I was playing Killzone from my vita last night, It's only laggy when lots of emenies are on screen or the wifi drops which happend to me alot. lucky the game will pause so you don't die. My wifi sucks and I had to wire the ps4 in because my router can only really handle 2-3 devices.

So, unboxed and setup last night.  I did not experience any of the out of the box issues.  Video came right up, no blinking blue light, update downloaded and installed without issue.  So that was very nice.  I also let it run for about an hour and half to see if anything did happen as far as those issues reported. Also it is quiet and boots up quicker than the PS3.  So next I loggd into PSN and that went fine.  I will say the contoller is excellent.  It feels good in the hand and is VERY responsive.  The configuration of the top buttons is also improved IMO.  Next, the UI.  I liked the PS3 UI better.  Just not feeling the layout but it works.  That may grow with updates so it is early on that.  The Netflix app works wells, I played a video and some music and that all was working good.  I didn't have time to game yet so that will be next.

 

I'm most pleased that I didn't have any out of box issues.  I was fairly concerned.  Amazon didn't pack mine all that well so that added to my worries.

So I got my PS4 camera hooked up and I must say it is pretty nice.  The facial recognition works well and the camera is crisp.  Also voice commands work well.  Started playing AC4 and it is very nice.  If you've played any AC games it isn't far from what you would expect.  The contoller is comfortable at extended play sessions.  Also playing madden 25. Graphics are slightly improved.  The field and stadium are actually the most improved.  If you have liked the madden games chances are you will like 25.

Just got my PS4 today, and I am blown away by how amazing it is.

Whole menu has an improved layout and it is now much easier to access all the media funtions or internet functions without having to go through a hundred tabs.
It is also much easier to install and update games than before.

Controller has a much nicer feel than the PS3 or XBox 360 controllers I have been using.

 

Killzone looks great and plays even better than it looks ! 

 

Need for Speed Rivals looks near on-par to the PC version of Need for Speed Rivals (minus a little AA and tyre smoke), which is a massive improvement over the PS3's capabilities.

FIFA 14 is the biggest jaw dropper I have experienced. The whole pre-game, half-time and post-game experience is miles ahead of any FIFA I have played on PS3 or PC. The player textures are much improved and the pitch is amazing - the blades of grass are identifiable and you can see blades of grass coming off of a player's boots when running or shooting. The whole crowd is also unlike any I have seen before in a sports game, they bring a much needed atmosphere into the game.

 

Overall, very satisfied with my purchase. Now to await Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, Thief and Infamous Second Son...  :)

We're nearly to the point where I can't hold out any longer. :lol: A PS4 is going to be my next major purchase, most likely in the next month and a half. InFamous: Second Son and, yes, MLB 14: The Show are what's going to do it for me. May get a third game too, but dunno what.

I endorse PS4 100 percent.  I have both consoles now giving slight edge to the PS4 based on controller preference.  PS4+ is nice with the free games each month.

PS4 isn't worth it until the Infamous: Second Son Bundle is officially available for pre-order.

I've been grabbing the PS4 games offered via PS+ since those started. :lol: Only one I missed is Don't Starve, but I already have that on PC so not a huge loss. I've always preferred the PS controller over the Xbox one, so glad to hear you like it, InCrysis.

 

And yeah, depending on what that Second Son bundle comes in it, it'll more than likely be the one I get.
