I never completed halo 4..i thought it was a pile of crap..master chief looked good in the cut scenes though..halo 1 was good on the xbox because it was something new.. the soldiers talked and the drop ships looked good when they came in..games like battlefield 3 were much better to play with friends online than halo..i hope they do something with the new halo games and bring something knew to them..like a free roaming online universe that you can play with friends..i haven't made up my mind on which console I am getting yet..just waiting..i just wish dark souls 2 was released at Christmas, I was thinking of getting the ouya while I wait, but no optical out or rca just hdmi and my monitor hasn't got any speakers.. bf4 premium will have to do me!

Hey,

 

I think the Xbox One will be a great system, it just does not appeal to me. I don't need a set-top box nor do I need another next gen system. The Xbox exclusives don't really appeal to me. I always felt that Halo and Fable were overhyped for what they are, BUT I did enjoy Halo 1 and 2 on the original Xbox.

 

I purchased the PS4 on launch and have been loving it. While not as feature rich as the Xbox One, it makes up for it with a more robust GPU and better RAM. I've always been more on the Sony side of things, but it comes down to preferences. 

 

I'll say if you want all the features of the Xbox One, go for it. It's a multimedia machine. The PS4 is more bare bones but offers a better gamer focussed experience (so far). Ones not better than the the other but rather it's what they offer that should persuade you.

You didn't have any problems with your PS4 launch edition? or you think that the problems some guys are facing is related to "tv compatibility"? it is always good to have an opinion from real users.

Mine is flawless. No compatibility issues, no overheating or blue light of death, etc.

I'd assume the problematic consoles were only some of the Amazon's batch. I'd assume one of the 1st batches were simply not made correctly and that the problem won't happen in the future again. We are looking at 5 -10% max though.

My Amazon PS4 did't have any issues either. The only problem I had was a credit card error but it was corrected a few days later.

Yeah I know. I'd say maybe 1/4 of them?
OT - both units shipped over 1 mill units.
The difference is Sony did only in America, Microsoft did worldwide.
Which most likely mean that Sony slightly outsold MS in America alone.
Once PS4 launches next Friday in Europe and elsewhere... Well, I'd assume the numbers will tip significantly in Sony's favor.
I do think though that Sony did so much right that they deserve it.
Smaller box, cheaper, more powerful, not centered round America only, releasing worldwide, listening to feedback and adding requested stuff post launch,...
Oh and Shuhei Yoshida actually acts like a human being, the CEO, a gamer and?! He also feels honest, like Mark Cerny. I also like Andrew House and Kaz Hirai xD
Microsoft's management on the other hand makes me feel intimated and scared 0_0 ...

1/4th?! Dude, that would be a huge number... Sony wouldn't be selling anywhere near as many as they did if they had that many problems.

Fine, then it was less! Whatever equals to 5% (50K units)
I dunno! xD

Min is from Amazon and works fine. The only issue I have is the network connection gets iffy but a Sony rep said that it was a PSN issue. I'll do an internet connection test, get 22Mbps download speed, then maybe a couple hours later it'll drop to under 1Mbps.. I've tried wired and wifi and while wired yields faster speeds (28Mbps), I'm fine with wireless as my router and modem is a few rooms away. It's just odd though.

 

I was playing Battlefield 4 earlier and it ran great, now I'am get a ton of lag and jittering. It's annoying. On my days off I would like to play.. Odly enough the PSN and internet on my PS3 work fine and I get a steady 30Mbps.

 

Also MLE, the videos you uploaded from your PS4 do not work at all. I click on them from Whats New and they go to play and nothing happens..

I think from what I've read is that some of the actual PS4s that were labeled "launch editions" from a Amazon are the ones having issues. All other "standard editions" that still shipped on day one have not been reporting many issues.

I got lucky and got mine from Walmart on launch night after canceling my Amazon pre order like a dummy. Still, that preorder was a launch edition so I may have just avoided some heartache.

I may also suggest that all of you witg PS4s get the accidental protection program for $60. A 3 year warranty with accidents included on a launch console is a must buy for that price, IMO.

Yeah, I was one of the people who received a dreaded BLOD launch edition from Amazon.  When I went to exchange my system at the nearest Sony retail store on monday, they had told me they processed about 180 exchanges that day in that one location, and the majority of them had come from amazon, with a few from gamestop.  Of course they said that no PS4s sold directly by Sony had issues, but who knows if that's the truth (it was a sony store after all). 

 

Even if I hadn't went ahead and done that, Amazon sent out a replacement console on wednesday which I promptly cancelled.  It seems that the problem was that amazon simply didn't have any replacement stock at the time, which is understandable given the situation.  I don't think there was any reason for them to anticipate that a majority of the "launch edition" batch would be damaged in some way.  Unfortunately, it seems that most of the defective units have been isolated to those put together in a certain factory between certain dates, so its completely possible that all of these "launch edition" systems are compromised (there was a lot of speculation about this). 

 

Either way, even if there was no Sony store anywhere within driving distance, Amazon would have eventually replaced the console anyway.  To be fair though, I would have been much angrier to be without it for a week if I wasn't primarily a PC gamer.

Where did you look for these videos? I think they don't work because I deleted them all? the ones I sent to facebook work just fine...

I was trying to view them on the PS4 directly. 

 

Also is anyone have speed issues with the network? I have 50Mbps internet speeds and I normally get 22Mbps on the PS4, but it randomly drops to 1Mbps. It's been stuck at around 2Mbps for the last four hours and I can't play online because of severe lag. I've tried port forwarding, DMZ... but nothing helps. Even releasing the IP did nothing nor did a reboot of my router or modem.
