U.S. media: so much untapped potential in PS4




Several U.S. media have in their first reviews on the PlayStation 4 moderately positive views about the new console from Sony Computer Entertainment. The media praise the design and the controller, but also give too little to with the console.

Although the PlayStation 4 will appear in Europe until November 29, American gamers can already from Friday to work with the new Sony console. Reviewers of U.S. media have already had the opportunity to take the console more extensive. Progress Most of the media seems to be present or to have been an event organized by Sony review, though it seems especially the extensive review of Polygon to betray that site for some time on the console features.

Polygon explains in his review focusing on the many opportunities that the PlayStation 4 provides that still nothing is done. The website praises the enormous potential of the machine, but keep it at a modest judgment because too little is done with that potential. So Polygon sees opportunities in remote play feature of the PlayStation Vita and the additional opportunities that the PlayStation and PlayStation Camera App offer. Simultaneously, the website notes that very little software that uses these opportunities.

On the device itself has Polygon virtually nothing but praise. The console is praised for its stylish looks and also the new Dual Shock controller 4 receives rave reviews. Well Polygon notes that the PS4 the 802.11ac wireless standard does not support, but only 802.11 / / b / g / n standard at 2.4 GHz, which is disappointing Polygon in a device in the year 2013. On the supply of launch games Polygon is short: there are mainly little. The really new games are limited to Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack and some downloadable games, while the multiplatform games by Polygon not much better on the PS4 console that users would have to buy.

Kotaku , indicating not ready to be a final judgment, joins Polygon. The site considers that there is no question the lack of new games a must-have console. Nevertheless, the website mainly positive about the PlayStation 4. Kotaku compliments Sony with the modest dimensions of the device and notes that the console thus easy to carry is: much harder than carrying a heavy laptop is not according to Kotaku.

As Joystiq Kotaku then pays attention to the new PlayStation Network features. Both websites emphasize how easy it is to get your ‘game experience’ by sharing your games to stream. Via Twitch live with others It is the reviewers that while Sony has never said that a PlayStation 4 must always be online, the added value of the PlayStation Network is so great that online gamers probably will continue to be by themselves.

All reviewers also look at the way software is installed and other games on the PlayStation 4. It is easier and faster than the PlayStation 3. Especially that games can be if only one percent of the game is installed on the hard disk, is seen as an advantage. Already started Although this paper has a hard drive capacity of 500GB, several reviewers note that not the full size of the disk available to the user. Various games also require a lot of space, four games from the initial line-up taking more than 30GB on the hard drive of the console.

Although all reviewers some points of criticism in their review have included are, for some preliminary conclusions fairly clear: the PlayStation 4 is a stylish and powerful device with a good controller and many interesting features, but still has too few titles that do justice that total package. Nevertheless, the console will in all respects for a big step forward compared to the PlayStation 3, and there is every reason to believe that gamers with the PlayStation 4 will be able to again. Years ahead
