The graphics appear to have been scaled down slightly compared to Second Son. The view distance looks hazy. No idea why they did this. Perhaps to keep the file size down to a respectable level, or to improve the framerate. Still a good game though.

Nice. PSN is down for several days. Comes back up. Can't play Advanced Warfare for some server related reason or another that there's basically NO information about. And really just about ready to give up on Destiny. While i liked the story and everything, and the game is rather fun.... it annoys the sh*t out of me that:

A) I have to basically know a plethora of people who own PS4's who play the game to help out with raids, or even just basically the weekly hardcore's most of the time.

B) I've been playing the game... well... since launch day, and have YET to EVER get any sort of Exotic Bounty to do, and the only exotic weapon i have is Suros Regime, which i had to earn the Strange Coins for in order to purchase, which now basically feels like it was a waste of time, since pretty much everything can rape me 5 ways from Sunday.

I had so much hope for the game... but this goofy crap is annoying as hell at this point. I WANT to play the Raid's and such... but i hate that i'd have to go to something like DestinyLFG in order to find people looking for people to help with the raid, or find a group to invite me, then they'd have to add me as a friend, blah blah blah.

I'm in a similar position to you with Destiny, most of the people I played with since launch have stopped playing and it's beginning to be a real chore trying to solo daily missions and weekly strikes, feel like I'm not really getting my money's worth not being able to do the raids as well, regretting getting the season pass, haven't really touched it since the DLC was released.

The trick to getting exotic bounties is to hand in a load (like 5+) of the standard bounties all at once, I've had 4 or 5 so far.

It's ok you're not missing much, the exotic bounties require several steps and they generally have you performing many boring tasks to satisfy the bounty. I'd much rather just buy the items from Xur myself.

I wouldn't.... especially at this point, where Strange Coins are more useful for upgrading the exotics and such.

Don't really mind if I'm honest. Infamous: SS was THE game of 2014 for me and I can't wait to play through the DLC.

I:SS is arguably the best looking game across all platforms of 2014 imo. Nothing else like it. Except maybe KZ4 and thats on the PS4 also, so...so there.

Me and a friend are actively playing raids. We tend to use Reddit or the Bungie forums to find raids to join. But if anyone is looking to do raiding let me know so I can organise one.

Finding two people to do the weekly strikes is not that hard, but still if you donít do in the first couple of days it gets harder. Iím still to try the new raid because I just canít find a group that has a slot or is doing it in the right time for me Ė so Iíll gladly join you if we organize ourselves here. Dailies are doable solo without a problem.
On the subject of exotics Ė the ones from the bounties are not very good, may be with the exception of the Thorn (the hardest bounty by far) and the Super Good Advice (the easiest one by far). I got like 12 exotics already from bounties, nightfall and Xur, but I tend to use only 3-4 of them. Since you canít equip more than one some good legendries are a must. I find the two snipers Ė Icebreaker and Patience And Time, and the Gjallahorn rocket launcher most useful.
Also lets move to the proper thread if we are going to discuss more about Destiny.

Looks like Sony finally has a reasonably priced subscription model for "Playstation Now" game streaming. http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2015/0...s-for-15month/

Agreed. That's much better compared to how they had it during their beta testing.

Not bad considering the lack of games for the first 6 months or so. In terms of the technology and the vastly superior DS4 controller, it is little surprise.

That is cool that the PS4 sold 18.5 Million units world wide. It took the PS3 several years to reach that much and beyond. Maybe if it keeps this up the PS4 might be the new best selling console of all time.

^Doubt it. The PS2 sold 150 million by the end of its life cycle and with these consoles rumored to have shorter life span unlike the ps3 had, the finale numbers will be very low compared to the ps2 and probably the ps3 also. 2 years short of a decade was a damn long time to only sell 80 million ps3s, for comparison, the wii was sitting at 101 million in the same time frame.

Also, alot of families bought the ps3 because of it including a blu-ray player, the ps4 doesnt have that crutch this time and as its atm, it has barely any media playback features, more so when compared the the X1.

Very true. I forgot that the current gen consoles might have a shorter life span than the previous generation. It could be very possibly for it to surpass the PS1 and Wii though.

Both of those consoles sold more than the ps3. The first run of the Playstation console sold just over 100 million, the slim model sold just under 30 million.

But hey, this isnt a pissing match. Im just saying whats on the wiki pages and comparing time frames and the markets of then and now. I hope the ps4 and x1 do sell more than their predecessors, but only for the right reasons and not purely because they hung around and overstayed their welcome.

If you look at what rubbish is on TV these days, it isn't too much of a surprise. People want to be entertained. Console gaming is the only place to be nowadays.

I'm really curious to see how well it does in the next 3 months with some exclusives and decent 3rd party software coming between January and March. If it's doing this well with very little, imagine after Dying Light, Evolve, The Order 1886, and Bloodbourne. Not to mention Playstation Now getting a proper subscription rate and more games.

I still think remote gaming gives them a HUGE advantage over Microsoft. With as bad as Microsoft is doing in mobile, from phones to tablets, you'd think they would have offered a remote play option to combat sony's. Especially with that huge cloud/server farm they keep bragging about.

Perhaps Microsoft don't see the revenue to be worth it, or the up keep costs might be too high for them to risk it. I know Microsoft is working on a rival to project Morpheus. So it may well be they have the R&D team at full stretch.

Having messed around with my cousins Occulus Rift sdk 2 kit, I have to say I'm really interested in seeing what they do in the VR space on consoles.

I would say don't bother yet, unless a console ships with a peripheral developers won't really use it.

Sony may well release that morpheus VR kit to be compatible with ps4, but as to whether games use it or not is another question.
