PLAYSTATION 4 PS4 IS OFFICIALLY OUT

The New SONY PS4 is now Officially Out. I know after a much waited time and anticipation, you would be in a hurry to see or know what the New Sony PS4 looks like before going ahead to pull out your wallet.

The new Play station 4 was first announced at E3 in a press conference on the 20th February, 2013. The New PS4 is in a bid to compete with the likes Nintendos Wii U and Microsofts Xbox One.



FEATURES OF THE NEW PS4

The New Ps4 is really out to beat off rivals with its new features that guarantees a wonderful User based experience in terms of design, game controller, User Interface, dual camera.


DESIGN

PS4 is a rhomboid shaped gadget and has a sleek design and visually appealing. It appears pretty slimmer than the Xbox One and it is does not at all carry that fancy look to me.



CAMERA

The PlayStation Eye (camera ) has been redesigned.and now comes with both 1280×800px cameras. The dual camera allows you to carry out several modes of operation, depending on the target application. The two cameras can be used together for depth-sensing of objects in its field of vision where by one of the cameras can be used for generating the video image, with the other used for motion tracking.


USER INTERFACE

The PlayStation 4 now substitute the XrossMediaBar with a completely new user interface. there is also an improvement in user profile for players that now shows details such as recent activity, their full name and other details in addition to their unlocked Trophies. The PS4 home screen now features personalized content from friends. Other Services from third-party vendors, such as Netflix and Amazon Instant Video, will also be accessible within the new interface. It is also possible to carry out multiple task during game play, such as opening a web browser while playing a game as well.


PS4 Online services

Sony openly said the PS4 does not necessary require an Internet connection so as to function completely, but some of it services and features will sure be richer when the User is online.The PlayStation Network (PSN) will allow players to access a variety of cloud-based services from the PlayStation Store including Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited subscription services. Customers can browse titles and stream games via Gaikai to try them out almost instantaneously. Online multiplayer access requires a subscription to PlayStation Plus. Sony intends to expand and evolve the services it offers over the PlayStation 4s lifespan.

Controllers

The DualShock 4 is said to be the PS4s main controller. Similar to the DualShock 3, it will connect to the console via Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. The DualShock 3, however, will not be compatible with PS4. The DualShock 4 will be equipped with several new features, including a built-in two-point capacitative touch pad on the front of the controller, which can be clicked. The controller will support motion detection via a three-axis gyroscope and three-axis accelerometer and improved vibration. It will include a non-removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery tentatively capable of storing 1000 mAh. The tentative design weighs 210 g (7.4 oz), has dimensions of 162 × 52 × 98 mm (6.4 × 2.0 × 3.9 in), and has a rubber or etched plastic backing to enhance grip.

Cost and Availability Of PS4 in NIGERIA

The PS4 is going to cost $400 (which is about N60,000), and will be available as soon as possible. That puts it at a hundred dollars cheaper than the Xbox One, although its worth remembering that the Xbox One comes bundled with a Kinect 2.

Its an aggressive price, though, one that Sony needed to hit to make itself an attractive Xbox One alternative. If nothing else, the choice is clear: Do you want a living room portal that happens to play (some extremely good) games? Or a less expensive gaming machine (with some extremely good online content) that doesnt have much of an exclusive identity?

For the gaming community, the edge pretty clearly goes to the PS4 right now. Used games arent tainted by DRM restrictions, the console itself is cheaper, the graphics are sublime. The question is: What about everyone else? Well have to wait until the holiday season for any sort of definitive answer.
