Xbox One (XBox 360). A new console? The Xbox 360? The PS3? The Wii? Who knows. All we know is that it’s on sale over there.
The problem is when we say we don’t know. We don’t know if the Xbox One X will be called the “world’s largest” because no one knows how big the Xbox One console is. We don’t know if the Xbox 360 console will be called “the world’s largest” because no one knows how big the PS3 console is. We don’t know if the Wii will be called “the world’s largest” because no one knows how big the PS3 console is.
The fact is that the gaming industry is full of surprises. We may not know exactly what a console is going to look like, we may not know exactly how big it is, and we may not know exactly what it will be like to play it.
Well, no one should ever underestimate the power of the PlayStation 4. The fact is that the PlayStation 4 is going to be the largest console in the world. Sony has been bragging about it for months now, and it has been making headlines in the gaming press for several months. If you ask me, it is not crazy to think the PS4 has the world’s largest display, and the biggest camera as well.
Sony has been bragging about the PS4 for a long time now, and I am not exaggerating when I say that its PlayStation 4 console is coming in at a whopping 4 inches (or 16.5cm) thick. This is a large display and one that will have many gamers clamoring for it.
The PS4 is coming in at 4 inches or 16.5cm thick, and that’s a huge difference, especially when you compare to the console Sony released a year ago. Sony released the device called the PlayStation TV in a much thinner format back in September, and it was a huge disappointment.
The PS4 was designed to play games designed for the Xbox 360, but Sony’s new TV has a full-size, 1080p display, which means it will be much lighter (and therefore thinner) than the Xbox 360. And if that wasn’t enough, it will support Sony’s own DualShock-3 controller.
So, is the PlayStation TV the world’s largest in both size and weight? Well its only a guess since its based on a single frame, but I think it is. In a year or two, its likely to be the biggest (and most expensive) product in the world, due to its price tag of $399. Sony has not yet revealed the cost of the PS4, but I am sure it will be a few thousand dollars.
If this is true, it seems like Sony is about a year away from the Playstation 4. I have not played the demo Xbox 360 version of Deathloop yet, but if you are a huge PS3 fan I am sure you would be happy to see the Playstation TV. That would be great, because most of your PS3 games would be playable on the PS4.
The PS4 is really all about games, and while I will be interested in seeing the PS4 in action, I am far more interested in how Sony plans to monetize it. I don’t know if the Playstation TV is really all that expensive, but if Sony really is going to sell the PS4 at 399 for a TV, I just hope its price doesn’t fall at the same time that Sony does.
