I am not a gamer. I don’t play any games, and I would never be one if I could. But I do have a PlayStation 4, so I am always playing games on my PS4. I have a PS4 as well as a Xbox One, but I don’t have a PS3. Most of the time when I play, it is with my friends, but sometimes I play alone.
In the past, I have only owned two consoles, an original Xbox and a PlayStation 2. I’ve also bought a PlayStation Vita and a PlayStation Portable, but I haven’t had the time or money to buy a PS3 until now. I have had to switch to a new console recently, so I’m using my PS4 to play my games, but I never really played on it before.
Well, for those of you who haven’t heard of it, the PS4 is a 32-bit console, meaning it has an architecture similar to a PC, but it isn’t exactly the same as a PC in terms of graphics. It’s also a bit slower than a PC, which is why you see console-specific FPS games such as Call of Duty on PS4.
I have seen some people get into the DVR thing, which I think is a great idea. Unfortunately, it seems to become a lot of hassle. The only way to play DVR games is to get a Sony DVR. They charge a pretty penny for it, but they make it very easy to setup. It can even be done via the internet. So I see no problem letting a lot of people switch over to a streaming DVR.
The one gripe I have is that it does take up a lot of space, even on the PS4. The Sony DVR is about the size of a paperback book, so it takes up a lot of space. That may be a deal breaker for some, but for the majority of people I know it won’t matter. Also, you only need a Sony DVR if you have a Playstation Plus subscription.
It’s also possible to stream a local movie or TV show to the PS4 from your computer, and I just saw a trailer from Fox that shows how to do this.
While it is true that you can get a local DVR to watch TV, movies, and other videos from your computer, it is not the same thing as a streaming DVR. It is an app that is downloaded onto your computer to provide that streaming service.
The difference is that if you don’t have a PS4 you simply use your laptop as a TV receiver, and you can use it with an app on your computer. If you have a PS4, you can stream a TV show on your computer, but you will need to download the app into your PS4 to get it going.
This is also one of those things that can be done with a PS4, but it takes a bit of time and effort, and the app is not as seamless as streaming. There is also the issue of battery life, as if you’re watching a show on TV while playing a game, you will likely be using all your power for the TV screen.
The PS4 does not do DVR playback, so if you want to play a show on your PS4, you will need a DVR. You can use the PS4 to stream just about anything, it’s just not as seamless as the PS3.
