Sony has released a video that shows much of the PlayStation 4′s interface, including a bevy of new social media features like sharing gameplay on a Facebook-esque wall, liking friends’ updates, as well as text and voice messaging. That’s neat and all, but what’s most exciting is how crazy easy it looks to pause your game, open the store, download something, and switch back to your game as your download continues in the background.
You can also choose to download either the single-player or the multiplayer component first. So, say, if you have a friend who’s being brutalized in Killzone, all you have to do is grab the multiplayer first so you can quickly lend them a hand. I also recommend getting friends who are better at Killzone. Read on for the video.
The PlayStation 4 releases later this year for $399.
