PlayStation 4 is a console with DualShock 4 controller which is really special for their users. PS4 is developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment that is an eighth-generation home video game console. In February 2013, it was declared as the successor to the PS 3 and was launched in Japan on February 22, 2014. This was firstly launched in North America on November 15, 2013. The product family is PlayStation and the manufacturers are Sony and Foxconn.
This console keeps 8 GB GDDR5 memory and 256 MB DDR3 RAM and the operating system is only PS4 system software. The hard drive is 500 GB, 1TB, 2TB, and display is HDMI 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 4k for videos and pictures only. DualShock 4 and the PlayStation Move is the controller, and compatibility is PlayStation 2 emulation and PlayStation Now cloud-based emulation. PS 4 spaces an augmented emphasis on social integration and interaction with further services and devices, including the compatibility to play games off-console on supported devices and PlayStation Vita.
You have an ability to control gameplay remotely to stream gameplay online or to friends. The controller of this console was improved and redesigned over the PS3, with best analog sticks, buttons, and touchpad.
Hardware and Design
PlayStation 4 is a Sony’s most stunning designed piece of hardware that comes with a beautiful system, a sharp-angled profile accented by a light bar that acts as a status indicator. On the back, PlayStation 4 has gone digital only with HDMI and optical ports, and no audio or video analog outputs. We appreciate the power supply that sounds like a small thing, but it’s one less item to sit on the shelf next to or behind PS4.
The device is a collection of moderate to minor irritations, it doesn’t support the new 802.11 wireless standards, instead relying on an 802.11b/g/n radio at 2.4GHz no 5GHz support here either, all of that is disappointing to see on the consumer console in 2013. More annoyingly too many on operate, the PlayStation 4 does not include an IR port for universal remote, nor does it support Logitech’s PS3 Bluetooth Harmony adapter or PlayStation 3 Bluetooth Blu-ray remote. This omission seems to signal Sony’s desertion of the media aspirations that drove much of the PlayStation 3’s basic design. Gamers who want to game privately on their consoles might be temporarily irritated at the absence of Bluetooth headphone audio support for the PlayStation 4 at launch.

PS4 Online Play
PlayStation 4 introduces some fundamental enhancement to basic network functionality. With this, you can now join friends’ games from the friend’s list. The console also offers game-independent party chat for more than eight people, for multiplayer gamers hoping to avoid toxic public lobby audio.
The PlayStation 4’s home screen offers a feed of your friends’ activity known as What’s New and this proves quite a bit of potential. This shows what game your friend started to play when they’re live streaming and maybe too much stuff. The What’s New feed is a wall of detailed text and from a distance and it’s difficult to parse. It is indicative of a general tendency toward too numerous options, and an excess of surfaced details throughout the PlayStation 4’s PSN functions.
PlayStation 4 Store
Meanwhile, the PS Store is similar to the current PlayStation 3 store that has made enormous strides over the last few years. But this store shares the discoverability with organization problems of the existing store as well. It’s not good to crucify Sony over this, as every online store shares these issues to some degree or another.
Features and Capabilities
While Sony nixed plans to contain the PS Camera with the PlayStation 4 by default and it is still for sale and improves some options to the system. Sony has pushed the addition of voice commands to the PlayStation 4, though its limited time with this feature yielded mixed results.

PlayStation 4 Pro
PlayStation 4 Pro is Sony’s supercharged version of the PS4 Game Console. It is not a true next-gen machine in terms of hardware, features or horsepower, but a high-performance variant designed to dish out frame rates, 4K video, and high dynamic range.
The pro version of PS4 is released at the tail end of 2016 and established as Sony’s high-end gaming console, with an interactive and growing library of games that use extra graphical grunt. The only drawback for PlayStation 4 Pro is that it’s no longer the beefiest console on the block. Xbox One X has it beaten on raw CPU and graphics performance. The device has the power to run numerous games at native 4K resolutions, where the PlayStation 4 uses ingenious visual trickery in order to create something that closely resembles 4K.
