When it comes to gaming, there’s no doubt that Sony’s Playstation is one of the finest there is. Then again, competitors keep on launching their own versions of game consoles, which has led Sony to come up with its latest gadget – the Playstation 4. It’s expected to start the next generation in gaming. Every Playstation that Sony produced always left a mark. And the new Playstation 4 has to do the same. Let’s take a look at what we can expect from new game console and decide if it’s one device we should all wait for.
Feeling the pressure
Sony has been in the forefront of the console industry for almost twenty years. Now it has felt the pressure from competitors as well as the rapid changes in technology. Google and Apple can turn TVs to gaming machines. Sony’s Playstation 4 has to be a great game console with good games.
Sony is quite challenged when it comes to this department. It has to come up with games that have better graphics than PC games. Customers wouldn’t want to spend money on an expensive game console if the games don’t look better.
The PS4 controller
Everyone’s speculating how the controller will look like. It has to be easy to hold and comfortable on your grip, otherwise holding it for hours won’t be fun. A photo leaked out a couple of months ago, and it appeared very similar to the controllers of previous Playstations. However, it has its own twists.
A PS Vita-style touchpad is found at the controller’s center. This means that the controller can give additional analog input. There’s a blue light found at the top, and it may mean that the new PS4 has a pointing functionality. The touchpad seems to have a speaker below it. A headphone jack is also found at the bottom.
There’s a button that doesn’t have a label, but there’s speculation that this is what you need to enjoy social media using the PS4. There’s a Share button that makes it possible for players to post videos and screenshots to different social networks like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
The Playstation 4 is expected to offer cloud gaming. Players can stream their games on the Internet through Sony’s servers. It doesn’t just include saving games in cloud, but a service that stores your game in exact fashion is also expected. Do you think Sony will allow you to finish a game on your coach and pick up where you last were with the use of Vita? Most probably.
We don’t have all the information yet. But what we have right now tells us that this new game console is definitely worth waiting for. When it comes to gaming performance, the PS4 may just overtake all its competitors and let you experience what next generation gaming is all about.
