    What are your favorite features of the PS4?

    I must say, the UI on this system is awesome. Not because it is ground breaking or anything but due to the fact that it is a spin of the XMB but much better. Everything is practically seamless now. I was actually worried about it because I took a hiatus from looking at videos until I got it but I couldn't be happier. But here are some of my overall favorites.

    Game installing in background
    Trophy syncing
    Streaming of twitch and ustream
    Boot straight to menu
    My absolute favorite is double tapping the PS button to switch back and forth
    Fluidity is just amazing. Thank you 8gb of RAM!

    The game installing is so great because of the fact that it gets you in the game so much faster than on the PS3, which is a given. But there is little disconnect from the experience when you throw in a disc. Both bf 4 and KZ were ready to pay in less than a minute. The trophy sync is incredibly fast now too. It takes all of 3-5 secs to sync.

    I also really like the game streaming, when I was at my buddies house. I know it has been around but it is incredibly convenient to have it right there. Not to mention you can get a good view of how you might like the game. The boot straight to menu is awesome as well. No more cut scenes just to fill time while the game is loading.

    The best for me has too be double tapping the PS button. If you get a message from a buddy you just open up the message and type your message then double tap the game pops right back up. Seems you another message, double tap and you are right back to the conversation. It just creates for a seamless experience. By far it favorite feature.

    I like the new UI, background loading while you play, and what you mentioned about managing incoming messages while in game.

    I hear that you can put headphones into the game controller to hear game sound instead of the TV... if true that would be awesome!

    I do that. I use my ear buds I got with my Note 3. I had to enable the option in the system settings first.

    Besides the fact that games look amazing? I really REALLY like how fast and responsive the interface is. Pausing a game to reply to a message is effortless.

    Standby mode because it downloads updates and with the right hard drive upgrade bootup can be near instant that you wont want to do a cold boot ever again.

    Yeah, I really like the standby mode and the background downloads. I was able to download DCUO while playing NFS and then ran to get my car inspected. When I came back, the game was almost ready to go. Incredible feature!

    Oh man, tough call. Lots of goodies on this console. Not having to wait for a full install before playing a game....I think that one takes first place though.

    Come find me on Twitch.tv!

    Honestly there was much said about how this jump wasnt really next gen. More like a .5 version of what we had but the things that can be done are a substantial leap over the PS3.

    Playing Assassins Creed 4 on my Vita at work 20miles away from my PS4 virtually lag free.... That's currently my favorite feature.

    That and the chat only/all audio option of the headphone jack built into the controller so I can use my favorite headphones.

    That's nice. Me too, but I tought we were talking about the PS4 not PC... o_O

    They think I'm working and their paying me. Shhhhh, keep it down. They may hear you.....

    All seriousness tho. They don't don't care what I do during my down time. So long as it doesn't interfere with my uptime.

    (Edited) just wanted to add me least favorite thing about the PS4. This bright ass led on the controller. My god its bright. Damn light reflects off of everything on my entertainment stand. I'm seriously thinking about coloring it in with a sharpie.

    The double ps button tap is $#@!ing genius. The extremely faster load times from inserting game disk already installed to playing is 500% better then the PS3. The responsive DS4 and the install while playing are the top 4 for me.

    Well this is a gaming console go figure. Who gives a $#@! what the PC could do 5 years ago. This is talking about a console that are running their own OS that isn't Windows. I'm pretty sure we all know what that tried and true format can do. All for $400, I think I'll take it.

    No more waiting and waiting when going to the PS store is awesome. The overall UI is spectacular. Best I've ever seen. I set up three profiles for me and my two sons and moving between them is so easy. Sony knocked the UI out of the park.

    Of course I should have specified what I meant lol.

    I thought it was only over the same wifi connection.

    How do people use vita for remote play say whilst at someone's house or work?

    Thanks
