KZ multiplayer is a noticeable drop visually from the campaign but by the time your flying around the map having intense battles none of that even matters. But its like comparing Miss Universe and first runner up, both are hot. I still find moments in the MP to stare at the scenery like an idiot.

Learned something "interesting" yesterday. It was sort of an urgent situation (eager kids, Christmas Day) so I created a new thread. I posted the resolution there but figured I'd drop a note here as well as this thread obviously gets much more traffic.. So, in case it helps anyone...

It turns out that the ability for other users to play the master user's games is dependent on those games already having been downloaded such that they appear in the nav bar. If they are in the library but not yet downloaded, no joy. Why? Because if you check Library while logged in as another user, nothing will appear there. IOW the Library shows that users library, not the master user's library. I tried all combinations of activating/deactivating the PS4 as primary for the master user and other users. Nothing worked.

I finally got through to Sony support and they confirmed this behavior as correct. I suppose this makes sense as it's how the portability of one's library works so if you go to a friend's house you can play your games. But it wasn't the behavior I expected. It'll require somewhat more active management of installs and HDD space since my kids won't be able to jump into my library (unless I give them PW access) to download games.

I am actually surprised at how good Knack looks compared to what I was expecting from watching videos. My 7 year old loves it as well. Kind of a like a Ratchet and Clank without all the extra weapons so it is a bit of a simple in comparison to Ratchet and Clank.

Even "high quality" Youtube videos are pretty much worthless for getting an idea of how a game is going to look at home, that is for sure.

I am probably gonna fold and buy NFS:Rivals or Assassin's Creed soon as I only have KZ:SF, Knack plus Resogun. Well I ordered Skylanders: Swap Force for the son but I screwed up and ordered the PS3 version so I have to ironically swap it.

What would be the best way to connect a headphone like a Sennheiser HD 600 to your PS4 (and PS3 too for that matter) if you don't have an AVR? My friend is interested in picking up a high end headphone and is considering something like the HD600 and would like to get the best out of it.

Also, a bit more off-topic, but are there any really good wireless headphones out there that can be compared to the high end wired models? Or just connecting it to the DS4 (if that's possible lol) would be the best wireless solution using regular wired headphones?

See if you can find a used MixAmp 5.8 off of eBay.

Also, anyone having issues with buttons sticking on the DS4? The shoulder buttons on mine are starting to stay in...

Don't bother with the HD600 line if you aren't powering it with an amp or avr, it is a waste of power. Even the 500 series would be overkill if unpowered. For the controller, pick up something like the 201, I have a pair and they are surprisingly good and work great with the wireless feed.

For wireless, the Sennheiser wireless line (180, 220) are up there in quality, they would be the better bet since an AVR isn't needed for best results.

I installed this SSHD last week. Cheers to to Sony for making it ridiculously easy to upgrade the HDD. I haven't notice games loading faster but several on-line videos prove they do, especially using this drive. I bought it because I wanted/need the extra space. My plan is to download all future games.

Loving my PS4. I've posted before in this thread but it's my first Playstation. My friends are still giving me a hard time telling me I committed a gaming "mortal sin" by switching from MS to Sony but I don't regret it at all.

By the way, does anyone know of an audio cable that is compatible with my Turtle Beach X41's and the PS4 controller?

That is good to hear. I should be picking this up soon as I am running out of space on the HDD in my PS3 and they are releasing so many games for free to DL for PS+ members. I have never changed out HDD's in either console before so I am not sure how hard it is on the PS3, but from what I have read it seems simple enough. Guess I will have to search YouTube to make sure I do everything correct the first time.

I myself am also going from primarily using my 360 (95% 360 and 5% PS3 last gen) to the PS4 also. I also just picked up an XBone from BB on lunch today with gift cards and money I got for Christmas, but honestly if it does not impress me in the next month I have no issues returning it. My main reason is I was going to build a gaming rig and scrapped that idea so getting both consoles will have cost me about what I was going to spend on a gaming rig. I also like the fact that I will get the opportunity to play any of the exclusives out there regardless of the console they are on..oh yeah, and FORZA even though I know FM5 has the potential to be a let down but fully expect FM6 to blow me away.

Don't worry, they'll be committing it too soon enough tongue.gif . Make sure they see all the sweet deals you are getting from PS+

So is that price the normal price for the 1TB Hybrid drives? I plan to wait a while to upgrade my drive since I figure the 500GB will last me awhile since my PS4 is my secondary gaming system. Unless I see some ridiculously low price on the Hybrid drive..

I think that's how it's always been on both consoles, right? You need the game on and playable on the HDD to access them. This gen, with such large files, maybe one was still downloading and not ready and missing?

2nd ps4 is not connecting at all and can't play any DD games. Is PSN acting wonky? I am not at the primary unit locale to see if the problem has to do with 2nd ps4s accessing primary content/library or if all the people who got a PS4 yesterday are logging in and hammering the network. PSN status site says online and no troubles.

And it was just the opposite for me yesterday. I could see people from my firends list that were online, yet I couldn't play any games online. I was rather frustrated about it at the time. Hopefully I don't have any issues tonight.

Yea its a tad...off right now. Was able to pick up season one for Pinball and KZ season pass. Pinball must have came with all the tables, there wasn't an extra download for it and their all unlocked. Cant tell what the KZ pass does yet or if it takes a download. It does allow an OWL skin download though. Figured I'd get some cards and pick those up. Errored a few times in the store but seems to be sort of working.

I dumped MS this gen as well. Once MS said it was an all in one entertainment hub I jettisoned the idea of picking one up. I want a hard core gaming unit and that's all.

All the tables have a demo mode where you can play to the lowest high score, not bad for those looking to demo the game.

So is Don't Starve the PS+ game for PS4 in January? Or is it just being released? The way I read it is its the free game but I could be reading it wrong.

I don't think it is for PS4, PS3 (and maybe Vita?).

No its a PS4 game, look at the picture in the link.

It has to be the freebie for the PS4. The rest of the games showing are all the freebies.

Worms: Battle Islands for the Vita. I love a good Worms game.

With all the freebies of the PS3 being mentioned I wasnt sure if anyone discussed the PS4 one. I thought it was. Thanks
PENDRAG0ON's Avatar PENDRAG0ON 05:58 PM 12-26-2013
DMC and Bioshock Infinite are pretty big games for freebies, they overshadowed the indie game even though it was for next gen.
