The only accessory I want is the verticle stand. The DS4 charges itself when the PS4 is off so I don't need a charging station. Maybe an additional controller.

The damned vertical stand is such a ripoff in my opinion. It's a piece of freakin' plastic that should be included with the system I feel. I hate that I have to spend $14.99 if I want it...dumb...COME ON SONY! ;)

I will probably wait and get the stand later and spend the $15 bucks towards another game for now.
MWong  +   345d ago
Why include it the system probably can stand on it's side without any problems. I just want a better base for the console when it's on it's side.

Well GameStop has the stand for $18's right now. So why wait and I'll just use some of the points I have on my GS Rewards account for a gift voucher. Probably get it for like $3.

1 Dualschock 4?
*Dualshock <----Correct term
The one you used sounds nasty...
blackbeld  +   345d ago
You don't need the stand to charge you're DS4 controller.

The only thing you need is usb cable plug in your PS4 and it will charge even when the PS4 is off.

But just give me an extra DS4 controller and I am very happy.

2TB HDD. Trust me you're going to need it.
gaelic_laoch  +   345d ago
You know what I have been think hard and long about a bigger HDD and I must say I am worried I would just use it as a dumping ground for games I will never play.

I should be getting 50mb broadband soon and would rather be downloading games I will play within a month then delete.

Of course I open to a change of mind at anytime after release!

What would be you main reasoning behind bigger HDD? :)

Multiple platform games built for multiple platforms sporting Bluray.

You had better believe that the big multiplat games will be taking advantage of the medium's size.

If you play on buying or installing digital, then you will eventually have to delete games.

Games are only going to get bigger in size over the generation.

OT: I'm getting the charging dock because I'm absolutely sick of wires.

"dumping ground for games"

I found I get behind a lot in my gaming catalog especially with PS+, and if the actual game isn't sitting on my HDD I may forget to play it entirely, and I've also found some games I really enjoyed that I never would have bought on PSN thanks to PS+. So when you start downloading those 10+GB games and installing, that 500GB HDD is going to get ate up pretty fast.

I'm mainly downloading for Remote Play though.

Any idea yet of how thick of drives we can replace the stock one with? I can't find anything bigger than 1TB in the 9.5mm spec... anything bigger and you jump to 15mm for the most part. Not sure how much room we have to work with in the PS4... anyone?
Cryptcuzz  +   345d ago

It will most certainly be 2.5" hard drives. SATA or SSD. They have them in the bigger sizes, Google should be your friend in where to get them.

Almost a 100% certainty on this, since it does not make sense for Sony to go with the bigger 3.5" HDD's when the system is small in size from the get go. That and the fact that 2.5" hard drives have come a long way. They have speeds and larger caches just as good as there bigger counter parts. Sony used the smaller 2.5" HDD's in the PS3 and I don't see them changing that with PS4. Hope that helps, cheers.

HDD = Hard Disk Drive A.K.A Bottleneck.

Supercharge your PS4 with an SSD (Solid State Drive).
ABizzel1  +   345d ago

You're better off buying 2 PS4's. The price of an SSD that has well over 500GB is around $400 if not more.

Like the PS3, SSD provides just a slight improvement in terms of load times but it costs too damn much compared to its HDD equivalent. Until Sony make a console that is made for SSD, getting 1 is not worth it just yet.

I don't know about other places, but in my area, 1TB 2.5" HDD is A LOT cheaper than 250GB SSD. Ain't nobody got monies for THAT!

beezlebozz  +   345d ago

The stand is nice I guess for those going vertical.
Don't really need a charge station. I'll just use a usb cable while playing. I have a 10ft usb cable. These seem like nices choices though.
For an extra controller, I want a blue one. They want be available at launch. I'll wait.
LiQuiZoN  +   345d ago
Same. Your just as awesome as me! I cancelled my 2nd controller for the blue or red one!
MAULxx  +   345d ago
I'm glad I could achieve your awesomeness :)
I guess together we are, epic?
nerdeu  +   345d ago
That charging station is quite unnecessary now since the controllers can be charged when the PS4 is off. I have a charging station for my Dualshock3-controllers and I only bought it just because of the PS3 incapability of charging while in standby mode.
Sevir  +   345d ago
58 Days till Next Generation! ;) Can't wait till the PS4 is here in NA! PS4=PS4
RiPPn  +   345d ago
I wonder if the PS3 bluray remote will work on the PS4? It's bluetooth so I assume, was just hoping for an upgraded model.
stevehyphen  +   345d ago
Tweet Shu, he'll probably answer you.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   345d ago
The charging station is awesome and it will be a day one purchase for me.

However the I'm passing on the vertical stand. I'm done with having any console in the vertical position. There was only one consoleI felt comfortable having in the vertical position and that was the original Wii.
T2  +   345d ago
This gen I had a vertical stand with charging station included ... Nothing like that out yet ?

Got my pre order receipt for the PS4 and AC4 BF in my wallet.

I wonder what hdd mm height it will hold. Bigger 2.5 hdds come in different measurements. Does anyone know?

Just get the standard 2.5" HDD's (Also known as laptop drives) Getting 2.5" drives in anything other than standard 2.5" would certainly be a very tight fit, if it would fit at all.

We got to assume that space is at a premium on the PS4. With what it is packing under the hood, (Internal power supply for example) in such a small form factor, everything will be compact and made to fit precisely without much wiggle room. In this case, the HDD's should be standard 2.5"
zippycup  +   345d ago
problem is that even if it says 2.5 inch if its 1gb it will fit but some higher ad a disk instead of density so it will be a couple of millimeters bigger
troncoparati  +   343d ago
2.5" HDDs come in 7", 9", 9.5" and 15" heights...I was wondering about that because the 15" one on NEWEGG is 2TB and 7200 rpm...That's what I want but no specs like that are out there.
MAULxx  +   345d ago
I'm just going to wait till the sytem is out & people get their hands on it.
Then, we'll not only find out what the stock HDD is but if there are benifits to using SSHDs.
talhat2  +   345d ago
The stand seems slightly expensive should really be £10, oh well still going to get it :D
1nsomniac  +   345d ago
Already paid for my pre-order - PS4, 2x pads, Watchdogs & FIFA 14 - BOOM!!
Shane Kim  +   345d ago
I hope the DS4 controller supports the same usb port as the DS3, couse I allready have a cheap 3rd party docking station that I could be using.
KontryBoy706  +   345d ago
Man come on Sony... $15 for that plastic stand... that's a little "Microsoft-ish" don't ya think?

Where have you been? Sony has always charged money for the PlayStation Stands all the way back to the PS2 days....
dragongod64  +   345d ago
Ya ...
but there a rip off. So I never get them.
Any way, The only system that works on it's side is the wii.
Zancruz  +   345d ago
@dragongod64 What?!

The PS2, PS3 and 360 all could be stood up! The stand just gave the Playstation(s) more stability when standing, IF I was the type that would stand my system up the $15 would be worth not having my $400 to $600 system come crashing down....

lol $15 for the vetical stand?.. Reallly?, Sony??.. Oh please I'm a PS fan since PS1 era please don't charge me 15 for stand..
KrimsonKody  +   345d ago
Oh my freaking goodness!
THIS is not NEWS!
This is what I call a waste of a hit.
Did'nt they mention monthz ago that these were the accessories coming along with launch?
& remember how we argued over whether or not the stand was needed?
I only hit the post because I thought there were more items, other than what was already said.
This is "olds", not news.
