I'm keeping my PS3 but for ppl that aren't, it seems like a good deal
Now I wish I had my extra PS3 with me

If it hasn't been posted yet, PS4 will support 3D Blu-ray movies and 3D games right off the bat. Xbox One will not.

Wondering the same thing, I know some people say turtle beaches aren't that great, they recommend the astro something headsets. I'll probably wait for some reviews.

Come with it seems a bit misleading as does the entire article.

Quote:
PS4 will definitely come with both 3D Blu-ray playback (requires the 1.50 firmware update and then a one-time activation) and 3D gameplay (albeit a current lack of 3D titles). And while there's no 4K output for games just yet, the Japanese giant is considering adding support for 4K still images and video to the console, as mentioned in its lengthy FAQ. Not that any of this is going to deter the hardcore gamers, anyway.

EDIT. I'm not sure whether I am allowed to post that link or not. Thought it might be helpful to some.

Do the day one update and the feature is supported.

Turtlebeach is releasing the PX4 to coincide with PS4 launch. It's one I'm looking at, though its somewhat pricey and there aren't really any reviews out for it yet.

So I already have a PS4 ordered on Amazon that said it's coming Monday, and just found out I don't have morning class Friday. I'm tempted to go to midnight launch... Is there somewhere where I can check which stores are doing it and how many consoles they'll have ?

You could give it a shot, but it's highly unlikely you'll be able to get one

The only stores i'm sure on are Futureshops.

They have a few stores across Canada with 250 extra (for midnight launches... but really there's like 5 in Canada)... then ALL the other futureshops in Canada have 25 extra for 8 AM launches on Friday.

I MIGHT do a day-one launch as well similar to the 360 one I did years ago but will try Superstore like I did then. Am going to check tomorrow with them on their stock because they open earlier than Futureshop (6-7AM depending on the store) and are usually not as busy.

Something I just randomly thought of with PS4 on the way. Remember the massive failure that was Playstation Home? Man oh man the hype for that was through the roof. Do people still actually use it? It was a neat idea, I suppose and I actually bought into the hype for some strange reason, but really turned out to be awful, IMO. Spending real money to buy virtual clothes and living spaces, holding virtual parties..not my kind of thing.

I wonder if Sony plans to carry Home over to PS4?

What should I get for my free game from Amazon?

BF4 or AC?

Already pre-ordered Killzone, Madden, and NBA 2K14.

Wow, that Amazon promotion almost screwed me over AC4 was already pre-ordered and was just preparing to ship now when I came upon this thread, checked my e-mail, and saw the code. I hate the other three sports games, so I had to quickly cancel my AC4 order and put a new one in with BF4. Thanks for mentioning it

Tough one.

If you really want another online shooter then BF4 (obviously).

If you want it to be a bit more of an 'all-encompasing' line-up AC4 is more open world/3rd party action... + boats and pirates.

I'd probably go AC4 in your case, unless you're a massive FPS player.

I just got an email from Amazon about a buy one get one deal. Can anyone explain this to me?

I'm guessing it's like Targets buy 2 get one free.

Pretty much, you get the code for pre-ordering any game, and then you can turn around and buy any two of those 5 games (AC4, BF4, Madden, NBA2k14, or FIFA 14), and use the code at checkout and one will be free.

What happens if I already pre-ordered 2 games? Can I add a game and get it for free?

Depends on if one of those two games you pre-ordered is one of the 5 titles mentioned, you might be able to talk Amazon into giving it to you, though I went the easy route and cancelled and re-ordered. If the two titles you pre-ordered don't contain one of those 5, then no you have to order one of those 5 and you get another one of those 5 for free.

I was going to be happy with just AC4 and Killzone. I am more of a PC FPS player, but I'll take BF4 for free anyday, just like BF3 for free on PS+ Yay, free stuff!

I got no code from Amazon, yet... but I think I know why. I got it using my brother's account since has Prime, I'll ask him. It's going to most likely be under his email.

I pre-ordered none of those games. I want the free one to be Need for Speed.

Hah, I did too. I looked for that because I am on the fence about NFS. It looks decent, but not as good as past ones, so I figured I would wait for it to drop in price in like a year or so, but I'd take it for free for sure More so than BF4, which I probably wasn't going to even buy on the PC. Can't beat free though, it trumps all arguments against

I think I am actually just going to cancel my Killzone order and apply the code to it when ordering it again.

I think it's only for select games. Don't do that.
