GPU: Next generation AMD Radeon GPU (performance wise in between the HD7850 and the HD7870).
The specs were released long ago mate ;)
I have a question:
Will Folding At Home return with the PS4?
Would be amazing to use the PS4 architecture for folding.
This probably only applies to few of us, but my question is ..... Will we still be limited to fat32 formatted USB HDD and Flash drives? Some of us aren't graced with a always working media serving networks you know :mad:.
woops DP sorry
2.We'll have to wait and see. The PSN already supports dedicated servers, so it's up to the developers. AFAIK Xbox One games will have dedicated servers only if the devs rent them from MS. I'll add #2 to the list
2. I hope so! Cut down on loading times especially with and SSD. You'll more than likely still need to have the disc inserted, though.
4. More than likely. All bluetooth devices besides DS3 should still work
5. Probably have to wait until launch for a teardown. Devs still under NDAs
I didn't put your third question in the OP as it dealt more with games, perhaps I should start a ps4 games: ask a question thread? Yeah I think I'll go do that...
Cool. I wasnt sure if cod makers were paying for servers or MS done it for the sake of X1 players. Hope Sony matches it.
I remember my 3rd question.
any info on how sony will get playstation users better internet with virgin/oramge etc like they said at gamescon presentation?
My brother was like we dont have more than 20mb lines in our area, how are they gonna give us more or even make sure its constant access/ no limits or rush hour traffic slowing down speeds. This was great news though
What does the broadband partnership with Virgin Media mean in practical terms for consumers?
"There's plenty more to be fleshed out on it, but I think the core principles underlining it are that we're better together, the experience will be better using high end broadband services, of which Virgin is undoubtedly one of the key providers in that space.
"I think it's a good brand match, and it's all about the gameplay experience. What Jim [Ryan] said last night is we're talking about preserving chunks of their bandwidth for gameplay and putting that as high priority traffic, which is about reducing latency and improving that speed of response in multiplayer, and also the speed of the download for digital games, because while downloading console games is very viable today, they're still big files.
"The PS4 takes that agenda forward significantly in two ways. First of all, the partnerships will help, but secondly, you don't need the complete file to start the gameplay experience. Play as you download is a very exciting development.
"So you can see together how we create a new digital infrastructure for the future. Where we start and where it may grow as a partnership will be interesting, but there're the guiding principles to get us going."
Hopefully it might mean something like cheaper fibre packages, or perhaps a lifting of Virgin’s bewilderingly complex traffic shaping schemes for PS4 owners, enabling them to buy and download digital copies of PS4 games without crashing into throttling limits.
mini E thanks for answer our question i have another one sorry lolz.
as i plugged back in my xbox i had realized we were able to play music in game. will the ps4 be able to do that? i would to have that option.
Can keyboards be used? Any wireless ones? So much easier to message and browse on it. Thanks
Sorry don't have time to go through this thread so if its been asked I apologize.
The new controller...it looks like it has a speaker...is it confirmed its only a speaker and not a mic??? If it is a mic....since the controller supports blutooth could it be used the same was as X1 kinect does to turn on your console....if it heard...."PS4 on"....just wondering....I personally could care less but if it could communicate that way say by saying PS4 on...or PS4 browser...or PSN..and do those things...would that tick off some people over at Redmond? I really don't need or want that...but just asking a question to see if anyone knows all the tech inside the controller.
All of the answered questions are in the OP, which I update regularly.
Yes as was said it's just a speaker. Sony haven't specifically talked about voice control, but it's possible with virtually any microphone so if they really wanted to it wouldn't be too hard to implement. It's not any revolutionary technology. The big stink about the kinect 2.0 voice control is cancelling background noise. The playstation 4 camera has 4 microphones so the tech is there for noise cancellation and sound origination, we just haven't seen it demonstrated as of yet.
And keyboards are almost a guarantee. The ps3 supported all usb and bluetooth keyboards.
Yes as was said you can play music in the background as was confirmed at gamescom.
You're welcome that's the point of the thread :)
I have another question :)
Will Planetside 2 be cross platform? I have a lot of friends on another forum, who only game on PC, and I'd love to play some games with them :)
Anyhow, here: Source.
Do you guys think Sony are going to make us sign up for their Music Unlimited service to get custom in-game music?
It's already been confirmed the PS4 does not support CD'sso we won't be ripping our own tracks to the HDD, and at GC they announced they'd expanded Music Unlimited functionality so that it worked in the background and would play as background music whilst gaming.
