RealGamerNewz - We Are Nex Gen

PlayStation 4 Specs and Release Date Confirmed Again by Official PlayStation Magazine

By Jon Ireson in News

Today the Official PlayStation Magazine sorted out the claims from the reality when it comes to what exactly PlayStation 4 will bring to the table in terms of hardware specs and even when we can expect to get our hands on the machines ourselves. Among the data compiled OPM also mentions that Killzone: Shadow Fall is “rumored” to have run with only 1.5gb of PlayStation 4 8gb GDDR5 Memory being used, seeming to suggest far more power will come out of PlayStation 4 for years to come upon release to the market.

Beyond the features OPM mentions, we at RealGamerNewz are also excited to report that our most anticipated feature will be instant game demos (no downloading required) and in-demo purchases that will download the rest of the game for you without interrupting gameplay. If this can be pulled off gracefully then we will once and for all have an end to bad shopping experiences in digital distribution stores on gaming console devices.
