A new trailer for the PS4 has been revealed, and it's a simple, back-to-basics teaser that highlights some of th console's major hardware bullet points, all while swooping and zooming around the attractive black rhombus-shaped unit.

The specifications featured in the trailer include the main processor, which is a shared GPU-CPU AMD x86 custom chip, with a a next-generation Radeon GPU running at 1.84 TFLOPS. There's 8GB of GDDR5 memory, a 6xCAV Blu-ray drive, 500GB HDD and AV outputs include Digital Out and HDMI. Connectivity-wise, the PS4 supports USB, AUX, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1.

It's an impressive line-up of tech, all crammed into a console-sized package that promises CPU speeds 10x that of the PS3. We've heard all sorts of arguments about its power comparison with the Xbox One, but we'll only know the real differences when both units are in the wild, which isn't long now.
