I know MLB forced Sony to make The Show multiplatform, but this is still pretty wild to see.

Who is getting Monstrum Nox for Playstation 4 due to the unbearable waiting time for the PC version? I think I am leaning towards waiting, but not sure what I will do come friday

What do the Switch owners think? Does nintendo have a good cloud system to allow that?
Nintendo cloud sucks, and the fact that they choose which games can and cannot use it is bullshit.

As for a Lite, it depends. If only one person will be using them, then yeah, but setting up accounts and game licensing and permissions and what not is a pain in the ass.

So the demo of the new MH is not playable anymore ?

And on another note, I must be the only fool to want a PS5 more for back compat that the anemic release schedule. I mean, all this Sega mess reminded me of Sakura Wars, Fist of the North Star and Judgement. Yeah, Judgement would be 30 fps (?), but I don't really dig the remaster new lighting.

To me, the new lighting looks really bad. I would say waiting for a mod on PC after it releases on steam and window store.

In additions, buying a PS5 for the backward compatibility is not a bad idea. I have compiled a fairly long list for the PS4 games that I want to play on PS5.

The pacing of Origami King is soooooo slow. It would heavily increase my enjoyment of the game if I could skip or speed up dialogue text.

nintendo always tells us they're not announcing a new device before announcing a new device
switch pro coming soon!
They won't release new Switch unless it comes alongside new big game like MP4, BOTW2 or SMTV.

You need something to show off power bump, improved battery etc.

So it won't happen until Fall at the earliest.

Yes and no. When cloud save is compatible with a game, it's as good as Steam Cloud these days, other than the fact that you need to pay for Switch online to use it.

It will keep both devices in sync, automatically uploading and downloading to each device. I think Xbox does that, but it feels less elegant (i.e. it does the sync when you start the game, not automagically in the background), but PlayStation only allows for one way traffic (so to "sync", you need to manually download to your device) - I'm not sure if that changed more recently, but my experience is that this wasn't available when I last used their service.

The problem with having two Switch consoles is that developers are allowed to block cloud saves, and some of the reasons why cloud saves are blocked are insane.

Is this related to Kowloon's Gate ?
I've had a quick look and it doesn't look like it is.
The game is a remaster of the PlayStation 2 title Kowloon Youma Gakuen Ki, which was released only in Japan in 2004.
However, it looks like the followup to "Kowloon's Gate" is planned for later this year according to wiki.
Kowloon's Gate on Wiki

A sequel, Kowloon's Rhizome: A Day of the Fire has been announced for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows, and is set to release in Japan in Fall 2021

It is never healthy to see a market dominated by one company. I wish Sony had tried harder in Japan. Their western-oriented strategy gives the whole Japanese market to Nintendo.

Sony is not making it easy for me. Im interested in claiming Destruction All-Stars (DAS) buy buying 1 month of PS Plus since the game will cost 70€ when it leaves (unless Sony changes their minds). However, 8euro to grab a game that for all I know might be dead or I wont find good by the time I get a PS5 is costly and Im don't play online on my PS4 and I already own Concrete Genie on PS4 and Control UE on Steam.

So I will wait and see, hopefully Sony announced it will go F2P or something before it leaves Plus.

My observations is also that the game isnt all that good and have lots of annoyances. Some PS5 owners on r/ps5 thought it would be the next Rocket League, which is weird since it's only on a machine that has 5 million sold and Twitch doesn't seem to care about the game much at all.

Sometimes I feel Sony needs to realize that certain exclusives they make will live better by going to PC (DAS) or is more tailored towards PC (Dreams, Demons Souls).

Food for thought: Bloodborne has currently more viewers on Twitch than Demons Souls..

Sadly they won't do much since they are having massive success globally. They've stopped trying really hard ever since the PS3 and it seems to be getting worse when it comes to Japan.

I really don't see the benefit of using PS+ for PS5 without having a PS5. The benefit of it is using the vault of games they put out and actually putting your console to use.

I don't think you are missing out on much. By the time you pick up a PS5...games like Control and DAS will be very cheap on sales or even part of that PS+ vault heh. Assuming ofc Sony continues to build that vault and doesn't abandon it. Control is also running at mixed settings for PS5. It won't ever be as impressive since the Ray tracing and DLSS on the new consoles is basically nonexistant.

Sadly I have to agree. It is crazy that they just abandoned nearly all of their Japanese franchises and refused to put more effort into one of the largest gaming markets. PS owners can have so much more first party content (which influences third party content) to choose from if Sony did not take the current stance.

I would take another Sony handheld. But the real problem is that they don't develop enough games for the machine. Internet may make us all connected, but cultural difference never goes away. Their taste towards videogames are often different from people from the west. I have a few Japanese friends who have never played games developed outside Japan. If Sony wants customers in Japan, they need to make games that are attractive to Japanese.

Grimdark, gore and realistic western games like Last of Us, God of War or Days Gone are not too appealing to them. Like how Splatoon makes use of the whole Japanese street art as the main artstyle, while still able to stay attractive to people in a global scale? Or maybe some high budget JRPGs like Xenoblade? Those are what Sony really needs to make if they want Japanese market.

That's so true. Unfortunately, the last game that gave PS4 a boost for a while and stayed on top of the charts was Monster Hunter World and even that wasn't enough because it didn't last really long. They need to have more of those games that Japan likes if they really want success there, AA or AAA games. Konami's game has been on top of the charts for weeks now and it's doing amazing for being a small title in terms of scope.

Im finally "done" with my PS4 Pro. Finished Crash 4 today and unfinished games left are Shadow of the Colossus which I seems to never get into (tried multiple times), Crash Team Racing (don't have Plus so no online and campaign is boring), Dreams (not really finishable) and FFVIIR (waiting on PC version).

Looking back at the Nintendo 3DS offering yesterday left me with a sour taste. Not that I love it, on the contrary, it's a far cry from past handheld, but it left me with the impression that Switch is even worse.
I'm obviously not speaking about indies but on the Japanese offering. It feels, lacking ? Maybe it's just due to the absence of some big names like Capcom, or the death of AA games. For a console that sells that much in Japan, where the fuck are the Japanese games ? :confounded-face:

Man it feels great to play Division in 60fps. Last time I played it I was around like 20 and 25 fps in 720p haha. They didn't update Division 1 also did they?
I think it didnt, only 2. And yep, just did the introductory mission and it felt great to play.

Hadn't my PS5 on in a few weeks now :besorgterfrosch:

Kind of suffers from me wanting to work on my PC and especially RPG backlog again but there is still stuff I want to play on it. Have The Last Guardian installed and auto-updates disabled but then Nioh 2 came out. One day I will play the three games on my Playstation 4/5 backlog.

Yeah, I loved the first one and love the second one too. Playing in the free Leon outfit now!:D They write that you can get keys from events for the RE stuff, but what events? Or do they mean its an event that you can buy them?
Honestly I'm not up to date with TD2 events, so I couldnt tell you :(

I just read, that you need the expansion AND have finished the main game, then it's about levelling up your watch that unlocks keys that you use on the lootbox. This can only be done during the even that is the RE event. After that one can only buy keys for credits which cost real money.

Edit, event is only like five days still.

I wonder how console manufacturers are taking this shortage. At least for Sony, they supposedly sold like crazy, but still, I would be really afraid of the situation not evolving for the better in their place. Good first sales or not, your NEW console being fucking out of reach of consumers for months / a year strikes me as a very serious issue.

If anything, it means that this gen will be 1 year longer.

Exact same. I feel guilty, people desperate for one and I haven't used mine in like 3 weeks.
