Sony PlayStation 4

16 March 2014
  • Summary: It's quick, with little lag between scrolling through or switching between menus. You can even access most console settings without having to quit your game. The biggest caveat we spotted is that it's a bit disorganized, but this typically isn't a problem unless you download lots of games or other content.
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics, Powerful hardware, Competitively priced
  • Cons: No backward compatibility with PS3 games, Doesn't play audio CDs or MP3s, Dropped DLNA support

PlayStation 4 Console

Gaming Evolution
30 December 2013
  • Conclusion: I have spent an extensively long amount of time with this system and I will not hesitate in suggesting you take your 400 dollars and buy this console as soon as you can. Powerful as most gaming PCs, nice interface that isn’t too confusing. The ability to pair your Vita and play all titles and movies and music is an added bonus.

Sony PlayStation 4 Review

27 November 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s been 8 long years since the Xbox 360 launched in North America to kick-off the 7th generation of home consoles. Since 2005 we’ve seen the rise of smartphone technology, mobile gaming, social gaming, tablets, and even free-to-play gaming. All of these have been called at one time or another the death blow to traditional video games.

Sony PlayStation 4

26 November 2013
  • Conclusion: As we said in the beginning, seven years have passed since the PlayStation 3 came out. It will probably stay around for a few more years, but PlayStation 4 is here to take over. All eyes are now on Sony’s new console and Microsoft’s new Xbox One. We have witnessed how the PS3 and Xbox 360 have changed drastically over the years. New features have been introduced, TV apps have arrived, and games have become much better over the years.
  • Pros: Powerful hardware, Excellent PS4 controller, Amazing graphics & physics rendering, TV apps support, Multitasking, Price
  • Cons: Crippled media functionality, Power consumption, Few great games, Some user interface issues

Sony PlayStation 4 Review

19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Sony’s PlayStation 4: what most in the business call the actual coming of the next generation of gaming – somewhat not including the Wii U in there for some reason – is finally upon us. We now know everything that, up until this point, could have been argued to the nth degree as speculation. Some of us now have it in our hands and some of us are still waiting; some of us will be waiting for a while, some of us are already having technical issues with the systems we have.

Sony PlayStation 4 review

13 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Sony has the chance to do what few people or companies can do, and correct its errors of the past. The manufacturer learned its lessons with the PlayStation 3 they had the better hardware, but didn’t listen to gamers, then seemed genuinely perplexed why people didn’t flock to them or wait a full year after the Xbox 360 was released. With the PlayStation 4, Sony listened to its fans base, and continues to do so. There is an energy around the PlayStation 4.
  • Pros: Powerful hardware hasn’t even reached its full potential, Much-improved DualShock 4 controller, Multitasking allows background downloads, music over games and more, Sharing content is simple, Justifies owning a Vita
  • Cons: Many features still on the way, like Gaikai streaming games, Baffling lack of DLNA and MP3 support

Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4)

PC Magazine
21 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The first fully redesigned PlayStation in seven long years sports a fresh look, an all-new interface, some unique features, and a much more comfortable controller.
  • Pros: Attractive, compact design. DualShock 4 feels much better than the Sixaxis or DualShock 3 controllers before it. Great streaming support. Many new features.
  • Cons: Most features require a PlayStation Network connection. Non-free-to-play multiplayer requires a PS Plus subscription. DualShock 4 lightbar can't be turned off.
