Sony beats iFixit to the punch by making their own teardown video.

I hope removing the HD can be done without taking all those screws out and that cover.

Forgive my ignorance but why would you ever do that? Or is the video mainly just to show that there isn't lag and most people will play far away from their tv? On that note, does the PS4 need to be on for remote play?

That workout program for the Xbox1 looks great. I don't think I would ever use it, but I'm sure that'll be a big draw for a lot of people.

Remote play seems like a really nice feature for certain people, where they will be able to play their PS4 games while their significant other and/or kids watch TV.  I saw people excited about the Wii U tablet for the same reason.

If someone else needs the TV and you want to continue playing, you can just whip up the Vita and continue without having to do anything special, and it'll be a lag-free experience. There's another use for this too, as shown by Knack. In that game, another player could pick up a Vita and join in as a second player. It appears to functionally be the same as him playing on the same screen (the Vita doesn't render anything different from the original screen), but it opens up interesting possibilities and reduces the need for a second controller.

That's the main thing that people are impressed by in this video. It shows just how responsive Remote Play for the Vita will be.

Of course! The PS4 is where the game is running. The Vita simply receives a video stream of what the PS4 renders, while sending controller data back.

Well, my auction didn't sell so that should make some people happy. 

I tried to relist it for a 1 day auction and apparently EBAY only lets you list this once every 30 days....  No matter if you sold or didn't sell it.  Don't really agree with that.  I can understand limiting something that sold, but not for something that didn't.

What's worse it wasn't mentioned when initially listing the auction.  I might have done things a little differently when listing it.  So I'm going to offer it to my friend at retail cost, and if he doesn't want it, I'm just cancelling.  Not really upset, just don't agree with their policy.

Why did you auction this before release and thus the ensuing panic sets in when people cannot get their hands on one?

It's almost here! There will be a minimum of 6 unreserved PS4's per store. If what Yellowking heard was true about the XB1 not having any extra for non-preorder customers at Best Buy....then that is really bad news for Microsoft.

Here's some more info on Xbox Fitness I've gleaned from various (official) sources:

- Partnered trainers include Jillian Michaels, Tony Horton (P90X), Tracy Anderson, Shaun T (Insanity) More trainers and workouts to be added after launch.
- Kinect will be able to do muscle mapping by observing force/weight/momentum and give tips on which muscles should be worked harder
- Kinect will be able to detect pulse (touch free) up to 10 feet away
- Kinect can detect color changes in the face and temperature changes. Will take a baseline reading before workout to see how close you're coming to having a heart attack.  icon_biggrin
- Creates personalized workout recommendations based on workout history and past performance
- Tracks performance history and creates social challenges so that you can compete with friends and other Xbox Fitness users
- Non Gold members will still be able to purchase workout ala carte. Pricing is said to be similar to the regular workout DVDs.
- Launch will have more than 50 workouts ranging from 10 to 60 minutes

I wasn't paying much attention to the X-Fitness stuff, but it is starting to look interesting.

Because I didn't want to deal with shipping it.  And other auctions were selling for over $600.

Yep...you can always try price matching Target at Best buy though. Then you get both. It's of course YMMV...but it's worked before.

That would have been me. Haha! Best Buy stores already have the PS4s in their warehouses. My store in Flushing, NY got pallets of them, with at least 40 machines that haven't been reserved.

Ken, sorry to hear about your auction not panning it. I wouldn't be able to buy it from you. I won't have the mulah for it until January. Hope you can sell it soon.

Yeah, there does seem to be quite a healthy supply of PS4's for launch! The Target in my area said they got all in for their preorders, plus "a bunch extra". Sony is really going all out for building a commanding lead his holiday, especially if, as Yellowking mentioned at his local Best Buy...they are not going to have any extra XBones at launch. Must really be having some production issues. Oh well, their loss!

It's at the expense of Europe's supply though. Stock is really limited over here. I believe I may have mentioned this already, but I heard that there are only 350k PS4s available on launch day across the entirety of Europe. Most people who've preordered won't get theirs on launch (which is the 29th) unless they did so in June or earlier.

Something Street Fighter related getting announced for PS4, could just be a port of Ultimate SF4 or something else.  Probably find out Thursday during the launch event.

I'm getting pretty hyped for the launch event on Spike TV. Sounds like lots of new games will be announced for the PS4 on the show.

For me, not much. I am way more interested in Dead Rising 3 from Capcom. That game is the only reason that I am even considering a Xbone.

I do think that Street Fighter 5 will be a natural fit though for the PS4. Most fighting game junkies play on the PS3 anyway, due to the shitty D pad on the Xbox 360 and having it exclusive can't hurt the PS4. I don't really think that it will matter much in the end though....most people seem to be getting the PS4 anyway, based on preorders. My local Gamestop that I reserved the PS4 at has 130 PS4's reserved and 34 Xbones.  eek

As a big fan of the Street Fighter series, it would definitely perk my ears up, but just as my excitement over my beloved Forza series is diminished by the prospect of having to buy a new steering wheel, I'm a little grumpypants that my current customized fight stick won't carry over to the next generation.

If only someone could develop some kind of... universal serial bus so that peripherals could be cross platform and carry over to different systems.

Actually, they might. I believe Sony has said that there's no inbuilt support for the old sticks on the PS4, but that individual developers can add support in their games if they want. If so, it's very likely that we'd see support for a bunch of old fight sticks.

Sorry, I didn't give enough detail.  I have a 360 one right now, and not one that also works on the PS4, so if Street Fighter V went PS4 exclusive I doubt it would carry over.

That was all the preorders they had received for each console. I believe that they could have sold more XBones but there just was not the interest. That was the total number of preorders they received up to the cutoff date. I was also told they would have at least a couple of each system (maybe many more than that) for non-preorders.

Xbone is still outselling 360 2-1 in terms of pre-orders, so I don't think MS is ready to slit their wrists just yet.
