I'd still suggest to people they fit a drive internally, given how easy and neat it is. But there's more things you could do here e.g. buy an affordable smaller SSD for internal use (holding the OS and one or two preferred games) and then a larger, cheaper HDD for the rest of your library.

Oooh, that's nice.

Oooh, of course: an external HDD could be a 3.5" desktop sized ones, which are a lot cheaper at larger volumes.

PS4 Pro boost mode is interesting.

Playing games with no PS4 Pro mode in that hardware profile.

Seems like it would mostly be a boost in framerate to games with variable framerate, less dips in games with locked framerate, and more consistent resolution for games with dynamic resolution. But games which are locked at 30fps will remain so.

Kind of like what you can do with a hacked New 3DS, forcing games to run in New 3DS mode, for pretty significant performance improvements for some games, but also bugs and glitches in other games.

Hell yeah, that's interesting! It's still possible Sony might sell me a PS4Pro.

I think they'll sell to anyone, Doc. Don't put yourself down bud.

How'd you get in that? I'd love to smash in my ex.drive so I don't have to keep juggling a bunch of shit around on my 500gig. Bloody Doom takes up almost 80 gig and I've had to delete CoD: IW and Uncharted 4 to play some games from Christmas. Having an external drive would be ace for us who don't fancy opening up the machine.

Colour me badd interested. Let's say I go the route of fitting a 1TB internal drive like this.

And in addition I get a big external hdd. Is the approach here to basically copy games from the external HDD to the internal HDD when you want to play them? Or can one play them straight off the external HDD, but you might get worse performance?

As long as you get a USB3 external caddy you should barely notice a difference. USB3 is comparable in speed to current SATA.

Resogun - I fired this up on the PS4 last night. It's still a mighty pretty thing when all guns are blazing.

But I couldn't help noticing there are only two Beex People* on its leaderboards (who I'm PS friends with, which is obviously not an exhaustive list).

I'd have thought this was a game that was bummed hard here. WHAT GIVES?

*Myp and Zoidberg. Zoidberg appears to be much, much better than Myp.

I played it, what with it being a ps+ game.

I didn't play it for long.

What he said. I spent waaay too much time just trying to make my multiplier last as long as possible. Not even tried the new modes that got added a while back.

I have resogun too, aren't we ps4 friends? (i'm romanista345), but maybe we play different modes? (and i usually play it on the vita, where somehow it feels more fun

on other news.. i just connected usb3 have (70 pounds for 2tb WD Passport), for some reason it didn't work when put in the right usb port (i guess that's a usb 2?) but it did work in the left one.. works like a charm, but why doesn't it have a usb port on the back it makes me think...this looks ugly, but 2,5 TB in total is quite nice, so now redownlading stuff i deleted, and bought fire watch in the sale...

Friend request sent!

I'm playing Resogun on PS4 and Vita. Must say I prefer it on the big-screen, the spectacle of a well-timed overdrive on a screen full of enemies is mind-blowing. But it's super on Vita too. Just trying to make it cross-save properly as it doesn't feel like my unlocks are carrying over.

I played a lot of resogun at launch , however at some point later on they totally reset all the leaderboards and i;ve not went back to re-play (I think on one of the resogun threads you have me and Ian posting screenshots of our scores for a while)

Help me Beexy-Wan K'nobbers, you're my only hope.

I paired both my PS4 controllers with another console while I was away this weekend. Now neither of them will pair again with mine. I've used a cable to connect but it won't see them, I've tried holding the PS and Share buttons and I've even tried resetting them using a pin to the hole behind the L1 trigger. Now it's stuck on the Welcome Back screen and I can't even boot into safe mode because it still won't recognise the controllers even in there. Also tried a keyboard but it doesn't recognise it either.

Basically I'm stuck.

I knew posting it up here I'd resolve it straight after. Changed the cable and it worked first time. Weird that the other micro USB cable would charge it but not sync it.
