    I've had my PS4 since the midnight launch and have no problems except for the controller (the thumbsticks wore out really quickly).  The warranty would have covered you had anything gone wrong.  With a new system there are MANY things that can go wrong, you may have prevented one but you have left yourself without the financial protection of a warranty should anything else go wrong.  Never void the warranty.  If you want to open your console wait until the warranty expires.

    What reports are you referring to? I couldn't find any about a significant number of PS4s failing.
    On point though, I think you made a mistake voiding the warranty a day after you got the console. I don't know anything about PS4s failing, so I can't say If you've actually fixed it, but If It should break, for whatever reason now, you're pretty boned, unless you happen to have an extra 400 Dollars lying around.
    If It had broke within the first year, or however long the warranty is, free fix. If It breaks now, expensive fix.

    I think we've got enough games to hold us over until January but that's me.
  5. CaptainKickass69 liked a post in a topic by SimplyMonkey in When will PS4's be back in stock   
    I have heard that they will be back in stock at some retailers by January, though that is just hearsay.  I think your best bet is to call your local game store or Walmart-like place and ask them when they are coming back in stock and see if you can reserve yourself one.  Best of luck with it.  It really is an awesome gaming machine.

  9. SimplyMonkey liked a post in a topic by Crazycrab in Who else thinks the Xbox Live Gold Paywall is BS? Angry Rant!!   
    I'll be honest here, the main reason I never bought an Xbox 360 at launch (or even to this day) was the fact that that you had to pay to play online.  As pissed of as am now that Sony are doing it to, PS+ does offer legitimate value and online multiplayer is pretty much the only thing locked behind that paywall so I'm prepared to forgive.  But for Xbox One It's damn near EVERYTHING!  Why the hell should I have to pay Microsoft to use a third party subscription service like Neflix?  Why should I have to pay to use free social services like Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Skype and so on.  Why the FUCK do I need XBL Gold to use DVR!!!!  Which is not an online function at all!!!
    YOU FUCKING DON'T!!!  This is BULLSHIT!!!!!!!
    My brother (who posts here under Shagger) was talking to me about getting an Xbox one down the line but unless they put this stuff in front of the paywall, which they of course won't I'm not and will never be interested.  Now I don't mean to offend or in any other way insult anyone who is buying the system I hope you have an excellent experience I really do, but what Microsoft are doing with this paywall is wrong.

    1) The UI is smooth and simple, the "news feed" is clustered but I don't find it a problem
    2) No, my system has been running for hours on end and it has not overheated.  Some have so I hear but that's down to faulty machines (that's just life I'm afraid)
    3) No, my console is fine as of right now
    4) I don't know, I myself know of nobody that has had a red line of death
    5) Killzone's multiplayer is great but the single player is meh.  Boring and repetitive in some parts.  BF4 currently doesn't work (stay tuned for updates) and I haven't played AC IV or NFS.  FIFA 14 is pretty good on next gen.
  11. Nasty Note liked a post in a topic by SimplyMonkey in Xbox One Raffle?   
    I'm a PS4 owner but want an Xbox One too.  Animosity to the Xbox is largely foolish.  People have their reasons but there is a lot of sheep mentality going on right now.  The Xbox One looks like it's going to be a fun system to own!
  12. Shagger liked a post in a topic by SimplyMonkey in Should I get the PS4 at launch or sometime next year? (UK)   
    I got my PS4 on launch night here in Canada.  While I've been hearing a lot about problems with the system I have not had a single one (yet, fingers crossed), nor have I heard of anyone I know personally having any problems.  So, I wouldn't worry too much about the hearsay about problems.  

    Anyway, now onto the games.  Killzone is an OK launch title, the single story isn't very good in my opinion however the multiplayer is a BLAST.  I love it and am really surprised by how much fun I'm having on it.  Battlefield 4 is amazing...when it works...which it isn't very well right now.  EA and DICE promised to have it fixed by next week but who knows.  I've been able to play on multiplayer a bit and it looks amazing and is a lot of fun.  FIFA 14 is much improved from the last gen version, with the gameplay being more fluid, the stadiums are more alive and the presentation is more realistic.  There is a slight graphical improvement, mainly noticeable in the players kits and the crowd in the stadiums.  

