Shared Game Experiences are central to the PS4 experience. For the first time ever on a console, gamers can seamlessly upload gameplay videos or capture an image of a triumphant moment with the push of a button. Simply press the “Share” button on the controller, browse through your last few minutes of gameplay, tag it and return to the game. The PS4 makes it easy for gamers to share their images and videos with friends on social networking sites, including Facebook.
Make games more social by broadcasting your in-game exploits real-time to friends using live internet services, e.g. Ustream. When you’re live broadcasting gameplay, friends will be able to comment on the streamed footage, or even offer to join you in the game in new and exciting ways. Players can also connect their Facebook to their PSN Network account to make sharing video and image content even easier.
Full integration of second screens such as the Playstation Vita, smartphones and tablets, enables gamers to enjoy their favourite content anytime, anywhere. Second Screen enables remote play by using the PS Vita, so you can enjoy PS4 on the move. Gamers will be able to seamlessly pull PS4 titles from their TV and play them on the PS Vita’s 5-inch display over Wi-Fi networks.
A Playstation App will also be available for transforming your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphones and tablets into a second screen. This version of Second Screen will offer new gameplay possibilities such as being able to view maps in an adventure game, purchasing PS4 download games while away from home, or watching other gamers playing PS4 games on their device.
Start playing and experiencing content instantaneously. PS4 drastically reduces the time it takes for users to access their content. Suspend mode is also another element that will enable gamers to get into the action. When users finish gaming they will be able to preserve their session and keep the system in a low power mode. Then next time the power button is pressed, play can resume at the exact point they reached. Digital titles will also be playable as they are being downloaded, so users can start playing instantly while the rest is downloaded in the background.
On the newly designed PS4 menu screen, gamers can view game-related information that friends have shared, watch friends’ gameplay, or discover recommended content including: games, films, TV series and more. The aim is that the system will eventually be able to predict which games you will be interested in purchasing, so the game is ready to play before you even press the buy button.
Sony have combined Playstation Network and Gaikai Inc’s cloud technology service, so in the future gamers will be able to immediately start playing an actual portion of a game that interests them, and not just a demo. With the unique possibilities that cloud technology poses, Sony will look to make Playstation libraries available, including over 3000 PS3 titles.
