New video shows PS4 shopping, sharing, playing

PlayStation 4 can be played entirely offline, but a new video from Sony teases the many social and convenience features you might miss out on. Watch a day in the life of your typical twenty-something guy who lives in a garage with his PS4 and HDTV.

Don't ask us why Brian thought someone who doesn't even own Killzone: Shadow Fall would be such a great help in multiplayer. At least Will was able to get into the action quickly by downloading the multiplayer first while browsing through the other titles the PS4 has to offer.

On top of easier shopping and sharing, friends will be able to give a virtual thumbs up to each other's actions. Finally, the recognition we deserve for pouring dozens of hours into Platinum Trophies!

What do you think of PS4's new interface? Will it match the decor of your live-in garage?

    This video was painful to watch... at the same time to more casual gamers it probably looks cool. Still couldn't help cringing though.

    I'd like to know, how exactly, the male to female ratio of gamers measures up on PSN. To me it seems that about half of the self-described female gamers are probably male. The female gamer is so allusive 8(

    Sarah is the true alpha in that relationship.

    If I were this guy, I'd kill myself right now. These marketing guys are plain stupid.

    Is it just me or is Will kind of creepin' on Sarah via PSN?

    That's the first thing I noticed

    All these features look cool, but I won't own a PS4 any time soon. Money, that's why. That and the fact that my PS3 is only a year and a half old. I still have lots of games to play By the way... I want a Sarah in my life

    Fade In: Hipster "dude" arriving in his downtown New York studio apartment, you can see in the background his bike that he rides everyday to Starbucks so he may sit among his own people, observe as he eats a breakfast pizza with orange juice, he sits down to play a game, sucks at it, watches a video and talks to himself, later he is messaged by another hipster looking for aid in his inevitable quest to not need someone to hold his hand while playing a game, hipster 1 demonstrates his inability to speak properly and jumps to the PS store to download Killzone. Well I like how they show off these features, some of them cool, some of them gimmicky, regardless of how it looks like steams hub, but jeez this narrative was terrible.

    The style of the video itself is cringe-worthy in how much is trying to imitate how gamers play and interact, and utterly failing at capturing that. BUT I like that it does put into visual a couple of cool features that had my attention even since they announced the PS4, such as being able to choose what part of the game to download first so you can start playing what you want ASAP. And while not strictly NEW features, it's cool that now you'll be able to swap between tasks and jump back to what you were playing, and also being able to download and manage your account and games from your smart-phone. Of course, whether this will be as fast as the video shows remains to be seen, but still, it looks way smoother and better than the current, clunky PS3 interface.
