I was surprised they didn't push Vita/PS4 integration harder in the presentation.  It's good to see that they are starting 'instant game collection' on PS4 from day one, which I was not expecting so soon.  I already have a PS+ membership (for my Vita) that expires in July 2014, so I get free Drive Club the first month, and then another free PS4 game each month after that.

I don't think the PS+ game is the full Drive Club. They call it the "PS+ Edition," which my cynical imagination interprets as something like Gran Turismo: Prologue. It's tough to have a full free game at launch, but as time passes we'll be getting the real deal. Vita has gotten a lot of great free games through Plus. It's a fantastic service, well worth the cost, and I regret not getting it sooner.

I'm really looking forward to playing all those unique PSN games via Remote Play.

Ah, makes sense.  I missed that about the plus edition.  Not surprising since it's available at launch.   Once they have some games where the MSRP is < $60 and retailers have made most of their new sales, I'm sure we'll get full titles.

Sony was going to pack the camera in but nixed it to keep the price down.

Honestly, I'm glad they did.  I can't have a camera and/or sensor bar for every system.  I literally don't have the space.  And at the same price, I'd have probably gone with the Xbox One (which I'll still get eventually).

I would be happy to never have a camera hooked up to my game consoles - wish it was optional on Xbone too.

Slightly off topic, but here is what is free to PS+ members in July:

Battlefield 3 (PS3)
Metal Slug XX (PSP, Compatible on PS Vita)
Jet Set Radio (PS3)
Dokuro (PS Vita)
Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD (PS3)

This month is actually much weaker than most, but it still illustrates how PS4 users will likely have decent free content each month once the system has been around for a while.  And most of the titles will be remotely playable on Vita (everything except the games that use the Eye).

The more Sony systems you have, the better of a deal Plus becomes.


EDIT:  Also these great sales this month for Plus members only:

Batman: Arkham Asylum (PS3) $5.00
Mortal Kombat (Vita or PS3) $5.00
Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands (PS3) $4.00
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game (PS3) $2.00
Shadow Of The Colossus (PS3) $4.00
Ratchet & Clank Collection (PS3) $7.50

I've got one pre-ordered as well.  One of my tipping points was that my turtlebeach headset should be compatible with the PS4, but not the XBone.  Also, you can recharge the controller with the included USB cable vs having to buy an extra play-n-charge kit.

I'm grabbing Shadow of the Colossus for sure.  Never played it. 

Sooner or later, I'll get to Last of Us but I'm busy catching up on other PS3 games I've been missing out on.  Just started Infamous 2, which I grabbed for free through Plus.

I think the summer sale is available whether you're a Plus member or not, but you save more if you are.

Yeah, stuff that is like 75% off is usually only 50% off if you are not a Plus member, for example.

What launch titles are you interested in?  I am leaning towards Knack and then either Killzone or Battefield 4.  I am hoping to be able to play with the Teh Bias crew again.
