interesting. My unit does not make a sound.

I am one the those Sony fans that was not happy about paying to play online. I was not surprised that Sony would do this with the PS4 since Microsoft got away with it with the 360. Sony would be crazy not to charge since the general public did not really seem to care. So as a huge Killzone fan, I sucked it up and paid. Now that I have Grid 2, Borderlands 2, and LittleBigPlanet Karting for free, I must admit that I was wrong.... I should of bought PSN+ awhile ago...

Even if you never play a game online it will be worth it in the end.  I got it when it first came out and I have so many indie games and ps3 titles still to play that I probably never will.

Cold winter, yes. But also, from my reading on how to apply thermal paste on CPU & GPU chips in computers, posters in forums say the thermal paste settles in and provides better heat transfer than initially installed so maybe that is happening. My PS4 is extremely quiet, well, I don't hear it over the 4 120mm fans running in my AV cabinet.

Pro-tip: Use an AMEX gift card (call and apply your credentials to the card) and it becomes a certified useable credit card. I just used an AMEX card I got from a tigerdirect rebate on SEN and it worked perfectly biggrin.gif
You can also use the same setup to try Unlimited Music, etc.

I have the same issue with mine and I was going to take it back to BB and get another, but like you said it is not in the annoying phase so I said F it. I do have mine standing vertically (which I hate doing but I am cramped for space), but I think I am going to retire my 360 or PS3 to make room so I can lay it down and see if that helps since I keep hearing about these apparent vents that get blocked when standing vertically.

Yeah, I agree with Big Brad. Games to keep BF4 and KZ I bought on disc, but now wish I went digital. I am getting tired of switching discs. So my options are to trade discs in at Gamestop for $40 each then buy digital versions at the PS store. Anyone do this? Does the digital version download partially for digital authentication or does it redownload and totally overwrite the disc install version? Does the ps4 remember your rank and game info once the digital version is installed. Dont want to lose my rank in BF4 and not sure they are using cloud back up as the PC version.

You'd have to re-download the game entirely. Installs from discs are treated differently than downloaded games.

It should remember rank and such, just as if you logged in on a separate PS4 and played BF4 through your own account.

Enjoying BF4 on the PS4, bugs and all.

2015 Mustang is a free download for NFS:Rivals now. Once I figured out how to switch the camera (R1) the game started to grow on me. It's a lot of fun just driving around and taking out cops or other racers. Sometimes I'll knock out the cops that are following another player if his health is low. It was frustrating at first as I needed to get use to the handling and didn't have pursuit tech. It felt like the cops were overpowered, but now that I have the handling down and have maxed out pursuit tech (ESF and Shockwave are my faves) I can rack up 250,000SP runs pretty consistently. I do wish there was a way to take down choppers.... just because it would be cool.

Seeing a lot of the same great weather and water effects as BF4 is pretty cool as well. It makes me wish they would add speedboats, since the water effects in Frostbite 3 are so awesome.

I have really been thinking about getting this since I feel FM5 being a let down and my boss just gave me $50 so maybe I can get a used copy from GS on the way home.

You and me both. I tried Grid from Plus on the PS3, different I know but I just didn't get into it. Was really hoping we'd have Drive Club to tinker with for free.

I basically bought my ps2/3/4 for Gran Turismo. Been following that path ever since.

So GT7 obviously.
Skipping Rivals as I have Most Wanted(reboot) on my PC and it looks almost identical.
Drive Club... meh... I'm reserving judgement on that title until I play it first hand because it can go both ways. Same goes for Crew.

Plus does make your freebies expire but at $50 your at least getting one game a month, even at $10 a game, that's $120 value at least. Now get a PS3 & Vita and the value really stacks.
