The PlayStation®4 – 10 times more powerful than the PS3™ - is the world’s most powerful games console. Within its sleek and compact shell lies a 500GB hard drive, full HD (1080p) capability, superior speed and graphics, and an internal power supply to save you space. The PS4™ also delivers amazing online experiences, and the best choice of blockbuster and indie games in the market.
With 5 star reviews across the board, from the likes of Stuff magazine, a People’s Choice Award from IGN readers and T3’s Gadget of the Year Award, the PS4™ truly is the best place to play.
Dualshock 4The DUALSHOCK® 4 is the next-gen controller that puts the power into your hands. Voted the best controller by IGN readers, the DUALSHOCK 4 has been designed with developers to ensure accuracy and precision across all games from First Person Shooters, Driving and Sports. The SHARE button allows you to capture and share your finest gaming moments with the world at the tap of a button, and with a sensitive six-axis sensor, and a touchpad that gives you new ways to interact, it gives you complete control. And if you love being seen and heard, the PlayStation® Camera with crystal clear video and microphones for facial and voice recognition, and Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0, keep you in constant command.
Shared Game Experiences
Social interaction is central to PS4 experiences, so new features were built into the actual foundation of the system’s hardware architecture. PS4 provides dedicated, “always on” video compression and decompression systems that enables seamless uploading of gameplay. For the first time ever, gamers can share their epic triumphs with the press of a button. Gamers simply hit the “SHARE button” on the controller, scan through the last 15 minutes of gameplay, tag it and return to the game—the video uploads as the gamer plays. Gamers can share their images and videos to their friends on social networking services such as Facebook.
PS4 also enhances social spectating by enabling gamers to broadcast their gameplay in real-time to friends using live internet streaming services such as Ustream. During live broadcasts, friends can make comments on the streamed gameplay and, if a gamer gets stuck on a challenging level, friends can also join the game in completely new ways. For example, friends can offer health potions or special weapons when a player needs them most during actual gameplay.
Furthermore, users can connect their Facebook account with Sony Entertainment Network account. Through PS4, users are able to deepen their connections through co-op play or “cross-game chat”.
Putting the gamer at the heart of the console with the greatest games, PS4 is the only place to play Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Grand Theft Auto 5, FIFA 15 and DRIVECLUB. The PS4 has over 40 console games with exclusive content and over 100 more in development, ensuring that PS4 players play first, play better, play more. And you’ll get gaming quicker with PS4, out of the box you can start playing a game on FIFA 14 in under 40 seconds, up to 15 minutes quicker than the nearest competitive console.
The PlayStation® Network (PSN) boasts the largest community of online gamers, supporting up to 2,000 PSN online friends. The PS4 supports up to 8 users for cross-game party chat and with Share Play*, you have the ability to virtually pass the controller from you to your friend over the internet even if they do not own the game.
PlayStation® Plus takes your PS4 experience to a whole new level. The membership service gives you access to a diverse range of immersive online gaming experiences allowing you to play and chat with friends. Members also have access to an instant game collection and two games a month which you can download direct to your console and a range of exclusive discounts in the PlayStation® Store.
Remember to purchase PlayStation Plus in order to enjoy the world of multiplayer on PS4.
Take your Games with you
Stay connected with the PlayStation®App. The PlayStation®App will turn iPhone, iPad and Android™ based smartphones and tablets into second screens for your PS4™. Once installed on these devices, you can purchase PS4™ games and handily download them directly to the console at home or remotely watch other gamers playing on their devices. You can also chat with your PlayStation®Network friends, watch their latest gameplay videos and give them game tips using the PlayStation®App.
With Remote Play you can pick up on the PlayStation® VITA where you left off on the PS4 to ensure you never stop playing. If you want to continue on another full screen, PlayStation® TV** allows you to stream your PS4 games to any TV in your home. If you aren’t at home, the PlayStation® App allows you to connect and interact with your PS4 via your smartphone, as well as keep up to date with what your friends are playing on their console.
Personalised, Curated Content
On the newly designed PS4 menu screen, players can look over game-related information shared by friends, view friends’ gameplay with ease, or obtain information of recommended content, including games, TV shows and movies. The long-term goal of PS4 is to reduce download times of digital titles to zero: if the system knows enough about a player to predict the next game they will purchase, then that game can be loaded and ready to go before they even click the “buy” button. PS4 will further enrich users’ entertainment experiences, by meeting their potential needs.
It’s not just all about next-gen gaming, with DVD and Blu-ray film support, as well as featuring the top digital apps such as SKY GO Extra*, Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, BBC iPlayer and YouTube*, the PS4 is also the home for unmissable entertainment.
This is PS4. The best place to play the biggest, best, blockbuster games with your friends. This is for the players.
Gaming in the Cloud
Launched in November 2006, PlayStation Network, a network service for PlayStation users, now operates in 67 countries and regions around the world with the total number of downloaded content of more than 2.8 billion. In addition to a variety of games available in PlayStation®Store, PS4 users will be able to enjoy a variety of services offered by PSN, such as Sony Corporation’s Music Unlimited, a cloud-based music subscription service and Video Unlimited, a premium video service, as well as various content distribution services.
By combining PlayStation Network with Gaikai Inc’s cloud technology, it is SCE’s goal to make free exploration possible for various games. In the future, when a gamer sees a title of interest in PlayStation Store, they can immediately start playing a portion of the actual game — not a stripped down version of the game. With Gaikai and PlayStation Store, gamers will be able to experience appealing games and only pay for the games they actually love. PlayStation Network and the cloud will offer additional value to PlayStation gamers. SCE is exploring unique opportunities enabled by cloud technology with the long-term vision of making PlayStation libraries including an incredible catalog of more than 3000 PS3 titles that is unmatched in the industry, mostly ubiquitous on PS4.
SCE will announce new details of PS4 and its robust lineup of games from 3rd party developers and publishers, the independent gaming community and SCE Worldwide Studios, as well as further enhancements to the entire PlayStation ecosystem between now and the holiday 2013 launch.
