PS4′s social functions, video sharing and game-swapping shown in new trailer

Tuesday, 11th June 2013 10:44 GMT By Dave Cook

PlayStation 4′s suite of social and game sharing functions has been showcased in a trailer, courtesy of Sony.

The clip shows how users can access elements of the PS4′s social functions using smartphones, and how players can download part of a game and then start playing before it’s done. The example given showed a chap choosing whether to download Killzone: Shadow Fall’s multiplayer or single-player mode first.

What do you think of the trailer and the features shown?

Thanks Kotaku.

    @2 Aha, I wasn’t the only one who cringed a little at that, then?

    So much wrong with that sentence I don’t even know where to begin. I just wonder where he thought he needed to go to get Killzone. It wasn’t in the fridge.

    That layout kinda looks like Metro.

    Are Sony and Microsoft sharing the same retarded designers?

    But yeah, good video, shows off the great things about the PS4. It’s nice to see a company come up with genuinely meaningful innovations, things that gamers didn’t know they wanted or needed beforehand.

    It’s like a terribly cheesy soap opera, the amount of sexual tension between Will and Sarah, it’s obviously gonna happen.
