Some awesome deals on the PS4 at media Markt at the moment...

PS4 with 3 games - 449chf https://shop.mediamarkt.ch/de/gaming...usverkauf_ps4=

PS4 with Destiny - 449chf https://shop.mediamarkt.ch/de/gaming...l/idp1pgls64xi

Considering most reputable places are 449chf for just the console, that ain't bad.
Same offer currently goes for the FIFA 15 bundle - https://shop.mediamarkt.ch/de/gaming...5/idpo5ca85t26

Played the demo and couldn't stand it... story is weak and the gameplay was very repetitive. Enemy AI was also terrible, and according to reviews that hasn't changed.
Agreed, the enemy AI is shocking.. Although its a good game to be fair, I think it has a limited lifespan.. The multiplayer is pretty rubbish too, control is the only really playable crucible game.

On a completely unrelated topic, the new FIFA is brilliant. Hoping it'll be the first of quite a few decent titles coming out on the PS4 over the next few months.

I didn't like the FIFA Demo... it was better once I turned all of the auto-assists off in the menu, but still I didn't feel like I had a fine level of control over the players. Also too many goals once you work out what works and what doesn't.

PES 2015 Demo on the other hand seems to play beautifully... you fight for every chance on goal and none of it feels scripted.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Im considering going with this deal, you basically get the games for free! Would it be safe to say they come with english language as an option you think?

Hardly any games in Media Markt come with an English option... most have only the main native languages of CH (German, French, Italian). Some may have it, but I haven't seen any yet.

Knack and Killzone are pretty crap anyway, so I would get another bundle like FIFA 15/Destiny or something, then you can theoretically at least sell the game for around 50 chuffs.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

English language depends on the game. So far most things I have purchased here for PS3 and PS4 do have English.
I have purchased Watchdogs, Killzone and Fifa 14 for PS4 here and all three of those are in English as well. I don't know about Knack and Infamous Second son.
I generally order from UK but sometimes there are some good deals on older games to be found here.

Used to love PES back in the day, but went down hill over the last few years.. Most of the design team ended up working for EA sports in the end and everyone I know plays FIFA now so my choice is already made. Although agree about the goals, the lobbed through ball glitch ruined FIFA 14.. although a lot better in 15 it still is a bit too easy score sometimes.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

I can totally recommend the Shadow of Mordor. I'm neither a big fan of Tolkien, nor of sandboxes and I can't stop playing

In the meantime completed The Last of Us (which is also great). Anyone wants to trade? I'd be interested either in the new Wolfenstein or Watch Dogs.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Got a questions for you PS4 owners here;

I see a lot of retailers are selling the "CH Version" of the PS4, for example here:

http://www.microspot.ch/msp/de/gamin...ion-0000747378

What exactly does "CH Version" mean? Are the menus all in german and can't be changed to english or something?

I get my games from amazon.co.uk, would they work with the CH Version of PS4?

I now have the following to trade (or sell):
  • Wolfenstein (Awesome)
  • The Last Of Us (Amazing)
  • Shadow of Mordor (Awesome, will be finished with it in a week or so)

If anyone has anything decent let me know.

I'd be interested in Shadows of Mordor. I'm not sure what I have to trade that you don't already have; Killzone, Watch Dogs, Tomb Raider, CoD Ghosts (not finished, but not played in a while).

Still making my way, slowly, through Diablo and started to pick up on Wolfenstein again. Daughter has ordered my Alien: Isolation for my bday and AC Unity comes out next week. So much goodness, so little time...

I'm not sure myself, to be honest. I thought you could change the menu language to whatever you wanted, and games are not region-locked or anything.

Correct. This is commonly available info for a year now.

Sadly none of those interest me so much. Alien Isolation when youre done with it, perhaps.

I think the CH version just comes with the Swiss plug, and the paperwork in the box is in French german Italian.
and yes games from uk work fine.

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Does anybody know if a USA bought PS4 will work perfectly in Switzerland?
Power issues? (apart from the obvious plug issue)
European bought games work ok?
Online gaming possible?
Really worth it?

Re: The Playstation 4 Current/Future Owners Thread

Since this thread is relatively active at the moment, anyone heard about the movie "Hardcore"? It's filmed from a FPS shooter PoV.



I think it's very well done. Read more about it here.

How is that related to PS4? If it's a movie put it in a movie thread so this topic can stay about PS4.

Because it's gaming-related. Sort of.
