PlayStation 4 full specs and official pictures

playstation 4 officialSony has taken the opportunity to finally reveal the design for their next generation games console, the Sony PlayStation 4, at the E3 games conference at the Los Angeles Convention center.

The new Sony PlayStation 4 design takes the form of a slanted rectangle and features a two tone matt/gloss finish, losing the curves associated with the last generation PS3 console, and more in-line with Microsoft’s Xbox One console. There is definitely a battle going on for the space under your living room television.

The Sony PlayStation 4 console will be equipped with 8-cores of AMD Jaguar processing power and uses a 8GB GDDR5 RAM and next generation AMD Radeon graphics card to process your games with 500GB of storage, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, and 1 x AUX port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and HDMI port all being present.

The new Sony PlayStation 4 measures 275 x 53 x 305mm, and the Dual Shock 4 controller weighs 210g, and is fitted with a 1000mAh battery and a built-in mono speaker. The specs for the camera include a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 (x2) pixel capture at 60fps.

Sony has landed a super blow to Microsoft in the next-generation consoles wars by announcing that their next-generation Sony PlayStation 4 console will be region free.

The news of the regional unlocking was announced by Sony’s Brad Douglas at E3, and Sony will allow developers to choose whether they actually wish to lock their games to a specific region.

This is a completely different option to that being offered by Microsoft for the Xbox One games console which requires an Internet connection to be made every 24 hours to validate games.

Microsoft announced that they would be launching their new next generation Xbox One console in November so you can expect the new Sony PlayStation 4 to launch around the same time.
