We've owned two PS4s for all of five minutes and we've had our first incomprehensible-to-normal-people DRM screwup.

This is because when setting up the Pro I made it my primary console, and the special guns pre-order bonus DLC is registered to me, so she could no longer access it under her gamertag on the older PS4. Sigh.

Would games purchased from PSN have the same issue?

Yes. They work for the user who buys them on any PS4, and they work for anyone else on that user's primary PS4, but they don't work anywhere else. This is one important way in which disks are better if you have multiple PS4s.

The obvious counter example is: MrsDoc and I could co-op Far Cry 5 with a single digital purchase.

But only if you'd left your old PS4 as primary, right?

Yes, it would only work for one arrangement, but it would work. Note also you can change your primary freely (which is how we sorted out her issue today, I moved my primary back to my old PS4.)

In fact it suggests that there's no reason for the PS4 you normally use to be your primary one.

No. Most likely config in new house is my primary PS4 is in the living room and my PS4 in the mancave [1] is the secondary. But that's still limiting -- MrsDoc can't play much in there, should she want to.

[1] watch me somehow end up buying somewhere without a mancave now.

Accessed through a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle, is it?

This is not true. My downloaded games work fine for The Grimlet on both of my PS4s.

Having to manually sync the saves to the cloud is annoying, though.

And you would be the user who purchased them. As I said. They won't work for other PSN accounts. Doesn't Grimlet just use your account?

I do enjoy the enthusiasm you imbue in this stuff. At times I also thought I was watching Stuart Maconie play God of War.

With a side order of "the one with the better exclusives."

Microsoft has done a lot of good stuff with the Xbox for a couple of years, but it's a long way from pulling either of those factors into its favour.

I think the 'pick the one your friends are on' is pretty much a given so I didn't go into that, and focused on which is the better bet for games. (Exclusives obviously being a major factor in that.)

Also back-compat got a mention but I didn't see it as a critical factor.

Cheers Mr Fop, I like Stuart Maconie very much so I'll take that as a compliment :)

It's quite easy for me to be enthusiastic about videogames as they are one of my absolute favourite things to spend time on.

I wish I was retired then I could just play videogames all the time.

After their shitshow of a start with all the consumer-hostile bullshit the Xbox is now a very good platform with it's backwards compatibility and all that jazz. It's the games that matter though as you say and there's still not a single thing on the Xbox that would make me even consider buying one. Whereas last time around I was convinced relatively early on that it was worth owning both consoles to get access to their exclusives. I'm genuinely baffled by how this situation has arisen, what in the fuck are Microsoft doing?

Uh oh. When watching the Netflix or playing a game the screen will flicker off and on every so often. Has anyone else had this? Cables are in fine and I cannot think of anything else. Googling doesn't seem to help. How long until PS5?

Have you tried swapping to a different HDMI input on the TV? I had some weirdness on mine where for some reason one of the inputs started messing up and every time I switched the PS4 on I would have to reboot the telly before it would see it properly.

Yes. I swapped HDMI cables and all was fine. Whether it was due to the new cable being shorter or something else, I don't know.

Black flickers like that are usually the HDMI doing the copy protection handshake again, which usually comes down to a dodgy connection. Re-seat the cable at both ends. If that doesn’t help, try another cable. It’s more likely to be the cable than the PS4 or TV.

pro tip:
start with the component furthest from the floor, replace it and then replace the next highest etc. when you reach the floor, the problem will be fixed.

It was indeed the power switch.

In my (limited) defence, the TV had a (never used) power switch and a power button, and I had never seen the power switch before in my life.

Still, fun story.

This happened to my dad too. I gave him my old 26" LG and it had a physical power switch on the back, which was unusual as the flat screen TVs he'd had before didn't have them. He told me it didn't work and after some faffing around I remembered it!

GAME are opening up a new shop in Shrewsbury on Friday, and they're doing 500GB PS4s for £150 as an opening deal.

That seems crazy cheap to me.

I’ve started playing Celeste. It’s jolly difficult platforming fun. The pixel art is a bit too chunky to be likeable but the music and sound effects are lovely so it evens out.
