I might decide to hold off on the PS4 when its the PS4 that's calling to me. The wait from the official announcement in Feb to release seemed like an eternity. Now I'm waiting for the stars to align so I can get one guilt free (and there are none in stock locally).

That game is terrifying. You've got to play it in the dark, but the last thing I need before going to bed is to be chased around by burly psychopaths with their junk swinging around.

I wasn't trying to get to technical here, but yeah, you need to include the money you could have earned if you invested money, and you would also need to consider inflation, to determine the buying power when the money was made, and when you receive the money back from uncle Sam.

Is Bioshock Infinite now available for free for PSN members? I see it mentioned but not reflected on the PSN website. Too bad we can't play it on the PS4 so we don't have to dig out our PS3...

Same here. Since day 1. Took me two seconds to isolate the problem... I simply turned off my newest console first. Of all my consoles, the PS4 is definitely the loudest. Though, it doesn't always make that sound.

Thanks. Am I correct to assume that once we download it, it remains free for months to come (or indefinitely) as long as we have an active PSN+ membership? It looks like a fantastic game which I never played. But I may feel a little silly playing it while I still have first-rate PS4 titles I haven't started playing yet... smile.gif

You don't even have to download them.. you just need to purchase them in the store. they will always be linked to your Plus account.

So even if you don' have a PS3 or Vita you can still rack up the games for them

If you are a PSN+ member and don't "purchase" it for free this month, does that mean you cannot get it for free in other months? I'm just wondering if we have to stay on top of these freebies each month/week they are posted, or if once they are made free they're always free to purchase/download whenever.

I just moved my Xbox One next the PS4. Even though I prefer the PS4, I found that the XB1 operates much quieter than the PS4.

I ordered Ryse off eBay, so maybe my console preference will switch once I spend more time with the XB1.

The Xbox One was built to be near silent. No surprise that it is quieter.

Still, my PS4 is quieter than my PS3 slim, it isn't even audible from my couch 10 feet away.

Mine used to when I had it standing up vertically, but ever since I laid mine down flat I have not noticed the fan being overly loud and TBH I don't ever hear it. When it was up on its end I could hear the fan as it would ramp up during high activity sessions on BF4 but that is a thing of the past now.

I only hear my KZ or AC disc spin up. Have yet to hear the console at all. I've got a DLP TV and hear that fan far more than anything else. When my KZ disc spins up its audible but that's about it. My 360 was about the same as are my PS3s. Disc spin loud, system quiet. I sit away from them by about 6 or 7 feet and the consoles are in a 2.5" or 3" thick wooden stand that may channel and or absorb much of the noise.
