PlayStation 4 - Page 258

post #7711 of 15149
32 yr old kid here lol. Got PS4 and KZ4 preordered from GameStop. On the 10th they are having some get together at my local store. Think those who preordered and paid get a receipt or something so on midnite the 15th things go quicker but idk I will see.

What is that, about $54k worth of PS4? Drool is right.

Tear down of the PS4, pretty simple look and that fan and heat sink is more then sufficient, the way it pishes everything out the door.

Can you spot the power brick...










Now Compare that to the XB1 design. Really shows off who is the hardware designer..

Well to be fair I think we all know MS probably over designed the One as a way to make sure there's no chance at a RRoD again. Still yes its impressive what Sony has been able to do with getting their system into such a small package. I don't think anyone here disagrees that Sony is better at designing hardware. It's in their DNA after all.

As for the reminiscing session we seem to have going, I'll chime in. I'm 36 and I remember all three previous PS launches. I preordered my PSX and PS2 from the same Babbages at a local mall (the mall is no longer around). Walked in around the line both times, had people offer me money for each which I ignored, and walked out. Took maybe 10 minutes each time. The PS2 I had to wait until after work to play though as I came on my lunch. I remember opening it in the car in the parking lot and staring in amazement at how it looked. The PS3 I didn't pre-order because I won one at work in a contest. Apparently our sales dept. had a contact at Sony and secured a few for launch and I was lucky enough to win one. I honestly forget what the contest was for now. I just remember being annoyed when I got home because I had a 34" CRT HDTV at the time and the PS3 forced my game I got with it (Motorstorm) into 480p. It definitely hastened my desire to get a new tv.

Good god man, post some info with that. This has been one thing they've been too quiet about worrying people.

Wow, the fan design actually looks improved over the PS3 slim and super slim designs. Can't wait for Benheck to tear into one and comment on it. (He loves their cooling designs)

51 year old gamer here without any launch stories, didn't start playing till just a few years ago. With a wife and 2 older girls it gives me a place to go and hide.

It varies from game to game, but the rule of thumb is that if a game is cross-buy, it shares trophy lists, and if it's not, it has separate lists. Of course, there are exceptions, like earlier cross buy games with two lists and games like Dragon's Crown that aren't cross-buy, but share one list. Some games, like Rayman Origins and Legends, have totally different lists even if they're the same game.

My best launch story was for the PS2. Wen to wal-mart at 6pm on day before launch. Stood 3rd in line at the electronics department until midnight. By then about 300 people had showed up. Instead of handing the consoles to the people going down hte line, they announced over the PA, please come to the tire center to receive vouchers to pick up a PS2. Of cource that started a stampede of 300 people sprinting to the tire center and because I was front of the line I was farthest away from the tire center. People were pushing buggies in front of people, shoving, a girl got trampled. Insane. Needless to say I didn't get my console there.

Got up at 6am the next morning, stood in line at a kmart with about 10 other people and I was 6th and got the last console. They even came out an hour before the store opened to hand out the vouchers so we could go sit in our cars where it was warm and people that weren't getting consoles could try somewhere else.

I'm fine with those apps at launch because the 3 I care most about are there; Netflix, Vudu and Amazon. I'd love for GameTrailers to add there app to the PS4 at some point, I used there app a lot on the 360.


I don't really have any launch stories. I had to save my own money for a N64 and it was well after launch when I bought it. Ended up not liking it because the games were so freaking expensive (some new ones were $80 back then) so, I traded it in for a PSX and never looked back. The original XBox was a Christmas gift as was the PS2 but, I had to hunt down the PS2 myself. I lived in Orlando at the time and my sister was visiting. We were both about to leave to go home to Alabama for the holidays and we had still not had any luck in finding a PS2. My sister had actually spent the days prior camping out at a GameStop every morning until there shipment came but, they never got one in.

