The Playstation 4 was released about a month ago. It is amazing piece of machinery, very quiet. The GUI (Graphical User Interface) is also very sleek. The Playstation 4 controller offers 3 new buttons compared to the Playstation 3 controller. The new buttons are Options, a touch pad, and the Share button. The Share button taps into the world of Twitch.tv or UStream. Both websites are live streaming sites where gamers play video games for the world to see. Once the button is pressed, it brings up the 2 websites to choose. Once a website is chosen then the user hits "start streaming. Once streaming begins, the user is now broadcasting to the world. People from all over the world can watch the stream, comment, like, or even follow the player.

Another great feature on the Playstation 4 is on the dashboard. A panel called Live From Playstation allows the user to watch other players streams right from the playstation without a computer. The user can like and comment right on the Playstation without the use of a computer. Live From Playstation offers an endless array of videos to choose from.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 had a streaming feature integrated into the game, but it did not work too well. Black Ops 2 only allowed 15 minutes of gameplay and the frame rate and frame per a second were bad. With the help of the Playstation 4, streaming has never been so easy. It cuts out all the extra hardware which can say the user money. The Playstation 4 is in stores now for $399.
