The Playstation 4 came out last Friday on November 15th in North America. I enjoyed searching youtube for creative unboxing videos. One user boogie2988 decided to throw his Xbox 360 to make room for the PS4. Everything in this video was so surprising. When I first clicked on the video I thought that it was going to be a regular unboxing video.
IGN also did a creative unboxing video. They decided to have everyone in the office unbox the system at the same time. One individual decided he would unbox the Gamecube. I think he was a few generations off.
Finally I watched a more traditional Playstation 4 unboxing video. What is your favorite PS4 unboxing video? My favorite one was the unboxing by boogie2988, I thought his was the most entertaining.
The PS Vita is a top tier handheld system. I would even dare to say that it is the best handheld system we have seen so far. The graphics are amazing and it feels like I am playing a home console when I pick up my Vita. I picked up my Playstation Vita at Gamestop for $199. It came with a digital copy of the Walking Dead, a 4 gig memory card and 3g capabilities. I wish they included a case, but we will get into that later. Overall I’ve had a positive experience with my Vita.
What I like about the PS Vita
I love how the games look with the oled screen; they look just as good as some of my Xbox 360 games. I am currently playing Rayman Legends on my Vita and I really like how the game uses the touch screen. The touch screen works just as good as an iPhone screen. It is very responsive. The Playstation Vita also has two joysticks on it. This is a big improvement over the PSP; the PSP only had one joystick. I also like how the Vita can play PS3 games like Playstation All Stars and Sly Cooper Thieves in Time. I am really enjoying Playstation All Stars; I never owned a Playstation 3 so I couldn’t play the game before.
What I don’t like about the PS Vita
I don’t like the proprietary memory cards. They are way too expensive and they hardly hold any games. I currently own two memory cards a 4GB memory card and an 8GB memory card. If you want to get a 32GB memory card it will cost you $73 on amazon. If you want to get a 16GB memory card it will cost you $39 and an 8GB memory card will cost you $20 on amazon. I hope that Sony lowers the cost of these memory cards in the future. I also don’t like the rear touch pad on the Playstation Vita. It scratches way too easily; if you get a playstation Vita do not put it on a hard surface. The day after I got my Vita I noticed a huge scratch on the back of the system. It would have been nice if Sony included a few bumpers on the back.
The Playstation Vita has a very nice oled screen and touchpad. I like how the system has two joysticks and I also like how the system can play select Playstation 3 games. I don’t care for the proprietary memory cards; I wish Sony used regular SD cards. I also dislike the rear touch pad on the Vita, it scratches way to easily. The Playstation Vita does have some downfalls; however, it is a really powerful and capable system.
The release date for the Playstation 4 is November 15, 2013 in the United States and Canada. It is also coming out in Europe on November 29, 2013. It is going to be a very powerful and exciting next generation system. It is going to have 8GB of ram, a single chip custom processor (AMD) and a built in hard drive. It is also going to have a optical drive that reads Blue Ray and DVD discs. The PS4 will set you back $399 if you decide to pick it up on launch. Some of the games that are coming out for Playstation 4 include Killzone Shadow Fall, Destiny, Infamous Second Son and Battlefield 4. Are you going to pick up a PS4 on launch day?
