Just 24 Hours to go! I am not going to a launch event (Not my thing), but I am a confirmed recipient of the first shipment thanks to my lovely wife who managed to track down one for me. 

I have Killzone and the AC4 Black Flag Upgrade ordered, I got an extra controller, and am hoping the PS4 Camera is decent (Though I can't see it being a patch on the Kinect from my X1 in all honesty). 

Anyone going to a launch event? Anyone planning on "upgrading" their HDD to either a Solid State or Hybrid Drive?

Amazon is doing digital downloads of some games for $49 USD (Killzone etc) and there are some Black Friday deals from various sites, including the Sony Online store if anyone has interest.

Yeah same with me. I'm not planning on going to the launch event at EB Games in Welly but I might change my mind as I don't trust them to keep my console aside until Friday morning.

I already have a 2nd controller, camera and games (NBA2k14, BF4 and Madden) as I purchased them from Amazon (much cheaper) and now I just need the console :-)

You should have got an email with a list of bundles. They had the first game for $65 and subsequent between $70-80

most likely theyre still in the mightyape warehouse, just theyve been packaged up and waiting for pickup.  if they have 1000 consoles (judging by their facebook photo), 10 should be DOA :)

By "with courier" I meant the package, not the number :) (it was picked up a little over an hour ago).

anyone game to try the psn digital codes from amazon? USD$60 for a game compared to what NZD$108.

I bought a USD$6 code for flower to test out, if that works i might try the blackflag or injustice code.... price difference is pretty massive, even factoring gst and exchange rate.
