Just checked, and I DID NOT get the PS4 version of Bugsnax along with the PS5 version. My bad. I've been conditioned to think cross-buy titles were automatically on all platforms with Plus, because, well, they almost always were. I get why this would be PS5-only though.

If you check the PS App buggsnax have 2 entries, one that list as PS5 and PS4 and the other that we got on PS+ that is PS5-only.

The PS Plus version was announced as PS5 only.

But yes, cross platform titles are petty much both put on PS plus so it's understandable you would have thought so.

Beyond these 2 things, when I redeemed it on mobile, it was listed as PS4/PS5. I was going to take a screenshot for the express purpose of having some type of backup for this thread, but I got a brand new phone, and taking a screenshot isn't done the same way as it was on my old phone ( I still don't know how, ha ) so I couldn't do it. Anyway, it's all worked out. :)

With PS5 just having launched, people are of course spending more of their spare time gaming so it's understandable that this thread becomes less active. Still, it makes me a bit of a sad panda that I'm never able to catch a few updates when visiting. Have to go other places for that.

Ryuu is doing an awesome job with the Xbox thread constantly posting news, rumors, tweets, polls, open questions, etc. I'm not saying this should be updated as regularly but maybe just a weekly news recap or something like that. And this is not to criticise Bristow as he only took the job because no one else volunteered at the time and he was completely clear about not having the time to update the thread regularly.

If I'm longing for more activity, I should just post more myself or request being the future thread OP. Like Bristow, I currently don't have the time though which I guess is the case for everyone. It's a pity though because this thread could be a way to lure more regulars to the site that mostly care about causal PS talk with minimal of the fanboy war toxicity that is present in far too many individual threads. Dunno. I'm rambling. There's probably not much to do.



I would say that for the Xbox Megathread that is more of a need since for PS we get plenty of threads, well at least Xbox get a lot of reports on the interviews of their top brass.

It's true that PS gets more individual threads instead. Problem is that many of those are (or quickly will be) filled with fanboy war stuff which isn't what many users seek when visiting VGC. Especially tiring are those threads where fanboy fuel clearly is the OP's sole intention (no matter if it's a PS fan smearing the competition or an XB/Nintendo fan smearing PS).

In the weeks leading up to PS5 launch this thread was one of the most active on the site. But these megathreads quickly become wastelands if they don't have an active OP. I've seen many casual PS users leave this site but maybe some will return if we have an active megathread without all the fanboy war nonsense.



Yeah the difference seems to be that there's a ton more PlayStation threads that get made, which bumps this one down the pile and sometimes even onto the second page, whereas when it comes to, say, XBOX, everything is posted in the megathread. Honestly I think both ways are fine, and as Replicant has already established, I really only took this on because I didn't want to see PlayStation lose yet another megathread (This is like the fourth or fifth now, right?) and we didn't have anyone volunteering to make it at the time.

Do I wish I had more time to put into the thread to bring it up to the same level as the XBOX one? Yes, yes I do. Am I still happy with how it's turned out regardless? Yes, yes I am. When I made it, I even stated in the OP that it'd be a community based thing rather than just one person (Myself) posting everything, and honestly you guys have all been awesome with posting news and stuff in here... also if you guys want new polls every week or so, feel free to submit ideas and I'll cook something up, otherwise I could just make a random poll every other week or so that will be related to PlayStation one way or another lol
