Within its sleek and compact shell lies a 500GB hard drive, full 1080p HD capability, superior speed and graphics, and an internal power supply to save you space. The PS4 also delivers amazing online experiences, and the best choice of blockbuster and indie games in the market.

With five-star reviews across the board from the likes of Stuff magazine, a People's Choice Award from IGN readers, and T3's Gadget of the Year Award, the PS4 truly is the best place to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Upgrade 8 Mar. 2015
By Arch Stanton TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Edition:Standard Black|Verified Purchase
I love the PS3. There, I've said it. It was very hard for me to get used to the idea of replacing it. Which is why although it offers improvements in several key areas I don't think the PS4 is quite as good as the PS3. In many ways the two systems are nearly identical. Controls, Settings, the PSN are all still here in only slightly different forms. The interface has been changed from a row of different options to two rows with one controlling settings/extra features and the other containing the games and apps. Instead of only displaying the game in the slot you now install everything like an app, which can make it confusing when you're not sure what disc is in the machine. This system makes it easier to find the most recently played game but gives fewer options for organization. I preferred the old system with its neat rows but this one is perfectly functional.

On a technical level the PS4 is a marked improvement over the PS3. Games run much smoother and don't suffer from long loading times. The games that have come out so far seem to make good use of the system's capabilities and larger save files by, for example, keeping track of your character interactions and making the NPCs carry a grudge. It's an interesting and engrossing idea that really helps with immersion. A nice feature is that now the system can multitask. While playing your game you can pause it and go out to the main menu to check on downloads or settings and then go back to your game without losing your place.

Some of the other changes are less interesting. The social gaming idea is something that Sony has worked very hard to incorporate into the basic design of the PS4 but apart from game reviewers I'm not sure how much use people will make of the ability to record gameplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rather more technical review for the PS4 18 Jan. 2015
Edition:Standard Black|Verified Purchase
For starters I noticed many other amazon reviewers have been promoting the PS4. However after reading several I also noticed that the people are not getting the full picture of what exactly they're buying.
I created this review in order to provide an in-depth technical review since i noticed the other reviewers haven't done so.
I suggest reading this review if you want to know EXACTLY what you're buying.

For your information, I have been a long time PC and Console gamer. I personally don't have a preference of the 2. However I specialise in PC Hardware and thought it was extremely interesting that consoles have now moved to more computer like hardware.

Note: If you're a non-technical person i advise trying to understand the information provided. If you can't understand it at all, then I would then suggest skipping it.
Let me just say the hardware provided inside the PS4 is some what similar to a PC worth £400+ or so and you're receiving excellent for value for performance.

*Processor & Graphics*
The PS4 has a Custom APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) created by AMD featuring the "Jaguar" architecture.

For people who don't know what an APU is, its a CPU (Central Processing Unit) and a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) combined.
The Jaguar architecture was designed for notebooks, mini pcs and micro-servers offering low power consumption. It was created in Mid 2013. It is the successor of the older generation architecture "Bobcat". All the Jaguar based CPUs only offered up to quad cores before the announcement of the PS4.

4.0 out of 5 stars PS4 is for Gamers 29 Nov. 2013
By I. Sato
Edition:Standard Black|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Be wary of fake reviews, listen to "Amazon Verified Purchases" and "Top 500 Reviewers"

To start I'd like to say how sad it is for me to see people bombing the product page of these consoles with fake 1/5 stars AND fake 5/5 stars. The human mind is a curious thing and for some people the success of the console they chose is, for some inexplicable reason, linked to their perception of their own self worth. They are so focused on this that they throw their allegiance in with huge multinational companies whose main goals are to, at the end of the day, make money - instead of throwing their allegiance in with other consumers/gamers.

To those people - shame on you.

As for the PS4, I will be brief and concise as the review by MrE is already a great read (go check it out).

1) The PS4 is small and light - surprisingly so for a "next-gen" console, especially next to the, comparatively, gargantuan Xbox One (yes I have one of those too). Both run relatively quite and cool, which is reassuring after the Xbox360s overheating issues last gen.

2) The PS4's shape looks nice but can make changing wires at the back difficult if it is already in place and you are viewing it from a top-down view. The two tone is pleasing enough and the blue light is... a blue light, also pleasing enough.

3) The PS4 includes the following ports: Ethernet, HDMI out, PlayStation camera port (proprietary), 2x USB 3.0 ports and a optical audio out. For those concerned this optical audio out port does output in surround sound (unlike the XB1, although Microsoft has said they will patch this in).

4) 3rd party headsets are supported, via USB, optical out or even through the 3.5mm jack in the controller itself (which is very cool).
