PlayStation 4 Review
In this Playstation 4 review I will go over everything you need to know including image quality, build quality and design, usability, and much more!
The PlayStation 4 features a PC-like architecture, and packs in an x86-64 AMD “Jaguar” 8 cores processor, a powerful PC-grade GPU to churn out those stunning graphics AMD next-generation Radeon 8 GB of memory and also features a massive internal hard-drive.
The PS4 seems to be winning the new-generation console race against the Xbox One at least, in terms of sales and its growing library of games, with yet more exclusives to come, make it a tempting purchase.
Sony has doubled the 500GB storage space inside the console, bringing it up to a massive 1TB and matching the newest version of the Xbox One. That means more games; more movies and more apps can all be squeezed into the matte black box.
Sony has also slimmed down the chassis of the console itself – it’s now 10% slimmer and 8% more power efficient than the model launched in 2013. It still looks the same though, which is a good thing as the slanting design definitely wins out over Microsoft’s hulking Xbox One.

Getting ready to celebrate its two-year anniversary in November, the PlayStation 4 is really getting into its stride now and is well on its way to becoming one of the most successful games consoles of all time.
After selling an incredible one million units in just its first 24 hours on sale in the US, the PS4 has now been snapped up by nearly 24 million gamers worldwide at its last count.
With more graphical power than the Xbox One, 32 times more system memory than the PS3 and a firm focus on pure gaming experiences rather than media might, the PS4 has established itself as the console to beat of this generation.
There are several cool features worth exploring, whether you want to be social with your friends or play around with the console. With this in mind, here are 10 great things about the PlayStation 4:
PlayStation Vita Link-Up
Perhaps one of the coolest features the PlayStation 4 possesses is the ability to link up to your PS Vita. Not only does your portable device work as a secondary player, but you’ll also be able to carry the display to the portable screen. This is nice to try out in a big house, when you’re in one room and the system’s in another. Just make sure your firmware is up to date, and then Enable Remote Play with your PS Vita device. It’s easy to link up and use.
Plenty of Video Apps
Like the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 4 can access a number of video applications, including Netflix, NHL GameCenter and Hulu Plus. However, you also have access to a number of others, including the WWE Network and Crunchyroll. Better yet, they’re all under one helpful menu on the main screen, so you don’t have to hunt around to use them.
App Switching on the Fly
Let’s say you want to play a quick game of Resogun, but you don’t feel like shutting down the Wrestlemania feed from your WWE Network account. No problem – double tap the PS home button twice, and the system will switch between the new app and the previous app that you used. No more having to shuffle around the home menu.
Video Sharing With the Push of a Button – No, Literally
If you’re not much of a social gamer, the PlayStation 4’s Share button will make you one. With the press of a button, you have the option to share videos easier than ever through your Facebook account. You’ll be able to edit clips in length of up to 15 minutes, then upload them with ease. There’s also live-streaming options available, although it helps to set up a YouTube account first. Try the video upload feature, then explore a bit further. You’ll be a gaming star in no time!
