PlayStation 4: The Best Place to Play
PlayStation®4 is the best place to play with dynamic, connected gaming, powerful graphics and speed, intelligent personalization, deeply integrated social capabilities, and innovative second-screen features. Combining unparalleled content, immersive gaming experiences, all of your favourite digital entertainment apps, and PlayStation exclusives, PS4 centres on gamers, enabling them to play when, where and how they want.
Personalized, Curated Content
PS4 will learn your likes and dislikes, allowing you to discover content pre-loaded and ready to go on your console in your favourite game genera or by your favourite creators. Players also can look over game-related information shared by friends, view friends’ gameplay with ease, or obtain information of recommended content, including games, TV shows and movies.
Increase your play time with more immediate play of downloaded titles. When a player purchases a game, PS4 downloads a portion of the game, so play can start immediately, while the rest is downloaded in the background during actual gameplay.
Remote Play on PS4 fully unlocks the PS Vita’s potential, making it the ultimate companion device. With PS Vita, gamers will be able to seamlessly play PS4 titles on the beautiful 5-inch display over local Wi-Fi networks in a local environment.
The “PlayStation®App” will enable iPhone, iPad, and Android™ based smartphones and tablets to become second screens for PS4. Once installed on these devices, players can view in game items, purchase PS4 games and download them directly to the console at home, or remotely watch other gamers playing on their devices.
Gamer Focused, Developer Inspired
PS4 centres on the gamer, ensuring that the very best games and the most immersive experiences are possible on the platform. PS4 enables the greatest game developers in the world to unlock their creativity and push the boundaries of play through a system that is tuned specifically to their needs. PS4 is centred around a powerful custom chip that contains eight x86-64 cores and a state of the art 1.84TFLOPS graphics processor with 8 GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 unified system memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform. The end result is new games with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences.
New DUALSHOCK® Controller
Interact with games in all the ways you’re used to, and some you never expected. As well as more precise dual analogue sticks and built-in motion sensors, DUALSHOCK®4 also includes touch controls and the innovative SHARE button. Take complete control with the DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller.
Shared Game Experiences
Engage in endless personal challenges between you and your community, and share epic triumphs with the press of a button. Simply hit the “SHARE button” on the controller, scan through the last few minutes of gameplay, tag it and return to the game—the video uploads as you play. PS4 also enhances social spectating by enabling you to broadcast your gameplay in real-time.
