Sony pushes streaming and sharing with PS4
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 with third-party services, phones, and tablets -- you'll be able to use your smartphone to view gameplay videos and challenge friends. Executives demonstrated this on Sony's PlayStation Vita and streamed a game from the PS4 to the Vita handheld. The long-term goal is to make every PS4 game playable on Vita, according to Gaikai CEO Dave Perry.
