Sa wakas, it's officially official!
We've already blabbered about the PlayStation 4 many times, giving you the deets and answering your hottest questions about the device. So, this time around, we'll just give you a little refresher on the basics. The PlayStation 4 packs an AMD Jaguar 8-core processor and an AMD Radeon GPU, a local hard drive, and 8GB of GDDR5 memory. Wi-Fi, LAN, Bluetooth, an optical drive, and USB 3.0 ports are part of the mix, too.
With those specs, it's able to rival high-end desktops in the graphics department. Too bad it's not backwards compatible (for other details every PlayStation 4 buyer should know, click here). You could also use it together with the PlayStation Vita which can act as a secondary controller and display for the PlayStation 4.
Now, the big question is: How much is the PlayStation 4 in pesos? It all depends on what package you'll buy:
- Base package (console plus one controller): P24,999
- PlayStation 4 with PS Camera: P26,999
- PlayStation 4 game bundle (with Killzone: Shadow Fall): P26,899
- PlayStation 4 game bundle (with Battlefield 4): P27,399
The PS4 has actually been up for pre-order locally since last month and yesterday (January 14) was the first day those who pre-ordered received their units. If you didn't pre-order, don't worry, you can still one today at Sony's booth located at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati. You could also visit select Sony Centers in Metro Manila, Cebu, Davao, Pampanga, and Cagayan de Oro.
However, we're told that supply is very limited. More PlayStation 4s will be available in the next couple of months but if you want yours now, better hurry up.
Aside from the console, Sony also released a load of PlayStation-compatible devices, including three that really stood out from the pack. Check them out on the next page!
