    @FussyDuck

    The paste that was on there was, surprisingly, in really good condition and a pretty much ideal amount, so we left it alone. Guess I just got lucky in that regard.

    I got that PS4 Pro in February 2017, and it's been used pretty much every day. Quite often fall asleep watching Netflix on it (it's set to turn itself off eventually), so it's had a lot of time to suck up dust and dirt (Edit: I mean cat hair. Ahem).

    It's out of warranty anyway, and I have no intention of trading it in (though I live in the Czech Republic, I could definitely find somewhere that'd take it regardless). I was gonna play it til it conked out, then buy a replacement.

    It was in pretty dire straits: it actually insta-shut-down due to overheating on the God of War title screen at the weekend. So, I was resigned to the fact that it was on its way out, this was just a "might as well try that before I spend money on a replacement" thing.

    Anyone else getting “cannot connect to server to verify the licence” and a message telling you to set it as your primary console?

    My younger brothers PS4 is set as my primary console so he can play the games I buy via his account in his console, while I can play them on my account on my console.

    I’ve had it set up this way for ages and never been a problem until tonight where I can’t run any games.

    Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I realized recently I have exactly the same problem: when I shut the PS4 off and switch to Freeview, channels come up as 'No signal' until the PS4 fully powers off. It's very weird.

    After a bit of advice if possible please. I'm looking to order a Pro but I believe I should get the 7200 model? Probably being an idiot but is it still only available with RDR which I don't need? And how easy is it to know I'm getting the right model?

    Thanks!

    Model no’s are displayed on the box so try to take a look at that before purchasing if buying from one of those rare buildings you can go into that actually have things onsite for you to take home after parting with your money on the spot.

    How odd. Up until recently I've had no issues like this but now if I'm watching freeview and I turn the ps4 on... i lose signal to the tv channels. I either get a generic no signal picture or heavily broken image.
    I thought it was just my tv but to read this. hmmm I wonder what it is.

    Samsung tv.
    base ps4.
    only other thing I have is a hdmi changer box but It cant be that?



    EDIT.

    Found this answer online.

    "This is a well known problem where the HDMI signal is at a similar frequency to your TV channels and if the HDMI cable has poor shielding then it allows this signal to leak and swamp the TV signal. Even cheap HDMI cables can have decent shielding so it isn't directly related to price."

    @ChiefGB thanks for the reply.

    Are you trying to say Amazon have physical buildings with goods inside them?

    So basically to be sure, probably have to buy in store?

    No it was just a side swipe for the gradual death of high st retail, no personal malice intended. But it would be your best bet to be sure what you are getting.

    I think most standard Black PS4 Pros should now be the quiet ones, pity the likes of Amazon don't list the model number. Could contact them.

    Didn't know if there was a thread but fuck it I'll post here.

    Has anyone else played CTR (Crash team racing) that came out a short while ago? Had a bit of a blast on adventure mode today and got some nice Diddy kong racing vibes from it. I usually dislike all non MK kart games but this one really does hit the spot for me so far.

    Tis very good. I don't think I ever played the other ones. The powerslide mechanic took me a while to adjust. Got the game free with the ps4.

    Yeah, I've never played the original but I've heard good things. I love me some MK8 but I don't have people to play with, whereas the PS4 is easy to take online if I fancy.

    Astroneer is now announced for PS4, releasing in Nov. Ashen is also out on Dec 4th.
    Seems like Xbox is losing a lot of the more interesting non-1st party exclusives they had.

    I was planning to buy one of this but after getting the news that there will be PS5 in development, I decided to wait for the PS5 instead.

    The PS5 has been "in development" since before the PS4 launched.

    It's not like Mark Cerney was down the chippy last Friday and thought "oh right, a PS5", sellotaped his chip bag and an issue of Bella magazine together and voilà.

    As with every console, before one even ships, they're working on the next one.
