Dawn remaster, and the (hopefully less choppy upon release) VR games are possibilities. Infinity Nikki looks gorgeous, but Iím not sure if itís for me, especially since Iím assuming itís a gacha-fest.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Most feel this SoP was a let down....we saw, another PvP Game like we don't have enough, more knockoffs of "Ghost of Tsushima & Souls" like games, two Horror Classics from the past and highlighting a major game going to PC.....Astro Bot was good for many out there.

II think any hope of seeing a Bloodborne Remaster is gone. If they had some real gems and WOW Games they're holding off revealing for awhile. I'm actually going to watch the XBox Showcase mainly for one game...Gears of War 6....and cross my fingers that they'll announce more games coming to PS5....and hopefully announce a Gears of War Fenix Remastered Collection that has been rumored for past few years.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Not that this is a particularly meaningful metric, but it just shows that people want more Astro Bot and are skeptical about yet another live service hero shooter.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

$60 for the PSVR2 to PC hub.
DisplayPort cable not included.




Some features not available:
PS VR2 was designed from the ground up specifically for PS5 ó so youíll notice that some key features, like HDR, headset feedback, eye tracking, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback (other than rumble), are not available when playing on PC. However, other high-fidelity and sensory immersion features of PS VR2 are supported, including 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), 110-degree field of view, finger touch detection, and see-through view, as well as foveated rendering (without eye tracking) and 3D Audio in supported games.

For clarification, Half Life Alyx will be playable on PSVR2 connected to a PC. It will not be playable on PSVR2 connected to a PS5.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

The 8K dream is dead


but in all seriousness, this totally makes sense. Nobody truly cares about 8K displays, and native 8K resolution in games is a pipe dream on even most high end PCs, let alone game consoles. 8K probably never should have been on the console box to begin with, but I donít imagine anyone will make a fuss about it or accuse Sony of false advertising or anything like that. The vast majority of people likely forgot that it was ever even a bullet point.

DLC for Astroís Playroom (the free game we all got with our PS5) may be coming as soon as today, based on some new trophies.

For anyone interested in what this is:

"There are five new secret Astro's Playroom trophies to uncover, each of which involves you hunting down a mysterious guest character that appears somewhere in Astro's world. The only catch is that you won't be able to unlock these trophies if you're trying to collect them in June 2024.
The new trophies want you to hunt down four special DLC characters, but at present, only one has been added to Astro's Playroom. The free DLC also comes with an expansion to Astro's PlayStation Labo section that contains a timer counting down to Astro Bot's PS5 release date in September 2024. One would suspect that as we get closer to the launch of this sequel to Astro's Playroom, we'll see more of these guest characters appear. There are also at least a bunch of new PlayStation hardware-themed collectibles to unlock from the Gacha machine, including the PSVR2."

The first character they released is from Bloodbourne and solving its puzzle gets you the first trophy.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I would say it's not worth it for most people.
I bought it because I needed back paddles for one specific game and that is the only game I use mine for.

If you do get one the first thing you should do is replace the backplate and add grips. Sony used some kind of padding on the inside of the grip that yellows and bubbles after a little while.

And mine also had a very slight drift in the right stick right out of the box. Luckily since the Edge has settings, I was able to adjust the deadzone for that stick to eliminate it that way (only because it was very minimal).

It's easily one of my ten favorite games on the PS5.
