New PS4 Details: Dimensions, HDMI Only Support, HDD Speed
We've seen a lot of comparisons between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But how does the PS4 stack up against the PS3?
Of course, it's more advanced, but what are the specific differences? We get a few answers thanks to German publication ComputerBild (as translated by GamingBolt); there's some info concerning the weight and measurements, as well as HDMI support.
For instance, the Dual Shock 4 is slightly heavier than the Dual Shock 3 (214 grams vs. 190 grams) and the debug console unit comes in at 2,764 grams with a measurement of 30.5 x 27.6 x 5.4 cm (width x depth x height). As for HDMI, that's all the PS4 will support, so if you've got one of those old CRT screens, you're out of luck. The newer, faster hard disk speed is capable of speeds between 80 and 100 MB per second, and the PS4 should even be significantly quieter than the current console. The new machine was rated with a 0.83 Sone level, while the PS3 typically runs at about a 2.1 Sone rating.
These extra little details are great for the hardware lovers. Me, I just want the damn thing sitting in my entertainment center.
