  1. This is fairly common (with Switch and Xbox as well). Happened to me multiple times (with PS4 as well). Luckily it's covered by a warranty and I always got a replacement. You were lucky it didn't happen with your PS4 controller. This is an old issue.
  2. Just tried it on PS5 from the PS Plus. The worst gaming experience ever. The controls are absolute shit and this shouldn't even be on the PS Store.
  3. It's based on statistics as I mentioned previously. You can easily look it up, there have been quite a few surveys conducted on this issue and the biggest spenders were always adults, not teens or kids.
  4. I still fail to understand where this notion comes from; it's kids who spend all that money on microtransactions. Is it from the news we occasionally get "kid used parents' credit card to buy stuff in games for XX thousands", etc. This doesn't happen that often the companies would build a business on it. I've seen a few reports showing the biggest spenders are usually 30-35 years old. Not teenagers with parents' ccs.
  5. I don't buy games on release anymore. I used to but that was ages ago. Long before Plus/Now. My backlog is so huge at this point it's simply irresponsible to do so (I'm fortunate I can afford it but I prefer to invest disposable income). Even if I don't count Plus/Now games I plan to play, my library of games I bought and haven't played yet is already around 100. That's simply too many and buying new games on day one is giving to "oh it's new, I gotta have it" syndrome.
  6. I see no difference between Platinum or Bronze. There are games well worth playing and 100% and they don't have Platinum. Often I see comments such as "not going to even bother, doesn't have plat". This is a silly mindset. Some games even have free dlcs and often people don't bother because "nah, already got plat".
  7. I was hoping this would be a nice, lazy-relaxing game to play after work. Unfortunately, it's a cringe-fest, generic, boring live service rougelite.. The game is trying so hard to be hip and cool and appease modern/young? player base, it's off-putting. Generic music I had to turn completely turn off after 20 min. Voice acting delivering lines as "go with the flow.... gogo, hashtag... etc" wanted me to delete the game right away.
  8. My gf finished the game a few hours ago. My advice is don't let the trophies not unlocking bother you or stop you from playing the game. The trophies will eventually unlock. She finished the game and had 8 trophies only. Had to restart the game three times and to play the final scene (5 min gameplay) again and everything unlocked.
  9. Interesting stats, something I myself occasionally track. If possible, I'd suggest taking the date closer to the PS Plus availability date. The games won't be available for another week. It's not going to make a huge difference but if you have time, why not do it. I only wish Sony would reveal numbers of how many people download/add individual games. Only a tiny fraction of PS Plus users are tracked here on PSN Profile and it's a specific community so the results are already biased and the reality might be very different. Still, it's interesting to track and at least see trends within the PSN Profiles community.
  10. Would you be so kind and link a spurce stating that particular game is owned by 95% of all players?
  11. Season pass no longer guarantees access to all post-launch content. Not just Ubisoft. It has been like that for years. I'm also not sure why people expected DLC/SP to be included in PS+. You always, maybe an occasional exception, get base game a that's it.
  12. Whoa, so many people complaining. Started both games Tribes and Curse and both are amazing. I can see myself sinking 50+ hours in it easily. These are exactly the types of games I want from PS Plus/Now. Not something I would necessarily buy myself, no heavy hitters but still decent games I might not have played otherwise.
  13. Finally had more time today to check the list again. I might end up playing the following games: Death Stranding and Death Stranding Director’s Cut | Kojima Productions, PS4/PS5 Demon’s Souls | Bluepoint Games, PS5 Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut | Sucker Punch, PS4/ PS5 Marvel’s Spider-Man | Insomniac Games, PS4 Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales | Insomniac Games, PS4/PS5 Returnal | Housemarque, PS5 Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End | Naughty Dog, PS4 Uncharted: The Lost Legacy | Naughty Dog, PS4 Far Cry 3 Remaster*** | Ubisoft, PS4 (if the remaster is good) Far Cry 4*** | Ubisoft, PS4 Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy | Square Enix Co. LTD., PS4/PS5 Red Dead Redemption 2 | Rockstar Games, PS4 Resident Evil | Capcom Co., Ltd, PS4 Soulcalibur VI | Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc., PS4 South Park: The Fractured but Whole*** | Ubisoft, PS4 Tom Clancy’s The Division*** | Ubisoft, PS4 That's more than enough to keep me busy for a year. That's on top of my current backlog of PS Plus games from the past 3 years that I still intend to play. And hopefully, some of the games I started recently from PS Now will stay available (Desperados 3, Moving Out, Victor Vran). I'm very happy with the provided titles. It simply pays off to be a patient gamer these days and not buy the newest titles right away. Having pre-purchased PS Now a few months ago, makes the deal even sweeter. Tons of content to enjoy for 60$.
  14. I'm actually pretty happy with the announced list. There are plenty of titles I was considering buying. My backlog keeps growing.
  15. Listing the games on eBay doesn't cost you anything. Why not put it up there before you find a better place/site?
