@PlayStation: Q: Can I get inFAMOUS Second Son tonight at midnight on PlayStation Store? A: Yep! More info on the Forums: http://t.co/IV5jnGdQEC
PST.  So sucks for us east coasters.

Sucks for us reasonable time keeping west coasters too slywink

Yeah I wish my ps would start downloading as I sleep. Isn't it supposed to do that anyway?

Apparently it will in April. Which doesn't do a lot of good for us right now.
Too bad. It seems to do this now whenever I buy something from the PSN and it's installed when I get home.

What's your secret?!!??
On PSN, it's a menu under your account name, called download list.  From there, you have whatever Sony systems listed below and can add downloads to each from your purchase list.  in the Vita and PS4's case, it downloads as long as the network connection is online.  the PS3 checks in at a time you set and does the downloads then or when you power the system on next.  

there's also this.  

Hmm maybe if I bought something from store this would happen at that time even if I wasn't on the PS4. I think tonight it won't just start downloading my preorder while I sleep though.

that's what I signed up for, so that's what I'm happy to get.  a solid superhero game by a studio whose games I've enjoyed.  

now, if this were The Division, I'd be disappointed that the dev didn't go the extra mile to make it everything the trailers seemingly promised.  sadly, I now have some doubts about that one after the noticeable drop in detail on next-gen versions of Watch_Dogs.  

Division is next gen only thought right?  So maybe it won't suffer like Watch Dogs has.  (I assume it's last gen holding us back, Obi-Wan style!)

I'll still buy it on XB1, unless the graphical difference is amazing. I trust MS's network/server infrastructure way more than Sony's.
until these last two weeks of delayed PSN updates, I'd have said that Sony was rock-solid since the crash of '11.  even being different parts of the system, it dredges up bad memories of those months.  that being said, they've actually been pretty solid in the MP server realm and I've never had issues playing MP games on the PS4.

and yeah, I look forward to Titanfall 2, although more for the evolution of the series.  if they give me a full co-op campaign using those VR goggles, I'll be next to Pug pooping rainbows of happiness as that would be the closest we'll get to a Heavy Gear/Mechwarrior sequel in years.

I've had a great experience playing MP in BF4 on the PS4 and I never really did with any game on the PS3.

I've been out of the Thief game for a long time, but this entry feels very "Thief-y" to me.  The city is pretty annoying though and I feel like the non-connected areas revisit the old dark shadows gripe of lowest common system specs dictating how the game was designed.  Once inFamous is out I don't think I will play this much and will probably sell it off.

I have seen this posted on most entertainment news sites and I think it is neat but I am more surprised by how excited people are for any scrap of news.  Don't get me wrong, I am interested in the film but I remember watching the leaked trailer for Episode 1: The Phantom Menace and being so excited for it...then actually seeing it.  I think it scared me because I just can't believe this will be a great movie.  I hope to be wrong but I think I will just have to wait.

fwiw, the side missions and collectibles stretch that to about 10 hours.  admittedly in the same camp though.  

I'm somewhat torn on this myself.  I think I'll end up waiting as well, if nothing else to finally play Peace Walker.  

Sure do wish it was cheaper.  Polygon review (iirc) said it just felt like a cash grab.

* with that said I do have a $10 credit on PSN so maybe I'll still get it as I am interested.  Or I might go the used route on Amazon marketplace like I just did with Thief.

This blows. Isn't the reason for release dates is so everyone gets it all at once ? I have numerous friends on my list playing it now . Even some of you jerks. icon_wink
it's to protect the retailers not the consumer.  It's to ensure one doesn't have an unfair advantage over another.  You do usually see them allow them to start selling a game if one of them breaks the date,  but I guess the eBay thing isn't big enough.

That's right.  If brick and mortar stores start selling it, they might open it up, but event then it's unlikely digital will go early.  Sony still can't afford to piss off the retail markets.

At some point, however, this might change.  I could even see a day where either of these companies start a "get it first digitally" campaign.  With the time it takes to press discs, assemble the disc cases, bundle everything and ship them, digital could have games available weeks earlier.  When the companies are ready to move away from retail, they have this in their pocket.

Movies are already available digitally two weeks early in most cases now.

Any initial sales numbers yet?

I haven't seen anything official for US yet, but in the UK it's credited for increasing XB1 hardware sales almost 100%.

I have no doubt that TF will do well and will sell lots of copies and systems, but the article I saw on Joystiq said that it doubled the UK sales for 1 week, but I can't find numbers.  Did it sell 10k normally and now it sold 20k?  What about the number of sales EA has left on the table by not embracing Sony platforms?  Is it less than what MS paid them for console exclusivity?

The gaming gods were kind today. Walked into Target and they had one PS4 in stock. Gave my wife the puppy dog eyes and she relented after I impressed on her the utter rarity of this event (not really because I've seen them all over the place around here, but she didn't know that).

The Target lady was all excited and there were employees gathered around like I had come in to purchase the Mona Lisa or something. The girl who sold it to me was obviously a gamer because she was geeking out hard. If my wife had not been there I'm pretty sure she would have proposed.

When I told her I didn't want a game she looked shell-shocked. Then I told her I was waiting on Infamous. Her whole face lit up and she gave me the "fellow gamer telepathic gaze of total understanding."

I have a date night tonight so probably won't get to hook it up, but I'm all set for next week!

Sign up for PS+ and start downloading some games in the meantime!

$60.00 USD or more using the SEN Wallet between March 11th, 2014 and March 18th, 2014

you would need to buy something from the looks of it over $.01 as the game comes just under the cutoff.  in my case, I picked up Bit Trip Runner 2 for the Vita. 

When they've done these promotions in the past, Sony stated that if you're within a penny, you'll qualify for the offer.  I'd assume the same will hold true in this case.

Boo as I digitally pre-ordered inFamous when it first went on sale on PSN

ND released a statement:

Quote
Earlier this week we had to confirm the regrettable news that Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog.  She will be missed and as we stated before we appreciate the significant contributions that she has made to Naughty Dog and the industry in general.  We wish her the best.

However, we feel it necessary to clear up a very important point that was unprofessionally misreported when the story broke.  Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann were NOT involved in what transpired.  It was very upsetting to us that dozens of stories were run, linking back to the same hurtful accusations in the original report.  As co-presidents of Naughty Dog, we are responsible for all studio affairs.

Normally, we wouldnt respond to rumors and speculation on matters that are internal to Naughty Dog, but because the personal reputation of two of our employees is being damaged we needed to set the record straight.  There is nothing left to be said on this subject.  Now were going back to focusing on what we should making games.
