PS4 Game Reviews

Welcome to the Gaming Illustrated hub for PS4 Game Reviews. Development for the PS4 began in 2008 with Mark Cerny as the system’s lead architect. Sony officially unveiled the PS4 on February 24, 2013 at an event in New York City. On November 15, 2013 the PS4 was released in North America followed by a November 29 release for Europe, Australia and Latin America. A release in Asian territories occurred in December of 2013 with a Japan release of February 22, 2014.

The PS4 retails for $399 (€399/£349/¥38,980). Instead of using the PS3’s complex Cell architecture, the PS4 uses an AMD processor, a CPU of two x86-64 quad cores and 8 GB of GDDR5 memory. A Blu-ray optical drive is used for disc-based games but is not compatible with PS3 discs. Each system includes a 500GB hard drive, a DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller, a micro-USB cable, a Mono-headset (for use with voice chat), a power cable, and an HDMI cable. The DUALSHOCK 4 controller is a variation of previous PlayStation controllers. It features a touch pad, new analog sticks, a headset jack, a lightbar, a speaker, plus the all new Share button which is used for several social features. A PlayStation Camera can also be connected to the PS4 for use in streaming and during certain games.

A PlayStation Plus subscription service is required to use online play in select games but will also allow gamers access to the “Instant Games Collection” which is a monthly service that grants free games on the PlayStation Network every week. With the Share button, gamers are able to record and broadcast their sessions and upload them to many social networking sites. Players can use the PlayStation Vita to Remote Play almost all PS4 titles, expanding the console’s reach. In the future, the PS4 will also incorporate Gaikai, a cloud-based gaming service which will bring in titles across the entire PlayStation library.
