You said it looked "badass" which is what I imagine a 13 year old would say about seeing a console in black instead of white. I found that funny.

That was a good write-up. I ordered matte black and the middle skin, though I'm hoping putting on the middle skin is not like putting a screen protector on a phone. If it ends up like the reviewer said, not centered, etc. (or w/heaven forbid bubbles) I'll just toss it. The review also also said it's a little trickier to take the original off, and I would sure hate to snap something by mistake.

I saw it mentioned that these aren't even available on PS5 (obviously I won't miss it since I didn't even notice)

I honestly thought they stopped offering these 6 years ago.

Maquette doesn't look like the sort of game I would have purchased for $20, but as a freebie, it does look like it's worth spending a couple of hours on. That's enough for me.

Don't forget Ratchet and Clank (PS4) is also free (if you haven't already bought it):

^ Post 1999.

But I thought it was weird that it doesn't show as "Purchased" for me yet. I 100% definintely grabbed it with the PS Plus Collection, and (I thought) as a PS Plus freebie before that. In either case it showed as unowned on the website this morning, so I added it to my Library yet again.

Yeah, I have this on disc, but I'll nab this digital version to have ready to go on my PS4 - I'd actually love to play through it again.

I grabbed it, thanks. I only have Tools of destruction on PS3 disc, and I don’t think I ever finished it.

They rotate every month. Plus if you don't add it to your library even if you were subscribed, it doesn't count.

Ratchet and Clank aren't a PS Plus freebie but it has a time limit as well. At least that one, you should be able to make a PSN account (if you don't already have one) and add it to your library, though (through the crappy website)

If you have a PSN account, you just log into the website and add it to your library and it's yours as long as your membership is valid. You don't actually need a PS5.

I think I would have thought that if he said it looks dope more than the badass thing.

Hey everyone. New to the PS5 and have a quick question. On the Xbox within your purchase games, demos etc you can hit the option button and either hide or delete them from your purchased list. Is that something we can do with PS5.

I don't think so. But why would you want to hide the games that you have purchased from your Library?

Jesus...at this point can't they overnight it to the closest store to you so you can pick it up in person?

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I assume people can just guess by the weight of a package shipped by GameStop.

Back in the day, Geoff had to change the outgoing address for review screeners to writers here because people would see "DVD Talk" on the packages and swipe 'em.
