I'm pretty confident I never need anything until I see boxes and launch units then I feel compelled to buy shit I don't need.

For some reason I haven't vibed with the box styles

the original PS4 box was GOAT tho, idk why but the style of the console fit the style of the box so much more. Dat gloss

The Last of Us may be third person, but it is hardly third person.

I preordered mine today!

Now Gamestop just needs to have a good trade in offer.

"Super-charged" appears to be part of the Pro messaging. Makes me think they could have gotten away with calling it the Super PlayStation 4.

Pro in November, NS in March and Scorpio around 8 months later. Great way to end, start and end the (next) year.

Hopefully dbrand can sell some skins of these soon. I have a white Japanese ps4 and I'd like to stick with that color too.

Don't do this to me. I can only afford either the Pro or PS4 + Titanfall 2. I'm too weak for this.

Changed my stance, getting one purely for better PS VR. I already sold off most of my non VR games, but I can't wait for the improved VR IQ.

Was surprised, was able to pre order in store at best buy. Didn't wanna do it online since I hate shipping, especially new 400$ consoles.

This last stretch is going to feel so long. Especially since my 4k TV is getting delivered tomorrow.

I like how they still put that "don't return it to the store" shit on there.

If by some misfortune you do get a faulty unit, DO return it to the store, believe me.

I'm still not a fan of this mid gen upgrade philosophy, but I'm warmimg up to the Pro.

Seeing Sony making the right moves by trying not to divide the install base and give significant MP advantages, makes me think they get it.

Pro shapes up to be a fantastic piece of kit as well smart design over brute force that gives you the best bang for your buck.

Good luck on the launch Sony.

Same boat. I got the White Destiny PS4 back in 2014 (plain white, not the one with the Destiny markings). I like matte or metallic white for my electronics, but back then I had not yet discovered how good dbrand skins are -- will be fine enough for me to just cover a launch Pro in dbrand and call it a day, rather than wait for Sony to officially release a white model, which I personally think is inevitable. Probably with Destiny 2, even.

What's the greatest console box of all time? I'm pretty fond of the PS2



Just a big ol' blue box

Graah... I don't know. I've had a preorder on this from day one, and I got cold feet yesterday and cancelled it. PC + Wii U... Likely going to get a Switch. I've lived fine without the PS4, so do I really need it? I've even got the 4kTV. I just do not know.

Every time I see it, I'm re-surprised by how shit the design looks. Big Mac PS4 seems like the first thing you throw out during brainstorming before being scrapped immediately. Unfortunately, someone got their attachments fucked up and accidentally sent that design to the manufacturer.

Dem asterisks ;) lol. Was hoping for a better looking box this time around but oh well. Not much longer til I get mine! Is it bad that I'm pretty much getting this for Horizon:Zero Dawn and a hopeful bump for Persona 5 and Nioh? lol. I do have a 4K HDR TV for what it's worth :p.

First time ever that I preorder a console ia.
Same here. I usually wait for systems to have a decent library before I buy them but since the Pro is just an upgrade, I already have a game library ready and it lets me sell my base PS4 to put money towards it, so I couldn't resist.

I'm really looking forward to the IQ improvements.

At least they put a USB port on the back. That alone is my number one reason I'm getting the console.
