PlayStation 4 Discussion Thread




The PlayStation 4 is the successor to Sony's most recent video games console, the PlayStation 3. It was revealed at Sony's PlayStation Meeting 2013 on February 20th. It'll be out Holiday 2013, it'll be powerful (see specifications below), it'll be very social, it'll very personable, it'll be immediate, it'll be integrated, it'll have a new software interface, it'll connect with the Vita, it has amazing graphics, it'll suspend and reload play sessions, games can be uploaded and downloaded in the background while you play, digital games can be downloaded as they are being played, it won't block used games, the games that are coming out look awesome and it'll have a new controller.

The controller (the DualShock 4) looks different (see below), has a motion sensing bar on the top that interacts with a Kinect-style stereo motion sensing camera(see below), has a Share button and an Options button, a headphone jack, a speaker, a new D-Pad, new trigger buttons, concave (indented) analog sticks and has a touch pad incorporated into it.

Pricing of the PS4 has yet to be announced. We also still don't know what it actually looks like. The PS4 was built around developers and is all about games. This strategy and mind set harks back to the PS2 days, and the PS2 is the best selling games console of all time, so the future has the potential to look bright for Sony's next home entertainment system.

Pics of the hardware are out (all over the place).

Looks like ... a game console.

So does the stereo camera see the coloured bars on the controller like the Move ball?

I'm pretty sure that's why they're there.

2000 limit on the PS4 friendslist.  A slight upgrade from 100.
