GameStop Opens a “First to Know” Waiting List for the PlayStation 4

GenGAME writes: GameStop management has confirmed that the retailer has opened a “first to know” waiting list for the PlayStation 4. This isn’t a true pre-order SKU (that will come a little later) but you can go to GameStop now to have your name put on a call list for when new information about the console releases, and you will be notified when the system officially becomes available for pre-order. (GameStop, PS4)

Ps4 looks so promising. Still kinda confused how the ps4/psvita. Wonder if every ps4 title will be playable or what? Anyways the wiiU is irrelevant at this point now lmao!!!

From the sounds of it, they'd like to have that; but right now, it's too early to know if that's achievable. It's likely not mandated in the development contract to enable this sort of functionality, so it may fall upon Gaikai to provide some means of doing this on a per game basis if the devs don't play ball.
rainslacker  +   958d ago
Gaikai may not be needed to do this. Near the beginning of the conference they mentioned there being dedicated codec chips built into the system which could facilitate this kind of transfer, although it wasn't talked up as being used for that. This is particularly important when using remote play over the net.

As far as licenses, it's hard to say since I believe developers have to allow it now with the PS3, and most don't care about their older games to bother with it. It's certainly not mandated for new games from what I've seen.

I really dont know what to do since all points for a always online connected playstation 4,and no phisical discs.Did you people saw what bungie comment at the end."They were very happy because the PS4 is an online connected system like our game destiny".. it make me think that the PS4 is a always connected console by does words.Please disagree but the way seems to be always online connected next generation!!

Are you serious?
deadfrag  +   958d ago
Yes!An Sony didnt announce that because they know for sure that M$ is going that route too.So let M$ be the bad guy an announce it.You people dont want to believe it.I got that vibe,not only from the Bungie comments at the end but from the Blizzard guy and from comments like this:"You can start playing the game the moment you start downloading it".

The Blizzard guy hinted at the same thing. What's unknown is if it's a required online connection or not, and what that connection means to just playing games.

? They are merely telling you that you "can" be connected online at all times and be connected to PS4 when you leave your home on your phone, PSV, PC etc. I highly doubt Sony will have a always on DRM.

That might be the stupidest thing I've heard all night. Sony very much knows not everyone has internet. PS2 made its success without it, PS3 sold huge millions even with a lot of users not even having accounts on PSN. Not sure how that would help them.

Even more funny, why wouldn't they say such a thing? I think tonight would be the night to say something as important as that.
rainslacker  +   958d ago
The stupidest thing you've heard all night? Really?

Anyways, yes it would be a stupid move to do such a thing, which is why I would like them to clear up the rumors(which admittedly are stronger on the MS side) and now the comments made that hinted at it.

Why wouldn't they say it? Because they know it would be a negative, and this show was definitely not meant to show any negative info about the system. There are downsides to everything, and while I'm hyped for the system, I do know there are things not known right now that may affect my, and possibly others, decision to buy one.

I personally doubt it would be required 24/7 for games, but given current trends it's not unreasonable to wonder.
