The PS5 has an actual playtime tracker, you can see in the profile menu.The only logical reason I can see them implementing the timer from the point of download is that they can't track when you start the game itself which is just pathetic in 2021. Even Nintendo did better with the 30 plays demo system.
So Trial a game thats 100GBs it takes me more than 5 hours to download 100GBs, as soon as I boot it my time is up?
I guess its true to form they are showing you how much of the game you would be able to play in 5 hours with my slow ass internet.
Im sure they will patch it to start counting at launch of the game the same way EA trials work.
If it was playtime I’m sure no one (sane) would have complained. As it stands the backlash is understandable. It’s dangling a carrot then taking it away, forcing workarounds to make it usable.
Just a shitty implementation I know people on some internets that takes hours for single patches to download and in the case of my nephews a large patch can take all day
Hmm, yes, to be fair my wording was poor (or ironically, low effort) - I meant with the way they have implemented it, this won’t be a simple change. They went with the most low effort option I suspect, and its unsuitability for the project is why it’s the (ridiculous) way that it is.Of course they can change it. They just didnt make an effort
I’m having the same issue, I have a ps5 so it should be working.So how can I try it? I looked up the games in the store but it didn't give me an option for a trial. Actually it seemed like it was making me buy the PS4 version of the game but then i realized it was like a PS4 & PS5 version combined for sackboy.
I tried with Dead Stranding too but it didn't let me.
Yeah me too. I don't know what'sthe issue, I'm accessing through the PS5 so it should allow me to do it. Has anyone from the US confirmed they are a le to do this? I only saw some guys from Europe confirming it.I’m having the same issue, I have a ps5 so it should be working.
Can only be a soft cock.So I started to download sackboy over 5 hours ago and your telling me when I boot it up tomorrow its going to say I've run out of time? Fuck off. What cock thought that was a good idea. Not everyone can download and play instantly.
Maybe they tested with ultrafast internet in their offices. It's ridiculous, people should complain.The idea sounds neat in the paper...but great scott, who heck though the timer starting on downloading was a good idea? Did they even test with an avarage player or casual before launching?
Only shows they don't really give much of a crap about this.
