PS is back on the thrown :) I knew SONY would fix the problems they had with the PS3 launch. It's good to see how well they have done. I'm hoping my PS4 arrives now in may :) Hoping the WiiU can bounce back and follow the sales of the PS4 and X-BoxOne. We need competition and gamers need good games to play on their machines and I'll be buying a WiiU this year I believe :)
