I’m not going to worry about it. Maybe that’s a bad decision on my part but I think it’ll be fine
It’s so weird that you mention that. I could have sworn I heard it too. I even moved it around a little near my ear to confirm it. No idea what this is. Either way, it doesn’t seem to be affecting the performance of my console in any way.
I agree completely. I actually sold digital cameras at Best Buy for a couple of years in college so I know the drill. Best Buy sales associates do not receive a commission, but there is still plenty of pressure from their supervisors to upsell. I know these guys were just doing their jobs and I have no hard feelings. I just posted this as a fun war story and maybe help people who are still waiting for their PS4 delivery to feel a little better!
I’ll be playing Killzone, AC4, Need for Speed, and the freebies. Thanks for putting this together!
FYI, I picked mine up around 7:30 a.m. EST and connected to the network without any issues at all. The day one patch downloaded via PS4 (not USB) took about a minute to download and another maybe 3-5 minutes to install and restart the PS4.
That’s dissapointing. I think I shared the opinion of a lot of people who weren’t too upset about Drive Club’s delay when I learned that Contrast was taking it’s place; a game that seemed better and more intriguing anyway. Now, I’m really going in with low expectations, so hopefully I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
I came here to say exactly this. So far I’ve purchased AC4, Killzone, and Need for Speed Rivals. Even with those games and the other freebies, I strongly suspect Resogun will see the most playing time for my friends and I this weekend.
This review was well-written and the negative points against the game were well-reasoned and articulated…. yet I am completely justifying my pre-order of this game based on the “Next Gen” section. I don’t see anything wrong with owning a mediocre FPS at the launch of a new console to act as a tech showpiece. Killzone should be held to a higher standard, and Arthur did a great job in explaining why it falls short of that standard, but I just want it to look pretty on my shiny new PS4.
Thank you for this fantastic article Russ. It’s been said before, but this is the reason I continue to visit Polygon. Keep up the great work!
It sounds like anyone who preordered a PS4 game a while ago is getting an e-mail from Amazon. Has anyone tried preordering a game since they announced the B2G1 promotion? If I were to preorder AC4 today, for example, would I get the same email? I think this would be better than trying my luck tomorrow during the 4-hour window when this sale is open to all Amazon customers who haven’t preordered any games yet.
I’m impressed. As someone who owns a 360 and PS3 but only preordered the PS4 this makes me a little upset I didn’t preorder both. I knew I’d eventually get both but this video makes me want an Xbox One now! I just hope it functions as smoothly in everyone’s living rooms as it does in the pristine demo environment. Either way, these next 2 weeks are going to be exciting.
