Help me understand why Ghost is an amazing game? For me its quite like AC with a touch better combat. ITs still just riding around to rather uninspiring quests or tasks in a extremely beautiful setting
It's AC but with better combat and visuals, and even more pointless side quests and collectibles to waste your time on.

It's a truly fantastic game. Disappointing how short it was but it's concise story actually made a really enjoyable experience. It's a lot lot better than the original in my view.

Huge games tend to be top of my list but i do think there's something to be said for shorter games perhaps with stories built out further via paid DLC. I'm guessing DLC take up is quite low so they instead pad games out with filler to justify the costs.
It’s rare for me to complete a game! I often get bored, put it down and don’t pick up again. Nice I’ve managed to finish this. Plus being a marvel fan I enjoyed the story. Excited to play the original now to be fair.

Just completed Spider-Man MM - absolutely loved it. Visually incredible. Not played the first one yet. But this is one of the best games I’ve played.
I Platinumed it last night funny enough. Very enjoyable game, although if you're not a trophy hunter then it is very short. I think I prefer it to the original. I assume you have the PS5? If so they've done a remastered version of the original game. Although I'm not sure if you can get it standalone.

I think the next game I'm really looking forward to playing on the PS5 is Control Ultimate Edition. I didn't play it on the PS4 due to the performance issues, but they're obviously releasing a next-gen version in March. Can't wait to play it. The game looks amazing.

I thought they already updated it? Didn’t realise it’s coming in March! Exciting though always looking for story driven single player games.

I think they may have done little updates to stabilize the version that's out now, but the true next-gen version comes out at the end of February digitally and in March for physical release. They released a short clip the other day showing off the Ray Tracing. Can't wait.

Yes I purchased the ultimate edition so looking forward to starting it. Think the original will have a good nostalgia kick as I watched the cartoons growing up. Looking forward to battling some good villains.

Oh wow! Wasn’t aware of this. Wonder how much it’ll be on the store? Think I’ll get this.

Oh right! So will that one be upgraded in feb then?
I believe so. That's the one I'm getting anyway. February the 2nd, apparently. This is the blurb on the PSN Store:

Control Ultimate Edition contains the main game and all previously released Expansions ("The Foundation" and "AWE") in one great value package.

A corruptive presence has invaded the Federal Bureau of Control…Only you have the power to stop it. The world is now your weapon in an epic fight to annihilate an ominous enemy through deep and unpredictable environments. Containment has failed, humanity is at stake. Will you regain control?

Winner of over 80 awards, Control is a visually stunning third-person action-adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Blending open-ended environments with the signature world-building and storytelling of renowned developer, Remedy Entertainment, Control presents an expansive and intensely gratifying gameplay experience.

Buy the digital PS4™ version of Control Ultimate Edition from PlayStation™Store and download the PS5™ version at no extra cost when it launches in late 2020.
Obviously the PSN store hasn't updated the next-gen upgrade date. But from all the reading I've done on the subject over the last few weeks, the Ultimate Edition is the one you need for the upgrade.

Excellent! You’re a hero. Will buy this now before they hike up the price. Thank you.

I thought they were sturdier than the newer ones. Surprised it broke.

Since we're on the topic, do you know whether it's possible to play PS3 games on PS5? Or is there no backwards emulation that extends that far back?
Only via the PSNow service (stream only) you won't get every PS3 game on there (or even 10% of them) but the big hitters like Red Dead Redemption, MGS, Devil May Cry etc are there.

Rumours of a stock drop tomorrow (U.K.)
Been patiently waiting all month. Typically back to work tomorrow for 4 days and we're ridiculously busy so going to be tough to keep an eye on any drops. Just really hoping I get lucky and can finally get one. Created accounts on almost every site that have potential stock drops coming :lol:

Seems like the ps5 pulse headsets are fair game to the scalpers also currently. Anyone recommend a good alternative?
They're available for back order here and supposedly back in stock on 25th Jan.

I ordered the charging station off them but that won't be in stock until the end of the month either (hopefully) so can't vouch for them yet. I saw the site recommended on reddit for what it's worth. :lol:

May be the 14th not 13th! Was reading/posting whilst watching the match and not paying 100% attention

Platinumed it too. Wasn’t until I did new game plus I realised how short the story was

But still thought it was superb. Put over 20 hours into it and we’ll worth the price for me anyway

It’s a bit mad how little amount of games that are coming out for the ps5. The next game I’m even remotely interested in is Returnal, which looks good and after that nothing is possibly coming out till October. Barren year so far.

Hitman 3
Prince of Persia remake
Nier Replicant
Horizon Forbidden West
Ratchet
Returnal
Outriders
Ghostwire Tokoyo
Deathloop
Far Cry 6
Back 4 Blood
GT 7
ME : Legendary edition
Gotham Knights
Hogwarts Legacy
Resident Evil Village
Battlefield

Then there’s stuff like Elden Ring and God of War that could come out later this year.

That is more than enough. People have to remember there’s a pandemic and that has impacted a lot of games that were due out this year and even 2022. Nobody wants another Cyberpunk solution where games are rushed out.

I'd be shocked if we saw Horizon or GoW this year.

Looking forward to ratchet and clank!

There was very little from Sony at start of previous gen too. For me Demons Souls and Astro alone make it better than Ps4 launch though

I think this generation (well, PS5, anyway) is the best in terms of the games that have already been released and what's coming up this year. Not only the exclusives but the upgrades on older games. I've already mentioned Control in this thread which is the upgrade I'm looking forward to the most, but I'm also looking forward to playing Ghost of Tsushima in 60fps as I haven't played that game yet. Personally I think the PS5 is looking extremely strong in 2021. Although I can't see God of War being released this year.

Yeah, to be honest, I have such a large back catalogue of games to play I kind of need a small break without any major game releases. I have to finish AC Valhalla, then I'll jump into Miles Morales. I also want to jump into some of my older games that I never finished such as Ghost of Tsushima, Days Gone and potentially Fallout 4. If that can tide me over for a while then Cyberpunk may have been updated/fixed and I can do playthrough number two. Good time for gaming.

So... anyone know anything about upcoming stock? I asked for money for Xmas and have got enough for one.. but still looks like it’s ultra impossible to get one..?

I keep seeing different specification rumours, is there anything to it and waiting?
