Why would it be about politics? Their election is coming up next week I suppose.


#3494

Oh no, even back in February I was accused of being a ’ Brexit Refugee’ when asked why I wanted to relocate to Amsterdam…


#3495

Who can blame you, really? I’ve been considering it myself.


#3496

It totally blindsided me in an interview, I couldn’t believe the guy said it.
I mean there’s simply no basis, if I didn’t have a reason to move to Amsterdam, I wouldn’t just throw a dart at a map of Europe and say “Hey, I’ll completely uproot my life in London and move to Amsterdam for no reason other than a referendum vote result…”

Anyway I’m not ragging on Amsterdam, I just got a 2nd stage interview for a job that I’m interested in! :smiley:


#3497

Congrats! Let us know how it goes…

I’m still waiting for the option to change PSN ID names. I’m stuck with the lame one I made years ago.


#3500

I don’t think that will ever happen, Japanese and Chinese Playstation owners can change their psn id names though.


#3501

This is a tremendously huge mistake on their part. This should be removed at once.


#3502

I don’t see it that way, when i bought my new PS4 i had hard time to activate it to be my primary system, i had to try to find out which previous system and user id was my primary, it took a while before i figured it out and was able to set my latest PS4 as primary system.
So if or when i buy PS4 Pro i don’t have to worry about this because it will happend automatically :smiley:.


#3503

As far as I remember, when the PS4 was introduced, the privacy politics stated that each SEN account could be linked to a maximum of 2 systems of the same specs, maximum. So if I wanted to play on a friend’s house with an account that,has never been connected to a PS4, that PS4 would be embedded as a primary. And if the second you use is your main, should it break or anything then you would not be able to reuse that account on a warranty ps4.

All this does is restrict pirate business of selling accounts. And for the country I live in, I massively approve of account selling. So this is just bullshit at it’s best when seen from my perspective.


#3504

This was new to me, i didn’t know people sell or buy psn accounts :flushed:, but in the end it boils down to pros and cons and for me it is pros an advantage when i change my current PS4 and i don’t have to worry about if i disable the primary account on this on or not before i fire up the next PS4.


#3505

Thanks for the details, seriously appreciated! :slight_smile:


#3506

You should have just casually explained that you were a cannabis and mushroom refugee instead.

EDIT: a sexy murder hostel refugee as well.


#3507

Congratulations to Square Enix on 30 years of FF I guess.


#3509

In my day it was Squaresoft


#3510

Yeah, sad to think of all those old companies that have been swallowed up.

Eidos, Bullfrog, Maxis #memories

On topic: I’m through to the third round of this job in Amsterdam. Absolutely made up! :smiley:
Flight home tonight is delayed but, ehhh, it’s cool

@SnakeGun and I decided to go out on behalf of the Freeze Army and make sure everyone was subscribed


These people weren’t subscribed, so they had to go…


…and she forgot to smash that like button.

All in all, a good day’s work :slight_smile: seriously tho, I despise Freeze with all my heart


#3512

So apparently it’s my cakeday today. I had no idea when I signed up so that was a nice surprise when I just saw the picture next to my name. It’s only just turned midnight as well.
