PS4 Blu-Ray Will Be 3x Faster Than PS3 And PSN Friend Limit Raised
Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 at an event just over a month ago. Their plans for the next generation gaming system include incredible graphics and exclusive content. However, you will have to wait until the Holiday Season 2013 to get your hands on it.
In the meantime, Sony’s PlayStation 4 spot at the Game Developers Conference helped provide a better idea of what will go into the PS4. More specifically, the new system will be centered around an updated Blu-Ray drive. The new drive will be three times faster than the drive on Sony’s PS3.
As you may know, Blu-Ray has been Sony’s claim to fame in the gaming world, providing some of the best graphics around. Now that the Blu-Ray drive is going to be updated, one can only hope that the graphics will advance even more.
In addition, Sony is planning to remove the 100 friend limit in the PlayStation Network. The new limit has not been announced but Sony is also changing how they will display your name in PSN. Instead of automatically displaying your real name to your friends, you will have to decide which of your friends can see your “True Name”.
However, your name will automatically be shown if you become friends with another user via a social network where your name is provided.
Are you excited for the next generation of gaming consoles? Can you wait until the Holiday Season to pick one up? Let us know in the comments below.
