Earlier today, Shuhei Yoshida took care of some very serious business on his Twitter account, clearing up all questions people had about the PS4′s game streaming and recording features being behind the PlayStation Plus paywall. - PSLS
No sticker? Pre-order cancelled! On a serious note, I can't wait for gamescom and what Sony has in store for us.
How do you think they were able to make it $100 cheaper? No sticker shock. :-) Hopefully there will be an early adopter bonus.....ps3 gave us Talladega Nights for free.
Yoshida has a good sense of humour :D http://imageshack.us/scaled... EDIT: First 60gigs PS3s came with an Ethernet cable, but i guess everyone has one at home these days
@ABZDINE That's one of the best gifs I've seen
@Abzdine awesome gif lol Stickers is so cheap. Eventually it peel off and leave a glue mark. I tend to peel off most of my laptop stickers.
@abzdine My sides are in orbit. Jack Tretton as Hulk is just too good.
damn i really want to change my PSN name, i have i good history there and i don't want to make a new one
The 9 free games on PSN is not enough of an early adopter bonus?
No, because some of the games do not hit until 2014, which means people who are not early adopters can get them. We are not sure if the titles will ever expire or pulled, so again not just for early adopters. Some require psn+, so even if I am an early adopter, I have to pay more to get my "bonus". Finally if I already have a psn account, what stops me from just ordering through the website, and just downloading the titles a month or year from now? This is not a make or break as my ps4 is already paid for, but I would like an extra perk beyond just knowing I am one of the first to own one.
That Xbone sticker is really expensive... super premium sticker made of baby whales.
whose face is on thor? I can't recognize the man.
I must have missed the sticker part. I get that he may have been joking but....why?
OH my!!!! No sticker?!??!?!?! Please say it ain't so!!! I need that sticker!!!!1 ROFL
I so want to pinch Shu's cheeks.
I want to palm his forehead.
I want him to be my Dad
I want him to be in my Dad
that escalated fast...
Beat me to it lol.
I would like to change my PSN name though, that's about all I can think of that I wish they implement.
I hear you. Mine is crap. It is even beyond crap. New12 what is that? I was too young and naive. I just wanted to get online quickly and the best I came up with was New12. I hope this feature is available
Same here, I'm to the point that when I eventually get a PS4, I'll make a new account to do it. Though I'd prefer not to lose my trophies and games linked to my account.
No thanks on the sticker. I like my consoles clean and shiny.
I see your point, but you don't have to stick it to your console...
But imagine if it was racing strips. It would go faster duh :P
Racing stripe sticker to make it faster is almost as stupid as the cloud making magic.
Sony will make my day if the ps4 launch and during unboxing, it includes 4 PlayStation stickers. lol
Now this is one executive who has a sense of humor Can't wait to get my ps4
I agree the ps4 is where its at for this gen at least the start especially because of the low price and best hardware and features.
so you also entered the vindictus competition but couldnt be bothered to change your avatar.
The ps4 kinda does come with day 1 perks in the form of a free game (if you get Plus of course, which im assuming most people will). Sticker...well, my apple logo is still sitting in my iPhone box. So, not too upset about that. :P
"you won’t be able to stream PS Vita games on the PS4." DAMNIT, SONY! Give me some way to play Vita games on my big screen, HDTV, and I may actually consider BUYING ONE!
Well, for one you'd be stretching the image a lot. Next, Vita probably doesn't have the power to output a game and stream it at the same time over Wi-Fi. Maybe a USB cable would be nice.
why the disagrees .. he said some sold facts
meh. I still play PS2 games on HDTV and the Vita has way higher resolution, so it should look fine.
i think that sort of defeats the purpose of it being a handheld ,although it would be a nice feature, its understandable that its not included
I play my PSP at least 10 hours a week all on my big screen(never use my PSP any other way), its to bad the Vita can't do what my PSP can. It's the only reason why a bunch of friends have refused to pick one up and is the reason I am thinking of selling mine. If my PSP games look fine on my big screen I'm sure the Vita ones would look fine too
Im good with just playing all ps4 games on it, i really dont care about it not being the other way around. I got it thinking i can do it with my ps3 games though, sony!
I don't know why would you rather play 950x544 vita games stretched/upscaled on full hd screens. Playing on it native res on the vita's oled display is much better.
I'm waiting for a Vita with video output on it, like they eventually did for the Psp. I really don't get why it wasn't there from the start, it's a very useful and desirable feature.
Isn't the whole point of handhelds to offer easy, portable gaming away from a tv or monitor? Why would you buy a handheld to play on a tv... that's what consoles are for...
