After finally showing off just what the PlayStation 4 will look like, Sony has officially unveiled the full technical specifications for their next-gen console, complete with its quite hefty 8GB GDDR5 RAM.
Sporting a single-chip, 8 core x86-64 AMD processor codenamed "Jaguar", the PlayStation 4 will come prepared with a number of next-gen features including 2x USB 3 ports, a AMN next-generation Radeon based graphics engine at 1.84 TFLOPS and a 500GB HDD. Luckily for those who think the 500GB storage isn't enough, you will be able to remove your hard drive and replace it with any other 3.5" one to your taste.
Interestingly, the EyeToy camera that Sony have developed will not be bundled with the product, instead sold separately. What does come inside the box on purchase though is the PlayStation 4 system, one wireless DualShock 4 controller, a HDMI cable, power cable, USB cable for charging the controller and for the first time a mono headset to plug into the controller.
