Wow that sounds like an amazing deal for launch games. I'd probably buy everything.

To be clear, if I were getting an X1, I would still have the same concerns. It's mostly because its new hardware, and the problem with new hardware is that no matter how much testing it goes through with the developer, there's always the risk of new issues coming up once it reaches mass consumption by consumers. Like you never know if 1 out of every 10 systems has a problem if you only tested 9 systems. There's always the risk of some kind of defect that can only be found once everyone is using it.

Testing will never be comprehensive compared to the thing landing in the hands of millions of gamers using it exactly as it's intended to be used. They can take out a big probability of things going wrong if they have solid testing procedures but it can never give full assurance. That's why big companies who I'm sure have good industry standard procedures for testing their products still have to recall certain product lines for serious failures that they didn't detect. That said I've always bought at least one console at launch every generation and they all still work to this day without major problems (I had to get my launch 360 repaired after about 6 years for £40 but it's worked fine since to this day although it now belongs to a friend). The one thing you get by waiting a long time is superior versions, slimmer/quieter/cheaper/better cooling etc.

I will for sure get my games now at Target. I'm thinking for sure I want BF4, and Knack. Then maybe for the free one I'll get Killzone.

Well, I just traded in most of my Xbox games today and used the credit to purchase a PS3 console (500GB + GTA5 bundle). I have a newbie question: When I logged into the game for the first time, it asks me to fill in several info such as timezone and language. But it also asks me to create an User ID name for the console. Is that the name I'll be using for PSN? If not, then can I create a name without registering with PSN first? Thanks.

Yeah the USER ID and PSN Username is different.

I see. So, the User ID name can be anything I want it to be, then after getting into the main menu then I can create a PSN ID name from there? And can I change the name later, or is it permanent?

Your PSN ID is permanent.

Looks like the whole cache vs. install thing for disc based games has been cleared up, link. Disc based games do install the full game to your HD in the background while you play, and in order for it to be removed you will have to manually delete it.

I need to get a 10TB drive. Or play games in a completely different style next gen just focusing on a few at a time until I'm completely done with them.

Installing games and then deleting the data when I'm done isn't that big of a deal. I've survived just fine on an 80gb drive. Still though, would be nice to have a 1Tb drive.

cant sell or trade digital games. Thats an advantage that retail games have that will prevent me from ever going all digital. I use my old purchases to fund my newer ones. It also serves as a buffer that if I purchase a game, I may not like, I have the option to make a profit off of it so that there is little loss on my part. Plus install from disc >>> downloading. 50gb is alot and will take some time to download. Even with the PlayGo feature, if you're internet is down or acting up, you are screwed.

yeah. The PSN ID is permanent which I think sucks. It should be like the XBOX Live system, where you can change it for a fee.

as for the User ID, you can name it whatever you want, but for simplicity/consistency, I just use the same name as my PSN ID.

Surely this can be changed? It does indeed suck as most people end up with a crap name 1st time as they are just trying to play and being forced to choose a name quickly from a list where everything cool was taken over 6 years ago contributes to that. The Hype also used to have a no name-change policy and the average user-name was that much worse for it lol.

Yeah, even with PS+ games that are free, I'm always a little unhappy with downloading them because sometimes they take up a lot of space and even though I have space and can always delete/re-download them, it is more of a hassle than just putting in a disc. That's why I don't think I can ever fully get behind just buying games digitally.

That sucks. The PS3 and even one of my TVs does that.

Sony has started a Rewards Program. Seems like it'll take awhile to earn enough points for anything good, but it's not a bad idea to sign up.

The new faq still says PSN IDs can not be changed, so think long and hard before making one.

Oh I've got one already which isn't terrible but I wanted to change maybe both my gamertag and PSN ID to be the same. Wouldn't be losing much as I did more of my PS3 playing on my friend's PS3 (without using my PSN ID)anyway rather than my own. I assume that if I create a new one there won't be any problem even if I'm using it on someone else's console most of the time? This time I want to get trophies on the exclusive games or some games I might want to play twice like Destiny.

I wonder why they didn't change the name change policy to match Microsoft. If possible they could make money out of it (MSFT charges 800 MSP each time and I have some friends that have been through quite a few name changes) while helping out some gamers. Maybe it's something on the coding side.

Fans of shooting (virtual) people in the face rejoice! You can do so with 2.25x more "real" pixels on screen with the PS4 console than its nearest console competitor in this year's Call of the Duty.



The resolution gap could narrow some time in the future.

So.. It's still 720p...which was what everyone was saying last week. I mean, why can't it be 1080 native in both (because of the ESRAM)? I respect the guy for actually confirming this and not sweeping it under the rug but all this does is just prove the rumors/leaks correct.
