PlayStation 4 - Page 275

post #8221 of 15260
Wow! It won't even play 3D BDs. Sony wasn't kidding at all that this was a game console. Months ago I almost decided to wait for the PS4 to be my 3D BD player because I assumed it would support it, glad I changed my mind and went ahead and bought my Panasonic.

Also, I thought there was going to be an iPad version of the app but it is currently iPhone only. It works on the iPad but it is not formatted for the iPad. I also get an error every time I try and sign into the app on my iPhone 5.

The iPad version will come in time. As of right now, I can't even sign in properly on my Android. Brings me to the website to sign in, so I do, then it brings me back to the app. However, the app isn't recognizing I'm signed in, and keeps going to my phones web browser, then back to the app. So there are some issues with it right now. Can't wait until it's fully functional for me. By then I'll be back with Apple. biggrin.gif

I managed to sign in, and stay signed in. The app is very buggy right now, I can't even see my full trophy list.

Yeah, they have some kinks to work out for certain. With that said, it definitely looks like something I'd use quite often, especially to send messages while playing games.

Do we know if they plan on adding 3D playback? If not this is a seriously gimped device for me.

I signed in after like 10 times entering my password on my stupid phone. I have a not so friendly password. I signed into the web page and it says I have to accept the terms. Had to click that link and signed in at another page, accepted the terms, then back to the original page, sign in again.

This article says 3D bluray playback will be possible at launch with firmware update.

I will save myself that much time and put it on a usb drive for when friday rolls around I guess.
post #8232 of 15260
Thanks for the link. For some reason I couldn't find that via Google. That will definitely save me some time come launch day.

Also, my Killzone launch bundle from Amazon just entered "Preparing For Shipment" phase on Amazon and was charged to my CC. It's happening!

Pretty clear how to physically swap the hard drive for a larger capacity one. But the online PS4 manual doesn't describe any procedure to FIRST do a system backup (to a drive on the USB port) and how to restore data from that drive. That's what I've done on my PS3's, to keep all my downloaded games, save files, patches, etc. when going to a bigger drive. In fact, I'm sort of surprised that a freshly minted PS4 will even boot up if you swap the drive for a empty, possibly unformatted new drive.

Downloaded and signed into the Android app with no issues. Trophy list is buggy and not all games are showing up, but I was able to accept some friend requests from the app.

If you're referring to upgrading the drive after already playing and having game saves, my bad). tongue.gif

Here's your answer MrSniffer....

I like the iOS app, except the store area. Sony please don't have it redirect to safari! Keep in app!

+1 for Android too. Not a bad app otherwise. I did like Microsoft's Smartglass bit this looks to be at least 90% of what that was for the 360. This should get better over time.

Just downloaded the app for iOS. Working perfectly fine on my iPhone 5. Smooth, fast and efficient. Not buggy at all.
post #8240 of 15260
The app on my S3 runs a tad slow but I've got power saving/CPU throttling on. My tablet runs it great though, except only in portrait which is sideways with the attached keyboard...minor thing biggrin.gif
post #8241 of 15260
My Android phone (S1) is 3yrs old and not compatible... o well....

PS3 looks like it'll have a place in the entertainment center for a while along side it's big brother.

That actually is shocking to me, no Blu Ray 3d support? that's weak....
post #8243 of 15260
I was able to sign into the app this morning just fine. Works pretty good on my iPhone. I also agree that the store should load in app and not safari, especially since I use Chrome on my iPhone. I accepted some friend request and I'm going to send some out to folks around here.

GameFly has also shipped KZ and NBA2K14. The ball is definitely rolling now!

The app doesn't work at all on my phone. Anyway to get it to work on a landline? wink.gif

My only worry is the FAQ that links to says Bluray support, not 3D Blu Ray support. SO maybe, maybe not.

Either way 3D support is just a patch away. Lets just hope everything game related is running smoothly so they can transition into building out the features.
