I kept thinking I would, then I wouldn't, then I would, but to be honest, I think I'm going to wait until next year when it might be reduced slightly.

400 for the console and a game?! Seems a bit steep to me.

Is anyone else waiting? They just announced Walking Dead Season 2 for PS3, and I have a load of games I haven't even touched yet, so I think 'Ghosts' will be my final PS3 pre-order.

Getting it day one. I have the bundle with 2 controllers, the camera & Killzone preordered with Amazon for 430 which I think is a very good price. Also getting BF4, Ghosts & FIFA but I'm going to get my wife to put by either Ghosts or FIFA for a Christmas present.

I'll also sell Killzone and put my money towards either the new Need For Speed or Knack.

Yeah i'm also waiting till next year before getting one, once I have built up some games in plus and the retail games are under 30 quid each.

Also the launch lineup for me is pretty poor, not really anything I would want now that drive club has been delayed.

I'm still getting it Day 1 as Killzone, Knack, NfS, Resugun and Contrast will be enough to get started, although I am very disappointed that Warthunder isn't coming out at launch as promised.

I agree. I also think that bearing in mind they're still letting PS3 users subscribe for another for Plus, that they have to keep providing content for PS3 subscribers - otherwise if they stop, you've paid a year sub for nothing. This means that I may as well make use of the PS3 whilst they are still providing games for it. They've just given 2 newish games away, so no doubt we're going to see more newish titles soon.

With Xmas on the way, I think we'll also see another PSN sale, so will make the most of that too.

The games I want are also being released on PS3 anyway - i.e. Ghosts and MGS5, and with the PS4 being new, I doubt the graphics will be THAT much different.

Yeah - I am getting it day 1. I am going for the Killzone bundle from Shop-to. Not really sure that I will use the camera that much, but I wanted a second controller etc. I should be getting Knack at launch too and the PS+ games which look pretty cool. Will probably put down the tenner to upgrade COD too. My xmas game will be Ass Creed 4, which looks great.

Disappointed that Planetside 2 has slipped to 2014 but Killzone and COD should keep my bloodlust satisfied...

Really? A native 1080p PS4 game will look a millions of times better than a sub-HD PS3 game.

I'm getting PS4 with COD and BF4 for 495. Might buy NFS too, not sure yet.

Watch the Assassins Creed 360 versus PS4 comparison video. "A million times better" is not something I would use to describe the difference. Marginally better seem more appropriate.

I did exaggerate quite a bit but you can't take a true comparison from a video imo

EDIT: Likewise the difference for BF4 between generations is huge.

Oh no, I'm now having a look at PS4's again!

Is there a bundle for a PS4 and Ghosts?

I guess I'm looking at no less than 400 right?

Is at Shopto because that's the bundle I'm getting.

Agree with you on BF4. I watched gameplay from El Presador play on the 360 and it looked crap! PS4/X1 look far superior but PC still had the edge

Heads up to anyone who wants a PS4 but hasn`t pre-ordered...

Apparently John Lewis aren`t taking pre-orders on the PS4. They are getting them in stock though so there`s a chance they`ll be available there on launch day.

397 Delivered for a PS4 and Ghosts from Amazon.

Can't find it anywhere cheaper to be honest.

Hopefully mine will arrive on day one from Game with Killzone and Battlefield.
Still a bit down about watch dogs not being out until next year as well as drive club not being available on PS+.

I'm getting one for the family but I doubt I'll get much of a look in with a gaming addicted wife and teenagers in the house.

I was planning on getting a 2nd one just for me at some point but that's on hold now as mp3 playback is a must for my personal use. Maybe I'll build my 1st new pc in 9 years instead.

I hope I am getting it on day 1 but will just have to wait and see as I ordered late (early September) so guess it depends how much stock they (Zavvi) get for day 1. I went through a weird phase with PS4, much earlier in the year (May/June) I pre-ordered at Toys R Us (they were 10 less than the rest) but then cancelled it a couple months later dismissing it as being frivolous and unnecessary, but then I saw that Zavvi offer 5% off first orders so with the ~18 off I just about managed to justify it, also reasoned that as a Plus user it will help me get more out of my sub, especially since Sony seem to be cutting back on PS3 content of late (only two games per month now).

Yeah waiting here unless I come into money. Last ps3 games for us are bf4, lego marvel and fifa 14. That is unless some ps3 bargains start appearing then no doubt will snap them up.

I'm waiting until March/April next year, there's more than enough on the PS3 to keep me going until then.

I was going to but after DS article about launch day games has left me with some trepidation.
No mention of DC Universe Online, Warframe for USA and no mention of EU release slot.

Same boat - although I am pretty sure I will as I have the game gift card ready.
