Description

The Power to Perform

PlayStation®4 was designed from the ground up to ensure that game creators can unleash their imaginations to develop the very best games and deliver new play experiences never before possible.

With ultra-fast customized processors and 8GB of high-performance unified system memory, PS4 is the home to games with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences that shatter expectations.

Personalised Content

The PS4 system has the ability to learn about your preferences. It will learn your likes and dislikes, allowing you to discover content pre-loaded and ready to go on your console in your favourite game genres or by your favourite creators. Players also can look over game-related information shared by friends, view friends' gameplay with ease, or obtain information about recommended content, including games, TV shows and movies.

PlayStation®4 Games in the Palm of Your Hand

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.

Share the Fun instantly

Stay Connected with PlayStation

Chat with your friends, watch their latest gameplay videos and give them tips using the PlayStation® App for mobile and tablet devices.

Play As You Download

Increase your play time with the ability to play games while they're downloading titles. When a player purchases a game that is enabled with this feature, the PS4 system downloads a portion of the game, so play can start, while the rest is downloaded in the background during actual gameplay.

Create and share narrated game walkthroughs in High Definition video and chat through four built-in microphones. Log in instantly with facial recognition and use voice inputs to navigate the PS4 system menu hands-free.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic!

Reviewed by Dieter R on

Amazing, well designed hardware and software. Runs super quiet and the operating system is easy to use and runs really smooth. The controller is really comfortable and feels well put together.

Most of the big game titles are cross generational at the moment, but they definitely run a lot better on the PS4 thanks to all that extra processing horsepower. There is also a wide selection of fresh and interesting downloadable games.

Sony ftw!

Reviewed by Raidz19 on

The PS4 has won the console war ever since the first reveal at E3.
Sony did everything right and are still making it even better.
I really can't fault it in anyway. It looks sleek and fancy and is flatter than one expects. It runs super quiet(except for when it loads the disk at the start) and the interface is simplistic yet good looking. Not to mention most games run at better frame rates and pixels than they do on the Xbox One!
So why not opt for a PS4!

Leader of the Pack

Reviewed by Catherine C on

Since the arrival of the next generation of consoles, it's been made abundantly clear that Sony are wanting to prove that they know what players and game developers want.
This console has taken the best of all worlds and wrapped it up in one amazingly beautiful piece of machinery.

The only suggestion I could make to any one else that's going to buy one of these beauties, is to think about buying yourself a charging station for the controllers. The console only comes with one cable to charge the controller, and I assure you with the amount of gaming you're going to want to do on this machine, you're going to need all the extra "juice" you can get your hands on.

Winning the Race

Reviewed by Tom E on

If there was any Doubt about which console would be the better of the "next generation" the PS4 sales speak for themselves. A fantastic piece of hardware that takes all your gaming needs and combines them into a sleek, good looking, and surprisingly small, unit. Constantly being updated with patches, now able to play 3D/Blueray movies, and with DLNA support being added soon, you wont need anything else to meet your media center requirements.
