Anyone considering buying destiny when it comes out?

I have high hopes for this game..
I preordered to get the beta access, but it was just "OK", nothing special really. Need to work out how to cancel a PS store online ore-order.

Go to the sony store on the internet and it is quite easy to cancel pending orders in there. I had to do it, then re-order Watchdogs because there was a bug not allowing it to be downloaded at launch.

Great.. I didn't pre-order was just going to pick up a copy when I'm in UK literally just after launch day. I guess with these types of games they're either hit or miss.

Looking forward to GTA re-released on the PS4, the online element was brilliant. Especially after playing watchdogs.. which was pretty poor in my opinion.

On a side note is PSN network working now, I tried last night but I guess that DDOS attack still had it down?

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Nice to see a zurich PS4 thread! Just got one the other weekend, but to my extreme annoyance my Sony MDR-1R headphones are not compatible!! Are the Playstation headsets really the only way to go here? Any tips on cheaper/ more all round headphones out there?

I killed the big man himself the other night - it was pretty easy on Normal, no deaths at all I don't think, maybe it is just my mad skillz.

Any idea how the 'gifts' drop? I have had a couple to send both of you now, usually after boss mobs, but sometimes just a random elite kill.

I heard a little tip from PS4 podcasts - if you don't mind the annoyance of not being able to regulate your friends list properly (I would), just add 2000 people who play diablo and you'll receive hundreds of gifts a day!

I just plug my Sennheiser Moventums into the PS4 controller jack - that works perfectly - I was genuinely shocked how well the directional sound works.

Ramp the game difficulty to the highest you possibly can, or it quickly becomes a bore-fest as you rarely die even on the bigger boss fights later.

I'm playing on hard on my Demon Hunter and I die quite a bit. Also started a Barbarian and a Witch Doctor, hence my slow levelling. I die much less frequently on my Barb and mobs are easier to kill, IMHO.

BTW Did anyone end up getting Destiny? I'm still undecided and have Last of Us, DIII, Wolfenstein and CoD still to finish :s

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

great thread, guys!

I'm thinking about perhaps buying a PS4 at some point, but I'm curious about how the account systems work.

Differences between US, UK, and Swiss (if existent) accounts/marketplaces? Are are there big differences in games and free games for PS+ available? Are there big differences in prices?

thanks!

I played Wizard on my first run though, and even on the hardest difficulty level I felt massively overpowered. I could literally stand there and just destroy everything while taking minimal damage, and it was only the Elites or Uniques that could give me a scratch. This carried on right until the end game. All of the bosses were way too easy to defeat, barring Azmodan.

Started a Witch Doctor now on the hardest level available so am hoping it gives more of a challenge.

Still want to play through with someone in Co-op mode too.

This is all quickly researchable info if you go to the respective websites for each country's PSN stores.

Are you sure about this? I have already tried and the sites are a) different from each other in the way they showcase what's available - so hard to compare and b) not straight marketplace site, which is where you notice the big differences. I assume the actual marketplace is in the platforms - and it would make sense. But the sites are all trying me to sell different stuff related to not only PS4 and what I would like is to see the catalog for each country (or hear from someone who has seen it).

I might be wrong thought, but I still see no catalog in the sites.

The Last of Us
: Remastered (PS4)
Price
: 39.99/€44.99/AU$62.95

Pretty sure all of these stores list the games at the brief glance I had...

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Just finished The Last Of Us... wow, what a ride. Tense, emotional, and sometimes a wee bit scary. Such a great and harrowing story, combined with fantastic visuals, it puts many films to shame. Amazing.

I now have the "Left Behind" story to go through, then will start Tomb Raider.

I'm just about to start "Spring". It really is an engrossing, beautiful, well-acted treat isn't it? The game play is none-too-shabby either.

Played the demo and couldn't stand it... story is weak and the gameplay was very repetitive. Enemy AI was also terrible, and according to reviews that hasn't changed.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Some awesome deals on the PS4 at media Markt at the moment...

PS4 with 3 games - 449chf https://shop.mediamarkt.ch/de/gaming...usverkauf_ps4=

PS4 with Destiny - 449chf https://shop.mediamarkt.ch/de/gaming...l/idp1pgls64xi

Considering most reputable places are 449chf for just the console, that ain't bad.
