In Australia we got the SBS app also.


SBS is a free to air TV Station (mostly programming from different countries) but at least its a start.
Hopefully we'll get the other Aussie stations soon

That upgrade ended up working out nicely, don't you think?

I've tried everything under the sun to try and fix the issue. I was able to get into safe mode if I plugged the original hard drive in, but nothing would work as I kept getting an error saying that the system couldn't access storage. With the 500Gb, safe mode was a no go.

Finally, it just comes on for about 3 seconds, then goes right back off. Oh well, I still had my 360 for single player last gen games.
This kind of happened to me when I upgraded the hdd on my phat ps3 that died. I would get that message, and I'd have to restart my system 1 sometimes more then 1 time to access the xmb.

Chalk it up to crappy quality video making that look near to a real life video. That looked so good, sound of rain was also something I don't think you ever hear in other games. If they had some effects on the windshield it would be even better. I remember, I think it was the last Descent game, had a pretty cool rain on windshield effect.


Check out the ocean off to the right at the start of that video, and the water effects on the road. This game is looking fantastic.

Played to like Paragon Lvl 2 or 3 on the PC a couple of years ago, but boy is this PS4 UE edition beginning to tempt me.

Yeah, it funny isnt it? The lower the quality of the video, the better it looks. It does look real, real nice though, even though there's no way in hell I'm tolerating a 30fps racer.

I wonder if youtube's new 60fps mode is going to have an effect on all this? Up until now, there's been no realistic way to market games in 60fps.

Lack of games/features and general PS4 news doesnt help either imo. And yes the new site layout is a CF!

Was thinking its been quiet but really there isn't anything going on to talk about. No games have released, no Microsoft failure to mock, no sales figures, things are just quiet all around.

The forums in general have been pretty quiet.

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

Yeah, not a lot of news and a dry spell in games. Thinking of getting Sniper Elite but kind of want a price drop first.

Still waiting for actual gameplay footage of PS4 The Last of Us.

October looks like a month packed full of games.

Welp there's news of the PS4 still very much struggling in Japan. Not certain how interesting that is for everybody on this side of the PacPond.

The destiny Beta does launch here next week, so that's something of note in the near future I suppose.

On the 3D gaming front Pupeteer looks completely bad butt on a quality 3D display! And mucho gracias to whomever on here recommended that to me. Major eye candy

Project Cars, alas, won't release until November. So that suckkkkkkks. Too many damn games for this holiday season. Too. Damn. Many.

Drive Club however hits a month prior and for my tastes looks awesome. Project Cars I hear is more of a simulation, I typically don't like GT/Forza (FH2 looks cool though with being able to drive through fields and stuff) games all that much but I'd still like to try Project Cars (it sure looks pretty).

I was all excited for Destiny until the alpha. Its not that its a letdown I'm just not as excited for whatever reason. Probably play too much FF14 I guess. Debating whether or not to skip the beta to prevent burnout, probably won't lol. Also No Mans Sky came in the picture. That I can't wait for and is probably more the experience I'm looking for and what I expected out of Destiny.

Japan doesn't mean much for consoles. The late release of the PS4 there kind of speaks to where the home market stands in the grand scheme of things.

Their importance in the gaming world was overblown for years compared to the percentage of the customer base that actually resided there. And the console business has been declining significantly in Japan in recent years which further erodes that. And for game development and publishing, they're weaker today than they've been since the late 1980's when Japan essentially resurrected the videogame console and then largely created the mobile offshoot of the business a few years later.

If Sony and Nintendo themselves weren't Japanese companies (Including some of their close partners like Polphony), they'd have little importance these days. Even one time 3rd party giants of the world like Konami, Capcom, and Sega struggle these days (And Namco and Square don't seem to thrive like they used to and don't seem far behind).

Yes it's completely dead. I guess the fact that it feels like there's a game drought doesn't help either.

Not that I'm a fan of the new design, but it is summer...

Also doesn't help that there are really no new releases until September and then they are packed into every other week.

I am really looking forward to Destiny and Elder Scrolls Online for the PS4. Thankfully I have a huge backlog of stuff for my PS3 to keep me busy .

An interesting idea. Has anyone tried this for streaming media in place of DLNA?

I may look into it to see if it's worthwhile

Just got my PS4 today after trading in my PS3, plus accessories. Got a good price in the end at Gamestop. I had alot of TRADE IN MONEY already, and with an extra 50% added to the trade in of the PS3 for a PS4, I walked out of there with it at a good price.

Anyway,i got it home, hooked it up, downloaded latest update, and all is working well. All the apps I want to use ar working just fine. It is hardwired to a Belkin powerline adapter, and is streaming well.

I just purchased the 3-year extended ACCIDENTAL WARRANTY from the Playstation store. I figured why not.

Anyway, after I make the purchase, is there anything else I need to do? It just has that little bag it the avatar for the warranty that says PURCHASED. I do not have to send them anything, do I(receipt/etc...).

I have a PSN account. I activated this PS4 this afternoon, and I am "guessing" that when the transaction went down correctly. Do I have anything else to do, or is my PS4 now covered for 3 years?

Is there anywhere to go on the PS4 to prove I am covered until July 2017?

Also, after I made the purchase, I get this THUMBS UP with a next to it, and then a RATE box next to that. i know what RATE means, but what is that Thumbs up mean? I can put a CHECK MARK next to it, or REMOVE THE CHECK MARK. What is that?

I despise the forum update, but general gaming interest will pick up in the fall.

I hated it at first. But I have gotten used to it. And I am actually starting to prefer it. Especially the text editor and ease of using emoticons and other graphics. And Yes...I see the same thing in all of the areas of the forum. Conversation has waned all over. Since Plasma died, and OLED stalled, the display area is like one of those Zelda graveyards. The Steam sale really lit it up in HTPC. But it all died quickly afterwards. The Xbox area is flat out schizophrenic these days IMO. Ditto in the game sites like IGN. I think the fall games will increase conversation a bit. But I really think there is a systemic problem in the gaming industry that is flying under the radar right now. Gamers are dissatisfied with a lot of things. Especially the proliferation of "average hardware" and gaming experiences.


IMO gamers in general are underwhelmed by all 3 of the new console launches (Nintendo, Sony, MS). And completely disappointed by the volume and perceived Quality difference from last generation. Plus I think they all underestimated how important backward compatibility was this time around. Since consumers had already been sold on HD gaming last generation...along with the noticeable escalating improvements with PC gaming at 1080p60fps. Nothing says this more to me than Sony PS4 tanking in Japan...MS Xbox One speeding in a shrinking circle in the USA...Nintendo out to the longest lunch I have ever seen, all over. Yet most of the optimism in the HTPC area, Video Display & HT area is around VR with Oculus Rift (OLED) and Sony Morpheus. So IMHO those 2 new platforms can't hit the market fast enough. And the chat wars will explode. Because the Video game, A/V tech & Movie conversation will shift finally into a true next generation future.


So I say...stay tuned. Sony could light it up this fall if it started beta testing Morpheus with PS4 in Japan! As Oculus Rift Starts to gear up for an early 2015 USA Launch for PC.

You and me both. I almost pulled the trigger back in May. But Decided to wait until I heard their plans for the end of the year. Big mistake! I won't miss the next window if it opens before the consumer launch.
