My son's PS4 has died, looks like the HDMI port is damaged. He's gutted. It should be an easy fix though.

Do you have a spare TV to try it on? Its a common fault and sometimes using it on another TV or then dropping it into safe mode (hold down the power button until it beeps twice when you switch it on) means you can retell it to talk to TV's. Also change the HDMI cable if you have a spare.

Happened to mine.

Yep. We tried it on 2 TVs, the old one and the new one as well as swapping over 3 HDMI cables (one is brand new). He even took it to a mate's house to try. He used his mates cables as well. Nothing.

I've had a quick look online and it appears that it's an easy fix - usually costs about £40.

Been playing Battlefield 1 pretty religiously recently been going up through the ranks. I'm now an officer cadet...still pretty crap though when you compare me to the others I'm playing against. I seem to be really struggling with my aim. Maybe my eye and finger coordination is just bad!

Picked up FIFA 16 for 2 quid today from GAME might be a couple years out but doesn't bother me as long as you can pass the ball about, shoot and most important score I'm all in!!

I got BF1 a while back, bought off a friend at work. And played it twice for about 30mins in total. It's great, but I just can't find the time. I'm hoping to be able to play over chrimbo.

I have also asked santa for COD WW2 and/or battlefront 2 as well

I'm loving the Xbox One X !!

Forza 7 is definitely the game to have, I've never enjoyed Career mode on a racing game but I actually want to finish this one!
From endurance races in a Le Mans race car to City Sprints in a Rally car. Open wheeled F1 cars around a park circuit to matching the production car lap record for the Nordschleife. World Touring cars or Mercedes Trucks... Rain, Sun, Night or a mixture of the 3; it has everything to keep you busy.

I'll get CoD on the Xbox when they support keyboard and mouse, until then I'll stick to the PC

I'm the same Kwacky. The joy sticks are difficult to use hence why I'm bad at BF1. However played on a PC for quite some time when I was a teenager (15 -18) and my aim was very good. I'm better with mouse and keyboard rather than controllers. But this was going back years so I may of changed. I am try I g to learn how to use the controller!
