The "indie route" is primarily because gamers accept lower production values on those games, IMO.

My point is that Sony is becoming too homogenized in their lineup and complacency is what got them in trouble the first time. I love their games, but variety is the spice of life.
This. All of this. Diversity generally leads to risk when it comes to business decisions, and it's not hard to understand why Sony seems reluctant to spend tens if not hundreds of millions on a bet that may not pay off. I'm thinking of your points earlier with The Last Guardian for example. Sony is likely in the red for that product due to it's long development time, and as you said, it not hitting the mark with the audience. In a modern gaming world where games take dozens if not hundreds of developers working for 2+ years, innovation is a risk and risks are expensive. Just my two cents.
In some ways I think a healthy Nintendo is exactly what this industry needs; it needs a company that marches to the beat of its own drummer and providing (perhaps smaller) gaming experiences that more people can enjoy. Not disposable/generic entertainment, but gaming that gives you that feeling of Oh this is something new.

This seems like a non argument.

Well, this sucks. This is now my third Dualshock 4 controller that is having problems registering a full analog stick push. And I take good care of my controllers. Hell, with this one I've only used it with Overwatch, Doom, and Resident Evil 7 to limit wear, and when I'm not using it I put it back in the packaging. The rubber on all my controllers are in perfect condition. Though I did play a lot of Overwatch.
I came up with a solution. I have a cronusmax, so I made a script that tells it to read a 50%+ push up on the left analog stick as a 100% push. I should also add the adjustment to right on the right stick to fix one of my other controllers.
I'll just need to always play with the cronusmax when 100% pushes are important. I played Final Fantasy XV fine with the controller with a bum right stick.

I heard the problem I was having with the analog sticks is probably caused by dust. I sprayed some dust spray into the crevices of the analog sticks, and now two of them are working perfectly. One of the sticks in the third controller is reading a full push to the left as a 99% push. I'll take it.
I didn't think dust was a problem because one of the controllers I was having issues with is one I would always put back in the packaging when I wasn't using it.

I tried chatting with ps customer service. They require ps serial number. I provided the 11 digits but didn't include model number. They weren't able to match email with ps serial number. Do you guys think it's because I didn't include ps model number?

I read that the God of War will have some massive day 1 patches that, even with my decent 100 mbps down connection will probably take a bit to download due to network congestion. Does anyone know if there's a way to pre-load patches?
I remember reading with update 4.50, you could pre-load patches but I can't really find any details on how this actually works or of it's only for digital releases.

Is the PowerA Dual Charging Station the closest the PS4 had to an official charger? I see a CUH-ZDC1 on eBay that seems to be "official" official, but the sellers want an arm and a leg for it. Was that one made for foreign markets?
