Thinking of picking up Return to Arkham.  How is the performance compared to the PS3 versions after Patch 1.02?  Is the lighting still f-d up?  I remember the remasters being more bright and cartoon looking compared to the originals.

I haven't played it myself yet, but I recall reading an Amazon customer review that said reducing the brightness to mid-level or 1/3 (can't remember which) makes the games look much better.

I’m tempted to play FF9 since I never played it but I remember I bought it for PS3 and never even started it. I could also just emulate it. I would’ve been in at 12.99 but I dunno about $17

would watch some vids of gameplay then decided, i enjoyed it back in the day never really play it again since. it had some good story parts that i enjoyed, make sure you save often it does not hold your hand, if you die you can lose hours if you grind an forget to save unless the ps4 version change that. 


Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise.

PS4 version has auto-save. I lost 3 hours of progress on the PS1 version due to forgetting to save lol. The game is definitely a love letter to earlier final fantasy games, for better and worse. I enjoyed it and will probably pick this version up eventually. Backlog says wait for a better sale price.

Is my Destiny 2 ps4 pro supposed to be "whisper quiet" when I game? Because it's not as I can hear the fans kick in when playing HZD on my 1080p with boost mode enabled.I wanna say it's not no "ready to take off" loud but it's definitely louder than my xbox1s.Should I exchange it or is this normal?

Edit:after playing 3 hrs of HZD today it sounded like this

My PS4 Pro can get pretty loud also. Pretty sure they all do that. I remember it getting very loud while playing HZD as well.

 

I thought the Destiny 2 PS4 Pros were white?

That's normal. It's the cooling system working as intended.

It is white but I just grabbed that video from YouTube for reference to show how it sounds.
Maybe I'm overreacting but if enough people say that's the norm then it probably is.I was expecting it to be silent like my Xbox 1s.

You should be fine but just for reference boost mode would have nothing to do with that game or any game for that matter that released after the PS4 Pro came out. It’s only for games released prior to that which didn’t take advantage of the Pro’s new features. I believe prior to October 2016 if memory serves correctly

The Xbox 1’s don’t get loud because they just kind of lay there in missionary style not doing anything special. The ps4 gets loud because it’s doing work.

Microsoft designed the Xbox Ones like that due to fear of a repeat of the Xbox 360's costly RROD issues, so they put more into cooling and room for the component than it maybe needed as a result.

Seriously? I own both systems and I actually have been buying all of my multi-platform games on X1 because my S is almost completely silent while my original PS4 sounds like a freight train on almost anything other than a less graphically intensive indie game. (Also have more friends on XBL)

The usually minor — if any — graphical differences just aren’t worth it for me. Kind of funny because in the previous gen it was the other way around. My 360 was way louder than the PS3.

That said I still love my PS4 because it absolutely has had better exclusives than X1. Just isn’t much of a comparison TBH.

Sorry if I sounded antagonistic. Just in a pissy mood today. But generally speaking, I love my X1 and PS4 about equally just for completely different reasons — not just noise but XBL for multiplayer and Sony for killer exclusives.

Any recommendations for Batman: Arkham VR? It's not much of a deal price in my mind, but given I get most of my PS credit on sale I may be swayed to picking it up if it's good. Also, any feedback on whether it causes motion sickness? I tried Until Dawn: Rush of Blood and didn't last more than 15 minutes before I felt terrible.

has anyone here bought from this site before? are they legit? it looks like it's for the $10 code only, so i'm about to buy 30 of them since they accept paypal.

 

edit: limit one lol

they have the paypal logo on their site but it doesn't show up as an option during checkout. seems shady.

I think practically everyone in this thread has bought from them before.  I've bought more than half a dozen times.  And you can't buy 30, it's limit 1.

I'll give it a solid recommendation. And I'm pretty susceptible to motion sickness, but I didn't get any here. There's a reason this game is up there with most people as one of their top PS VR experiences.

Just make sure you have a lot of room to play. You'll be standing up, needing space, and turning completely around a few times.

Supposedly the Pro runs cooler than the OG PS4 did though.

Heard my Pro's fan for the first time yesterday playing Titanfall 2. Still more quiet than my launch PS4 though.

I've bought and posted the sales well over a year and never had issues

 

well worth the 3$ savings and the sales are random. Ihave done up to 3-4 in a week and sometimes weeks without any

 

never had an issue and afaik nobody else has made a case either

 

just one thing to keep in mind is that it's an international charge, that could matter if you pay fees but many don't
