Ended up with Until Dawn, Little Big Planet 3, Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain for $60. Thanks for the recommendations!

Is a PS4 Pro worth it? I've been weighing up finally getting a PS4 for a while (I've almost cleared my PS3 backlog!) but having just got a 4K TV will I even notice the difference? Is it just the resolution difference or is there anything else?

I think some games also get a slight frame rate boost. As far as I know, it's a fair purchase if you can afford the extra expense, but it really doesn't do anything crucial the stock PS4 doesn't already. For example, no PS4 models play UHD Blu-Rays, whereas the considerably cheaper Xbox One S does.

If you can afford it I'd recommend the Pro. The difference isn't massive but it is significant enough that when the wife and I play she wants to use the Pro because of the graphics and the fact it loads a little bit faster.

I'm at that point now where my console feels a bit long in the tooth and I don't know whether to get a pro or just wait it out. Hope they sort some sort of announcement soon.

I've had my original PS4 since launch, and I've said since the Pro came out that I'd upgrade if mine broke down, but wouldn't bother otherwise. Now that we're even closer to the next generation it seems like an even smarter move. Just hoping my console holds out for that long. Haven't had a single issue with it yet, either.

My guess is that the next consoles will launch at the end of next year. Sony's missing E3 this year, and I'd have thought that they'd be everywhere they could if they were releasing a new system this year, but they've also said that we're approaching the end of this console generation.

I'm in the same boat. Even though some times it sounds like it's about ready to blast off.

Rumors are announcements this year, out next.

 

But! Last time around, the PS5 was announced in February, released in November.

Man, I've had PS4 since near launch and I feel like it's way too soon for the PS5. Then I realize it was darn near six years ago now. That doesn't even seem right.

Right? It was the first (and likely only) console I got at launch, and I feel like it's just starting to hit its stride.

It always surprises me when there's talk of the next generation as my console still feels new to me at that point, but when you add up the time, it ends up being just about right compared to other jumps.

JUst unlocked the ability to do the challenge tasks in Spider-Man. I don't think I'm gonna like them (not a fan of time trials)..... do I have to get gold on all of them to get the plat? Speaking of... what all do I need to do? All costumes? All abilities? All gadgets?

....and done. Mostly silver, but some gold (on the fight/stealth ones)

So I went to Gamestop today to get a gift for my middle kid and they were selling No Man's Sky for ten bucks. Was on "clearance." The cashier told me stuff I already knew (how much of a letdown it was pre-patch) but like... it's literally the same game and they were just selling it for ten bucks, new, sealed. Cheaper than the USED even.

So that's how I got No Man's Sky.

So now I have:

Horizon Zero Dawn
Spidey
No Man's Sky
LittleBigPlanet 3

and a couple old PS2 games (including the Kingdom Hearts compilation that just came out).

Spider-Man is soooo much fun. Happy I waited until after RDR2 to play it or I may have left it on the side. I’m not done a few stories but cleaned up the towers, backpacks and thugs so that was quite a few hours of repetitive fights but sooooooo fun.

Just finished Spider-Man. Such a good game! Although I feel the main story was a little short.

 

Got one my trophy to go for the plat... just gotta 100% the districts. Except that means like... 40 crimes.

 

 

the last scenes with Otto and Aunt May were both so well done. You could hear the emotion in the voice acting.... It broke my heart

:(

 

Although I do hope they do a sequel! They have to right, with the Mile's bite right? Plus would love to see Venom and Carnage and the rest of the villians who didn't show up!

 

Probably won't play the dlc though. Anyone wanna break down what happens in it?

That’s what’s keeping me from picking it up. I fear I’d end up doing a lot of grinding and repetitive combat. When playing Red Dead, I’m always thinking that I’ll get every Legendary Animal, every cigarette card, etc. There’s enough variety there to make it worth it, but I feel it’s a major exception amongst video games.

THe combat can be repetitive, but the main reason to play is for the story, voice acting, and of course, the quips. And I guess web swinging is pretty swell too.

Only issue I've had with mine since launch was with disks not ejecting or inserting. Nothing a screwdriver didn't fix. 

If I had a choice of a pro or ps4 originally I'd go pro all day but I'm in the same boat as long as there's no issues I'm best waiting
