PlayStation 4: Features You'll Appreciate
DualShock 4 Controller: Significantly redesigned, these are considered by most to be Sony's best controllers ever. They feature improved directional pads, easier to maneuver analog sticks, improved motion sensing, an adjustable light bar speaker, yet each weighs just an ounce more than its predecessor.

Remote Play: You don't have to stay rooted to the couch to continue your game's story. Remote Play is technology that allows a PS4 to become a hub device that sends a video stream to other displays, on your PlayStation Vita or any of the Sony Xperia series smartphones, with the DualShock 4 or DualShock 3 controller, over your home Wi-Fi network.
PlayStation Plus: This paid subscription lets you download a number of games for free, plus gives you early access to new games, helping you determine which games you want to purchase. Additionally, your Plus membership lets you play multiplayer games online, access 10GB cloud storage and learn about exclusive content like members-only PS4 themes, competitions, events and community activities.
What Else Can PlayStation 4 Do?
PS4 is pretty much a complete multimedia consumption device. For starters you can stream media like Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, plus it has an internet browser so you can surf the internet and watch YouTube. It also has a built-in Blu-ray drive to play Blu-ray movies (but not 4K movies), and with Sony's new Media Player app, you're able to stream a vast collection of file types stored on your home server. It also gives you access to the Spotify music streaming service, and to PlayMemories Online, a free picture cloud. And, using the PlayStation network, you can buy and watch movies and TV shows.
PlayStation VR: There's also PlayStation VR, the virtual reality platform designed to deliver exciting, innovative gaming experiences with the plug-and-play Sony VR headset. Seamless visuals keep you connected to the virtual world through an expansive 5.7" OLED 1080p display running at up to 120 frames per second, while, at the same time, providing you with deeply immersive 360-degree audio. There are currently over 200 PS VR games available, including the popular RIGS, Batman Arkham VR, PlayStation VR Worlds, Battlezone and Driveclub VR.
