Anybody else getting excited for their PS4 to show up? We're less than 3 weeks (19 days) away from getting our new toys and I can't wait! I'm a little disappointed by some of the titles being pushed back but what can you do? It seems every title I wanted to get for the wife has been pushed back and I was really hoping she would have something on launch day to play. I'll have Killzone, Call of Duty, and Madden for release day. Watchdogs, Thief, and The Order:1886 on preorder although I'm not sure I gain anything by preordering them? Anybody else getting excited? :)

Hi guys, quick question. every time I see the PS4 picture, it is standing up (vertical) .. Do you have to keep it that way? Or, can it be put flat? Meaning horizontal on the table? Which is the preferred position?
It can lay rest in either position but horizontally is best.

We are officially one week away and I'm having trouble containing my excitement! I have the extra DS4 and COD Ghosts sitting on my media rack staring at me everyday. For those interested Warframe is a free download for the PS4 and you can reserve the free copy now on your PS3 through the PlayStation store. Doing this before November 12th will provide some extra perks for when you receive your PS4. A special PlayStation skin for your gun and 20,000 tokens to give you a leg up on the completion.

I'm really intrigued out the "extinction" mode for COD Ghosts is compared to the Zombies mode of black ops I and II... (which I play with a buddy religiously)
I've read mixed reviews on the PS4 version. It seems people either love it or hate it. I'm very intrigued by some of the different play modes.

I just got an email from Amazon for a free PS4 game for multiple games ordered. Entered the provided code and Assassins Creed IV is free of charge! $59.99 and not a penny spent from my account. Thank you Amazon! I feel like a kid at Christmas.

I believe this is Amazons counter to Target offering a buy 2 get 1 free. If you had games on preorder before a certain date you qualify now. Everyone else will get the offer I believe on the 12th. Regardless Amazon continues to excel with customer service. I love doing business with Amazon.

Don't forget today at Target they're offering buy 2 get 1 free. Just picked up Battlefield 4, NBA 2K14, and FIFA. I've never been into or played soccer games but I'm running out of titles. I'm done for awhile. :)

You won't be able to play your PS3 titles on the new PS4 so yes you would be starting over. As far as getting your original PS3 fixed I would think you'll be able to find some pretty good deals on used PS3's and that might be the cheaper route to take. Many people making the upgrade will be unloading PS3's and all of their games.

I know all of your trophy info is stored on the PSN but not sure about the game saves progress? If not you should be able to transfer the info from the original PS3 HDD to the new PS3 HDD. As far as which version of the PS3 is best I think the newer ones are smaller, quieter, and run cooler.

Who was lucky enough to get the Play Station 4 today? Any issues? I read some news that some hdmi ports were not working properly but that was on some units sent to some review sites.. Not sure if that was seen for the general public thou.
Mine is on a UPS truck and scheduled for delivery by 8pm. From what I've read they're having serious network problems and many people aren't able to play multiplayer with the FPS titles. I hope they get it figured out soon because I'm feeling sick and not sure I'll be making it into work tonight! :)

lol. I think you are coming down with play station blues.. Apparently it is very contagious and you should stay home for a few days with complete isolation.. No distraction from outside forces.. :sn:
A few days sounds good but that wouldn't pay the bills. It's a 24 hour bug. :)

Have yet been able to sign into the PlayStation Network. Madden 25 and Battlefield 4 give me error codes when I try to load them. Not sure if it's my PS4 or the network? The games not loading properly are concerning as I know others are also having trouble logging onto PSN. A bit frustrated.

Yikes maybe it's a system overload... But that stinks you spend X amount of money and can't even play.. I got the approval from the wife but I'm going to wait a little longer
Other than the two that won't load I can play single player and campaigns just not the online multiplayer. I like playing online the most so that's the reason for my frustration. It seems some are able to while others can't. I don't understand it but I almost wish I had waited. I like my toys to work.
