Weekend Quencher 02/22/13 – Wow, Edition


After witnessing the PlayStation Meeting on Wednesday, where PS4 was revealed, all I can say is wow. It’s the weekend, friends, have anything to say about the reveal, the games – the features of PlayStation 4?

Because I think the entire thing went extremely well, and I’m also not worried or perturbed they didn’t show the actual console. That’ll be shown at E3 in June – Sony still needs to cause disruption when everyone else will be showing off their new digs. I speak of Microsoft, of course, who’ll surely come to E3 ready to show off what they’ve been cooking up. Oh, make no mistake, Xbox 720 will be revealed before E3, but both companies will save some ammunition for the big show in June.

But back to PS4 and the games. I am most excited for Killzone: Shadow Fall, of course. As some of you may know I’m an avid – no, fervent Killzone fan, so it’s no surprise that I’ve watched the gameplay video about 6 times, maybe 7 already.

But all the games were awesome, except Media Molecule’s  thing…. whatever it was… Watch Dogs, Infamous: Second Son, Destiny, Drive Club and the others played their parts.

DualShock 4 is simply boss. That’s all I’ll say.

The console is 16 times more powerful than PS3. Sixteen freaking times, guys! The social features are bar none, that Gaikai purchase Sony secured last year was the firm’s best move in years, as it’s proven to be at the core of the PlayStation 4, and so I think overall, Sony did a stellar job.

These are my thoughts, now I need to hear yours. By the way, over 1,500 of you watched the PlayStation Meeting Livestream on GT, which was just awesome. Have a great weekend, guys.

Next we’re covering Microsoft’s April event… Yes, it’s happening in April.

Oh, what are you guys up to? Sorry, I almost forgot. Forgive me, I’m a bit spent from all the PS4 coverage.

    presentation wise $ony did a BRILLIANT job!
    had the right amount of both technical info and games.
    i was expecting them to start with the games, than go into the services, than goodnight.
    but they dident, i was really shocked and excited to see the system architect there explaining what the system is and why they chose what they did.
    that was a very nice surprise!
    what was disappointing though was the system itself, i mean come on the APU $ony is using is a APU designed for cheap bottom of the line laptops!
    $ony always releases playstations with specs to give even the highest end PCs a run for their money!
    the ps4 though, cant even compete with a normal laptop, let alone a gaming laptop, let alone a gaming PC, let alone the powerhouse PC $ony always goes after!
    instead of releasing a car that can compete with the fastest hypercars out there, they have released a hatchback, and a pretty average hatchback at that!
    when the ps3 released to get a PC with similar specs you had to spend WELL over 3K!
    i know because i had just started my programming course, and i was looking at getting a system to do my work on.
    i either spent 3K on a desktop with similar specs to the ps3, or i could spend a third of that on a ps3!
    i chose ps3 because it had very similar power, 2K cheaper, and i could run other OS like ubuntu on there so it was a PC AND a console rather than just a PC.
    now though, forget when the ps4 comes out, today i could spend 600 bucks on a PC that would kick the royal light out of the ps4!
    and thats now, wait till the ps4 releases the GTX 700 series will release well before then so the 600 series will get a price drop, so ill be able to get a even more powerful system for the same price!
    simply put ps3 was THE most advanced hardware out there!
    ps4 is about 3 years old!

    May I just say that the specs of Sony’s consoles have never been too impressive on a PC level, but because the console is specifies to do certain tasks, the exact processing power does not have to be huge, the actual graphical output and processing speed are rivaling PCs due to the fact that it does not need to do the tasks that a PC needs to. Also the GPU and CPU architecture looks like it’s working really well even though the actual parts chosen aren’t that great. I think this means that the PS4 will have a great output with pretty cheap specs, making it a big rival to gaming PCs.
