$60 a year isn’t bad. Wonder if the game streaming has gotten better? That would be my main thing is to play PS2 & PS3 games. Wish those were downloadable.

$5/month at $60 annual is actually a great price even if you only ever play games that download locally, especially if you've neglected the PS4 this gen like I have and are new to it. Assuming the PS5 works with PS Now (it'd be crazy for it not to with full PS4 BC), this is a great way for folks who skipped a gen to play old titles on next year's hardware. 

 

MS still has the better offer IMHO, between day one first party titles and full BC / not streaming old games, but this is quite a competitive move.

Can't find an hd vid without the PS labeling, but here is the Terminator gameplay. That intro is pretty subpar imo tho. Rest looks great however

Hopefully they fix that glitch where if you have psnow and download a game say resident evil 4 and it'll be giving you the license like purchasing it.So when RE4 goes on sale and you want to add it to your library it won't let you purchase because apparently you already have the license from psnow.

The weird thing with that PSNOW price drop is even those first party titles like God of War and Uncharted are only in the system until January 2020, so depending on what day in January that's only 3 months or 4 months. Looking over wikipedia it does look like the PS2 titles are downloadable but the selection is quite small, because that had me somewhat intrigued if just to check out some odd things I missed. PS3 looks like the majority.

For PS Now, if they run on PS4 hardware (like the PS2 ports which run native) then it's downloadable. Anything else (PS3, PS1, etc) is some Stadia bullshit. 

 

I still don't see them throwing the cash around to secure major third parties the way Microsoft has - PS Now isn't central to their business strategy. Game Pass has completely changed how people use their Xbox.

They said every month, they will add a handful of "marquee" titles that will only be around for three months, if the initial batch is anything to go by. This is in addition to the "evergreen" titles that stay on the service for roughly a year. I expect the marquee titles to be on par with Game Pass games, and there's a huge library of Japanese games to draw from that aren't available on Xbox at all.

This PS Now news is even better than it appears initially because you don't need PS+ to play any of the games in PS Now online. You would need XBL Gold or Game Pass Ultimate to do that on Xbox, whereas PS Now is as low as $5/month if you do the annual plan. (You can wait for one of the $15 back when you spend $100 promotions to save a little more money.)

The last benefit to PS Now that shouldn't be overlooked is that cloud saves stay up indefinitely. So we all know cloud saves are free on Xbox One, but it's paywalled on PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360. PS Now circumvents that.

Looks like Amazon might have another weird promotion going for Prime members, they have Ghost Recon Breakpoint on sale for $49 then another $10 off for prime members. Not my kind of game, but $20 off at launch seems a decent discount

 

https://www.amazon.c...le_o00_s00?th=1

Thanks for the heads up.

 

I can not ever remember pre-ordering a game on amazon before. I know this game has release day delivery on it, but I thought I have read stories about amazon not delivering on time. Does any one have any experience with it? Thanks

90% of the time on release day, time of day depends on the carrier.

I’ve complained every time they messed up and got credit though. I got the last Metallica CD free, and games they gave me like $5-10 credit. Depending on how late it was.

The last year or so they have been on time though. But they use ups for me, so 5-8pm by the time they get to my house. Both Usps and fedex get to me by noon.

Thank you very much.

 

Amazon also uses UPS for me as well so it usually is in the same time frame as you.

So I booted up Destiny 2 because of the F2P, and it seems to have wiped my progress with the story quests (was in the middle of the first DLC on my Warlock and a bit through Forsaken on my Hunter). I'm hoping it's just a glitch because it would suck if I am locked out of those (as I am not wanting to start a new character from the beginning).

My siblings just surprised me with an Division 2 Xbox One X bundle as a late bday gift after they saw me constantly hard resetting my day one Xbox, I think it would eventually need internal replacement parts. I bought them a Titanfall Xbox back in the day and I do share my digital movies and games with them all the time. Pretty cool.

Anyway almost all my content are on an external hard drive but for the content in the internal hard drive, only option I have is to re-download right? Excited to see the enhancements from this baby.

You can copy to external if you have the room. If not, there's also a network transfer somewhere in settings > storage.

I don't think it was a glitch, but I also don't think you're locked out. I'm trying to remember what article I saw on Friday. It was basically a "to-do" list before Destiny 2 relaunched. Besides stuff like break down cosmetics and excess mods, one of the things said story progress was resetting. It was on Kotaku https://kotaku.com/y...kend-1838544767

Well, that sucks. I didn't see any option of starting them over though. So it does look like I have to start a new character and play through everything again.

The game is now F2P on :xb1: :ps4: and :pc: and with cross-save you can take your characters to any of these platforms.  I sure hope we get a large influx of people into the game because it is in a great place right now.
 
If anyone has any questions about the game, feel free to ask here or via PM.

Does cross-save carry over for the original Destiny? If I log into my PS4 for Destiny 2 and have my old character from my PS3 with Grimoire etc, that carries over to cross-save to Xbox. If I then boot up the original Destiny is there any progress reflected? I assume it is because the profile is all the same, but all the emphasis has been on D2.

The only thing that carried over from D1 to D2 is the character's race/gender.

The "Xbox Game Streaming (preview)" app is now available to download in the Google Play store. Doesn't do anything yet but I tried anyway...

EA paid out the ass to get everyone streaming Apex Legends again. They must really hope that new map will get people back on board. 300,000 viewers. There are bunch of people streaming that don't normally play Apex; like WoW, Hearthstone, and Just Chatting streamers, so I get the impression they're paying a LOT. The streamer I have on at the moment is gifting 5 subs per death with only 1000 viewers, and she's bad at the game.

Unfortunately, no, that will not work. Not exactly as you say, I mean. You would be able to use your same characters from PS3 D1 -> PS4 D1 -> PS4 D2, then enable cross save and you can use them on XB1 for D2, but the D1 progress doesn’t carry between consoles in any fashion.

I would hope it has more, given it's been around for 3 more years than GP and titles get removed from GP.

The weird thing is that among the PS3 games are Telltale stuff (Strong Bad, Sam & Max) that I'd have expected to be removed by now, so it's an interesting library of cool stuff.
