Sony PS4 review

W ith the introduction of the Sony PlayStation 4 at Gamescom 2013, it was called the ‘rebirth of the gaming world’. According to its developers, the Sony PS4 is the most powerful game platform ever. The staggering graphics provide a more intense game experience and the memory and the processor are up to 10x more powerful than its predecessor, the PS3. The arrival of the Sony PS4 is accompanied by many new games that are available exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 4. Not only do the games look nicer on the Sony PS4, there are also many new possibilities, such as Remote Play between the PS4 and the PS Vita, for example. Of course, you also have the PlayStation Network with endless entertainment possibilities.

Sony PlayStation 4 specifications

The adjusted x86-64 AMD Jaguar processor with 8 cores delivers unmatched performance. The PS4 has a hard disk with 500GB and a mere 8GB in memory. This means that the new Sony game computer does not freeze and you can easily perform several tasks at the same time. You can download system software and game updates and keep on playing at the same time. Moreover, the PlayStation 4 remembers your playing style and intuitively keeps track of the content that you use the most. The PlayStation 4 offers a very intuitive interface; you can register with facial recognition and operate the menu via speech commands.
