PS4 will be significantly more powerful than the Ps3, with PS4 featured an X86 8-core CPU, enhanced GPU, 8GB DDR5 system memory with ‘Instant On’ capability. Blu-ray and HDMI is a must for PS4. Sony also announced that there’s a new Playstation 4 Eye device with two 1280 x 800 resolution cameras which have the Xbox Kinect style feature.
Gamers won’t be able to play any PS2 and PS3 on the new console. Some of the mentioned games for the PS4 include: Killzone: Shadowfall (Guerrilla Games), Drive Club (Evolution Studios), Infamous 3 (Sucker Punch), Deep Down (Capcom), Watch Dogs (Ubisoft), Diablo III (Blizzard) and Bungie’s Destiny (Activision).
Sony also revealed that the PS4 Dualshock 4 controllers include new features such as a touchscreen in the center, built-in microphone and jack and a share button. “A new application from SCE called “PlayStation App” will enable iPhone, iPad, and Android based smartphones and tablets to become second screens” said Sony.
There are rumours that PS4 is likely to cost $400+, but with all the new features, it’s not that simple. Playstation 4 will be available this Christmas 2013.
