ricky1981: They've sold out now but they were Day 1 editions with FIFA included. Very good deal, here's hoping they do something similar for the PS4 :)


Warehouse must be very close to sending out an email confirming PS4 bundles.

I'm taking 29 November, launch day, off work.  Being single has advantages and disadvantages but one major advantage is not having to explain to a gf or wife why on earth would I want to "waste" leave on a console launch.  Man, this is a once in a 7 or 8 year event - who wouldn't want to take a day off for it?   


Do what I did and marry the best woman ever! I take those days off and still don't have to explain it :) 

She also takes the kids from the house on big game launch days.

Ha, you might be surprised how often I hear that :) 


I could make things worse and say she bought me the X1 for my birthday and suggested I buy the PS4 for Xmas :)

Sounds like my missus, told me she'll take our daughter out on saturday and sunday so I can have some gaming time and convinced me I should get both consoles at launch :) She's definitely a keeper!

Guys, for those of you who preordered the ps4 from the warehouse, do you know if they are doing mid night release? I preordered mine from Petone, wellington a month ago and they told me they are likely to/were planning a mid night launch for it. Fingers crossed they are!!

Also, for those of you who play FPS online, do you know how dedicated servers may help gaming? I know they will be the middle man and therefore everyone will get good connection. Does that mean we will also get a better connection with people in the USA? Because there wont be my PS4s playing COD in the first few months :( Nooby question i know, but i just wanna make sure

I see some issues in a Stuff article, man these days everything new seems to have issues. Revolving blue light, no action it seems by some PS4's

Probably low numbers but check the speed of warranty replacement I suggest

Something like 150 one star reviews about these faults and over 600 5 star reviews (on amazon), Considering people are more likely to complain than to talk about how great a product is, I'd say it's just the general Out of Box failures we get with all electronic devices.


It's to be expected when you get a first generation of anything, I dont think I've seen a successful first generation of anything electronic in the past 10+ years that hasn't been plagued with some type of 'widespread' fault.

I am also able to use one, I had to do just the same as you, but singing the national anthem of Germany Backwards in Mandarin after
sacrificing a goat. I am a busy IT person who makes a lot of calls, thankfully I work in a gold herding community. I just hope my neighbours don't catch on.

Our jbhifi is selling xbox ones --- didn't even know they'd gone on sale.

There wasn't much publicity around it at all.

Next weeks ps4 launch looks to be disappointing given the lack of a killer title. I've got a pre-order too -- considering my options on that .
