Gameranx: "Sony's President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida confirmed on Twitter that you can play your PlayStaion 4 without ever connecting to the internet. Thus, the Day One update is not required for the console to function."
That's cool, you can play for 2-3 days in a row and when you can't stay awake anymore, then you download the update
Lol, 2-3 days in a row? I can see everyone now... http://static.tumblr.com/cf... "The light...it burns!!!"
More like this :P http://24.media.tumblr.com/...
LOL I haven't laughed at anything in awhile, but that did it for me. Seeing as how I work grave shift, that's pretty much how I am everyday.
@mistertwoturbo I use to work night shift. 7pm-7am. I know how it feels bro! It took me 3 years to get on day shift. Can't wait for the ps4 to better our crappy lives lol.
Agreed, that 7-7 shift was horrible, especially when all my mates would be at the pub watching a big game!!
You think that's bad try working from 7pm to 7am. While others are partying or sleeping, your up working and then you get a schedule for the weekends. Now that is a life killer. lol!
A lot of people would die if they did that, skipping sleep is not something cool or safe for your health!
responsibility awaits !!!
@mdluffy Obviously I was joking, I personally sleep at least 8 hours a day
Which is why I quit my graveyard shift. I can't sleep during the day. It mess up my body clock and I just not productive during work hours.
Pretty sure Sony did not want that when saying greatness awaits.... They do not want people dropping.... Then rags like the Sun, Mirror would have headlines like Death awaits!!!! So game on responsibly.....
I skip sleep all the time and im ffinninno/;hj;ao.S
@beaver Dude your comment reminded me of this banned "Original Xbox" commercial. ROFL! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Staying up 2-3 days once does not equal death, if that was true then I would have died at least 4 times!
Meh dont be lazy dl the update if you can to get the full features and glory.
Cause it takes so long to download a 300mb patch? Maybe it's because I have FiOS, but that would take my internet all of about 5 seconds. All it's doing is initiating all the online services
I have the 15th-22nd of Nov off so ill try and play 2-3 Days straight. BTW i had a cousin of mine play So long that his eyes got so irritated that he wore sunglasses so he can continue to play.
Or if your not a big online gamer, keep it on the day one firmware, cuz when ps4 gets hacked it'll most likely be on that firmware.
http://ragefaces.s3.amazona... i mean seriously.
Would be clarification due to not all upcoming consoles being able to do this.
+ people ask those kind of obvious questions.
Who doubted this? I mean come on... What company would release a system that required you to download a patch to play it day one??? o_0
Microsoft with their Xbox One.
You can't even play Forza till you go home and download the other half of the game.
lol you made me laugh bubs up, on topic i can see xbone buyers without internet access going to a neighbor or free wi fi hotspot to be able to play on his xbone
And either bringing a monitor with them or managing to use one which happens to be there. Just wonder what's going to happen first: the Onion does a fake story about someone having to lug their 60" TV along with their XB1 into a Starbucks, or there's a real story about the same thing.
@godmars. That is fricking hilarious.
Don't you have to download one on xbox one before you can play? Or were you being sarcastic? Lol
Wow... So you can't play online, use remote play, play blurays or anything else... But you can play single player games! Ya.. Nobody is downloading that update on day 1.. Lol
yep. How on earth did you get disagrees for stating fact? Is it potentially due to the fact that you did not spin this mandatory day one ps4 update into a positive? Only on N4g. http://www.onemanandhisbike...
***"How on earth did you get disagrees for stating fact? Is it potentially due to the fact that you did not spin this mandatory day one ps4 update into a positive?"*** Two things... 1. He's spinning it to a negative you mean. This is positive news no matter how you slice it buddy. Only a fanboy would spin this into a negative. 2. ***"Ya.. Nobody is downloading that update on day 1.. Lol"*** How is that sarcastic statement *fact*? Hmmm? People who do not have internet will not be downloading the update on day 1... because they can't. Now that's a true fact.
Don't you got a ditch somewhere you got to go throw yourself into...@n4rc must jealously love Sony because he always on these articles.
Please find me one person buying either console that doesn't ha e internet.. Go on, I'll wait... Nobody... That's who.. Stop using hypothetical people to make some case for you.. And having a day one update that unlocks all the features they have been selling for 8 months.. Yeah, how could I have missed all the positivity in that!? Only a fanboy would make excuses for this... Sony didn't have to rewrite virtually all their software after e3.. So what's the hold up? How was remote play demoed way back when if it wasn't ready until recently? Staged demos perhaps? And yeah... This is probably the 3rd sony thread I have bothered to comment on... At least I wait for official news and not trolling rumors and speculation threads
Is it really hard to believe that there will be people buying consoles that either don't have internet or won't bother connecting their console internet because they choose not to lol? How many Live accounts out of how many 360's sold are there again? It isn't 100% right? Thought so. The notion that EVERY single person buying the PS4 either has internet or plans on connecting their system to the internet is far less unlikely. ***"And having a day one update that unlocks all the features they have been selling for 8 months.. Yeah, how could I have missed all the positivity in that!?"*** I was referring to the topic at hand. Are you trying to say that having the option to not download a patch is a negative thing to allow?
