In one of the worst kept secrets of the century, Sony revealed the PlayStation 4. Almost. Chris Morris:
While the PS4 will feature improved graphical performance, Sony plans to use more than flashy hardware to appease finicky gamers. The system will highlight social aspects, such as the ability to share gaming footage. It will include a new version of the company’s classic DualShock game controller, now featuring a touchpad, motion controls, and a built-in ‘share’ button.
PS4 is all about colorful slides and PowerPoint bullet points. No demonstration units, no pricing, no ship date. Sony is channeling Microsoft and increasingly becoming irrelevant.
