A Social Thrust

With an emphasis on social across all things digital, PS4 puts social in the center of the gaming experience. Sony is building new features into the foundation of the system's hardware architecture. For example, gamers will be able to share their wins by pressing a button. Gamers simply hit the "SHARE" button on the controller, scan through the last few minutes of game play, tag it and return to the game -- the video uploads as the gamer plays. Gamers can also share their images and videos to friends on social networking services such as Facebook.

The PS4 will allow what Sony calls "social spectating" by letting gamers broadcast their game play in real-time to friends using live Internet streaming services such as Ustream. During live broadcasts, friends can make comments on the streamed game play. If a gamer gets stuck on a challenging level, friends can also join the game in completely new ways. For example, friends can offer health potions or special weapons when a player needs them most during actual game play.
