Sweet! Just got shipping confirmation. Also just got a promo code from Amazon for a free year of PS+. Already had one year coming with the PS4.

Mine has shipped as well.   It is on a truck as I type this.   As a surprise they managed to toss the NBA2K into the package so it will arrive tomorrow.   Madden which shipped two days ago won't arrive until next week.  Tongue

I have found that Amazon is uncanny about having promos of sending me stuff I really want, and coincidentally it's always about 2 days after I send them money for just those items.

Good news about the audio playing though the controller and having standard headset connection.  I plan on putting the PS4 in the computer room and running it alongside the computer.  Since I don't have a receiver in that room I wasn't sure how I was going to get sound from the PS4.  The XB1 will go in the living room with room to crash about trying to do fitness stuff.

Mine is still "shipping now" I don't even have a tracking #.  of course, one of the distro centers is about two blocks away and the other one is about 10 minutes, so maybe they'll just walk it over tomorrow.

We have a distribution center about 10 minutes away, and it is surprising how few things I get from it.

Can definitely tell who Fred Meyer is backing in this whole thing. This weeks paper has a half page devoted to the PS4 plus a small three foot section inside the electronics department. The Xbox has a full page plus four foot display on the outside of the department that you have to walk past when you enter the store. The display btw was converted a few weeks ago from a kinect one that has been there for close to a year.

It's whatever gets clicks theses days. You have to be sensationalist. Like wobblegate. Do the PS4 wobble? No, not in the normal sense. It's perfectly stable on its own and even if you try to make it wobble by shaking the table that it's sitting on. But when you push down on the side that overhangs then you can change its center of gravity. It's almost like physics or something! And then they call it wobblegate. Whatever gets clicks.

Rode by my local Gamestop at 5pm and there were 4 people camping. That's 7 hours out and I'd imagine that number has substantially increased since I left there an hour and a half ago.

I'm so stoked! 

I've already received Fifa 14 and Assassins Creed 4 (got AC 4 for free thanks to Amazon promo).

PS4 to be delivered tomorrow.  I'm looking forward to the weekend.  Unfortunately I won't have a ton of time to play it this weekend though as I have to fly to Chicago for a "reward trip", which should be really fun, but I'd really rather be at home with my family and my PS4 slywink

I know it's a joke, but they don't have a huge partnership anymore.

NBC is now NBCnews.com instead of MSNBC

Yeah, I know. But there's still the MSN, outlook, and bing logo in the corner. The best jokes have that kernel of truth.

Otherwise, I don't think it's conspiracy, just news reporters doing their weird thing when trying to report on science and tech.

Remote play with the Vita over the internet....actually works pretty well!

I am actually shocked. Gaikai must have worked a little bit of magic with the whole remote play thing. It's pretty incredible that they got it working so well over the internet.

I am waiting until this is confirmed in the wild with multiple situations before I get really excited... If it does work as stated, that is pretty awesome..
