Unless you are buying from eb, it's the 29th of this month.

Or just try to score one from eb, if anyone forgets to pick up their ps4 after 72 hours.

I can see conversation is thriving here today anyway....


far out i thought this was a troll and not actually the "headset" that comes with PS4?



edit: just read that theyre adding third party USB headset support on day one patch so its not an issue if you have a good headset already.

The reason they don't package something good jrod is to keep the costs low.

Same reason you need an update for blu-ray playback on first play. They only pay for the licence on activated consoles keeping their costs as low as possible.

Theory applies to the headphones also.

So, walked past the Sony store at chatswood, the three smug blokes that work there have a ps4 set up, I noticed this while walking past.
I had to stop.
The machine wasn't turned on.
All three were not paying attention.
I could have walked away withe the machine under one arm and the ds4 in the other hand.
My heart raced.

I put the controller down.
And walked away.


SOON.

for those that care, the PS4 cost $381 per console to build so theyre making $18 on each console.

That's not bad, I honestly wouldn't have been surprised if they had it as a slight loss leader and aimed to make money back on the games, peripherals and other revenue streams.

yeah same. MS must have spent a shitload on other stuff if they decided to keep the cost down by not going GDDR5. because its obviously doable within profit!

My games from Playasia haven't turned up yet either but they're usually a little tardy if you just get normal shipping.

Anyone know the cheapest place for controllers? Playasia is actually the cheapest I've found I think.

I saw some footage of Killzone: Shadowfall being played. It looked very pretty, but there were parts where the framerate dropped well below 30fps. I guess it'll take some time to fully utilise the hardware at its best.

For a layman like me, what are the effects of the framerate dropping exactly?

Fewer frames means there is a single still image on the screen for a longer period of time before the next one comes up and a bigger change between one frame and the next because more time has gone by. Basically it just looks much less smooth. And yeah it will start looking like it's lagging if it really gets low.
