Sony Hopes The Spirit Of Lou Reed Can Make Today's PS4 Launch The 'Perfect Day'

Sony needs today's PS4 launch to be the "Perfect Day," and has been using the late Lou Reed's hit single of the same name to promote the console. (PS4)

yeah excellent timing for sony to use perfect day literally right before his death.
i sense foul play on the part of sony, kaz must have ordered yoshida to sneak in there with a splinter cell outfit and off the old bastard.

Yeah, but now 'Perfect Day' has been stuck in my head for over 2 weeks.

Me too especially once I got the hang of Killzone in that part like the commercial.

couple of facts about Lou: he was forced through electroconvulsive therapy to "cure" his bisexuality, and it messed his brain up to where he couldnt read a book. and he was expelled from ROTC for putting a pistol to his superiors head. he would have owned in BF4 on ps4, rip Lou Reed.

yes velvet underground was an excellent band and lou reed was an amazing voice.
i have to wonder if all these young people who hear perfect day even know where it's from. i mean i'm only 16 but i'm well aware of how disconnected my generation with anything of substance or culture.

So far,Sony's launch is everything but a perfect day.

@enemy below
"At least they didn't release a console with 60% failure rate."

I know. It looks like they start failing before before the release. Not only overheating but, software failures as well.
Now maybe people will start to believe it when it's said that sony isn't good at software.

It's a perfect day for me! I've just ordered my £350 1080p PS4. On the 29th Nov I'll be nestled up nice and close to my TV. Hell yes, it's perfect.

At least they didn't release a console with 60% failure rate. Ring a bell?

None of the people I have on my friends list have run into issues. Whatever minor issues exist are definitely isolated events and/or fabricated by fake reviewers.

It's a good thing launch has never represented a console then doesn't it?

Can't wait for mine. I'll be sure to let you know if I have any issues.

Funny. While most of the trolls on here have calmed down, you've upped your game again. Maybe go back to the xbone articles where someone might give a toss about your snide negativity. Or just carry on being an insecure fool. You know, your choice bell

A song about heroin addiction.

The only issues I'm still having are getting on Battlefield 4's online. Freakin' EA and their Origin account crap. -_-

He wrote a song called "Heroin" which was about heroin. He rarely applied subliminal meanings to his songs, and this is a widely misconstrued interpretation of the song.

I can't remember what it's actually about, but I've heard multiple explanations by Reed to its lyrical origin, where he specifically reiterates it isn't about drugs-- something about an ex-girlfriend, I think.
