Yeah, because digital albums and movies are so much cheaper than their physical counterparts. I'm sure the companies involved are dying to pass the savings on to the consumer.

Like I said, just speculation. Speaking of which, I 'm not as big of a fan of digital when it comes to movies. I like it because its convenient and all, but blurays just sound and look alot better, and that's just a fact. Sorry. Getting off topic. Lets get back to it....

 

Damn! What a shitty sale this week huh? However I am thinking about either picking up Lego Batman 3, or Marvels Super Heroes for PS4. Never played a Lego game before. Any thoughts?

On the flip side, you may not have the chance to pass down those games to him when he's a teenager.


True enough, but of all the things I want to pass on to my son my game collection is the least of my priorities. He can definitely have my 3DS, though.

Screw digital. I can always resell my physical copies.

Yea. Definitely been a slow burn. But if people would let go of they're hard copy's and embrace digital, it would happen quicker. But people aren't ready to do that. I used to be pro physical and just recently hoped aboard the digital train so I completely understand people's hesitation.

 

The problem is that we've all proven to be suckers who will continue to pay the same price because we're lazy so they have zero incentive to make it cheaper and when physical goes away entirely then there's even less incentive.

Has the Season Pass for Lego Batman 3 been cheaper than what it is now?

I agree with you about movies. In fact, high digital prices allows me to get cheap blus during release week because I can just sell off the digital. That, and I love the appearance of a shelf filled with Criterion's.

 

blah blah shitty sale

Dang, this week's update is pretty slow. The update times each week seem to be scattered. Is this info only pulled from the PSN blog or are there sometimes leaks? Just curious as to how it works.

I'm increasingly becoming more fond of digital (coming from a staunch physical supporter)

 

but nowadays snagging mountains of games for cheap during good sales (which happen about as often as sasquatch picnicking with chupacabra) is pretty enjoyable for me.

 

for current gen I like the idea of digital but downloading those massive files is not only a pain in the ass it could prove to be a growing pain in the ass if you have to do it a few times due to hard drive upgrades or whatever and as the collections grow it becomes quite net dependent

 

I've also grown very fond of digital "complete" additions that playstation offers after the game has been out for a while

 

The paranoia in me makes me nervous having so much tied up in invisible collections but hopefully nothing happens that makes me regret incorporating more digital into my collections

I bought the deluxe edition, and all are showing up free except "Batman Beyond"

Batman Beyond is a separate purchase; I think it's the only thing not included in the season pass.

People won't go digital until Sony starts throwing daily sales like the ones on Steam. Having weekly deal can be a hit or miss due to the fact that not everybody is a fan of the franchises that are discounted during the week. Moreover, even though some other stores sell PS game codes (Amazon, Best Buy), I have yet to see a digital sale on those outlets. PS digital games are currently a Sony monopoly.

 

If the physical market would cease to exist tomorrow it would be a catastrophe, because it would kill the only competition the PS Store has right now, giving Sony full control over their sale prices. Start opening your platform and let several digital outlets sell your codes (the Humble Store could be a good start) and them we will have a healthy market in which several stores will be pushing good deals in order to stay competitive. Only then you will have and exodus from physical to digital.

How depressing, I preordered ratchet and clank before they had the bouncer bonus (it would have been a $0 sku on my receipt) at Best Buy. Contacted BBY, was told its in the box, exchange, nope not in box. Insomniac confirmed to me no codes come in the box. It's really frustrating to preorder something so early a sku was not an add on in the original purchase. I'm glad to support insomniac though, and life happens, but it's a reminder of why I don't preorder, lmao, cause even when I do I don't get the bonus.

Bollocks.

Thanks!
Just making sure there were a few which were free before I bought the season pass, I was confused.

