Preston, South Africa. 20 April 2015

Great console. Much quieter and smaller than my Xbox one.
Most games are ports so improvement from PS3 and Xbox 360 not that great yet. Give it a few months for proper next gen games dedicated to these new consoles. Oh and be ready for 20gig game downloads like destiny:)

Izak van Zyl, South Africa. 17 June 2014

Could not be happier with the purchase.

Faeez, South Africa. 10 February 2014

Worth every cent....

John, South Africa. 15 September 2014

I can't fault this new marvel from Sony, except for the lack of amazing looking games, but that will soon be resolved after seeing the Uncharted 4 Trailer. I'm still more interested in a new Next-Gen style of games, rather than the same old games, with better graphics, but 1080p at 60fps with FSAA (so no jaggies) will ease the feelings for now ;-)

Daryl, South Africa. 29 August 2013

The best next-gen console has almost arrived!

James, South Africa. 25 October 2013

Wow people really have too much money to spend, I wait a about a year maybe less then it will be half the price and the sonys updates by then will let me play ps3 games on it to.

This is for the players, South Africa. 10 November 2014

Love my PS4, since day 1

JAN, South Africa. 19 December 2013

Delivery delay,not so great.

Terence, South Africa. 9 July 2014

With out a doubt, the best implementation of 'what a gaming console should be'. The interface is clear and responsive. The controller is an improvement (I had minor issue with the already great PS3 controller). The touch pad provides a lot of functional value to interface navigation and game play. Sharing is quick and easy. And, if you're not interested in bragging on FB or Twitter (other options available), the feature is not 'in your face' to do so.
The launch titles look fantastic, and development on this platform will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible with the hardware. This means games that continue to improve and impress (with some great independent game development already available on PSN).

Spyros, South Africa. 29 September 2013

Cant wait!!!

vinesh, South Africa. 7 February 2014

this is not next gen
True next gen is Occulus rift ,not better graphics Steambox is the way to go
this is just a PC in a box

Leah, South Africa. 27 August 2013

Sony, my wallet is yours. TAKE IT!!!

Johannes, South Africa. 13 February 2014

Very happy with my console.

Etienne, South Africa. 20 May 2014

This is a really powerful console. I used to be a PC gamer only and even I can say that games look on par with modern day PC games, although all games I've played so far seems to run at 30fps. What I also like is the fact that I can plug my Siberia V2's into the controller and listen to all audio through it (games + blu rays). Highly recommended.

Ashley, South Africa. 28 October 2013

@james, i will give you credit if you can wait that long, ive also told myself im gonna wait a couple of months, But im a massive Fifa player, and Fifa 14 looks absolutely incredible in the next gen consoles. so gona take sum massive will power to resist spending 6500 +. but each to their own.

John, South Africa. 24 September 2013

Best Gaming Console Ever

Marike, South Africa. 13 June 2014

Absolutely fantastic, as expected. (^_^)
A must have for anyone who loves the gaming choices available on PlayStation.

Michael, South Africa. 1 August 2014

love it. What more can I say? Console of note. Thank you Take alot for the speedy delivery :-)

Kevin, South Africa. 11 September 2013

I've been a Playstation fan since the orignial grey square box. So I cant wait for this....One thing I would like to know, maybe someone here can tell me. I've never ordered a console online. So how does it work regarding the warranty and so forth?

Sebastian, South Africa. 15 April 2014

Really good graphics! Fast, responsive and clean interface. Sony just could've designed the console a bit better considering what their other devices look like.

Clement, South Africa. 4 September 2013

Way more than what I expected! compared to $399.00

Zahir, South Africa. 21 August 2013


Jaco, South Africa. 26 August 2013

Kobus, South Africa. 20 May 2014

What a great machine! Best Next Gen console on the market.

Petrus, South Africa. 1 January 2014

best console ever, just wish for more games

Erasmus, South Africa. 29 August 2013

Is the camera not included?

Shark, South Africa. 11 October 2014

This is an amazing console, great reaction time and smooth performance(i have not tried the camera). the home screen is easy to navigate and just look's great. there is a reason it has almost double the amount of sales than the Xbox One. in my opinion the only gaming platform better than the PS4 is a nicely built PC.

Dean, South Africa. 27 September 2013

I just ordered and paid for this beautiful machine! Now to wait 70 days till it's arrival... love you takealot and love you playstation 4!!! :)

Dieter, South Africa. 13 June 2014

Excellent design and quality! The console is as quiet as a mouse and the software runs fast and smooth.

All of my favourite gaming franchises are continuing on PS4 too so I am already spoilt for choice on which games to get next. There are also several interesting smaller games available for download!

Etienne, South Africa. 20 November 2014

Superfast delivery, was only expecting it a week later than when I actually got it.

Julian, South Africa. 18 September 2014

Very nice console. Good graphics.

Jason, South Africa. 13 February 2015

It fits perfectly in my TV cabinet! Graphics are awesome too.

Rhet, South Africa. 20 August 2013

The PS4 has changed my life. I was constantly bullied by a person called xbox. they were very mean. PS4 beat them up. now we are best of friends. Thank you sony for bringing me happiness again. Note : LED screens break when you throw things at them.

Christopher, South Africa. 16 August 2013

Best Game Console ever! cant wait!!!

Roelf, South Africa. 21 August 2014

Awesome system.

Robert, South Africa. 19 August 2014

Coenie, South Africa. 26 July 2014

Not too bad. An Impressive machine.

Games are way too expensive though.

Taboka, South Africa. 15 April 2015

Really great and sleek looking too!!!

Mohd Azher, South Africa. 27 June 2014

Delivery was on time!!! and the graphics are amazing, Games a fantastic!! the design of the Ps4 looks awesome!!, must have for any console gamer!!

Tanya, South Africa. 26 November 2013

@ Gino - Xbox One you need internet access, but with the PS4 you do not need it.... there will still be games available that you can play without internet! Microsoft staunchly said the Xbox One would require an Internet connection until it backpedaled, but Sony has been fairly consistent in saying that you won't have to be online to play games.
@James - Have you seen the prices on the PS3 again... the price did not drop by much and they still did not drop much with the new PS4, do you really think the price will go down?

I can't wait for it!

ZamaSlick, South Africa. 5 November 2013

the best toy ever!

Wesley, South Africa. 5 September 2013

Although its going to be kick-ass, remember kids: its the games and services that make one console better than the other, not the hardware.

Great, South Africa. 10 November 2014

Have played for a few months and still awesome.

Gino, South Africa. 13 October 2013

okay this is just to help you people out since i take it most of you don't know. The ps4 and Xbox one are both going to be dependent on internet you WILL need internet access for games so those who don't have internet you wont be able to use it. Those of you that have bandwidth limits (cap) if you have a small bandwidth limit you probably wont be able to do much for long .Also in South Africa we have inferior internet comparing to the rest of the world for example we have much slower internet .

Tumelo, South Africa. 1 November 2013

I'll give it 10 stars the day preorders begin. highly anticipating this beast of a console.

Randall, South Africa. 23 April 2014

Perfect gaming console if you have a PlayStation Plus account

Ruaan, South Africa. 10 February 2014

Absolutely amazing console! 1080p at 60fps, you can't beat this!

Lindsay, South Africa. 5 June 2014
