Appreciate any first hand experiences before i plug it in
Yes PS4 works anywhere without any sort of converter. It has a power supply that is auto ranging with an active pfc.

little confused here because most electronics these days are made to work on both power ratings. Kindly advise.

2. I am also buying a couple of games such as Forza 6, GTA 5 etc. Will these work if I have a India Microsoft account

3. Will i be able to play all games purchased from the US seamlessly ? And also will i be able to download the digital copies of the games available from amazon sitting in india ?


4. What are the other things should I note before I get started.



Appreciate all responses.
I've got the same one too.

No, it will work just fine with out power outlets, no need for a voltage converter.

Some games might be region locked only if you buy them from the respective country's Live Store say US

You can buy any games you want from the Store be it physical or online copy and play them as they are not region locked.

One thing that we don't get is Cortana, XBOX Assistant.

Off Topic- Picked up PS4 Pro and XBOX One S for an amazing deal during the Black Friday sale along with a lot of games,blu rays and the new gen 4K Blu Ray movies.

A peculiar thing - bought my PS4 from the US. But have bought games from there and here in India - all of them play without any issues.

Just got myself the PS4 . Loving it so far( actually struggling to adapt to the controller ). I have been(and always will be) a PC gamer and a part of the PCMasterRace. So if anyone plays F1 2016( PC/ PS4) and would like to play online? I also play Dirt Rally, Assetto Corsa and Project Cars on PC. Would love to play online with fellow BHPians.

I use the following websites to pick up pre-owned games for my PS4.
alvoff / gamexs / gameloot / webuy.

Are there any other reliable websites to buy games from?

I do see Amazon Prime videos App available for Xbox live in other countries, but not in India. Just a sloppy release of their Prime videos without seeing they have enabled apps in country they are releasing. Netflix did better, they enabled their app in Xbox live in India before marketing their release. Complained to Amazon customer care, they said their technical team is looking into it.

For PS3 there is a workaround for Amazon Prime Video App. I found it on the web, Create a user for a different country eg USA. and then download the app. Now using Prime on my TV without any issue via the PS3. Not sure if the same can work for XBOX.

Here're my impressions when I had played it 4 years back:

Quote:
Started the title and it is absolutely fantastic! I just loved the whole concept - something which seems to be very unique. And the background score is mesmerizing! Damn thing feels like a pilgrimage to nowhere. Played for some 2 hours and called it quits. Shall resume it today and possibly complete it.

Fortunately the Collector's Edition lets the player download the artwork and soundtracks of the titles to the PS3's hard drive which can then be copied to a pen drive from the XMB.

Anyways, completed Journey yesterday. It's a very short game - took me 40 mins. or so to complete the remaining parts so may be 3 hours tops. Brilliant game it is. The two things that stood out were the visuals and the soundtracks. There isn't much to write about gameplay here. I would love to give it another shot sometime later after connecting the console online. Felt completely different - a perfect game to unwind oneself after a day's tiring work. Good job thatgamecompany!

Began Flower immediately after that and I can confirm that soundtracks and artwork for the remaining titles can be saved to the console.

Hehe, I knew you would have finished the game already! Yup, wonderful, simple game. But keeps you hooked - I finished it in one sitting. I had played it connected online the first time - so I assumed that the other character that joined me in the journey was actually an NPC - till later I found that it is actually a player who has joined me online! Interesting addition to the game. But am playing it now not connected to the internet - will finish it without any help.

Also, did you play Inside? By Playdead studios - same guys who made Limbo.

Hey guys, quick questions-

a. I possess an Amazon Prime account, and is there any way to get it on the PS4 Slim? Called up their customer service who said it was an UK instance which is provided for Indian subscribers, and promised to get back to me on this with no avail thus far.
In the interim, I received a request from Netflix granting me another month's free trial and I was impressed that they've an app on PS4 with a decent variety of movies albeit pricier than the Amazon folks. Please advise if you know a workaround.

b. My PS4 Slim doesn't seem to detect my Home Wifi and sometimes iPhone (when I try to tether it)- strangely, it detects the Wifi Airtel Dongle I have and my spouse's Samsung S7 edge. Please take note the issue is intermittent.

I want to reignite my passion for gaming. I used to play a heck lot of games during school time but eventually lost interest with passage of time.

I mostly used to play sports games like FIFA, F1, Moto GP, TOCA, and related similar type of games on PC.

Now considering my area of interest in gaming limited to sports/racing, please suggest me the product that I should go for?

A good gaming PC, A Sony Play station or XBOX.

Since I am new to Play stations, I don't have much knowledge about them.

Please suggest.
