These are just the 201s, they shouldn't demand much of anything. I still need to experiment with the various settings and volume levels to find the sweet spot.

Or tap the eject button on the console, it's the little vertical bar under the power button.

PSN finally let me on and it asked me to update a few things in my profile before continuing. It did that fine but now it's stuck on "please wait". Been that way for about 15 mins. Can't go back and the PS button is a no go either. Anyone have advice on what I should do? Just let it go? I don't want to do anything that would jeopardize the unit. Thanks.

DCUO looks exactly the same as on the PS3; just FYI for those interested. The DS4 lights up in different colors constantly due to proximity chat I suppose. Was very annoying.

Man, I just disagree with that statement. Is there room for improvement in the UI, definitley but I like it better the the 360 UI. I was never a fan of the metro interface and hated the ads everywhere. The PS3 and 360 UI's improved over the years and the features improved as well, I have no doubt that this will happen with the PS4. It's already started with the addition of MP3 and DLNA in a coming update.

But this has been my favorite console launch ever so far because the games I've played have been a lot of fun. I don't think this is a weak launch at all.

I can't even see my light bar when I'm playing, which is my complaint, what's the point in games using it when I can't even see it.

What games have demos? I can't find a store category for demos.

Trine 2 does, found that out just going into it to check out the 3D info. Downloading now.

My local store had 90 of them this morning. Must have been a re-stock. No line up. I didn't bother getting one. I only want to play Killzone and there are no other games that interest me right now for launch titles.
Funny thing is I am an Xbox gamer for the most part but none of the Xbox titles interest me either. Not paying $500 for the One.

I think the only reason I was tempted to get a PS4 was due to getting caught up in the launch day excitement....

If its stable on that screen, then reinstall the OS from a USB.

thanks. It did not work. What did work was going into Walmart and exchanging it!

Lets see how long this one lasts. I think the other one had more then one issue. The hard drive sounded like it was dying, and no fans spinning

Played Killzone for many hours in the dark last night and the light bar made a cool effect in lighting up my fingertips.

I posted this in he BF4 thread as well:

So if anyone is interested or knows anyone that may be Interested, I am most likely going to sell my ps4 with a disc copy of BF4 in the next couple days. I would be willing to let go for $500 shipped. Full disclosure, I did use the $10 psn credit.

System works great, firmware updated no problem, bought with credit a gamestop and would rather convert that credit to cash. PM me if interested.

Could someone that I'm friends with check something for me next time they are on there PS4? When I sign in it shows me my real name instead of my PSN ID, even in the "What's New" section, but I have the privacy settings set to only show my PSN ID. I just want to make sure I have the settings right and only my PSN ID is displayed to the world. Also, do y'all see my FB pic (Trek Minions) or the PSN avatar (retro ship)? Just curious, thanks.

This is what was happening to me all last night. i just waited it out and then was able to browse the PSN store just before I went to bed and started a download.

When playing online games on the PS3, my background downloads would pause so as not to take up my internet bandwith. With the PS4 it looks like the background downloads keep downloading when playing online games. While playing KZ:SF online, both Resogun and Contrast seemed to keep downloading. Is this the case? Is there a way to manually pause the download like on PS3? Thanks!

I had to ask the same thing last night. Kind of annoying to see your real name all over the UI.

Solid experience so far. Console software bells and whistles are not there, and the patching process is rough -- but overall, for anyone who has experience with console launches, this is pretty good. Need more games!

Just a heads up about Warframe; when the game starts it freezes the whole system during a game update. Froze at 6%, which is what other's are reporting too. I had to restart in safe mode, tried it again, and it froze at 14%. So maybe steer clear of that game until the next patch.

Thanks. I figured out if I held down the ps button it allowed me to safely shut down the system. Then I was able to get in. I'm new to playstation so I'm still learning all if the tricks/buttons.

Delete and redownload. Second go worked fine for me. Decent game. May play more when I get bored with the other stuff.

No, thats my point. I ejected the disk without doing it through the menu and it hung up on me.

For the people in Amazon orlando distribution area what is your manufacturer Location and date. Just curious since I haven't seen any HW issues in that area.

The Last of Us footage was shown in the PS4 launch trailer! Go to about 2:20, the Ellie/Riley DLC is shown.

I usually never do this, but I'm going to add the extra 2 year protection plan on this thing. Probably a waste of money, but the peace of mind outweighs that for me.

And that they do. BF4 is like seeing the Apocalypse coming right at you when compared to BF on PS3.

That said the 900P instead of 1080P is noticeable to these eyes on my 70", but once you're in the thick of a battle you stop thinking about the very slight blur from being upscaled. Killzone seems to be everything I wanted from a FPS, but there's some weird audio choices vs past games, and the HUD/Text is a bit too small for the 1080P generation IMO. Really clean IQ, just hard to read objectives / accolades, ect.

Yeah, there's some options that need to be put in there, and a lot of of things need organization options (groups for friends / groups for apps / games / ect), but the top XMB itself I'm liking. It's still intuitive and easy to get around.

The biggest issue seems to be the bottom media bar and how nothing is sorted yet, its just kinda thrown up there. My guess? They ran out of time and polished the hell out of what they had. The PS3 XMB wasn't actually finished when they launched either from what I remember, but it was a great base to build off off. This design seems in that vein.

How do you add more profiles ?


I must be blind because I can't seem to find an option for adding additional profiles.

Hold the PS button on the controller > Log out of PS4

Hit the button to reconnect and add a new user.


I also think that whenever a additional controller is synced it asks you which profile to use for that controller (sign in option) or to make a new one.

I can confirm for both that I only see your PSN ID.

@rolltide, I'll have to login again, but not sure what pic is shown.
