  1. 3 hours a day for 3 months is only 270 hours. So many things don't add up here.
  2. I'll leave it there as most of your points have some merit. However, on that last point - everything in business is always about maximising profit. Like it not. I have my own business and I'm always looking at ways to increase my margin. I would be foolish not too. I'm not running a charity. If you are not happy with the service as a consumer you should not support said business. They will eventually fail.
  3. It's not an argument. It's a fact. The fact is the average gamer is 35 years old. It's also a fact that marketing departments predominantly target people who the most disposable income which happens to be older people. They want to sell their product. Yes, facts will change over time just like everything else but this is the current state of play - not what you said. It will be difference in the years to come for sure. Baby bloomers aren't dying off either btw. They are in early retirement years or about to retire, they are cashed up and spending big - on other things besides gaming of course as that was mostly prior to their generation. And I didn't say you haven't embraced anything modern because you like stuff from 15 years ago. Please, don't Cathy Newman me. Like everything time moves on and there will be good things and bad things about current and past generations. You have said NOTHING positive about the current gen of gaming. Yes, it has it short falls like with all this shovel ware shit right now. But the cinematic master pieces produced in some modern titles are breath taking. These games have budgets of big screen movies these days. I'm just saying overall, the modern gaming experience is superior to the past generations. I've playing stuff since the early 90s too. And I used to love it. But I'm sure if you put me in front of a commodore 64 now and had to type, 8,1 to launch my game and play it, I'd be over it very quickly. On to the topic on this thread, which relates to that stuff in way. Gaming, and Sony, is first and foremost a business. It is no longer profitable to sell ps3 games on sale these days. And like most things that age, they will probably keep going up in value (classic cars, other gaming consoles, sports cards, etc). That's the way the free market works.
  4. Absolute rubbish. The average age of someone who plays video games is 35 so you are smack bang on the target audience age. Also, it's far more profitable to market your products at people who have disposable income. Most young people under 25 don't have a large disposal income and therefore if the choice is there to have some food with friends or buy a game, they are likely to pick the food. On average, people earn the most money in their life time from 40 to 55 when they have been in the workforce for a while and kids etc have grown up so they have less financial dependants. These are are the people who are making more purchasing decisions than young adults. Your post of just another rant because you haven't embraced the new generation of games either through stubbornness, financial reasons or both. All generations have had great games - and bad games-but if you think gaming was better then rather than now, you are delusional.
  5. The solution to stop all this fighting and constant debate is an easy one - however it requires actual work from the site owner who hasn't done anything major to the site in years now. The current leaderboard is based on the points system which in this day and age is obsolete due to the way Sony operates their trophy system. This leaderboard has to go and be replaced with multiple opt-in leaderboards. - Total points (world and country boards) - ie: the current board - most ultra rares (world and country) - average rarity (world and country) - completion rate (world and country) - leaderboard for each console (world and country) with all of the above leaderboard metrics - any other leaderboard people think is relevant As these boards are all 'opt-in' there should be no more complaining about these ezpz games and 'normal' gamers not being able to climb the boards because you will be competing against people who are like minded and with similar goals. If you are going for overall points, you wouldn't opt-in to the average rarity board as you would be no where on it. Same as if you were going for ultra rares, you wouldn't opt in to the points board as there would be little point. That way, there is no singular overall leaderboard, but a series of about 20 something boards. If you are hunting average rarity on Ps4 games only, there is a board for you to compete against like minded people. Who gives a shit what everyone else is doing outside your own goals. Anyway, this is all a pipe dream at this stage and I doubt we will ever see something like this unless @HusKy could do it on psnp+ but I imagine it would be a lot of work to set something like that up.
  6. Don't downgrade - git gud. They will take some practise but all those license times are doable. BTW, I saw your post the other day saying this is easier than 5, sport and 7. I'd say 7 is the easiest of the bunch to be honest. In terms of difficulty and the grind time. But again, just my opinion. Difficulty is subjective to everyone.
  7. How fitting you revive this thread after our crew just started homefront revolution. The parallels to this place (and what's happened in this thread) and the setting in that game is uncanny 😂 Anyway, looking forward to joining you on this journey, as always, on some of these games. Especially destiny 2. What an epic ride that is going to be. How this epic master piece is free, I'll never understand. It's been so far so good.
  8. Seeing as this is a trophy website, I will almost guarantee there will be a thread on it with said trophies on that games sub forum. I don't know off the top of my head as I did the game nearly 6 years ago and the trophies changed probably around 2 years ago now I'd say.
  9. Yea. Most of the Rainbow six siege list changed from its original list. There have been others but this one springs to mind.
  10. Glad your back 😘
  11. The new tracks are coming in a free DLC update later this year. They didn't have a chance to add them to the base game due to covid.
  12. I think the best thing the CRT could do to get this white list implemented (if that's what the 4 of them want?) is for all of them to just quit. Since sly makes all the decisions, yet never shows face or comments publicly on these matters, he will be forced to either: A: make the change since the other 4 are the ones who do all the work and cop all the brunt of this stuff when they don't deserve it. B: do all the stuff himself - which he won't because who would want that job. C: leave the leaderboards to be covered in cheated trophies as his whole CRT team has stopped working (for free) because he is too stubborn to do anything about it when an overwhelming majority of the users on this site would like a change. Seems like that would be the only way to make a change on this place.
  13. Don't really care what you do mate. I called him out, so you can ban me from the site if you wish. The original posts that your colleague deleted from this thread were instigated by him sticking his nose in and trolling anyway so as far as I am concerned he gets everything that comes his way. I'm always going to stick up for a mate and call out this kind of garbage. The real issue is if this is a separate user of this site trolling on alt, you should call them out for it.
  14. Interesting to say the least. All those other accounts I listed that are used for rep farming and the like, you can almost guarantee are his. I can think of one other person this is most likely to be. However, I do believe you guys should always name and shame these trolls that use alts; rather than deal with it behind the scenes. If people are called out public for the idiots that they are, they are probably less inclined to behave the way they do. Or, they will leave the site and make it an overall better experience for everyone.
  15. Good to hear you still enjoyed it given the massive grind. I'll get it done by 2028. No free speech in PRNK. PSNP is a similar acronym with similar results so it makes sense.
