So ready for this bad boy.Less than 2 months 2 go :).

Abriael1341d ago (Edited 1341d ago )

Yeah, next gen can't come too early, really.

"The PS4′s cooling fan has a low noise level and stepless speed control (meaning that it will increase its speed to match heat smoothly and not in sudden steps like the one on the PS3)."

I love this stepless speed control!

PS4 Rocks!

Eonjay1340d ago

Sounds good! Also, love the low power secondary processor so I can load content remotely from work if I see something awesome and also the improved fan. Speaking of which, the FCC documents say the console only goes up to 35C at max so that right there should tell you something. This console is very well thought out.

The PS4 is getting more and more awesome news every day it seems.

KazHiraiFTW1340d ago

I hope they actually use a good fan in the PS4. When playing TLoU I swear my PS3 fan was like 120db I had to turn the TV so loud I probably pissed off my neighbors.

Polysix1340d ago

@KazHiraiFTW true the fan can go crazy at times, but you never heard of headphones? I game in (good) headphones most of the time even if no neighbours - more immersive and can't even hear a fan!

KazHiraiFTW1340d ago

@ Polysix

I have a sound card and excellent headphones for my PC, and I agree it's way better. But I'm not gonna waste money on headphones for a console that hardly gets used

UnholyLight1340d ago

Aside from Halo 4 and GTA V (Currently only own an Xbox 360 at the moment..SOON TO CHANGE! :)) I've been getting pretty bored.

Especially seeing all the gameplay for games like Killzone and DriveClub...The wait has been too long!!

i have already made a space on my tv stand designated to the ps4 that how ready i am for this machine

PCGamingNoobs1341d ago

haha me to, cleared out and dusted everything up so its all shiny next to my ps3 like big and little brothers. its going to be a good Christmas!

LoveOfTheGame1341d ago

Little off topic but, I'm getting the X1 and have been planning on where to put it. The problem is I have a PS3 and 360 so I can't seem to find a way to make it look conform and nice looking with those three console on one tv stand.

I guess if you had two of one brand and one of the other what would be a good way to have those set up? Three tiered, bottom mid top? Oh next gen and all the problems you bring.

LoveOfTheGame1340d ago

Might be a little OCD, but have the consoles right next to each other with the next gen in mid is going to drive me crazy getting it to look uniform.

But, that might be the best I can do. I guess I will just have to wait till November, that's when the real planning will have to take place.

Friend: "Hey man you online yet"
Me: "No time, have to position my consoles just right."

Spend 5 minutes getting high,then play the new PS4.

AceBlazer131340d ago

65 days,5 hours,20 minutes till my ps4 gets delivered.

The Shadow1340d ago

how they achieve to make this ps4 console alone is just mind-boggling

more power
no power brick
better look
horizontally or vertically
less power consumption
faster blu-ray read

truly masterpiece!
this is going to repeat like ps2 success or even better.

1OddWorld1340d ago

Both systems have a 6xBD. The noise people will hear is going to be from this drive not the fans from cooling.

isarai1340d ago

Getting mine in Feb, gotta wait for tax return, but that means i can get Infamous DAY ONE WOOOOOOOOOH!!

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1340d ago

lol that will be my reaction when the courier deliver my PS4

1OddWorld1340d ago (Edited 1340d ago )

Hope he doesn't drop kick it while packing his truck.

I buy all electronics in store, so I don't have to deal with the hassle of sending it back and waiting. You know some one is going to receive a PS4 in pieces.

Salooh1341d ago

That made me choke XD T_T


Destrania1340d ago

I'm going to do this in the doorway right in front of the courier lol.

I wanna see the OS performance and how quickly the system can handle tasks. I really hate the SLOW updates on my ps3 and i would love to see a huge improvement on my ps4.

Septic1341d ago

Yeah I just got PS Plus and oh my days...the PS3 is a joke when it comes to downloading and updates. The whole system is a shambles and a fat memory hog at that. Sony have promised a completely different experience so I'm definitely looking forward to how it works in the real world. If its as smooth as they say it is, well then butter me up and call me a jabroney.

Tony-Red-Grave1341d ago

might as well start making your new account and name it jabroney :D

DevilishSix1341d ago

Are you staying at Smackdown Hotel?

king_george1341d ago


Dude tell me about it! Jesus you dont even wanna know how long i waited for DC universe online...... IT.... TOOK... AGES.. im very hopefull that the ps4 will get rid of those ridiculous wait times. Plus the games look insane so i cant wait lol


You dont know what you're talking about do you... what MS was trying to do and what Sony are doing are just WAY different

Volkama1341d ago

The OS has to perform faster. Even if they've learned nothing about OS design, and I'm not saying that is the case, but even if they learned nothing they have gigabytes of RAM and plenty of CPU. They can get bad software to perform well through brute force.

The download speeds are more of a concern. I don't know why that's so poor, and I don't know if they're really making infrastructure changes to improve it.

Off-topic, I am half way through Heavy Rain at the moment and my PS3 has decided I can't play blu-ray discs any more. I'm hooked on the story and want to finish it, but it's not available to download in the UK. Anyone know if it can be bought from a different region's store??

Thehyph1341d ago

@Volkama as far as I know it's disc only in North America, too.

Size is probably the biggest factor. Heavy Rain is one of those PS3 exclusives that would probably need a few DVD's to hold.

sic_chops1340d ago

You will be able to play games shortly after they start downloading and while it's downloading.

HardcoreGamer1340d ago

updates overnight without the need to download stuff?

downloads games as you paly? downlaods videos while playing? These are good features and i like it over xbox 360

but 360 is a faster menu and smoother interface.

eff waiting for xmb to load my messages menu

I like this quote. "The theme of the PS4 is “Personalization”, meaning that it will offer an experience tailored to each individual."

kingPoS1341d ago

Sounds like custom themes via the browser. At least thats what i hope their saying.

I love my custom dynamic themes!!
