PlayStation 4: Your Hub For PlayStation’s Next Generation
The PlayStation 4 represents Sony’s next throw of the dice for its iconic PlayStation brand and, as befits such an important piece of hardware, they’re putting everything they’ve got behind it.

It’s an exciting time to be a PlayStation fan. Since their February announcement of the PlayStation 4, Sony has got so much right in how they deliver their message.
Videos like the one to the left show that they know we want powerful hardware and sleek design but they also know we only want them to back up the gameplay experience. Sony’s message to the fans, that the PS4 is #4ThePlayers, is one that will surely resonate with all of us.
With a super fast 8GB of GDDR5 RAM and an AMD-made single-chip processor that combines an eight core “Jaguar” CPU with a 1.84 Teraflop next generation Radeon GPU, there’s plenty of power pushing those pixels.
The PS4 is all about the games. There’s a healthy stable of first-rate titles to sink your teeth into from launch, with much more on the horizon too. But if you want to play them online, you’re going to need to get PlayStation Plus.
This subscription service has gone from strength to strength since it launched on PS3 and with it you’ll get access to Contrast and Resogun for free right from day one, with more PS4 freebies to come – not to mention all the excellent content they give you for PS3 and Vita too.
PlayStation Plus also offers plenty of discounts on PSN Store content and for the cost of a yearly subscription it’s astounding value. There are 3 month and 1 month subscription terms available too, if you’re not quite sure you want to make a lengthy commitment, and US PS4s came with a free trial code in the box.
