E3 2013: All the PS4 Specs You Need to Know

With Sony’s Xbox One-destroying conference last night, the Internet has been abuzz with talks about the PlayStation 4. Though it’s certainly way, way, way too early to say this generation belong to Sony, all signs (as of right now, and only right now, mind you) are pointing to Sony roundhouse-kicking poor Microsoft into oblivion.

Now that Sony’s presentation has come and gone, we have all the official specs for their beautiful new toy. Check them out below.

    I just have one quick question. Will the DualShock 4 be compatible with the 3rd party charger I have now for the PS3? It’s not the end of the world if it isn’t, but it would be nice if it is.

    I don’t think so, as the DualShock 4 will reportedly use a Micro-B USB instead of the DualShock 3’s Mini-B.

    Ok, thanks for taking the time to let me know! Hope you have a great time @ E3!
