Just a couple weeks after Xbox made its huge announcement about the new Xbox One, Sony comes along and releases the specs and pricing on the new Playstation 4. This gaming system is stacked with the latest technology and carries a price tag $100 less than the Xbox One.
The Playstation 4 is using an eight core processor with a next-gen Radeon graphics engine. This console is designed for hardcore gaming. It’s definitely not as fast as an Intel designed chip, but stripped away from all the extra bells and whistles of a regular OS, this processor will run the most complex and processor intensive games seamlessly.
It will include the Blueray player and the good ol’ DVD player. It also has HDMI, AV, and optical output.
The Sony camera is amazing. 1280 x 800 and can even cut out players from background or separate players in front from the players in the back. Very intuitive technology.
