Well it has snowed out there. By the time I open the curtains it is melting. My eyes have lost there soreness once more.
I head to the retro room and snuggle in. For the first time I’m ready to watch a screen. Even play a game? I get out the Uncharted series I had brought for the PS3. Yep it means starting Drakes Fortune again.
And so I play, in retro style, how this game was intended.
It is notable that PS3 services online have diminished and even the trophies are no longer forwarded to Facebook. It specifically says this now if you go to the setting.
I follow the storyline. Having a rest every now and again.
My parents come round and give me that parcel I ordered a week ago. So I dig out an old hardrive and backup the PS4.
I click the magic button and wait some ten hours.
Eventually it is time to unwrap the Western Digital drive.
Pull out the PS4 from its hiding place.
Take the cover off and unscrew the hard drive cage.
So here is the cheapo one Sony put in.
Unscrew it from the cradle.
And swap the cradle over.
Push it back in.
Insert the USB stick with the boot up software and
power her up.
Plug back in the hard drive and
tell it to restore. Ah. another 10 hours I see.
Some time later………..
