The Sony Playstation Thread

A thread dedicated to Sony’s line of Playstations, from the Playstation 1 all the way to the current Playstation 5. Dedicated to exclusive games, news, merchandise, States of Play etc.

I don’t mean to be rude, but I do not see why we need so many empty topics created with just “here you can discuss X”.
If you have something to share or discuss, sure go ahead. But every member can cteate a thread if he/she deems the need for it, so we need no placeholders created right?


True. But we seem to have a bunch of Playstation people on here and a recent thread about the last State of Play. Seems like it makes sense to try and put it into a single thread.

But you have every right to ignore this thread and create your own. I’m not a mod or even a regular.


I mentioned this in the game news thread but Sony has expanded their Play at Home program.

10 indie games are being given away next week. Lasts until 22nd of April. They also confirmed that in April we’re getting Horizon Zero Dawn as the free game.

Info on the promo periods for the free titles:

Today’s the day!

10 indie games have been discounted to FREE on the Playstation Store. They’ll remain so until April 22nd.
Claim them, and you can keep them forever!


So, I was lucky enough to score a Series X on launch day, but no PS5.

PS4 was the only console that I didn’t get because I really didn’t like most of the games.

Now I want a PS5 and realize how they’re elusive as unicorns.

Or maybe I don’t :rofl:

Is VR really that good?

I mostly want PS for Ratchet and Clank, first world problems.

With this crazy demand, I won’t be able to get my hands on a PS5 until the summer, and because of that I still haven’t been able to start playing Hitman 3. I could just get the PS4 version, but I really don’t wanna buy it twice… man this sucks.

You don’t have to. The PS4 version comes with a free upgrade to the PS5 version. (And vice versa, for that matter.)


Thank you! That was dumb on my part to have assumed otherwise without researching.


Next gen upgrade kehd.


Talking to my Dad recently. I’ve been seeing him once every 1-2 weeks, and since lockdown, one thing we do when we meet up is play games on my old PS3, stuff like Split/Second, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, and Gran Turismo 5 split screen. My Dad will be coming into some money in a few weeks, and he’s basically said to me, as a sort of birthday gift to me, he’s going to fund 50% of the cost of a PS5.

So yeah, on the PS5 hunt now. Can’t start until I get the money from him for it, but already, it’s interesting seeing how many websites and Twitter accounts are set up about stock hunting in the UK. Had to kinda explain to my Dad that it may take some time to get a PS5 even after he gives me the money for it. Still, exciting stuff. I don’t own a PS4, so as such this will basically be an opportunity to get some PS4 exclusives I really want to get my hands on like Gran Turismo Sport, Wipeout: Omega Collection, Persona 5 Royale etc. Probably buy Dirt 5 on PS5 as well for the split screen.
