Let me know what you sold it for. I'm not a usual Gamestop patron (actually never) but when I found out one gets a 50% extra trade bonus one-time use coupon when they pay $15 to be a Pro member, I got significantly more than I would have on eBay and with MUCH less hassle. Might want to think about it before your auction ends; you can always end it early and tell eBay the unit is "no longer available."
I got $400.03 for all my trade in gear

ON TOPIC.
I've been eagerly trying to hunt down information about the Home Theater capabilities of the PS4. Is there ANYTHING about it?
I wish they would release more news.

I am really hoping for IP Control

And they're finding a way to squeeze even more advertisements right onto the main screen when you boot up!

I'm really hoping they worked out how to integrate Xbox Live Gold account into controller, so they can't be shared or sold on eBay.

Do you guys realize how crazy accurate I was by happenchance? ha!

The PS3 technically could handle all of the above but Sony in its infinite wisdom (and greed) elected not to support those files.

Meanwhile, people use XBMC, Plex and other software on the Mac (Win and Linux too) for free, or they get a Dune or Popcorn player and some use the newer Blu Ray players to stream content from their drives or Netflix and Hulu etc.

Sorry Sony, some of us just aint buying your "media center" BS-4. People with the PS3 should continue to use them and choose other devices for the difference that supposedly the new Sony Played-Out station will cover.

Gripe over (grin)
I had burnt a lot of BD-R's in the last few years some of them are 25GB and some are 50GB, They played fine on the fat PS3 and continued to do so on the slim that I have now, Few months ago Sony started releasing firmwares almost weekly, I put one of the discs that recently burned and it won't play so I thought it was just a disc error, I pulled out few discs that I'm sure they played on the same console before to my surprise they all gave the same error when the movie starts, The console drive would load the disc and displays the menu but only when hitting play it gives the error message, So yeah I will never consider the PS3, PS4 or any future PS# an entertainment center, It's a money making machine to push blu-ray and games discs sales, that's all.

I say if certain people don't like the PS4 and they think Sony is ripping them off then buy the XBOX. No one is forcing them to buy the PS4. Personally like I said I cant wait to get one.

They're a money making machine for downloads now. Sony wants proprietary downloads of games and movies... you're locked in like with iTunes. That's why they're pushing their movie file server that just so happens to be proprietorially linked to only Sony UHDTV's... but because of the infrastructure, streaming services, and the ISP's in this country, they can't even get 1080p right. That isn't stopping them. It's obvious what their game is.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

That's not the point, the point is if a PS4 replaces your region free blu-ray player, replaces your network media player streamer, even though PS3 and PS4 are capable of doing so but the answer is NO, because they want your money on every click or download you make, that's not entertainment it's called online shopping.
