I'm in the same boat. Have the original PS Wireless headphones and I game on a computer monitor. I'm stuck using that cheap earbud if I wanna talk or a cheap 10 dollar set of headphones. BTW my TV is plasma and gets IR(Image Retention) easy, the reason for that setup.

Wesley853466d ago

Is it a brand new plasma? You won't get image retention once the TV has bedded in for over 200 hours. Image retention will also disappear after 10 minutes anyway. Only image burn last much longer but that is a thing of the past now.

Tru_Blu3466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

HUD sticks around for quite a bit after gaming. Also much harder to see stuff at distance on the TV. I have a VT50 and use THX Cinema as the picture mode. And no I've had it for nearly a year, great TV but not ideal for gaming.

Wesley853466d ago

Funny enough I have a 55VT65b and use THX cinema mode too. Iv not heard of many reports of IR problems with that set and certainly not my set. You must be very unlucky. The VT65b is stunning with no problems such as lag or IR. Did you get 5 years warranty?

Rockstar3466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

Same. ST50 here. No problems with IR.
No THX settings on my tv though if thats the reason.

WickedLester3466d ago


In regards to plasmas, that's not true at all. New plasmas, even after the break in period can still get image retention! I have a Panasonic VT60 that I bought back in July. It has well over 200 hours of break in time on it and it still can get IR if left on a static image for too long. Now permanent burn in, I haven't experienced that but you really have to abuse the set to get permanent burn in.

Wesley853466d ago

@wickedlester you have the same TV as me then. VT65b is the English version of the VT60. Im a heavy user and have had my TV on for 2000 hours since I bought it in May. Iv had static images on my screen for over 4 hours at a time and not a hint of IR. Perhaps it's something to do with variations of components used in different sets.I can honestly say IIv never suffered with IR on any plasma after 200 hours break in time.

i use my pulse with audio lead for sound and ps camera for voice works well

MizTv3466d ago

I also have a pulse but I didn't think it worked yet
Can I still hear the game with them?

Rockstar3466d ago

they will work with an audio lead from the controller to to the set. Downside is it's only stereo sound.

legionsoup3466d ago

The Pulse headset works with the PS4. Just plug it in to the bottom of the controller and then go to the sound settings. The sound even comes out in surround sound in the headset. And you don't even have to turn on the headset's power. It doesn't give the bass feedback, but it does do everything else (surround sound play, and voice chat).

My biggest issues right now are that some games still crash (Knack, Battlefield), and there is an echo during the voice chat sessions.

dantesparda3466d ago

I can confirm that NFS Rivals crashes to.

StoneyYoshi3466d ago

ive had nfs rivals crash once and that was only on my first playthrough. thats the only gam that has crashed on me.

Blaze9293466d ago

here we go with all the updates no one wants again.

dantesparda3466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

Nobody wants to have their system stabilized?

ziggurcat3466d ago

Xbone had an update yesterday. Also it had a day one update, so... Go back under your bridge where you belong.

Back-to-Back3466d ago

Well thank god you dont have a ps4 so no need to worry.

KontryBoy7063466d ago

plug your headset into the controller problem solved.

HDCP restriction should be removed....

admiralvic3466d ago

It will be... just in the future at some point. =\

wolfsaviorzx3466d ago

I hope so, reason I havn't grabbed one yet. I hate HDCP as much as Mandatory DRM. Xboner reversed their policy so I picked up their box now just waiting for the PSQuad to fix theirs.

admiralvic3466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

@ Wolfsaviorzx

I got to say, that is easily the most illogical reason to skip out on a console I've ever heard. Even if you hate HDCP, you can just buy a splitter or a device that removes it. This isn't a feature you absolutely have to deal with, but instead choose to out of cheapness or blind rage at a feature that doesn't technically harm anyone. I mean, unless you want to stream, there isn't any real reason to hate HDCP. In fact, I am willing to bet most consumers aren't aware the PS3 or most bluray players even have such a feature.

CarnageXB3466d ago

I want hdcp removed too. My monitor doesn't support it and all I get is a blank screen. So I'm having to borrow a monitor for now.

LOL_WUT3466d ago

Pause/resume downloads? I hope so ;)

DarkBlood3466d ago

i believe you can already do that unless im missing something?

R1V3N3466d ago

your missing something

WhatchaTalkinBout3466d ago

nope you cant, but it might pause if your playing an online game.. i much rather pause/resume the dam thing...

BadlyPackedKeebab3466d ago

Or at least prioritizing.

Having said that I am pretty sure i made changes by just pressing X on stuff. Cant remember what it did or what the effect was though.

LetoAtreides823466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

You can sort of prioritize downloads if your downloading many things at the same time. Let's say you're downloading 10 things you'll notice some of them are queued up, click x on the one you want to prioritize and it'll start it up and put a different download on queue.

I do wish they'd add the option to pause downloads and give us a better method of prioritizing downloads. I know it's coming, I just want it sooner rather than later.

0pie3466d ago

i dont know why, even if my options are set to enable auto download in stand by mode, it doesnt work when my ps4 is in standby.

dantesparda3466d ago

hey opie

check settings/power save settings/set functions available in stanby mode and make sure the proper options are checked of

SniperControl3466d ago (Edited 3466d ago )

Thanks prodg52, lol I have just woken up, read it wrong. Not had my morning cup of cowoffe yet.

prodg523466d ago

This is just suggesting that you leave it in standby mode to auto download the update.
