Tokyo: Japanese giant Sony plans cement their place in video games world by bring fourth version of its flagship gaming device PlayStation 4 (PS4).
Sony gets the great response at the launch of its flagship gaming device Play Station 3.
Now Japanese company is coming with an upgraded version of its flagship device Play Station 4 in this year.
We already know that PS4 will track both controllers in gamer’s hand as well as face. This technology works just the old multi-player standby of split screen, dividing up television real state when two or more players go at it. The same tech tracking technology will be added to the upcoming console. If a gamer gets up and moves right or left, his section of the screen will automatically be swapped.
According to Sony PS4 will run its own games as well as PlayStation 3.
Here are some features and specs of PlayStation 4
The focus of Sony is now more on building gaming network than just selling devices.
“By combining PlayStation 4, PlayStation Network, and social platforms our vision is to create the first social network with meaning dedicated to games,” said David Perry, the chief of Gaikai purchased last year by Sony, during the launching event.
The world is now dominated by smartphones and tablets where cloud gaming is more popular. Routine gaming practices by big players are not going to be fruitful any more.
Reading this change on time, Sony has shifted its strategy to remain relevant in the market in future.
A button has been made part of the new console which will let users instantly stream their gaming action with real world friends and even they will be able to get help when stuck at some point.
Mind Blowing Gaming Experience:
Keeping in view of Nintendo Wii U experience, Sony has teamed up with leading gaming engines, networks, gamers, animators and artists for the mind blowing gaming experience for the users.
Routine games are no more an appealing factor for the tech lovers. They need something really new and Sony is expected to come up with ‘really’ something new.
The System will run on a single chip custom processor and utilizes eight x86-64 AMD Jaguar CPU cores, with a next-gen AMD Radeon based graphics engine powering the way.
This new system is much more based on PC which is great news for the Sony fans. It allows the coders to code games for the next generation consoles and for PCs.
Sony’s Play Station 4 is expected to have an 8 GB of GDDR5 memory which enables lightning fast performance.
We are also looking at Blu-ray disk support plus DVD, HDMI output support as well as Analog-AV out and an optical digital output in the console.
The development of PS4 Eye, a new camera system that utilizes two high-sensitivity camera with wide angle lens of 85 degree and 1280 x 800 pixel x 2 video pixels, must be a refreshing thing for gaming lovers.
Capability of PS4:
According to Sony, the new PS4 will play the 4K/Ultra HD videos or play 4K games at 4K resolution.
Blu-ray of PS4:
The PS4’s 64-bit x86 architecture and 8GB of GDDR5 memory blow its predecessor out of the water, its Blu-ray drive will be three times faster.
The PS4 will have an instant on/off feature allowing it to shut down during the game and then boot up from scratch in seconds and resume it where you left off.
As we have already seen the sign of coming of PS4 in UEFA Champions League Final at Wembley on advertising boards, but according to rumors, Sony will be launching the PS4 by Christmas this year.
As far as the price of PS4 is concerned, it will be available around with $450/£399. A UK-based sell and purchase site has posted PS4 availability from Dec 31 with a price up to 399 pounds.
As far as the above features are concerned, Sony is coming up with its greatest gaming device ever. However it will also be in a competition against its rival Xbox, which is also preparing to launch Xbox 720.
