Dumb question but you guys think target or walmart still have in store pre-orders? Looks like my options for pre-ordering now are quite slim. Would rather not have to go hunting.

On Monday, I preordered at Wal-Mart. They still had a buttload. Target, on the other hand, only had like two left (as of August 31st).

I wa in GS today and the Sony rep (who already has a PS4) told them the Demo units would be in the store October 22nd. (I'm getting an X1, but this was news to me.)

This is what I want to know, history tells us that we don't see ANY deals for games for consoles that just launched. The Wii and PS3 had 0 deals for games, last year the Wii U had none.

 

The interesting thing is that say we do see BF4 for PS3/360 for $30. We could actually buy that version and then do the digital upgrade for $10. I know bestbuy and gamestop are doing those programs. I know PSN is to digitally. In turn this would actually force retailers to do PS4 and XB1 deals anyway in order to match PS3+360 games +$10 upgrade.

 

I plan on buying BF4 with my PS4, but if I can snag Madden or COD at black friday for $30 or $40, I will do that.

I think we will see buy 2 games get $xx Giftcard.

Or at least I hope so.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

PS4 to support unencrypted HDMI output for gameplay !!!!!

 

For anyone who cares, who does video capturing, who makes Youtube videos, etc., this is HUGE news and a major improvement over the PS3.  Blu-ray movies will continue to be encrypted, but gameplay HDMI output will be unencrypted.  You can capture in full HDMI glory without jumping through hoops like on the PS3.

Very nice! Glad to hear this!

And for all that don't know the difference, capturing raw footage with a capture card allows for video editing.

LOL. I remember the rumor from just a few days ago that said Sony was having trouble adding gameplay capturing and it probably wouldn't be available until next year.

Thats actually not true. Shortly after the Vita launch (like 2 weeks), Target had a B2G1 free deal, which also happened for the WIi U I believe. Also we have those semi cross buy games this gen, which could ultimately lead to a good deal with Black Friday and such.

True.  The change in the PS4 though means way less hassle, less cables running back and forth, and no need to buy anything extra.  My interest in a PS4 has increased by a ton after learning this.

The work around was to use composite cables... Which the PS4 doesn't have this ability natively.

In theory, you could buy an HDMI to composite converter, but there is no telling if that would have actually worked.

There were only two work arounds and neither was exactly amazing.

 

The first and most common was simply using composite cables. This typically resulted in having to find / buy them for the PS3, which wasn't hard, but you generally didn't want to cheap out and get some that hamper your footage either. This also resulted in companies like Elgato tossing in a convertor to allow nonHDMI capture. 

 

The other was getting a splitter / sometimes that removes the HDCP signal. These can range 20+ dollars and I might be overly cautious, but I rather not have a record of buying one. I rather not have to explain why I am trying to circumvent HDCP when I have simpler solutions.

There is also the splitter like I mentioned.

Hell to the yes. The last ball I was waiting for to drop was they mentioned a Gaikai annoucement might come at TGS. This is great news. Downside for those who have tons of PS3 games and do not want to re-buy them, suppose they can just plug in the PS3. But for me I entered PS3's generation around halfway through so I missed out on a ton of good games.

Also not sure if it's been posted. We all knew deep down that Sony would have Voice and Gesture controls too, so for anyone interested here you go. http://www.gamespot....firmed-6414680/ It's going to be a great generation for gamers!

Anyone know if Sony will be making/selling wired controllers for the PS4?  Every retailer I've searched only shows the wireless controller.  (FYI.  I would only be interested in Sony controllers; not interested in any third party ones.  Thx)

 

Edit:

I just found out that Sony never even made wired controllers for the PS3?!?!  WTF.  I HATE wireless.  Damn.  I can't believe that's going to be the reason I get an XB1. I pray MS doesn't make a wired controller for the XB1 so I don't have to go there...  :cry:

The wireless controller can be used wireless or wired. Just stick a USB cable into the PS4 and a Mini-USB into the DualShock 4. That's the way it was with PS3 and the same with PS4.

The PS3 wireless controllers actually last a pretty long time before they need charged again. Just have to have 2 and rotate them.

Ah, thanks!  I'll have to see how I plan to layout my console and play area.  This one is 6' long while the other is 15'.  I'll have to see how much I really need.

Make sure you buy a Micro USB cord for the PS4, not the Mini USB that the PS3 uses.
