Now I’ll actually buy it! It’s so hard going back to the 360.
I know it’s not totally game related but I just bought the 32gb Surface RT from the Black Friday deal and for a 10" tablet for $199, that’s a hell of a deal!
Prices vary by region but the percent discounted stays the same no matter what region you are in.
Thanks alot! I’ve never used the web setup before (had this remote for a loooong time now) and the desktop software is definitely missing some features.
Yup, my PS4 came with a crap ton of inflated plastic shipping protectors, all of which were on one side of the box. Absolutely no cushioning “underneath” the PS4 box.
I’ve looked all over the Harmony 7.70 software that I use for the 650 and I can’t find anything about changing the number of sends. Only setting I found was for input lag, which didn’t help at all.
That’s a really interesting point. I never thought about the villains in Dexter or Stargate, other than that they were good villains. I guess it’s just a part of video game criticism to bring this up as an issue, although I haven’t played the game to see how tactfully these villains have been handled.
I think the people saying it sucks using just the controller mean that it’s hard to find certain things using just the controller (although it will only become easier as people learn where things are). Quick example – you can search around to find where to redeem a code (in the store BTW) or you can just say “Xbox, redeem code”.
Yes it is, the whole cord wouldn’t be jutting out.
Example of an cord plugged into the back:
How my DS4 currently charges:
Thank god! I was thinking I’d have to do custom buttons for everything. I want to hook my TV into the console, but I’d rather use the remote for changing channels, volume, etc.
You leave it plugged in the back of the console with the other end next to the front. Easy, clean, and doesn’t screw with entertainment center aesthetics.
My biggest issue with the design is the placement of the USB ports in the front. They make this beautiful console that Polygon’s own review said disappears into your entertainment center…..except when you need to charge your controller. Now I have an ugly USB cable jutting out the front. It doesn’t make any sense, especially when the USB ports are currently only used for charging controllers or a Skylander portal.
Works both ways though. There is no Playstation App for Windows Phone.
Overall, I’m liking it but yeah, I kind of wish I could have patiently waited for the first hardware revision.
I used my own cable and although I didn’t see any bent pins inside the port, my HDMI cable doesn’t fully go in and is a little loose. I haven’t had any display issues yet though. It just seems that the build quality on the PS4 is pretty poor overall. When a game is installing, the console is super loud, not only from the disc tray spinning but it also vibrates my entire shelf, amplifying the sound. After playing for a while the fan will kick on and is quite noticeable too.
Yup it’s kind of strange when he said reviewers had to cram their playthroughs and write ups…..when Sony were the ones who set up the review events and embargoes.
Battery life on the controller is really disappointing. The console is beautiful and fades in to your entertainment center, except that you have to have your USB cable sticking straight out the front with a glowing controller attached to it.
I’ll be picking up a charging cradle, I suppose, or maybe plug it in to the back of my Xbox One.
That sounds awesome. Seems like it is definitely next gen’s Geometry Wars at launch.
