As the social networks reached a lot of people lately, Sony decided to integrate a 'Share' button in the DualShock 4 controller and a new meniu called just like that for all your sharing needs. I already start to see people spamming with their highscores.

The Playstation 4 will be released somewhere at the end of the year. No certain date has been yet revealed but it will be of course, around Christmas.

Other details released at the conference hold by Sony last night are that there is a planned backward compatibility with older platformes (PS1, PS2 and in a few months PS3) by cloud streaming the games. It will support Blu-ray discs and will have a CPU from AMD called "Jaguar" with 8 cores. Hard drive was not announced yet, a memory of 8GB GDDR5 and a custom AMD Radeon Graphic Processing Unit.

Some developers already announced that they are working on releasing games for Playstation 4. Here is a list of games that will be ready just in time for the release of the next console from Sony:

Deep Down, Destiny, Diablo III, Driveclub, Final Fantasy, Infamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Watch Dogs and The Witness

  • Can't wait! It is supposed to come out in November (speculated date) and will probably cost around $400-$500(?). I'll get it the day it comes out and I'll review it here!
