Hey, does anyone use the PS5 Media Remote to control their TV?  It worked fine on my TCL Roku.  Now it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, usually not.  What gives?

I was just joking, I didn't actually intend snark, although I see now it reads that way. 

 

As far as I can tell there are no improvements, it's just a native PS5 version. Framerates can be set to unlocked (without having to do it from the console and disabling trophies).

 

Reports are that it plays better than the PS4 version, but still tons of frame dropping and screen tearing. And it's actually a downgrade from the PS4 Pro version in terms of resolution. No save transfers from PS4 either, hopefully they'll be patched in. Apparently haptic feedback will be added for some tools later as well. 

I noticed it's 4gb PS5 version vs 12gb for the PS4.  Odd.  Will they fix the PS5 version, or will it always have lower resolution?  That's kind of lame.

What are you guys talking about, you just download the Sony remote play program for PC and plug in a controller. You don't need to make this complicated.

If you want to play wireless via Bluetooth you’ll need a program. Plus it’s useful in other circumstances as well.

What I'm talking about is using an Xbox One controller connected to my PC to play stuff on my PS4 using the Remote Play software.  It's not that complicated.

Check your target circle offers, just got an offer in the app for 10% off electronics/video games. Worked on a pre order for the new dual sense controller color. Grabbed a midnight black.

Thanks for the heads-up. FYI for others it does not (for me at least) work on game preorders.

Mine has been doing e same thing. I switched the Sony Batteries out that came with it which seemed to help a bit; but I think mine and the issue is from rest mode back to active and power cycling (off-on) seemed to help too.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.  After reading this, I swapped the batteries (was waiting for two to charge anyway).  It was either that or ... something else... and now it's back to working!  I'll keep the other suggestions in mind.  Maybe it is a firmware deal.  It is kind of a crappy remote.  Can't someone in Japan design a remote for Sony?  I don't remember any decent ones since PS2.

Just ooc, is the DLC necessary for RE7 to continue to RE8 or can I skip that once I complete the main game (RE7)?

Just play the story DLC. They're short and won't take long. Not A Hero and End of Zoe.

They're not super required but they give some extra background.

I actually loved the PS3 official remote. It might have been sloppy in its layout, but it worked awesomely.

The PS4 semi-offical remote crapped the bed on me within a few months use. They took something that wasn't broke and ruined it.

Couldn't find the offer in my Circle--plenty of deodorant and dishwasher pods though! I guess probably because the last game I bought was MG Survive for $15 2 years ago on Black Friday. (And yes, I had fun playing it!)

Apparently it was sent out to those with a red card, not sure if everyone with a red card got it or not.

Definitely targeted promo as per usual

Dish washer pods?  That's different.  Or are they just the detergent but in a dissolvable packaging that goes inside the soap cube/powder and such tray? As it would be weird to use them like you do laundry pods. 

 

 

edit I just got the email about the 10% so I guess they are slowly rolling them out?

FYI: If you use dishwasher pods, make sure you also buy some liquid soap for the prerinse part of the soap dispenser or your dishes aren't getting clean.  The pods are great but locked until the main wash meaning the prerinse is just water and not doing it's job.  Found this out last year and our dishes come out way cleaner, talking day and night.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that one.  I liked it too!  I didn't mind that it had a million buttons.  The PS5 remote is actually missing buttons it should have.  If it were some kind of drive for simplicity, that would be okay, but in that case, they absolutely effed up the layout.  It is better than the PS4 remote tho, I think, by quite a bit.  

 

I guess the PS3 remote was my favorite after all.  :(

I'd like to play Sackboy at some point, but that game is practically screaming "PS Plus game" in the near future.

If you look at launch platform games. It took Knack over 4 years to hit PS Plus. What makes you think Sony is going to put Sackboy on Plus so soon?

I would expect to see something like The Pathless or an upgraded Death Stranding on PS Plus long before Sackboy.

First party, not really a standout game among the launch games, I doubt sales are really high for it anymore.  Knack was one of the headline games for the PS4 among the launch lineup.  I could be wrong, but if I were deciding for Sony, it would be one I would be willing to sacrifice to PS Plus - good enough to generate attention and goodwill, but not something that really drives sales.

It mirrors Knack's situation in just about every way except reviews. Sack boy has gotten universally good reviews. I can't find anything on sales for Sack boy (or Demon's Souls for that matter), but Knack sold enough for a sequel to be created. I just think you're going to be waiting a long time for it to possibly hit PS Plus.

Possibly, but I'm willing to wait for it.  If it is a couple years so be it, lots of stuff in the backlog.  It wasn't advice to others that are interested in playing it now, just personal view.

Sackboy was easily one of the standout launch games for me. One of the best platformers of the last few years.

Plus it’s one of the best games of all time. We’re talking about sack boy which is nowhere near knacks level

I'm sure that one is coming, too.  I already got it for free on PC along with a video card I bought and it was thoroughly generic.
