PS4 GDC Conference Summary (no pics/vids)

9 posts in this topic

Summary:

PS4's friend list is being expanded

Play Remote Play on Vita through home network or Internet

No support needed from devs for Remote Play besides Vita controller configuration

No support needed from devs for any streaming/uploading of videos

Controllers charge when PS4 off

Controller buttons are digital not analog

Controller keeps copy of user profile

A long push on the controller share button takes a screenshot

Have to enable people seeing your real name on the PS4. Auto-enabled if you import from another social network. (Can be turned off)

Games are downloaded in chunks

Buy games/download demos from Playstation app on Android/iOS, immediately starts downloading on PS4

PS4 Eye can switch split-screen depending on where each player is sitting (Sees the controller, you guys move, splitscreen moves to be on the right side)

PS4 Eye will enhance the PS4 user experience.

Controller keeps copy of user profile - So always have to use the same controller?

Have to enable people seeing your real name on the PS4. - TERRIBLE idea. Sure it can be turned off but still. :s

1. Of course not, it simply means you can make your account portable and take it to friends houses.

2. It reads as you have to enable your name for it to appear, by default it DOESN'T appear.

The dev kits are usually a PC with some sort of custom console hardware.
