Now that the Playstation 4 has been released world wide(sorry Japan) I thought I would give you a run down of the top 5 things I am looking forward to with the PS4.
1) Share Features: If you aren't aware, replacing the start and select buttons of the Dualshock 3, the Dualshock 4 has a Share Button and an Options Button. The Share lets you take a screen shot of what ever is on your screen at the time. This feature will for me personally be really amazing, you can expect many more gaming diary's with screen shots in them to come in the future! While the Options button takes the place of the Start button, opening the menu etc.
2)Naughty Dog: Naughty Dog are the development team and creators of(among others) the Uncharted series and The Last of Us. Both of which set a new bench mark for what a gorgeous games looks like and also how large scale stories can be told. With the teaser of Unhcarted 4 at the launch of the PS4 in NA, and then this teaser from Todd Stashwick who narrated the teaser, we are coming in to an exciting time for what is next from this First Party giant!
..We are sure to be in for a treat when we get more details of Uncharted which will likely be at E3 2014!!
3)Dualshock 4: The Dualshock 4 is the single biggest aesthetic change to the PS4. The size has changed dramatically, with the Dualshock 4 being considerably larger than its predecessor, also with the addition of the touch pad and light bar, we are sure to get some unique gameplay features such a menu navigation!
4)Better graphics: Obviously this goes without saying but the PS4 will be able to put out far, far better graphics compared to the PS3. The PS4 has a whopping 8GBs of RAM, where as the PS3 had a meagre 512 MB of RAM, that means the PS4 has 16 times the amount of RAM the PS3 had!! I don't know a thing about the in depth workings of the PS4 but rest assured, you eyes are in for a feast with the PS4.
5) PC Master race: You will only have to spend a few minutes looking though the comments of a gaming video on YouTube to see that everybody is arguing that the PC has better graphics and general higher quality. The key word wrong in that statement is has, no no no it HAD better graphics and a HAD a higher quality, but as we console gamers walk into the next generation of gaming, no more can they hold anything over our heads, we are for the first time in history; truly equal... for now!
That brings me to the end of all the things I am looking forward to with the PS4, and no matter your console preference the coming years are going to be the most exciting time there has ever been for a gamer!
