    Ps4 wlol

    PS4 White Light Of Life (WLOL)

    Just got my launch PS4 from Amazon, had to take the free 3-7 day shipping. The PS4 shipping box is a lot smaller than expected, not much bigger than a PS2 box. It is also incredibly light.

    I carefully inspected the inside of the HDMI connector and used the cable that came with the box, it looks decent enough. It is a very snug fit and it's more than just slide on like most HDMI on TV's. I put it on and took it off about three times, no problems.

    Plugged it into HDMI2 on the HDTV, PS3 on HDMI1. Left HDTV select to HDMI1. The blue light comes on and it is steady but pulsing. I switched to HDMI2 for the PS4 and the blue light turned into a white light. That is the White Light Of Life (WLOL) that people don't seem to be mentioning, to counter this blinking blue light problem indicator. Anyway, my PS4 powered up nicely and I can't hear it at all.

    As for looks, it is a sexy angular box but it is so small and so black that it almost disappears on my HDTV stand shelf, so that I barely see it.


    Yeah, the Playstation Dynamic Menu (PDM) is a skeleton work in progress. They didn't deviate that much from the XMB but PDM improves in lots of areas, still needs a lot of improvement. Takes quite awhile to get just basic setup but it's not hard. Oh man, for those that are still waiting, this PS4 is a beast, maybe what the PS3 should have been but the technology wasn't there 7 years ago.

    I am jealous of everyone that has this right now.

    The PS3 design I thought was awful and nothing more than a cluster of "meh" in terms of design. I wonder how small this PS4 will get with a PS4 slim. o_O

    I had that blue pusling light when I first hooked up the system. It was working fine and I'm wondering if the blue pulsing is from installing a patch.

    The really big LOL was, what is this Live thing? Holy mackerel, this is where all the streaming stuff is located. Calling it Live has got to be one of the biggest ironies ever. Didn't even sort through everything but the TwitchTV is so easy to be a specatator plus there are people that saved their archives. I witnessed the unbelievable, people actually talking over their PS4 and live chat going on in the side bar. The player was responding to live chat and there didn't seem to be any lag at all. This is the new Coliseum, for spectators to be entertained by the combat. And the whole thing is working smooth as silk. The concept of audience for video game playing opens up all kinds of possibilities.
