PS4 release announcement marked the high ground for Sony during the firm’s New York event, but the Japanese company might have dampened the excitement by not shedding light on the price and the design of the console. It is like telling a kid, there is a candy, but you cannot see it or have it till some other date.
The unveiling of PS4 has spread joy through the gaming community as the next PlayStation from Sony has been the much-awaited gaming console. The Japanese conglomerate released the controller, called Bioshock 4, which features a touchpad, headphone socket and a light bar which can be tracked by a camera to detect where the player is.
Sony called the PS4 a ‘game-changing’ device, which is the future of entertainment. The PS4 machine will draw its charge from an x86-based CPU, which is stated to have a similar architecture found in desktop computers making it as the firm said, a ‘supercharged’ PC. The machine will run on an enhanced GPU and it also introduces PlayStation cloud service.
Users’ can now allow their friends to take control of their character to help in advancing through a difficult phase. Talking about the console, PS4′s lead system architect, Mark Cern said, “Nothing will come between the player, the platform, and the joy of the game.”
The new PS4 could be termed as a social-media-oriented console from the Japanese conglomerate as the rumours about the sharing and viewing have turned true. Recent reports state that PS3 games can be played on PS4, contrary to the rumours circulating earlier.
PS4 release date has been confirmed somewhere around 2013 holiday season, but the price is yet to be declared. Sony has unveiled the PS4, which means the cat is out of the bag, it is now Microsoft’s turn.
