Question about PS4 Pro after PS5 purchase - Need Opinions/Info

25 September 2020 - 04:30 AM

I have my PS5 preordered and am looking forward to it.  However, I am now looking at my PS4 Pro and wondering what to do with it.  I have never "collected" older systems.  Once I move on, I tend to sell, trade, or give them to a relative.  PS3 was the first one I kept, after upgrading to the PS4 incase I decided I needed to play PS1,2,3 games.  Truth be told, I have only used it 4-5 times over the last 5 years.  It's collecting dust in the back of my storage closet right now.  If I trade my PS4 Pro in near/at PS5 launch, I can get around 175 dollars credit for it.  What I am trying to decide is if it's worth keeping.  So, here are my questions:

 

1.) I know that PS4 games (or 99% of them as they like to say) will work on PS5.  So, don't need the Pro for that.  But, how about the digital stuff I have bought on Playstation Network over the last generation.  Will it work on PS5?

2.) Will the remasters and other older Playstation games that were reworked to run on PS4 (and by that I mean sold on PSN listed as running on the PS4) work on PS5?

3.) What are the reasons, outside of the collecting aspect, to keep the PS4 Pro?

 

I have already decided to give my Xbox One X to my nephew if I actually go through with completing my preorder for the Series X - depends on finances and other issues in November.  But that was an easy choice considering EVERYTHING is suppose to work on Series X.  LOL, it's amazing how the tides have turned with Sony and MS in just one generation.  Please share your opinions.


Xbox All Access Xbox One X questions - anyone?

22 September 2020 - 03:43 AM

Okay, I am very interested in using the All Access service to get an X-Box Series X system.  35 dollars a month with 0% interest sounds like a win-win.  However, the info on this option is very limited.  I can find a few links online, but no concrete data.

 

Will this option be available tomorrow at 11:00am?

How will it work?  I know that this process requires extra information and a credit check.  I am not afraid of a credit check.  However, I am afraid of how long it will take.  What's to keep the systems from selling out in the time it takes me to input my information and complete the credit check?

 

Anyone who can explain or who has experience with this service with the X-Box One please LMk.


Verizon Up Rewards Free Copy of Avengers Game Question

31 August 2020 - 02:45 AM

I got the Verizon Up Rewards Code a few weeks back.  Installed the beta on PS4 and played it for a few days.  So, my question is - the Up Rewards, if I read it right, includes the full game.  How is that going to work?  Will our Beta code just convert over to the full version of the game?  Or will we get another code?  I have to cancel my physical copy with Best Buy soon if I am really getting a free digital copy.  However, want to make sure/understand process first.  Any info would be appreciated.


Gamestop shipping - anyone else having issues?

12 July 2020 - 07:15 AM

I ordered some items over the last 2 week during the sales.  The 6" Scale Star Wars Snowspeeder was shipped UPS and arrived in like 3 days.  Since then, they have shipped me 2 other collectibles and a set of games - all 3 orders shipped USPS.  However, despite the fact that the items were listed as shipped 7 days ago, the tracking numbers still say, "awaiting carrier pickup" on Gamestop's site and then "USPS currently awaiting package" on USPS site.  It's getting ridiculous.  I tried contacting Gamestop on Friday - and after an hour on hold, all I got was, "Yeah, don't know.  I will pass it on to my supervisor."  Anyone else hear of or experienced anything similar lately?  I have had issues with them shipping in the past, but once it said SHIPPED, everything went fine.  Not sure what's going on now.  8-(


Final Fantasy Remake - Double 10 Dollar Rewards for Preorder?

08 April 2020 - 06:25 PM

Not sure if it was a glitch or intentional, but I got a notice this morning saying that my copy of Final Fantasy Remake Standard Edition had shipped.  That made me happy enough, as I was afraid it might be delayed - had it pre-ordered on Amazon but it shifted to delivery unknown earlier in the week so I canceled it.  But, back on topic - about 3 hours later I got a message that I had a 25 dollar reward.  I did not have anywhere near that many points before so I looked for where they came from.  When I clicked on the Final Fantasy VII Remake purchase, this is what it said:

 

Total Points: 1142

My Best Buy Visa Purchase Bonus - 83

$10 Dollar Certificate for Final Fantasy VII Preorder - 500

$10 Dollar Certificate for Final Fantasy VII Preorder - 500

Base Points - 59

 

Did this happen to anyone else?  Considering I preordered it when I still had Gamers Club - so got it for 51.23 ... this has been an especially Cheap Ass Gamer type of purchase.

 

P.S.  Sigh, I really miss Gamers Club.  Hate spending 64.04 on new releases (that includes local tax).
