Not a fan of the Uncharted series so slightly disappointed Naughty Dog are working on a sequal instead of new IP, was hoping to see something more like The Last Of Us (orginal story and great gameplay). Still there's the new Last of Us DLC coming in the new year
AC4, 1080p - bring it on!!! My TV awaits...
Uncharted for the PS4!!
Now i'm interested I've completed all 3 of the other games.
I am hearing the PSN is having some pretty major load issues right now. I wonder if MS launch will hold up better then the psn dropping out.
iOS was a free update and to considerably more devices and people so they are not in a same league, its not like there are 50m ps4's being activated today but they also may get it sorted before the rest of the world activates on the 29th in larger numbers.
Its hopefully just a launch blip though.

This was predictable given launch sales volumes and the GTA:V online debacle just over a month ago.
I've been keeping an eye on news sites and PS forums and personally I think it's been very quiet all things considered. So far we seem to have a fairly low key HDMI issue effecting a very small number of users and some predictable PSN issues.
I hope next weeks XB1 launch goes jest as smoothly for Microsofts customers.
Sony: https://support.us.playstation.com/a...etail/a_id/237 says offline right now. I also saw someone reporting the same message at midnight UK but it had gone away after 10 mins. Also I wonder if it affects those on PS3's, I guess it would?
Hopefully xbox live wont go down at all, ms should know how do to do this considering the pool of consoles downloading will be less then all the windows pc via windows update etc but we will see, but MS easily could have egg on their face by pulling xbox live during launch weekend. Also hoping you can predownload the update (like quite a few people already removing load from PSN) and do it via usb.
Sony at least will hopefully have it all sorted for worldwide launch on the 29th. I wouldnt be surprised if they release another firmware update between now and then to make it interesting

Really looking forward to the VITA remote play.
Exciting few weeks for gamers and without strong competition we'd have some locked down and (even more) expensive systems. Happy days.
On another note with the teardown comes some new technical info on PS4: It has a secondary ARM chip and an additional 256mb of ram to shift the load away from the main chip. Might explain the why it can record and compress the last 15mins of video realtime. Might also be used for background downloading/PSN/OS leaving the main cpu/gpu for the games, who knows Secondary ARM processor and extra 256mb DDR3 ram in PS4

Hmm it appears Amazon has pulled PS4 sales due to BLOD issue: Amazon suppresses PS4 sales; DOA systems may be at fault - GotGame
Most of the stock has probably been produced now anyway so Sony halting for a little shouldnt hurt too bad. I just hope sony priorities those with BLOD over sending to shops as I would be pretty ticked if Sony said after Christmas for a fixed one (some have claimed this)Launch-day sales issues are a familiar beast for gamers when a new console touches ground, but Sony’s Playstation 4 has gathered a particularly bad cloud of press on Amazon.com. With almost 40% one-star user-submitted reviews at the time of this article’s writing, the dominant problem is obvious: dead-on-arrival systems that flash a new “Blue Light of Death.” So many low reviews and complaints have come in that Sony has requested that Amazon cease selling the unit until the problem is addressed.
According to a NeoGAF thread, Amazon Customer Support reports that Sony has halted production on the system until they can address the issues arising with the sold units. Amazon sellers who log in and attempt to sell a PS4 are confronted with a message that “the ability to create a listing for this item has been restricted.”
