Sony announced its latest hardware in the console wars, the Playstation 4, a new gaming device that is an upgrade to the Playstation 3 console released seven years ago. The event unfolded live at the Hammerstein Ballroom this evening in NYC before a crowd of 1200 journalists who still don’t know what the PS4 looks like.

“Today marks a moment of truth and a bold step forward for Sony as a company,” Andrew House, president and Group CEO of Sony said. “The living room is no longer the center of the PlayStation ecosystem; the player is.It’s conceived as the most personal gaming experience available today. This is the foundation of our next generation platform, PlayStation 4.” “The architecture we chose is like a PC in many ways, but supercharged [for gaming],” said Crash Bandicoot creator Mark Cerny who went on to discuss how the PS4 was needed to advance from the PS3, which came out as the uses of living room consoles were in flux. He also confirmed that the system will have an X86 processor, a “highly enhanced PC GPU” that will have “remarkable long term potential.”
The Playstation 4 will have 8 GB of high-speed unified memory, a hard drive for local storage, eight CPU cores and a “state-of-the-art” GPU on a single die, offering 2 teraflops of performance, according to Cerny. Cerny showed a live demo of Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 running on development hardware. The PS4 will also include a low-power sleep state, offering instant-on capabilities. There will also be background downloading when the console is asleep or even powered off. DLC gamers will be able to start playing once the download starts. Other features include always-on video compression and decompression systems, allowing players to share video immediately from recent gameplay. Players can also browse live gameplay video from friends or gaming celebrities, Cerny said. We will be able to connect with people we know using “real names and profile pictures seeded from your existing social network.” The Killzone: Shadow Fall video above was streamed from Facebook.

The system will also be able to “learn your like and dislike” and pre-download content based on what it discerns of your tastes. Overall, many of the features present in the PS3 will carry over to the PS4 only this upgrade will offer faster streaming, better graphics and social media functions. The controller, leaked a few weeks ago online, also is upgraded to include a trackpad and a camera and has dual shock capabilities. So how much? No details on pricing but its release is expected before the end of the year.
