Sony officially presented the Playstation 4

In an event organized by the company Sony, they presented their new Playstation 4, which according to some sources is supposed to come on the market in November.

The fourth generation of the Playstation comes with 8 core x86 processor, new graphics processor, 8GB GDDR5 memory and DualShock 4 joysticks. The new joystick have a touch pad sharing button lighting strip and the possibility of connecting the headphones. Luminous tape is used to determine the distance of the player from the console, using the new PS4 camera.

Another new thing is the background upload and download, which will allow to the console to upgrade the games and the system, even if the device is switched off. All this is possible with the help of the secondary processor that runs in the background, while the primary is in charge of the game play. In addition, the new Playstation 4 will be more social. Namely, players can stream while playing, and if your friend noticed that you are in a rush, you can join in the game, of course, if possible.

The press talked about upgrading the Playstation console ecosystem and how it could be integrated into other platforms such as the Vita, but also in smartphones and tablet computers. Playstation games developed for previous generations would not be compatible with the new version of this gaming console, but Sony are hoping it will be resolved while the console goes out in the market.

In addition to updates for the Playstation 4, which were presented at the event in New York, were announced and the first games for this console. The CEO of Guerilla Games has announced a new sequel on Killzone: Shadowfall, and also Driveclub and Diablo 3 from Blizzard were announced.
