The box of the console shown on NEOGAF shows that the console supports 220v-240v. Do you think that it actually features a universal PSU, meaning that, like with Playstation 3 & 4, it actually supports 100v-240v?, although I cannot remember if this is written on any of the console boxes?
S'a good question. It certainly seems odd to launch a product in 2016 that doesn't support 110V-240V, 'cos switch-mode power supplies operating from a wide voltage range is by no means new technology, but a quick few minutes on Google Images has turned up exactly nothing in the way of pictures of the *back* of a current PS4 retail box.
There's a good chance that it is only 220-240v for most and 110v where required. The Xbox is done in such a way as well. It's a rather frustrating thing and it cost me $70 USD to buy a new power adapter for mine ... but so be it. That's still cheaper than buying a new console, I suppose.
No optical out? Come on, Sony! Guess they thought they didn't need it anyway as they already decided CD playback was something the PS4 didn't need to do...
Well, I will wait for Neo and Scorpio before I decide whether or not to upgrade. Most likely I will just wait for the next generation proper.
That still frosts my gears. Seriously, Sony? No Red Book support? The Sega Mega CD could play audio CDs, for gawd's sake - and at £300 a console I don't think the fractions of a pence a licence would cost you is going to bankrupt the company.
I have the first Japanese 60GB PS3 model that came with Super Audio support. Wasn't this feature removed entirely for the European batch, or did it came together at first there as well? I have quite a few Super Audio CDs but the PS3 had no analogue multichannel output so could only listen in stereo
Yep, that was removed from the second European batch, as far as I remember. Sony is ... well, Sony.
No retail box here either, but on the bottom of the (UK purchased) PS4 itself is a black on black sticker that says 220 - 240V as well.
