PlayStation 4 About the PlayStation 4

The PlayStation 4 (プレイステーション4), officially abbreviated as PS4, is an upcoming video game console from Sony Computer Entertainment. Announced as the successor to the PlayStation 3 during a press conference on February 20, 2013, the PS4 is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2013, and will compete with Nintendo's Wii U and Microsoft's Xbox One, as part of the eighth generation of video game consoles.

About the PlayStation 4

Moving away from the Cell architecture, the PlayStation 4 will feature an AMD processor based around the x86-64 instruction set. This is intended to make video game development easier on the next-generation console, attracting a broader range of developers. These changes highlight Sony's effort to improve upon the lessons learned during the development, production and release of the PS3. Other notable hardware features of the PS4 include 8 GB of unified memory in the form of GDDR5, a faster Blu-ray Disc drive, and dedicated custom chips for processing audio, video and background tasks.

By incorporating a 'share' button on the new controller and making it possible to view in-game play streamed live from friends, Sony plans to place more focus on social gameplay. Among new applications and services, Sony plans to debut Gaikai, a cloud-based gaming service that hosts downloadable content and games. The company also plans to release the PlayStation App allowing PS4 owners to turn smartphones and tablets into a second screen to enhance gameplay.
