Released in December 2013, the Sony PS4 is a must have next generation games console. The PS4 is the most powerful games console ever.
The Sony Playstation 4 is not only unique for gaming but delivers a total entertainment experience, allowing you to watch films with exceptional clarity (thanks to the built-in Blu-ray optical drive), listen to your favorite music (thanks to the Sony's Music Unlimited program), surf the net (built in browser), and chat with friends and much more!
With dynamic processors and an innovative design the Sony PlayStation 4 is bigger, faster and better than any of its predecessors by far. Sony got together some of the greatest designers and minds to create a world beating console that allows users and gamers to play state of the art games, stunning graphics and all using the best cutting edge technology.
Memory & Processor
Sony claims that the performance of the PS4 is 10 times more powerful than its predecessor, the PS3. The PS4 is a serious piece of engineering. It comes with a pre-loaded single-chip processor that combines an eight core x86-64 AMD "Jaguar" CPU with a 1.84 teraflop GPU based on AMD's Radeon tech. That's backed by 8GB of GDDR5 RAM, and a 500GB mechanical hard drive (the 500GB drive is removable so you can change it to a larger driver at a later date, or update to a SSD for mind boggling performance).
For the technical minds out there the PlayStation 4 possesses a huge Processor and 8GB of memory in its system.
That's a heck of lot more than most desktop computers could ever dream of having. It fits in wonderfully with the rest of the PlayStation network and community by making use of the Cloud. All its features allow gamers to play whenever they want and however they wish.
It's not just the software that has so much dynamism but its hardware has an outstanding graphics processor and a powerful customized chip. The first thing you'll notice when playing the Sony PlayStation 4 is the smooth graphics, natural movement of characters, rich graphics and jaw dropping colors.
The PS4 is incredibly svelte, coming in at 2.8kg. The design is sleek, modern and appealing. And as you would expect from Sony, it is likely to be robust, durable and reliable piece of equipment.
Dual Shock 4 Controller
The Dual Shock 4 Controller allows the gamers to interact with its features in a way that feels so realistic. The controller has dual analogue joysticks, motion sensors, touch controls, a Share button and a built in speaker with a headphone jack. There is even a light bar on the controller that flashes LED signals in four different colors, so you can easily identify players and vital game information.
New Features on the Controller, compared to the PS3 are
- Built-in microphone
- Share Button (share screen shots and videos with the gaming community)

But with the PlayStation 4 you will not be limited to playing your games right in front of the television. Why not take the PS Vita and its 5-inch screen down to your local bar, coffee shop, restaurant or library and play via the free Wi-Fi that's on offer there.
In addition the User interface allows for multi-tasking during game play, ie play & surf, or play and browse the PlayStation Store.

With the PS Vita system, gamers will be able to seamlessly play a range of PS4 titles on the beautiful 5-inch display over Wi-Fi access points in a local area network.
There is very little, if any, lag time when you play games and use the features on the PlayStation 4, and this is an important feature for the more serious gamers among you.
Personalized, Curated Content
The PS4 is not just about raw gaming, it's much more than that, it has the knowhow to understand your preferences.
