Now they're undergoing maintenance. At least it isn't just me, since I see a lot of people are having the same problems.

congrats spiddy

At least by the time I get to it all this should be fixed. That's the one bright spot of working so long tomorrow.

Eventually around 2:30 I was finally able to sign on. Played a couple matches of Killzone. For someone that has played it for a while it was a little hard getting used to the 3 class system. As far as I can tell, no guns from the past game are playable which makes me kind of sad, because I loved the main ISA gun from Killzone 1-3 (it is basically a M4). Combat is super smooth and there seems to be no weight to the weapons like previous games. Some will like that, some won't and as of now I'm indifferent to the change. Classic war zone is composed 5 modes instead of 7 as far as I can tell.

Scoring in FIFA is really hard.

Anyone besides me and spiddy get a PS4? Seems like this site has went dead the past three days. I can't talk about this stuff with my girlfriend because she doesn't care, so please get on here and talk to me!

I cancelled my preorder, but I'm having that launch-day regret that I anticipated getting after I cancelled it. Its really not that big of a deal, but I'm just bummed I don't have the shiny new toy that everyone else is playing with. We'll see how long I hold out. I almost bought one on Amazon last night when I saw they had them in stock... I am weak. Very, very weak!

You know what's great, having them give you free games right from the get go. I don't like shooters, but Resogun did seem fun. Then we get Contrast, and that DC Universe Online game. Plus if you've bought Flower or Sound Shapes you get those for free, and then there's the games you actually buy. I've got six games right now, kind of hard to pick which one to play.

Remote play looked great for Battlefield. Controlled great with no slow down. I started having internet problems again, but I'm blaming that on people like volvo who probably got their PS4's from the mail and all hooked them up at the same time. Just a theory.

One cool thing that people might not know, all three games I bought came with a 7 day trial for PS+. So I got 21 days from the games I bought, plus Sony threw in 30 days with the system. Plus, $10 for the store. Thought that was a nice gesture. They seem to be doing everything right this launch, minus connecting.

I played some Killzone campaign. Pretty interesting. Very open compared to the other KZ games I'm playing. Pretty fun, but I was a bit of a mess using the controls. Kept mixing up d-pad and touchpad stuff. Also I keep reaching for the start button and hitting the touchpad. Hard to unlearn what I've been doing for 15+ years I guess!

I finally got on PSN now (wouldn't connect earlier) and am downloading Resogun and Contrast. Pretty slow though.

For games like FIFA I'm kind of wishing I had the old controller. Like Trip kind of said and what Yoda said, "You must unlearn, what you have learned." Or something like that. On FIFA, just little ways I'd grip the controller when pressuring defenders feels awkward now. Killzone feels fine though, but I agree with the directional keypad stuff and then using the swipe screen. I messed up a lot because of it, which resulted in deaths.

I haven't downloaded the Warframe game yet. Is it a FPS?

I love Resogun so much. I have not been able to save all the humans in a level yet though.

Trip, you should have joined us in some Killzone.

I am also surprised how well that cheap little headset worked. Wasn't expecting to like it that much, but I think I may prefer it to that $50 sony blue tooth one.

Yeah, had a lot of fun with Neph and Bret on Killzone. It's a really good shooter as far as online is concerned. SP isn't perfect, but miles beyond what I played from 2. Skylanders is great so far. Visual leap looks really distinct over Giants, can notice it without having the two side by side like most current gen sequels. Also the swapping characters are absurdly fun.

My GameStop somehow didn't have enough PS4s to fulfill all the preorders so I think I got yelled at by angry customers more than I can handle tonight.. I understand why they're so upset but ugh yelling and cursing at me for something beyond my control isn't cool. I really don't want to go back to work tomorrow, it was a pretty horrible situation and I feel terrible Sad

Anyway, got my PS4 but it's still unopened. Hopefully I'll have time to hook it up and play tomorrow night or Sunday. Nice to see everyone here having fun with your PS4s though!

Yelling at employees is stupid. If anything you just say "well, that's annoying but obviously not your fault..."

I was out by 10 and in line for my preorder. How many preorders were you supposed to get Choco? My store had 30 and we got all 30 in, plus 10 leftovers to sell. I was in line next to a UPS loader, and he said there were 2 or 3 trucks just for the Gamestops around here alone.

I think Sony got some big bucks this launch. It seems like most retails got a lot of systems to sell, as opposed to the PS3 launch.

Very jealous. 29th November seems so far away!

I have the Killzone bundle pre-ordered and have bought Assassin's Creed 4. I learnt nothing from AC3!

Prices for PS4 games are fucked here in the UK. Everything is £50 ($80). It's significantly cheaper to buy US copies from Hong Kong (Play Asia) than to buy anything here.

No Xbone for me any time soon.

I played some more of Killzone's campaign and it is growing on me a bit since I have the handle on the controls and using the owl now. My friend came over and I was showing him what little games I have for it. I ended up playing the end of Chapter 4 where I had left off which worked as a pretty nice section to show off.

Do you find the graphics are noticeably better? Or just smoother?

I am downloading the freebies this morning..resogun and blacklight. Killzone has been a blast so far, but I have to agree that I will throw a freakin grenade trying to shoot someone all the time. There is a learning curb to the ps4. When some of you guys get on, add me.

As long as my brother in law isn't over I'll join.
