News: Check out what is under the hood for Sony’s PS4, Dualshock 4 controller and PlayStation Camera.



Battlefield 4 exclusive content on Xbox One

The PS4 hardware was revealed during Sony’s press conference at E3, finally giving us a glimpse at Sony’s new hardware. The internal design architecture of the PS4 system, from the optical drive and power supply unit to the cooling mechanism, has been developed to keep the the body as slim and light as possible to dramatically enhance the flexibility of the design.

The surface of the PS4 body is subdivided into four sections, as if four blocks are stacked together making one figure, with disc slot, buttons, power indicator and vent placed within the slim interspace created by the sections. The power indicator designed atop the body will glow in a PlayStation blue color when the power button is turned on. The foreside and backside of the body is slightly angled; it not only gives users easy access to the power button and disc slot when placed either horizontally or vertically but also helps conceal the connected cables. The black-themed color along with the matte and gloss finish adds a sophisticated look to the PS4 system as the next generation entertainment system and will fit perfectly wherever it is placed.

PS4 peripherals include the stand-alone wireless Dualshock 4 and PlayStation Camera which will be available at launch for US $59, Canada $59, €59 and £54, and US$ 59, Canada$ 59, €49 and £44 respectively.
