Announced PS4 Details

The PS4 will launch Friday, November 15th in the US and Canada; Friday, November 29th in European markets; and in 32 total countries worldwide before the end of 2013.

The PlayStation 4 will cost $399.99, €399, or £349 at launch depending on region. The controller and camera will each cost $59.99 as accessories. The DualShock 4 controller will be available in Magma Red and Wave Blue colors shortly after launch.

The PS4 will launch with a 500 GB HDD.

The PS4 allows people to resume games instantly upon turning on the system (no startup time) from where they were when they turned the system off.

All PS4 games (that aren't camera-based) will be playable remotely on day one via Remote Play on the PS Vita.

The PS4 will allow users to play games after downloading only a small portion of the game's data.

Developers have the ability to dynamically vary the order in which specific data within each title is downloaded and, as such, can prioritize download data based on player behavior.

You can choose which part of a game to download first (i.e. single-player or multiplayer).

The PS4 can charge the DualShock 4 controller while on standby.

'Share' button functionality allows for quick screenshots or video upload of gameplay as well as sharing live streams of gameplay with friends or over Ustream and TwitchTV.

Users can add commentary to their gameplay streams.

Users will be able to take control of friends games to help them through tough spots and such.

The system will launch with a headset that plugs directly into the controller for more prevalent voice communication across the PSN.

Cross-game chat is officially supported.

Cross-game chat on PS4 supports cross-platform chat on the PS Vita.

Game prices will range from $0.99-$59.99.

All PS4 games will be available as digital downloads.

NVIDIA is supporting the PS4 with Apex and PhysX developer support.

The PS4 will support Move but not the DualShock 3.

A PlayStation app called 'PlayStation App' is coming to Android and iOS that allows the device to act as a second screen (à la SmartGlass) as well as purchase content and have it directly downloaded to your system even if your system is off at the time as long as it is plugged in. Your system will then turn back off after the download is complete. It stands to reason that this will also include messaging on the go and other stuff like that.

The PS4 will support 4K video output but not for games.

A 4K video service will be coming to the PS4.

The PS4 is 3D capable but it is not a focus.

Certain apps can run in the background of games (such as the web browser) so you can access them without having to leave the game itself.

The PS4 allows for custom soundtracks, i.e. you are able to listen to music in the background while playing games. Pressing and holding the “PS” button on the DualShock 4 controller will bring up a pop up menu that will enable quick access to pause or skip tracks, and adjust the volume.

The DualShock 4 Touchpad resolution is 1920x900.

The controller light-bar colors are the Player Numbers: 1-Blue, 2-Red, 3-Green, 4-Pink (like the PlayStation button colors). They also can be used for muzzle flashes, health indicators, etc.

For PS4/Vita Remote Play, the screens are always mirrored, so you can start at any time. There is no special mode required.

The GDDR5 bus is 256 bit.

Your real name is not displayed by default unless you import from a social network.

8 cores, 8 HW threads, 2MiB L2 cache per 4 core group, 32kib l1 I/D-cache

PlayStation Shader Language, very similar to HLSL, allows features beyond Direct X 11 and OpenGL 4.0

The PS4 supports hUMA (heterogeneous Uniform Memory Access).

A long press of the 'Share' button takes a screenshot.

'Share' button functionality (screenshots, video recording) can be disabled by developers at certain moments in the game (like at the final boss for example).

The used game policies for the PS4 will remain the same as the PS3. You can still trade in games at retail, sell them, lend them, or keep them forever.

An internet connection is absolutely not required to operate the PS4 or play single-player games.

Online multiplayer on the PS4 requires a PlayStation Plus subscription.

Online free-to-play games will not require PlayStation Plus.

Apps and services like Netflix, the web browser, and party chat will not require PlayStation Plus.

PlayStation Plus will also not be required to stream your gameplay feed online.

A single PlayStation Plus account will allow all accounts on a PS4 to play online.

The PS4 will ship with a 14-day trial for PlayStation Plus.

The PS4's HDD is fully upgradable just like the PS3's

The PS4 Eye (camera) will not be included with the console.

The PS4 will be region-free for games (like the PS3).

The PS4's Blu-ray player will be region locked (like the PS3).

The PS4 will have 20 first-party exclusive titles in the first 12 months and currently has 30 in production for the system.

Gaikai streaming of PS3 games will be available on the PS4 and PS3 in 2014 and on the Vita at some point after.

Like its predecessors, the PlayStation 4 will not have a power brick and simply use a standard power cord.

The vertical system stand is not included (despite being shown in many images, including the officially released console box art).

PS4 to Vita remote play functionality will work over the internet if your connection is good enough (as well as via a direct connection when close to the console).

PS4 to Vita remote play functionality will work while playing online multiplayer on the PS4.

The PS4 will officially support PS3 wireless headsets.

All PS3 compatible wheels will work on PS4.

The PS4 allows for only one system to be offline activated per account (multiple accounts can be activated on the same system). This means you select a single PS4 to be your "home console" for a particular account and in doing so you can download and play digital content offline on the system. This has nothing to do with physical media.

You can play your digital games on any console while logged in to your PSN account and constantly connected.

The new OS layout is customizable is some fashion.

The friends list limit will be 2000 on the PS4 (and subsequently the PS3 and Vita as well).

You can install games to the HDD from a disc and play them as long as the disc is still inserted. This benefits to this are improved load times and no spinning of the Blu-ray drive needed during play.

You can stream game audio through the 3.5mm headset jack on the DualShock 4 controller as well as use it for voice chat.

The PS4 camera supports navigational voice commands.

I have been a Sony fanboy my whole life, but I think after graduating and seeing less free time I have been assimilated into the master race.

Oh and my launch PS3 just YLODd for the first time last week.

Despite all that, I will probably end up with the PS4 eventually. Hell the PS2 was out 2 years before I got one and I picked up my "launch" PS3 about 16 months after launch..., so we will see.

Can someone explain to me exactly what the touch pad on the controller does? I'm gonna be at work for a bit so I can research a ton. I looked briefly but didn't see a description of what it does
