I agree, I was surprised how light the grey was on a Batman console.
Almost seems like an obvious throwback to the original Batman grey, which is fine, but it doesn't match Arkham Knight.
I'll be skipping the MGSV for sure; I can't get myself to every own an FSU colored anything.
Nayan and Epyon415 like this.

PlayStation 4

Mine installed fine but ever since the update my PS4 will not wake from rest mode correctly and the light just blinks blue. Have to hold the power button down for 10 seconds to force it off, then it scolds me for not turning it off properly. This happens about every 3rd or 4th time waking from rest mode since the last update.

I get the triple beep thing going on every third or fourth time going into rest mode. It's annoying that Sony still has issues with their firmware updates. Makes me wonder if it has something to do with those who installed a larger hard drive.

Haven't tried the usb method - next time. Since summer is back I am not on into the gaming as much with the crap I am doing around the house. Ticked me off though when I wanted to play this weekend and I had that error. Tried restarting a couple times to no avail

Maybe I missed it, but which thumbsticks did you buy? The left stick on both of my controllers are balding, could probably use replacements.

Madmodz on Amazon. Think its part of Madcatz or whatever. Works great so far!

Had the same issue after the patch that added something to rest mode (maybe suspend/resume). IIRC i had to go into safe mode, run initialization or something. Check the interwebs, there is a fix.

You can get replacement sticks like the ones you have, you can get all metal replacements or you can just gt caps which go over the balding ones.

Personally I just replaced what was there. Caps just mask things and I wasn't keen on the metal ones the xbone had. But yea there's a lot of choice out there. While your controller is under the knife you could also get new buttons and faceplates too.

I think the metal ones would not be as grippy... there is a lot more options for this than I thought there would be. I will likely just end up with replacements though.

Metal sticks are grooved so its not bad grip. I just push really hard and plastic has more give than metal Plus the xbone sticks are very narrow compared to the larger PS4 sticks and sat higher which I didn't like either.

I activated HBO Go, first time user, on my PS4 this passed weekend for Game Of Thrones. Ironically, I usually rail against using the PS4 for media functionality, but without thinking and because the PS4 was already on (I was playing Bloodborne) I just fired it up and off I went. I noticed that during the GoT episode I don't believe I was getting surround. I certainly get surround out of my PS4, but my AVR flags it as PCM, so there's no way of knowing how many channels I truly have from there.

I also have an AppleTV and an XBO, Im curious if anyone has experience with HBO Go and knows where it is better between these platforms. I would prefer the 5.1 mix, but with the PS4 stream I also noticed some "web streaming" stuttering effects. I don't stream much, but when I do it is netflix, but they've ironed out much of that feel. (They also can indicate the audio stream).

I know I could just try the other devices I have, but honestly, it's a pain the butt to add/activate the device and once I start watching the episode, my wife isn't going to permit to stop and try another device mid stream. Would rather just skip that nonsense and jump straight to what my best option is.

I don't have a cable box, as I'm using a family members' account.

I have also been looking for an answer to this. And I don't believe HBO Go streams 5.1 on the PS3/PS4. There are no sound options to confirm, but I did some testing switching from a recording I did of GoT on Directv and a stream of the same episode using HBO Go

The sound was much more dynamic from the Directv recording, and showed just how jumbled/muted the sound from what I believe is just a standard stereo audio mix you get from HBO Go is

As for picture quality it did seem slightly better through HBO Go but that wasn't much of a surprise vs the compressed satellite signal

What is the meaning of life?

I modded mine with some metal ones so they will never wear out.
