No doors were blown off. No presses were stopped. Yesterday’s invite-only “PlayStation Meeting” in New York had less in common with the excitement of a new console reveal than with a mid-cycle Apple iPhone event – with which it happened to share the date. Shortly after Tim Cook’s brain had waited patiently on stage for its host’s Carpool Karaoke ordeal to mercifully end, Sony was doing its best to build excitement for it’s own mid-cycle refresh of the world’s number one selling video game console, the PlayStation 4. Along with a slimmer version of the current PS4 (that’s unhappily less capable than its equally slim new rival, the Xbox One S) Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO, Andrew House revealed the faster, more powerful PlayStation 4 Pro, which will retail at $399 when it launches November 10th. Here’s a primer.
What is it?
The PlayStation 4 Pro is the brainchild of Mark Cerny, lead system architect for PlayStation and technical MVP of at least three generations of Sony games including Crash Bandicoot, Uncharted and Resistance. It features a new three-layer case design, a more powerful graphics processor and a faster CPU, along with a bigger, 1TB hard drive. All of which is in the service of two things: the 4K future of your television and the soon-to-be-strapped-to-your-face future of Virtual Reality.
Traditionally, console makers like Sony have been on a mission to drag out the life of a single piece of hardware for as long as possible between generations. The original PlayStation lasted six years, the PS3 seven before they were superseded. What’s changed is the technology inside, which used to be bespoke and pricey but is now basically the same, off-the-shelf stuff that sits in every PC, tablet and notebook. That and a tech consumer that expects their phones to be updated every two years. That’s made it a much easier sell, and even a necessary step in order to keep up with the current trend towards ever more high definition content (4K TVs) and games that demand virtually photorealistic graphics.
What does it mean for my games?
Quite a bit. The enhanced graphics and 4K output means that games you already own, as well as any new titles released after the PS4 Pro is launched, will either be running smoother (faster frame rates), running with much more detail (in 4K) or at the very least, running with enhanced color depth – thanks to the addition of High Dynamic Range, or HDR. To prove the point, at yesterday’s reveal, Sony re-introduced a number of stunning-looking games – from the open-world sci-fi adventure of Guerrilla’s Horizon Zero Dawn, to the zombie apocalypse of Days Gone from Sony’s Bend Studio, to Ubisoft’s hacker fantasy, Watch Dogs 2, and finally a surprise all-new in-game demo of Bioware’s forthcoming Mass Effect Andromeda – all running in 4K with HDR color.
What does it mean for movies and TV?
If you have a 4K TV and broadband, the PS4 Pro will take advantage of the limited (but growing) Netflix library of 4K content via a new Netflix streaming app. Marvel’s new Luke Cage series will be compatible, as is the Netflix original series and caterpillar mustache showcase Narcos. Sony also has its own catalog of 4K movies that live under its ‘Ultra’ brand. Bafflingly, despite Sony owning the Blu-Ray format, the PS4 Pro won’t be able to play 4K Blu-Ray discs – something the new Xbox One S can do. Either Sony doesn’t believe its own disc format has a future, or it’s simply assuming that the kind of people that will pay $399 for a mid-cycle refresh of a games console they already own are cutting edge enough to have long since left the confines of physical media for the world of streaming.
What if I don’t have a 4K TV?
Thanks to the wonders of something called super-sampling, where the PS4 Pro takes the 4K image data and shrinks the image to fit a standard HD screen, even a 1080p image should look a wee bit sharper. But the real benefit will be in how games run. If the PS4 Pro detects a standard HD TV, it will know to push its power towards increasing the frame rate and dabbing extra detail into the world, such as extra blades of grass in a field or more realistic flowing locks on the head of your favorite hero. Or slightly more realistic identical gray backpacks in The Division.
What does this have to do with PlayStation VR?
Because VR works by giving each eye its own HD TV, virtual reality is power-hungry – effectively asking the PS4 to draw everything on the screen twice. Though Sony has promised that all PSVR games will run smoothly on the vanilla PS4, the extra processing power that the Pro brings to the party is going to mean enhanced – and certainly less motion-sickness-inducing experiences, thanks to increased frame rates.
How does it compare to Microsoft’s forthcoming 2017 Xbox One update, ‘Project Scorpio’?
Given that it’s arriving an entire year earlier, not well. Microsoft has already stated that its PS4 Pro equivalent will have both faster chips and more raw processing power thanks to its silicon being a generation newer. What this means in practice is too early to say, but both systems will handle 4K gaming with HDR color so the real differences are likely to be in the smoothness of the images and the amount of detail the designers can bake into their creations. Still, neither Sony nor Microsoft want to see inferior versions for their legacy consoles, so this will have to be handled carefully – it’s one thing to see every leaf on a tree in 4K on PS4 Pro, but another to find that on an old PS4 the tree has been replaced by a sign that says ‘tree here’ because the aging processor can’t hack it.
