      Product information
      The Sony PlayStation 4 will blow the doors off your gaming world, its ultra-powerful processors and dazzlingly inventive design delivering bigger, faster and more innovative gaming on all levels.

      Power play

      Created by the most progressive video gaming minds, the ground-breaking PS4 offers the scope for thrilling, cutting-edge games and never-seen-before experiences. Combining super-fast processor with jaw-dropping graphics and a massive 8 GB of DDR5 system memory, the console is simply more than you've ever imagined.

      Intelligent and personalised, the new PlayStation 4 also offers deeply integrated social capabilities and progressive second-screen features.

      It links fluidly with the PlayStation network using Cloud technology for an amazingly expansive and immersive gaming network that is gamer-centric, allowing you to play when, where and how you want.

      Packs some serious hardware

      Displaying advanced development techniques in its easy usability, the Sony PS4 is centred on a powerful custom chip holding eight x86-64 cores and a high-tech graphics processor.

      This graphics unit has been enhanced for smoother, more natural physics simulation and richer, higher-quality graphics than have previously been possible – it all adds up to action that literally envelops you.

      The coolest controller

      Included with the Sony PlayStation 4 console is the radical DualShock 4 controller, which gives you complete control and lets you interact with your games in both familiar and unexpected ways.

      Its dual analogue sticks and improved button offer enhanced precision, plus there are integrated motion sensors, touch controls and the innovative ‘Share' button. Use the built-in mono speaker and headset jack to enjoy detailed, high-fidelity sounds through the controller and online chats with friends using a headset.

      The action takes on a new intensity with enhanced vibration motors, and the new shape provides enhanced comfort. Using the Touch Pad on the front of the controller, you'll experience a freer way to play.

      The Light Bar offers four colour LEDs for a simple way to identify players and quickly view important game information such as damage reports.

      Enjoy the versatility of a second screen

      You'll be able to integrate second screens with your PS4 to stay involved with your favourite content wherever you are. Using Remote Play, the console can be synched with PlayStation Vita handsets, smartphones and tablets.

      The feature sees its exciting potential realised as the PS Vita becomes the ultimate companion device, allowing you to seamlessly take PS4 games from your home TV over WiFi to play naturally with the portable 5” display and dual analogue sticks.

      The PlayStation App lets you use your iPhone, iPad or Android device as a second screen – see maps on the screen while playing an RPG, buy PS4 games while you're out to download direct to your home console, or even watch other gamers at play remotely.

      A more social gaming experience

      Central to the PlayStation 4 is social interaction, with new features included in the console's architecture. At the touch of the ‘Share' button on the controller you'll be able to share heroic triumphs, scan and tag the last few minutes of play, and then get back to the action.

      Dedicated video compression and decompression systems work to seamlessly upload videos of your gaming exploits, which can be shared with friends on social networks such as Facebook. Connect your Facebook and Sony Entertainment Network accounts to deepen connections through co-operative play or cross-game chat.

      Broadcast live gameplay in real time via streaming services like Ustream, letting friends make comments or even join in by offering health potions, special weapons and more at crucial moments.

      Tailored, curated content

      On the new PS4 menu screen, you'll be able to look over game-related information shared by friends, view their gameplay or obtain information of recommended content with ease, including games, TV shows and movies.

      Intelligently learning your preferences, the console will predict the next game you may purchase, so that the game can be loaded and ready to go before you even click the “buy” button.

      No more waiting around

      With the Sony PlayStation 4 you'll enjoy drastically reduced lag time between you and your content. Suspend Mode keeps the system in a low power state while maintaining the game session for extremely fast console boot-up and load times.

      Hit the power button again and return promptly to the same point in the game you left off. You'll also be able to boot a range of applications whilst playing a game, including a web browser.

      PlayGo lets you get started on your game while the full title downloads – you can update games while playing using Background Download, leaving you to focus on the action and not worry about protracted download times getting in the way of your progress.

      A complete range of connections

      Kick back with a movie when you're not fragging enemies thanks to support for Blu-ray discs and DVDs. There's also HDMI support, an analogue AV output and an optical digital input for total connective flexibility.

      Get ready for a totally new way to play games, download content and enjoy yourself at home or on the move with the 500 GB Sony PlayStation 4 and its radical graphics, usability and connectivity features.

      Great quality product that manages to get over the high bar set by the PS3. Has given us hours upon hours of quality entertainment. Really hope that more exclusive content is released soon.
      Aside from a handful of good titles, the console is in need of a greater variety of exclusive content. The media player is good, but could cater for more file formats. The interface, while decent - could be better.
