At the moment, I am afraid to try it as it is not official update... Might have been modified... Sony has then pulled the update from their website...

If I was a PS4 hacker, then I would definitely be curious to try the update, but I am just a consumer like everyone else... For now, I will just play some Killzone and Knack until the official launch of the PS4 and V1.5 update in less than 2 weeks.
I'm just going to take you at your word.
1. What is the fan noise/heat like?
2. Thoughts on controller weight, form, feel?
3. Is the console's blue light distracting - can it be disabled?
4. How are loading times on games - I assume they require HD installs?

FS Online orders can be glitchy like that sometimes. Killzone discs should be shipped today since FS says it is releasing tomorrow up here.

Anyone know if EB will have Killzone in stock tomorrow?

UI is VERY SMOOTH even on FW v1.00
Responsive just like the old XMB but faster.

Game loading is a bit slow the first time you load a new game... After installing data in the background, game loads up much faster initially and between levels... (Killzone SF installs almost all the game data on the PS4 HDD, but it does it in the background while the game is running. The initial background installation while running Killzone does have some slight slowdowns here and there on, but nothing too bothersome.)

*** I am thinking of trying to install a SSD on my PS4 to speed up the loading times even more... I will wait until v1.50 update is installed...

Dualshock 4 charging while the system is off is working on FW v1.00

Is Remote Play available? Or is that part of the 1.50 update as well?

From what I've read, shop.ca will ship items on 15th. Will I be able to pick up items on Saturday from CP or UPS?

My CoD Ghosts for PS4 arrived in the mail today, just for reference if anybody is interested the PS4 game cases are the same dimensions as the PS3 case, they just removed the useless blu-ray header and made it translucent blue. Wished they made the case thinner like on the PS vita cases since manuals are pretty much a thing of the past.

Not mine, just a reference picture

Are there any online retailers that still have stock?
If not, do you think that Costco will have any available in store on the launch date?

I have seen official 1.5 updates available somewhere. You can put it on a USB key and try to install that way, just like on the PS3.
The firmware that leaked was version 1.00.
