I am going for an Xbox 360 (i know its old) but I am really getting a good deal for it hence considering.

I would like to know if I can plug in a USB and play from the USB? Since this one will be the 4GB version. I also have an offer for a slight premium the 500 GB version with Forza Horizon bundled with it. I think the latter makes more sense. Oh and its available for 199$ in Australia which makes it a good deal I think. Now only to find someone coming from australia anytime soon!

Does anyone play F1 2013 game here? I started playing it last week and it is amazing! It perfectly emulates real life scenarios and so much fun. For an F1 fan, it presents a surreal experience.

Can anyone confirm for sure that DualShock 4 can work with PS3 SuperSlim? Playing NBA 2k16 and Arkham Asylum.. the controller is fantastic except for pathetic triggers.. the feel and lock points are vague and quite irritating for what is otherwise a good mechanism. NFS The Run was a royal waste of money, pathetic game with very poor calibration.. the car is literally uncontrollable, no natural feel and all about blind acceleration.. I'm surprised NFS isn't banned already by the gaming folk.

@Karan how is the trigger setup in DualShock 4?

I face no problems with the DS4, though the triggers feel somewhat smaller than the DS3. Cannot comment on compatibility with the PS3.

Just started Uncharted 4. Was wondering if anyone here has played Bloodborne?

The PS4 initial launch model had issues (whose rubber use to wear out quickly) but now it seems improved & i'd read that it uses a different mechanism for the triggers as compared to old

I have the latest model, its the Uncharted 4 bundle;

I had bought a XBOX one in US. Unable to find genuine MS power supply for the requirements in India. The customer care informed me to go ahead and purchase from a third party vendor.
There are 2 options
a) Either buy a step down transformer so that the original power supply can be used
b) Buy a suitable power supply from third party.
Does anyone have an idea on how to proceed ? Sorry if this has been already addressed earlier

I was about to be a keyboard warrior but did some research and see that M$ indeed ships the Xbox with different PSU for different regions! In$ane! Wow, thankfully my PS4 didn't have those issues.

I checked on some forums and it is best you purchase a PSU from UK - looks like guys have used it without issues. A step-down transformer is a pain and good ones are quite costly. But do wait for other opinions from guys here.

How about that.. a console having the logo of a game, I'm new to PS'ing but I'm guessing Unchartered is one of their best sellers.

I bought a PS3 SuperSlim to unwind once in awhile for about half hour but it only gets me more aggravated because I cant seem to nail the game moves perfectly. So I'm just letting it rot there for now.

I've used both for my American Xbox One in India. Both work fine. I'm currently using the step down converter though. Sucks how there isn't a genuine power adapter for the X1 to buy in India, poor support from Microsoft.

Thanks for the information. Where did you purchase the step down converter ?
There are multiple options in Amazon. I am not sure which one would work as expected.

Playing Uncharted 4 now. What a game! Spectacular graphics, great storyline as always. Naughty dog always comes up with some great games!

Awesome! Man, I so feel like grabbing a PS4 right now but the number of titles are way too less at the moment.

Tell us more about UC4 Naveen. Is it as big a leap from UC3 as UC>UC2?
