    PS4 looks about the same size as a Wii, which is good as mine is going where my Wii is.

    Looks like some reviews of the launch games are starting to appear online. Currently the only game I have on pre-order with the Console is Battlefield 4. Killzone has been getting slightly above average reviews so I might give that a miss just now.

    Resogun looks awesome though so I'll probably grab that from the PS online store too

    Resogun and Contrast are the free PS4 games for PS+ subscribers next month, with GRID 2 for PS3 (Suppose that makes up for the lack of #DriveClub - NOT!)

    I know, mine is going to look simply massive and out of place under the 3m screen I project on to, how will I cope

    Pulled from a facebook group I am a member of

    So it seems some of the pre-release Playstation 4's have been broken. One before it was working, some during the first start up and others through a test run through, and some during updating of the firmware.

    More info here Broken PlayStation 4 Systems - IGN

    I will say this, when playing at Eurogamer, it wasn't a bad system, I'll look forward to owning both "next gen" systems

    I saw that the other day. Part of me wants to shrug it off as normal manufacturing defects - a small percentage of any tech will be faulty. Part of me wants to shrug it off and say bad shipment, yanks are getting them 2 weeks before us. Part of me is looking online at extended warranty deals!

    Be awfully bad luck to have the entire bad shipment go to all the magazines and reviewers who get first hands on them!

    Any console arriving DOA (or DOA just after opening) shouldnt happen tbh, not even the 360 had that issue.
    Its concerning when only a small % of the shipments have been distro'ed so far. Remember all preorders have already been made for UK etc so who knows. It may hopefully just be a firmware issue, its not the first time for Sony.

    MS blinkers on? The 360 did. A friend got through 5 in ONE year inc 3 DOAs and 2 other RRODs.

    Well, you are in the lucky 45.8%. Credit to MS they sorted them out in 2008 and gave everyone retrospective 3 year warranty.
