Sony unveils PS4

Ps4 Unveil

Console to boast suped-up PC specs and social media integration.

Following months of anticipation, Sony has pulled back the curtain on its next-generation console, the PlayStation 4, at its event in New York.

Opening with a compilation video celebrating over two decades of PlayStation gaming, company bigwig Andrew House said the new console was “consumer-centric and developer led”.

Console designer Andrew House claimed that the new console was designed to be “like a PC but supercharged to bring out its full potential.”

It will feature an enhanced PC GPU, x86 CPU, 8GB of high-speed unified memory and local storage HDD.

Additionally, rumours seem true that the new controller, the Dual Shock 4, will have a new share button, enhanced rumble, touchpad, reduced latency, headphone jack, and light bar for identifying players.

The controller has been designed to work in tandem with a stereo camera to track 3D the position of controller via light bar.

That’s not all, the PS4 promises to enable social networking, game streaming, and even allows people to let their friends take control of their game to get past more difficult levels.

Stay tuned for more details as they unfold at the New York event.
