Sony’s PlayStation 4 Revealed

Posted 2/21/2013 6:00 am by

playstation-4

The rumors were true.  The scuttlebutt was that on February 20, Sony would announce the PlayStation 4.  What happened?  Well, yesterday, Sony announced the PlayStation 4.  Sony’s latest video game system was revealed to the public at a big press event yesterday courtesy of Sony CEO Andrew House, though the system itself won’t be available for fans to get their hands on until the 2013 holiday season.

It looks as though Sony is doing its best to break down the barrier between console gaming and PC gaming with the most PC-like gaming system yet released.  It’s going to be based on the x86 processor (the same as every computer), and it will have 8 GB of GDDR5 memory and an onboard hard drive.  Most importantly, it will also feature a lot of online capabilities, from downloading games to pausing and sharing games online.  You can also play full streaming video games, pause and resume games hours or days later, push video game content to the PS Vita online, and easily share videos of your gaming skills online via the PlayStation Network.

Even more impressively, Sony has gotten one of the traditional anti-console hold-outs to cave.  Blizzard, makers of World of Warcraft and many other awesome games, are entering into a special agreement with Sony to bring Diablo III to the PS4.
