Technology Product description / spec


PlayStation 4 (PS4) is a next generation computer entertainment system that redefines rich and immersive gameplay with powerful graphics and speed, intelligent personalisation, deeply integrated social capabilities and innovative second screen features.

  • Combined with PlayStation Network with Cloud technology, PS4 offers an expansive gaming ecosystem that is centred on gamers, enabling them to play when, where and how they want. PS4 was designed from the ground up to ensure that the very best games and the most immersive experiences reach PlayStation gamers.
  • PS4 accomplishes this by enabling 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. PS4 also fluidly connects players to the larger world of experiences offered by PlayStation across the console and mobile spaces and PlayStation Network (PSN).
  • The PS4 system architecture is distinguished by it's high performance and ease of development. PS4 is centred around a powerful custom chip that contains eight x86-64 cores and a state of the art graphics processor.
  • The Graphics Processing Unit has been enhanced in a number of ways, principally to allow for easier use of the GPU for general purpose computing such as physics simulation. The GPU contains a unified array of 18 compute units, which collectively generate 1.84 Teraflops of processing power that can be freely applied to graphics and simulation tasks.
  • PS4 is equipped with 8GB of unified memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform. The end result for gamers is new games with rich, high fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences that shatter expectations.
  • Social interaction is central to PS4 experiences, so new features were built into the actual foundation of the system's hardware architecture. PS4 provides dedicated, "always on" video compression and decompression systems that enable seamless uploading of gameplay.
  • For the first time ever, gamers can even share their epic triumphs with the press of a button. Gamers 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 the gamer plays. Gamers can share their images and videos on social networking services such as Facebook.
  • PS4 also enhances social spectating by enabling gamers to broadcast their gameplay in real time to friends using live internet streaming services. During live broadcasts, friends can make comments on the streamed gameplay and, if a gamer gets stuck on a challenging level, friends can also join in the game in completely new ways.

Customer reviews and ratings

Sony PS4 Console with 500GB Hard Drive. 4.8 5 118 123
Fantastic I do enjoy the PS4 a lot, graphics aren't too bad but in comparison to the PS3, they're miles ahead. The few set backs is a lack of external memory usage. I wanted to personalise it with family photos, watch films and play music as well but the functionality isn't there. If you're into it for pure gaming and nothing else, go for it. 26 August 2014
We bought this as a gift 25 August 2014
PS4 Limitations No great step up from the PS3 as the PS3 was from the PS2. Appears very limited and restrictive in what it can do apart from actual gameplay. 20 August 2014
A dream of a machine This is not a long revue. To cut to the chase! Simply a well thought out and beautifully crafted piece of kit. The PS4 is truly a dedicated games machine that shines. Fast ... trouble free to set up and does the job on all fronts. Verdict ...... Buy it! You wont be disappointed. 19 August 2014
1st class game console outstanding graphics I had been reading reviews for months on this PS4 Console wondering if I should purchase one as I mainly only play the fifa football games on my xbox 360 However I decided to go for it and purchased one c/w the FIFA 14 game 2 weeks ago from Argos and I can confirm that the graphics and game play is totally out standing. 13 August 2014
