CreaseCrusader91 Posted February 21, 2013 Share Posted February 21, 2013 Sony's new PlayStation 4 will focus on streaming games across a network of devices and tapping into social gaming, executives said today. This means faster downloading times, video clip share buttons, and the ability to take over a friend's controller when they are in need of assistance, the company highlighted at its event in New York today. Mark Cerny, the lead system architect for PS4, said the console system's OnLive network will have a seamless upload experience. This means players can start playing the first part of a game before it is done downloading. Additionally, PS4 boasts integration third party and services, phones, and tablets -- you'll be able to use your smartphone to view gameplay videos and challenge friends. Along with Cerny's announcement, Sony featured cloud-gaming firm Gaikai's contributions to PS4. Gaikai CEO Dave Perry said your friends will be able to virtually look over your shoulder and interact with you as you play, as well as post comments on their screens. http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-9020_7-57570372-222/sony-pushes-streaming-and-sharing-with-ps4/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
