5.0 out of 5 stars Gaming Masterpiece, 30 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony PS4 and Killzone Shadow Fall (PS4) (Console)
I shall start this by saying excellent service by Amazon. Got the PS4 on time on day of release. I write this shortly after writing my Xbox One review. So many losers want me to pick a side and say how much better one particular console is when the truth is I own all 3, PS4, Xbox One and Wii U and can honestly say that the difference between Wii U to Xbox One/PS4 is minimal whilst difference between Xbox One and PS4 is invisible to the naked eye. They all have their own exclusives, take your preference and you won't be disappointed which ever console you choose. Ok, onto the review of the console. The PS4 is the most stylish of all the 'next gen' consoles, and I can confirm the so called 'noisy' console is nice and quiet, far more so than PS3. On the flip-side it definitely does not feel quite as expensive/well built as Xbox One. The new joypad is beautiful and yet familiar to any Sony fans. An excellent upgrade that will feel natural in your hands from the start. The launch line-up is not quite as impressive as Xbox One or indeed the Wii U when that was released, but Killzone which came bundled, Resogun, Battlefield 4 and Warframe are must have games from the launch line-up. This will be the console if all you are interested in is games and that is apparent from when you boot up. The whole 'eco-system' is game oriented and multi-media, what little there is, is pushed into the background, whereas on Xbox One everything is in your face from music, movies to the most important games. this difference in emphasis is definitely more stark than previous gen. I am excited as to the future of console gaming, in an ideal world all 3 would co-exist, but instead it is like the South Park episode, all I know is, if you do choose PS4, it will give you years of gaming pleasure. A big upgrade from PS3 and a beast of a gaming machine. That is already apparent.

All I know is that I had to mute the tv when playing Killzone to hear any noise at all from the console. Just a quiet whirring noise. It is definitely not a loud console and if the console is loud I would suggest getting it checked out as I can confirm they can run very quietly indeed both playing games and Blu-ray movies!

Hi there, I've just ordered this - can you please tell me if the ps4 comes in amazon packaging or just in the actual box for the ps4?

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Jan 2014 21:25:40 GMT
Amazon box with PS4 box inside!

Thanks for that mate - I'm having it delivered to my uni so I'd prefer to keep it anonymous and away from prying eyes, so thanks for the info.
