PSVR2 not being backward compatible has, for the moment, completely destroyed my interest in it.

It is pretty weird that they have a "PS+ Trials" section, but that a whole bunch of the demos aren't listed there. We could use some kind of wiki to keep track of what all the games are which have PS+ trials.

It's really odd when they dont show up on the ps5 store at all and you have to use the phone app to download the demos like wtf. Both Wu long and now star ocean was said to have demo released but don't show unless you use phone app.

Yeah, it's really bothering me too. Luckily, there are devs that are working to make their games backwards compatible but the fact that it's not a universal thing is such a terrible decision from Sony.

I think it makes sense though.  If the newer version has more tracking capabilities might be hard to make that work with games that didn't?  Again, I do not understand the tech so what do I know...but other than the occasional PS4 game, I pretty much play PS5 only now.  (and only reason play "older" games on  Steam Deck is due to massive backlog..and yes have the X and switch)

 

Honestly, the only 2 "old" games I want to play are PAIN and Split/Second...but I am old and might be misremebering the fun of those.

I know a place called that in Denville, New Jersey. Is that the place your talking about?
I hate that place.


Yep that is the one. I only used them once and it was a positive experience.

Shakedown Hawaii was also the last Wii U physical release right? Funny. These guys should just release that game as every console's last release until the end of time.

i guess im the only one still playing ncaa football 14 on ps3?


You are. I did that about a year ago, got a ps3, got ncaa 14 and all that game reminded me of was how dated it was. Lagging controls and menus be damned. I sold it all and agreed to wait and am now happy something is being done.

My wife brought my phat PS3 there.  Took forwever and cost a lot ($200-250 maybe more) to fix.  Died again on day 91 (just out of warranty) and the entire motherboard was warped and completely unrepairable.

My wife brought a PS3 controller there that just had a sticky R2 trigger.  Cost $35 or more to fix.  Same trigger broke on day 31 (just out of warranty).

I feel like they just stick a solid 24K gold band aid on the problem.

 

LaptopMD in Morristown is excellent in my opinion and seems very honest for repairs (I never used them for PS but they fixed phone, tablet and Switch).  They even told me to not repair some things when the price of a new one was not much more than a repair.

 

 

Enough NJ talk from me that won't interest anyone else.

What would you all recommend if I want to pick up a PS4 Pro right now?

I thought I heard a rumour that Sony was adding PS4 Pro production capacity due to not being able to serve PS5 demand, but new units still seem out of the question.

I am okay with used. Prices on Amazon look to be in the low $300 range. Ebay looks from $50-$100 cheaper or about the same with games included. There are even some special editions, though not clear on how collectible any of it is so probably not an "investment" outside of whether I think it looks cool.

Is Ebay okay these days? I've bought car parts from it, but thats about it in the last 5+ years.

Any recommendations for other places to look? I checked the trade forums, but didn't see anything that recent.

If you aren't looking to hack, the money is probably better spent going toward a PS5 if you can afford it.  Quite a few PS4 games come included if you are a PS+ member ("The Playstation Plus Collection").  If you just want the PS4 then eBay is pretty safe as a buyer.  Other options are a few subreddits like r/gamesale or r/gameswap or GameTZ (although the site is nearly dead).

I'd buy from an adult, responsible collector on Craigslist or possibly Ebay.  Someone that takes photos, has the complete box, and obviously takes good care of their collection. 

 

Generally speaking, buying used consoles is a bad idea.  I would never buy any used systems or accessories from Gamestop.  I honestly can't believe that people do this.  Just about the only time I sell console stuff there is when it's broken or one direction / button doesn't work properly on the controller.   They will take whatever.  Amazon also has no idea what they're doing and you could receive anything in the mail. 

 

If the price starts approaching anything north of '$300 in like new condition' then you should be looking at a new PS5 disc console instead.  It will play PS4 discs.

Buy a PS5.  Easy to get.  Don't waste time on a PS4 Pro.

Definitely don't know where you heard that rumor at but it has no substance as they long since stopped production on ps4 pros annoyingly. 

 

There was a announcement from them months ago that they'd produce a bunch of ps4 slims for a final run this year since they were still in demand and oos at almost all stores (best buy was the only one that had any back in january-march and it was ymmv and in store pick up only) but I don't know if that got cancelled or delayed or what since I don't recall seeing an influx of them anywhere. I can't imagine that the entire stock got bought up by scalpers either.  Getting a ps4 pro at this point will cost you about as much as a ps5 so you might be better off just going that route. 

 

Now if you were looking for a regular slim that'd be more doable if you wanted used for sub 200 or new for around 300-350. But yeah At that point you might as well get a ps5 if you can.  Though it is worth noting that not all ps4 titles are compatible with the ps5 and some have errors, new bugs, run worse than on ps4 hardware.

All I know is the PS5 backwards compatiblity for the PS4 is generally pretty good for what I tried. You can use PS4 controllers too, so it's not loss. I gave my OG PS4 to my sis when I got my PS5, but yeah the PS4 Pro is alright, but if it's scarce I also do recommend the disk PS5. I'm also not one for used systems or controllers unless they're quite a bit cheaper.

I traded my PS4 Pro in after playing everything on my PS5. There's no reason to go back unless you want one of like the two games that don't work on PS5.
