The Sony Playstation 4 also hit the US and European markets last month, after months of hype. The biggest buzz has been about the new DualShock4 controller, which sports a new touchpad, built-in speakers and headset jack, a share button to push game recordings and achievements to social media, and a colored light system to distinguish players from one another. Its highly improved set of graphics capabilities promise a theoretical peak performance of 1.84 TFLOPS. PS4’s new take on social media allows you to not only watch friends playing live from a different location, but allows you to comment and even take over play for them.
The best part is that the PS4 has gone zoneless, meaning you can buy your games wherever you want, and play them wherever you want. With a standard system going for about $400, it is also $100 (LE 700) cheaper than the Xbox One.
Like the Xbox One, however, there’s no backwards compatibility with previous Playstations: The games you love on PS3, stay on PS3. PS4 also charges membership fees for access to Playstation Plus, its multi-player universe.
