PlayStation 4 has many new features most of which are focus on making the Gaming experience much more social. The users will use Gaikai to share content and even their own let other players connect and play through their PlayStation. This feature will surely be liked by Gamers. Also you can record a piece of your gameplay and share it with other gamers.

The Most concerning part of the announcement was that the PlayStation 4 is not backward compatible which means PlayStation Games can not run on it. This is surely a problem because PlayStation 3 has hosted some of the best games and if the access is not there, PlayStation 4 is bound to loose market.
The New PlayStation has a new Controller with it. The controller was leaked few days before the announcement.
