Sony has unveiled a new generation PlayStation 4 system Wednesday and outlined his vision of “the future of the game” in a world full of gadgets and mobile games streaming from the Internet cloud.
At a press conference in New York, a unit of computer entertainment chief Andrew House has said PS4 “represents a significant change in thinking like a box or PlayStation console at the thought of the PlayStation 4 as prominently to play. ” Absent from the event was about Sony that provides for the Company were movies, music, TV shows and other digital content available on the PS4.
In a move that has not escaped observers, there was no glimpse of a PlayStation 4 launch event.
“It is strange that Sony did not show a physical device,” said Gartner technology consumer research director Brian Blau.
“These days, people love beautiful machines, mainly because of Apple.” Sony talked ambiguous on the device, leaving a lot of room for imagination in a two-hour presentation aimed primarily at gamemakers and players.
“They do not want to give anything away, what is the nature of the industry,” said Blau. “Sony was really trying to get developers excited about what is happening.”
PS4 has been designed to get to know the players, ideally to be able to predict where people will buy games and pre-loaded and ready to play.
It also allows gameplay to be broadcast in real time, leaving virtually friends over the shoulders of each other and act as gamemakers “Directors” directors and players.
Sony also gave the green light to the construction of “the most powerful network for games in the world,” said David Perry, director of the company Gaikai cloud gaming that Sony bought last year.
Gaikai specializes in letting people play games streaming video from the Internet “cloud” instead of buying securities on hard surfaced in consoles or computers.
“By combining PlayStation 4, PlayStation Network and social platforms, our vision is to create the first social network dedicated to meaningful games,” Perry said at the event.
He spoke to let people access and play video games on the Internet using PS4, smartphones, tablets or PS Vita portable devices.
“We are exploring opportunities enabled by cloud technology with a long-term vision to make technology available on PlayStation any device,” said Perry.
“This will fundamentally change the concept of longevity game, making any game available new or old to get up and running on any device, anywhere.” Sony needs to adapt to changing lifestyles, without excluding gamers dedicated to his equipment.
Games at low cost or free smartphones or tablets increase the pressure on companies to offer video game experience worth the time and money players.
A Playstation App will iPhones, iPads or Android smartphones or tablets to be used as a “second screen” Increase game is played on connected televisions PS4 consoles, according to Sony.
Sony said that the PS4 would hit the market in time for the holiday season and New Year but did not provide details.
Next generation consoles usually costs between $ 400 and $ 500, and the blockbuster game titles arrive on the market at $ 60 each.
With streaming technology Gaikai to let people play PlayStation 3 games on PS4 hardware was probably intended to allay concerns that fans switching to the new system would be forced to abandon beloved older games, according to Blau.
He was impressed by the word PS4 could integrate with Facebook, saying that “almost all the other” has already jumped on the evolution of synchronization with the leading social network.
“I’m a little worried about their social integration,” said Blau. “We might think that a company like Sony would have a lot of experience by exposing users of social mechanisms, and I have not seen it TODAY ‘hui. “He cited the PS4 as evolutionary rather than revolutionary.
“Sony believes that the future will be like the past and built the game console to prove it,” Forrester analyst James McQuivey said in a blog post.
“Although the technology that goes into the console is definitely the future, the idea behind the PS4 is firmly rooted in the past,” McQuivey continued. “More specifically, the PS4 aspire to a glorious day of gaming.” Sony shares fell in the wake of the presentation, end down 1.77 percent at 1,331 yen on the Tokyo Nikkei index.
The rating agency Fitch warned him about the new gadget was unlikely to turn around fortunes of the company.
He was “unlikely to be the savior of Sony,” Fitch said, noting the company has lost money on the PS3 for the first years after its launch until production costs fell .
“The competitive nature of the market may also reduce profitability,” the agency said in a note Thursday.
“The key to the success of the product price will, timing, content, and how it compares with the Xbox yet-to-be-announced next generation. None of these details are currently available. ‘
