  1. Activision are apparently completely and irredeemably technically illiterate, so the only way to “upgrade” a physical copy on Xbox is by buying the Series X version outright. That means it’s a wait until it’s a couple of quid in a sale purchase for me.
  2. No. An AirPlay compatible TV wouldn’t make a difference either because they’re only receivers.
  3. 60fps for Skyward Sword is a nice surprise, and hopefully bodes well for future re-releases of Wii (and earlier) era games.
  4. Yeah, they’re fantastic. Even the loading times for BC games on the Series consoles blow PS5 out of the water. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to see Sony rediscover backwards compatibility after embracing it on PS2 and (initially) PS3, but Microsoft keep giving very good reason to go with them for digital purchases in particular.
  5. Don’t get me wrong, 60fps is undoubtedly huge. I’m interested to see how the Hitman III RT update turns out because it’s very clean and works well artistically with what it’s got. Barring something spectacular I’d be loathe to default to 30fps in that case.
  6. Yes. Only via the Ultimate Edition though, not the one available on Game Pass.
  7. I agree with this. Fortunately, I’m not really troubled by switching between 30 and 60fps so it’s not a dilemma for me if it adds significantly to a game’s visuals. With that said, it’s been great to have so many more games at 60fps. The only exceptions for me so far are Control and Spider-Man: Miles Morales / Remastered because RT gives them a wonderful depth that is conspicuously by its absence as soon as it disappears. Performance ray-tracing for the latter should be right up my alley, but something looks off about the way that particular game moves at 60fps, which I can’t quite
  8. Just noticed there is a new system update, and YES! https://press-start.com.au/news/playstation/2021/02/03/ps5-update-20-02-02-55-00 “The following issue was resolved: The PS4 version of the game was sometimes installed from the PS4 game disc even after upgrading the disc version of a PS4 game to the PS5 version”
  9. I haven’t had any problems. Been rock solid as far as I can tell.
  10. I do think companies could stand to be a bit more discerning with when they put games on sale or flexible with the cancellation period in cases such as this. I bought the game towards the end of its recent PSN sale to play upon the launch of the PS5 version, and had my refund claim accepted within hours of making it because the purchase was within 14 days and hadn’t been downloaded. I don’t think it’s at all unreasonable to deny refunds if a game has been downloaded, but it wouldn’t hurt Sony to be generous with the eligibility period for anyone who has purchased and not used it, e
  11. Balls! I bought Control when it was on sale recently in anticipation of the PS5 update. Don’t think I started the download though, so I’ll try for a refund...
  12. Thanks, I’ll disable it for now. It’s a bit baffling to me how a fair number of games get released with broken HDR and also how, for all the good work they do, the likes of Digital Foundry never care to mention it.
  13. Has anyone found the HDR on Dartmoor a bit fucked? Having played through the first two games within Hitman 3, I’ve been mostly happy with the visuals so far, but this one looks washed out. I’ve found a few posts about it elsewhere, but wondering if it’s been conspicuous for anyone here and if there’s a solution. I’m playing on PS5.
  14. Thanks. One last question: Is it worth getting the Game of the Year / Gold editions of the first two?
