What seems to be the general consensus in usa of the ps4 release. Good, bad ?

I have read myself of a few faulty units but it is the net and it is generally the bad side you read.

Have read the save video as your playing feature is saving without sound on bf4 at least.

Its been on sale a tiny bit over 12 hours on the east coast and just over 9 hours on the west coast

The first day of sales isn't even over yet, i'd say it will be at least another day or two before we can even get a general consensus of first impressions

I get what you mean, but would you really trust those opinions, i mean 99% of people who are queuing up at midnight are going to love it

Are people really going to buy a console with games costing $500-600 in total and then not at least try to convince themselves that they like it

Personally i'm giving it the weekend then i'm watch people on youtube and see their honest opinions once the dust has settled

They're all too busy playing it to post comments!

It was quite quiet on GAF and stuff. I put it down to people playing.

The better comments seem to be in the individual threads for different things and games in terms of what they think of it.

I'd say that things are pretty good. People playing games that they'd been playing the day before on 360/PS3 are so much better.

Remote Play feedback has been good, which was the only feedback I was looking for. I've played some games already and I know we're going to get good graphics but what no one knew would be how well that actually performs and people have been happy so I can't wait to play Knack in my bed!

Some folks are playing their PS4 games on twitch etc. That's a good way to get a look at it.

Thanks for that. Just installed the app. Some guy is waiting fifa 14 installing 26 mins to go.

These installs are going to be a pain imo

If you have the camera, you can hold the pad at your chin and it'll pick up your face to show in any streams you do. You can watch me going mad when I get destroyed playing BF4! lol

It's not all direct. Some people use a capture card to capture the PS4 footage and place it amongst other stuff like their webcam of them playing etc etc.

It's to be expected at a launch unfortunately (the reason I never preorder hardware) that's mass production for you, there are always dodgy systems out there. It's probably a few percent of users having issues, IGN say 4%. They were asked about this on the Giantbomb livestream, and they said that 4% is a low number, and a consumer electronic launch normally has 3-5% failure. Hopefully Sony have a system in place to replace the faulty units.

I don't really understand why a faulty unit would make someone give a 1 star review anyway. I mean, I got a Vita in Feb, charged it for a few hours only to find that the touch screen didn't work. I got it exchanged and I love the system, I'd give it 4 stars personally. The problem with things like this happening at launch, is that there might not be any stock to exchange it with.

That's rough, I would be pretty upset if i'd waited in line for hours and then it didn't work. It will get sorted, It's just dissapointing for people. I suppose that's why people have gone to Amazon to give bad reviews.

I think it probably works differently but folk are complaining you don't get friend online notifications and also doesn't tell you when they were last online.

On the plus side that streaming to twitch is freaking awesome. Just how my net can handle it.

Heh - It is good to have the US beta test the machine for us.

I do hope the issues are resolved though. I would be super p*ssed if I had to wait two weeks due to faulty machine.

The twitch stuff is great - was watching @yosp playing Knack the other day.

I like the look of the UI - it seems really quick and responsive. Very easy to jump in and out of games etc. One disappointment was that you still have to synch trophies.

Not very good first impressions from what I've seen so far. But it's still early, give it time.

Xbone customers will feel smug if the new Xbone is running smoothly but PS4 peeps have to wait 2 weeks to send it back! Sony are slacking.
