Take your PlayStation out of the box and plug it in as soon as you unwrap it. Unlike in the days of the Mega Drive, when you start using one of today's Big Black Boxes of Power, you won't be playing anything until your turkey is already digesting.
The first thing you’ll want to set up is your PSN Account. If you’ve got or had a PS3 or VITA before this is rather simple as you can carry over your PSN Name and keep earning those Trophies, otherwise have your email address at the ready to make a new PSN account.
If you own a games machine in 2015, you’re presumably planning to play online. To do that with PS4, you need a Plus account. Worth setting up straight away, this will net you bunch of free games each month across the PlayStation family.
Just follow the simple steps and you’ll becoming a legend in no time on Destiny.
If it’s not gaming you want to do then the PS4 runs apps like Youtube, Netflix, Twitch and the WWE Network. Which you just to have the associated account to use the relevant ones.
If you download the PlayStation App to your smart device, you can check your notifications, buy things of PSN, watch your friends playing and more.
