CDkeys at £38.99 seems to be a decent option, kaz.

Yeah, you can upload your game saves into the cloud and then download them again. Cloud saves are a feature of PS Plus but Sony apparently lets you re-download the saves for up to six months after your PS Plus sub expires.

I have two PS4 systems and I kinda like that setup; they're connected to the same screen and there are different games on each console. I use the same account / login for both.

Thanks Jawa, guess i'm going to have to resub if i want to keep that flexibility. Hopefully there will be some good PS+ games this month to sweeten the deal. Although compared to Gamepass it really doesn't offer much in terms of value if you just want the games.

If you want to transfer saves via the cloud then yeah you need PS+

Tempted just to buy for sake of having a 4K player :lol: Would be more tempted if I had a 4K TV.

It's not a bad idea as it's a decent player and even for someone who doesn't game it has quite a few apps and stuff they may like.

It's what I'd recommend if someone needed a 4k player.

TheGameCollection have got an offer on software that includes preorders. 5% off software orders below £75. 7.5% off on software orders above £75.

The prices are decent already, so if there are a couple of games you want later this year you could get an extra 7.5% off by ordering them together.

Finishes tomorrow.

Wouldn't it just be better to buy Xbox GamePass for a £1?

Maybe you feel that buying is supporting the Dev more? If that makes sense. Like I haven't bought it, but had tons of hours out of it from Gamepass, so I may buy it to be nice :lol:

Grabbed Mario Maker 2 and Astral Chain as they are both £38.95 before the deal!

Sea of Thieves is one of those games that can be very hard to figure out if it's for you or not without putting in a good few hours of playtime. £20 is a good price if you'll enjoy it, but I'd certainly say Gamepass is a great "try before you buy" for Sea of Thieves.

Just to be clear, the only things the Anniversary Edition adds are six cosmetic items and 10,000 gold. All of the other content is already included in the regular/Game Pass version.

If I have multiple pre-orders in one order, will they be dispatched individually when released?

When I've done this before they've shipped as the games released.
