    Ps4

    Sooooo sony's new console was 'announced' but not unveiled at the press conference on the 20th at new york.

    Showed us a tonne of games, some of the things the new console can/might do, the new controller. I'm keen as hell. Always enjoy a good game. Any thoughts anyone..if you manage to pry those capa's away from your hands from time to time and get the geek on! :P

    Here's gamespot's PS4 section for any news thus far

    Really excited about this. At first the controller wasn't to my liking, but finding out they've out a rear touch panel on the back makes it all the more interesting.

    The games/graphics look absolutely amazing. Really pleased with the direction Sony are taking, I was a little miffed that a few companies (Square Enix for example) didn't show us another trailer, but oh well, can't win them all! It looks like one heft machine.

    The only thing I can see as a downfall is the lack of PS3 backwards compatibility. Kind of annoying, as it was from PS3 to PS2, so hopefully they have a free way of keeping your PS3 games and putting them onto the PS4. Another issue would be the price. I can't see being less than 300 but hopefully it will be around that though.

    I'm more of an Xbox guy myself, not owned a PS2/3 (did own a PS1, glorious!). Not had much time to play games lately anyway.

    I do own a PS Vita though and I have to say, rear touch pad is mostly kind of shit. You have to more careful where you grab the controller and also you can't see where you're touching until after you've tapped it so it's not really very fluid. And not having backwards compatibility is a pretty terrible decision. Means there's no reason to really buy the console until it actually has a decent library of games. >_>

    But again, I'm more of an xbox guy anyway so I don't really see myself buying the PS4 regardless.

    haha I find the $400 price tag pretty hard to resist.

  8. I had both systems on pre-order, as I'm a huge fan of Dead Rising and a devoted XBOX 360 user. However, I just couldn't look past Microsoft's restrictions and the subsequent backpedaling on this issue. I canceled my XBOne preorder and will be sticking with PS4.

    Did anyone pick up their pre-order? Apparently some of the units are having issues...as to be expected lol.

  10. I got my preorder from Amazon on Friday and it had the blue light of death. I've already requested a refund and will be sending it back tomorrow. I'd advise holding off on buying a PS4 right now, as the failure rate appears to be a lot higher than Sony admits.
