PlayStation 4: Why The Next-Gen Gaming Console Is Relevant For You

PlayStation 4: Why The Next-Gen Gaming Console Is Relevant For You

The upcoming release of the PlayStation 4, the apparently touted ‘next-generation gaming console’ scheduled on November 15 in the US has created quite a splash in the gaming community. The latest offering from Sony starts around $499, and a number of its catchy features and titles already have gaming enthusiasts excited around the globe.

“So what’s actually the fuss all about?”- might be your question as a non-gamer, or simply non-techie person. But for a hardcore gamer, or simply one who loves to have a complete entertainment device at home, the PlayStation 4 is a much awaited release. With the PS4 coming equipped with a GPU of 18 Compute Units, it can generate processing power up to 1.84 teraflops that can make your graphics around eight percent sharper and faster than before, said a recent report on The Guardian quoting industry insiders. What does that mean for you? Simply put, it means that you will be able to experience gameplay graphics which ‘almost’ resembles reality, or at least premium quality animations.

A major feature of the PS4 is its cloud computing compatibility with online gaming facilities connecting you to remote servers on the cloud. As a result, online players can explore and help cloud gaming evolve, with features like artificial intelligence and macro-controls being generated on a more organized basis. As a result, it is quite possible that in the near future, PS4 would pave the way for a rich host of cloud-based games equipped with life-like characters and intelligence.

As far as the game titles are concerned, Sony released the full list of games available on the PS4 a few months back on its official PS4 blog. A number of blockbuster titles like the Uncharted series and LittleBigPlanet titles would be exclusively available on the PlayStation 4 alongside multi-platform titles like Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Fifa 2014. However, backward compatibility is a major issue with the new PlayStation, as most old titles even from PS 3 would not be compatible with the new PS4. However, according to industry sources, a limited number of PS3 titles might be available on PS4 from next year on a streaming basis from the cloud.

Aside from hardcore gaming enthusiasts, the PS4 is also a complete entertainment device for the home user. It comes with a broad array of exciting features, including the now commonplace practice of playing music and video on your console alongside streaming online TV and YouTube. The PS4 Vita is a significant introduction in this regard, as it enables you with remote playing options and multi-screen output right from your device. Also, with true 1080p video output and HDMI interface, the PS4 can be hooked to a host of modern TV and monitors out there which provide you with crystal-clear display.

In a nutshell, the PlayStation 4 is a significant step from Sony toward the future of next-generation gaming. With a multitude of features and exciting titles, the PS4 is certainly a console that is here to stay for a long time.
