In addition, the 2-minute trailer shows off the games that are coming out for Sony's next-gen, including 24 PS4 exclusives, the 14 award-winning studios that are creating these exclusive games and the 180 games that are being developed for the console.
It's by far different from the other PS4 trailers that have appeared, which are either cinematic or very nostalgic. This trailer touts the achievements and expectations of PS4 as a next-gen console, perhaps as a reminder that it is still "The Best Place to Play," as per the ad.
Sony has brought back the party chat with the PS4, and the next-gen will have the capacity to support up to eight players.
GameSpot found the confirmation on PlayStation Blog via the comments, where Sid Shuman, social media manager, said, "Party Voice Chat will support up to 8 players on PS4, like PS Vita."
Not only that, PS4 players can also communicate to those playing the PS Vita via cross-platform chat.
In addition, another feature will be made available at launch for the PS4, which is the use of real names for your account on the PlayStation Network. Back in February, Sony has been about making gaming a more social experience, one that is shared among friends in a more expansive manner.
For that, using your real name in PSN allows you to also be connected to your online networks, hence the use of real names, reports Kotaku. Both Microsoft and Sony next-gen consoles offer the real name feature, but only Sony is said to be making the feature available at launch.
Still, if you want to remain anonymous and keep your social network connections separate from your gaming life, using aliases works just as well.
In an exclusive interview with Eurogamer, the developers were said to re-master the core level of mechanics for the game, increase the textures on the game and rebuild certain areas in the game.
Particularly, "DC Universe Online's" first 30 character levels will see pretty major alternations, and according to Eurogamer, hundreds of details have also been re-worked to make the entire game more seamless.
