I'm mainly waiting for KH3 and FFXV anyways.

don't all consoles have bad launch titles?

I want Killzone and maybe Need For Speed Rivals. I like arcadey racing games.

I do too.  It seems like every other Need for Speed game sucks though, since the main studio only makes one every two years, so the off years are another developer.  I had huge hopes for Need for Speed The Run; I was hoping it would be like a modern version of Rad Racer or Outrun.  But instead they bogged it down with section time limits that were necessary to progress, completely ruining the flow of the game IMO.

 

I think Rivals is an "off year" Need for Speed, but I have high hopes for it anyway.

 

I'm mainly an RPG player, and also like climbing games like Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia.  I'm sure PS4 will have a great new version of Uncharted.  I'm also willing to bet the Tomb Raider reboot will spawn sequels.  I'm not sure what's ahead on the RPG side (other than FFXV), but there is sure to be some great things there too.  100% chance Bethesda is working on another Elder Scrolls.  Skyrim was great; Oblivion I wanted to love but I never connected with it.

 

Like I said earlier, I'm not in a hurry but will end up with a PS4, maybe sometime in 2014.

I have NFS: The Run and the last Hot Pursuit. I actually liked The Run. It felt like a movie.

My biggest let down? Ridge racer Unbounded. Man, what a terrible excuse for a game. The level design is basically like a create a level mode ALL the time. The Run and HP are at least pretty to look at.

Still, my all time fave racing game is Burnout Revenge on the 360. What a masterpiece. I didn't like Paradise. It was confusing to get around.

I also love the drift mechanic Ridge Racers (RR6, RR7, RR and RR2 on the PSP). They're all very much the same game, but I had a lot of fun with them. The Vita Ridge Racer is a travesty. It runs worse than the PSP games. It's inexcusable.

From what I've seen of Rivals... it looks fun.

If I didn't already have a PC, then I would opt for BF4 or Ghosts. But this is terrible. Everything is a port.

12 months - you'll be upgrading your PC ($$$$) and we'll be cranking exclusive PS4 titles - it never ends. The game I want will *always* be on the other platform  ;)

Surprised ? Nah ...

Sony has confirmed that PlayStation Network in North America and Canada is suffering connection issues following the midnight launch of the PlayStation 4.

"The PlayStation Network is currently experiencing extrememely [sic] high volume, some gamers may experience some difficulty connecting," said Sony on its support site. The original post has now been removed.

"We ask for your patience," it added.

Some users attempting to connect to PlayStation Network are being met with error codes E-80E80034 and NW-31453-6.

Those affected by the errors are reporting that they are unable to download the PlayStation 4's day one update directly through the console. Those prepared to manually install the 1.50 update can fetch it from the PlayStation site and load it on to a USB stick.

The 1.50 firmware for PlayStation 4 is required to enable many of the system's features, including Remote Play with a Vita, party chat, and Blu-Ray movie support.

Still waiting on mine from UPS. I'm not surprised about PSN crashing though.

My PS4 seems to have fallen victim to the ubiquitous blue light of death (BLOD) error which has been plaguing thousands of units, apparently.  Theres a 75 page thread on Sony's official forums full of people with similar problems. 

 

Basically, I turned off the console last night and attempted to turn it on this morning, and the thing just would not do anything.  No matter what I did, it would just flash the same blue light over and over again do nothing.  After unplugging, replugging, restarting, etc for 30 minutes, eventually I heard the fan spin up to 100% for a second and the thing began to work fine, somehow.  I figured that would be the end of my problems, but an hour ago I decided to try to replace the drive with a 1tb seagate, since its an easy hardware swap.

 

Well, after taking out the original drive and attempting to boot the new one into safe mode, it appears my ps4's recovery is completely corrupted, as it just flashes a blue light twice and will not boot to safe mode.  It seems that I was shipped a ps4 either without a recovery partition or a corrupted one, so I cannot even get to the menu to initialize the new drive.  To make things even more fun, when I tried to put the original drive back in and reboot, it now is stuck in the blue light of death again. 

 

Basically I have to return this one to amazon and hope for the best with the next one... I've already messed around with a few others that friends have received and none have the problems mine seems to have.  Just a forewarning that you might have problems with your brand new ps4s at this point in time... hopefully the hardware flaws will be fixed soon on a wider scale.

 

And for those who are interested, here's the original thread from the Sony forums:

I am sorry for your problems :/

But to put it into perspective, we are hopefully talking about like 10.000/1.5 mil shipped, so 7.5% roughly, right?

It's not a small number but in comparison to the RROD, which had a failure rate between 33% and 50%, it's still within boundaries.

The first PS3s had a similar failure rate, me thinks.

Regardless, this number will get only better and there are gonna be less and less units with problems once Sony discovers the culprit.

Again, sorry for your loss though!

Maybe not, I've seen nasty rumors like this one popping up on the net about a certain factory hiring unpaid, forced college interns over the summer... the whole thing is quite interesting, though I don't believe this information has been definitely confirmed or not.  Either way, mine was made in that factory in August :(  Amazon has already agreed to replace it when more stock comes in, so it's just a waiting game from here.  It was fun for the 3 hours it worked though!

Wow...

post #448 of 1019

So I was able to get my system exchanged at the sony store for a brand new one that worked... amazon had put me on a waiting list, but sony really came through on this one.  They said that they are primarily replacing pre-order ps4s at the moment that have the problem, and that most of the units they've seen have been from either amazon or gamestop, produced during that particular time period.  Interestingly, I pulled out the hard drive on the new one they gave me and it was a 500gb HGST (Hitachi) rather than a 500gb seagate labelled Samsung.  Still made in the same factory, and the date says Sept 2013, but the different hard drive is encouraging.  I think I may be set this time. 

 

It was a bit annoying that I was one of the small number affected by the issues, but Sony took care of it without too much of a hassle.

Actually the percentage numbers are less than 1% if using your data, which is the failure percentage estimated by Sony after launch. This is actually a very good number for a console launch and for any type of electronics. Now to the question, I got a PS4 because the like exclusive games attached to Sony consoles more than the ones on Microsoft's side. I think that is the main thing you should ask yourself when deciding between these two.

Yes, precisely.
Likewise to a big extent.
Though I do like Halo, the Sony exclusives easily outweighs it for me.
