  1. Other interesting recent news: An absolute success on sales: the PS4 port of Amnesia Collection (previous PC exclusive) recouped all costs and more after just 2 days It’s no secret by now that the PlayStation VR has been a tremendous success story for Sony. While it’s not the first VR headset available in the market, it seems it’s set to become the most successful very soon — at least in the UK. According to data tracker GfK, early UK PlayStation VR sales numbers is already approaching the combined installed base of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, with GfK Director Paul Simpson also adding that PSVR “eradicated” may concerns about VR. VR devices Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, both of which are focused towards gamers, suffer when compared to PlayStation VR. The VR units of the former are more expensive (£550-plus vs c. £350) and require a relatively high performance PC. PlayStation VR also benefits from a large installed base of PS4 owners – more than 3.5m in the UK. Early UK sales of PlayStation VR indicate it is already approaching the combined installed base of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Initial PlayStation VR game sales are also positive with eight or nine boxed releases featuring in the Official UK Top 40 games chart (week ending Saturday 15th October 2016).

  2. https://twitter.com/frictionalgames/status/801810611889967104 Frictional Games recently released the Amnesia: Collection on PS4 earlier this week (November 22 if you’re keeping track). This horror game compilation featured three titles: Amnesia: The Dark Descent (its DLC Justine) and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. Priced at $29.99 (although there was a 10% discount for PS+ members), the game has already been a success for the Swedish developer. The minds behind SOMA went to Twitter to report how well the game has done. “Good news,” the developer wrote. “After just two days of sales, Amnesia Collection for PS4 has recouped all costs [and] more!” It’s certainly great to see a game finding profitability so quickly, and hopefully the success for Frictional Games will lead to more PC games to receive console ports. Not all games can be this successful, but it should get some other developers on the fence to give it a try. It also should give hope to those that hoped that Frictional Games’ Penumbra trilogy of horror titles (Overture, Black Plague, and Requiem) would make the jump to PlayStation 4. There’s clearly a market for these horror titles on the PlayStation Store, so we might see Frictional Games port them over as well now that they know the demand is there. For more on the Amnesia Collection check out Chandler’s review. PlayStation LifeStyle’s Chandler Wood said that the series was influential and “many newer horror games owe their own scares to.” He concluded that the collection was a “time capsule of horror that will prey on your mind, [and] a fine collection for anyone who missed it on PC.” http://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2016/11/24/amnesia-collection-ps4-already-turning-a-profit-for-frictional-games/
  3. these aren't remasters, they are emulations, handled by a small team that was created to focus on them while the main teams works on new games. same thing happens with almost every other company who makes remasters: they are handled by an external company or by a small team of said company, not by the whole team itself.
  4. well you can blame rockstar for that, those are their games. they set the price and they decide which games gets a plat or not, and apparently only their open-world games are getting one (except for manhunt for some reason). i believe gta liberty city stories and gta vice city stories will get a plat because they are open world. not much of a bliss because the xbox one isn't getting any of this ps2 games unless microsoft does a "original xbox emulation" at some point. also we're getting all this low-budget indies "thanks" to steam, devs have so little faith for pc gamers and their piracy and low sales that they only try to make non-AAA games for it, and just indies.
  5. then you're missing out on thousands of excellent PS2 games, the Xbox didn't had nearly half of the good quality that the PS2 had (in fact Xbox's catalogue was pretty mediocre compared to it), which is to this day one of the best selling console of all time, while the original Xbox wasn't much successful: nice sale!
  6. since some of those silent hill are PS2 games you can request them on the proper thread: http://psnprofiles.com/forums/topic/33146-wish-lists-ps2-games-on-ps4/ and i think siren blood curse got rated some months ago on a korean site for a PS4 re-release, maybe it is a remaster.
  7. red dead redemption has been recently added to PS Now, which means you can actually already play it on PS4, although i think you need to have a good internet connection (more than 5 mbps) and be subscribed to that service, and i think its only available on certain regions. both of those assassin's creed, together with revelations and some short films are already confirmed to be coming next week remastered for the PS4: http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin's_Creed:_The_Ezio_Collection you can already pre-order that collection on the PS Store. red dead redemption has been recently added to PS Now, which means you can actually already play it on PS4, although i think you need to have a good internet connection (more than 5 mbps) and be subscribed to that service, and i think its only available on certain regions.
  8. i was just wondering if such option existed, great! although i have a EU account and still was able to access that new feature by going to that US link.
  9. the sequel to red faction, red faction 2, is also coming to ps4: http://psnprofiles.com/forums/topic/39948-the-sequel-to-red-faction-also-coming-to-ps4-ps2-on-ps4-games-list-and-news-thread/ with red faction 1 also getting rated by pegi some weeks ago that means both red faction will be coming to ps4 very soon.
  10. i agree. although i think they only own clock tower 3 right? i don't think they own the rights of the previous ones, could be wrong though. there's other even more rare ps2 survival horror game from them called "glass rose", i'd like to try that one too.
  11. congrats. i think the cutscenes can't be skipped because the game is loading the next scenes in the background, that's why you don't get to experience any kind of loading screens, because they are "hidden" on the cutscenes (other games like beyond two souls, until dawn, uncharted 4, etc also use this technique). although while this is a cool feature for the first playthrough, it can be a annoying for the second one.
  12. since the game is from the same guy who created resident evil that match system was actually borrowed from the 2002's resident evil remake (which is now free for ps plus users this month). that game used a similar mechanic, although not exactly with matches, but using oil + lighter to burn zombie's bodies so they won't reanimate. also "mr boxhead" reminds me of pyramide head from silent hill 2 :-p
  13. i wonder why you didn't included it on your wishlist then: http://psnprofiles.com/forums/topic/33146-wish-lists-ps2-games-on-ps4/page-30#entry1007460 unless its sarcasm?
  14. for all of you who were requesting red faction, it just got rated on PEGI for a ps4 release, check this thread for more information about it: http://psnprofiles.com/forums/topic/39948-red-faction-is-the-next-ps2-game-coming-to-ps4-ps2-on-ps4-games-list-and-news-thread/
  15. i know i was only telling you that the game is scary, and that this type of games you'll only fully enjoy by playing them yourself, not watching some weird guy on the internet play them.
