Sorry, I probably expressed that confusingly; it'll be 4.5m from the TV wall to the sofa.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I've been getting a sporadic problem where the PS4 tries to download Last of Us updates, but fails to do so. I therefore keep getting annoying alerts whilst I'm plaing, stating its trying to download, followed shortly after by a failure notification. The only way I could find to stop it was to delete Last of Us from the console completely.

Shame on you.

Get speakers and place them in an equilateral triangle with your head. Tweeters at ear level and slightly downward pointing.

Yeah this has been happening to me recently as well.

After a bit of a gaming hiatus i bought the new AC london, Batman and Just Cause. Then spent like 3 days trying to download all the updates. very annoying.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I just spent the last couple of hours sifting through boxes of cables and finally found what need to hardline my ps4 to the interwebs.

Now the downloading of game updates is quick and it seems to have resolved the issues.

Paddy, is your ps4 using wifi?

Cheers

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Is there any news on when PS Now will come to CH? Apparently the newer Samsung Smart TVs will allow you to stream and d/l games from the PS Now library. all you need is a DS4 controller.

And sorry for the late response, yes my PS4 is connected over ethernet.

Yep from PS store, but only scraped the surface so far. My daughter is a little further in and I have to say, it looks astounding.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

If you have playstation plus, tropico is free this month, i'm hooked. It's a sim city like game which i'm a huge fan of, the mechanics are a bit simpler and it's got a more arcade like feel, but gives the satisfaction of building up your little tropical Island over many hours. It's keeping me occupied before i cave in and buy uncharted.

Also, the new remote play feature is awesome, download the app on pc or mac, connect your ps4 controller via usb, and play your ps from anywhere in the world. I've only tried it at home so far, it needs a fast connection, but i'm looking forawrd to trying it out next time i'm away.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

My thoughts on U4:

So far i have had 2 sittings, and now am on the final chapter with the boss guy.

Overall pace of game is rather slow.

Even on the hardest setting it is not that challenging.

Gamplay graphics are average. The cut scenes are very good though.

The whole style of the game is not very 'uncharted', it more 'the last of us' esque.

I dont get why all the reviews online are showing 10/10.

In summary, worth a play through max twice. I would recomend not getting it from the PS store, so that you can take it back after you are done. I regret not buying the disc now.


cheers
SC
