Sony has announced their 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition, which was more than welcome news to gamers all over the world. Similarly, Microsoft has also announced their 1TB version of Xbox One. The gamers however, are getting rather impatient to try the new Sony Play Station 4.
Finally, on Monday, June 22, the company announced the higher memory capacity for PS4.
It is all due to the players downloading more and more games to their consoles, and this ultimately resulted in companies like Xbox and Sony investing more resources to increase the storage space of their devices.
Until now, the maximum storage capacity was 500GB in PS4. And now, to the absolute thrill of the players, it’s been doubled.
"Offering twice the storage of the existing PS4, you'll be able to download more of the games you love to your PS4, extend your play with more great add-on content and save and share even more of your best gaming highlights," said a PlayStation blog.
The PS4, however, has more features to offer, besides just a bigger storage capacity. The upcoming 1 TB PS4 is expected to add some great new enhancements: it’ll be lighter by 10% and will consume some 8% less energy than its 500GB predecessor.
You’ll be able to find it in Glacier White and Jet Black colors with a matte finish (giving it “a casual look” according to Sony).
Some new game titles from Sony’s own studio, as well as from other developers’ will find their place in the new 1TB version, which is also more than welcome news for games.
"The PS4 system's games portfolio will continue to expand with highly anticipated titles from third-party publishers as well as SCE [Sony Computer Entertainment] Worldwide Studios such as SENGOKU BASARA4 SUMERAGI (CAPCOM CO., LTD.), METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN (Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd.), GOD OF WAR III Remastered, Until Dawn, and The Tomorrow Children," stated Sony.
It is expected to be released in Japan first in June; but will soon be released in North America and some select European countries in July 15.
One tiny detail has yet to be revealed though – the expected price of the 1TB PS4. However, I think we won’t be too wrong to assume a bit higher price tag for this new PS4.
