    I checked out what was on a PS4 disc. There seems to be only 4 files, a PS4UPDATE.PUP fw file that's just over 1GB, a rif file, a param.sfo and a huge pkg file to be installed/cached onto the PS4.

    Total size of Knack is just under 40GB.

    Sony let GameStop and other places break the street date. You can jusy walk in now and get your controller and your games.

    How do you feel about previous playstation controllers?
    Normally I find the Playstation stuff functional enough (which is no mean feat) but they hurt my hands after a few hours which basically renders them useless.

    I can understand where you are coming from. The original duel shocks were kinda painful after playing a few hours of Crash Team Racing. The only other real problem I had with them where the convex analog sticks. After a while I felt like my fingers were sliding off the pads. And the Duelshock 3s had weird R and L 2 buttons.

    But all of that aside, I like the PS controllers more than any other.

    So there's not one single game file on disc ? Just a huge PKG file that contains the game ?

    Also OP or someone that can do it what does the underside look like? If there are hidden partitions/raw LBA reads there may be a line or some other mark that could indicate things.

    The huge PKG file contains all the game files, it's a container like a zip file or Steam's GCF format, but possibly encrypted to prevent anyone from extracting files out of it.

    I was dragged into this thread by the semi-stupid title. Seriously, nothing will happen if you insert a PS4 disc into your computer. It's the same thing that'll happen if you insert a N64 cartridge into your Wii.
    Wow, they're that desperate for money, huh? Hmm :unsure:

    You really need to stop skipping the first post it might just give context to what the thread is actually about. Just maybe.

    i've enjoyed each version of the playstation controller. i can game with the ps2/ps3 controllers for 10+ hours without any issue. ps1 i never had problems with but the d-pad on the original controller is a bit stiff, and i don't like gaming with it for long periods of time, yet i can without issue.

    The same thing happens with the 360 controller for me, but I can play with the PS1/PS2/PS3 controllers for hours.

    Joke post?
    This was done so people won't have to scramble around during launch.

    The name of the game, the size, the files that were in there, a big picture showing three drives on the computer with the storage capacities visible, a big picture showing the files that were in the disc, a big picture with hex values on it, a picture of the PS4 disc in the computer's disc slot... what exactly did I miss? It hadn't occurred to me that PS4 discs could be read by a computer (which I wouldn't know much about anyway since I'm not that modern), but maybe that's the case.
    The title reminded me of a Youtube video where the uploader trolled a bunch of people. I thought it was funny, but other people didn't. And what do you mean people won't have to scramble around during launch? Are they all going to go to this person's house when the PS4 launches and get these files from him? Link to said video
