    Having no PSN here in the Philippines holds me back in buying PS4.

      you can use a US PSN account since meron naman binibenta na PSN Cards on major game stores :)

    • Jan says:

      you can register a US account. just put any random valid US address. that’s what i did. and tama si felix may mga psn cards naman na binebenta dito.

    • Hen-Sheen says:

      Also, make sure you have a decent ISP with an Internet speed of 4 to 8 Mbps. If you have less than 1 Mbps, the odds are near impossible! Just a suggestion…

  2. Justin says:

    The fact that I could plug my earphones directly onto the controller and use it brought a huge smile to my face. Kaso, 6.5 hrs lang yung controller battery life nya? Aysus!

    • buratatat says:

      you could always charge it and dude 6.5 hours of gameplay is not good. give yourself and your console a rest.

    • Justin says:

      @buratatat: I agree. But I was not talking about playing 6.5hrs straight. I typically play 2-3hours per day. Its still a hassle if I need to charge my controller every other day.

  3. Jolrael says:

    actually there is no Philippine PSN account until now.. idk if der will be in the future but i guess sticking to a US PSN Account is better.

  4. alpha boy says:

    psn is not impt you can use us account anyway, and media files isnt important its a gaming console not a media player

    Hail to the king of gaming consoles. The hardware is good at a nice price. Mahal daw ang mga games? I am not a gamer but i’d like to try this.

    • Hen-Sheen says:

      There are games for PS4 that has a price range of P900 – P3,000. Depends on the game you’re buying. Editions like Normal, Special, Limited, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, & the list goes on and on. Datablitz: *sigh*……… Take your pick!

  7. Hen-Sheen says:

    I’m buying a PS3 as my last console. The PS4 is awesome, but the specs are similar to a PC. X86 architecture? Since the Nintendo/Sega wars back in the 80′s/90′s, Sony have dominated the Video Game industry thanks to it’s innovative creator Ken Kutaragi.

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

  16. I was wondering if you ever thpught of changing the structure of your blog?
    Itts very wdll written; I llove what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for oonly having one or 2
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  17. People have different hobbies and it comes in different forms.

    They are powered by electric motos and some by use of internal combustion and more so come
    in different sizes. Starting up the world’s most advanced tooy is something not to be taken lightly.

  18. http:// says:

    If people would like to teach them about air travel,
    aerodynamics, or machinery, then this is something tat will actually
    glow their attention. It is no surprise that you get to know grown-up men who still play RC trucks
    lke the way boys would play with their toy cars. $100 cheaper than an entry-level electric hoby
    class vehicle.

  19. rc cars says:

    My loved ones loves the RC car challenges and that i love thinking up new games and course for your kids to truly enjoy.
    Black Ops is a downgrade to previous installments of the series in many ways.
    It has far too wide of a blast radius for a tiny little remote-controlled
    car being able to kill someone acfross an entire room with the triggeeed explosion.

  20. If people would like to tdach them about air travel, aerodynamics, or machinery, then this
    is something that will actually glow theeir attention. However, if building RC cars is your issue, you can purchase the build it
    yourself kit. For those who have enough money, any cost will do as long as
    the car is what they need.

  21. http://www. says:

    If people would like tto teach them about air travel, aerodynamics, or
    machinery, then this iis something that will actually glow their attention. The radio controlled boat
    hobby is a growing one and there are thousands of
    people aall over the world that enjoy taking
    their radio controlled boats out for a spin on a regular basis.

    Starting up the world’s most advanced toy is something not tto
    be taken lightly.

  22. Almost everything on a nitro car can be altered with a few Allen wrenches or screwdrivers.
    Once you’ve decided upon the body style and layout that’s right for you, however, you may find yourself facing one additional choice.
    For those who have enough money, any cost will do as
    long ass the car is what they need.

  23. looked over the articles on the website lots, planning to take the leap very soon and buy a
    steam shower cabin, probably just after the holiday season
