Steve Bluck was the winner from before. Congrats Steve!

winner from yesterday - Antonio Burgess.  Might be a geekzone member. Not sure. Congrats Antonio!

today's winner hasn't gotten back to us yet, but I am almost 100% certain it is somebody from geekzone - (the name is extremely similar to a geekzone handle of someone I know is with Bigpipe) so check your emails people!

ETA: Yep, confirmed.  Definitely geekzone member. Can't post his name here until he confirms though. Privacy reasons etc.

I'll stuck to the plus games for now. Will have to see. I've gone a bit stupid buying clearance games for my ps3 so have a bit to work thru there. I've barely touched gta5 in ages.

I don't really look at new games because I prefer paying $20 for games but will probably have to get a couple of new releases for it. Recommendations?

There are a bunch of F2P games on the PS4, War Thunder is suppose to be good.

F2P ends up too much like work IMO. Like doing missions again and again to get money in game like lots of people do in gta5

Trine 2 is the latest PSPlus game, so you will get that straight away.  I downloaded it the other night.  It's a fantasy style puzzle platformer, great fun so far.

It's the first game that I can honestly say looks absolutely gorgeous in 3D.  So if you have a 3D TV, you're in luck (because virtually nothing else looks good in 3D).



BTW, congrats. :D

infamous Second Son is fun and really does look next gen.  I really love my Playstation 4.  Just propped it up on a vertical stand tonight, looks pretty.  Needs a Youtube app.

I've got the chromecast and fire tv for you tubing. Will probably displace the wii u on the hdmi switch and shelf so no need for a stand.

Well back to the subject of what to do with your extra PS4's when I first saw this thread I put a post up about it on a gaming website and that has generated nearly 200 views since then.  Like to think some people may have jumped on board.

I just think a general draw would be good on Geekzone for Geekzone members.  Others suggesting giving them to people who've joined Bigpipe from other ISP's etc already have their chance up til the end of the month.

Personally I'd join in an instant if finances allowed but for now they don't and I share the internet from my neighbours.  I've promoted you simply cause I like what I've heard, seen and read from here and other websites.  From that my opinion of Bigpipe is that it seems like a good company with something to offer simple as that and that's good enough for me to tell others about it.

I'll keep following and see how things go and if there's a chance to win something then that's a bonus if it goes to another Geekzone member then I'd be equally happy regardless though when finances are better I'm quite sure who I'll be signing up with.

Thanks for the support. That's great to hear. We'll definitely be doing something for geekzone members.  Just need to work out exactly what...
