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.

Playstation is being very pro consumer, and very anti microsoft.. THANK YOU!
This is cool and all, but I already knew like half of that stuff, you know, from the Trailer, but whatevs.
Gotta say, I'd heard pretty much all of these beforehand. Combined with the few I hadn't, though, it looks like the PS4 has a pretty good rebuttal to the services offered by the Xbox One.
hmm, interesting. Still going to hold off on buying one right away. I will be getting one that's for sure.
Yep I want The PS4 :)
There are some pretty cool stuff there. But exclusives are still the determinant factor to me
This looks awesome!
Upradeable hard drive? Thank you.
Damn you Ps4 why do you make it so hard for me to want the Xbox!
"in most cases", so let me guess, every app and game I want to do that with won't be the "compatible" ones!! lol. XBO can swap between everything, and the XBO is no longer region locked either (for the "our take" comment).
So it looks like sony is borrowing from MS and MS has borrowed from sony, no big deal. If it's making both systems better, I'm all for it :)
Who cares about going from games to apps faster. The demonstration at the Microsoft press conference at e3 gave me ADHD.
very nice, seems PS4 is gona be out the Xbox one.
Amazing, how all this "new" stuff is being praised when the 360 is already doing some of them and or MS announced it for the X1, which a lot of the fan boys were talking crap about how useless it is and it's gimmick, lol wow way to innovate Sony!! Lol they are just copying MS and taking credit for it, garbage!!
