    It seems to be whatever Microsoft does, Sony come out from the dark and says, ''Hey, we'll do the opposite!''. Seems to be working thus far!

    Yep. Sony is running the "other" show. It's not like they'll say a damned thing unless another company starts first. lol

    Yea, that move was not a good idea by microsoft, especially when that system costs $500.

    Yup, plus doesn't it need a patch on day-one before it even starts functioning correctly? They shouldn't go too hard on a guy who managed to snag a system early. Surely it's down to the ineptitude of the retailer rather than the punter who tried their luck.

    Such an amazing gesture from Sony, unlike the MS $#@!s who ban users for getting stuff early? If there's people to be punished for it take it with whoever sold and release the device earlier than MS wanted I do not understand why MS has to punish gamers for it but hey it's their loss, cause it sure makes more people want to go with Sony.

    This is good. It's stupid that you can get banned for owning something legit days before launch.

    I think sony has hired spies to take over Microsoft or something. It's like everytime the people at Microsoft open their mouths, they kick the door wide open for Sony.

    Pfftt... Stupid of MS and Sony's taking advantage of it. The reality is both have a Day 1 FW update that's required to do much of anything, including playing games. So, even if someone got the consoles before the street date, they can limit their ability to make any use of it until Day 1 by simply withholding the patch.

    The ps4 can play games without the patch. Just not some of the features they showed.

    One of the guys who got the Xbone early was probably able to even update because he said that the XBone update was about 500mb.

    Is there any point getting a next gen system early, I'm glad PS4 is releasing 29th in EUR, at least when it releases here in Australia we will have everything ready to go day one, e.g. PS4 releases in North America and it doesn't even have a playstation phone app ready until the 22nd and Americans won't have many worldwide players to play with because others won't have the system until the 29th.

    So yeah Americans get PS4 early but they won't have any real competition until the 29th when majority of the world gets PS4 excluding Japan, China and India.

    SONY wouldn't have pulled this extremeist **** and they sure as hell wouldn't have built such a huge brick for a system.

    Apparently from what I've heard the power brick doubles as a mini-power conditioner to protect the console from surges and spikes in the AC power grid and makes sure the console gets a clean DC power stream... that's what I've heard... I'm sure sony has something small like that built into the PS4 but who really knows, I only ever use expensive power protecting power boards anyway so it's not a worry.

    Early signs all point towards Sony getting ahead in this next gen war and this news is another blip on the radar of Microsoft!

    Give me a break people- I mean come on: while MS kind of had this coming and should have looked at the bigger picture, it's pretty easy to come in after the fact and say they would do the opposite- but I guarantee you that if Sony was in MS's position and they goofed up first- they would have done the exact same thing.

    But they don't, when people have gotten games early and such you never hear about psn banning anyone. But with microsoft that's s.o.p.

    The way everything is currently being handled at Microsoft, I highly doubt that.
