    I can only afford to get the one year on Black Friday, however it is an awesome deal getting it $20 off, hence why I didn't bother getting the year subscription today to get the $10 bonus for getting it on day one.

    Overall I am loving the PS4 so far! Graphics are insane...Resogun is amazing for a free game in HD 1080p. Moving between game and menu is seamless and fast. I wish I knew how to delete messages as group....aif anyone knows please comment! I hope we can have themes soon. I would love to leave more details but I need to get back to gaming...... if you don't have one yet get one, you wont be disappointed.

    The streaming feature is Doom's favorite by far. Just gotta wait till they release a fighter in the VS series and I'll be set. Or at worst another Street Fighter.

    I agree with most of what's been said here - I would like the ability to customize the color of the UI but apart from that I feel like there's too much going on for full custom themes to really work. But man, that thing works and works fast! Going in and out of games, back to messages, trophies, etc, are all 100 times faster than ps3 and even faster than on the Vita.

    My only minor complaint so far is with the fan/heat. It's nowhere near as hot or loud as the original ps3, but the fan does run constantly when playing games and is noticeable depending on what's going on in the game. Heat-wise, it's probably slightly hotter than my current ps3 (especially in the back), which is one of the last matte black ones (right before they released the super-slim), but not extremely so. That kind of makes me wonder why the fan is always running because the fan in my ps3 never runs.

    I have a PS4 and I love it so far. I feel like the UI is greatly improved and cleared up versus the PS3 UI. I got used to the PS3 UI, but the new one is so much cleaner and simple to use, it's beautiful. I love the DualShock 4 as well. Great controller in every regard. The applications snap open almost instantly. Trophies sync incredibly fast, although not quite as fast as on the Vita. I absolutely love the way it handles downloads and installs now versus on the PS3. It populates a list of all the downloads and installs everything once they're downloaded. All this happens in the background too. No need to click on the "bubble" and wait for the installation any more! So far I can't think of a single complaint.

    My trophies sync as quick on the PS4 as it does my Vita, however, both are still twice as fast as my PS3. The only complaint I have had so far is how long it took to install update 1.50.

    Amazing system and extremely fast. It is awesome to synch your trophies in less than 10 seconds. I always dreaded doing it on the PS3 as you never knew how long it would take as it would seem to snag on a certain percentage and stay there for some time.

    I love my PS4! I would agree with how fast it loads and syncs trophies. I'm very pleased.

    Also, I like the new controller layout, but my thumbs do tend to slip off the sticks, and I could use some larger R1 and L1 triggers. I have also noticed that my R1 trigger tends to stick a bit. Maybe it just needs to be broken in more. We'll have to see.

    I am still a bit paranoid of it overheating, so I keep a fan pointed directly at it when I'm playing. I did game for 7 hours with COD: Ghost and it was pretty cool.

    I can't wait for some new themes and avatars to customize my XMB.

    Knacks hard difficulty is artificial difficulty (one hit kills 99% of the time) but yea it's hard.


    Also Killzone shadow fall is the first killzone game i actually liked. Never expected "Cold war in space" to be interesting. got boring when you go back to helgan though.

    I don't like the feel of the new controller. It holds my wrists at a downward angle and it bugs the nerves in my wrist and forearms and I don't like the L1 and R1 buttons because seeing my hand is angled downwards it makes it hard to get to them. I also don't like the analog sticks. The rubber indents feel cheap along with the sticks that feel like they will snap if I push a little to hard. I'm hoping Sony will release a controller just like the dualshock 3 but I know they won't. My 9 year old son he cannot use the new controller whatsoever. I guess Sony's PS4 isn't entirely for gamers it's for gamers who can use the new controller.

    Why do gamers always have to be so dramatic? That sentence alone made your post go from looking like a valid complaint to making you seem like a whiny drama queen.

    Anyway, I'm sure there will be third party controllers soon enough that will be more like either the DS3 or 360 controller so you probably won't have to deal with the DS4 for a whole lot longer.

    Personally though, I love the new controller. The DS3 was my favorite last generation but I think this one is a big step up in terms of comfort. The sticks feel better, the triggers feel a whole lot better (I actually enjoy using L2 and R2 for shooters now, I think it feels great) and it has a little more weight to it so it just feels better in my hand. My only complaint do far is the short battery life but since it can be charged while the PS4 is in standoff mode it isn't a big deal to me at all.

    It sucks you can't enjoy the PS4 as much as possible because you don't like the DS4 but hopefully really soon there will be a third party controller that will suit your needs.

    You call me whiny so I'll call you sweetheart. OK, sweetheart I wasn't whining for me I was whining for my 8 year old son who cannot play Knack which was SONY's more child friendly game but I guess it's not and I don't own a PS4 until some good games come out and a better controller for kids.
