    Why faff about with a console if the TV has a perfectly good Netflix app ?
    The ps4 for me was the fastest to use and load etc. Plus as my Sammy tv doesn't do proper HDR. The tv netflix app forces the settings to change to fake HDR if you will which makes the image too dark. I've changed the settings but it resets them everytime.

    It's a 4k TV. It manages to playback 4k Netflix just fine but the whole UI grinds to a halt under the pressure.

    How “jet-engine-y” does this get after a few months of use then?

    It depends on the game, mine is near silent for 90% of them but the odd one gets it blowing a bit. It hasn't increased in noise though, would say it's that same now as it was on day one.

    Hmm. That would be one improvement I’d have to have if I upgraded. I can hear my original model over my sodding headphones at times.

    The Witcher has had a Pro patch now, so it's not a base game.

    Build quality of the Pro is fucking abysmal. I can hear mine creaking and cracking after i've turned it off and I can't use rest mode anymore as the system runs hot with fans audiable.

    Meanwhile my Xbox One S has developed an intermittent fan whirr that's like a whistle. Both are annoying as fuck. Bring on the X next week, fingers crossed it'll run quiet and cool

    Who has their PS4 Pro vertical?

    Mine was loud vertical at times, especially when during the first few minutes of gameplay and now whisper quiet that I've laid it down flat.

    @richardiox To be fair, the creaking and cracking is part of the design. The plastic contracts when it cools.

    My ancient TV is the same. Sounds like I'm making a post-gaming session feed of popcorn

    If I want to game share with a good mate. When I set his console to my primary do I need to stay signed in? I'm not bothered about sharing his games so does he have to set my console to his primary?

    And we both want to play online at the same time using the same game. Can we do that?

    Nope! But you will need to be signed in on your console to play anything digital, so if you can't connect to PSN for some reason you'll be locked out your stuff on your PS4.

    You can only have one Primary PS4, so you won't be able to buy stuff from the Web Store and have it auto-download to your PS4 though, it will go to his. And PS+ save uploading will only work on the Primary PS4 too.

    No need for him to set yours as his primary at all if you don't want to share his games.

    Yup, I do this all the time.

    @Weebleboy thanks for the info, seems pretty straight forward enough then.
    Do any patches automatically download and install? So cloud saves are only for the primary, fair enough I could switch mine back to primary if I ever lost a save I guess so no big deal either, I'm always connected online too.

    Think we are good to go!

    You can still manually upload your saves from the non-Primary one, you just need to remember to do that. Oh and trophies won't sync automatically. THE HORROR.

    Oh, and another bonus is your chum won't need PS+ if you have it.

    Looks like auto-patch downloading might be disabled though: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/get-help/help-library/playstation-plus/playstation-plus/sharing-playstation-plus-benefits-with-a-friend-on-playstation-4/

    He will need to sign into your account whenever he wants to download a game that you own, then switch back to his once its started. That means he'll be signing you out for a couple of minutes each time.

    So I want a PS4 and I'm thinking of getting a Pro. Is it worth it if my tv is only 1080p and I have no intention of going 4k anytime soon?

    And I'm worried about noise; if I get a pro but only use it in HD will games with a pro mode still make it run loudly or can you turn pro mode off for non 4k users?

    So has anybody else had games deleted from their system?
    Like it was there one minute on the dashboard and then you’ve accessed the friends list and then come back to the dashboard and they’re gone?
    Both GTsport and Destiny2.............just gone!

    @effinjamie Are you sure they're gone or is the icon just dropped off the home screen if you have the "display 15 items or less" option enabled?

    @FuzzyDucky
    I have stuff ordered into folders, but they are just gone! From the library too. I had to go to the games on the store and redownload them from there.

    I tried playing a bit more of the last guardian last night. (PC master race comment incoming) The frame rate is making me feel really, really sick. It was fine in the cave bit but as soon as I can outside it’s been nausea central. I might have to try the 1080p mode instead.

    This console is a disappointment really..

    Might trade it in for an xbox one X, pity about my collection of games though..

    I'm happy with my pro, ok it's not the quietest (and has got louder btw) but I've come to terms with that. That doesn't mean weak ass me doesn't have an x at work to pick up of course 😊. But I assume my pro will still be my primary console, until those hd textures maybe start to make me weep a little.

    Certainly the catalogue is so strong I don't know how Xbox players have survived without caving for so long.

    I love it. Have no interest in an Xbox x because I already have a PC. Purely bought this for its great exclusive catalogue
