Just picked mine up, but I'm sure that some of you went to Midnight launches. How are you finding it?
I'm not that impressed with the launch line-up, to be honest. I picked up Black Flag and Lego Marvel Superheroes - two games I would probably never buy full-price usually, but they were the games that appealed to me the most (looking forward to ResoGun too, and Contrast looks interesting).

Anyway, what are your thoughts, Crunchyrollers?



Also: This is my dog right at the moment when she realized she's probably not going to get a 'walkies' this morning!

I like it so far. No major problems yet, for me at least. But I'll probably trade it in for your dog in a heartbeat.

Oh and I got assassins creed and fifa....really wanted minecraft though

plan on getting one, just not any time soon. like you said the launch line up of games was rather lacking. there was ~26 games and while some seem interesting enough to pick up eventually, none of them screamed that I needed them, watchdogs was going to be one but got pushed back, and COD ghosts was another, but with no campaign coop and measly wave type for coop it got pushed down to a probably will never buy.

I'd say about 85-90% of the games I buy are coop and yet there are only like 2 local coop games in the entire line up, and none that appeal to my tastes and it seems like campaign coop games are being dropped since none of the launch window titles (the games set to release by march) even have any coop or just dont fit my type of gaming. Im hoping that deep under and the order 1886 have campain coop (but seeing as how deep under seems to be an online I doubt it will) Order might, but the possibility seems slim.

might just wait until MGSV comes out and get that, but since they're releasing it in 2 games, I may even get it once they bundle the two games if they dont have any more games to offer between now and then.

Yes, to be honest I pre-ordered early to ensure getting one on release, and primarily that was for Watchdogs. With that game delayed (just as well though, it was looking rough!) I was stuck with the dilemma of canceling my order or just going with it. Decided to stick it out, because I'm not sure how easy it will be to get a system in the coming months.
I don't really play games online much, so I didn't really notice a scarcity of Co-Op titles. I like story-driven games more. The Order certainly looks like my kind of thing, though. It IS a bit of a disappointing launch line-up (and the XBox One doesn't look any better) but it's certain to improve with time.
Anyway, I should probably unbox this thing...

Well, I've not managed to sync my PS4 to my Playstation account yet. Very high traffic on PSN today, for obvious reasons. I've been stuck with 'please wait...' for 20 minutes now.
Still, the box it came in looks nice, and all the little plastic bags that the cables and stuff came in are useful for storing spare Figma parts.

I got the update (I stored it on a USB drive) but cannot login to my account. Been at it for an hour or so, and now it says this...


This is why we can't have nice things!

Yeah, I know. First World Problems, right? It'll work eventually, and I feel pretty fortunate to even have a PS4.
I gave up trying to log in, just sat back and played some Lego Marvel Superheroes. Looks beautiful on this system. :)

I've heard talk of overheating (Sony insist in putting the power unit INSIDE the console for aesthetic reasons) and supposedly the PS4 'wobbles' if you stand it upright, although I think that latter one is nitpicking a little.
It's always sensible to wait a while after console launch before getting one, because software, and sometimes hardware, issues can be resolved then. That said, the launch was too close to my birthday (next Tuesday) for me not to justify purchasing one as a gift to myself for being a good boy this year! :)

Now that I've actually got mine, first impressions, I like it. Haven't had any problems, the controller is great and it looks good. Also glad it's a relatively small case. As for games I've only played ACIV so far, not in an FPS mood, but it looks great and runs smoothly, only nitpicks I have, graphically, are game specific, not console specific such as some odd animations.