    I'm hopefully picking up NBA 2k14 this week and AC IV sometime next week.  PM me if you like and I can let you know how they are when I get them.

    My honest opinion is, I'm really glad I got the PS4 at launch.  It's a great console, the UI is smooth, fast and simple.  The free to play games of Blacklight and Warframe are high quality and the share function is really good (I never thought I'd use it as much as I am!).  At the end of the day though, it's up to you whether you wait or get one straight away!
  13. SimplyMonkey liked a post in a topic by ddrkreature in Finally!   
    I think the majority of people who have used the controller will agree that it is a huge improvement. And I have to agree as well.
    Only thing I have to ssay on it, though, is I'm not too big on the light bar personally, but it is neat to see the synchronization some games have with it. Like in Killzone, it acts as your health meter going from green to yellow to pulsing red (and solid red means dead ). not the best idea for an indicator as you'd never be looking at your hands but it's a cool little trick.

    Hi and welcome.
     
    There's a number of similar threads about this, but I'll give my thoughts. I am getting the PS4 at launch (U'm from the UK to) mostly because I already have PS+ and by spring most of the titles I want from the first year will be out. I think that the hardware issues experienced by the US market have been greatly exaggerated by fanboys and trolls and not that out of the ordinary for a new launch of a piece of hardware like this. I have to commend you for actually taking the time to find out first hand from people what there experience has been like, that's kinda why I'm here to. If the games you're really interested in don't come out 'till next year, I would wait, but it's down to you.

    I honestly think it was a bad move from Microsoft. Since it happened after the PS4 one, Microsoft will be accused of imitating.
    He should've done it with Angry Joe instead, given Joe full control of it, apologized for the knee-jerk reaction during the interview with Joe and hanged out with Joe, gaming with him on the Xbox One and taking feedback from him. That would stand out, as well as giving Major Nelson and Microsoft tons of points in my book, without looking like a follower.

    Felt a bit forced in the beginning and I personally felt it should've been all Francis with the Xbox One like in the Playstation one. Kinda felt like Major Nelson was a misplaced element in it.
    Personally, although I'm glad that Boogie is getting attention (he deserves it. I recommend anyone to watch his Draw My Life video), I think it would've been better if Major Nelson skipped this (he/MS will be accused of copying Sony anyways) and instead hooked something up Angry Joe, apologizing for his kneejerk response during that interview, hanging around gaming with Joe and talking about the Xbox One. That would've redeemed him and the Xbox One a lot in my eyes.

    I already preordered a PS4, I loved how beautiful it would be playing Killzone or AC: IV. How much fun Knack is, F2P games.
    Then I saw this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_4_games#PlayStation_4_games
    Binding of Issac remake, Sniper Elite 3, Shadow Warrior, Guns of Icarus, Awesomenutes and a lot of other games/indies, I have loved indie games since Steam and would love to get a lot of these for my PS4.

    I thought the single player story was "meh".  Incredibly boring in some parts and they could have done better.  I've like the single player of past Killzones.
  24. SimplyMonkey liked a post in a topic by EyesWL in ps4 vs xbox   
    No one can really make a decision on this until we have both consoles. Although it seems like the Xbox One has a better UI and the PS4 better hardware. Which is kinda what happened last-gen as well. Truth is MS is a software company while Sony is more a hardware company. There are strengths in both platforms.
  25. sp23hagbard5 liked a post in a topic by SimplyMonkey in How's the PS4? (People who bought answer)   
    The gamemodes are the same as last gen, the menus have been slightly redesigned but are largely the same. 
    The graphics are somewhat improved but expect a bigger change to come with FIFA 15.  One thing that is noticeable is the players shirts and shorts move and creases form and change depending on how the players move.  
    The presentation is improved and player animations have been added making the game look and feel more realistic.  Overall I love it and I'm glad I got it at launch.
