The lights are on
While the title is a bit of a fib – many of these facts had been discussed before – this new promotional video does tease some interesting functionality, including instant app switching similar to what Microsoft has promised on Xbox One.You'll also get a further look at the new PlayStation user interface, the PlayStation Dynamic Menu. It's intended to better unify the experience, from games to social features. It also confirms the news that you'll be able to access your downloadable games from other consoles. Other notable facts include the revelation that the 500GB hard drive is replaceable and upgradable (good news) and that the system is not region locked (yay!).It also says you'll be able to switch between apps like Netflix and gaming, which sounds a whole lot like the functionality that Microsoft has made so much of in its promotion of Xbox One. In any case, there are some more facts to learn, so watch below.

Good to know!
ill find out everything about the system when my brother buys it.
I knew all of this already...
Just release the damn consoles already.
I like swiss cheese.
When I imagined the next generation of video game consoles a few years ago, all I could predict was the excitement I would feel. Now, even though the industry feels so different with Steam and mobile markets, I feel as though Sony was at a crossroads. Not necessarily life or death, but I could think of quite a few practices or features that would have negatively impacted many people.
I'm very happy Sony seems to be doing everything right with the ps4. It feels great when technology changes in the ways you hope it does.
I love how mellow the Playstation videos are.
I've been on the fence about which system to get but this video just pushed me over the edge. I love my 360 but Sony wins this time.
Two thumbs up
Microsoft lies to, and abuses it's customers. It always makes me laugh to see you morons supporting them.
