Sony is releasing a "Glacier White" version of the new-look, slimline 500GB Playstation 4, launching in Australia on 25 January.
But remember, kids. When you buy a white console, you're really just pre-ordering a yellow one.
Whether you've just unwrapped a brand new PS4 or you've had one since launch day in November 2013, you probably haven't explored everything Sony's powerhouse console has to offer — no doubt you've been too busy gaming. Join us on a tour of 10 of our favourite PS4 tips, from upgrading its internals to streaming games to your laptop.
Razer has built a "tournament-grade' controller for the PlayStation 4 — with supposedly better ergonomics than your common or garden DualShock, as well as a bunch of customisable settings and esports-friendly extras. And, y'know, it looks suspiciously like someone chucked an Xbox One controller and a PS4 controller into Photoshop and mucked around with the transparency.
There's a moment playing Infamous First Light, as the heroine made of light climbs up a wall in pitch black darkness, that I fully appreciate the hype around the PS4 Pro. The woman is a multicolored bundle of light particles and thanks to HDR, I can make out each particle and note the way they each cast their own vibrant glow on on the red brick wall. Normally, she'd be a big blob of light, but high dynamic range gives you details in moments of extreme brightness and extreme darkness. I'm watching the next big step in video games, and it is extraordinary.
After months of speculation, rumours, and some excellent reporting, Sony's latest Playstations are finally here. Sony announced the new consoles at a press event in the Playstation Theatre in New York City today. Hosting a major tech event the same day as Apple day seems like a risky move, but Sony's event was packed with journalists eager for a break from the House of Cook and a visit to the House of Nathan Drake.
Last week, the existence of what appeared to be a smaller, redesigned PlayStation 4 console leaked out into the world. Despite no comments from Sony and the disappearance of video documentation, people know it's out there. Thanks to this totally unauthorised advance review, they know how it performs.
The Playstation 4 is getting a facelift. Sony will reveal a new slimmer version of the PS4 next month, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The new console, unofficially dubbed the PS4 Slim, will have the same exact specifications as the original PS4 but with a new thinner design. It will compete directly with the Xbox One S. According to one analyst cited by the WSJ, the new slim model will also be sold at a cheaper price.
Sony unleashed the latest major software update for the PS4 on the world last night, and with it came Remote Play on PC and Mac. The idea is pretty attractive, especially for those with families or large sharehouses where there's a high possibility of the TV being in use. I've toyed around with Remote Play across a variety of games for a number of hours. And it's pretty impressive so far — with a few caveats.
Sony is reportedly working on a version of its PS4 games console– but it isn’t the PS5. According to our mates over at Kotaku UK, an in-development console currently known as the PlayStation 4.5 could be set to follow the PS4 — or potentially even augment it in the form of an upgradeable component. It’s said to offer 4K gaming capabilities, increased graphical power, and plenty more.
