I have two controllers bought a month apart (early December and early January) that has the rubber on the left thumbsticks on BOTH broken and/or rubbing off. I don't have the receipts because they were gifts so warranty doesn't apply to me apparently.

Warranty on the controllers?  I'd have guessed it's long expired by this point. (90 Days)

Heh, over here I'd guess the warranty is 5 years (or 2 at a minimum, but I think it's 5 because it's a device built to last), so they'd better make sure it works very well indeed.

As mentioned in the Destiny thread, upgraded my PS4 to a 2TB drive.  The process is very easy, though I do wish there was a "copy all saves for all games" option in the storage management menus.  The hardest part of the process was getting my new drive out of its enclosure as I had purchased an external drive to cannibalize as it was on sale for pretty cheap. 

The other advantage to grabbing the external drive is I should be able to put the enclosure back together with the old PS4 500GB drive and get an external drive in the process too, so that helps offset the already small cost to upgrade.

So my controller grip is peeling and I have the PS protection plan.  I called support and they say it is covered, but you have to send the controller in to them and they have to verify it was not tampered with and they send you a new one.  2-3 weeks turn around time!!! 

Anyone know if they have addressed the issue if I just go buy a new one?

I saw the white ones in a store the other day, they looked good.  I think the controllers are much improved, my new one has no squeaking at all and the sticks feel like they aren't covered anymore, but instead are made of the grip material. 

Also, now that pre-loads are the standard for new releases, I don't think I'll ever buy a disc game again.  It's so nice to just have it ready to go on release day without having to go outside and worry about bears or lions!

Got a controller back from Sony to replace the one I sent in.  Seems to work great.

Well, my nearly seven year old PS3 Metal Gear Solid Special Edition died yesterday right after my wife finished watching a blu-ray.  I was just going to buy another one, but decided not to since they are still close to THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS!  Just can't see myself paying that much for a last gen console, so I'm picking up a PS4 next Friday.  Would really love to get a Diablo Ultimate Evil bundle, but haven't seen any online.  That being the case, I'm thinking about getting the Destiny bundle.  Don't know much about the game though, plus white really wouldn't be my first choice.  I'll admit I didn't plan on buying one for at least another year, so I know nothing about either.  Any current PS4 owners and Destiny betas players care to comment?  I've heard the game is mainly focused on PvP, which I could give a shit about.  I've also heard that there's a campaign you can play coop, which would really be more my style.  If it's main focus is PvP I think I'll just skip it.

It's pretty much a direct mix of Halo and Borderlands 2.

It's very co-op focused, although being Bungie, they still have a good strong PvP with they way the even out levels in PvP, so that it doesn't affect the PvE. When people join PvP, their levels even out, and their weapons only matter for the type of weapon and the perks the weapon has.

This lets them keep the PvE loot interesting.

If you liked either game I listed above, this game is worth a look. However, you also have to like MMOs a bit, since this game is an MMO style game in the way missions and such are done. The story won't be a concise narrative, instead expect a bigger world that expands over time.

They've also really tweaked the PvI so that when you're PvE and you find that you're PvS is more PvQ you can back out to a PvY and PvO on the PvB or PvM integrated PvU.

Get the Destiny one because white PS4 > black PS4. Also, it'll make a certain staff member cry since he wants one SO badly.

Looks like I can cash in about a third of my Delta Frequent Flyer miles and get a PS4.  Debating whether I want to or not, as there's nothing out at the moment that I'm really dying to play.

Seriously though, if you have a good gaming pc, you can probably hang back a bit as the console exclusives (on both sides) are more commonly brought to PC then they were in the PS3/360 days.

The PS4 exclusives aren't, at least not among the AAA titles. You're not going to see Killzone, Infamous, Driveclub, The Order, Little Big Planet 3 or Bloodborne on PC, to name a few AAA titles that are either already out, or will be within the next few months.

Yep, even Bloodborne is published by Sony, so it's much less likely to come to PC, or at least will take a while to make the transition (Like Mass Effect 1).

Although that does mean if the current and upcoming crop of exclusives doesn't interest you, and you already have a good gaming PC, then you can definitely hold off.
