  1. For the fifth year in a row, I’ll be on travel that day, but will do what I can with the old Vita.
  2. As soon as I saw the trophy list, I predicted the precise question and response above. Time to play the lottery.
  3. I’ve had my Vita since 2016 and have been playing regularly. I took note of people having this issue over the summer and considered myself fortunate to have not been affected. As Road Warrior Hawk would say, “Well ... !” I now have the Vita activation plague. Seriously chaps my ass.
  4. I wasn’t able to get this in single player mode either. I searched for a while and discovered that it is a long-standing issue and will only pop in multiplayer games with other players.
  5. There are 3 games that I had bought the PS4 versions for in the past, but not the Vita versions. I searched for each of those in the Vita store and they still show a $0.99 price. So, the cross-buy does not seem to apply retroactively. I'd bet it does work for any newly purchased games, however. Interestingly, those games that I've bought on PS4 before from Sometimes You still show up in my download list, but now show a price (and they allow me to add to cart) when I navigate to them on the store. Bottom line: I believe this cross-buy feature only applies to any purchases made on PS4 versions going forward.
  6. You’ve played a nice variety of games. Can you name a game from your experiences that was critically panned (e.g. Metacritic < 70) that you thought was actually good? Likewise, how about a game the critics adored (e.g. > 90) that you thought was overrated?
  7. @DrBloodmoney I don’t see how you are able to do this ranking, considering all the various DLC the games have, without using geometric means. Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more.
  8. I popped it yesterday by doing the Pan Wolf’s bell puzzle in an offline adventure mode, for what it’s worth.
  9. FWIW I believe this is a new issue. I’m aware of USB formatting needs. However, that’s not at issue here. The PS5 will allow you to copy saves from USB to PS5 and delete content off USB. This is a specific restriction on moving saves to USB. I think this was introduced with the latest firmware update on PS5.
  10. Given the 1000 file limit on PS+ saves, I’ve made it a routine thing to back up PS4 saves on USB. It’s well known that you can not back up PS5 saves on USB, but the option has always been there on PS5 to move PS4 saves to USB. While that option is still present, it doesn’t appear to be working anymore. It now shows your USB drive as having no free space and won’t allow any PS4 saves to be copied. I’ve had two fellow PS5 owners confirm this behavior is occurring on their systems as well. I wonder if this was intentional or unintentional on Sony’s part. I can easily see that both ways.
  11. Yes, there will be a free upgrade per this Push Square article. https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2021/05/welsh_horror_game_maid_of_sker_gets_ps5_upgrade_next_week

  13. This will be my first test of disc region versus account region when trying to upgrade. I have the UK version of the disc since it was loads cheaper than the US version. I now wonder if that disc can be used for a free upgrade on a US account.
  14. After carefully reviewing play time data for every game on my account versus my trophy progress on each, I noted the following: 1. Times aren’t tracked for any PS3 or Vita games 2. Times aren’t tracked for all PS4 games, but seem to be for most 3. Play times pass the reasonableness check (within 10% of guide estimates) for the vast majority of titles 4. Only one of my playtimes jumped out as obviously flawed. Fire Pro Wrestling only registered a minute of playtime but I’m only one trophy off the plat. Of note, I only played that game using Remote Play from a PC, so that may be a cause of errant time data. 5. After spot checking several times against save files, they aren’t exact matches but are within 10%. 6. Playing online or offline appears to have no impact on time data. My personal conclusion is that the playtime data is demonstrably not 100% accurate, but it is sufficient as a secondary check for suspicious activity. That is, sufficient supporting evidence but not primary evidence, for cheating.
  15. I’m unsure whether or not this is common, but I’m unable to create a private session to do the solo boosting method today. It was working yesterday.
