Playstation / Moderns consoles update nightmare / small rant
I rarely use my playstation 4 - the past year, I wanted to use it a few times.

Every-time some large update is waiting, and most of the times I end up waiting for some update to complete before I can use for example online options, so when all is done, I either don't have time to play anymore, or I can't be bothered.

It's a fucking joke. I also noticed that every-time someone cracks a firmware, it doesn't take long before legal users are forced to update to a new firmware.

That shit should work as I want it to work whenever I start it, I shouldn't be forced to always have it on standby, or start it once a month to make sure everything is as sony or whomever wants it.

Fuck the modern world of console gaming!

Just breakout the Playstation 2 already!

When i get on my laptop and steam wants to update I just turn off the internet and play offline mode.
And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.

And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.

Windows does the same thing. Updates when IT wants to, regardless of what the user wants, and even regardless of the user's settings!

Steam tries to do the same thing. Almost all games are set to auto-update, by default.

For online games, I get it, this is the number one way to stop hackers and cheaters. But not for single player games.

Do you do online gaming? Would this still happen if you werent connected online, or would this still occur regardless? I dont do online gaming, so I was curious.

I saw a headline that a new playstation 4 update fixes the dead battery system lock, which seems ludicrous and needed fixed.

Some of the titles I enjoy are online only. But yes, single player experiences can be ignored, for a while, until they force you to update. Yes, you could pull the cable, but lose a lot of content and options, but online games wont start at all.

so the only option you have from now on.. turn on your ps4 once a week or month so it can update and be available in case you want to play it.

Re: Playstation / Moderns consoles update nightmare / small rant
I was a casual gamer until my nephew got a PS4 and then played every weekend with him. Back in June it said I had to update the console but after trying everything including a manual download, it refused to update because my disc drive was broken (I rarely use hard copy versions of games, I just download right off the internet). Since it wouldn't update, I couldn't play anything. Turned my console into an expensive paperweight. Fuck Sony.

Re: Playstation / Moderns consoles update nightmare / small rant
Haven't actually played a PS game in years, but been thinking about hauling out the old PS2 (the PS3 would probably be bogged down for years with updates and I wouldn't spring for anything newer). Thank God I only play single player. But Xenosaga has been calling my name again, and so has the Breath of Fire series. Sometimes it's quite nice to be satisfied with old-school stuff.
More deplorable all the time.

Don't buy a $1000 Xbox series x/Playstation 5, go the pc route if you can. Buy an EVGA RTX Nvidia card, get on like a 9th gen i7 and you won't regret it
