    Sony preview PlayStation 4



    Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 at a New York event on Wednesday. The new system features an array of new specifications and social enhancements.

    As a side note, since PS4 will be using a new chip and architecture (x86 based rather than Power-PC-based PS3), it will not be backward compatible with PS3 games. But company has said that it will try to make titles playable "in some form."

    Here's the rundown:

    The Console: The PlayStation 4 will be powered by A "supercharged" x86 processor chip, a PC-style graphics processor, and eight gigabytes of RAM.

    Social integration: The PS4's controller features a share button. When pressing it, users can share clips of the last few minutes of their game play and even broadcast real-time gameplay to friends. It also features social networking integration and personalized recommendations for downloading games and media.

    The Controller:PS4 controller didn't get too much of a makeover, but it packs a few new tricks. The new DualShock 4 controller sports a touchpad placed smack in the middle. Along the bottom is a 3.5mm headphone jack for connecting a headset.

    Games:Sony already has a couple of big titles lined up. Developers showed off first-person shooter game "Killzone: Shadow Fall," team-based online racing game "Driveclub," and "The Witness," a puzzle solving game.

    Sony said every major third-party partner is on board with the PS4, including 185 different studios.

    The Camera: The PS4 features a built-in camera for 3D tracking and motion control, similar to the Microsoft Xbox's Kinect attachment.

    The Release: Sony didn't say what the price would be, and it hasn't given a firm release date aside from "the holiday shopping season." In other words, expect the PS4 sometime around November.

    This thing may be doomed from the start.

    Meh. In the countries that are weird about this, they can just market it by its working name Orbis.
