that I'm going to be one of those proud owners come this November 15th. I'll have my physical copy of Killzone: Shadow Fall and Watch Dogs. As for digital : Secret Poncho, Outlast, Driveclub, Resogun, Planetside 2, Warframe, and Blacklight: Retribution.

So glad Sony went on a straight-forward path with the PS4 when compared to the PS3. A lack of complicated bottlenecks such as low ESRAM yields or defective APU troubles will most likely mean Sony will have an easier time than Microsoft early on in the console's lifecycle. Hopefully MS can overcome these potential problems and stay competitive.

I feel like I'm not ready but I'm also waiting for it to happen like there's not much else to do. I keep coming back to this site absorbing tons of next gen news just eagerly anticipating the systems release.

I don't know what to call it but I'm excited.

Thehyph2829d ago

Same here. I doubt I'll even use this site that much anymore when next gen drops. I'm just using it to pass the time at work.

November 15 will be a fantastic day.

Also, I'm pretty sure I'm one of the first to own next gen in the world. That's pretty exciting.

GMT -3:30 means an hour and a half before eastern time gets it. (Midnight launches, of course)

If you are saying you will have Secret Poncho and Outlast on November 15, I don't think those will be available yet. I am not sure of release dates, but especially for PS+ I think those will be free games later. They said one free game per month with later months including Secret Ponchos and Outlast (I think Don't Starve was also mentioned).

Also, if you are in North America, Resogun has not been confirmed as a PS+ game, either. That was only confirmed for PS+ in Europe. So if you are in Europe, you'll definitely be able to get it, but otherwise, we just don't know yet.

Thehyph2829d ago

If Resogun is not free for me, then I have no problem paying for it.

I'm betting it will be my first and favorite game until inFamous launches.

Sevir2829d ago

Both Resogun and Driveclub are confirmed day one for PS+ members... As the conference had information that was pertinent to North America. Even if it was just for Europe, Resogun is available day one on the PSN with PS4 so most will buy it even without PS+

@Sevir, "Both Resogun and Driveclub are confirmed day one for PS+ members... As the conference had information that was pertinent to North America."

That is not correct. Housemarquee has been specifically asked if it Resogun would be PS+ for both or only Europe, and they said they cannot confirm at this stage if it will be free in North America or not. It is only confirmed for Eurpope. From that, I read that it doesn't mean it absolutely won't be for PS+ North America, but we cannot count on it being there, either.

Personally, there are indie games I will pay for, but that isn't one of them. I'll gladly download it if it is a free game on PS+, otherwise I would much rather put my indie dollars towards Galak-Z as my indie shooter (whenever that comes out), and The Witness, OctoDad, Rime, Everyone Has Gone to Rapture, Contrast, and Daylight (not to be confused with Dying Light!)

But, to each there own. I hope all of the good indie games sell well, even if they aren't my cup of tea.

Magicite2829d ago

Gz sir, You will be one happy man.

PlayStation_42829d ago

Secret Poncho and Outlast are not launch titles BTW, they will be free to all PS+ members in 1-3 months times (after launch)

Sevir2829d ago

Shortages or not, I pick up my PS4 on midnight 54 days from today!!! I can't wait to be among the first to Usher in the Next Generation of Console gaming! :)

When has there never been shortages of new console launches, I suspect the ps4 will be hard to find until like feb/march

majiebeast2829d ago

WiiU,Vita and i think even 3DS werent hard to find.

meatysausage2829d ago

mmm actually vita was for me

NukaCola2829d ago

The Wii was sold out everywhere for over a year.

PlayStation_42829d ago

If you mean home consoles then 100% yes, handhelds are usually pretty easy to find though.

jagstar442829d ago

really hope they haven't over estimated preoders and i'll be left without one :(

TheOneEyedHound2829d ago

Quick question: At like what time will Amazon deliver the Ps4's? I don't want to wait all day on the 15th.

grumpc2829d ago

Small price to pay for a brand new ps4 in my opinion.

patsrule3162829d ago

It probably depends on the UPS driver and the route the driver takes. It could be morning, or it could be afternoon.

SquareEnixFan2829d ago

I don't know about anyone else but from my experience if FedEx delivers it I'll receive mine in the morning.If UPS delivers it I will receive it no earlier than 5-6pm.

sAVAge_bEaST2828d ago

You should get a tracking number, .. then you will know exactly what time to expect it.
