PlayStation 4 facts - everything you need to know

Postby MRHONGKONGDAVE » 21 Feb 2013, 14:01

Not really bothered what it looks like tbh.

We know that there is actual hardware and not cloud gaming! It will be some sort of coloured plastic or metal that allows you to insert physical media of some sort and attach peripherals and connections somehow.

Probably Matte Black angular design with the odd blue/red/yellow/green light(s).

Also pre-ordered.

Has anybody seen the console itself yet? I'm struggling to find an image on Google that isn't one of those fake concept images that always float about.

i doubt it exists, sony probably have a few designs down and will choose one at last minute, changes could even need to be made if there's any last minute hardware changes too etc.

PS4 is currently on big, old-looking PC desktop lol, like in all those images of the dev kits.

p.s.
genuinely looks like an impressive console, i just hope all can be delivered what has been promised. "149 studios currently making games for ps4" is easily the most exciting thing to hear from this conference. 8)

It definitely sounds promising, but I'm guessing the new Xbox is going to be fairly similar hardware-wise (Kinect vs Move, similar specs etc), so I think the real battle will involve innovations in the games themselves; I will be very interested to see what developers can do with the touchpad and smartphone apps...

Ahem I didn't know the PS3 was that powerful :D

The big thing I saw last night that NOONE seems to have mentioned as really should have was the few shots of the interface and news feeds they showed off!!! AS It seemed to be almost a direct clone of the xbox dash!!! Just take a look for yourselft and you will notice that like 360 and windows 8 its very "metro" looking for the social aspect then when video sharing UI was very very basic and although good as its simple it was a little to basic!

Thanks for that. I'll probably go with shopto, they'll probably have the best price. Plus imagine the amount of points you'd earn! Probably enough for another game or least an accessory

I've read someplaces round here that Shopto have a disclaimer that preordering a PS4 doesn't include any points. I'll check and confirm that for you.

Edit Nope, can't see any mention of a points restriction.
