Is the PS4 Reviews Really the Best Gaming Console?

Unlike most of the rhetoric and over inflated pre-game smack talk, the PS4 review appears to have delivered on its claims and is the most powerful console on the market. With some nicely equipped exclusive game titles, streaming access, and multiplayer capabilities, PlayStation enthusiast will most likely greet the newest arrival with open arms. A it stands today, the PS4 has made quite an entrance.

Performance: 5.0 / 5.0
Sony boasts that its new hardware allows it to perform ten times better than the latter PS3. This extra space helps when downloading movies and games from the PlayStation market. The HD graphics of the PS4 are stunning and the consoles responsiveness is presently unmatched.

Features: 5.0 / 5.0
The PS4 comes in the same half matte black and half gloss exterior as the Xbox One. Although the PS4 does not have backwards capabilities to play your PS3 titles, many of the games previously owned can be purchased for a considerable discount from their online store. The only catch - you will have to insert the older PS3 disc into the console while playing the online version.

Games purchased from the PlayStation Store are downloaded straight onto the hard drive and there's no need to worry about the disc being lost or scratched. The new PS4 Dual Shock 4 has seen some physical changes that cause it to stand out a bit from its earlier counterpart. Although the Dual Shock 4 can be purchased and used on the PS3, the older Dual Shock 3 controllers are not compatible with the PS4.
For those who already own a PS Vita, you can stream games from your PS4 over the Wi-Fi to the handheld unit. As far as music goes, both the Xbox and PS4 have their own channels. The PlayStation online gaming community has seen some great improvements to the interface and gameplay features. One handy feature of the PS4 is the iOS and Android app which allows users to connect to the PlayStation Store and purchase and download games while away from home. All in all, the PS4 still has a nice interaction and variety of features in the multimedia department, but lacks the depth experienced with the PS3. The PS4 weighs in $100 cheaper than the Xbox One, but even if you removed the Kinect component to drop the price of the Xbox, the PS4 is a much better value for the dollar. We felt this design error also present with the PS3 would have been addressed, but apparently not. The PS4 is a powerful gaming console that delivers gamers exactly what their looking for; a seamless HD gaming experience with full functionality and control.
