For the price
Interesting to see that Sony has started making PlayStation 4s again, just so they have something to sell while the PlayStation 5 is out of stock. I’m lucky enough to have a PlayStation 5 but I couldn’t help thinking about whether buying a PlayStation 4 this year would make sense for someone that had never had one.
I think many people would agree that the PlayStation 4 is one of the best consoles ever made, with a great line-up of exclusives. So I think you could make a good case that it would be worth it for someone that wanted to experience them all. The only problem with this is that The PlayStation Plus Collection contains improved versions of many of them, so that’s the ideal way to play them nowadays.
If only PlayStation had their version of Game Pass it’d be a different story, but while you could certainly get all the games for cheap nowadays they wouldn’t be that cheap if you started getting a lot, so I don’t know. I think in all honesty I’d just recommend waiting and getting a PlayStation 5 when you can. Maybe I did get lucky but all I did was wait for a report of it coming to a shop (GAME in my case) and I picked it up easy.
After 20 years of marriage, I am sadly getting divorced. Nothing can prepare you for how this makes you feel. There are many things I expected but what I didn’t expect was how such a decision ripples through the family – especially children and how they would deal with this.
My brother’s 12-year-old felt particular upset and decided to get us all together on Fortnite. So, at around 7.30pm each night, I along with our children and my brothers son, get together in a world where we can have a laugh, talk, bond, fish, dance to Never Gonna Give You Up and be amazed at how brilliant (lucky) I am at Fortnite.
Seriously, people can say what they want about the detrimental impact of games on society but I will never forget my divorce, but at the same time I will never forget the love and support I have felt from the most unexpected of places.
GC: Best wishes for the future.
Interesting point that PC owners will miss out on some of the subtleties of God Of War because they haven’t played the originals, which are still PlayStation only. I have to say I’m one of those that doesn’t really understand why Sony are doing these PC ports.
They don’t add anything, they’re years late, and they make the console seem less special by exclusives not really being exclusives anymore. Also, …read more
