    Offer ends on the 31st at 11:59pm and it is indeed for none subs. Do the PS3 games run smoother than real hardware or is there authentic PS3 slowdown? I’d only get it for some of the big PS3 games I never had the opportunity to play.

    They feel the same performance-wise to me but you also have the added input lag from the cloud streaming. They are not downloadable to play offline. Playing Killzone 2 & 3 this way almost killed me (i.e. extremely frustrating) but I managed. :D

    I seem to remember killzone felt leggy when it was on a console in the same room:cry:.

    Same here.

    Now that I have ordered it, almost on impulse...What's actually out there worth playing on it? :cry:

    Must admit I've only had a quick read - but that was my understanding too.
    So it's almost like putting your PS5 into "Suspend" mode, but without the risk of an OS update coming, installing, rebooting and you losing that run :)

    At least if your kids want to play Fortnite or something then you don’t lose your progress mid-run. That seems to be what most were complaining about.

    I’m really really impressed with the 3D audio in ratchet and clank. Probably the best I’ve come across.

    It Forbidden West utilises as many next gen features then I’ll be in heaven.

    The Pulse 3Ds with my PS5. Pleasantly surprised with them and they really shine with the next gen titles.

    Cheers... I've been really tempted to get them. Might wait for the next big PS5 exclusive.

    The only thing I feel they lack is a bit of bass, but the sound clarity, positioning and comfort levels are bang on. Very good for the price point. Seemless connectivity too and excellent battery life.

    Death's Door was great. Glad it's getting more exposure.

    Yeah, that's the only thing that has got me interested so far.

    This is incredibly lacklustre.