I've done it when travelling, I hook up a psp, phone or tablet to the tv in the hotel room and watch movies, play games or browse the Web all on the big screen
For some people (specifically, JRPG fans), the only reason they buy handhelds is because that's where the games are.
There are tons of games that only release on the portable devices, games some of us would like to play on a big screen. You act like they're all ports or something :/ Besides that it's convenient for when you're at home and still want to play your portable games. Why not be able to play it on a big screen in those cases? Also in line with the above example; Portables are portable so you can bring them along with you on trips a lot easier than a console a it's nice to be able to hook them up to the tv once you're there an use their multimedia and gaming capabilities compared to lugging your PS3/360/Wii along.
@FamilyGuy I'm not acting like anything chief. A handheld is a handheld. If it enables you to hook up to a tv for media, that's great... but for this guy to say that he might actually buy one if he could hook it up to play games on his tv is off the mark. Having the capability to is one thing... only being interested if it has the feature is another. It's a handheld... it's meant to be played away from a tv. Vita games would look bad on a big tv anyway, but they look great on the Vita screen.
I don't agree with that, why would Vita games look bad on a big screen? You've seen videos like reviews and trailers of Vita games on the big screen right? Even the enormous screen at E3 show Vita games and they still look good. Why would it be a problem? My point and his point were that we want to play some of the Vitas games, they aren't all on consoles, but we don't want to necessarily play them on the small Vita screen OR we know they'll eventually release a model with video output which would be better so we're willing to wait/will only buy one when that happens. Different people want different things, it doesn't matter that it's a handheld, it has it's own exclusives = desire from people that might not be into handheld gaming. I don't ride trains, buses or go on long trips so I'm at home when I play games. I don't need it to be portable, that's just what it is. There's nothing wrong with wanting a portable device that does more, especially when its predecessor has the feature.
Lol. Yeah. Lets strech a 544p game all the way to 1080p. GOOD IDEA!
Sony software engineers can't do scaling options? 1:1 "half" "full screen" *gasp*
that's higher resolution than a DVD and it probably should look better than even Netflix with its badly compressed "HD" movies.
Here we go...LETS SHIT ON NETFLIX NOW. Is this gonna be the new trend this week? Ya know we can't go a week without the newest nerd 'I HATE' thread. We had I HATE EA, MADDEN, COD, ACTIVISION, KOTICK, UBISOFT, MS, XBOX ONE, XBOX ONE STICKER, XBOX ONE BRICK, now this fool has a hard on for Netflix. Jesus Christ. You want your bottle now you cry baby
What are you talking about? Netflix looks clearer than Time Warner Cables so called HD channels (1080i).
Maybe your internet sucks? Also if your watching it on a computer the Ps3 seems to show a clearer image in Netflix than my gaming computer for some reason, never really understood that.
Nothing new, CoD games are that resolution anyway.
You sir just earned a bubble.
I don't know why people are raving against this. You could do it with the PSP (a 480x272 native res system) and games looked just fine on it. I played my PS2 all the time on my various HDTV's with component cables and those games' native resolutions were most of the time well below 640x480. Not that big of a deal, people.
You can always count on Shu.
Isn't that guy a friend of Iiori from Persona 3?? :P
I don't know about Persona 3 but Shu is the tutored student (tower social link) from Persona 4. SPOILER ALERT Lol his birthday party was a blast Motorola RAZR i
*SPOILER There is also a shu in Persona 3 he was mentioned by junpei when he was telling a ghost story to SEES member when fuuka was missing
Pfff, Shu is the genius strategist from Suikoden 2.
I wish Sony would give. I something for getting the ps4 day 1. Gamers should start a petition!
A simple avatar or something would be nice. It's a non-issue though. Just having the console itself is its own reward!
Yeah I kind of like that Microsoft has that day one thing going its pretty nice. It won't change your experience but its a nice little perk
What day one thing? Logging in to authenticate/upload your credentials and GPS location to the NSA?
I mean like that little logo on the controller and stuff like that. NSA what? Wow man calm down
I just want to know if I'll be able to bring my favored name, KillrateOmega, over to the PS4. Back when I had a PS3, my profile name was Killrate-alpha. On the Xbox 360, my name is currently KillrateOmega. Will my old PSN account carry over to the PS4 thus leaving me unable to use that particular associated e-mail (assuming that we can't change names)? Or will I have to use an alternate e-mail in order to use 'KillrateOmega'? Gah! I need more information, Yoshida! It may seem unimportant, but my current online identity has sentimental value.
Shulda like not posted here. I bet someone is making a PSN account w dat name as we speak ;O
Dude's a tool
Speak for yourself.
