My husband and I are both fans of consoles We had the PS2, PS3, Xbox360, PSP and PS Vita. Now, we have Sony Playstation 4! This console is definitely worth your attention!
The design is great. It looks very stylish. I have only seen it so far in two colors: white and black. We liked the black more and opted for that one. The console can both lie horizontally and stand vertically.

The gamepad is become mega cool compared to the PS 3. There are light effects, a speaker and a touchpad! There's also a headphone jack. It's very comfortable and fits well in your hands.
The camera. It’s awesome! Now it catches your moves even better. Also, the camera recognizes users by their faces and understands some gestures. I'm a little concerned that it can take photos without asking ... For example, in the game Until Dawn, it takes a picture of the player reacting to scary moments. And no one knows where it sends these photos or videos (maybe it took a picture of me falling off the couch). I don’t know. It’s strange.
Exclusive games - Knack, Killzone: Shadow Fall.
Subscription to Playstation Plus: It’s better to subscribe for a year than for a month. The subscription is obligatory if you play online games. What’s more, it offers a number of other advantages:
- Free games every month (including PS Vita)
- Using network storage (you can create backup copies of games)
- Access to demo games
- And more
Games: Unfortunately, there is no compatibility with the PS-3. So, we have to buy games specifically for the PS 4. My favorite game is Grand Theft Auto 5! I recommend buying games on disks. Of course, digital versions are more convenient and cheaper, but a disk can be easily sold or traded.
I also want to say that the console gets warm and sometimes makes noise. Perhaps that's OK, but, we bought a stand which helps it to "breathe" in an upright position.
Communication: On the console you can create several profiles. Each user has their own Playstation Network account. You can add friends. There are possibilities to:
- Create or join a "party" - voice chat.
- Share any moments from gameplay
- Take screenshots and share them (including upload to Facebook)
- Text and voice messages, of course.
The Sony Playstation 4 is a great console. It’s a cool present for anyone who likes video games.
I recommend it.
