    It's not dead but not as active as it was on PS3 or when Omega came out. During daytime EU hours there's generally a few lobbies going. One can only hope for another Wipeout.

    I agree, a gaming PC is the best thing, but how much will it cost to build a good gaming rig? And is it possible to build that witouth skill or knowledge?

    It cost me about $500 to build a good mid-high performance rig. Granted I already had peripherals and a monitor. It'll play BallisticNG on highest settings no problem. Mid to High settings for most modern games. The only time it's ever noticeably struggled is with Tarkov but that's one of the most poorly optimized games I think I've seen. It runs PSP and PSX emulators without an issue when I want to play the older games. It was my first build and it's really not that difficult as long as you're careful and patient. The hardest part for me was diagnosing crashes and trying to get your software and drivers sorted.

    I honestly don't see what the big deal is with 5 bucks a month.
    Of course I know you don't keep them. I'm just saying that it isn't really free if you lose them anyway. They're a part of the subscription.

    Comparing it to NetFlix is a bit too much. Netflix has a ton of content from the day you subscribe, so does the xbox Game pass, hundreds of titles available to watch/play for the same price as PS Plus monthly.

    PS plus is only 2 titles monthly, you don't get to play any of the previous titles if you never added them to your library.

    Sure, if you play PS4 every now and then, it might be alright, but for someone like me who never play console and turns it on every 6 months just to play a little wipeout multiplayer then it's not worth it.

    It all depends on what you wanna do. Do you want to play at 1080p 60 fps? 144 fps? 4k 60 fps?

    Honestly, you can get a 1080p 60 fps machine just fine for 500-700 euros as long you build it yourself as It will be a lot cheaper for you. And no you don't need any skill or knowledge, but I would highly recommend watching a tutorial on building a pc. You don't want to bent your CPU pins by accident

    Yes, a gaming PC is like the best thing ever. I've used mine for a while now, zero regrets. It's awesome for pretty everything

    @Racingfan Iím with you on this; I barely find myself in the mood for gaming these days, but still enjoy it every now and then. So Iíve talked myself in buying a yearly subscription when itís on sale for ~40Ä, but I rarely need it. Thing is: console gaming is just so convenient, you press a button and there you go. Then again, basically I only bought the console at a discount and then a handful of games since I got it three years ago. Iím probably not Sonyís target audience.

    If it helps or if anyone cares CDKeys has half off PSN right now. I bought two years. Might be worth checking what it would be for your country/region.

    Though I play halfway regularly, I donīt have PS Plus. I might get it if I like Pacer. But getting games for free (for the time being) is rarely attractive to me. Cause I know what I (donīt) want and became extremely picky over the years. And since games are very cheap (if you can wait some months), I rather spend some money on games I really want. One doesnīt have the same amount of time with working full-time like..back then


    And about the gaming PC: BallisticNG made me playing on PC. I had a bare-bones crappy graphic card and bought a decent one just for this game. Of course, now I have other games as well in my library - though my focus will remain on the Playstation, I guess.
