Sony announced that for playstation now a 5 mb/s connection will 'ensure a good experience'. Phew just made the cutoff. I just bought a better router but maybe this summer I will buy the best one Staples has. My speed is 15 mb/s but my ps4 in the basement only receives up to 6. I have the router set for dmz, the mac address open for the ps4, and the playstation network set as priority 1 within the router settings.

Was this the crappy 3rd person overhead view Tomb Raider that came out last year or is it a different one with gameplay more like Uncharted?

The overhead one was really good but this is the reboot from earlier last year. Pretty great game.

Here's a PC screen from my playthrough in engine or whatever they call it these days:

For $60, for a year old port. I'll pick it up for $20 in a month or two.

*That got the "HD treatment" over what it runs on a high end PC.

Still don't think it's worth $60, but it is getting quite the tune up visually to really show off these systems strengths. Higher poly environments, characters, physics, better lighting engine and weather systems. 4K texture pack that the PC doesn't have (yet).

It's a little more than a straight port.

Dittoing darthsg: you're thinking of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. If you don't think of it as a Tomb Raider game, it's a terrific game: when you played it co-op, every puzzle was modified to require two players to solve. Anyone looking for a co-op game that features combat, platforming, and puzzle-solving should check it out.

I bought this console for the visuals and if a redone 10 year old game delivers on this front I don't care when it was released.

My Walmart had two PS4s on the shelf (all they keep room for) and 15 Xbox Ones (out of 16) This is the second time I have seen the PS4 in the wild. (Both times ahead of a planned Sunday ad) Wii U only had one console, with room for 8. Well over 100 2DS and two 3DS XL. (Both Zelda models) Some normal XLs may have been buried under the mountain of 2DS. No Vita at all. (They don't seem to stock it anymore)

My town is Xbox dominated, to the point that Walmart only orders 10-20 copies of multiplats for Playstation consoles compared to 100 plus for Xbox. They have 5 shelves dedicated to Xbox, 4 to Nintendo and 2 for Playstation. The recent remodel took away a Playstation slot for Xbox stuff. Xbox One had a dedicated slot for games, but 360 stuff is already reclaiming it.

First time I saw PS4 out at a B&M store was today. They had 2 Ps4's and 2 Knack Ps4 bundles and 5 Xbox ones.

So it looks like I'll get a ps4 a little sooner than I thought. Found out our tax returns will be a good one this year. I'll grab a ps4 for infamous and the show and then get a Wii U in the summer. It will be a good gaming year for me.

I have a pair of Turtle Beach x42's for the 360. Is there a cable I can buy that I can run to the ps4 controller for voice chat while I run the optical cable to the console for sound?

Actually false. Getting a big return just means you let the government borrow your money from you for a whole year. You should be upping your deductions to be more towards the break even point and be putting that money in your bank account throughout the year, not the government's. Just saying.

Back on topic...love my PS4!!

Better to get it back than to owe.

And coming in at the break-even point is a delicate balance. Not everybody has the chops to do that.

Owing is technically better, due to the time value of money and interest. It's always best to pay bills when bills come due.

Whats not good is not having the money to pay those bills.
