|Sony PlayStation 4 Features, Design, Games And Release Date|
Sony is certainly in competition with Microsoft to bring up its next generation gaming console to the market. When the PlayStation 3 was released five years ago, it was sold out in almost every store, and as of June 31, 2011 there were more than 51 million units sold.
The competition gets tougher and intense in the video game market, and Sony is preparing itself for the release of PlayStation 4 or PS4. In fact, while the PlayStation 4 is currently getting its treatment, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 6 are in the early stages of planning and conceptualization at Sony’s R&D labs.
The world eagerly waits for the next generation PlayStation 4 sported with hi-tech gaming features and latest technologies. Gamers are not just expecting the PS4 to have a combination of motion and dual-shock controllers, but also 3D gaming experience. There’s no reason why one should not expect what the next version of PS4 will contain, since technology has advanced widely and effectively.
PS4: PlayStation 4 Features and Specifications
The Sony PlayStation 4 is said to be made of eco-friendly materials. The gaming console is expected to be made up to 60% of recyclable materials. Apart from that, it will also have a “Eco Start” feature, which will allow gamers to save and resume games, without having to switch off the console.
Additionally, it is choreographed to switch off every 30 minutes of no activity. The interesting part is that during this time, the console will self-charge automatically from a rechargeable cell. This not only saves energy, but also maintains and extends the life of the console.
Although the device is blended with eco-friendly features, it certainly needs those specifications which are essentially required for any hardcore gamers. The PlayStation 4 is expected to sport a 1.5 TB hard disk drive, which allows users to store a large number of games. It will have USB 3.0 ports along with an HDMI connect port.
The Sony PlayStation 4 will have full 3D support with 4K2K compatibility, and supports 3D Blu-Ray. It is enabled to synchronize with Sony Ericson, and also synchronize with the Sony Bravia. The Sony Entertainment Network (SEN), formerly called Qriocity, will also be included in the console.
In terms of CPU, the current PS 3 uses a cell based processor with 1 PPE (Power Processing Element) at 3.2 GHz. We are expecting the PS4 to have 32nm 8 Core Cell processor with 16 SPEs, along with a 22nm Kepler. We are also expecting the console to have a boatload of RAM, with at least minimum of 2GB RAM.

Sony PlayStation 4 Design
Although the gaming console is yet to be announced, fans have already posted concept images of the PlayStation 4, which certainly looks incredible. It’s obvious that users mostly look for technical specifications, but there are certain number of people who also rely on looks and design. There are many concepts available, and one such concept by Joseph Dumary, shows the evolution from PS2, to PS3:
Here are some other designs:
It is also expected that the Sony is planning to include the “body movement-based control like Kinect”, a motion sensing input device developed by Microsoft for the Xbox 360.
PlayStation 4 Games
It is confirmed that PlayStation 4 games are currently under development, and Sony is set to launch the games somewhere around the same time as the PlayStation 4 release. The games are also expected to be available in the PlayStation online store, where you will be able to buy and download games instantly.
Sony is also developing high-quality games, new technology, and integration with 3D and dedicated gaming. Mick Hocking, Senior Director at Sony Worldwide Studios revealed a head-mounted display (picture wraparound glasses), which reveals incredibly clear, high-end 3D graphics.
Phil Harrison, former head of Sony Worldwide Studios, shared a few thoughts on the next generation gaming console, and mainly stressed on the concept of “game streaming”. The basic idea about streaming games is to play them online, where users will have to purchase rights to stream games, just like how you stream videos on Netflix.
“The technology to stream high-quality games directly to your living room or computer or TV is not some kind of science-fiction fantasy – it works, and it’ll only get better over time. I think that’s clearly going to be a future for our industry.”
PlayStation 4 Release Date
There are several speculations around the Internet about the release date of the Sony PlayStation 4. Sources indicate that Sony is planning to announce the gaming console sometime in 2012. According to a report by a tech news blog DigiTimes, indicates that Foxconn and Pegatron Technology will assemble the PS4 for Sony starting at the end of this year for a 2012 launch. These were the companies which assembled the PS3.
It’s unknown whether the Sony PlayStation could be given a different name, but at this point we can just assume that it’s going to be PS4 or PlayStation 4, since Sony has named its previous PS consoles in a similar fashion. The PlayStation 4 is expected to be one of the best gaming consoles ever, and certain after looking at the concept designs and specifications, there’s no doubt about that.

MitchelSchraufnagel your idiot that is obviously no idea how to care for a game system. had mine since release not one problem. sounds like you better waite for a childproof one
I would like to see a change in the design of the controller. I would like to see a "stealth bomber" style shape with a thinner design spreading the writsts out confortably and releasing tension in the hands for less cramping and stiffness. I made one out of wood and everyone i showed it too said to patent it LOL.
