TOMB RAIDER: THE DEFINITIVE EDITION COMING TO PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE IN JANUARY
Crystal Dynamics’ critically acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot (a personal favorite of ours) will make its debut on next-gen consoles on January 28.
The new edition is fully rebuilt for next generation consoles, including a new character model for Lara, new TRESS FX technology (for more detailed hair and motion), and reworked shaders and lighting to show off every bead of sweat and drop of blood that Lara exudes.
The Definitive Edition will also include all of the DLC, downloadable versions of the comic, a mini art book, and developer videos.
If you pre-order the game you get limited edition packaging for the art book featuring never before seen concept art. Pre-order now.

AMAZON LEAKS DRIVECLUB’S RELEASE DATE
If the release date listed on Amazon.com is to be believed, Sony’s delayed racing game DriveClub will be released in the U.S. on April 1, 2014.
Originally a PS4-launch title, DriveClub was delayed in October because, according to Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida, ”the team requires more time in order to deliver on their vision.”
This would just barely put the game outside of the PlayStation 4 launch window (which covers launch till the end of March) but still would hit the “early 2014” release date they were promising when they delayed the game.
And of course, this could be an April Fool’s joke but Amazon isn’t known for their shenanigans on April 1. Also, April 1 is a Tuesday which is the day that Sony normally releases new games.
Pre-order DriveClub from Amazon and get the Amazon-exclusive instant access to the high-powered Mercedes supercar, access to the RUF RT12 R super car, and a driver level boost.
However, if you’re a PlayStation Plus member you will be able to download DriveClub for free when it launches April 1.

Q: Is it worth buying a ps4 at this stage, or should I get a ps3?
That’s a HUGE question. My first question for you would be, “do you currently have an Xbox 360?” (I’m assuming you don’t have a PS3 and you are specifically looking for a console.)
If you have an Xbox 360, I wouldn’t buy a PS3 or a PS4 right now because there just aren’t many games for the PS4 and most everything available for the PS3 is available on the Xbox 360 (with a few notable exceptions that will probably show up as downloadable titles on the PS4 eventually via the Galkai service).
If you don’t have an Xbox 360, then my followup question is, “are you in a hurry for the next generation or can you wait a couple of years?”
If you’re not in a hurry for next-gen, I would pick up a PS3 for the time being. In fact, you probably could get a great deal on a bundle right now, along with some excellent deals on games.
Sony plans on supporting the PS3 for a few more years and it’s going to take nearly that long for the PS4 to offer a robust catalog that can only be found on that system.
In the end, it’s really a question of “can you wait?” I have a PS4 and I have only been playing Resogun on it (which is a digital title). I have no interest in Knack and Killzone has my interest piqued but it looks very similar to previous entries in the franchise (the same problem I have with Microsoft’s Halo series).
My point is that I’m still doing the bulk of my gaming on my Xbox 360/PS3 and the PS4 is being neglected for now. I know that will change over time though. I got the PS4 at launch because I needed it because I work on a gaming website, otherwise I would have waited myself.
I hope this helps!

REPORTS OF PS4 ‘BLUE LIGHT OF DEATH’ FILL FORUMS AND COMMENT BOARDS
Today I planned on posting my PlayStation 4 unboxing photos but since my PlayStation 4 hasn’t worked since receiving it yesterday, my enthusiasm for posting the pictures has left me.
That’s right, my brand new PlayStation 4 was dead on arrival. It would turn on and display a blue wavy light on the box but would never transmit video to the TV.
Once I got over my initial frustration, I checked Amazon (where I got it) to see if other people were in the same boat as me. Not only was I not alone, but there were lots of people with similar problems.
Naturally, when seeing user reviews about a product that has as vocal a fan base as gaming consoles do, most reviews should be taken with a grain of salt, but review after review I read people having a similar experience to my own.
After further research, it turns out that these problems aren’t just plaguing Amazon purchasers. Users on NeoGaf and PlayStation 4 support forum are reporting the same issues with consoles they bought at Best Buy, GameStop, and other outlets.
Some are claiming this problem is as widespread as Microsoft’s RROD issue with the Xbox 360 but it’s too soon to really know the extent of the issues and Sony hasn’t issued a statement about them. What is known for sure is that the issue is rampant and Sony support is being hammered with calls, having wait times up to 2 hours in some cases, and forums are filling with reports about the issue.
Hardware failures are going to happen. That’s a fact. I replaced three Xboxes (under warranty) so I know this personally. It doesn’t make it any easier to deal with the disappointment of pre-ordering the product in June to only have it non-functioning when it arrives in November though.
We will update you as this story evolves. In the meantime, how’s your PlayStation 4 experience been? Let us know!
**Editor’s note: the above comic from Ctrl+Alt+Del was created Thursday after Tim heard the initial reports of faulty PlayStation 4s. On Friday when his PlayStation 4 arrived, it died two minutes into setup. Receiving the ‘Pulsing Blue Dickpunch of Sadness’ as well.**

GOOD MORNING SLEEPY HEAD! STAY UP ALL NIGHT PLAYING YOUR NEW PLAYSTATION 4? HOW IS IT?!?
We know many of you went to midnight launches to pickup the PlayStation 4 last night and we would love to hear about your experiences so far.
Were you able to get the patch downloaded (how long did it take)? What was the first game you played? Did you skip out of work today so you could play the new console?
