Thanks for the info Jeff.

So, since Jack Tretton is the one who said the PS4 supports used games. I wonder what would happen if he was to step down and somebody else took over his job, would that no longer serve as "permission" to sell used games??

But if I was putting out the PS4, I'd hide the PS1 and PS2 startup sequences in that firmware and show them when the system clock matches up with those consoles' launch dates.

This is a brilliant idea.

I'm curious if the plane was in 1080p at 60fps or not.

Goddamn the PS1 had a good launch screen, maybe the best ever.

as for syncing, i am guessing, xbox is one system so it didn't need to sync. sony has ps3, ps4 and vita and they all show and register trophies at that same time so it needs to sync somehow.

i wonder if 360 and xbone works this way now?

that's not what syncing means in this case, i only have a ps3 & you always have to manually sync just to get any changes to appear on the sony site, otherwise all trophies are strored locally on the console

it takes a while since i bet it's manually going through each game, so the more trophies/games you have, the longer it takes (i can confirm it taking longer as i got more trophies & started more games with 0 or 1 trophy out of 20+ each)

to speed this up on ps4, they probably have a timestamp system that would skip already synced trophies, probably like SVN/GIT/dropbox version control

I'm glad Jeff is down with Octodad.

I've always been a fan of the Dualshock myself, though the 360 pad is a fine controller too. So hearing that both of them are improved is great, and given that I'm completely in camp PS4 for launch at least, it's good to hear that you feel so positively about the new model.

I'll just enjoy your coverage and wait for the next Mass Effect to back a horse. I hope its a Steam Machine...
