Sony working on "grand" FAQ for PlayStation 4

PlayStation maker says document "should answer all your questions," will be released in next few weeks.

by

Gamers with lingering questions about the PlayStation 4 may be happy to learn Sony is working on a "grand" FAQ for the next-generation console, SCEE Blog Manager Fred Dutton said today.

On the European PlayStation Blog, a fan asked for more details on the PS4's user interface and features, as well as the camera, and if the PS4 store is integrated with the PlayStation 3 store.

"We're working on a grand FAQ post for the next week or two that should answer all your questions," Dutton said. "Stay tuned."

The PS4 launches in three weeks first in North America on November 15. The console will be available in Europe beginning November 29.

Yesterday, Sony released a PS4 promotional video that stated 24 PS4-exclusives are currently in development. In all, Sony said more than 180 games are in development for PS4, "more than any other next-gen console," including the Xbox One.

At least Sony is doing their best to appease the consumer better than Microsoft. I still say Microsoft will initiate the original plan with the XBOne down the road, which is just another way to alienate their consumers. I would rather buy a used refurbished 360 than an xbone at this point.

i think new console shouldn't be bought at least 3 or 6 months after first release, there might be tons of bugs in it.

Is there a VGA connection? Because if there isn't then there's no use for it in my room. ;)

PS4 is the true next gen console to me, while xbox one has so many negatives i cant find a good reason to ever get one. I knew PS4 was more powerful but the lack of true 1080p support for xbone, among dozens and dozens of other things it really cant compete with PS4

But have fun with Indie games, 3D pinball looks amazing. I mean I was playing it in 2002 on the PC when Windows XP launched with it, but hey, whatever.

Whats this kid even saying? I can barely understand him. Also I don't see any announcements for any games named "Naughty dogs", "Santa Monica", "Sony London" , "Media Molecule" OR "Guerrilla Games". Might as well be throwing out Last Guardian references.

so if there's no other use for it we can kinda say that sony's statement about health status was all crap, i don't think so but yet it could be! we'll have to wait.

I think it was mainly for use with the PS Eye, which was gonna ship with the PS4, but since they dropped it from the bundle, it's pretty much useless.. Though it's also supposed to show which player you are.

Indie games, indie games, indie games, indie games, ported pc free-2-play games, free-2-play, free-2-play ...ughhh. Don't really need a FAQ about that.

i just want to know about that light on the controller, they say it will give u some info about your health status and some more, but that light can't be seen without flipping the controller and looking at it, so how is it gonna be helpful ?

No matter how comprehensive it'll be, it'll still inevitably omit the questions I'll find myself asking.

i just want to know why is the ps4 just a rip off of everything the 360 has done already still waiting to see something new from sony

I just want to know if it plays mkv files. With the delay of Watch Dogs, I have no reason to follow thru with my release day preorder unless it plays them. ...or unless I want to try to resell it at a considerable mark up if there's too great a demand for the system.

@Frederick Quatman 

yea seriously your going on and on about launch titles when launch titles suck for both systems. sure xbox1 has may be 1 or 2 games that if you are interested in that makes their launch a tad better. but both systems launch games suck.

@smoke1125 Um, did you not watch the Knack trailer in this article?  Rip off of 360...waiting for something new, okay...

Well then, please show me something on Xbox (any generation) that comes close to Knack's level of world interaction, immersion, and even emotional connection...that isn't a canine in a CoD game that hasn't come out yet, or a faceless dude in green space armor...

...that's what I thought, :-)

@smoke1125 Not really but it sure looks like they're still trying to copy a lot of features from Nintendo.

@Sundberg_man from what i heard from the devs was that the ps4 was a fair bit more powerfull even with the X1s minor boost that it was given

@Sundberg_man really you are going to listen to a guy that makes games for both consoles and needs to sell games on both systems haha you moron the anonymous developers saying it is 50% more powerful are more trust worthy they are developers actually telling the truth but staying anonymous so they don't get fired from the company they work at for pissing off Microsoft by telling the truth heck even the people making the new need for speed have admitted the ps4 version is a lot better then the Xbone version
