Whos pre-ordered the ps4 ?
English

Anyone hoping to get theres before christmas ? Ive pre ordered but mine will be on the second batch apparently so should be before christams rather then on release date . I wonder what quality the blu ray player will be compared with a stand alone sony b/r player , or what you reckon it could be similar with , the 790?

RE: Whos pre-ordered the ps4 ?

People rate the PS3 Blu-ray player quite high.  I saw a big difference going to my Pioneer 71 though.  I would say there must be a good possibility that it might be better.  Hopefully reviews will cover that area.  I have seen quite a few good deals on the PS4 and have promised delivery before Xmas:

Guaranteed before Xmas.

Just preordered mine. The latest news of more games only running at 720p on the xbox finally swung it for me (will keep my 360 though, for the odd bit if halo nostalgia).

Amazon are saying its sold out for launch day but are promising "delivery before Christmas" so watch this space I guess.

For blu ray 1080p/24Hz pictures, I haven't found any difference between players at different price points, including the PS3. Check AV forums reviews of every blu ray player they test. In fact, PS3/PS4 benefits from a far superior processor than traditional blu ray players, as it's designed for gaming. The main issue I had with the PS3 was fan noise, necessitating me to buy a standalone player.

Yeah, I went for Killzone when I had to choose a few weeks back after Watch Dogs was delayed, but Assasin's Creed 4 does look good, so I may put that on the Christmas list. Really looking forward to Octodad - just love the idea!

I pre ordered back in May, but as Drive has been delayed until 2014 it'll probably go on eBay so someone who wants one on launch day can have it.

RE: Whos pre-ordered the ps4 ?

Hi gel

Just read that article, bit annoyed but I won't be cancelling my pre-order as I remember when I got my PS3 (the old fat type) on launch date it couldn't play blu-rays that well, films kept freezing at random points and needed a restart of the machine, It wasn't until the first update came along that it managed to play a whole film with out any problems.

Watched a live feed from IGN on youtube last night showing some of the major games available on release day and was very impressed.

Happy gaming to everyone. Smile
