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
PS4 also fluidly connects players to the larger world of experiences offered
by PlayStation, across the console and mobile spaces, and PlayStation
The PS4 system architecture is distinguished by its high performance and ease
of development. PS4 is centered around a powerful custom chip that contains
eight x86–64 cores and a state of the art graphics processor.
The Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) has been enhanced in a number of ways,
principally to allow for easier use of the GPU for general purpose computing
(GPGPU) 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 freely be applied to graphics, simulation tasks, or some mixture
of the two.
PS4 is equipped with 8 GB of unified system memory, easing game creation and
increasing the richness of content achievable on the platform. GDDR5 is used for
this memory, giving the system 176 GB/second of bandwidth and providing a
further boost to graphics performance. The end result for gamers is new games
with rich, high-fidelity graphics and deeply immersive experiences that shatter
Shared Game Experiences
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 enables seamless uploading of gameplay. For the first time ever, gamers can
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 to their friends 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 such as
Ustream. 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 the game in completely new ways. For example, friends can offer health
potions or special weapons when a player needs them most during actual
Furthermore, users can connect their Facebook account with Sony Entertainment
Network account. Through PS4, users are able to deepen their connections through
co-op play or “cross-game chat”.
PS4 Second Screens
PS4 integrates second screens, including PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita),
smartphones and tablets, to wrap gamers in their favorite content wherever they
are. A key feature enabled by second screens is “Remote Play” and PS4 fully
unlocks its potential by making PS Vita the ultimate companion device. With PS
Vita, gamers will be able to seamlessly pull PS4 titles from their living room
TVs and play them on PS Vita’s beautiful 5-inch display and intuitive dual
analog sticks over Wi-Fi networks*1. It is SCEI’s long-term vision is to make
most PS4 titles playable on PS Vita*2.
A new application from SCE called “PlayStation®App” will enable iPhone,
iPad, and AndroidTM based smartphones and tablets*3 to become second screens.
Once installed on these devices, users can, for example, see maps on their
second screens when playing an adventure game, purchase PS4 games while away
from home and download it directly to the console at home, or remotely watch
other gamers playing on their devices.
PS4 radically reduces the lag time between players and their content. PS4
features “suspend mode” which keeps the system in a low power state while
preserving the game session. The time it takes today to boot a console and load
a saved game will be a thing of the past. With PS4, gamers just hit the power
button again and are promptly back playing the game at the exact point where
they left off. Additionally, users can boot a variety of applications including
a web browser when playing a game on PS4.
PS4 also enables games to be downloaded or updated in the background, or even
in stand-by mode. The system takes it one step further by making digital titles
playable as they are being downloaded. When a player purchases a game, PS4
downloads just a fraction of the data so gamers can start playing immediately,
and the rest is downloaded in the background during actual gameplay.
Personalized, Curated Content
On the newly designed PS4 menu screen, players can look over game-related
information shared by friends, view friends’ gameplay with ease, or obtain
information of recommended content, including games, TV shows and movies. The
long-term goal of PS4 is to reduce download times of digital titles to zero: if
the system knows enough about a player to predict the next game they will
purchase, then that game can be loaded and ready to go before they even click
the “buy” button. PS4 will further enrich users’ entertainment
experiences, by meeting their potential needs.
Gaming in the Cloud
Launched in November 2006, PlayStation Network, a network service for
PlayStation users, now operates in 67 countries and regions 4 around the world
with the total number of downloaded content of more than 2.8 billion 5.
