Sony just announced the new PlayStation 4 last night. Thankfully I didn’t wait till 4:30 in the morning to catch the event, it seems Sony didn’t even display the console during the launch event. PlayStation 4 looks good on paper though – “supercharged PC architecture” powered by an 8-core X86 based processor, 8GB GDDR5 RAM, new DualShock 4 controller. But Sony didn’t announce anything you’d normally expect at a launch event – pricing and wide availability. Alright, they later on did say they’re pushing for a holiday season market availability.

That shouldn’t let you down. There are plenty of new enhancements in the PlayStation 4 for fans. The console now comes embedded with a 3D camera that tracks each controller connected to it. The processor is, well for a lack of a better word, quite powerful. PlayStation 4 will come with a second processor just to handle uploads and downloads in the background. Being an Xbox 360 user myself, I’d love to see that on the Xbox too. PlayStation 4 also locks in several new “social” features, as you’d expect from a next-gen console.

Microsoft is also expected to announce its revised Xbox console sometime later this year. I’m keeping an eye out for that one!
