During their global press conference Wednesday, Sony announces the "future of play", stating that "The demands for a new platform were clear."
We've added a video clip of SCEA CEO Andrew House's unveiling of PlayStation 4.
8 gbs of ram holy fuck!
Killzone, Destiny, Drive Club, Watch Dogs, some other games I can't remember... I cant wait!!!! And they haven't even shown games like Gran Turismo YET! Get in Sony!!!
Is anyone else's minds completely blown by that presentation? My God Sony, you went all out!
@TobeyMaguireFan, Well to answer your question, yes and no. The ps4 itself may not give you backwards compatibility... But according to the livestream that I just watched, GaiKai will be taking care of that. @Reverent, it was a great presentation indeed, however I really thought that we will see at least a prototype of the Playstation 4 Console. So far just a controller...
Yeah, I would have loved to have also gotten to see the console too... But come on, Sony needs stuff to show off at E3 too! ;) Not that they won't already have tons of stuff, but still lol.
@llMurcielagoll Cloud gaming that you have to pay for is not B/C (if you have to repay for your games)
GDDR5 does sound awesome and so was the whole conference, the only thing i disliked was the fact that the streaming service wasn't quite up to the task where i live(Europe).
*using my PSN from any device anywhere is great, it is no longer a small bubble isolated in my room. *8g of GDDR5 is big not only is it fast but is fully available to developers, 720 has only 5g of slower GDDR3 available to run games.
This is how you build a next-gen console!!
I'm not being a fanboy here but the only thing that I liked was the fact you can have a game download even when the console is off which, I know is already implemented for the xbox, just not turned on because even when your not online, if you turn your xbox on it knows there is an update without you doing anything so it's already 'on' The games were ok but not 'oh crap' mind blowing and the additional features are kinda already done between the wii-u and the xbox and the ps3 - I don't know, I was amped up for it and not overwhelmed at all to be honest. I'm sure there are lots more cool features and such coming though. Powerful Box.
This is the beginning of something special. I'm happy the specs. I think this will be the only console I need. The PS3 has poven that Sony can provide all I need and this console looks set to smash my expectations.
and a solid state drive as standard which is what I was hoping for. Can have some seriously quick loading times with that.
Why does the stream keep freezing? its bloody annoying
use this http://www.gametrailers.com...
Speaking of GameTrailers...these guys just can't give that to Sony, huh? Anybody watched the post-show? How often did this guy throw MS and XBox into the conversation. He just couldn't let it go, huh?
all i see is nintendo ideas being copied at this sony event . .
All i see is Nintendo getting owned at this event.
I'm quite disappointed that it's 8 gbs of RAM. I was expecting like double or triple the number.
Someone forgot the 16 rule. Memory goes up 16x with each console. 256 mb*16=8gb.
what's wrong with you? just go away.
Does Moore's Law apply to consoles as well? If it did then we'd only be looking at 4gigs of memory. I say 8 gigs of gddr5 is a lot of memory for just a console and it seems like Sony is trying to make the PS4's lifespan a lot longer than the past playstations. Even if it was only 4gigs of gddr5 on the PS4 I'd still be happy but having 5gigs really blew me away!
Is this like reeeeeeally subtle sarcasm? Rumors were that it'd be only 4Gbs of DDR5 memory and it ended up being double that. Having more than 8 doesn't even make sense :/
Lol good sarcasm there it's a joke guys He's just being sarcastic to the meh Sayers out there It's a damn good presentation if u ask me They could have only show a few tech demo
The best part is its around the same price range as a wiiu...god Nintendo is gonna do horrible this gen..
If it's confirmed that the PS4 will be around the price range of the Wii U then Nintendo's gonna have to make serious price drops since Sony is also targeting Nintendo's market. The best thing Nintendo can do aside from the price drop is bring out more exclusive fun games that really bring out the Wii U's potential.
they aren't giving MS any edge this time around. Sony want's to show the consumer that the PS4 can do everything MS can do and better and "faster"
8GB yesss,this is gonna be awesomeeeeeeee
8 gigs of GDDR5 RAM TO BE EXACT!!!!!
I think the GDDR5 refers to what is used in the GPU specifically. The other ram is likely DDR3.
sorry, that's RAM for BOTH CPU & GPU...
That's a good point, JBSleek.
