I was dubious about this title after they put an embargo on reviews until the release day of the game. That's like a big do not pre order signal to me.

@sargentpsgamer: not just that, i ll just copy paste what i wrote a few post higher cause i m lazy.

"Usb isnt ideal for data transfer to start with, to transfer data on it, it needs to be encoded then decoded using 8b/10b (8 byte transferred out of 10 are data) you end up losing 20 % bw in the process and as a bonus it requires cpu cycles. Unlike sata usb isnt dma (direct memory access) as well meaning that it requires the cpu assistance to transfer from data from the controller to the memory = big impact on random access and higher cpu load, the faster the usb storage is."

@Javier: Because usb put more strain on the cpu (= more chance of slow down in game) and most of the time actually is slower than sata even if the spec of usb 3 says otherwise.

@raugutcon: You could buy one of those 3.5 inch enclosure and install a 3/4 or 6tb hdd in the ps4 if you want.

I have pre ordered the elite pad already so i dont care much about this package, just wish they had put the hybrid hard drive in the original x1 instead.

@coight30: I found this review on youtube search https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYKSAxjB5j4 . So its probably not an embargo.

@brunni: I guess it would depends on your taste. I had much fun with some of those awful games like rocket league.

So the excuse for raising price in other europe countries was that the euro value went down but now they raise price in a country not using euro ?
