The Internet is abuzz with rumors that the long-awaited Playstation 4 will finally be unveiled on February 20 -- a little more than two weeks from now. The announcement is expected to come months before the new Xbox console is unveiled, giving the Playstation the lead that Xbox had when it released the 360 ahead of the Playstation 3.
Though few details have been released about the new Playstation 4, rumors are already circulating. Here are just 4 reasons why you should be excited about the Playstation 4:
Faster Processing Speed
Rumors are inconclusive about the type of processing power and memory the CPU will have, but some accounts have suggested the new system will have as much as twice the power and speed of the Playstation 3. Already, the Playstation has a reputation for excellence and has gained respect as a media center that can do much more than just play games. We fully expect Sony to build on this reputation by introducing a console with even more power and more processing speed.
More Intense Graphics
Many of the games in the Playstation 3 catalogue have gorgeous graphics that sometimes seem very real. As technology has continued to advance and more gains have been made in the fields of CGI and game technology, we fully expect the graphics on the Playstation 4 to be larger-than-life. We can't wait to be amazed by the stunning graphics that we fully expect to be a part of the Playstation 4.
New game titles accompany the release of every new gaming system, and we can't wait to see what amazing games will be released with the Playstation 4. Whether we get new games in an established series, or we get entirely new titles, we know they will be sure to push artistic boundaries and create new and amazing game play experiences.
There has been a lot of speculation about the design that the new Playstation 4 will have, especially the design of its controller. Some reports have suggested that the new controller will feature a similar design to the Playstation 3 and will have many of the same abilities, such as motion sensing. However, the new controller is expected to have tilt correction and vibration. Some have also speculated that it may add biometric technology like what is featured on the Kinect or the Wii.
We'll definitely be waiting anxiously over the next couple of weeks to learn more details about the expected release. The Playstation 3 has been one of the most-loved consoles and has a well-deserved reputation for excellence. We can't wait to see how Sony will top itself with the Playstation 4.
