Don't really care for this.
So the guy is in love with Knack. Apparently sucks at the game, so he watches a chick's video clip on how to beat the monster. His friend then whines about needing help on Killzone so he has to download it. He bought the full game online? There goes $60 bucks. Continues to play Knack while it's downloading, the chick messages him and he is happy. He jumps onto Killzone to "help" his friend even though he dies. The girl thinks the two guys are having fun, so she downloads the game as well... on her Vita?
But in all seriousness, all that stuff screams casual gaming to me. Just give me my party chat and I'm good to go. Downloading while I'm playing sounds nice and all, but probably not ideal when you're playing online. You're going to lag like crazy...
I've got a preorder in on the PS4. I'm not huge on the social features, but I'm a fan of those Sony exclusives.
If you got 7:37 to kill, watch Conan at E3. Pretty funny.
With the launch on Friday, There are already reports of Hardware failure and system issues.

Quite expected from a launch console, but Sony better get on this quick. I am picking one up on Friday so hopefully I don't get any issues.
I've got two on their way here. (Originally preordered one and the wife said "Awesome, but what are you going to play on.")
Yeah, that's always a risk with launch consoles. Hopefully yours will be okay. By the way, what game(s) are you getting Shaddy?

Not surprisingly, Knack got a terrible review. I didn't like how it looked from the start when they were showcasing it at E3. Looks like they sacrificed a lot of the story/game play to show off its graphics. Launch games tend to do that.
Yeah the Main guy from Sony said its a really small amount of consoles affected. But I'm hoping to pick up Assassins Creed 4, Killzone, and Battlefield 4. IF not then I will stick to playing DC Unierse which is free to play
