My google-fu is failing me this week, and I just can't find an answer to this question
My family has all chipped in with us to buy my teenage son a PS4 with a few games for Christmas this year. As soon as it arrived I thought to myself "Hey.. I remember what a pita waiting for my XBone to install all the updates was... I should sneak this out of the box for him and get it all ready to roll!" . Then I suddenly realised maybe you need to create a user account etc before you can do those things? He was xbox last gen so doesn't already have a PSN account, and god only knows what name he would want so I can't set that up for him.
Has anyone set up a PS4 lately and could let me know when in the process the updates happen? Can I just plug it in and let it chug away updating? I don't want to take away the fun of "Opening the new thing for the first time" just to find out I can't do it anyway. But I also know he will drive me crazy if he has to spend all day waiting for our lousy internet connection to update the operating system AND Black Ops 3. Because of the price it's the only thing he's getting for Christmas from the whole family so it would really suck if he can't use it on the day!
Oh and for the record...he doesn't really play single player anything other than couch co-op campaigns with me... he only really games at all to play with his friends from school, so leaving it offline and enjoying the campaign for the first day isn't going to fly
Thanks for any advice you guys have
