Lesson learned though, I'm making backups now.
Or use a UPS. My PS4 has always been connected to a UPS. It has been fine with power outages and rest mode.

Which one? I've never had luck with mine staying online and I assume it was due to the device not being able to leverage the UPS software for power failure procedures.

And that's the problem. If the UPS runs down, I'm in the same boat. Not worth it to me. I'll just shut it down.

I planned on getting a UHD BD player, but if my PS 4 was going to have some kind of a software update to be able to play UHD then not reason to spend the $$. I guess the UHD BD player is the way to go.

Sony Computer Entertainment Executive Vice President Masayasu Ito spoke with 4Gamer to talk about future possibilities of an enhanced PlayStation 4 for Ultra HD Blu-ray compatibility.

During the recent interview, 4Gamer brings up the topic of Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray, and asks the Executive Vice President about Sony Computer Entertainment’s thoughts on the subject, and whether we’ll have some sort of compatibility with it in this era of the PlayStation 4.

“The Blu-ray disc drive that is currently installed in the PS4 is made exclusively for the Blu-ray disc player, so it cannot read the 3-layer media that is standardized by Ultra HD Blu-ray,” says Ito. “For this reason, the PlayStation 4 models that are out in the market cannot be compatible with Ultra HD Blu-ray.”

However, Ultra HD Blu-ray compatibility is something that the company is currently considering. Ito says, hypothetically speaking, they can indeed think of a way to make it possible, by making an enhanced PlayStation 4 model that is compatible with Ultra HD Blu-ray—but there’s more to it than that.

For example, “how many units of this enhanced PS4 will we be able to sell?” and “how much will we sell them for?” are just some of the questions that factor in the possibilities of making a new and improved PlayStation 4, which must carefully be examined through various perspectives. These are some of the topics that are currently in consideration.
I'm in no hurry to jump into UHD BD. I'm willing to wait to see what Sony does with the PS4 (maybe even PS5). I prefer having a spare console over having a dedicated player, unless there is no other choice.

No hurry here either let them come down in price first.

I'm for sure going to wait on uhd players and TVs. The current stuff is good, but there offerings a year from now will be even better and cheaper.

My current setup is performing very well. There are gains I will be missing out on for the time being, but they don't outweigh the cost of upgrades and the fact that the tech is still being improved.

I use APC 1500 models with the extended run time batteries attached to them. So the one that my PS4 is connected to, will get over 12 hours of run time with my devices connected to it. Unless I am using them during the power outage along with my TV and receiver. Then I'll only get around 2 or 3 hours of run time.

I totally understand. I'm in IT for my living, and have been since the 80s. I spend a lot of my time in places ranging from little server closets in small companies to some of the largest data centers on the planet. I have a total of 5 UPS's in my house (I had 6 but one failed recently), but I don't want to add another one just because the PS4 can't handle a blink when in sleep mode.

So... there are way too many games out recently or coming out that I am interested in. Just ridiculous.

-The Witness: out, by all accounts amazing, I need to play this
-Gravity Rush Remastered: out, seems awesome
-Unravel: looks amazing, first great platformer on PS4?, out next week
-Firewatch: could be a sleeper, seems very interesting, could be a nice story-heavy experience different from the other games coming out around this time; out next week
-PvZ:GW2: loved the first one, can play local split-screen in ALL MODES with my son, out in three weeks

...and I still need to find time for Battlefront, Rock Band 4 (going to be getting back into this now that the leaderboard wipe is done), and as always DriveClub. Oh yeah, I bought the Bloodborne Old Hunters expansion at release and I haven't even tried it yet .

I wanted to pick up the Uncharted Collection in the fall, but I decided to wait on it for when I had more time. But I don't think I am going to have more time for quite a while. Maybe I'll pick it up in the summer after I've played through Uncharted 4 a few times. Maybe. Of course, the spectre of PSVR is looming around that time, so yeah...

I know the "no games" narrative has been a joke for a really long time, but seriously... there are just too many games!

I was at Micro Center a few days ago and saw UPS systems for gaming consoles. Not sure what the difference is since they looked the same as the PC ones, but someone is making them.
