It's time, folks. Almost two decades after the launch of the original PlayStation, it's time to welcome in a new era of gaming with Sony's fourth-generation machine.

The PS4, launching in the US today and heading to European stores later this month, will compete against Nintendo's Wii U and Microsoft's Xbox One in the latest installment of the so-called console wars.

Priced at $399 (£349), and with over a million pre-orders already in the bag, this is Sony's latest and greatest gaming machine. So as our friends across the pond wake up in anticipation of console deliveries, let's pose the question: what excites you most about the PS4?

Better looking PC games.

Better looking PC games.

This x10000!, Optimised better PC games rather than ports that have been poorly coded, With consoles using x86 hardware hopefully we should get some great looking games now.
Absolutely nothing, even as a technology fan and PS Vita owner I can honestly say nothing about the PS4 (and PS3 before it) has made me interested.

I've got a good PC with a decent graphics card, for me than invalidates any need for a TV attached console of any kind. The only interesting thing about the XBox One for me is the TV and other features and that's probably US focussed anyway so kinda moot…

I like the Vita (when a rare decent game shows up) because I can play it on the train, on London commuter trains it needs to be handheld!
I am not excited. Yet.

What I need to see is a game which was impossible on the 360/PS3 generation. I don't mean to say that the 360 can run the same games at the same quality - what I mean is there's no practical difference between, say, Assassin's Creed 4 on PS3 or PS4 other than price.

On the 360, it didn't take long for a game to happen which would have been impossible on the Xbox generation: Dead Rising. A totally new way to play which simply wasn't possible on the older hardware.

When the PS4 and XBox One have exclusives which would never have been possible on the current gen, even at a lower resolution, then I may be interested. I suspect the defining feature of the new hardware, therefore, is how much RAM it has, not the CPU or GPU.

From what I have read the AC 4 PS4 version has smoother frame rates and higher draw distance, so you see more detail.
