Anybody else playing Knack?  Want to be friends on PSN?  (once it comes up, of course)  

It seems like the collectibles are supposed to be much easier to get if you have friends to combine stuff with, and if you're just playing alone you're unlike to get more than 1/4 of the unlock/upgrade thingies.

Sure, add me, Teggygah. I'll probably try it out later tonight.

You can also play the iOS game to get parts if you have an iphone/ipad.

So, I'm sad to say that while the DS4 triggers are a huge improvement, they are not the perfection I was lead to believe by the previews. If I hold a 360 controller, my fingers naturally fall on the triggers. If I hold the DS4, my fingers naturally fall right between the R1 and R2 buttons. This means that I have to slightly stretch my fingers when using the triggers and it feels a little awkward. Maybe it's just the shape of my hands, but it was a bit of a bummer.

Oh, and Killzone SP is kind of hard. I need to learn how to play the game.

Well it's after 7 here and still not delivered.  UPS chat support says it's not lost and confirmed on truck, I'm not sure I believe him though.  May still show up tonight theoretically.  The kicker is it's been in my town since 10pm last night...

It's not uncommon for my UPS guy to be here around 7. As long as it's not FedEx you are good. I have had FedEx drivers run out of time a few times and fail to deliver. That has never happened with UPS, if it's on truck it shows up.

Cable *is* standard - micro-usb is the standard cable now - even Apple had to kowtow to it (EU union ruled that all new smartphones had to conform so people weren't tossing away perfectly good phone chargers simply because of the connector - that's the only reason you see iPhone adapters and IIRC they're forced to include it in EU countries).

Xbox One also uses Micro USB. I don't know if the DS4 transfers data through it though - the XB1 switches from wireless to wired when plugged in.

So not delivered UPS is terrible, they want to deliver it Monday.  I offered to go to the depot, 5 minutes from my house where it is located according to tracking, and get it.  "we're sorry sir it's not at that depot"  well why does your tracking site say that it is!  If UPS can actually figure out where it is, I will again see if I can just go pick it up tomorrow.  Also seeing if Amazon can update it for Saturday delivery.

Yeah there's a bunch of people on GAF with the same issue.  I'm hopeful I'll be able to pick it up tomorrow, it aggravates me that their tracking information is just a bunch of bullshit though.

sucks to hear that. 

I got it set up, saw that the PSN is only capable of updating the machine and could not let me sign in or create a new account, and played about the first 20 minutes or so of AC4, up through the first non-piratey sequence.  I may need to push through with AC3 or break down and watch the ending on youtube as it makes little sense.

game looks pretty damn awesome, but I can already see that the engine is a souped up current gen.  it's nice, but not wow-worthy.  I've got KZ and will try that and BF later.  I can already see that pirates and assassins is a great combo and will probably play the majority of this first. 

we decided to keep Lego Marvel out of circulation for the kids' xmas present, which is good as we already have one more gift covered, but bad as I was kind of looking forward to playing it. 

Still undecided on whether to keep NBA 2K14.  great reviews, but it's not my usual type of game.  really wish that I had NFS now instead of having to wait.

One thing I've noticed so far is that the PS4 is QUIET. I mean seriously crazily quiet. My ceiling fans make more noise than the thing does. No high pitched whine, no hum, no much of anything. If it wasn't for the light on the console's top you'd swear it wasn't even on.

I seeing increasingly large numbers of people on various websites experiencing a "blue light of death" with their new PS4 units. Some go bad after a few hours of play, others are bad right out of the box:

http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-Battlefield-Launch-Day-Bundle-4/product-reviews/B00DE2W5XG/ref=cm_cr_pr_top_link_1?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=byRankDescending


Any chance this is just software related, or does there indeed seem to be a large number of defective units in the first batch?

I haven't experienced any issues and have been impressed with PSN's performance. I downloaded Resogun, Blacklight, and a few apps quite quickly. I also played coop Resogun with voice chat and it was perfect. Very happy so far.

I heard that not only can you plug any regular headset into your controller but you can do the same with any pair of headphones and have the sound play through that rather than your TV. That is awesome. For the PS3 I bought a special headset with about a 3m cord to deal with the noise situation but it was such a pain to plug into the TV and unplug that I rarely used it. If I can just grab by JVC cellphone headphones that are lying on the couch next to me and plug them into my controller then that is pretty awesome.

To clarify, you're saying I can plug any headset into the controller, turn my receiver down and hear all game sound through the headset?  That is fantastic news.  Playing AC4 last night and hearing the f bomb dropped a few times concerned me a bit (6 and 3 year olds in the house).

PSN was rock solid for me last night as well.

If you have two controllers, can you plug headphones into both of them and use that for audio when watching a movie?  If the wife and I can do that instead of buying two expensive wireless headphones, that would be fantastic.
