There appears to be a few places that have additional stock. Tesco & ASDA seem to have some.

The console itself is superb. It's easy to set up and looks stunning. I've only played BF4 so far (64 players + new controller layout + new sensitivity settings = shite DrewePeacock :) ) but it really does look amazing. There have been a couple of sound drop outs on BF4, but we know the game has issues.

I've set up the Playstation App with my PS4, and downloaded Resogun from that. It works really well.

I can confirm that 2 consoles need 2 PS+ accounts unfortunately. I was hoping that my sub-account would work for Giv's PS4, but it doesn't.

The camera is cool, and the face recognition is excellent.

So, yeah. Looking forward to trying Killzone tomorrow. See some of you in the Battlefield! Just don't rely on me for help... :D

I understood it that the plus user must use the secondary machine. Sub accounts only work on the primary machine. Plus users are allowed to play online anywhere. So whichever machine you registered as primary is Givi's.

Primary machine sub player
Secondary machine plus player

I'm not jealous either! The only game I'd be in interested in is BF4 which I can get on PS3 anyway! So nope, not remotely jealous *at ALL*

Yeah, you're right. That should work. I was bear of little brain when I was setting them up. Luckily we used a free trial to get around it, so we haven't spent money on it yet.

I'll test it later and will let you know what happens.

I've just been into town to buy some guitar strings. Just on a whim I popped into Game to enquire when they'd have some PS4s in stock. I was told that they might have some surplus stock after 5pm if people don't come and pick up their preorders. The chap said to come before 5pm to queue and added my name and number to the list. I was like well down the bottom but hey ho. If I feel like a sad loser later I may well go and join a queue.

I got one! You had to buy a "Mega bundle" though (£550). The only consoles that had left were bundled with Knack. Looks crap, but never mind. I made up my deficit by getting a camera and copies of BF4, KZ and a Lego game which was half price.

I am so weak willed! I only went to get some guitar strings!

Have to go out for a meal in a bit so probably won't get a chance to play with it until tomorrow.
