If I did get John then you may be out of luck. He wasn't shy about taking a wee break outside after delivering mine lol. Although he was 1min 30 ahead of schedule (Y)

PSN is still having issues so even if it arrives you won't be able to sign in sadly. I've gave up for now. Got tired of entering my password over and over.

 

Hope it arrives safely though!

That sucks, the waiting is the hardest part.

 

Waiting is the worst part...

 

For me, the worst part was seeing "Out for Delivery" when doing the status updates... seems like it took forever...

Just for the lulz I decided to see how bad the wobble is and for whatever reason, mine doesn't :laugh: Still just the same 3 rubber feet on the bottom of the console too. Edit: never mind, only way I could get it to wobble was to put my finger tip in the side groove and then it wobbles. (trying not to touch the shiney plastic :p). Doesn't seem like it will be a problem, as I was really trying to wobble it with force to the top and it wouldn't budge.

 

Did you get yours yet, AB?

Yea you need to put SOME force to have it wobble.  That was one of the first things I checked after coming to grips that my first PS4 was DOA.

Likewise.   Was pretty upset when my replacement PS4 had the out for delivery status from 8:15AM -> 5:15PM (I finished work and rushed home to wait for it) after doing constant refreshes, the status had been changed to: "Customer will be contacted to arrange delivery time".  Wasn't too pleased, called purolator and got lucky.  They had it, but were closing at 6.  I got there at 5:55PM last Friday (they are close Sat/Sun).

Still unable to do the day 1 download/sign into PSN.

 

Pretty much have a useless brick right now. It's a little annoying - Sony knew how many consoles they'd sold, so should have had the server capacity to deal with it.

Received ps4 today, very pleased with it. Even smaller in person.

Only gripe is I didn't appear to have a 14 day play station + code with my console :/

There is no code! It's only available for new signups and is available through the store, or well it would be if you could get into it

So it sounds like that even with Sony's best efforts to prepare, psn is still very spotty on launch day.

If its anything like here in the US, it could be very spotty over the next 2-3 days.

I noticed the PSN has been super slow the past couple days here in Canada.  Took a solid 30 seconds for it to get past the blue screen on my PS4.

      Cyberpunk 2077 is back on the PlayStation Store, but with a warning for PS4 players
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Over six months after being ejected from the PlayStation Store, Cyberpunk 2077 has now returned, finally giving back PlayStation players the choice of purchasing it digitally. Sony pulled out the CD Projekt RED-developed game from its store only a week after the launch as major gameplay and performance issues became apparent, especially on old-gen base consoles.

      The developer has so far released a multitude of updates to the game across all platforms aimed at improving stability, performance, and fixing scores of bugs. The latest major update, Patch 1.23, landed only last week with another serving of fixes.

      While Sony has deemed the game ready to be let back into the PlayStation Store, there is still a warning attached for prospective buyers. Both CD Projekt RED and Sony have stated the base PlayStation 4 will experience performance issues with Cyberpunk 2077, and the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5 are the recommended systems for playing. Updates will continue to drop with more optimizations.

      CD Projekt RED is also developing a dedicated next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077, alongside a Witcher 3 upgrade, and that is still slated to land sometime in the second half of 2021. All current owners of the game on Xbox and PlayStation consoles will receive the upgrade for free.

      Now that we're getting Windows 11 and things are starting to change up more than the past few years with Windows 10, I un-pinned the old Windows 10 thread and started this one.
       
      With the leaked build and the event coming on the 24th things are getting interesting once more.

      Cyberpunk 2077 is coming back to Sony's PlayStation Store on June 21
      by Subir Kathuria



      CD Projekt S.A., the parent company of Cyberpunk 2077 developer has announced in a regulatory filing that the game would be re-listed on Sony’s PlayStation Store on June 21. Sony has agreed to reinstate the game more than six months after it was removed on December 17, 2020, due to crippling issues with gameplay, primarily on the old-gen consoles.



      In a statement to Polygon, Sony said the following regarding the game's return:

      Cyberpunk 2077 went to sell over 13.7 million copies before the end of 2020 despite its controversial launch. While Sony removed the game from its store and gave refunds to players, Microsoft instead kept the listing and offered refunds without any questions, and also added a warning label for Xbox One players. Due to the issues, an investor even sued CD Projekt for making false claims and releasing it in an unfinished state

      Some of the launch issues ranged from the game not utilizing all cores of AMD's Ryzen CPUs to 8MB save file limits which corrupted save games files. Later, CD Projekt Red delayed promised DLC's and vowed to fix the issues with the game first, and has since released multiple major bug fixing updates.

      Sony announces Airpeak S1 drone tailored for its Alpha series cameras
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony has just introduced its professional drone dubbed the Airpeak S1. As per the Japanese company, the Airpeak S1 is the world's smallest drone that can fly with a full-size mirrorless Alpha camera onboard.

      The drone is equipped with a proprietary motor and a 17" propeller for stable flight even during windy conditions. Sony claims that the drone has a lightweight yet sturdy body. The Airpeak has a maximum speed of 55 miles per hour (90km/h). It can withstand wind speeds of up to 44.7mph.

      It uses image sensors, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), barometric pressure, and infrared ranging to optimize the flight path. There's an Electric Speed Controller (ESC) for high maneuverability and an obstacle detection system to avoid mishaps.

      The Airpeak S1 is compatible with Sony's Alpha 7S series, Alpha 7R series, and the Alpha 9 series. The latest Alpha 1 capable of shooting footage in 8k is also compatible with this drone.



      Sony's Airpeak Base web application enables users to create flight plans and check the vitals of the drone before the next flight. Sony claims that it is possible to make the drone fly along a predetermined route without real-time input. Customers can use the Android and iOS companion app to track the drone, check battery status, and even access gimbal settings. The drone offers a dual operation mode that enables one user to control the drone while the other operates the camera.

      The Airpeak S1 drone is priced at $9,000 and will ship to customers in the fall of 2021. The retail package includes an additional set of propellers. However, users will have to purchase a gimbal separately. As per Sony, the drone is made in Japan and comes with an Airpeak Protect Plan, which covers accidental damage.
