The PlayStation 4, abbreviated as PS4, is a video game console from Sony. It is the successor to the PlayStation 3, and along with the Xbox One and Switch, is part of the eighth console generation. As with other PlayStation consoles since the PS3, it has access to PlayStation Network. The initial model was released in November 2013.

As with the PS3 before it, the PS4 is marketed as a high-definition console and boasts improved capabilities over that previous model, such as the ability to record and stream live gameplay. However, it lacks the broad base format support shared by previous generations in the PlayStation family, requiring its own library of games and peripheral hardware. Sony uses the PlayStation Network and the PlayStation Now service, described further in this article, as a means of distributing select software from earlier platforms.

As of Fall 2016, Sony has added two variant models to the PS4 family of devices. The high-end PS4 Pro is capable of displaying and recording games in the emerging 4K Ultra HD (UHD) standard. The standard Slim model replaces the original model with a more energy-efficient unit smaller in size and weight, though retaining many of the original unit's features in a like manner to previous PlayStation redesigns.

Avatars[edit | edit source]

Similar to the above, avatars also made a return to the PlayStation 4. Users are able to purchase or obtain them via official promotions and then set them on their profile. In the case of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Sony hosted a promotional that was tied to the player's progress in the game as well as their trophy progression in the game. As the player completed more chapters and eventually achieved the platinum trophy, they would receive an official e-mail with three separate codes for three avatar bundles.

Below is a list of Final Fantasy video games where players are able to obtain avatars on the PlayStation 4:

  • Dissidia Final Fantasy NT
  • Final Fantasy VII Remake
  • Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward
  • World of Final Fantasy

Note: All Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward avatars are free on the PlayStation Store.
