If you missed the February 20, 2013 console presentation, I’ll describe it for you guys and gals. See, rumor has it that a new console is emerging right before our very own eyes and the rumor was true. Introducing the PS4 everybody!
Sadly this isn’t the real thing (BOOO!). Calm down folks, when I was watching the presentation they didn’t even show the console- just the controller.
They said that the controller will have a share button with which apparently you can post some stuff and show it to your friends in the Sony Entertainment Network, which is not bad. You also get a touch screen which, honestly, in my opinion: why a touch screen? The Wii U showed the use of the screen and it is good, but why the dual-shock controller with just a touch screen? It has the joystick to move around for what purpose? Sorry, I know it is just an early info release on the PS4 and I don’t want to count my chickens before they hatch, so I’ll wait and see how it turns out. I think it has something to do with the console which I wish they started out at the beginning and showed the games last. I heard that the console will have 8gbs (I think the Wii U deluxe edition beats that), and the graphics will have an x84 a CPU of 8086. WOWs.
Trust me. I’m not kidding you when I saw the trailers of the games. One of my favorites is Watchdogs. The graphics were so real that I thought that sooner or later, on the next generation of games, it will be so real that they will look like us in the real world OFF SCREEN! Oh yeah, the games on the other hand look pretty great, and here are a few lists they show.
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Deep Down (working title)
- Diablo III
- Final Fantasy (TBA)
- Infamous: Second Son
- Killzone: Shadow Fall
- Rocketbirds 2: Evolution
- The Witcher 3: Wild The Witness
Some games I find cool, but there is one bad side for all the cool features of the console: no back work compatible! Yes, it is not PS3 compatible, and that I find not good on my wish lists. Sure, they said that they will make PS3 games downloadable, as well as PS2 and PS1 games. That is good, but for me I’m pretty much of a cheap person who doesn’t spend much money since I need it for college. Learn my words everyone. It will be helpful when buying or being foolish spenders. That is why I prefer rental, so that no one will complain that I have to live with it, but remember it is just my choice.
So that is all for this month, hope you all have a great day and I’ll see you next time.
