As TyrantII brought up in the other thread, Radio Shack is selling the 3G and Wifi Vitas for only $160 (online only, down from $200). Any future remote players around here might want to get one because they have never been lower in price.

Knack just...just can't see that NOT free on PS+ in <6 months...
Maybe Fifa14 but I just got Fifa13 on PS3 and have yet to figure how to play the darn thing.




Also if you are getting the PS4 Eye camera there is the Sony Playroom software that comes pre loaded on the PS4 already.

My family went to go see Thor: The Dark World yesterday, and they showed a preview for this game before the movie. My kid saw it and instantly wanted it. They have a LOT of fun with LEGO Star Wars games, so I could see this one being just as good or better. The number of potential characters is staggering (LEGO Star wars, the complete saga has a crapload of characters. Marvel heroes should have a lot more)

Stand tall and shake the heavens...

Well fellas, I'm pretty stoked. My credit card was just charged by Futureshop this morning so I may actually have my PS4 for launch day. I picked up Shadowfall and Call of Duty last week at an EB Games, so I'm ready to roll.

After having the PS1 and PS2, then going to the 360, it's time to hook up with Sony again.

This is my first console at launch! Woo Hoo!

Well, I might be getting a PS4 after all. My original plan was to pick one up at launch. However, both Infamous and Drive Club slipped to next year, so I was going to wait on the PS4 and only grab an XBO. If I can get in on the B2G1 for PS4 games I will have to consider keeping my preorder and grabbing Kill Zone, Battlefield and either Knack or AC4.

I love system launches.

I'm fine with waiting on that, but I really want to have KZSF and Knack here for launch day, so need to order real soon. Hurry up code!

Was thinking about AC4 over Knack, but I got a feeling it's going to be a boring slugfest and possible a bug fest. I don't think I can blind buy into the franchise knowing it's history.

Looks like they are not honoring the promotion for any orders placed after the 9th so I would call them (I got dropped from chat twice) if your up to it or just cancel and wait till noon on tuesday

I just noticed after I updated my shipping option, that this will be the first order that I've place through Amazon, where they will be collecting Wisconsin sales tax. The cost went from $407.94 to 430.38. I had big plans for that $22.44. wink.gif

My NeoGAF account was finally validated. Probably want post much over there, I just like reading it mostly.

Anyone's Amazon pre-orders order status changed yet? Mine has not but, ever since becoming a Prime member, I normally get movie pre-orders a day early so, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the PS4 may get here on Thursday. If it ships sometime tomorrow then I'll get it early with the free 2-day delivery.

I'm hoping as well. My extra DS4 and my copy of COD: Ghosts both arrived a day ahead of projections. Fingers crossed...

Yes, it would be nice to get a SSD, but their competitors dashboard seems to be a lot quicker then theirs.

Thats based upon what ? Have you tried both somewhere ? I wouldn't put too much salt into any video released by either Sony or MS since disk caching of receiently used items can make things faster then they would have been .

I don't think we will know one way or the other until we start to see some unscripted data from third party sources.

There was a video of a very buggy display unit, but that wasn't final hardware / OS. Shu even tweeted, "something appears to be wrong with it"

For both consoles, as we approach launch, remember there will always be a small number with problems and possibly even DOA units. No way around it, and it always ends up on the internet. Cause everyone else will be busy with their band new consoles.

Sony > MS at building hardware.

MS > Sony at building operating systems.

Also, MS has allocated a lot more of the XB1's resource to the OS then the PS4. Also, the OS is essentially the XB1's claim to fame, everything in that box depends on it. All that fancy instant switching between games, TV, Skype, movies, back to games, snap in a Skype etc. has to work great or it will be deemed a failure. So, MS has obviously worked harder and longer on the XB1's OS because with out it, they have nothing. They did this at the expense of game performance. Sony is trying to get the games right first, and work out the other kinks next. The PS4's OS doesn't have to be as smooth as XB1 out of the box IMO because, frankly, I don't plan to spend a ton of time there.

Maybe I'm wrong but, that's my thinking plus, I didn't think it was that bad in the video.

The PS4 doesn't have a snap function so its resources are fully available when in the OS. There is memory set aside for the OS but no GPU that we are aware of since while in OS the Game is not running or paused..

Agreed. I spend the least amount of time at the UI as possible. I've gotten used to the XMB and its not really all that bad for weighing in at what, 50 MB? That's pretty impressive. I used to think the 360 dash was cool until I saw how much resources it wastes compared to XMB.

I'll be very disappointed if the PS4 all access event if filled with PS3 junk so, it better mean a PS4 version is coming. Why would anyone watching a PS4 launch event care if a PS3 game is getting DLC? I don't own a PS3 and I have no plans to buy one ever again so, don't ruin your own launch event by talking about your 7 year old console.

I think it means a PS4 version of TLOU is coming. If so, I know what I'll be saving my $40 PSN credit for.

Maybe their using the event to announce the DLC for PS3 and something else for PS4? Might be cool to play a PS4 version but now I'll be disappointed if that's all they reveal. Kind of hoping for a new Uncharted or better yet a new IP.

Yep, and I'm one of them. I've been dying to play TLOU ever since it came out but, I wasn't going to buy a PS3 for 1 game with new consoles on the horizon. So, I'm one 360 convert that is really hoping for a PS4 version. Shoot, I'd take a straight port with no next gen upgrades at all, I just really want to play the game.

Didn't bother with the PS3 version, so I would buy Last Of Us for PS4 day 1.


Sub-1080p/60fps is not next-gen.
