The next generation of Sony video game consoles has a lot to offer. The PlayStation 4 has added several new weapons to its arsenal in terms of functionality in comparison to the PS3. Sporting an eight core x86-64 AMD "Jaguar" CPU alongside a 1.84 teraflop GPU and supported by 8GB of GDDR5 RAM and a 500GB mechanical hard drive, the PS4 represents an advanced level of gaming currently considered to be top-of-the-line. In the competitive gaming industry, the battle with Microsoft is probably the most intense, and some are saying that the advanced powers of the PS4 are going to keep it well ahead of the Xbox One for the remainder of this generation.
While the PlayStation4 has not changed in fundamental ways since its predecessor, there have definitely been some improvements under the hood, so to speak. The 8GB of RAM represents a 16-time increase in memory from the PS3. The PS4 also boasts faster USB outputs, a touchpad controller and an advanced camera.
The PlayStation Store has also undergone some changes. All games can be purchased in either a traditional, physical format or via digital download. Game downloads have been reported to take as little as an hour to complete, and titles can even be played before they have finished installing. Some games that were recently released like Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Call of Duty: Ghosts, can be upgraded to PS4-quality versions for a small, one-time fee. Being backwards compatible, however, the PlayStation 4 will still play the old disc.
In terms of how the PS4 performs compared to the PS3, one has only to look at the specifications. The hardware used to build the new console represents a major advancement for gamers. The menu screen, for one, has been streamlined compared to the reportedly dense interface of the PS3. Two horizontal feeds now separate games, apps, trophies and friends on the PlayStation 4 in a more easily-viewable way than its predecessor did. Cold boot times have been known to bring the home screen up and instantly usable in under 30 seconds with less icon pop-in than before. Streaming apps, like Netflix and Amazon, are also organized into their own folder, keeping them readily accessible.
The faster processors have also yielded advanced graphic outputs with almost nonexistent load times for a variety of games. These improved visuals also extend to media streaming apps and discs inserted into the Blu-Ray drive.
Overall, the PlayStation 4 has both met and exceeded the expectations that Sony has laid out for itself. The advanced technology behind the PS4 is expected to remain relevant for quite some time, or at least long enough to justify buying it before the next generation of consoles is introduced.