PlayStation VR launches this week, and looks like it could well be the first proper “living room-friendly” virtual reality setup. If anything has a decent shot at demystifying virtual reality gaming and making it a little more “mainstream” this year, this is probably it. At the very least, the gargantuan marketing push that Sony is making is prompting people to at least consider trying something new that’s maybe a little outside their comfort zone. The company claims to have already given more than a quarter million demos at Best Buys, GameStops and other stores in an effort to convey the fact that VR is really something you need to see and – more importantly – feel to fully comprehend its potential.
Sony initially appeared to be uncharacteristically late to the VR party – announcing its $399 device for PlayStation 4 this March, more than a year after the other high profile VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive for PC – but it has actually been working in secret on it for more than half a decade. Glixel spoke with Shawn Layden, the chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s worldwide studios for some insight into how initial development of the headset had nothing to do with Sony management, how there’s no plan to try and replace more traditional gaming setups, and how he’s trying to avoid a lull in games after launch.
Here are the five most surprising revelations from our conversation.
Sony bosses never instructed anyone to develop a virtual reality headset – it all came about from engineers tinkering in a lab building it on the quiet.
“If you ask when it was ‘first floated’ as an idea – really, what is that?” asks Layden, when we quiz him on how the notion of VR was brought up as a new initiative at Sony. “Is that when they first started working on it? Or the first time they had the courage to tell management they were working on it? If you look back at the EyeToy cameras that we did back in the PS2 days or the Move controllers or the SingStar microphones – these things always start out as skunkworks projects where someone starts with just a germ of an idea. These kinds of things do not come from top-down management decisions.”
PlayStation VR is the lovechild of PlayStation Move and EyeToy, and it took five and a half years to develop.
“The engineers were building prototypes using sticky tape to strap a Move controller to their heads to see if the camera could track it,” Layden explains. “It was always just chewing gum and sticky tape stuff. It came about by these guys asking questions like ‘what if I put this thing into that thing and then strap that to your head?’ It takes you five and half years to go from those kinds of conversations into making a product out of it. When they finally came to management with it, it was pretty well baked.”
Once Sony leadership was on board, PlayStation VR became a coordinated international effort. “We had teams right here in Silicon Valley working with the team in Tokyo on creating the platform,” Layden explains before elaborating why we’re seeing it finally come to market right now, alongside so many other virtual reality headsets. “A lot of it is because of the ability to put super high fidelity display tech into a small space. Those screens are really state of the art. Also our ability on the manufacturing and engineering side to create a headset that can deliver it all comfortably. We didn’t want it to feel like you’re wearing a football helmet or something super heavy on your head. Those elements have only come together right now. It’s no coincidence that there are other players launching VR in 2016. It seems like this is the year of VR, and now we’ll just see who has the gameplan to reach the most users worldwide.”
PlayStation VR isn’t being treated like a new console by Sony, and Layden claims there is no plan to try and replace the way we currently play games. At least not anytime soon.
“The consoles were on a trajectory that you could predict and understand,” says Layden. “Every generation is faster, smarter, more powerful, more networked, more integrated. All that. But then VR comes in perpendicular to all that. Bam! It just comes crashing in. It’s the same as the effect that the iPhone had when it came into the world of flip phones,” he says, citing a frequently used example to illustrate the paradigm shift that virtual reality represents. “People back then were asking ‘what’s the point? Why do I want to make a phone call on an iPod?’ And then they began to understand what that really meant. VR technology is at that nascent stage right now. It’s really an incubation period, and we need to see what people will do with it.”
On the subject of whether VR will replace traditional game experiences, Layden seems far more pragmatic than the majority of VR soothsayers, no doubt because Sony’s real focus is still the core PlayStation 4. “I think we’ll have games that you sit back on the sofa and play on the big screen for a long time yet. If it’s you and me and FIFA – two guys on the sofa playing in front of the TV – that’s not going away anytime soon, believe me. The really interesting part of VR is how it’s going to create new ways that we experience storytelling and game design. I think it’ll all live in peace and harmony: the big 10-foot experience and the super-immersive VR experience.”
This is just PlayStation VR version 1.0. There will be others, and the team at Sony seems to understand where some of the frustrations lie with this early hardware.
