Sony has made it official: The PlayStation 4 is real and it’s coming. Holiday 2013 to be vaguely exact. But what it looks like, how much it will cost, and whether it will finally render all communications with females obsolete is still unknown. What we do know is the PS4 will feature a DualShock 4 that looks a lot like previous PlayStation controllers, with some notable additions including a small touchscreen, “light bar” to be used in conjunction with a camera accessory, built-in headphone jack, and “Share” button to let you stream and upload videos of your gaming exploits.
Some tech specs to throw at you (just nod and pretend you know what this means, that’s what we do): 8GB of system memory, X86 CPU, 8 CPU cores, and 2 teraflops of computational performance. Software you say? Sony’s touting titles like Killzone: Shadow Fall, Driveclub, Second Son, Watch Dogs, The Witness, Diablo III (also coming to the PS3), and Bungie’s new effort Destiny. Your move, Intellivision.
