Sony's PS4 dev kit passed by the FCC roughly a week ago, and now its consumer-oriented counterpart has passed through Uncle Sam's offices.
Wouldn't be surprised for a late October - early November release date for this baby. I can't honestly wait.
Lol me ether man
I'm right on board with you guys. I preordered PS4/Killzone combo with extra DualShock 4 the day of E3.
I third that notion.
I haven't preordered one yet, as I'll be moving for work fairly shortly and don't know which city I'll end up in. I hope I'll be able to pick one up within a few weeks of launch.
I've traveled to the future, and this does happen.
late october works for me
Maximum clock frequency is that of the RAM I believe 2 * 2.75 = 5.5Ghz. No mention of the wireless frequency, was curious whether it supports 5.5GHz as well or only 2.4GHz.
It's the clock frequency ( Frequency....... Just remembered the game on PS2 :) ) of the GDDR5, not for the wireless.
I thought it was 5.0GHz, not 5.5GHz, that's used in WiFi hardware.
This is correct yes, it's 5GHz. And it seems it only supports 2.4GHz (just like the dev-kit). Problem with that is the potential interference from other devices as it's more commonly used by phones and the lot, so might have disconnects issues because of it. Other than that the system is pretty much awaiting software, everything else seems good to go.
If there are any disconnect issues, they'll already be present on current 2.4GHz wireless devices being used in homes using 2.4GHz WiFi. The PS4 won't be the only device to encounter interference.
*Excellent*Can't wait till i'm opening my new sexy PS4 and that smell of freshly new opened things.
Can't beat that smell.
Opening things is probably the funnest ever.
hell no playing them is the funnest ever!
That is very good news, that means its been pretty smooth sailing with not many hiccups along the way. Ish is gonna get real, real quick
would love it if it came out bonfire night
I can see it shipping in October at this rate.
But most important is the work temperature. From 5 to 35 degrees. Is this mean that the PS4 will have very small percentage of failures or nothing?
The 5-35 degree operating temperature refers to the temperature that the PS4 best operates in. It does not mean that the PS4 will only get 5-35 degrees hot itself. Nobody can answer whether they'll be low failure rates until it is available. Remember, if the cooling isn't good enough, any electronics can fail.
You are mostly right, but consider that the PS4 is using processors similar to the ones used in devices with no cooling fan/space and a huge ridiculous battery sitting right next to them. Oh and an October release date would be awesome!
Very good news!
How does the FCC thing work? Does the PS4 go into production right after or how's that work?
Usually soon after. This is basically just clearance for a company to make that model in the USA.
Something like that. If there were issues, Sony'd have to go back and make revisions to the system before they could start selling it- in the US, anyway. Then production- for the US- could ramp up fully. The earlier this is certified, the faster they can get to putting the console on the market; obviously, the earlier they get started, the MORE consoles they can produce, to boot.
^^^ Thanks guys. Well I hope they get the production rolling! I would love a late October release or early November.
Please be October release :D
It´s coming , yessss
I'm calling it right now October release a week before Call of Duty: Ghost releases.
An October release just after Beyond Two Souls comes out would be great.
Never this hyped for any console, maybe the PS2 :)
