My first PS4 video on youtube

A little while ago I was playing the game Destiny in which I managed to complete the jumping puzzle (climbing the mountain) of Felwinter Peak social space to acquire what they call a dormant siva. I got up pretty high and needed to get back down! It’s a jump and a half! I did it and decided to create a video of the event for YouTube, it’s my first edited movie from a PS4 and it wasn’t surprisingly that hard to create.

I used the iMovie maker on my MacBook, stripped out a lot of unwanted parts of the movie leaving a very short and straight to the point video. If I feel anything fun or funny happens to me in Destiny next time I play I am sure I will try and make another movie. But for now, enjoy.

 

YouTube app comes to PS3

Previously PS3 users had to use Youtube through the playstation internet browser. Now for those people that love to watch movies on Youtube they get a better app, with pairing abilities.

The refresh rate, and the rate at which you can download and watch top quality movies is impressive. However the major draw-back has to be the loss of the index system. Via your computer or laptop it’s harder to browser through collections, you might be after something, but you might not be sure of what you want.

For just simple browsing the youtube digital library seems to have taken two steps backwards. But at least they are going forward by intruducing the app to the PS3.

I for one feel there is much, much room for improvement, lets just hope they can fix the issues which I have stated.

PS4 Lunch

Have been watching the PS4 launch and it feels more about the games rather than the machine. Although the graphics engine does sound impressive and you can take games on the move with different devices such as the PS Vita. There does seem to be a lack of the console.

A few games stand out and one stood out to me which I liked the look of which was Watch Dogs. The game interface looked a lot like that used on Assassin’s Creed and the game setting seemed a lot like the show Person of Interest.

Many of the other games looked impressive, but there didn’t seem much of a fresh feel.¬† Everything felt more about connectivity and making money. Overall I was unimpressed.

 

My PS3, a death at such a young age!

There I was experiencing a bit of lag on the Playstation Home Network, suddenly all stopped and it went blank. I had realised my PS3 had crashed, so I held down the power button for 7 seconds to turn off the system.

What happened next;

Cannot start.
The appropriate system storage was not found.

Now I am so very sad, it’s died and my PS3 isn’t a year old. I am going to be on the phone to them in the morning.
