So basically, Microsoft brought a knife to a gun fight and Sony walked away laughing.

I've already placed a pre-order on Amazon with release day shipping in case there's a shortage. For $399, it's hard to argue with the price. Changes this time around, is that Playstation Plus will be required for online multiplayer. But the value of PS+ is incredible. I've had zero issues paying $49.99 per year for it, and the games more than pay for themselves via the subscription. You also get a free Drive Club, a full retail, launch PS4 game.

Microsoft's used games policy, required internet check-ins every 24 hours look ridiculous in contrast to Sony's traditional used games model, and no DRM authentication model.

Coming in 2014 sometime, Sony will begin streaming PS3 games to PS4 via their Gaikai service, which will then extend to PSOne and PS2 games, and perhaps even PSP and Vita games.

Anyone joining me early on with the PS4?

Sounds good, but even at $399 I will most likely not be getting the PS4 on release date.  With that said, I'll be getting NCAA14 and Madden14 for PS3 (and most likely PS3 only).

I read the Microsoft One stuff too and Sony should have a leg up already because of it.

So with the requirement for PS Plus for online multiplayer I guessing that applies to Madden Online Franchise and NCAA Online Dynasty.  So basically PS4 Online won't be free anymore.  I guess free couldn't last forever, but $50 a year isn't bad I guess.

Btw, it looks like Microsoft is reversing its stance on the constant internet connection and rental/used game policy.  I guess they read the writing on the wall and saw that their sales were going to be seriously compromised.

As attractive as the $399 price is, I did my due diligence to add up all the added costs of buying a console to see how deep I'd get. 

PS4 CostPrice
Console $399.99
Eye Peripheral $59.99
Extra DualShock 4 $59.99
Game - Madden 25 $59.99
Game - Assassin's Creed IV $59.99
Game - Drive Club $  -  
Sales Tax (Nebraska)6%
Total $678.35

I use a website called SmartyPig to take the money out of my account and put them into different savings goals for numerous large purchases/vacations. That way I don't have access to the funds until I'm ready, and then won't have to resort to credit cards or anything. I'll have $700 saved up by mid-August earning a little interest. Then again, I also don't have kids, wives, and responsibilities to really worry about. Double-Fisting

The Microsoft reversal of DRM is incredible for consumer rights. But man does it show incredible weakness by Microsoft to say, "This is the future. Get on board, we worked hard to provide these features and stick by them." Then turn around and cave go back to the way it was. Sony's rising sales forecast must've really shook them.

Im not very smart with technology so a lot of the specs don't really matter much to me. But the $399 price is a lot less than I assumed it would be. Given that I only play like 1 game (this year 2 if I can join the NCAA league) I am going to hold off and buy PS4 next year. The game capturing stuff really intrigues me though and I think it's smart and funny that Microsoft backtracked on a lot of their proposals since the public outcry was intense. Either way, I am settled into a new city with a new job and stuff and ready to play some MADDEN!!!!!!!!!!!

The PS4 release date is rumored to be revealed next week in Germany at GamesCom.

IGN
GameSpot

Rumors are swirling around November 13th and as late as December 13th. WIth less supply issues, I'm expecting the earlier dates.

Not really to be honest.  Amazon had release day bundles out there a couple weeks ago, but looks sold out. Gamestop appears sold out too. Mom and pop shops, and big box retailers like Wal-Mart, etc may still have bundles.  The launch lineup isn't amazing, but there's some big names to consider.

Amazon Base+Bundles (Bundle includes 1 game: Battlefield 4 w/ PS Plus card; Killzone w/ PS Plus Card; Knack; Watch Dogs)
Gamestop Base Console 
Gamestop Bundle - Madden (DriveClub (2 versions?); Knack; Battlefield 4; Call of Duty Ghosts; Killzone)

Really cool feature announced by Sony today at GamesCom. You will be able to simultaneously stream Music Unlimited's service while playing games. The PS PLus price for Music Unlimited is a great deal over paying $10 per month for Spotify or Google or any other service. The service also works on computers, phones, tablets, etc.  Might have to give them a try now.

$41.99 per year

A new streaming option was announce today. Users can now stream with twitch. I used my PS3 on twitch, and SquirrelHunter pointed out it looked pretty decent at the end of a random pick-up game vs mustard. The other option is UStream, which people were not impressed with.

If you want to fill up that 500 GB harddrive before you even own the game, you can pre-order the digital versions of these games.  I'm too much of a sucker for the physical cases on major titles though. You get bonuses for pre-orders as well.

Playstation Blog
Day 1 Patch
Internet access is required for your first DVD/Blu-Ray movie
Blog wrote:
The system software update 1.50 is approximately 300 MB, and will include the following features:


  • Remote Play
    Users will be able to access PS4 titles displayed on their living room TVs and play them on a PS Vita system over Wi-Fi networks by using PS4 Link (Depending on network environment or titles, remote play performance may vary outside of the home). We anticipate that most PS4 titles will be playable on the PS Vita system through Remote Play. The latest PS Vita system software version, to be released soon, will be required to use PS4 Link.


  • Second Screen
    Users can use the PS4 Link application for the PS Vita system, and PlayStation App for iPhone, iPad, and Android-based smartphones and tablets, to use these devices as second screens in supported titles. PlayStation App has the ability to enable users to interact with games with their mobiles devices. For example on The Playroom, a title pre-installed in all PS4 systems that requires PlayStation Camera, users can draw pictures on their mobile device screens and flick them towards the TV. The images then appear as a 3D object within the game.


