Sony PS4 Announced – IGN Daily Fix – IGN Video

The Sony PS4 will hit shelves this year – Holiday 2013 – but the look of the device is still firmly under wraps, with no hardware being revealed at its launch event in New York beyond the new DualShock 4 controller and a stereo camera.

Sony PS4 launch – hardware and specs

However, the Sony PS4 isn’t a total mystery – Sony was plenty forthcoming with features and specs for its next-gen gaming console. The Sony PS4 will pack in an X86 processor with eight CPU cores, an “enhanced PC GPU” and 8GB GDDR5 RAM.
What does that mean for gamers? Sony claims an “exponential leap over its predecessors” in terms of processing power, with the Sony PS4 able to suspend and resume gameplay simply by hitting the power button; the console will boot up immediately when you switch it on and restore your game state. The Sony PS4 will also be able to upload and download games in the background – even when the power button’s off – while you’ll be able to play downloaded games as soon as you purchase them, as the game files are downloading.

The Sony PS4 will also feature always on video compression and decompression – letting you seamlessly upload gameplay recordings. The idea, according to Sony, is to make sharing videos of gameplay as ubiquitous as screenshots are now. You’ll also be able to share live streams of ongoing games – more on that later.

Sony PS4 launch – DualShock 4 controller

The one piece of Sony PS4 hardware that Sony was willing to share was the DualShock 4 controller. Closely resembling the layout of the current PS3 controller, the DualShock 4 adds enhanced rumble capabilities, a Share button and touch pad along with a headphone jack and light bar. The latter lets the PS4’s stereo camera track and identify the controller in 3D – the console will also play nice with existing PlayStation Move controllers.
