New Store Experience available to some of us this week

I'm downloading an update now (Insiders Alpha), fingers crossed!  (EDIT - Nope not yet)

 

Also, I wonder if this is related to the glut of freebies we're seeing now.

Yepyep.  I'm en-us and I now own Stacking, Costume Quest, Destroy All Humans, Ikaruga, and MX Unleashed, all downloaded from the other regions' stores.

I think I already owned every single one of the “Oman Wars: The Sequel” freebies, lol

Weren’t Stacking and The Maw GWG long ago?

Actually, for the US, neither game has been GwG.  However, The Maw has been a GwG substitution for other regions 17 times (so far).

 

Speaking of 360 GwG games, I'm wondering if any substitutions would be obtainable similar to what we are seeing right now.

Worked for me. Thank you!

Just finishing up the rest of achievements for Yoku's Island Express! Can't believe how much I enjoyed this game. Between Yoku, Carrion, CrossCode and The Touryst, gamepass really knocking it out of the park with these games.

Enjoyed Carrion and Touryst as well.

 

I'll have to play Yoku before it leaves Game Pass along with DMC 5 too.

The Touryst is delightful and charming. Reminds me of playing early NES and PC games where exploring for the sake of it was fun and the stakes were low. Anyone playing it, if you spend more than 5 minutes trying to figure out a puzzle or a boss fight, just google it, the answer is usually staring you in the face. There was one puzzle-boss which didn't do a good job hinting at what to do and I spent way too long running around in circles.

I can’t get stacking. Keeps wanting me to verify my account by text but I don’t know if I’m pushing the wrong buttons but I never get any text

I started to play Grounded which is on game preview under game pass(been a long time since I've tried one). I think I spent about 3-4 hours on it, wow it is awesome. You basically crafting items to help you out while exploring this great open world. The single player aspect is very short as they are still developing it, but its really well done. Any ideas when they might release the final verison? Months? next year?

It might get "officially" released this year still, but I wonder if it's just going to be something like Sea of Thieves where it's constantly getting updates. I do hope they put in a sizeable single player experience in Obsidan is known for. Normally I can't do the "survival" genre but this one is good.

I think that this game game will get supported for many years to come like Sea of Thieves which is almost a completely different game then when it first launched. If we compare Grounded to another open world survival game like Subnautica, that one released early access back in 2014 and then officially out of early access 4 years later in 2018. Personally I'm just waiting for achievements to get added before deep diving into Grounded but the game was definitely fun from what I played of it.

Ouch so that Spiderman exclusive to Playstation rumor for The Avengers game is true. Bold move for a game I was already pretty iffy on. Easy pass on it now.

I probably know exactly the one you mean and even when "it clicked" I still got screwed due to bad aim. First time I shut off a game in rage in awhile. Ha went back the next night.

Yep, as a primary Xbox player I was going to get Marvel's Avengers on release but now they've given me good reason to not get it and wait and possibly get it if I ever get a PS5.  If not, oh well.  Square Enix's loss.

I keep forgetting that game is even coming out, that first preview I saw of it did nothing for me. I’ll play it once it hits Gamepass most likely.

So if Spider-Man is in the game’s campaign, are they just going to cut the scenes out? WTF?

I was thinking of preordering Avengers based on the latest information that was revealed but with a major PS exclusive character I’ll be passing.

What a stupid choice, the beta will have to be amazing for me to still preorder, and even then I’m not sure. Really dumb move

Looks like I'll be getting it on PlayStation.  The beauty of not being loyal to a specific console.

 

Whatever Sony paid for the Spiderman ip, it was an absolute steal.

Random with all this 360 stuff going on, but the Dante's Inferno DLC is back up on the store. Hmmm do I really need to drop $10 on a game that old...

I grabbed it. It was the one thing keeping me from starting the game. Servers are apparently back up for this part of the game also i guess according to TA forums

I have a PS4 and get exclusives on it but this is just plain dumbass anti-consumer bullshit.

If I recall, Microsoft was fine with allowing Nintendo to use Banjo in Smash games even after it bought Rare. Just like MS and Nintendo were good with cross platform before Sony finally gave in.

The robot snake with the rocks and water? That guy is an asshole and the aiming mechanics suck.

This isn't surprising given Sony's relationship with Marvel now and the fact that it's a Japanese publisher. Still very disappointing, though, and makes me not want to support it on principle.

 

yeah not a fan of this or the DS4 not being compatible with ps5 games.

I think this is just going to cause more confusion, having things partially supported. Makes me think of the Wii U and all it's controllers: Classic Controller works with everything via Wiimote, U Pro only with Wii U games, Gamecube adapter but only for Smash because ~arbitrary bullshit~, no Game Pad in Wii mode.... 

 

I'm skeptical as hell that anything the new controller does will matter to have it not be there for 95% of games that aren't launch titles showing off gimmicks and doodads (remember when Dead Rising 3 really really wanted you to know it could DVR clips?). 

 

The phrasing "for supported PS4 games" just reinforces when Cerny hinted that not all PS4 software would run on the PS5. Definitely confirms I won't be getting one until there is a price drop or redesign.

If anybody’s still trying to stock up on Microsoft credit for a future console purchase, Rakuten has a $100 gift card for $90 with coupon code load10, plus 450 points for a future purchase ($4.50).