The best article i real about PS4 is on www.goodtechsystems.ocm they also write its specs and features.
recomended for others from me

Sony has shot down recent rumors of the PS4 being revealed at E3 later this year. Executive Deputy President of Sony, Kazuo Hirai, spoke at CES and repeated Sony’s stance that PlayStation 3 has a 10-year life cycle and they see no reason to rush out the PS4.
“Andy (House) is absolutely right in that we are not making any announcements at E3,” said Hirai. “I’ve always said a 10-year life cycle for PS3, and there is no reason to go away from that.” 10-YEAR LIFE CYCLE NO RESON TO RUSH OUT THE PS4 !!!!!!!
PLZ CHANGE THE CONTROLLER MODEL!!!!!! FOR GODSAKE..IM NOT TELLING U TO DO IT LIKE THE XBOX CONTROLLER<(NO DOUBT THAT THE XBOX 360 CONTROLLER FAR BETTER THAN THE PS3 CONTROLLER) but at least make the analogue stick wider ..THXX plzzzzzzzzzzz
PSFANATIC97 i would wait for the playstation 4 because it will probably be in stores by christmas, but i heard starting price was about $550 and no matter what anyone says, dont buy an xbox 360 its an absolute waste. mine broke within 6 months and im glad it did cuz i didnt want to pay for xbox live and my ps3 just broke it lasted me 5 years
napoleon_06 I m from croatia and when playstation 4 come to mine country,price will be arond 700 $
napoleon_06 PSFANATIC97 I DONT KNOW HOW YOU PEOPLE BREAK YOUR X BOXS PS3 IS A HUNK OF JUNK.HARDLY no memory download to many updates and they lock up, send in for service. i have sony bravia hd tv but would never plaything 3
i bought mines last week but still will buy a ps4 maybe when it gets a little better and cheaper over time wont you agreed.
am i the only one who thinks the ps4 shouldn't have a number? its fine now, but it'll get old easy, so i think they should change it before it does. say, play station legacy? idk, i'm just rambling really
baskasem yes it isby far look at memory alone. on xbox you can listen to your favorite music while gaming. playstation cant even develop that
timruss5232 because the console with the most ram is always the best in each generation. just like the original xbox, panasonic 3do, and sega gamegear.
They should add interchangeable graphics cards and ram slots so we can upgrade our consoles, also they should put something like a Intel Xenon "Nehalem" 6-Core CPU (Or something else from Intel), and enable custom clock speeds on the Processor...
1257186317893120 AndrewM107 In a way, Yes...
A PC with PS3 Firmware... Precisely, but it needs to have multiple PCI slots so we can do SLI...
The ability to have multiple HDD'S would be great too...
Its a gaming CONSOLE- not a Custom built PC in your moms basement. I dont mind PC players but when the get in peoples faces about modding and patronizing people then i get pi**ed. They are consoles BECAUSE none of this interchangeable bulls**t. KEEP PC PLAYERS AWAY FROM CONSOLES OR THEY WILL DESTROY GAMING AS *ALMOST* ALL OF US KNOW IT.
I'm not designing the new PS4, I'm just throwing some ideas out there to think about. No need to get your panties in a wad...
calm down there guy, yes a lot of us pc uses would love to mod the #ps3... some have, it will NEVER happen, so don't go smashing somebodys dream, let them dream.
now run along go back to sleep under your bridge. (troll)
It would be a good idea, but the whole reason anyone has ever turned to consoles is because they don't like upgrading there PC's
Which is why this would be a bad idea, alot of people with PS3's aren't really technically minded, they just like playing games. Some gamers out there don't know the first thing about upgrading RAM or changing a graphics card, take my younger brother for example. He didn't even know that PS3's had graphics cards, or RAM at that matter. Yet he plays COD like a pro.
People like you and I will probably stick to PC gaming while we know a little more about the technical side of gaming.
So to conclude, gaming has always been developed so they can aim the market at all kinds of potential gamers, young people and older people alike.
AndrewM107 From a business standpoint, that's a terrible idea. If someone like you really wants to overclock a PS that bad, you'll do it anyway. Not worth the cost to Sony to make it any easier for that one guy in ten thousand.
