What is PlayStation?
PlayStation is a video game console originally manufactured by Sony. It was first released on September 15, 1995, in Japan and November 10, 1995, in North America. The PlayStation represents the initial step in Sony’s strategy of creating their own gaming platform away from Nintendo and Microsoft. PlayStation is home to a variety of games for both console and portable systems. But the question is when did the PS4 come out?
The PlayStation 4
The PlayStation 4 was launched on November 15, 2013, in Japan, November 29, 2013, in Europe, and December 5, 2013, in North America. It competes with the Xbox One and Nintendo Wii U consoles. Sony has stated that its goal is to have over 100 million PlayStation 4 units sold by March 2016.
The power of the PS4 rests on its 8-core AMD x86 Jaguar CPU clocked at 2GHz with a GDDR5 memory module running at 176GB/ s. The AMD GPU is the Radeon Graphics Core Next (GCN) series and can handle 4K games and videos playback, with 8GB of GDDR5 RAM connected to it through a 256-bit bus.
The console has an semi-custom chipset manufactured by AMD, with code named “Pardus”. It contains 8 cores (2×4), which are clocked at 2GHz each, as well as an ARM1176J ZF-S core clocked at 1.84GHz and a PowerVR SGX544 graphics processor.
The DualShock 4 controller was designed specifically for the PS4, weighing in at around 290g without the battery pack and featuring updated electronics including 6Axis motion sensing, 3D printing capabilities, voice recognition, and thousands of buttons.
The PlayStation 4 Slim
The PlayStation 4 Slim was launched on September 15, 2016, by Sony Interactive Entertainment as an updated version of the PlayStation 4. It replaces the original PS4.

The console supports 4K video playback and Dolby Atmos sound technology. It also comes with a 1TB hard drive which can be replaced by an expansion unit. The Slim model is also slightly cheaper than the original PlayStation 4.
