    I know a lot of PS4 owners are probably desperate for something new to play, so I'm just reminding everyone that Strider is out today.

    I plan on picking it up when it goes to 30, really looking forward to it. I'm loving Origins on my Vita. Oh, and Tomb Raider is 40 on Amazon I don't know if its just today. Platformers baby!

    Yeah, Origins was one of my favorite games of the last generation. I held off on Legends last year because I didn't like the way the touch controls translated to a normal game pad. So I'm hoping they make more sense on the Dual Shock 4's little touch pad, and I'm also waiting on a price drop as well. I hate to do that to game I would love to support, but Ubisoft is known to slash their prices pretty aggressively after release, so I guess I'll just wait and see.

    Indeed, I actually have stopped buying 60 dollar releases all together. I want to support these comics but I simply just have too many interests in all forms of media lol. Games price drop alot faster now(minus first-party titles it seems) and I don't mind waiting, I really want to play Thief but by summer I'm sure it will be alot cheaper. I'm expecting the majority of PS4 launch titles to be in the 30 range soon...

    I love Origins so much I'm going to get the PS3 version just to have it for a console too. I'm really glad Ubisoft continued with the classic Rayman and not the Rabbids junk. Rayman was one of my first PS1 games. Now if only Ubi could get to Prince of Persia again.

    I know the console is designed to be set on stand by mode a lot but exactly how much power does it use during it?,Does it still use a whole lot of electricity and does it over heat?,I'm not downloading anything at the moment so I have it shut off right now.

    Also,Why doesn't the info on the web browser get saved?,I log into accounts and most of the time when I back out to the U.I. then go back into the browser it refreshes and am logged out of all accounts even though I always put them on stat signed in

    I'm not sure, I'm always too nervous to have it in standby lol. Only if I'm at home then I put it on standby at my dorm room so I play it remotely with my Vita(which is reliable by the way, its awesome to play your ps4 miles away from it).

    I believe someone broke it down that standby uses $5 a year in electricity. It's minuscule. Here is an article comparing power consumption.

    The only danger/downside to standby is a possible power outage or whatever, since no electric device likes being yanked out of power. My power flickered over the weekend while in standby and it turned off. It gave me a "disconnected from AC" warning screen the next time it booted up.

    I feel the web browser, while snappier/more responsive than the PS3, still leaves a lot to desire.

    I don't even think you can set a homepage, can you?

    No, but if you leave it in Standby you do run the risk of damaging the PS4 or the HD due to a possible power outage (based on whatever the PS4 may be up to at the time). That's what we were talking about.

    thank you for your answer. This is why I wondered if people unplugged their ps4, to avoid pwoer outage. I do that with my ps3.

    Killer Instinct is pretty sweet, but I agree... Sony needs one too.

    KI is the one game I wish weren't XBOX exclusive.

    I would have picked that up ( or downloaded it ) day 1 if had been on PS4.

    Just bought BF4. Loving it!! Should tide me over till Thief 4 arrives next week. :)
    also downloaded Strider. Was a fan of the original.

    I'm still really bummed Sony ditched 3D. I freaking loved playing Killzone in 3D on the PS3 and I still use my PS3 to watch 3D movies.
