Everyone please read beginning yesterday MA will no longer give you a free upgrade of a SD title to HD. Here's the linkhttps://help.moviesa...-definition-SD-
I didn't know this previously existed or I would have gone hog wild on SD titles. Thanks for squashing my unknown dreams.

Some Best Buy's are doing PSVR Experiences where they are demo'ing them. I believe some gamestops are too. You can check out the list here:
Put your zipcode in. I tried it out for the first time last weekend at BB. I tried 3 different demo's because no one was waiting so he let me keep going. The day prior was my first time ever experiencing VR at the mall in the MS store and I was instantly sold. I previously was skeptical but once I tried it I was bought in. You can't really explain it until you try it. Seeing "videos" of it does not do it any justice. I had no clue what the depth/3D aspect of it was like until I did it, and it's just really damn cool. But it's clearly not for everyone.
This is perfect timing since i'll have a few days off next week to recover from the pink eye.

Citizens is worth 3 bucks right? Even if I'm never going to play it.
Absolutely. Anything under $5 is worth owning just for ownership sake. Just remember this is digital so you can only buy it once so the fun will be short-lived. Just make sure you film yourself pushing the "buy" button so you get your money's worth out of it and the true satisfaction of being a CAG so you can re-live that memory and post the action here for us to enjoy.

So I get home and that 4TB WD drive I cancelled from Rakuten was there waiting for me. Went and checked and I was refunded (via PayPal).
Hmmm... do I keep it or be good and contact them about it?
This is usually where I email customer service for my conscience sake and rely on these dumb companies' lousy customer service to let my email fall through the cracks. I figure if it works in their favor most of the time when I actually need help with an account problem, etc., it should also work in my favor every once in awhile. If they happen to see it and respond in a reasonable timeframe, I am willing to follow through and do the right thing and return it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the first time Sony has rewarded us in any way for earning trophies except for sending out free themes if you platinum certain games (Bloodborne comes to mind)...?
I don't know about you guys, but my trophies certainly give me a boost with the ladies. When I'm out at a club, one of the first things I do is pull up PSN Profiles and the ladies go wild. I should be rewarding Sony for that...

I really enjoyed it but the game is far from perfect. It takes place after Mars War Logs I believe and in the same universe. The combat is wonky at times and requires a ton of dodge rolling on higher difficulty levels, but it is really fun and I enjoyed the story line. I spent $16 on it and don't regret the purchase. Just don't expect perfection and look for soul and you will be presently surprised.
I hate you. I was mildly interested and now i'm probably going to buy it. I need to stop visiting this thread.

Did I miss the BC games today?
Yes you missed it. Microsoft made every Xbox 360 game BC today and also gave them away free but no one wanted to talk about it in this thread because we prefer talking about social and geopolitical issues now. Please check Huffington Post for the latest Xbox news from now on.

For those of you who choose this option who were planning to use free shipping originally, ask yourself this question:
If I were to tell you that I could guarantee that your local Best Buy had a single dollar bill lying on the sidewalk right now and all you had to do was drive over there (or take a bus, etc.) and pick it up, would you do it?
I admit that I get excited about extra savings but sometimes it's easy to miss the forest for the trees.

Does anyone use the parental controls on their kids PS4? A co worker set this up earlier this year and everything was good. Today his wife and son accused him of cutting off access to his games. They are separated and the PS4 is at the wife's place.
He tried to get in but can't remember his password. He will try later tonight.
Did something change with 5.0 firmware that might have caused this? Or maybe the terms of service? My coworker hasn't used his PS4 since the weekend.
Not sure if you figured this out, but I had this exact problem and it seemed to clear up automatically when I went online under my parent account and logged into the Sony account (I just went to the PlayStation store and logged in I think) and it made me accept the new terms and conditions. I guess that then unlocked everything for my kids' accounts automatically. Very dumb that this wouldn't be explained better by Sony.

There's something to be said for a larger public reaction to the death of a musician than mass violence. These things happen so frequently that our society has become immune to them, its just headlines and death stats. It's really weird to have been present for an act of terrorism / mass violence (Charlottesville) and have someone I love be one of the survivors, and see how quickly people stop talking about it or minimize the suffering of those involved as time progresses.
A few things:
1. Social media, by nature, is always moving towards the next topic, so it shouldn't be too surprising this happened.
2. Perhaps people were glad to celebrate the life of a musician and memories of that music than dwell on more negativity of a terrible event.
3. Social media is not the real world. As much as we all use it, it isn't always a true reflection of what people think or dwell on. It's only a glimpse at various thoughts, ideas and events traveling through time.

On one hand, yes, we absolutely do need to gather more information. Maybe we could start with some government funded research into gun deaths but oops... For the last 15 years there's been a ban on any CDC research that might "advocate or lead to gun control." And it was lead by a guy that was deep in the pockets of the NRA, and who (now that he's retired) has come out and said "This thing I proposed was a mistake." http://abcnews.go.co...ory?id=39873289
On the other hand, no, we don't need more information. We got all the evidence we needed the past fifty times this happened.
I'm all for reasonable gun restrictions, but the problem is much deeper than guns. If people want to kill people, they'll do it. If you want to advocate helping reducing domestic violence killings (or other similar issues) by removing guns, that makes more sense, but clearly something like today was planned by someone ready to kill lots of people. My guess is that if he didn't have access to guns, he would have found some other method such as explosives, knives, etc. We already see people in Europe and Asia wielding knives and axes in subways. There are greater societal problems causing these issues in the first place than to just lazily point to guns. The problem is that no one is willing to address those issues because they are too complex and/or would ultimately cause too much sacrifice for what we perceive as a preferred way of life. In additional, most people fool themselves into thinking that certain societal norms and setups are not harmful.
