    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    So I got the new PS4 Pro RDR2 bundle and apparently it's a new quieter model, but at the expense of some cooling. seems pretty quiet to me... was the original PS4P particularly loud? https://www.engadget.com/2018/11/08/sony-sneaks-out-a-quieter-ps4-pro/

    To be fair, it's kind of realistic. If you were driving down a busy street and knocked over a pedestrian, then I'm pretty sure they'll take offense.

    Make sure you see the vaudeville show in Saint Denis. Well worth $2.
  5. Not a classic console, but I do have very fond memories of the Amiga, so I'm going to say that. Of course, you can easily create an Amiga Pi now instead.

    I hate the tractor/cow tipping bit. Booooo. Hisssss.
  7. iOS? I have a Mac so only other way of playing this is via GeforceNow but it's not on steam so not likely.

    I've basically just been playing Dr. Mario for a week... the online sub has paid for itself!

    Mamma Mia - Here We Go Again!

    I really, really, really loved this. I had a tear in my eye at the end. A double bill with Paddington (for the n-th time) with my three year old. I feel he's having a great movie education lately, even at such a young age. For example, he watched Ghostbusters for the first time a week ago - he's seen it 7 times since!
  11. Being the 'backend' service for 2bn gamers would be incredibly lucrative. They want to be to gaming what AWS/Azure/GCP is to the web. I think that is do-able. And a much more stable revenue stream that the boom/bust risk that is associated with hardware cycles.

    Google Project Stream

    OK, just set it up, and a few initial reactions. Tested on MacOS Mojave with Chrome 69. Wired connection: 65 Down/10 Up. Latency ranges from 7ms-15ms although my latency to the nearest Google server is about 37ms according to http://www.gcping.com/. Location: New York/Manhattan. Very quick to launch and get into the game. I've used Geforce Now before and it takes ages in comparison to this. Mainly because I think GFN is a brute force spinning up of a server and Steam and launching the game. This is as quick as a console. Image quality seems excellent, but I'm no expert. I think it's probably running on high but not the absolutely max settings though I don't have anything to compare against. Looks like 30 FPS. While normally excellent every now and again it just freezes or drops to very low resolution and then crashes out with a warning that the connection has failed. Not sure why this happens but anecdotally, my wife started streaming Google Play Music and it crapped out. Not sure it was a coincidence, but regardless... an Xbox or PS4 generally does not suddenly stop working once an hour for no reason. The Display settings do not have any user configurable graphics settings. This is more like console than a configurable cloud PC as is the case for Shadow or Geforce Now. Does not support Switch Pro Controller yet (:( ) so stuck with keyboard & mouse controls which are terrible, but mainly out of personal preference - it seems responsive. I'm also using a Mac, and as anyone who attempts to play games on mac knows, the Apple Magic Mouse is terrible for gaming. I NEED an Xbox or PS4 controller if I'm going to play this. Turns off after 20 minutes of inactivity. Some Images. Apologies for file sizes.

    So I've gotten an invite for this. Sadly just have a wired Switch controller... hope it works! With report my experience once I've spent a bit of time with it.
