    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    This is incredibly stupid, but it annoys me that they go to such efforts to contrive a way for an obvious pulp SF goof to be technically actually right, you know, because actually... Right up there with people calling the Alien the xenomorph instead of a xenomorph in the list of stupid stuff that I get irrationally annoyed about.

    Playstation Now...Available Now

    I think literally nobody cares about this, but you can now download rented PS4 or PS2 Classic games instead of just streaming them, which also allows offline play (for a few days): https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018/09/20/playstation-now-adds-downloading-of-ps4-ps2-games/ Seems to be morphing in to more of an Xbox competitor.

    Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    There's not going to be much mileage in the franchise if each instalment has to be 1/sqrt(2) the length of the previous one.

    PS4 Pro

    Everything I've read about the PS4, the PS4 Slim, and the PS4 Pro leads me to believe that no two consoles make the same amount of noise. I don't know whether it's a silicon variability thing like that business they have to fine tune on the OneX or they're just not putting the thermal paste on right or what, but not even benchmarking sites using audio meters can seem to agree on it.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    See, that's the kind of unmourned thirdparty crap that defined the PSX experience for me. If they can put that on there with Wild 9 and that one game where you were a robot with a ball for legs on a jelly skatepark I'll be very happy.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    A big part of why I got the SNES mini despite having easy access to emulation, the 3DS store, and the Wii is that it was curated to a list of absolute classics or landmarks. Not that Sony is going that direction here but choice can be a burden. ^^^^^^^^ Owns 10x more Greatest Hits and compilation albums than real music.

    I don’t think it would be worth the money to have people levering those open with screwdrivers one at a time, but they will get more of a return on their investment in the manufacturing tools.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Yeah, it’s probably Now related, it it’s not a great comparison there either.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    I can understand a bit of confusion but it’s obvious they meant games people already own. It’s poorly worded I suppose, if people were expecting a free library.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Seeming more likely that the North American and Europe models will be identical and 60Hz then. I hope. It’s so smol.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    I don't think anyone, to the first approximation, bought a Dual Analogue controller though. It wasn't until the Dual Shock was the standard pad that analogue controls really made any headway on PSX. Edit - Damn this is some old school Alex W. nitpicking.

    Deadpool 2 - 2018

    They must've wrestled over that paradox, wanting to do an authentic Blockbuster experience when auhentically nobody could be eagerly queing to go to Blockbuster.
  13. One of those is definitely a spoiler, thanks for flagging it. It hadn't occurred to me what that implied when I saw the news earlier...
