Dredge is a fantastic game. I loved it.
Currently playing Dave the Diver on PS Extra and I'm really enjoying it.

Might grab Rise of Ronin when it goes on sale.
Ronin has lots to do and tons of weapons (and stances) almost too much. Has a mechanix that allows you to go to previous areas. Just started the 3rd act and was a new "mechanic". Lots of depth (if you like reading about the characters and lots of weapons). Definitely enjoying it. Did feel like an AC game. Then again, I try to stealth my way through the majoirty of games that I play.

There is replayability, but I rarely go back and play a game for a second time through (exceptions: Diablo 2 and Borderlands 2)
 
Because usually games hit Game Pass first before they go to PlayStation premium or plus if they ever actually do.
There’s tons of games that don’t go to GamePass or any sub for that matter. If it was an EA game (or Microsoft first party of course), then you might be right to ask but there’s no possible way to know if other games will come to GamePass or PS Extra.
 
The odd thing is FC 24 not going to EA Play/Game Pass in mid May like FIFA used to. Must have something to do with it going to PS Essential for a random 41 day time frame. :unsure:
 
Okay so I am sure people will be posting any really good deals here. I will try and see if I can contribute although I am mainly into PSVR 1 and 2 sales and am so stoked we are getting 5 on the service next month.
 
I pulled the trigger on Rise Of Ronin. Been waiting for that to go on sale. Still $50 but really excited to play it. Unsure if I'll buy anything else, guess I'll see if anything else screams out to me
 
You don't play any online games on xbox or PS5?

A physical copy of PS5 Nioh Collection for $20 is tempting but I am not sure I need more backlog.
I mostly play Forza Horizon (can play enough modes to unlock the new cars every week), Rocket League, and Halo.

I am also tempted by the Nioh collection because it’s a good deal, but I dislike the genre.
 
Grabbed Horizon complete edition, Rebirth and Rise of the ronin for effectively $122 total before tax at Target. A bit more than my normal buy points, but oh well.
 

State of Play is back! Tune in live for updates on PS5 and PS VR2 titles, plus a look at PlayStation Studios games arriving later this year.

I must have missed that in the reading but oh yeah way back when those flash sales were the best
Still remember Friday Flash sales on PS3 and one time they have 99 cent games those were the days 😥

I'm thinking I will. Just need to ascertain and download my cloud saves. Still incredibly shitty Sony paywalls those ...
My essential plan is ending on the 11th and they're offering me another year for $60 but I just can't do it. I used to get it on sale for $40 which I thought was too much since I don't really use it too much besides cloud saves and the occasional monthly game that looks interesting. They really should have some sort of $10-$20 a year plan just for cloud saves if they're not going to give it to us for free or let use do local back ups.

I remember they used to be like $25-$30 on Cdkeys
 
Stupid Question. My PSN expires in July. Can I buy an extra year at a discount now before it expires or am I s@#t out of luck and will have to pay full price in July? I'd like to get in on the deal for PS+ but not seeing any way to do it. Thanks for any replies.

You can stack multiple years onto your current subscription. You don't have to wait until it expires.
 
Well Sony hasn't done anything to maintain their lead this console gen. this stuff is like clockwork. hubris and conceit is off the charts.

Can't wait to see who comes out swinging and earns market dominance on the next cycle. This gen has been like casual fine dining restaurants and their 'a la carte' price gouging. No one is willing to move away from service models, and in response, nobody cares. Core gamers are not spending big, or feeling any allegiance. These companies treat us like we are here to service them.

People are excited about the Switch 2 more than anything. Not more 'paid service' bullcrap. coming at you in waves, of sequential paywalls. just to get into multiplayer games or earn character customization.

One could easily take a year off and just start accruing cheap PC or digital game libraries. AAA isn't working, and publishers are getting frustrated. The people who bought in to "next gen" haven't felt rewarded. The people who haven't, don't feel any rush to upgrade. Really poor marketing, and value, all around.
 
psn cards are 6 off 2 25s or 12% off at dollar general until june 1st. sadly im strapped for cash until a couple days after that.

I doubt anything changes next gen.

Xbox is all in on game pass and will have a difficult time walking that back (this assumes there's even an Xbox console next gen). And since they're clearly struggling with game pass financially, I suspect it will only go up in price.

Meanwhile, Nintendo will continue to make underpowered consoles with a side gimmick/hook. And that leaves Sony in a dominant position for high-powered consoles.

The wildcard would be if Valve tries their hand at another Steam machine.
 
I'm very curious to see if the rumored PS5 Pro is a thing and if Sony is stupid enough to double-down despite knowing there's no buy-in. I think they did have plans but had to scrap them last minute upon seeing how there's no market demand for it. Seeing as they're an electronics company first, that must've hurt.

Regardless, generations are a misnomer now as there's not enough to bridge between each console anymore. At this point they're just updating the PC inside with faster hardware. All I know is I love the formfactor of the XSX and will be hard pressed to give it up anytime soon.

I think you're out of luck. The article specifies the discount is for new subscribers. Existing subscribers can only get a discount to upgrade their current subscription not extend it. They haven't offered a discount for existing subscribers to extend their membership since they jacked up the prices.

Between May 29 – June 9, new players who join PlayStation Plus can save up to 30% on a 12-month membership plan. Local promotional dates may vary for this deal, so please check the Days of Play web page for local details.
Current members can get 25% off PlayStation Plus Extra, or save 30% off Playstation Plus Premium for the remainder of their membership when they upgrade their memberships between May 29-June 12.** Additionally, all PlayStation Plus members can get 15% off content from Sony Pictures Core starting May 29 through June 12. You can also check the Sony Pictures Core app*** to find additional offers during Days of Play.***

Yeah it looks that way. Thank you. I'll just downgrade or cancel in July.

When I was playing Stellar Blade, I got to the last save point and, knowing the game's ending changes based on a final choice which gets locked in even if you reload before the final boss, I said to myself, "Oh, I'll just back my save file up on USB and overwrite it to get another ending! That way, I'll only need to play the game twice for the platinum!" So I googled my plan to make sure it'd work and oh, I forgot! PS5 doesn't allow USB save backups! Only cloud backups! Which require PS+! And Stellar Blade only has one save file! Because Playstation is paywalling save files now!

Have never had PS+ beyond a few free trials and I don't play games online enough to justify it. I'm very averse to rewarding Playstation for their anti-consumer practices and overpriced services. It sucks enough having to pay for Switch's shitty peer to peer online.

Why not just beat the game multiple times which its built to be beat multiple times with replayability
 
State of Play tomorrow:


Honestly curious what they'll show that we don't already know about... I feel like the Last of Us multiplayer game was supposed to be this year's big release but that's dead. I'm not even sure what I'd even want to see. I feel like we're just going to see more remakes and PC ports, and whatnot. I read they're working on making PSVR2 compatible with the PC, which would be neat, especially if it meant I could use it to play Alyx (I'm not buying a PC VR headset for 1 game).

Really hoping for an Astro Bot game
