Yea, no extra controller in current bundles. (Controller costs $60 separately in the US)

 

Headset:

Its just a single earbud with mic that connects to your controller.

Be interesting to see how the PS4 is received. I think it will sell well initially due to the lower costs but after a few months the lack of features will really stand out. Very little incentive to own the PS4 over the PS3 at the moment.

I looked into it, it says PC, X360, PS3 and PS4. So not really an exclusive but people compare exclusives to the PS4 and Xbox One and its currently not planned for the Xbox One.

I'm not sure if it is just a timed exclusive like TitanFall and will be made available for the Xbox One at a later date but it looks likely considering they are making it for the X360.

I too believe it will sell very well cause of the cost, The new features Sony have discussed and shown are the improved game graphics, PS Eye which can be controller-free (No stupid Orbs), Cloud/Dedicated Servers, Gaikai Cloud which allows you to play someones else game over the internet (So you can play for them at a hard stage so they can pass it), lots of social features which I dont really care for but you can upload videos, have cross game chat and do a bunch of other stuff, AUX connection on your controller is pretty handy too, touch pad on controller, seamless gaming which basically means no more load screens,  Smart phone interaction (Also Vita but I dont own one), Instant On/Off which allows you to turn off the console mid game and when you turn it on you are exactly where you left off, remote downloads via smart phone, remote play, 
 
Here are some of the social features:
 
 
There are quite a few new features I think, If you mean in comparison to the Xbox One which has the TV features and Kinect.
The TV features to me are virtually useless cause its only for Cable TV in the US, that plus my Samsung TV does the same for free-to-air TV here in Australia.
The Kinect on the other hand does seem better at this stage, but I hope the PS Eye will have similar features like menu swipes with hands, facial recognition for login and voice commands but Sony hasn't mentioned them as of yet. But I do like the fact they dont require the glowing orb move controllers anymore.

In the fact that it is not available for the Xbox;

http://www.oddworld....es/new-n-tasty/

 

Unless you just ment it in derogatory terms towards the actual game itself, which is a cult classic.

 

 

Might not be your cup of tea, but it was a huge game on the PS1 and lots of people wanted this remake.

You have a very selective definition of "exclusive".  :rofl:

PLATFORMS: Sony PlayStation®4, Sony PlayStation®3, Sony PlayStation®Vita, Wii U, Windows, Linux, OS X

 

Also, where exactly did I say that it "wasn't my cup of tea".  Oh right, nowhere.

This is a news post on this website which states the exclusives:

http://www.neowin.ne...exclusive-games

 

Look at the Xbox games which are multi-platform but in that list, same as the Sony list.

 

Its only exclusive to each other, so if a game is available for the PS4 and not to the Xbox One its a PS4 exclusive and vice versa. 

I didnt make the rules, its the same as when people say TitanFall is an exclusive on Xbox when its also multi-platform.

 

I'm just following the trend.

 

Also above link mentions additional exclusives.

 

Additional Exclusives: Gran Turismo, DC Universe Online, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Black Light: Retribution, Mercenary Kings, Outlast, War Thunder, Primal Carnage, Transistor and Ray's the Dead.

 

Also a major Swedish game retailer (CDON) has listed three games which are currently unconfirmed for the PS4 to public: These games are 'Evolve', 'Demon’s Souls 2' and 'TitanFall' for the PS4.

Its possible the retailer made a mistake, but Demon Souls is a PS exclusive and Evolve is a new IP originally developed by THQ but bought by Take Two Studios, CDON is considered a very reliable retailer.

You can actually ask Respawn Entertainment yourself about TitanFall for the PS4 here: info@respawn.com

You might be surprised at what they tell you. :)

Ugh that interface looks awful, the headset couldn't be cheaper if they tried, the controller is too big and the ps eye will be a waste of time much like it was on the ps3. At least it's cheaper and there are some games to look forwards to

Thanks for laying out all the facts in one place, this is very helpful. I wish someone would do the same for the X1 as I'm trying to decide which I get first. There are enough games I want to play at launch for the ps4 to make it appealing, not to mention the price.

 

I'm kind of shocked at the packed in headset. It looks very cheap, even cheaper than the one MS bundled with the 360. I know some were bashing the X1 for not including one, but frankly I would hate to use the ps4 headset for very long. Earbud style designs are very uncomfortable for me.

 

I'm also wondering why they are only supporting Bluetooth 2.1. I guess it could be cost, but are 4.0 chips that much more?

 

I'd like too see more of the OS UI, because that one screenshot looked too 'busy' to me. Something feels uncomfortable.

I'm sure there will be one, but there's been no Gran Turismo announced for PS4.
