PlayStation 4 Is Officially Announced Along With Future Game Releases At Sony’s PlayStation Event

In the beginning of the event Cerny got into detail of what’s really inside the console, the Ps4 will use the X86 CPU with 8GB memory and a local hard drive; it will also use the APU technology and GDDR5 memory that is found in high end graphics cards.

One of main focal points Cerny and the rest of the developers that spoke put a lot of emphasis on Simple, Immediate, Social, Integrated and personalized as words to describe the Ps4. The first major thing announced was that the console has a secondary chip for uploading and downloading in the background as you play, Example if you’re playing a game and you want to record it all you have to do is press a button on the controller and it will record that very second, that same chip also lets you play Digital games as it’s being downloaded.

Sony’s Ps vita will be compatible with the Ps4, letting the gamer switch between the two without starting your game over, somewhat like the Wii U controller. The social aspect of ps4 looks to be impressive as well players can now tune in to fellow gamers and watches them playing through there game, players can even ask there spectators for help, going as far as giving the spectator the ability to take control of the game. All which Sony’s Anderw House said will create “Experiences that surpass gamer’s wildest expectations.”

From there capabilities of the Ps4 graphical prowess were shown in demo reels of real time graphic engines like the Unreal engine 4, square enix luminous engine, and Capcom’s impressive Panta Rhei engine, also shown was the improvements of the Move and motion stick and how it could be used in the Ps4, with games allowing the player to create things in full scale 3D.

The final hour of the Event was basically dedicated to the games that are going to be released when the Ps4 hits. Games like Sucker Punches Infamous: Second Son and Bungie’s Destiny didn’t have actually in game footage, but developers Guerrilla Games Killzone: Shadow Fall and Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs had on hand real time game demos live.

In the end Sony’s PlayStation Event was what I expected it to be and that is the official announcement of the PS4. From top-tier exclusives from its best studios to multiplatform experiences from respected publishers and developers in the industry, the Ps4 looks to start off with a bang.

Here are the gameplay footage of the new Killzone and a brand new Watch Dogs game footage.

Bioshock Infinite brings the Siren in a new video

Bioshock Infinity is already going to new levels of development for enemies and challenges, the Siren is their latest reveal in enemies to torture you in the game world. Acting as a host gathering souls of the dead, the Siren is able to resurrect the bodies you left behind and set them back at you leaving the choice of action to you for how to go forward. Do you kill the Siren and take additional damage by running and hiding or do you engage your undead foes and then take down the Siren? The choice is entirely yours and it seems the team had no intent of making either decision a forgiving one.

The Heavy Hitter series is done but really how else could they have topped this for damage? A supernatural entity raising the dead while you fight… great, just what everyone wanted.

Check out the video below for the goods:
