I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • Hammersteyn

    I see a lot of apps will be launched with the PS4 like Netflix but probably not here? I know it’s possible to use Netflix it’s just a hassle setting it up.

  • Macethy

    Do you have to buy the Eye accessory?

    • Uberutang

      Optional extra.

      • Ultimo_Cleric N7

        At least you can choose whether to have this one on or not….

      • Lardus

        Love that it is OPTIONAL!!

      • CaptainNemo42

        Great! So you can buy it later if you want to, or it’s on special.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    My body is ready!

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Hopefully, our shores will see enough stock…. 😀

  • Airborne

    Almost 7, 000 bucks… minus the Eye Toy… hmmmm…
    okay 🙂

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Depending on our exchange rates, it might be wiser to wait a bit and get the console post-launch. I have enough saved up, but I might wait a few months, just to make sure that all the launch issues have been dealt with.

    • Uberutang

      Remember the 399 includes a controller also. So 399 + a game and you can play. (or 399 + 50 for plus and 2 free games per month + drive club)

      • Airborne

        Good points… and lets factor in that the games will be 700 bucks each… and you need two games atleast…

        • Uberutang

          Warframe + War thunder is f2p and will be on ps4.

    • Uberutang

      349 pounds.

  • matthurstrsa

    How many controllers does it come with? I’m guessing 1, just like this gen?

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      If the PS3’s anything to go by… one?

      • Andre116

        I remember picking up my 360 a couple of months after launch with a bundled game and an extra controller (for 2 in total) at the same price as what it costed at launch.

        • Rinceyouropinion

          Yeah, I don’t see the SONY price coming down anytime soon. Not if they are this cheap at launch. In fact, SONY have only just started making profits on the sale of the PS3.

      • matthurstrsa

        You know what would be sneaky? Bundle it with… none! Then you have the good press from your massive $100 price difference, but what people don’t know is they have to fork out half that to get a controller. But they must bundle one with it. Surely?

    • HvR

      from the spec sheet, the following will be included in the standard box:

      Included PlayStation®4 system × 1
      Wireless Controller (DUALSHOCK®4) × 1
      Mono headset × 1
      AC power cord × 1
      HDMI cable × 1
      USB cable × 1

      • matthurstrsa

        Thanks man! Was too lazy to do my own research. Shame on me!

  • Admiral Chief Commander


  • RichardC

    Bit of a typo at the CPU there. Think you got the 1.84 confused with the GPU’s teraflops, pretty sure its a 3.2 Ghz or 3.6 Ghz CPU.

    • Roo_ZA

      Nope, that’s what these two new consoles run at.

      • Melasco

        I agree, will be 1.6 – 2Ghz, but I still don’t see that anywhere? Where’s the 1.8Ghz from or was it a typo?

        • Roo_ZA

          Well I guess it’s mostly educated guessing, based on what the specs for the AMD chips.

        • HvR

          AMD specs for Jaguar cores are up to 1.85GHz, remember Jaguar is AMD’s new low power series and the higher the frequency you run at the more power and excess heat you consume/produce.

          They up the “processing power” these days by using smaller transistors (28nm for the Jaguar) and then fitting more cores, more low level caches and bigger data pipelines on the silicone.

          Also the Jaguar series in SoC (system on chip) the CPU and GPU (Radeon HD8000 core) is situated on the same silicone, the GPU is also more powerful than the CPU and does all the hard grunt work, graphics, physics (or anything other beefy task).

  • Melasco

    I have 2 unanswered PS4 questions I’m curious about:

    1) This question is irrelevant for comparison purposes, I know, but just wondering, what is the CPU clocked at? Must me 1.6 – 2.0 Ghz imo, but does anyone actually know?

    2) How much of the PS4’s 8Gb RAM is actually available to games? Most rumors suggest the OS only uses 1Gb, so 7Gb is available, but still rumors. Look, even the 5Gb available to games on XBOX One is a crapload in console terms, but I’m just curious because this may affect the lifespan of the console.

    These are simple questions… I wonder why they are still unanswered…
