    Anyone else looking to take time off work on launch week?

    So yea, I'm pretty much nerding out for this release. As soon as an official release date of the ps4 is revealed by sony I'll be booking time off work so I can enjoy my new purchase. PS4 with 2 open world behemoths (Watchdogs and AC4), I'll likely be taking that week off lol.

    Is anyone else making such plans?

    Come find me on Twitch.tv!

    I'd be in the middle of my exams so no
    Infact that's the reason I'll postpone buying it until the end of my school year (summer)

    Nah.

    The launch line while pretty good, doesn't jump out at me as being must have. I'll wait till inFamous Second Son comes out before taking the plunge.

    I work enough as is. Taking time off just for a console launch would be a waste of my free time and money.

    Same here, launch day off and no additional days off, will use my spare time plenty on the PS4 though.

    I'd love to take time off. But I usually like to use my leave hours from Christmas to about 2 weeks into January.

    Although a Friday and Monday on either side of the PS4 launch weekend wouldn't hurt...

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Agreed - that's why annual leave and/or unused sick days says hi.
