It also allows developers who choose to utilize the functionality to enable easy player identification and screen adjustment functionalities when gamers play with friends in the same room.

Sony has not only payed close attention in delivering impressive hardware that’s easy to program for but also ensuring this tech is affordable come day one.  I believe they surprised many when they announced the PlayStation 4 would cost $399. With a price only $50 more dollars than a Wii U and $100 dollars less than a Xbox One, they are in a great position to take over the market. It’s fantastic to see how much Sony has listened to the gaming community and they look to give the competition one heck of a fight this next generation.

Avid gamer who enjoys the older nostalgic titles as much as the newest AAA releases. Remakes from the classic 8 and 16 bit era are some my absolute favorite titles. I also enjoy experiencing new IP's on each and every platform, especially when the creators give the game an artistic look and unique presentation never seen before. I've been lucky enough to start out gaming on the NES. Since this rebirth of the industry, I have witnessed the evolution of gaming, both in its incredible growth in overall popularity and as an entertainment medium juggernaut. With the next generation of gaming upon us, there simply hasn't been a better time to be a gamer and I can't wait to experience all that it has to offer.
