They probably wonder why all their pets die as well.

Yesh. Don't put electronics in a closed shoebox!

Easier to remember, I think.

Yeah, but at least it is more accurate than what that article wrote up. They obviously wanted to establish their own doom'n gloom title for the internet clicks, even if the PS4 unit never actually died. I'm sure their plan is working.

Congrats! I am trying my code tomorrow morning.

Oooo, I like the red light better!


Watch Dogs delayed and now this... now what am I going to do with my un-ventilated plastic box I just bought.

Next thing your going to tell me is that the PS4 will shut down if I submerge it in water. PS4 has disaster written all over it.

A cool ranch taco loaded with ice cold sour creme will keep that PS4 cool.

Looks like a cylon to me.

Where do I buy the Six model?

Digital PS4 preorders are starting to show up on the PSN. Knack and Warframe are up and the 2 PS Console rule is still in effect for the PS4.

Excellent news if true, lets hope they don't adjust the terms of the deal.

This sounds dumb, but What is the 2 console rule?

Basically, every digital copy can be active on two consoles. Great for people with a seperate theater with multiple consoles in the home. Add in cloud saves and it is great for these situations.

Oh ok. I'm certain I read a PSN account could be active on 3 consoles.

He's talking about playable games and DLC is locked to 2 active consoles.

It does suck for people with more than 2. I'll eventually be one of those. 3 would be ideal 4 even better.

I agree, I think 3 would have been the sweet spot but will have to make do:(
post #6408 of 15149
Could be wrong, but I believe the number of consoles you can "use" is higher. It just then limits playability of the content to the specific ID it's bought from (and is there a time limit/switch off limit or something).

The 2 machines is tying content to the actual machines, so any Id on those machines can use it, regardless of ownership.


Never had more than one machine, but thought I read thats how it works.

Got some more info from the guy that actually took the picture:
http://videogamescene.com/ps4-overheating-the-red-line-of-death/
Quote:
A photo has surfaced showing a demo PS4 console overheating and displaying what has been dubbed “the red line of death.” The picture was taken at a PS4 event in Spain and posted by Elotrolado member Homer J. Simpson in his report of the event. Here are his complete updated comments (translated from Spanish)…

“In terms of sound, practically none, you can hear the fan if you listened closely but nothing exaggerated. they had ventilated consoles and others put in enclosures completely closed that were running from 9am without stopping (we got there at 18:00 in the evening). they were running fine and were quite warm on the surface but nothing like our curreng generation consoles.

The only exception to that was one console that was completely enclosed in an acrylic case , it was showing a red light (where there would typically be a blue light) and there was a message on the screen that said the console’s temperature was too high. the Acrylic case was opened and within minutes the error message went away and the light went back to its normal color.

These consoles were test units, they seemed fully capable in every way.”

Good news to me. My hairdryer / foreman cooker phat was pretty bad towards it's EOL.

In two more weeks I will purchase and apply the last Amazon online gift card I need towards my PS4, which will allow me to transfer the cost of my launch order from the credit card to the gift balance. Pre-order layaway feels good when you can avoid interest fees. wink.gif

Wait? So even if you login with your PSN ID on a third console you won't have access to those games?

If so then I guess Sony has the better option for people with two consoles, but with three or more then MS would have the better option?

My guess is that you'll be locked to two PS4's and two PS3's for now, so technically, if you had 2 of each, I think you could bounce between 4 different consoles. Also at least one Vita.

Correct. It used to be 5 consoles but a year or so ago they changed it to screw over everyone with more than 2 consoles:(

They did it to stop account sharing.

Why not just keep the two console policy and then do it the way MS does it for more consoles? That would make more sense than screwing people that had a lot of consoles. I know if MS did that I would have been pissed since I had four 360's at one point.

It is the same as the 360 now, one designated "home" system that can play the game irregardless of being logged into that account or not. And one roaming system which you have to be logged into that account online when playing

So are you saying that MS is changing their policy with the XBOne? Currently I can log into any 360 console and download and play any of my games as long as I'm logged in with my Gamertag. And of course also connect to the internet.

PS4 User Interface video (Linked if embed fails). If anyone speaks French please translate or give us the gist!



At around 4 minutes they start playing Knack. UI comes back at 32:30. Then they seem to show some of the functions in depth and how they work in tandem with a game (Knack).

No not as far as I am aware, the 360, Xbone and PS4 are all going to the same . The PS4 policy is different from the PS3 is what I'm saying
