Just wish they'd lift the street date for the PS4 now. Picked up Killzone, a DS4 and the PS Camera today... I'm ready to pick up my PS4 now.
Pixel_Enemy  +   577d ago
I agree guitarded.. I have my DS4, camera and charger. I might just pick up BF4 and KZ Shadowfall now that I am allowed to.
TomShoe  +   577d ago
I'd go nuts with all those PS4 games sitting around with no console to play them on.
guitarded77  +   577d ago
@ TomShoe

Yeah, I really want to play, but I'm trying to make a dent in my backlog before the 15th, so it's not too bad. Plus I'm downloading The Puppeteer (< $20 for PS+ right now), so another new game for me keeps me distracted. But when I look at the back of the Killzone Shadow Fall case and it says 1080p native, I get a little worked up.

I'm so sick of this "greatness" bull****.

Christ, it's a f*cking video game console.

Buy it, play games on it, have sex with it for all I care.

But unless you work for Sony, using their ad slogans in normal conversation makes you sound like a deranged stalker with some kind of obsession.

It's really off-putting.

To the point where I actually have begun to hate Sony just based on the way you people act.

@UnHoly_One If you're serious please get some help unless you want to be miserable.
"Buy it, play games on it, have sex with it for all I care."
If I were richer I might have a specially made realdoll with a PS4 for a head but as I only have one I will treat it like a delicate precious treasure.
"But unless you work for Sony, using their ad slogans in normal conversation makes you sound like a deranged stalker with some kind of obsession."
Pot calling the kettle black.
"To the point where I actually have begun to hate Sony just based on the way you people act."
Save the hate for more important things. If I thought like you I'd hate the internet based on the way you acted.

Your brain is forcing you to believe this, not the people saying greatness, it's making you upset over nothing. If you use things like self hypnosis you can quit being a slave to the greatness inside your own head.

P.S. When I get the PS6 that you can have sex with I will definitely be saying things like "You won't have to await my greatness much longer baby, it's coming!"

Well you see, seeing is believing. Where are the eXB0Ne goods? Time is near, time is here yet we still need to know WHAT you get if you buy into the eXB0Ne camp. Al we have is promises, and M$ are not well known for delivering on that, just like at E3 but yet not much to show nor much "confirmed"! I know it's not a nice situation but still no reason to take the butt_hurt concerns out on us!

@ unholy one


The best part of the ps4 is the ps4.
The worst part are the ps4 fans.

I have a ps3 and possibly will get a ps4 too when it gets some good games released for it.
However, based on the behaviour of some the PS4 fans I am honestly questioning why I would want to identify with that community.

It's become like a zoo full of monkeys throwing feces at anyone that walks past.
Volkama  +   576d ago
BBBird you're right the PS4 fans seem awful. But it is just a very small vocal minority, they are not representative of the PS4 community at large.

Getting a PS4 will not turn you into "one of them".
monkey602  +   576d ago
Unholy one
So for whatever you care everyone can do what they like about the ps4 except get excited. Right gotcha! -_-
Orange Juice  +   576d ago
@bird and volcama

No one fanbase is better or worse than the others. Sony fans had to deal with "playstation is doomed" trolls for the past seven years and trust me, there is nothing more frustrating than that. Still, you dont see me saying that microfans are the worst because I know that both sides have their bad eggs.

Now that the shoe is on the opposite foot there are some that are excited to watch microsoft fans eat crow and humble up. Its a constant pendulum that will always swing.

You wont be a part of a "perfect" fanbase ever, no matter which console you choose.

Although you went a bit to far/crazy, I see your point, I just don't think you said it very well. To clean up the mess you typed, I think you meant to say:

It's just a game console, not the creation of fire.

PSFans are going a bit overboard acting like it's the next coming of Jesus. I'm looking forward to the new systems, but I'm not taking days off from work or waiting outside for it. I'll get a ton of disagrees, but I do agree with the couple people who have said the PS4 community has really been off putting. So much hatred over a video game console.
UnHoly_One  +   576d ago
I apologize for my over enthusiasm, some of that was supposed to be intentionally exaggerated. I suppose if you read it and take it 100% seriously, it does sound a little crazed. lol

Anyway, to answer some questions, I don't have a problem with the slogan itself. I don't care if I see 100 commercials using that slogan.

It's just seeing fans using it as a catchphrase that strikes me as really weird. I've never seen anyone do that with any product, it's bizarre.

And I know I'm probably wasting my time saying this, but I'm no "Xbox Fanboy". I am buying both consoles.

I prefer many things about Xbox over Playstation, so yes, I'm more apt to "take their side" than most people on this site, for sure, but I'm no blind fanboy.

I'll happily admit that the PS4 is a more powerful console. That doesn't bother me a bit.

But I still think Ryse is the best looking game we've been shown so far, and I think the Dualshock 4 is a terrible controller.

So if that makes me an "Xbot", then that's fine. But you don't see me going around spouting off Xbox marketing slogans and worshipping MS executives' every tweet as if it were gospel.

All I'm trying to say is the level of fandom some of you guys have for Sony is disturbing.

I apologize if I offended anyone.

@ UnHoly_One....Im the guy who said "Greatness it shall be" which is not the Slogan. The Slogan is Greatness Awaits. Anywho, dude its not that serious. Honestly, you did come off like you're a immature kid. I say that because kids normally rage over ish like that. Listen, I perfer Playstation over Xbox however I do not dislike Xbox...At the end of day we are all gamers. I would never hate on you because you show love for your system of choice. If anything I can relate. No hard feeling though. GREATNESS AWAITS FOR PLAYSTATION AND XBOX!!! :-)

PS...Call me a fanboy, Its fine. However everyone is a fanboy of something. Rather is games, Stereos, Cars, Watches, Women, Jesus, etc...Let them enjoy what they love.

@ UnHoly_One
With that Logic you should never have bought a 360. go back to when the PS3 came out and Xbox fans brutalized the PS3, trashed it and just about every game stop you went in you were told don't buy that overpriced piece, buy an xbox it has way more games. Many of them today now play on both 360 and PS3.

Another smart move. Why make it a hassle for people to all go down at once ( same day ) to stand in long lines to get the games they want badly at this point. If the game is ready, already shipped and just sitting at outlets. Let it go already! People will get to hold something real in their hands. This assures them it's really happening! It's already going to be crazy enough just picking up our pre ordered PS4's.

I saw that today. The only thing was for me was pre ordering and getting pre order DLC and in game content. I've already pre order AC4, KSF and BF4 so I could get that stuff. But that is still a awesome deal since they are rewarding you for buying what you already were going to buy anyway.

Thanks, I wish the employees at gamestop were this smart. I received a sly under the breath comment between two employees about "why get the controller now he can't use it on anything". Gamestop employees are clowns, I don't expect them them to know everything about games but they really should be quiet when it comes to this type of stuff. If customer wants to purchase something early let them there is no way of knowing the customers reasoning. Don't even want to mention when I called about Killzone today, lol. The only good that came of it is that i found out about the buy 2 get 1 free at target. Really considering it now instead.

This is normal I believe every gen you could buy the the games before the console release especially the games that had versions from previous gen console. Its also good because if they sell out fast before launch they can send shipments out so people can still get the games they want when the console releases and not be stuck with any game that's just left over.

Today I picked up my DS4 and played with it on the PS3. Wow, the controller is awesome, so comfortable, it have a lot of more precision, if feets naturally on the hands.
