It comes with Resogun if you have PS+ which is pretty much the only exclusive worth playing on PS.

I paid off my pre-order last night and Gamestop had just gotten a shipment of Killzone and controllers, so I grabbed both. I was holding both my PS3 and PS4 controllers last night and the difference is pretty big. I love the PS3 controller, but the new one made it feel like a cheap piece of plastic. Felt really good in my hand and when I get home from work I'm going to see how well it works on my PC.

Not sure how that'll work with roster moves/drafts, but that's sure exciting

My Futureshop pre-order for Killzone is showing as out of stock right now. That's probably a bad sign, and is ridiculous considering I pre-ordered in June during their E3 promotion. If I don't get it for launch I'm going to be upset, especially if the same happens with my Battlefield 4 pre-order.

When I saw the design of the bumpers and joysticks on the PS4, I had a feeling they might actually take back the best controller in consoles. I loved PS3 but the one thing I did love about 360 was the controller.

That having been said, I really hope Sony kills it this generation. They seem to be on the right path and while I want them to have competition I think they're doing things the right way so far and could easily hit a grand slam with PS4.

Guess I'll check out the gamestop around the corner since I still haven't preordered any games. Probably pick up Killzone and NBA2k14 when that hits stores.

The Gamestop I frequent up here had Knack and Killzone and they probably have Ghosts by now.

Wonder when Turtle Beach's/Tritons/Astros etc., will be available for the PS4. I don't wanna spend too much time for that mic they give you, doesn't look too great.

Turtle Beach already has the PX4 set for launch. I've been thinking about getting a pair, but I want a few reviews before I decide for sure.

Oh wow those look amazing. Little pricey though, would prefer something around the $70-$100 mark. I don't the little tuner thing at all so.

Ya, I was playing some CoD with the DS4, and I'm REALLY impressed

Any fellow Playstation gamers since the beginning?

I'm probably more pumped for launch day than any other previous system. This may be because I stupidly decided against pre-ordering the PS3 ahead of time and couldn't find a damn console for weeks, but still. PS2 launch was a pretty exciting time as well.

Knack shipped last night, and NBA 2K14 should be mailed within next few days. Then in 2014: Kingdom Hearts 3, Watch Dogs, UFC, NHL 15, MLB 14: The Show etc.. Going to be awesome.

I was a kid when the PS1 and 2 were out. My parents would get them a year or two after they came out. I remember Christmas 2001 they got my brother and I a PS2. I was playing the PS1 a few weeks before Christmas and my mom let it slip that they got a PS2. I was so mad because I had to wait to play it and it's almost the same feeling I have now.

Bought a PS3 in November 2008 and it's been going ever since. I was hoping the PS4 controller would work with GTA5 but it looks like it doesn't. I played some NHL 14 with it and it felt really good.

I remember when I got the PS1. It was Christmas, and me and my brothers wanted a PS1 so bad. We went down early to see, but it wasn't there. We were all grumpy until my Aunt brought it out, and we lost it . I remember playing Spyro as my first game. PS2 I don't remember when we got it , I just know I spent soooo many hours playing games on it, I wouldn't even want to know how much tbh. PS3 my Dad bought us for Christmas in 2007, was so pumped. Then I bought a 360 a year later so I could play with my friends, but going back to PS again. Same with my friends that I convinced.

Trine 2 as a launch game ? Cool.

The Knack pre-orders are as well. On their forums they said they are still shipping them (?) but might be slightly after the dates listed... but before launch.

The games are kind of irrelevant to me though as there's a couple of others I will probably but at launch so as long as all the shipments are within a few days of launch I don't care too much.

Apparently Future Shop won't even be shipping the PS4 on the 15th and they have over 1000 copies of KZ on backorder. What the actual ****?

My local Future Shop already has KZ in stock.. Cancelling my online pre-order right now and will go pick it up in-store tomorrow. ****.

That's why I always use Gamestop (especially for consoles, wouldn't go with anyone else). MUCH more reliable. Only time I've ever used Future Shop was for the crazy discounts they were offering a few months back on select upcoming games.

My buddy is still waiting for his COD PS3 copy from Future Shop..
