    Amazon US Shipped My Extra DualShock 4 Controller

    It'll be here Tuesday. But no surprise early PS4 of course. Just the controller. Presumably Sony is shipping or has shipped out all the launch hardware allocations to retailers and the PS4 controllers aren't embargoed for sale until the 15th like the console itself, so Amazon shipped what they were allowed to ship. Fun. I don't remember paying extra for the Tease and Torture Service, but that was all the way back in June. Maybe I forgot.

    I get BF4 on the 12th of November. It's going to be so hard to have that game in my hands and no PS4 til 3 days later.

    Amazon will apparently be shipping COD: Ghosts on the PS4 to me on the 5th November, I didn't realize that it would (allegedly) be released the same time as the PS3 version but according to Amazon it will be!!

    When did you preorder? I preordered all our PS4 and XOne stuff from Amazon on June 21. The Xone is console-only, the PS4 is part of a bundle but the second controller wasn't part of that bundle. We do have a Prime subscription. That might account for processing time differences, if you preordered earlier than we did.

    The DualShock 4 works with the PS3? I did not know that. I mean, obviously not the PS4-specific features like touchpad and game audio via controller, but just the basic controller functions, I wasn't aware.

    Oh, speaking of PS4 controllers, if you've never used game audio via a WiiU gamepad, game audio via controller is cooler than you think. Although if PS4 lets developers use controller audio for specific content and ONLY specific content, that can get annoying. I'm looking at you, ZombiU.

    And, finally, yes ever since there was a CoD Ghosts release date, it's always been all platforms, same day, November 5 in the US. So you can buy it next week and set it on a shelf for 10 days. I've got KZ SF preordered as part of the PS4 launch-day bundle but other than that I'm going to wing it. Ghosts is a given for PS4. I guess DR3 for Xone. I'm trying to avoid the thing where I buy 10 games right out of the gate and collectively my kids and I play 5 of those games a lot but by the time we can get to the other 5 there's Watch Dogs or Titanfall or whatever, leaving US$300 of games sitting there no one even looks at for a year or two. When they're retailing brand new for half the launch price. I still have Lair. I've played 10 minutes of Lair.

    Apple's done that to me a couple times on preordered hardware. Years ago I got my spare power adapter for a PowerBook a couple weeks before the PowerBooks shipped. Same thing with my preordered iPad mini. I got the Apple-branded, mini-specific cover a week before the iPads were released. I've generally quit preordering. I made an exception for PS4 and Xone because last generation I didn't preorder and spent two months both launch years scrambling all over the place trying to find in-stock consoles. I really would like to be able to just walk in launch week and buy something and carry it home. But I really doubt anybody selling these sorts of things cares what I'd like to be able to do.

    Agreed, I would also love to be able to get both a device and its accessories together on day one, but nowadays OEMs are becoming really bad at it promising a certain release date but that's just for you to be able to place the order then it takes about 1-2 weeks for them to actually ship.

    It's a marketing strategy. It annoys everyone I know but I figure it must work on somebody. If it doesn't they wouldn't do it. They wouldn't do things that damage the overall business. Of course that's what Alan Greenspan said about U.S. banks self-regulating.

    Mine turned up Monday, earlier than the guaranteed Tuesday. It's still in the retail packaging on my desk. Makes a fancy paperweight.

    I assume the ps4 will come with a usb cable right? The one from my ps3 is too big and the micro cable I have is too small to fit in the ds4. Can someone send me a link to the right one from Amazon?

    Per the final Sony spec sheet, yes. One cable. There may be a cable that comes with my extra DualShock 4 too, but I don't know as I haven't opened it. Did PS3 controllers come with cables. I think they did at least for a while. I have too many running around to just be from consoles.

    I just went and checked. According to the box contents, nope. Annoying.

    And it's Micro-B. I got you a Monoprice link. Usually a lot less expensive and I've had fewer problems with Monoprice cables than so-called premium cables. This is the 10 foot but they sell many lengths. I just figured 10 feet is a maximum play and charge length.

    My DS4 showed up today and I have to say I love the feel. I've got pretty big hands and this new controller feels great. Now I just need the system!
