King of game console Sony brand new playstation 4 has unveiled recently at Wednesday’s playstation Meeting event in New York, where Sony Computer Entertainment boss Andrew House called it Sony’s “most powerful platform ever”. This PS4 has unique specs and features including playstation 4 Eye, Backwards compatibility, DualShock 4 and more.
PlayStation 4 Specs
Sony’s next-gen console will also support “multi-simultaneous logins”, which will allow multiple users to sign into accounts on a single console at the same time.
PlayStation 4 Features
PS4 controller: DualShock 4
The PS4 controller comes in the form of the DualShock 4 pad. Very much a classic design, the DualShock 4 nevertheless offers upgraded vibrations, enhanced motion sensors and a Vita-like touchpad on the front.
It features a touch-screen, and on the rear we have a light bar which aids in identifying players.
A headphone jack is also present in the controller, which we’re guessing would be used for that all-so-important voice chat during multiplayer gameplay.
The PS4’s built-in 3D camera detects the player using the aforementioned light bars.
PlayStation 4 – Backwards Compatibility
When the PS3 was first released it allowed you to ditch that PS2, but keep playing classics like Gran Turismo 3 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on your new console. However as the PS3 slimmed down, it lost that feature. Rumours, again from Kotaku, seem to indicate the PS4 won’t even get the initial chance to sample any of its predecessor’s software.
PlayStation 4 – 4K Resolution
The Playstation 3 was one of the devices which brought Blu-Ray to prominence and its successor could again be the pioneer, this time being the first console to offer 4K resolution capabilities. 4K refers to the resolution of 3840 × 2160, a massive step up from the current console which outputs at 1920 × 1080. While 4K TV’s are rare (Probably because of their outstanding price tags) inclusion in the PS4 could definitely bring it into the public eye.
