Critically Sane gives its initial impressions of the PS4, having finally caught one out in the wild.
Freaking rocks!!! I'm bouncing between 6 games. Feel bad for those who got dud units. Hopefully xbox one will be a smooth launch for those getting it.
I absolutely love it! Everything is SO fast now. In and out of games, making share videos. Instant here and there and the graphics. Man, console gaming has never been so good! The Dual Shock 4 is such a major improvement. I've logged 40 hours on AC4 and I can't tell you how easy it is to just touch the touch pad which opens the vast map world. Slide my thumb over it and set a way point. All while never leaving my hand position. That and going back on the Internet with it. Something we haven't done since the Linux days.
It's awesome. Really enjoying KZ:SF ATM. We will not mention BF4 until they fix the bugs, damn game erased my single player progress. OT: EXCELLENT OVERALL!
Battlefield 4 has single player? (I like to pretend it doesn't... makes me feel better)
Can't stop playing!!
I love it! Wish bf4 was working properly, but in due time. Things worth mentioning... 1. I find myself wishing the ps4 had the same "Xbox record that," command. It records the last 15 minutes, but I don't always remember to go back and find that cool moment, after the long gaming session. It would just be more convenient to immediately save it after it happens without disrupting game sessions 2. Controller battery seems to be pretty short. last shorter than my old 360 controller (I utilize the headphone jack constantly though, so maybe it's related) 3. "What's new" section is a clutter fest of friends "playing" a certain game. Nowhere near as organized as initial ps online trailer. But it's still early, I'm sure they'll fix it 4. Demos? What demos? I'd like to try out some games like madden, nba, FIFA etc... No demos But it's only been a week, and it already is awesome! Very happy with it
Its amazing. Remote plays with vita is anazing. Love how fast switching between apps and load times are way quick. the only thing that ruined my experience was the fact I had to return to work Monday.
Loving it so far. Remote play is pretty sweet too. Been playing AC & like others waiting on them to iron out BF4.
Living!!! ★★★! Amazingly fast, its really a well made console. I wish i could Shake Cerny's hand for this, And Shu for green lighting all the games thats come and coming to the console in a few months, Resogun, Warframe, Killzone Shadow Fall and Injustice:GAU rocks, And I wont play BF4 till the game is patched. Though i will say its damn pretty. Killzone is very pretty!
love it. can't put the controller down. only my silly job has gotten in the way of play time
Pretty dang good I must say. I think I will have to give it some better ventilation though as the fan likes to get a little loud at times during Battlefield Multiplayer. I thought when I gave it a dedicated space in my entertainment center, that would be enough, but noooooo.......... this beast needs more room to breathe!
Played battlefield, contrast, and warframe so far and have been having a blast. My one complaint is that I find the ui rather dull but other than that the system is fast and surprisingly quiet.
Ya I assume they wanted it like that so they could introduce themes like the ps3.
I would like to say something to all you PlayStation 4 owners. Congratulations on obtaining the first true next gen console. Cant wait to get mine on the 29th (dang you Sony) BTW I have a question, is the PS4 quieter or louder than the slim PS3?
Mines whisper quiet. Others have said the fan can be a bit loud but I havent noticed any of the sort. I have not had a single problem with bf4 either. My ps4 site by itself with plenty of room all around.
much more quiet. i turned my ps3 slim over the weekend and it sounded like a jet engine in comparison. ps4 hardly makes any noise
My ps4 is loud when the disc is spinnng. This is due to the "wobble" that is described in some articles as my ps4 does not lay flush. The problem was easily solved by putting something under the ps4 to balance it out. Now it is quiet. Overall I am very impressed with it. The download speeds seem a little slow but the games so far are pretty good.
Mine is whisper quiet. Edit: I haven't tested it with a disc yet though. I bought all my games digitally.