  • Record, take screenshots, and upload gameplay effortlessly
    The PS4 system provides dedicated, “always on” video encoding systems that enables seamless uploading of gameplay. Users can share their epic triumphs by simply hitting the Share button on DualShock 4, take screenshots or scan through the last 15 minutes of gameplay, tag it and return to the game—the video uploads as the user plays. At the PS4 system’s launch in North America, users will be able to share their images and videos with friends on Facebook and screenshots with followers on Twitter, though users will need to sign up for individual accounts to use Facebook and Twitter.


  • Broadcast and spectate gameplay 
    The PS4 system also enhances social spectating by enabling users to broadcast their gameplay in real-time to game fans around the globe, using Ustream and Twitch live internet streaming services (users will need to sign up for individual accounts to use Ustream and Twitch). There are two ways for users to view live broadcasts. First, the Live from PlayStation application on PS4 aggregates streams from all PlayStation users. Second, users can spectate friends’ PS4 gameplay from PCs, and applications such as Ustream, Twitch, and browsers, which are installed on their mobile devices. These applications can be easily started up via PlayStation App, and users can also use these applications to post comments to gameplay broadcasts. Furthermore, users with PlayStation Camera can stream camera images and microphone sounds along with their live gameplay broadcast.


  • Play as you download
    This feature enables users to play supported digital titles as they are being downloaded. The time it takes to begin playing will vary depending on game data size and network environments, and not all titles will support this feature When a game is purchased, users can start playing after PS4 downloads a portion of the data, while the rest of the game is downloaded in the background during actual gameplay. Games may be downloaded in stand-by mode.


  • Multi log-in
    A maximum of four users can log-in to a single PS4 system simultaneously. These players can use their own save data to play games, and also earn trophies on their own Sony Entertainment Network accounts even when playing a multiplayer game together on a single PS4 system.


  • Party (Voice chat)
    By using the Mono Headset bundled with the PS4 system, users will be able to chat with up to eight friends enjoying different applications or games. Furthermore, users can use Party to chat between PS4 and PS Vita systems.


  • Face recognition and voice commands
    Users with PlayStation Camera will be able to register their facial image onto their PS4 system, and login to their system using facial recognition instead of DualShock 4. Furthermore, users can use either the microphone of the Mono Head set connected to DualShock 4, or PlayStation Camera to navigate through the PS4 home screen (PlayStation Dynamic Menu) with voice commands to start up games and shutdown the system, among other features; please refer to PS4’s online manual for recognizable voice commands.


  • Background music player
    Users can enjoy gameplay while listening to music in the background with Music Unlimited, a cloud-based digital music service. Users can also voice chat with friends while listening to music. Learn more about Music Unlimited here.


  • Online Multiplayer
    PlayStation Plus members will be able to play PS4 titles online with other players via the network. PS Plus makes it easy for members to join available online multiplayer matches in a variety of ways, including the ability to easily join a game from a live stream broadcast or Party voice chats.


  • Blu-ray Disc and DVD player
    Users can enjoy not only gaming on their PS4 system, but also Blu-ray and DVD video contents. When using for the first time, users must connect to the internet to activate this feature.

Some features will not be available at launch, such as “suspend/resume mode” which is a feature that keeps the PS4 system in a low power state and promptly takes users back to their game. We will provide additional information about system software update version 1.50 and features available at the PS4 system’s North America launch, and features that will be available after launch, in the near future.

Helluva deal before Black Friday even.  I've yet to pre-order a game, so this is a tremendous offer. I know I'm getting AssCreed and Knack. It's the 3rd game that's a bit more difficult to choose from. Killzone, NBA 2K14, or Madden? Hmmmm

All your questions answered by Sony.

Sony Blog - The Ultimate FAQ for North American Release

The news does bring some...downsides to the console that Sony has been quiet about. Doesn't hurt things in my eyes, but at the least, the console does have some limitations. For those that don't read the entire FAQ, a couple sites posted the biggies...

Joystiq - No YouTube Uploads. You're required to upload to Twitch/UStream. Twitch does allow you to archive recordings and then transfer to youtube if you so please.
Polygon - No media server streaming. A rarely used, cool feature on PS3 is streaming your music/video files straight from your computer. That is no more.
Polygon - No external hard drives. Period.

Polygon - Cross-Platform Play
Interesting news, PS3 and PS4 can technically support cross-platform play...Microsoft said it's impossible because of the architecture. You won't see it, but developers actually have the ability. So should a non-greedy developer unlike EA make a shooter unlike Battlefield 4. PS3 players can shoot PS4 players if they wanted.

Someone did math. That's never a good sign...

Boy Genius Report - Hard Drive storage limitations.

With the advancement in game capabilities on the new systems, hard drive space will be tight if you opt not to pick up a physical copy of the game you want. (I wouldn't download Killzone if I were you) A 500 GB hard drive can average 12 full, retail size games total. Don't forget about save files, and those little digital only games that take up space.

Freebies!
If you're an early adopter of the PS4, Sony added a few perks for buyers. No way a deal maker, but more of a nice touch.

Playstation Blog:
>> $10 Playstation Store Credit (No restrictions)
>> 30 Day Music Unlimited trial (New subscribers only)
>> 30 Day Playstation Plus trial (New subscribers only (poopy))
