The PlayStation 4 has finally been announced, so we have decided to break down what is known about the console thus far.
The DualShock 4
Tightly Integrated Social Interaction
What does this mean for the PlayStation Vita?
A feature that Sony announced that isn't too surprising is the ability to use the Vita as a second screen via remote play. It sounded somewhat similar to the Nintendo Wii U, but unfortunately there has yet to be any gameplay showing off this feature. This could be huge for the Vita, as it has struggled with sales over the past year. This might give consumers another reason to finally pick one up.
Gaikai and Streaming Games
Gaikai was bought out by Sony last year for $380 million dollars. Finally, we will get to experience the full potential of cloud gaming on a console. Not only will Gaikai be used to help implement to social features of the PlayStation 4, but it might also pave the way for backwards compatibility between the PS4, PS3, and earlier versions of the PlayStation I'm sure many of you are aware of the rumors that the PlayStation will not be backwards compatible with PlayStation 3 games, but Gaikai may make this a non-issue.
