Sony announced their much anticipated PlayStation 4 in New York, but oddly there was no actual console box shown. Sony did say what will be inside the new console though. Here are the specs of the console:
- An 8-core 64-bit x86 CPU built by AMD
- A GPU made up of 18 compute units, which collectively generate 1.84 Teraflops of processing power
- 8GB of GDDR5 RAM
- A Blu-ray drive
- 802.11n WiFi
- USB 3.0
- Bluetooth 2.1
- HDMI and optical output
Now you're probably reading all those specs and not having a clue what any of it means. But let's just say this new console is going to be an absolute beast.
The familiar PSN has now been named to Sony Entertainment Network. Your Sony Entertainment Network account can connect to Facebook, enabling you to share screenshots, videos and other various content.
The console has a neat low power sleep mode. So instead of turning off the console completely, it'll go to sleep, you can then boot it up again and you can continue from where you left off.
Who knows why Sony didn't show an actual console but I'm guessing it's because they haven't got the design finished yet. There's also no word on pricing or release date.