Yeah.. And how many of those use xbl family accounts? And how many were bought for 199 years after release... Were talking 400-500 day 1 here... I dont know one single person that is or would buy one of these any time soon that doesnt have internet. And we certainly wont hear from them online..lol.. There are a few probably somewhere.. But thr massive minority simply doesnt matter.. Edit.. I never said that.. I said with virtually every selling feature not available, playing without it is almost irrelevant.. 99.9% will download it.. Its in no way a positive.. And is actually rather telling of Sonys progress IMO.. But day one updates are the norm in this industry.. Its not really an issue.. But its fun to rile up the fanboys by adding some perspective to their love in.. Lol.. Not really to you tho, your OK
if it's normal for games to have day one patches why would consoles be any different?
n4rc still in denial he has too download a patch before he can insert his disc so he can dl another patch to play on xbox
I know several people who don't have any internet connections in their homes especially the ones that live in the villages of Extramadura. P.S yes several cousins of mine from that region are getting a PS4 because they don't have an internet connection. And they will probably end up installing the update from a USB drive or a game disk.

I can't believe you people are arguing about this. 'The pot calling the kettle black' springs to mind, what a waste of energy your all putting into this. Both consoles are desperately competing and both are doing their best to get the consoles ready for launch. The Xbox patch was mandatory due to the policy reversal, the playstation patch is necessary to complete its functionality. What's the big deal?
Well, personally I'm not getting it at launch, but if were to I wouldn't be able to connect it to the internet at the moment because I'm currently at college. For some reason this semester we can't connect our systems to the internet even though in past we've been able to do so with no problem at all. So if I or anyone on campus were to get the PS4 at launch at least we could game on it which is why I say this isn't a negative. I agree that there are some if not all of the features being add/unlocked via patch shouldn't require the patch in the first place. But then again a lot of the features being added requires internet connection anyways and things such as Blu-Ray being added to the console via patch has me scratching my head a bit as I don't see the reason why you'd need a patch for it to work. Has me wondering if Sony might have locked it on purpose for whatever motive they may have for doing so.
I never doubted it, but a bunch of fanboys were arguing about it in the IGN comment section, so i decided to ask Shu Yoshida the question on twitter and he replied to me *fangirl screams*
Can't stand commenting on IGN to much children....
Om something wrong here you need to up date to play blue rays . Isn't the game made on Blu-ray Disks so wouldn't you have to update to play games?? Just saying
"Who doubted this?" The Xbox drone idiots who can't read & automatically assume that the update is for playing games. "What company would release a system that required you to download a patch to play it day one???" Apparently Microsoft.
You realize though that you can't play DVDs or Blu-rays without the day-one patch: http://www.joystiq.com/2013... Make sure to check full press release at bottom of page to see all the features that will be enabled with the patch.
Ill just let it update right away, but Im glad you wont have to do the patch in order to play your games, like other systems do..
Can't you just let the patch update in the background while your checking out the interface or playing a game? This is what I am most excited for the ability to just not have to worry about patches anymore
A little off topic but: I was walking into gamestop to ask them if they were selling DS4 controllers, the guy said yes we are. At that moment I was in a huge dilemma. Should I purchase the new DS4 now or should I wait until the colored controllers come out? I didn't know what to do, but in the end I just left the store :,( It took a lot of strength to leave empty handed today let me tell you
Buy the controller as you can use it for your ps3 (if you have one) so you can get used to it.
But then you ruin the 15thmas morning!
LOL @ 15thmas morning!!!
depends are you going to buy ps4 day one? if that's the case do it if you need a 2nd ds4, the colored ones will not be sold unti a while
Am i going to buy a ps4 day one lmaoo!! of course I am! I already have two pre ordered. @ Sig you do have a point, I forgot the colored ones won't come out until early to mid next year. I can also trade in the extra black one for the new ones.
Omar Why not just get that extra one customed more to You? Im sure by the time the new colors are available their will be many videos on how to open the case.. That's assuming you would enjoy doing it, that's what Im going to do once my warranty is up..
Duh. Even xbone can let you play without the patch.but doubt anyone would do that xD
Actually, it doesn't.
Wow. Does there anything good in the xbone other than third party exclusive contents? Lol
you cant use the xbone without the day one patch, it wont play games at all till it has installed the patch lol
24 hour online check in and Kinect must be connected...so can't play if you have no internet and if you connect to internet it's a mandatory update anyway.
Actually the check in and kinect always being connected were removed a while ago.
Ok... I like the quick Response! So its nothing like the xb1 patch. Sony is no frikin Joke! They dead the rumor asap, Sony is taking the gloves off next gen.. Next gen is going to be awesome thanks to ms and Sony. nintendo, Im still waiting.....
if you don't install the update your experience on the PS4 will be extremely limited, the following listed below will be the features that won't function until the player updates the PS4 firmware to version 1.50 Remote play with PS Vita Use second screen with PS Vita or PlayStation App on iOS and Android Record video/take screenshots and share them Broadcast and spectate gameplay on Twitch or Ustream Play as you download games Log in with multiple users Voice chat with a party of friends Log in with facial recognition and navigate with voice commands (via PS Camera) Play background music via Music Unlimited Play Blu-ray discs and DVDs Or play online with PS Plus
Doesn't this update come installed (if that's the right word) on certain launch game discs? So you can get it offline, if I'm not wrong.
I heard same thing. I BELIEVE launch games have it hardcoded in the disc. I've been wrong before, though (looks at divorce decree)
