Sony released a new video detailing some the features for the new PS4 Interface. With all the games shown, online requirements and used game DRM talked about, honestly this is what I am looking forward to most on the PS4. Sony seems to have learned from the past 6 years with the PS3 and built a better ecosystem for the PS4. The video shows of some great features such as notification for what trophies your friends have earned, recording and sharing videos, cross game chat, being able to download single and multiplier portions of a game separately and more. The best part is that all these features are possible without having to interrupt your game.
Look forward to the PS4 launching sometime is Holiday.
Microsoft may have had their worse E3 due to the fact that their online requirements and used game DRM completely overshadowed their best press conference in years. However, we forget that there are a ton of games coming to the system. Not just games, but exclusive games and they all look promising. If we are willing to look past the Xbox One’s anti-consumer policies for a second, there are a lot of reasons for gamers to be excited for what the system has to offer. Killer Instinct, TitanFall, Crimson Dragon, Ryse, Sunset Overdrive and much more where shown this year.
Here are the games Microsoft had to show this year.
It seems in the excitement of used game and no DRM announcement, Sony also announce you need to pay to play online. More on this later.
Update: Confirmed by IGN, Playstation Plus Subscription will be needed to play PS4 Games Online.
Feel to trade, sell and lend your games to friends. Ps4 does not restrict used games. Also there is no online DRM that prevents games from being played after a certain amount of time. Way to go Sony.