“There are some wires, yes,” says Layden when we grumble about the spaghetti-like mess of cords tumbling out from under our TV. “Remember when cellphones used to be the size of brick? They were analog and really heavy, but it didn’t stop the march of time. This is VR 1.0 right now, and of course we have engineers looking at that and what can be done in future. As we’ve shown for 21 years of iterating on the PlayStation platform I think you’ll see that same kind of energy from us to continue to improve the VR experience over time.”
“When you look at the tech and experience of VR, it’s all a completely new thing,” he says. “For some of the games in VR you could honestly say ‘I could just play that on my TV,’ and in some cases that would be true, but it’s still a very different experience. Just being able to look behind you in a game is something genuinely new and different. 3D audio really changes the experience that you can have inside an environment. Early on though, some of the games will seem kind of like a standard console living room experience – but you’re just doing it in a really immersive fashion. Eventually there will be games that will only be fully realized in a virtual reality headset, and won’t translate to the TV screen. When we start to see those kinds of game, then you’ll know that we’ve broken the back of what VR can be.”
There’s a huge effort to ensure that there’s not a game drought post-launch. Expect a steady flow of new titles.
“We have around 30 games at launch, and we’ll have more than 50 by the end of the year,” Layden says. “We can’t tell third party publishers when they have to launch, but we’d like to get away from that awful sine wave curve of titles,” he says waving his fingers up and down to describe the boom-crash release cycle we usually see after new hardware launches. “We’d like more of a continuum. It’s important that in January we have Farpoint coming out, that supports the gun peripheral that we’ve shown. That’s a whole other level of immersion for shooter games. We have more titles coming out from first party studios in the spring, and we’re tracking stuff from third parties. We’ll start to see some momentum building next year, and we’ll see a lot more publishers start to put VR on their roadmap.”
Nintendo used a three-minute video to reveal its latest hardware this morning, firing the starting gun on the ninth generation of video game consoles – and it turns out to be pretty much exactly what everyone thought it would be. As has long been rumored, the Nintendo Switch is a hybrid system that features a (fairly chunky) iPad Mini-like tablet that can either be plugged into a base station for TV gaming sessions or connected to its innovative controllers for on-the-go play. At first blush, it closely resembled Nvidia’s gaming tablet, the Shield – and in fact uses the same chipset to power its graphics.
The reveal video began with fan-favorite The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild and showed a seamless transition of play from couch to local park, with the player simply picking up the tablet from its base station by the TV and sliding it between the two parts of the controller that he had just neatly dismantled. The action then moved to a series of scenes that revealed more of the hardware features (kickstand for the tablet, second Xbox-style controller, headphone jack, local multiplayer) and – excitingly – more games, including Nintendo staple Mario Kart, a new Super Mario game, Splatoon, basketball game NBA 2K and the RPG blockbuster, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. Here’s the breakdown.
It’s coming out in March 2017
It’s confirmed, it’s happening…you’ll be able to play brand new Nintendo games early next year. No word on price yet.
It’s a tablet that you can also plug into your TV
When you’re playing at home, the Nintendo Switch sits in a docking station that plugs directly into your TV and lets you play games like a conventional game console. When you pull the Switch out of the dock, it immediately transforms into a handheld device that offers the exact same experience on a small screen. It even has a kickstand so it’ll stand up on its own.
It has multiple controller options
It wouldn’t be a modern Nintendo console without a funky controller configuration, and the Switch is no different. Nintendo has dubbed the pair of detachable mini-controllers that come with the Switch Joy-Con. “One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options,” Nintendo said in its press release. You can put the Joy-Con controllers back onto the system or into a “Grip” accessory that Nintendo says mirrors the configuration of a more traditional controller (although it looks enormous.) As with the Wii U, Nintendo will also offer an optional, more conventional-looking Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead.
It’s cartridge-based, just like the 3DS
The reveal video confirmed earlier rumors that games for the Nintendo Switch will come on small cartridges (Nintendo is calling them “Game Cards”) that look very similar in size to those that you plug into your 3DS. In the video we get a brief glimpse of the game being plugged into a slot under a flap in the top right hand edge of the handheld device. No word yet on whether there’ll be an online store for downloading games.
It’s a handheld that’ll boast graphics like a full console
While Nintendo remains very quiet when it comes to the specs of the new console, we do know that it’s Nvidia’s tech powering the Switch. The chip-maker posted a blog at the same time as Nintendo’s announcement, confirming previous rumors that the new console is “powered by the performance of the custom Tegra processor. The high-efficiency scalable processor includes an Nvidia GPU based on the same architecture as the world’s top-performing GeForce gaming graphics cards.” Based on the glimpses of games seen in Nintendo’s video, this means we’ll be playing games like Skyrim on the little handheld.
