Yes, you need BT USB dongle. Creative have.

Or you can buy those cheap ones from online shopping sites.

anyone got a discount code for this?
thinking of getting the BT-W3 for its aptx-HD to use with my Sony XM3 headphones.

on a side note, anyone using the PlayStation Platinum Headset? does the 3D Audio really make a difference?

I did plan on buying the Sony headphones for PC and console gaming but decided that the premium doesn't justify the sound or build quality.

same hesitation here. really just want it for the 3D Audio... maybe I'll wait for the new PS5 one... and hope it's backward compatiable.

I dont get why e hate for this game. Currently i am 3/4 through e game. My current impression is yes alot of story choices are not to my liking. Abby is extremely unlikeable as a character be it design or e things she do. Ellie and Dina in my opinion has no or little chemistry.

My point is at end of the day. U also cant deny that this is a very good game with high production value and the attention to detail (graphically) is amazing. Gameplay wise its similar to the 1st with bigger level design and minor improvements here and there. So if u enjoy e gameplay of e 1st one u probably will enjoy this one as well.

I dun think its fair to say tat this is a bad game. At least i am enjoying it. Storywise there are parts i do not agree with but there are still parts that r quite touching. If i were to give a score now i will prob grade it 7/10. Ppl that say this game is garbage really only doing it out of spite.

Sales will drop off in the months ahead, I predict its life time sales will be far lower than tlou1, despite it costing a lot more to make.

The narrative is everything for a game like tlou, this isnt COD or BF, the game didnt even ship with factions anyway (which was surprisingly popular).

Someone that I know replied when asked about TLOU2:
  • I'm torturing myself through it. Think i'm finished around tomorrow, i'll let you know my opinion.
  • Though unless the end redeems the current **** that has happened it's an absolute dumpsterfire
  • Best to watch a game movie on YT then. Gameplay is pretty trashy
  • Yeah. To make it as spoiler free as possible: everyone's a cardboard and old characters suddenly changed their whole personality

https://www.change.org/p/sony-remake...-of-us-part-ii
Spoiler!


Hate is probably because the first game was a masterpiece and this game isn't. Putting makeup on a pig just makes it a good looking pig, it's still a pig underneath.

You enjoy the game you happy can already, doesn't give you the right to deny other people's opinion. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and it smells like shiat.

Hi galliano,

If your TV supports Bluetooth devices connection, you can try to pair it with your TWE (or any other BT-enabled ear/headphone) & then you'll be able to hear PS4 audio.

Of course, your PS4 audio output must be connected to the TV via HDMI or Composite Audio / RCA cable for the above to work...

If AVR is involved, it should still work, provided the AVR is configured to pass-through audio to the TV...

HTH.
Thanks mate. Did not think bout using BT direct from TV. Thatís a good point.
Well, Iím using a trusty 7yr old 55í LG FHD. No BT for sure.

Honestly Iím at limbo/dilemma stage. My PS4 (already 6yrs, fat 500Gb) has started to occasionally go into Ďrest my mode on its own. Especially during my COD warfare sessions.

Pondering to wait for PS5 or simply get a used PS4 Pro.

Very surprised my PS4 could have lasted me so long already. I recall I changed PS3 twice.

err i find this game way more enjoyable to play compared to the first. the gameplay mechanics and level design blows the first one out of the water. this is the 2nd best playing 3rd person shooter this gen behind mgs5. in fact, i tried playing the first one again and honestly it was quite hard to continue. not to mention the audio work and incredible visuals really adds to the atmosphere and immersion. try play with headphones on.

The narrative is everything for a game like tlou, this isnt COD or BF, the game didnt even ship with factions anyway (which was surprisingly popular).
ill disagree here. at the end of a day, it's still a videogame. a game with poor narrative can be salvaged with good gameplay but a game with poor gameplay cannot be salvaged with good narrative. which is why i dropped red dead redemption 2. that game couldn't even get something as basic as controls right. and the gameplay was horseshit. same deal with witcher 3.

I'm on the opposite camp, a game can have normal/bad gameplay but a good/great narrative wins over everything. Spec Ops: The Line, One Shot, Undertale, Children of Morta. These are games I've come up when I think about strong narrative because they left a huge impact on me with their great stories.

Witcher 3 had everything so not sure how the gameplay was horseshit.

the combat for sure. and the quest design. and the controls too. this game at launch had control issues. but luckily CDPR acknowledge the issue and released a patch to "fix" the controls. but tbh, it's still not really ideal but way better than it was before...