Guys.. When ps2 came out it was an hell of an console.. Evvery one wanted to buy it.. When ps3 came out sony just left there shit to ps2. Now what.. Fucking ps4.... I just wanna know.. The game in ps3 is it still there or what? I have call of duty and do i stoll have it when ps4 come out.. PM ME BACK have an great day:)
Fardin humriz I guess when better grafics and performence comes u want to go whit that. I can relate 2 playing "old" games but the quest is 2 be more realistic whit higher performence and so on. So many r leaving the older consols. May i say that as of now i got 2 PS1. 2 PS 2 and 3 PS 3 in the house along whit 2 Nintendo 8 Classic..... the games i play now is MW3 and MW2 but before them it was natuarly other games. I remember when i was happy playing Kid Icarus in Nintendo 8 and thought that was amazing... Now mayby play it out of nostalgic reasons but do i think its good ? nooo. I look 4ward to PS4 and i will be one of the first 2 have 1..... Lets hope u can play PS3 games in the newer PS4. I can play PS1 and 2 games in one of my PS3 but i never do.......... have a nice day.....
JohanSonessonFardin humriz Some games are timeless. Mario Brothers? No, it gets old, like you said, i play it for nostalgia reasons. Call of Duty 2? No, i don't even play it anymore. However, you get the games that were way ahead of its time - maybe not entirely graphics wise, but rather storyline and gameplay wise. I say this as I await my orders on ebay for Final Fantasy VII, IX, Star Ocean 1 and 2 games (PS1 games). I also replay Final Fantasy X, Splinter Cell, Kingdom Hearts, God of War, Star Ocean TTEOT and Tomb Raiders on the PS2 and games with similar super awesome storylines once every 2-3 years. So there is no way I can toss my PS2 console. My fear however is that PS2 consoles do have an expiration (not calendar but they get old and burn have the laser burn out). Also with the release of newer titles i realize how amazing these RPG titles were compared, with newer ones focusing more cool abilities and greater graphics rather than better stat systems and storyline. #justsaying
i had never seen a person so convinced like you just shut up and go play in one of your stupid consoles JohanSonesson
I could care less for what most of the people are saying here; the point for us gamers to consider are the games and their relation with the consoles. I've heard many rumors about Sony creating the PS4 to be more user friendly with gaming companies, which would translate hopefully to a better console supporting said games. This has been problematic for many game developers and a reason why most just recently have begun to tap into the full power of the almighty PS3. I'm willing to pay the price if they can assure me that I'll get my money's worth. Personally, I've never really liked Microsoft, and I want to see Sony flourish, but all the new gizmos and gadgets mean jack if the rest of the companies don't know how to handle it. After all, you wouldn't trust your five year-old with your brand new Lamborghini, right? Well... I wouldn't at least ^ ^.
Fardin humriz no, and we are going to disable your accout.
(this is an opinion, troll, and plain blathered speach. do not take it seriously as it has been made in jest, I do not work for or have any afiliation with sony or any of its coporate members or employees, besides on twitter.)
i was thinking of trading my xbox for a ps3 but i think if whats mentioned above is true i might as well wait for ps4. Does anyone have any advice. much appreciated. thanks
I can't believe anyone really wanted to buy an XBOX. It is one of the shittiest consoles ever made, by hardware standards. People bicker and moan about discrepancies in graphics and such, but when you have a source (game informer) reporting that 54% of their consoles red ring, why the fuck are you even buying such a product? Not even that, I can't even pick up the thing without it shooting the disc around and almost destroying it. I've never had EITHER of these problems with PS2 or PS3.
I would hate to buy a console that not only has the largest fail rate of any console, but one that also seems to destroy my games as well. Plus- PS3 already had wireless built in. What was up with that shit for XBOX?
dieeksamo2k11 Who picks up their console while the disc is spinning? Clearly you've never owned a portable CD player, or paid attention in physics class. And could you try to sound a little less like a biased fanboy? I could pick out a lot of severe problems over the past with the PS3, like PSN being hacked and crashed multiple times, or thousands of PS3 consoles becoming bricked because they couldn't figure out what a leap year is. And Game Informer was the LARGEST estimate at 54 percent, more than double SquareTrade's estimate of 23 percent.
Also, while the PS3 did come built in with wireless, it was only on the 60gb model, which was priced at $600 (!!!), and was the only way you could get an HDMI port, when THE NEXT YEAR, the Xbox 360 20gb (less than half the price) shipped with HDMI. Even the 60GB 360 was $200 less than the PS3.
Really, either side is arguable. Apples and oranges, in my opinion. Each console has it's pros and cons.
You make good points but two things 1) PSN being hacked is not Sony's fault and 2) "why would you pick up a system while the disc is spining" what if it fell of the stand? that happened a couple times with my PS2 PS3 and Wii and i put them back up and continued playing.
I think we should STFU and just play N64 or SNES....
Agreed.. Apple is better :P jk
iPhone is the best portable against the psp and ps vita.. This is completly off topic and has nothing to do with ps3 :D
SpifffyHaatdieeksamo2k11 DUMBass... REALLY you wanna throught that bull crap here. Physics.. really cd player... in what era are you living in?? you still use casettes on your car too or what.. get over it your shitbox is really a shitbox now you little fan boy move along
