WOW. Well played!
Sony has sold more than 5.3 MILLION PS4's so far.
Its an amazing rate of uptake for a new console.
hopefully it was a mistake by JBhifi but their next shipment of PS4 was priced at $649!
Quickly taken off their FB page though, but best to ask if you were going to get one there
JBs in Perth CBD received a double shipment by mistake. 20 went to pre-orders, and 20 went on the shelf.
Well, now there's only 19...
biggest mistake they did was not doing gt6 for ps4. everyone applauded the decision saying yay, such a large user base - yet here we are 1/2 price gt6 already lol.
i have many friends, who just assumed that gt6 was on ps4, and where suprised when i told em it was on ps3.
Imagine how good it would have been if GT6 was a launch title...
Sony is selling PS4's as fast as they can make them. my guess would be they would have sold 20 million buy now if the supply was there.. Xbox One sales are due to lack of PS4's on the shelf and parents buying the machine that's available, even if its a pile of crap with half the power and costs more.
1. I want more awesome games to play, hurry up and release some!
2. I want DLNA media capability back - hurry up and make it so Sony!!
Is there a reason to buy either console right now?
Holy crap, I can't believe there's no DLNA media capability. I was definitely going to get a PS4 if I upgraded to a new console, I see no real reason to if I can't use it as a media hub as well. I might as well just build a HTPC and use steam big picture...
If you want to play games that are out on either console that's only available on said console. Otherwise, there are always cheaper options for other stuff.
Not really. If you're a PC gamer either console with gather dust right now. Both library's are pretty pathetic as they always are in the first 6-12 months. Some decent releases coming in the next couple months but mostly on PC anyway. I'd say the main reason to get one now is fanboyism and people who just like shiny new toys under their TV. I fall into the latter
1. True, I was lucky I didn't have time to play over Christmas so I've still got a backlog. Currently churning BF4, Killzone and Ass Creed right now. March is going to be awesome though.
2. Agreed. It should be coming. In the meantime, I've had success streaming from my Plex server through the browser. Followed this guide and it works great. Not as good as native Plex or DLNA support, but good enough.
I have a kickass PC, but I still really enjoy the PS4.
1. I prefer playing in front of my TV rather that in the study where my PC is.
2. The speed and ease of the PS4 is bringing the console back to consoles. It's faster to get gaming on the PS4 than it is on PC, which wasn't always the case last gen.
3. Vita integration, second screen and trophies are enough to make me prefer a game on PS4 over PC.
4. Free games on PS+
Games will cost more on PS4 than PC, though buying from the US store offsets that somewhat.
Urngh! Soo close I can taste it
Unsure if this is old news but...
Some people might be interested in the views here
I was playing Tomb Raider on my PS4 the other day and I was suprised when it went psycho. It started running at 1FPS and freezing for about 2sec then moving then freezing again skipping and jumping with corrupted sound :/
Has anyone else got TR? When you first start the game and it's showing the credits I get this black corruption that flashes on the screen. I don't know if that's a normal part of the credits or if it's my PS4 being spaz
Has anyone else had their PS4 go stupid like that? It was getting to the point where I thought I'd have to turn the PS4 off but I didn't want to as you can't just save wherever you want in TR
Sounds like a crappy bug, have you googled to see if its a known issue?
That's not right. I've played TR: DE the whole way though, I've not seen any black corruption, frame rate slowing or freezing for a period of time.
I think I had the game freeze on me once, which from memory didn't lock the console (I could still quit the game) and it was fine afterwards.
Is your PS4 running hot? Are the fans going on high?
Don't worry about quitting the game, the autosave points in TR are so frequent you'll barely have to replay much.
Check that your console is not running too hot. Otherwise that is a very strange but very rare bug.
I had a moment when I had to zipline down to some enemies, and I died on the landing and respawned further up and enemies were dead. That's some great checkpoints lol.
