PlayStation 4 is for the players who want to set out on incredible journeys through immersive new worlds and be part of a deeply connected gaming community.
With an outstanding line-up of games already available - and many more currently in development - PS4 is the best place to play amazing top-tier blockbusters and innovative indie hits.
The PS4--ten times more powerful than the PS3--is the world’s most powerful games console. Within its sleek and compact shell lies a 500GB hard drive, full HD (1080p) capability, superior speed and graphics, and an internal power supply to save you space. With 5-star reviews across the board, from the likes of Stuff magazine, a People’s Choice Award from IGN readers, and T3’s Gadget of the Year Award, the PS4 truly is the best place to play.
The Dualshock 4 wireless controller features familiar controls while incorporating new ways to interact with games and other players. Improved dual analog sticks and trigger buttons offer an even greater sense of control, while the capacitive touch pad opens up endless potential for new gameplay possibilities.

It’s not just all about next-gen gaming. With DVD and Blu-ray film support, as well as featuring the top digital apps such as Spotify, TV from Sky (Sky Go Extra), Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, WWE Network, BBC iPlayer, and YouTube, the PS4 is also the home for unmissable entertainment.
The PlayStation Network (PSN) supports up to 2,000 online friends, up to eight users for cross-game party chat, and with Share Play you have the ability to virtually pass the controller from you to your friend over the internet, even if they do not own the game. The PlayStation Plus membership service gives you an instant game collection, two games a month which you can download directly, and a range of exclusive discounts in the PlayStation Store.

Simply hit the SHARE button on the controller, scan through the last few minutes of gameplay, tag it and return to the game—the video uploads as you play. The PS4 system also enhances social spectating by enabling you to broadcast your gameplay in real-time.
Gamer focused, developer inspired
The PS4 system focuses on the gamer, ensuring that the very best games and the most immersive experiences are possible on the platform. The PS4 system enables the greatest game developers in the world to unlock their creativity and push the boundaries of play through a system that is tuned specifically to their needs. The PS4 system is centered around a powerful custom chip that contains eight x86-64 cores and a state of the art 1.84 TFLOPS graphics processor with 8 GB of ultra-fast GDDR5 unified system memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform. The end result is new games with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences.
Remote Play on the PS4 system fully unlocks the PlayStation Vita system’s potential, making it the ultimate companion device. With the PS Vita system, gamers will be able to seamlessly play a range of PS4 titles on the beautiful 5-inch display over Wi-Fi access points in a local area network.
