Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4)

 

The first fully redesigned PlayStation in seven long years sports a fresh look, an all-new interface, some unique features, and a much more comfortable controller.

Attractive, compact design. DualShock 4 feels much better than the Sixaxis or DualShock 3 controllers before it. Great streaming support. Many new features

Most features require a PlayStation Network connection. Non-free-to-play multiplayer requires a PS Plus subscription. DualShock 4 lightbar can't be turned off

It's the eighth video game console generation now, and Sony has been active for four of them. The PlayStation is in its fourth iteration (not including the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita), and Sony has helpfully and consistently named it the...

Sony PlayStation 4 review

 

Seven years is a technological eternity. Yet the PlayStation 3 has sold well for that long, ever since DJ Fatman Scoop and Ludacris hosted its blowout launch event in New York City in 2006. At launch, the PlayStation 3 was big, heavy, and expensive —...

Fantastic controller ; Handsome console ; Simple, game-focused interface

Not enough great games yet ; Occasional worrisome performance problems ; Interface doesn't scale well for power users

Welcome to the next generation

PlayStation 4 review: fast, powerful, worth it

 

More Info48 hours with the PlayStation 4: gaming and first impressionsThe seven big little details we love about the PlayStation 4Sony PlayStati

Dramatic improvement over PS3 gamepad ; Clickable touchpad ; The best triggers on any gamepad

Terrible battery life ; Analog stick coating isn't grippy enough

The DualShock 4 is everything gamers wanted from Sony's next gamepad. Unlike the DualShock 3, we only have minor complaints for the PlayStation 4's controller. It's not simply a controller we'll "put up with" for the rare exclusive PS4 titles; it's one...

Sony PlayStation 4 review

 

Many of the PlayStation 4 apps and functions only just became available to test, while a few others are still being rolled out. With that in mind, we will continue to test the system throughout the week, and we will update this article accordingly.

Powerful hardware hasn’t even reached its full potential ; Much-improved DualShock 4 controller ; Multitasking allows background downloads, music over games and more ; Sharing content is simple ; Justifies owning a Vita

Many features still on the way, like Gaikai streaming games ; Baffling lack of DLNA and MP3 support

Sleeker, faster and more flexible than ever, Sony’s PlayStation 4 turns out to be a formidable force in the living room.

Sony PlayStation 4 Review

 

So I finally bit the bullet.

First-time-out faults aside, the PS4 has a lot of potential, and of the two next-gen consoles that have come out, the PS4 seems to be the leaner, meaner, slightly more powerful game console. If I gambled, I’d go with the PS4; it may not have all of the...

Review: Sony PlayStation 4

 

Sony serves up power and performance with the PS4

Great design, excellent build quality- Cutting-edge processor and graphics performance- Much improved OS and UI- DualShock 4 controller outstanding- Superb second-screen options with PS Vita, iOS, Android- PlayStation Plus great value- Expandable storage

Limited multimedia functionality at launch- Will take time for Sony to fully unlock its potential- Currently not a lot of must-have gaming titles

Sony PlayStation 4

 

New game consoles have arrived, and the PlayStation 4 is among the best gaming consoles we've seen. See what makes the PS4 a great option for new gamers.

The PlayStation 4 is focused on games, whether on disc or downloadable

This console does not support many multimedia files or apps at launch

The PS4 takes the crown as the best new gaming console because it offers the best gaming options such as remote play with the PlayStation Vita and free games with PlayStation Plus.

Sony PS4 review

 

PlayStation 4 is a fantastic console that's improved with age

Great performance ; PS Plus good value ; DualShock 4 is ace! ; Excellent graphics ; Remote Play works

Media features lacking ; More apps needed ; No simple DLNA ; Lacks big exclusives

The most powerful games console in the world, the PS4 is even better than it was a year ago. With AAA games available and features added, it's becoming the console we wanted from the start.

Sony PS4 review

 

The Sony PS4 has made its way to T3 Towers - we'll bring you our full review very soon. Meanwhile, here are our first impressions...

Powerful spec ; Great controller ; Stylish looks

Lack of exclusive games ; Not backwards compatible ; Media a bit light

While we've had a bit of a play with the PS4, it still too early to reach any definitive conclusions, although we have now played some of the games (see above) and checked out the UI and Share button.
