PS4 Info Keeps Rolling: Controller, Specs, Launch Target
Yup, the PS4 information (none of it official just yet, though) keeps rolling.
The latest apparently comes from reputable sources as cited by Edge, and it involves both the PS4 controller and the proposed specifications.
First, the previously rumored "Share" button featured on the new controller will let users publish screenshots and video on the Internet. It seems the system will actually record the most recent 15 minutes of gameplay - and at no processing cost - and then you can edit and share that footage with friends. Furthermore, another previous rumor has apparently been pseudo-confirmed: The PS4 controller will boast a rear touchpad reminiscent of the PlayStation Vita.
As for the hardware itself, the console will supposedly be more developer-friendly than the PS3 (which is good news) and it'll feature 4GB of RAM (potentially 8GB in a final configuration) and be capable of moving data at 176GB per second. One source claimed the new PlayStation would be "slightly more powerful" than the Xbox 720 and "very simple to work with." And lastly, it seems the PS4 will launch in Japan and the US before the holiday season; the European release will follow in early 2014.
So what do you conclude from these details?
