PS4 the details Featured

The PlayStation 4 has been revealed along with a slew of new game announcements from Sony studios as well as some surprises from folks not normally associated with the console wars.


Well, as expected, the PlayStation 4 has been revealed with plenty of aplomb today in NYC, but no regional release dates or pricing has been announced (this hasn’t stopped EB Games in Australia guessing at a price tag of AU$899).

Similarly only rudimentary details about the power of the new console were revealed: GPU/CPU on the same die with the GPU performing graphical and general processing operations up to 1.84 Teraflops.  

CPU will be an 8 way socket with system memory,8GB of GDDR5 pushing out up to 176 Gbps in bandwidth.

We did get a look at the new controller which sports the typical Sony layout, but now with extra gadgetry of a touch pad, motion sensor (using a light bar similar to the current Move controller) and a new ‘share’ button for the socially minded amongst us.

Sony also showed off new PS4 (and some new PS3) software due around release time.  Here is the company line:  

New York City, New York, February 20, 2013 – Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) today introduced PlayStation®4 (PS4™), its next-generation gaming platform for the home, alongside the videogame industry’s brightest and most creative minds at PlayStation Meeting
2013. With unprecedented power, deep social capabilities, and instant accessibility, PS4 allows game creators to unleash their imaginations and deliver new play experiences to gamers that were never before possible. The live audience at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, along with millions of fans streaming the event around the world, were also provided with a sneak peek of some of the games that will ultimately define the PS4 experience.
