I just wanted to take a second to acknowledge the increasingly large group of new posters we are seeing in the PlayStation sub-forum here at AVS. Some of you own or previously had a PS3, and some of you are jumping on board the Sony bandwagon for the first time with the PS4.
Either way, if you have non-technical, PlayStation-related questions that you don't want to make a new thread for, feel free to ask and someone here will help you. If you are having technical or setup issues, we have a sticky thread
dedicated to assist you in getting things resolved.
I'm sure I speak for a lot of the other awesome members who frequent this area of the site when I say we are very happy to have you guys around.
Tips for New PlayStation Gamers
- Here's a full list of current PS4 games, as well as all of the announced upcoming titles with video preview links when available.
- Grab the PlayStation app for either the iPhone or Android devices to browse, interact, and communicate with your PSN account while offline. Highlights include access to the PSN store and remote download control for your console.
- Shoulder buttons (L1 or R1) sticking on your DS4 controller? Here's a fix.
- If you want to have a converter to play an XBox controller on your future PS4, Tyrant II suggests keeping an eye on this company's products in this post.
- Seriously consider joining PlayStation Plus right now if you have a PS3 (it is now required to play most PS4 online games). The PS+ store discounts are pretty awesome as is cloud saving and auto-updates, but the main appeal is that some terrific games are free for members to play as long as they subscribe. For many of us, this service has been one of the best deals in gaming. Check out the crazy list of stuff we've downloaded in the last twelve months alone!
AVS Member PlayStation Network IDs (and forum nicks)
Below are names of people at this site (organized by region) who are looking to add to their PlayStation friends list for online multiplayer vs. and/or co-op fun. If you want to be added, it would help to know a few things about you:
- What is your PSN ID? I'll add your AVS forum nick right after.
- Which region of the country you are in (west, east, north, south, or central)? This is so people have the option to synch timezones and/or choose to play competitive games against closer players for reduced lag (important in fighting games).
- What type of genres you are into? Name specific games if you wish; members can read it in your post.
- When sending an invite request to a member, you have a better shot at being accepted if you mention you are from AVS! (thanks PENDRAG0ON)
