Thanks for your answer. I am sorry, but what do you mean by Bundled games? Like packs of games? Or game + expansion?

Also, I've read elsewhere that controllers are not region locked :S
Games included with the purchase of a console. They can be offered on disc or as a digital voucher for download.

Other consoles (eg Nintendo 3DS) feature free games already installed, but I don't know if that's ever been done with the PS4.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Bundled <x> just means that instead of just getting the vanilla console with the default number of controllers (1 i think for PS4), you will be getting the vanilla console + x, where x is an extra game, or extra controller, etc.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I picked up Metro Redux and Wolfenstein Old Blood and while I haven't played Wolf yet (which I know will be good), I had a quick blast on Metro and it's pretty damn awesome. Visuals are very good and it seems to run at a constant 60fps. There's a lot of content for the money!

I must admit I am very much liking this remastering of classic games, many of which I never played and now get the chance to in upgraded form.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Metro Redux I really enjoyed too. Haven't played last Light yet on that combo but I will get to it.

Just ordered the Final Fantasy expansion Heavensward and Batman Arkham Knight. Will finally be bringing my PS4 over to Switzerland after getting a flat of my own and checking that a PS4 is OK for hand luggage. Sturdy travel case is in the works.

Following on with the overall PS4 discussion that has been going on, I agree that for the last year since launch its still been a bit of a PS3.5 but after E3 I'm more confident that some big hitting titles are on the way that will make more use of the systems capabilities.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I blitzed through Wolfenstein [New Order] - it was mostly brilliant with a couple of frustrating moments. Graphics, sound, atmosphere all top notch.

I've completed it if anyone wants to give me 30 francs for it.

Down to 279 CHFs - I'd be quick though, it might be a mistake. They have it scheduled as their deal this coming Saturday at 299 CHFs...

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I couldn't find an answer with a quick scan of this thread so apologies for the dumb question.

Has anyone ordered from Amazon.co.uk to Switzerland and what happens at this end?
I wanted to order MGSV as it looks amazing.

Cheers

Plenty of times and I've never had to pay duty for individual games.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Thank you for such a quick response. I suppose that bodes the question what is the amount if they spot it?

I'm not sure what the cutoff is, but I once ordered and received 2 games together and had to pay some import duty. Don't recall how much exactly, but it was more than paying for the separate postage.

I never played any MGS games, but this has piqued my interest. I wonder if I should pick up Ground Zeroes first to lead me into it?

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I played MGS and MGS 2 but never picked up the others or the psp version etc.

This looks like it changes a bit of the formula from before and isnt all just about how sneaky you can be.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I had ordered the PS4 when it was CHF 249.
They confirmed the order and then 02 weeks later, simply cancelled it saying that 'we messed up'. Loads of follow ups with their Social media team did not help.
But I did get a heads up about their promotion which finished last week and I got myself a 1TB PS4 at CHF 304. Some consolation I guess.
Now I am excited about playing some games.
Question for the group:
I often bought games from the UK (Thehut.co.uk). Dont think they are as good now. Any other options which are good?

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I was under the impression games were reasonably priced here, but i see there is 15-20 euro difference in price between getting it at the media markt here and in my home country. Guess i'll be picking some new ones up on my next visit.

looking forward to FIFA 16 release this month
