In the end, I decided to get over the fact that I'll be playing the PS4 version of FFVII on the PS5 and just enjoy it. (I had considered not downloading it and waiting for the PS5 version)

If it was an old game I'd feel differently, but this was only released eleven months ago.

Not sure what I think of Maquette. It's a nice idea, but a bit clumsy and not always very clear where to head next (although it uses the PS5 card system to give advice if you come out of the game...)

Been trying Maquette as well. It's interesting, the story going on as you play is sickly sweet made worse when I have to keep rewatching the cutscenes every time I end up having to restart whole sections because I trap myself.

I've done the same. It's a gorgeous looking game, even without the upgrade. I have to admit, I'm finding the combat pretty difficult to begin with. I died first time on the Scorpion robot. Managed to get it on the 2nd attempt, but must have used 15 potions.

Currently in the city streets and there are a few tough enemies I've just scraped by. Ended up watching some tips videos which I think have helped.

Hot tip for Maquette, make a manual save.

Accidentally hit new game from the main menu and it immediately autosaved over my progress so rip.

Anybody played Ace Combat 7? I'm craving some Pilot Wings / Flight Simulator relaxing flying and was wondering if you can take the aircraft for a spin at sunset without a bogey trying to shoot you down?

Yes, according to this post on Steam:
Yup, after the first mission. Quit to the menu and you get an option to replay stuff. Free flight is under that.

I'm guessing Avengers won't be the recently released PS5 upgrade version, but would be great if so!

Shame Oddworld isn't the PS4 version, but decent month overall.

Looks like GamePass isn’t going unnoticed by Sony...

According to God of War creator and Twisted Metal co-creator David Jaffe, he claims to have spoken to a number of sources within PlayStation about the company’s plans to respond to the popularity of Microsoft’s subscription service.

”We had the guy on the show yesterday that had made the petition to fire Jim Ryan and I was like, ‘dude, that’s way premature’ because Jim Ryan doesn’t owe anybody, Sony doesn’t owe anybody, the truth about what’s coming and what their counterpunch to Game Pass is."

“What I can tell you is I know they are doing some stuff because I know people at Sony who have told me that they are doing some stuff. There will be a response to Game Pass."

“What it is we don’t know,” Jaffe added. “Here’s what I would say I worry about. If Jim Ryan thinks the proper response to Game Pass is to emulate backwards compatibility, PS3 games, PS2, PS1, and then to also add Trophies, which is what that patent suggests they’re going to do, and they’re also going to fold in all the movies and gooseberry fool and make a streaming service, he’s absolutely wrong if he thinks that mixing it with PS Now [is the way to go].

That would make me go, ‘I don’t think the man has a clue’, because that’s not going to compete with Game Pass, but I don’t know if that’s the case, but I don’t think Jim Ryan is ready to throw under the bus at all.”

Overhaul of PlayStation Now or will that get retired and replaced with a new rebrand.

I bet it turns out to be 5% off PS Now. Also Jaffe talks so much crap it's difficult to take him seriously.

PlayStation Now rolled into Plus at no extra cost! Maybe.

Such valuable insight.

Be interesting to see what they do end up doing but I can't imagine it's going to come close to being as good value as GamePass, they simply don't have the money Microsoft have to throw around and take the hit with. I could see them rebranding PS Now though since it's never really taken off or at least combining it all like you said into PlayStation Now+
