I'm also feeling my interest level rising on Knack for PS4.    Does anyone have any impressions on that one?

Someone already camping for the PS4...

I really don't understand this mentality at all.  If you're so hardcore and willing to give up a week of your life to camp on a sidewalk, why not just take the 10 minutes to preorder it when they were first available?
My friend and I have done campout's for stuff before, just because we thought it would be fun.. For the most part we did have some fun, but these were only night before campouts. Some also for Black Friday stuff which you can't pre-order.

I'm pretty excited for it. Looks nice and will be a fun family game. I've also been playing with the iOS companion app for it. It's a match-3 game where you can unlock relics for use in the PS4 game.

I'll be working from home the 22nd until it's delivered. No chance in hell I'm going to risk UPS leaving an Xbone on my porch. If I was a thief, I'd be roaming neighborhoods looking for big console shaped boxes.

And if they're taking vacation days to do it, the salary you're giving up doesn't take long to equal just paying the eBay markup.

Bought KZ on Amazon and they just sent me an email to BOGO, assuming to match the Target deal.

don't see why not.  of course it may be that you can add one of the select games into your cart and it will be free at checkout.

in other words they'll be keeping track of what you buy and what you return, so don't buy 2 games for 60 bucks, return them and then expect 120 bucks back.

Well, I only got the email because I have already bought one game, thus  making this a B2G1.  That's why I am wondering if I can return the original game and still get the B1G1 deal.

It works out to the same I think.  As you got the promotion code if you already preordered a game.  This is if you preorder two more games, at least that is how I have interpreted it.

when in doubt get the game you are interested in but are worried may suck, at least that way you can tell yourself 'well, at least I didn't pay for it'.

ah, gotcha.  I was thinking that the 1 game was included in the B1G1 already, so in essence you were just getting a free one.

Ok I went with AC4 and NFS:Rivals.  Already getting Killzone, and didn't need another FPS right away.  Felt a strong pull from Knack though,  and it was tough to choose between that and Rivals, but I figure Killzone, AC4, and Rivals gives me a nice spread of games at launch and I can grab Knack later if it's decent, as well as add it to the xmas list.

About the most/best I've heard about this was a bit of vague praise from Jeff Gerstmann over at Giant Bomb who said that it was actually better than he expected.  That was enough for me to keep my preorder and I'm hoping once reviews hit it is at least a decent launch platformer.

I've seen a lot of impressions from people who were surprised at the difficulty level in Knack recently. It looks like a family game, but it's built to really challenge hardcore gamers as well.

I had Knack and Killzone already preordered at Amazon, so I figured I would go with Assassin's Creed 4 for my free game.  That was about the only game I even kinda wanted that I don't already have on PC or have preordered for the Xbox One.

it's also not necessarily being sent to everyone.  there's at least one who got a code and only had a bundle ps4/KZ order.  I had the PS4/Watchdogs bundle but no code was sent to me.  also, some are claiming to have a code sent with cancelled pre-orders.  then, there's this now.

How many of you are taking Friday off to take shipment of your PS4?

Can't take Friday's off, my hours are 4pm til midnight and I'm the only one scheduled to work Friday swing shift.

UPS usual delivery for my house is around 5pm so the box will have to sit there on the stoop unless the wife is home and grabs it.

Same for the Xbox the week after but I'm not too worried, my house is off the street and you would have to walk past 4 other houses to get to mine, never had a problem with missing stuff.

Well, I got an email with a code that I can use right away.   I'm having trouble deciding on two titles....   I wanted to save a couple good titles for my wife to get me for Christmas if she so chooses.

When I look down the list, the games other than Killzone that I want for the PS4 are:

AC4
Madden
NBA2k
Knack (maybe depending on review)
Battlefield (perhaps, but I imagine that most people will be switched over to playing COD)

So I'm leaning towards getting the two sports titles and leaving Knack and AC4 for her to possibly get me for Christmas.

Finally got to see the Xbox One in person today at Best Buy. (They still don't have a visible PS4 unit). First impressions were that it was smaller than I expected, as was the Kinect. Which is a good thing. Of course, everything looks smaller in Best Buy. I was trying to show my mom what a 42" TV looked like and walked immediately to the 50 inch TVs. Then I realized the 42 inch ones were the ones shoved in the back that looked like computer monitors.
