Over the last two decades, the Sony PlayStation console line has changed and redefined the face of video gaming. With its real-time 3D technology and a focus on a broader audience, the first console and its subsequent revisions ushered in a new segment of gaming aficionados. The PlayStation line has evolved and taken over the current generation with a substantial chunk of the market, and right now it’s difficult to think about a childhood without the PlayStation at the center of it – there’s a whole generation of people who grew up as PlayStation gamers!
We all love our PlayStation 4 and what it has brought to gaming, and Sony definitely knows we love great graphics and solid framerates. Because of this, it released the PS4 Pro, a souped up version of the PS4 with lots of improvements and extra power over the regular version of the console so that we can get the best looking games with the fastest framerates around. The added processing power takes care of a game’s artificial intelligence, physics and more while also allowing developers to give us great looking games at up to 4K resolution.
2017 is fully in its second half, and we’ve been getting a lot of great releases, but there are several still to come before December is over. Will these releases match the quality of 2016’s Overwatch, Dishonored 2, Battlefield 1 and of course Witcher 3? There are still a few months to go, so let’s check out the games that everyone’s talking about just over the horizon.
When you look at the world we live in today, it’s hard to imagine gaming without the PlayStation as a key player. The original PlayStation launched “way back” in 1994, and since then each new iteration of the console has undergone significant changes, from the hardware itself to the graphics and sound it can produce, not to mention the quality and the range of games on offer.
When Sony’s PlayStation VR was launched in October 2016, it was originally intended to make playing the PS4 more realistic than ever. Now, the VR headset is being used with mobile devices, too, which is why it is not surprising to learn that soon, most online games will be played using this gadget.
Gaming has definitely come a long way during the last decade. It used to be that gaming was considered as an irresponsible activity, a waste of time or, even worse, as detrimental to one’s lifestyle. I can still remember the stereotype of the ‘adult’ gamer: fat, dirty, and living at home in mom and dad’s basement. However, the reality in 2016, is very different: gaming, whether on consoles, handhelds or on PC is definitely on the rise, and it’s becoming an industry to rival some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster franchises not to mention other multi-million dollar industries.
