    Thoughts on the console (for those who have it right now)?

    I don't have a Ps4 but I want to get as many initial impressions as possible on the console. For those on this site who have obtained one, what do you think?

    So far so good over here. Going into the store is pretty much instant and when you first look at your trophies it doesnt take over an hour to sync them all, theyre just there after you sign into PSN. Last night it was impossible for me to sign into PSN but that kind of makes sense and today its fine. It runs a little warmer than my 320GB PS3 but I think it should be fine. Hopefully they make a keypad and a Blu Ray remote soon and they need a YouTube app ASAP. I still need to play with all the settings but other than that its going pretty smooth...

    People use what they want to use, some people don't own a PC you know.

    Be considerate of other peoples situations that you might not know about, instead of telling them to get a effin life.

    On topic though, I will edit this post with my thoughts when I get my console.

    I posted this on another site I frequent so I may as well post here too.

    There are plenty of review sites that are readying their PS4 reviews but I'd like this thread to be for those of us who have the system to share our thoughts and opinions on the system. Things we like, things we don't like, that kind of thing.

    First off, things I like.



    The system is absolutely gorgeous and my bad picture nor others on the internet do it justice. I always thought the launch PlayStation 3 was a very good looking system but I think this one takes the cake. It just looks like a high end piece of hardware and I love the LED that runs between the glassy and matte part of the system, it looks very good when the system is on.



    I love, love fucking love the DualShock 4! Seriously, it is the best controller I have ever used, bar none. I always liked the DualShock controllers and they were always a personal favorite but I don't think I can go back to a DualShock 3 after this. The DS4 is bigger, slightly heavier and has a few subtle changes that make it an absolute joy to hold in your hands. The speaker is actually very cool too. I was playing Killzone: Shadow Fall and picked up an audio log and it automatically started playing through the DS4 speaker. It was surprisingly high quality and honestly added to the experience instead of feeling like a gimmick. The touchpad seems like it can be very useful too.

    The UI is also absolutely gorgeous and extremely fast. For you trophy hunters out there no need to worry about syncing trophies anymore. I have a level 16 account with a couple thousand trophies (2700 or so) and the first sync to view my trophies took maybe 2 seconds. On PS3 it could have taken potentially hours so this is a great thing. Opening apps is extremely fast, the PSN store is very high speed and everything just looks great. It is pretty much just like the XMB but an evolution of it. If I can find a good video of someone showing it I'll add it. Rest assured, it is nothing like the 360 UI which has ads everywhere and it very clunky, I originally thought it would be like that but it isn't even close. I adore the UI.

    The bad...

    The console only has two USB ports. I know I'll need more than 2 USB ports. My racing wheel and shifter take two ports alone so my headset has nowhere to be plugged in. Luckily it won't matter until a Gran Turismo is released for the system but still, they could've added more ports. The console apparently wobbles? I don't know though, I don't press down on the corner of my console while I game so I can't confirm that. There is no awesome start up sound. The PlayStation, PS2 and PS3 all had awesome start up music when you boot up the system, this doesn't. There is no MP3 support as of right now but I don't listen to music on my consoles so it isn't a big deal for me.

    If it seems like I'm grasping at straws it is because I am. The system is extremely good and I can't find anything I consider a system breaking fault. It is gorgeous, fast, has the best controller of all time and is fairly cheap when you consider what you get. It has been a while since I've been blown away by graphics but Killzone did it for me. Just the quality of the textures while playing it something amazing and I haven't seen PC games that look this good. People may say the PS4 is a "low end PC" but this low end PC is kicking the shit out of just about everything out there.


    I'll post more later when I have more time with the system but the first few hours are very positive. There is honestly nothing I have found to complain about and I'm having an absolute blast with the system. I'll be trying to hook up my Astro A50's today to see if I can get at least the ausio to work, I really don't care all that much about the chat right now.

    Not from PS3 but you can see people playing PS4 from Vita. Do people playing Vita appear on PS4?.

    Only played Killzone so far, and it looks absolutely beautiful! AC4/BF4 took about 4 hours to download, yet I was also downloading Contrast, Warframe, Resogun, Flower, and Blacklight Retribution. All are installed now. Yay!

    I love it. The only thing is BF4 keeps crashing, but I don't think that's a Sony problem.

    I didnt try the + one cause they said its for new members only and I dont want Music Unlimited, so Im not gonna bother with the trial. I tried to see if the 7 days of + with Kill Zone would stack and it says the code is invalid. I would try to call Sony if it was 30 days and I knew it would stack, but I dont care to go through the trouble for 7 days. Especially since I dont know if it will stack...

    If you are currently subscribed to PS+ or Music Unlimited, they will not work for you. You have to wait until the subscription expires and then can use the codes.

    It's only if you're not a current member. I've never been able to get trials to stack.
