NEW YORK – Most of what Sony said or didn’t say during the company's PlayStation 4 press event Wednesday (Feb. 20) has been widely reported, including on this website.
All business-related questions aside (whether PS4 can save the day for Sony, etc.), the following are a few details on the technical specifications of the new PS4 hardware.
Although Sony has neither shown nor demonstrated the main PS4 game console, the spec sheets below show you a glimpse of what’s inside.
During the event, Sony did demonstrate what it calls its “DualShock 4” game controller. It features a touch pad, motion sensor and Bluetooth. Mark Cerny, Sony’s lead system architect, spoke extensively about what he called “a share button,” presumably designed for gamers to stream live gameplay to UStream, upload recorded gameplay videos to Facebook and others.
Another piece of hardware that comes with PS4 is the PlayStation 4 Eye. Shaped like a bar, the unit has dual cameras, each capable of capturing uncompressed 1280-x-800-pixel video.
