Looks like 2 controllers is confirmed.  I've seen a few people posing online with 2.

Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

So apparently there will be a special edition ps4 pro of kingdom of hearts III. I am not so much surprised at that, but I would have thought if anything about special edition ps4 pro's got announced it would have been spiderman... It's got to be coming surely?

There were leaks. But I hope the one leaked is fake. That thing looked like shit all around.


This one that was shown on a few websites looks so much better -

Only thing I would have changed about the second one is that I would have made the controller more resemble Spider-man's actually face.

This link makes comment that both pro and standard editions will be available:

https://press-start.com.au/news/p...

Can't find anything to back that up. Only the pro available from EB over here at the moment anyway.

I'm also confused about kingdom hearts iii, I was waiting for news about its availability and noticed one on eBay for $1600... Was this a Japan exclusive?

As far as both a pro and slim version of the console, It would be the first time that has happened. I dont personally expect a first time. But I could be wrong.

The slim version is up on game.co.uk but it's not been available over here, yet at least. Sent the question to EB, get a feeling that a shrug of shoulders will be my response though.

It would definitely be odd if they made both a slim and pro version.

They've certainly done it:

https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2...

The only place i can see to get it is:

https://www.game.co.uk/en/m/limit...

Because nothing seems to indicate there will be other avenues open to me of getting it, I am using a convoluted way, that is well beyond favourite, to get it via game. EB responded stating there is no word of getting that version from their suppliers, but i hope that changes so i can cancel my game preorder and get it via an easier method.

I wonder what the price difference would be. Cant see it being feasible to get the slim unless the price point is quite a bit different.

Now we have the 500 million ps4 - it is a hell of an achievement to sell that many consoles - hats off.  Anyway 50,000 units of this ps4 pro:


Will go on sale, sounds like quite a lot.

Whoa, been checking EB since waking up. Had a 2 hour meeting at work - i kid you not they went on sale and were sold out during that time - frantically tried to find somewhere else to get one, found one remaining place and it wouldn't accept my address as a delivery address. While on a work phone conference i just kept resubmitting and resubmitting and finally it inexplicably worked. I have no idea what i agreed to on the conference, as i was paying no attention.

Curious, it's not gone pre-order yet in the US? Anyone know if Europe has gone yet? People are buying these at a significantly higher cost than the sale price on eBay... You'd have to be bonkers to pay those sums if the releases haven't happened across a majority of the globe.

Well, updated news. No one in the states is taking pre-orders on this. Its going to be a live order online only through different retailers on the 24th. No mention of how many are going to be available at which retailers or which retailers are even going to carry them. PScom page still doesnt list anything else.

Interesting and kind of a nice way to do it, from your side though are you concerned, or are you covered?

some people are paying more on eBay for one of these than you'd pay for a 20th anniversary one...  I think it's bonkers to pay so much, game in the uk haven't sold theirs yet - their preorder starts on the 14th.

I'm not covered. I am kind of a little freaked out I may miss it at the base price

I have just been reading about the uk release. Apparently they sold out quickly, but articles still say within a matter of hours. I think you'll be fine as long as you religiously keep an eye out - Best of luck with it though.

With additional related news, I just read this on the Suns website:

For the very lucky few who can get them, we have a few 'extra special' hardware units with serial numbers that commemorate important events in the history of PlayStation," Lempel explained.

"Keep your eyes peeled for these 'extra special' serial numbers like 09995 (U.S. Launch Date of the original PlayStation – September 9th, 1995), 01115 (U.S. launch date of PS4 – November 15, 2013) and 01013 (U.S. launch date of PS VR – October 13, 2016)."

That would have to be an eBay scalper a dream, personally I'd love to know what the difference is.

Well, sadly the PS4s went live and were snapped up quicker than a lb of cocaine in Compton. So ... I had to buy one from Ebay.   Ill feel better once its here.

Sorry man, meant to jump online to wish you luck with getting the ps4 and wish you a happy Birthday. About the controllers - That copper looks fantastic, how many controllers have you got and have you got them all? Sorry to hear about the 500 million ps4, are you going to open it when it arrives?