So, the night before we are leaving I called around to every GS and EB Games in Orlando and finally found one, the store said that they would only hold it for 20 minutes. I lived about 20 minutes away. I drove to that mall in record time, was there in about 10 minutes. Ran into the mall, to where I thought the EB games was but, it was a GameStop. Asked the GS employee where EB Games was and he asked why? Told him they were holding a PS2 for me but for only about 8 more minutes. He then started to mess around with me and was not telling me the location of the other store. I laughed it off and was about to leave when he told another employee to go to the back and grab a PS2. I think he sold me someone's pre-order just to steal a sell from EB Games. After it was paid for (with my parent's money) my sister took it from me and said it was a Christmas gift and I could have it in a week. That wait was one of the longest weeks ever, until now I think.

For the 360, I had it pre-ordered at a GS and just waited in line at midnight, no problems or drama. The store did have pizza and drinks for everyone in line, it was actually a fun evening.

The only system I bought at launch was the Wii, it was a long and cold night....but it was still a blast just hanging out with all the Nintendo fans. Now I'm just happy enough to have the deliver it to my doorstep.

Still no HBO Go and I want these systems to get the Max Go and ShoAnytime Apps so I can see my Strike Back and Banshee.

I'm content to wait until the afternoon to get my PS4... for now, I'm sure that my opinion will change come the 15th. UPS had better not fail me!

23 blade fan and a beast of a heat sink, should be cooled nicely, PS3 are between 15-19 blade fans so should move much more heat, also looks like there is more free space than I expected, Looks like You should be able to make an external HDD your internal HDD pretty easily (3.5 inch caddy holding say a 4TB HDD with sata extender)

Not sure if there's enough space there, but it'll be interesting to see what the modders come up with. There's a lot in the teardown compared to say the XBone, but it looks much better than the PS3 which I had to do three times on a YLOD Phat.

HDD Tray:

Looks to me 12mm drives will easily fit. 3.5.. Maybe with modding.

Edit: actually, 7mm drive there? Some are saying that.

Benheck will probably make a digital only laptop with a massive HDD, leaving the disc drive out.

"It would be very inconvenient for our customers if there was a separate power supply unit, so we incorporate it into the body."

Design philosophy: clean, organized, and made of a piece. Also, anyone notice how the GDDR5 is arranged around the CPU? Wonder if it needs to be symmetrical or that's just another elegant solution.

Very happy have that info about the streaming services for launch. I figured they'd be there eventually but am very glad the primary ones will all be there at launch, save HBOgo.

Looks like a bitch to replace the hard disk. You have to break seals and remove cases and layers within the case...

He did it late, but I think the glossy part comes off without removing any screws. There's a German website that showed the HDD tray out with the console still together. At least I hope you don't have to take it apart...

I'm have DirecTV so HBOGo isn't a big deal to me since DirecTV users can't use it anyway.

I love it when I open a computer or laptop up at work and it has a very well thought out design. PS4 looks to fit that bill perfectly, that's a beautiful looking machine, inside and out. The Xbox One on the other hand, looks like someone just threw a board, fan and a drive in a box and yelled done. I'm sure much more thought went into it then that, I'm just saying that compared to the inside of the PS4, the Xbox One is a lot less elegant. In the end, as long as the things work it makes little difference what they look like on the inside but, for now, I'm geeking out over the look of the pS4.

Nah, this was a complete tear down, so he had to get at screws for everything else.

The top left of the case can be removed/slid off and it's only 1 screw to remove the HDD chassis:

Just got an email last night, I have to dock Sony marketing on this one.
Because clearly the countdown began June 10th.

Another nice video here with Mark Cerny (and a couple others) talking about the hardware. I love hearing Cerny talk about the PS4, he's so passionate about it which just makes me even more excited to play it.

I'm not so sure I'd ask "Are you prepared for your perfect day?". That's a lot to live up to. Let's hope PSN can handle it.

Direct TV does work. I used it and my parents currently use it with their 360s.

Every time I watch a Cerny video it makes me chuckle. He really reminds me of Dana Carvey as "Church Lady."
