Playstation 4 Announced!!! All the detials here:
It is coming holiday 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Development of Sony’s PlayStation 4 started five years ago. The publishers wanted system to be powerful, but also wanted to evolve the systems UI as well to allow users to navigate their content more easily.
What are the detailed specs? During Sony’s PS4 reveal event, lead system architect Mark Cerny took the stage to talk about the new consoles hardware. According to Cerny, the PS4 features a supercharged PC architecture with a x86 architecture CPU, an enhanced PC GPU, and 8GB of GDDR5 system memory as well as a local hard drive. This all means that the PS4 can make nearly two teraflops of computations a second.
What does this really mean? It means that games look really good. We saw a demo of Epic’s new Unreal 4 engine, which looks far superior than any game running on today’s systems.
What are some of the cool features this hardware allows? The new PS4 controller features a low power button. If you hit that the system enters a low power mode and pauses the game. Hit the button again and you jump back into the action. Another cool features is that a secondary custom ship allows you to update games in the background, upload gameplay video of your game, or even start playing a downloaded game before its finished downloading.
This all sounds pretty great right now, and we can’t wait to see how some games will take advantage of this new hardware
Sony's Mark Cerny laid out some of the PlayStation 4's powerful sharing and game-downloading capabilities at Sony's New York even this afternoon. Simple video capture and sharing, a download system that lets you play while the system is still pulling down files, and predictive software that aims to show you games you might be interested in make PS4 a clear step forward for Sony.
Using the "share" button on the DualShock 4 controller, players can scroll back through recent gameplay -- captured via the PS4's hard-wired video encoding capabilities -- and select sections to tag and upload to the Internet. Presumably you'll be able to set them as private, public, or friends-only for viewing, but Cerny didn't go into that level of detail in his presentation.
Similarly to Blizzard's existing launchers for World of Warcraft and Diablo III, the PS4 will allow you to fire up games before you're done downloading them. You'll still have to grab a certain amount of your digitally purchased title or demo before playing, but the experience should be much smoother than on PS3.
Sony's goal is to use its prediction software to study your gaming habits and seed your console with downloads it thinks you might like for a truly instant play experience. In addition, the company should be able to use its predictive data to serve players personalized news and content.
As rumored, PS4 owners will also be able to access chat and other services via their smartphones, tablets, and Web browsers as well. Cerny didn't provide any further details, but coming up with more ways to integrate those devices into the next-gen PlayStation experience isn't difficult.
The benefits include instantly playing demos of games without downloading anything, spectating any friends’ game, and remotely taking over control for them.Perry’s description of instantly playing game demos sounds similar to Netflix’s streaming services or OnLive's streaming game service. Gaikai’s network promises to be "the fastest in the world," allowing any PS4 user to virtually look over their friend's shoulder while online. If you’re playing a game and having a tough time with a boss while your friend spectates, they’ll even be able to control your game to help you through. Cerny also suggests developers will allow spectating players to act as a sort of dungeon master, adding things like potions into a game world.
