The PlayStation 4 isn’t merely a beyond state-of-the-art gaming console that sets a brave new standard for what Next Gen gaming can and should be – it’s a one-size-fits-all, virtual Swiss Army Knife of endless entertainment possibilities. Anyone in your family who loves gaming will love everything about the PS4. Along with breathtaking graphics and mind blowing processing speed, the PS4 includes a completely reimagined, amazingly intuitive controller that is so immersive and so in tune with you with its ultra sensitive six-axis sensor and equally innovative touch pad, it will forever change the way you play and interact with games. And that’s just the gaming component of the PS4.

PlayStation 4What makes this console a worthy candidate to be the centerpiece of your entire entertainment universe is the added multimedia features it offers. It also just so happens to be one of the finest Blu-ray players on the market and that fact alone is enough of a reason to justify buying one. It’s also an excellent way to take advantage of streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus and soon, HBO Go.

Connect it to your PC and it’s an excellent way to experience your digital photo collection, too. Music lovers will love how beautifully it integrates into their existing surround sound setup, making it easily accessible for listening to digital music or watching pre-recorded or live concerts. The PS4 is a great way to keep the kids (and significant others for that matter) occupied and offers plenty of traditional video games as well as a huge library of educational games. Fifa

Little Big Planet 2 (for the PS3) is a game I highly recommend for gamers of all ages. It’s exclusive to PlayStation consoles and can be played with two people or one person at a time. What I love most about this game is that it allows players to do so much more than play a game. It actually allows gamers to create actual games, levels and worlds, which they can then upload and share with other players across the globe. So far more than 6 million user created levels have been uploaded for all the world to play. You can preorder the next release for the PS4 called Little Big Planet 3.

Little Big Planet3Long story short: The PS4 has everything you could ever want in a gaming console. So, whether you’re a diehard Sony Fangirl, a hardcore gamer with way too much free time on your hands, or a casual interactive entertainment devotee, the PS4 has something for everyone.
