In Topic: 4k TV for PS4 Pro recommendations?

09 July 2017 - 10:23 PM

The TV goes blank/black at random sometimes while I'm playing PS4, too. If I turn it off and back on, or hit home and go back to the PS4 input, then it's fine.

Please see attached image. Are these stuck/dead pixels? Can I fix it? I sure don't want to return it or send it for repair.

Edit: stupid phone... trying to swipe around the screen and it goes back to a previous page instead--wish I could turn that off. That's what the back button is for. Image is attached again now.


Edit edit: try #3...

I don't care about the BC arguments and vitriol (except to say, jeezus you guys--Sony ain't your mama).  I do care about BC, though.  I don't care how they do it; I'd just like them to do something.  They could at least find some way to let us play the PS1 and PS2 shit we bought on the PSN, on our PS4.  My PS3 can play PS1, 2 and 3 stuff I bought on PSN.  That's kewl.  My Vita can play PSP stuff I bought on the PSN and PS1 stuff.  That's kewl too.  Throw me a bone.  So maybe it's tough to get PS3 crap working, but gawd, write a PS1/2 emulator, and if we can't play discs, at least let us play crap we bought.  Use that PS4 Pro Power.  Hell, even my PS3 can play the PS2 stuff I bought on PSN, and that's my non-BC PS3.


I'm sick of my PS3.  I wish my PS4 just played it all.  I still have a huge PS3 backlog.  Do goddamn magic for me.  I'm a consumer who has consumed a lot.  I see the Xbox kids getting it; I don't care why, cause I ain't always reasonable.


But I'm also one of those weirdos who thinks that if I bought a Nintendo Virtual Console game on Wii, then Wii U, then 3DS... that I should damn well not have to buy it again on my Switch.

The supposed heavy curation of Switch titles seems to have ended long enough ago for some of the titles that came out this week to happen.

Nintendo must make enough money on shovelware that they couldn't help themselves.  I guess it's for the greater good of Mario.  Funny, because I was looking at the list of sales and thinking what a pile of garbage exists on those systems.  Guess that's how the Switch will end up, too.  Doesn't hurt me any, but yeah, curation?

I was a kid when Star Fox came out (1992?). I liked it, and I wasn't terrible at it. There was a competition, and a special competition Star Fox cart. The guys at the local game store were all older than me and liked me. I played the competition cart, without practicing, and did really poorly. I could tell they were disappointed. People always make that assumption, that I'm actually good at video games. :)

It wasn't fair to expect me to be awesome without a practice run though. I guess I should have just played the hell out of Star Fox before going in, or asked for another try. I was really shy. Now I'm slightly less shy but probably 1/4 as social.
