PS4

 

Specs:

X86 CPU for faster, smoother, better gaming. Rivalling some of the Top-Gaming Rigs like "Alienware" and "Razor?" Maybe.

**8GB DDR5 RAM on the GPU, for Optimised Visual-Content. Great for DEVELOPERS!

USTREAM for SHARING VIDEOS&PICS. Rumours say USTREAM is 'laggy', and 'TWITCHTV' would be BETTER.

*(**)2nd CPU for INSTANT-PLAY of Game Demos from the PS STORE-while they download in the BACKGROUND.

(*This may mean that 1 of Sony's NEW TRC-Requirements to Game Developers - forcing them to Allow All Demos from the PS STORE - to be 'Instantly-Playable via Cloud-Gaming; Digital Format&Ready-to-Play'.)

**Local Storage HDD; it'll need to be big enough to allow 'Constantly-added Game&Save-Data', as well as the memory used up by streamed-content.

CONTROLLERS:

LED LIGHT&CAMERA

- that uses 3D geometry/"Mapping" to sense Greater-Angles of Motion Control, allowing Players to Play Move-compatible games 'From the Sofa';i.e. No Standing-Up necessary! (N.B. 2 Players are Using PS-MOVE to CREATE-AND-PLAY in the Upcoming PS4-title by Media_molecule; albeit-Standing-Up).

SHARE button

- allows you to INSTANTLY Upload and Send Pics&Videos. No Time Wasted on:

Editing, Load/Upload/Download Time, and this- if it works,
could GET RID OF necessity to buy Expensive Editing Software and HDPVRs. Great for GAMERS!

Headphone-Jack

- You can now PLUG YOUR GAMING HEADPHONES-INTO-THE-PS4-CONTROLLER! This'll reduce 'messy-wires', and make it easier to CHAT-ONLINE. You can even 'PODCAST-YOUR-STREAMED-GAMES', or 'Give Tips To Friends-Using-Chat, while watching THEIR - GAME!'


CONSOLE:

 

1. CLOUD GAMING,

All the Top 1st Gen., 2nd Gen. and 3rd Generation Console-Game-Developers

have been 'lined-up' by SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT (SCE) to 'Allow Instant-Cloud-Gameplay' - ANYWHERE - ANYTIME! In a 'Deal-with-GAIKAI!'

2. REMOTE-PLAY;

TRANSFER PS4-GAMEPLAY TO CONNECTED DEVICE, in a Family-Shared-TV ENVIRONMENT:
i) To Your PS VITA. Wifi-Enabled. Necessary. Allowing you to Play-without-Disrupting Others' TV VIEWING!

3. INCREASED NETWORK FEATURES:

- LIVESTREAM YOUR GAMES TO FRIENDS with "USTREAM".

- Help Your Friends Get Passed a Difficult Game, by Playing For Them.

- Use Real Profiles, and Challenge Real Friends, Real Users to Play Together. Stay Connected.

The End of GAMERTAGS? :/
 

Limited Privacy/Security?

4. IMPROVED START-UP FUNCTIONS:

NO MORE LOAD SCREENS! SLEEP/ON-OFF MODE,
letting you Power Down the Game&Console, then Come Back and Reload and Continue Instantly -
From Where you Left Off- WITHOUT DELAY!

 

5. PS STORE FEATURES:

- PLAY GAMES-While They're Still DOWNLOADING.
- PREFERENCES, based on Your Previous PURCHASES & GAMEPLAY CONTENT.
- PLAY ANY GAME - FROM ANY CONSOLE - Starting with PS4.
 

Could this mean PS+ features exclusive to Paid-members? ....

Like, if a PS3 Game Data is detected on a PS4, then Re-Purchase isn't necessary. THAT WOUD BE COOL!
 

6. APPS:

NETFLIX, BBC iPlayer, and All Media Apps on PS3, were kinda Shown, and will probably be included. As will Browser functions.

THERE's A LOT I WAS HOPING TO HEAR, but Didn't:
 

- Blu-Ray!
- 3D Gaming Capabilities.

-Network Features? TOO VAGUE! (I'd prefer a separate Wifi-HotSpot; built-in or via a chip, JUST FOR GAMING!)

USTREAM is Great. But I want to Link it to my Yt account -
to COMPLETELY DISSOLVE necessity and problems with VIDEO CAPTURE DEVICES - right now.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?
