  • Dreams EA pre-launch checklist

    With just a few days l do until Dreams EA launches, I thought I’d make a little preparatory checklist of steps that will help us all get playing/creating/sharing as soon as possible:
    • Check your time zone - EA will become available at 10:30am BST for Europe, Australia, and New Zealand regions. For US and Canada it will go on sale at 8:30am PDT
    • Put some money in your ps wallet ahead of time (£24.99/€29.99/$29.99/CAD$39.99)
    • If you’ll be away from your PS4 at launch but you want peace of mind in buying it right away, you can sign into your account on a mobile device to make the purchase.
    • Make sure you have free space on your PS4 HDD - there’s been no official word on the amount of space needed, but considering the small download size of Beta and the fact that EA has no campaign, I think 10gb should be enough.
    • Consider starting up your PS4 in Safe Mode and Rebuild Database. This can help performance especially if you’ve deleted a lot of content from the HDD.
    • Be prepared to back up your profile and creations. PS+ is a convenient way of doing this as you can set it to back up automatically, or you can connect a USB storage device and do it manually.
    • If you plan on using 2 Move controllers, make sure you have adequate space. I find that 7ft from the PS Camera is ideal. If you haven’t used Moves in Dreams before, I highly recommend learning the basics on the DS4 first and then trying the Moves.
    • Stock up on snacks and try to get a little extra sleep before launch day, and once you’re in the Dreamiverse please remember to take regular breaks and drink enough water!
    I look forward to seeing you all there

    I like the suggestion for stocking up on snacks. Only 4 more days!

      Maybe we need a split into a Dreams snack thread. Since everyone is likely thousands of miles apart, I'd love to see what people are snacking on. I went grocery shopping today and picked up some junk food I don't normally buy. I had a few crackers then decided I'm not gonna touch another thing until launch day.

        7 feet from the camera? Damn. I have a pretty small space and plan on sitting quite close to the camera. Hopefully it'll work!

          The height and angle of the camera probably comes into play, maybe also how you use the Moves also. At first I was using bigger gestures than needed and as I got more practice I was able to use smaller movements.

            Great list, I'll buy Dreams immediately, but I'll start playing it like almost a week after launch because I have some stuff to do in LBP3. See y'all on the other side I guess.
