Isn't the light at the back of the PS4 controller meant to be able to talk to something they're implementing now?

im sure it works with the camera, which is an inferior peripheral to kinect and has no practical uses in games. i wouldnt mind cause it can be cool when its changing colour in games but you cant switch it off :|

More I play World of Tanks the more I realise I am really quite shit at it. Good job I am playing with a guy who is good at it otherwise I think I would have lost interest a few weeks ago. That said, would have been a shame because its a bloody good game.

Borrowed ryse from a friend I stead of buying it, apparently it's quite short. Its good so far though, very basic but enjoyable. Looks fantastic as well. Its achieved killzone levels of graphics but has also been able to be fun, which killzone failed epically at.

Finished Wolfenstein yesterday, will be starting up another playthrough soon, so I can make the other choice and see what happens.
Really enjoyed it though. Good, daft fun. Only encountered a couple of glitches (not downloaded any updates for it as I'm not using my PS3 online at the moment) too, and they weren't exactly game-breaking, just a bit annoying (worst one being my ironsights zoom getting stuck on, then stuck off, then it just kind of worked itself out after I picked up a weapon that can only hipfire).

Tempted by Watch_Dogs next. Will probably chat to the guys in store about it first.

That on top of a slew of "Meh" reviews makes Watch Dogs release hilarious.

Watch dogs is a great game. It doesn't live up to the hype, but it was never going to. You can compare it to GTA V or Assassins Creed IV, as it has some similarities with both, but its not quite on the same level as those 2. Its an interesting idea and a great game but not a game of the year candidate.

Bleh. I really don't want another Xbox, but a good controller is so damn important to gaming. I don't want Kinect, their stupid interface, their entertainment nonsense, any of it. Why can Sony just copy their controller then I can be happy.

Speaking of controllers, Valve's pushed theirs (+consoles) back until 2015 now. Looks like 'Valve Time' strikes again. :(

Hopefully we'll actually get something good on PS4. I assume this is because games with gold is coming to Xbox one. All round win for me unless the trend of crap free games on PS4 continues.

Annoyingly there have been some good arcade games that would be better choices. Only worthwhile game i'ved had from it was resogun on day one. Stryder would have been nice
