I only own an Xbox at the moment but like to keep an eye on what's going on with Sony. This game has me excited and seems that I should aim to buy a PS4 before 2016!

If you're going to get a playstation just to play No Man's Sky why not get the PC version when it's released (unless you don't have a PC either)?? That's my plan. I've heard in the past it was supposed to be a timed exclusive for PS4, but now I've seen it stated the release date will be the same.

Same here, PC version for me. But to be frank, it's still not clear to me whether or not this game will end up being boring after a few hours.

Pretty much it :p Both my personal and work laptop aren't exactly top spec. I've been contemplating for a while now and the release of this game convinces me.

Guess that answers that! :) Though I honestly hope the system requirements aren't too high, as my PC isn't exactly a monster machine either...

An excellent point. The concept and execution of the game sound really cool, but it'll be very interesting to find out what playing it actually ends up being like.

I have no doubt that some people will find this game boring.  There isn't a strong narrative in the game so if you need a compelling story to have fun in a game it's probably not for you.  On the other hand if you enjoy running around in Minecraft or playing around in the GTA/Fallout/Elder Scrolls world besides running the story missions then there's a good chance you'll like this game.  I know I personally love open world games and I'm really looking forward to this one but I also know that many people don't like to be just given a world/galaxy to play with and told to do their own thing.  Not every game is going to please everyone.

Explore, fight, trade.  There isn't a specific way to play the game.  Some crazy people might just spend their entire time playing it exploring their starting planet (unlikely, but possible).  In theory you're supposed to work your way to the center of the galaxy but that goal is along the same lines as in theory you're supposed to try to get to the end and defeat the dragon in Minecraft... many will play the game and never even try to get to the center of the galaxy.

Exploration is the main focus as you'll be discovering planets, flora, and fauna that no other person has ever seen before (not even the developers).  In order to explore farther you have to earn credits to upgrade your ship and gear though.  Your ship has a limited jump range at the start, your suit limits what environments you can survive on outside the ship, your weapon limits your mining, combat ability.  You can earn credits by harvesting resources, trading, fighting, logging new creatures, places. etc.  Again there is no specific way to play.  You can play as a pacifist explorer, you could be a pirate, you could be a merchant, etc. etc.

The dev, being an indie, wanted to focus on getting it out for the PS4 and PC for now. Microsoft has stated that if the dev gets it running for Xbox One they would love to have it on their platform too (not just on their Windows platform). Now there is question (rumor) that it will make it on the PS4.

I guess I have a reason to keep my ps4 then. Hopefully the slot loading drive on this replacement lasts longer than 2 months like the first ps4 I got

“As we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards,” director Sean Murray wrote on the PlayStation Blog this evening. “I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special.”

Seeing some of the reactions to the rumour earlier, I think I'll keep my distance from this game until it comes out...

Seriously, death threats for reporting a game being delayed? Those twisted ######ers need to be sorted out.

      Universal Media Server 10.6.0
      by Razvan Serea



      Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server. UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, in order to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility. The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats. Because it is written in Java, Universal Media Server supports all major operating systems, with versions for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

      No Man's Sky visuals get a massive overhaul with the new Prisms update
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Hello Games has been updating its space exploration and adventure game No Man's Sky with fresh content for almost half a decade now, and it is not done yet. The latest update, dubbed Prisms, is aimed towards dramatically increasing the game's visual fidelity while also adding the ability to adopt and ride flying creatures.

      The visual improvements come from the addition of screen space reflections for higher quality reflective surfaces, alongside enhanced volumetric lighting, light refractions, as well as rain and weather density improvements, among other effects. There is now even an advanced photo mode to take the new graphics for a spin.

      There are also new audio and visual effects for warp travel, more alien looking subterranean biomes, a huge increase to the number of stars that can be seen across the sky, and – as Nvidia announced earlier this week – DLSS support. Fur rendering is also in for the first time, giving appropriate creatures the all-important fuzzy look.

      Not all enhancements are available across every platform though. Screen space reflections are only enabled on PC, the new generation consoles, and the Xbox One X, with support for PCVR coming soon. Old-generation consoles are also missing out on the planetary detail improvements this update carries. Meanwhile, Xbox One S and PSVR platforms aren't getting the new fur rendering

      The No Man's Sky 3.5 Prisms update has now shipped out across all systems. The official patch notes of the release can be found here.

      Component shortage fails to slow PC growth in Western Europe, says Canalys
      by Paul Hill

      According to new research from Canalys, PC shipments in Western Europe during the first quarter reached 16.1 million units representing year-on-year growth of 48%. The analyst said that despite component shortages and high demand for PCs to enable working from home, the supply chain is in better shape than in Q1 2020 when COVID-19 brought everything to a standstill suddenly.

      HP saw the most shipments at 4.1 million units, representing 26% market share and Lenovo saw 4.0 million shipments, representing a 25% market share. In the following three places were Dell, Apple, and Acer who had market shares of 14%, 10%, and 9% respectively. Of these, Apple saw the highest growth, up 127% year on year. Canalys said that the new M1 chipset was a major driver behind sales of new Macs.

      Commenting on Apple’s success in Western Europe, Canalys Research Analyst Trang Pham said:

      As we emerge from the pandemic, Canalys doesn’t believe we’ll return to the world as it was before the pandemic. Instead, it sees employees doing more remote work which will keep demand for PCs high. Over the next 12 months, Canalys doesn’t expect PC supply to match the “sustained demand surge”.

      The Normandy SR1 from Mass Effect comes to No Man's Sky
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Mass Effect fans can now take a break from the Legendary Edition to boot up another sci-fi game to catch the SSV Normandy SR1 in action. The No Man's Sky community that completed the second expedition (Beachhead) that arrived at the game last week had a surprise waiting for them when they reached its end, with Shepard and the crew's stealthy vessel greeting them as the reward.

      The official cross-over between the two space games had spawned out of a collaboration between Hello Games, BioWare, and EA. The No Man's Sky Expeditions update from last month delivered this form of seasonal community missions, where all players in the mode strive towards a single objective by completing various milestones situated across the stars.

      The Beachhead expedition had space goers accomplish milestones that had them figuring out the purpose of the "Historiographical Dosimeter", translating hidden messages, and attending to monoliths spread across the universe among their steps to finally summon the surprising grand prize.

      With the mystery out of the way, the Normandy is available to be added permanently to the frigate fleet of anyone that completes the Beachhead expedition. Interested fans may want to hustle though, as the expedition and the opportunity to claim its sleek reward will go away on May 31.

      It sounds like this won't be the only crossover we will be seeing from Hello Games going forward. This August will mark the fifth anniversary of No Man's Sky, and the studio has said to expect more surprises soon.
