9. Re: Changing a PS4 hard drive makes it faster- default, hybrid & SSD tested Nov 26, 2013, 13:09 John
 
Anyone here try that yet? I wouldn't put a SSD in mine because they're still too expensive for high capacity but maybe a regular one with a faster read/write speeds.

Does the new Xbox also have one of those power bricks like the old ones?

It has a huge power brick, yes.
So the Xbox One console is significantly bigger than the PS4, has a huge power brick, and is less powerful than the PS4? Nice..

A HL3 announcement would have been a nice 15th anniversary surprise for us! Oh well, maybe on the 20th anniversary..

I think the original HL was my favorite game until HL2 came out. Still waiting for HL3 or HL2:Ep3...

It's a shame that Valve barely develops any games these days, though what they've done with Steam has redefined PC gaming.
Yeah, you'd think they would be able to afford to hire more people to work on games too!

I'm hoping that, now that amazon has a store front selling PS codes, we'll see those kind of discounts from them, as well.

Yeah, I've seen them sell Xbox Gold subscriptions for less before so they should do the same with PS+.

Moving on, I got a buy 2 get 1 free game deal with my PS4 and so I foolishly picked Battlefield 4 as my third title. Wow what a broken piece of shit this game is, Conquest mode doesn't even appear to work and I've seen multiple server crashes in under an hour. That's what I get for giving console FPS a chance again.
Hows the single-player campaign?

Maybe that survivor 2299 site isn't fake after all.

thesurvivor2299.com


Is there supposed to be a 24-day countdown on that site?


=-Rigs-=

I'm going to try to translate that Morse Code when I get some time.
What Morse code? All I see is the countdown..

My Fallout 3 experience:

Played through, game save was corrupted and unrecoverable right outside the final showdown.

My Fallout NV experience:

Played through, game corrupted at the zombie rocket mission (about 60 hours through, I had a lot of mods...), crashing and unrecoverable on top of Hoover Damn near the final fight.
That's why I always have multiple saves when I play RPGs.. I stagger at least 3 saves so if the latest one is corrupt, I can load the previous one and not lose too much play time. I had a similar experience before where I was 50+ hours into a RPG and died, but couldn't reload the save game because it was corrupt. Ever since then I have done multiple saves.

This is also good if the latest save is either in a location you can't get out of or somewhere that you're about to die.. I've had that happen before too. It sucks when you die and reload the last save only to die again without being able to do anything about it!

The controller battery life is really short compared to the old ones ,but that must be the light...
Yeah, that light is pretty bright. I wonder if turning it off while in a game would help battery life at all. It doesn't really need to be on unless you have the camera and play a game that uses it.

And why is the guy in killzone so short? The guys like 5 feet tall.
Are you talking about the beginning of the game when you play as a kid?

Well I was going to give my PS4 a try last night but the update took forever to download! Their servers must have been really slammed or something because it shouldn't have taken so long. It took over an hour for the 324mb file to dl..

And while I was waiting for it to finish, I fell asleep watching tv and by the time I woke up I had to get to bed! Oh well, I'll try again tonight.

Assassin's Creed 4 PS4 update will upgrade resolution from 900p to 1080p.

That's an odd resolution. Glad they will have an update for it!

Speaking of updates, how big is the firmware update for the PS4?

I love the way the case ripples when he shoots it longways. Remind me not to get shot by a .50
Yeah, a .50 caliber bullet can really tear sh!t up! I was lucky enough to shoot a friend's Barrett 82A1 (same as the one in the video) and it was sweet! Another guy had a tripod-mounted .50 cal machine gun that I got to blow a few rounds through too.

Got mine at Midnight last night.
Turned it on, took maybe 5 or 6 minutes to get the day 1 patch done.
put in the Killzone disc. As soon as the disc was in it started installing.
Was playing within about 35 seconds or so.
The system is solid, I love it. Resogun and Contrast are both free for PS+ Members for the launch which I thought was cool.
Gonna go back to playing now.
Thanks for the update! How does Killzone look and play? I'll have to sign up for PS+ too after I get mine setup.

Well, unfortunately mine won't arrive until tomorrow but I'm not sure if I'll play it yet anyways or just wait until after I move next Saturday.. I will need to buy a TV for my new place though.
