... saying this is the best game ever produced by Sony. 10's being handed out everywhere by all the reviewers.

Well deserved.

The PS4 train can't be stopped. I doubt Sony would release a PS5 anytime soon considering how well the PS4 is doing. And one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) game still hasn't released yet; Spider-Man. September can't come soon enough.

BTW, according to reports, God of War runs really well on the base PS4, I'm really happy about this. Considering how rock solid the performance is on the OG PS4 with Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War, getting a Pro isn't worth it, yet. I'm probably just going to wait for a PS4 Pro Slim, before upgrading.

I didn't start Uncharted 4 until two weeks ago. Now I'm in a mad dash to finish before Friday lol.

Picked up a PS4 GOW edition this past Friday. Haven't owned a PlayStation since the PS3 and had to have God of War. I must say, I'm impressed. Awesome game so far. Now, my biggest problem is I also picked up Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn, and the Last of Us, lol. I think I'll have enough to keep me busy for quite some time now!

Did I mention I'm also only half way through Dark Souls III on my Xbox?

Will grab it and dust off my PS4, one thing about the exclusives though is lack of replayability and crap MP. Last exclusive I got was UC4 which was amazing but after completing it I have had no reason to play it again. :(

I'm going to echo with most of the gaming review sites are saying. If you own a PS4, you should get this game. Great storytelling, beautiful real-space 3D world, (you walked half a mile up and around a mountain, you can see where you started), it's LOL funny at moments, action can be as involved as you want it to be (mash it up or take the time to learn all intricate combos), it's a superb video game.

I'm about two thirds in now and also really enjoying the game. The graphics on the PS4 Pro are just incredible.

Some of Kratos' interactions with "Boy" are funny.

Yeah, especially funny since I was sitting there watching my son play :D This looks even more beautiful than Horizon Zero Dawn on the PS4 Pro.

I would argue the biggest game coming is The Last of Us 2.
