[edit] Features

  • Power to Perform: The PlayStation®4 system was designed from the ground up to ensure that game creators can unleash their imaginations to develop the very best games and deliver new play experiences never before possible. With ultra-fast customized processors and 8GB of high-performance unified system memory, the PS4™ system is the home to games with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences that shatter expectations.
  • Personalized, Curated Content: The PS4™ system has the ability to learn about your preferences. It will learn your likes and dislikes, allowing you to discover content pre-loaded and ready to go on your console in your favorite game genres or by your favorite creators. Players also can look over game-related information shared by friends, view friends’ gameplay with ease, or obtain information about recommended content, including games, TV shows and movies.
  • Play as You Download: Increase your play time with the ability to play games while they’re downloading titles. When a player purchases a game that is enabled with this feature, the PS4™ system downloads a portion of the game, so play can start, while the rest is downloaded in the background during actual gameplay.
  • Remote Play: Remote Play on the PS4™ system fully unlocks the PlayStation®Vita system’s potential, making it the ultimate companion device. With the PS Vita system, gamers will be able to play a range of PS4™ titles on the beautiful 5-inch display over Wi-Fi access points in a local area network.
  • PlayStation App: The "PlayStation® App" will enable iPhone, iPad, and Android™ based smartphones and tablets to become second screens for the PS4™ system. 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 the gameplay of other gamers playing on their devices.
  • DualShock 4 Complete Control: The DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller features familiar controls while incorporating new ways to interact with games and other players. Improved dual analog sticks and trigger buttons offer an even greater sense of control, while the capacitive touch pad opens up endless potential for new gameplay possibilities.
