He would have only been able to play disc games as well. I couldn't play anything on my PS4 for a day and a half because I couldn't log in to download anything.
Really? You couldn't play anything on your PS4 for a day and a half? How were you sharing pics of yourself playing Killzone along with those Twitch streams from the PS4 on launch day? :p
This sudden focus on PSN login issues for launch day seems kinda silly when the whole podcast discussion was about what the average console setup time is like on these new consoles, especially for someone like Cheapy's dad. It was clearly meant to be a general discussion about the setup experience, but I guess Shipwreck is going to count the launch day hitches as the general experience.
EDIT: Read my post again, and sorry it comes off more confrontational than I wanted. I'm just confused on these time examples given or where launch day issues fit in all this. I don't have my own Xbox One yet, but I'm truly impressed if MS made it take the same setup time when it comes with a peripheral IR blaster/camera and TV input. I assumed it wouldn't, but you guys have both systems and I don't.
