And of course since they were there every time I checked while at work, they are also available now. So I placed my order.

Now I just need to order the PS4 camera. I figured I would do that separately since I should be able to pick that up from a local store. Plus I guess I need to order a Playstation network card so I can purchase BF4 digitally. I already got several PS+ cards on Black Friday for $30 each.

I remember someone mentioning that Sony sometimes has a special where if you redeem a PS+ card that you would get something like 15 months instead of the normal 12 months. Is this correct? And if so, when does this usually happen? I'll need to hold back two of the three cards until they have this special.

Congrats!! biggrin.gif

When I purchased my PS4 it came with a code for 30 days of free PS+ so I would hold off using any of them until after the free trial.

I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :). Crap I say

Speaking of PSN+, I got the 1-Month Free that came with PS4 and I also have 7 days Free that came with Battlefield4. Can I use both of them or once I use one, that's it? I don't plan on using it right away just because I don't have time, but if I can only redeem one of them I want to make sure I do the month free first.

I'm debating this.

I think Best Buy is giving around $33.
You are way off on Gamestop, I think they are only giving around $25 according to their website.

I'd love to get around $40, then get the digital version of PS3, then upgrade to the PS4 for $10.

Thanks. I'll just wait until I have more time and do the 30-day trial first. BF4 is my first shooter since Counter-Strike way back in the day. I've gotta get some experience before delving into multi-play.

I was not aware this game was still up and running. I missed out on it when it originally came out and was going to buy it a few months ago, but from what I read the server were shut down.

I agree, an extended warranty for a $60 device seems like a waste IMO. That would be like buying extended warranties for every game you buy, just doesn't seem worth it IMO.


Speaking of the camera, can some of you that have it give some little reviews. I know there aren't any games for it right now, except that Playroom thing but, how responsive is it? Does it seem to be on par with the original Kinect, I don't expect it to be equal to Kinect 2? I'm considering getting the camera after Christmas but I'm still not sold. I wasn't a big fan of Kinect and actually sold mine after a few months but, the kids are getting older and are just now starting to try console games and I bet they would have fun with the camera, if developers support it in the future.

I played it until the wee hours of the morning, last Saturday night / Sunday morning. I was just about to start playing Assassins Creed on PS4, but noticed a good PS3 buddy playing WH. Before long another good PS3 buddy joined. Good times! There are definitely player servers going. Not sure about official Sony servers, I usually follow friends into games.

It is an advertised deal for this week I believe. I plan on taking advantage of it since I only paid $40 for my games, then I can rebuy them later for even less.

Hmmm, I never played it before and admittedly am not the biggest fan of third person shooter games but it could be something I give a try. Thanks for letting me know that there are still people playing.

I can verify that this is a real deal. Went to Gamestop last night and traded FIFA 14 and Killzone, I got $40 each plus an extra $2.50 bonus on each game for being a Powerup rewards member so total $42.50 for each game, not bad at all smile.gif

So Need For Speed was a totally awesome surprise. I bought it yesterday and fired it up, and then three hours later I emerged from my HT. That game is a lot of fun and this is coming from a guy that doesn't play racing games. I bought it due to the drought and I am not disappointed. I love chasing after the bad guys to bust them. Highly recommended.

No. If the PS4 is registered as primary machine anyone who accesses it has can access the PS+ benefits, so the kiddos can share the content and go online.

$40 in cash or gift card?

Tough spending money at Gamestop when everything is MSRP and they don't match prices.

Costco is selling AC4 PS3 for $33.
I could just grab that and upgrade for $10.
I can answer my own question.
Finally saw the link to the deal and ACIV Xbox One will trade for $40 in store credit.
Now to make the decision.
Is the PS4 camera worth it?

$40 store credit, you can then spend it on anything in store, including PSN points.

I plan to sell Ghosts and AC4 and get a point card and another game.

At present no.

You'll need to try out Playroom, besides that the only real "use" is if you plan to broadcast and want to grace the world with your handsome face tongue.gif. Likely will be fun to have later on, but at the moment it's an expense you can avoid.

I thought the PS4 camera also responded to voice commands? This is the main reason I ordered it. Since using voice commands with my XBOne, I have no desire to use just the controller to navigate which takes longer.

I wouldn't count on the voice commands being anywhere near as robust as the xb1.

Voice commands work with the included mic, give them a try.

So there is really no need for the camera for voice commands? I guess i can always return it if I need to. I'll pick it up today but I won't open it until after I get the PS4.

EDIT: Wait a minute? With the camera doesn't the PS4 sign in by facial recognition like the XBOne does? That is also a nice feature.

I don't want the PS4 to ever recognize my face, or monitor my heart rate, or scan my retina, or anything else along those invasive lines. Looks like I'll be avoiding the camera.

Scan whatever you want. I really don't care. Is there really anything that is private anymore anyway? I just want the opportunity for the PS4 to scan me. I don't have one yet. I'll bide my time. You'll be mine someday, PS4. Mark my words.
