Sony has finally revealed the PlayStation 4 for the first time at today’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles. It’s worth noting that Sony already announced the new gaming console earlier this year. However, it did not reveal the actual device, much to the dismay of gaming fans.
At first glance, you’ll easily notice the edgy design and the jet black color. There’s really nothing much to the box, just plain old seriousness to be frank.
Today, Microsoft made amends by flashing the new entertainment system. At first glance, you’ll easily notice the edgy design and the jet black color. There’s really nothing much to the box, just plain old seriousness to be frank. Sony explains that its engineers have pursed to keep the design slim and light in order to enhance its flexibility. We’re not sure what that means, but we’re thinking Sony has built the PS4 in such as a way that it will ward off attention, perhaps to channel the focus more on the gaming experience.
Its surface is divided into four parts, with each of them stacked together to form a boxy modern design. Overall, we think the PlayStation 4′s design is one that cannot be taken lightly. It’s black, easy on the eyes, and, uhm, gorgeous, too. But the experience will not be complete without the hardware.
Sony has finally revealed the specs of the gaming console. Inside is a single-chip processor a.k.a. Jaguar from AMD that runs 8 cores. AMD is also responsible for the GPU, which is basically a next-generation Radeon graphics chip. All that power is backed by an 8GB RAM and over 500GB of storage space. It supports Ethernet, Bluetooth, and HDMI.
The package, which costs $399, includes a Dual-Shock 4 wireless controller. The PlayStation 4 is expected to hit stores this holiday season.
