    How do you get the resolution set manually instead of being on "automatic"? I can't login to PSN so I'm doing offline Botzone for KZ:SF and I swear it's in 720p.

    Upgraded the hard drive to 1TB without any real issues. Took a while to figure out how to set up a second account. Biggest hassle I've had is that the PS4 attempts to do multiple downloads at the same time, rather than doing them one at a time like the PS3 does. This means downloading all the free games plus cross buy titles has taken a lot longer than I expected. It also plays some ambient noise while on the home screen, not quite as noticeable as the Vita version. Speaking of Vita, all my Vita trophies now show up in the Trophy list, and the rareness score for trophies is pretty cool. Otherwise set up has been pretty simple, most everything has worked first try. Played a few levels of Resogun. Played a few levels of Flower. Still trying to download Blacklight: Retribution and Warframe. Might go try Contrast in a moment. Haven't even popped the drive yet, should probably try some disc games. Maybe a movie or two. Really wish there was an official PS4 remote control though. And I'm still waiting on my controller charging station.

    I've played six or seven hours of Killzone, an hour or two of Resogun, an hour of Knack, bits and pieces of Battlefield 4, Madden, and The Playroom. Through everything I've done--user interface, PlayStation Store, camera log-in, Twitch streaming, game and patch downloading…

    PS4 has been an absolute dream.

    Can you break the encryption on the hdmi port using a hdcp stripper?

    When you download the fw update, does that enable blu-ray playback? I read that ps4 was not compatible with 2d/3d blu rays out of the box. Do they work after you dl the fw?

    I haven't been online so I haven't done the new update, as a little scared about that. But I have plugged it in and played it for about an hour and no problems.

    I have to say....I've only played through one mission of Killzone...but I don't get why this game didn't get higher reviews. I really like it. And the controller is sooooo much better.

    I can actually play FPS on console now with out feeling like I'm all over the place. The sticks are responsive yet have some resistance.

    So far I am very pleased. I might actually be good at FPS on console now, lol.

    Figured out how to do this with my monitor. Said the input was 1920x1080p but it sure as hell doesn't look that way in offline botzone with no PSN connection.

    Played the SP and it looks an entire world apart compared to the MP. I'm talking night and day stuff right here. What is going on?

    After worrying for an hour or two if I should "turn it on", I gotta say.. even being offline It's everything I hoped for. I'm sure being connected to the PSN is 100x better and then some.

    1.50 Firmware downloaded and installed without issue - without me even knowing - and I played an hour of Killzone campaign without a single issue. Looked great, sounded great, and the controller felt amazing - though I will have to get use to R2/L2 being for shoot/aim. Only came away with one issue, and that's HDMI continues to play audio so I kind of have a TV speaker/center speaker echo thing going on. No idea how to fix it, so I just turned my TVs volume to 0. As expected the fans turn on quite a bit when in a game, though unless installing Killzone wasn't quite done it was over quite fast.. and the drive made next to no noise, I'm sure my PS3 Slim makes more.

    Now, I couldnt log into the PSN so I couldn't try downloading something to see if I'll have issues like that H1ll dude, but I'm assuming that was a PSN issues since it was pre-release. I had to pack it back up since I gave it away to be used as my Christmas gift. Boy I can't wait until I get this baby back.

    Just wait. Once the story starts picking up in the later chapters, it gets to a whole 'nother level. Shadow Fall is like the hardcore Killzone fan's dream game.

    I dont know why but when I turn on my ps4, I get a black screen, so when I turn it off and unplug the hdmi and replug it back in. I turn it back on and the ps logo shows. Is it this HDMI wire or do I need to send it in to get it fixed?

    Before you do anything, make sure that both ends of the hdmi cable are seated properly. Try another HDMI port. My Sony tv is quirky, if i run the HDMI cable to the sound bar amp and then the soundbar to the tv, the picture will go in and out. However, if i run it to a side HDMI port, it works fine. Been like that since my PS3.

    So try that, then maybe switch cables. I used some $5 cables from monoprice and the pic is sick. Good luck

    Almost forgot, when i used to lose picture and then it would come back a few seconds later with my PS3, i found that using an audio optical cable also helped. Something about plugging into that HDMI port with ARC (i believe that's audio return) was screwing it up.

    I haven't had a problem with my HDMI cable, at all. Plugged it in and it worked perfect.

    As for the noise you guys have been talking about mine is actually pretty quiet so I don't know so far everything seems alright. I hope I'm not jinxing myself.

    I found out my PS4 was a girl last night. Thank God! Because it would have been awkward it wasn't....

    With that said, I have been more than satisfied with my PS4.

    Glad to see many having great experience with theirs. The reviews on Amazon had me a bit worried, made it seemed like many where failing.

    I didn't even bother trying the included cable. I figured it would be $#@!. The ones I have now work awesome so why switch?

    I had a pretty bad experience to start with. I installed KZ then patched it. It froze on the menu screen and wouldn't shut off. I had to unplug it to restart. When i rebooted the system worked fine but i kept getting an error when booting KZ and it would start. Deleted game data and tried again and same thing. So I had to reformat the HDD that took 2 hours. But all seems well now. Loving how fluid and fast everything is. Not to mention KZ is great.

    All they need to do now is put a pause option for downloads and make it to where you can choose to download game patches without doing it automatically. Then I will have nothing to complain about.
