    Im sure there are some of you in the UK who missed on pre ordering the PS4, for time of its release on the 29th of November, you can pre order at any of the games stores now, but you wont be able to get those until Christmas.
    However Tesco UK, is offering the Knack Bundle for sale for £385 and state it will be delivered on release day, you can also get £10 of that price if you are a new Tesco customer, here are some links:

    We all know that electronics get hot, the only way of telling how hot they really are is my measuring their temperature and one of these methods is by using a Thermal Camera and as these images show, the result is quite impressive:

    The first image shows the console in a vertical position, having and the firmware updated:

    The second image shows the PS4 in a vertical position, after being on for 30 minutes and playing Killzone:

    The third and fourth images, shows the PS4 in a horizontal position, with 20 minutes of Killzone gameplay between

    I’m sure you have read the numerous articles about Foxconn hiring students and forcing them to assemble the PS4 with no pay as part of an internship, well according to a message posted by one of these alleged students, their mistreatment may have dire consequences on our PS4′s.

    On Friday someone by the name of qbroid joined IGN and posted this message:

    As some of you already know some ps4 are assembled by Foxconn in Yantai China by intern students.

    On Aug. 28th, one of the student started a thread stating that “Since foxconn are not treating us well, we will not treat ps4 console well. The ps4 console we assemble can be turned on at best”. This thread has been deleted but got snapshot.

    If your ps4 console was manufactured in Yantai China, then I wish you good luck.

    You can translate the content yourself in google translate.

    这么高端的一个产品,这可是索尼和微软联合起来对抗苹果的关键一步,可不幸的是小日本把它交给了富士康,富士康又把他们交给了我们这群北信实习生,它错了,它这次真的错了,富士康没把我们当人看,我们也没把它当成高端产品看,除了应付还是应付,这批产品能正常开机是我们最高的期望,哈哈,等ps4 9月9日正式上市的时候就是索尼亏损和富士康倒闭的日子!!共同祈祷吧!


    He finished the post with this image:

    On the second page of the thread, he posts this image, followed by the Chinese text with translation:

    1# OP:今天做英版PS3,在里边吐了口水,只为发泄。最近事故好多,不敢给家里打电话说事实,人命真不值钱.
    Today when I was making a UK versioin of PS3, I spitted saliva into it. Recently a lot of accident happened and I am too scared to call my family and tell them. Our life is so cheap that no one cares.

    2# 哈哈,直接拉坨翔进去
    Haha, you should take a shit into it.

    4# 我把多出来的密封贴纸带出来了,忘贴了的都是我的
    I brought the unused sealing sticker out, those which are forgotten to have sticker are all on me.

    5# 我咳嗽一口痰飞到主板上,上盖直接盖上了
    I coughed saliva on to the motherboard and I just cover the case

    10# 表示我天天摔PS4,一次三个
    I throw PS4 down every day, three together once.

    Before anyone gets upset and starts hating on Sony or Chinese Students, remember that this is merely a rumour and nothing more.

    I remember when the PS3 was released in USA, at a release day event, some dude took his PS3 out of the box, dropped it on the ground and let his friends, smash it to pieces with a Sledgehammer, while a shocked queue looked on in horror, well someone has done something similar with the PS4, check this video:

    Thanks for making me look for the video ICECOLDKILLAH :p

    More smashing videos :p

    Mind you this video is being done between 2 AM and 5 AM EST so we weren’t exactly all 100% awake. We went in-depth unlike some of the other videos out there. Three guys some beer and a new console on the floor. This is what it’s all about. In my opinion Sony did a hell of a job designing the Playstation 4

    Well this is officially my favourite PS4 video:


  • Posted by GregoryRasputin , on 13/11/2013 , @ 09:30pm


    I’m not sure how legit this is, so of course it is being treated as a huge rumour, until someone confirms or squashes the validity of this:


    Killzone Shadow Falls: 37.4Gb
    Knack: 39.3gb

    Both game contains single Pkg that contains whole data. as well as “RIF” file that is used for storing purchase data to activate digital contents from PSN Store.

    ├ ─ PS4
    │ └ ─ UPDATE

    ├ ─ App
    │ └ ─ CUSA00190

    ├ ─ bd

    └ ─ license

    This seems interesting and today I’ve got my Killzone SF and COD Ghost from gamestop.

    I tried loading them on my PS3′s BD-ROM it couldn’t read them. Maybe it was too obvious lol,

    However it seems that PC’s BD-ROM could read them.

    here’s the original source below.

    [Source] = http://bbs.a9vg.com/forum.php?mod=vi…ad&tid=3751020



    Two more games are released as well.

    Can’t really reveal the original source because they’re so strict about their security.

    My friend is the one of the members over there.

    Update 2:


    It looks just like the one of those PS3′s typical PKG files..