I do my preorders through Best Buy online and pick up in store. Almost never have an issue with pre-order bonuses. Got an email with the bonus waiting for me when I got back from the store. (This is how quickly MS should have handled the Quantum Break bonuses).

yeah I spent like an hour with multiple tools electric and manual lol

 

then I looked online and read all the horror stories

 

but I have 1.5tb in it now so it was all worth it, now I can spend the next 3 weeks redownloading everything

I think it took me longer to open the Seagate drive than the swapping. I also backed everything up in an external so all in all it was like 4 hrs to go from 500GBs to 2TB...no regrets at all

Nice. Now that PS4 can support 4TB. Is there a 2.5" 4TB hard drive out there?

 

There is: Seagate Expansion 4TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0

 

 

I've played a handful of the Lego Vita games and they are mostly ok. I would recommend all of them except Lego movie and Lego Marvel which are frustrating with the implementation of challenges in each short level that you'll have to complete for 100%. This is of course in addition to the usual collectibles in these kinds of games. Some people might like that extra challenge, but it's not what I'm looking for in a Lego game. I'm a fan of pretty much all the console iterations.

I had a full 500gig on the ps3 and for some reason I was a bit worried backing it up to external then putting it back on the new drive

 

didn't wanna risk overheating something thanks to PTSD I still have from RROD back in the day so I figure just casually redownloading everything made me more comfortable lol

 

but those screws were so horrible

 

I did have the right screw driver btw but I guess those screws are known for being crazy tight and strip super easy from what I read

I've never played any Lego games before, but I'm thinking about Harry Potter.

It's also funny that the one time I consider a weekly sale to be half decent, everyone else says it's terrible.

Amazon has had sales on digital content.

 

Theres nothing wrong with weekly sales. Those are fine and preferred bc more people get to see and take advantage of them. They have frequent flash sales every few weeks which last 3-4 days. Your argument doesnt make sense bc the same thing could be said if they did a daily sale bc not everyone would be a fan of whatever is on sale that day.

I prefer them as well myself nowadays

No, the update is pretty normal. PSN typically does not update until late afternoon EST. I think people just got spoiled from an early update the last week or 2. If there is nothing by 6pm, then I will say its slow

The PS4 will support a 4TB drive, but this guy actually has 2 2TB hard drives in it.  You still need a hard drive with a 9.5mm height to fit physically inside the PS4 drive cage.  I couldn't find anywhere that had a drive bigger than 2 TB that would actually fit in the PS4 without buying a third party adapter of some sort.  I'm sure there will be some soon, since they've added the support in the update.

Thank you very much, I shot a word that way and whether is gets fixed or not, I feel better. 

 

Again thank you, Sainrub! I appreciate this community for helping each other out when we can and if not, just listening to me bitch.

 

Anyone else playing Ratchet today? It's fantastic.

 

The lego sale this week, I can't tell if there is some good in all the games. I only buy games for PS4 and Vita, as my PS3 backlog glares at me. I guess I'll look up some reviews on the vita ports, but some prices seem very high. I can't say I've kept up with the Lego games, so release date wise may be really good.

 

Oh and I'll love my Vita forever, so I urge everyone to support Drink Box upcoming Vita exclusive Severed Launching April 26 on PS Vita and Axiom Verge Comes to PS Vita April 19.

I've got a niece and nephew I'm close with, so I wind up watching a lot of Disney channel and Disney XD. 

If I'm being kind, I'd say that they've done a tremendous job saturating their target market. Both kids are dying for the movie and the game.

If I'm being honest, I'd say that I would rather get shot out of a cannon than see that trailer again.

According to the Q&A section on Amazon's product page the STEA4000400 only contains 1 x 4 TB 2.5" drive, however, based on some of the reviews some customers are getting drives that have a hard wired USB 3 connector so they don't work with the PS4.

can't wait to buy my 300th hard drive this year

 

imagine if it was possible to have a hard drive that sat outside the console and held a shit ton of games and all it took was plugging it in to the usb port to use it and expand our overall storage massively

 

oh wait
