Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

I thought the God of War bundle was hideous, so it's not hard to believe

That's true, but the controller is too boring to be part of a Limited Edition set.

I got the Star Wars Bundle and while that console is nothing too spectacular :
Spoiler:


even that bundle's controller is a little unique (and, only noticable in bright light, the thumbpad in the center has little "star wars" logos all over it. Kinda cute).

As far as that console goes, I do like the Pro more. It is faster and mostly quieter. Also it has 5G wireless which is thankfully much better and faster than the wifi on the old model. I don't have a 4K TV yet so I can't totally appreciate the upgrade, but I think I see some more detail here and there in graphic-intensive games like FC5 and God of War.

Funny story : I bought a SW PS4 Pro bundle "Like New" from Amazon Warehouse for about $450. When it arrived 5 days later ( 2-Day Shipping my ass! ), I thought it was weird that it rattled as I took out the box. Turns out some crook took out the PS4 Pro (and the game disc from the SW Battlefront 2 box), replaced the console with some broken computer parts and replaced everything and sealed it back up with those Game Stop like clear circular stickers! Great job with that inspection, Amazon Warehouse guy!
Of course, I called them immediately and let them know. They gave me a refund once they got the box of crap back. I bought another SW PS4 Bundle, this one new and from a third-party seller through Amazon Prime. Since I didn't have to pay sales tax (yet, of course I will eventually ), it was only like $10 more. And it was new, perfect and arrived in two days.

I don't know, this CoD bundle looks pretty plain with just a color swapped controller.

Wow...that's just cold but good for Amazon on the follow up.....I still might end up going with a Pro since mine still has issues here and there but it's mainly with certain games....Warframe and Elder Scrolls. I played 6hrs of FC5 and nothing happened. I like the SW Bundle but already have the game. A friend at work "WAS" playing it but he said the MP is dead and it's hardly anyone in there.....I know several playing Fortnite and GoW for one.

So you've seen some improvement with the Pro over the normal one? I don't have a 4K TV....I'll keep my Sony Projector...size does matter.

It's weird that they don't even have the console pictured on the box so you can see what it looks like...

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

My Uncharted 4 console just has a light blue controller, nothing thrilling.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Speaking of controllers, I was in Wal-mart over the weekend and it looked like ALL color variations were priced around $46*. Of course that was a few days ago, things could have changed. I meant to post when I saw it but forgot all about it until you guys started discussing the consoles.

*this was the cardboard hangers you have to take to the counter. The shelf tags in the glass case with the actual controllers showed SRP.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

The Walmart website shows $46.96 for the PS4 controllers, and I believe I seen the same thing in store.

The local Toy's R Us finally went to 30% off of console accessories, which would make the PS4 controllers $41.99. They still have quite a few of the PS4 controllers, while the Xbox One controllers have been gone for a while.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

Are there anyone using those outboard cooling fans; snap in the back or the Vertical Stand units? A friend of mine mentioned her PS4 gets hot and asked if those really work and I just don't know.

I've thought about getting one but I cannot stand my PS4 vertical in the space it is and I need both USB Ports; for the USB Drive and USB Headphones. I wonder if there are some other choices using PC Fans instead with a homemade housing.

Re: PS4: 0 days without a DDoS attack

I kind of forgot that this was coming out (and that I had pre-orered it months ago), but it arrived in my office today. I loved the original game in 2013 and it's one of the few Remasters that I would actually want to play again now.



It's available both digitally and physically in the Battle-Hardened Editon
Spoiler:



That Steelbook Metalpack is a beaut. It's in a clear Slipcover and is totally embossed and stunning.

Edit : Here's a picture of mine :
