Is that true? I've seen rumours of The Order 1886.

Yep: https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/09 ... _announced

I'd heard decent things about Vampyr but I don't think I'm interested in either to be honest

Vampyr is pretty decent a bit janky and glitchy but very solid 'AA' game.
Wasn't Payback filled to the brim with micro transactions at launch?

Yeah, at launch the loot box stuff was pretty intrusive but it was subsequently dialled back.

If you're after a new DualShock 4 controller, they're currently priced below £40 at Amazon. Not exactly cheap, but less costly than normal.

Edit: They're selling quickly :o . Only camo and rose gold left.

I would have been interested in that, my DualShock 4 has been terrible for stick drift, but I'm not getting a rose gold one! :lol:

Can I just shock you? I like rose gold, despite what I said earlier.

It does look pretty neat! I kinda hadn't realised that it has a slight pink effect... but, yeah, it looks decent.

Trophy alterations coming imminently:

You’ve all heard that satisfying sound when a Trophy pops up on the corner of your screen. There’s the sense of accomplishment when that ultra-rare Platinum trophy is unlocked after hours of pursuing. Trophies were first introduced on PlayStation 3, and have been an integral part of the PlayStation gaming experience. Today, we’re excited to announce we’re bringing some enhancements to the Trophy system.

New Trophy Levels
The first thing you’ll notice is the big change to your Trophy level. We’re increasing the Trophy level range from the current “1-100” to “1-999,” so following this update, your Trophy level will automatically be remapped to a new level within this new range based on the Trophies you’ve earned to date. For example, if your current Trophy level is 12, your new level will jump to somewhere in the low 200’s. The exact level will depend on the number and grades of trophies you’ve acquired. There will be no changes to the Trophies already earned or Trophy information, such as unlock requirements.

New Level Calculation Structure
We’ve implemented a new Trophies level calculation system that is more optimized and rewarding. Players will progress quicker through the early levels, and levels will increase more consistently. Platinum trophies will count more toward your level progression, making them even more valuable.

New Trophy Level Icons
With an expanded level range, we’re also updating the trophy level icon on PlayStation 5, as well as PlayStation App at a later date. Currently the Trophies icon is just a single gold star, but we’re adding a few variants:

Bronze: levels 1-299
Silver: levels 300 – 599
Gold: levels 600 – 998
Platinum: level 999

The icons will also have a subtle distinction to visually suggest how close you are to the next level.

Lastly, just for clarity, Trophies that you’ve earned on previous PlayStation systems will come with you to PlayStation 5, just as they have in previous generation transitions. The new Trophy levels will be reflected in all locations that Trophy levels are shown, including past systems, PS App and My PlayStation.

All of these updates will be automatically implemented on the system side, starting later tonight (North America) / tomorrow (Europe).

We’re committed to offering an even better experience for our fans as we head into the next generation of gaming. We can’t wait for everyone to start racking up trophies in all the amazing upcoming games that are launching on PS4 and PS5!

The issue with the current system is that you can be earning trophies and it doesn't register on your overall count, so this is a solution to that. One idea I saw mooted before the start of this generation was having a completely new set of trophies and achievements that start at 0 for each generation so everyone starts on a level playing field.

Is anybody's new trophy count live yet? Checking my profile via a web browser and they're not.
