Console gaming is a very cheap hobby and for the amount of time you spend with games in general it seems mad not to spend a couple of hundred quid for nicer stuff.

It's cheap compared to helicopter flying or something but I think "very cheap" is stretching it.


For 'hours of entertainment per £' I'm not convinced anything can touch it.


Books?


Ass Creed Origins is on course to entertain me for 60 hours. It cost £17.


That’s more expensive than a book, and you don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds to read one either.

I’m being facetious rather than massively serious, of course. Books are insanely good value for money though.


You've spent more than 60 hours reading many books? Or, indeed, any?


Absolutely! Plus, to be a fair comparison, you’d need to buy £17 worth of books. Plus, to be even fairer you would need to also factor in the additional proportionate costs of the hardware. And that’s not even accounting for libraries, electricity, etc.

I am considerably more likely to re-read a book than I am to play a game. There's a number of books I've read half a dozen times.

I think it's a bit meaningless to even try compare things on a £/hr basis. Good art, entertainment, hobbies whatever are things that leave a lasting impression and affect you in some ways afterwards. I spent £200 to go paragliding down a mountain and it lasted for 15 minutes, that doesn't mean it was horrible value because it was an amazing experience that made a lasting impression. On the other hand I sometimes watch a film and it so utterly fails to make any impression that a couple of months later I couldn't actually say with any certainty whether I even saw it.

Also :this: but being sensible about things never did me any good (subs please check).

Sony have weirdly chosen now to release a version of the Remote Play app for iOS:

https://www.engadget.com/2019/03/07/son ... -play-ios/

I really wish they'd just suck it up and release it for Android across the board as well.

I noticed this earlier, but can’t find it in the App Store.

-edit- I found it by finding another official PS app and then looking at other apps made by PlayStation Mobile.

This is usually stale caches in the search system. Play does the same thing. Either find a direct link to the app on Twitter/a news post/etc, or just wait a bit and it'll resolve itself.

I just tried a bit of Modern Warfare. It was laughable with touchscreen controls but it was responsive and looked/sounded good.

I’ve ordered a SteelSeries Nimbus to see what that’s like with it. If so I could live the dream of playing the PS4 upstairs on a 13” screen!

I've just tried it on the office iPad but it's so hilariously old that the app doesn't support the version of iOS it's running.

And then it trundled off on its wheels to talk to someone else?

Nah, it spends it's time plugged in and charging (except for during our morning scrum) because the battery life is so awful now so that keeps it from roaming around the place. Amusingly it's also now left with it's face turned to the wall because apparently someone recently connected to it and was creepily watching the folks it sits behind.
