Well the PlayStation 4 drops tonight at midnight or 8 am at some stores, so I think it's time to give it it's own thread, and given my username I felt it was only right for it to be started by myself.

Who's getting it at midnight/morning?

I wish I could, but I know it is best to wait till I get done with this heavy load of school and pick it up for the summer.

Post pictures and what not if you get it! Would love to see some of the lineups if any of you can manage to snap some of those.

I was excited for it but with all the delays I am glad I didn't preorder it as every game I am interested in is not a launch title.

Honestly what launch titles are available that are supposedly "big" with everything being delayed? And the supposed hardware issues being reported?

Only big title is Kill Zone.

Yeah, there have been a couple of reports of DOA units, including IGN, but likely won't know if this will be a widespread issue until it the units actually start flying out the door and into peoples hands.

I'm waiting for a year anyways since it always takes a while for games to take full advantage of what the new technology can offer.

There was apparently a workaround published that fixed the HDMI issue.

Oh good. Just checked out IGN and they're saying that some who've tried the reported fixes are still having issues, so who knows. Hopefully for Sony it's a real small percentage.

It's all over the place, man. Not sure, why you didn't know.

Brother is getting it tomorrow and BF4. I'll be on my account and playing BF4 in no time I suppose.

Although, I only really get to play when my brother is sleeping or not home....because I'm assuming he'll be playing it a ton.

I'm probably getting it within the month, but I don't need it right away.

Just drove past Best Buy & Future Shop in Richmond, combined 10 people between the stores. (8 AM opening)

I expected more to be there by midnight, but I guess given it's a weekday that'll affect it.

Looks like Sony has said so far it's 0.4% of consoles with issues, it looks like a majority are dying during the download (Not surprising at all considering how many people are probably going for it), or they have a faulty HDMI jack.

If you have a PS4, check the HDMI jack before you put a cable in. Look to see if there's a raised piece of metal inside, if there is, try to flatten it out and it should slide in and work fine. If you run into a bricked one that just won't work, you might have to exchange. There's things you can try to do, like try to take out the HD and enter safe mode, but I'd probably just exchange it since they're doing it for free. So yeah. Check the HDMI slot of the ps4 before you try to plug anything in. You're apparently able to flatten out a piece of metal that's sticking out and causing the problem.

Got mine up and running now. If anyone wants to play some Battlefield 4 add rozzy12233.

IS there no CD functionality? That kinda sucks. Gotta admit I haven't really looked into the two consoles as I'll be buying the ps4 regardless, possibly both.

I decided quite a while ago that I'll be getting the PS4. However, I can't see myself getting it until late next year or possibly even 2015. Current gen is still really good and there isn't enough of a library to justify upgrading at this point.
