The PlayStation 4 is the next generation video game console from Sony.
The PS4 features compatibility with the x86-64 PC based instruction set making game development easier, cheaper and quicker from previous versions of the console. This is available through a new accelerated Processing unit (APU) developed via AMD which combines both the central processing unit and graphics processing unit. With regards to memory it features 8GB of super fast GDDR5 which is 16 times more than the PS3 offered.
An app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices allows them to become 'second screens' which allows for additional gameplay content to be displayed (similar to the Wii U), remotely watch other games being played and allows users to make game purchases whilst away from the console.
A new controller called the DualShock 4 will be included with the console which features a touch pad, motion detection, incorporated rechargeable battery and light bar which identifies different players and shows important gameplay messages. A new 'share' button is included which allows the user to pick a video clip or screenshot from the last 15 minutes of gameplay to share with friends on social networks like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the official PlayStation network. Using live internet streaming services like Ustream, gamers can broadcast their gameplay live to friends to spectate and discuss.
The Blu-ray drive will play discs at 6x speed with a maximum 27MB per second transfer rate (for comparison the PS3 is 2x at 9MB/s). A 500GB hard drive is included which is upgradeable.
Internet connectivity is via either the wireless network or Ethernet adaptors and additional devices can be attached through Bluetooth, 2x USB 3.0 ports and auxiliary port for connecting the PlayStation Eye which enables motion tracking of users.
The PS4 is not backward compatible with previous games, however there is the possibility Sony will add the 3000+ PS3 games available on a new instant cloud based gaming network.
