Thanks! But do you guys think the next PlayStation will support backward compatibility? I have a bunch of PS3 digital games that I want to play on the PS4 so bad but Sony are against BC because they said BC "games look ancient,.. so who would play that", that's their words. So I'm not sure if they'll continue to go the PSNow route or offer BC.

No. How would anyone on here knows anyways?

If they stay on an x86 architecture, it'll be much easier to do BC with whatever's next.

We can't know for sure, but don't quote one person on why they don't have BC. 

 

The PS3 uses cell architecture.   There is simply no easy way to make a system BC with it.  

 

It is very likely the PS5 will be BC with the PS4.

 

 

Cell architecture is [over simplified] using many small processors to accomplish big tasks.  This is simply not easy to simulate on a traditional processor.    Imagine you have to move 50 tons of dirt from A to B, and you use 100 toy dump trucks and 100 people to do it...    Next, you need to take the dirt back, and you have a MUCH more powerful, normal sized dumptruck.    You can do it much faster, and you only need the one dumptruck.

 

But now try to use the single dumptruck to -simulate- the 100 people doing it with toy dumptrucks.   You've only got one truck, you -can't- simulate quantity of trucks in a feasible way.   And in terms of cell processing, it's actually an even more complex task than my analogy above suggests.

With GS's trade bonus this weekend there are a lot of games that one can go digital for free or even profit. Even low tiv games like LBP 1 and 2 can be traded for a small profit (we are talking $0.50 or so) when getting a PSN card and picking up the digital games on sale.

It's bizarre but the flat trade in value for Ratchet and Clank has been going up at GS. It's now $12.50. I got $20 for it because of the 60% bonus thing (not a Pro member so didn't get the 70%).

Makes the decision to go digital even easier.

It was $8 just yesterday.

Were there credits or something in the beta of Marvel Heroes Omega that had to be used by a certain time? I feel like I had plenty to purchase a character or two before but now I have squat. Just trying to decide to play this more on PS4 or XB1.

I just checked and I still have all of my Eternity Splinters. They even gave out four of the Marvelous Loot Boxes to people that played it before now.

 

Unless you're talking about right at the launch of the open beta where they gave out about 900 Eternity Splinters to people when prices for the base heroes rose from 400 to 525 or something like that, but they hadn't adjusted the amount they gave you after the tutorial. They adjusted that later on and got rid of the bonus Eternity Splinters since it wasn't necessary, but you would've had to stop in such a weird place, not buy any heroes, and just be coming back to it. You still would not have lost anything, but just missed out on getting an extra hero or one of the higher-priced heroes.

How is Disgaea 5 for a SRPG noob? Considering it, but not sure if I want to bite.


Yeah, I'm not a complete noob to SRPGs but sounded like this was incredibly deep and you have to spend a lot of time knowing stats, etc, to do well. That has me a bit scared off. So I'd like hear from others on this as well.

Disgaea can be very welcoming if you aren't well versed in it. You only really need to do all the crazy stat maxing if you want to do all the content and by the time you get to that point you will have learned all the of systems anyway. 

 

This would be in stark contrast to Natural Doctrine which just sits your anus right on top of a rusty spike and tells you to have fun.

Looking into it, they dropped the prices on a bunch of heroes in Marvel Heroes Omega. Before, it was just Angela, Nova, and Squirrel Girl at the cheapest price of 250 Eternity Splinters. Now they're at 200 ES with Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Hulk, and Kitty Pryde joining them. The mid-tier heroes are now at 500 instead of 525, I believe, and the highest tier heroes are at 750 instead of 775. I can nearly get two of the cheaper heroes with the 366 I've earned so far.

Thanks! Having a PSTV as well as a PS4, is there one that would be better to jump into first? Think the PSP and Vita games are all PSTV compatible.

Or should I just go for Disgaea 5?

I'd just go to 5. DD2 is a continuation of the first one so you wouldn't want to jump in there but the rest are all self contained.

R.I.P. old thread, long live new thread.

 

How is Disgaea 5 for a SRPG noob? Considering it, but not sure if I want to bite.

At it's deepest, it is a life-consuming monster.  But the story requires minimal knowledge of stats and such.  You could easily beat the game with a simple group of story characters and a few helpful allies like mages and warriors.  Story missions have no penalties for failure (there are fees to heal characters but it's cheap) and you can quit the current stage without penalty in order to grind older stages.  Trying too hard to min/max and make specialty classes early on will be mostly pointless.

I know there were complaints about the length but is Trine 3 worth the extra $3 to go from the 1&2 bundle to the complete collection?


Bumping your question because I'm looking for Trine advice as well. I have Trine 2 from ps+ and am on the fence whether to buy Trine 1 or get the trilogy. Then I'd own all three games if my plus ever expired
