Evolutions of technological gaming systems generally include subtle visual differences, but exponentially greater interior systems and performance upgrades. How does the evolution of the Playstation to its 4th generation look and performed when compared to previous versions?

In this episode, Mike introduces the Playstation 4 and talks about the physical aesthetic of the gaming system. From its sleek design to its upright placement, the Playstation 4 has a minimal appearance that would allow it to fit into any space. Mike and Tim get into a discussion about the subtle design changes between each generation and talk specifically about the controller. The controller looks very similar to the original one for the Playstation 2 from over a decade ago with the major differences being the materials that add lots of comfort to the user. Lastly, Mike and Tim talk about virtual reality and how the Playstation 4 is now entering a world of multi-dimensional gaming.
