I had the same issue until I tried this.  Power on the TV and any receiver fully before powering up the PS4.  I had issues with mine being uncooperative without the components being powered up first.  Hope this helps.

LOL I just wanted to have my prediction in writing for future reference. Thief just seems like that type of game- AAA style title that's getting polarizing reviews, has no marketing to speak of and probably won't hit its sales goal. Kind of fits the M.O. for the "big Plus game of the month" choice lately.

Xbox One:

And they gave the Xbox One version the win, which goes against every past DF faceoff. Always a higher framerate won out regardless of any other advantages, and it was always in favor of the 360 regardless of any advantages the PS3 version offered. They have now reversed that position to give the Xbox a win.

Maybe this is an attempt to stay relavant when the PS4 is always clearly the victor, but they are now projecting their bias for Xbox platforms even more clearly, grasping at any straw left, and it is going to end up ruining them in the end.


Give them clicks if you want to, I don't recommend it.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-thief-next-gen-face-off

I have the game ( gamefly, I didn't buy it) and I think there are some merits to what DF is saying. Even though edges are crisp I've noticed some pop-in. Cutscenes are trash, it's like playing one of the god of war remakes from PS2 on PS3, where the game is sharp and then the cutscenes go to a blurry FMV looking stuff. Not to mention that it jerks (frame drops) too during these. So, while the PS4 may have better FPS performance, it is still really poor.

Hey, I FINALLY found a PS4 today. Everything seems to be OK except the controller doesn't vibrate. Did anybody else have this issue? I made sure it was turned on in the settings menu.

Thanks,

The Neogaf thread on this article is full of stuff that Digital Foundry missed. The Xbox One version has several other shortcomings that they left out of the analysis and users are having problems finding examples of the lack of AF in the actual game on PS4.

The whole thing smells wrong and it is just another example of Digital Foundry projecting a bias into a technical analysis.

1080i I think. That's what it says when I switch sources. The Sony that it worked on previously was 720p, though.

Viewing my video from the folder in the profile menu was way less irritating than accessing it again via the share button (I probably would have stumbled on that folder eventually while doing something unrelated...but it would have taken me a while).

While viewing from that folder, the fast forward/rewind menu screen can be banished by pressing the triangle, fyi.

I did have to link an FB account to edit, but it was pretty slick after that. You were also right in that you don't have to share FB info in your PSN profile after linking them up.

At least it will make for a nice early Plus freebie possibility. The price drops should come quickly as well, and who knows, a patch may improve the game's lackluster performance. (These patches have been very common this gen)

PS+ question. Been looking around and I found used PS4. If I buy it and subscribe to PS+ can I download previous months games like Resogun or am I limited to this months games?

It's not the type of game I usually play, but with this early drought I am. It's alright so far. And now back to Dragon's Dogma on the 360...

I thought once the PS+ games end for that month they are no longer free? So are you saying if I miss downloading a free ps + game, I can still download it for free several months later? That is a great deal if true. I didn't think that was the case.

I think Resogun is still a free game for PS+ members. When I reactivated my PSN account last year I wasnt able to go back and download previous freebies.

This seems to be the case. I went to the Plus site and it lists Outlast as expiring in almost two days.

Resogun is still there so I'd grab it before it's gone.

PS+ monthly game is different than the Instant Library. Some offering go to Instant Library and some don't (Correct if wrong).

Any free game you get as Plus member deactivates when you become non-Plus, but then reactivates when you are Plus again; you do not permanently lose access to any free game you get.

There are normally two types of "free" dloads for. PS+, going back to how it worked last gen. The Instant Game Collection has a list of games members can get at no extra cost, and the list stays unchanged for many months. Then there are the individual free dloads that come up every month. They are only available for a week, usually.

If you are a member and complete the dload transaction in PSN, you permanately have it in your account to re-dload anytime you want, even if you stop subscribing but resubscribe later.

If you are not a member and a free game disappears from the PS+ store, you won't be able to play it at no charge unless they put it up again (I don't think they've ever done that, but I'm not sure).

What game(s) are you playing? I know Killzone utilizes rumble a lot. Think AC4 and Knack did as well. If rumble isn't working I'd look to get the controller replaced by Sony under warranty.

That is not entirely true.

PS Plus free games have limited windows of availability, so if you want to get a free game available now, then you better move quickly.

You should, however, be able to join PS Plus now, and basically "buy" them now. I can go onto the website and select the "download" option and it'll automatically download to either playstation. I've done this for games I've already owned (Metro, Bioshock Inifinity, etc) so that I have a backup digital record of ownership on top of my disc. Since you do not known a PS4 today, I hope that doesn't prevent you basically "reserving" the game to download in the near future. No promises, but I hope that works for you.

Warning: I make a lot of mistakes but occasionally I learn from them!

Once you "buy" the game it is in your purchase history and can be downloaded again at any time as long as Sony has it available on their severs. I see games I "bought" back when PS3 first came out; tempted to see which I can still DL.

Thanks, I had to reset the controller with a paper clip and re-pair it with the USB cable. So far, so good.
