Should be tons of fun.  Wish I had the money to get one cuz I work Friday AM and I'm off the weekend.  On top of that, the wife is out with her girlfriends Sat night so I'd be all over it.  Guess I'll just have to live vicariously thru Zak and his first impressions when he gets to post them.

Ugh, so wanna just cave and buy one.  Got my bonus check but I'm using it for xmas gifts and putting a chunk away for just in case.  Might be able to dip into that once we file our taxes while where waiting for the return to come. 

I should just tell everyone to get me like $25-50 in cash or gift cards instead of gifts for xmas and my birthday, that way I could probably have one by like the first week of January.

Nice. I'll pick up the PS4 in the spring. Just in time for MLB The Show. Are you picking up the XB1 at some point?

What store is selling them for $650? I was trolling the web for PS4s in the local area and everyone is sold out, like I figured.

Greatness is at hand and so far I am blown away. Just a couple of quick notes for those interested. First off I love it. The UI is fast and fluid. And while the pause/suspend function is supposedly not available at launch it works amazingly well. I can play BF4 and swap out to the dash, then swap back to the game immediately, even in the middle of an online match. The only catch is you can't swap between multiple games. Basically it works but with only one game at a time. Switching games requires one of them to be "closed". But otherwise I can swap out to the dash, set up a chat, brows the online store and switch back to the game all in the middle of an online match. It's very slick. 

Also, DL's still work in the background, even during online play and DL's work simultaneously for multiple apps. Not just one app DL's at once. I have a bunch of stuff DLing right now all with various levels of completion. It was really cool to get back from playing BF4 online to find Resogun was fully DL'd and ready to play. 

Speaking of. bF4 is pretty amazing. Aside from some server issues that you get from any launch the game runs amazingly well and looks fantastic. 

Also of note is that my Astro A30's work perfectly fine with the PS4. Because they are technically a wired headset they plug directly into the controller and the PS4 has an option to run all sound through the headphone jack. This means I get game audio and chat right through the controller. Essentially it makes any wired headset fully wireless and ready to rock (aside from being tethered to the controller). Big win there. No sh1tty earbud mic required and no waiting for an update to use my nice headset. 

The controller is also really nice. Big upgrade from the DS3. It's better in every way and finally on the same level as the 360 controller. It feel nicer to hold, has great triggers and the analog sticks are much better. I still think the 360 is probably the best controller ever made but the DS4 is not far behind. Great controller.

All in all it's an amazing piece of hardware and I am more pleased that I could have hoped. That is all for now. Feel free to ask any questions you can think of and I will try to answer them. (When I am not gaming lol)

Is the controller quite a bit wider with the analog sticks separated by more distance? The controller was one of the main things that kept me from playing my PS3, but the PS4 one looks much better.

Yes. It is wider, sticks are further apart and much tighter. Feel very precise and have good grip too. It's also a little heaver than the DS3.

I'm not thread-jackin, just sharing.

So, without a pre-order to back me up I headed to one of the handful of Best Buys that were hosting a midnight launch.  I arrived with my Wendy's bag of spicy chicken in one hand and high hopes in the other.  From my car I noticed two big signs by the front doors of "The Box".  One reads Pre-Order, the other just says Next Gen Console Line.

Looking at the line where I was headed... there were 2 people. A mom and dad who were holding the spot until their son arrived after work.  It turned out that being number 2 inline for a PS4 paid off.  I got my hands on a PS4, 2nd controller, PS Camera, Assassin's Creed, BF4, a couple years of PSN and some PlayStation Swag to take home.  Waiting for 6 hours was well worth it.

Box opening was a little sad to me.  A PS4, power cable, controller, mini usb for charging and an ultra lame ear-bud/mic.  Like the kind you get with a mobile phone but less nice.  Hooking it up in the man-cave was painless though.  Power, ethernet, charging cable.. power on.

The controller is cool. L2/R2 triggers are comfy, L1/R1 buttons are firm and responsive, the joysticks have a good texture to them, the touch pad works really well in Assassin's Creed in the map navigation.  I'm not sure I "like" the light bar on the controller, but I've not had exposure to any benefits to warrant a review.. it just glows.

I've been on the 360 for a couple years now and being greeted with the familiar blue rift was a little heartwarming.  A small download completed faster than most micro transactions and I was back to the main menu.  I Registered my PSN account to the system through a controller based QWERTY menu and started installing BF4.  While that was doin' its business I redeemed two one-year PSN cards and set up my daughters sub account.  All sub-accounts appear to have access to all the DLC and software installed on the console which is nice. I had the same experience multitasking free downloads and playing BF4 at the same time as Interceptor. 

If you like gaming this generation won't disappoint.

Xbox1... c'mon Forza.
