It depends. What I would do is wait to see what the Ebay prices look like. I've heard some people have already sold pre-orders for about $600 ... but i've also heard that Sony has sent huge amount of consoles out... so i'm not sure what supply demand will be like.

Also, on the Futureshop issues, I just got Knack... fastest i've ever got an order from Futureshop. Last night it shipped at Midnight, got 10 mins ago.

I wished I lived in the states( not really) I would just buy taco bell for a week straight to win, and throw it out instead of eating it of course.

On the right is the PS4, and it's amazing how sweet, compact and well designed it is. Xbox's motherboard looks like a circuit mess.

Considering how awesome PS+ is, it's pretty much moot. I think people should have PS+ because it gives such an amazing value, especially with all the free games. If we get a WAY WAY better online service for PS4 than we did on the PS3, I'm all for paying for the online.

Well on the PS3, I play online 3-4 times a year only, lol (FIFA)

And I've never been interested in a PS+ account

Considering basically all (or almost all) of the games given from PS+ are single player games or can be played single player and offline, you will be fine.

If you have a PS3 and/or a Vita and are even thinking of getting a PS4 it makes almost no sense to not have a PS+ account unless you only want the console for a couple of games a year.

Online play makes no difference. I've only ever played 3 of my PS3 games online ever... for maybe a few hours.

On PS+ I've spent $50 and gotten about 30 games free... many of which are top titles.

I can't believe I got mine for only $130. Such a great deal.

I've been having a lot of fun playing Sine Mora and Hotline Miami on it. Can't wait for the PS4 remote play!

So this is the HDD in the PS4:
http://www.storagereview.com/hitachi...ts545050a7e380

But they say it can take any commercial available drive under 9.5" (I believe).

I might look at swapping that out for a faster drive next year. There's some Hybrid HD/SD ones @ 1 TB...

Also Samsung has some 1.5 TB/ 2 TB drives coming at that size:

EDIT:

Just found out I'm getting $500-$750 in scholarships that I didn't know I was getting (On top of an other $2000 in scholarships I was previously too lazy to apply for, but that's not a sudden unexpected income like this is).

I might get a vita now too, almost solely for the purpose of playing PS4 games while I am on the can.

Worth it I bought one used for $150 and it's great. I picked up MLB 'The Show' 13 the other day and it's an incredibly solid sports game.

Persona 4: Golden and Hotline Miami are other regulars on my Vita.

They better make NHL games for vita though now. It's a disgrace that it has no good hockey game. We don't get a lot of good games to begin with, the least they could do is port us NHL.

To the guy who won the PS4, the minute you get it put it on ebay minimum 600$ with a max of like 2000$+

Some moron will no doubt buy it 2-3 days before release, to be a nice guy include next day shipping

I think it's true. Haven't gone and seen it for myself, but for those that have, said it's true.

Press O to Exit, what's wrong with that ?
