Just the thought of Sony PlayStation 4 can give goose bumps to the true gaming enthusiasts out there and Sony understands the burden of providing the best gaming console time and again to its fans. The PS4 is no exception. It takes all the good features of its predecessor and combines them with some well thought out new features to provide you with the arguably the best gaming console in the world today.
The PS4 comes to you in a half gloss and half matte finish which give it a high end premium look and feel. The device itself looks sleek with a slanting design. In comparison to its closest rival, the Xbox One, this device is half the size and weight and all you really need to do is pull it out of the box, plug it in and start playing. It measures 275 x 53 x 305 mm which is close to the second generation PS3 Slim. Fortunately, the makers have put in all the power supply inside the system itself so you don’t need to hop over any bricks to keep this little baby running. There is slit right in the middle into which you can slot in your game or blue ray movies while towards the right you can charge up to two Dual Shock 4 controllers. Luckily, now you can charge the controllers even when the system is off. The blue indicator light makes this nifty device look right out of a sci-fi movie.
The PS4 is all about powerful gaming and a slew of additional features which make it more than just a gaming console. It integrates with other devices well and provides you with loads of options to choose from. For all this to happen Sony has invested in a custom made single chip processor which combines the 1.84 teraflop GPU based on AMD’s Radeon and the eight core x86-64 AMD “Jaguar” CPU. For the layman, this translates into a power punch which is amazingly ten times more powerful than its predecessor. It is coupled with 8 gigs of GDDR5 RAM and a 500GB hard disk which can be swapped out easily for a faster or larger disc depending on your budget and requirement. The device does not have any other knobs or slots on the front and provides an Ethernet, HDMI, optical audio out and PS Camera auxiliary connection on the back side.
The PS4 is not a gaming console. It’s a computer on adrenaline rush. It not only gives you the best gaming experience yet, but also allows for a great media hub experience and seamless social networking so that you can stay connected with your groups while enjoying gaming action on your device. Setting up the device is a breeze. If you don’t have an internet connection you can straight away jump into gaming but if you do, the PS4 will connect and update the device before you can make use of PlayStation Store and other features. It will let you play remotely through the PS Vita as well. With features like these, the PS4 is sure to win over many hearts.
Another awesome feature on the device is gameplay video sharing. A feature that you can disable lets the device record the last fifteen minutes of every gameplay session which you can share with friends and family with just a push of the Share button on your Dual Shock 4 controller.
The Dual Shock 4 will not shock die hard PS fans as it does not deviate from the original design elements. Instead, it shows that Sony has been listening to customers and the latest version of the controller puts together numerous tweaks to improve gameplay. Subtle changes like the increased gap between the analog sticks and rubberized grip for better hold during long haul gaming sessions are absolutely delightful features to have.
While not too many games are out yet for the PS4, Sony claims over 180 are in development. Going by the past experience, it is only a matter of time before this loop is filled up. Interestingly, you can now access your PS4 through your tablet or phone as well if you are away from it through the PS4 app. Sony has taken great pains to get its gaming console in sync with universal connectivity and ability to sync with various devices. The only problem with the device currently is its inability to stream video via DLNA which should be fixed soon based on user feedback. You can navigate into PS4 system menus through voice commands or facial recognition making it a completely hands free operation. Automatic background downloads make it easy for you to continue playing while the system sorts itself out. Given the hype around this device, it is no surprise that the Sony PS4 will give tough competition to the Xbox One as the reigning gaming console across the world. Go get yours today.

The Sony PS4 is the titan of gaming consoles. It is better looking, more powerful, more advanced and more gaming friendly than its main rivals.
The console is fast and furious. It doesn’t have the mild software glitches that PS3 had either which is a plus point. The user interface is brilliant and unmatchable to any console we have seen so far, including Xbox One.
The UI is not too complicated, not too flashy – it is just ideal. The wireless controllers with DualShock 4 make overall gaming more fun. The design of PS4 make it portable and a much more decorative device to place alongside your TV/LCD.
Downsides? There are not many PS 4 exclusives out there at the moment and PS 4 needs some good exclusive games like Xbox One has. It doesn’t have media streaming support – that can be added in the reiterations, we would certainly recommend Sony to do so.
