While the dual shock 4 does look similar to the prototype (admittedly this did disappoint me at first), do not let this stop you!

The all important features:

Share: As rightfully predicted by many, the PS4 features a ‘share’ button in which they can select some gameplay footage to share with friends and bring together the social experience. Not only this but players can also help out other players who may be stuck in a certain part of the game. Personally I love this aspect of having people who are able to help me when I am stuck in a game, and how other players worldwide can help. This is definitely what sold it for me!  Think ‘Onlive’.

Enhanced PC GPU

8GB UNIFIED MEMORY- this is a huge upgrade! Developers can now load larger levels and more textures

Touch screen

Blue bar

Hello Share and Options, Goodbye Start and Select – The Start and Select buttons which have been around consoles for 24 years are now being replaced making way for new buttons – ‘Share’ and ‘Options’.  This shows a change not only in media but also society.

The new PS4 seems to fit perfectly with the not so new PS Vita,
maybe this is a reason why they went cheaper before the soon to be popular demand.
