video. Ootori takes it apart piece-by-piece to show exactly what Sony's packing in its latest console.
One of the biggest changes you'll see from PS3 to PS4 is the integrated power adapter. This eliminates the need for a large mass on the outside of the console, making the design cleaner and more convenient.
Another huge change is the switch to an x86 CPU architecture. This is what's typically used in PCs, meaning that it will be much more developer-friendly than the PS3. While the PS3 touted the powerful the Cell Processor, it made life hard for game developers.
The video also shows a 500GB hard disk drive; 8GB of GDDR5 memory (eight on each side of the main processor for a total of 8GB); a secondary processor for network processing with low power consumption; two heat pipes for the heat sink; an 85-mm-diameter centrifugal fan, and ports for USB 3.0, Ethernet, HDMI, optical audio output and an AUX connector for the camera.
The PlayStation 4 is set to release November 15 in the U.S. and November 29 in Europe. It'll be priced at $399.
The PS4 will be competing with Microsoft's
this holiday season, which has a November 22 release date in the U.S. and is priced $100 higher than the PS4 at $499.
