I suspect the confusion here is down to the fact that BZ is also coming out on Switch, and that will release with the original alongside it, on Switch only, because there is no way to play the first game on Switch before playing the sequel.

The ESRB ratings confirm a new release is coming for Switch and Switch alone: https://www.esrb.org/search/?searchKeyw ... chType=All

I’ve not used PlayStation Now but to me it’s a little bit of a sleeping giant. If they did a PlayStation Plus Ultimate, for example, and really doubled down into putting games onto the service then it could be a bit of a monster. I’d pay a few extra quid to have the Motorstorms and stuff to hand, no bother.

That's a good shout actually. I've never looked at Now because there's no way I'm paying two separate subscriptions to Sony but a "+ Ultimate" at a discounted price would be enough to get me to give it a try.

Was the rumble ever patched back in to the original Motorstorm?

Question about the "Play at Home" games - do these actually get added to your Library or are they just yours for the duration you have them downloaded?

I ask because the process seems somewhat different to adding Plus games where it is obvious you are actually getting the game permanently - the button says "Add to Library" whereas here they all just say "Download" and after adding the free games they appear on my list of "Installed games" but not actually in my list of "Purchased games" unlike Plus titles.

I thought the same thing so set them all to download to my PS5. After downloading one game, the rest stuck due a DNS error (guess this was my internet connection), so I cancelled all the downloads. All the games are now showing in my ‘purchased’ history, so I assume these are mine forever.

Similar story for last year’s freebies (Journey & Uncharted collection) which I’ve not downloaded to my PS5 but show as games I own.

I thought it was tomorrow? Will hold off just in case it does end up being a PS+ game for next month, but assuming it doesn't, and assuming it performs ok on PS4 Pro i will be picking it up.

What happened to the Disco Elysium thread, I swear we had one?

Also why is it nowhere to be found on the PlayStation store. I’m surprised how low key this release is, doesn’t even unlock until 5pm tomorrow :?

I've been playing a bit of ratchet & clank. It's a really great game to get for free, but also quite annoying to play despite looking great.

For me, it goes from easy to tough way too much. And from great ideas to basic platforming slog too often as well. Think the humour is excellent too.

Really can't complain but think I'm going to get a lot more from the other giveaway games.

I know. Took me an effort to even find out what it's going to cost.

Feel like they're really underhyping what could be a decent hit

By far my most anticipated game in the past 2 years or so. I just wish it was coming to Series X day 1, as i really dont like the idea of playing a pared back version on my PS4 Pro. We still dont know the difference between the PS4 and PS5 verisons, but im guessing 1440p 30fps on the Pro. 30fps isn't likely to be a bid deal in a game of this type, but the fan noise etc on my Pro puts me off a bit.

£26 for Disco Elysium :o I'm so happy with that price, I was expecting £40 minimum on console. Almost downloaded and ready for my third play through.
