THE ANNOUNCEMENT
The announcement of the PS4 was preceded by a set of videos released by Sony in the weeks before the NYC event


Sony officially announced the PlayStation 4 on February 20, 2013 at a 2 hour event called PlayStation Meeting 2013, which was hosted by Andrew House & held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

The hardware specifications and interface of the new console were presented by Mark Cerny, who also showed off the newly redesigned DualShock 4 controller.

Gaikai CEO, David Perry, took the stage to talk about the potential their streaming and cloud gaming service can bring to the console.

The Playstation 4 made its debut on Monday June 10 at the Sony E3 2013 press conference where it was revealed that it will cost $399 (US), contain a 500GB hard drive, and be packed with a controller and headset (ear bud + cord mic). The PlayStation 4's "used games strategy" was also discussed, and Sony announced there would be no DRM or protection on used PS4 games. Sony also announced that the PlayStation Plus subscription membership is now required for online gaming.
On August 20th 2013 at Gamescom in Germany, Sony revealed the console would be released November 15th 2013 in the US and November 29th in Europe.

    Upon further research apparently the PS2 sold 980,000 in 24 hours in Japan
    http://metro.co.uk/2013/11/18/ps4-sells-1-million-consoles-in-first-day-breaks-all-time-record-4190612/

    So what the dreamcast sold between 980,000 and 1,000,000?

    Tried out the ad hoc Remote Play on Vita...plays like a dream when I've got LOS (or close to it), but throws a fit when it tries to send a signal through a wall and a TV. Which means I'll either have to move my PS4, or upgrade my router to a better N version so I can get more distance. Resogun and KZ:SF both look fantastic on dat OLED.

    Just played a few more hours of KZ multiplayer. It's basically KZ3 in 1080p, feel-wise, or at least, that's how I felt this weekend and early tonight. I really enjoy it - I'm not always top of the chart, but every once in a while I'll have a satisfying killstreak, and every game mode is exciting... But eventually, I took the time to comb through the menus, read up on challenges and requirements for unlocks, set and rename my loadouts, and drill down.

    I was having fun before, but now, it's all clicking. Editing my loadout to swap spawn beacon in and out every few deaths was an annoying extra step before, and there were certain abilities that I hadn't yet tried... But now everything is twice as fast and I'm in the action nonstop. I was adjusting my loadouts between missions before by changing guns and abilities manually, but now it's just a matter of selecting from the most appropriate of twelve options, with two button presses instead of five - so quick and easy.

    And when I was almost ready for bed and got tired of running around a larger map and just longed for more instantaneous action? There's an ability that lets you instantly teleport to a teammate engaged in a firefight. Grabbed a shotgun, hit X, and every time I tapped right on the d-pad, I was ducking fire, running into a building with teammates, rounding a corner to face a group of enemies... It was like an instant fun button. I love next-gen.

    Maybe he means the context of why they hate their kid so much they want to play a joke that cruel on him.
    Possible reason: they're trying to get on Jimmy Kimmel's "Terrible Christmas Gifts" video.

    I've heard that the link goes for miles or it ends at about 20 paces, Its a super cool feature, but what is the limiter? (as a precautionary warning if you're connecting over a data link, it apparently eats up quite a bit of data, so if you're not on an unlimited plan you may want to watch the data usage.)

    March's Tomb Raider reboot from Crystal Dynamics may be released on PlayStation 4 if a new Amazon listing is anything to go by. Amazon Italy (via Eurogamer) posted a PS4 listing for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition with a release date of January 24, 2014.

    A second listing is also posted on Amazon Italy's website, though its platform is listed as "classified." Tomb Raider was released in March on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, but not Wii U. Versions for PS4 and Xbox One have not been announced or even widely rumored until today.

    According to the product page, the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will include the main game, all its DLC, and an artbook. Various multiplayer map packs for Tomb Raider were released, though no new story content was ever introduced.

    A Square Enix representative was not immediately available to comment. A Tomb Raider sequel is currently in development for next-generation consoles.

    I restarted the first stage like four times, kept a super close eye on Keepers, but no matter what there would always be a guy who would instantly die.

    The only thing I can think of is that there are enemy suicide bombers who crash into your caged dudes, but I'm not seeing any indication to confirm that.

    But on the subject of confirmations, I can confirm that the shove button is in AC IV after all. It's the X button, except it's not labeled in the context menu for some odd reason.

    One of the humans in stage one requires a 3x multiplier to unlock I believe. It happens when moving into phase 3 if I am remembering correctly.

    Anyone able to confirm that? It's really annoying that the game doesn't even hint about this requirement.

    I'd buy it again if it had actual story DLC (even something as simple as extra tombs) instead of just shit-ass MP stuff. Tomb Raider MP was awful, publisher mandated tacked on poo.



    Also, if anyone's playing Knack, and having trouble with the inconsistant range on his air attack, the attack's range appears to be dependant on Knack's size.

    That's super lame if true. I'm not a high score person, so I never worry about maintaining a multiplier. But if it's required to save all the humans, I'll probably uninstall this one.

    Knack is a competent game, but it does nothing exceptionally well.

    It's like a Vespa versus a Harley. The Vespa gets you where you need to go and works well, but it just doesn't have the soul of a Harley.

    I was interested in Knack but after watching the GB footage (even ignoring their comments) it didn't really click with me.

    There are no real launch games that are "for me", save maybe Assassin's Creed. Strangely this doesn't mean I want a PS4 any less urgently.

    Just to clarify, I'm perfectly fine with maintaining a multiplier, since that's just an extra incentive to score high in a high score-focused game.

    I just hate that the game doesn't convey to you whatsoever that it's a requirement to saving all the humans.

    If you're not a high score person why does it matter if you can't save all the humans? Just play it how you want.

    I like that they don't tell you shit besides "Save The Last Humans" and throw you in the deep end, it's a nice throwback from the arcade days. You're meant to discover how to achieve that objective on your own by playing the game. Hell they don't even tell you what the Keepers are or what they do, but you quickly realize they're important.

    I really hope they figure out BF4 shit soon. I'd like to be able to play the game I bought to play with friends WITH said friends.
    When I jump into the server browser and apply some filtered searching, the game crashes and then when I boot it back up it says my save files are corrupted.

    I really wanted to tackle single player to unlock the multiplayer guns, and two corrupted saves kinda discouraged me.
