    Count me in!

    Though having access to PS3 games AND OWNING THEM is better in my mind than streaming with Gaikai and ownership being based on how much extra money I'm giving Sony.
    Now the first console that can manage hacked backwards compatibility will have quite an advantage, I still yearn to play my 360 titles on the one.

    I guess you sold the 360 and such to pay for the One?

    Best not get your hopes up. The CPU's in the new consoles are nowhere near powerful to emulate those in the previous generation at anything even close to a useable speed - which is why neither consoles has backwards compatibility already.

    I thought so but poo, there is still no Alan Wake, Bioshock or even halo for the XB1, they seem to have left their prime stallions out of the race so far on both sides of the fence, I guess they don't want to hobble them with an old gen/next gen port situation where the result is rubbish on both sides of the generation gap.

    Give it another 20 years or so and x86-64 processors probably will be powerful enough if the Higan (bsnes) emulator is anything to go by.

    No, still have the old elite setup in my bedroom but it still sounds like a 747 cargo spec coming in to land.

    Has everyone managed to get their PlayStation Plus activated now? (If you brought a subscription) took me two days of trying to activate mine! Tad annoying.

    There's been a problem with PSN since launch. Too many people downloading day-one updates.

    It's worth keeping an eye on the PS Blog: PlayStation.Blog.Europe : Your daily fix of PlayStation news from across the SCEE region for updates. They are also the first to announce the new games each month for PS+ subscribers.

    Also, I've found some milage in using the PS App on iOS/Android and/or the Website rather than accessing directly throught the PS4. Don't know why there'd be a difference.

    I'd love to be able to just download games whenever, but my current 4MBps down doesn't allow for that. Hopefully will be doing something about the connection speed soon though.

    Managed to get our hands on a PS4 on Saturday through a little bit of trickery, some luck, and a lot of an awesome family friend swapping pre-orders with us.

    Spent a fair chunk of time playing Injustice, which is nice and shiny, though Frame Rate seems a little slow in cut scenes for 10/20 seconds before it picks up.


    I'll still try the XBone, but I know I'll getting myself a PS4 now.

    PS4 IS nice. I think Injustice had frame rate problems anyway. [You really notice it with Batman's supermove, apparently.]

    Moving from Xbox to Playstation has thrown me a bit with the controller... It feels nice though. I may need to get hold of an Xbone PC controller to see what that's like.

    MCV reports 250k in UK alone in the opening weekend to make it the fastest selling UK console. Outsold the WiiU already.
