    What are your top 3 favorite new features of PS4?

    So the features of PS4 are $#@!ing epic imho and this is only just a glimpse of what will be offered. What are your 3 favorite features revealed last night?

    1) Spectate - This brings a whole new meaning to the idea of a gaming community. That my friends can watch me as I accomplish something badass in game, or that I can actually control their game or send messages really removes all the barriers between me and my gaming friends and this is an amazing innovation.

    2) Sleep mode - I love this about my Vita. I can hit the switch and straight away I'm playing Persona 4, no loading, nothing, just immediate action. The fact that this is now a console feature is so cool.

    3) Uploading gameplay footage - Screenshots? Pffft.

    1: Background downloading whilst you play.
    2: Suspend/Resume
    3: Spectate

    I like a lot of what I heard but off the top of my head from what I remember those three things interested me.

    For me, being able to spectate my friends games and actually taking over for them is awesome.

    Spectating is definitely number one . Who wouldn't like this?

    i also like how they will now allow you to play a game and try it out before having to buy it.

    Sleep mode sounds pretty beneficial as well. I like that feature.

    Sleep/Resume is pretty great, and I can't wait to test out the spectator and broadcast function, those both look awesome! I am also amped on that controller, seeing it from all sides and being cleaned up from the previous prototype it looks much more impressive! I have a feeling this one is going to feel much better in our hands looking at the controller, and I think the touch sensitive area will be a welcome addition! As for the removal of the select/start buttons...good riddance!

    I'm excited about all the features of this system. I can't just say 3 of them because so far all of the features are excellent.

    If it was to pick 3...

    Spectating
    Share feature
    sleep mode feature

    1) Stream any game to try it before you buy it.

    2) Play a game while it is downloading.

    3) Spectating

    Background downloading/playing while downloading - No more waiting around to play! Which is pretty damn nice.

    Full Facebook integration - TBH, I don't know which of my friends own a PS3 and which don't and I only have a couple on my friends list. If I can use this function which will have the PS4 scan my Facebook friends list and automatically add everyone on it who own a PlayStation to my PSN friends list. That would be awesome !!

    THE GAMES - Of course the games !! So much potential, and what you saw last night were launch or near launch titles..can you imagine what we'll be seeing down the line.
    Trophy-licious!

    Suspend/Resume and background downloading of patches etc we're the only two OS features I cared for.
    Other opinions are available.

    -Simultaneous play while downloading
    -suspend/resume
    -spectate mode

    But its definitely hard to just pick 3. Looks like sampling games off the cloud before purchasing will be cool. Seems like we're getting party chat features. And the fact that the store will learn which games you like and potentially download games to me while I'm at work so I can play them when I get home is pretty neat too.

    Suspent/resume is a #gamechanger for me. It's been on portable devices for the longest time and it just makes sense to have it on home consoles - but still, it's very welcome.

    Everything that the Share button can do. At the end of the KZ demo they uploaded directly to Facebook which was cool as $#@!. Spectator mode is cool especially if it's just open and very easy to navigate towards. On OnLive it's brilliant, you just go into spectate and you see a bunch of window panes on the screen of people playing games, real time. You can choose whichever one you want to go into fullscreen

    Playing while downloading a game is also amazing

    Everything comes across as seamless

    It's too early to make any judgements, but so far I am liking the ability to record/screenshot your gameplay. I am not the best player in the world, but I always wanted to share them online. I wonder if you can put them on Youtube. I also like the sleep mode idea; no more waiting forever for the game to load.

    Even though I loved everything from the event, my top three favorite features would have to be: 1. Recording my gameplay and sharing it with friends. 2. The ability to play games as you download them. 3. Livestreaming!

    I think the spectate mode (especially if it is free) will be a huge hit, that is one thing that always intrigued me about the Onlive service...

    While I like everything too, mostly I like the developer friendly hardware specs.
    • Robust but coder friendly APU
    • LOTS of ram, and fast ram
    • And okay, dig the heck out of being able to play games I might not be sure about thanks to GAIKAI/PSN Store

    One more: linking to all my wireless toys, hopefully PC too. It would be convenient to grab GT5 images directly, rather than having to save them to a USB drive, for instance.
