    Already had PS+ because of my Vita.

    PS4 - Christmas Gift last year
    Second Controller - $80?
    PS Plus Membership - $79
    Marvel Lego - $68
    Infamous Second Son - $69
    Shadow of Mordor - $68

    So $1009 total, or around $638 with trades.

    While I only just got mine recently and I've spent far less than a few of you here I am a bit worried how much I have spent. So here goes:
    $400 console
    $69 Destiny retail
    $28 Trial Fusion retail
    $49 Skylanders Swap Force starter set (part of 4 yr old daughters Xmas present) retail
    $15 Hohokum (digital)
    $15 Outlast (digital)
    $69 Red controller
    $24 basic chat headset (slightly better than included one)
    $0 for PS+ games and cross buys from PS3 like Flower, Flow etc.
    $70 for PS+ of course last years ran out just after I bought the PS4
    And just today I bought Alien Isolation for $68 retail.


    Not too bad I guess. More than I'd like to be spending when I should be putting more into the house but I'll probably always say that!

      Where did you find Shadow of Mordor for $50? A friend of mine is looking for a good deal on that one.

        Dick Smith had sales last week. Went down from $59 to $47 on the online store. They did it for alot of the pre orders. AC, Cod, Evil Within and so on. Had to buy online though.

          Nice find. Sale's over now I assume, I'll keep an eye out for other cheap sources.

            Yeah. I'm pretty sure it was one of their hourly sales but I'm not certain. Got it in the mail this morning so 1 day after release is pretty good.

    Hmm Let do this:
    * Sony X PS4 Bundle: $650
    - Includes x2 controllers/Camera/Sony X Personal Engraved box/1 Year of Playstation Plus.
    *Playstation Plus 1 year (i now have the next 2 years paid for as I recieved the SonyX one after recieving the console) $70
    * Killzone: $60
    * Plants VS Zombies: $40
    * Assassins Creed 4: $60
    * Diablo 3: $60
    * Destiny: $50
    * Dynasty Warriors 8: $45
    * Quiz Show (fun to play with the GF): $7
    * Additional White Controller: $60
    * Turtlebeach Headset: $15
    * Custom Laser Engraved vynal for Controllers: $3
    EDIT: Oh yeah I bought Ghosts on PS3 then upgraded it for an additional $10.

    Total So Far: $1,130

    damn thats alot

    TO be honest the most i have spent on the whole ps4 so far is
    $150 for the console
    $20 for killzone
    $25 for MGS GZ(should have been cheaper..)
    $20 for Last of Us remastered
    had PS+ for 2years worth so i didnt need to buy it
    The damage cost till now is $215
    not bad and because of PS+ i get free games to play.
    Also importing !!! is a must if you want cheap stuff.
    EDIT: I had alot of old PS3 games and since i used to the advantage of the birthday trade bonus and the my Eb member lvl 3 15% trade on top of that too. so it came up to a total of 700 added up. which helped me buy both ps4 and the xbone. not to mention vouchers were there too :) and the great staff at EB who discounted me some games just for the sake of getting both consoles

    hmm..let's see.

    - White PS4 Destiny Bundle $519
    - PS+ 1 year $69
    - Game: Destiny Vanguard Edition $0
    - Game: Assassin's Creed Black Flag $0
    - Game: Killzone: $20 (Dick Smith clearance)

    silicon thumb pads for controller : $3
    D3 ros : $48 (after trade in)
    driveclub: free (gift)

    I would have to say the value I've got out of the machine so far has been through the roof

    Havent picked up a PS4 yet,so $0, But these comments are giving me a budget of what I should expect.

    I hope you arent continuing these article next week. I would hate to think how much I spent on PS3 stuff over the years. Im guessing at least a Hyundai's worth

    PS4: $500
    Metal Gear Solid 5 - Ground Zeroes : $50
    Infamous Last Light: $25
    Playstation Plus 1 Year: $70
    Watch_Dogs: $70
    Velocity 2x: Free with PS Plus

    Total: $715

    However, this doesn't take into consideration the following purchases for next year...

    LittleBigPlanet 3: $50 already on deposit
    Bloodborne: $25 on deposit
    3 extra Dualshock 4s: $320 - already considered in next year's gaming budget...

    PS4: $500
    Controller: $74
    Killzone: $80
    Metal Gear: Gift

    So, I've borrowed a few games of mate, Infamous, Battlefield and Watch dog but I'm in love with my xbone. Sorry Sony. Just hurry up and give me Uncharted.
